Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Ian Petrie
So excited for you both and I'd love to hear from you. It would be lovely to talk about all you are planning for your special day and find out what you see as important and not important as at the end of the day we all have different priorities in our lives. Some couples want different things for their photography services and it is key to me to understand what they are for you. So let's have a natter see if we jell together!

From the get go of contacting Ian to query about wedding photography
From the get-go of contacting Ian to query about wedding photography, He was so informative, giving us so much information that we didn’t even think we needed to consider, Helping us with different ideas & giving us plenty of choices, He’s answered all my questions without hesitation and got back to me super duper quickly, On our wedding day Ian was super, helped out with things that you wouldn’t even imagine a photographer would do when my shoes broke he was hands-on to help fix them! Made us all feel at ease on the day and was great at getting some memorable photos throughout our day natural ones and staged ones. His second photographer was great too he spent the morning with the boys why they got ready and made sure he got some great photos throughout the day so massive thank you to him too! He was fully organised which you will find out how with his paperwork when you book him! I also asked for specific photos from Ian and was amazed when I received them. He even did me more than one style. We also had videoing of our special day & I'm so glad we choose to do this, We received some photos back within the first week of being married and the rest within 4 weeks and our beautiful USB came through the post too. I would fully recommend Ian for anyone looking for a wedding photographer he's professional at all times not afraid to answer any queries you may have and will fill all your wedding needs as your photographer. So from the new Mr & Mrs Wyer Thank you so much! ❤️🤍

we can’t thank you enough
So myself and Kim got married on the 7th of August, and we can’t thank you enough. From the moment we booked you we knew you would fit right in and you did not disappoint. You are an extremely professional photographer, but not only that you helped me throughout the day. Now to the amazing photos. I can’t believe how fantastic the photos you took are, and the memories that flood back of our beautiful day. All of our guests have nothing but amazing things to say about you, and some said they didn’t even know you were there #ninja 🤣 But in all seriousness, you are one of the most polite and genuine people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting throughout our wedding journey, and the gift you got us to say thank you was an enormous shock as we honestly thought you couldn’t have done any more. Again Ian from the bottom of our hearts we thank you 😊

Ian is an amazing photographer
Ian is an amazing photographer. From the very first time my husband and I met Ian, we knew we wanted him to be our photographer for our wedding. He is friendly, kind, down to earth and easy-going. I would recommend Ian with no question asked. 1st class photographer.

From the moment we meet with Ian right up to the day was so much help
From the moment we meet with Ian right up to the day was so much help to get the image of what we would like on the day and then on the day he made us feel so at ease and got some great shots of us and guests. So played with how pictures turned out too I will be back again for the family and anniversary shoot. Thank you again Ian for a prefect and professional service

We highly recommend Petrie’s Photography
A massive thank you to Ian Petrie for his photography services for our Wedding. We first met Ian at a Wedding fair in November 2016 and subsequently took up his services in early 2017. We had many questions and queries to ask and really welcomed Ian’s patience/understanding and prompt responses throughout. On the Wedding Day, Ian and his assistants remained very discreet and effectively blended into the proceedings. We are very pleased with the final results and now have two lovely Photo Albums, images on USBs, access to an online gallery and four lovely A3 framed prints as memories of our special day. We highly recommend Petrie’s Photography. Regards Martin & Donna Bee

What is your most memorable wedding?

Daniel and Donnie wedding at Eastwood Hall was full of emotional moments that just made the whole day so memorable for them and us capturing it. plenty of people on the dance floor making the evening so fun to be a part of.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Quirky, Fun, Relaxed friendly

What about your business are you most proud of?

Customers reactions when they see their images for the 1st time, this makes it all worth the long hours.

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

Enjoy the experience and ask friends and family who have gone through it their opinions and advice.

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

Best man speech was not a speech but a personal song

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Phone/Email chat followed by a personal meeting so you can meet each other, see albums/portfolios and discuss the wedding day as a whole, not just the photography side. this will help me craft a better all-round experience with our services from start to finish, they are no obligations to commit and are in a relaxed friendly manner. If couples decide to book then a customised contract unique to the couple's requirements is created and will need to be signed with a booking fee to hold their date. The remaining balance will not be due until 2 months before the wedding day and a timesheet and shoot list will be requested before the big day to help me plan my day and organise shoots quicker and smoother.

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

There is not really just 1 key photo, but I find the walking down the aisle with the farther, 1st look, 1st kiss and 1st dance are all very important key moments to have captured

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

I am often asked to add some quirky photos into the mix such as having the wedding parties run towards the camera then superimpose a dino, ghost, alien invasion etc into the background for something fun, quirky and completely different to the normal style of wedding photos.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Coats or throws to wrap around in between photos to keep and dry plus nice umbrellas, that being said I always carry an umbrella with me mostly heart-shaped to use for photos as well.

Describe how you got into photography.

I was a local model with my wife for many years and took up photography as a hobby focusing on fine-art portraits, and then I was asked to do a wedding which went really well so it just went from there.
