Mother of the Groom

Our son and daughter-in-law chose Gary to photograph their wedding in August. As we are from a retired professional wedding photography family Gary was under extra pressure! Gary exceeded our expectations. The images taken are outstanding and there are so many to choose from. We have just received our parents album of photographs and I can honestly say we are blown away. It is a beautiful reminder of what was a happy, relaxed family day. If you are looking for an outstanding wedding photographer Gary Derbridge is your man. He is simply the best and we would have no hesitation in recommending him.

About my photography style

I have worked for over 10 years developing a unique style and way of editing my photography work. All weddings that I take on throughout the year are always photographed by me, and edited by me too! This means everyone of my amazing clients know exactly what they are getting and nothing is left to chance.

I often get comments, even from other professional photographers, saying how they love the colour balance and tones of my images. It’s definitely something I have been studying for years, to create natural images that reflect your day perfectly. Of course, it’s also amazing to get such great feedback from other professional wedding photographers in Essex.

If you visit my portfolio page, you will be able to see my style of work, and decide if it is what you’re looking for. If so, I will be delighted to hear all about your day and give you a little more information about the wedding collections that I offer.

I am really excited to find out all about your big day!
