Storytelling is what we believe in. It’s at the heart of all we do. We want to get to know you so we can create something truly special that not only encapsulates the most beautiful moments of your day, but also tells the story of the two of you as people.
Documentary Wedding Photography
We capture the essence of your day with candid, informal shots and stunning portraits. We look for the details that make your wedding different and make the most of the setting and light conditions, shooting with sensitivity and creativity to make your wedding a work of art.
Equally relaxed and creative in style, our wedding cinematography is edited in an elegant, non-linear way using live audio rather than just a musical soundtrack. This brings your personalities to the fore and makes our films compelling and fun to watch over and over again.
Here are some of the gorgeous couples who asked us to tell their story through documentary wedding photography and cinematography

Hello, my name is Guille
(Pronounced like DJ but with a hard G –> Ghee-Jay!) I am a Spanish documentary photographer and film maker and I’ve been living and working in the UK for a loooong time! I’m married to the lovely Jo who is also my business partner here at Viva la Wedding. The documentary wedding photography style has always suited me. In my spare time I love street photography, capturing those spontaneous moments when something truly magical happens in an everyday setting. How much more magical to be present on the most special day of people’s lives? I love photographing weddings, observing the interactions between you and your guests and capturing those special moments that will become iconic images in your lives. I’m very easy going and I put everyone at ease so that you don’t notice the camera. I love meeting couples and getting to know you before the big day so I can put your own stamp on things.
Your wedding is your day. This might sound obvious but it’s important to remember. We won’t take over your day but we will be as present as you want us to be. Most of the time you won’t even notice that we are at your wedding! The equipment we use is not bulky and obvious so we tend to just blend in like any other guest.
This said we are a very friendly bunch, so when it comes to interviewing members of the bridal party or organising guests for group shots we are very relaxed and easy to get along with. We film and photograph with all this in mind and we always get awesome results!
Our candid documentary approach means that we observe life around us and capture the moments we think make your day unique. This might be a special smile between the two of you or a hug or funny expression from one of your guests. Life is full of emotional moments and weddings even more so. We want to make sure we capture the essence of what you and your day are all about.
We know that your wedding day is the most important day of your lives because we’ve been there! As a married couple, we understand that it is a privilege to be asked to cover your big day and we make sure that all our cameramen take the same view, acting with respect, professionalism and a positive, friendly attitude.
OMG!!! A massive, massive thank you to you ALL!!!
Our wedding cinematography & photography arrived about 2 hours ago and its rendered us pretty useless as all we’ve been able to do is watch and view everything over and over!!!
Seriously amazing stuff capturing all the moments and details, some that we had already forgotten. Its an absolutely stunning reminder of the day! We are seriously in awe!
Thank for being a joy to work with, both on the day and in the planning stages.
Thank you for capturing our wedding day fantastically!
You’ve all been a delight to work with, right from my call to Jo, my facetime with Guille and to the photographs & filming on the day! I’ll definitely be recommending you to friends and family!
The wedding cinematographer captured everything we wanted and were very discreet so the guests hardly knew they were being filmed.
It was worth every penny and we were truly appreciative that you altered the package to suit our needs.
You are all totally fabulous and it was great to meet you before the wedding. The communication was fantastic both before and after our wedding day.
The whole experience with your company was brilliant! We will be highly recommending you!
