Full Description
I have been photographing weddings since 2013 when I first created Casual Captures. I love what I do and work hard to photograph your day in the least intrusive way possible and to make you as relaxed as I can. This is going to be your best day ever and I would be honoured to be the one to photograph it and tell your story happily ever after! Just relax and enjoy your day, safe in the knowledge that I’ll be there photographing every magic moment. Whether your event is in Barnard Castle, Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Hexham, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Northallerton, Sunderland, Thirsk or anywhere in the North East, please get in touch if you would like to receive more details about my wedding packages.

We will recommend casual captures to everybody who needs a professional photographer. Iain has amazing ability with a camera and captures the most amazing photos. The ability he has encapsulating the moment is second to none. Iain has a natural charisma and helps you relax thus bringing out the most amazing photos. Every single guest we had commented on how brilliant Iain is and how they will also recommend him to everybody. Iain is fully deserving of an award for his brilliance with a camera.

Casual captures attended our wedding evening party and from arriving to leaving provided us with a top quality service. A very fun and unique style of projecting pictures on a screen for all to view. Played our cyprus video of our wedding day and photos for our guests to see. Entertained our guest with his photo frame and props. Nothing was a problem. Made sure we had some formal photos at the start then captured all our guests having fun. Worth every penny. Provided on line album. Superb 👍
