Celebrity wedding photographer

Your venue, dress, flowers, and cake can all look perfect on the day, but it’s the skilful shooting, expert lighting and thoughtful composition of your wedding photographer that will shape the memories of the day as you look back on your wedding for years to come.

As a well-known Celebrity Wedding Photographer from the North West of England, I come to your wedding celebration as an award-winning photographer with more than 15 years of experience.

During this time I have photographed weddings worldwide, won multiple awards and seen my work featured in celebrity magazines such as Hello! and Vogue.

Photography experience

background in the media industry and a degree in body language has given me an incredible gift to be able to visualise the finished photo in my mind before I’ve pressed the shutter.

This enables me to create artistic images and to pre-empt and capture unscripted fleeting moments of emotion.

This unique skill coupled with my professionalism and enthusiasm has seen me featured on TV as a ‘celebrity wedding photographer’ and providing photography for Liverpool and Everton football players.

In 2016 my ability to capture emotion caught the attention of the UK’s biggest-selling classical artist, opera star Russell Watson; who commissioned me to photograph his destination wedding.

The wedding was featured in a HELLO! Magazine exclusive and described as –  “A Fairytale Wedding Album.”  Read the feature article Here.

This celebrity wedding was also listed in the “50 most memorable celebrity weddings of the decade” in Hello! Magazine.

Complimentary skills

During my time as a photographer, I have had the privilege of photographing the concerts and live performances of many celebrities.

These include artists such as Paul Weller, Rock Group U2, Morrissey, Richard Ashcroft, Pink and more.

Having the experience of photographing at such prestigious live events gives my wedding clients the confidence that I have the knowledge, skill and education to deal with the pressure of capturing the moments that truly matter on the biggest day of their lives.

What’s more interesting is my documentary style of wedding photography and ability to capture emotion has crossed over and appealed to A-list clients who have invited me to exclusively photograph personal aspects of their work, lives and behind the scenes.

The best wedding photographers in England

Due to my ability to capture an emotion, a number of wedding blogs have named me as one of the best wedding photographers in the UK, which is flattering and I guess subjective. But in all honesty, I just love what I do.

When a couple chooses me to photograph their day, I promise to tell their story in a beautiful, fun and authentic way. My focus is on capturing moments that really matter, producing images that will make them laugh, smile and will trigger memories in years to come.”

Celebrity wedding photographer services

It’s a huge honour to be commissioned to photograph the personal and private events in people’s lives and it’s one that I don’t take lightly. When working stylish couples who live life to its fullest, I find they tend to give me more creative freedom and opt for a ‘documentary wedding photography‘ approach to capturing their day (which I love).

With clients like these, every seemingly accidental moment looks fully intentional, and only serves to make their story more inspiring.

A lot of my luxury, celebrity and destination weddings are 3 to 7-day events, so I understand building trust with my clients is important. The process usually starts with a face-to-face consultation or a FaceTime if unable to meet in person before confirming any booking. This is a great way to build rapport and for the clients to view my work first hand.

Privacy and control

As a leading professional celebrity wedding photographer, undertaking high profile and celebrity wedding assignments, I understand the importance of privacy and the need for celebrities, high profile individuals and their representatives to have full control of their imagery.

Some clients do ‘a deal’ with a magazine before the wedding and simply hire me as a personal photographer to photograph their personal and private events others opt for full control, hiring me as their principle ‘in-house’ photographer whereby retaining full control and release of their images.

The photography shared on my website is done so with the consent of those being featured. Privacy and trust are often one of the main factors to why I am chosen to photograph celebrity weddings and this is always discussed with the client prior to any wedding.

Professional photography and storybook albums

I offer the choice of both a ‘digital’ photography service whereby the wedding photographs are presented via digital download together with the choice of bespoke Storybook Wedding Albums. The wedding albums are exclusively designed in-house by Wes Simpson Weddings and printed in Italy by the worlds best manufacturer.
