the wedding vine - wedding directory and online shop
We’ve been photographing weddings for 6 years and our style is modern and relaxed and all about you! It’s not about our ego or a one sized fits all approach – it’s about capturing your wedding day as you see it. We take informal photographs of the day starting from the bridal preparations through to the first dance – but we also believe every couple should have amazing photographs of themselves as well.
We won’t do photographs that look cheesy– we will do fun and modern portraits which capture the essence of you both.
We also understand that when you’ve got your families and friends together you may want some group photographs – but don’t worry – we keep these quick and natural giving you more time to enjoy your day!
We offer a complimentary engagement shoot for all our clients. It usually takes between 1.5 - 2 hours and can be done at a location of your choice. We put the emphasis on fun so it doesn’t matter whether you’re a shrinking violet or a diva in front of the camera – we’ll make some great photographs together and by the end of the session, you’ll be as cool as a cucumber about the photographs on your wedding day. It’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know each other so that on the day – it’ll be like being photographed by a friend!
Our coverage starts with the bride getting ready. It’s a great time to get fabulous photographs of your dress, shoes, jewellery and to capture all the little moments that happen during the getting ready part of the day.
Your wedding will always be covered by John as the main photographer and he will often be assisted by a second photographer to give you more coverage, allowing moments and perspectives being captured that may not be possible with just one photographer.
We’ll then photograph your guests arriving and then whether you’re getting married in a church or civil service – we’ll discretely capture the ceremony.
After the ceremony and during the reception we’ll photograph you and your guests informally.
We like to take a relaxed approach to our photography but if you want more ‘formal’ shots of your family and friends this usually takes place just after the ceremony/drinks reception. This will all be done as quickly as possible and without us getting bossy. We’ll then take you both away for a short time to give you some time to yourselves and also so we can take some fabulous photographs of the two of you.
Sometimes people just want us to photograph the ceremony up to the wedding breakfast but if you want us to stay for the 1st dance and party that is no problem. Everyone is different so we tailor what we do to what you want!
Your wedding day is personal to you so we offer bespoke prices and packages to suit your individual requirements. Your price will be tailored to the amount of coverage you want and whether you want an album or disk of images or both!
