A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
With a focus for the natural moments
A wedding photographer who captures elegant, natural and warm moments of your special day.
Hello! I’m Ben and I am a full-time wedding photographer based in beautiful rural Somerset.
I am privileged to do a job that I love so much, capturing the love of two people as they merge their families to one, marking the start of their very own family and the continuation of an already incredible story that brought them there.
Born in the mid 80s, my parents created so many opportunities for me and my brother, and to whom I'm forever grateful for their love and support.
Fast forward a generation and I too watched my first-born, Imogen, begin her own journey of life in 2010 with my fiancé Samantha, followed two years later with the arrival of my son, Oliver. The four of us plus Coco the black and white cat, and we've always loved capturing the special times as well as the everyday.
We love life's moments, the special ones and the seemingly ordinary. Trips to the theme park, visiting family each Sunday, watching the miles roll by as we drive. Holding hands, tucking in the little ones to bed each evening and giving them a goodnight kiss.
These small things we often take for granted are actually the big things. These things are special, these moments are extraordinary.
"Every wedding is unique, a once in a lifetime celebration of two families merging to one"
The stunning dress, the smart tux, the rings. The something borrowed, the something blue, the something old and the something new...all these things make great weddings. What really makes a wedding, it's the people, the characters and the emotions.
I love what I do and I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph over 100 weddings which have varied from the intimate to the majestic, from the rustic to the modern. But regardless of size or theme, there is one aspect to all which I look for throughout the day, and that’s emotion.
From elation to pride, apprehension to kindness, joy and tears, such a diversity of human emotion can be found on a wedding day.
This is what makes them so extraordinary, so unique to shoot. Understanding how to do this subtly and sympathetically is central to what I do.
