Information For 1st Class Wedding Photography

Award winning modern, natural documentary style wedding photographer and videography. Preserving memories in that will help you remember the story of your special day forever just the way it was.

If you are looking for a modern, natural, unobtrusive photographer or videographer for your wedding I would love to be considered for your special day. Your wedding day is your day. I am not a photographer or videographer who will take over your wedding day.

I currently have a special offer of £200 off remaining 2020 wedding dates from my package prices on my website.

My website has lots of examples and my full price list of my standard packages. I can also create bespoke packages if these do not quite fit your plans. I can also offer easy payment options so that you can spread the costs.

I provide an online password protected gallery so guests can also have access to photos taken if you decide to share.

My Facebook page has the most recent example of my work.

Website address: http://www.1stclasswedding.co.uk

I can also provide a discounted and upgraded photo booth service which is extremely popular with evening reception guests and rustic love letter hire.

I am fully insured and an award-winning member of the Guild of Wedding Photographers and also a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

We keep saying to each other "I didn't even know he'd caught that!
We got the photos through today for the wedding of my daughter and son-in-law in December. They are STUNNING! While looking through the gallery of photos we keep saying to each other "I didn't even know he'd caught that!" There were so many amazing images that captured the day perfectly - all the funny moments of people being silly, the sweet interactions between grand-father and grand-daughter, the emotional moment when groom first saw bride and many, many photos filled with pure joy. I can hand on heart say now, if you're looking for a photographer for an event, get in touch with 1st Class Wedding Photography. Trust me, you won't regret it one bit! Thank You again from the bottom of our hearts for so many beautiful moments captured forever

To say I recommend would be a complete understatement.
To say I recommend would be a complete understatement. James really captured our day in the photos- they were perfect. When James was at the venue he just seemed a part of the day and one of the guests! I have received such positive feedback about him from my guests and James has really captured special moments for us that we will forever treasure.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer definitely look no further- absolutely perfect.
Thank you

I can’t think of anyone better to have photographed our wedding
James was brilliant, not just at the photography but in effect an extended member of the bridal party, what a gentleman...so grateful that you were there to shepherd us through the day, and thank you for all the helpful tips. Would thoroughly recommend and I can’t think of anyone better to have photographed our wedding

James is an absolutely fabulous photographer!
James is an absolutely fabulous photographer! We are in love with the photos he took at our wedding. Such amazing quality! He was also great at making us and all our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera as most of us are quite awkward in front of the camera usually!

You have helped us preserve our memories to last a life time
James did a fantastic job being our photographer, he had us feel at ease throughout the whole day. It felt like he was apart of our wedding. Our guests have given us so many compliments on how amazing you are, you made us laugh when one of our guests tried to have a competition with you using her iPhone
James, you have helped us preserve our memories to last a life time. We are so happy that we picked 1st class photography!!

James was incredible on our wedding day
Absolutely fabulous photographer! James was incredible on our wedding day, full of ideas and creativity, James fit right in with our family and friends and felt like part of us, instead of simply a photographer. James enabled us to create the perfect memory shots we will no doubt treasure forever, his helper was just as great and the photo booth was a massive hit, anyone unsure on hiring the photo booth should look no further, full package provided by James, wouldn’t use anyone else after such a brilliant day - thank you from the Luxton’s xx

I love photography and have done so for many years. Weddings are my passion and favourite kind of event to photograph. I love to capture the genuine emotion and the special moments that occur during the day, some of which are often not seen by my brides and grooms until they view their photographs after the day. Unlike some photographers I do not want to control the wedding and like to capture people naturally. Guests and couples are quite often unaware of the camera and that I have even taken their photograph. I shoot in a modern photo journalistic style and normally from a distance, rather than forcing a camera in peoples faces and asking for “a cheesey smile” which can more often than not result in very unnatural and unflattering photos.
