I have in fact been a full time wedding photographer for 28 years now when I opened my studio in Earley, Reading in 1983 with my father. During this time I have photographed over one thousand weddings from large city hotels, Scottish castles, Cathedrals etc…with hundreds of guests right down to small intimate ones with only a handful present. In this period I have developed and refined my wedding photography style which I would now describe as pure documentary. You will also hear other terms – ‘wedding photojournalism,’ ‘reportage wedding photography’ etc….These are largely academic and basically all mean the same. You just have to remember that I will not direct, pose or prompt. In fact I would say I’m one of just a handful in the UK who works unswervingly this way.
‘Thanks again Neil. Mark and I are completely delighted with your work and you’re amongst the top wedding photojournalists in the UK — we looked at the best in the UK amongst many, many others but are so happy we went with you. You are at least as talented, if not more so, far better value and a great person to boot! Bonnie’
As well as photographing weddings in the Berkshire area I also travel further afield. I regularly photograph weddings in London as well as the home counties – Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and Essex. I am also an international wedding photographer having photographed weddings in The Netherlands, France, Portugal and more recently even as far as Australia.
Please feel free to browse my website for further information. You can see the latest news and my most recent work on the blog as well as my favourite wedding photographs from over the years in the gallery section If you would like more information or would like to arrange an informal meeting please feel free to contact me
Thank you for showing an interest in my wedding photography and i look forward to hearing from you.
‘We couldn’t have received better photo’s than these. We’re amazed at the moments that you captured for us, and in such a beautiful way. Our day was fun, happy and relaxed.. and these photo’s show that. We couldn’t be more happy Neil. We thank you so much for giving us something that we will treasure forever.
Anyone thinking of getting married soon… USE Neil. Such a lovely guy to go with his amazing skills… the proof is all above!!
Thank you…’ Georgia and Steffan

Here’s some favourites from Ashley and Jason’s wedding at The All Star Lanes Bowling Alley in Brick Lane.
This was my second wedding of 2013 and it was certainly one to remember. They decided on a 50′s theme with Ashley’s choice of wedding dress and also the venue for the reception which also had a 50′s feel to it. The day actually started at The Charlotte St Hotel in the West End where Ashley and Jason got ready………..
Congratulations to Amanda and Paul who recently got married at The Calcot Hotel in Reading.
It was great to be back there again after many years of absence and it was where I used to photograph lots of weddings early in my career. It was also great to meet up again with my previous clients and good friends Zoe (Amanda’s daughter) and Mark Harris whose wedding I also photographed back in 2009 at The Rivermead Centre
Many congratulations to Samantha and Nick who tied the knot at Gaynes Park last August.
In all my years of photographing weddings I had never visited Gaynes Park before but as it is with waiting for buses I was there twice in 2012. My first visit was back in June 2012 for Kate and John’s wedding
Congratulations to Alison and Richard who tied the knot last September 2012 at Camden Town Hall.This was one of the few warm sunny days we had last year which made a nice change. I started at Alison’s home in Islington before hopping on a traditional London bus with the wedding party to the Camden Town Hall…….
