Marcus here, I'm a wedding photographer based in the town of Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. The vast majority of my weddings occur within the Cotswold's. However, my work often takes me all over the UK. I have been lucky enough to photograph at some outstanding wedding venues such as Elmore court, Matara center, Tewkesbury Abbey, Naas court farm, Manor by the lake, Clearwell castle, Tithe barn, Chicheley Hall the list goes on...

My Wedding photography is about artistically documenting your day with as little disturbance as possible. I love to catch people in the moment like dad busting into tears when he sees his daughter in the dress... And then later all over the dance floor after one too many. 


Although 95% of my work is modern photojournalism. Another favorite part is couple portraits. I know going head to head with a camera isn't everyone's cup of tea so this is something I take on request only.

I approach wedding photography similar to street photography. It's about good composition, light and most importantly letting the moment arise. I can't really say why I like wedding photography the most, but its what I've chosen to concentrate on, there's something special about capturing a very specific time in a couple's life, probably the ultimate opportunity for documentary photography...

'' You where amazing! Thankyou so much much! ''

''Marcus met with us prior to the wedding and travelled some distance on both occasions to the venue. Marcus’s enthusiasm for photography is wonderful. Marcus brought so much talent to the wedding with his own style and creative and creative ideas we instantly knew that we would be impressed with the results and we really were. Again, we cannot thank Marcus enough. Warm, friendly, professional photographer who managed to capture magical family moments and capture the emotion of the day with his unique work. A highly recommended photographer who went out of his way to ensure he captured the entire day from start to finish we would most definitely recommend again.''

''From the moment I arrived (late!) to the last sparkler in the evening, Marcus was a constant calming influence all the way through. He's so easy going and open minded that the formal photos were easy to get. As for the informal and candid shots, well, all I can say is that he is obviously a very dapper ninja. I didn't notice him once catching all the lovely moments with our guests that I would have otherwise have missed, and we had lots of fun doing the portraits of just the two of us. From one photographer to another - keep up the good work! You are well on your way!''
