Bethany Clarke.... what can I say... literally the best photographer in the world! Thank you so much for all our wonderful wedding photos. Everyone has commented on not only the fabulous pictures but also how lovely and professional you were. We honestly hardly knew the photos were happening. You made us all feel so relaxed and we could not be happier with the results. Thank-you! - Matt & Sarah xxMatt & Sarah – Yorkshire Dales & London
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 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.
