Small & Micro Weddings

Small is Beautiful!

Photography for Smaller Weddings In & Around The Midlands

There’s a lovely intimacy to small weddings, the kind you only get with your closest friends, your closest family and over the years these have been some of our very favourites to photograph. Pandemic restrictions have created a renewed interest in smaller weddings and they’re more personal and gorgeous than ever!

If you’re planning a  small or micro wedding,  elopement, a vow renewal or even if you’re downsizing your wedding then we’d love to hear from you.

Gorgeous Photography for
Shorter Wedding Days

Whether you’ve loved the idea of an intimate wedding all along, or are reworking your original plans into something smaller, we’ll photograph your day with empathy, life, a keen eye for detail and our own added gorgeousness.

Just the same as with our full-day weddings, the majority of our pictures are captured naturally without direction.  Of course we’ll do group photos of your nearest and dearest, but most of our pictures are about moments as they unfold and the surroundings they take place in – the light, the shade and the emotions.  We also love to get you away on your own for a little while to create some beautiful ‘couple’ images which take advantage of the location you’ve chosen.

There’s no cheese and no awkward fakery.  We’d rather keep your photos fresh, classy and unobtrusive.

“Rob was always responsive to any questions or advice we were seeking in terms of plans or timings. He was very professional and it was a very quick turnaround for photos. We were really happy with the photos he took and moments that he captured of our big day. Highly recommended for a personal and outstanding service.”

Packages & Pricing

Our options for smaller weddings start at £500 for two hours and would typically include arrivals at the venue, ceremony, hugs, confetti and groups and some time for  those all-important ‘couple’ pictures.

Options beyond 2 hours could include ‘getting ready’ in the morning, drinks reception and beyond.  You are also welcome to book for much longer if you are having a wedding day which extends into the evening.

  • An online chat prior to the big day.  Talking through the plan for the day really helps us be prepared and we’ll probably give you lots of tips and suggestions, based upon on our extensive experience.

Five Reasons To Love Smaller Weddings

It’s just you and your most important people

Keeping your guest list short doesn’t have to be a negative thing.  Many of our couples have said that it’s also liberating.

 Less stress & pressure

Fewer guests means fewer considerations.  You can concentrate on a day that caters just for yourselves and people you’re closest to.

Enjoy more of what’s important

Wedding ‘traditions’ have their place, but you don’t have to include them.  A small wedding gives you the opportunity to dispense with some of them and use the time for what you really enjoy.

Choose a cosy, more intimate venue

Many wedding venues are set up to cater for 100 or more guests, but there are some really lovely boutique venues which are more suited a smaller wedding with a shorter guest list.

Splash out on amazing food & drink

For those into their fine dining smaller weddings are great choice.  Rather than having to cater for dozens, you can go for a more intimate venue which offers superlative eating and drinking.
