Elopement Photographers for Small England Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Cornwall 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.

Members are ready to document any justice of the peace, civil ceremony, secret, 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 unique, romantic, non-traditional, 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.

West Sussex wedding photography and elopements by Jenny Rutterford | United Kingdom and England WPJA

Hi, I’m Jenny, a UK documentary wedding photographer living by the sea in West Sussex. I’m passionate about capturing moments, and can happily people-watch for hours, camera in hand. My version of your wedding story is created through emotion, how you felt as you said your vows, the interactions of family and friends, the tears of joy and the laughter. I’m friendly and relaxed and pride myself on being unobtrusive and making everyone feel at ease. In a former life, I’ve been an assistant editor, marketing consultant and trust fundraiser for a homeless persons charity. A 5-year move to America with my family gave me the perfect opportunity to turn my hobby into my dream career. Twelve years on, I still get excited about each and every wedding I become a part of, and challenge myself creatively to capture truly unique images for every single one of my couples. I’m a real foodie with a love of travel and when I’m not creating wedding memories, enjoy nothing more than exploring new places with my husband and our two talented and funny teenagers. And home wouldn’t be home without Einstein and Echo, our playful British Blue Shorthair cats. So that’s a bit about me. If I sound like your kind of person, please get in touch - I’d love to know a bit about you and the person you’re planning to spend the rest of your life with. [West Sussex Wedding Photographer]

I'm a Devon based multi-award-winning photographer shooting wherever needed for the right couple. If what I do suits you I can be there if you want me. My approach is people-centric - the wedding is all about the people, and the celebration for me. At the end of the day, my intention is to create a record for you, a description of what the day felt like from the inside. The pictures should be a reflection of who you are so that when you (or your kids in years to come) look at them you see yourself at your wedding, not some cutout couple at a generic wedding that looks like something straight out of a bridal blog.

Manuel is a wedding and portrait photographer. He has been a professional photographer for over 10 years but his passion resides by photographing couples on their big day. He loves photographing people capturing memories not only images. Every wedding is photographed by Manuel and Giles as a two photographer team. They started photography based on friends demand to photograph family reunions and weddings, photographing the people they love. They didn't want to be the typical wedding photographer. They just want to document their day in a natural way and make them look incredible. [Devon Wedding Photographer]

WPJA Communiqué: Features
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion. Who, then, could be more important than...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more
Clean background in this photo of the bride walking into her mountain ceremony.
Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
