East Grinstead Wedding Photographer

We’re Simon + Heather. We’re relaxed, East Grinstead wedding photographers and videographers.

We’re based close to East Grinstead and cover weddings throughout the UK and internationally.

You can have us for wedding photography, videography or both.

Our relaxed, documentary approach is about capturing the stories, moments + magic as it happens.

We’ve been a part of over 400 weddings since 2005 and The Wedding Industry Awards named us as one of the best wedding photographers and videographers in the UK.

But as nice as they are, we don’t do this for awards, we do this because we genuinely adore being a part of the stories of people in love and capturing the magic of wedding days.

If our style sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you!

“…I can’t imagine anyone you’d rather have documenting one of the most important days of your life…”

ABOUT US

We’re an East Grinstead based wedding photographer and filmmaker duo based on the South Coast and we work all over Sussex and across the UK. Our style is unfussy and laid back, with a focus on capturing your wedding in a relaxed way, filled with joy and laughter. Telling the story of your wedding through all the little details; the emotions and the fun. It’s not about staging moments or standing in a line saying cheese. It’s about capturing the people, feelings, genuine moments and beautiful memories.

It’s about telling your story beautifully.

Wherever the venue and regardless of the weather, it’s all about capturing the magic as it happens, and documenting it in a truly beautiful, emotional and sympathetic way. Balancing that with incredible details and stunning, creative portraits.

HOW IT WORKS

It’s not about standing in line for countless hours, while your wedding photographer takes lines of boring, formal photos.

It’s about enjoying your special day. It’s about having the greatest time.

It’s about marrying your best friend.

It’s about wedding photography that captures that in a fun and beautiful way.

Wedding Photography that gives you something to look back on time and time again to bring back every moment, every memory and every smile.

FAQs

We only take one wedding per weekend & popular dates get booked up to 2 years in advance, so if you like what you see and want us to be a part of your day you can get in touch with us here.

400-600 for a full day’s wedding photography. However, there are no strict limits, so if it takes 700+ pictures to tell your story, that’s how many you’ll receive.

40-60 for an engagement shoot.

All the edited photos are provided ‘ready to print’ — and we encourage you to do so, photos are meant to be printed and enjoyed!

Absolutely! Whilst we predominantly work in a documentary style for the majority of the day we know that having a few group photographs is often really important to you and your family. So we’ll work with you to make sure everyone is happy and you get the all the photos you want.

We find that keeping group photos to 8-10 groups allows us to work efficiently without taking too much time away from your day. We usually do these during the drinks reception when everyone is a bit more relaxed and we keep things light and informal.

For more information, there’s a little guide here: Group Photographs.
