Bill photographed our wedding last week. He was totally amazing and so professional. Bill has a warm personality with a great sense of humour which made us feel so relaxed for our photos and we enjoyed having him with us for our very special day. The photos are amazing and we couldn’t be happier.

Photo Journalism

Candid Affordable Wedding Photographer

From £299 – affordable wedding photographer for your special day

Photo journalism at a wedding is what I truly love and without doubt is the best form of wedding photography. I like to think that couples and their guests don’t even know they are being photographed. This enables you to capture those all important natural photos as you follow them around by allowing them to do what they want to do without direction or control.

Weddings are about smiles and happiness and enjoying the moment. This approach and style also ensures they get the most from their day. You often find then that their smiles and reactions are more genuine when they don’t even know that you are capturing those eternal moments.


Quite often when they review their photos they tell me that they didn’t even know that I had captured that moment.


Yes, in every wedding there has to be an element of posing to ensure the key photos with family and important guests are included but they are minimal and everyone is by this time so relaxed with my style and approach they are only too happy to have them taken.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend William for any event, we found him to be extremely professional, hardworking, reliable with a great sense of humor, which is extremely important if you want your guests to be captured looking happy and relaxed. As an older bride, I was extremely anxious about having my pictures taken as am not a fan and usually avoid having my picture taken at all costs. Within seconds William had me in stitches and my anxiety just melted away. Every single guest commented, about the lengths he went to for a perfect shot. We have some amazing photos and we have to admit, he captured every single aspect of our wedding, we are completely blown away.

View packages

There is a wedding package available for every budget, from individual aspects of the day through to our full signature platinum package.

Formal photos at weddings or any special event are important.  However, it’s the candid, photo journalistic photos that usually provide the special WOW factor.

How it works

What to expect when you choose Bean Photographed

My style is relaxed, approachable, flexible and definitely photo journalistic to ensure the real happy humorous wedding moments are captured.

Several conversations before the big day, to plan your photos and discuss the kind of photos you hope to see.

Text communication or a chat before the big day to ensure we meet at the right time and place, and to allow for any last minute changes in schedule.

I will take the lead with photography on the day, moving around the wedding without need for direction to get all the shots we discussed and planned.

I ensure I maintain constant communication throughout your day to ensure all the key moments and most important guests and family are not missed.

Bill came out to meet us a week before and gave us lots of invaluable advice on what to expect on the day, and what we could do to get the best pictures. He turned up early on the morning of the wedding and was with all the girls throughout getting ready, then he went to the venue and met us there. We received our pictures after two weeks and we could not be happier with them, I would recommend Bill to anyone, he is  a lovely guy and did an amazing job!

Getting the photos you want

Planning Your Wedding Photography

When I talk to my couples prior to their wedding day I always say that time travel is not possible but that a photo locks in a time, location and memory. When viewed ten, twenty, thirty years later, it can immediately take you back.


Therefore I believe it’s important to know that you are taking a photo not only for the moment but the future. I therefore help my couples to think of every photo as a potential classic that can stand the test of time.


To achieve this I feel constant communication both prior and during plays a huge part in building trust. This enables the couples I photograph to feel more comfortable and relaxed with my presence as I float around their wedding day capturing those important soft candid moments.

If you’d like a special wedding shoot at a unique location, we can arrange this after your big day.

Mr Bean was amazing. He remained in contact with me before our wedding asking us if we had any special requirements or requests, on the wedding day itself he was there early to meet my husband and best man and take photographs of him and his best man. When I arrived he made me feel very special, he looked after my bridesmaids and family. I would highly recommend Mr Bean, his work is outstanding. Mr Bean is also very reasonably priced and very professional.

Leaving room for magic

Beautiful wedding photography

I feel it’s also important to remember that every wedding couple is different and will always have their idea of how they wish you to photograph their day.  After meeting their wishes and key expectations I feel it’s also important to try and provide surprises and give them something a little special and perhaps unexpected.


This can come from using the stand out features of the venue or stand out photos such as the champagne shot, smoke, hairspray shot, umbrella shoot, sparklers, fireworks, new moon rising, bubbles, hidden portraits to name just a few.


Nobody wants to know everything that is going to be in their gallery.  No matter what your age or experience everyone likes to be pleasantly surprised and have photos of their big day that they will want to look at again and again.


So if you want a photographer that is relaxed, experienced at anticipating those key moments and can blend in so well that they can often be mistaken for one of the guests then please do not hesitate to contact me.


Style and quality without compromise and a price that is within your budget.

Bill is friendly and chatty with guests which helps when someone is so closely part of your big day, they’re almost like another guest so it helps that Bill is funny and personable. Would recommend! 5 stars! Thank you Bill!

Whatever your wedding Photographic needs are I am ready to deliver.  You have absolutely nothing to lose by asking.  You only intend to marry once and bridal couples biggest regrets is not having professional photographs of their wedding.  Please don’t think a well intentioned friend of family member using a bridge camera or IPhone can achieve the same quality and professionalism as a skilled wedding photographer with years of experience shooting in all weathers and lighting conditions at all times of the year.  Camera phones only provide small compressed images which provide little editing opportunity and despite their technological advances they can never compete with a full frame camera.


Have no regrets and don’t lose a friend who fails to deliver the quality you deserve and expect.
