Surrey wedding photographer bride's joy and excitement

Hurrah! So you're getting married

Hi there, I'm Richard, a professional Surrey wedding photographer engaged in capturing excited, in-love couples and I am delighted you are here.

You’ve booked the date and you’ve chosen your dream venue and now it’s time for you to book your perfect wedding photographer.

Let's talk about your wedding and how I can help make it "The Best Day of your Life”

My photography style is natural, relaxed and unobtrusive so you won’t find me directing anyone on your wedding day. This reportage photography style means I’ll be there amongst your family and guests discreetly capturing all the emotion and action of the big, must-get unforgettable moments along with all those small, incidental and spontaneous ones that you won’t have known about. The result being a wonderfully natural story of your day full of love and fun.

What you can expect

At Surrey Lane Wedding Photography you will always receive a highly personal and professional service with excellent communication.

If you ever need advice then we are only a phone call or email away and we will respond quickly and never keep you waiting. On the Big Day itself, you will find me friendly, helpful and well presented, so you can relax in the knowledge that I will blend in with all your family and guests and be a truly valuable addition to your day. 

I will also give you a date when you and your guests can view the edited pictures so you are never kept waiting for ages, guessing when they will be ready. Along with Tina, also a highly skilled wedding photographer and now a full-time picture editor, we always deliver on time and often earlier. Turnaround times depend on our work levels but we usually present them within 2 weeks, though in the summer months this can extend to 4.

We are proud to provide a First Class wedding photography service and we have received enthusiastic and heart-felt 5 Star Reviews from hundreds of our happy and satisfied couples.

Natural flowing story telling of your wedding day

Your wedding day is such a special occasion and a lot of time and effort has gone into planning it the way you want it to be

And so there will be so many unforgettable moments that you will want to look back over, again and again and cherish forever.
The nerves, tension and excitement of the morning when you are getting ready...to that very special moment when you say your marriage vows to each other...and then to the wonderful elation and relief of actually becoming a married couple.
You will go through a rollercoaster of emotions!

Eye-catching photographs packed with emotion

During all these moments there will be little looks and gestures that say a thousand words

Such as when a father sees his daughter in her beautiful wedding dress for the first time...

I am always focussed (pun intended) on capturing it all and providing you with a wealth of stunning, heart-felt emotional moments and memories that will make you smile with happiness and that you will cherish forever.

As well as being an absolute pleasure for me it is also a big responsibility and one that I take very seriously.

Capturing all those BIG and little moments

As well as capturing all the big important moments that you would expect, there are all those little incidental moments that you never got to see or notice


Such as the lovely bride calmy concentrating on untangling her necklace in the bridal car on route to church...
"You really did capture the moment!"

Natural and romantic wedding photography

And then there is that moment during the wedding celebrations when I steal you away and take you far from the madding crowd…



When I take you off to somewhere tranquil and relaxing where you can enjoy some lovely moments together, away from the party atmosphere so that you can reflect on your journey so far and take in the exhilarating fact that you actually did it!

This is a perfect opportunity to get some beautiful, natural and romantic photographs of you before you return to the heady celebrations.

It's also a great time for you to have a little fun and do anything that takes your fancy.

Why I love weddings

I love weddings because they are such fabulous and happy celebratory occasions


As a passionate and dedicated wedding photographer in Surrey, I always feel elated when my couples say how much they enjoyed me being part of their special day and how they have loved reliving it through their wedding pictures.

So after over 17 years and 500+ weddings you would think I’ve seen it all, but actually every week I see something new.

Shooting from roofs, fire escapes and ladders and from fire engines, buses and golf buggies...I have photographed a zombie invasion, pirates dueling, groomsmen snowball fighting, Elvis crooning, singing waiters and policemen...
“When we looked through our pictures we lost count of the number of times we said "aww" or laughed, you caught so many fantastic moments”

Choosing a wedding photographer - 8 Questions to ask


So you've booked your date and wedding venue and possibly the next thing on your long To Do list is to book your photographer. Looking for the right one can be a pretty daunting affair, especially as there seems to be so many to choose from and we all seem to be so busy these days; so here are 8 questions you should ask:

  1. Do you know someone who's got married recently or have you been to a wedding where you liked what you saw? Always a good start before going to wedding fairs or searching online and looking through all the websites and wedding supplier directories
  2. You like their work, so can you afford them? For most couples, budget will be an important factor along with the photography style
  3. How experienced are they and is wedding photography their full-time job?
  4. Have they worked at your venue or somewhere similar (not an essential qualification but it can help)
  5. Can you chat to them or better still meet up with them in person or via video conferencing? Remember that they will be with you, your family and friends for the whole day so it's important that you all get along
  6. Can they provide you with examples of real weddings and albums?
  7. Do they have lots of great customer reviews?
  8. Are they flexible to your wedding plans and requirements?

So how much does wedding photography cost? 

 

  • This will be primarily based on your budget along with some other important factors such as photography style, the photographer's personality, experience, reviews and flexibility to your requirements
  • An important factor to always bear in mind when reviewing prices is the old adage that if a price is too good to be true then it usually is
  • A full-time professional photographer has to earn a living so their pricing will typically take into account their average bookings and availability throughout the year, their equipment and maintenance, their website and image security, editing software, insurance etc
  • We offer our services to meet a range of customer needs: so covering our Register Office clients who may only require our special Quarter-Day Register Office package, our Half-Day package for those who don't require a full day's coverage along with three options for our Full-Day coverage couples
  • We also have special offers throughout the year so it's always worth having a chat if you want a clearer pictures of your options
