The Biography of Peter Townend

As My Wedding Photographer?

Peter Townend

I am a full time professional photographer with over thirty years experience, twenty one years in a self employed position. Wedding and Commercial photography is where I gained my experience in the early days, then moving into the world of mail order photography working for most of the major catalogue companies over the years. With my studio in Bradford I chose to concentrate on this side of my career for over fifteen years whilst also working with other clients in the travel and sporting arena, before going full circle and moving back into wedding work seven years ago.

I now work freelance for other studios and direct clients on a seasonal basis as well as running my wedding business. All my weddings are photographed by myself and my brother Darryl, if a second photographer is included in the wedding package. My partner Rachel runs REB Creations which supplies Handmade Tiaras and jewellery for brides and bridesmaids making the service we supply, very much a family affair.

What Can We Offer You?

At Peter Townend Wedding Photography we aim to bring a fresh approach to how your wedding photographs are presented on the page. Over time styles change, and wedding albums are no different, so in keeping with those trends we have moved away from putting pictures behind mounts, with the exception of our Traditional album, to offering an alternative style with personalized pages and custom backgrounds as in our Montage or Storybook packages.

The photographs on the web site and in our sample albums show how we present your pictures, in a fresh alternative style to the Traditional method. You choose the presentation style you like best and have that tailored to your own wedding photographs.

A combination of complimentary styles throughout the album is very popular, from a simple clean looking background to something more stylized for the intimate shots of the bride and groom together.

When the pages are made up you will have the opportunity to preview them and make any changes prior to them going to print.

Our approach to taking your photographs is to capture a combination of relaxed, informal and posed shots, some of which you will not be aware of until you see the preview pictures. This can only be achieved successfully by having two photographers working together, one with the specific task to record the day's events in a spontaneous, candid style. We have male and female photographers which help put the nervous bride, and groom, at ease. We believe with two wedding photographers, and our attention to detail and the care we take in presenting your pictures in your album, this will give you many happy memories in the years to come.

Please contact us about our ongoing Special Offers that are linked to some of the wedding packages, you can contact me direct on the numbers here or through the link on the website.

Thank you
