Wedding Photography

Stories engage you, embrace you, make you feel joyous and tearful. They are not told in one line but instead through a series of well written chapters. Likewise, your wedding album is a classic book, capturing many details and unique moments that come together to tell your unique wedding day through pictures.

Like great writers, great photographers love what they do and I am passionate about my role. My focus is always to take bright and colourful photos filled with natural emotions of happiness and fun, while letting you and your guests enjoy the day as much as possible.

2018 was my 10th year of photographing weddings and I am always honoured when a couple choose me to photograph their day. I enjoy helping each one to have the best day possible, both in the planning stages where I can advise based on my experiences, and on the day through helping to keep it run smoothly, while always wishing to go above and beyond.

I am proud to be a qualified Licentiate Member of the Society of Wedding Photographers and to have reached the Regional Finals of the Wedding Industry Awards in the last four years! Equally, it is heart warming to have received so many kind words from now married couples and a selection of these can be found on the ‘Reviews’ section of my Facebook page.

I also enjoy sharing my latest work through my Instagram (@craigpaynephoto) and Facebook pages so please do check these out. If you like what you see then please do get in touch once you’ve read the Information about what I can offer you below and I look forward to hearing from you,


My Portfolios & Videos

Here are a selection of galleries for you to look through! To begin with there is my Portfolio showing my best work from the last eleven years and then three galleries highlighting my work over the last three years.

Beneath these are four Real Weddings so you can see how I have documented the couples day from start to finish!


I enjoy working at many venues throughout the South East. Here are some of the venues I regularly visit:

About Me

The Collection

I have created a Collection for you that brings together the modern day flexibility of digital images with the tradition of physical outcomes, so you can cherish your photos in both print and on screen! For, as I truly believe, ‘pictures should be printed and admired, not just seen on phones!’

The Collection includes all of the following,

A Meeting prior to your wedding at your venue(s) so we can chat about your plans in detail and have a good look around. I will also give you a copy of my Photography List so you can request any key photos that you would like me to take.

High Resolution Digital Images of each of your photos, supplied on a USB within a personalised luxury box

A Sneak Peek Online Gallery of 120 edited photos within a few days of your wedding, so you can relive the day while on honeymoon

40 Thank you Cards featuring a photo of your choice on the front, with the option of purchasing additional cards

An Online Gallery & Printing Service, so your guests can view your photos and order their own professionally printed copies from me

A Print Collection of one mounted 16 by 12 inch print and three mounted 10 by 8 inch prints, of photos of your choice.

The Price

My Collection, including everything listed above, is £1700.

I am proud to find myself fully booked most years and have a small number of spaces left for weddings in 2020, while I am accepting enquiries for 2021 weddings!

The Optional Extras

 In addition I can offer you a bespoke & personalised wedding album and parent albums, a second photographer (to document the groom getting ready, a second angle during the ceremony and more), a slideshow to music of your best photographs, canvas wraps, mounted prints and more.
