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.

The pictures are incredible, actual perfection.
Damian came highly recommended from a friend and after we met him and saw his work we knew he would be a perfect addition to our wedding day. Our Loved Up shoot was hilarious, Damian completely put us at ease and for a shoot we were sort of dreading (who likes having their photo taken?!) we really enjoyed ourselves and the pictures came out amazing. On the wedding day I therefore didn’t have a care in the world. I knew Damian would capture it perfectly and he absolutely did, our family and friends loved him, he was more of a guest than a photographer! The pictures are incredible, actual perfection. The showreel is amazing, I just don’t have anything bad to say about Damian or his work. Thank you for everything! Love Amy & Brad xx

amian we can not thank you enough...
From the moment we contacted Damian regarding our wedding photography he was brilliant. We had the loved up photo shoot where we got to know him a bit better prior to the wedding and had such a laugh. He made us feel relaxed and most of all we trusted him from day one. Throughout our wedding he was brilliant and captured our day perfectly, also the quality of the photographs and our showreel are perfect. Damian we can not thank you enough, you are our life long photographer now. Natalie and Gary

You totally smashed it!
Hi Damian You totally smashed it! Thank you so so so so much, the showreel and photographs are way beyond our expectation – you captured the spirit and sentiment of the day absolutely perfectly! By the way, our guests loved you immediately, assumed you were a friend of the family and were disappointed when you left! Maybe you should consider doing this photography thing for a living! Thanks once again. Amanda & Gareth

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

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

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

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

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.

What about your business are you most proud of?

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 No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

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

A beautiful couples portrait.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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

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.

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

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

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.

Describe how you got into photography.

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.
