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 Christ the King and St Colman R.C. church in Southampton and the Tithe Barn near to Petersfield and South Harting.

Martha and Marks wedding ceremony was at 11.30 at Christ the King and St Colmans RC church in Southampton and the reception was at The Tithe Barn near Petersfield.

This visit to The Tithe Barn was a fantastic opportunity for me. A Grade II listed building - the Tithe Barn is a wedding photographers and guests dream as it is located in private 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

I was on site for the duration of the day and left only after the first dance. The images were available for viewing for Martha and Mark and their families very soon. A couple of my favourites are displayed here. There was also a magician called Stephen Simons who I captured some images of at work.

Lastly Brian of Wright Choice Catering was feeding the 150 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 availability going through this year 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 the Langrish House Hotel near Petersfield in Hampshire

I had a fantastic time attending the Langrish House Hotel for a wedding today. I was doing the wedding photography for Becky and Chris and their families it was a FUN and relaxed day.

Langrish is a fantastic Manor House with superb gardens for wedding photography and is near Petersfield in Hampshire I have covered a number of weddings and receptions here previously and I wish to thank Robina and her team who always help me and do a fab job also. I also advertised in their wedding brochure and the hotel holds one sample album containing images I captured at previous Langrish House weddings. This can be seen in their amazing new lounge area which is adjacent to the reception foyer.

I had a challenging day owing to the rainy weather - but a fantastic time working with Becky and Chris and their families.

I realise that many couples visiting will be getting married at other local churches and venues and I am pleased to say that the Hotel is close to home and so I have good experience of many of the great venues and other locations for photography in our locality. You can see the website for Langrish House here: or via Facebook here:

Wedding photographer at the Lythe Hill Hotel and Spa near Haslemere in Surrey.

Today was a wedding at the Lythe Hill Hotel near Haslemere in Surrey with Susie and Andy and the hotel and spa was an idyllic setting for wedding photography. The main house dates back to a 14th Century beamed Tudor House and it provided a great backdrop for photos. After the ceremony and some family photos, photos with the couple and a good slot of time in dry weather and good light, everyone retreated back indoors for an evening of entertainment and for a fantastic meal. It was a great day to photograph and I was working with the couple from around midday until first dance at around 8pm.

I also met my good friend and DJ - DJ Joe Smith who was working in the evening at the party. I have uploaded just a few images here from the day and will be simply showcasing just a few images from each wedding as I usually do and rather than trying to tell the 'whole story'. I enjoyed working at Lythe Hill, with fabulous gardens, a lake and fountain and grounds for photos and very helpful and supportive staff. Nicole at the Lythe Hill Hotel was particularly helpful to me on the day.

I am currently offering some very good rates for any remaing 2018 dates and into the early New Year, subject to my availability. Whether it be a wedding, party or other special occasion, I can offer you something different and creative, yet reliable and professional! So, I look forward to possibly helping YOU too.
