Weddings & Engagements

Nothing beats a lovely wedding. Family, friends, love, friendship, and dressing up. To be asked to photograph a wedding is a real privilege.  Seeing a couple’s reaction to the photos is wonderful. It really is a joy to capture those moments for the whole family to cherish.


So how much does it cost?


The most popular package costs £1200. For that you get the whole shebang.


I will arrive in time to capture the preparations and stay till a little after the first dance.  That’s usually just right.


I will be there to document the details – the little things that make your day special. I want to capture the emotions and the feelings of your wedding as simply and as truthfully as I can. Natural shots where everyone is enjoying the day. That’s where I love to be – telling the story with as little fuss as possible, unobtrusively. One of the nicest compliments I’ve had was someone commenting that after looking at my photographs they felt like they’d been there at the wedding.


You will receive a USB stick with at least 250 images on, ready to print within four weeks. You then have the rights to print and distribute as many pictures as you like.  You'll also have a secure online gallery for guests to view and purchase images if they so wish.  I’ll even throw in a complimentary engagement shoot in Cardiff.  This comprehensive wedding package covers travel within 100 miles of Cardiff.  Beyond that – I will pop the mileage on the final bill along with accommodation if it’s needed.


That’s it in a nutshell.


Other packages.


£950 gets you all of the above but Claire will leave after the speeches.


£850 gets you Claire arriving for the ceremony and leaving after the speeches.


If you require another photographer so that even more precious moments get captured, you can - for an extra £250.


Albums


It's so easy to print your own images these days but nothing beats a lovely well designed album printed by specialists in the business.


If you wish to push the boat out  you can purchase a beautiful, handcrafted 10” x 10” leather Folio album for £550. Inside, each chosen photograph will be printed on professional fine art paper.  Made to be viewed and made to last.


I also offer the Infinity Coffee Table Book with a photo cover for £300.  The pages are of the finest heavyweight, silk coated paper. Again, very durable and made to last.



The basic wedding package covers travel within 100 miles of Cardiff.  Beyond that – I will pop the mileage on the final bill along with accommodation if it’s needed.


So if you fancy meeting up to discuss your day – just contact me and I’ll get back to you.


We will then arrange a meeting to discuss requirements. If you decide you want to book me, then you’ll pay a £350 deposit, which secures the day.


Thanks for taking a look and I very much hope to hear from you. Either way – all the best with your special day.


Testimonials


“I wanted to write and thank you for the amazing pictures. Owain and I and our families were overwhelmed by how beautiful they are. We were all impressed with how you interacted with us on the day and managed to present us with images which tell the story of our magical day, from the nervous and exciting preparations to the first dance. I've received so many compliments and everybody says how they make them smile, laugh and wipe away a tear. Just gorgeous. You have an incredibly inventive and creative eye for capturing the emotional and comical moments in a wedding that take you back in an instant. We really can't thank you enough.”
