About Graham Warrellow Photography

Your wedding story captured as natural, timeless and beautiful documentary wedding photography
Hi!  I'm a wedding photographer based in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire but more than happy to travel within the UK or beyond.  I'd love the opportunity to tell your love story by capturing moments of happiness and emotion through my photography.  I work in an unobtrusive and friendly way and do everything possible to produce a timeless story that you and future generations will cherish.  My aim is to make you smile, feel emotional and maybe even shed a tear when you see your photos for the first time, and again when you look at them in ten years time!
I offer couples a complimentary engagement shoot as a great way to get to know one another before your big day in a relaxed and fun session.   All my Collections include a beautiful slideshow of your photos, a web gallery of your photos for you to share with friends and family, coverage from bridal preparations through to first dance and beyond, and all your beautifully edited photos in colour and black and white on a customised USB.  I also offer a range of the most gorgeous Queensberry wedding albums for your consideration.
Please get in touch with some information about your wedding plans and I'll send you my latest brochure for you to browse through.  I look forward to hearing from you!

  • "Perfect photos and outstanding service."
    Monique on 10 March 2019

    We got married on 6th September 2019. Wonderful, is the only way we can describe Grahams beautiful photos of our wedding. After months of researching photographers we chose Graham because we really loved the way Graham's photos captured the exact moments without being staged like other photographers, Graham spent time with us before the wedding & this really helped to put my husband's nerves at ease. Graham has a great way of making you feel really comfortable & relaxed. This meant that on the actual wedding day, we could both relax & enjoy time with our friends & families, while Graham captured some amazing wedding shots of us. Graham was the first to arrive at the villa on our wedding day which allowed Graham to get set-up & get some great photos of us all getting ready together. Planning a wedding abroad is quite hard work, especially if you decide like us not to use a wedding planner (in the back of your mind you worry things won't go to plan & worry that people won't arrive on your big day) however I didn't have any fears with graham, we had constant contact with Graham right up until the big day, which for any bride is a massive weight off your shoulders. After the wedding Graham started to send us a few photo's each day & we were so blown away with just how perfect they were. We now have a fabulous pre-wedding photo shoot, over 600 beautiful wedding photos, and a wonderful wedding video filled with love of family & friends. We could ask for anything more, it was perfect. Working with Graham has been such a pleasure for us and we now have the most amazing photos for a lifetime to treasure. xxx xxx Mr & Mrs Gascoyne

    Wow! I’m blushing! Thank you so much for all your very kind words, they mean so much to me. You are a very special couple and your love for one another certainly made my ‘job’ so much easier. You all made us feel so welcome - your amazing wedding day at Pedruxella Gran will stay with us forever. It has been such an enormous privilege to meet you both and to have been your wedding photographer. Wishing you every happiness for your future together. With love, Graham & Mary xx

  • "Best decision we made!"
    Sinead on 18 January 2019

    I read a lot on the reviews on Hitched when planning our wedding so it seems only right to write my own review in return. I’d seen 3 or 4 photographers I liked on Hitched and the plan was to meet with all of them before making a decision. However once we met with Graham and his lovely wife Mary we didn’t look any further and booked him straight away! Graham is so passionate about his photography but he was so friendly and personal. Both Graham and Mary put us completely at ease from the first time we met them. Graham made the whole process easy and hassle free from the booking, to the engagement shoot, to the wedding itself and then editing and selecting photos for our slideshow and album. Graham was constantly at the end of a phone or an email to answer any questions. He listened to our suggestions and helped us make our album really personal. The quality of his work is second to none and we have a wonderful selection of engagement and wedding photos which we will always treasure. Booking Graham was the easiest (and best!) decision we made and we would have no hestitation in recommending him to others. Sinead and Tom (married June 2018)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

I offer everything from a beautiful digital-only Collection priced from £1,450 through to Collections that include a stunning Queensberry wedding album. Full details of the Collections including pricing can be found on my website under 'Investment'

What services do you offer?

My primary focus is as a wedding and engagement photographer. I offer clients digital Collections through to high quality Queensberry wedding albums. All my clients receive a professional slideshow of their photos and are offered a complimentary engagement or pre-wedding shoot. I'm also open to do a post-wedding shoot or open to consider any specific requests.

What does the wedding package include?

Please take a look at the Investment page on my website for full details. I can of course provide you with a bespoke quotation depending on your specific requirements. Just get in touch and I'll do my best to help. The most important thing is that I am there to photograph your whole day from bridal prep through to first dance and beyond. I don't count hours. All my collections include a beautiful set of individually edited photos supplied in both colour and black and white, all supplied on a customised USB. All photos are also loaded on to a private web gallery so that you can share them with friends and family anywhere in the world. I also offer a complimentary engagement photoshoot.

How far in advance should I contact you?

I shoot weddings both in the UK and abroad so often synchronise dates depending on my location. The earlier I can schedule your date the more likely it is that we can cover your special day. This is particularly true for weekends.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

That would be impossible for me as I spend 10+ hours on each wedding I photograph. Everything from bridal prep through to first dance and beyond.

Are you able to travel?

I am happy to travel throughout the UK and overseas to photograph weddings.

What style of photos do you take?

My natural style is often described as documentary or reportage style wedding photography. If you are looking for natural, timeless photography with an emphasis on capturing special unposed moments then this is the style you are after. I believe that it is these moments that best tell the story of your day and help you to relive the emotion, fun and love you experienced. I work in a friendly and unobtrusive way and am sometimes mistaken for one of the guests! We will also arrange to take the couple away from the wedding party for around 30 minutes to obtain some more intimate couple photos around or near to the venue. This is a very relaxed affair and I will only semi-direct you in to beautiful light or to slightly improve a pose if I see something untoward in the frame! I also take group photos but try to keep these to a minimum as they often break the flow of the day.

What kind of technology do you use?

I used to be a scientist and inventor so I'm a bit of a technology geek. If it makes sense to use it then I'll have it in my bag!

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I am always looking out for special moments between the bride and groom and their friends and family. My wife is my assistant at weddings and she is my second pair off eyes. I am always looking to create something a little creative if you are up for it whether in an unusual location or by using off-camera flash techniques.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use a pair of the latest Canon 5D MkIV cameras together with a range of professional L-series lenses for most of my photography. Although I love to photograph with natural light, I also specialise in off-camera flash techniques and use the latest Canon wireless flash equipment. I use specialist portable sound recording equipment if the couple would like to have the ceremony and speeches recorded. For editing your photos, I use a mixture of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and Premiere Pro for editing a beautiful slideshow set to music of your photos. All photos are backed-up on an external drive and on to a web gallery. My wedding albums are supplied by a New Zealand-based company called Queensberry who are recognised as being one of the best worldwide.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

All the high resolution colour and black and white photos and slideshow are loaded on to a password-protected web gallery for you to share with friends and family anywhere in the world. They are free to download for sharing or printing.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

This is very dependent on the time of the year but we aim to have the editing complete within 6 weeks. I do all the editing myself with care and do not rush this stage as I want to ensure the client receives the best possible product. I offer all my clients a 'Photo-a-Day' so that you will start to receive a selection of your photos within a few days of your wedding for a period of 7 days. My clients love this! It's a little something extra to look forward to each day while you are away on honeymoon and you can start to share your memories on social media if you wish.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I pride myself on individually editing a selection of the best photos from your wedding in both colour and B&W. Depending on the wedding, I might take anywhere between 1,500-2,000 photos so my first job is to edit out unflattering photos, photos that are near duplicates, and photos that are technically off in some way. The collection of photos I supply will fully represent your special day in every way and will number around 500+, sometimes many more. I take around 100 of these photos to make your slideshow and if you wish to have an album then this is way more than any customer will ever need. My focus is always on quality over quantity.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I usually work with my wife who acts as my assistant on the day, and as my second pair of eyes! She's particularly good at remembering everyone's name too which helps with our friendly approach during weddings. For particularly demanding weddings I am able to dip in to a pool of second shooters if this might be required. I find that working as the sole photographer allows for a more unobtrusive approach though my wife occasionally adds some amazing photos herself that are added to the collection.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Fortunately, fingers crossed, this has never happened. But, if I was ever unable to attend a wedding, I have access to a large pool of like-minded wedding photographers who would be able to stand in for me. I would still undertake to do all the editing and follow-on contact with the client.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

I am there to photograph your whole wedding so do not count hours. We leave when we feel that there are no further useful photographic opportunities.

What are the forms of payment?

I usually prefer payment via a bank transfer. A £350 booking fee will secure your date with the remaining balance payable 1 month prior to the wedding date.

How do you work?

My clients tell me that I work in an unobtrusive and friendly way. I am always looking to capture special moments and add a creative twist. In the end, it's your day and I do everything possible to ensure that any requests are met. I am there to capture memories, not direct your day!

Where can I find more information?

Please visit my website at for more detailed information about my pricing (under Investment), further background information (under FAQ), or if you would just like to take a look at some of my recent blog posts. Some of these include a highlights version of the featured wedding which I would encourage you to watch. If you can't find what you are looking for here or on my website then please do get in touch and I'll do my best to help.
