Wedding Photography Packages

I’m a wedding photographer with a choice of wedding photography packages to suit all budgets. Based in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, I’m perfectly located centrally in the North East of England.
From the bridal preparations to your first dance, many months or even years of preparing for your wedding day comes down to just one special day. A wedding day can be busy, and sometimes moments of your day pass by too quickly. You need a wedding photographer to capture one of the most amazing days of your lives to keep those memories fresh in your mind forever.

Here at Chris Hughes Photography, we know that some couples may have a large wedding at a large venue, and others a smaller private wedding at a Registry Office. Your wedding is special to you, and we can offer a package suitable for all locations and budgets.

All of my wedding photography packages include a pre-wedding consultation (dependant on distance) so that we can discuss your specific requirements. I can show you various examples of my work so that you can decide which style you like. I pride myself on first class customer service from day one to make sure your photography requirements go without a hitch and its one less thing for you to worry about. You can have a look at some examples of my wedding photography on my portfolio page.

During the editing stage, all images are carefully handpicked and expertly edited. All wedding photography packages come with a DVD or USB stick in a presentation box. Your images are supplied as both high-resolution and low-resolution for print and social media respectively. Your images also come with a print release form to allow you to share and print the photographs for your own personal use, after all, they are your photos to keep forever.

Images are usually ready 2 – 4 weeks after the wedding, but keep an eye out on my blog and Facebook page for a sneak peek of how they are coming along!
