You won't be surprised to hear that Covid-19 has had a major impact on weddings and wedding photography. All this summer's weddings have been postponed, and we don't yet know what will be possible next year, let alone this autumn. Combining weddings with social distancing and keeping everyone safe is challenging to envisage.
At present, I am unable to meet in person with couples to explore whether I would be a good photographer for your wedding, but I am happy to have a phone or video chat about weddings planned for 2021. (Given the current complications, I'm not looking to add any further 2020 bookings at this stage.)
You want to be relaxed on your big day. But it flies by too quickly. I'll take care of capturing all the special moments for you to remember and re-live for years to come.
Relaxed bride and groom
It's all about you. From our getting-to-know-you time onwards, I'll do everything I can to help your preparations go smoothly, to help you enjoy the whole thing. Most couples take up my offer of a free pre-wedding portrait shoot. It helps you to feel confident on the big day, and you might well like to order a signing book using photos from the session.
Got kids? No problem. Kids are extra-special people who do fun things and keep people smiling. If you need a family-friendly wedding photographer, look no further. (I am DBS checked, too.)
Natural wedding photos A relaxed walk in the woods at Brigstock, Northamptonshire
I'll usually cover the whole day from getting ready through to your first dance. I'll do some group photos for you, and special portrait photos of the two of you. But most of the time you'll hardly notice I'm there, as I'm in the background, capturing the details and emotions of your day as they happen naturally.
Same-day slideshow at Sedgebrook Hall, Northamptonshire
Do you have extra guests coming for the evening Reception? My unique same-day photofilm slideshow of the ceremony kicks the reception off and gets your guests straight into your day. Yes, you can actually get to see some of your wedding photos on your wedding day!
It's easy to include both wedding photography and videography in the same package. As there are no extra photographers to worry about, coverage will still be relaxed and unobtrusive.
