Based in Hertfordshire, Den Helder Weddings is part of Den Helder Studio. I work all over the Home counties of Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Suffolk and Kent and further afield. I do not charge travel for weddings taking place in the UK.

My unobtrusive approach, allows me to photograph your big day as it develops, capturing the moments and details as they happen, recording those moments between you both, without forced posing (except if you want some help in the couple's portraits :)

The aim is to blend in with your wedding, as if one of your guests, photographing everything going on in a documentary style. My job is also to capture those moments you don't see as a wedding couple by hopefully being in the right place at the right time. I do have an eye for a portrait having a studio photography background... and love to get those wow! images in the mix also if you choose to, that is. I will help you with the poses and look you want, to get those all important images. If you don't want that, i am equally as happy, capturing those cherished natural moments betwen you both and your guests, and lets not forget the dance floor. I don't leave after the first dance :)

Services Offered

Full day - Couples prep to the reception and dancing. I dont leave after the first dance.

Digitally perfected images, a slideshow and a private website gallery of your wedding photographs.

Micro wedding packages available from 4hrs.

Luxury albums and a second photographer are available for those larger weddings and those who want the ultimate service.

I am also a UK qualified drone operator and can offer drone photography as a service.

Outstanding service from Pele and Den Helder!

Pele from Den Helder was the photographer for our wedding. From booking to finished product Pele was outstanding.

In the lead up to the wedding we met with Pele to talk about our requirements and what was important to us. Pele had also sent through a helpful questionnaire to prompt us in really thinking about what we would like.

Pele really took the time to get to know us and his knowledge and expertise were evident and we felt calm and at ease.

Whenever we had a question, query or idea, Pele was incredibly responsive.

I could not speak any higher of Pele and Den Helder. We were amazed with how efficiently the photographs were turned around and how they captured the whole day. Pele really made our day special and couldn't have been more professional, helpful and accommodating. All of our guests spoke of his friendliness and approachability.

Book Pele for your day before someone else does!

Look no further than Pele

Spoke to Pele on the phone who responded to our email request quickly. after a ten minute chat, we knew Pele would be good for our day. On the day, it was pouring but Pele still managed to get great shots, wasn't intrusive, super polite and he has captured our day perfectly - I would highly recommend and we cant thank him enough.
