Hampshire Wedding Photographer - Martin Lewis LMPA


This is the blog of Martin Lewis Photographer - an experienced full time wedding and special event photographer, based on the borders of Hampshire and West Sussex. Whether you are looking for high quality, yet realistically priced wedding photography in Hampshire, or a commercial or event photographer in West Sussex, Dorset, Wiltshire or Surrey, please contact me to obtain a high quality photography service.

From my base in Emsworth, near Portsmouth and Chichester, I am happy to travel throughout the South of England. I am a qualified member of the MPA and hold full professional and indemnity insurances, PAT Tested and CRB too, for your added protection and peace of mind.

I aim to be as professional and also unobtrusive as I can throughout all aspects of my work. By meeting each client I can tailor what I can offer to adapt my approach to ensure that your collection of images portrays your memories in a way that is unique to you and exactly how you would want it. Please feel free to contact me to check out my availability and to find out more and to tell me about your own ideas for your photography.

I also aim to provide the most affordable mid week local wedding photography options. Please contact me if this interests you. You can call or email me.

I also cover commercial photography and some portraiture - both in a studio environment and on location. High quality commercial photography can make a real difference to the image of your business or brand, but can still represent great value. For a relatively modest investment, I can provide you with a range of bespoke images of your staff, products or premises, that you can use for advertising, PR, web design and email, annual reports, internal and external newsletters, press or editorial, or even interior styling. I am presently offering great rates for property photography for estate agents and individual vendors or landlords. Please do get in touch to see what I can offer you.

You can always see samples of these areas on my Facebook page, this blog, or my website portfolios.
Please see my Wedding Photography Portfolio for more information on the options for your wedding photos. To check my availability, please contact me via Hampshire Wedding Photography

I am also an experienced event photographer, covering special or equestrian events - such as One Day Events, Hunter Trials, Show Jumping, Showing and Dressage, black tie events, graduations, ribbon cutting and all manner of opening ceremonies or special events.

Wedding Photographer at the Old Thorns Hotel, Golf and Country Club near Liphook in Hampshire

Today I was at the Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Golf and Country Club, near Liphook in Hampshire. I was doing the wedding photography for Chloe and Andy.
Chloe and Andy were great fun to work with and clearly had an enjoyable time. After a short ceremony, we all headed out of The Hampshire Suite, for an afternoon and evening of photos, a wedding breakfast and celebrations into the night. You can see the website of the fab Old Thorns Hotel here: www.oldthorns.com
I hadn’t attended the venue for a year or so and it is being extensively extended / expanded again! We were in the 'Hampshire Suite' and not the ‘Grand Ballroom’ location on this occasion at this fantastic venue. The highlights for me included photos on the golf course near to a lake and some other fabulous locations, with stunning views over Hampshire. We were driven around in a large golf buggy by the wedding coordinator who was very helpful and knew all the best places to visit. I have attached a few of those images to give you a flavor of the day and can’t wait until the next time I return to this fantastic (from a photography perspective) location for a wedding in Hampshire.
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Old Thorns again and got on well with the wedding coordinator and colleagues who were all very helpful to me.
The images will be available for viewing for Chloe and Andy and their families very soon.

Wedding photographer at the Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island

Today I was doing the wedding photography for Hannah and Richard who married at The Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island, near Portsmouth in Hampshire. I have uploaded a few favourite images here from their day and will be showcasing just a few images from each wedding or other special event I photograph during 2017.

The website for the hotel is here: www.langstonehotel.co.uk I love working at this venue, with its close proximity to my base, great views over the Langstone harbour for photos and very helpful and supportive staff (Franco, Jade, Emily and the team). I enjoy working at this hotel and frequently attend for weddings and other special events. This was my second wedding at the hotel within a week, but a very different day in terms of light and weather (dry and windy and very sunny)!

A sunny and breezy day - Hannah and Richard and their families were great to work with and we got a lovely collection of photos from the day.

I am currently offering some preferential rates for any remaining 2017 dates and into the Spring of 2018, subject to my availability. Please do get in touch - I look forward to possibly working for YOU too.

Wedding Photographer at the Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island

Today I was doing the photography for Josephine and Craig who married at The Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island, near Portsmouth in Hampshire. I have uploaded a few favourite images here from their day and will be showcasing just a few images from each wedding or event I photograph during 2017.

The website for the hotel is here: www.langstonehotel.co.uk I love working at this venue, with its close proximity to my base, great views over the Langstone harbour for photos and very helpful and supportive staff (Franco, Emily and the team).

The heavy rain made for indoor group photos and some options for photos with the couple outdoors between the puddles! This certainly didn't cause the FUN to be dampened at all. Josephine and Craig and their families were great to work with and we got a lovely collection of photos from the day.

Wedding photographer at Basingstoke Register Offices and Tylney Hall Hotel nr Hook in Hampshire.

Today I was at Basingstoke Register Offices and the fabulous Tynley Hall Hotel, Rotherwick near Hook in Hampshire. I was doing the wedding photography for Rachell and Stephen.
It was about the fifth time I covered a wedding at Basingstoke Register Offices and the staff were all very helpful to me. After the ceremony and despite the fact that there is attractive parkland adjacent to the Offices, we all headed off to the Tynley Hall Hotel. You can view the website of this Hotel with superb grounds via http://www.tylneyhall.co.uk/
Attached to my blog are a few of my favourite photos from the day. Tylney Hall is a fantastic location for a wedding, with a grand front entrance, staircase and numerous grand rooms and library, a massive private and well maintained garden. It makes it a great venue for relaxed and fun wedding photography.
The images will be available for viewing for Rachell and Stephen and their families soon. Attached are some of my favourites from this fab day.

Wedding photographer at the Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth, Hampshire

Today I was at the Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth. I was doing the wedding photography for Cathy and Paul and it was a great day.

After a mid afternoon ceremony and a few family in the main wedding room - we posed for some photos at various locations around the fab gardens at the Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth.

The space and gardens are fantastic and the staff are always helpful to me at the Brookfield Hotel too. I love working at the Brookfield Hotel and especially enjoy working with Jamie Drew and his colleagues. I left the hotel as the guests sat for their meal, so a short day for me.

All the images were available for viewing for Cathy and Paul and their families very quickly.

If YOU are getting married this year - especially if it is mid week or for a short duration booking - Please do get in touch and see what late availability, or special offers I might have available for YOU!
