Why choose us?

We are proud to be true Gay Wedding and Civil Partnership specialists. Our galleries show you the vast range of events we have covered, all over the UK.

Our clients' feedback say it all: see our Testimonials section.
When planning your (gay) wedding or civil partnership, choosing your photographer is one of the most important decisions you will have to make: when your day is gone, it's gone, and, apart from each other (thankfully!) and your wedding rings (unless you lose them in the washing-up bowl or on the beach!), your photographs will be the only thing you'll have left to remember and relive your special day for the rest of your lives, and to contribute to your family history. So we feel it's important we explain what we're about and how we work with our couples, because this determines the quality of our service.

We are GENUINE Gay Wedding and Civil Partnership specialists, we are gay ourselves, and we have recently converted our civil partnership to a marriage. We understand gay relationships: with us, you can be yourselves, relax and enjoy your day, and that shows on your photos. Experience is priceless, and we have become experts at handling the dynamics of a gay wedding - we passionately believe and know from experience that photographing a same-sex wedding is not the same as photographing a straight wedding.

We have photographed nearly 200 gay weddings and civil partnerships so far since 2006 (that's a lot!), and in our experience every event is different. We thrive on this. Your uniqueness is our speciality: your relationship is unique, your day is special to us too.

All in all, we invest about a week's work in each full-day wedding or civil partnership we photograph: for us, and hopefully for you, quality matters more than anything. To do so, we work with you before, during, and after your wedding:

BEFORE your Wedding or CP:

Thorough preparation is crucial and ensures you get the best possible coverage of your event. This phase of our work with you also enables us to get to know each other so you're completely relaxed with us (and the camera) when your big day comes.

1. MEETING: We have a preparation meeting with you: ideally in your own home, to discuss your day in more detail - several couples have suggested we also call ourselves CP/Wedding Planners, as our vast experience as gay wedding photographers helps you plan your special day! This meeting also enables us to determine what kind of photos you want and how we can best meet your requirements. Most couples nowadays favour a reportage-style of coverage, which tells a story of the day, sometimes with some formal pictures as well. We'll also show you our vast range of sample albums, wall displays and other products.

2. VENUE(S): We do a survey and recce of your venue(s): As well as planning where we're going to take your photos, we make contact with the staff organizing your Wedding or Civil Partnership (we like to work WITH your venue so everything goes smoothly!).

3. PRE-WEDDING SHOOT: We offer you an optional pre-wedding shoot: this can take place anywhere, at home, in your favourite park, at your venue...

DURING your Wedding or CP:

4. PROFESSIONALS: There will be two people in attendance on your day (Evelyne, the photographer, and Sue, her assistant as well as partner) and we are both gay wedding experts. From contemporary reportage, natural and spontaneous, to more traditional pictures, or a mixture of both, we will provide quality and stylish photography of your very special day. If you do require some more formal, posed pictures, we keep the posing time to a minimum. Throughout your day, we always aim to capture the moments, details, expressions, moods and emotions you will want to revisit for years to come – most of these you will probably have been too busy or excited to notice at the time!

We also provide you with a superior service: thorough and professional, friendly and approachable, non-intrusive but efficient, ethical and respectful and, most importantly, flexible… Our approach puts our clients and their guests at ease and you can completely rely on us to capture the essence and story of your big day - but rather than hearing it from us, you may want to read the feedback from our clients and their guests, which says it all (see our Testimonials section).

We never take more than one booking for a given date, so you don't need to worry in case things run over... we won't be rushing off to photograph somebody else!

We carry spares of all our equipment and we are fully insured.

AFTER your Wedding or CP:

5. Post-production:Having taken an unlimited number of high resolution digital photographs, we then process and enhance them digitally, and create a unique record of your day. This would usually include a mixture of colour and black and white pictures, tailored to meet your tastes (this is one of the reasons why the pre-wedding meeting is so important!).

6. USB: Your photos are presented on a USB. They are ALL print-ready: high resolution, fully edited, digitally enhanced, non-watermarked and copyright-released for personal use. We also include a non-watermarked, low resolution version of each image for viewing purposes, and a watermarked low resolution version for social media use (the watermark helps protect your privacy by discouraging thieves from using the images without your agreement).

7. WEB GALLERY: We also post your photos on a personal password-protected website gallery. We give you and your guests password-bearing cards so you can view the photos of your special day and order superior-quality prints online.

8. ALBUMS & WALL DISPLAYS: We offer a wide range of individually designed and beautifully crafted contemporary books and albums, classic digital albums, bespoke Italian storybooks, framed prints, arts prints, canvasses and other wall displays. They come in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to most tastes and enable you to relive and share the moments and emotions of your special day for years to come. We'll show you samples when we meet up with you before your wedding.

£250 deposit secures your date in our diary and your balance is due one month before your wedding.

Please note that although we can confirm our availability by email, it will be very difficult to give you a more precise quote without talking about your day in greater detail with you on the phone.

So, if you do like our work, ring us now at no obligation on 07914 070768 to check our availability and for an individual quote.
