I’m frequently contacted by couples who are having a short wedding and require good value wedding photography for only two or three hours.  These may be couples for whom the wedding day photography isn’t such a big deal but they still want the key events documenting.  It’ll often be a small party of guests made up purely of very close family and friends.  I once shot a 2 hours wedding where the only people present were the couple and their witnesses.  It ended up being one of the loveliest weddings and I felt privileged to be in attendance.  It meant I could concentrate more closely on the characters present and their relationship to each other.  They were very happy with the finished photographs and I was happy to accommodate their need for a short wedding photographer (length of time, not height!!).

Many couples are on a very strict budget and this dictates how extravagant they can be when planning their day. Whilst there are many budget photographers out there, this is one area where you really do get what you pay for.  It’s so nice to know that despite limited funds, people are still willing to shell out for decent photographs worthy of the occasion. I deliver affordable wedding photography to a high standard and for people who may be on a budget or just need less hours covering.


Wedding Ceremony at Islington Town Hall


Other people requiring short wedding coverage may be more mature and will have done it before.  The day is no less important to them than the first time, and this is why they want a good photographer.  They don’t necessarily need all the trimmings of a church wedding.  A register office ceremony and yummy meal with loved ones means much more to them than a lavish ‘do’.

But whatever the reason, many couples just require time limited photography coverage centred around the ceremony itself. On these days, things usually start for me about half an hour before the ceremony. This gives me a chance to gather some scene setting and arrival shots. After the couple emerge as husband and wife, I can take some confetti and group shots outside the wedding venue. Sometimes I then accompany them to a reception meal afterwards and even stay to photograph the speeches.  These are sometimes brought forward which means I don’t have to attend for as long, reducing the costs further.

So I do cater for the smaller wedding parties who require less time spent on the photography. The average amount of time required is 3-4 hours but I can start from as little as 2 hours coverage and go up to 5 before my full day photography rates kick in (click link below).
