London Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our London wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in London, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple London elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA London photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, London documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

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 pop-up, themed, courthouse, 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 non-traditional, modern, unique, 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.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND London WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

We received your wonderful gift of a USB stick yesterday and cannot thank you enough for what was within! They are just amazing - all of them. Just breathtakingly stunning! I cried when I viewed some of them as it was like re-living the day all over again (I cried then too of course). We are so pleased. I have had to look at them again and again as each time I do, I see more and more, which is an incredidle feat to achieve. Your mirror work is outstanding - what a talent. I have sent some to Emma and she is thrilled and even James liked what he saw - which is a first. We now have the task of choosing some favourites which will be very difficult. Thanks again for everything - for the day itself and your wonderful presence, and especially for the pictures which are just phenomenally brilliant. I have *** to thank as he wasn't available and recommended you, so if you see him do tell him. What a find you were, so pleased he was booked (don't tell him that bit!) Thanks again and take care and keep up the outstanding work. I shall continue to look at your blog and view your work as I have a deep appreciation of what you produce. In fact, to be able to re-produce emotions through pictures that will last forever is quite unusual and requires skill and talent. I have seen many other photographers sites and some do not really capture it.

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! "
