creative wedding suppliers staffordshire

Hello…I’m Ian France and I am a Wedding Photographer in Staffordshire, and thank you for looking at my website… Weddings are photographed exclusively by myself, and coverage is usually a subtle mix of photo journalism and artistic / creative wedding photography. I have a “no cheese” policy but we do have some fun along the way. The feedback I get most frequently is that I made everyone feel so comfortable, and blended into the wedding as much as was feasible. The single most important thing I pride myself on is being able to use creativity to make your wedding photography personal to you while capturing the story of the day. Art has always been a passion so I always try to present something stunning for your wall at home by constantly experimenting with new techniques, ideas and magic. As well as shooting weddings in Staffordshire I’ve also recently travelled to New York & Ibiza to shoot destination weddings, so if you are getting married abroad then get in touch. Above all the wedding photography menu says one thing “Customer Satisfaction” and you will not find the same blend of quality, creativity and personality anywhere else.. Now although I’m very modest and would never agree openly, some people say that I am Staffordshire’s best Wedding Photographer ( blush ), I just say that my job is awesome, and am indeed very fortunate to earn a living photographing nuptials, its something I enjoy so much…. I guess that energy shines through every time I pick up a camera.

Natural Wedding Photography

My approach is based totally towards your comfort, even the wedding images that are choreographed will look and feel natural. Nothing is forced or over the top and the best photos come when we least expect it, not only from a documentary point of view, but also from a creative photography perspective.

Creative Wedding Photography

Nothing is pre-conceived and I don’t copy other wedding photographers, just genuine creativity for each and every Bride & Groom’s special day. Your photographs are a unique to you, your wedding and your wedding venue. I pride myself on delivering something different for each of my awesome wedding clients.

Quality Wedding Albums


When it comes to viewing your wedding photographs, nothing can beat physically holding a beautiful wedding album. Whilst many wedding photographers will now offer digital only photography packages, we believe this may not be the most sensible option … read more about album prices here

featured staffordshire weddings

Having a Wedding is a big decision, all the planning, the dress the flowers and of course the per-nuptial tension. We’ve had the pleasure of being chosen to shoot many weddings all over the world and also at local staffordshire venues. Our Wedding Portfolio is a good starting point to see a huge selection of shots from hundreds of marriages in the county, but also internationally….I am the recommended supplier at lots of Staffordshire venues and frequently shoot at Country Houses and Hotels such as The Moat House, Pendrell Hall, Moxhull Hall and Swinfen to name a few. I also find barn wedding venues like Packington Farm and Shustoke Barn great rural places for weddings. And of course anywhere on my bucket list. You are welcome to visit my studio on the edge of Cannock Chase in Staffordshire to view some full wedding albums, but to if you prefer you can see a few featured weddings and venues below. Thanks to all my awesome couples for allowing me to feature their special day, its a team effort and I really couldn’t do it without you.
