International WPJA award-winning photographer based in Gloucestershire. Also covering all regions across the UK and destination weddings abroad. My style of documentary wedding photography is natural, relaxed, fun and creative. I believe weddings are about people, so I like to capture real moments and real emotions. I don't dictate or create artificial, unnatural over posed images.
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Steve Catcheside
I consider myself very lucky to be a wedding photographer. To be asked to cover a wedding is like being invited to a big party and nothing gives me more pleasure than capturing those special moments at a wedding. If you like my style of photography then don't hesitate to get in contact, so we can discuss your wedding requirements.

What is your most memorable wedding?
I love covering all weddings, no matter where they are, but probably the wedding that sticks most in the mind is a wedding I covered on the Amalfi coast in Italy. It's just a truly spectacular location!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, relaxed, fun, creative, unique
What about your business are you most proud of?
Over the years I've covered hundreds of weddings, but I never tire of them. Each wedding is very different with different personalities and characters. What I'm most proud of is giving so much pleasure to the couples who enjoy my photographs after the wedding.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Obviously I'm biased but I think the most important part of any wedding is the photography. After all the flowers have wilted and the cake has been eaten, all you are left with are the photographs. So it pays to do your research and get the photographer you really want.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Probably the best thing at any wedding is when the couple really get into the day, enjoying every moment.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the enquiry, I set up an initial consultation, either in person over the phone or on skype. On the big day, I usually cover the wedding from the preparations right through to the first dance and beyond. I go about the day recording the events as they happen. I don't dictate I go about capturing the moments using the light, composition and timing to get the best possible images. Basically the more fun the couple have the better the images will be. That said most couples do like to have a few family and wedding party photos and I'm happy to do those.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Simply capturing a moment of pure joy
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I don't generally get asked to take a specific photo as you can't beat an image that happens naturally.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Rain doesn't have to ruin a wedding, in fact, I see it as just another photo opportunity. It's a great excuse to break out the umbrellas and the wellies!
Describe how you got into photography.
I started off as an art student and photography was part of my course. After college, I got a job as a junior sports photographer for a racing car magazine and newspaper in London. After that, I spent 10 years as a cruise ship photographer travelling the World. Finally, in 1999 I set up my own documentary wedding photography business and the business is still going strong to this day.
