Like our photography, Humanist weddings are truly unique to the couple they celebrate.
Choosing a Humanist wedding offers you incredible flexibility. Many of our couples choose to complete the legalities the day before they greet their guests, leaving them the freedom to choose exactly where and how they want their wedding to be. With a humanist wedding you can be married outdoors in a forest, in your own back garden or literally anywhere you can imagine. And with a friend or Humanist celebrant leading the nuptials you can have a ceremony truly tailored to you, incoporating your journey as a couple into the most special day of your lives together.
That individuality and freedom of expression runs through the heart of our wedding photography and videography too. We don't look to force situations or recreate what's gone before, we always want to create something new and unique. To do that we embrace the spontaneity of the day, using our experience to ensure we're always in the right place but capturing not just the look but the feel of the occasion. Nothing posed, nothing staged, just real, authentic, individual imagery.

Relaxed, discrete wedding photography & video

Humanist weddings are typically less formal events - perfect for our natural, unposed style of photography & filming. Shooting in a documentary style, we don't ask our couples to pose for the camera, we don't interfere in events or ask you to repeat an action. Instead we immerse ourselves fully in the day, reading the people and situations around us to understand where we need to be and where hidden stories are likely to emerge. Photographing and filming Humanist weddings, it's important to us that our couples remain in the moment, not thinking about the camera. The more relaxed and lost in the moment you are, the more creative we can be with our compositions, capturing stories of love, fun and true friendship more powerful than we could possibly artificially create.

One in-sync family team of photographers & videographers

When you book York Place Studios you don't get just one respected photographer, you get two! Brother and sister team Liam & Dominique are both renowned multi-award winning photographers in their own right, but work together to ensure every moment of your wedding is documented to perfection. Joined by Alex & Matt (both also family members!) on the videography side, we work as a coordinated team (if booking both photo & film) to get the very best footage and photos of your humanist wedding celebrations.

Our wedding was truly intimate…just our families on one big vacation. And Dom and Liam felt like they were a part of the family throughout it all. The way in which they captured our day is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. No posing, perfectly imperfect….just as it happened. Each time we go through them we find little bits that we never noticed. They exceeded our expectations beyond what we can describe in words.
