Wedding Photographer Devon Nick Williams

Hi, my name is Nick Williams, I live in Devon and I have been photographing weddings, portraits and events for over 18 years.  Photography has always been a passion of mine and I'm vary aware just how lucky I am to earn my living from what I love doing.  Over the last 18 years, I have built up a very successful wedding photography business in Bristol. Now a new chapter is about to begin with a move to Devon.  So many of my wedding clients come from across the country from Cornwall to London and the Midlands. Anything within two hours is now seen as local and further afield is also no problem as I very rarely charge for travel.  What is important is that you hire someone who is passionate about their trade.

Wedding at Rockbeare Manor, Exeter

This is a lovely moment at a wedding at Rockbeare Manor, near Exeter Devon. We had just finished photographing the bride and groom down by the wonderful farm gate overlooking a grassy meadow. As they walked back to the house with me I asked them to look towards each other and simply chat about the day. This often produces very natural wedding photo...

Two Bridges Hotel wedding, Devon

I love this Photograph taken at Two Bridges Hotel, on Dartmoor in the heart of Devon. It was taken last year in the summer on a very wet day. The bride and groom were desperate to have a wedding photograph on the bridge. I was only to happy to oblige and with a brave couple this is the end result. When it's wet and windy, It's so important to work...

Winter wedding on the stairs.

So far the winter weather in Devon has been good for my couples with mainly dry days, if a little cold. However when you photograph as many Devon Weddings as I do, at some point the luck is going to run out. In my 18 years as a wedding photographer and photographing over 1000 weddings I have never had a wedding ruined by the weather. This is the ca...

Winter Wedding

Another Winter wedding photograph by Devon wedding photographer Nick Williams. For this wedding photograph I wanted to capture the mood of the scene. As you can see it is taken in the grounds of a castle where the couple got married. I could have just set the camera to auto and taken the picture. It would look ok but I do not settle for Ok I want w...

Christmas Wedding

This photograph was taken at a wedding at Christmas 2018. The wedding was in December with the ceremony at 3pm. This meant that a lot of the photographs of the bride and groom were taken during the magical twilight. For this photograph I wanted the Christmas tree to be part of the photograph without becoming the main feature. To achieve this I pose...

Bridal bouquet

This next photograph is of the bride holding her bouquet. As I wanted to make the bouquet the main focal point I decided to crop at the neck line. To add additional interest to the image I included part of the beautiful wedding dress. This photograph was taken just before the wedding and to show this I placed the bride in front of the clock. So the...

A wet wedding

This photograph was taken on a very wet and windy day, which was taken in the hallway of a beautiful mansion house. I positioned myself up high on the staircase after posing the bride and groom. I wanted in this photograph for the bride and grooms face to be the main focal point. So to achieve this, I set a very wide aperture on the camera. This en...

Bride and Groom

At first glance this looks like a simple photograph of the bride and groom on their wedding day. An image, that anyone on the day, could have taken. Well there was a little more thought gone into this. Firstly I positioned the bride and groom in a spot where the light was coming from behind them. I also made sure none of their wonderful guests were...

Bride getting ready

Getting ready is such a fun part of any wedding. I often start my day with the bride, taking photographs of the preparations for the wedding. From the hair and make up to the cars and flowers it's all captured as memories of the wedding. For this image I hung the wedding dress up behind the bride to add some interests to the image. I then chose a w...

Wedding Photographers Devon

There is more than one way to photograph a couple at sunset. For this one I decided a silhouette would look great. I placed the bride and groom on the brow of the hill to get the full effect of the silhouette. I made sure they were placed in the middle of the trees on the left and right of the photograph. This way the bride and groom are nicely fra...
