- My style of wedding photography is natural, candid, elegant, creative and romantic. I offer 3 main packages starting from £750 to suit your budget, including GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE. Please see my website for more detailed information. I'm a full-time wedding photographer covering wedding venues in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and London. I also cover Weddings throughout the rest of the UK and International destinations. From a very young age I have always been interested in photography, partly inspired by the fact that my grandfather Graham Thompson was a Royal photographer for the British Royal Family and my late father, Maurice Thompson, was a Film Director. My passion for photography led me to achieve a number of qualifications in the UK, successfully completing a Diploma in Professional Photography at Cambridge Art College, and a Diploma in Press Photography at Sheffield University. I went on to work for the Maidenhead Advertiser newspaper in Berkshire, covering news, Royal photography, celebrities, politics and sports followed by an opportunity to work for France Press in Paris covering sporting events, documentary news and publicity photos. My 20 years of experience has led me to diversify into wedding ..photography which gives me enormous joy and fulfilment
