Hotels All inclusive wedding packages inc. photography

It is always good to know that this is the end cost, there are no hidden extras and vat is included.
but questions do need to be asked especially about the photography.e.g.
Do you get to meet the photographer beforehand, to discus your prefered style of photography?
Can you see a sample of a previous wedding at this venue,Is an album included ? is there a choice ?
Finally try asking what the cost of the packages without the included photographer,you may be surprises to find how little of the budget is allocated to the photography.therefore the photographer would have to make compromise to be made either in time, quality or number of images available for your album

As experienced wedding photographers , on your day we follow your wishes as to the style of coverage you prefer placing no limit to the number of formal photographs and yet still always seem to surprise you with the number of relaxed informal images attained over your wedding day

Following your wedding day several days are allocated for editing to ensure that we attain the best set of images to reflect your special day.

Approved Photographers!

It came to our attention recently that a local prestige venue where strongly recommending to the bride and groom to use their approved photographer . I have also discovered that some venues have a financial interest in getting you to engage certain services.
We do not pay a commission to any supplier as we feel that our work should be judged on its merits alone . Many venues do recommend us but that is based on our professional service, bride and grooms comments ,and the finished wedding album . So being approved may not guarantee the best service for you on your day .
Incidentally we are approved by the B.I.P.P. ( "British Institute of Professional Photographers" )and thus our work has been approved and checked, awarded one of the highest standards attainable in our profession, and the seal of approval of a first class quality service.
