"Short Coverage" Weddings

I often get asked about "short coverage" weddings rather than Full Day coverage. Although I don't advertise them on my website, in certain circumstances I can accomodate a shorter coverage booking.

If you scroll down beyond the waffle here, you'll see links to several 3 hour coverage weddings - these will give you an idea of whats acheivable in a three hour timeframe - if you would like to see a full day's coverage to compare and see what's missing if you only have 3 hours coverage, send me a message using the link below and let me know what date your wedding will be - I will find you a link to a full day gallery from a time of year as close to your wedding date as possible to give you a better idea of whats achievable at the time of year you're getting married.

Pricing and Content :

"Short" wedding coverage is priced at £150 per hour or part thereof, with a minimum of 3 hours booked. For weddings which involve a round trip of more than an hour in total from my studio (GL2 8DN)  there may be an additional travel time cost - please contact me for details.

The most popular "Short Coverage" package is the Three Hour package. This costs £450 and includes: 

  • Photography for 3 hours (start time to be arranged but I've found from experience this needs to start no later than 30 minutes before your ceremony time)
  • All your wedding proofs on a USB with full permission of useage
  • A password protected online gallery for your family and friends to view

It's worth mentioning at this point that a lot of customers who approach me for the three hour package have switched instead to my Full Day package that includes a Photobooth - this package comprises:

  • Photography from Bridal Preparations until First Dance (with no "on the clock" time restrictions - if your times during the day overrun, that's absolutely fine)
  • All wedding proofs as above but on an upgraded, boxed USB
  • A password protected online gallery for your family and friends to view
  • Our multimedia photo booth for 3 hours operation
  • Unlimited trips to the booth for you and your guests with a print out every time
  • A guest book
  • A second photo printed every time which is placed in the guest book for your guests to sign
  • Video Messaging 
  • Green Screens

Priced separately the two would be £1400 but if you book the "Joint Package" it is reduced to £1195 (a saving of £200 overall). This price ALSO includes ALL travel costs.

In all cases if you wish to make a booking, please complete the online booking form by clicking HERE. Once this has been received, assuming your date is available, I will process your booking and email you an e-contract, and an invoice for your deposit (which will be £100 for short coverage, and £200 for the Joint Package). In all cases the balance is then due one month before your wedding date. For 3 hour bookings, choose the Option "Photos Only To Speeches" from the drop down menu, and then in Additional Comments put "By The Hour - number of hours = 3 (or however many you would like !)"

Any other questions - just drop me an email by clicking HERE - I'll be happy to help if I can.

Each of these weddings below had just three hours coverage.
You will notice what's missing in most cases for short coverage weddings is bride prep and detail shots (as these usually start 2 hours before the ceremony) and photos of the speeches.
In the galleries below, after a discussion with Charlotte & Ryan, Becca & Neil & Tracey & Dean the decision was made for these couples to do their speeches BEFORE the meal was served so that it was still within the three hour limit and I was able to capture this for them.
