Hi, I’m Mark – a Doncaster-based wedding photographer covering the UK and Europe (that’s me below with the camera around my neck in 1982 aged 11 years old) so you could say I’ve always been interested in photographing weddings! Check out those 80’s hairstyles!

Away from wedding photography, I live in a house full of ladies. My wife Stacey runs her own painting workshop company and we’re lucky enough to have three beautiful daughters, Macy, Betty and Cissy. Even our cats, Layo and Bushwacka (interesting names to shout first thing in the morning) and Winny with whippet (Stacey named the dog) are ladies, so you will have probably guessed by now I’m a very patient person.

I have a love of house music and own an extensive collection of vinyl records(1993-1998)  This all developed from living and working in Ibiza for three seasons in the early nineties. One of my career goals is to shoot destination weddings. Right up there on my hit list is the island of Ibiza, so if you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Ibiza, I’m in.
