My focus is on capturing the emotion and excitement of your wedding day, as it unfolds through a contemporary creative style of wedding photography that will set your images apart from the rest.
For over 15 years I’ve had the privilege of photographing weddings for couples far and wide across the UK, Ireland and Europe. Internationally acclaimed for the creative style of my reportage wedding photography, I’ve recently had the honour of being flown out to the beautiful island of Capri Italy, for a destination wedding..
As an experienced wedding photographer based in Cheshire, I’m really skilled in shooting photography that’s a little different to the rest. In contrast to the ‘traditional staged’ approach, I’m sought after for my contemporary wedding photography and creative style – taking a fresh approach to each and every wedding I photograph. I won't get in your way and you can get on with enjoying your wedding day .. As it should be ..
Our pictures of our wedding day were amazing thanks to Carlton and his wife. We couldn't of asked for a better team to take our pictures, professional and fun at the same time .

I've known Carlton for over 15 years through his stylish work in the Advertising industry. So when it came to shooting our big day, he was my go-to guy. It's a crucial job, to capture such a one-time event and I'm sure the pressure was on, but the guy's a pro. Not only does he have a great eye and the right gear, it's more his understanding of being in the right place at the right time, to get those moments between the shots, that's often so difficult. The fact that he has fashion industry smarts, as well as extensive experience in-front as well as behind the lens, really gives him the edge. Bloody nice bloke, too. Highly recommended. More...
From the moment I met Carlton I knew he was the photographer that was going to capture our wedding day perfectly.
He listened to what we had in mind, and had the experience to guide us on the day to capture some of the most stunning photographs. Pictures I keep looking over again and again.
From someone who isn’t very confident in front of the camera, Carlton made it so easy to enjoy every second of being photographed.
Highly recommend him, you only have to look at his Instagram and Facebook page to see how talented he is. More...
Was talking with him regarding prices, since I’m also a photographer, thanks.

So excited to see the pictures from our special day. Carlton made us feel so relaxed and he has the patience of a saint! Great guy and great pictures!
Carlton is ridiculously professional!... A beautiful person to be around, and more importantly takes superb relaxed photos!... He really does deserve his incredible status in the photography world!... Well done mate � More...
Carlton photographed our Wedding and I cannot fault him, from our first meeting he made us feel totally at ease and was full of enthusiasm. On the day he was there through every step from getting ready right through to the first dance. He took so many amazing shots and he totally captured the magic of the day! More...
Carlton photographed our Wedding last September and did a fantastic job. He was so professional and put myself and our guests at ease. He was there throughout our day, every step of the way, and we were over the moon with the photographs, he captured the emotion of our special day exceptionally, we can’t thank him enough. More...
From the moment we met Carlton, we felt relaxed and at ease with him due to his laid back persona. His relaxed personality does not affect the level of effort and commitment he puts into his work tho - he works so incredibly hard and gives it his all. His warm personality meant that even our incredibly shy/timid twins would smile and pose for him!
We particularly liked his natural photographic style and he was also more than happy to do the obligatory staged shots for our wedding day also. Not once did we feel he was an intrusion during the 'getting ready' periods - he felt a part of the wedding party.
Carlton had never been to our venue before but arrived early to peruse it and familiarise himself with the ideal places for great shots.
He is very flexible and therefore tailor made our photographic package to suit our requirements.
We got many excellent photos from our special day and will treasure them forever. We liked the fact his work is not heavily edited because he has a true artistic eye for photography .
You can't go wrong with Carlton Adkins as your photographer - just make him take a selfie with you (it's amusing). I highly recommend him. Thanks again Carlton, Jen and Ian Gabbott More...
Big thanks from Minoti for the recent photoshoot ... we loved the photos and cant wait to get it all on our new website and shown off. Brilliant job!!
