How to feel 100% comfortable with your wedding photographer.

I love the emotion and fun a wedding day brings. I still get butterflies before every wedding. So documenting and capturing these unique and special moments is natural to me. It is crazy how many couples say they hate getting their photo taken, like 99%.
I capture real and unposed emotion, laughter and tears as they happen. I have many little tricks to get true feelings with loads of interactions between you both, easing any awkward, cheesy photos.
You won’t even know I’m taking photos.
It’s hard for me to describe my style, as so many factors go into a wedding day. Every couple & venue is different, the weather & sun can also have a huge impact on your wedding photographs. I love to chase and play with the light, often getting myself into some sticky situations, but it’s always worth it for amazing wedding photographs.


This man is an absolute legend. So dedicated to getting the perfect shot he ended up in a big pile of manure nee deep. Best Photographer in the world @leighton_bainbridge_Photography Thanks Again
Leigh & Jamie


Just dropping an email to say thank you so so much. We've eventually had a chance to look through all the pictures and I can honestly say I love every single one. I love how natural they are and they look so professional. People have said they look like there out of a magazine 😀 haha. I'm also so impressed with how much you've managed to capture. You must be knackered after a full day off that. Nonstop. There all amazing. I'll make sure I will pass your name on as I would highly recommend you to everyone!

Leighton, you really did go above and beyond our expectations, Our pictures look absolutely stunning. You made us feel so relaxed, and loads of people from the party commented on our pictures and how good you were on the day, mixing with the guests and helping out where ever you could. We would recommend to anyone.

What is


No limitations

No restrictions on how many photos I take or you receive. Lovingly edited to my unique style.

Full day coverage

Full day coverage means full day 😀 Bridal prep – First dance, staying extra for the mover & shakers and then finishing with a twilight photo.


I do plan around your wedding very meticulously making sure I have plenty of contingency plans for added peace of mind. As this day is as important to me as it is you.

Pre Wedding

For local weddings a pre wedding shoot is included & this is a great way to ease them pesky nerves ready for the big day.

Sneaky Peek

A selection of my favourite photos up on my blog with in a week of the wedding. The rest of the images follow 4-6 weeks after (industry standard 3-6 months.)

Hand Crafted Albums

Albums are an additional extra but are beautifully hand crafted in New Zealand by Queensberry Albums. Starting at £300.

All travel costs

The last thing you want right before your big day is a hidden charge and thats why both travel and accommodation is included.

Online gallery

Your very own webpage with all your images easily accessible and downloadable watermark free. UK weddings also get a USB.


I have plenty of tricks & techniques to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, but your feelings and enjoyment come before the photo. I tailor my approach completely to you.

Natural coverage

I enjoy catching the action exactly as it happens, so the day remains yours to remember forever. I blend in with your guests so its your wedding, your way, to spend with your family & Friends.

Hey, I’m Leighton

A wedding photographer, who loves to click, travel & Cycle.

I like to take DAMN good photos with pretty awesome people all across the world.

It’s fair to say I am the best climbing frame, bouncy castle, pirate, princess, singer, dancer, roller coaster, book reader, pony & sweet sharer. Well, that’s according to my daughter Nancy, haha and when Charley Bear is big enough I’m sure I’ll be doing it all again. Yes, I’m lucky to be surrounded by 3 amazing ladies/baby.
I’m clearly going to be outnumbered in any decision making for the next 20 years. It’s also probably why I always get a little tearful when it comes to fathers first look, walking down the aisle, speech and father-daughter dance.
I have a huge passion for photography and it is impossible to call it a job but when not photographing, w-editing and spending time with the family, I’m a lycra wearing, lane hogging cyclist who likes cake & coffee 🙂
