Wedding Photography for Northamptonshire & the Surrounding Counties

I am Stuart and have worked as a professional wedding, music and events photographer for more than a decade, Little did I realise when I first picked up a camera in 2005 that I would someday make it a living. This is something I never take for granted and count myself extremely luck to do what I love. 

I believe that the best things, the most beautiful things, are the simplest. Simplicity is everything. This is the rule I work by. 

What I offer is an unfussy yet beautiful account of your wedding day.

The moments, the details, the emotion, the whispered words and the laughter captured unobtrusively with humour and professionalism; photographs showing you and your guests at your relaxed best. 

From the first time we speak until you are happy with your album, I am at your service; whatever I can do to make you feel confident and happy so you don't have to worry on the biggest day of your life.

Availability & Locations

I only take on a select number of weddings each year. This allows me to me to keep the variety of commissions I undertake and ensures that when it comes to your wedding, you receive the most personal service I am able to provide.

Although I am based in Northamptonshire, I travel nationwide and weddings have taken me to Ireland as far as North Carolina in the United States. 
I am more than happy to travel - I lived for a long time in Norfolk and Suffolk and love the variety of East Anglia, from beautiful coastal settings to stunning countryside and busy towns and cities.

About Me 

This is my face. Luckily for you it won't be in any of your photos.

I have more than a decade's experience supplying live music and event photography to the industry's biggest agencies, with my work published in almost every newspaper in the UK and media outlets worldwide. I started offering weddings in 2010 and little did I realise how much I would love it. 

I don't do wedding fayres - most of my work is through recommendation and word of mouth with my emphasis on exceptional customer service; being as friendly as I can and on hand to help in any way that I can so that by the time your big day arrives, I will be Stu rather than 'The Photographer' - resulting in the most relaxed, natural photographs you could possibly hope for.


Testimonials

The album is perfect! Absolutely stunning! So happy!!
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us!! Our wedding was so perfect and now we have the snap shots to prove it. Thank you so much!
Mitch & Emily 

We have received the album in the post and are absolutely delighted with it. It is a fantastic memory of the day.
We are so pleased that we chose you to be our wedding photographer. It is over a year ago since we first contacted you and almost a year since you took those lovely snaps in Windsor - how time flies!!
The quality of the photos is excellent; you have managed to capture the "feel" of the day. You did a marvellous job on the day keeping us relaxed and blending into the background when required and throughout our wedding journey you were fantastically polite, helpful and cheerful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Once again, a BIG THANK YOU!!!!

Thanks for being our official wedding photographer. The photos look great...it was a wonderful day and you managed to capture it perfectly on camera.

Love the pictures, the ones down by the lake are so very fairy tale/Disneyesque. Chris's sister said I looked like a princess in them! And there are some really special ones of the bump. Pictures to treasure. Xx 
Chris & Carley

We're absolutely blown away; they're fantastic (not that we thought they wouldn't be!). Thanks again, you excelled yourself.
Alex & Charlotte

I'm so proud to have such a wonderful friend capture a magical day for us. You really captured what we wanted the wedding to be about. Thank you again for being such an amazing friend and photographer!!
Mat & Noura

The pictures looks amazing, really captured the day, thank you so much!  You and Rob were a welcome addition on the day!  Taking us both off for the photos for 20ish minutes was really lovely, and great for us to have a few quieter moments. 
Gavin & Rebecca

Stuart! It was an absolute pleasure to have you with us on the day! Many thanks for your support, patience and skills! The photos are a dream. x
Joe & Kirsty

Thank you for the wonderful job you did with our wedding day photos. We appreciate all the work that you put into the build up for our day and the  professionalism and adaptability you showed on the day due to the snow. The photos are amazing and we love the format in which you have produced them there are some really special pictures and we are so pleased with them.
Toby & Amber

We really love them......I literally blubbed my way through the slideshow (all happy tears of course)!! Thank you again to you and Rob for all your hard work on the day and since then. I cannot wait to put some albums together and get some printing done! 
Sean & Victoria 

OMG! AMAZING! 
Lee & Lorraine 

We are soooooooooo pleased with the photos. You did a wonderful job, better than we ever hoped for! Thank you so much! Everyone has absolutely loved what you and Ellie did on our wedding day and are just as excited to see more. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Your casual, laid back approach was fantastic and made the day so easy. We were so at ease and never really felt under the microscope, which was exactly what we wanted. You have captured so many candid moments of us and our guests and really captured the happiness and love of the day. We could not be any happier with our pictures! You have captured beautiful shots of everyone. One of the other things we are so impressed with was the speed at which you got our final product out to us. I have friends that have waited three or more months (some as many as six or seven months) to get their final product so I was blown away that in less than three weeks after the wedding you had the final products to both of us (including mine in Canada!). Thank you again Stu! We are sooooo pleased with the pictures! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job and being so completely comfortable and easy to work with! 
Donald & Brenna

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for our pictures. They are beautiful...The whole day was fab, and the pictures really reflect just how amazing the day was. Everyone has commented on them, and I have a few friends asking for your details.... Stu, they are truly amazing and we cant thank you enough. I'm never really one for pics- I always think 'bore off' when people get their albums out! But I am 100% displaying all of ours!!!  
Tony & Emma 

Thanks for all your effort Stu, they are amazing.

Peter & Anna

We honestly couldn't have asked for a more professional photographer on our wedding day. Not only that but we LOVE the photos too. On the day you were truly an expert, you were inconspicuous when you needed to be and I will never forget you taking my chewing gum before I walked down the aisle! 
Jav & Helen

Bloody hellfire! Just had a look at the pictures. One word. WOW! That is all. Seriously mate they are absolutely fantastic. We are so pleased you wouldn't believe. You guys have done such an excellent job.
Paul & Julie 

Thanks so much for the terrific job that you did on our wedding pictures. We were really impressed with the care you took through the whole process: meeting us beforehand to discuss what we wanted, working so thoroughly but unobtrusively on the day and then producing a great set of finished images that we could pass on to everyone. Plus your rates were really reasonable considering the quality. We'd recommend you to anyone... and will! 
Tom & Masha 

Thanks for the pics - mega! You're a legend. 
Ed & Lois 

The photos are incredible. I cannot believe how beautiful they are. Every single person that looks at the pictures is speechless. Looking at them really takes me back in time and there are some that remind me of moments which I had completely forgotten. I cannot stress what a wonderful job you did. We will recommend you to everyone. 
David & Salvia 

The pics are brilliant - thanks a million!! Needless to say, you'll be getting our sincerest recommendations to anyone we hear of who's looking for a photographer, if you fancy another job in Ireland sometime. 
Conor & Catherine 

WOW! Wonderful shots - you're exceptional!!! You exceeded our hopes and captured so many wonderful moments! Thank you for a stellar job 
Phil & Kirsty

The photo's are as expected. Brilliant!! Thank you so much. We didn't even know you were there most of the time which makes everything appear so natural and everybody spoke very highly of your approach. We had a truly fantastic day. Everything went to plan and we didn't have to worry. Mainly because we knew we had great people on the 'wedding day team'. 
Joel & Charlie

You've done an absolutely amazing job, and completely captured the feeling of the day. Brilliant. 
Joel & Sarah

Stuart was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day, he made everyone feel at ease, which really shows in the photos. He was on time, courteous and professional, managing to capture the day without being obtrusive. I would recommend him to anyone! Paul & Amie 

Thank you so much, the photos are better than we could ever have imagined. 
James & Charlotte

We can’t recommend Stuart highly enough! We were so chuffed with our wedding photographs – he managed to capture our whole day exactly as we saw it, and without us noticing he was there half the time!! From the oldest grandparent to the youngest child, he made everyone feel at ease and got some great pictures! He’s a good laugh too, thanks Stu.
