Even with twelve years of experience under his belt, Rik, by his own admission, still hasn’t seen it all for the simple reason no two weddings are the same. This is the man we’d want at our wedding.

Sarah’s diary usually books up within 18-24 months in advance – yes, she’s in very high demand. One look at her unparalleled portfolio and it’s easy to see why (it’s a little bit WOW, to say the least!).

Where: South West & UK

We need to clarify, although we’ve described their style as documentary, they self-identify as somewhere between ‘documentary-style’ and somewhere between ‘we’re-just-here-to-make-you-look-f******-awesome photography’.

If that’s what you’re after (and who isn’t?), that’s what you’ll get!
