Your beautiful moments captured…naturally

Hi and, firstly, congratulations on your engagement!  We love a wedding and we love being one of the longest established Sussex Wedding Photographers! 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 wedding 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 natural wedding photographers 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!

Your wedding  photography will be captured as moments 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!

Finding the right light, the best backdrop and the perfect angle – added to the raw emotion of the moment – we create stunning images to treasure.

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


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 someone for their own wedding photography 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.

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 wedding photography below

Rod 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!

"Rod and Julie were so amazing from the get go, we instantly felt that their all goes into their job and it was clear how much they love it from the very first meeting! The whole experience with Zest was perfect, from our engagement shoot all the way through! We have just spent a wonderful weekend flicking through all of the beautiful photos, attempting to pick our favourites (impossible) for our album and we are so excited to see the final result! I've still got a rock the frock shoot to do with Zest and I couldn't be more excited - can't recommend these guys highly enough, everything was flawless! "

"Rod and Julie are the best! After our original wedding venue cancelled on us less than 48hours before getting married Rod and Julie was very supportive and helped us a lot. The photos they took on our new date are amazing! And they even came out in the pouring rain to get some really cool outside shots! I honestly can't recommend them enough to anyone! "
