Storytelling wedding day photography...





How do you want to remember your wedding day?

Your wedding day is so much more than a procession of staged images. My approach is to capture the real story of your wedding day, and I do this through a series of natural spontaneous moments, mixed along with traditional formal imagery. I really want your pictures to look real, and not overly contrived. Your wedding day is about you... not me!

"Hi Neal, Just wanted to thank you for taking all our beautiful photos at our wedding, we had such an amazing day and you managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly. So many of our guests commented on what a lovely man you are. Your warm, friendly nature really made us all feel so much at ease and comfortable in front of the camera, which shows in the stunning photos, we all looked so natural and relaxed. You are a real credit to your profession and we will most certainly be recommending you to everyone, just can't thank you enough.
Kaye and Alan, Gosfield Hall."


I offer a very straightforward choice of wedding packages (see further down the page below), and am flexible in terms of meeting your own specification or budget. All you need to do is ask!

Please email me for the very latest package information available. Please don't forget to include the date of your wedding so that I can check availability.

What you need to Know: your questions answered...

Are you accredited to any professional organisation?
Yes, I am an accredited member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the (UK) Guild of Photographers.

Are you fully insured?
Yes, I have Public Liability insurance to the value of £2 million and Professional Indemnity cover to the value of £75,000.

How long have you been a wedding photographer?
I have now been covering weddings for twelve years.

How many photographs will you take at our wedding?
It depends upon several factors but from a typical full day you will be presented between 450-600 edited images.

Do you have back-up equipment in the event of camera breakdown etc?
Absolutely, you can't be a professional photographer without a spare of everything!

What happens if you are ill on the day of our wedding?
One of the benefits of being part of a professional organisation is that I am involved with a local group of photographers who act as a back-up contingency for each other in the event that illness etc. prevents one of us from attending.

If it rains on our wedding day how will you be able to get good photographs?
Whatever the weather I will utilise my years of experience and training to create some memorable images for you. I also carry with me two plain ivory golf-style umbrellas that can be put to good use!

How long will you remain at our wedding?
That’s dependant upon the coverage you have chosen but my time is not rigidly fixed. I’ll stay for as long as it’s needed to get the pictures that will fulfil your expectations.

Do you work on your own or with an additional photographer?
Usually on my own, but an assistant can be arranged if you really want the extra cover.

How will we get to see our proof images? How long will they take?
My current preferred method is to create for you your own online wedding portfolio on my website, which is password protected for privacy. Other options are available if preferred (proof books etc). At the busiest time of year your proof images are usually ready within 4-5 weeks of your wedding, and much sooner than that at quieter times.

Are your wedding packages “set in stone” or are they flexible? Can we meet with you to discuss our day?
I am completely flexible with my service options and would love to discuss your day with you. Please get in touch so that I can fully understand what you need.

How do we book you!?
Please send me an email to check my availability. If I am free I will provisionally reserve your date for you and send you a booking form. Upon receipt of the booking form and retainer deposit (£200) I will confirm your booking and save the date just for you!

Wedding Products...

With your wedding package you have numerous products that are now available to choose from, all of which are of the highest quality and attention to detail. From images supplied on disc in luxurious leatherette cases through to sumptuous albums, wall-art and more, the products suppled by me are made to a standard that can't be attained by High Street suppliers. All of the products offered can be purchased after your wedding, and you will shortly be able to suggest to family and friends that they can purchase neal laver photography gift vouchers that can be used towards any of the products or services I offer.

"Hi Neal, thank you so much for the beautiful photo album - it's loved by everyone. Fantastic attention to detail with the design and presentation - very much appreciated. Thank you for capturing our special day."
