"We always love capturing those special moments between loving couples, family and friends whether staged or not. Those moments when people are relaxed and not having to 'smile for the camera' or 'say cheese' are the moments we aim to capture with my documentary style of photography. Gone are the group shots of people hiding from the camera's gaze, to be replaced by vibrant, natural images you will cherish forever." Colin and Diane


GRW Photography, 

"Visually telling the story of a couple's special day is at the core of my wedding photography. I specialise in a documentary style, capturing the day in a relaxed reportage way with natural couple portraits in-keeping with his unobtrusive and friendly manner. I am passionate about pictures and creating timeless memories. A recognised finalist in the Reportage Wedding Photographer of the Year category at the South West Wedding Awards for the past four years, I have travelled all over the UK telling people’s story and creating something genuinely different which they will cherish for a lifetime." Gareth Williams


Nick Pearce Photography, 

"My style depicts a fun, fresh and natural approach with my veritable way of capturing your life event by telling a story through natural images. Very much in love with wedding photography, the countryside and natural beauty around us, I will become your friend from day one with unlimited patience and an amiable mood that can bring out the best in people's emotions... even the most camera shy."

"Heather and Chris were married in Combpyne at Heather's family farm in August 2017. This shot was taken in one of the fields above the farm and it is one of my favourites of the year. It's super relaxed and unposed and I think it really shows the beauty and wildness of the bride and groom as well as the countryside behind them. My photography style is very informal and relaxed and I enjoy weddings that are different from the norm." Emily Hardingham



"As a wedding photographer, I love to capture natural and tender moments. The image here is of a beautiful moment between a father and his two daughters, just before his youngest gets married. After months of planning it comes down to the last few minutes before the ceremony where they can stop, just for a second, to take a breath and concentrate on the finest of details by tweaking his tie to make sure that everything is just right... as he prepares to walk his daughter down the aisle, and to the next chapter in her life." Stephanie Snooks



"Summer loving... had me a blast, at this exquisite country themed wedding for a young Devon farming couple. The day included a shiny tractor used by the groom to transport himself to the church, through to hay bales for the guests to rest and chat on in between ceilidh dancing. This shot was snapped just before meeting up with the couple's sheep dogs for a few posed shots. My style of wedding photography is natural, chic and romantic and sees me using natural light wherever possible. I especially love to work with nature's surroundings to create beautiful framing to an image." Meg
