Simon Gough Photography



Hi I'm Simon. Although a dull seventies name it is only part of who I am. I live with 3 gorgeous girls. 2 who have no option and 1 who was crazy enough to do it out of choice. I love spending time with them and doing all I can to make them laugh - which they still do and I am hanging on to that like crazy!


I have photographed almost 400 weddings and shot all around the UK, although mainly try to work close to home so that I can be close to my girls and not spend this time travelling. The first weddings were of close friends and now and again I get the pleasure of photographing people I know but I still love to watch the moments when a couple say 'I do' infront of their friends. It always make me think of my own wedding and I try not to forget that feeling.


I also photograph many other things including, Theatre, Music, Opera, Families, Babies, Buildings, Products, Companies and l also have a camera with me for every family occasion! I love the variety and diversity of my work and this is matched by getting to chat to people who I am shooting or working for.


Outside of work I would like to say that my hobbies include base jumping, surfing and looking after sick animals. That would be a lie. My interests are more serene and safe. Cricket, reading, cooking, DIY, gaming and visiting new places I also love grapefruit, a low sun, my big slippers and hanging out with my girls.


They keep me sane, give me great cuddles and make me laugh a lot! They are as much part of Simon Gough Photography as me - although they take fewer photos, do less editing but do agree to be photographed endlessly.


On your wedding day I do love photographing your dress, your shoes and all the beautiful stuff. But the biggest fun for me though is spending the day with smiling, happy people. Laughter is great. It makes for brilliant photographs. I even laugh myself sometimes.


On the day I am relaxed and informal although I think marriage itself is very serious and important but all the rest you can have a lot of fun with. If you do I promise you'll get wedding images that you will love. I also take a mean selfie and although Brides let me get on with what I do on the day - the one photo most of them want is the Instagram selfie!
