I’ve been flying drones for more than a decade now, and always aim to get some aerial photos and videos of your wedding, providing we have the weather for it (and time permitting). Drone photography and videography has become a special part of the package that I offer to couples.
I include this for free for every couple that books me to photograph their wedding day, as it’s a wonderful way to capture your special day and gives a unique and beautiful perspective of your venue.
There is nothing better than getting a shot from high above of your wedding venue. Especially when it’s a castle, or stately home. The perspective from high above is just breathtaking, and should not be missed.
I’ll aim to get different angles and perspectives so you can really appreciate just how stunning it looks.
You don’t have to settle for boring group shots any more. With my drone, we can get some photos (and video) from high above so your photo of everyone can be something a little bit different.
It adds a unique image to the photos from your special day, and will be that extra special shot to remind you of everyone that was there with you.
With a drone, we have the chance to get some really dramatic images of your wedding venue. Especially if we have a break in some really bad weather. People always ask me what happens if it rains on the day – well, with luck, if there is a break in the rain, I’ll send SAM up to get some really dramatic shots of your wedding venue.
Yes, I have full insurance including public liability insurance. I can provide a copy of my certificate for your venue.
Yes. There is no charge for flying the drone. It is included in the day for free. However, if the weather is bad, or there is not enough time, or if the location does not give permission, I will not fly the drone.
If it’s too windy, or raining it will not be possible to fly the drone. However, if there is a break in the weather, and there is enough time, I will fly the drone for a short period of time to try and get some shots.
Usually yes. However, there are some locations where it is not possible, or permitted to fly a drone. Such as:
Unfortunately, no. Due to the operating guidelines provided by the CAA and under the terms of the license and insurance I have, there are certain conditions that may prevent the drone from being flown on your day. This can include:
I have enough battery power on the day to fly for up to 45 to 50 minutes. However, the total flying time will depend on the plan for the day, the weather, and the location / venue.
I usually aim to take a few photos from different angles, and a few minutes of video.
Yes. I have the relevant license to ensure I am legally permitted to fly the drone.
There can be. It is customary to perform a risk assessment on the day to ensure safe flying conditions. If I deem it unsafe to fly, the drone will not be used.

We recently had Simon photograph our wedding and I can’t recommend this talented man enough! Not only did he make me feel so at ease and fitted into the wedding, he helped with all sorts on the day, even getting me a drink when I needed one! The photos are absolutely stunning and we got them back so quickly… very talented photographer and such a great guy.View more testimonials

Simon photographed our wedding in April, it was an amazing day and Simon captured it perfectly. Simon worked really well with our videographer and was amazing at getting people to what he wanted, quickly! We had a lot of compliments from our guests! We received the images very quickly and we are really happy with what we received. We can’t wait to show all of our friend and family when we receive our online gallery. Thank you so much Simon! Would definitely recommend!View more testimonials

We booked Simon for our wedding in September after meeting with him to run through our requirements. We immediately felt comfortable and at ease and knew he was the man for the job.
We couldn’t have been more impressed with the photos, which captured our magical day in every possible way, right down to small details and capturing those ‘moments’ which you don’t expect.
The best compliment I can give is that Simon is a great character, something we learned was invaluable in teasing out those photo opportunities, we had so many guests mention how great the photographer was during the day.
We were so impressed with Simon, we then took him on holiday with us to Singapore to photograph our ‘Singapore Wedding’ which was a re-run of the wedding with our extended Singaprean family.
Simon is a top top bloke and his photography skills equal his character in every way. We recommend him to all our friends and family.
Thank you Simon for capturing both our special days!View more testimonials

Simon photographed our wedding in July 2022 and surpassed all expectations of ours. From when we orinigally contacted Simon, through to after our wedding, he was extremely professional, friendly and promptly and efficiently replied to all of our queries. He was fully transparent with the services he offers and the cost for these services, and took the time to discuss with both myself and my husband what we wanted from our wedding photography experience. The day of our wedding Simon arrived early in the morning and straight away became part of the wedding preparations, getting to know the bridal party and ensuring key photographs were captured, yet stress free. Simons professionalism was conveyed throughout the whole day, and his experience in his field was truly evident. Simon naturally doubled up as a wedding coordinator – for example ensuring guests were in the right place at the right time, organising cake cutting/first dance/sparklers, and generally being present at every important moment in the day to make sure it ran smoothly. Simon made us so at ease having our photographs taken and was happy to continue taking our sole photographs for as long/little as we desired, and his enthusiasm made us feel so special as a just wed couple.Simon ensured our turnaround on our photographs was as quick as possible, and the quality of the photographs was excellent. We honestly could not recommend Simon anymore, do not hesitate to book him to photograph your wedding, it was an absolute pleasure to have him photograph ours.View more testimonials
