Cornwall Wedding Photography

Choosing the best wedding photographer is essential for your day. Yes, you need to love their style of photography, whether there a documentary photographer, reportage, candid or traditional photographers, even though you enjoy their work. In my view, I think it is more important that you get on with them and feel comfortable being around them and having your wedding photograph taken.

They will be shadowing you all day so you will have a bond with them and make sure you put your trust in them. Your photographer should make you feel comfortable, so you're able to be natural and show genuine emotion in front of the camera.

Elopement Photographer Cornwall

My view is to approach to elopement wedding photography with a reportage, candid or documentary style of photography shooting of images. Capturing wedding photography with a relaxed unscripted approach, letting the day unfold naturally, capturing moments of storytelling of love and happiness of couples on their special wedding day. Telling your wedding day story, documenting the emotions, your proud parents, the first look, the fun and love that you share with family and friends.

I'm working with couples and their guests in a relaxed, natural way, letting the day unfold organically. Naturally, you want your wedding day to run as smoothly as possible, and you want a day to remember for your guests, your family and your loving partner. Once the day has ended, you will have your memories and your wedding images to look back on each year.

My father once said to me if you love your work, you will never have to work a day in your life. Photographing weddings for couples, capturing those special moments is a photographers dream.

Happy Couple Testimonials

The photos taken on our wedding day were absolutely brilliant. We didn’t even know they were being taken so everyone looks so naturally happy. It really says it all when a photographer can capture just the right shot at the right moment and make everyone involved look good! We now have a wonderful reminder of our day and I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again for family events in the future! Thank you so much x


Amazing photographer. Very relaxed and put my wife and I at complete ease. Captures images that aren’t nessarily what you would expect which gives another view that you may not normally see. Such natural shots. Thank you so much Pete!

I used Pete to undertake some supportive photography for my website, he has a great eye for the detail, was very easy to deal with and able to frame some beautiful shots.

Documentary Approach to Weddings

Your getting married and need a Devon wedding photographer. I'm the one, a reportage, candid or documentary approach as a wedding photographer. Capturing the moments of couples, the bridal party, waiting for the bride to appear is just priceless, the smiles, emotions that they express on seeing the bride, preparing to walk down the aisle, is just brilliant. I feel very privileged in being able to capture these moments as they unfold.

Documenting a wedding couple this way, to me gives a modern feel, but with a more laid-back style. The photographer has to blend in with the guests, and the photography style needs to reflect this. It is capturing close-ups, genuine emotions firsthand, storytelling at its best, documenting the day how it was.

You have spent months planning your big day and probably many a year dreaming of your wedding day. Naturally, you want your wedding day to run as smoothly as possible, and you want a day to remember for your guests, your family and your loving partner. Once the day has ended, you will have your memories and your wedding images.

When I photograph weddings, I give 100% effort, whether a part-day or a full day's photography booking. Just keep me fed and watered, and I will be ready to photograph the dad dancing at the end of the evening.

Weddings are a combination of portraits, documentary, landscape, street and fashion photography all rolled into one. Having the artistic freedom to shoot a couple's special day, where they trust you implicitly is what gets me up in the morning. Having a good working relationship with the happy couple and wedding party, banter with the groom's men, can end up with making new friends. These are the best recommendations for referrals.

A little bit about my approach

A bit of me, I'm a 6 foot something bearded chap with a passion for photography, surfing and ultra-running. My father was an avid photographer, so from a young age, I always had a camera to hand.
My passion for photography has taken me to many beautiful locations throughout Europe, honing my photography skills through film and digital formats in the city of London.

Street photography and Wildlife photography has given me the skills to read a situation and to be able to react quickly as the scene unfolds to capture the images. Shooting surf, landscapes and portraiture photography has helped me get the best from subjects while making the best use of natural light.

Second Photographers

My view to weddings is to have had two photographers at your wedding to capture images which is ideal if you have a large number of guests and or if the bride and Groom are getting ready for the wedding in different locations. The photographer is just storytelling, so photographs of both parties getting prepared are part of the day's story.

Both photographers need to know how each other work, generally you have the lead photographer who will be running the main show taking the main shots of the day. The approach of the second shooter would typically shoot in a non-intrusive style, the second photographer should be able to capture images while being able to blend into the wedding party, but still capturing the wedding day couple story but from a different angle. If you need a second wedding photographer, Cornwall or devon get in touch.

Engagement Photo Shoot

If you're looking for an engagement shoot or a pre-wedding photoshoot in Cornwall, Devon, South West, London up to the Cotswolds, you are in the right place.

Shoot Location

Where did you make your proposal, where did you first meet each other? Did you see each other on a night out?

Would you like to capture it in an urban industrial setting to give it an edgy look? Or would you prefer to be in beautiful countryside with trees and flowers? Perhaps a metropolitan area with robust architecture and graffiti. Industrial location with tin mines or a fancy spa hotel, the choice is yours, let's be creative, edgy and modern and see what you feel on the day.

Destination Photography Cornwall

Being a destination wedding photographer is just perfect for me. A traveller at heart, the desire to experience different cultures and countries is something I love and has always intrigued me; it must be the Viking blood within me.

I've lived in many different locations in Europe, London, Cotswolds, Spain, France travelling around, photographing along the way. Combining my love of weddings with travel, to me is the perfect combination of destination wedding photography from my base in Cornwall.
