wedding photography with difference

North West Wedding Photographer including Art Deco Wedding Photography

I have been providing professional Lancaster wedding photography services for the last 15 years and Art Deco Wedding Photography. I have been fortunate enough to photograph clients’ special days in some of my favourite Lancashire venues. Photographers are in high demand most provide very similar services to us like natural unposed imagery. My work is regarded as having a unique look to it, quirky vision, an unusual twist. I have seen many of brides with my images hanging on the wall as timeless art pieces. I was judged International Runner Up in Wedding Avant Garde SWPP 2016 & 2018 (see both images)
I apply where necessary my experience using photoshop, photoshop actions, skin softeners, light modifiers and more importantly lens selections during the exposure.

We do seem to get our fair share of work at the midland hotel wedding photography Morecambe probably because of the fact Martin was born in Morecambe and has an affinity for the area as well as the venue.


I was one of the first Lancaster wedding photographers when I began in 2002, now there are now countless ‘start -ups’ in the field. You would need to be sure they have the necessary skills to provide comprehensive photographic skills to meet your requirements – should you decide to hire one of these.


Midland hotel Wedding Photographer – Recommended UK

The Midland Hotel in Morecambe wedding photographer by the parent company that owns it: the English lakes hotel group. I really enjoy weddings at Midland hotel Morecambe along with Leighton hall wedding photography something about the space around the venues which appeal to me.


Art Deco Wedding Photography

Award winning photographs

I have won countless SWPP awards which reflect my professionalism as a Fine art photographer; these achievements highlight our unique style.

My approach is very different to the vast majority of wedding photographers. I really do try hard to provide you with images that look a bit different, unusual and quirky! I have been nominated three times as UK Avant-Garde Photographer of the Year with the SWPP. Some of my inspirations for my UK photography awards have come from painters like Magritte, Dali & Bacon. I am aiming one year to win the title – hopefully!

I am always looking for quirky subjects to photograph, something a bit unusual at every big day I attend. To help make this happen I often visit the venue at least once before the day to research all the elements – such as the buildings lighting, any art work displayed and interior designs of the hotel. Ultimately I try not to have you just looking at the camera holding hands – which of course what most photographers do.
I use up to date camera and lighting technology, not just relying on ‘available light’ utilising other skill sets to add variation: such as electronic flash in soft boxes & lighting stands. This may involve spending some time with just the bride & groom, perhaps at a location just away from the venue itself.

As an example – architectural venues, such as Manchester Town Hall, have wonderful designs from the neo-gothic era; using this as my photographic backdrop adds impact and makes for brilliant imagery. I have also covered vintage themed, 1920 and humanistic marriage occasions.

Lake District Wedding Photography

We also a full list of lake district wedding venues we have visited both small – like The Samling, The Merewood, and Cragwood hotels and larger venues like The Low Wood Bay and The Langdale Chase hotels in and around Windermere, south lakes. The proximity to Lake Windermere itself makes these venues appealing to brides getting married, mainly for the easy access to the lakeside to arrange posed images and perhaps a boat ride. Lakes photography is very popular all year round for couples in love, so please contact me regarding your lake district celebration. Cumbria is a beautiful part of the English countryside to have as the backdrop to your big day, with my vast experience as a district photographer I can meet you to discuss my bespoke packages.
