I am a professional wedding photographer with over 5 years experience of capturing these unique events. I offer a full day package which includes photographs during the morning preparations at the bride's house, photos at the venue and during your ceremony, group photos before the reception and then photographs in the evening including your first dance and beyond. Once processed, all photographs - usually over 400 - will be made available on a USB drive for you to print off as many times as you like with no extra cost. I can also offer advice as to how to make your albums, leaving the actual creation up to you so that they become completely personal. Albums can be created using web based companies for as little as £30 each. I can create an album for you at an additional cost. I am also able to offer the upload of your photos to a password protected area of my website where friends and family can view the photographs from your wedding.
When you book me, you're booking me for your whole wedding day. I'll be there to take photos of you getting ready in the morning, but also there as somebody who has been through the process many times who can offer you advice should you need it. The best photographs are achieved when things run smoothly and you're relaxed, and as your wedding photographer is the vendor you're closest to throughout your day then it's as much my job to make sure everything is going to your plan as it is to capture it on camera. So if you need reminded that the bride should be wearing her engagement ring on her right hand for the ceremony, or that the groomsmen's buttonholes don't actually go through the button hole of their jackets then I'll be there to help you out. I've even been known to help sew a bride into a wedding dress just before the ceremony! Most wedding photographers leave after your first dance, but when it gets dark is when some of my most creative work comes out. I'd rather stay late at your wedding and do your couple portraits in small bite-sized sections so that you have more time to spend with your family and friends, than take you away from your guests for a long period of time.
Full Day's coverage - £1200.

"Dru was absolutely fantastic, he was a real pleasure to have as our photographer. He went out of his way to make us feel at ease and took some fabulous and creative photos that we will cherish forever. He put up with demanding bridesmaids and a groom that couldn't keep his eyes open and he did it all with a smile! Thanks Dru for all your hard work and patience :-)"

"We can not speak highly enough of Dru as a wedding photographer! He arrived early and got some great shots of us getting ready and even stayed until the dancing was well underway! Dru was a relaxing presence and captured some great natural shots of our guests as well as all the group photos we wanted. We love looking back at our wedding photos and Dru was really helpful after the event, sending us the photos really quickly and advising on the best photobooks. We're also big fans of Dru's work in general and have 2 signed prints in pride of place in our house!! Thanks Dru!"

"We have the most wonderful memories of our Wedding Day thanks to Dru! The photographs are amazing! Dru captured every moment perfectly from the formal group shots to the natural ones and he also caught all the little details too! We hardly knew he was there taking so many fabulous pictures and nothing was too much trouble for him. Friends who have looked at our album said that they were some of the best photos they had seen and it was lovely to remember the whole day through Dru's photos! We Thank you so much Dru."
