Couple shot in Botleys Mansion grounds

Bill Sykes Photography

How would you describe your working style?

Unobtrusive, quick, candid, fun, easy going, thorough on detail.


Do you shoot digitally or with film? Or both?

I used to shoot some film but now pure digital. I could offer film if required.


What type of equipment do you use?



Do you shoot in colour and black and white?

Yes I offer both – every image is captured is in RAW file which holds the maximum information for black & white conversions from colour as well as further colour enhancements in post production.

Do you include an engagement shoot?

An engagement shoot is optional for couples to choose if they wish.


How long after the wedding will the couple receive their proofs?

I aim to deliver the first disc within 4 weeks. However, it’s all about delivering quality not rushing to a deadline. If it takes a little longer, I will send samples.


How far in advance should couples book you?

This can vary according to dates. Popular summer dates 6 – 9 months in advance. But I do have gaps so always worth asking. Off season times have more availability generally, even short notice.


What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day?

With an initial enquiry for a quote – I need the date, venue, timings, size of wedding. I offer a meeting/phone chat. I show samples and hear what my couples prefer style wise, how their day will flow, album options etc. I talk again close to the date to run through and check final details.


What are you favourite trends?

I look at various trends and styles and then apply as my couples wish. I like the variety so I don’t have one favourite as such. I think the vintage trends have opened up more options colour wise which I like working with. I enjoy pleasing my clients with delivering what we discussed plus some surprises.
