Ian Hamilton

Documentary wedding photographer based in Ringwood, photographing weddings in
Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex and Wiltshire




I’ve been photographing weddings for over 25 years.


I have to admit that I hate having my photo taken, so I know how most people feel on their wedding day!

I know how daunting it can be on your special day.


Family and friends all wanting your attention. Being asked to smile, turn this way and that.

My style of wedding photography’s evolved over the years.


From my experience of dealing with wedding couples and also from my experience of life.

I want your wedding to be filled with fun and laughter.


A day that you will remember for the rest of your lives.

I want you to enjoy your wedding day - that's why my style of wedding photography is unobtrusive.

I capture the smiles, the laughter (and the tears) - moments that you won't be aware of until you see your photographs.

I know that it's also important to have a few formal photographs, not only of yourselves, but of family members.


That is why I'll work with you before the wedding to make sure that the formal photographs are done in the shortest amount of time possible, which means that you have more time in which to enjoy yourselves.
