Documentary wedding photography

I’m a Sussex wedding photographer providing documentary wedding photography for couples who want to capture the real story of their wedding. My natural, evocative images reflect the true atmosphere of the celebration. Authentic, honest, unobtrusive wedding photography, that doesn’t interfere with the day.

The way I photograph a wedding day is moulded by my training and experience as a photojournalist at The Times newspaper. I look to create a narrative – to capture memories, images that will tell the story of the day, for many years from now. That is what a wedding photographer is for. Their work, their value, isn’t really seen at the wedding itself – not like the flowers, the food or the music. The true value of good storytelling wedding photography really comes to light long after the last flower has faded. It has the power to bring back all the memories of the day. Images that should show someone who wasn’t there what it was like: the moments, the people, the emotions.

We were completely blown away with the pictures that Martin took of our wedding. It tells the story of the day absolutely perfectly and something we will always treasure.

Martin’s style of photography is unique and exactly what we were looking for. It’s like having a photographer and videographer rolled into one. His photo’s tell the story of your day and my husband and I loved looking through them to discover moments of the day we might have otherwise missed.



What exactly is reportage or documentary wedding photography? How do I photograph a wedding day? How do I work?

Hopefully, this website can give you a real sense of the way that I shoot and how my eye sees a wedding day. It’s the difference in the ‘eye’ that sets photographers apart. If you are interested in an informal and natural approach to unposed wedding photography, please contact me to check my availability.
