Top 100 wedding photographers in the UK 2020

Award-Winning Wedding Photography Bristolaward winning wedding photographer bristol

A little bit of good news after being included in The Three Best Rated Photographers in Bristol (the third year in a row) at the start of the year, I also found out recently that I was named one of SLR Lounge Top 100 photographers of the UK in 2020!

This is a true honour and accolade; so awesome to be alongside so many brilliant photographers, quite a few whom I also know and have worked with! At the time of writing this, the UK is on lockdown because of Coronavirus, and that’s the only reason that I’m able to find time to put this blog together.

It fills me with huge pride that for 10 years now I have been producing work that not only my clients love, but that also appeals to people who were never at the wedding. Judges look at wedding photography completely differently from Brides and Grooms. Judges are looking for technical aspects that make a great photograph, whether that be composition, moment or light. So to appeal to both client and judge is something that I am very proud of and something that keeps my desire burning to constantly produce better images.

Take a look at the full list here and also the rigorous process they used to select everyone. Thanks so much, SLR Lounge. Below I put together some shots that won awards in various wedding photography competitions recently along with my latest Google review:

“Martin photographed our winter wedding at Coombe Lodge and did such an amazing job. He’s a nice guy and was very helpful in discussions leading up to the wedding. His wealth of experience in wedding photography was very apparent on the day and he was very thoughtful about letting us have quality time with our guests and knowing the best times to sneak us off for photos. We have just had the pictures back and are so pleased. We would recommend him to anyone getting married. Thank you, Martin!!” – Dave & Nancy
