Information For S R Urwin Wedding Photography

I’m Steve and I would love to tell your story!

Firstly, there is no wedding too small, or too far away, that doesn’t deserve to be beautifully documented by S.R.Urwin Wedding Photography. Whether it is an intimate wedding with just your closest friends and family, or something on a grander scale, as a full-time wedding photographer, I will ensure your precious memories are preserved to share with loved ones, for ever.

Whether it’s bridal prep at home, exchanging rings during the wedding ceremony or weeping over father’s speech, my style of wedding photography is best described as authentic and honest. I focus on candid and natural expressions with, at times, a hint of direction from me!

Finding amazing opportunities in ordinary settings and scenery is what I am seeking. I will be striving to bring out the most comfortable and natural side of you.

After photographing weddings for over 10 years, my experience tells me all weddings have opportunities for emotive photojournalism. When father-of the-bride catches the first sight of his daughter in her wedding dress, the result should be expected.

Throughout the day, I will be looking out for those natural, romantic moments too. This is often when the two of you are alone, strolling hand-in-hand, just reflecting on how this magical day is unfolding.

When the time is right, there will be golden moments. This is an opportunity to shoot against beautiful natural backdrops or dramatic skies. These moments are usually captured when the sun is low in the sky and an in-depth knowledge of photographic technique and professional lighting starts to pay dividends.

The same techniques are employed to bring out the very best images of your first dance as a married couple. As this never-to-be-forgotten event draws to a close, you will see me on the dance floor with your family and friends, still capturing your special day as you continue to celebrate long into the evening.

I appreciate clients who appreciate detail. You will find my images include all those things you have worked so hard to pull together and the things you’ll probably otherwise forget. I am always focusing on candid, natural unscripted moments which will happen throughout your wedding but also on those little pieces and parts you have woven together to make it YOUR day.

• STEP 4 is the WEDDING DAY. I will photograph your wedding day, with a second photographer if you wish, in the relaxed and low pressure style we have become known for, allowing the day to go smoothly.

• STEP 5 is delivering the BEAUTIFUL IMAGES. Access your hi-resolution wedding images via a personalised password protected online gallery, where you can download and share all your beautiful photos with your family and friends. These are YOUR photos to print out or share online as you wish!

Top Wedding Tips

All wedding guests are important. A wedding turns into an event due the people you choose to invite. Your wedding VIP’s should become your photographer’s VIP’s. I devote time and attention to all.

If you feel awkward posing for creative bride and groom shots, or the family group ones, then allow a little direction! Good photographers can create environments for personalities to shine through.

Lighting conditions will change on the big day. If your ceremony is dimly lit or reception too bright, a good photographer will know within seconds where the best light is and the best spot to stand.

We cannot even express our gratitude.
Steve photographed our wedding in September 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. We cannot even express our gratitude. Steve was absolutely lovely and did everything that he could to make our day special. Many guests commented on how friendly and efficient he was, no one was left waiting around and Steve blended into the background throughout the day. He was so easy to talk to, we highly recommend.

So proud of ourselves for choosing you
We want to thank you so much, for making our day so perfect. You really made our day so special! People say, having photographers on your wedding day feels awkward and imposing. We can, hand on heart, say the complete opposite. You both really made our day, and now thinking back, it wouldn’t have been the same without you. It’s hard choosing suppliers; we are so proud of ourselves for choosing you. Thank you so much.

...captured great natural photos
Steve came to us back in June 2019 to photograph a wedding we hosted. The whole day he was highly professional, worked great with the guests and with the couple. The couple and group shots that he did were so incredible and he definitely went above and beyond to get unique photos for them (like standing on a gate to get the best view!). Steve worked tirelessly throughout the day and was there from start until finish. He captured great natural photos of everyone during the dancing and speeches. He was really helpful towards all of our staff and so polite!
I cannot recommend Steve enough! Thank you so much!

So nice getting to know you
“The day was just perfect from beginning to end and the weather was the icing on the cake. Everyone has been talking about the casino, magician and how professional you and Ben were. It was an honour for us to have you both there. It was so nice getting to know you too, over the past 2 years, and I think that helped with taking the photos on the day, as we were just so relaxed”.

So glad that we found and chose you
“I just wanted to say how grateful we were for all your help on Thursday. You put everyone at ease and half of the time we didn’t even know you were snapping away! We were so glad that we found and chose you as our photographer. You are professional and know your job – you’re a really nice guy as well!”.
