Hello! I'm Dominic, an award winning wedding and family portrait photographer. Based in Suffolk, I will shoot your wedding or portrait session across East Anglia and beyond.


Most importantly, my photographs tell stories. The story of your wedding, your family or your occasion.


Authentic photography, created with honesty, passion and flair.

Butley Priory wedding photography

Butley Priory is a unique and captivating wedding venue just a few miles from Suffolk's Heritage Coast. Whether your ideal wedding is small & intimate or large & outrageous, Butley Priory offers a range of flexible options to suit.


Photographing weddings here is an absolute joy. The building is full of photogenic original features which, coupled with big windows allowing soft, flattering light to flood in, make the Priory a photographers dream.


Wedding day portraits can be taken in the extensive grounds which comprise lawns, heath and woodland. If the weather is being less than kind, it's no problem to find a few quiet spots indoors which work equally well.


Family and groups shots can be taken in the Great Hall or manicured gardens.


Couples who book me to photograph their wedding here will also have the peace of mind of knowing I'm one of a small group of local wedding professionals and suppliers recommended by Butley Priory. Only those who've proved themselves to be reliable and conscientious professionals make the grade and I'm flattered to be included.

My three top features about Butley Priory


Having photographed weddings across the whole of East Anglia and the UK, I've never come across another wedding venue quite like Butley Priory.


Unique is an overused word these days, but with its mix of architecture and setting I can't think of anywhere similar.


If a truly individual approach is your thing, then Butley Priory could be a great wedding venue choice.


The recommended caterer will work with you to create a menu you'll love and the venue team can suggest suppliers to make your visit a reality.

Pilgrims Room

What could be better than having a 'secret' bar!


The pilgrim's room is where the Priory's monks would have dispensed alms and refreshments to weary travellers. Now it's a fab little gin bar - service refreshments of a slightly different kind to your wedding guests!
