What do I work as a wedding photographer? How far am I prepared to travel?
As a London wedding photographer, you can imagine that I do more London weddings than anywhere else. However, having lived in Sussex and having many contacts to the South of London and across the Home Counties, my work very frequently takes me down to the South Coast, up into East Anglia and out to the West.

It would be fair to say that many of my more far-flung weddings have been for friends or family, but by no means all. I have travelled a long way to photograph people I don’t know at all. Sometimes those weddings stand out – exploring new venues in new locations can enhance creativity and fun.
Even relatively nearby weddings may need an overnight stay if the coverage required is very lengthy. Very often couples have made a block booking with a hotel – and very often an expected guest’s no show has made a room available which the bride and groom would rather we used.
