Sussex Wedding Photographer. A Reportage Style Capturing Candid Moments.

Surrey & Sussex Wedding Photographer

Hi! Welcome! I’m a Sussex Wedding Photographer and if you're looking for wedding and/or engagement photography and you're based in and around London or the Home Counties, including East & West Sussex of course, then I'd love to work with you!


I mainly provide wedding photography in Sussex, where I built my business, but I’m now based in London and cover Surrey, Kent, Essex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and all of the South of England.

I have been shooting for over 10 years and I really enjoy every wedding as every one is different. It's a chance for me to find unique, creative opportunities for beautiful photography and I like to tell the story of your wedding day through natural moments and a reportage style. I always aim to capture your wedding with a discreet approach, focusing (no pun intended) on capturing those important moments and candid shots.

About ME : LIFE as a sussex wedding photographer


My name is Phil, I'm a professional Sussex wedding photographer and I love taking photographs.

I’m a Sussex wedding photographer, covering neighbouring Surrey, Kent and London, and until recently I was based in Brighton. I now live as a wedding photographer in Crystal Palace, London, covering all wedding photographer needs across Sussex, Surrey & Kent. I love living in London, but I miss the countryside, and love shooting wedding photography across Sussex including Brighton, Worthing, Horsham, Chichester, Eastbourne, East Grinstead and Rye.


My philosophy of wedding photography is to capture not just how your wedding looks, but also I want you to look at my photographs and remember just how it felt to get married. I love those tender moments shared between couples throughout the day, and I draw inspiration from your wedding venue and decor to shoot some creative wedding photography. I shoot a mixture of a documentary, reportage style, catching authentic, candid moments and getting creative with flash lighting and some more adventurous shots! I want every image to feel unique to you and your wedding. Most of my wedding packages include a wedding album, that you can share with family and future generations, so they can enjoy the story of your wedding day and feel those happy moments through beautiful photographs.


Find out more about my photography by looking at the info page, visit the blog to see my recent work or have a look at my reviews. Why not check if I'm available and say hello using the contact page.


I always shoot a limited amount of weddings each year and dates are getting booked up quickly!


What will your wedding photography be like?

"Wow, just wow! We're so blown away, they're gorgeous and have shared the photos with all our friends and family. The long veil photo has turned out so so well, absolutely gorgeous! You've really captured the tender moments!


Phil was able to set everyone at ease on the day and has captured it perfectly, even the small moments and glances in between. We'd recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer that delivers (what our friends have called) "Fairy-tale movie stills". Thank you Phil!!!!"

Brides and grooms love my relaxed documentary style, with minimal posing (if any), and they book me as their wedding photographer because they want natural, candid moments whilst looking awesome on their wedding day. I love working with anyone and everyone in wedding photography, and working with new people is the best part of my job, creating unique, creative photographs that are individual to you.


Couples can feel a little nervous in front of the camera, but don't worry it's perfectly natural, and I have a few tips and tricks up my sleeve for feeling comfortable whilst being photographed, and you could even book a pre wedding engagement shoot to get some practice in!


I’ve shot at so many wedding venues, and love the challenge of working in new places too - have a look at some top wedding venues across East & West Sussex and the rest of the South East, or check out my testimonials or read through this info on my photography style to find out more.

"Phil is a brilliant wedding photographer. Right from when we first met for a meeting to discuss ideas and packages, Phil never pressured us into anything and never gave us the hard sell. He is very kind and patient and super professional as well as being a genius with his work. I was very comfortable being around Phil especially as I “hate” being in front of the camera but Phil was great at putting me at ease and was great on the day even at one point helping us coordinate the bridesmaids! From the photos we have seen already we are excited to see the rest - thank you for capturing the day so beautifully."

Weddings. Are. Beautiful. From the most humblest of celebrations to a great big bash, whatever style of wedding you're going for, I'm sure you've put a lot of effort into getting everything right for the wedding day. The groomsmen may have mismatching suits, or be in full top hat and tails, and the bridesmaids may be wearing stylish dresses or you may even have a bestwoman in a suit. Whoever you are and what ever style of wedding you're planning, I'd love to hear from you. I love the intricate details of weddings, from the wedding cakes that have a nude style, with minimal icing and fruits garnishing the tiers to wedding flowers made from paper origami. I understand that all of these little details are important to photograph on your big day and I love your individuality and how we can work together creatively.


I understand what’s important to capture; those little moments between old friends, the look that the bride gives the groom during the speech, the extended family member who bear hugs you as you haven't seen them in years and the toddler who gets into mischief. My approach to wedding photography is to tell the story of your day, from the bridal gown hanging up in the morning, to the guests throwing shapes on the dance floor. Everything, from start to finish, will be captured through the a creative and reportage wedding photography style to give you loads of precious moments you can relive from your wedding day.

Though I’m mainly a Sussex Wedding Photographer, I've been really lucky to travel all over the UK shooting weddings. What I love about Sussex is the South Downs National Park, the Seaside towns of Worthing, Brighton and Eastbourne and the countryside found in High Weald are all great locations for wedding photography. I also cover weddings regularly in Surrey, Hampshire, London and Kent. I also really enjoy travelling and occasionally photograph destination weddings in Europe.
