Elopement Photographers for Small Suffolk Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Suffolk 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 DIY - do it yourself, secret, 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 boutique, symbolic, intimate, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Suffolk wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Suffolk wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Suffolk wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Suffolk wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: Who are the best Suffolk wedding photographers for small elopements?
A: The WPJA is proud to have some of the top Suffolk documentary wedding photographers for elopements. Our members are able to submit WedElope Stories that take you step-by-step, via a 9 image picture story, through the unique and moving elopements that take place around the world.
WPJA Communiqué: Featured Wedding Photography Articles
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
WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

Hi Dominic, I wanted to say a huge thank you for helping to make Sophie and Chris’s day so special. As Mum, I hugely appreciated your calm, discreet and valuable input into the day. The photos are truly lovely and so captured the essence of who they both are. Donna (Mother Of The Bride)

We just want to say a really huge THANK YOU for providing Chris and Livi with so many beautiful reminders of a truly magical day. Despite the rather rubbish weather you truly excelled in being in the right place at the right time and, as always, capturing that precious moment in time whilst seeming so unobtrusive. Not only did you stay for the entire day but also most of the night! Plus giving up time to return on the Monday evening to take those extra, sunny and relaxed shots shows a dedication far beyond what most would contemplate. We are all so very glad we chose you to immortalise The Day and I will continue to promote your work to any couples I can. Gunilla (Mother of the Groom)

Thank you so much for our beautiful photographs - we are so pleased and have enjoyed looking through them over and again. You captured the day perfectly and it's been great to look back through your photos and see all those moments we didn't have a chance to take in at the time. On the day you were calming and we hardly noticed you are there (in a good way!). You made us feel as ease and relaxed which really shows in the photos!
