Wedding Photographer in Essex

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Gary Derbridge and I am a Southend based Professional Commercial, Portrait and Wedding photographer in Essex.

I have been lucky enough to become an international multi award-winning photographer, quite a mouthful however it is something I am very proud of.

Words that people often use to describe me when leaving testimonials are professional, modern, relaxed and creative. I think these are all vital aspects of any professional wedding photographer. If you are interested in seeing more of my client’s comments about my wedding photography service you can find them on my kind words page.

In my opinion, the most important thing when choosing a wedding photographer in Essex & the surrounding area is finding someone that you can relax with. This will ensure the best possible photos on the day itself. Therefore I encourage meeting me in my Southend office before the wedding so you can find out if I am the right photographer for you! We can have an informal chat about your day and see some of my handmade products.

I have a range of sample albums we can go through, and discuss your wedding day in further detail. You will have questions for me, and I will be happy to go through them all! I have over 10 years experience in the wedding industry, so if you have any other questions which are not photo related I am still more than happy to help.

What do my Wedding Clients say?

“We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer for our day. If you choose Gary to photograph your wedding, you won’t be disappointed.
The whole process was so easy from consultation, to the wedding day itself, and designing our album. Gary is a dream to work with, so professional yet friendly, he even remembered each family member’s name! Thank you, Gary, for all your hard work and our amazing photos and album.”

As a result, we cannot stop looking at them and are so excited to get them printed. My husband and I would recommend Gary as a wedding photographer to everybody. He is at the top of his game, 100 out of 10”
