Wedding photographer in Southend

Welcome to my website Gary Derbridge Wedding Photography. I am a Creative and Professional wedding photographer in Southend covering all of the South East.

I offer bespoke wedding photography packages to fulfill every client’s dreams. As a professional and creative wedding photographer in Southend, my styles range from traditional to reportage, creating stunning wedding photographs of your very special day. I work unobtrusively during the wedding day, whilst still capturing the special memories that will last a lifetime.

I have experience in Indian, Chinese and Jewish wedding ceremonies some of which have combined English influences and traditions. If you are planning a specific type of wedding, I will be happy to discuss this with you & I am always eager to try new things.

Based in Essex, I have covered weddings in areas all of the county. I can accommodate further afield, often traveling into Kent, Hertfordshire, London, and Suffolk. I also travel to destination weddings! So just give me a call and I will be very pleased to talk to you.

On contact with me, I will be delighted to talk to you about your wedding and how I can help make your big day very special using my relaxed photography skills. I will normally photograph your wedding day from the bridal preparation until the staged cutting of the cake, but more coverage can be provided at your request. This can either be to the first dance or the end of the night.

I am a National Award Winning wedding photographer in Southend Essex and hopefully you can see the quality of my award winning wedding photography by visiting my Wedding Gallery and browse to your hearts content. There’s never any question of pressure sales tactics, I want my Wedding Photographs to speak for themselves.

So what is a pre wedding shoot?

I offer a pre wedding photo shoot to every one of my bride and grooms that choose to book me. We usually complete the shoot around 4-6 weeks before the wedding. It allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day and helps you realise how easy it is to get beautiful photographs. No awkard poses required!

All nerves will disappear after this pre-shoot, which will enable me to get the best possible photographs for you on the wedding day itself. Lots of my bride and grooms have said afterward how glad they were that we completed the pre-shoot first and that if they were honest they didn’t quite understand the benefits of it until we completed it.

After the photo shoot, all images are then fully edited and provided to you in your own private viewing gallery. You pick your favourite 3 images for me to make a wonderful signing board which makes the perfect keepsake from the wedding day for guests to signing and write their good wishes.

You can find more information about my engagement shoots here as well as be able to view images from recent shoots.

Can I get a wedding album?

Wedding photographer in Southend

We use what are in my opinion the best albums available on the market, Graphi Studio!

All the albums are carefully handmade in Italy and can be completely bespoke to your liking. Everything from size, paper type, cover, spine material to paper thickness can be chosen by you. Making it a really personal product to present your wedding photos over the rest of your lives.

The books are designed in house, and you will proof and make changes as many times as you wish throughout the process. Only when you are 100% happy with the album, will we allow it to be sent off to Italy for printing and binding.

I have a range of sample albums in my office, so if you wish to take a look please get in touch. My office is based in Southend on Sea and I will be more than happy to go through all of the different options available for you.
