Wedding Style – A blend of Artistic, Vintage & Dramatic

So who do Once Upon A Wedding photography suit?

We suit a variety of couples, but mainly those who want someone to listen to them and show an interest in their lives as a couple and not just another wedding shoot, which is why one of the first questions we ask is… What are you interested in and what do you like to do for fun?


Choosing the right person for your wedding photography

A lot of couples perhaps don’t choose a photographer according to their style and interests.They choose a photographer on name only. This person has to capture the most important day of your life. So pick someone that is interested in your personality, not just your wallet.We love to tell the whole story of your wedding from the yes to the first dance, so before each wedding we meet our couples for an initial chat and then included in our top 2 packages is a pre wedding shoot. This is to mainly get our couples comfortable with having their picture taken as some people really don’t like to have their picture taken

So with this shoot our couples can express themselves and do something a little different and perhaps have some fun with our vintage dressing up box.

We are always buying new props for this and we always try and keep the items non tacky.We wanted a photo album that was really eye catching and something you wouldn’t put away and forget about. We also thought each couples had a story so why not put this into a story book that could be personalized for each couple and something that would fit our company name, as a child i loved the old fairy story books.

All the photos of your special day are also given to you on a memory stick for those everlasting memories

We also offer various packages to suit your budgetWe wanted to tap into our couples personalities and try and bring their ideas and interests to the photos to make them really personalized.

We use traditional techniques for our group shots and modern reportage style for the other shots, often shooting from a distance to capture those moments that you don’t see.

We are also great at coming up with ideas on the spot if we see something that can be used to enhance the shot. Its great to be working as a couple and people really love our fun and caring personalities. We want to be there for the best parts of our couples day and on hand if they need any particular shots. Pauline is on hand to set up the group shots and make sure everyone looks their best.

She also helps with the bride in the morning if required


My husband and I decided to use Once Upon a Wedding Photography for our special day and what can I say Gary is Talented, patient, creative and has an amazing eye for detail. Right from the outset we knew Gary was going to be great – Hannah & Khalan Wright

This is a long overdue thank you for our wonderful personalized, bespoke wedding album. It has taken pride of place in our home and will never be stored away-it is a piece of art in itself. Thank you so much to both Gary and Polly for capturing our special day – Alex & India Bailhache

Believe me when I tell you that Gary is hands down absolutely. Every. Single. Thing that I could have possibly wanted or needed in a photographer. He is so very kind, he is interested in you and your story, he is beyond flexible to your needs, he understands that everyone is different and he celebrates that! His talent is also…oh, it’s just beyond words. – Kate Alexandra Winder
