Beautiful, natural wedding photography with a meticulous but unobtrusive approach

People have always been the subject that I’ve most enjoyed photographing. After cutting my teeth on my dad’s Pentax ME Super in my teens, I managed to persuade him to lend it to me for my first round the world trip, most of which I spent taking portraits in remote villages.

From there, I went on to work on assignment for various press agencies, pursued a number of personal photo-journalism projects (mainly exploring issues of identity) and then, a few years ago, photographed my first wedding when a friend asked me to stand in for a photographer who’d let them down at the last minute. When I subsequently sat down with them to show them the photos and witnessed their immense joy at reliving the day, I realised that I’d stumbled upon an incredibly rewarding side of photography that I hadn’t previously considered.

Since then, I’ve become ever more passionate about capturing with feeling, intimacy and discretion, what for many people will be the most significant day of their lives. My approach to this is relaxed, informal and unobtrusive – but diligent.

I will, of course, document all the key ‘staged’ moments – the walk down the aisle, the vows, the speeches etc.  But I tend to place equal emphasis on those many un-staged moments – all the ‘bits in-between’ which can easily be overlooked, but which collectively I think add so much texture, personality and uniqueness to the record of your special day. Ultimately, my goal is to comprehensively capture all of the joy, the emotion, the laughter, the nerves and the embarrassing dancing, giving you a truly beautiful record that enables you to savour and relive the many precious moments for years to come.
If that sounds like the kind of thing you’re after, please take a look at my website where you’ll see more examples of my recent work. And if you like what you see, get in touch for a chat – I’d love to hear from you.

How would you describe your style?

Natural. Discreet. Intimate. Unobtrusive.

There will be no forced poses (unless of course you want them!) or demands to endlessly smile. You can rest assured that I will be thorough, but as a general rule the less you notice me the better.

What do you love about weddings?

Weddings are uniquely special occasions. Not only are you making a commitment that you make to no other person in your life; you are also doing so in front of everyone who is important to you.

It's a joy and a privilege to help document this in a way that's commensurate with the trust you place in me as your photographer. It's also usually a huge amount of fun!

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Take your time, think about the kind of approach you are looking for from a photographer (e.g. formal / humorous / traditional / modern etc) and, most importantly - go with your gut.

I would also insist on talking to any photographer you are seriously considering to ensure that, as well as being able to take beautiful photographs, he/she will work in a way that fits with your overall vision/vibe for the day.

Your Travel policy?

Whilst I’m based in the South West (Devon-Cornwall border), I am happy to travel further afield if you so require - I’ve previously gone as far as Washington DC. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss something more exotic!

Beyond delighted

London wedding - happy customers :)

Clem photographed our London wedding, covering our town hall registry ceremony and large venue party. He was unobtrusive but great company and a delight to work with. We love our wedding photos - they really capture the spirit of our day

Clem's the man for the job!

Finding the right photographer is always a challenge and we had no idea where to start. We actually found Clem through his Facebook page and were incredibly impressed by his photos - there was just something about them that made me smile. When the big day came Clem was so professional. He didn't miss any opportunities to take the most beautiful photos - I will treasure them forever. If you want to look back at your day and smile then Clem is the man for the job. He is also a wonderful person and I could not recommend him enough. You will not be disappointed!

Superb photographer!

We had initially hired Clem for our wedding in November 2020. When COVID put an end to that, Clem was so reassuring and committed to whatever date we could find the following year. We ended up doing a slightly pared back version of our original plans in August 2021 and it was so worth the wait! Clem's photographs from that day exceeded all our expectations - they are just stunning. Clem - it was also an absolute pleasure to have you with us. You somehow managed to combine being incredibly professional with being a great addition to the party! Thanks so much once again
