No Two Weddings Are Ever The Same

Weddings are as unique and as individual as the couple getting married. They’re never the same. So there should never be a one size fits all approach to your wedding. As a documentary wedding photographer I want to document the unique moments, natural emotions and real stories that occur within your individual wedding story.

No staging fake moments. No barking instructions. No asking anyone to say cheese.

Bespoke & Destination Wedding Collections

High Vineyard West Sussex Wedding Photography Sienna Phil

Weddings are always different and unique to the couples involved. That’s why I am always happy to work with you to provide a bespoke collection that might not be covered by the above collections.  This way you can get the exact wedding photography collection you want.

This is often ideal for weddings longer than the usual day or couples getting married abroad. I will usually offer a reduced rate for some destination weddings.

I do not provide wedding coverage of less than 6 hours – simply because I believe to properly document a wedding story, a minimum of 6 hours is required.

Call/text me on 07920 422144 or send me an email via my contact page if you’d like to discuss a bespoke collection for your wedding day.

Optional Extra Add-ons

Gatton Hall Wedding Photography

Want to tailor your wedding photography package 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 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: £175.00
2nd Photographer + Drone Photography Price: £250.00

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 Story Photobooks

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

Wedding Story Photo Books are an affordable and contemporary way to document your wedding story.  These will usually consist of between 50-75 images that narrate the story of your day.

If you would like to order additional copies/sizes, for parents or as gifts, you have a number of size options to choose from:

  • Deluxe (33x28cm) 25 pages.  – ideal book for the couple as a memento of their wedding day – *included with the Wedding Storyteller PLUS. Price: £175.00
  • Standard (25x20cm)  – ideal book for the parents as a memento of the wedding day. Price: £150.00
  • Mini Square (18x18cm) 25 pages – ideal as gifts for others. Price: £125.00

Traditional Wedding Albums

I can also offer more traditional wedding albums.  Given the numerous options available I will discuss this with you in person, but prices usually start from £500.00

Call/text me on 07920 422144 or send me an email via my contact page if you’d like more details about my wedding story photobooks or albums.

Pre-Wedding Portrait Photo Shoot

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.

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 + 5 FREE images.

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.

 

 

Travel & Accommodation Costs

Northants wedding photographer documents the wedding reception at the Northampton Marriott Hotel

There are no travel fees for all weddings within the Greater London area.  Outside of this I may ask for additional travel fees but I will always agree these with you first and keep them to a minimum.

For any travel in excess of 2.5 hours (either way), or where I have to leave home before 07:00am or will arrive home after 11:59pm I will usually ask for hotel accommodation to be provided.  As with any travel fees, I will always agree these with you in advance and will always keep them to a minimum.

Overseas weddings are treated differently.

Call/text me on 07920 422144 or send me an email via my contact page if you’d like more details about my travel and accommodation costs.
