20% off full wedding package: £1200 - now £960**

COMPLIMENTARY pre-wedding session is available to get to know me.


Includes online gallery


Includes album in the full day £1200 package*


Second photographer can be ordered in addition


A second photographer may be worth considering if you'd like to capture groom prep where you're not preparing at the same place; also a great option if the fun candids of your reception are a greater priority for you.


*Assumes on 20 page album, additional spreads can be ordered for a further fee.


**Please note that the current 20% discount to £960 excludes album; to include the album the original fee of £1200 is applicable.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SMALLER? Get in touch to discuss and plan any bespoke package that suits your needs!

If, for example, you don't want to do prep shots, and start at the ceremony, but you'd like to go beyond the half-day hours, up to cake or first dance, we can arrange something bespoke, between the half and full-day pricing.

Packages?


I don't believe in complex tiered packages - it's your big day, and you get me for as long as you want, from your curlers going in to the party in full swing!


In practice, this means that I'll be amongst the first to arrive to shoot the story telling of the bridal party preparations and details important to you (and, ideally, groomsmen, if the itinerary of your day, venue, and distance allows - you might be in different places). We can chat about whether your arrangements might mean you'd benefit from a second photographer too!


I will stay until at least the cake cutting and first dance, but also some of the disco beyond if that's your vibe!


There's no "...some many hours of this, some many of that..." here, so long as we're clear on your expectations of style and, most importantly, we have created a written plan of must-have shots (I'll take you through this in consultation).


I will capture the ceremony as unobtrusively as possible, with your venue space in mind.


We'll look in detail at the must haves of your wedding party and family shots after the ceremony and the timings required for elegance, to encounter the best light, and secure those heirloom shots! The size of your family will dictate the time I need here, but do allow a good 30-45 minutes.


The evening reception is my time for more candids...before I steal you away for a sunset shoot of roughly half an hour!


This leaves the cake cutting and first dance...


And the silly dancing and fancy lighting for some fun shots!

*A note on editing: just like my approach to adjusting poses subtly is for a natural look that doesn't seem obviously orchestrated, the same applies to my editing expertise - this will be about subtlety too; whilst all your photos will have had an edit, this will be about retouching to enhance natural beauty, not overly airbrushed! Trust in my expertise too, that from all of my shots from the day, your online gallery will be a selection of the very best, not every last one! You receive all my images as edits (and versions for online) with licensing for any online sharing and printing you wish. We can consult on the best options for you for albums and wall art too. The investment you are making in me doesn't stop behind the camera, but in my editing too - I do not share RAW unedited files with clients, since this simply isn't necessary - you'd have too much work and dissatisfaction any other way!

What is the booking process and beyond?


  • Use the contact form and calendar on here (or alternatively, email me at tom@champagneshutter.com, or call me on 07738 620485) to arrange a chat. Please aim to provide details about you and your partner and families. Do you have proposed packages, extras, and dates in mind?


  • Consultation in person or online - let's get to know one another and give you a feel for whether we're the right fit!


  • Booking requires both: a £400 deposit & a signed contract before I can secure your date.


  • We can arrange a complimentary engagement/couple's shoot so you can get a feel for my style, and potentially get some good material for online, wall art, or even your wedding invites! *Whilst a 2 and a half hr shoot (approx.) is included, please note any prints or wall art are subject to charge. For a limited time, this couple's shoot can come before the commitment to book.


  • The full amount and questionnaire is due by 2 months prior to the wedding date; at this point, we've been planning together a long while, and will have our final consultation meeting to chase logistics, itinerary and timings to ensure there is enough time to document your memories. We will, of course, have kept in touch and corresponded in the meantime, with written plans to fill me in on your family dynamics and must-haves for the day.

FAQ

How do you photograph weddings?

I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. It's our connection and comfort that gets you those beautiful, natural photographs that make a genuine and authentic connection with your family. I'll send you a guide to help you organising your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites...! On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm Yorkshire based in the UK, and yes, I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your destination story internationally, it will require travel bookings in addition to my fee, depending on where it takes place.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos. I aim to share at least some initial edits with you within 1 week (however, this can be a bit more, depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favourites, and also order prints! The full set of edited images can take up to 8 weeks at busy times. From my order date, album orders usually take approximately 2 weeks.

How many pictures will we receive?

I take well over 1,000 images on a wedding day, but trust that after my expert selections and curation, you will receive the very best of the fully edited quality images (hundreds) that tell your story, and curate these into your wall art and album...circa 600...
