Best Wedding Photographers in the UK with the deepest pockets
Barely a week goes by without a new Top 100 UK Wedding Photographers list being published somewhere online, swiftly followed by a flurry of Facebook posts by eager snappers keen to point out to their armies of obsequious followers that ‘Hey - I’m proud to be included on this amazing list of awesome wedding photographers’. Well done dude! Awesome - you so deserve that!
All these lists of the Best Wedding Photographers Ever have one thing in common - actually two things in common. The first thing is that I’m never included. This is surely an oversight on the part of the impartial, objective list compilers - I mean have they seen my work! Are they aware of my reputation and the groaning shelf of wedding industry awards! Obviously not or surely I would have made at least one of the lists by now. I’m certainly the best photographer in my neighbourhood and I should make the list. Shouldn’t I?

Bride and Groom: Emma and Ollie
Wedding venue: Gildings Barn has the traditional rustic style of an old-fashioned barn - cosy and welcoming in the winter with plenty of room outdoors for summer weddings. Despite its olde-worlde feel, the main barn dates from the 1990s and was made from timber from trees that fell in the "Great Storm" of 1987. Venue Website
Photographer: Chris Mann has been photographing weddings through the UK and overseas for the last 15 years, so has plenty of experience, and a relaxed natural style that fitted well with this couple's approach.

Photo Title: Tuscan Bride
Photo details: The portrait is of stunning bride Fernanda shot at Villa Magiacane, Florence. The sun was disappearing fast when i suggested to Fernanda we shoot some pictures in the beautiful gardens. I shot through some glass ornaments hanging from a tree to give the image depth and the backlit sun offered some interesting bokeh.
About the photographer: I specialise in beautiful, stylish and creative contemporary documentary wedding photography. By documenting what unfolds I captures the essence of the wedding - the laughter, the tears, the joy and all of the emotions of the day. London based, I have photographed weddings from Cornwall to the Orkney Islands, Florence and Marrakech.

Photo Title: Stolen....
Photo details: The Wedding of Rachel and Bret. The photo was taken at the end of October at about 8pm so pretty much pitch dark.
The venue Elsham Hall near Scunthorpe is a beautiful place with loads of quiet wooded areas.
The couple are lit with a speed light behind them and a main flash in front with a long exposure with the camera mounted on tripod. The couple had to stay still for a few seconds during the shot, not that they minded with a bit of snogging..
About the photographer: I've been a professional photographer for some 20 years, after leaving college I travelled on cruise ships as a photographer and now having settled down in the UK I shoot weddings and portraits full time. I love weddings, love the connection I make with couples and capturing those intimate moments that only as photographer we see.
