Meet Jay Rowden, the photographer behind the camera!

Winner: London Wedding Photographer of the Year, 2016 & 2017

I am a London weddings photographer. I create modern, relaxed but above all natural London wedding photography for discerning clients all over. I promise faithfully not to bore you with how incredibly life changing married life can be and how much I love my amazing wife and kids. Then there’s my wedding photography. Paid to do something which I love. It doesn't get much better than that. This is why I became a professional photographer. For more than eight years, I have been taking photos and loving every minute.


Lovely couples hire me to create gorgeous award-winning photography in the most discreet, professional way imaginable. Every solitary natural moment of your day from dusk till dawn will be captured.

The bridal preparations with your bridesmaids and the fun as your girlfriends get their bridesmaids dresses on. The tears as the dress goes on. The laughter as you squeeze into the car! That first look at the altar from the groom. The hand-squeezing moment as the rings go on. The emotion of walking back down the aisle as a married couple. The twinkle in your Mum’s eye when your Dad makes his Father of the Bride speech. The beautiful portrait scene of the two of you as the sun sets. The first dance and crazy dance floor reception shots!

Every single image will be captured. For you. Group shots, confetti, first kiss, first dance, throwing the bouquet. I will be there to discreetly photograph every key moment. My photography has taken me to some fabulous wedding locations in London, throughout the UK and across Europe. If you are scouting locations for your own wedding, lots of these venues are listed along with photos on my blog.

Style and Service

If you care about wedding photography, you’re in safe hands. I am fortunate enough to be the wedding photographer that other photographers book to shoot their wedding. I am a wedding photographer who offers a sensitive, creative approach to wedding photography. You might like to know that the wedding photos are guaranteed to be delivered within three weeks of you tying the knot.

My style is often referred to as documentary style, which is another of way of saying storytelling in pictures. I like to tell a story of your big day as unobtrusively as possible. I blend into the background, working almost exclusively without a tripod or flash, using available light well into the evening reception. To capture precious moments means absolute discretion. A quick click of the shutter and I move on. When I am working in London or elsewhere, my style remains the same.

They say a picture tells a thousand words but a wedding album tells a complete story of your big day. My wedding albums are crafted by hand using the most elite album manufacturer in the world. All of my albums are made using the very finest museum quality paper. Your album will become a treasured reminder of your special day so it's important that you invest in the best. I am often asked if I take photos in colour. I always photograph in colour and convert around 20% of images to black and white after the wedding.


I am a huge fan of London weddings. London is a rare and precious place with a million fantastic locations to suit all tastes. The best memories will be created in awe-inspiring wedding locations across this beautiful city. Stunning memories captured of you as a couple in love on the most special day imaginable from a London wedding photographer. Whilst London is an incredible backdrop for so many great locations, I won't lie to you...I also love destination weddings. Foreign travel lights my fire! Though the bottom line is, wherever you have your wedding, it will be an unrepeatable day you will remember for the rest of your lives. If you are camera shy, this means the couples of shots of you will look authentic, natural and real. Natural posing and nothing forced, ever.

Best photographer ever!

As soon as we got engaged we knew who we wanted as our photographer. After seeing the incredible photos you took at two of our best friends weddings, there was no contest, it had to be you! Jay, you made us feel at ease from start to finish, always there when you needed to be. Having you as the photographer at our wedding felt like having an old friend there with us and we loved sharing our day with you.

Not only did we (and all our friends and family!) have such a great time with you on the day but now we have all of your amazing photos to look back on again and again. You're an artist with a camera Jay. The photos truly capture the feeling of the day, not just how it all looked. For anyone who is trying to choose their photographer, your search is over! Jay is without question the best photographer ever!! Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It's been a pleasure to get to know you over the last year. It was truly like having a great friend as our photographer. 

Your photos are wonderful. You captured the day perfectly and have allowed us to look back and relive the day again and again. Thanks again for everything! Best photographer EVER!!! Lots of love, Laura & Richie x
