Simon Murdoch | Photography | About

Simon Murdoch is an Oxford based professional wedding photographer shooting in an observational and story telling style. He is a recommended supplier to a number of venues including Heythrop Park, The Old Swan at Minster Lovell, Ardington House, Cotswold Lodge Hotel, Kingston Bagpuize House and Eastington Park.


He is available to photograph weddings nationwide and overseas.


With over 250 weddings shot, he has a wealth of experience and an exemplary reputation for providing clients with a first class service. His work is unique and he has created a niche for couples who wish to have the story of their day told through artistic, natural and thoughtfully taken still images.


"From the first meeting onwards," says Simon "I strive to produce a body of work which the clients will be delighted with for years to come. With the exception of any group shots required, the images are predominantly unstaged. Capturing emotion faithfully can only be done when people are unaware of your presence. I remain as unobtrusive as possible and use cameras with silent shutters. I never use flash, relying upon natural light."


He goes on, " I offer a complimentary engagement photoshoot for couples. This is very popular as it gives us a chance to work together, in advance of the wedding." These shoots are relaxed and informal and usually take place in the centre of the city of Oxford.

Couples receive all of the images taken on the day, not just the edits. They have the rights to all of the images as well. On the wedding day Simon edits a number of images to display on a slideshow for the wedding party and evening guests to enjoy. He is with you for 10 hours on the day so that your day will be caught in full.
