Derwent Photography's Lake District wedding photography is observational and documentary throughout the day, with a splash of creative contemporary added for the couple shots. Essentially they are Lake District landscape images with wedding couples in them. Many clients love the Lake District and love images like this for their album and wall. Images are always shot on the wedding day, either around the venue or a short hop in my car to a suitable spot I know, so allow up to an hour for this in your timings.

"I am a visual storyteller. I would feel privileged to capture and retell the story of your day. I shoot with a finished album in mind, as I do believe this is the best way to keep, share and treasure your memories for a lifetime. Even if you are just having the digital files, in my head I am still shooting to put a story together in a book."

Weddings are one of the major, pivotal family milestones. They bring everyone together and reaffirm family bonds and lifelong friendships. My job as your wedding photographer is to capture these moments, the joy and the emotions throughout the day, unobtrusively, but beautifully.


We chose Steve due to his documentary style photography. This complemented our relaxed wedding day perfectly. We are really happy with our photos which include the capture of all the important moments and the overall atmosphere as the day went on. Steve was always friendly and professional, and managed to get us looking natural in some of the "staged" shots. Our photos take us back to the day and are truly unique.

I really can't recommend Steve enough, he photographed our wedding in September and from our first meeting made us feel so at ease. Steve was so calming on the day and got exactly what we wanted, a perfect mix of documenting the day and getting some great pictures of the little details, capturing guests enjoying themselves, and then some lovely ones of us and family. Our guests commented on how much he just blended in too. Thank you Steve for our amazing photographs, and perfect memories of our special day.

Steve was without doubt the right photographer for us as his documentary style photography is exactly what we wanted to go along with our relaxed, informal wedding day. He not only provides the photography but assists in finer details of the day, which really puts the brides mind at ease! He blended in which ensured all the photographs were natural and caught real emotions and reactions throughout the day. Having looked through all of our photos we are truly amazed at how we are able to relive the day through these. We have selected our favourite photographs for our album and cannot wait to see the finished piece. Thank you so much again you really did contribute massively to our special day.

Steve was fantastic. We knew we didn't want many staged photographs and preferred a more observational style so as soon as we met Steve and saw his work, we knew he would do a terrific job capturing our day. He put us at ease on the day itself and was very happy to work around how we wanted to spend our day. He gave us invaluable tips and hints throughout the day and captured the moments that we missed. The result is more a collection of memories than just photographs and we cannot wait to see the finished album. We cannot recommend him highly enough! Thanks Steve

Steve is a great photographer, he captured our wedding day perfectly. Both Rach and I were really happy with the relaxed way he managed the guests and the ensured all the set photos ran quickly and efficiently meaning we got time to relax with our guests. We love the pictures and how he has captured the scenery of the valley and the lake within them, giving us fantastic shots to look back on for a lifetime.
