It’s so exciting to imagine how your wedding day will be. You’re planning a beautiful and special day of course, but until it actually arrives (and even then), it will still feel like a dream. You’ll want to take in every treasured moment, but you just know that the day will fly by. 

That’s why it’s so important to find the right photographer. You need to trust that they’ll create a stunning record of the big day and all its tiny details. They’ll need to capture the joy, romance, love and laughter; the formal moments, the quiet reflections, the shared glances. And wouldn’t it be great if they could do all of that, but without interrupting the day?

Happily, I agree - keeping things flowing is my first priority. It’s been my absolute pleasure to photograph many weddings in my career. I attend each one never forgetting that I’m a guest at a momentous occasion, invited simply to tell the story of the start of a couple’s new life together. 

My name is Martyn Greswolde and I am a documentary wedding photographer. Welcome to my site.
Please browse my galleries, or read more about the way I work. 

Then let’s talk about what you’d like from a photographer, and you can see if I fit the bill – it’s your day, after all.

ABOUT ME

DOCUMENTARY
WEDDING
PHOTOGRAPHER

I took my first photograph aged 11, on my Dad’s ‘Zenith’ 35mm camera, and have been hooked ever since.

My career in photography almost started by accident (it’s a long story – I’ll tell you when we meet!), and I still enjoy every moment. Over the years, my style and technique have changed and developed, as I’ve studied and learnt from the profession’s finest. It’s from these studies that my love of black & white images, and their ability to convey emotional intensity, first emerged.

As a documentary wedding photographer, I’ve covered a whole spectrum of events and situations, both in the UK and in Europe. But my principal passion is for photographing people, and so weddings will always be at the heart of my work. I’ve recorded small, intimate weddings as well as grand, breathtaking events – and everything in between. But regardless of scale or location, it’s the 

couples whose pictures I take that make this the most rewarding job in the world. And the knowledge that I’m giving them the gift of a visual record of their own story, and the ability to re-tell and re-live it whenever they wish.

I’m based right on the border of Staffordshire, Shropshire and the West Midlands, and am honoured to be a recommended wedding photographer for local venues such as Chillington Hall, Somerford Hall, Pendrell Hall, Alrewas Hayes, Hogarths Hotel and The Heath House. But I love to travel, and also cover weddings across the UK and in Europe.

I also offer location portraits once the big day has passed. Informal and great fun, these capture your new life as you grow together as a couple – and maybe even as you welcome new additions to your family...

PORTFOLIO

WHAT TO EXPECT

GET IN TOUCH

these THINGS
ARE IMPORTANT

I’m there to tell the story of your day; to capture all the key moments as well as some of the happenings that you would otherwise miss. I know that I do my best work and get the most natural pictures when people have forgotten I’m there, and that’s what I aim for.

I’ll take time to meet with you and to get to know both of you before the big day, so that you’re at ease with what I’m doing, in advance. You can tell me what you’d like (and what you wouldn’t!) and I can make sure I work accordingly.

On the day, I’ll be unobtrusive, dressed as a guest. It’s not my style to hold up the event for a myriad of posed photographs. (Of course, if you want group shots and portraits, I’ll ensure that they’re done, but without stealing precious time away from you and your guests). 

So, I’ll photograph the bride at home; later, the groom as he waits for her to arrive. I’ll capture the wedding service and immediately afterwards, as you greet your guests as newly-weds and they offer their joy and congratulations. I will follow as you move onto your venue, capturing events as they unfold, and recording interactions between you and your guests. At some stage, I’ll sneak the couple away for some portraits – if possible outside, at sunset. But I’ll have done my homework, and will know exactly where we’re going and what we’re doing, so you won’t be missing for long!

If you’ve booked me for 10 hours’ coverage or more, whilst you and your guests are sitting down for your wedding breakfast, I will prepare a slide show of the day so far. To be played after the speeches (which I will also photograph), this lovely moment never fails to delight and surprise. And if you’d like a record of the evening reception, I will of course, stay to capture it.

And then my work – on the day – is done.

Within a week, you will be able to see your edited gallery online, which you can share with your friends and family. You’ll then have the delightfully difficult task of selecting the photographs you’d like to include in your printed album, and the image you’d like to use for your thank you cards, if you’re ordering them from me. Before you know it, your album will arrive, and you’ll experience the fabulous feeling of opening it up for the very first time. 

After that, how the rest of your story unfolds is up to you...
