Night time photos are so unique and add another dimension to your wedding album! Gone are the days of rushing through wedding photos during daylight hours. Plus, shooting at night allows you to sneak off with your new spouse and take a breather during the celebrations. It’ll be a lovely memory that can be cherished for years to come.

Capturing Candid Moments

Whilst it is lovely to look back on the more editorial images, the celebratory atmosphere captured in the candid images can evoke memories of the smaller details of your day. Whether it is the champagne pop, throwing shapes on the dancefloor or maybe that subtle look that your partner gives you on the day, if the photographer is at the right place at the right time, they are sure to capture those fun memories.

City Chic

We absolutely love city weddings! With the cobbled streets as the aisle and the colourful walls as your backdrop, these images are fun, vibrant and completely different to the traditional country house or beautiful hotel. With the city as your playground, the photographer is able to capture the character of the city itself.

Inject your personality

More and more, we are seeing couples move away from the traditional wedding poses and injecting their personality into the photographs. This trend is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd and make your wedding day all about you! It is your wedding day after all!
