MICRO WEDDINGS

RELAXED PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY FOR INTIMATE AND SMALLER WEDDINGS

layered micro wedding street scene in London. In the foreground we can see the bride in her dress, holding her train in one hand and bouquet in the other. Behind and left is a bridesmaid in a multi-coloured dress holding a bridesmaid bouquet. Left of her and furthest away the groom bends down and holds the hand of a young wedding guest with a child in a pram framed between them. On the far left of the image and on the same plane as the bridesmaid a girl in a blue dress and sunglasses stands with her arms behind her back

UNINTRUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE MOST INTIMATE OF WEDDINGS

Making Small Moments Big Since 2006

One of our favourite things about wedding photography and videography is just how unique every single wedding is, regardless of the many traditions that typically help to shape the day. From the grandest events and most crowded dance floors to the most intimate micro weddings with just your closest friends and family present, to us it really makes no difference: we love to capture every wedding just the way it was and celebrate the people and relationships between those who were present, however few or many that happens to be.

Whilst we love all those different types of wedding, as documentary photographers  (and especially with our street photography influences) it’s perhaps the smaller weddings where we truly thrive. Our photography and films are, at their heart, all about trying to express the personalities and relationships of the bride and groom and their loved ones, and the fewer people there are in attendance the more opportunity we have to fully explore that.

Our favourite parts of a wedding are always the quiet moments, the in-between moments, the times when seemingly nothing much is really happening yet stories are unfolding all around us. Our street documentary wedding photography style isn’t a record of the activities that take place on a wedding day, it’s the story of the people that partake in them.

Micro wedding scene in the courtyard of a couple's home in Kent. At the front centre of the frame the groom (in full military dress uniform) is seated smoking a cigarette, his face in partial shadow. Behind and to the left a woman in sunglasses and a white dress looks to her left. Right of her a man in a suit covers his eyes with his hands. Framed to his right a man in a kilt is walking towards the edge of the frame. Far left a man in extravagant dress is framed in the doorway of the Tudor style house.

PHOTO & FILM - A FAMILY TEAM OF MICRO WEDDING SPECIALISTS

Discreet documentary style wedding photography & videography to put your guests at ease

When you’re planning a micro wedding the last thing you want is for your photographer and videographer to be a distraction. Our relaxed documentary style means that we won’t ask anyone to pose, change their position or do something again, we capture everything right there in the moment so your guests can just relax and forget we’re even there.

We’re a family team and work together on a wedding day to make sure that, in such intimate surroundings, you get the most out of both your photos & wedding film. We intimately know how each other work and understand which moments will work better for photos or best for film so we won’t crowd your guests or battle each other for the shot – we’ll prioritise your guest’s comfort and work together to ensure that both photo & film are the best they can possibly be.

Rear left a man in a suit points towards the centre rear of the frame whilst holding a child in his other arm. Next to him a woman stands, another child playing with her dress and mostly hidden amongst the folds.

COVID SECURE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY

Whilst we’re a family team of four, for micro weddings we typically provide one photographer and one videographer – typically husband and wife Matt and Dominique so that we can blend in more easily with the guests and make sure we’re never overcrowding you. As we’re a married couple (and incidentally had a micro-wedding ourselves so are huge fans of the format!) we’re one secure household bubble so can help to minimise any possible risk related to Covid-19. If for any reason though Matt & Dom were unable to attend then brothers Liam (photographer) and Alex (videographer) are ready to step in – both live in different parts of the country (and in different towns to Dom & Matt) so you can have peace of mind that when you book our services your wedding will be beautifully captured no matter what.

York Place Studios are incredible photographers and truly lovely people. We ended up having our wedding in the midst of COVID and decided to go ahead with two weeks’ notice. Dom was so professional and understanding throughout and did the most amazing job, as did her husband Matt who filmed our ceremony at extremely short notice. Despite our original guest list of 150, we ended up as only a party of 16 due to all the restrictions but Dom wasn’t fazed in the slightest and slotted in effortlessly, putting everyone at ease. The photography itself really enhanced the day and the end result was just amazing. It’s been such a pleasure to share our photos with friends and family - they are simply stunning. We have literally dozens upon dozens of mind blowing photos that you would want to frame. If you’re debating whether or not to go with York Place then don’t - it’ll be the best wedding planning decision you will make!

Using additional unmanned cameras and pro audio equipment our full ceremony films are professionally edited to capture multiple angles and the best possible sound quality so that all of your guests can enjoy the ceremony as if they were there.

We can now offer professional live streaming services for your ceremony, allowing any who are unable to attend to watch on from the comfort of their homes, or even from another room or venue.

With over 10 years experience of handling the technical side of live events prior to becoming filmmakers though we know that, whilst we use top quality professional equipment, with technology things can always go wrong, and that’s why with all of our streaming services we’ll also record the event in full for you and your guests to enjoy afterwards in the form of a fully polished and edited ceremony film.
