Special Prices for Affordable Chesterfield and Derbyshire Wedding Photography Packages

On this page, you can see details of some wedding album packages which I am currently offering at extremely affordable prices. They are mainly designed for smaller weddings, where large numbers of photographs are not required, but all offer excellent value for money.

All the packages include:

  • photographs of the bride getting ready
  • the ceremony itself
  • the reception up to to the start of the wedding breakfast

Because of the very limited quantities I have available, these special wedding photography packages are offered on a first come, first served basis only. For details of my other wedding photography services for Chesterfield and Derbyshire, please see here.

The Girona album with custom designed pages



Girona album with up to 100 images on custom designed pages plus CD – £800.00

The beautiful Girona album is also available with individually designed pages, rather than traditional overlays (see here for examples of custom designed pages). This allows a larger area of the pages to be used (9.5 x 9.5 in), so that more images can be included in the album. This package also includes all the images in the album on CD - a fantastic price for such a high quality album package.

Vulcans at Newark Air Museum

October 2015 sees the end of a chapter in aviation history with the last flights by a Vulcan bomber. As part of a “farewell to flight” nationwide tour, Vulcan XH558 flew over Newark Air Museum, Nottinghamshire, for the last time. The museum has their own Vulcan B2 (XM594) – one of only 18 left in the world –  and in beautiful sunshine XH558 flew right over it on her second pass to the delight of the onlookers. Above is a composite image made from 7 exposures of that sadly never-to-be-repeated experience. And here is a slideshow of images of both aircraft (including the whole sequence of both Vulcans together):

One of the things that I love about the Peak District is that there are always new photography opportunities. Whether that involves finding new photo locations or revisiting familiar ones, there is never any shortage of subject matter. 2014 was no exception in that respect, and here are just a few personal favourites. To see the images at larger size, just click on the slideshow player at the bottom of the page. View full post »

Wedding Ceremonies in Chesterfield and Derbyshire

We are very lucky in Derbyshire to have so many lovely wedding venues – and a few of them can be seen in this gallery. There are old churches full of character dating back to Norman times (such as St Peter and St Paul at Old Brampton, Chesterfield) as well as the larger, more imposing ones from Victorian times. All Saints Church, Matlock is one of these, and is a popular wedding venue. One feature it shares with the slightly older St Thomas’ Church at Brampton, Chesterfield, is a balcony – perfect for wedding photographers! The photos from up there are always some of the favourites with wedding clients. View full post »
