Mark Nortcliffe Photography
Cambridge Wedding Photographer
A lifelong passion
Hello I’m Mark and I am a Cambridge Wedding Photographer based in Girton Cambridgeshire. My passion for photography appears to have always been with me. Sometimes to a lesser degree but never as evident as it is today. Temporarily putting my camera down for a few years while I focussed on my retail career was at the time the right thing to do. Rekindling my relationship and diving back into photography was the best decision I ever made. Well second to falling in love and getting married.
For as long as I can remember I have always owned a camera. I’ve always loved the endless enjoyment photographs can bring not just today but the memories they create that live with us for years to come. Times change of course but the fact that through imagery we can preserve moments in time is just so amazing. With the introduction of digital photography, consumer SLRs and mobile phones we are all photographers. I love that as we are all history makers preserving a little of today for all our tomorrows.
I’m sure you would like to know a little more about my photography style but if you are interested to hear a little more about me then please check out my About Me page.
Your Wedding Day
My style of photography is relaxed, fun and unobtrusive. A hybrid of photojournalism and formal which means I will be on hand to capture many of the candid moments throughout your day that you may otherwise miss. Watch and record the celebrations as the day unfolds, the emotions and the laughter. With all of that I will include a mixture of ‘formal’ shots that will adorn the homes of parents across the land and that still have a place at every wedding day and then of course steal you away from your guests for a short time for a romantic couple shoot. From bridal prep to first dance and beyond.
Please check out my Wedding portfolio to better acquaint yourself with my individual style.
I have covered various types of wedding ceremonies from church weddings, civil ceremonies, Hindu weddings and same sex marriages. From iconic London city landmarks, Cambridge colleges and stately homes to small boutique hotels, no two weddings are ever the same. Your wedding day should be as individual as you are!
If you want to sit down and discuss your plans I offer a no obligation consultation meeting at my studio in Girton or if more convenient somewhere nearer to you. You can call, mail or contact me via my Contact page.
I would love to hear from you so please do get in touch.
Choosing your Cambridge Wedding Photographer
Your wedding day is a major event in your life’s journey, an event that is shared with those that have played an important part in your life and who cares about you the most. So with the same emphasis that has been placed on the day itself, ensuring the memories are preserved and treasured dearly for generations to come, finding the right wedding photographer is paramount.
Finding a photographer that cares as much about your day as you do and who will be willing to help and advise along the way is not an unrealistic ask. Let me be that photographer and help you by taking away some of the stresses of planning and by capturing the happy and intimate moments of your wedding day.
Every wedding is unique and varied whether a civil ceremony, church wedding or a same sex marriage and I have been fortunate enough to be asked to cover them all. The one over riding factor is the unity and love between two people.
Telling your story
As humans we are marvellous complex beings with minds that can store and recall many stories from the past. But we can only recall the stories from our own perspective, from the events that we are witness to or played a part in, and sometimes that’s OK. But at times we are involved in events where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, where so much is happening that we fail to see the wider picture.
Your wedding day is one such event and one of the most important days of your life. Let me be the one to tell your story of events as they unfold. Liken your wedding day to a jigsaw puzzle, there are so many pieces that make up the whole picture. Imagine the disappointment when you get to the end and find one little piece missing.
I am a photojournalistic and documentary style wedding photographer. I will record key moments as they happen so they are not missed and preserved years to come.
I will bring a sense of calmness to the proceedings and install confidence in you and your guests. My unobtrusive style is relaxed and informal and will put even the most camera shy person at ease. My energy and passion to make your wedding day special will be apparent from the very first time we meet. Read my Reviews here to see what my previous couples have to say.
