Beautiful Documentary Wedding Photography Filled With Emotion & Feeling
What We Do
Hello and welcome! We are Oliver and Ruth, a two-photographer team who specialise in capturing the story of your wedding day in a discreet, fly-on-the-wall documentary style.
We love to focus on the emotion and atmosphere of the wedding and for the best part of the day you’ll hardly even notice we are there.
Having said that we think it’s important to fit in a small handful of family groups (around 15 mins should be plenty) plus some time for a selection of portraits of you both as a newly married couple; we’ll normally use the grounds of your venue for this and again 15-20 minutes should be ample. For the rest of the day, we hope you’ll enjoy spending it celebrating with friends and family, and we’ll be there to capture it for you.
Your images should be timeless. No awkward poses or dated Photoshop filters. Just beautiful, storytelling wedding photography that will never go out of style.
We prefer our photographs to do the talking, so to speak, and our portfolio is just a short scroll down the page. If this is your first visit to our site, this is the best place to start.
If you have any questions or would like to check your date for availability, please get in touch.
About Our Wedding Photography
There are many genuine and beautiful moments which take place throughout every wedding; the true moments that occur in-between the expected formalities of the day. They are real, unscripted and spontaneous. They capture your personalities, your love, your relationships and human connections – they capture the true spirit of your wedding day. This is what wedding photojournalism means to us and these are the moments we strive to capture at every wedding. When photojournalism and art combine, something magical happens and this is what we believe makes amazing wedding photography.
How We Work
Our two-photographer coverage is designed to record the atmosphere and emotion in a documentary style that really captures the essence of your day. We have photographed over 300 weddings which has enabled us to develop a sixth sense when it comes to anticipating and capturing the moment. We add our personal touch and creative edge, combining our skills and understanding of natural light and composition to produce a stunning collection of storytelling wedding photographs. Please view our slideshow which explains our approach and philosophy in more detail.
We have worked as a team for over ten years. Two photographers on your wedding day can prove to be an enormous benefit in many situations: it means we can be in two places at the same time at the church and drinks reception, or provide two different viewpoints of the same scenario during the formals, bride-and-groom portraits and speeches. We are your eyes for the day and having two pairs means that we don’t miss much of the action!
Your wedding coverage will not be complete without just a small number of posed photographs. In addition to our documentary style we will also shoot a range of stylized ‘bride and groom’ portraits, plus a handful of informal family group photographs to compliment our fly-on-the wall approach.
Each and every image is individually assessed and sprinkled with our personal touch of Photoshop magic so they look fantastic. Our retouching is subtle and mostly used to enhance the original image, much like traditional darkroom hand-printing.
We provide wedding photography throughout the UK.
Collections start from £1850. Please get in touch to check your date and receive more info.

The photos are stunning! We love how you’ve caught more than just images…it’s a real picture storyboard of our special day. More like watching a video than looking at stills. You’ve truly captured the essence of the day with all the emotions we, and our guests, felt, and we just want to say a huge thank you for that… I’m not very comfortable in front of the camera (really don’t like having my photo taken!), but you really put us at ease and that comes across in the images. We’ll be singing your praises for years to come!
Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for capturing our day perfectly! Each photo tells a story of laughter, happiness, family, friendships and love. We couldn’t have asked for more, they’ve definitely exceeded our expectations! When we first got engaged, my main hope for the wedding, apart from the getting married bit, was that everyone looked back and said what a wonderful day that was, and looking at these photos I’m pretty sure that it’s mission accomplished! Thanks again, Nia + Tom
Thank you so, so much. The photographs are amazing. We absolutely love them!!! You really have captured the magic of the day.
We can’t tell you how much we love the photos.
We are excited to see the lovely Rhiannon and Matthew’s wedding featured on BRIDES website
