About Tony Hailstone Video & Photography



As a hugely experienced wedding videographer and photographer, there are few people in the country that have shot as many weddings as I have. I run a small team of talented individuals who are here to capture your day in the most discreet manner possible.

With my relaxed, friendly approach, I much prefer the unposed, unscripted moments to the carefully (and overly) choreographed and staged productions others produce. I want you to spend time where it's important - with your friends and family - not stuck with me all day on a shoot. In fact, for the videos I produce, you will not have to pose or speak to the camera even once (unless you want to of course!). Perfect for the camera shy. For our photography, I'll mostly adopt that style too but do recognise a need for some formal photos so happy to do these - should you want them that is.

I offer both dual video & photography packages or you can also book one or the other. You are under no pressure to take out both services with us and I frequently work with other suppliers.

With high quality service, fast turnaround and a very friendly demeanour, you can be sure commissioning me for your special day is the right choice. After all, no one likes a bossy photographer, right?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

Photography-only Packages start from £625 (half day) & £900 (full day). We also offer great Luxury Videos Packages and Dual Photo-Video Packages in half and full day options.

What services do you offer?

We offer a range of photographic & video services, including: Wedding Photography & Videography Corporate Video & Photography Product Photography Commercial Video Video Editing Actors Headshots & Showreels Modelling Fitness Photography Family, Couple & Individual Portraits Conference filming General event coverage ...and much, much more

What does the wedding package include?

Our weddings packages have a number of options so you can add or remove anything you want (or don't want). Our full day packages are pretty comprehensive as is but always happy to provide something bespoke if required.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Wedding Photography (and our Luxury Videography) can fill up up to two years in advance. However, don't let that dampen your spirits. We can occasionally provide services at very short notice (even down to days) so please contact us to check. For all other services, please contact us to discuss your needs.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

I only attend one wedding per booking day. I also restrict the amount of bookings I take on each year to provide dedicated service.

Are you able to travel?

Yes. We cover most England & Wales locations at no extra charge. Coastal locations, those at extremes of country, Scotland and International are charged at cost.

What is the charge for travelling?

Please contact us for a quote but as a guide, most central counties are free. The closer to the coast you are, the more likely it is there will be a charge (no more than £100 for all England and Wales addresses). For weddings a little further out (Scotland, Ireland and International) we charge at cost plus a nominal amount for travel time/accommodation.

What style of photos do you take?

I like to shoot mainly in a candid style so hopefully you will feel the most relaxed. We'll do some formal photography too, but again still keeping it light and breezy so it becomes fun and not a chore.

What kind of technology do you use?

For Photography I use a mix of DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras. Editing is done with the latest versions of Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and Capture ONE for truly outstanding Post-Production. For Video, I use mirrorless cameras designed for their small size yet exceptionally high quality footage. I also use discreet microphones for excellent sound (something neglected by many videographers). I purposely keep the camera light so I can move around quickly and blend in rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. For the video editing, I use the latest versions of Adobe Premiere, Adobe Encore, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Audition & Adobe Photoshop to create the final film.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I think our laid back, relaxed approach has served us very well over the years. We have attention for detail but don't want to dominate your day by dragging you all over the place. I think we find the right balance between getting the shots but also just letting you get on with the day.

What kind of equipment do you use?

We use a mix of high quality, large megapixel DSLR technology and mirrorless cameras, with great quality lenses. I always have a back up camera on me just in case!

Do you send all the photos taken?

We send approx 400-500 fully edited photos. We take many more than this but these are typically duplicates or duds (usually people blinking at wrong time!).

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

Our Standard Photography is a single-shooter package although a second photographer can be added (subject to availability). For our dual photo-video packages, it is a team of two with myself taking the Photography and a team member providing the video.

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

I have a networks of contacts in the event of an emergency preventing me from attending a wedding. It would have to be pretty serious though - I broke my ribs at a wedding and I STILL carried on working for the next 8-hours.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

We ask clients allow us to use their photography for any publicity we require. You can opt out of this before the wedding by just dropping us an email. For clients own use, they have full copyright clearance to use photos however they wish. They have no obligation to order prints from us.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event up to a set time allowance, then an hourly rate after that.

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

Yes of course.

How do you charge extra time?

Ideally overtime should be pre-booked in advance based on your wedding schedule. Should things run behind on the day (and your package has expired) we'll ask you whether you want us to stay or leave. Overtime can be paid on the day in cash or charged afterwards.

What are the forms of payment?

Credit/Debit card, PayPal, Bank Transfer We can also accept cash for Portrait Photography and other short bookings.

How do you work?

Fast, friendly, candidly.
