Wedding Photography Training Day – The Basic Details


St. Pierre Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Chepstow.  NP16 6YA

Easily accessible from the M4 east and M4 west.

Nearest train station – Chepstow or Severn Tunnel Junction.  Both will require taxis to the venue.


Registration 10am – 10:30am

Workshop – 10:30am – 5pm

If the weather is kind and you are ok we can stay longer, more shooting, editing, business advice etc.  Sunset is around 7:30pm.

We will stop for drinks as and when required by delegates.


Wear appropriate clothing to the prevailing weather conditions.  We may be outside so please consider cold weather / sunny conditions.


Please bring all of your main camera equipment – bodies & lenses.  If you have external flash equipment bring that along and also triggers and lightstands as well.  Don’t forget to bring fully charged batteries, possibly two, as well as memory cards.   Don’t forget camera manuals!

An editing session is included so if you have a laptop please bring that also.

Dietary requirements

The venue can cater as and when for all dietary requirements

What it costs.

The whole day will cost £195 which includes drinks, meals etc.  If you wish to bring a second photographer along the price is £350 for the both of you.

Partners (husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends etc) are an important part of making a successful business as a photographer, even if they do nothing more than support you emotionally.  So as a result of that partners are welcome to join for the day’s workshop for £25 (to cover drinks & meals) provided they do not use a camera during the day!

Minimum numbers are 4 and the maximum number is 6 photographers.  I like to keep things small so EVERYONE gets a chance to get some real benefit from it and goes away not just being inspired but with real practical tips on starting a business or improving their business.

I can run 1-1 session for a surcharge of £75

Early Bird Discount

Book your date more than 5 weeks before the workshops date to get an Early Bird Discount of £50 per person.

You can book by paying the full amount or a booking fee of £50 to secure your place.  Any balance must be paid by the week before the training workshop.

Bookings are swappable with people and dates if you find you can not make the date you originally selected.  There is no limit on swapping dates.

Fees are non refundable in any event due to the costs involved in securing the model and venue
