Warwickshire Wedding Photography
“Andy! Thanks for all the photos, they are incredible! I honestly wanted them all to go in the album, hehe”.
“Thanks so much! We’ve just watched the slideshow, it’s brilliant! (With fish ‘n’ chips and champagne- we know how to do it in style!) Can’t wait for the gallery link so we can share with the family!”
“The photos arrived on Saturday and we did what you suggested and sat and watched the slideshow with a bottle of fizz! Thank you so much, the photos looked amazing and the slideshow was perfect!”
“We have already been to show the slideshow to Chris’ parents and grandparents and are now heading north to show it off to Stef’s family! We just can’t stop watching it!”
You’re looking for a fun and relaxed photographer who won’t boss you or your guests around. You want honest and fun photos, not just copies of the same Pinterest shots we’ve all seen before.
I’m relaxed and chilled in life generally, and I think this really helps me get the best photos. I’m a people person!
For me, it’s about real moments: The groom looking nervous as he’s getting ready, the bride getting emotional with her Mum and Dad when they see her in the wedding dress for the first time, the look on the groom’s face when he sees his bride walking towards him down the aisle…
The vast majority of my work is of a documentary, candid, style. I also enjoy spending just a few minutes making creative and fun portraits. I shoot these in a way that looks natural. I don’t do forced or cheesy. You’ll get a good feel for the way I shoot HERE.
I truly believe that the good old family group shots are important as well. I get them done as efficiently as I can so they don’t take very long. They may never win any photography awards, but they will become more valuable with time, I promise you.
THE MOOLAH, THE DAMAGE
I keep things really simple. There are no hidden charges or complicated package options! You can choose from unlimited coverage or an hourly rate alternative:
UNLIMITED Coverage – £1,850*
This option will suit you if you are spending effort planning a stunning wedding, and you want the whole day documented. The price includes unlimited coverage from me on the day, up to midnight when my carriage turns into a pumpkin. I’ll be there from morning prep, right through to the first dance and the after party. I often shoot some of my favourite images later in the evening, when people truly let their hair down and enjoy themselves. Packing up and going home straight after the first dance doesn’t make any sense to me because I do love a party!
*For weddings more than a 90-minute drive away from Leamington Spa, a £195 supplement will be added to cover travel and accommodation. For destination weddings within the EU, this supplement is £695.
The Hourly Rate Alternative – £250 ph.
If you’re planning something more low key and don’t want the full day package, then the hourly rate option could be for you. It’s really popular with people who only want between 2-6 hours of coverage. There are no hidden charges but the hours do need to be continuous. The hourly rate option is only available for weddings no more than a 1-hour drive away from Leamington Spa.
Weekday Short Coverage – Up to 3 hours for £500
If you’re getting married on a weekday, within a 1-hour drive from Leamington Spa, and are looking for short coverage, this is the deal for you! Up to three hours of coverage is usually plenty of time to cover all the important essentials: The ceremony, family group shots, some nice creative portraits and plenty of candid moments of you and your guests.
what do YOU get?
Regardless of which package you go for, you will ALWAYS receive:
- The Hi-Resolution, print-ready files and a Slideshow to play on your Phone/Laptop/TV. (You can expect around 400 images for a full day’s coverage with no 2nd photographer.)
- A link to your online SLIDESHOW and PHOTO GALLERY emailed to you so you can forward it on to your family and friends for easy viewing, sharing, and ordering of professional quality prints & wall products.

HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER
I highly recommend you have a SECOND photographer, which I can arrange. This is an additional £400 with the full day package or £50 per hour with the hourly rate alternative (subject to a minimum charge of £200).
WHY HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
I totally recommend paying for a second photographer. A second photographer can be invaluable for morning prep with the groom, extra angles during the ceremony (normally from the back) and lots of extra candid moments when I might normally be busy working my way through family group shots or when we are off doing some awesome couple portraits away from your guests.
I only use photographers that I know well and who shoot in a similar way to me. I can’t recommend having one enough…
My GIF ROBOT is a totally unique type of photo booth – it’s an automated, animated GIF generating, Photo Booth! If you’re bored of normal Photo Booths, this is for you.
GIF ROBOT lets your guests generate fast-paced, fun and incredibly addictive animated GIFs which are sent to their phone instantly. Guests can then choose to share on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat if they wish. Use your wedding #hashtag too! You’ll be given all the digital files from GIF ROBOT to keep forever, along with your main wedding images.
GIF ROBOT is only £250 for up to 2 hours with any wedding package. It’s normally best to kick off the GIF ROBOT after the first dance. Remember, it’s totally automated so I am still free to capture all the fun as it happens, wherever it happens.
Check out the video to see how the Gif Robot works.
My printed albums start at £300 for a lovely 12×12 inch photo book and go up to £650 for a 12×12 inch Fine Art “Museum Grade” wedding album with leather covers and thick matt art paper pages.
Both options have 80 images included for the fixed price, which is usually plenty to tell the story of your day.
Additional ‘Mini Albums’ replicas for parents and grandparents (for example) are also available, and I can give you more detail on these if you are interested.
Have an engagement shoot with the edited Hi-Resolution photos included for £300.
This is a GREAT way for us to get to know each other before the big day, helping you to relax in front of the camera.
To get a flavour for what other couples have done, view my engagements gallery HERE.
I can create you a cool book for your guests to leave their messages in. A popular option is to use the images from your engagement shoot. We design the album for you with lots of blank space around the images for your guests to write messages in. Signing albums are A4 size (landscape) and cost £250.
A lovely alternative to a signing album is a signing frame. They are 20×24 inches in size, and come supplied with your favourite image from the engagement shoot. They have a large mount surrounding the image, leaving plenty of room for your guests to write messages. Signing frames are £200 and can be hung up in your house as a beautiful reminder of how much you’re loved.
