Philip Bedford Wedding Photography | About


My name is Phil and I love taking photographs.

I’m a Sussex wedding photographer, covering neighbouring Surrey, Kent and London, and until recently I was based in Brighton. I now live as a wedding photographer in Crystal Palace, London, covering all wedding photographer needs across Sussex, Surrey & Kent. I love living in London, but I miss the countryside, and love shooting weddings across the South East of England.

I photograph weddings, families, babies, portraits, events and the occasional landscape. My family hails from Kent long ago, and I lived in Sussex for over 10 years, and we've now found a new life for ourselves working in London and Surrey. When I say we, I mean my wonderful wife Katie and her/our pet Gerbils. 

I’ve been photographing for over 14 years, from being a budding college student, going through Brighton University and getting my BA in Editorial Photography to being a freelance wedding photographer in Sussex. I also work as an event, portrait and commercial photographer for clients in London, Surrey, Kent and throughout the South East of England. As well as photographing weddings & events, I spend some of my time tutoring photography in evening classes at an Adult Education organisation called CALAT.

I love being a Sussex wedding photographer and running my own wedding photography business, and my favourite weddings are definitely marquee/festival weddings where we can use the Sussex/Surrey backdrop for wedding photography. I enjoy photographing weddings in Sussex & Surrey, but I'm happy to travel all over the UK and have been known to photograph destination weddings abroad in Europe too!

I also like relaxing on Sundays after doing a bit of wedding photography on the previous Saturday or climbing hills and walking in the countryside, landscape photography is a bit more of a hobby than it is a job. I also love cooking, vegetarian (and vegan) food, the British countryside (particularly rolling hills and the sea), real ale/beer and wine (Cotes du Rhone), Radio 2, Jeremy Vine (& Tim Vine!) history books, Scandinavian crime dramas, Game of Thrones (Books and TV), 70's/80’s funky music and a really good book.
