Because every wedding is different and no two couples’ requirements are the same, we prefer to provide customised quotes for our work rather than offer a set list of packages and prices. That said we understand that you’ll want an idea of the kind of prices we charge before talking to us direct. We can assure you that our prices won’t break the bank and to give you an idea coverage for a small mid week wedding starts at just £300 while larger weekend weddings start at £700. All options include unlimited photos taken at your wedding, an online password protected viewing gallery and a special softback magazine style preview book containing all of the images taken.
So what does our coverage offer and how do we approach your big day?
We offer all couples a no obligation informal meeting where we can talk through your plans and show you some samples of our work and products. It’s at this meeting that you can work out which coverage is best for you and give us an idea of how your day will run. As a general rule 90% of couples we meet with end up booking with 2up Wedding Photography.
Pre wedding shoot
More and more couples are choosing to have a pre wedding or engagement shoot as part of their package. These give us the chance to get to know each other a bit before the big day. We will also provide you with some lovely images that can be used in the build up to your wedding on invitations (which we can design and print for you) and on your personal wedding website. A pre-wedding shoot is great fun and can take place wherever you choose – from the city to the beach.
The BIG day….preparations
For many couples the getting ready shots (for both Bride and Groom) are key to recording the whole experience of their day. This is a very special time full of nerves and excitement where we focus on personal moments along with key elements like your flowers, the dress and shoes.
The ceremony and after
Whether it’s a small registry office wedding or large church affair, the key to getting the best shots is discreetly being in the right place at the right time. For all weddings we will recce the venue/s in advance to ensure that we are completely familiar with the setting and layout. We also talk to the Registrar or Vicar so that we are clear about where we can go and what we can photograph as every setting is different. As a general rule we don’t use flash during the ceremony.
Once you are married we will take lots of informal shots of you and your guests along with any group shots that you would like. We also like to schedule in some time with just the two of you together for some intimate romantic shots. If you don’t require us to stay for the wedding breakfast and the speeches we will set up a cake cutting shot before we leave. Otherwise we will stay to record the laughter (and often tears!) of the wedding speeches along with the actual cutting of the cake.
The evening reception
For many couples, the evening reception offers them the chance to invite more guests to celebrate with them. We are happy to document as much of the evening as you wish – from the arrival of your guests to your first dance and beyond if required.
After the wedding
Once your day is over we set to work sorting through the images captured during your wedding day. A considerable amount of time is spent on the final images selected – this will include enhancing, cropping and colour correcting where needed. Within two weeks of your wedding all of these best images (and usually a mix of colour and black and white images) will be available to view online (password protected if required). We do not limit ourselves to a set number of images but as a general rule a full coverage package (from preparations to first dance) will be around 500 images. All of these images will also be presented to you in a 10×8 magazine style softcover photo book which is yours to keep. Both the book and gallery will help you choose the final images for your album.
