emotive, elegant documentary wedding photography

I’m Dorset Wedding Photographer Belinda McCarthy, photographing weddings in Dorset, Somerset, throughout the UK and into Europe. I specialise in a highly unobtrusive & cinematic documentary photography approach, also known as reportage or photojournalism.

If you love wonderful images and are passionate about your wedding being documented in the most beautiful & discreet manner, you’ve come to the right place.


beautiful photography : less interference.

show-stopping images, whilst capturing all the emotion.

I’m a full-time wedding photographer and I’ve worked in the wedding industry for over ten years. I photograph beautiful weddings in Dorset, Somerset & across the UK, as well as destination weddings in Europe.

I’ve photographed many gorgeous weddings, from grand country house celebrations to informal country weddings in fields. Every wedding day is beautiful, every love story is wonderful, & it’s my job as wedding photographer to document your amazing day with truth and beauty.

With timeless & emotive documentary wedding photography, we’ll create an amazing record of the most important day of your lives. And, as I use the highest quality photographic and lighting equipment, you’ll have stunning images to treasure no matter what the weather.

Well I have just woken up and oh my god…..oh my god…..oh my god……I have just relived the most special and amazing day of mine and Daniel’s lives and I may be welling up as I write this! You have managed to capture the joy the last ten years have brought us and the wonder and excitement that the next ten will bring!
