WEDDINGS

Planning a wedding, full-day event or bigger?

Talk to me about what you need, meet me and chat or phone me up - you need a photographer who listens to what you want and doesn't simply have a list of items for you to pick from. Each package is bespoke - I ask what's important to you and we build coverage around that. I don't have a fixed price list because you are special and that calls for something that is unique to you.

Does it feel like I am avoiding your question? Well let's say it's a little like me owning a restaurant and who you arrive, you ask: "How much is your food?"... Well, I would have to say that it very much depends on what you want, your appetite and how you want to feel afterwards... maybe you just need a takeaway?

If you have a tight budget, I'll come along to just the most important part of your wedding day, maybe that's even 90 minutes, to fit what you can spend, so that you will get a set of (minimum of 80) photos high resolution digital format in a secure online portal that's password-protected too.

Wedding prices include expert editing, venue knowledge, 30 years of experience from me and this means you can relax and really enjoy the smiling part. I'm working to a far shorter deadline, thanks to my time in The Press, photographing celebrities, which sets me ahead of most of my competitors, so you get the pictures much faster. So if speed is important to you, note that I aim to offer a 5 day turnaround on your set of photos. YES... FIVE DAYS!

Full day wedding coverage is your best option for complete coverage, with me fully immersed in your celebration - getting ready, those moments from your ceremony that went by in a blur, candid moments I've spotted with your guests, formal groups, speeches, the first dance too - you'd expect to receive a minimum of 350 professional photos supplied at high resolution.

All wedding bookings include an engagement/walkabout shoot before the big day as you show me round the venue and describe your event to me, so I know the bits most important to you - and I'll add a "Can't wait for our big date" text overlay onto your favourite picture for you to share on social media too, if you'd like.

My most basic day package ALSO includes up to SIX edited pro photos sent to a nominated mobile number on the day for you to share online before those phone photos get out there from your guests.

Other options include books and prints - I can make you a hardback glossy 11x8" coffee table book with up to 30 photos inside, which makes the perfect evergreen keepsake that you can look at over and over again. And it's child-friendly too!

AND I can make you a movie, even though there's no crew involved - I'll produce a video highlights reel which contains up to 30 of your favourite photographs that move to music - delivered to you within one week of you choosing which pictures  I can add your names and the date and any special message to your guests too at the end or beginning of the video.

Would you like at least one 12x8" mounted velvet giclée art print of your choice in a swish A3 lightweight white frame ready to put on the wall? Or maybe gifts of framed prints for your parents? I can build that in too, with a great price if you include this when we plan your coverage.

Sounds like I can deliver what you are picturing? Yep - it's the biggest day of your life and I love capturing it so let's do it properly and let's find out your most important moment.

What next?

Let's chat - We can do a call, a Zoom or meet at the venue - it's up to you.
