Nottingham wedding photographer

Looking for a Nottingham wedding photographer who captures authentic moments and timeless emotions? Well you've come to the right place! I'm Chris Bunce, a relaxed, fun wedding photographer passionate about telling your unique love story through beautiful, natural images. Whether you're planning a massive party at Wollaton Hall or a smaller, intimate gathering at The Old Vicarage, I'll be there to discreetly document every tear, laugh, and heartfelt connection.


Nottinghamshire born

I was born at the QMC, grew up in Hucknall and have explored Nottinghamshire from a young age. This insider knowledge helps me capture your wedding's soul, whether it's the grandeur of Norwood Park or the beauty of Swancar Farm Country House. Having grown up and photographed here for over 3 decades, I have a lot of experience of this exciting city and the beautiful countryside that surrounds it.

Storytelling, Not Posing

My style focuses on natural moments and genuine emotions. I believe your wedding day should be filled with joy and spontaneity, not forced poses.

Experience You Can Trust

With almost 500 weddings photographed, I have the experience and expertise to navigate any situation while remaining unobtrusive.

memories that will last

I deliver high-resolution images that beautifully capture the magic of your day, allowing you to relive it for years to come.


Personalised Approach

I take the time to understand your vision, preferences, and unique story. This ensures your photos reflect your personalities and the special moments that matter most.

Flexible Coverage

I offer a flexible approach to my photography whether you're looking for full-day coverage or more intimate packages. Let me know what you are looking for and I can put together a package for you.

Unforgettable Experience

I pride myself on creating a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for you and your guests, letting you enjoy your wedding day to the fullest and not worrying about being constantly on show!

not just a 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!

"We had the most amazing experience with Chris as our wedding photographer. "

He was very responsive from our initial email onwards and it only took a chat over zoom to know he'd be a great fit for our day. He was so warm and friendly that we were immediately put at ease.

On the day itself Chris was so helpful in helping things run smoothly and was an invaluable source of wedding know-how. Thanks to his gentle reminders we are able to stick to all the timings planned on the day and get photos of everything we wanted. I cannot overstate how helpful this was on an already manic day!

Chris even spotted a rainbow at the end of the night while we were on the dance floor and got us outside for a picture which was amazing. We are so happy with the photos and our whole experience.

We wholeheartedly recommend Chris - not only for his outstanding photography - but also his incredible people skills and helpfulness on the day. Thank you, Chris!

Why Should We Book You as our Nottingham Wedding Photographer?

Why Choose a Local Nottingham 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 Nottinghamshire 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 Nottingham and Nottinghamshire'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 Norwood Park or the beauty of Rufford Country 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.

Who wouldn't want to get married at Batman's home? The stunning building was used as Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises. Along with the striking architecture, the grounds are beautiful and well looked after. I have had the pleasure of photographing here multiple times and I am no where near to using all the different photography options.


Wedding Venues

Tucked away within its own grounds with wonderful rural views, The Carriage Hall provides an idyllic setting for intimate wedding receptions up to huge parties with 100s of your nearest and dearest! It is a beautiful converted Victorian railway goods shed and provides a fantastic backdrop to your wedding. Even in the rain, there are some great backdrops for couple's photos!

Tucked away, secluded south of Nottingham, at the end of a long track, Swancar Farm Country House is a beautiful country house venue, with loads of space for you to enjoy your day with your friends and family. With loads of great rooms for getting ready in the morning, plus staff that can't do enough to look after you, you can't go wrong with Swancar. I love photographing there and have done a lot.

Colwick Hall Hotel is a magnificent Palladian style Georgian country house mansion nestling in over sixty acres of parkland. A historic building dating back to Saxon times and once the ancestral home of Lord Byron! I have had the pleasure of photographing here numerous times including one of the most unusual weddings I have had the pleasure to photograph, a Dungeons & Dragons themed wedding!
