How early should I book you to be photographer for my St Tewdrics House wedding?

Congratulations, you’re engaged and have chosen your date and venue. It’s time to secure your booking and to book your wedding photographer. We can be booked up to 2 years in advance, with the average time being a year before the big day. Don’t worry, if you are getting married sooner than that, please send us a message and we can check our diary. We take lots of last-minute wedding bookings – such as off-season or weekday weddings, as these generally have more availability. If you’ve booked a Saturday wedding in June, July or August, it’s important to book as soon as possible – which we’d love to be us! Another great incentive to book early is to guarantee your package price and potentially save you money. Even if your wedding is 2 years away, you will only pay the prices at the time of booking.

When it comes to ensuring your wedding day has a physical reminder of the emotions, love, laughter, romance and fun, a professional photographer is something you can’t afford to scrimp on.
