UK wedding photo prices?
Mar 17, 2010

I am posting this here because I know a lot of the contributors to this 1D/5D forum shoot weddings. I have also had some helpful advice from you good folks over the last 4 years.

My brother in law is getting married near London in the summer and he tells me that he has received a quote for £5000 for a wedding photographer to take pictures of the day. Seems like a hell of a lot of money to me.

He originally asked me but i declined as i don't have the technical competence to do it. My interest lies in wildlife/landscape.

Is £5000 about par for the course?
