To me, a wedding is a celebration of two wild hearts. Their unfaltering love. Their fears and strengths openly displayed for all to watch. Letting everyone know that they don’t want to live without the other.
Everybody is unique, therefore, every relationship is also unique. Your wedding photography should show who you are, your love for one another and your true personality. Gone are the days of forced grins and cliche poses; I believe in making the photography about you and, more importantly, for you.
Love is an adventure in itself, full of adrenaline-fuelled moments, shared memories, laughter and tears. These moments remind us of what is most important in our lives, it’s all about the journey, not the vehicle you are in. Getting to share that trip with your soulmate makes everything a million times better, both the highs and the lows.
Your wedding is an opportunity to share your love, your friendship and your commitments with your absolute nearest and dearest. It is a once in a lifetime event, binding two free spirits into something that will only grow stronger with time.
My goal is to preserve the memories created at your wedding. The photographs made on your wedding day will last for generations, so I want to ensure that they do your love justice.
The world would be just fine without photography if there were time machines, but since nobody has created them yet, I am here to offer you one! It’s in my power to bring you back to the day when you got married surrounded by the closest and dearest, or when you eloped on a windy mountain top shedding a tear while exchanging your vows. All of the big and little moments: the way each of them felt.
I am so pleased that you’ve stumbled upon my work and I believe it happened for a reason! I am a full-time wedding photographer based out of beautiful, artistic and inspiring Exmoor in Somerset. Slow living, long walks with our dog, water sports and quality time with my wife and children are what my life consists of. However, wild travelling and work (if you can call your hobby work!) are a huge part of my life too, as I am often on the road, capturing unique stories and connecting with wonderful people around Europe and the globe. You can read more about me here.
At the end of the day, the dress will be put back in the closet, the cake will be eaten and the decorations taken down. The photographs will forever remain the only material memory of your big day that will get passed down to future generations. As a wise man once said:
“ Don’t screw up!”
We asked Patrick to do our wedding photography after we had looked at some of his pictures on his website. Patricks portfolio was exactly what we were looking for, relaxed and natural. We knew this would fit in with ‘our day’ perfectly. He did an amazing job. From the very first consultation right up to the big day we found Patrick really approachable and very easy to chat to. He was very discreet and took the most amazing photographs for us. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patrick to our friends and family. Thank you Patrick!Lee & Suzie
"We found Patrick's website and having liked his portfolio we booked him to photograph our wedding and we couldn't recommend him enough. He's relaxed and friendly but also very thorough and makes sure he not only understands what you want but also the venue and the routine for the day. This means that he is very discreet (some of our guests didn't even realise there was a photographer) yet captures all the important moments."Alex & Jessie
We are so glad that we went with Wildly In Love for our wedding photography on 8th May. Patrick was so helpful and friendly from day one and was great to work with when trying to plan through all the ups and downs of the pandemic. He was brilliant on the day and managed to get some amazing shots, all in spite of bad weather and us being far from naturals in front of a camera! Patrick really put us at ease and we could not be happier with the photos. Thanks again Patrick!Rhys & Bryony
We had the most wonderful engagement shoot with Patrick! My partner and I aren’t keen on having our photos taken but Patrick made us feel comfortable straight away. He helped us choose a beautiful location that resembled us perfectly as a couple.Chris & Lotty
We would 100% recommend Patrick for your big day. Our photos are so beautiful and he has made them into a cherished memory.
Patrick was simply amazing and we thank him for capturing our special day in such a personal way. COVID 19 prevented our day from going as originally planned but Patrick was attentive and accommodating. At short-notice he arrived to truly capture the character of our relationship and our Wedding Day. Thank youLee & Karen
In Patrick we found our perfect wedding photographer. He listened to what we wanted, got to know us and managed to capture the love, fun and laughter of a small family wedding. Half the time we weren't even aware he was there, the results are some very beautiful photos that not only capture the magic of the day, but also make it very difficult too choose favourites, there are so many! Can't recommend him highly enough, thank you Patrick for helping to make our day extra special.Jeremy & Ann
