Full Description
My style of wedding photography is natural, candid, creative and romantic. I offer 3 main packages starting from £750 to suit your budget, including GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE. Please see my website for more detailed information. I'm a full-time wedding photographer covering wedding venues in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and London. I also cover Weddings throughout the rest of the UK and International destinations. From a very young age I have always been interested in photography, partly inspired by the fact that my grandfather Graham Thompson was a Royal photographer for the British Royal Family and my late father, Maurice Thompson, was a Film Director. My passion for photography led me to achieve a number of qualifications in the UK, successfully completing a Diploma in Professional Photography at Cambridge Art College, and a Diploma in Press Photography at Sheffield University. I went on to work for the Maidenhead Advertiser newspaper in Berkshire, covering news, Royal photography, celebrities, politics and sports followed by an opportunity to work for France Press in Paris covering sporting events, documentary news and publicity photos. My 20 years of experience has led me to diversify into wedding ..photography which gives me enormous joy and fulfilment

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Piers
First of all I want to congratulate you both in your future plans. Thank you very much for viewing my profile and I hope you have enjoyed viewing my photos. I would be ecstatic to introduce myself to you both over a coffee to show you my sample wedding albums. I would always advise any wedding couples to meet any potential wedding photographers your interested in hiring and more importantly to see their work in print, rather than on a screen. Hope to hear from you both. Regards Piers

we were able to have some amazing photos with stun
"Choosing a photographer for your wedding is so important; a lot of time, effort and money goes in to it, so it's important that we had top quality photos to cherish the memories forever. Piers was not only professional and competitively priced, but being able to travel to our wedding location in Gibraltar and knowing the area meant we were able to have some amazing photos with stunning scenery. The service delivered was excellent, with photos being sent within 2 weeks and a small selection provided for use at our UK reception - all of our guests just loved looking at them. Thanks once again Piers, Mr Adam & Mr Scott Rowe-Harpham.

We would recommend you without any reservations
Tony and I were absolutely delighted with Piers' work both at the wedding and in producing a beautiful album. He especially caught the children (25 of them!) in some lovely casual poses. Thank you again Piers. We would recommend you without any reservations.

made us feel like he was really our "personal phot
Highly recommend Piers. Not only did he take lovely and also interesting photos, but he was very friendly, helpful and communicated regularly. He ensured that he understood how we envisioned our photos and made us feel like he was really our "personal photographer".

I cannot recommend Piers enough
Piers Thompson put us at ease from day one. On our first meeting he was friendly and very accommodating. We didn’t really know what we were after so Piers showed us several options to help us. On the day of the wedding Piers showed up early for the photos. As our wedding progressed through the day we started to get behind on our schedule, Piers had no complaints and stayed until we were happy we had what we needed. I cannot recommend Piers enough, Piers is very patient with children, especially with our Son as he gets very anxious and on the day refused to have his photo taken, Piers was very considerate as he knew we wanted several photos of our children he tried to put my son at ease and even when he refused Piers still managed to get some wonderful shots of everyone including my son.

Our wedding was made truly memorable by the photos
We have a well finished photo annual and a DVD that we regularly revisit. The photos are extensive and varied -from the more intimate to pictures of our guests enjoying the day. We also have some sepia effect photos of my wife and I in a nearby setting that provide a further romantic touch to the collection. Our photographer (Piers) really captured the spirit of the whole day as well as remaining unobtrusive when interacting with our guests. The whole service provided, including our pre-wedding meetings was thoroughly professional”
