Leicestershire Local

I know and love Leicester, its hidden gems, and stunning backdrops. This insider knowledge helps me capture your wedding's essence, whether it's the romantic charm of Belvoir Castle or the vibrant energy of the Golden Mile.

not just a leicester wedding photographer

Mary Poppins with a Camera is a name I have been particular proud of over the years. After almost 500 weddings you get to know what is useful to have with you i.e. a crochet hook for the dress, blister pads, spare cufflinks etc. It also teaches you things like how to tie a good full Windsor knot or how to lace a corset backed dress!

"Chris was amazing when he took our wedding photos.

He made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease!"

"It felt like he was part of the family and one of the guests. He helped us with preparations and went above and beyond to make our day perfect.

The pictures we have received so far are beautiful and just what we wanted.

We would definitely recommend Chris!"

Why Should We Book You as our Leicester Wedding Photographer?

Why Choose a Local Leicester Wedding Photographer?

My approach goes beyond just capturing snapshots. I strive to document the heart and soul of your wedding, telling your unique story through images that evoke emotions and memories. This means immersing myself in your celebration, getting to know you as a couple, and anticipating those candid moments that truly reflect your personalities. From the joyful tears during your vows to the laughter shared with loved ones on the dance floor, I'll be there to discreetly capture the essence of your Leicester wedding day. I also step out of the traditional role of a photographer and work closely with any management/planning staff to ensure your day works as smoothly as possible, removing as much stress and unnecessary faff. This allows you to relaxed and enjoy your wedding day to the max, which will be captured in my photographs.

Choosing a local photographer like myself brings distinct advantages. I possess an extensive understanding of Leicester and Leicestershire's diverse locations, from historical landmarks to hidden gardens, allowing me to utilise the city's unique charm as a backdrop for your wedding story. Whether you seek the elegance of Prestwold Hall or the rustic beauty of Bradgate Park, I'll guide you to stunning settings that enhance your wedding aesthetic and tell your love story visually. Additionally, having local connections enables me to navigate unforeseen situations smoothly, ensuring your peace of mind on your special day.

Prestwold Hall is a stunning Grade I stately home in the heart of the Leicestershire Wolds, between Leicester & Loughborough. The beautiful architecture and the amazing grounds are the perfect background for your wedding. The staff are so attentive and helpful. The food is top notch and fresh! There are so many photo opportunities, we would run out of time before we run out of ideas

With the elegant grandeur of the Main House and the tranquil landscaped gardens providing the perfect backdrop, Stapleford Park is a fantastic venue for your wedding. I have shot weddings from 12 people to nearly 200 people at this venue and each of them were different and stunning! You are well looked after with well trained staff and again the food is amazing!

Sat in the corner of North West Leicestershire, near East Midlands Airport, is this quirky converted venue. Get married in the restored period barn, then enjoy the scrumptious food in the old pig sties. The grounds and surrounding area have so many different options for photos that each wedding I have shot there has something different to the last.


Wedding Venues

This is one of the most popular venues in Leicestershire and one I have enjoyed photographing at many times. Come rain or shine there are photo opportunities aplenty. The staff know exactly what they are doing so you are in good hands and the kitchen make some of the best wedding food in the county. Plenty of spaces for you and your guests to chill and relax, having the best day ever!
