I provide wedding photography in Brighton, Sussex, London and the South using a creative and fun approach, to help you feel relaxed whilst being photographed. I'm also more than happy to travel further to any part of the UK and beyond!

I like to be very subtle and discreet, capturing things as they happen throughout the day and blending into the wedding itself. Your wedding is unique and I don’t want to interfere with that. I aim to become a part of the day by creating a relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy having your photograph taken in. We will work together to get great photographs of you both, capture all the details of your day and even line up the family for a few (in) formal shots. I also want you to have time with your guests and loved ones whilst I work, and for photography to not take over your day.

Everything is very informal and I won’t order you around or pose you like a supermodel. But when the light is perfect and using the beautiful surroundings you’ve chosen for your wedding, I’ll capture awesome photographs of you both together.

Inspiration by Philip Bedford Wedding Photography


Martin & Sarah
When we first met Phil and looked at his portfolio it was evident that he has a fresh approach and sought to capture the essence of a special occasion. His professionalism and personal touch sealed the deal! We couldn't have been happier that we chose Phil as our wedding photographer. In addition to more traditional photos, he also took some quirkier ones that we had asked for which captured the mood of the day. We would highly recommend Phil for your special event.
Tim & Meg
Philip is an absolutely awesome guy. He was with us from about 10.45am until 9pm (I think). He had such a calming, chilled way about him which made us feel at ease with having photos done. Just from seeing our previews I know we are going to have some absolutely outstanding photos to help remind us of our incredible day. Don't hesitate to book this man for your wedding, you will not regret it!
Chris & Alice
I just wanted to say a huge and heart felt thank you for all your work. So many people have said what incredible photos we have of our day and we completely agree. They are gorgeous and you have captured so many special moments. Thank you!!

Sam & Laura
To say that we were happy with Phil as our wedding photographer would be a massive understatement.

From the first moment we contacted him and let him know that we needed a photographer, Phil has been meticulous with details, quick to respond to all enquiries, and in plenty of detail, and always prepared to offer suggestions that will enhance the final product.

In the lead up to the wedding, Phil asked for lots of details, which we were happy to provide. This gave us a sense of trust in him, in anticipation that the care he dedicates to his paperwork is replicated in his photographs.

On the day, Phil got the balance between being assertive enough to make sure he got the perfect photographs, and discreet when we were letting our hair down, perfectly.

We sat with a glass of wine and amongst friends to view our photos for the first time the other night, and it was quite an emotional experience. My wife and I are demanding people, who have a high attention to detail, and we said that these were the best wedding photographs that we have seen.

We are very, very happy customers, and would recommend him highly!
Rob & Naomi
Phil is a hugely talented, reliable and organised professional, but perhaps most of all a great guy. He was one of the first people we discussed our wedding plans with, and his wealth of experience played a huge part not just in our wedding photographs (which are better than we could have ever imagined!), but in the planning and execution of almost every aspect of our big day. From day one of our wedding planning onward, Phil went considerably out of his way to 'be there' for us when we needed. Always amazingly fast to reply to our many questions, he was the calming voice of reason both before but especially during our ceremony and reception. In fact on the day itself, Phil ended up effectively taking on the role of our event organiser when we realised (surprise surprise) that yes, we were going to be too busy to coordinate five different contractors and 100 guests ourselves. This would have been impressive enough, but most of all we have been blown away by the quality of Phil's artwork. His photos are totally beautiful and unique, and we will forever cherish the images both Phil and his amazing assistant Gosia took of our family and friends. A few months on, we still look at them every day. Phil, thank you so much, you are utterly amazing and we couldn't recommend you highly enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Dear Phil

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work last Saturday. We are so pleased you agreed to photograph our wedding and be part of our day. So so many people have commented on how amazing you were and I couldn't have hoped to meet a nicer man, or a better photographer!

We really appreciate everything you did to help make our day so truly special. Thank you!

Also had us in fits of laughter, particularly the photo booth! Came home from work to find our wedding album has arrived. Thank you so much, absolutely thrilled, the album is so beautiful! We can't thank you enough for all the work you have put in to capturing our special day and providing us with so many wonderful memories.

Thank you for capturing our day in such a perfect way Phil, all of the photographs are wonderful - we can't stop looking at them and smiling! We especially love the photos in the long grass, so glad you found that spot, the colours look fantastic and really embody the relaxed, fun feel of our entire day.
Andy & Gemma
We looked at the photos last night and we absolutely love them. It took us right back to the day and we both saw parts of it that we otherwise wouldn't have. Thank you so much. We booked the right man! I'll carry on trying to send work your way in future definitely
Tom & Gemma
Thanks - we picked [our album] up from the post office this morning. We love it! It's great quality and the picture arrangement looks even better in the finished product. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Thank you

Philip went above and beyond on our wedding day. He was so helpful prior to and on the day and made everything run smoothly. We've had so many comments from our guests on how good he was at his job on the day (and what a nice man he is) and we've had even more amazing comments on his photos! Thank you Phil for capturing the best day of our lives perfectly.

Hey Phil! We love the photos, can't stop looking through them.

Looking forward to married life actually starting!! Also thought I would let you know that you have had many compliments from our guests. They loved your relaxed approach and said you weren't intrusive at all. Helped make the relaxed/happy wedding atmosphere!

See you both soon. And continue the great photography work. Very talented!

Thank you so much for our photo books and others bits! We are so pleased with them and the quality of the photo book is fantastic.

You have been so great from start to finish and we really can't thank you enough. We don't hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know getting married!

We've both had a look through the pictures and we love them! Really pleased that you managed to capture our big day so brilliantly. We're really looking forward to getting the disk now!

Thanks so much again!

Marian & Rob
I wanted to tell you that the photos are incredible, we absolutely LOVE them!!!! We couldn't have wished for better pictures, thank you so much! You really have taken all the pictures we asked for, many of which were a bit different to the norm and I think you really captured the vision we were after and we are absolutely thrilled!!!

The horse ones are fantastic and I particularly love the one where Rob is carrying me taken from behind, I think that's really special! As for the horse and cart, wow, us all on the straw bales, and all the pictures of everyone enjoying the day... I could go on, they are great!!!

Thank you so much for listening so intently to what we were after, I really appreciate your time and effort that has gone into making these what they are :)

Matt & Amy
Good morning Phil, Everyone who’s seen our photos has said how good they are and most have said that they’re probably the best wedding photos in terms of style and quality they’ve seen. Amy and I feel the same.

Several of my friends and family also mentioned you specifically and had nothing but praise for the way you handled the day with poise, practicality and ease. We would always recommend your services to others and the photos speak for themselves.
Sam & Holly
You got some great shots throughout the day and it really captured everything we wanted. It was lovely to look back over them. You were brilliant on the day as well, fun to have around and very professional.

We got the wedding album in the post yesterday and really enjoyed looking through it last night. Lots of great memories and fun to relive the day through all the photos.

We've been extremely happy with the service we have got from you and won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family that get married in the future.

Ant & Tam
Mr Bedford... Tam and I can't begin to thank you for being the best photographer in the WORLD at the weekend! You really went so far above and beyond the call of duty that the call of duty was a indistinguishable dot in the distance!

Thanks again Philip you are a truly splendid gentleman!
