wedding photographer in Dorset

I am a Dorset Wedding Photographer based in Christchurch, who does a perfect blend of natural portraits and documentary style photography to storybook your day. I like to stand back and let your day run in it's own natural course and get pictures which truly remind you of the fantastic time you had. I also do think there is a place for traditional group shots and portraiture but in a relaxed manner which doesn't take over. Believe me, when I say this - 'We will have fun'

Doing Wedding photography, in my mind, is one of the best careers in the world. It is an incredible honour and one I don't take likely. I am fully trained and qualified with the Guild of Wedding Photographers.

If you are planning your big day and want to see more of my work please take a look at the video further down this page or my latest 'story' which you will see a full wedding and some of my memories.

Thank you for looking at my site I hope to hear from you soon.

'Comments'about my work

Christchurch wedding photographer

'Thank you so much for everything, Charles. We are so pleased with the pictures you captured of our special day; they truly document the day in its entirety and we can see the story behind each image. From initial contact through to receipt of our photos, the service you provided was first class. You are a lovely, talented man who made us feel totally at ease. We consider ourselves so lucky that we found you as we could not have asked for better! '

'We absolutely LOVE the photos Charles took of our wedding at Highcliffe castle. We are so happy to have them all to keep to remember our special day. Not being able to be everywhere at all times throughout the day, we also now have some new moments to be able to remember that we would otherwise have missed, so HUGE thanks again for capturing all our loved ones and happy memories so incredibly well. We will treasure these for a lifetime.'

This Dorset Wedding was a complete joy from beginning to end. Being on one of the hottest days of 2019 made it a day not for the jackets but of shade and the fizzy stuff.... see more
