Olive Joy Photography
"I’m Becky and I’m a photojournalistic wedding photographer based in West Sussex. I love capturing the atmosphere and emotion of a wedding day, including those beautiful finer details. I’m particularly fond of this photo because it’s later in the day (sunset is my absolute favourite) and I stole the bride and groom away from the crowd for a few minutes where they could enjoy being alone and soaking up all those just-married feelings. Capturing love stories is my passion and being a fly on the wall at each wedding I photograph is such an honour.” Becky Holdstock
"With a very natural, reportage style of photography, after the first dance I love to take the couple outside to photograph something a little more intimate. Once the pressures of the day have calmed down and the couple are more relaxed, I find this the perfect opportunity to capture the more tender moments between them. This photo of Gemma and Robert shows this so well; it isn’t about their relationship with me or the camera, just each other and with the addition of a stunning backdrop, that creates the most beautiful photograph." Andy Dorrington
JR Photography Ltd
“This is my favourite wedding photograph, taken in Paris long before starting my business. However, my style has not changed and I love pictures that tell a story and capture a moment in time. I am a UK and destination wedding photographer. My vision is to create art out of the moments that pass us by, capturing the emotion, light and colour of your wedding in beautiful images that will transport you back to each memory from your big day. My clients don't just want the typical photographs of their wedding, instead they desire those precious once-in-a-lifetime moments to be frozen in time with every detail distinctively captured. My photography style is mostly unobtrusive and for the majority of the day, you won’t notice me… that’s how I ensure the best results. A free initial consultation is available to all brides- and grooms-to-be.” Joanne Redington
Married To My Camera
"During your wedding planning, you may well come across one of the many 'Mobile Phones Ruined My Wedding' blog posts. While I do give my couples plenty of advice before the big day, the photograph I’ve chosen here very much represents my documentary style of photography. An approach that means I’m on my toes all day, and able to respond and adapt to whatever happens, rather than playing the part of the bossy photographer.
When this happy couple began their walk down the aisle as husband and wife I was faced with a wall of guests all with their mobile phones held aloft. I had to think quickly and went for a wide angle shot. Rather than detracting from the final picture, the phones frame the couple in the centre of the image. A real moment, and a signifier if you will, of their special status on that day, and the love that was felt so strongly between them, and their guests." David of Married To My Camera
Musk Photography and Films
"I love photographing the emotional and exciting moments before everything kicks off ahead of the big day. Just before Bryony was about to get into that gorgeous fairytale wedding dress, she had just handed out her thoughtful cards and gifts to her bridesmaids and it was such a lovely moment of joy between her and her best friend. The image is full of happiness, which is exactly what a wedding is all about.
I am a photographer and videographer based in the heart of Surrey and spontaneous moments like these are what drives my creativity. The greatest thing about being a photographer and videographer is capturing the raw emotion and the realness of people's most special day that they can look back on and really remember it as being the happiest of their lives." Natasha Musk
Tim Hills Photography
"One of my favourite shots of 2017 is this natural, unplanned shot of Kevin and Daniella taken at their beautiful wedding in the heart of the Sussex countryside. It was captured just moments after they had tied the knot on a stunning summer’s day. They took a chance with an open air wedding and a very unique location and in this shot you can really see that it all paid off when everything went to plan and the bride and groom began to relax.
I'd describe my style as natural, fun-finding and personal. I love shooting journalistic, unobtrusive and candid shots, while maintaining flexibility in order to create a tailored experience for each and every couple. Choosing the right photographer to suit and match your personalities and tastes is important; your photographer should put you at ease while such special moments are captured and documented forever."
"At FandSPhotography we feel that our photos should reflect the individuality of each couple, telling their unique story. Adam and Amber started their journey by getting engaged in Disneyland, which later inspired a Disney themed reception. We wanted to incorporate the magical atmosphere of their wedding into our photography. Northbrook Park and its picturesque landscape provided us with an great opportunity to do this. With peacocks roaming the surrounding gardens, vibrant leaves decorating the ground, and the ever-wandering vines embellishing the walls, we felt part of a fairytale.
We wanted to capture and create an image in which this couple could simply look at, while still feeling the seasonal breeze, hearing the enchanting hustle of the estate's nature, and imagining the crunch of the autumnal leaves. We did this with the hope that it would bring fleeting moments of this important day back into focus whenever the couple so wishes." Ella Smeddles
"I love this photo from the LUXESTAR photo booth - a fun, alternative family photo to celebrate the wedding of Alice and Craig. The LUXESTAR photo booth is always a sensational hit. Hilarious fun, funky backdrops, professional camera and beauty lighting makes everyone look effortlessly stylish and cool. A great memory maker for your wedding.
As a wedding photographer for the last 13 years, I have photographed many weddings and if there is one thing that completes the party at the end of the day it’s definitely the appearance of a luxury photo booth. Just imagine a whole gallery of stunning photographs of your friends and family all looking flawless. Unlike other photo booths where you just pile in and hope for the best, the LUXESTAR photo booth is open air and extremely stylish looking; it even has a professional member of staff to man it and your stunning photos are printed out at the highest quality within minutes."
