Philippe Mathijs - May 2014

Every display includes fabulous, romantic heart-shaped fireworks in the sky and a brilliant finale of gold stardust. People love fireworks and we believe there is no better way to entertain your family & friends. While everything else can be photographed and video-taped by guests, fireworks are something that requires everyone to put down the camera and just watch and enjoy and remember, which can create a moment of closeness in the group and a feeling of spontaneity. There are few opportunities in life when you can have your own firework display, but you can on your special day…

David Bostock (LPRS, LBPPA)
I am David Bostock and I am an experienced professional Wedding photographer who has photographed over 300 Weddings, won several international Wedding photography awards and become a recommended photographer for a number of high profile Wedding venues, including the famous five-star Stoke Park Club in Buckinghamshire The words 'reportage', 'photojournalism' and 'candid' are used a lot these days to describe the style of work that I create, but I like to think of my style as relaxed and informal, with the fun shining through! The end result is an emotional, visual story, where drama, beauty and an endearing playfulness showcase and preserve the treasured events of the special day. I offer the finest Wedding albums in the world by Queensberry to preserve these special memories.
I take a personal approach to each and every Wedding I photograph, it’s important for me to get to know and to understand you both as a couple and discuss the day you have planned. I also offer pre-Wedding shoots as an option to get used to being photographed. This gives me a chance to get to know a little bit more about you and your personalities and helps me capture the essence of you as a couple.
I'd love to discuss the plans you have for your wedding day at Stoke Park Club and how I can capture the important memories for you, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Wedding Photography, like all visual media, has been transformed in recent times. Couples no longer wish to pose formally for traditional stereotyped shots, preferring a more fluid and natural approach to their pictures. They ask for Black & White or Sepia pictures and they hate the thought of hours spent arranging formal groups. Above all they do not wish to have their Wedding spoilt by a photographer who dominates the day.
Rather than tell my clients what they want, I have listened to their requests and evolved, "LifeStyle Weddings", a new approach, which combines both informal, reportage black & white photography, with creative, natural, colour photography. Family groups are still taken but with a more relaxed feel. The Bride & Groom pictures are taken using natural light and capturing natural expressions. Above all, the pictures reflect the fun and happiness of the day.
This approach has proven to be very popular with both clients and professional photographic organisations alike. I have twice, been awarded the title, “UK Wedding Photographer of the Year”, and in 2002 I became only the second British photographer ever, to receive the American award of “Accolade of Lifetimes Photographic Excellence”
Relaxed, formal and candid photography in Colour and Black & White. You choose how long I spend at your Wedding. Lifestyle 2 starts at the place of ceremony and continues to the start of the Wedding Breakfast. Lifestyle 3 adds in the Brides home, and Lifestyle 4 includes both Brides home and the reception and speeches.

Guy Hearn Photography
Stoke Park Club is one of my favourite wedding venues - not just because I got married there myself! I know Stoke Park inside out and have shot there in all weathers, and all seasons. I have been a recommended photographer since 2006.
Weddings allow me to create beautiful, spirited and uplifting images full of love and laughter. I photograph using natural light wherever possible so there is little or no intrusion from flash, and I do not interrupt your day. It’s a wedding day not a photo shoot, and I believe the most intimate, honest and enjoyable photographs are taken quietly and spontaneously.
I dedicate around ten minutes to family photos and these are done with the minimum of fuss. My portraits of the Bride and Groom are natural and free flowing, with no stilted or uncomfortable posing. I want you to be yourselves, having the time of your lives on your wedding day!
With over ten years experience and over 350 weddings to my name I am a very safe pair of hands and at each and every wedding I work tirelessly to ensure that the photographs are a timeless reminder of how much you enjoyed your day at Stoke Park.

The Wedding Documentary Company
Your Wedding day will be filled with emotions, excitement, fun and stories and that’s exactly what we capture on your Wedding video. We’ve been making TV for ITV, Channel 4, five and The Discovery Channel for over 20 years and we bring that experience and storytelling skill to your day, in a low profile, discreet way, using small, broadcast quality cameras, along with an ability to melt into the background when required.
“Documentary” package - for those who are comfortable with having a camera around we offer our acclaimed “Documentary” package, a unique, light hearted, feel good reminder of the day, with the occasional chat to guests and family members; a great way to capture the characters and excitement of the day for current, and future generations. The day is set to the music of your choice to add momentum, emotion, and just a touch of humour. Your film has a feel of a fully fledged TV programme, but one that you have privately commissioned, and will be viewed by only those you choose to share it with.
“Fly on the Wall” package - for those less comfortable with cameras, or requiring an even more discreet approach, we offer the “Fly on the Wall” package.
Similar in quality to the Documentary but with no guest or family interaction, we film the day as it unfolds, and use music and time stamps to add a narrative to your video, and produce a film that could be compared to what an extra guest would see on the day. This is an increasingly popular package and combines great quality video and editing, with a high level of discretion.
