Wedding Services Offered


For your special day I am able to offer a complete service which includes;

Initial Meeting

The first meeting is to meet the bride and groom, and for them to learn about the services I offer. This is an opportunity to get an outline of the big day, and to find out what’s particularly special and unique about this wedding. We’ll also use this meeting to look through examples of my previous work and to talk about the different styles of photography I can offer and learn exactly what the couple are looking for.

The timing of the initial meeting will be chosen to suit everyone, but will usually be several months before the wedding.

Engagement shoot/ Engagement party

In addition to wedding photography on the “big day”, many couples now like to have a engagement shoot. Depending on your own plans and time table, there is the option to add an engagement portrait shoot which will normally be outdoors where I’ll do a series of individual and couple portraits  in a mutually convenient location. Alternatively if you’re planning an engagement party I can cover that for you too!

Second Meeting

For the second meeting I like to meet the couple at the wedding and reception venues. This gives time to get a feel for the upcoming celebration, and to explore the venues and the opportunities they offer rather than rushing on the day. I’ll often use visiting the wedding venue as a chance to meet the officials, check-out what is and isn’t allowed, and to get the inside information on where to take the best shots. Finally, I’ll use this meeting as an opportunity to confirm details, and have a quiet word with the bride and groom separately so I’ll be ready any “little surprises” they may have prepared for each other on the day – at one wedding the “little surprise” was a double-decker London bus!

On the Day

I cover the full day as follows;

  • At the Bride’s home (or as required)
    • Shots of the Bride and Bridesmaids getting ready
  • At the wedding venue
    • The Groom and best man, as they wait for the Bride to arrive
    • The Bride’s arrival including stepping out of the wedding car, and the Bride and her entourage before they enter the venue
    • The service, including giving and receiving of rings, and “the kiss
    • Signing the register
    • Walking down the aisle/leaving the venue formal portraits
    • Formal and candid portraits, the confetti shot
  • At the reception
    • Formal and candid portraits
    • Welcome line/Wedding breakfast (if required)
    • Speeches
    • Cutting the cake
    • First dance
After the Event

As soon as possible after the event the photographs are backed-up to my server, then securely copied to an off-site backup to minimise the risk of loss.

IMG_3090The photographs are then individually processed, to get the absolute best from each image, this may well include conversion to black and white or the use of other artistic effects (air brushing and re-touching is available as a separate service). Since each photograph is individually processed this can take up to 2 weeks.

Once complete the images are delivered on USB memory stick containing the full high-resolution images without copyright messages.

For certain shoots I do a write-up of the day which features on my web site where I describe the shoot from my perspective, highlight some of the important elements of the day and show-case my favourite images, as well as providing an online slideshow of the images.

Please Note
I retain the copyright and ownership of all images, but give full permission to use the images for any non-commercial purpose.


The above wedding service starts at £795, and an engagement portrait shoot is £150 or £200 for an engagement party depending on location.
