Documentary Wedding Photography in Surrey

We are Carol & Paul, award winning documentary wedding photographers. We photograph weddings in a natural reportage style, capturing real moments, emotional moments, without posing people. Paul was previously a London fashion photographer, for over 15 years and we’ve been capturing wedding memories, as a Surrey wedding photographer for over 10 years together.

We live in the tiny village of Headley, about 9 miles south of Farnham and about 18 miles south of Guildford. So are frequent visitors to all the local Surrey venues, including, Farnham Castle, Gate Street Barn, Millbridge Court and not forgetting the beautiful Great Fosters. The whole of the county is in easy reach to us. It was made even easier when they built the Hindhead tunnel. That area, by the way, around the Devil’s Punchbowl, has some spectacular scenery. We both love the country lanes and small villages in the area, which always seem to look like they’ve stepped out of an episode of Miss Marple. Cricket on the village green, next to a local village pub is still a regular feature in the county, during the summer months.

If you are getting married in Surrey and looking for your perfect wedding photographer, why not get in touch to chat about your wedding day plans. Our photography is totally unobtrusive, documentary photography. 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. After moving to the area 15 years ago, we’ve never regretted our decision to move out of London.
