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 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.

Wedding photographer at HMS Warrior in Portsmouth, Hampshire

Today was a local wedding at HMS Warrior in the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth. I was doing the wedding photography for Emma and Oli.


The ceremony was good to photograph and was on the Half Deck. We had a great day at this venue and we got some great opportunities for photos around the ship. Shortly after the wedding ceremony we captured some family, group and other photos, before heading down below for a meal and evening reception. The website of HMS Warrior is here: www.hmswarrior.org and I always enjoy working with the staff here and particularly Hannah, Emma and Julie who coordinate their events and weddings.

Wedding photographer at the Harbour Hotel, Christchurch in Dorset.

Today I was doing the wedding photography for Serraphina and Joshua. I was at the Harbour Hotel and Spa, Christchurch in Dorset.It was a fun day, with very bright light (most of the weddings I photrographed to date in April have been very sunny days) and a small group of mainly family as guests.

I use this blog to showcase a small sample of my on-going and full time photographic work. So you’ll see a lot more photos and work than words and thoughts on my blog. Hopefully, you’ll like what you see. Over the summer months I focus on getting a small selection of photos from each event live, rather than writing lots of text!

Attached to my blog are a few of my favourite photos from this day. I captured a good selection of images over the course of this day and usually present say 250 - 400+ 'High Res' images to each couple. The images were available for viewing very soon after the day.

For any remaining 2017 dates, I can offer some truly affordable options, with preferential rates on my wedding photography and particularly for small or shorter wedding bookings. So if that interests YOU at all - please do feel free to get in touch and check out my availability and see what options I may be able to offer you too.
