Your day as it happens...

Congratulations, you're getting married!
I’m Tom. A happy go lucky wedding photographer offering relaxed and natural wedding photography across
South Wales and the rest of the UK.
I’d describe my work as relaxed and spontaneous creative documentary photography.
On your wedding day I have one goal. To work behind the scenes to capture your amazing day as it unfolds.
I'm always on the lookout for that next genuine moment. Whether it's Mum and Dad shedding a tear during your vows, the bridesmaids sharing some early morning champagne, or your grandad getting groovy on the dancefloor!
These are my favourite kinds of images, the kind you can’t plan for but make the best memories.
Of course, there is always time for some family photos as well as natural couple photos later on in the day.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
Your wedding experience starts with a relaxed meeting (usually over coffee, tea, or a swift half!) where we can discuss your plans for the big day. It’s a great opportunity to get to know each other, and for me to answer any questions you might have.
A full day wedding package also comes with an engagement shoot included. This usually takes place around 2 months before your big day, at a location of your choice. If you were feeling nervous about being in front of the camera, I am to allay those fears with this session. It's relaxed, informal, and is all about you and your partner having fun with each other. The bigger the adventure the better!
On your wedding day I’ll arrive two hours before the ceremony to capture the bridal preparations and the small details like jewellery, your perfume, your flowers and of course your dress. I'll blend into the background as you get ready with your friends and family, capturing the genuine emotion and excitement of the morning.
Throughout the day I'll work in a documentary style, capturing all of the love, laughter, and happy tears you share with your guests. I will set aside a short time for family group photos if you like, before moving on to your bride and groom portraits. I'll be looking for great light, so if you're getting married in the summer it's always nice to do some portraits later on in the evening (as long as you're not too drunk of course!).
Hopefully you should feel more comfortable after you engagement session, and after getting to know me. I try not to be too intrusive but may offer the occasional direction and encouragement. In return you’ll receive a gallery of beautifully edited, genuinely heartfelt memories to cherish.
So way back in November I was afforded the pleasure of attending Becky & Eston's wedding which was held at the beautiful countryside location of Priston Mill in Bath. There are actually two buildings to choose from at this venue, with one being The Watermill and the other The Tythe Barn.
