Preserve Your Day with Documentary Wedding Photography


When your grandchildren ask you what your wedding day was like, what you and grandad looked like when you were younger or what did mummy used to wear when she was little…what will you show them?

My documentary wedding photography is a way to share those feelings, relive those memories and bring them back to life again and again for years to come.

Life runs by so fast these days that sometimes you need to just pause for breathe and remember what has just happened. It seems like only yesterday my daughter was born and now she is almost four years old and soon she starts school!! I love to go back and look at the photos and photofilms I’ve made of her. I think it’s massively important to remember your life so you can share it with the generations to come and documentary photography is a great way to do this.

I will preserve your day, capture it and document it exactly as it happens. Your images will be an everlasting memory and ongoing reminder of the love you share with your bride or groom, children or parents. If you want to see what I am waffling on about just head on over to my BLOG to see for yourself.

That is why it is not a ‘Price’, it’s an ‘Investment’ that will capture your present and last into your future.

I like to keep things simple in life and my pricing is just the same, why complicate things I say. Below you can see the kind of things I offer in my collections for WEDDINGS, ENGAGEMENTS and BRIDAL PORTRAIT photography. I of course recognise that every client is has different needs so please GET IN TOUCH and I will send you over a load more detail in my brochures.

Wedding Albums


In the modern age of digital cameras and a world of viewing images online it is a shame that the value of a printed image has been lost. Personally I find there is still no better feeling than holding a printed image in your hands. This is why I offer the most bespoke of albums to my clients. My albums are made using only the best materials and are hand crafted by master bookmakers in the heart of England.

My fine art albums are bespoke to Simon Hawkins Weddings and therefore bespoke to you. They come with a leather cover, beveled cut mounts and the images are printed on fine art paper. Your album will be finished with an elegant box and personalised ribbon.

At £600 the albums are worth every penny and give you something that will last forever.

In addition to my fine art album I also offer a coffee table album, which is perfect to show off your day. Made by the exact same British company as the fine art albums, they are given just as much attention and care which produces a slick modern feel. The album has a sealed photographic cover and leatherette back and spine and the images are printed onto beautiful Fuji Professional silver halide paper. This album is also finished with an elegant black box and personalised ribbon.

At £300 these coffee table albums will fill you with pride every time you look at it.
