How much is a wedding? And what do we get?

Moat House Wedding Photographers Acton Trussell

This is quite often the first question we are asked and without doubt one of the most difficult to answer  because no two weddings are ever the same and no two brides want the same thing, every wedding is unique.  It’s a little like trying to purchase your wedding dress blindfold and wearing gloves! – you need to see and feel – which is why we are always happy to spend some time with you to present our packages and coverages to you, and to explain how they fit in with your budget.

Our price guide contains five alternative coverages that will give you a wide and varied choice of how you would like to see your special day presented.  There are three styles of storybook – The Wedding Storybook,
The Premier Storybook and the Cameo collection.
If your wedding is to be a midweek affair you will find a section that covers this and finally should you prefer not to have an album then we also offer a disc only coverage.

Our prices are based upon a normal length ceremony up tp your meal with the option to include as many further elements of your special day as and where you may wish to.  This ensures that you will possess a beautiful storybook filled with the memories of the day that are meaningful and personal to yourselves.

We hope you will find a coverage that is perfect for you, however, we are always prepared to discuss your day with you and design a bespoke package just for you.

You will have a private online gallery of all your finished images, password protected to share with your family and friends, they can purchase prints online too if they wish.
If you choose a storybook album we hope to have a pre design available for you to view soon after you return from honeymoon, any changes are then made so that it is perfect for you before it is printed and bound, and handed to you to treasure forever.
