IT'S YOUR WEDDING

YOUR BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS CAPTURED…NATURALLY


Hi and, firstly, congratulations on your engagement!  You are now undertaking one of the most exciting, fun, challenging and probably costly events that you are likely to go through as a couple.  Your photographs will be remembered for many years after the event and can serve as a great excuse for you both to cuddle up and relive your day. As a Husband and Wife photography team we understand this and absolutely love being part of a couples wedding day. Your wedding is not just a day – it is a series of days, experiences and , most importantly, special moments.  We have been capturing special moments for newlyweds since 2004 and have seen many different styles, venues weather challenges and delightful smiling faces along the way. 

 

We photograph weddings from our base in Sussex using high resolution Nikon kit and are one of the only true ‘low light’ specialists in the UK.  This means that churches, barns, winter and dimly lit venues are our playground!   

 

For your perfect wedding photographer in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire or anywhere in the UK then why not get in touch and let’s chat.

 

Getting married abroad? We also cover destination weddings overseas for less than you might think!

NATURAL

Your photographs will be captured as they happen with little to no posing at all.  We want you to feel relaxed…that’s the best way to show you at your best!

We’re always looking for the shots that will push the boundaries.  Not the same old, same old but new, different and without equal

A LITTLE ABOUT US


That’s us mucking about on the beach in our home town! Rod married Bridal consultant Julie. It was when they were trying to find their own wedding photographer then that they both realised that there was something missing, that little something extra…the wedding X-Factor!!

Fun, individual, enthusiastic and passionately devoted to weddings.  Just a few of the comments that we get from clients.  

We truly enjoy what we do and treat each couples Big Day as if it were our own.  From the very first meeting right through to planning and delivery of the final albums. 

Lets get together over a nice cuppa and have a good old natter about your wedding plans.

FEATURED WEDDINGS


Our ‘portfolio’  

Rather than select just our favourite bits from a few weddings, we thought you might like to see the whole wedding!

So, we have shot hundreds of weddings over many years in locations grand and small and inside and outside and over that time we have gathered lots of lovely insights into the wonderful world of weddings!  Whether they are ‘traditional, ‘vintage’, ‘quirky’, ‘relaxed’ or just plain ‘mental’ we love them all.

Take a peek at some of our favourite weddings below

d and Julie were fantastic. What a lovely couple who went above and beyond their roles as photographers to support us on the day and take creative and requested pictures. The whole wedding reception said to me how nice and great Rod and Julie were. It was important to me to capture pictures of my grandparents and Rod got every single picture with my grandparents I could possibly want. Thank you so much and I could not think of a nicer couple to have captured our special day."

 I was looking for low-light specialists who didn't use flash, who could really capture the feel of our day, which was rustic, soft lighting, outdoor, in a yurt and very relaxed. It was also really important to me that the photographers that we had fitted in well and blended into the guests. Rod and Julie fulfilled our brief beautifully.

Rod and Julie of zest are without a doubt the best in the business and I really don't say that lightly ! I felt that they love what they do and that really shows in the results , myself and my family were blown away by the finished pics, I have been approached by blogs wedding advertising etc and I'm not surprised with the vision they they created! Cool funky romantic without being cheesy and I reckon that's pretty hard to achieve!

We like to make our pricing clear from the beginning-no ‘prices starting from £xx’ only to find that this gets you next to nothing!

 

To make things simple, we have created 4 packages below aimed at a range of budgets. All packages provide 2 photographers for the whole day, a pre-wedding shoot, an online gallery with a shop and an album option. Prices then vary according to the products that you would like to receive from your photography such as style of album, wall art etc..

 

Should you wish to upgrade from one package to another or ‘bolt on’ products then that’s fine too -just ask and we’ll see what we can do.

 

We only require a £150 deposit to secure your wedding date and even offer a simple installment plan.  Don’t leave it too late though as we are popular and book up to 2 years in advance!

 

Ask about our gift vouchers – ideal as a wedding gift to use as a contribution towards your photography or even a nice album!
