When the time comes, you will be united with your soulmate.  When the time has gone, all that will be left are memories.

The importance of photography on your wedding day goes far beyond “pretty photos”, the photos are a timestamp, marking one of the most significant moments in your life, a time when you promise your love to your soulmate; a time spent with your family and closest friends.  The images captured will live on beyond your lifetime and be passed down generations as treasured heirlooms, their importance cannot be overstated.

Your story is just as unique as you are.  I don’t tell the same story twice or rely on things I know will work, I want to create work that is personal to you, that will be with you for a lifetime and that will be cherished by your family forever.

Capturing moments and creating memories all over the world

Patrick somerset wedding photographer

Hey, I’m Patrick!

When I was a child, I remember looking out of the car window at all the cars and their occupants all going about their day, all with a destination in mind, perhaps they were going to see family, maybe friends, or maybe just a day out.  What fascinated me at that young age was that each and every one of them had their own lives.  They had friends, they had family, they had jobs, they had their own stresses, they had their own thoughts.

My interest in other people’s lives wasn’t just me being nosey, although it could easily be perceived this way!  My interest in other people’s lives continues to this day and by this, I do not mean that I watch the Kardashians…  I recognise that every one of us lives a life that is totally unique and we all have a story to tell.  Being British we tend to shrug off the question as talking about oneself could be perceived as being conceited, however, in the USA, it is a normal question to ask – “So, what’s your story?”.

My early years observing and thinking, led me to study documentary photography which gave me the skills and tools to tell a story through my photos.  My passion lies in meeting people and learning about them no matter what walk of life they are on.  I want to influence that moment as little as possible, simply being an observer rather than a partaker, this, in my opinion, makes for the most genuine fragments of time, preserved in a photo.

I now live with my family in a remote spot on Exmoor in Somerset.  I have been fortunate to travel to many beautiful locations and meet people from all walks of life, from the homeless to some of the world’s wealthiest.  My time spent with others has confirmed that it’s not what we have, but who we are that is important, and that is what I love to capture.  My passion for wedding photography stems from my interest in others and the positivity, love and joy of weddings.  Being granted access to such a private and significant event is a huge honour and not one which I do not take lightly.

When I’m not photographing, I am spending time with my family, walking my dog or kiteboarding.

Now it’s your turn!  Tell me your story…

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.
We would 100% recommend Patrick for your big day. Our photos are so beautiful and he has made them into a cherished memory.

Chris & Lotty

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 you

Lee & 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.
