Kernwell Photography




Distinctive and emotive photography that tells your story.

Our approach is quite simple. We take beautiful photos of what really matters. The moments, big and small. Your love and connections, to family and friends. Celebrations, excitement and joy, in photos that tell your story.

We are a husband and wife team, specializing in wedding, couple and family photography. There are two of you, so there are two of us to capture your day. We split up while each of you get ready and meet back up for the ceremony and reception. This means no one’s prep gets missed out and we have the time to capture all aspects of your day.

We believe that you should enjoy and experience your wedding fully. Most of the day, we’ll work unobtrusively to capture emotion and details. We’ll document the big and small moments as they unfold. When it’s time for portraits, we’ll provide gentle direction to make sure you and your guests look your very best. We’ll dedicate enough time for portraits, but aim to return you to your guests quickly. We want you to spend the day with the people who matter most.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and craft. Our work is a fine-art style, captured through a hybrid approach of film and digital photography. Nothing beats the natural skin tones and creamy highlights of film, while digital is fantastic for its versatility and detail. Our digital post-production workflow ensures consistency in the photos you’ll receive.

We believe there’s something magical about first seeing your photos on beautiful fine art paper. We send all our couples a selection of our favourite images in print, so you to have something to hold as a memory from the day.

We are based in London, but happy to travel anywhere in the world. Please get in touch with us – we’d love to tell your story.
