my name is Simon

A photograph documents a happy time in your life & is something to look back on.

What I do is record those moments & make them last.

I am lucky to do what I love for a living & I try not to lose sight of that.

Since photographing my first wedding in 2007, I have been fortunate enough to photograph weddings all across the UK, extensively throughout London & further afield (Central Park in New York City, Mount Etna in Sicily & St. Paul’s Cathedral in London are a few of my favourites).

It never gets boring, each week brings new possibilities & the next photo is always there to be taken.

I believe in a natural style of photography which ensures you won't spend your wedding day constantly posing for photos, I will find the moments rather than stage them. Just like every other day in your life, nothing on your wedding day should be forced.

A Few Things I Have Done At Weddings:

  • Climbed up a ladder for a group photo
  • Been raised 15 feet in the air by a farm tractor
  • Given countless guests lifts from the church to the reception
  • Drove a guest into town to use a cash point
  • Hung out of innumerable windows for group photos
  • Clambered across the roof of numerous hotels
  • Been directed into the wrong wedding reception
  • Helped the groom with the buttonholes (a regular occurrence)
  • Drove a golf buggy
  • I have shot weddings in fields, barns hotels, stately homes, back gardens, working men’s clubs & everywhere in between.

    In that time I have seen every kind of occasion & I know the memories are the same no matter where or how you choose to get married.

    I still feel a sense of pride each time a couple trust me to photograph their wedding.

    where are you based?

    I live in London but I travel nationwide (and abroad) to photograph weddings.

    I have wheels, a passport & a strong sense of adventure so I am always happy to travel to your wedding wherever it is taking place.

    Photographing at different venues & meeting people from all over the world keeps it fresh to me, I can’t imagine shooting at the same church every week.

    I regularly work in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex & throughout the UK.

    Tell Us About You?

    I grew up in Darlington in the north east of England & spent my time watching Star Wars on VHS, making mixed tapes for the car & smashing my Mum’s greenhouse with a football.

    I moved to London in 2004 & I’ve moved around a fair bit in that time from Islington (7 people in 1 house!) to Camden, Ladbroke Grove to Shoreditch, Seven Sisters (my first photo studio) to Walthamstow.

    I started taking photography seriously back in 2005. Then after picking up a Walker Evans photo book during a road trip in California I decided photography would become my life.

    In 2007 I got my first commissions & quit the day job soon after & I have been lucky to shoot all sorts over the years: headshots, fashion, sports, corporate, live music & of course weddings.
