Full Description
I love weddings! I am at my happiest when I am capturing a couple exchanging vows, surrounded by the joy and love radiating from their family and friends. With my relaxed and friendly approach, I will have you and your guests at ease. (Also, as I am rather short, I am rarely noticed whilst mingling taking candid shots which are 100% natural). All collections are tailored to suit your specific requirement, I will start and finish when you want me to. All collections include USB with printing rights and an album box set. Prices range between £799 - £1699. Optional add-ons are available such as framed prints, canvas wraps etc...

Made us feel at ease
We had the pleasure of having Vicky and Phil as our wedding photographers. They made us feel at ease throughout the entire process and we were blown away by every single photo that was taken. It was hard to choose a small portion of them for our album! We would highly recommend them to anyone. A lovely, professional couple who will capture moments that will be cherished forever. Thank you both so much!

One of the best decisions we made
We selected Philip Charles after our first meeting with Vicky at their Studio. We were greeted with a warm welcome and immediately felt at ease. The service was excellent with everything handled professionally but with a personal and caring touch. One touch we appreciated was the helpful advice Vicky made in planning our photographs. Having listened to what we wanted; Vicky was able to make helpful suggestions about what would work well on the day. Her experience helped with the family and group shots ensuring things went smoothly on the day. We got married at an unusual venue which Vicky visited with us beforehand recommending shots that worked brilliantly for us. Thank you for capturing some beautiful pictures for our perfect day.

Absolutely effortless!
We hit the jackpot when we came across Phil & Vicky! From the second we met them both we felt relaxed and confident - they were the first photographers we had seen and we booked there and then! We had such a laugh every step of the way. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know them both and have them right beside us on the biggest and best day our lives.

Perfect! Great pictures, price and experience
Very understanding, relaxed, calming and professional. Perfect experience. I was a nervous bride that hates having picture taken, Vicky really put me at ease. Pictures were just what I asked for. Thank you :)

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

A masquerade wedding. Everyone wore masks, even the venue staff, and the bride wore a stunning peacock blue dress.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Elegant, Timeless, Relaxed, Flexible

What about your business are you most proud of?

When our happy couples return to us a couple of years later with their growing family.

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

Don't get overwhelmed. Write a list of what needs to be done and take it one item at a time. I love spreadsheets, so this was a must when we planned our wedding.

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

A framed photograph of a missing loved one on the top table.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Initial meet up to talk about your wedding photography coverage and package. We then catch up four weeks before the big day to discuss the timings of your day and your personalised shot list, ensuring we note any specific group shots. On the big day, leave it all to me.

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

A portrait of just the two of you looking relaxed, happy and totally in love.

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

Every wedding is unique. The most recent is going to the couple's home to take photos of them with their dogs as they couldn't attend the wedding.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the British weather. In many cases we can find a location in the venue, such as a staircase, a fireplace. Worst case scenario, there's always umbrellas.

Describe how you got into photography.

My husband is a very passionate professional photographer and he has passed on the bug to me. Over the years he has been my mentor, critiquing my images to help me achieve the images I want to create.
