I am a British wedding photographer based in the stunning Charente region of France.  This area is a dream for wedding photography with beautiful vineyards for wine and Cognac, and the unspoilt Charente river running through the county.   

I began my career in film and television, but in 1995 I made the decision to leave the business to pursue my passion, photography.

I opened a photographic studio near Cambridge and gained membership of the BIPP and the MPA (Master Photographer's Association).

I am truly passionate about photography, and strive to deliver an album that is full of special memories for the bride and groom.   

I think I have the best job in the world.   Living in the stunning Charente region of France and spending my working hours photographing couples during the happiest day of their lives.

What could be more satisfying than being part of their special day, capturing both the hilarious and intimate moments that will remain with them forever.  

I have shot many weddings in the Poitou Charente, which is divided into four departments; the Charente, Charente Maritime, Deux Sevre and the Vienne. Although English is my first language I can speak French to a good standard and have photographed several French weddings.  

Angouleme is my home town and the capital of the Charente.  However, throughout the Charente from Chalais and Barbezieux in the south to  Ruffec and Confolens in the north there are some spectacular wedding venues that attract couples from all over the world seeking something a bit different for their wedding day.

I believe that wedding photography is about capturing the true emotion of the day. However, this is only possible if the couple are relaxed and comfortable with their photographer.  I feel it is vitally important to build up a relationship with the couple from the first emails and the initial meeting, so that when the big day arrives we've already forged a good rapport.  

My second rule is not to dominate the couple's day.  I have been to weddings where the photographer takes over and turns the day into a photo shoot.  I like to be as un-obtrusive as possible, capturing what I see.  I try to avoid stylised poses and try and keep things natural and fun. There is obviously some arranging when groups are involved, but I like to keep these as relaxed as possible
