Natural, Discrete & Creative

Norfolk Wedding Photography

Hello, I’m Simon Watson, a full-time professional Norfolk wedding photographer, and lifestyle photographer, based in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside in East Anglia.

Wedding photography is more than taking photographs of a wedding day, it is about capturing moments from your most special day, that will evoke memories to last a lifetime. From the giddy excitement and nerves whilst getting ready, through the Ceremony, the speeches and the first dance, all these moments are there to be cherished for generations to come.

My style of photography is natural and discrete, capturing relaxed images of people being themselves, telling the story of your wedding day. After all, your wedding day is exactly that, not just a photo shoot.

As you will see from my portfolio, the weddings I have had the pleasure of photographing, are filled with personality and emotion. If you like what you see, then you may just have found your wedding photographer. I would love to hear from you, and meet to show you more examples of my work and discuss your plans – exciting times!

Sometimes pictures present themselves to you immediately, but often looking a little deeper can reveal some incredible images. The secret is being in the right place, and the right time. Remaining an observer in the background is undoubtedly the key to great relaxed and natural pictures. I am assisted at each wedding by a second professional photographer, ensuring maximum coverage, ensuring an even wider variety of angles and viewpoints are captured.

Whilst I specialise in wedding and lifestyle photography, throughout the year I also undertake commercial projects, and editorial work, examples of which can also be found here on my website.

Thank you for your interest – I hope to have the opportunity of hearing your plans, and being the photographer you choose to capture your most precious moments.

My wife found Simon Watson photography online and it was by far the best decision we made. Simon and his partner on the day Andrew Blundred made us all feel at ease from start to finish with there relaxed approach. I'd forgotten they were there half of time allowing them to capture some amazing and natural photos. And when we had to be directed for group shots the laughs and smiles came so easily because of how fun and energetic they are! As for creativity, I didn't know so much of it was possible! Some absolutely brilliantly staged photos that will stay with my wife and myself a lifetime. I could not wait to see the photos and slideshow and I was not disappointed! The photos speak volumes on how talented and creative and natural they are! Being truly lovely genuine people is a bonus! The complete package! I've made two fantastic friends from the 1st time I met them. Everybody is raving about them! Couldn't be more proud of the photos!

Simon and Andy instantly made us feel very comfortable upon meeting them and during our pre shoot which is very important when it comes to taking great photos. Both worked very hard during our wedding day and it was like they weren't even there that's how good they are. The pictures are fantastic and I couldn't recommend them enough. Anyone looking for a wedding photographer couldn't go wrong with Simon he's fantastic.

We have nothing but praise and admiration for Simon and Andy. Their photography is both artistic but also poignant. They have managed to capture far more than I remember but also the bits of my wedding I was not part of to give me a better sense of everyones day. This despite my constant misgivings about having to spend so much time posing for photos. Their photos also tell the story of the day and the montage is one of the most touching things I have seen. They are warm, friendly and incredibly professional. They are now clearly well versed in what they do and I would thoroughly recommend them.

If you are reading this and considering Simon to be your wedding photographer - you need not look any further! Simon (and Andy) have very recently done the photos for our wedding and we could not have dreamed for better! They are both so professional with such a wonderful energy they make you and your guests feel so relaxed even if you hate having your photo taken (like me). His eye for detail is second to none and the pure artistry in what he does will just leave you speechless when you see your photos. Simon is not just any photographer, he will get to know you making the experience personal to you. We could not imagine anyone else being with us and capturing all those little intimate moments that fly past you while you're wrapped up in the excitement of getting married. I could go on! But in all seriousness you will not find a better photographer for your special day than Simon!

Me and Bel have just received our wedding photos and slide show from Simon and can I just say wow. You captured some wonderful moments and the side show is just beautiful. Thank you so much to you and Alex for doing such a great job. From the first time we meet you at the Dunston Hall wedding fair you made us feel comfortable and at ease. It really was like having a friend taking pictures of our special day and not just some one you had paid to do it. I ment to post this almost two years ago sorry it's so late Simon. But it means I can add to it as we had a lifestyle shoot with Simon on Saturday. He took some wounderful pictures of us and our 7 month old son. He captures some very cute expressionson on his face. we also received the pictures less then 48 hours after they were taken.Thank you again Simon.

There's no words to describe how incredible Simon is at doing the job he does, his work is very bespoke I feel, he comes to your office (If you're a business) very very relaxed, it automatically makes you feel relaxed and a little more open about your shoot. He started by taking some product photos to ease off any 'Photo build up pressure' I may be feeling and when its your turn to have to have your photo's taken you sort of forget that Simon is there with a camera, it's almost like you're just chatting and he then shows you a bunch of shots you didn't even realise he took, I said that on a number of occasions throughout the day.Not only that, but, he's an out of the box thinker and literally makes up creative shots on the spot, he can turn a standard amateur shot into something well out of this world, we need more people like Simon!If you run a business and use a camera phone for your photos, please just put it away and hire Simon! You will see the difference I promise you!EXCELLENT Commercial photos, Simon, you're the man!THANKS ******

We booked Simon for our wedding in Cromer with living over 300 miles away it was a risk we weren't going to be happy but I loved his pictures, read his reviews as you do, on the day we were not disappointed, he turned up on time, communicated well prior to wedding day and was an absolute dream when it came to the children on the morning prep stage, my little girl loved him and she is a difficult one to please!!Simon fitted in very well, made everyone feel at ease whilst he was snapping away, he was quick at presenting us with sneak peaks of our day and the pictures captured more than I could ask for we are incredibly grateful to Simon his work is brilliant has a real eye for detail absolutely made up... Thank you so so much X

We did a pre-shoot with Simon and Andy at Wells. The day was great fun and they really put us at ease with their photo magic. We have never looked so good on camera!On the day both Simon and Andy made us feel so relaxed. They captured some beautiful moments of our wedding day that we will treasure forever. They had a low-key approach throughout the day and we had many giggles. They have a great sense of humour. We look forward to the final photos of our wedding day. Thank you so much

There is not enough words I can use to explain our experience with Simon.From our very first shoot of our engagement, to our wedding, to the newborn shoot with my darling miracle and now her christening. Simon has been incredible, I honestly cannot thank this man enough. The warmth, the love, the passion, the caring nature, and extremely professional presence with the softness of his nature, and love of his work.He truly is the best, a complete stranger who we met at a wedding fair, now a huge part of our journey and forever will be. Thank you for everything Simon,The Houlston’s (all 3 of us) x

Simon Watson was absolutely fantastic! Not just in the day itself but every step of the way. We couldn't recommend him enough! Our family and friends loved him, and by the end of the day it was like we had additional guests rather than just someone we hired. Simon made everyone feel completely at ease which is not easy with how camera shy we are! Our pictures are fantastic and we will certainly be using him again in the future for family photos xx

The best decision we made was having Simon as our wedding photographer. Simon was amazing from the moment we booked him, nothing was too much. Himself and Andy put us both at ease through out our special day, we had such a great laugh and got such an incredible selection of photos from our special day.
