We are Carol & Paul Tansley a husband and wife team of award winning documentary wedding photographers.

Our background: Paul was previously a London fashion photographer, for over 15 years and Carol is an Art Director and used to work on fashion and wedding magazines. We’ve been capturing couples wedding memories, for over 11 years. Based in the tiny village of Headley on the Surrey/Hampshire border. We’re 9 miles south of Farnham and 18 miles south of Guildford. We often shoot at all the local Surrey wedding venues including, Farnham Castle, Gate Street Barn, Millbridge Court and not forgetting the beautiful Great Fosters.

Our wedding photography is totally unobtrusive, documentary style. Apart from posing for a few family formals or some couple portraits, you’ll barely know we are there. If you wonder why our images look so natural, that’s the reason. Our natural wedding photos capture candid moments, without our couple even realising we’re taking pictures. Moments that you will treasure forever. Having silent cameras and rarely ever using flash means your family and your guests won’t even realise we’re taking pictures. Which allows us to be totally unobtrusive on your big day. 

Surrey is such a beautiful county, it has the most woodland of any county in England, our own house is surrounded by trees. From the Devil’s Punchbowl and Frensham Common, both not far from us, to the famous Boxhill near Dorking, there’s so much stunning countryside to see. There are 80 Wildlife Trust reserves in the county, amazing.
