Ian Stading Photography


  • How long have you been professional photographer ? over 25 years
  • Are you insured ? Yes, with Public Liability, Professional Indemnity & equipment cover
  • How would you define your style? I adapt my style to your requirements -  reportage is popular, black & white is on trend - all images are captured in colour - they can be converted  & edited to your style
  • Who will actually photograph our wedding ? I personally shoot & process all the weddings, I work alongside a second photographer
  • How far ahead do I need to book my wedding photographer ?photograph a limited number of weddings per year (approx 20-25) - to avoid disappointment you should try to reserve your date as soon as possible
  • What type of coverage do you provide ? Our essentials coverage commences at the ceremony venue approx one hour prior to the start & concludes with the line up for the wedding breakfast. If you require bridal preps an additional fee (£50) will be payable. It is possible to photograph the speeches or evening reception for an additional fee. We offer discounts for multiple extras
  • What about deposits and payments ?  I charge a low a non-refundable booking fee of £100 at the time of booking - the purpose of the booking fee is to secure our services for a particular time & date - the balance is required 14 days prior to the wedding day. 
  • What happens if your camera develops a fault ? I carry backups - I have a huge range of professional camera equipment & duplicate everything - this also applies to our computer equipment
  • What happens if it rains? I always plan for bad weather & will discuss this with you before the big day - including the possibility of indoor shots at the ceremony or reception venue
  • What happens if you fall ill on the day ? I maintain reciprocal relationships with a number of other photographers who offer standby support if such an event were to occur.
  • Can you show me a complete set of recent wedding pictures? You can see images from recent weddings on this website - I can also show you examples of a number of completed weddings
  • Do you provide a written contract ? The booking form provides the contract between the photographer & the couple - there are no hidden extras & no obligation on your behalf to upgrade or buy extras - this does not effect the type of coverage we offer
  • When will I receive my pictures ? We aim to have your images ready for viewing within 2-3 weeks
  • How are the finished images presented ? our Essentials package includes all photography, edited images supplied on High resolution USB with full reproduction rights for you to print from or design your own albums.
