About Me

Martin Sylvester is a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in London, Uk. 

I grew up on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where there is no such thing as winter! In 2010 I came back up to the UK, born near Portsmouth, to do a degree in MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Nottingham. It was during my time at University that I developed a passion for photography.  I started out by being a contributor to the Student Magazine and before long I became the official sports photographer. In 2014 the University sent  me to China to capture their annual Tri-Campus Games, which solidified my desire to be a professional photographer. 


Throughout all this, on this journey, I enjoyed taking photographs of people at the various sporting events, more than the actual sports teams, capturing the emotions and reactions immediately  after victory or loss.  

When I started my business I found my true passion, and I am pleased to say that I'm an in-demand wedding photographer covering ceremonies in London and further afield. 

I work closely with my couples to make sure I document all of the moments and people who are important to them on their wedding day. My style is a healthy mix of documentary or reportage photography that stays away from overly staged images, capturing instead the natural aesthetic of your special day. But equally I believe every couple should feel regale on their day, so I incorporate a dramatic flair of editorial / fashion photography for the couples shoot. Making sure that through my images, you'll always be excited to remember your big day.
