Wedding Photographers …
We are Geoff and Linda Penn, a husband and wife team of Wedding Photographers. Although we are based in the beautiful City of Brighton & Hove on the sunny Sussex coast, we photograph weddings anywhere. You can see examples of our wedding photos here.
Photographing your Wedding Day…
We will capture your Wedding Day or Civil Partnership, and – if you wish – your engagement too. We’ll provide you with memories which you will both cherish for the rest of your lives.
How do we start…
Well, we meet. The happy couple and the photographers need to build a relationship; we need to know just what you want from your wedding photography, and we’ll make some recommendations based on experience. This first meeting will cost you nothing, and is without obligation.
Once we’ve subsequently agreed the price and signed the contract, Linda and I will reconnoitre your wedding venues to scout out the best locations for your photographs. we’ll stay in contact right up to – and of course after – your big day.
So, how much will it cost…
The big question – how much? Naturally, you’ll want to choose a level of photographic coverage to suit your budget and your requirements. Our prices start at £450 for two hours coverage to £995 to capture the Bride getting ready right through to the first dance. We can even go right through to the last guest leaving the reception in the wee small hours of the following morning.

What’s not included?
The prices shown are for attendance and photographic services as shown above, and for your wedding photographs on a specially packaged CD. The cost shown does not include the cost of producing prints, albums, or photobooks, but these can be discussed either before or after your wedding.
VAT is not charged. We’re not VAT registered, and therefore do not charge 20% VAT. (Geoff deliberately keeps the business turnover below the VAT threshold.)
What photographs will we take?
Weddings have a number of traditional elements which can be photographed according to your needs; – here is a typical list of wedding photographs, and we can discuss these when we meet.
You may have a preferred style of photography:
- Traditional formal wedding photography
- Photo-journalistic / contemporary style
- A mixture of the two
We’ll discuss your preferences at our initial meeting.
What about albums and prints?
Should you wish, your wedding photographs can be presented to you in print.
- In a traditional wedding album
- In a photobook? (don’t forget copies for your parents!)
- A series of prints
- A DVD slideshow with music
- How about a canvas?
All your photographs will be professionally printed using the finest materials by a high-quality photo lab.
What other services could we help you with?
Have you considered having photographs taken at:
- Your Bridal Shower
- Your Engagement
- Your Engagement Party
- The Rehearsal
- The Bump, the Birth and the Baptism
What do you do now?
Contact us so that we can discuss your needs for your big day. Here is the contact form, or call 01273 880940.
Are you any good?
We think so! Here are some of the testimonials that we’ve received from some of the people we have had the pleasure to photograph.
Nothing is left to chance, and we prepare meticulously. For example, we will bring four cameras to your wedding (and a multitude of lenses).
If we only had one camera each and it failed, we would no longer be Wedding Photographers, we’d be an embarrassed wedding guest.
If two cameras failed, we would be very unlucky embarrassed wedding guests!
Out of respect for you and your big day, anyone working for us will attend your wedding suitably attired; tuxedo/business suit, collar and tie for the men, or a formal dress for the women. There wil be no casual clothing or embroidered polo shirts worn by us.
