Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: David Michael Bradford
Hello and congratulations! Whether you have set a date for your big day yet or not, I would urge you to start thinking about your key suppliers as soon as possible because the good ones get booked up quickly. Every year I have to disappoint over 50 couples due to being unavailable, and it is so heartbreaking to give this news when the couple have taken too long to get in touch. Please do contact me if you'd like to start a discussion. Thank you, David.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Many years ago I photographed actress Angela Griffin's wedding. It was full of famous faces and was featured in OK Magazine. I'll always remember that one.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The testimonials received from happy clients

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Wherever you can, book a professional. It's worth the extra money.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Christmas presents for all the guests under a Christmas tree instead of wedding favors.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After initial contact we have a consultation meeting either in person or via Skype. Once the booking is made we keep in touch via a variety of methods until the planning meeting between 6 and 10 weeks before the wedding date. After the wedding day the photos are edited and delivered to the couple no more than 6 weeks after the wedding.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

One with their immediate family. In time this will prove the most important.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

One at the top of a Scottish mountain.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Discuss and agree a rainy day plan beforehand.

Describe how you got into photography.

I started playing with a camera during my Art A-level at school.
