I was commissioned by ABP (Associated British Ports) in Teignmouth, Devon, to capture some images that showed the working life of the dock. After passing through security, receiving a safety briefing and getting kitted out with a hard hat, glasses, gloves, boots and a hi vis jacket (looked the part), I went onto the dock.

I was amongst the machines, cranes and huge ships. I managed to capture some awesome images to represent the working life on the dock and even managed to shoot some aerial shots.


All in a days work for this Devon Photographer! I love shooting weddings and family photo shoots but commerical photography can be very exciting.

Here's a little peak at two of my October weddings. A very extravagant Greek, Cypriot wedding right here in Torbay, Devon! It was an action packed day and as a Devon wedding photographer, a first for me. I throughly enjoyed all of the traditions and the real sense of 'family'. It was an incredible experience and I felt honoured to have been able to photograph it.

Mr & Mrs Plummer were so happy, smiley and fun to photograph! I captured so much giggling! Here are some of my favourite photos from their castle wedding in Devon. They were married at the Haldon Belvedere, Exeter, Devon. Followed by a spectacular wedding reception at Dainton Park Golf Club, Dainton, Newton Abbot.

Sorry I've been some what quiet lately. The wedding season has been a busy one. I took a week off with my family to holiday in Turkey. Of course I took my camera with me to capture this stunning coastline. Turkey is dear to my heart as it's where my wife and I honeymooned, 7 years ago., in Marmaris


This time we went as a family and had the most incredible week together in Icmeler. Everyone deserves time out to recharge the batteries. Here's some photos I took during our trip. One fully, recharged Devon Wedding Photographer! Ready for the winter wedding season here in Devon and Cornwall.

Well I must say I'm enjoying the cooler weather, the fresh Autumn air and the changing leaves. We've been blessed with some beautiful, sunny days!


As a Devon based wedding photographer, I feel really fortunate to have been part of so many lush country weddings. I wanted to share with you a couple of photos from my recent Autumn weddings in Devon.


I have been particularly busy this season which is wonderful! I have 2 weddings yet to edit and lots of wedding photos to share with you.


Here are some of my favourites from recent weddings.



The sun is lower in the sky this time of year and it makes for some beautiful images. Taken at The Edgemoor Hotel in Devon. What a beautiful wedding dress!



Cool, sunny Autumn morning at The Edgemoor Hotel in Devon. Highly recommended wedding venue!



Changing colours yet still so vibrant and green. Autumn is here at The Edgemoor Hotel. This Devon Bride and Groom arrived in style.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending The Haldon Belvedere Wedding Fair. This beautiful Devon castle wedding venue dates back to 1788. It sits proudly on top of a hill in Haldon Forest, above Exeter. Giving picture perfect, panaromic views of the Devon countryside. It is a real gem and one of my absolute favourite Devon wedding venues!


So this is where I was fortunate enough to spend my Sunday afternoon. I met some wonderful brides and grooms to be, along with many very impressive Devon wedding suppliers. To name but a few...
