Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Nick Cheneler
I like to get to know my couples; to find out what centres them - the core of their relationship. How they met, where their first date was. I want to know the emotions they feel and to be able to laugh with them. When you book with me, it is important that we feel as comfortable with each other as possible, to allow for the most relaxed photographs.

I was so impressed with him...
Nick photographed my sister's wedding yesterday and I was so impressed with him as a person. He was very approachable, polite, funny and attentive. He listened to the Bride and what she wanted and generally just made the best effort. The few pictures I have seen so far are incredible and I can't wait to see the rest. Thanks!

Thank you so much to Nick (and Zack) for being our photographers and magic mirror suppliers on Saturday. I can not recommend them enough. They made us feel at ease and kept us laughing.

The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers

What is your most memorable wedding?

I would definitely say Mr & Mrs Hayes-Smith that I photographed in June 2018. They were very excited about the photography aspect of their special day and wanted to stray from the traditional posed photographs. They wanted to take a stroll through the Tamworth Castle Grounds and take a number of unique and quirky images that they had researched on Pinterest. They were fun, dynamic and such a beautiful couple - I will never forget them.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Discreet, Attentive, Adaptable & Modern.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of our company target - to continuously provide affordable coverage of such a special date in someones life. I don't agree with photographers that add 0's onto their photography due to it being for a 'wedding'.

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

On your wedding day, soak up all the love, joy and bliss! We have seen a lot of fear and stress on Wedding Days, which is completely understandable. But just try to remember to be present in each moment, all that hard work, planning and effort won't backfire at the last moment.

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

Wedding Jenga! Where guests sign a wooden block and have to build up a Jenga tower.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the enquiry has been made, I like to meet face-to-face with the couple (or on video call). This allows me to get to know the couple, find out what they're looking for and discuss the finer details. If the couple is happy, I will then ask for the deposit to secure my availability and draw up the contract for them to sign. I then send out a welcome pack including all the documents and regularly keep in contact. We will then meet up several weeks before the wedding to finalise details and collect final payment.

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

I definitely think the first kiss is a beautiful image as it is the first and most important kiss as a married couple.

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

The couple on an outdoor crazy golf course posing with a golf club.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

They say rain on a wedding day is good luck but make sure you bring plenty of umbrellas! They photograph too. If you ask any photographer - rainy, stormy weather makes amazing photographs. The light casts down in a beautiful way so don't dread the rain, it could make your images even better. Just focus on your partner and the day will run as smoothly as it can.

Describe how you got into photography.

My father brought me a semi professional camera when I was 11 years old and actively encouraged me to go out and take photographs. From there, I attended a media academy, and developed gradually into Wedding & Event photography before deciding I should start my own business.
