Surrey Wedding Photography
The family wedding photography business started in 1897 with a Lancaster Instrantograph plate camera and photography was undertaken throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Many of the beautiful wedding albums produced over 100 years ago still exist in good condition. In 1970, with the introduction of professional VPS colour film, the first portrait studio opened at 340 High Street, Dorking, Surrey. Four years later a new studio and showroom was built near Epsom Downs and a showroom in The Street, Ashtead. In the 1990s our website became our showroom, but we are still very happy to meet couples in Surrey, and throughout the UK to show some of our beautiful aibums and portfolios and discuss wedding photography.

He continued his training in society wedding photography as an assistant to Royal Photographer, Tom Hustler before taking over the family wedding business.
