About Simon Cardwell Photography

Wedding photography documents the happiest time in your life. As a professional wedding photographer, I record those happy moments from your day and make them last so they become something to treasure and look back on for years to come.

I’ve been photographing weddings for over a decade and every single one is different. I believe in a natural style of photography so you won't spend your wedding day constantly posing for photos, I will find the special moments rather than staging them. Just like every other day in your life, nothing on your wedding day should feel forced. 

To make things really simple for my newlyweds, I offer just one full-day package, which means you’ve got me for the whole day from two hours before the ceremony to after the last dance. 

If you’re having a large wedding, I can give you the option to have a second shooter on the day to ensure you don’t miss a single moment.

I also offer a variety of package add-ons, including professionally designed wedding albums and photographic prints so you can commemorate your special day.

I will gladly cover weddings in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and parts of the south east including Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, East & West Sussex, Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire. I grew up in Darlington and regularly work there, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if your wedding is in the north. 

I’ll also cover weddings abroad occasionally (including Central Park in New York and on Mount Etna in Sicily!) and am happy to discuss these on an individual basis - especially if your wedding is in a country I’ve always wanted to visit.

To talk more about your plans for your wedding and to book your consultation, please just drop me a line. I can’t wait to find out more about your day.

  • "The whole experience was brilliant"
    Nicola on 25 November 2019

    We are over the moon at the photographs that Simon took of our wedding. They are far better than I had ever hoped for especially as my husband and I don’t like our photo being taken. From first contact to receiving the photos the whole experience was brilliant, Thankyou Simon!

  • "Truly a wonderful experience"
    Lauren on 25 November 2019

    We were lucky enough to work with Simon on our wedding day and I could not have asked for more beautiful and unique photos. He had a perfectly timed game plan, which we were so grateful for on a whirlwind of a day. Truly a wonderful experience and I hope everyone is lucky enough to have the same. We will forever cherish the photos Simon took.
