Elopement Photographers for Small London Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small London 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.

England WPJA members are ready to document any fast, 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 unique, romantic, symbolic, 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.

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.

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 .

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.

We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "

Dear Lyndsey, As journalists, Tommy and I work with world class photographers on a daily basis. Yet it's not everyday we get back from a shoot to the joy of discovering that the photographer has captured moments and perspectives that we didn't even know were there, allowing us to tell a better story. Those are the good days...and you made our wedding the best day of all. Your photos are full of wonderful surprises, thoughtful moments, and beautiful compositions. Thank you for capturing our day in a way that goes hand in hand with our experience of it, and will forever illustrate our memories. Plus you were such a pleasure to work with! We couldn't be more thrilled, thank you. Thank you again, Justine

Clive, We got back late Wednesday evening and saw your email - we couldn't resist watching the slideshow of all 739 photos! Safe to say we were exhausted at work on Thursday, but it was so worth it! We fell in love with the photos and the day all over again. Thank you so much for the priceless memories you have captured of the best day of our lives! We will recommend you to everyone we know. You're such a professional, talented but chilled out guy! Your style of photography fits perfectly with our relaxed day! Thank you so much xx
