Hampshire Wedding Photographer - Martin Lewis LMPA


This is the blog of Martin Lewis Photographer - an experienced full time wedding and commercial photographer, based in Hampshire. Whether you are looking for high quality, yet realistically priced wedding photography in Hampshire, or a commercial or event photographer in West Sussex, or much of Southern England, 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 security checked 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 My website

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 the Alverbank Country House Hotel in Stokes Bay near Gosport

Today I attended the wedding of Claire and Mat at the Alverbnank Country House Hotel, in Stokes Bay near Gosport and Lee on the Solent.

After the ceremony we captured a few group photos in the grounds of the hotel. We also took some photos in the adjacvent park and later we went to the beach too. It was a bight, sunny and breezy day as you can see in the photos. 

I simply use this blog to showcase a small sample of ALL 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. Attached to my blog are just a few of my favourite photos from this day. The images were available for viewing for the couple, their family and friends very soon after the day.

I have a very busy summer this year, with bookings flooding in for summer 2019 and 20 too - but some availability exists for key dates in the coming Autumn and Winter, especially. If you are looking for an affordable service, yet high standard photography - please do get in touch to see if I am free and might be able to help you too. I can offer some good discounts to people who are still looking to book for this year, at the moment.

Please check out my website mid week 'special offers' too!

Wedding Photographer at Portsmouth Register Offices in Burnaby Road, Portsmouth

Today I was at Portsmouth Register Offices. I was doing the wedding photography for Shirley and Phil and it was a great day, with a small family group attending (around 30 people).

After a 11.30am ceremony and a few family shots on the stair case - we posed for some photos at various locations around the Register Offices before the couple headed off to Old Portsmouth and the HotWalls for some more photos and then onwards to the Still and West for an afternoon reception and meal.

The Portsmouth Register Offices is one of my favourite Register Offices to cover, as the space and gardens are fantastic and the staff are always helpful to me too.

All the images were available for viewing for Shirley and Phil and their families very quickly.

Wedding photographer at HMS Warrior in Portsmouth

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

The ceremony was great to photograph and was at 5.15pm on the Half Deck. We had a great day at this venue and we were very lucky to get great weather conditions - for some good opportunities for photos around the ship.

The website of HMS Warrior is here: www.hmswarrior.org and I always enjoy working with the staff here and particularly new colleagues Roxy and Hayley who now coordinate their events and weddings.

If you are holding a short (half day or maybe a few hours) wedding ceremony or special event - please do get in touch and check my availability and see what I may be able to offer YOU. There are still some key summer dates free for 2018 at the time of writing this text. Please do get in touch.

Wedding photographer at the Tithe Barn near South Harting and Petersfield.

Chernice and Damiens wedding was at The Tithe Barn near South Harting and Petersfield.

This visit to The Tithe Barn was my second this year and is a fantastic location for me. A Grade II listed building - the Tithe Barn is a wedding photographers and guests dream as it is located in private and secluded land on a rural estate near South Harting in the South Downs and also near Petersfield. It is a complex of flint stoned walled buildings located in the beautiful rural Hampshire countryside. The website of the Tithe Barn is here www.tithe-barn.co.uk

I was on site for the duration of the day and left only after the first dance. The images were available for viewing for Chernice and Damien and their families very soon. A couple of my favourites are displayed here. There was also a fantastic Camper Van which Damien arrived in and this was supplied by Vinnies Vintage Vehicles.

Music and entertainment was by good friend DJ Ashley Riggs

Lastly Brian of Wright Choice Catering was feeding the guests plus one photographer and they did a fantastic job as usual. Thank you Brian.   


I will continue to list a few taster photos from each wedding I attend. I still have some good availability going through this year (including a few key Saturdays in the summer for example) and I am now offering great prices and options for remaining dates and ultra affordable mid week options. Please do get in touch if this interests you at all and I am taking bokings now for summer 2019 so pleaese dont delay if you are thinking of booking ahead. It does make good sense all round.

Today I was covering a wedding at St Marys in the grounds of Portchester Castle in Hampshire – I was doing the wedding photography for Heather and Keith. Portchester is a great local location for wedding photos and St Marys is very popular for this reason too.

We were lucky to get fantastic weather conditions, rounding off a great April for weather - for some great opportunities for photos around Portchester Castle in an April heat wave no less.

The images will be available for viewing for Heather and Keith and their families very soon. Just a few samples are shown here to give you an idea of the day and the beauty of this location.
