Neil Palmer – Berkshire Wedding Photographer
I’ve been a full time wedding photographer for well over 25 years and have photographed well over one thousand weddings during this time.
I’m based in Reading, Berkshire so am ideally placed to photograph weddings all over the UK including Scotland, Wales and the West Country. I also photograph weddings overseas and in recent years have travelled to The Netherlands, Portugal and even as far as Australia.
I would describe my style as documentary. This means I do not pose, direct or set up any shots. Instead I just observe in the background and photograph the day as it unfolds. I do, of course, take a handful of family group shots, usually straight after the ceremony, which should take no longer than 15-20 minutes. Later on the day I’ll take some informal portraits of just the bride and groom alone ideally as the sun is lower in the sky.
I have photographed weddings of all faiths – Christian, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh and Humanist and from many nationalities. And small weddings with just a handful of guests right up to very large ones with hundreds of guests lasting several days. I have also shot same sex weddings.
