Where do we even begin ...
Having spent weeks researching photographers we were beginning to think we wouldn't ever find the right fit for our wedding, but we were oh so wrong! We first met Peter at a small tea room in Bridge near our venue the summer before our wedding and it took us precisely 10mins after the meeting to contact him and confirm he was our man!
From that point on, we were in constant contact with Peter about our developing wedding plans and far from being 'just' our wedding photographer, he became our counselor and friend. He has a knack of knowing when to check in and make sure things are ok. Peter seemed genuinely as excited as were were about our big day and, in hindsight, being able to confide all our plans to someone and get the reassurance that things would be fabulous in the end was just invaluable (especially considering we didn't have a bridal party!). He made sure we stayed focused on the big picture and not the everyday 'wedmin' details. We've never heard of a photographer making mix-tapes for his clients and sending them date night packages to make sure they take some time out for eachother as a couple!
Peter's photography style completely suited our relaxed, informal farm fete style wedding. He is a self-confessed details man and captured all our personal touches perfectly. Peter blends in with wedding guests with such ease that you really do forget he is there sometimes! We didn't want big formal group shots and endless 'just one more' moments. We wanted a fun and beautiful record of our day - Peter certainly gave us that and went above and beyond to make sure that we would never forget what an awesome day we had.
We have looked through our wedding photos so many times and have sent a lot of them out to our guests as a momento of what will forever be one of the best days of our lives. So many of our guests wanted to know how we had found Peter to book him themselves and lots assumed he was an old friend from our Canterbury university days! We really do feel that having Peter be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made and wouldn't hesitate for a single second to recommend him to others.

Picking a photographer to capture your special day is no easy task and can certainly seem daunting, but when we came across Peter's work we just knew that he would be the right person to have by our side. Everyone will tell you when you start on your wedding day journey that the photographer will be more than the person just taking the photos, but what you don't realise is just how true and important that point is. From the moment we met Peter at a coffee shop in London we knew we were making the right choice. Peter's enthusiasm, passion for wedding photography and down to earth attitude shone through. Planning a wedding is fun, but is also incredibly stressful at times and we cannot thank Peter enough for being by our side. He provides so much support and advice along the road - really above and beyond what you expect from a photographer. Most importantly though on the big day itself Peter was superb! Peter knows how to fit in so well and make people feel at ease whilst he captures those really important moments, those where your friends and family are just themselves and enjoying the day. Our guests even commented after that there were times that they wondered if we had a photographer there at all!
As the Bride or Groom there are moments on your wedding day that you miss, mainly because it is so hard to take it all in, when we got our photos from Peter we were so happy to see that he had captured it all - I certainly didn't realise I was smiling quite so much on the day until the photos arrived :) We would not hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone, his eye for detail, colours and moments is excellent and his photos allow us to relive that best day of our lives. But most importantly Peter is a great to work with and it truly feels like we have gained a friend along the way.
Peter, thank you so much!

When choosing a photographer for our special day I don't think we could have found a more perfect match. From Peter's style in photography, to his impeccable taste and kindred spirit, we were elated when he agreed to fly all the way out to California to document our wedding. Before the day was even close, Peter was helpful in more ways than just a photographer. With advice and suggestions he helped make our dream of a day come true. Not to mention the many sweet surprises along the way to help us cope with the wedding planning stress that can tend to cloud the joy that is ahead. This was all just a small measure of what Peter had in store because the work he accomplished on the day of was unreal. Every capture was like he took it straight out of my head and made it come to life. Peter is an outstanding photographer and if you're lucky enough to have him on your special day you are in for a treat!

My wife and I absolutely cannot recommend Peter enough to anyone looking for a 5* photographer.
From first meeting him to receiving our finished products, dealing with Peter has probably been the most stress-free part of our entire wedding. It very quickly became apparent that Peter does not just do what he does for the money - he does it because it is genuinely his passion and he clearly cares about each and every couple that he provides a service to. The amount of time he spent with us or working on something behind the scenes for us is mindblowing, and the little gifts and messages of support we received from him really show his character and the way he cares about his clients.
The photographs we received are of a fantastic standard, my wife and I are absolutely thrilled with them.
I urge anyone on the fence about Peter to at least have a coffee with him and see what he is all about - I can guarantee that at the end of your wedding not only will you have a beautiful set of photographs, but also a new friend.

Peter was recommended to us by a friend who had attended a wedding Peter had captured. On first sight we liked his photography but as a couple who rarely have pictures taken together we just weren't sure what we really wanted. From the moment we made contact with Peter and met him for the first time we knew he would be perfect. Peter is just one of those people who you immediately feel comfortable with. He is so enthusiastic and wanted to know all about our wedding ideas and plans. We booked Peter straight away and are both so pleased we did. From this moment on Peter was in regular contact and surprised us with some unexpected parcels which were just so kind and thoughtful and well beyond what we would ever have expected. Our pre wedding photo shoot was such fun especially when Peter was juggling taking our photo whilst holding our two dogs who were doing their best to be in the picture with us! The wedding day was soon upon us and Peter was just amazing. Just after the ceremony the weather turned for the worse and Peter undeterred soon found an alternative location for our wedding portraits that was sheltered by the rain. we were so excited to receive our finished photos and we were not disappointed! Peter captured our day beautifully and anyone booking Peter will not be disappointed! Thank you Peter for such beautiful photographs that we will treasure in years to come x
Tish & Mitch
After seeing photos that Peter had taken for a friends wedding a few years ago, I knew that when our day came he would be the first photographer we would contact.
Throughout the whole planning process, Peter has gone above and beyond to make sure our experience was extra special. His enthusiasm and passion is infectious and it really shows in his work.
From the little gifts along the way to his cheery emails every now and then just checking in with us, he really made us feel like our wedding was important to him, and not just another job.
Our photos are more than perfect and we cannot thank you enough! We can relive our day over and over and each photo manages to take us right back there with all the emotions to go with it.
Thank you again, you have definitely been one of the best decisions we made! Without you, I am sure our journey would not have been quite as special.

We don't know where to start when telling you how brilliant Peter is!
Peter is more than a photographer, he was with us through our whole wedding planning journey with hints and tips, playlists, date nights and more, making the whole process even more special to us.
When behind the camera Peter made us feel completely at ease. Neither myself nor my husband are very confident when in front of the lens but Peter found what worked...for us it was making us laugh! From our pre wedding photo shoot he got some great natural shots which warmed us up and made us feel more confident for our big day.
It was great having Peter with us on the day itself, a friendly relaxed presence amidst all the initial nerves! Our friends and relatives have commented on how relaxed and happy everyone looks in our photos, which we feel pays great testament to Peters amazing work in capturing the essence of the day and those magical moments.
We couldn't have imagined having any other photographer with us on our wedding day, we know for sure that our amazing photos just wouldn't have been the same.
We're constantly looking through our photo album with huge smiles on our faces :)
Lydia & Kyle
We cannot recommend Peter highly enough. He is a fabulous artist, a complete professional, a great guy, and I can comfortably say, he is now our good friend, too! From the very first moment Peter helped us to feel relaxed and comfortable and the whole experience just kept getting better.
My new husband and I had no idea what to expect of our wedding photographer. We have heard of photographers who are fairly detached and only involved for the wedding itself and maybe a meeting or two beforehand. We would have probably been quite content with this to be honest, given that we didn’t know any better.
Peter absolutely blew our expectations out of the water. He is incredibly enthusiastic and showered my new husband and me with helpful communications throughout. Little tips and tricks that he has picked up along the way, which would subsequently help us to make our day so lovely and unique. He would drop off surprise bespoke packages for us which encouraged us to take time for ourselves in amongst the chaos of preparing for a wedding. He would send us the occasional email with a playlist of songs to listen to – again so that we could take time to switch off every now and again. Let me tell you, his emails always came at the right time!
Peter met with us regularly so that we could really forge a close relationship; all with the aim to help us feel relaxed with him, so as to create the very best photos of our big day. Peter put a great deal of effort into thinking about what would suit us, in terms of style and setting for our pictures and I feel that the results speak for themselves!
Having a pre-wedding shoot with Peter was such a nice touch. It became one of those defining moments of our engagement… we really feel that this was the point when we started to feel like our wedding was close. It was so exciting and fun!
I know I am rambling but we just want for others to know just how good this guy is.
My husband and I recently spent a couple of hours looking through all of the photographs that Peter took for us in our time working with him (pre wedding pics, and the wedding day pics), and they really are just so good! Employing Peter was easily one of the best decisions we made.
Claire & John
Well what can we say, from the moment I spoke to Peter I knew he was the photographer for us. By the end of our chat I could not get the smile off my face. I could envisage our whole wedding and the journey towards it; the excitement he demonstrated just through an informal enquiry was infectious.
Our pre-wedding photo shoot – Peter was up against it. A reluctant groom, child and pugs (well known for behaving and their agility for long walks!) on the hottest day of the year. The results of this were amazing and we were in awe of his work already. Excited for what the big day would bring.
Peter is a truly thoughtful chap, passionate not only about his art but also you as people (not just clients). This was evidence from the pick me up emails to check in offering help and advice and numerous other surprises along the way – shhhhhh don’t want to spoil it for you!
What can we say about the day – Peter (along with his amazing wife Lindsay as Videographer – check her out too!) were just amazing professionals, who ensured that we not only got the best photos from the day, but reminded us to enjoy every second of it (as it really does go by in a flash!). He has captured every essence of our day and through our pictures, we are very easily transported right back to the special moments we shared with loved ones.
Peter, I know that you had as much fun as we did and it is evident in your work. Keep being you and share your art with the world, as it really is breath taking.
Christine & Justin
From our very first meeting with Peter we knew he was the perfect person to photograph our wedding. Peter is not only one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, but really takes the time to understand exactly what you want from your wedding photography and is genuinely so excited and happy to be part of your day.
We have enjoyed every aspect of planning our wedding photography with Peter who has made everything so easy and enjoyable from all the gifts and tips we received in the lead up to our wedding, to the pre wedding shoot which really settled our nerves about having our pictures taken. But trust us with Peter behind the camera you don't need to be nervous at all!!
Every single one of Peters pictures that we received are beautiful and in the exact candid style that we wanted. We couldn't be happier, we can't recommend Peter enough!!!
Thank you so much :)
Christine and Justin
Helen & Adam
Peter made us feel like we'd known him for years, so quickly, that it was very easy for 2 non-photogenic people to relax and dare I say it, enjoy our pictures being taken! We wanted a natural set of shots, capturing moments as they happened rather than anything too staged with a main focus on fun - and Peter understood exactly want we wanted and delivered the jolliest, happiest set of wedding photos we could ask for!
Absolutely recommend Peter - not only was he a fantastic photographer who absolutely understood us, he was great to have around for the day!
Nikki & Sukh
When we first got our wedding pictures a few weeks after our wedding, we were literally lost for words. They were absolutely beautiful and most importantly, they really captured the day perfectly, as well as our personalities.
Some of the moments captured are memories and moments that we will forever cherish. Peter is in incredibly talented and it' s easy to see his passion for this. His little touches, attention to detail and thoughtful gestures really do set Peter apart from the rest.
We are so unbelievably grateful that we chose Peter to capture our special day and we cannot recommend him enough!
Becky & Mark
As soon as Mark and I were engaged, and we started to plan our wedding we knew that there would only be ONE photographer that we would choose to capture our special day - this was Peter! We had seen his work over the past few years and loved how he captured the energy and emotion in his photos.
We can both honestly say that Peter is one of the most kind natured and friendliest person that we have ever met. His passion for photography coupled with his energy and eagerness to help with any queries or requests, put our minds at ease throughout the wedding journey. He provided so much support and advice along the road which was really above and beyond what you would expect from a photographer.
We absolutely adored our date night gift, which helped us to take our mind off everything wedding related just for one night and just relax and watch a movie. The toffee popcorn was incredible!
On the wedding day itself Peter was absolutely amazing, ensuring that all elements of our day were captured. His rapor with not only the wedding party but also the guests was second to none.
We have since received our wedding photos and 'oh boy' they do not disappoint! Peter, we can not thank you enough for everything you have done for us! We would highly recommend you to anyone we know that is looking for a photographer :)
Lucy & Ian
I cannot recommend Peter enough! We're not lovers of having our photos taken, however Peter made us both feel very relaxed. We had several meetings to chat about the wedding, how the day would run and how and when we'd be able to capture our wedding shots. During those meetings we got to know Peter very well which made us even more relaxed and comfortable around him which made taking our photos a little easier for him!
We had a pre-wedding shoot, Peter had already scouted out some ideal places in the areas we were interested in as well as the places we'd already discussed. Same again with the wedding, we met up again to look around the church and our wedding venue (The Blue Pigeons in Worth) which helped us decide exactly where we wanted our photos taken and what sort of shots we wanted.
Throughout the actual day Peter was discreet however still catching lots of wonderful moments. Our day plays out wonderfully in the photos Peter took, we are very pleased and my family and friends were all very impressed with him, we will all certainly be recommending him to anybody looking for a photographer in the future.
Claire & Lee
From the beginning we knew Peter was one of a kind. He was so thoughtful, easy to get on with, professional and made everything so much fun! Once we saw our pre wedding shoot photos his pictures were amazing too, so we were really excited to have him at our wedding to capture our special day! Our wedding shots were even more amazing! Peter really goes that extra mile to make you feel special as his attention to detail is second to none! He also relaxes you so quickly you even forget what he is doing at times! I would highly recommend him to anyone who looking for a wedding/portrait photographer as he made our day unforgettable!
Rebecca & Natalie
What an awesome guy!
Peter comes highly recommended by us. We could not have wished for a more perfect photographer for our special day. When we found Peter via a friend, of a friend, of a friend on Facebook we didn't realise how lucky we were. He made us feel so comfortable and welcome every step leading up to our wedding. From our first meeting, to the engagement shoot, to the wedding day, Peter listened to all our wishes and views and worked hard to get it perfect for us.
It has been great getting to know him over the past year and it's funny how we miss discussing ideas. Then to top it all off we have some incredible photos to show from our amazing day.
Thank you for everything. We hope to stay in contact.
Alex & Ben
From the first meeting with Peter we knew we had the right photographer for our wedding. We'd loved his beautiful photos on the website, and knew his style was what we wanted. When we met Peter his friendly nature and excitement for capturing our wedding meant that there was no doubt we would book him.
Throughout the year Peter was on hand for location visits, questions, advice and our pre wedding shoot. His personal touches were never expected but greatly appreciated!
As a couple we are not used to photos, posing or being the centre of attention. It was a big worry for both of us, but we had nothing to fear as Peter made sure he got to know us, how to make us relax and most importantly take some great photos.
The results speak for themselves; our family and friends have been delighted with Peter's pictures. We count ourselves very lucky that we were able to secure him as he was starting out as a full time photographer. In the years to come he will be sought after by many!
Ben & Alex.
