Romantic, Creative, and Beautiful Wedding Photography
Welcome! I’m Peter, a Derbyshire Wedding Photographer. I capture romantic, artistic and beautiful wedding photography across Derbyshire, The Midlands, and throughout the UK.
My Wedding Photography
Being a Wedding Photographer is really fantastic. I get to photograph people at the happiest moment of their lives.
Our approach to wedding photography is simple. We use storytelling to capture the special moments of your celebration. Some of my photography is journalistic and 'fly on the wall' where I capture the natural magic of your wedding day as it unfolds. But I also create a little magic of my own whilst telling the full story of your special day. My approach as photographer will make your day as memorable as can be. A combination of your personal style with a sprinkle of my artistic storytelling will set the scene for your dream wedding, to remember again and again.
Our goal is to give you the most beautiful and artistic photographs of your wedding while keeping the experience fun and relaxed, and without interrupting the flow of your wedding day. We are the first to arrive and the very last to leave - from your rehearsal, brides breakfast, preparation, ceremony, group and newlywed portraits, reception, cutting of the cake all the way through to the last dance. We are with you every step of the way.
The Most Important Thing
Throughout your day, I’ll be there with you as a friend and aide as well as your wedding photographer. While it’s my job to get the best possible photos of you I can, I also aim to support you as a couple. After all, the most important thing about your wedding is you!
I love what I do and am passionate about giving you a permanent memory of the romance, sincerity, intimacy and closeness of your celebration. Moments you and your loved ones will enjoy for years to come.
One of the greatest parts of being a wedding photographer is knowing that in 100 years your great-grandchildren could be looking at my photos of your wedding. It is true that older images fascinate younger generations.
Today’s wedding photographs may be framed and cherished by people not yet born. So it’s vital, I think, that you have some truly fantastic portraits of you together. Some portraits that capture your love and the intimate happiness of the wedding, and also some epic WOW shots that reflect the fact this is a WOW moment in your lives!
In addition, I want you to have a portfolio that truly captures all the moments, all the magic, all the emotion. Photos that you’ll be looking through with a shared smile for years to come. I’m aiming to provide a sequence of photographs that bring back all of your memories. All those fleeting moments of laughter and celebration.

I think it is important that we feel comfortable with each other, so I always suggest we meet to get to know each other before either of us commit to anything. I will be at your side for much of the most important day of your life: we have to be a good fit for each other! It gives you the opportunity to meet me and see the kind of photography we capture in real life.
Wedding photos that are timeless, romantic, and elegant
During your day we will combine being a 'Photo Maker' with being a 'Photo Taker' to give you the best blend of photojournalism and 'Vanity Fair' style photographs.
Our wedding photography starts at the beginning of the day from the bridal breakfast through to the very last dance.
Included in our normal photography coverage are:
- your preparations as bride and groom (often called 'getting ready')
- bridal breakfast
- behind the scenes photography of bridesmaids and groomsmen
- bridal portraits
- your beautiful ceremony
- newlywed portraits
- group photographs
- your reception and speeches
- cutting the cake
- the full evening celebration right up to the last dance!
Don't let the fact that I live in Derbyshire stop you from getting in contact...I love to travel!
A Little Wedding Photographer Confession...
I have a bit of a thing for wedding albums...I love them!
Your wedding album has to be amazing. It should make your jaw drop open and your eyes fill with tears! Every Album we produce is a bespoke piece of Italian art.
Just In Case You Were Wondering...
My wife and I got married way back in 1992 and we had what would be described as traditional wedding photos taken. Our wedding photographer was a nice chap but we have been left with an album with some very stiff looking people in groups, and nothing else. In those days, that was all you would expect.
When we set up our wedding photography business we decided to provide couples with what we now wish that we had been able to have. Our wedding photography is based around four key areas:
- We capture the beautiful story of your wedding - from start to finish (yes up to the very last dance)
- We focus on you, and your guests celebrating and enjoying the day with you
- We make sure we have some WOW for you to weep over later :)
- We create a beautiful album for you to treasure your memories
If you’d like to find out more about having me as your photographer, do get in touch. We’d love to hear your plans, so do feel free to tell us all about yourselves and what you have in mind for your big day.
We are based in Derbyshire and serve the whole UK. So, do get in touch wherever you are planning to get married.
We absolutely loved the big reveal moment, when we were able to see the photos for the first time and be transported back to the day. The photos really captured the memories so well and that first reveal was really emotional! Peter is really friendly, selfless and accommodating and will bend over backwards to ensure that he captures the great photos you want.
