Philip Bedford Wedding Photography - I’m a Wedding Photographer providing wedding photography across the whole of Southern England. I photograph weddings using a creative and fun approach to help you feel relaxed whilst being photographed. I work in a subtle and discreet way, shooting candid wedding photography and capturing things as they happen throughout the day and blending into the wedding festivities. As a reportage style wedding photographer, I aim to create a relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy having your photograph taken in.
Your wedding is unique, and although wedding photography should be a part of the day it shouldn’t interfere with the rest of your wedding plans. We’ll work together to get beautiful pictures of you both, capturing all the details of your wedding day in a reportage/candid style as well as getting the family together for a few formal (or informal) group shots.
I look for photo opportunities and locations around your wedding venue, and then place you in a gorgeous place for the perfect composition. I always aim to avoid any awkwardness of posing for photos, and to make things relaxed and informal, and then get you to just do your own thing and enjoy each other’s company; encouraging laughter, tender moments and a bit of silliness for natural shots and beautiful smiles. I definitely won’t order you around or pose you like a supermodel, but I will make small changes to the pose or photograph to ensure you look incredible in your wedding photographs.
We’ll plan your wedding photography into the schedule of the day, and I’ll be keeping an eye on the light and the weather, and when golden hour begins or perhaps, we get a quick downpour, I’ll capture awesome photographs of you both together in an amazing atmosphere. I love the amazing light at the golden hour or sunset, but I enjoy working in challenging wet weather too!
I hope that my portfolio will inspire you to get in touch but if you’re not quite convinced, have a look at my testimonials page to see some kind words that other brides and grooms have said about my wedding photography. You could also check out my Google and Facebook reviews.
I’ve worked in the wedding industry for over 10 years and photographed over 200 weddings and I’ve learnt what works well to integrate photography into the wedding day. I will be happy to chat to you about timings of the day and offer any advice you need about your wedding photography and can recommend some great suppliers, depending on your style of wedding.

The Perfect Photographer
We chose Philip as our wedding photographer as he had done our friends wedding and we thought the photographs were stunning. From the moment we met Phil, he was really lovely and very professional. He was always willing to accommodate our needs, even up until the day before the wedding when I changed the time of our wedding photography.Sent on 11/02/2019
Phil fit in to our wedding day perfectly and we had many people commenting on how lovely he was. He really listened to our needs and our photos were absolutely perfect and exactly what we wanted.
I would certainly recommend Phil to anyone looking for a photographer.

More than exceeded expectations - highly recommended!
To say that we were happy with Phil as our wedding photographer would be a massive understatement.Sent on 07/08/2017
From the first moment we contacted him and let him know that we needed a photographer, Phil has been meticulous with details, quick to respond to all enquiries, and in plenty of detail, and always prepared to offer suggestions that will enhance the final product.
In the lead up to the wedding, Phil asked for lots of details, which we were happy to provide. This gave us a sense of trust in him, in anticipation that the care he dedicates to his paperwork is replicated in his photographs.
On the day, Phil got the balance between being assertive enough to make sure he got the perfect photographs, and discreet when we were letting our hair down, perfectly.
We sat with a glass of wine and amongst friends to view our photos for the first time the other night, and it was quite an emotional experience. My wife and I are demanding people, who have a high attention to detail, and we said that these were the best wedding photographs that we have seen.
We are very, very happy customers, and would recommend him highly!
Beautiful Photography capturing our day so Perfectly
Phil is a brilliant wedding photographer. Right from when we first met for a meeting to discuss ideas and packages, Phil never pressured us into anything and never gave us the hard sell. He is very kind and patient and super professional as well as being a genius with his work. I was very comfortable being around Phil especially as I “hate” being in front of the camera but Phil was great at putting me at ease and was great on the day even at one point helping us coordinate the bridesmaids! Thank you for capturing the day so beautifully.Sent on 06/11/2019
