for intimate occasions and shorter coverage

I’ve often heard (mostly from other wedding photographers funnily enough) that regardless of budget, one area that you shouldn’t skimp on is your photographer because photos will be all you have left after the cake has been eaten and the dress has been put away.

That’s not how I see things: What is most important after the wedding (apart from the getting married bit) are the memories.  Photos help to jog those memories of course, whether they’re from polaroid instants that you’ve given to guests, the ‘look at the camera’ iPhone pics, or Uncle Bob and the new DSLR that that he’s been itching to try out.  Sometimes and unfortunately me, photography just isn’t high up on the list of priorities.  

All weddings are joyous occasions and the potential of making pictures doesn’t diminish no matter how rustic. People are people, love is love and everything else is just stuff. 

So If you’re an engaged couple that is looking for an affordable wedding photographer for your intimate, relaxed or last-minute wedding, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

—Small, relaxed, intimate weddings

“Hi Wayne, wondered if you were available and if so, if you’re willing to photograph our tiny wedding?”.  Tiny wasn’t an exaggeration:  Sue and Andrew got married at the iconic Old Marylebone Town Hall with two of their closest friends in attendance.  We then caught a cab to St Pancras Renaissance Hotel for a few drinks and then dinner.  It’s easy to blend in at large weddings when I’m riding on a wave of excitement and euphoria along with the constant hustle and bustle.  These intimate weddings require me to build connections with people so I can photograph the connections between them. 

—Late booking and last minute enquiries

I had a really late wedding booking from Meg and Theo – literally 2 weeks before their October wedding!  I spoke to Meg on the phone and she hurriedly told me that they were getting married at Hammersmith Town Hall with 25 people, 10 of whom were children.  The day was GOLDEN in every sense.  Late Autumn sun was a constant stream through the huge windows of the Mayor’s Parlour, the excited chatter and occasional cry from the children lent the occasion an ever-so-light mood and the worldy combination of Japanese / Australian / French didn’t get in the way of fine conversation and a mutual appreciation of a fine joint of beef – served up down the local pub.
