The Oak Barn Frame Farm, Kent.



Hi, I am a Pele. A documentary wedding photographer from Abbots Langley, Hertfordshire, Den Helder is where my mother was born in Holland, hence the company name. I work predominantly across London, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and the Home Counties

“We absolutely love the photos Pele took of the day and we’re so pleased with our photographer choice!”

When photographing a wedding, I do this in a relaxed and unobtrusive way in a documentary shooting style, that tells your story as the day unfolds. I am not a wallflower photograhper that stands back with a long lens. Weddings are about the couple, the atmosphere and it’s about your family and friends. Your photographer needs to be part of it, in the mix getting the shots, interacting with the activities and being part of making your day special. Thats where I believe the natural looking images and those great moments come from. 

“All our guests spoke of his friendliness and approachability.”

As a published photographer of some years before I added weddings to my portfolio, I have plenty of experience of making people feel relaxed in front of the camera and an eye for a shot. Although I predominantly use natural light, I am always ready, for those special moments and venues where conditions are perfect for doing something a bit special that sets your pictures apart whether its using natural light or flash systems.

I love the mingling with the guests, grabbing great shots of the laughter, the fun and the emotion, and of course, getting into the middle of that dance floor action and getting shots of you and your guests busting some great moves! 

Getting great shots in a wonderful setting, really makes the most of your big day and thats what we want.  After all… you are the star attraction!

“Book Pele for your day before someone else does!” 

A wedding couple are embracing and sharing a kiss on a tree-lined path in a forest at Crown Lodge, Kent. The groom wears a brown suit, while the bride is in a white, flowing wedding dress. Sunlight filters through the green foliage, creating a romantic, dreamy atmosphere.
A bride and groom, both smiling, walking through confetti. The groom, who has a beard, is holding a small tan Cairn terrier. The bride carries a bouquet with blue and white flowers. Guests around them are throwing white confetti, and some are also smiling and clapping.
A bride in a white dress energetically dances at her wedding reception at milling barn, hertfordshire, lifting her dress slightly. People around her are dancing, smiling, and holding hands. In the background, a man plays the guitar, adding to the lively atmosphere. Black and white image.

A true professional and we are thrilled with the photos.

We booked Pele for our wedding and were so happy we did. He is so attentive and well organised, dealing with every request efficiently. We also had a beautiful engagement photoshoot which really helped us feel at ease for the big day. Pele is such a friendly guy and made everyone feel at ease. We had several meetings about how to capture our big day and he suggested a variety of angle/poses that would create a magical moment, so when the day came we knew what we were doing. His expertise made us feel relaxed and calm throughout the whole process. A true professional and we are thrilled with the photos, they really capture the joy and magic of the day.

“Look no further than Pele!”

Spoke to Pele on the phone who responded to our email request quickly. after a ten minute chat, we knew Pele would be good for our day. On the day, it was pouring but Pele still managed to get great shots, wasn’t intrusive, super polite and he has captured our day perfectly. I would highly recommend and we cant thank him enough.
