As a London wedding photographer – covering London, Surrey, Sussex, the whole of the UK and destination weddings further afield – I want to tell the story of your wedding day with minimum fuss. I will do this by discreetly and unobtrusively documenting the natural moments and genuine emotions that occur as your day unfolds.

In other words, I want you to forget I’m there, after all it’s your special day and you should be sharing it with your nearest and dearest…it’s not a photo shoot.  So I won’t order anyone around, bark instructions, ask you to say cheese or act like an artistic diva in any way.

The moments that matter most often come unexpectedly,  you can never stage or pose those kind of things. It’s your wedding story as it actually happens and it’s as unique and individual as you are. I’ll also docueme

nt some of the stories you won’t even see happening on the day itself.

Your wedding photos are the very first keepsake you will create as a new family. They are an heirloom you will hand down over the years and decades to come; to share with others you don’t even know yet.

So I’ll ensure your wedding story is real, honest, straightforward and natural. Yes, it’s as simple as that.

I do this by offering you 4 different wedding photography collections to choose from. Whatever your budget you can ensure you get me, an award-winning London wedding photographer, for your wedding day.

Optional Extra Add-ons

Gatton Hall Wedding Photography

Want to tailor your wedding photography collection further?  Whilst my wedding photography collections are more than enough to cover your whole wedding day, you can also add the following further optional extras to give yourself a more unique and individual experience.

2nd Photographer & Drone Photography

Blck and white documentary wedding photography of the bride and groom leaving the wedding ceremony, at St Andrew in Merstham, Surrey. Taken by award winning Surrey wedding photographer, Darren Lehane.

An optional second photographer is fantastic way to get a much wider perspective of your wedding day.  This ranges from covering your partner’s preparations in the morning through to additional coverage of your day, including drone photography for aerial shots of your wedding.

I always use the same second shooter, Steve, who has a very similar photographic approach to mine. We work perfectly in tandem and make an excellent combination for your wedding day.  I always edit all the images to ensure you get a consistent look.  By adding a second photographer, you increase the minimum number photos you can expect to an extra 250 images on each collection.

My 2nd Photographer is also fully licensed to undertake drone photography. So you can also include drone photography with the 2nd photographer option. (I am unable to offer drone photography without the 2nd photographer option being included.)

2nd Photographer Only Price: £225
2nd Photographer + Drone Photography Price: £275

Call/text me on 07920 422144 or send me an email via my contact page if you’d like more details about adding a 2nd photographer to your wedding collection.


Wedding Photo Story Books

Wedding photography story books by award winning London wedding photographer Darren Lehane.

Photos should definitely be printed so they can be shared more fully. A photo printed on the page of a book is a work of art and looks infinitely better than on screen via social media.  Your beautiful wedding story story deserves to be properly printed.  After all, it’s not just a keepsake but a family heirloom to be passed down.

That’s why I offer contemporary photo story books – that look great on any coffee table. These come in 3 sizes based on 25 pages (about 75 images)

  • Deluxe: £175
  • Contemporary: £150
  • Mini Square: £125

I will personally select the photos that best represent your wedding story and design/print your book – taking all the headache out of it for you.

Additional pages can be added.


Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

Battersea Park pre-wedding photography shoot with same sex couple, Arad and Brian, sat beside the boating lake.

A pre-wedding shoot is a perfect way to document your love for one another ahead of your wedding day, in a more informal setting. It’s also a great way for us to get to know one another before the wedding day.

As a London wedding photographer this hour and a half shoot will usually take place in a location around London somewhere. It’s fun, informal and you’ll get used to me being around you with a camera. And what’s more you’ll get some lovely images that celebrate your love in a more a relaxed, personal setting.

Session Fee: £175.00

Call/text me on 07920 422144 or send me an email via my contact page if you’d like more details about my pre-wedding portrait photo shoot.

I can also ensure I’m the right kind of wedding photographer for you.
