Shropshire Wedding Photographer




I am Phil, and I am an award-winning wedding photographer who happens to love capturing weddings in a storytelling, effortless, manner but with an added slice of creativity too. If that floats your “Shropshire boat” then you’ve come to the right place.

A fantastic achievement to be recognised among the Master’s Photographers in 2022. To add to being voted Best Wedding Photographer in 2018 at the English Wedding Awards and also top 100 in This Is Reportage. World class photography right here in Shropshire
awards for english weddings.

I am a born and bred proud Salopian and I live with my Wife and our three doggies in Ellesmere, close to the county town of Shrewsbury. It is a gorgeous part of the world and being Shropshire based I know the local venues really well. Having built up good solid working relationships over the last 15 or so years, I like to pass on those little “nuggets” of wisdom whenever I can.

I have worked at most of the amazing venues around Shropshire and you will often find myself being recommended by them too.

Well hopefully that search is about to be over, here are some beautiful weddings I have captured in Shropshire over the last 15 years. I have had some amazing times, some fun times and some beautiful moments with all my couples. Here’s what one lovely bride wrote to me on social media the day after her wedding:

” Thank you so much for everything yesterday, you were absolutely great to have, really familiar, felt like you were just another guest..”

It is quite a magical county and that’s why I live here, I love the whole vibe of Shropshire, with its laid-back chilled way of life, having worked all around the country, and abroad, I really love a good old-fashioned “home” wedding too. Whether it’s in a private garden, in a Marquee on one of the many beautiful Shropshire hills, or in a gorgeous venue like Iscoyd Park, Shropshire has so much to offer for you and your Wedding Photographer.

Wow wow wow..
If you’ve made it this far looking for a wedding photographer, look no further. Phil is THE best there is.

Not only does Phil produce beautiful photos, each worthy of hanging in an art gallery, but he has the most kind, honest and pure of hearts.
He is always more than happy to make sure that you feel comfortable on your special day.
He’s super friendly and easy to chat with when needed but equally disappears into the background when needed.

I couldn’t possibly recommend Phil highly enough.
If I could go back and do it all again (I wish!) I would choose Phil in a heartbeat.

Thank you, Phil, for capturing so many beautiful moments that we’ll carry all the way through life.
