I love weddings....it really is that simple!!
I caught the bug when, as a camera-obsessed 15-year-old, I took a job carrying a wedding photographer’s bags. And despite being loaded down with equipment, I fell in love with the buzz, the energy, the excitement and the romance. All these years later (carrying my own bags) it’s still a huge thrill for me to play a small part in your biggest day – and help to make it just perfect.
All those years of experience have taught me that the key to achieving exceptional wedding photography is knowing what you want from your photographer. No two couples are the same and each will have different ideas about how it's all going to come together. Understanding those wants and needs is how I will capture the perfect wedding photographs for you.
It's a genuine pleasure loving what you do for a living – and to know that my clients love what I do too is the best reward. Please take a look at some feedback by clicking on the reviews.
"Capturing memories to last a lifetime"
Ian photographed our wedding in 2012. A friend had recommended him to us and, when we saw how beautiful her album of pictures was, we didn't hesitate to contact him. From our first contact with Ian and our first meeting where he showed us samples and put us completely at ease, to our big day where he made our snapshots into treasured lifetime memories, Ian went above and beyond and we thought of him more as a friend than our photographer by the end of our wedding.
On the morning of our wedding I tell you he was right up there with my bridesmaids for keeping me calm!
Ian shows a genuine interest in who people are and what they want out of their pictures on the big day and tailors his services to suit.
He is a very talented, creative and hardworking photographer - able to get the very best out of everyone in a setting without making things look staged, and with a real knack for capturing the fleeting and gorgeous moments that you thought you might only remember from the snapshots in your mind.
We look back on our pictures with such fondness - every single shot makes us smile, every time.
If you choose Ian, I guarantee you will never regret it - on the contrary, when that album arrives and you see the magic he has captured, you'll be over the moon - and those photos will see you through... forever.

Ian made our wedding just perfect, he captured some amazing moments and without his beautiful pictures these moment would have been forgotten. Totally professional and a delight to have around, I can't recommend enough. We also called on Ian to take photos of our new family member George which are just gorgeous. Our house is full of Scarlet Ribbon pictures and I can't wait to fill it with more when number 2 arrives! X

Choosing our wedding photographer was one of the most important decisions that we made regarding our day, and thanks to Ian it was the by far the easiest. He's just brilliant at what he does and I never tire of recommending Scarlet Ribbon. He is a true professional and completely reliable and yet he manages to accomplish what so many others don't, in that he is approachable, really listens and effortlessly becomes a welcome addition to your wedding party.
Put simply, he delivers stunning photographs when it really matters, and he is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Ian took all the photos at our wedding and they were fantastic. I can't recommend him enough. He was really calming and professional. He knew how to deal with the rowdy crowd that were our family and get some lovely natural photographs of us enjoying the best day of our lives!

Can't really even describe how pleased we were to have Ian as our wedding photographer. He fit in so well with the whole day, put the guests at ease in front of a camera and made everything stress free. Afterwards so many people commented to us on how fantastic he was. He just does an absolutely incredible job - which doesn't end when he leaves the wedding. He helped us put together some incredible photo books for family members and helped my husband put together a gift for me of one of my favorite shots of the day. Honestly can't recommend highly enough. Thanks Ian!

Ian, we'd just like to say a HUGE thank you for being our Wedding photographer! Everybody said how friendly and professional you were! You went to extremes with effort including climbing out of a window and onto a roof and the shots are stunning! Especially the photo of John and I with the Bentley on Ilkley Moor! Thank you again!
Caroline and John
Ian photographed our wedding after being recommended to us by several people. He did a great pre-wedding shoot in some great quirky places. On the day he was brilliant, everyone one loved him as he was so friendly, he made everyone feel at ease and made everyone laugh. Very professional, polite and all round lovely guy. The pictures were amazing with hundreds to choose from and loads of different albums available. We would always and have already recommended him to lots of other people.
Danielle and Chris
Ian, we can't thank you enough for being our wedding photographer. You made us feel relaxed throughout the day and your positive attitude and (very sharp) sense of humour promoted a great atmosphere. It was a real pleasure to have you there on the day as a friend and photographer.
We are delighted with the variety of high quality photographs, you really captured the day in all its glory! We have enjoyed sharing the photographs with family and friends, the feedback has been unanimously positive. It’s safe to say the photographs are a real hit!
Thank you for capturing moments we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
We highly recommend Ian to all our friends and family, great guy and brilliant photographer.

Ian did an amazing job: from start to finish he has been fantastic. He was such a pleasure to have around on our wedding day and it was just like having an extra (and very talented!) guest; he fitted in so well and was not in the least bit intrusive. What is more, the quality and range of the photographs that he has taken are fantastic. He has captured the wedding so well and we have enjoyed re-living the day through his vibrant and fabulous pictures. Everyone has commented on the breadth and quality of the photographs that Ian has taken. His pre-wedding shoot was also invaluable – and we enjoyed that very much. We cannot recommend him highly enough and are so glad that we found him!

I've always known Ian was a talented photographer but Ed & I were both bowled over by his professionalism, skills & energy he brought to our wedding day (& his planning beforehand too). He perfectly captured the happiness & excitement of the day & even made Ed feel comfortable in front of the camera! We can't thank him enough or recommend him highly enough.

When it comes to pricing - well I work a little differently to many other photographers. There are no set packages as no two weddings are the same.
Drop me a line to tell me all about your wedding day and we can arrange to meet or to chat with no obligations at all. and I can talk you through all the options available to you.
