Rutland Wedding Photographer

Welcome to BGS Weddings – My name is Barney, and I am a wedding photographer based in Rutland. 

I take a natural, relaxed, approach to photographing a wedding, I always say to my couples that they should ‘do their thing’ and I’ll get some cool shots. I love working with couples from Rutland and throughout the UK who want ‘real’ images, no awkward posing or faffing around – natural wedding photography is best!

In 2019 I won Best Wedding Photographer (newcomer) at The Wedding Industry Awards, which I was super chuffed about, I was also named in the top 20 Documentary Photographers of the year 2019.

I pride myself on anticipating moments and being in the right place to photograph them; if this sounds like the sort of wedding photography you would like, then get in touch to discuss your plans.

No Posers!


Check out the highlights from an amazing year!

Do your own thing


Weddings are full of traditions, which is all well and good, but actually, it is you who is getting married. It should reflect you and your partner’s personalities.

If you want a huge wedding cake (yummy) then do that, if you want a big cheese platter instead (extra yummy!) then do that. Do the speeches first, do them last, don’t have a first dance, have your bridesmaid be your best man and walk you down the aisle.

The most important thing is that you love each other, exchange vows, and celebrate with your closest friends and family.

I want to document YOUR day, not the day you think you should have.

Barney put everyone at ease and took some amazing photos at our wedding. He naturally seems to know when to be visible and when to blend in with all the guests. This resulted in some amazing natural photos which captured the moment perfectly.
