About Us

Barrie-HeadshotIt is essential that you gel with your wedding photographers – after all they will be a big part of your wedding day, so here is a little about us. We are Barrie and Bev Downie and we have been full time photographers specialising in wedding and portrait photography since 2005. Prior to this we were both working on the historic Goodwood Estate and so we have a background in the highest level of customer service.

We are married and we keep every aspect of the business in-house so there is just one point of contact for you at all times. The only external suppliers we use produce our amazing frames and wedding albums and we have selected these suppliers because their standards reflect our own. 

We love photographing weddings. Every one is different and we look forward to each and every one regardless of the location, weather or time of year. As long as our customers share our enthusiasm, that is all we need to give you a great set of wedding photographs!


Bev-HeadshotWe enjoy visiting other countries and have photographed weddings across Europe. If you are having an overseas wedding, we would love to hear from you! We were married in Venice so we know how exciting it is planning your day in a different country.

We are both Honorary Fellows of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and regularly judge international competitions and mentor other professional photographers as well as speaking at international photography conventions in the UK and Europe.

Away from photography we both love travelling and have been to many beautiful places together including road trips in America, cage diving with Great White Sharks in Mexico and Nascar Driving at the Las Vegas Speedway!

Barrie’s passion is for anything with an engine but particularly if it is fast with plenty of horsepower.  He has raced sports and saloon cars, run a race team and is a qualified race driving instructor. Bev prefers one horsepower and four legs as a qualified riding instructor and show jumping competitor for many years.

We are fun, friendly and professional. If this is what you are looking for in your wedding photographers, please do get in touch!
