Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! Whilst many of our commissions are within Brighton and Sussex, we cover weddings all across the UK and Internationally.
Recent UK wedding destinations have including the Lake District, the Peak District, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Wales, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall – plus all points in between.
International travel and destination weddings are also welcome – please ask for details.
How do we secure the date?
As of 2018, 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, secure your date soon.
Securing the date is easy –
You’ll just need to complete a booking form and pay the £500 booking fee and that’s it, your date will be secure.
The booking fee is applied towards whichever wedding photography package you choose, with the remaining balance due four weeks before your wedding.
How do we pay?
Bank transfers and credit/debit cards through Paypal.
How many photos do we get?
400-600 for full day wedding coverage. 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.
When do we get our wedding photos?
Your completed photos will be ready 4-6 weeks after your wedding (in peak season it’s likely to be closer to 6 weeks). Engagement session photos are usually available sooner.
Can we print photos?
All the edited photos are provided ‘ready to print’ — and we encourage you to do so, photos are meant to be printed and enjoyed.
Do you do wedding albums?
Yes! For further information see the wedding album page, or get in touch.
Are you insured?
We don’t leave anything to chance, so yes – all our gear is fully insured and we have full public liability insurance. If you need proof of insurance let us know.
Fazackarley… it’s pronounced Faz-ack-arr-lee and it’s Simon’s surname, business name and an old English word, meaning the clearing in/at the edge of the woods, apparently. Although it seems most old English words mean that.
Can we have group photos?
Absolutely! Whilst we predominantly work in a documentary style – group photographs are an important and fun part of the day. If you keep to 8-10 groups it allows us to do them quickly and efficiently, without taking too much time away from your drinks reception.
For more information, there’s a little guide here: Group Photographs.
Can you provide a second photographer?
Heather acts as associate photographer at larger weddings or where dual coverage is required. She also takes the lead on our stunning wedding films. When she’s not photographing weddings Heather is a professional food and lifestyle photographer. You can see some examples of her beautiful photography here.
Our styles and working dynamic compliment each other perfectly and for a small additional cost we can offer wedding photography packages including both of us.
Can you recommend any venues?
We’ve had the privilege of photographing weddings at many venues & they’re all great for different styles of weddings, I’ve put together a few of our favourite venues from the South of England here: Wedding Venues in the South of England
Have you photographed any religious ceremonies?
We’ve photographed hundreds of weddings over the past 14 years and have had the pleasure of documenting a variety of Jewish weddings, Indian weddings, Greek Weddings, as well as many Catholic & CoE Weddings. We always thoroughly research ceremonies of cultures and religions that we haven’t experienced before, to ensure everything runs smoothly and we know exactly what to expect.
What camera gear do you use? Do you bring backups?
The majority of photos are produced with Canon 5d mkIV, Canon 5d mkIII and lenses such as 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 45mm f2.8 TS-E, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L, 135mm f2.0L, 70-200mm f2.8L IS.
Also Canon 580EXII flashes, flash triggers, a few handheld video lights, prisms, handheld optical lenses & a lot of other things to unleash creativity.
Multiple backup cameras and lenses come to every wedding — so should anything happen to the main gear, your coverage won’t be affected.
Heather creates videos using much of the same equipment, as well as a variety of microphones and lighting solutions.
