About Owen Billcliffe Wedding Photography

• My ten-hour wedding collection is perfect for a full day and starts at just £1795. I'm always happy to discuss half-day packages up to four hours for registry ceremonies and elopements in London, and discounts for weekday weddings •

Your wedding photographs are how you’ll remember your day for the rest of your lives, and I love to tell the whole story from start to finish with real, natural moments full of love and laughter.

I’m there to help you create a memento that reminds you how it felt to be there for years and years to come, and whatever kind of wedding you’re planning I’ll take the same easy-going documentary approach, fitting in around you to capture the heart and the soul of the day, just the way it happened, in artful storytelling images.

I want you to have photos you love (of course!) but I’ve found there’s much more to creating a friendly, stress-free wedding photography experience for you than simply taking pictures.

When you choose me the most important thing you’re paying for is the time, experience, and expertise I’ll dedicate to looking after you from start to finish, so you can trust me to take care of the photography while you enjoy your day. And that includes all the support I can offer leading up to your wedding, and then helping create the perfect memento in your album, photofilm, and digital archive afterwards.

I think the only way to find out if a photographer is the one for you is to have a proper chat with them, so please do give me a call any time. I'll be happy to answer questions, there's no obligation to book, and if you like the sound of me we can all meet up in person. Speak to you soon!

  • "Absolute delighted"
    Hilda & Nick on 14 March 2018

    We are absolutely delighted with Owen's photographs of our wedding and reception. We wanted to have informal photos that captured the mood and setting and he achieved both aims fantastically. His approach was low-key and the resulting photographs perfectly composed. We would not hesitate to recommend his services.

  • "Amazing"
    Julie & Andrew on 14 March 2018

    My fiance and I hired Owen after reading boat loads of amazing reviews about him and his work. They're all true! He is an extreme professional, has a positive attitude and takes beautiful candid photos. Both us and our guests love the pics! Thanks again, Owen!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

For full day weddings I recommend ten hours of wedding coverage, from £1795. For smaller weddings, for example at Chelsea Register Office or Mayfair Library, depending on availability I can book up to four hours, starting at £495 for one and a half hours. All my packages also include a complimentary boxed set of six handmade fine art prints, mounted for 8x6 frames.

How much is wedding photography with you?

For full day weddings I recommend ten hours of wedding coverage, from £1795. For smaller weddings, for example at Chelsea Register Office or Mayfair Library, depending on availability I can book up to four hours, starting at £495 for one and a half hours. All my packages also include a complimentary boxed set of six handmade fine art prints, mounted for 8x6 frames.

What is your style of photography?

I specialise in artful, storytelling wedding photography with a relaxed and friendly approach, making natural, candid photographs that the day as authentically and unobtrusively as possible.

What does your wedding photography fee include?

A consultation in person so we can get to know each other, photography on your wedding day, all the editing and processing, a full private gallery of all the finished photos, a highlights gallery and photofilm on my website, a downloadable archive of all the finished high resolution digital negatives, and all my travel expenses in London.

Are you able to travel?

Yes, I love destination weddings and I'm happy to go wherever yours takes me. For weddings outside of London I charge travel and accommodation at cost, and ask for these expenses to be added to the reservation deposit at booking.

How far in advance should we contact you?

For full days at weekends between April and September, please do get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. For summer weekends couples usually enquire around 8-12 months in advance. Between October and March I have better availability, but usually receive enquiries at least 6 months ahead.

Do we have to order our album when we book the photography?

Not at all, you can choose to order an album any time you like before or after your wedding, and you'll be able to view sample books when we meet.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Never ever. Most weddings are the whole day so it would be impossible to shoot two as I haven't yet mastered being in two places at once! I also don't book full weddings on consecutive days, so that I'm able to dedicate all my attention to yours.

How many photos will we get?

Every wedding is different, but usually at least 500 for a full day, and 250 for a smaller register office wedding or elopement.

How and when will we receive our photos?

I'll usually deliver an online gallery of fully edited photographs 4-6 weeks after your wedding for full day weddings, or 3-4 weeks after for smaller weddings, and sometimes sooner depending on the season. You'll receive your digital archive shortly afterwards, either by download or USB depending on the package you book.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

Yes, I retain the copyright and reserve the right to show my work to other couples on my website, and to submit my best work to competitions, wedding magazines and wedding blogs. If there's any images you'd like to keep private, that's no problem at all. You'll have a full Personal Use licence, which means you're welcome to make your own prints.

Do you charge per hour or per wedding? How do you charge extra time?

After we've had a chat to find out more I'll be able to offer a price that covers everything you need. I recommend not booking the bare minimum and adding extra hours on the day as I think you'd much rather forget about me and enjoy yourselves than keep an eye on the clock! However, if you do decide on the day you'd like me to stay longer, I'll charge an hourly rate for each hour started, and I can confirm the rate during booking.

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

I know lots of excellent photographers who have a very similar style to me, who I can recommend in the event of emergency - although thankfully it's never happened yet. You're under no obligation to accept my replacement and are welcome to find your own. Full terms included in our wedding photography contract.

How do we book, and how do we pay?

To book I'll set up a custom booking page on my website with all the details of your package and a contract for us to sign. To reserve the date in my diary I ask for a reservation fee (varies depending on the package you book), with the full balance payable 28 days before the wedding. Payment is via BACS (bank transfer).

Do you offer any discounts?

Depending on the season and location of your wedding I can offer a discretionary discount for full day weddings on Monday to Thursday.
