About One Thousand Words Photography

Hello, we are Tom Wishart & Murray Lambert. We came to work together through a love of creativity and a shared passion for providing stunning, evocative wedding photography that is a notch above the ‘norm’.

We believe that a good wedding photograph is not only a moment captured forever…it should convey the beauty, emotion, the drama and the detail. Our instinctive, unobtrusive approach allows us to observe these moments as they are about to happen and capture them as they unfold.

Our ‘style’ is actually a blend of styles; landscape, portrait, event, documentary, still-life, HDR and experimental photography. We are known not only for our unique, creative style but also for our personal customer service.

Through correspondance, meetings and engagement shoost we like to build a friendly relationship with you before your wedding, helping you to relax in front of the camera and feel comfortable with us being around on your big day. As we are lovely people to boot this isn’t a problem!

We love our job, we love working together and we love take stunning photographs at weddings, making brides look as fabulous they feel.

We are based in Dorset and Hampshire and regularly photograph weddings all over the UK.

  • "You didn't let us down!"
    Kathryn and Robin on 23 March 2017

    One Thousand Words – from the moment we met, you put us instantly at ease and we knew that you would be amazing wedding photographers. You didn’t let us down! Our guests, both young and old, commented during the day (and are still commenting) on how well you fitted in. Tom and Murray, you have captured some incredible images which will allow us to relive our wedding over and over again. Neither Robin or myself like having our photo taken but that wasn’t an issue. At no point were we asked to waste time posing for staged photos yet we have ended up with hundreds (literally hundreds) of fantastic images that we can’t stop looking through! Thank you so much – we recommend you 100x over

  • "We would recommend them to anyone"
    Joe and Jo on 23 March 2017

    We’ve been blown away by the photos Tom and Murray took of our wedding day. Our whole experience with them has been awesome. During the morning, when getting ready, these guys captured the buzz brilliantly. You can tell they have done this hundreds of times before, as they certainly know the drill, keeping our nerves in check while they take everything in their stride with their relaxed attitude and good sense of humour. Then, throughout the ceremony and reception, Tom and Murray worked together amazingly. Most of the time, you wouldn’t even know they were there, but between them they have managed to capture the big moments with split-second precision, and all manner of other tiny details that you wouldn’t even think about yourself, but which capture the happiness of the day and all of our friends and family beautifully. To see the quality of the final photos has been incredible and we keep looking at them again and again. We would recommend them to anyone. Great work, thanks guys! It was a pleasure to have you there.
