This course is ideal for those taking the first steps to embark on a career as a professional wedding photographer or for those who have been asked to take some photographs at a wedding. The course will teach you how to cope with the demands of the day and show you how to produce quality & stylish images.
To give students the confidence that they can cope well with the demands of a busy day’s wedding photography and produce the style of quality and attractive images that the client has requested.
All our courses are run in our own purpose built training studio, after the photo-shoot you will return to ‘The Old Clubhouse’ for a debrief. We limit the course to a maximum of 6 students to enable the tutor to help everyone individually.
To get the most out of the Wedding Photography Course, it is recommended that students are able to control depth of field, capture motion and have an understanding of the ISO setting. These skills are taught on our Beginners Digital Photography Course.
This course is a mixture of classroom-based illustrated presentations and hands on practice with a model bride and groom. You will have the opportunity to go out and about in Lacock with the models and tutor before returning to “The Old Clubhouse” to review the techniques for enhancing your images.

♥♥♥♥♥ T.C. – 11 Nov 14 The models used were excellent, they both posed very well, the bride looked the part in her wedding dress.
♥♥♥♥♥ J.J. – 10 Nov 14 The venue was brilliant and I had a great day. Lunch was lovely. I learnt a lot about the pros and cons of being a wedding photographer, and even if I don’t pursue this as a career change, the tips can be used in any photographic situation. Thank you for a lovely day.
♥♥♥♥ S.H. – 10 Nov 14 Very informative. A little bit disappointed that the “Groom” came along in an open neck blue shirt so our photo shoot was not quite so realistic. That aside Anna is very enthusiastic and took a lot of time and trouble to get the right shots for us during the afternoon slot. Would definitely recommend this course.
♥♥♥♥♥ B.A. – 13 February 2014 Lots of valuable information and personal experience from the tutor. Highly recommended. P.C. – 11 February 2014 Excellent day well worth doing, very informative great tuition.
