Hampshire Wedding Photographer - Martin Lewis LMPA


This is the blog of Martin Lewis Photographer - an experienced full time wedding and commercial photographer, based in Hampshire. Whether you are looking for high quality, yet realistically priced wedding photography in Hampshire, or a commercial or event photographer in West Sussex, or much of Southern England, 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 security checked 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 My website

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 Tithe Barn near South Harting and Petersfield.

Chernice and Damiens wedding was at The Tithe Barn near South Harting and Petersfield.

This visit to The Tithe Barn was my second this year and is a fantastic location for me. A Grade II listed building - the Tithe Barn is a wedding photographers and guests dream as it is located in private and secluded land on a rural estate near South Harting in the South Downs and also near Petersfield. It is a complex of flint stoned walled buildings located in the beautiful rural Hampshire countryside. The website of the Tithe Barn is here www.tithe-barn.co.uk

I was on site for the duration of the day and left only after the first dance. The images were available for viewing for Chernice and Damien and their families very soon. A couple of my favourites are displayed here. There was also a fantastic Camper Van which Damien arrived in and this was supplied by Vinnies Vintage Vehicles.

Music and entertainment was by good friend DJ Ashley Riggs

Lastly Brian of Wright Choice Catering was feeding the guests plus one photographer and they did a fantastic job as usual. Thank you Brian.   


I will continue to list a few taster photos from each wedding I attend. I still have some good availability going through this year (including a few key Saturdays in the summer for example) and I am now offering great prices and options for remaining dates and ultra affordable mid week options. Please do get in touch if this interests you at all and I am taking bokings now for summer 2019 so pleaese dont delay if you are thinking of booking ahead. It does make good sense all round.

Wedding photographer at St Marys in Portchester Castle grounds in Hampshire

Today I was covering a wedding at St Marys in the grounds of Portchester Castle in Hampshire – I was doing the wedding photography for Heather and Keith. Portchester is a great local location for wedding photos and St Marys is very popular for this reason too.

We were lucky to get fantastic weather conditions, rounding off a great April for weather - for some great opportunities for photos around Portchester Castle in an April heat wave no less.

The images will be available for viewing for Heather and Keith and their families very soon. Just a few samples are shown here to give you an idea of the day and the beauty of this location.

Wedding photographer at Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire

Today I was covering a wedding at a truly unique and new venue for me – I was doing the wedding photography for Melinda and Martin at Larmer Tree Gardens, Rushmore Estate, Tollard Royal, Salisbury, Wiltshire. It was a 2pm ceremony, although I arrived early to have a good scout around and familiarize myself with this fantastic location for any wedding. Larmer Tree Gardens was created in 1880 by General Pitt Rivers as pleasure grounds ‘for public enlightenment and entertainment’. The gardens are today an extraordinary collection of ornate buildings, colour, landscaped areas, trees and garden structures. I have photographed one other wedding at Larmer Tree and it is quite simply a photographer’s paradise.

You can view the website of the venue here: http://www.larmertree.co.uk/ and you can get more details from the Wedding Co-ordinator who was very helpful to me and supported and advised us all throughout the whole day. Gail Thomas is on 01725 516971 should you wish to make contact with her.
The ceremony took place indoors today. We were lucky to get fantastic weather conditions, rounding off a great April for weather - for some great opportunities for photos around the gardens.
The images will be available for viewing for Melinda and Martin and their families very soon. Just a few samples are shown here to give you an idea of the beauty of this location and fantastic wedding I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph.

Wedding photographr at the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel.

Today I was doing the photography for a couple who married mid week on Monday 12th March at The Portsmouth Marriott Hotel in Southampton Road Portsmouth.
I will usually simply showcase just a few taster images from each wedding for the rest of this busy year, rather than trying to tell the 'whole story'. So I have uploaded just a few images here from their day.
I am currently offering some very good rates and discounts for any remaing 2018 dates and especially mid week when I offer extremely good value options, subject to my availability. So I look forward to possibly helping you too. So please feel free to get in touch.
