“Simon is very passionate about what he does, which shines through in his service and photography”

I love Lake District weddings!

I'm married to Shelagh and moved to the Lake District around 16 years ago so our three children could grow up in this special place. We love everything about this wonderful county and all the opportunities it offers for fell walking, scrambling, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, camping... and photography, of course!

I've loved photography since my teens and come from a large family - I have two brothers, two sisters and 17 nephews and nieces - so it's no surprise I ended up as a family and then wedding photographer!

Weddings are such special occasions and so much fun to photograph - I've been told it's obvious how much I enjoy photographing weddings - so I'd love to capture your wedding for you too!

I cover the whole of the Lake District and Cumbria without any extra charges, including Ambleside, Bowness, Cockermouth, Kendal, Keswick, Newby Bridge, Penrith and Windermere. I'm also available nationwide and just ask for reasonable travel expenses in addition to my normal fees.​
