Full Description
It's your day so we want your to enjoy every moment and be able to relive it all again and again through story telling emotive stand-out images. 95% of your day is reportage, we'll document from the early morning nerves and anticipation through to those party moves into the night. We're with you all day, although we aim to be discreet so hopefully you wont even notice we're there :) The other 5% (lets say about 30 minutes) we'll don our extra creative hats and go for broke. We love a challenge and creating images that no-one else has attempted or realised before - so your wedding images are unique. Don't worry there's no posing or standing in funny awkward ways - you guys just enjoy each others company whilst we do the leg work. The end product is something we'd like to think you can hang on the wall, an artistic essence of the two of you on your wedding day. So that's it really! Why are we Pixies in the Cellar? Well we work in the cellar and 'humans in the cellar' just doesn't have the same ring does it! Contact us to check our availability for your wedding day photography.

If Sara and Pete are available for your big day then book them now....
From the moment Sara and Pete responded to our query to getting our shots back and then following up to check everything was as we had hoped they have both been amazing. Youll already be able to see what an amazing body of work utillising differing styles and effects they have. We had ideas of our own and they embraced those and gave us many more in the lead up to the day and on the day, they clearly had done a good recce of the venue beforehand. On the day nothing was too much trouble, an extra shot here or there, can we, should we, what about this, everything was totally fluid and they were as expert at marshalling everyone, in a good way, as they are photographers. Creating a wonderful documentary style for lots of smiles and moments we maybe didnt see on the day ourselves so going back over the shots is really like reliving the day and much more. If Sara and Pete are available for your big day then book them now and relax about the photography, from pre wedding meet, to ideas about not just the photographs but happy to give advice on all sorts of wedding related bumpf, and the images speak for themselves, and we got the images back so fast too. Thanks guys, amazing, Rob & Aimee X

We're both so happy!!
Our pictures are incredible and I STILL can't stop flicking through the online album. We don't even remember you being in places to take the photos that you did, but it was amazing going through them all as it's crazy how much you miss or just don't take in. Thank you so much again, we're both so happy!!

The photographs are amazing!
Just wanted to drop you an email to say a huge thank you and to say that the photographs are amazing! You have really captured some fantastic moments and going through them was like reliving the whole day all over again - we actually laughed out loud at some of the shots! You've also really captured our personalities and the personalities of our family and friends, which is brilliant. Everything about our interactions with you, from the initial emails to our first face-to-face meeting, to the way you were on the day was excellent. Everyone commented on how relaxed you made them all feel whilst taking photographs and how you made every effort to capture shots from all angles, even when wild dancing was taking place! Thank you so much for answering all of our questions and for the many suggestions you made to help support us and make our day so special. You really made us feel comfortable, as for most of it we weren't aware that we were being photographed! We literally could not have chosen a more perfect couple to shoot our wedding. Thanks again for all of your support and for helping us to capture the happiest day of our lives.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

What jumps to mind immediately is a goth wedding we shot on halloween, complete with full moon and jumping the broom! Loads of other weddings have moments that you remember as special but sometimes you just have to be there!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, dynamic, natural,

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

Time! It goes fast plan in as much time as possible for your day :)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Get on with each other :) Stay in the background, almost invisible if we can be for most of the day.A short wander with the two of you around your chosen venue/location to get some pics of the two of you just being you (but not surrounded by all your guests) Then back to the party :)

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

There isn't one depends on the couple, venue, time of year. It would be quite sad if each wedding had the same must have pic.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the weather - just enjoy your day no matter what the weather holds.

Describe how you got into photography.

Pete's bosses daughter decided he was artistic enough to take her wedding pics and the rest is history! Pete's always been arty, either in graphic design, oil paintings, photography all different mediums to end with a piece of art :) Sara well a biochemist by training, but science is like art really just no-one quite realises it ;)
