Destination Wedding Photography

Image by Rebecca Douglas Photography - www.rebeccadouglas.co.ukIf you’re planning your destination wedding and are looking for a photographer who will work with you to put your ideas and plans at the heart of your approach, then that is exactly what I offer. I have been lucky enough to shoot across France, Italy, Belgium, Spain and Iceland this year and through my travels and shooting, I have been able to capture some truly special moments.

Tuscany Wedding Inspiration and Ideas Destination Photography 0014

I love to capture love, chase light and create dreamy, soft, natural images full of emotion that will forever connect you to how you were feeling on your day. I work with you to understand how you would like your photography to fit in with your plans, plan any group shots and understand what you love about each other and your venue which allows me to tell your story honestly and authentically.

I love to tell the story of your whole day, starting around 1.5 hours ahead of leaving for the ceremony, capturing those moments of excitements as preparations build, throughout your day and finishing up with the first few songs of the night when everyone hits the dance floor. I blend in with your guests so that I can shoot discreetly and capture candid images of everyone looking relaxed and happy. I am always thrilled when guests think that I am a friend of yours, a true testament that I slot in and feel at ease with your wedding party.

I work with an assistant who helps me carry kit, find your lovely guests for group shots, work ahead of me to set up flash so we can seamlessly glide through your day and be a general pair of helping hands. I find that I work more discreetly this way too and I am free to capture more  precious moments.

Lucy & George's Paris Engagement Shoot by Rebecca Douglas Photography 0158

My office suite is opposite Ashford International Eurostar terminal connecting me to mainland Europe in no time at all. I can travel to Paris in two hours, Brussels in just over an hour and these hubs mean that I can connect into the Netherlands, Germany and beyond! I live in Ashford, Kent and am only a 10 minute drive to Eurotunnel and 20 minutes to Dover and regularly drive abroad too which affords me great flexibility to travel to your wedding. London Gatwick is 60 miles away and London Stansted is 80 miles away, so I have easy access for destinations that are further afield.

For engagement shoots in Paris, I have access to Eurostar trains that allow me to travel in a day or if you wanted to shoot at sunset and into the evening, one overnight stay would be required. Depending on your ideas and how you’d like your destination engagement shoot captured, I may need to work with an assistant so we can maximise the environment and opportunities that present themselves!

When I shoot weddings abroad, depending on transport and connections, I will travel one day ahead of your wedding and return the day after allowing me to arrive and be fresh and completely dedicated to your day. I keep pricing simple and charge for my day of shooting, plus transport, connections and accommodation.

Danielle & Jason's Paris Engagement Shoot by Rebecca Douglas Photography 0312On the evening of your wedding day, after I have left you to party away, I back up your images and will pick just a few showstoppers for you to get excited about and then the rest of your images are edited within 10 days of your wedding and will be shared with you in your online gallery which guests can buy prints from and you will receive your images on USB just after this.  You can expect at least 600 images with a selection in black and white too and these are all provided on your USB in high resolution for you to print, share and upload.

I offer a range of beautiful albums and printed products which you can see by clicking here.

BEAUTIFUL, JOYFUL AND NATURAL MOMENTS CAPTURED IN A RELAXED AND AUTHENTIC WAY.

DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

QUIRKY AND ALTERNATIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN KENT AND BEYOND THAT PLACES YOU AND YOUR IDEAS AT THE HEART.

Trusted experience & peace of mind

If you’re planning your destination wedding and are looking for a photographer who will work with you to put your ideas and plans at the heart of your approach, then that is exactly what I offer. I have been lucky enough to shoot across France, Italy, Belgium, Spain and Iceland this year and through my travels and shooting, I have been able to capture some truly special moments. I love that couples from across the world have trusted in me to capture their special moments across Europe.

I am based in Ramsgate in South Kent and can see France & Belgium from my house so I feel very close to Europe! I can travel to Paris in two hours from nearby Ashford International, Brussels in just over an hour and these hubs mean that I can connect into the Netherlands, Germany and beyond! I'm also just a 40 minute drive to Eurotunnel and 30 minutes to Dover and regularly drive abroad too which affords me great flexibility to travel to your wedding. London Gatwick is 90 miles away and London Stansted is 100 miles away, so I have easy access for destinations that are further afield.

TIME CAPSULE MOMENTS….

It’s such a privilege to work with you from your planning stage and see your wedding plans grow along the way. Your story and how you express yourselves at your wedding often shows up in the smallest of moments.  Your vows are such a small part of your day, a small dot on that timeline and your wedding is all of the joy, giggles, hugs, high fives, tears, hand holding and dancing you share with everyone around you on your day. It is all of this that made me fall in love with capturing weddings and my heart swells for the ‘time capsule moments’, the things you will look back on for the years ahead; milestones where you look to your wedding album will transport you back to that feeling and images of everyone you love.

PUTTING YOUR IDEAS AT THE HEART….

I love all the flutters of excitement and feeling the flow of your day. I have an eye for all the little things and how everything pieces together tell the story of your day. I love hearing about your plans and what you’d like from your photography to truly work with you, putting your dreams at the heart of what I do.

A BLANK PAGE APPROACH….

As well as shooting in a reportage style, I’m happy to work to any suggestions of formal or group shots that you’d like to include. I come with a blank page ready to fill it with your ideas of how you would like your day to unfold and mirror my approach to effortlessly fit around this. People compliment me on my relaxed style and I’ve been overwhelmed when people ask me how long I’ve been friends with the couple I’m shooting for, which to me is the ultimate feedback as it tells me people are comfortable around me.
