NOTTINGHAMSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Venus are Andy & Samantha, we’re a double act. We are wedding photographers specialising in natural wedding photography throughout Nottinghamshire and the UK.
Why Venus? Well, Venus is the Roman Goddess of LOVE. We love photography and we love people, so it’s no surprise that we absolutely love photographing weddings!

DEFINITELY NOT BORING
We are not traditional wedding photographers, we see ourselves as your guests, and we don’t take over and dominate your day.
Definitely, we’re not going to push you into having endless boring, staged photos when you should be enjoying your day with your family and your friends.
It’s your wedding day not our photoshoot.
Discreetly and unobtrusively, we will capture hundreds of real moments. Photos that are natural, beautiful, and full of emotion.

UNPARALLELED CUSTOMER SERVICE
There are two of us. We come as a pair, but we are not a couple! We’ve worked together for over 20 years and know what each other is thinking and trust each other implicitly.
Neither of us is the “second shooter”, we are both full time professional wedding photographers, photography is our only income.
We pride ourselves on our unparalleled customer service. We dedicate time to your wedding, and only your wedding.
You’ll not wait more than 3 weeks to receive your photos, every one hand edited by us, and all in colour and black & white.
Our albums are extraordinary works of art – handmade, gorgeous, designed by us, and guaranteed for life.
“Sam and Andy, thank you so much for our wedding day. You made it the most memorable experience our lives. You managed to capture every laugh, tear and special moment of the day. We cannot stop looking at our photos. So impressed with your work ethic and professionalism throughout the day. Considering you were with us from very early until very late yet the quality of the photos didn’t waver. From start to finish exceptional photos. We’re so glad we chose you guys for our wedding. Thank you so much, us typing this doesn’t do you enough justice but we hope it’ll go some way to show our appreciation.” – Charlotte & Scott – 12/09/18
Why two photographers?
We are not traditional wedding photographers. We specialise in natural wedding photography, not staged, not posed, almost entirely candid.
No matter how skilled and experienced a wedding photographer is, one can not capture as many real moments as two working independently of each other.
We literally can be in two places at once. No unfathomable quantum physics required, it’s because there are two of us!
Multiple views of your day, different perspectives, multiple angles, real reactions to real moments…. the list of reasons is almost endless.
“Absolutely amazing photographers!!! Sam & Andy were fantastic all day & made everyone feel relaxed which created the most natural photo’s I’ve ever seen. They captured every part of our day perfectly & brought some fantastic memories back for us when we saw them. All our guests commented on how fab they were. Cannot thank you both enough xx” – Charli & Rob – 16/01/17
We are thrilled you are interested in allowing us to be part of one of the most important days of your lives. Please view our portfolio and give us a call to talk about your wedding photography. We are here to answer questions and chat about your ideas. We’ll go over everything and plan for everything, and, if something different comes up on your day then we’ll work with it or around it.
Our wedding photography draws brides and grooms from all over the country, not just Nottinghamshire residents. We always meet local clients in person, but we are more than happy to “virtually” meet with clients that live further afield.
We do get booked up fast so please contact us asap to check if your date is still available.
“Excellent personal and professional service. They took our wedding photos and were like stealthy ninjas, taking beautiful natural shots that are just breathtaking. Such good professional service but yet so intimate and personal, they were like guests on the day, meeting everyone and snapping the best shots. People are still commenting on them 6 months later. Just the most amazing photographers!” – Martin & Gareth – 27/08/16
We love photographing Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire weddings and are drawn to the unique venues of these two historic counties. The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club, Chatsworth House (yes, that’s our photo!), Osmaston Park, Stoke Rochford Hall, and East Lodge Country House Hotel are some of our favourite wedding venues we photographed at. We also regularly cover weddings at Aston Hall Hotel, Hodsock Priory, Ye Olde Bell Barnby Moor, West Retford Hotel, The Crown Hotel Bawtry, Clumber Park Hotel, Mount Pleasant Hotel, Worksop Town Hall, Retford Town Hall and numerous other venues in the greater North Nottinghamshire area.
“I couldn’t recommend or praise to anyone enough at how amazing Venus are! After my amazing wedding they are all I talk about and that is all the guests can talk about, they were professional and super friendly, which is what you want when they are with you all day, they came to me at around 9am and didn’t leave my venue untill after 10pm. We have the memories forever from our wedding, extremely incredible photos. I have never seen photos like this and I also haven’t been to a wedding where the photographers are as amazing as Venus are! ” – Jade & Shaun – 12/09/18
