Elopement Photographers for Small East Midlands Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Leicestershire 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 courthouse, town hall, mini, 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 modern, casual, outdoor, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered.

Leicestershire Wedding and Elopement Photojournalist Ian Bursill

I was the WPJA's top placed "UK" Wedding Photographer in the 2009 competition and the first ever UK photographer to finish in the top three of the WPJA's International Photographer of the Year competition in that same year. My ethos is to document weddings by simply observing and anticipating moments as they happen throughout the day and to deliver an honest and emotive narrative. This approach enables my couples and their guests to get on and enjoy the wedding without worrying about the photography taking over. Based out of Loughborough, Leicestershire, I'm ideally placed to shoot weddings all over the UK. [Leicestershire Wedding Photographer]

East Midlands and Lincolnshire wedding reportage and elopement photography by Nicholas Haigh of England

Hi, I'm Nick originally from Liverpool but now based out of Lincoln where I live with my partner and two young daughters. Photography started as a hobby for me nearly 11 years ago photographing mostly landscapes, cityscapes & architecture. Whilst I was still serving in the Royal Marines I began the journey into weddings by second shooting and then when I had gained enough experience I decided to take the plunge and start my own Wedding Photography business. I love to shoot weddings in a totally candid, documentary-style not only capturing the emotion of the day but also the FUN and lots of it! Although I'm based in Lincolnshire I also shoot weddings throughout the UK and Europe. [Lincolnshire Wedding Photographer]

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
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures. While that’s understandable, it’s also important to remember the reason you’re getting married in the first place; not for the grand celebration, but because you love each other and want to be together. REMEMBER WHAT'S IMPORTANT You’re in this position now, about to get married, for...Read more
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

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
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. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more

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

Hi Ian, What a day!! Can't believe it has been and gone, it seems like only a blink of an eye that it was the day before the wedding... Thank you so, so much for your time and hard work on Friday making sure you captured everything and that things went smoothly...your head must hurt by the end of the day from watching and anticipating moments; you're so clever how you ensure you capture everything. I was trying not to watch you but it was fascinating to see!! Aside from taking photos, it was lovely to spend the day with you! You're so lovely and such good fun, one of my all time favourite moments was Mark's catalogue pose in the garden!! Oh and laughing when you got the licking the suit moment! Thanks for making us feel so comfortable and at ease. I really had a great morning with the team, it really makes all the difference and sets the tone for the rest of the day. Thanks for all the little things which really helped: putting my mind at ease with my silly hair worries, constantly telling me the time when I felt nervous when it was getting to crunch time, chatting to my mum, helping to fetch things, advice with questions (from all angles!) from the bridal party, oh and finding that all important hair grip on the floor - incredible! ...filling me in on how the lads were... you fitted in a treat, I hope we weren't too mad for you! Everyone thought you were great! Especially my Mum, bless her. So sorry I put the extra pressure on you re the Dad reaction photo, looking back I should have just gone with the flow but at the time thought it was so important to have that one downstairs. I hope you understand. It's weird looking back knowing your day was perfect those things really do fall into insignificance, agh!! It was such a special moment for me being able to walk up to him and see his face, something I'll remember and cherish forever. Thanks for putting up with me!!! Thanks so much for keeping everything running to schedule (I know it was tough at times) and for staying as late as you did. It was sad seeing you go because it hit home that it was very nearly over! I'm so pleased with how the day went though, it really was perfect, so thank you so, so much for everything you did for us on Friday which extends beyond your incredible photography. So, as everyone always says, we can't wait to see the photos! (Take your time, no pressure!) We hope you enjoyed our wedding day too... Thanks so much for everything, Jen and Mark
