If you would like to know more, Alethea would be more than happy to show you her work – please get in touch.
When do we pay for our shoot?
Once you have confirmed your booking you pay a deposit. The remainder of the fee is paid on receipt of your album.
Can I have an engagement shoot?
It is a great idea to have an engagement shoot. Alethea normally meets you at your wedding venue. This is a lovely opportunity to stroll around the grounds of your venue and have a selection of relaxed shots taken. A fantastic way to get you both used to the camera!
What pictures do you normally take at a wedding?
A few weeks before the wedding, once all of the final details have been confirmed, Alethea will meet up with you to discuss the timings for the day. A plan is put together, detailing important people, timings and those must-have shots. As you will see from Aletheas style of photography, her images cover much more than this and she will constantly be looking for beautiful moments to capture throughout the day.
How long do you stay at the wedding?
Alethea usually starts with the bridal party getting ready and stays until the guests sit down for the wedding breakfast. However, if you would like Alethea to stay longer please discuss your requirements with her.
Who designs the albums?
All of the albums are carefully hand-designed by Alethea. The designs are always from scratch as, although this is a slower process than using pre-built templates, the design completely reflects the story of your day.
How long does it take to receive our album?
Aletheas usual process is to allow about 4-6 weeks to design and create your album.
Can friends or family order prints after I receive my album?
Once you have received your album, you will be provided with a password to your protected album on Aletheas website so that friends and family can see your pictures. It’s up to you to give them the password though!

“Alethea, we searched long and hard for a wedding photographer and just wanted to tell you how thrilled we are with the photos and the amazing job that you did for us. The results were more than we could have hoped for. From the first meeting, you were so lovely and after a conversation around style and content we were confident we were in good hands.
We were so impressed with the quality of the photos and we loved the way you used the natural light instead on relying on flash. Your informal approach put everyone at ease and was perfect for our country house wedding. You knew exactly how to get the children to smile and laugh and you caught us all at great angles without being intrusive.
We’ve had some incredible feedback from our loved ones, particularly as they know what a perfectionist I am, with some saying that they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. You captured the feelings and emotions of our day perfectly.
Our coffee table book has pride of place in our lounge and there is not a day that goes by when either one of us or family and friends are having a look through and all the wonderful moments come flooding back. We are so happy we took the decision to have you as our photographer and you were a pleasure to be with on the day. What more can we say but thank you.”

“Alethea was an absolutely wonderful addition to our perfect day. Not only did she understand exactly what our day meant to us, she captured each and every special moment in a way that we had not even thought possible. We felt totally at ease with Alethea, she was not at all intrusive, understanding our requirements and making us and all of our guests feel comfortable. Thank you so much for everything that you did for us Alethea, we will treasure our photos forever.
On a personal note, to have a female wedding photographer was an absolute dream. I just felt that you were ‘part of it’, the build up, the getting ready, everything! I loved that you were able to capture all of those moments, and I would not have had that had we chosen anyone else. And you even understood our families, and how complicated that can all be! “Julia & Gary , The Thurleston Hotel, Devon
“I could not recommend Alethea Simpson highly enough as the choice for your wedding photography. She captured the spirit of our day perfectly, blending in unobtrusively with our wedding guests and capturing moments we will treasure. The results are stunning and the difficult part is choosing which photos to frame, as there are so many to choose from.”
Georgina & Alistair, Tissington Hall, Derbyshire
