Sydney Wedding Photographer

Welcome to Gold Hat Photography. My name's Mark and I'm a Sydney wedding photographer. On this site you will find a range of my own personal photography for you to get a general idea of my style. If you'd like to find out more about at my wedding photography packages, click here.

I'm originally from Nottingham in the UK, having lived there for most of my life, followed by a stint in Paris and 7 years in Tokyo, during which time I had many crazy experiences including becoming a Japanese soap star - you can read about that here! Now I'm in Sydney and I'm doing my best to freshen up the wedding photography industry, to show couples that their wedding photos don't have to look like everyone else's.

My fresh, candid and creative approach to photography has been featured on several wedding photography sites including the Polka Dot Bride and Style Me Pretty. Some of the other work you will see on this site has been exhibited at the Tokyo Tower Art Gallery.

My wedding photography aims to capture those fleeting moments and raw emotion that define your wedding day. I will be there in the background, unobtrusively capturing every precious second, to create a storybook of memories for you to treasure. I look forward to giving you a set of captivating and timeless images that you'll be proud to show your friends and children for years to come.

If you're looking for a wedding photographer, it's a bit of a daunting process. I'm the first to admit that there are many talented Sydney wedding photographers out there, and you're no doubt overwhelmed by them all! My advice for you is this - after the quality of the photos, the most important factor in choosing your wedding photographer should be whether or not you 'click'! After all, you'll be spending the most important day of your lives with the wedding photographer you choose, surrounded by all your closest friends and family, so why not spend it with someone you'd be happy to call a friend :-)

If you like my photography style and think it would be the perfect match to your wedding, get in touch and let's meet up for a chat so we can get to know eachother a little. Click here to send me an email and I promise I'll get back to you within a few hours. In the meantime, have a browse of my latest pics...

LOST Hunting Club Sydney Event

April 15th, 2014

A green field in a town called Richmond, a game of polo, plaid, tweed, rain and wellies… I felt like I was back in England! But no, it’s just that time of the year again for another LOST themed event – The Hunting Club. This was actually the first time I’ve ever seen polo and […]

Orient Express Sydney Event

December 19th, 2013

December is the time for Christmas parties and I’ve been lucky enough to shoot some really fun events this year. This particular party was at the  Cornerstone Bar in the Eveleigh Carriageworks, a great location for the 1930′s Orient Express theme of the night. Unfortunately, due to a rather strict photography policy, I wasn’t able […]

Gatsby Sydney Event

December 8th, 2013

It’s been a busy time for me and event work recently. For some reason Larry and Serge have decided to put me on page 1 of their search engine for the term Sydney Event Photographer, which could explain the Bat-phone ringing off the hook… I’m in two minds about shooting events. It’s back-breaking work, largely […]

LOST Secret Circus

November 19th, 2013

These LOST events are always great fun to shoot. Everyone’s friendly, happy and ready to party, and the effort that goes into the costumes makes for some interesting photos. I also like the challenge of having to grab someone to shoot, put them in good light (if possible), find an interesting background, pose them (if […]

Couples Shoot in Newtown – Dean & Liza

October 28th, 2013

I’m so lucky to be able to shoot couples as interesting as these guys. Just look at how amazing Liza looks in her dress! Liza and Dean contacted me this month regarding their wedding next year. The thing was, they hadn’t quite decided who would be their wedding photographer for the big day, so wanted […]

The Hundred

August 21st, 2013

It’s been a while since I took any photos ‘just for fun’. I haven’t picked up my dslr for anything other than work recently because I find it a bit bulky for everyday use. Carrying it around is just not very pleasurable. That’s my excuse anyway… and that’s why I bought myself a new toy […]

Cycling in Chiang Mai

June 24th, 2013

This being my fourth time to Thailand, I wanted to try something different to the usual beach holiday. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been spoilt living in sunny Sydney, but laying around on the beach on holiday doesn’t really interest me any more. With this in mind, Elissa and I booked our first […]

Happi Days – A Japanese girl in Surry Hills

May 14th, 2013

Here are some photos I took a few weeks ago in Surry Hills. Rickey is wearing a ‘Happi’, a short sleeved, casual garment usually worn to festivals in Japan, and carrying a ‘higasa’ – a traditional Japanese sun shade. Here’s an article I wrote about the role my mother had in making the Beatles wear […]

Wakeboarding Weekend

May 5th, 2013

This weekend we stayed in an amazing lakeside guest house in Cottage Point in the Ku-rinigai Chase National Park. The plan was to do some wakeboarding, which some of us did, whilst the others were towed a few metres lying face up in the water until they let go of the rope. Rather embarrassingly, I was […]

Yamba

April 12th, 2013

This Easter we went to a small fishing town called Yamba on the northern coast of NSW to celebrate Elissa’s mum’s 50th birthday. The weather wasn’t particularly good the whole time that we were there, but the location definitely made for some interesting photos. A few of the pics from the weekend were used in […]
