The dedicated and highly skilled team lead by Karl Stancliffe, offer you the perfect wedding photography package. We custom design every wedding package to meet your exact requirements. Then when your special day arrives we unobtrusively capture those memories as your day proceeds from the preparations, to the ceremony and onwards into the evening. The end result is a wedding story book that shows your true wedding day as you would want it, from start to finish, meaning you have a beautiful record of your wonderful day you will treasure forever. Contact Karl today for a home or studio consultation.

Our wedding portfolio offers a huge range of options for the bride and groom, meaning we can tailor our packages to suit your exact needs. Our style of photography is relaxed throughout ensuring we capture reportage images during the course of your day. Our stunning album range is also contemporary using the very latest in wedding story books & albums. Each book or album is custom made to your style and with your full interaction throughout the design stage. So if you want a minimalist or classical feel to your album this can just as easily be achieved as a more modern and contemporary style. Our wedding story books are supplied by GraphiStudio of Italy or Jorgensen of Australia, as we believe these are without doubt the world leaders in what they do. Click here to view some of our stunning wedding books from all four seasons…


You, Your Wedding, Your Story

As a husband and wife team and your wedding photography team, we feel your wedding day story is as important to us, as our own wedding day was. We become an integral part of your wedding, before, during and after. Our goal is to be the invisible helper in terms of utilising our vast amount of wedding day experience, our organisation abilities and of course our photographic skills.

This commitment from us means you will feel 100% comfortable come the big day. We will help where needed (we’ve helped put on oh so many wedding dresses and veils), and where not, disappear into the background and capture those special moments as they happen.

We dedicate about 50 hours to every wedding to ensure your wedding is captured to the very best of our abilities. Utilising the best suppliers from around the globe, all fused together to make it, well…   …perfect.


You, Your Wedding, Your Story – Before Your Wedding Day

Long before your wedding day we can plan a date for us to get together and spend some quality time with you, discussing and preparing for your day, by having an engagement photo shoot.

The first objective of the pre-shoot is to have some fun with the camera, and really get that photographic chemistry flowing. This will result in much more natural photographs on the day, as you’ll relax with your photographer and his camera.

During the shoot we will also have a chat about how your planning is going and find out about all those little details that will make your wedding day unique. The more we understand you and your wedding, the better we can tell your story in the photographs we capture.

After the shoot, using Karl’s post production craftmanship, we will create for you a set of natural photographs and place these online for you to view. These are available for purchase in a vast array of options, but many choose to use a pre-shoot images in a signed frame, a personalised photographic guest book or even their wedding invitations.

You, Your Wedding, Your Story – On Your Wedding Day

First and foremost our job is to capture you, your wedding, your story, and not play a part in creating it! After years of practice we think we have the perfect balance of documenting your day with all your guests, and sneaking you off for a few special photographs when the time is right.

As newly weds you’ll really appreciate 15 minutes to take a deep breath and take in your special day before it races past. During this time we’ll create some stunning images of you both in a relaxed and natural way, keeping it romantic and fun.

As for the group shots, which some people may not look forward to, you don’t have to worry with us on hand. Firstly we’ll get everyone organised, then we make it fun. Our objective is to be finished in about 20 minutes so everyone can return to enjoying the celebrations before they realise it.

As your day slowly turns to night, we’ll be there to capture those closing chapters of your wedding story, including that special first dance and perhaps a stunning night shoot.


You, Your Wedding, Your Story – After Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is over, but your wedding story is far from complete. Planned as far back as the pre-shoot, we’ll get together shortly after your honeymoon and you can once again relive that special day through your wedding day photographs.

You’ll then, at your own pace, view all of your wedding day pictures and pick out your favourites, which we are told by brides and grooms is the hardest part. We pride ourselves on capturing so many great moments throughout your wedding day, so many in fact that, narrowing them down is not so easy, but definitely fun.

If you simply can’t live without having all your wedding photographs, then we’ll walk you through the options for using them in an endless array of stunning outputs, from classical or contemporary albums and books, to DVDs, to canvas, and so many more.

Then when your viewing is over, we’ll crack on and get your story book album designed. We’ll also get all those memories online in your private gallery for friends and family to view and buy, from anywhere in the world.
