Hi, my name is Ben. I'm a Hampshire wedding photographer based in the sunny south coast of the UK. I’ve been photographing weddings in Hampshire, as a full-time photographer, since 2011. Over 12 years in the game as a professional!
My wedding photography style has been described as unobtrusive, candid, creative and authentic. My approach is all about capturing real moments and emotions, in a calm and relaxed manor, which document your wedding day; a story-telling style with a twist of creativity thrown in. A winning combination for couples who don't like to pose (or the idea of it).
While my roots are in Hampshire, I photograph weddings all across the central south. The usual suspects are Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Sussex, and Surrey. I'm also available for destination weddings – I’ve photographed weddings in France, Spain, Italy, Norway and even Vietnam!
"Ben, everyone has commented on how brilliant the photos were, how delightful you were and how lucky we were to have chosen you as our photographer, and we couldn’t agree more. We had a completely brilliant day, and your record of it is not only beautiful, but fun and utterly authentic. With apologies for sounding a bit corny, your photographs epitomise the phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.’ You captured our and our guests’ personalities and you memorialised the emotions of the day, which is indescribably precious, as we will be able to look at the photographs and be taken back to the magic of that day for years to come."See the pictures
"Ben, the photos are EPIC!! We are blown away by the pictures and have really enjoyed looking at these whilst on honeymoon and have now shown both parents as well which has been really nice. The photos are absolutely amazing and have just made us want to repeat the day over and over! THANK YOU."See the pictures
"From the first moment we met Ben we instantly liked him and knew we wanted him to be our photographer for our big day. Quick to respond to emails throughout the whole time. On the day he made sure we had some time between photographs to enjoy our canapés and mingle with our guests. We absolutely love the photos and can’t stop looking at them and showing them to our guests. Photos came less than two weeks after the wedding which was so nice to see it all so close to the wedding. Would highly recommend Ben, he made the day feel so relaxed (even went to source a bottle of fizz for the morning). Even our guests commented on how nice and friendly he was. Thank you so much!"See the Photos
"We couldn't have asked for anyone more perfect than Ben to take photographs of our wedding day. His calm personality helped to create a relaxed feel to having photographs taken (especially when some of us feel a bit awkward posing for a photo). There was no 'click, click, click' sounds from his camera, in the nicest possible way, we hardly knew he was snapping away in the background. It was great him being there from pretty much the start to the finish of the day so every moment was captured. We love all of the photos he took and couldn't recommend him more highly. Such a lovely guy too."See The Photos
“We just love all the photos Ben!! They look amazing!!! We can’t stop looking at them! You really captured our day amazingly without being intrusive and nothing is too staged which we love as you can really relive the day through the photos. A MASSIVE thank you again!”
"Thank you so much! They are absolutely amazing, we are so pleased with them! Thank you again for helping us, our families and friends to relax, and feel comfortable on such a special day. We have had so many comments from ours guests as to how great you were!"
"Ben, the photos are AMAZING! We have spent the entire day looking at them! I cried when we first looked at them! It has reminded us of so many things. You were so discreet and always there when we needed you."
"Thank you so much! We’re so happy with the pictures! We were never expecting them so quickly but had a first look through last night (the last night of our honeymoon) which was really lovely. Loads of great shots in there, both on the formal/artistic side and on the candid/storytelling side too. You’ve done a brilliant job. Thank you again - it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and work with you."
"The photos do truly tell the story of the day capturing so many special moments from start to finish. You have captured peoples emotions so well and the feel of the day, relaxed, happy and a lot of love."
In September this year, Mel & Olly, plus 70 of their family and friends (P&O’s biggest ever wedding), celebrated their wedding on an eight day cruise to the Norwegian fjords aboard P&O MS Iona. The boat sailed from Southampton in Hampshire. The first sea-day was their wedding celebration. They booked me to capture their wedding…
These words from Jo & Brendan’s recent wedding really mean a lot: “Thank you SO much for the photos – we’re honestly blown away and so happy with them! You were such an incredible help on the day ensuring everything went smoothly and even whipping people into shape when needed! (In the nicest way –…
I’ve added a drone to my photography kit-bag for weddings this 2023 season. It’ll allow me to capture photographs at weddings from vantage points normally completely out of my reach. It particularly comes into its own when photography the venues and buildings used throughout the day; beautifully setting the scene of the day’s story. The…
This year, thanks to Louise & Andy, I was nominated into the Wedding Industry Awards. I’ve been nominated on two prior occasions, but for the first time ever I pursued the entry. I’m so pleased I did as I got voted through as a 2023 regional finalist – thanks again to all the couples who…
