Michael Newington Gray Photography

Fun, relaxed, creative, alternative wedding photography

Hello there,

I’m an alternative wedding photographer based in Whitstable, Kent and London. I love to go on adventures with my camera, and shooting reportage style stories as they unfold. I enjoy capturing occasions from the very start and documenting them.

I shoot fun, creative imagery, mingling in with the guests and capturing all the excitement and nerves everyone feels in the morning; the awkward laughing at the in-jokes during the speeches and craziness as everyone lets their hair down at the party.

I choose not to follow traditional conventions in my wedding photography. I like to move around and create a narrative showing people having the fun times you will remember,  rather than endless formal group shots, allowing you as much time to get involved in the most brilliant fun day of your life, with all your favourite people! I’ve been told by some couples they weren’t aware I was there, and others told me the guests thought I was one of them. By being unfussy and working this way, I can dedicate even more time to taking beautiful images that you will be able to look back on as a story of your perfect day.

I have shot weddings all over the United Kingdom, and recently moved beyond into Europe. I’m now based in Whitstable, Kent after a 15 year adventure in London, but I’m willing to travel anywhere in the world (within reason!) to capture your big day.

I’ve been featured in a number of publications, and in 2017 Tatler magazine named me one of their 5 favourite wedding photographers in the United Kingdom.
