“There is so much to stress involved in organising your big day. Some of those things you will come to realize don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but some really do! Your photos will be a lasting memory of your big day and all that lead up to it. A clear and lasting link to the sentiment, the people, the love and laughter that came together around you the day you tied the knot. So, except for having your ceremony, marring the love of your life and skipping off to your happy ever after: What else matters? The only other lasting thing that you will have forever are the photos. Its super important to all of us to get this right, which also gives the task of choosing your photographer a pretty high stress rating.

From the off and throughout, I found Silverton Photography very professional. Easily contactable, by phone and email. Knowledgeable, understanding, reassuring. Exactly what you should expect from seasoned professionals.

I didn’t meet Will until the day. He is a very personable chap, and instantly put everyone at ease. 

Will has a very natural way of mingling/organizing people which along with his great eye for a shot makes him perfect if you want some more natural reportage pictures mixed in with your portraits. Some guests commented after how they thought Will was great because he made them feel relaxed and was not too intrusive or too elusive. Thumbs up from the Bride and Groom. Thumbs up from the guests.

I would highly recommend Will to anyone who is currently agonizing over the “which photographer should we book?” question. Save yourself the stress and just book Will – you’ll be in safe hands.”

Try before you buy! With (free) pre-wedding photo shoots

Recently we did some market research to see what engaged couples biggest fears are with regards to their wedding photography.  When we got the results back,  it was clear there were 3 key fears that everyone shares (at least 2 of each of these 3 were mentioned by every couple in our survey).  They are:

1) “That we won’t look good in our photos”.

2) “Our photographer will be brash or will just not ‘click’ with us and our family”.

3) “The Price!”

Here at Silverton we believe that it is important you choose the right photographer for your day (personality is such a big thing) and that you love your photographs.  This can be a really hard thing for couples to ascertain – from just a website portfolio of “best shots”.  Therefore we have trialled, with great success, a new scheme….

Now, a “Pre-Wedding Photoshoot” or “Engagement Shoot” is not a new concept.  But it IS a great opportunity to do allay the first 2 of the above fears.  As you get to spend time with your photographer and see how they work with you to get your images, plus you get to see how you look in their photographs!!  But this is no good once you’ve booked your photographer – you need to know before.  Therefore, we are now offering you a:

A recent wedding at Risley Hall in Derbyshire.

Risley Hall

“You were amazing. You captured some amazing shots and you were very good at organising people and taking our individual shots, so we had more time to spend with guests.  There are so many pictures that capture people looking natural, which is what we love the most.

The pictures are absolutely fantastic and have really captured the atmosphere of the day.

I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting a professional photographer. We were thrilled with the level of professionalism, the ease at which the photo sessions were conducted and most of all the amazing pictures we have to help us relive the day again and again.”

I have covered many a military wedding, both back in my second shooting days and as a trend that carried over to my solo/lead career. Theres a few things I particularly like about them, firstly the attire is always first rate and adds a little spark to an image. Secondly its the personalities of the service men & women, always in good spirits and very easy to get on with – theres always a laugh to be had!

Camilla & Tim | Ingoldisthorpe Hall | Norfolk

Camilla & Tim’s ceremony was held at the church in Terrington St Clement, a charming little village where Millie’s parents live, on arriving to the Eaton residence everyone was extremely friendly and I was able to settle in to documenting the day with ease.

Although weather was not entirely on our side it held of long enough to let proceedings run their course , the reception at Ingoldisthorpe hall was lovely, a lot of the decoration was done by Camilla herself of which she did a fantastic job!

Rebecca & Howard | Paddington | London

It was great to have a quiet and chilled out wedding in the middle of bustling London, held on the Sunday of the Diamond Jubilee and as many will remember the weather was unfortunately not the best – this wasn’t a problem though as it was the perfect opportunity for Rebecca to break out the co-ordinated umbrella she had prepared!

As always I love to hear from couples after and its great to get happy responses, here’s what Rebecca & Howard had to say and some of my favourites from their day;

“My husband and I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful pictures you took at our wedding. You captured the very essence of the day, each time we look back at them the day itself comes rushing back to us. We couldn’t have asked for better pictures and we really liked the mix of black and white photos along with colour. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough for what you have created. We will definitely recommend you and silverton photography to everyone we know.”
