Blink and your wedding day will be over. If all you can remember is being posed for endless photos, that would be a sad memory to retain.
Wouldn’t it be far better if you remembered chatting, laughing and enjoying the company of your family and friends, and at the same time had a great collection of those story-telling moments captured for posterity? This is my aim as a Birmingham wedding photographer.

Wherever your wedding is, whether it’s in The West Midlands or further afield, my shooting style always focuses on photographing people and their interactions with each other. The love and romance between you both. The natural, unguarded, and genuine moments that happen with your family and friends. Capturing the story-telling frames that stand the test of time.
No fussing or faffing about taking endless posed photos.


From the moment we saw Clive’s work we knew we HAD to have him photograph our wedding. His documentary style photos were just stunning. The natural style and un-posed pictures are what we just fell in love with.

Thank you so much for being our photographer and being so accommodating with all our changes! I’m so grateful that you could be there to capture our covid wedding.
