Barnsley Wedding Photographer

I’ve been photographing weddings in Barnsley for over 6 years. Being a Barnsley wedding photographer has meant that I’ve learnt a lot about holding a wedding in Barnsley; including venues, local suppliers and ceremony arrangements.

I’ve put together a list of popular venues in the area with a summary of what they can offer. I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have such as which venues are great for outdoor weddings, which are suitable for a smaller wedding party and which have the best facilities for children. Please get in touch using the contact form if you would like more information on any of the Barnsley wedding venues.

My wedding blog is full of real weddings, highlighting my natural photography style at a variety of venues throughout Yorkshire. You can see my current wedding packages and more of my work on my wedding page.

  • We had Charlotte photograph our wedding in September 19. My husband and I aren’t ones to pose for photos, we don’t particularly like our photo being taken so we wanted someone fairly laid back like us, not regimented or bossy and someone that could take more natural photos than posey ones and Charlotte was perfect, she did an amazing job. We also didn’t want to spend hours having our photo taken on the day and missing out on time with our guests but still wanted to make sure we got some good photos on our own, we was worried what the photos on our own would turn out like not being that photogenic, but we was really happy when we saw them, all the photos were exactly what we wanted. Everything we discussed in our meeting before the wedding, Charlotte delivered 100%. She went above and beyond to make sure our day went smoothly, even helping me get into my dress before the ceremony. A lot of our guests commented on how good and lovely Charlotte was and how good she was with the little ones. We couldn’t have asked for anything more or anyone better for our day.

    Holly J.
  • Thankyou so much Charlotte for mine and adams wedding photos they are amazing! I would definitely recommend Charlotte to anyone who is wanting amazing photos for anything! She made us feel so relaxed on the day. We also had a pre wedding shoot aswell which was amazing as she showed us all the great spots to grab our forever photos. Thankyou so much!

    Keeley H.
  • Wonderful photographer who made us feel so comfortable and was lovely to have present when getting ready and throughout the day!

  • Charlotte is a great photographer. She did a wonderful job of capturing many beautiful images for our wedding. She was also extremely helpful throughout the whole process. From the pre-wedding run down and practice shoot right up until the last snap of the night. On the day Charlotte was efficient and friendly, she made the whole process of being photographed a pleasure. We felt Charlotte had the perfect balance of professionalism and casual confidence, exactly what we needed for our wedding. We highly recommend!

    Michael L.
  • We've just received our wedding photos memory stick and we are delighted with all of the photos. Charlotte has been super to deal with throughout and we would recommend her for any wedding.

    Dan C.
  • Charlotte was our wedding photographer in October this year and I could not recommend her enough.She is a fantastic person to work with and guided us through all the options and possibilities before hand but was completely comfortable to do what we wanted.On the day itself, Charlotte was an absolute star and was a joy to be around, making everyone feel comfortable which has resulted in some fantastic group and casual pictures.The images (received after only 6 weeks) are beautiful, poignant and funny. They will be treasured and we really could not have asked for more.

    Andrew H.
