About Wedding Photography by Simon Cardwell

Well, I don’t like posing for photos. So I am guessing you probably don’t either?

Good, because I wouldn’t dream of making you spend your wedding day posing for photos for hours on end with a cavalcade of extended family members.

I work in a natural & relaxed style, so the vast majority of the photos will be unposed. Of course I am very happy to take any posed pictures you or your guests would like throughout the day, however I will not be taking over your wedding day.

It is important to spend time with your guests on the day so I aim to get any formal photos done quickly & efficiently. 

You can forget about the photography & leave it to me, I will document the story of your wedding day without interfering with the flow of the big day.

How Do I Work?

In my career I have realised the photography is half the job of a good wedding photographer. The other half is people skills, whether it’s putting the bride at ease when I arrive, calming people down when they have pre-speech nerves, getting on with the kids or taking the time to make sure they parents & families have the photos they want from the day.

One of the reasons I like photographing weddings is people are happy & you see everyone at their best. Who wouldn’t want to document that? I’m not sure I could think of a better workplace.

When you receive the pictures you can relive the whole day again as well as many moments you missed along the way.

It is your day & I aim to document it as unobtrusively as possible.

I am based in London but I work nationwide. I regularly work in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex, Oxfordshire & anywhere else. 

I also love covering weddings abroad occasionally and I am happy to discuss these on an individual basis. 

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.

    Very happy

    Fantastic photos, captured the day just as we wanted, relaxed, unstaged and and made everyone feel completely at ease. Simon meet with us beforehand and talked through the plan for the day, he caught some great moments from the day and showed us and our guests in their best light, we are very happy with the results.

    Fantastic natural photos

    My husband and I were very impressed with simon, he did an amazing job and we have fantastic photos.
    From the minute I spoke to Simon on the phone to when we met on the morning of my wedding I knew I made the right choice. Simon is very friendly, approachable and made everyone feel comfortable.
    He was great from the minute he got to the house to do some pre-wedding shots, at the church and the venue until the first dance. we have some fantastic natural photos of the bridesmaids, best men and my husband and I together.
    Many people at the wedding commented on how good he was.
    We can’t thank him enough for giving us amazing memories that we can cherish forever.
    As such I highly recommend Simon Cardwell.
