Stunning examples of same sex wedding photography
04 May 2018
Eight photographers share some of their most beautiful images from same sex weddings, showcasing their talent and inspiring prospective couples
Starlight Photography (based in Dorset)
"For me, wedding photography’s all about recording the story of your day – capturing all the love, fun, excitement and emotion as it happens while enabling everyone’s natural style to shine through. Because you, as a couple, are at the heart of everything I do, my unobtrusive approach will enable you to relax and enjoy being photographed on the day and will give you superb images to remember for a lifetime." Phil at Starlight Photography
One review reads: 'Truly amazing photos, thank you again Phil. We would highly recommend anyone who’s thinking of using Starlight to stop thinking and just book Starlight Photography'.
Laura Lees Photography (based in Richmond, Surrey)
"Meriel and Lois had a very unconventional same sex wedding in Hackney, London. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest they were married at the iconic Hackney Town Hall. They chose a disused Soda Works factory to hold their ‘pop-up’ wedding reception. They wanted me to capture their very special day in a documentary style. Most couples I work with want me to capture all the little moments that they will miss together and separately.
"Candid wedding photography tells a wedding day story from start to finish perfectly. This is what I specialise in as a wedding photographer.
"As we all walked from Hackney Town Hall to their reception venue, there was an opportunity to capture them walking across a zebra crossing. This is one of mine (and their) favourite images from their day. A totally natural image of them walking together as soon as they were married."
Ufniak Photography (based in South Yorkshire)
"Vicky and Lauren got married in Harrogate, a sweet town nestled in North Yorkshire. Both brides wore stunning gowns that featured delicate beadwork and intricate lace, fastened with a tidy row of dainty covered buttons marching up the back. Together, they made a stunning and incredibly happy couple. The reception was full of love, energy and music from a vintage jukebox. This wedding was one of the most beautiful and exciting opportunities I’ve ever had to provide my skills in wedding photography. I am so grateful to have been part of Lauren and Vicky’s wedding day.
"I am a Yorkshire-based wedding photographer covering the whole of the UK and photographing weddings abroad." Michal Ufniak
Hazel Buckley (based near London)
"I have a soppy heart – one that loves to witness two people in love committing themselves to each other forever - so photographing a wedding is the perfect job for me. I don't really care if you are committing to a same sex marriage or a not. However, I do care about equality and that we all have the same choices in this crazy roller-coaster of life we find ourselves in.
"Throughout the day with you I will capture the quite moments, the laughter, the stolen glances, and those moments when you are blissfully unaware of my presence – usually because you are chatting with loved ones or embraced in a slow, snuggly snog. The picture I have chosen to share with you was made in Windsor - two beautiful women taking their first stroll as Mrs and Mrs.
“The review reads: 'Hazel the pictures are AMAZING, we love them all.Thank you - we cant wait to show them all to the family'."
Mark Nortcliffe (based in Cambridge)
"A relaxed candid moment during the speeches. Simply a couple enjoying time with their family and friends; those that love them unconditionally. No barriers, no filters and no prejudice. I love the fact that every wedding I shoot is different and unique. Weddings shouldn’t fit into neat little boxes; weddings don’t deserve to be labelled in that way and neither do my couples. A marriage is a partnership - end of.
"Being a gay man myself I know the anxiety I had looking for my own photographer - one who wouldn’t judge me for who I am. Let me be your photographer for your big day and I will capture all the emotion and tell your story as the day unfolds to offfer a natural, unhurried, unobtrusive relaxed style of photography. Lets do this."
RJH Wedding Photography (based in Sheffield)
"The wedding of Becky and Carli was a small event reserved for family and close friends, but the small numbers certainly didn't diminish the love they shared on the day. Full of beautiful details and wonderful people that inspired so many wonderful images.
"At RJH Wedding Photography we serve venues across the Midlands and Yorkshire and aim to cover your wedding with a blend of classic and contemporary styles to capture the glamour of your day, without overlooking the fun candid moments. We stand for classical, timeless, treasured memories." Rob at RJH Wedding Photography
Beth Faulder Photography (based in the Lake District)
"The wedding of Danielle and Tasha. The girls had been planning their special day for a couple of years which resulted in us all having a couple of meetings prior to the wedding to discuss the plans and ideas they both had. Danielle and Tasha were full of ideas and loved memories captured by cameras, they wanted to have a lot of time alone taking these fun images that we had discussed. On the day of the wedding they braved going paddling and we had so much fun, the photos were amazing. Tasha and Danielle both have so much love for each other and it was amazing to watch and be part of such a special day.
"I am a Lake District wedding photographer who loves to capture different, fun ideas which harness the character of each individual's style and the wedding theme."
Martyn Norsworthy Photography (based in the South West)
"This photo was taken at Andy and Anthony's wedding. They had a country house wedding which was lovely, but mid afternoon they suddenly decided they wanted to head to the beach. Knowing the area so well I made a speedy shortcut through the lanes, halving the time that it would take on the main roads. So, last minute, we bundled them into our car and sped off through the Devon lanes. We made it there and back before the wedding breakfast. Both ourselves and the couple were so pleased with what we did; the skies and the blue suits looked stunning against the contrast of the beach and vegetation. Such a sunny, happy and private moment."
