Anneli Marinovich Photography
My name is Anneli and I am an internationally published wedding & lifestyle photographer. My wedding photography is light, vibrant, romantic, elegant and timeless. I work mainly with natural light to tell the story of the day, which gives my work a relaxed & editorial feel.
My approach to the day is quite photojournalistic, and with some light direction, I work with my couples to create beautiful wedding portraits at sunset. If you would like to make the most of your wedding at The Olde Bell, get in touch.
Ed Clayton Photography
Ed Clayton specialises in high-end wedding photography; he blends candid, photojournalistic and traditional-style shots to create elegant, story-telling images capturing all the unique moments of your special day. His accolades include being rated in the top 4 wedding photographers in the world (WIE Awards 2013) and he is one of only 40 UK wedding photographers internationally accredited by the ISPWP (as of June 2014 rated in the top 2), Ed is a highly sought after and award winning wedding photographer.
Ed is a confident individual whose unique and contemporary approach is friendly and relaxed in comparison to the stereo-typical wedding photographer. He enjoys shooting in this manner, capturing any moments as they happen. This, he says, gives a more accurate reflection of the day and is also far less stressful for the Bride and Groom. Additionally, he likes to prove that any required formal group photos can be taken quickly, smoothly and with tact.
