Nottinghamshire Wedding Photographer - Natural Wedding Photography

Natural Wedding Photography

Beautiful, timeless storytelling with a focus on capturing real moments and emotions.
Available for weddings across Nottinghamshire, the UK, and worldwide.


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!

What we really, really love is capturing real moments, filled with life and emotion. We love keeping everything natural and relaxed. Yes, Venus loves keeping it real!


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.



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.


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.



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.


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.

Based in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, Venus Wedding Photography are reportage wedding photographers covering Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and across the UK.
