Worcestershire Wedding Photographer

Living in the little village on the Worcestershire border I have the pleasure of being a Worcestershire Wedding Photographer at many of the wonderful venues we have in Evesham, Bromsgrove, Malvern and Redditch, and have formed close working relationships with venues like Redhouse Barn, Wootton Park & Curradine Barns. to name just a few, not mention those venues in the Cheltenham, Cotswolds Gloucestershire and South West.

These weddings have not only been enjoyed by local couples, but I have many clients who travel over here from London and all over the country for the dream country wedding, and the Worcestershire is just perfect which makes my job as a Worcestershire wedding Photographer all the better.

What is your approach to Worcestershire wedding photography?

Every wedding is unique, and that is reflected in the images I deliver to you. I tell your wedding day story creatively and naturally, no standing around for hours having cheesy photos, I blend in like a guest with a camera capturing you and your guests at their most natural. I love to celebrate the joy and light of your day which hopefully shines through the pages of my website.

Just as every wedding is unique, every couple is unique as well. Some happy to play the model, others deeply shy and inexperienced in front of the camera. I work within your comfort zone, never dictating awkward or forced poses, but preferring for you to have a casual stroll together whilst I shoot from a distance, or place you within a beautiful scene simply existing together. Having worked at the vast majority of Worcestershire wedding venues I also know how they like to work, which makes the process even smoother.

When we first met Lee at a Wedding show in Stratford, we knew he was the wedding photographer for us! Yes, he had his wares on show so we could see how super talented he was, and yes he did the the candid, casual, non conformist pictures we wanted, but above all he was a really nice guy. This was really important to us as our photographer would be spending all day with us, and our friends and family – we had to like him.

The photos that Lee took for us were absolutely stunning, all (nearly) 1000 of them. They were just the shots we wanted, our friends and family celebrating with us and enjoying the day. These beautiful pictures will remind us of our best day, forever.

I think we were a little worried about the day itself, thinking we would have a camera in our faces 24/7. It wasn’t like that at all, and we soon realised that at our pre-wedding shoot. Lee just lets you get on with what you are doing, never getting in the way, but at the same time taking the most beautiful pictures.

The final thing we would say about Lee is that it’s just like having your friend there with you. He was such a lovely guy, a calming influence and with a great sense of humour. We certainly had a good laugh when we were getting ready in the morning, from being my spy so I knew it was safe to check out the venue (didn’t want to bump into my soon to be husband), to checking the flowers were okay and occupying a ‘visitor’, who meant well, but who I needed some space. from.! Not to forget the crazy 10 minutes in the corn field hunting down my beer, which turned up some of the most stunning and fun shots of all, and being an ear to listen when I was moaning about the band!!

Thank you Lee, you are the best photographer ever and we are so very glad we picked you.

What local knowledge do you have?

I live in Teddington on the Worcestershire border and spend a lot of time around this beautiful county with my famliy and walking the dog. This means that not only do I know Worcestershire wedding photography venues well, but I know loads of other little spots to sneak away to if needed for either a few portraits on the day itself, or an engagement shoot in the build up. As you may have picked up from my website, I have a real passion for what I do, so anything I can do to make it even more personal and tailored for you, I will.

I live with my wife Kim, our sons Milo & Monty, plus a variety of dogs, cats and chickens! I don't just work as a Worcestershire wedding photographer, but I live it too, with a huge portfolio of Worcestershire scenery photography, often with a dog or two in the foreground!

What locations do you cover?

Most of my weddings are in Cheltenham, the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and the South West, but I travel nationwide for several weddings each year, and will even go overseas.

Why Choose Lee Hawley Photography

This is not formal wedding photography – I tell your wedding story naturally and creatively. No awkward poses, no saying cheese & no taking you away from your guests for hours. My goal is for you to feel like you have a friend as your photographer. By doing that I capture you at your most you, and create genuinely personal images.

I would love you to watch this short video on how I go about my passion.

Worcestershire Wedding Photography - Redhouse Barn

Redhouse Barn in Bromsgrove Worcestershire is a pretty special made to measure wedding venue. When it was converted it was a no half measure approach, and with no lack of thought. As an experienced Worcestershire wedding photographer I can see the many subtle details in its design that don’t happen by accident! Things like the subtle colour changeable lighting throughout the entire building, and the way the layout is made to create a natural flow to the days proceedings and avoid the awkward “room turn around” period were people end up in a corridor whilst it is done as so often happens at other venues!

Add to that a passionate family run team over seeing things, and you get a genuinely personal and special experience, which is why working as a Redhouse barn wedding photographer is so enjoyable and rewarding.

Laura & David obviously agree, as it is where they chose for their wedding, and me as their Redhouse Barn wedding photographer.

I always say the venue is only half the factor in my enjoyment for a wedding day, and that the couple is the other, and Laura and David were so much fun to spend the day with.

 

Who is the Worcestershire Wedding Photographer behind Lee Hawley Photography?

Lee Hawley Photography is owned and run by little old me. Everything you see on my website, every photo, web page, brochure, leaflet, email or social media post is made by me. This is way more than a wedding photography business. It is an all consuming passion and I want everything you experience with Lee Hawley Photography to be the result of my approach, work ethic and style. Warts and all! I would rather things be a bit quirky but be the real me. I know for every couple that is puts off, another will feel a connection. Resulting in me being the right wedding photographer for the right couple.

I am never not at "work". Email me, and you will get a reply ASAP, often at all hours. In a previous life I worked for well over a decade in construction and building services. Including 3 years on the tools as an electrician. I know what hard work is and what long hours are. I maintain that work ethic and then some as a Worcestershire wedding photographer in my own business Lee Hawley Photography. Often up late into the evening editing your images to stick to the short turn around times I promise, or meeting couples any evening of the week, sometimes in different counties.

The truth is, this isn't really work. I feel immensely privileged to do something I love so much. So it is the least I can do, to give it my all.

You can see my obsession on my Instagram updated daily here.

Homelife

I live in a little village on the Worcestershire border with my wife Kim, our 4 year old son Milo, new born Monty, Hugo the Bearded Collie, cat Dexter and 3 chickens. We also have 3 ponies, Paddy, Fern and Whisper. Oh, and my wife is a veterinary nurse, and serial animal hoarder. Can you tell?

Kim’s veterinary work and my working from home results in me being a very hands on dad. Spending a lot of my time with Milo, finding fun things to do, roping him into wedding photography research trips. Sat on my lap watching Thomas and Friends whilst I catch up on admin. Serving hundreds of meals, plus bath and bedtimes! I love it.
