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 couple of photos next morning ready to share with the world. A selection of my favourite photos up on my blog within a week of the wedding. The rest of the images follow 4-6 weeks after (industry standard 3-6 months.)

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.

Trusted Supplier 

I’m lucky enough to be trusted and recommended supplier by some of the biggest North East wedding venues including Seaham Hall, Shotton Grange, Lumley Castle & Northside Farm.

I always got told to get a trade, and when I left school, that’s what I did. I completed an apprenticeship and became a metal worker/welder. From that first step into the factory though, I knew it was not for me. I spent 10 years in the trade, making some great friends, and it really brought me out of my shell. I couldn’t even pick up a phone and order a takeaway (well before you could do it on apps, may even be before mobiles haha.) I was soooo shy. 

I was constantly wondering what I wanted to actually do.

The moment hit when my wife and I started planning our own wedding. We visited our first and only wedding fair, and it was like a ton of bricks just crashed down on top of me. WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY! I remember seeing our photographers stand, and the goosebumps just went through my body. After talking to him for some time, I remember walking away and Katie saying to me “Well what do you think?” She of course meant for our photographer for our wedding lol. But I was way too excited, blurting out “I WANNA BE A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.” I always loved photography, but never knew I could actually make a living from it. Then receiving our photo memories back and reliving the day, I was mesmerised. 

That night after the wedding fair, I immediately signed up to do a diploma on a night. I also signed myself up to subscription websites where you learnt from the best photographers in the world. Then putting it all into practice, and ate, drank & slept everything photography. Honing in on perfecting my craft and building my business. 

Wedding photography still brings me so much joy and butterflies before every wedding. I can easily say I have the best job 🙂


After the DJ plays his final song, the cake gets eaten, the flowers wilt, and the dust of excitement surrounding the wedding settles. You’ll be left with magical timeless memories that you can look back on over and over…


Like when Gran threw the whole bucket of confetti at you, or your best man nailing his speech, having the room in laughter, or that first moment your father sees you in the dress and a tear rolls down his cheek. (Gets me every time.)





I love to document weddings in a natural, relaxed way. With no slice of cheese on the side. Or been taking away for hours for photographs.

Letting you enjoy your day the way you want. 

Throughout the day, I will look for little moments, gorgeous light, setting sun and perfect scenery to take the two of you away. With the way I shoot, I have some great tricks to get you both to interact with each other, creating the most beautiful free flowing photographs. I’m not afraid to offer a little guidance, but I leave all the emotion to you guys 😉

You’ll often find me lurking in the shadows like a ninja. Capturing all the little moments that happen throughout the day. 

I pride myself on being a key member of your arsenal, from crotchet hooks for the dress, making sure button holes and ties are looking sharp, getting confetti out your hair, your personal handbag for phones and makeup, making sure everyone is where they need to be, flower collector, I’ve even rocked up to weddings with Prosecco & McDonalds 😀 Not only your photographer but handy dandy helper and friend.

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.

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 daughters Nancy & Charlotte, haha. Yes, I’m lucky to be surrounded by 3 amazing ladies.
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 father’s 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 I’m not photographing, w-editing and spending time with the family, I’m a lycra wearing, lane hogging cyclist who likes cake & coffee 🙂
