As a Wedding Photographer, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and the surrounding counties provide a beautiful backdrop to my work, and I have photographed at many of the finest wedding venues in Nottingham, Derby and other locations all over the UK. Being a Lifestyle documentary wedding and portrait photographer, my approach to wedding and family portrait photography are very similar. I won’t tell you what to do, where to go or how to stand. I will certainly not tell you to smile unwillingly. That’s because I love to photograph “real” moments, and that means letting you be who you really are. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I like to tell the story as it happened. It would be a shame to interrupt that. So you can relax and be yourselves while you’re with me. That’s how I work. Read more about me here.
Your wedding day should be a day about you and your partner, sharing the most important day of your lives together with family and friends.
I will be there every step of the way from the nervous getting ready moments, the “I do” moments all the way through to the “let’s dance the night away” moments. I will document these truly special times for you to look back on and cherish forever.
I will create the most beautiful wedding album for you to pass down to generations to come.
I will remain professional, trustworthy and reliable from our first meeting until the final delivery of your wedding images and forever after.
It’s a true honour to be part of each and every wedding I photograph.
Thank you so much for photographing our wedding on 1st June. We had the most magical day and your role in capturing that was incredible. We loved seeing the photos in the online gallery and then to receive the photos on the memory stick in the beautiful package was wonderful. You captured the mood, atmosphere and overwhelming sense of love we remember of our day. You have provided a journey of our day, from the emotions of getting ready, to the ceremony and to the super relaxed afternoon in the sunshine. We are so glad we asked you to photograph our special day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you, you were a pleasure to have there on our day.

We really cannot speak highly enough of Mamad and his photography. We weren’t going to have an official photographer at all for our wedding since neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera. However, when we stumbled across the twig and vine website and saw his more natural approach to wedding photography, we just knew we had to meet the person behind the camera. Within moments of first meeting Mamad we were not only stunned by his beautiful photos, but also warmed by what a thoroughly lovely person he is! Mamad understood exactly how we wanted the day captured and completely empathised with our reluctance to pose for photos we were extremely thankful that Mamad offered to do a engagement shoot, it really did make us feel more comfortable. On the day Mamad was an absolute pleasure to have around. The guests all loved him and he managed to beautifully capture the essence of the day without us even noticing the shots being taken. Needless to say, we would highly recommend Twig and Vine photography to anyone wishing to have their special day captured on camera. Mamad has truly given us some beautiful photographs to remember our perfect day forever.

Mamad was the most fantastic photographer and captured our day perfectly! Such an amazing addition to the day and images to treasure for the rest of our lives! As two people who don't really like being photographed, Mamad made us feel so comfortable and most importantly relaxed! Thank you just isn't a big enough word! If you're going to make sure you get one thing for your wedding make it Twig&Vine!

Where to begin! We were delighted with our wedding photographs from Mamad. His style is unobtrusive, elegant and relaxed, and his images captured our day perfectly. Mamad is professional and calm, and we knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding from our first meeting. Our engagement shoot really helped us become comfortable in front of the camera, and this meant we were relaxed on the big day itself. Myself and my husband could not recommend Twig & Vine Photography enough. Thank you!
