You’ve found an Isle of Wight Wedding Photographer, I’m Simon Fazackarley and I’m based a stones throw away, along the coast in Brighton, and all of my packages include travel to the Isle of Wight, as well as surrounding counties such as Hampshire. The Isle of Wight is such a beautiful location for weddings & have had the pleasure of being hired to photograph lots of weddings both on the Isle of Wight & throughout Hampshire.

Relaxed wedding photography

I’m a relaxed, documentary wedding photographer & I photograph the emotions of weddings, all from the perspective of a guest – I blend in with your guests, and aim to be effectively a guest with a camera, Albeit a fancy camera and the permission to be at the front of the room during the ceremony!

Using this relaxed style, I tell stories through photos, the story of your love, and the your wedding day – through little details; beautiful moments, smiles & laughter. Balancing this documentary approach with beautiful photos ensures you have an amazing day and also get with beautiful wedding photographs to treasure, show your family and friends, and for future generations to look back on!

We’ll capture your wedding in a relaxed way, filled with joy and laughter. Tell your story 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.

Isle of Wight Weddings

I always love to photograph weddings on the Isle of Wight, & always enjoy exploring the Island, it’s such an incredible place – remote, yet connected & filled with such a beautiful array of scenery – and beautiful backdrops for photos. Being a seaside lad I love to be close to the sea, away from the hustle and bustle of cities like Brighton and London, So the Isle of Wight is right up my street. Not to mention the fact, that everywhere you look you’ll find something beautiful – something I always use to draw inspiration for my wedding photography.

Whether you’re planning a beach wedding, or something in a country house – you can be sure my relaxed, documentary approach will fit right in and you’ll have an amazing day – without having to stand in line for photographs or say cheese. Unless you’re planning an cheese buffet or work as a cheesemonger, in which case go nuts and say it as much as you like.

I’m based in Brighton, and photograph weddings all across the country, from as far north locations like Yorkshire and Scotland, to Somerset and offshore locations, like the gorgeous Isle of Wight and the Isle of Man! So, if you’re planning a wedding on the Isle of Wight,  and looking for an Isle of Wight Wedding Photographer or, indeed anywhere in the UK – and like the sound of my work, please get in touch!

Want to see more beautiful stories?


The Isle of Wight has some fabulous wedding venues, venues that really encapsulate the location – from getting married atop of cliffs overlooking the sea, to quirky hotels – to grand country houses, there’s something for every taste.

From Haven Hall, the gorgeous country house with its cliff top gardens, overlooking the sea, to Osbourne House – a truly impressive wedding venue which has an amazing history – it’s the family home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, so getting married there puts you in the footsteps of countless royals and dignitaries – how many wedding venues can make that claim! There’s also the wonderful Royal Hotel, one of the oldest hotels on the island – perfectly suited to classical, romnatic weddings. If you’re a foody (and we most certainly are!!) the Royal Hotel is of particular interest, as it’s been a mainstay of the Michelin guide since the very first edition in 1911.

If you’re after a country garden wedding, consider Landguard Manor – it has more than four acres of stunning gardens and makes it the ideal spot to celebrate a wedding with a glass of Pimms in the summer sun!
