Wedding Photography & Videography based in Gloucestershire

I'm Marcus - a creative, documentary Gloucestershire wedding

photographer and videographer based in Cheltenham.


I am a proud father to two amazing boys, Tom and Ben, husband to the equally lovely Danielle and cat daddy to Kitty. When I'm not photographing weddings in the Cotswolds, it's family and adventure outdoors tend to feature highly.


I offer an unobtrusive, relaxed approach enabling you to enjoy your day while I focus on capturing true emotions as your wedding day unfolds. Put simply, my aim is to tell your best story. I'm always enthusiastic and will spend your wedding day seeking out the life, emotion, colour and fun!

Relaxed wedding photography

I love weddings. Every single one. Each couple,
location and ceremony is so special and unique. I have the pleasure of capturing lots of amazing moments on camera throughout Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties.


Prior to your wedding, I am on hand to offer advice if you need it. I work with you from your initial enquiry until the delivery of your album and often beyond this ensuring you get a service personal to you. On your wedding day, I'll be with you from 2-3 hours before your ceremony, capturing the excitement as you prepare for your day. I'll capture the emotion discretely along with the details, the little things that you have worked so hard to make perfect. Documentary wedding photography makes up a large part of my day. I'll capture your guests enjoying themselves and fit around you rather than you working around me.


Blending in enables me to anticipate what's about to happen. As the day progresses, I'll sometimes be shooting close by, sometimes
further away. You won't have to worry about me interrupting your day though. We will have discussed what's happening when beforehand so I'll know where I need to be. During your ceremony, I'll be discrete but I will still capture the important moments as you get married.

Of course, we'll also have some time for some couple shots of just the two of you away from your guests. This is often time for you to relax too and take in the day so far. Once the wedding breakfast has been eaten and the speeches spoken, I stay until around well after your first dance. If you'd like me to stay longer, I'd be more than happy to!

Wedding Photography and Film Testimonial

Marcus, what can we say that will convey what a truly fantastic job you have done for us. We were looking through your website and this caption you wrote caught our eye..

‘A story told through my camera using light, shadow, fun, emotion and connection. I love the idea that by capturing your wedding, I’m creating a spark to ignite your memories. My photographs are a tangible reminder of your day after the vows have been said and the confetti’s been thrown.’


This truly sums you, your work ethic, your professionalism and your end results up! When you first sent us our wedding highlight video, we could not stop watching it, with tears of joy every time, without fail. But we thought it was just us, being caught up in the memories, so we put your video to the test. We set it up, so we were watching friends
and families reactions when they watched it for the first time. We discovered it brought a tear to everyone, you really have created a masterpiece with our highlights video, capturing all the emotion. One that will be part of our most valued possessions.


Then we have our wedding pictures, set out in the most perfect way, accessible, organised and easy to store forever more. But the content of each picture is what blew us away, each one is an art composition in it’s own right, and for that reason, this is why it is so important for us to get across to anyone in the market for a wedding photographer, or a
photographer of anything.


Marcus comes very highly recommended by us. Since watching his talents at a friends wedding, to be lucky enough to book him for ours, to hanging out with him through the day, being gently shepherded into being part of our beautiful pictures, and then being
privileged to see the care and effort he has afforded us. The results really do speak for themselves. Please take your time, find our highlights video, and make your own minds up. Bigeye Photography without question made our wedding!
