“I come to photograph your wedding dress hanging patiently, soft light falling across the room.
I could use the camera flash to create a stylised version of the scene and the result is simply a cool picture of your dress, but not that dress on that day at that very moment. This is how I see wedding photography”
Mark The Wedding Photographer.
I’m a Ribble Valley valley, near Clitheroe based wedding photographer. I have a little family and we like forest adventures and kitchen dancing. I am a massive wedding fan and passionate about documenting love. Good coffee, cake, music, fresh air and buying shoes keep me going. Photography is all I have ever done, through college and university, as a teacher and professional. I hope my pictures capture more than details, smiles and tears. I hope they make you feel, remember and inspire. I enjoy photographing weddings all over the UK and beyond and have been featured in numerous magazines as well as most major wedding blogs including ‘Love My Dress’ ‘Rock Your Wedding’ and ‘Boho-Weddings’. Have a look around and if you like what I do, I’d love for you to say hello via Instagram, Facebook or feel free to drop me an email.

Ribble Valley wedding photographer
Although I am a Ribble Valley wedding Photographer and photograph lots of weddings around Clitheroe, Settle and Blackburn I also photograph weddings all over the country and the odd destination wedding. My local wedding venues include
I have photographed these venues many times and know them very well.
I have photographed many weddings all across the country and beyond. Because my style is ‘natural wedding photography’ I specialise in responding to the locations and events in front of me. This means I am just as comfortable photographing at a new venue as I am my local wedding venues.
