Wedding Photography Packages.

460px wedding photography by bryan 24

Every wedding is unique and no two couples want the same thing.

My standard UK wedding day package is £1,600 £1,300 with some of my bigger destination wedding packages going up to around £6,700.

You can see 3 special offers exclusive to Hitched members for your guidance here ➢, but I am happy to put together a package designed around your wedding day and your needs. , we’ll talk about what you want and how you have planned your budget.

That way we can come up with the best solution designed around your wedding day.

In all cases, I take an initial payment of £500 (£1,000 for destination weddings) to secure your date and the balance for your package will be payable no less than 1 month before your wedding date.

You can always leave things like wedding albums out of your main wedding package and decide on those items after the wedding.

Hitched Wedding Photography Packages.

Video Special.

For a limited time Packages 2 & 3 will include some special video elements, you will receive 360° VR ready video of the wedding speeches and your first dance. I think this is especially valuable for the wedding speeches, I have listened to hundreds of wedding speeches and I know the couples would love to relive and hear the loving words spoken by friends and family.

As this is a 360 Virtual Reality video you can look in any direction during the speeches and see your guests reactions.

The first dance is a special moment and one you may want to relive even if your dance is a simple shuffle around the dance floor.

If you have a VR headset like an Oculus Quest or other headset you will be able to watch these parts of your wedding in the full immersive experience

This is a new feature I am adding to my packages so for a limited time it will be included in the top 2 packages for Hitched members. It will soon become a £500+ add on across the board as it currently is with my standard packages.

Full days coverage.

Full days coverage normally starts about 2 hours before the wedding service and ends after the couple’s first dance.

It is generally around 8 hours. If you have booked two photographers one will be with you and the other will be with your partner during the morning’s preparations.

This is a nice way to lead you into the day and get some beautiful images of some of your wedding details, likes dresses, suits, jewellery and flowers as well as capturing some of the pre-wedding excitement.

Pre-wedding shoot.

A great way for us to get to know each other a little before the wedding day, we will always have our pre-wedding planning meeting (in person if possible) but an engagement/pre-wedding shoot is a chance for us to make some pretty pictures together.

It helps me learn how to best pose you guys, if I need to do any posing at all, what types of images you want and of course, it will give you some extra images that you can use for invitations, save the date cards or something to hang on your wall at home.

Back to the packages ➢

A second photographer.

I would recommend having a second photographer if you are having a larger wedding, maybe more than 100 guests.

I gives you some flexibility and the opportunity to have more beautiful images from your wedding. For example, during the wedding ceremony, you would have images taken from the front and the rear of the venue (venue limitation may apply).

During the day a second perspective will capture more of those special moments that take place at a wedding. And if you want morning preparation images of both yourself and your partner a second photographer will make this possible especially if you are getting ready at different places.

Back to the packages ➢

All edited digital files.

All of my wedding photography packages include the full set of edited digital files.

These files will be suitable for most printers so you will be free to make prints for your home, as gifts for friends and family and even arrange to have your own wedding album designed and printed. You can of course order all your printed media from me but you have the option and flexibility to arrange your own too.

Does it include every picture taken on the day? No, and you wouldn’t want it to. As part of the editing process, I take out bad shots, maybe I caught you as you were about to sneeze, trust me that generally isn’t a good look, during the formal group shots I may take 3 or 4 images of each group to try to not get uncle bob blinking. And believe it or not, I take the occasional bad image that nobody wants to see.

Depending on your day, the number of guests you have, the activities of the day, the venue and if you have requested a second photographer you will receive somewhere between 300 and 600 images, All of these images will have been edited by me to ensure you are getting the best possible and inclusive story of your wedding day.

Back to the packages ➢

Online gallery.

Every wedding gets its own gallery page hosted on my website, you will be the first to see your wedding images and this is your opportunity to let me know if you would like any changes made to the pictures.

Once you are happy with the finished gallery this is the ideal place for you to share your wedding with your friends and family.

It is also the perfect place for me to showcase my work to help other couples find me and see if my style suits them, so I can find more amazing couples to work with.

Back to the packages ➢

Wedding slideshow.

All weddings include a highlight slideshow of selected images set to music, this is a snapshot that tells the story of the wedding day and is ideal for sharing on your favourite social media platform.

Back to the packages ➢

Wedding album.

You can include a wedding album as part of your wedding photography package or you can wait until you’ve seen the finished gallery before you decide.

The included 20-page album is designed to be an introductory album and if I design an album for you it is likely to be more than 20 pages and will tell the story as I saw it unfold. Together we will then add or remove pages until the album fits your needs.

All the album options I offer are made to a very high standard of quality and are hand-finished bespoke wedding albums made in Italy. During our initial meeting, we will probably look at some albums so that you can make a more informed decision about if they are right for you and your wedding day.

Back to the packages ➢

8 Hours coverage.

Over the past 12 years photographing weddings I have found that 8 hours is about the best length of coverage for most weddings.

I normally start about 2 hours before the wedding ceremony with preparation and detail shots, the ceremony, wedding speeches, wedding breakfast, cake cutting, couples photoshoot and first dance among other key moments are all captured in that time.

8 hours normally takes us to the first dance and after that the mood of your wedding is generally less formal.

I like to wrap up with some images of your guests joining you on the dance floor and capture the party feel that is taking over the wedding day then I will leave you and your guests to enjoy your evening.

If you feel that you need more or less coverage let me know and together we will come up with a wedding photography package to suit you and your wedding day.

Back to the packages ➢

Let’s Talk.

It’s always good to have options right?

If you just want to get some more information and an idea of the price fill in the form below or email me.

If you’d like to have a chat in more detail give me a call and let’s talk a little more about your wedding day, that way we can get to know each other a little and talk about how we might work together.
Or send me a message to let me know the best time to call you guys so we can have an informal chat.

I think it’s important for us to have a little connection. Your wedding is an important day and it’s just as important to me to feel comfortable with you guys as it is for you to feel relaxed with me.

Trust me it doesn’t matter who you work with your pictures will come out better if you work with a photographer that you feel relaxed with.

The complete list of award winners for the different categories can be found at hitched.co.uk/wedding-awards.

26 of January of 2022.

Hitched.co.uk, part of The Knot Worldwide Group – a global leader in the wedding sector – is kicking off 2022 by announcing the names of the wedding professionals and businesses that have won a Hitched Wedding Award.

Weddings have been one of the sectors hardest hit by the pandemic and both professionals and couples have risen to the occasion. They have worked harder than ever to be able to continue celebrating love safely and now after weddings practically came to a standstill in 2020, and 2021 was a year focused on recovery, the time has come for the most important recognition in the sector: the Hitched Wedding Awards.

Wedding Photography By Bryan of Lancashire has been awarded Best Wedding Photographers in the Hitched Wedding Awards 2022. This accolade demonstrates how valued this vendor is within the sector, as so many couples they have worked with have left them positive feedback.

The Knot Worldwide has been rewarding deserving wedding businesses with awards for nearly a decade – but this year in particular, the awards recognise businesses and individuals who have gone above and beyond to serve their clients during one of the most testing times the industry has ever experienced.

The Hitched Wedding Awards recognise excellence offered by wedding businesses in the UK and signify a trusted seal of approval for couples planning their weddings.

This year’s awards are based on nearly 8 million opinions from couples who use Hitched and their international counterparts to help plan their weddings – there is no better judge than a happy couple who have experienced

the vendor’s work first-hand, after all!

More than 16,000 venues and suppliers participated in this year’s Hitched Wedding Awards. Wedding Photography By Bryan received several glowing reviews on Hitched, making them the winner of the award in their field.

“Here at Hitched we are delighted to be able to celebrate wedding businesses who go above and beyond for their couples,” says Zoe Burke, Editor.

“It’s been an unbelievably difficult few years for our sector, so it means so much to us that we can commend these businesses, and reward and recognise them for their efforts, based on honest feedback from the couples who have worked with them.

“We received so many incredible reviews for so many different businesses – it’s so positive to see!”

“This year, for the first time, we are awarding these prizes simultaneously in 13 of the 16 countries where The Knot Worldwide is present. We are therefore in a moment of great recognition and prestige for the professionals of the wedding sector in the UK as they become part, along with the winners of countries like France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil or the USA among others, of the best wedding professionals in the world,” says Jose Melo, recently appointed VP Sales EMEA of The Knot Worldwide Group, of which Hitched is part of in the UK.

“We want to continue with Hitched’s long history of celebrating wedding businesses and provide those giving an outstanding level of service in the wedding sector with recognition of a job well done, so that couples who are organising a wedding can choose their team of professionals confident that everything will go well and knowing that they are hiring great experts in the sector,” Melo continues.

“In the UK, couples hire an average of 10 suppliers for their wedding. At Hitched and the rest of the companies in The Knot Worldwide Group, as leading websites in the wedding sector, we want to be a fundamental source of information for couples and serve as a guide when it comes to deciding who they are going to entrust with all the details of their big day. We are talking about a unique moment in the life of a couple and therefore the stakes are high, so we think it is the fairest and most relevant thing to base these awards on their opinions. This year, moreover, we are aware that the sector needs reasons to celebrate and these awards represent hope at the beginning of a year in which we are going to experience an unprecedented boom in weddings,” says Melo.

The Wedding Awards honours the following 16 categories: Wedding Venues, Catering, Wedding Music & DJs, Wedding Photographers, Wedding Planners, Beauty, Hair & Makeup, Decoration Hire, Groom Attire, Wedding Stationery, Wedding Favours, Wedding Entertainment, Wedding Cakes, Bridal Shops & Jewellery, Wedding Cars & Travel and Honeymoons.
