We love to capture beautiful and natural images that you will treasure forever. Photographs that will bring back amazing memories. Photographs that capture your uniqueness on your wedding day. Most of our brides and grooms will admit we offer so much more than photography, our experience will shine through to many areas of your wedding day. With all of our wedding packages we offer full copyright with the images being presented on a crystal heart USB. So you never have to choose between images, you can have them all. Our turnaround time from your wedding, to receiving your wedding collection on USB is never any more than 4 weeks, but typically we like to be around 2-3 weeks so you can relive your magical day, and of course show them off to all your friends, and family. We offer appointments where you can view our work in more detail. We can talk about what you want to achieve with your photographs. You might have a particular style in mind that we could explore. We just love to learn about your details - your passions, how you got together, the themes of the wedding, people attending who are overly special, etc. What's important to you, is important to us to capture. So therefore we can tell a full story in your photographs from beginning to end. We are unique that we offer so many styles of album, from traditional, contemporary, cutting edge style, and the weird and wonderful! The last time I looked I think we do over 100 different types of album.

What is your most memorable wedding?
I love all my weddings, they all have something different, and wondrous. I do like to think that me and the team connect with all of our couples and make their wedding day the best it possibly can be from the photography aspect.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Vibrant Friendly Directive Creative
What about your business are you most proud of?
Every aspect; we put our heart and souls into what we do. Having worked on ITV Emmerdale set many times doing wedding and event photography is a great feather in my cap. I'm also proud that my children want to do what I do when they grow up, they also say that my name is "Jo Bennett Photography" if they ever introduce me to their friends, which always warms my heart.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have it for yourselves, parents, friends, suppliers, will give so much information and guidance but really go with your heart and have the day you've always dreamed of.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I've seen lots of little touches that have made a wedding very special from grandparents wedding rings being used, to surprise gifts being given before the ceremony, to surprise cars, surprises of couples dancing. But one of my all time favourite moments at a wedding was when the groom surprised his wife by singing. I will set the scene; the speeches had concluded, and the guests had been told there would be a 10 minute interval. Upon returning a large screen was in front of the stage the TV came on and it was the groom and his groomsmen acting as Take That and what they get up to at home they were called "Take This and That" I don't know if I'm describing it in its best light but the production was fabulous and the reaction was great from the crowd. The curtain then dropped and all 5 of them performed some of Take That's best hits. They had learnt dance routines, solo pieces, and the guests loved every minute of it and his wife was so shocked, happy, proud, emotional etc. As we was a team of two that day all reactions were captured as we usually know about surprises you might be planning so that we can capture the reactions for you. It was a great moment to see over 150 guests doing the dance routine to Never Forget and singing along. And just to add the groom was nervous as this is something he would never normally do
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't have an answer for this. I believe each couple will have their own signature image which will be their own personal #1 image, because there will be emotion and an experience attached and when they view that image those feelings will come through. It can't be the same for everyone.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I would say capturing the effects of powder paint throwing!!! The white dress was completely covered in vibrant powder paint. It was a great experience to be part of, and I still have some colour on my lens hood which always makes me smile!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Be brave, and embrace it. We would also use the rain to our advantage; reflective puddle shots, lighting behind the couple to highlight the rain, umbrella poses etc......
