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 small, city hall, pop-up, 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, non-traditional, religious, 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.

Dear Harry, Thank you for photographing our wedding day! You really captured the atmosphere and we will treasure the photos and memories. It is lovely to have such great images, even more so as you were so adept at being in the right place at the right time, without us even knowing you were there! Many thanks, Sarah & Richie. x
