About me – An Alternative Wedding Photographer

Alternative Wedding Photographer Rob


I’m Rob. An Alternative Wedding Photographer.

I live in North Yorkshire in a little fishing village called Whitby, most know it as an idyllic holiday destination and a connection to Dracula and its famous Abbey.

As well as being and Alternative Wedding Photographer I sometimes venture out of Whitby to the big city to photograph live bands, bands I like.

I hang around with my wife a lot, she is my best friend.

Ellie is an alternative wedding celebrant and we love to work together. Me capturing the images of a couples wedding adventure, and Ellie writing a delivering personal bespoke wedding ceremonies. We love to work with couples with similar interests.

My favoured things (other than my wife and family) are live and alternative music, dark ales, my dog, tea, Star Wars, art (I like painting) and my iPhone, I love the fact it can take a picture and fits in my pocket.

I am an Alternative Wedding Photographer in Whitby, but you will find me capturing weddings all over the UK.

Music, live bands and Star Wars

As well as being an alternative wedding photographer, I love music and live bands, the alternative type. You can find me in the crowd at a Killing Joke gig, sometimes in the pit photographing the PIL or photographing bands at Whitby Goth Festival. I sometimes DJ, when I’m asked. I play stuff I like and makes you dance. 80’s 90’s alternative with rock ‘a’ billy thrown in. I listen to a lot of music when working at home.

Although I love Star Wars, episodes 1,2 and 3 should be sent into space and never spoke about again. Big up for JJ Abrahams who brought balance to the force. (additional, Episodes 8 and 9 also need to be buried near to the earths core) Oh, and the best trilogy ever isn’t Star Wars it’s Back to the future.

We moved to Yorkshire a few years ago from the Midlands after spending most of our time, holidays and work in Whitby and the surrounding areas. I love this place.

I celebrate people who don’t follow the norm.
