Wedding

Isle of Wight Wedding Photographer . . . .
Steve Thearle LMPA

I qualified as a Master Photographer in the 1980’s and have enjoyed wedding photography ever since. I strive to offer both the assured professionalism of an experienced wedding photographer [more than 600 weddings] and the enthusiasm of one who delights in capturing all the romance, fun and detail of the day.

If, perhaps, you’re not mad on over arty set pieces but want some­one to capture the magic of your day and your personality with creativity and taste and have a quality set of images at the end of it – If you love the idea of reportage and don’t fancy spending hours being posed for portraits or formal shots, then I could be the photographer for you!

You may also be pleasantly surprised by the price:
For medium to large weddings I have three prices, according to the length of time you would like me to continue covering events. I charge £550 for most Weddings (which covers some pre-wedding activity through to the first dance) and £850 if you would like the evening party included.
Reviving an old favorite, I also now offer coverage ending at the beginning of the meal for £400. These prices are for digital coverage, a DVD with full sized files and a web gallery [at least 3 months] for your guests’ reference. For low-season weddings or last minute bookings I offer a discount; and for smaller celebrations I have packages starting at £200 – please ask.

I take many hundreds of photos during the course of a wedding, and put about one third onto the web gallery within a few days of the wedding. You get all the useable images on your DVD at printable size, [some or all duplicated as black and white, if you wish].You can have prints made anywhere [I place no restrictions on use], but I offer some packages of prints and books if you would prefer me to look after the finished print quality.

For examples of my work please see the Wedding Gallery If you like what you see, please get in touch and I look forward to discussing your particular day and wishes.

Some unprompted feedback from recent weddings :

These pics are fab! We are absolutely delighted – exactly what we wanted. You did an amazing job and we would recommend you without hesitation. I know it was a long day for you, but the pictures really sum up the day for us.
Many thanks again. Em & Steve

A big “THANK YOU” for our wonderful photos, and for all your hard work on the day. Lots of people have said they love the photos too. You were so good, on the day, we don’t remember you taking half of them! We had a beautiful day and you captured it perfectly.
Best Wishes, Claire and Luke

Wow, the photos are AMAZING!!! Nick and I are totally thrilled with the results. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We really feel that you have the captured the atmosphere perfectly, and looking through them brings back lots of wonderful memories of our special day. We’re still to see the dvd but hopefully we’ll get a chance to look through them over the weekend as well because my parents have said that they are equally as fabulous. I’ve sent the link to a few friends and family to have a look.
Thanks again! Carina and Nick

Currently en-route to USA somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. Just had a quick whizz through a few of the snaps and just wanted to say – fantastic! They really look great – will have a tough job picking one to be enlarged for the wall – maybe we will just paper the house in them! Thanks so much for all your hard work on the day, I am chuffed to bits by the results.
Yours, Glen and Deborah

Thanks for the photos. They are really brilliant. You really managed to capture all the best bits of the day and even some rather sweet moments too (that I didn’t remember!) which is really touching. Really pleased we have so many photos to choose from….
Laura and Tom

Hi Steve, I’ve just looked at the photos – they are fantastic! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all your hard work on Friday. It was a wonderful day and now we will have some stunning pictures to remember it all by. We both appreciate how hard you worked and that you stayed longer than planned and everyone commented on how relaxed, kind and friendly you were. I can’t wait to show Chris the pictures later!!

Can I thank you for the excellent service you provided us, at exceptional value for money. Your easy manner and experience were a godsend, both during the pre-event consultations and on the day itself. The photos are of the highest quality, with traditional structure and formality where required but also capturing so many of the little moments that made the day, which is exactly what we were after. We would not hesitate to recommend you enthusiastically to anyone seeking a top quality wedding photographer at a very reasonable price. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Best regards, Aden & Lucy

We have just looked through the gallery and the photos are amazing! We have so many favourites already. The ones on the beach with the reflections in the sand have blown us away. The group shots of the kids in action are fantastic. And the sun’s reflection of us on the tent – they are all awesome. You really captured the spirit of the day perfectly. Thank you so much. Thank you again for a first rate job – we’d recommend you to anyone.

We’ll be in touch shortly. Steve & Jackie

We had a great day thank you. The photos you took are amazing, they are just the sort we wanted and I think there is someone laughing or smiling in every picture. Your relaxed and friendly approach was mentioned by so many of our guests, so again a really big thank you.

Best wishes, Damon & Sam

Many thanks for the brilliant photos and your patience on the day. Everybody commented on how good you were to have around on the day and we wholeheartedly agree! The photos are fantastic and we can’t wait to show them off once we get home! Please feel free to use which ever pictures you like for your website, and we most certainly will be recommending you to anybody that we may come across that needs a photographer.

Many thanks, Emily and Ruarie

Thanks very much for the photos. They are brilliant!  We have been through them about 20 times already (we only got back from our honeymoon yesterday) and whenever we show them to someone else we spot something new! You really managed to capture the spirit of the day. We will treasure them forever. Thanks also for the DVD. We love the photo you have used on the cover. We have already had a request for the photo coming off the floating bridge for Cowes local archives!
With our best wishes and many thanks, Jenny and Rob

I’ve just had a quick look as I have to get off to an event but the pictures look FANTASTIC – you have done a brilliant job and I don’t know how you managed to cope so well in those conditions.
Many many thanks, Lucy
