Lloyd-Clarke is a seamless collaboration between two award winning photojournalist - Bethany Clarke & Matthew Lloyd

Our Style

Lloyd-Clarke Wedding Photography is the seamless team of Bethany Clarke & Matthew Lloyd. Having both enjoyed successful careers as photojournalist covering news, features and portraits around the globe we are now based in Yorkshire and specialise in Documentary Wedding Photography. We have been full time professional photographers shooting weddings for 10 years an enjoy being invited into your special day and having the creative freedom to capture elegant and timeless images that tell your personal story. We are sensitive and discreet, quietly observing your wedding to capture a spontaneous and relaxed record of your wedding day.

The majority of what we capture will be candid moments you’ll cherish forever, but we think its important to have some stylish portraiture too; we will take you aside for a few minutes and create some portraits of the two of you together, but it will be relaxed, spontaneous and quick so you can get back to your guests and enjoy your day. If requested, we can shoot some groups of special people in your life, as often parents & grandparents really like to have these.

Nobody likes hanging around and posing for ages so we will make it relaxed and quick so you can then enjoy the party. We both have an unobtrusive approach and blend into your day to be able to capture subtle interactions and tender moments that will transport you back to the day for years to come.

Many people these days claim to shoot in a “documentary” or “photojournalist” style, but if thats the kind of photography you want then make sure you book someone who has the genuine experience necessary to produce beautiful imagery whatever the situation.

Please enjoy the selection of images on this site and get in touch if you would like more information. We are a proud member of the Wedding Photojournalists Association (WPJA)

 Cassie & Jonny got married in Buckinghamshire with the reception at the lovely Chenies Manor House. 

"Bethany, We wanted to thank you for doing such a great job on the day. You were very professional and friendly and we would certainly recommend you to others and our photos are beautiful thank-you"
