Natural Wedding Photography.

Wedding guests often ask me which side of the family I’m on; they assume I must be related, or a friend of the family because everyone is so relaxed having their photographs taken. I take it as a real complement and it’s exactly what I want on your big day, everyone relaxed and enjoying themselves paying me no attention for most of the day. I’ll work as unobtrusively as possible, capturing those completely wonderful, natural photographs.

With over ten years’ experience as a professional wedding photographer, I have a pretty good idea of where I need to be at any given moment, to stand the best chance of getting those beautiful, un-posed images, which tell the story of your day.

Often referred to as Reportage or Documentary Style Wedding Photography, it’s a very relaxed, natural style of photography which I love. Weddings bring out the best in people; you and your wedding guests flushed with genuine emotion – nothing inspires me more.

Classical Wedding Photography

As much as I love capturing those spontaneous moments of happiness as the day unfolds, I will always encourage you to allow some time during the drinks reception for some classical wedding photography.

Setting a little time aside to get those lasting images of just the two of you is so important. I’ll often suggest that you enjoy a few moments with your guests straight after the ceremony, to accept their congratulations and savour a glass of bubbly, before excusing yourselves for photographs.

I’ll work quickly so that you can get back to your guests as soon as possible and I’ll also make sure that we have some fun whilst getting those all-important Bride & Groom shots. I know that not everyone enjoys having their photograph taken but I’ll put you at ease and together we’ll create some lasting images you’ll want to treasure forever.

The drinks reception is also your only opportunity to get your family and group shots. Weddings bring families together and I’ll make sure that we have a laugh and a giggle while getting some flattering and joyful family and group shots done.

No Gimmicks!

Whilst I make a point of regularly attending wedding photography workshops and researching new techniques to stay abreast of what’s new; I am mature enough to be quietly confident about my own style which I would describe as honest, heartfelt, thoughtful wedding photography which tells your story, remains true to your individual personalities and conveys your happiness and joy.

I won’t have you traipsing miles across country fields in your wedding dress or clambering over stone walls; the current trend for brides and grooms standing to attention looking miserable, eludes me.

I put my heart and soul into my job and my job as I see it, is to ensure that you enjoy your wedding day and have some truly fabulous photographs to remember it by.

“On reflection, one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding day was to employ the services of Gary Skerratt Photography. From the moment we met Gary we knew he was the best man for the job. His genuine friendliness was evident from the outset and he has a wonderful skill of making the Bride & Groom feel like they are the most important couple he has ever met. We’ll treasure the memories of our special day forever. Gary’s calmness & composure overflowed and made us both feel so relaxed on what can be one of the most stressful day’s in one’s life ! We were amazed how he remembered everyone’s name - incredible! This made our guests feel so special and important. Even the venue owners said he was one of the most skilled and proficient photographers they had worked with ! Thanks for being a part of our amazing day Gary - it just wouldn’t have been the same without you !”
