Wessex Wedding Photography, based on the borders of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire in the south west of England, was set up by award- winning photographer Paul Quayle, and the now-retired John Burton. Unlike most wedding photographers Wessex Weddings also gives you a disk of the high resolution images.This means that if you want to you can print your own wedding photos at a sensible price and send copies to friends for them to print as well. Wessex Weddings specialise in contemporary reportage wedding photography and in trying to 'tell the story' of your wedding day. Click here for the Wedding Ideas article.
Although I'm based in the Wessex area I have set up a small team of professional photographers that are based in Cornwall, Devon, and Hampshire. Wessex Weddings can provide two photographers at each wedding in order to capture both the details and the atmosphere of your big day. I also offer a one photographer option.
PRICES FROM £585 FOR 5 HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
Amateurs can do it cheaper but why take the risk, as the bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory.
See prices page for more details.
The gallery pages show our best images taken over several years, but if you are a bridal couple and want to know what a full-day photo coverage looks like and how the images are presented please contact me for access to the clients area sections as this zone is password protected. I have photographed at many of the wedding venues in the south-west of England so again contact me with your chosen venue and I'll give you access to view the images I have taken there, or view my blog page for images taken at many of the wedding venues in the South West and beyond.
So if you've booked, say, Athelhampton House and are intrigued to see photos of a wedding at this Dorset venue don't hesitate in contacting me.
Ultimately which wedding photographer to use comes down to personal choice and who you feel comfortable with. Some seem stuck in the 'formal posed' mode. Others seem to go for a lot of black and white images; which seems to be a current trend. Wessex Weddings will endeavour to provide you with the photos that YOU want. So whether you want traditional wedding photographs or contemporary reportage wedding photography - we can help.
I always like to meet couples first if possible, and can travel to meet prospective clients.I'm located just off the A303 near Wincanton and I'm very close to a number of wedding venues in Somerset like Holbrook House, Yarlington House, and Chaffeymoor Grange.
Wessex Weddings has tried to bring a fresh approach; in that we charge a basic fee, that is time-based, for attending a wedding and there are no additional must-have add-ons. After editing and preparing your images they are uploaded to your own online password-protected gallery for friends and relatives to view. We will also send you, unlike most photographers who require that all prints etc. are bought from them, all the edited images (cropped and adjusted for exposure etc) on CD at high resolution so that you can use them as you wish. That's correct, we provide free disks of high resolution jpegs of your wedding photos for you to use as you wish (except sell commercially). Many other photographers charge hundreds of pounds extra to give you the high resolution files. You can make copies for friends, they are yours to do as you wish (other than publish commercially). Please see our prices for wedding photography for further options.
We find that many people these days are perfectly competent at putting together their own album or DVD if they want. Prints, extra photoshop work, canvas prints, albums etc. are all priced separately and available if you want. However, there is absolutely no hard sell or requirement to buy anything further from Wessex Weddings. Contact us for Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire Wedding Photography should you wish to discuss your wedding photography.
By working from my home in Somerset (and not running an expensive city shop/studio!) I offer value -for-money wedding photography to the nearby areas of Blandford, Sturminster Newton, Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Sherborne, Yeovil, Stalbridge, Wareham, Wincanton, Bournemouth and Poole. Wessex Weddings have reduced our costs not our quality. All Wessex Wedding photographers hold full public liability insurance in line with best professional practice.
Our passion is not just to "take the pictures" but to capture your wedding story. Our two photographer coverage means that we have the advantage of literally "being in two places at once." While one photographer will capture all of the action and emotion leading up to the arrival of the bride at the ceremony the other photographer will be attending to the groom, the best man and the guests arriving. Also one photographer organises the "formals" while the other captures the guests reactions in an informal way. Our wedding photography clients love this added coverage. Wessex Weddings is one of the few wedding photography companies that actually can provide two professional wedding photographers. There are some "photographers" that are husband and wife teams, but invariably one is more of an assistant rather than both being full-time working professionals. Wessex Weddings provides the best value wedding photography in the region. But don't just take our word for it; if you wish to speak to some of our clients let us know and we'll try and put you in touch with them. See more testimonials.
