Buffy Thompson Photography

My style is natural and relaxed and with weddings especially I am quite unobtrusive, focusing on achieving a true and full account of your wedding day without it looking too contrived.

Full Description
By the time you get to your big day you will hopefully know me a little already and I will have made it a priority to know you both so that whatever ‘vision’ you have of your wedding is mirrored in the photographs you get back. I listen to what you want. This is about you and not about me showing off my photography. I am happy to stand back and be utterly unobtrusive but equally if you are feeling courageous and want to try some different things I am totally up for that too. I have four packages that I offer to suit all budgets and needs but we can always add on extra's and change things around, I am entirely flexible on that. I use Folio Albums for gorgeous, professional Fine Art Books and Leather-bound Albums that you will love to look through again and again. Do get in touch as I'd love to hear from you.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Buffy Thompson
​Hello and Congratulations on getting engaged! You are both starting on a wonderful journey together and I would love to be given the opportunity to record your first steps so take a look at a selection of some of my recent favourite images and see if you think my style could suit you. If I'm lucky enough to be your wedding photographer I tend to do a mix of Formal, Informal, Editorial and Reportage images in both Black and White and Full Colour, but it is your final choice.

Just seen your photograph’s and WOW. They are brilliant. I love the way you switch between colour, and black and white, and back to colour. During my rambling speech I finished with “ this is a marriage made in heaven”. You’re final shot was incredible. The gateway to a perfect life together and all the stars shining above. Absolutely spot on. You captured the the moment perfectly. Many thanks for creating the memories we will look back on in our future. A huge thank you for your talent. Incredible.

Over the Moon
We are over the moon with the photos you sent us, honestly I am so happy with them and everyone has said the same. They are so natural, just what we wanted. It will be so hard to choose which ones to display.

..not a single photo we do not like...
Thank you so, so, soooooo much for the photos....they are amazing. There is not a single photo we do not like!! You really are an amazing photographer and you captured our day for us beautifully. We are so grateful...... Again, thank you so much. We are just buzzing at the photos. It's like getting to relive the day all over again and all the family and friends are ecstatic with the photos too. I don't think my Mum has ever accepted a photo of herself before you!! Lots of love.

That I started it myself and is something I love doing every single day.

Pet dog with a bouquet.... ahhh!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Backlighting and not being worried about it as rain can make fab photos!

At school.... I never looked back.
