Tying The Knot

So, after all the hints you dropped he finally asked you to marry him!!! You've got the big rock, set the date, booked the venue and now it's time to find the wedding photographer. What a dilemma! There are so many out there all offering different things and at such a mix of prices. Your photographer should be the kind of person you would actually invite to your wedding. A friend you can totally trust. After all, it's going to be a unique and unrepeatable event.

Styles of wedding photography differ so widely now but we have styles and techniques to capture the magic of your special day. Our feminine touch will put you, and even the groom at ease, which is most essential for happy meaningful pictures. The whole story of your wedding day is bound together in a beautiful album for you to cherish and pass down through the years to your children and grandchildren.

We regularly receive compliments about our discreet, unobtrusive style of working not only from our clients but also from their guests. The majority of our work now comes from recommendations. We have established a good rapport with many local venues and wedding suppliers and are able to recommend florists, vintage wedding cars and limousines to make your day extra special.  After all, we've been doing this job since 2004!

Our prices are extremely competitive and start from £325 (for a basic 2 hour small wedding package) and with all our packages we include a pre-wedding meeting about 4 weeks before the event to discuss the overall day and the photographs you particularly want taking. We also suggest that you have a pre-wedding shoot to get you used to being in front of the camera, which can be done at the pre-wedding meeting.

Coverage on the day generally begins from the bride's preparations until the wedding breakfast (or the first dance for an extra £300). Photographs from the day can be viewed by a private link on this website. Our extensive range of superb high quality hand finished albums, ranging from classical traditional styles through to contemporary digital magazine style books and albums, will appeal to all tastes and budgets.

We only attend one wedding a day so you are assured of our full attention and professional standards at all times.
