Your photos actually made me re-live the day, which is fortunate as I don’t really remember It.

I have looked at them so many times now, it’s hard to take them all in at once! We love them! They really reflect how we were feeling (happy but a little bit nervous!) which was one of the things that was very important to me.  I also love the ones of us in the street – my favourite picture is the one of us walking past the picture shop – it’s so different – I’ve never seen anything like it. They are exactly what we wanted. 
Rebecca and Dennis

We will never tire of looking at these pictures, not only because of what they represent but also because of the emotion and sincerity of the day which you have caught so perfectly.

Alison, we wanted to say a huge thank you for creating such delightful wedding day memories for us with your beautiful wedding photography. We had the most wonderful time and thanks to your talent and skill we get to relive those happy memories over and over again every time we view our gorgeous photos. We simply can’t tell you how thrilled we are with your images which have captured some perfect moments in time for us to forever cherish.

So hopefully you’ll see, I’m a wedding photographer with a non-cheesy approach for couples who want the best photos of themselves, and their guests, … without being overly posed.

I photograph real moments.

You don’t always see everything and, as your wedding day whirls by, you may not remember everything.

It’s the photos of fleeting moments which can’t be repeated showing the love, the laughter, the smiles and the tears, which you’ll treasure in years to come.

I have developed a pretty good instinct for when something is going to happen from the way people interact with each other.    In addition, my calm personality means I blend in at weddings rather than take over.

FAQ’s about my approach to photographing weddings.

That’s great.   You can message me at alison@alisonedwardsphotography.co.uk or call me on 07977 499473.   Or complete the contact form on my website and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

The number of photos varies from wedding to wedding and the length of coverage. As an average, I provide approximately 400-500+ individual images for all day coverage.  There will be less images for shorter wedding coverage.   I don’t provide photos for the sake of making up numbers nor do I keep photos from you because I have reached a set amount.  My main focus us to provide you with quality photos.

I provide most of the photos in colour and black and white. Therefore the number of photos quoted above more or less doubles.  If I feel a photo doesn’t work in colour, I may just provide the black and white version. However, if you wish to see the colour, just ask.

Of course. I appreciate that everyone likes some formal photos but I suggest these are kept to around 6 different group photos.   This is so that you and your guests can enjoy the day without waiting around for endless group photos which is what couples will comment on when they have attended friend’s weddings.   The more you have, the more it will impact on your celebrations.

You may require less or slightly more but this is always something I talk to couples about prior to your wedding.

Yes.  All the details that make your wedding unique deserve to remembered.

Note: This may not apply to shorter coverage depending on the length of coverage booked.

This varies depending on how long you would like. As long as I know what you want, I will plan accordingly. It could be around 15-20 minutes for small venues but for larger venues with more grounds to cover, this may be longer. If you only want a handful of couple portraits – that’s ok too. I’m not one of those photographers who whisk couples away from their guests for hours  (unless, of course, you want me to) and my “posing” is natural rather than forced poses. 

For all day coverage, photos can take up to 8 weeks to be ready to view especially during peak wedding season. I do my utmost to present them to you as soon as possible. It’s very important to me that I provide you with the best quality service and give my full attention to your photos. In the first instance, your photos will be uploaded to a password protected gallery which you can share with your family and friends. Shortly after, your USB will be posted to you.

I certainly do.  These can be included in wedding package at the time of booking or after your wedding.  Including a wedding album at the time of booking secures any price increase.  

The turnaround for wedding albums is up to  8 weeks from the date you approve the final layout. All album content and layout is submitted to you for approval before ordering.

All weddings including church weddings, civil ceremonies, same-sex weddings, Chinese tea ceremonies and Asian weddings. I have photographed at many different venues such as stately homes, castles, village halls and marquees to name but a few.

In addition to all day coverage, I also offer shorter coverage by the hour for micro weddings.

Travel is included for all day coverage within the East Midlands.  For shorter coverage, mileage may be charged of Nottingham.   Mileage is charged at 45p per mile from NG5 7NE.   If overnight accommodation is required due to distance and start and finish times, these costs will be agreed with you at the time of booking. 

Fortunately, I’m fit and healthy and, to date, I’ve never notbeen able to attend a wedding.  I would have to be on death’s door to not turn up and in this instance, I would call upon the network of photographers I have to step in.  

This is my full-time job which I am fully committed to.   

Yes. As a professional photographer, I have full public liability insurance.

Living in Nottingham, I have photographed 100’s of weddings at East Midlands Venues and throughout the UK.

As a Nottingham wedding photographer, I take on the responsibility to be the person who, after the vows have been exchanged and the cake has been eaten, will provide you with lasting memories for years to come.
