Full Description
Multi-award winning photographer with twenty years of experience photographing weddings from barns to castles throughout the UK. Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make when planning your wedding. My style combines authentic, natural reportage capture with a touch of classical. I aim to let the day flow with just gentle direction when it's needed. For most weddings I have a female assistant so that I can move around freely and have an extra pair of hands when helping gather guests for those important group shots that everyone wants and generally don't want to do! My aim is to make this a fun experience, still allowing plenty of time for you to mingle with your guests while I continue to capture your wedding discreetly for those compelling and authentic photographs for you to enjoy forever. For your favourite memories of the day. I offer a range of styles and finishes of albums and it’s up to you as to how much you wish to invest. I personally design each album as well as personally editing and preparing all your images from your wedding in my signature style. All weddings include a password protected online gallery to share as well as highlights within a few days and all your high resolution edited images in my signature style on my branded USB. Albums, thank you cards, framed photographs, engagement/pre-wedding shoots are all offered.

A superb artist
Wendy Aldiss possesses that rare combination of great technical skill coupled with beautiful, elegant artistry, which is perfect for not only weddings but all celebratory events. A superb artist as well, my family has used Wendy on many occasions. Each time she has created long lasting memories, for which we will be ever grateful.

Incredible snapshots of our day
Wendy went above and beyond taking the most amazing photos that really did capture the spirit of our wedding last July! Wendy was friendly and professional and great at gathering and instructing our guests to photos whilst seamlessly blending in. Importantly for Charlie and I (who are laid back planners to say the least!) Wendy was incredibly flexible, adaptable and creative with her ideas. We love all of the photos and it was almost an impossible task whittling down photos for the album. Would definitely recommend Wendy.

Captured moments we weren't aware of.
Wendy did a beautiful job of capturing our wedding, especially given the difficult circumstances of non-stop rain all day! The group photos and pictures of key moments in the day are lovely but it was also a wonderful surprise to find that Wendy had captured lots of moments that we weren't aware of. Wendy herself was a pleasure to deal with - organised and authoritative on the day but also friendly and personable. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Captured so many wonderful moments.
Wendy photographed our wedding so wonderfully! We were so excited to see the photos and they captured so many wonderful moments, that we would never have seen without her skill. The venue had a series of small gardens and she did such an amazing job of capturing the scenery as well as people enjoying themselves. Thank you so much, Wendy. We will forever treasure your photos.

Capturing moments to last a lifetime
We knew we wanted Wendy for our wedding the moment we met her. It was important to us that our photographer got to know us as a couple rather than just taking staged photos and this is exactly what we got. She was so lovely from day one. Neither myself or my husband like having our picture taken or being centre stage and so it was quite daunting but Wendy assured us that pictures would be a story book of moments captured and she definitely delivered. We hardly noticed her on the day( in a good way )and couldn’t be happpier with some of the incredible moments she somehow captured from love, emotion, friendship, family and just outrageously happy. Thank you x

Her photos always take my breath away!
I have known Wendy for quite a few years now. We first met when she photographed our beautiful wedding at Monkton Barn. Since then she has taken some gorgeous photos of our family as it has grown over the years starting with the children as newborns right through to our latest photo shoot which included three generations of the family. Wendy puts you at ease when taking your photo, especially the kids, they love her! She has an eye for capturing everyone's character and her use of light is stunning, the end result is always something you'll want to look at forever. Her photos always take my breath away.

FAQ
(6)

What is your most memorable wedding?

I can't pick just one!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, timeless, artistic, unobtrusive, warm.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of having established my business 20 years ago and that I'm still as excited and inspired by photography as I was then. I've made wonderful friends through my business which has enhanced my life and that of my family - a wonderful career!

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

I can't think of a favourite. I often see wonderful imaginative and creative touches as couples don't feel constrained by tradition as they once did.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples either email me or telephone. We arrange a meeting which is invariably an evening during the week at my studio in Marlow. I discuss wedding plans with them and show examples of my work, albums and discuss the way I work. This is usually a fun evening, with coffee/tea, biscuits or a glass of wine!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Don't worry about the weather, it's the one thing you have no control over. The rainy weddings I've photographed have also allowed for some creative, fun and evocative brolly shots!
