Mark Ward - Photography & Film

Awardweddings photography & film, digital & analogue, separately or as a package

Description

We are a husband and wife team. Photography, film, planning, decorations and more. We are here to help you create and capture one of the biggest days of your life! We've got nearly 15 years planning, photographing and filming weddings. Still, every wedding and every couple is unique to us!

Multicultural and multilingual, we have travelled extensively and worked with couples from around the world. No job is too big or too small and we're tireless in our efforts to achieve the highest standards. Take us as a team or separately!

I love shooting, after all these years, I love the captures. When I'm working, I'm looking for the best shots and I'm doing everything I need to get them. Often that means being quiet and unnoticed, others it's helping people feel confident. I love mixing styles, using skills and technique, taking inspiration, using analogue films and digital, photo and video.

I was born in the analogue, a teen when digital found its feet, now, I love the spaces in-between.

The quality of light in the South of France is simply unbelievable and never more so than during Golden Hour, although, all the other shades are pretty amazing, too! You need to know the lay of the land and how the sun is going to fall; I've seen plenty of people miss these magic moments for various reasons, so living here is a must. I love capturing all the emotions of the big day and giving you a narrative of how it all unfolds and this special time just before sunset is a great way to let your hair down, just before you hit the dance floor and... let your hair down! I believe in natural shots, shot beautifully.

When I got married I, essentially, floated through the day in a bubble, (and with the benefit of hindsight, when I did make contact with the real world I had my priorities all mixed up!) Looking back through all our wedding photos helped me to truly enjoy what had happened and with whom I was lucky enough to share the big day; not to mention to see how Clémentine got through it all, too. As a photographer, I absolutely treasure the opportunity to give my couples the same priceless narratives. On the day, I shoot with a variety of lenses and look to both tell a story as well as capture singular moments. I don't arrive with preconceived styles or frames in mind. I respond to what's around me. People always ask what kind of photographer and I always see other photographers label themselves in a certain way; as a person, I've always resisted this kind of thing - maybe it's because I'm mixed race with influences from around the world? I couldn't decide on a subject at uni, so I did a half-field degree; I've been a teacher and now I'm freelance; I love playing rugby and can toot along on my trumpet; wedding photography is as important to me as wedding videography - in other words, the way I'm built, I've got the skills and the nature to shoot all your moments and hit the styles you prefer. Please, drop me a line, I'd love to chat with you about your wedding.

  • I don’t even know where to start! We just simply can’t recommend Clementine and Mark highly enough. We wanted a small, intimate wedding with just our closest family and friends, beyond that I didn’t really have much of a vision for what I wanted the day to look or feel like. Somehow in the conversations we had with Clementine she captured exactly the atmosphere we wanted. When we saw everything come together I was completely wowed by how it felt and how beautiful it looked. She had the perfect recommendations for other vendors and was so helpful and responsive when we questions. Planning a destination wedding definitely adds a layer of difficulty - we weren’t able to see our venue in person, or meet with other vendors (florist, caterer, etc) but the end result was everything we could have ever wanted, and that's entirely due to Clementine.

    And MARK! He just knew exactly what we needed on the day of our wedding. I was so touched by the care he took, and how comfortable he made everyone feel. One of the best parts of our reception was Mark taking photos of all the couples at the end of the night - totally impromptu, but so much fun and such a great memory to be able to share with all of our guests. He knew exactly how to capture all of the important details without intruding on the special moments, and made it clear throughout the day he was there for whatever we needed.

    I’m so glad we chose to work with Mark and Clementine. Our day was perfect and they were such a huge part of that. If you’re getting married anywhere in the south of France - you are in the very best hands with these two.

  • Wow, what a fantastic video. We really really love it! Thanks so much Mark. You’re a genius!

    Absolutely incredible! The shots are insane, the music is perfect, the flow, everything! You really are an editing genius. We could not be happier -- thank you so so much. We're heading off on our honeymoon, what a way to kick it off. How lucky we are to have had such a beautiful wedding thanks to Clementine and to capture it all forever, thanks to you. Guys, you're the best!
