Full Description
We like to record the moments that happen quickly on a wedding day, our style is informal & often mixed with Innovation. Photographing weddings, is exciting and totally absorbing for us, capturing those moments and documenting the emotion, party, speeches and night shots, not forgetting the smaller things, table settings, food, finer details of clothing, the setting Etc. Our plan will give you a full days photography from getting prepared, all the way through the day until the party shots into the evening. Images are provided in both colour and black & white, then forwarded to you on a USB presentation memory stick, all images are in high resolution. You can of course optionally choose a bespoke album design at any time to complete the package. We enjoy working in many areas, and have completed wide ranging wedding commissions from locations as remote as the Amalfi Coast in Italy to the Ritz Hotel in London through to the south east with its numerous Castles, Stately Homes and Hotels. More recently Nikon cameras used our wedding images for their 100th company anniversary company video. Please view our work at, www.visionaire.org.uk

Wonderful set of pictures!
We really can't believe our photos, the standard is stunning. I think it helps if your photographer can empathise, and become almost like a friend on the day, it certainly settled my nerves. Nikon the camera company have used their wedding images in the past. All I can say that if pictures are truly important to you then you could do a lot lot worse that approach this company. Recommended without hesitation.

We were quite nervous on the day Nigel made us feel so relaxed and chilled on the day, believe me much needed. The photo's exceeded our expectations by a mile. Stunning Photographer, beautiful wedding images, what more can you wish for. A very contented couple.

Our photos simply blew us away!
We got married late summer last year, Photography was something that was important us both. We did the usual run of wedding fayres in Kent and took in friends recommendations. We eventually decided upon Visionaire in Maidstone, their images looked a little different from the mainstream and the bonus, they seemed to have visited most locations, apparently not just in the South East but parts of Europe as well, so our expectations were at an all time high. But we were not expecting anything like this.. Wow, super creative photography, from the Informal's to all those blub bits. We were laughing then crying, the goose pimples were doing overtime. Their photography is special so were blowing out a hearty recommendation : )
