About

If anyone tells you "it's a doddle to write a few sentences about yourself", they're lying.

I'm a bit of a giant, and probably the calmest person you'll ever meet. My party tricks include the ability to sleep anywhere (it's had me booted out of many a nightclub), and scary mental arithmetic ability, which strangely improves with alcohol consumption.

I'm a qualified pilot (random I know), with an unwavering love for travel - I'll admit to being equally as excited to find out about your honeymoon plans as your wedding.

I'm also a huge foodie, to the point where the wife has to hide my stash out sweets. And crisps. And chocolate (basically anything with carbs). I'll always have Haribo to hand on a wedding day, and I've got more chance of remembering a venue by the canapés they serve than it's actual name.

The Team

It's safe to say it's a family business here at Monkeymole Towers.

I'm generally described as the chief button presser, and culprit of all mischief (at home and at weddings).

Clients will however now have increasing contact from Natalie (my much better half), as she rolls up the sleeves to assist with everything from an admin perspective. This can range from; initial replies to enquiries, through to organising client questionnaires and timely delivery of galleries. She's definitely the sensible one of the team, and certainly runs a tight ship!

You'll also see we've our first "junior editor" due to join the Monkeymole team by the end of 2020. As my current responsibilities are limited to taking pictures and ordering takeaways, it's an addition I'm a little nervous about (not that it's obvious in the picture...).

Style

I proudly fly the flag of being "not your normal wedding photographer" - heck, I'd go as far as calling me a professional wedding crasher with cameras. I'll get the groomsmen on the Dutch courage, start the bridesmaids on the Prosecco, and even throw some shapes with you on the dance floor once the evening kicks into life.

I do away with the forced unnatural posing people come to expect with wedding photography, and instead focus on sparking the real laughter and emotion that comes naturally with weddings.

All of the work you'll see on my website are real couples, having real weddings, showing real emotion. My style never feels like a glorified photoshoot - just plenty of good old fun & laughter, and plenty of "I never even knew you took that picture!!" when the gallery gets delivered.

Erm, Monkeymole..?

Okay, so here goes. The brand is named after my rather wonderful wife, who is the inspiration behind me taking a leap of faith into life as a wedding photographer.

After capturing a few friends weddings, I started receiving a few "I don't suppose you fancy capturing our wedding too?" type messages, which I initially dismissed. It was only when the wife told me she'd booked me two weddings, that I really didn't have a choice.. (I do love capturing weddings - honest!).

As such, I needed a brand, and wanted to incorporate the wife. Those that have met her, will know during the day she typifies a monkey; bundles of energy, lots of noise, and thinks I'm a 6ft5 climbing frame. The mornings however, she's a newly born mole; barely moves, doesn't make a peep, and can barely open those little eyes!

From there, Monkeymole was born..
