Elopement Photographers for Small England Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small England wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

United Kingdom WPJA members are ready to document any civil ceremony, courthouse, themed, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your romantic, intimate, boutique, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered. The emphasis is on documenting key moments, capturing spontaneous displays of emotion, telling your real love story, as well as creating artistic portraits and details.

WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day.

We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "

The 'newlywed' shots are simply stunning - it's hard to choose which to frame. In my view, the photos are one of the most important parts of a wedding because they inform many of your memories for years to come. When we look back now, and when we look back in the future, the photos will instantly bring back the warmth and happiness we felt on that perfect day in Provence. And for that, we can't thank you enough, Damion.

Dear Jamie, we wanted to say thank you for your professionalism and your talent on our wedding day. Our wedding pictures are all we could hope for and much more. Our families and friends made great comments about the spontaneous, unposed style of your pictures. Even if our wedding was the center of the attention, all of our guests had some great portraits done by you. Before the big day, you reviewed the locations and asked us the right questions. On the day, you have been quite invisible, very flexible, accommodating and professional. We will definitely recommend you to any friends looking for a photographer and will use your services in the future for other family events! Again, thanks a lot for your work!.
