COVID-19 Update
Covid 19 has had a massive impact on weddings for this year. If you're a current couple having to postpone or change your wedding plans then I wish you all the best in making your new wedding even better than your original one! If you're planning your wedding for next year and beyond then I am happy to accept bookings. I've recently changed my terms of business to add clauses around Covid 19 including refunds for dates being cancelled due to Government lockdowns. If you've already booked me as your wedding photographer then I would've emailed you recently to reassure you I am committed to capture your wedding. It's very important you keep me in the loop regards any new potential dates if you need to rearrange. Please email me if you want to discuss a new booking or have any questions on your existing booking. Most of all please stay safe!

Full Description
So what's my style? Well, I could say I'm a documentary, candid, fun, alternative, natural, cool, modern with a few quirky angles and classic portraiture thrown in type of photographer, that should just about cover all the bases! In fact I don't commit to one style as I find it too limiting. My style is more "that's a great photo" so I take it there and then, or "this would make a great photo" so I ask you to take a step to your left, or better still I'll move to my right, voila! I don't know what your wedding day will be like, barn or castle, winter or summer, a simple rustic affair or the most lavish wedding day you can think of. I don't know if it will be sunshine or rain, DJ or band, a marquee in the garden or The Ritz. But I promise you here and now, choose me as your wedding photographer and I will capture all of the feeling, the unplanned howlers, the real laughs, the genuine happiness between you guys and your family and friends. I will record in a real, natural and authentic way, in the most beautiful photographs, the amazing day you two love birds got married. Promise! (or as the kids say, swear down). Have a nosey on my Bridebook profile or visit my website at www.damianburcher.com to get a better feel for my wedding photography. Please please also check my reviews to see what couples said about me and my photography. I've been shooting weddings for several years and have completed over 200 at some of the most beautiful venues, barns, castles, private gardens, marquees, fancy hotels and festival type tipis. It really is the best job in the world. Two people in love, surrounded by their friends and family, big celebration, big party and I'm there basically doing my hobby!! Based in the centre of the country I take wedding photography all over the UK. Popular dates get booked many many months in advance so please contact me and I'll provisionally hold the date for you if available.

All of our guests loved Damian!
All of our guests loved Damian! Right from the start he had a great sense of humour. It was really important to us not to have an album full of serious posed photos as that isn’t really us and Damian didn’t fail to deliver. He seemed to capture our guests just at the right moment as they burst into fits of laughter which just summed up the essence of our day perfectly. Great guy, great photographer who I couldn’t recommend highly enough! Thank you so much! Amanda and Andrew

By far the best wedding pictures I’ve ever seen.
What an absolutely amazing photographer!! You were fantastic at putting people at ease. The pre-wedding shoot took us from being apprehensive about the big day to super excited for it. You captured all the right moments, making them natural and relaxed. All the guests at the wedding loved you and had a great time having a laugh with you. I’ve just watched the showreel and cried through the whole 11 minutes of it. By far the best wedding pictures I’ve ever seen. Anna and Ben

Damian you were absolutely brilliant from the day we booked our wedding with you until the day we received our photos. Our guests all commented on how great you were and how tirelessly you worked for the whole day. Our photos are amazing and the showreel is better than we could have ever imagined. We would 100% recommend you. Melissa and Tom

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

The magical wedding of Rhian and Kris. An outdoor summer wedding in August when it threatened to rain but instead turned out to be a beautiful day with so much fun and laughter.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, relaxed, documentary, modern, romantic and quirky. Yes I know that's 6!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The response I get from couples once they have seen their photographs is priceless. I love the fact that they trust me to capture the most wonderful day of their lives and I am always grateful for that trust. I take such an immense pride knowing that the photographs I capture on a wedding day will be shown in their family for generations.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't get caught up in worrying about timetables and schedules. There are only one or two events that need to happen at a specific time so just let the day unfold and remember to take a few minutes away from it all every now and then to just spend time with each other.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I've seen this at quite a few weddings and I always love it. It's when a couple have photos of their own parents and grandparents wedding day dotted around the venue, it always makes me feel they are entering into something bigger than themselves.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Firstly to spend time with them to make sure they are happy with me on a personal level, if we don't get on then that will come across on the photographs. Also before the day we will meet to do a little venue visit and do a short practice portrait shoot. This means that on their wedding day it's the third time we've met and they have already had their photo taken by me. This means we are all so much more relaxed on the big day enabling us to get wonderful emotive images.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

A beautiful couples portrait.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I don't really get asked for specific types of photo other than ones with certain family etc. I have a few photos on my website that couples sometimes say "we'd love one like that" and I have a few secret compositions, poses and techniques I'll use.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Firstly it's not very often it will rain all day so just go with it. Don't let rain spoil your day. In fact you can get some really dramatic images with rain. I've been very lucky that it has only rained on a few of my weddings. From a creative view it really helps as you have to work a little harder to still get great looking images even when circumstances aren't the best.

Describe how you got into photography.

Think like most good wedding photographers it was a bit of a hobby to start. Friends knew I liked photography and so I'd get asked to bring my camera along to their wedding etc and it took off from there. I always say though I was good at photography first before I ever shot a wedding. In fact I don't say I'm a Wedding Photographer, I say I'm a Photographer who photographs weddings.
