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 Royal Bath Hotel in Bournemouth.

Today I was at The Royal Bath Hotel in Bournemouth. I was doing the wedding photography for Victoria and Sean.
After the ceremony the couple headed off for a quick photo session with their wedding car. We then greeted them back and posed for some photos at various locations around the grounds, before the couple and their guests had a meal and an evening of celebrations.
I enjoyed working at this Hotel for my third time and especially with their weddings and other events staff. 

The images will be available for viewing for Victoria and Sean and their families very soon.
I am presently running some special offers for short duration (say two or three hours) wedding photography packages and have some special mid week arrangements too - so if this appeals to you then please do get in touch to check my availability and to see what I may be able to offer you too!

Wedding photographer at the Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch, Dorset


Today I was at the Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch. I was doing the wedding photography for Kitty and Scott and they were lovely to work with. After the ceremony which was in the Pavillion and a few family shots in the attractive gardens - we all returned to 'The Kings Priory' which is an exclusive area of the Hotel for an afternoon and evening of entertainment.

Owing to a high work load during August I am just putting a few concise details and of course some of my favourite shots from each wedding alongside the text. Once updated I will keep it up to date for the rest of the year!

All the images were quickly available for viewing for Kitty and Scott and their families, but just a few favourites are shown here.

Wedding photographer at Great Fosters in Egham, Surry

Today I was at Great Fosters Hotel, at Egham in Surrey. I was doing the wedding photography for Amy and Peter and they were fab to work with.
After a short ceremony, we all headed out to the amazing landscaped gardens, for an afternoon of photos, a wedding breakfast and celebrations into the night. You can see the website of the fab Great Fosters Hotel here: www.greatfosters.co.uk
I hadn’t attended the venue previously, apart from when I met the couple to plan their photography and with around one month to go. It has incredible grounds with a small bridge over water, various ponds and formal gardens and some tree lined avenues and archways.
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 Surrey.
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Great Fosters and got on very well with the wedding coordinator and colleagues who were all very helpful to me.
The images will be available for viewing for Amy and Peter and their families very soon. Attached are just a few taster ones to show you a little of the detail of the day.

Wedding photographer at the St John the Baptist church in Westbourne near Emsworth and at the Sailing Club on Thorney Island Army base.

Today I was at two different venues, including St John the Baptist church in Westbourne, Emsworth harbour and the Sailing Club on the Thorney Island Army base - all within a stones throw of where I live in Emsworth. I was doing the wedding photography for Jess and Alan and we had a great day. After the ceremony and a few family shots at church - we went onto Thorney Island for some shots of the couple by the water, before a reception at the Sailing Club on Thorney Island and adjacent to the Emsworth harbour.
Owing to a high work load during the summer, I will continue to put just a few concise details and of course some of my favourite and perhaps more ceative or unusual shots from each wedding alongside the text. I will be updating my blog over the next few days and will try and keep it up to date for the rest of the year. Typically, I just offer a taster of my favourites and they are invariably some B&W or toned images.
All the images were quickly available for viewing for Jess and Alan and their family an dfriends, but just a few favourites are shown here.
