Have a look at these beautiful wedding photos I took at Deer Park Hall!
21 October 2014
He's a beautiful wedding photo I took on a sunny day last month at one of my favourite wedding venues - Deer Park Hall!
Here's to you, beautiful people!
13 October 2014
So recently I was accused of only photographing models for the wedding photographs I display on my website.
The actual comment went something like this:
"I bet none of the people on your website are real, they're probably all models from one of those days you can go on and build a portfolio"
After the initial shock I came to realise this worked as a compliment in my favour, both of my photography and of all the lovely and wonderful people I photograph. Because everyone's beautiful.
Thank you all for making my work so effortless.
P.s. None of the people on my website are models, they are all in fact real people from real weddings - Although you will be forgiven for thinking otherwise!
New portfolio is on it's way!
10 October 2014
I'm currently working on choosing some new images from this years weddings to go into my new portfolio - Which sounds like a lovely job, looking at all of my favourite images... but I have some 44,000 images to scroll through and narrow it down to 40. This calls for a lot of coffee and a lot of cake!
05 October 2014
Another beautiful wedding photo from last month - Not much more to say other than that!
04 October 2014
I received a lovely email from a client this morning, expressing how pleased they are with their weddings photos which gives me the perfect opportunity to share a couple of them with you! Amanda and Stuart's wedding and reception was held at the Ramada Birmingham Hotel
in Solihull with these pictures being taken at Malvern and Brueton Park, right across the street. I adore the first picture, with the young girl watching what's going on.
Why I shoot
28 September 2014
I'm back in the office editing some more gorgeous wedding photos when I received this email from a client whose wedding I shot about 3 weeks ago:
"We just wanted to both say to you thank you so much for the day! The whole day was brilliant, everything went smoothly, and a lot of that was down to you. You were so relaxed and got everything done, and of course without your help with my dress in the morning I may have been a bit more than 15 mins late to the ceremony!
We have had a lot of friends and family comment on how great you were, and even a few potential bookings in the future!"
Who knew I could do up wedding dresses?!
22 September 2014
Who'd have thought that you could get images containing nothing but greenery (and a bride and groom) at an inner-city wedding?! That's exactly what we did here - The venue for this wedding was the Ramada Hotel Solihull
and this beautiful photo was taken in Malvern and Brueton Park, just across from the hotel.
Stay tuned - Many more beautiful wedding photos to come!
18 September 2014
Amazing couple, a Morgan sports car which is as beautiful as the Malvern hills which you can see in the background and an amazing sky - What more could you ask for in a wedding photo?!
A quick update
15 September 2014
This weekend I shot two weddings - The first at St Peters Church, Kinver
followed by a reception at Deer Park Hall
in Worcestershire. The second wedding took place at Crown and Sandys
in Ombersley, Worcestershire. All in all, over the two days I took over 6,500 photos so I have some editing to do this week!
09 September 2014
Sticking with the theme of black and white for the time being, here's an image I captured at a recent wedding of the bride entering the church with her father. The church in question is Wilden Church in Stourport On Severn, Worcestershire.
04 September 2014
A Worcestershire Wedding photo!
02 September 2014
I've shared quite a few images from a wedding I did last month showing only the bride - So, as promised, here is a wedding photo featuring her new husband Ben!
This is the image I used for the front of the couple's DVD case and I love it in black and white. Again, the venue is the beautiful Holt Castle
Check out this beautiful bride
30 August 2014
As I mentioned in my last post, Zhenya - a recent bride of mine - isn't a professional model, although she really could be! Have a look at these beautiful wedding photos I captured at Holt Castle
27 August 2014
Earlier this month I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Zhenya (pictured below) and Ben (soon to appear in upcoming photos!)
Their Worcestershire wedding took place at Wilden Chuch, Stourport, with a reception at the beautiful Holt Castle
This is one of my favourite images from the wedding, and please note - Zhenya is not a model!

18 August 2014
Hello again everyone! I've had a few days away on holiday and now I'm back in the office working on wedding photos again. I haven't shared much of my recent work lately so here's one from a July wedding, showing the groom and best man just before the ceremony! This was taken at Hampton Manor
07 August 2014
I have been very busy of late editing wedding photos, but thought I'd take a few moments out to share this one with you.
Check back soon because many more beautiful wedding photos are coming!
16 July 2014
I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph an Indian wedding a couple of weeks ago at the Hilton Bromsgrove
- I've just started editing the pictures and check out some of the colours!
03 July 2014
I was lucky enough to have several things that made this image really work - An amazing, moody sky, a great couple, a Morgan sports car and the Malvern Hills in which it was built.
Tracy and Robin had their wedding ceremony at Malvern Registry Office, and we had stopped in Welland to get these pictures on the way to their wedding reception in Upton.
02 July 2014
Here's one from a wedding last weekend, taken at Malvern Register Office in Worcestershire!
27 June 2014
As I prepare for tomorrow's wedding, I thought I'd share an image from a wedding I shot a couple of weeks ago.
New testimonial received!
25 June 2014
I just received this beautiful testimonial from a client who's wedding was in May:
"Lee takes superb, natural photos. He is extremely professional, hard-working and courteous. It was clear from his portfolio that he was more experienced than other local photographers and was the obvious choice for us to ask to record memories from the most special day of our lives.
Leading up to our wedding and on the day itself, Lee couldn’t have been more helpful or enthusiastic. He worked quickly and unobtrusively, and our guests really liked him.
We couldn’t be happier with the photos we received and would highly recommend him as a wedding photographer"
20 June 2014
I'm off photographing a wedding today (Friday) as well as one tomorrow and an event on Sunday so it's all go at the moment but fear not, I shall try my best to keep the blog up to date with recent wedding photos. Check out this beauty of one of May's brides arriving wither her father!
Engagement shoot photo!
10 June 2014
I've been editing for what seems like forever but I've finally finished! So, to take a very quick break from wedding photos, here's one from an engagement shoot I did recently in Birmingham's Hotel LaTour
26 May 2014
A beautiful weekend of weddings!
21 May 2014
I shot two weddings this weekend and was blessed with amazing weather for both. I had a non-wedding related event to shoot on Sunday so ended up taking 9,000 photos in three days!
We really made the most of an incredible sunset at Deer Park Hall
on Saturday and came home with this gorgeous photo!
First wedding photo ever from The Moat House!
19 May 2014
I shot two weddings this weekend and I have about 5000 photos to edit, but to give you a glimpse at how beautiful the photos are going to be, check out this gorgeous photo from Friday! It was The Moat House's
first ever wedding and it ran flawlessly. I really hope to shoot there again soon!
14 May 2014
I have been so busy the last few days it's been impossible to get any new images online, until now that is! (Yes, it's 02:24am but there's no time like the present!)
To make up for my absence I'm showing you two photos today!
I am shooting weddings on Friday and Saturday of this week so stay tuned for more beautiful wedding photos coming soon!
03 May 2014
Always a magical moment - The first time the bride and groom see each other on their wedding day!
01 May 2014
I took enough beautiful wedding photos last weekend at Deer Park Hall to keep them coming for months! I'm cracking on with the editing so watch this space people!
Another beautiful wedding photo from this weekend's Worcestershire wedding!
29 April 2014
Great weather, beautiful venue and an amazing couple - what more could you ask for?
28 April 2014
As I was stood at the front of the ceremony room, aside the registrars, I saw the bride arriving outside and managed to run off a few shots before the made her grand entrance. I think it looks stunning as a black and white!
27 April 2014
I had a great time shooting a wedding at the amazing Deer Park Hall
yesterday. I've just downloaded the images and will start editing them tomorrow - but for now here's a little taster of what's to come.
Congratulations Kirsten and Oliver!
Are you planning a wedding in Warwickshire?
24 April 2014
Earlier today I had the pleasure and privilege of being shown around the Moat House in Dorsington
, which is sure to be one of Warwickshire's newest wedding venues.
How new I hear you ask? It turns out the wedding I'm photographing there on the 16th May will be their very first wedding, so stay tuned for some exclusive photos!
If you are looking at having your wedding reception in the gorgeous Warwickshire countryside, make sure you have a look at the Moat House. It's one of the most beautiful places I've been and it appears to have been built with beautiful wedding photos in mind (Even if the main house predates photography by 700 years!)
Anyway that's enough from me, I'm shooting a wedding this Saturday at another one of my favourite venues, this time a little closer to home - Deer Park Hall in Worcestershire.

I'm getting stuck into the editing of Elly and Matt's wedding photos from Sunday and they all look fantastic! They're going to need to set aside a lot of time to look through them all!
Here's a few details from the day
Wedding photo from yesterday
14 April 2014
Hello everyone! I had an amazing time at yesterday's wedding at Wethele Manor
in Warwickshire. The sun was shining and it was lovely and warm too which is always a big help!
I've just started editing the photos and here's a real beauty! Congratulations Elly and Matt!
10 April 2014
...Some wedding pictures you'll be pleased to hear! I'm shooting my first wedding of the proper wedding season this coming Sunday and I'll be sure to post many beautiful wedding photos soon after!

New section coming soon
30 March 2014
Hello again everyone!
I've been busy the last few weeks organising meetings for weddings coming up this year and so haven't updated the website in that time. I am however, working on content for a new section - I've compiled a list of hints and tips that you can use when planning your wedding with photos in mind. It's almost finished and will be online this week so watch this space!
Wedding photo! Sort of...
25 March 2014
It's a rainy day in the office for me, organising meetings with clients and venues for weddings I have this year and next. I'm looking forward to the first wedding of the proper season in a few weeks time, and have been looking over some old pictures - Here's one I love from last spring but haven't yet shared!
11 March 2014
I met a lovely couple yesterday to discuss the photography of their wedding at the wonderful Curradine Barns
in Worcestershire, so thought I'd share one of my favourite photos from the last time I was there!
Are you getting married this year?

We're fully iPad compatible!
14 February 2014
It's taken a solid 20 hours to achieve, but every part of the site is now accessible via iPhone and iPad. To make the website as smooth as possible for PC users, it utilises a large amount of Adobe Flash - which sadly doesn't work with iPads. To get around this, I have built special iPad friendly galleries for both the featured weddings and the portfolio which are accessible through well placed links. So, if you're reading this on an iPad (and even if you're not) have a look at the new wedding galleries by clicking here
It's that time of year again
14 February 2014
Happy valentines day everyone!
Good news for iPad/iPhone users!
10 February 2014
There are a few aspects of my website that don't currently work with Adobe Flash - Namely the portfolio and featured weddings, but the good news is I'm working on a solution.
To start with, I have added a strictly non-flash portfolio page which can be found here
and three new non-flash featured wedding galleries - To view them click here
for the wedding Liz and Andy, here
for the wedding of Fiona and James and here
for the wedding of Hetal and Phill!

Looking back at some old photos and here's another beauty from RBS Six Nations England squad member Matt Mullan's wedding!
Wedding photo / Six Nations
08 February 2014
I am a big rugby fan, and watching the France Vs. England game during the first weekend of RBS Six Nations 2014, I saw a familiar face on the England bench - Matt Mullan, not because he started his career playing for Worcester, but because I photographed his wedding a few years ago!

Some more recent wedding photos
15 January 2014
Whilst I'm organising meetings for wedding in both 2014 and 2015 I thought I'd share a couple of wedding photos I shot recently that I love. With winter weddings there's never a guarantee that the weather will cooperate with you and unfortunately we had blustery winds and light showers through out the day, but just as we had finished taking pictures outside we had a few rays of golden light burst through the clouds. Sadly the gorgeous light didn't last anywhere near long enough to get any photos other than the one I quickly grabbed - which can be seen below!
08 January 2014
Here's a recent wedding photo taken on December 27th showing the bride arriving at the registry office on a crisp winter's day. I'm just heading out to deliver this set of photos, but come back soon - there are many more awesome wedding photos to come!
Are you getting married this year?
01 January 2014
Across the country there will be thousands of people waking up to the thought "It's 2014... I'm getting married this year!"
If you're lucky enough to be getting married in 2014 and need a wedding photographer in the Worcestershire area or anywhere else in the UK - fear not, as I still have dates available.
So if you're planning a wedding and need a wedding photographer, please don't hesitate to get in touch by filling out the contact form by clicking here

You made everyone feel very comfortable and helped to make our enjoyable day very memorable. The photographs are stunning and really show the wonderful story of our day.
