Peartree Pictures are able to provide an almost unique service within the wedding industry. With a documentary and contemporary approach they aim to capture all the fun, emotion and narrative of the day in a way that is both unobtrusive and relaxed.
They realise that all weddings are different and strongly believe that wedding photography and videography should be discreet, stylish and beautiful. Ian Southworth has been involved in photography for over 20 years. His love of natural, documentary based imagery led him towards becoming one of the leading reportage wedding photographers in the UK.

Our wedding was very small and compact. Everything was over by 5pm, but when we are looking at the pictures now it feels like it was a very long and a very happy day. Ian and his shooting partner were with us from early morning and until the end of the day. I didn't get the idea of having two photographers working at the same time, but Ian convinced me there are benefits to this. And I have to say this was one of the best advices I got about the wedding. Definitely recommend Peartree Pitcures to anyone who appreciates reportage photography and wants a vivid and natural capture of their day.

Peartree Pictures gave us the most beautiful collection of photos we could have hoped for. They pitched the wedding day perfectly never dragging us away from our guests for long and yet managed to capture so many lovely images. Ian and Wayne are so easy going and complerely dedicated to giving their customers the best pictures they can (and they delivered in abundance). You basically get great guys turn up to your wedding, blend in seamlessley, have a good laugh with you and somehow along the way work their magic and produce amazing pictures. I cannot recommend them highly enough - thanks again guys!

Oh my god these guys work hard! Ian was lying on the floor, standing on walls and hustling about to get the best shot, but he was calm, blended in, helped give the day a happy tone and was a pleasure to have around. For our wedding in September 2009 we went with Ian (and his brilliant co-photographer Wayne) because we liked him and they had a great philosophy and general approach. It was great knowing they were thinking about how the album layout would be as they were shooting images to share a double page in the album (not just taking individual photos as some other photographer's albums would suggest!). And what an album! Seeing the album made us remember just how fantastic the day was. Great contemporary design and finish and worth every penny. I could go on and on, but all in all a highly recommendable service and I always mention Peartree Pictures to people I know who are getting married. Another big thankyou! Ross & Fem

We originally found Peartree Pictures on the Internet and were wowed by Ian's portfolio. His pictures had a very unique edge and he seemed to capture the various and diverse weddings in a very artistic way, which we found very appealing.
Our wedding was the first Jewish wedding that Ian had done - it was a crazy whirl of ongoing ritual and dancing - which he managed to capture in the story that he told in our final wedding album.
We were very happy with the quality and end result and would definitely recommend Peartree Pictures for your special day. Danya

After seeing the amazing images that Peartree Pictures took at a friends wedding I knew that I had to book them for mine. The results were simply outstanding. We never felt that the photography took over the day and were extremely relaxed with them around. I cannot recommend them highly enough and the fact that they are ranked amongst the the very best wedding photojournalists in the UK is not in the least surprising.
