wedding diaries has a passion for capturing authentic moments, specialising in a relaxed, candid style that reflects the essence of your special day. my goal is to create natural, timeless albums that each tell a unique story, with a more documentary, 'fly on the wall' approach, whilst also ensuring everyone feels at ease in front of the camera, from all of the intimate moments to the group shots.

Wedding Diaries Full Description
wedding diaries takes a classic and traditional approach to weddings, with a more relaxed/candid style, focusing towards the documentary style - I love getting involved with the group shots and I've worked very well with couples that aren't particularly comfortable in front of the camera. the result is a natural, timeless album. before becoming a wedding photographer, I was an award winning wildlife photographer... this isn't your typical route into wedding photography but, it does mean i have a great knack for capturing those moments which happen in a split second and the important moments which will only ever happen once in your life! I use professional grade equipment with multiple lenses, providing a variety of shots. We also offer drone footage, adding further dimensions (subject to weather and venue approval). notice I just said 'we'...I often work alongside my wife, hannah (bride diaries). she is a wedding video content creator providing an unlimited amount of video coverage just one night after the wedding! We offer joint packages, or can be hired solo. more details about hannah's content creation can be seen on our website

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: James
photography is something I have always been incredibly passionate about. You will find me with a camera in hand whenever I have a spare moment (and often when I don’t!) Before I became a wedding photographer I photographed wildlife, which I think was the perfect way to hone my skills... I'm still yet to come across a bride or groom that can move move as quickly as an eagle🦅 during my time as a wildlife photographer I learned to capture those perfect moments which can often happen in just a blin

I am so happy you got to be a part of our day of love! We love you both
I used James and Hannah for my wedding on 25th April after seeing some gorgeous shots taken at a friends wedding a year or so before. I love the fact they are a husband and wife duo as it made everything so natural and seamless as they work so well together! They are truly beautiful souls and I cannot reccommend them both enough! Having photos and content to look at the next day is really outstanding service, I don’t know any other photographers or content creators who provide such a quick service like they do! They made us all feel really at ease and I particularly loved how Hannah interacted with my 2 year old son Jude making him feel happy and getting the most precious video of him which I’ll treasure for years to come. James was also really professional and warm and they both arrived with a smile and made me feel hyped for the day ahead. I would book them over and over again, very reasonably priced too, guys honestly thank you so so much, you are both fabulous and I am so happy you got to be a part of our day of love! We love you both
