Hi, I'm Paul

Award Winning Documentary Wedding Photographers

We’re Carol and Paul. We capture weddings in a totally unobtrusive way, shooting silently and naturally, without asking anyone to move, smile or pose. For us, it’s all about natural moments, real laughs and smiles, not forced poses or anything unnecessarily set up. We do, of course, still shoot some group formals and love capturing beautiful portraits, but these are done in a laid back, relaxed way. We want our couples to be enjoying their wedding – not be taking part in a photo shoot.

Based in North East Hampshire, we cover weddings all over the South East and will travel further for the right clients – including destination weddings. Carol is the ex-Art Director of one of the UK’s biggest wedding magazines, while Paul is an ex-London fashion photographer. We bring a wealth of experience to any wedding and have been capturing weddings together for the last 9 years.

We’ve been a couple for 25 years and work seamlessly together to create stunning imagery that is unique to you as a couple and reflects your day, not just another wedding. We’d love to chat to you further about your wedding plans so do get in touch.

Our standard package is both of us shooting, however Paul is also available to shoot solo if your budget won’t stretch to two photographers.

How would you describe your style?

We are documentary wedding photographers covering all types of weddings, large or small. The most important factor for us is natural images, not posed. The only thing you should have to pose for on your wedding day is a few group shots and some couple portraits - everything else is 100% unposed. You'll barely even notice us taking your picture.

What do you love about weddings?

Creating amazing images from couples wedding days, capturing natural emotions, and creating something totally beyond our couples expectations is always fantastic for us. We are both creatives and our photography is our artistic release. Great images are about understanding light, composition and moment - and we use our years of experience to create magical memories. If you are getting married at the local registry office or a spectacular castle - it's a privileged position to be at each wedding we shoot and to get to know all our couples and their friends and family.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Consistency is key to finding any good wedding photographer. Look beyond one or two images that you like, ask to see some full weddings. The only way you can have any real idea of what you might receive from a wedding photographer is to do some research. Compare a few different weddings that they've shot. They might have different couples, different venues etc. but every single wedding a good photographer shoots should look like their work. If you were booking Picasso to paint your portrait, you'd expect to get a painting in the style of Picasso! It's the same with photographers. It's not about one or two 'wow' images, it's about creating a consistent set of images from the bridal prep right through to the first dance - at each and every wedding. That comes with experience and talent.

I cannot convey how happy we are with our photos.

It can be daunting hiring people to help with your wedding but I'm sure it will relieve you to hear that you can stop looking. This is the one. We hired Paul solo for our legal ceremony of us and 8 family. He guided us through what to expect and the day itself superbly. The photos have come through and they are stunning. We are incredibly happy with our choice and happily recommend Paul to anyone. Worth noting that the popularity means the photos can take a bit of time to come through but they're well worth the wait. He's so popular for a reason.

I cannot stop looking at our photos...

Since getting our photos back from Paul and Carol, we have not been able to stop looking at them. Words cannot describe how perfectly they captured our wedding day - from the vibrant colours in every photo to the emotions on everyone’s faces, every shot they took is simply stunning.

On the day, both Paul and Carol were polite, professional and amazing to work with. We really did forget that they were there! If you are looking for unobtrusive, yet highly professional wedding photographers I wholeheartedly recommend booking the Tansleys - you won’t be disappointed!

We cannot recommend Paul and Carol enough - the photos perfectly document our wedding day and hold every detail and emotion we could have hoped for to treasure the day forever.

Picking the right photographer to capture your wedding day is a daunting but exciting prospect. Making the decision to choose Paul and Carol (Tansley Photography) was the best decision we made for capturing our big day. From our initial enquiry to receiving our wedding gallery Paul and Carol were up front, honest, passionate, funny, professional, and most importantly authentic. We built a genuine connection over the course of planning our wedding and on the wedding day itself where we felt relaxed and comfortable in their presence. They made it easy to be photographed for an entire day with the knowledge that they were there to capture our day, not to shoot us performing for them. We knew what to expect from their years of experience and we had complete trust in them.

Our gallery documents the story of our wedding day perfectly, with every image evoking emotion that you can still feel long after the wedding day itself. With a real mix of images (portraits, to landscapes and shared moments between guests) and use of colour there is something for everyone and the gallery is a joy not only for the happy couple, but for family and all your guests to enjoy and take a memory from. This takes talent and barrels of creativity, which they have both been blessed with. If you are looking for a photographer who can deliver on capturing natural and stunning memories from your very special wedding day, we cannot recommend Paul and Carol enough.

Paul and Carol also recommended our florist, who then recommended our cake supplier and hair and beauty.

Incredible brilliant photographers

Out of the dozens of photographers we approached, we ended up choosing Paul & Carol as our photographer for our wedding in Summer 2022 and we couldn’t be happier with our choice.

They are very professional and clearly veterans in what they do, they also gave us advice from their experience for what to plan and expect during our big day. They were very open and communicable whenever we had any queries leading up to our big day.

During our wedding, they were so friendly and we loved their subtle approach in addition to their silent cameras, which made it feel as if they blended into the background. Their presence also made us feel very comfortable and neither our guests or ourselves ever felt that we needed to pose or look at the cameras.

When we received our photos, we were stunned by the quality and quantity of the pictures they took. Every photo was incredible, detailed and captured all the special moments, which brought us lots of happy memories looking back. Every photo clearly shows that they spent lots of time and care refining each picture to highlight the emotional moments of when the photo was captured.

We truly enjoyed their company and we would highly recommend Paul and Carol both as they work great as a team and they are definitely worth every penny to treasure those special moments of a wedding!

We can't recommend Paul and Carol highly enough - they were so fantastic, and their photos have blown us away.

We can't recommend Paul and Carol highly enough to all future wedding couples out there. The wedding day will be treasured for a lifetime, and one puts a great deal of trust into their photographers to capture it for ever. Paul and Carol's photographs not only beautifully tell the story of our day, but each photograph magically captures the joy and all the emotions shared from beginning to end. Paul and Carol set us completely at ease with a fantastic advance prep session, and throughout the wedding day they were unobtrusive, very professional and helped us all feel so relaxed and calm. We were so impressed at the research they had made in advance of our wedding ceremony venue and reception venue, and had made careful plans of how best to capture each moment. The final gallery has blown us away. We can't stop looking through our photos and we couldn't be more delighted. Thank you so much Paul and Carol!
