All wedding photography packages, the details…
All wedding packages start at £ 360 for a photographer all day, usually 10:30 am to 8:30 pm.
This enables the photographer to capture pictures of the bride getting ready for the big day and all the way through the day until the 1st dance of the new husband & wife.
All packages are inclusive and allow for weddings within West Sussex.
The Wedding Package
The Wedding package includes an engagement photo-shoot at the venue or location where the ceremony is to be held, to plan and chat about how to capture some great shots on the big day and a few shots of the engaged couple.
Also a selection of 100 high resolution photo’s, presented in a personalised & branded USB case with the USB stick inside.
The photographer can start to capture pictures of the bride getting ready for the big day and all the way through the day until the 1st dance of the new husband & wife.
The Wedding Package is £ 360.00 inclusive.
The Original Wedding Album – Love At First Sight
The art and passion of the photographers, the sensibility, expectations and dreams of the couples, the emotions and amazement of their loved ones… all these feelings take form in an album that you will love at first sight.
The original wedding album is 20x30cms in size, with a die cut leather cover, the debossing of the couples name. This surrounds 50 thick pages with free design, delivery to your doorstep.
The Original Wedding Album cost is £300.00
The Digital Matted Album
Every background colour can be printed on the velvety white of this art matt, making possible to reproduce most of the tones available for the DMA multi and monopaper art mattes, or to invent endless new shades, maybe perfectly matching the chromatic theme chosen by the couple for their wedding. Thanks to the covering white coating (which come before the actual printing of the image) the brightness is increased: this highlights the picture and, together with the refined touches of the selective coating and of the translucent pages, returns high intensity emotions.
White contains all the colours, and in this version it frees them towards an unexpected expressive versatility.
The Digital Matted Album cost is £445.00
The Digital Matted Album – Monopaper
Modern classic comes to life again thanks to measured harmonies. Among the wide range of colour options and precious coloured art mattes, only one will be chosen: it will become the theme of your masterpiece. Images printed directly on matt and textured substrates will stand out thanks to the vividness of the colours, and will be highlighted by the glossy background of the covering white. Sharp varnish geometries can frame each picture or make some of their details reverberate, while the translucent pages allow a glimpse of the emotions of the following pages.
Choose your colour and be charmed by its vibrations.
The Digital Matted Album – Monopaper cost is £580.00
The Digital Matted Album – Multipaper
This is the leading version of the DMA: it allows to interpose pages printed on art mattes of different textures and colours with pages printed on photographic or metallic paper. For the first time ever all the substrates, printing technologies and finishing, including customized translucent pages, can coexist in the same album. The magic of a page printed on a textured art matt, ennobled by the glares of the selective coating, can be combined with the brightness and extraordinary definition of an image printed on metallic paper, maybe followed by a panoramic print on gold or by art mattes combined together thanks to a contrast of pale and deep shades.
The possibilities are endless, the results are simply amazing.
The Digital Matted Album – Multipaper cost is £645.00
The pace is nearly cinematographic, the sequence of the events of a special day is brought to life in a variety of the surfaces, different also in the way they reflect light; by empathizing unique moments, or by toning down the atmosphere of a watercolour like sunset, the photographer, the artist, becomes an orchestra leader searching for new harmonies.The return to this new, amazing, classical style lives again thanks to exclusive technologies, to chromatic symmetries created by the tones of the art mattes and to the atmospheres of images which, like in an enchantment, embraces and carries the characters of the story into a world defined by a balance of shapes and colours.
All photographic services are given to ensure a reportage style of photography, that will capture the emotions as the wonderful story of the wedding day, unfolds.
The products are supplied on request and can be customised or enhanced to suit.

As a Sussex Wedding Photographer I get to meet fabulous couples on Engagement photo-shoot, that are always looking forward and preparing for the big day!
It is a great honour to be part of the wedding day. I will capture the bride & groom at their very best with a photo style that portrays a story as the day unfolds, also capturing beauty shots where desired.
On the grounds of the Bishops Palace Gardens at Chichester Cathedral. We decided for a simple style of photography, they sat down and I set my camera ready for the photo-shoot. We start with basic poses and they naturally developed.
After Amanda & David were relaxed, they walked across the grass, they passed the bluebells, as they happily strolled along and made plans for the wedding day.
It was a gloriously sunny day and the light was good, I was able to capture the happy couple as they become more relaxed in front of the camera.
An Engagement Photo-Shoot is a perfect time to ensure the wedding plans going well and it is a privilege to confirm being the official photographer for the day.
Consider all aspects when arranging a meeting with the wedding clients for the engagement photo-shoot, early morning or evening times are best, however not always convenient.
Always try to capture the location where the wedding venue is to take place, this will enhance any ideas to make the day the best you may.
Basic Poses, is always a good starting point, the pose develops naturally, as you take the shots of the happy couple.
The Engagement Photo-Shoot is a good progression it helps ensure the couple are familiar and comfortable with the camera.

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro For Local Charities
We are Carley and Tammy; a Paramedic and Technician crew for South East Coast Ambulance Service. We are both local girls, living in Worthing. In a bid to raise money for local charities we will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in July 2017. We will be testing both our mental and physical capability over 10 days, climbing to Uhuru point, which is the peak of the Mountain at a colossal 5,895m!
With 16 months to prepare, training has already started utilising the local South Downs. We have a planned training week in April this year to North Wales, climbing Mount Tryfan (917m) as well as the neighbouring and well established climb of Mount Snowdon to an ascent at 1085m.
Our chosen charities are Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House in Sussex. Working for the ambulance service we have close contact with both patients and families alike who need the extensive services of these charities. We see the invaluable comfort and care they provide. Over the years we have built some great relationships with the staff at these units and have been honoured to assist in palliative care. They have in our eyes, become essential for end of life support.
Both are voluntary organisations receiving less than 7p in every pound from the Government and rely heavily on the generosity, help and support of the people of Sussex. Chestnut Tree House treat, support, and care for all children with life limiting disabilities. They provide the best quality of care throughout each child’s life however short it may be. Since 1973 St Barnabas House remains the primary centre in Worthing for adults with Cancer and other life changing illnesses. They offer continued help and support from for symptom management, respite care, or end of life care.
We are looking for local Companies to help us raise £10,000 for our charities. This will make a genuine difference for both charities in order to continually provide the excellent care and support that they give to so many.
Please support for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro fund raiser with a like or share with your friends…
