Hertfordshire, UK and Mallorca wedding photographer

 Timeless, natural and creative documentary wedding photography

My passion is to tell your story with images that capture the emotion, happiness and fun of your wedding day in a relaxed and unobtrusive way




I love to photograph people and I especially love to photograph weddings – there’s nothing quite like it.  I can’t help but get caught up in the excitement, the emotion, and the happiness and significance of the day.  I can’t think of a better place to do a day’s ‘work’, surrounded by happy people sharing so many memorable and intimate moments together.

Although I’m a Hertfordshire-based wedding photographer living in Rickmansworth I am happy to photograph weddings in Berkshire, Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and further afield in the UK.  Distance isn’t really a barrier.  Over the last few years I have been privileged to photograph some amazing weddings on the beautiful island of Mallorca so if you are looking for a Mallorca wedding photographer then I’d love to hear from you!

There is so much to planning a wedding from choosing the wedding dress for you and the bridesmaids, the venue, the flowers and so many other things that are special to you.  Even deciding which friends and family to invite to share your wedding day can be difficult as you work within your budget.  As a wedding photographer you would also expect me to also stress the importance of finding the right photographer, for you!  Yes, that’s true.  My advice is to take the time to find a wedding photographer who you will enjoy having around for the day, who will deliver the quality and style of photography that you love, who will blend in to your wedding party and be friendly with your guests and who you can trust to deliver the quality and consistency of photography.  Most importantly, find a wedding photographer who will make you smile, feel emotional and maybe make you cry when you first look at your wedding photos, and when you reminisce in ten years time!

My style as a documentary wedding photographer is to work in a friendly and unobtrusive way but with passion and creativity to ensure I do everything I can to produce a timeless story that you and future generations will treasure.  I would love to be considered as your documentary wedding photographer to capture your special and unrepeatable moments – the glances, the touches, the happiness, the fun and the smiles you share, and maybe even the occasional tear!

If you like what you see, or just want to know more, then just drop me a line using the contact form and I’ll get right back to you and send you my latest wedding photography brochure to browse through.  In the meantime, you may find some of the answers to your queries amongst the Frequently Asked Questions and Pricing pages.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Hanbury Manor wedding by Hertfordshire wedding photographer Graham Warrellow


Surprisingly, as a Hertfordshire wedding photographer this was my first time shooting a wedding at the beautiful Garden Court at Hanbury Manor near Ware.  It was an unforgettable experience – Simone and Chris had known one another for many years and were so kind and loving to one another.  Their friends and family were clearly filled with such happiness and emotion on this special day.  The recent loss of Chris’ much loved dad Les just added to the sentiment.  It was very moving to hear that Les’ wedding ring was used to make Simone and Chris’ own wedding rings.  I think that’s a beautiful idea.

Simone and her bridesmaids spent a relaxed morning getting ready in one of the beautiful rooms in the main house of Hanbury Manor and were eventually driven to the conservatory in the Garden Court in a golf buggy where Chris and his son Nick anxiously waited for the bridal party’s arrival.  As a wedding photographer you can’t but get caught up in the moment and I’m sure my viewfinder went a little misty on a few occasions during the wedding ceremony!

As it turns out, this wasn’t the only time.  The speeches were all emotionally charged and the love between Chris and Simone was blindingly obvious.  But it was Nick’s speech which finally finished everyone off.  I’ve listened to quite a few best man speeches in my time but this was probably one of the most beautifully composed and eloquently presented from the heart that I have ever heard.  I doubt if there was a dry eye in the room.  It was so fitting that he was eventually mobbed by all around him and I have no doubt that Simone and Chris must have been filled with pride.  On top of that, their mothers, Yvette and Jan, were bursting with happiness throughout the day and from the moments they spent together you could see the close bond that there was between the families.

This is one wedding that I will always remember and it was such a privilege to be chosen as Simone and Chris’ Hertfordshire wedding photographer.  I wish them a long and happy life together!

    Simone Draper - Now that we’ve had a chance to look at our photographs and the beautiful slideshow properly, I wanted to write to say that since we first met you Graham, we felt that our special occasion was in safe hands. Chris has never been
    keen on having his photograph taken but you soon put him at ease and we both felt so relaxed during our engagement shoot and that is evident in the results. We really enjoyed having you both there on the day of our wedding, from getting ready in the morning until we hit the dancefloor
    in the evening, everything felt very natural.
    We are thrilled with our photographs and the slide show which had not only Chris and I but our friends and family
    in tears again!!!
    Thanks again Graham for being part of and recording so well our amazing Day. Love Simone and Chris xxReplyCancel
