Information For SaywellHQ Wedding Photographer

As a Documentary Wedding Photographer, my work leads to a collection of photographs that really capture the feeling and emotions of your wedding day.

I'm Andy, a Nottingham wedding photographer who specialises in candid, natural, relaxed and unposed documentary wedding photography, believing in an un-invasive subtle approach to photography to capture the natural beauty of your day.

Weddings are not only an important day in a couple’s lives, but a beautiful prologue to their stories. It marks both the beginning and end of a phase of their lives, as they leave their separate lives behind and begin a new life together

Second to a photographer, I am a storyteller, and extremely passionate about photography, and believe the mark of this new chapter needs to be told in the best possible way. My goal is to capture natural, beautiful, fun and unposed wedding photos, giving you a comprehensive story of your wedding in whatever format it takes!

I believe a wedding should flow. It is a day to be enjoyed by everyone, meaning a lot to not only the bride and groom but all their loved ones too. It’s this that carries my passion for wedding photography; I follow the day as it happens, capturing all those special moments of not just the bride and groom, but friends reuniting, surprise family guests, and every joyous hug and tear shed.

It’s these moments that build your wedding day to leave you with special memories you will cherish.

Acting discreetly, I capture the preparations as the bride and bridesmaids prepare for their special day; the tears as your dress goes on, the laugher as you squeeze into the car, to arriving at the altar as the groom’s head turns and sees his bride for the first time.

I believe that these are the priceless moments of a wedding that should be captured and treasured forever; a father walking his daughter down the aisle, the moment you say ‘I do’, and the joyous celebration as you walk back down the alter hand in hand.

Top Wedding Tips

If you are looking to get married in a Church, always check with the Vicar or Priest about their restrictions on photography. Some allow full access others do not allow photos at all!

Surround yourself on your wedding day with suppliers and people you feel comfortable with, for example, a photographer might be with you 12 hours.. you need to have a good feeling about them.

Make sure you fully understand what you are paying for - don't get stung by people charging you extra for things that should be included! It's like buying a car and being charged extra for the windows

Andy is an awesome wedding photographer!
Andy is an awesome wedding photographer. His documentary style is unobtrusive yet produces great, natural results. He’s the most responsive person we’ve ever dealt with and incredibly flexible. It’s clear he takes a great deal of pride in what he does. We were delighted with our wedding ceremony photos and look forward to having him photograph our wedding reception when we can finally host this.

His natural documentary style photos made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease
So impressed with SaywellHQ, very professional and friendly. His natural documentary style photos made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease. Pictures have come out amazing and just what we were looking for. We also had his photofilm, a unique "wedding video", which meant we could have the speeches and vows played over the pictures from day, meaning we could share the ceremony with those who could not come. Would strongly recommend him to anyone.

The photos are brilliant and just what we wanted to capture our special day!
Well, planning a wedding through a global pandemic isn’t easy but from the moment I booked Andy at a wedding fair last October, I knew that he would be the right photographer for us. He has kept us regularly updated throughout the year and checked in on us to see how we were doing and the plans going forward. I don’t particularly like being photographed and was sceptical about having him around for the pre ceremony and getting ready but he was so friendly and we didn’t even know he was there to be quite honest! The photos are brilliant and just what we wanted to capture our special day, even if there was only 15 guests that had to wear masks but from the images, you wouldn’t know that this was a very small, micro wedding. I just want to say the biggest thank you to you Andy because you made everything so much easier for us in a stressful time and everyone at the wedding loved you. I will definitely be recommending you to others!

Andy has been very supportive throughout the whole process.
Andy has been very supportive throughout the whole process. He was incredibly quick to offer support and advice, and was eager to make sure we were happy with whatever decisions were being made. It was obvious that Andy has our best interests at heart, and on our wedding day he was extremely flexible to accommodate the changing nature of the event. He seemed to be everywhere at once, and captured a fantastic range of different moments that occurred during our day. We are so pleased with the quality of the photos, and the speed at which we received them (1 week after the wedding day!). There are a large range of photos to choose from and we have loved looking through them and seeing the moments he captured. We can't wait to use them to create some lovely photo albums to be able to look back and remember the day in the future.

I'd highly recommend Andy- professional, helpful, and such a friendly guy!
Andy was our photographer at our wedding party and we were so impressed from the start of planning to the end result. He really is super talented! Andy blended into the party perfectly, you didn't know he was there. How he managed to capture so much of the night from one side of the room to the other, I will never know! The photos tell the story of the night... you really can remember everything when you flick through them! For any brides wanting every special moment captured (as well as the funny ones) I'd highly recommend Andy- professional, helpful, and such a friendly guy!

I would definitely recommend Andy to anyone looking for an innovative documentary-style wedding photographer
Andy was great, from the first meeting to confirming details for the big day, his experience was obvious. He knew how things run and which questions to ask us! On the day he was always there to help out. But also melted into the background and we've had so many compliments on the photos. I would definitely recommend Andy to anyone looking for an innovative documentary-style wedding photographer. Thank you for capturing our special day with a smooth finesse!

I cannot recommend him enough! Thank you Andy x
Andy was a natural photographer we came across after searching on google. We loved how his images told the story of the day and knew instantly that’s what we were after. From start to finish he’s been great and we are delighted with our images from our December wedding. He really managed to capture the day without being in peoples faces and I can not recommend him enough! Thank you Andy x

I cannot recommend Saywell HQ highly enough!
I cannot recommend Saywell HQ highly enough, Andy was just brilliant, he captured each and every moment with the most stunning photographs. He exceeded all expectations. From first point of contact Andy is incredibly friendly & so easy to get along with, he put us straight at ease, talked us through the entire wedding day beginning to end, answered any and every question we had, helping us with any worries we had. On the day Andy was fantastic, he just fit in so well with everyone it was like he was part of the family. I would urge anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer to have a look through Andy's work. We knew from the beginning of our wedding planning we didn't want to have any of the awkward posing for photo's & 'say cheese' that we've experienced at previous weddings, we personally couldn't think of anything worse, and Andy's style dealt with that perfectly, by not having the forced posed kind of photos & Andy's eye for that 'perfect' shot, we have got some absolutely beautiful photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. The few posed formals we had were also absolutely brilliant, the pre-planning of these meant they were organised, exactly what we wanted with who we wanted & took the least amount of time from the day as possible. My personal favourite part of the day was the informal mini photo shoot of me & my husband later in the day, it was honestly so much fun I haven't laughed so much in a long time, and the photos that have come from it are simply stunning. I am so incredibly happy with each and every photo, the entire experience & before and after care I would urge anyone looking for a photographer to get in contact with Saywell HQ. I can guarantee you Andy will provide you with the most perfect wedding photos, nothing but completely professional, friendly & patient, Thank you so very much Andy :) Couldn't pick just one photo, could sit here for hours choosing favourites!

We simply cannot thank him enough.
When I first met Andy at the wedding fair, I was quite sure that he would be our photographer for our wedding. Thanks to his suggestion, our ceremony became a successful and memorable one. It’s also him who made our reception much enjoyable. We simply cannot thank him enough.

Andy Saywell

Hello! I’m Andy, a wedding photographer based in a little village called Newton in Nottingham. I pride myself on not being a ‘traditional wedding photographer’, you won’t catch me climbing up a ladder bossing your guests around, I won’t make everybody stand in a ‘love heart’ shape group photo, I won’t make you do a piggyback. I work in such an unobtrusive way that you’ll hardly know that I’m there. I’m not a fan of traditional, awkward or stiffly-posed wedding photography if that’s your bag – that’s cool, but I’m not the photographer for you. But, if you want a set of images from your wedding day which captures the emotion, the feelings and the true story of your wedding day – I’m the guy for you! I’m not one for writing about my personal life I think my Instagram page can give you a great insight about me as a person and what I’m up to – mainly telling the cats to get off the sofa or me running through the countryside. If you have liked what you have seen on my website, and after having looked at my Instagram page you think ‘he’s ok, doesn’t seem a dick’ then please get in touch to arrange a chat about your wedding plans and how I might fit for you as a wedding photographer. Hopefully, I get to speak to you soon, but if not, I wish you all the best for your wedding! -Andy-
