Recommended Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer
Choosing the right wedding photographer is an incredibly important decision. Your pictures will be one of your only physical reminders of your day. It’s important you choose someone easy to get along with, someone who can communicate effectively and someone who is passionate about their art. A sense of humour helps too…
Below are a selection of recent reviews from weddings I was privileged to be part of.
My Facebook page and Instagram will also give you a good feel of the type of person and photographer I am. If you are allergic to exclamation marks, please look away now…
Marcus sent us our photos at lightning speed- and they are absolutely phenomenal. Asking Marcus to shoot our wedding was the first joint decision we made and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. We got endless compliments on the engagement photos he took way back in May. He was game to have some fun with props we brought (smoke bombs!) and tried a lot of different things to get us to warm up in front of his lens. At the wedding, he was a treat and our guests are raving about the amazing photos. Thanks a million Marcus- we’re so happy with everything.
Araba and Jon
Marcus, we know we have said this a million times already but we just want to say a HUGE thank you for being our photographer at our wedding in November. You captured the day to perfection and we have memories to last a lifetime! The hardest task now is picking a favourite!! From the minute we met you, we knew you were the one!! We absolutely loved our pre-wedding shoot and honesly couldn’t recommend this more as it really made us feel so at ease on our wedding day. We have had so many brilliant comments about you and your photos from our guests – you really did a truly fantastic job, thank you.
Caroline and Ian
We wanted to say theank you for our amazing wedding pictures. Although we hadn’t met you before the day, we both felt so relaxed upon meeting you and you were a welcome addition to our wedding. The pictures are so lovely, that every time we look at them we find a new favourite. You caotured all the small details that we spent hours discussing but actually didn’t see on the day, so we are very grateful for the wonderful memories. Hopefully one day we can use you for a family shoot!
Louise and Stu
Thank you so much Marcus for our amazing wedding photos we are so pleased with the result! You really captured the fun relaxed feeling from the day and everyone looks so comfortable and happy which is a true reflection on you as a person too. Many of our guests also said how lovely you were. You were very professional and organised the group shots we wanted quickly and then got some beautiful shots of Dan and I. From your style of photography we didn’t feel like we were taken away from our guests for too long and we could really enjoy the day so got some great natural shots too. Our photos are beautiful and we will enjoy looking at them and sharing them to take us back to the best day of our lives! Thank you so much!
Dan and Katie
Thank you so so much for our incredible wedding photos, we really can’t quite describe how much we love them. Sitting down to look through the photos has made us laugh and cry, they tell the story of the day so beautifully – bringing it to life with colour and somehow manage to capture the emotion, laughter and antics in a still image. They are everything we hoped for, lots of natural photos of our friends and family having an incredible time! Chris and I don’t consider ourselves the most photogenic or confident in front of the camera, but you really put us at ease and made it so much fun . In fact the times we slipped away with you to get photos as a couple are some of our favourite moments from the day. We can’t recommend you enough!
Rachel and Chris
We are so pleased we chose you Marcus to photograph our Wedding. We really enjoyed getting to know you on the engagement shoot and on the big day itself you were so relaxed and put everyone at ease, even my Mum! You’ve provided us with an amazing set of photos which we will treasure forever. I’d wholeheartedly recommend you to any couple looking for a wedding photographer. And although our wedding is now over, the photos we now have will provide us with memories to last a lifetime, and we’ll be forever grateful to you for that.
Rebecca and Chris
When we met up with you, we felt like you knew exactly what we wanted. We booked you straight away and included a pre-shoot which we were dreading! You made us feel so relaxed and we got into the swing of it after a few shots. Once we got those images back we knew you were going to do an amazing job at the wedding and we were not wrong! We honestly cannot thank you enough. You really captured the feel of the day and I need to say sorry for giving you more editing work with the bouncy castle shots! But we’re actually not sorry as they look awesome! We couldn’t have picked a better photographer and will 100% recommend you to all our friends and family.
Rebecca and Kevin
Alex and I could not recommend you more, Marcus. After we initially set up our pub-based hello after coming across your website and loving your style of photography, we booked 20 minutes after we left and we are so glad we did. The photos are everything that we were hoping and reflect our lovely day perfectly. Alex and I knew from the start that we wanted relaxed photos that were vibrant and captured moments not poses. We couldn’t be happier – thank you!
Alex and Lauren
It’s difficult to put into words how thrilled we were that you photographed our wedding – from when we first met you we knew we were onto something special. You really truly brought the wedding to life through your pictures and we are able to relive the day again and again (and again!) by looking through them. Neither of us have liked having our photo taken in the past but your enthusiasm and happy spirit really made it such a great experience. The colour and life that comes through in your images is amazing – as I said, it’s hard to put into words how pleased we are and they are pictures that we will always treasure. Thank you so, so much!
Edward and Hannah
We wanted to say thank you very much for our wedding pictures. They are simply amazing and everything we could have wished for! You captured those special moments without us realising it – the image attached is one of our favourites! We are about to head off on our honeymoon which will bring back such wonderful memories of our day.
Victoria and Colin
Thank you so much for being such a wonderful photographer – we absolutely love the photos – they completely capture our perfect day. We were delighted with the end product. Thanks also for how easy you made the day, you blended in so naturally – which was especially important whilst getting ready. We really appreciate it.
John and Lucy
Thank you so much for all your hard work, patience and understanding both before and on our wedding day. We have never classed ourselves as being overly photogenic but you have created such beautiful pictures and captured so many wonderful memories of love, laughter and emotion. We are forever indebted to you. Looking through the images was such a joy and will remain that way for the rest of our lives.
Abby and Russ
Our wedding day flew by so we are so incredibly grateful to you for truly capturing the essence of the day with the most beautiful set of photographs. When looking for a photographer, we were looking for the right person – not just someone who would take brilliant photographs but also someone who we felt comfortable around and who would fit into our day. We were lucky to find all of these attributes in you, Marcus. You were utterly fantastic from start to finish, we cannot praise you highly enough.
Jon and Jess
The images are absolutely stunning – you really captured every element of our day – such beautiful vibrant colours, really inventive pictures and so many images. From your relaxed personality right through to the stunning result of the images captured. We are extremely grateful for the time and effort you put into our wedding.Thankyou so much for everything, we are delighted.
Wills and Jody
Marcus you haven’t only given us indescribably stunning pictures from our unforgettable wedding day. You have given us a way of experiencing it over and over again. It was absolutely great having you there with us all day, for not only are you the greatest photographer ever (I have 40 other Norwegians to back me up on that!), you are also a truly wonderful person who made us feel so comfortable.
Erik and Sabrina
We wanted to officially say a huge thank you for everything! Thank you for being such a wonderful, fun and friendly photographer, you made us feel at ease when we first met you on our engagement shoot and so many people commented on how fabulous and friendly you were on the day. We love that nothing was too much effort. Most importantly, thank you for our beautiful photos.You truly captured our day so perfectly, every detail and personality shines through and your photos really represent the memories we will treasure forever.
Rhys and Emma
Marcus, thank you so so so much! I’ll never be able to thank you enough for all the amazing photos. I’ve done no work today as I’ve just been looking through them all so I’ll probably be fired but at least I’ll have the pictures. They just bring back all the happy memories. I can’t wait to sit down with my parents and view the slideshow. I literally can’t wait to show everyone. Those pictures are so special to us – they are beyond beautiful.
Lucy and Nick
From the moment we met you, we knew we had landed ourselves not only a brilliant photographer but also a whole heap of fun too! Doing a pre=shoot was one of my favourite days leading up to the wedding; we laughed all day long and LOVED the pictures. I have no idea where you were on our wedding day but you captured, the love, the emotion, the laughter and the tears perfectly. Doing a first look with you was a fabulous idea – they are magical pictures we will treasure forever. Not only are you a thoroughly good bloke, a great laugh and fabulous to work with – you are also a genius photographer.
Nicky and David

Marcus! We are all absolutely blown away! You have captured the best day of our lives in such a way that will allow all of us to keep the memories fresh in our minds forever. We can’t thanks you enough. No words can really explain how grateful we are. You have been amazing all the way through! How lucky are we that we had a guy like you (who I genuinely feel like I could now call a friend) to make a day that’s gone in the blink of an eye, everlasting through your photos. You are truly talented!
Richard and Charlotte
Marcus, we wanted to say a huge thankyou for being awesome! We are so glad we chose you as our wedding photographer. We knew when we met you that you were the right man for the job! It was like having another friend with us there on the wedding day, we felt so at ease with you and everyone has said what a fantastic job you did. Thank you for such wonderful photos, memories to treasure forever.
Mike and Rachel
We received the photos last night and looked at them all over a glass (or two or three) of wine. They are GORGEOUS, so, so happy, you did an amazing job.I keep having another peek at them during the day. We love everything you did…you are really amazing! Also thankyou for spending the day with us, it wouldn’t have been the same without you.
Mark and Jeannine
We have received the pictures and all I can say is WOW – we love them.You had hard subjects to work with and you managed to get great pictures of the day (I had my eyes open and everything!) It was great to get some really natural pictures of everyone enjoying themselves – the ones of dad and me I particularly love. Thank you for being part of our day and doing such an amazing job!
Stuart and Laurie
We wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all the card work you carried out on the day and all the prep in the lead up.

Marcus, we wanted to thank you so much for taking the photos on our wedding day. It all went by in such a blur that having the photos that you took is the most wonderful gift – you captured the laughter, the tears of joy and the whole atmosphere of the day so perfectly. I cannot stop looking at the images and smiling. I have recommended you countless times and will continue to do so. Massive thank you!

We wanted to thank you for capturing our wedding day so perfectly. We have just received the album which we are thrilled with. It was brilliant to meet you too before the day for our engagement shoot which put us at ease in from of the camera. You were so professional on the day, we hardly knew you were there. Many of our guests commented on how great they thought you were.
James and Jessica
I don’t think we can or ever will get tired of looking through our wedding photos. You captured how the day felt in every picture, our best day ever. I don’t even remember seeing you take any! You’re fabulous and will be recommended to everyone I know. My official ‘family photographer!’
Cerri and Rich
Hi Marcus, we received the lovely little box of wonderful photos yesterday, thank you so much, they are amazing! You have captured the feel of the day so well and the shots of Le Manoir deserve a whole album on their own.
