1. Kristian Leven
"I'm always looking for moments which are emotive and natural, but also incredibly different and unique to each wedding. Outside of weddings I shoot a lot of street photography, which focuses on telling a story in a single image, and I approach every wedding in exactly the same way. I mainly cover London and the South East, but travel all over the UK and internationally as well."
2. Gary Lashmar of Marshal Gray
"I am a destination wedding photographer, based in London. If I had to sum up my photography style I would say it is a blend of photojournalism and artistic portraiture. I am very much inspired by the music photography of the '60s and '70s, as well as some of the great street photographers of the past 100 years. Photography for me is alchemy. To be able to still a moment in time is pure magic."
3. Nick Walker
"I am an award-winning wedding photographer whose style is natural, unobtrusive and artistic. Offering wedding photography throughout the UK, I want to be there to capture all the emotions of your day; the love, nerves and happiness that radiates from you and your guests on such a special day."
4. Genevieve Chapman
"I approach every wedding day as a storyteller, capturing moments as they unfold in a natural and unobtrusive way. Every wedding is unique, full of characters, love and laughter. My images will capture the atmosphere, the people and all the details that you’ve put into making this day yours. I believe the best wedding photography combines photojournalism and an editorial approach to create a beautiful and authentic story that will be shared through generations. I’m based in London and I travel all over the world for weddings."
5. Rahul Khona of F5 Photography
"I see myself as an artistic storyteller; I’m not your traditional wedding photographer. Every wedding I strive to document the day as it unfolds naturally in front of me, trying to capture all the emotion, the big moments, the little stories that weave together that make each couple’s wedding story unique. I want my couples to be able to re-live their day, and remember how they felt, their family and friends felt, through my photography. I predominantly cover London, Essex and Hertfordshire, as well as the rest of the UK."
6. Richard P Walton
As a destination photographer I strive to create original pieces of artwork that are unique to each individual couple. Images that are not copies of other wedding photographs, tradition goes out the window. It's not for everyone but for those who appreciate it and love it. I don't want to just be another wedding photographer; I want to be me and I want to have a positive impact on others; tapping into my own creativity makes this possible."
