Kendal Wedding Photographer

Hi, I'm Mark, an award-winning wedding photographer based in Kendal, Cumbria

My photography style is typically unobtrusive, I’m not the sort of photographer that’s going to shout at your guests and dictate where they should be and what they should do - that said, I’m happy to direct moments when needed. Mostly though, I will just photograph your day as it naturally unfolds, anticipating those meaningful moments that I just know you will love. I look for stories within stories and moments between moments. Click here to tell me about your big day, I'm looking forward to hearing from you

Weddings in Kendal

Unlike photographers who advertise their wedding photography in Kendal to try to appear as if they are local and be listed at the top of search engine results, I am a wedding photographer who is actually based here in Kendal and has lived and worked here for over thirty years. I am extremely proud of my home town and love working here in Cumbria as a Kendal Wedding Photographer.

If you're planning a wedding in Kendal, then chances are that you will be getting married at one of our fabulous churches from the Unitarian Chapel to the Kendal Parish Church, or perhaps you're having a civil ceremony at the beautiful Castle Green Hotel or the Carus Green Golf Club. Wherever your wedding is in Kendal, I'm really looking forward to hearing from you.

“Our wedding was in August at Lakeside Hotel in Ulverston & as we live in Oxford, we didn't have a chance to meet Mark before our day. There was no concern about this on our end, as looking through his portfolio we felt he was the right man for the job, & we were absolutely right. He made my husband & I feel nothing but comfortable the whole time, & we are two people who are very awkward in front of a camera!

We are forever thankful & we would highly recommend Mark to anyone who asked!!”

- 2023/2024, Wedding Photography Investment/Pricing & Information -

Beautiful wedding photography is as much about you, as it is about your wedding. This is why I like to take the time to get to know you and to listen to your vision. There's nothing I love more than creating a complete story of your wedding day, so I would always recommend that your investment includes full-day coverage if possible. I will build your story in pictures...from the very smallest of details you have and haven't thought about to the moment when Dad freezes and tears up during his speech, I capture and I feel it all! I aim to produce natural and creative images that not only tell the story of your wedding day but also transport you back to that very moment and how you felt within that moment; when you look back at your wedding photos in years to come, I want you to not only remember but also to feel. If you're dreaming of the perfect wedding, then you’re in the right place. With over ten years of experience in photographing weddings, I know what it takes to create beautiful photographs - you can be confident that your memories are in good hands!

Only when arranged at the time of booking



This a chance for us to get to know each other and get some amazing engagement photos before your big day.



Receive a selection of fully edited photos from your wedding day within 48 hours. You will be itching to see some of your wedding photos as soon as possible and so, once backed up, I will choose a minimum of around 20 of my favourites that outline the story of your day. These will then be edited and uploaded to an online gallery so you can view, download, share on social media, produce thank you cards etc.



At peak times (June - September) due to the number of weddings I have to edit, it can sometimes take up to 12 weeks for your images to be carefully hand-edited one by one and delivered to you in a beautiful online gallery. I don't ever rush this but if you just can't wait this long, I can prioritise your photos with a view to having them back to you within 4 weeks. If this is of interest, please let me know at the time of booking; the availability of this service will be subject to how many priority editing bookings I have at the time of your wedding date.

Save your date!

I only take on a select number of weddings a year and popular dates do tend to book up quickly. If you'd like to book, please fill in the form to start the booking process. If I'm available I will provisionally save your date and send you further information.
