As a documentary wedding photographer, my approach is discreet and unobtrusive. I capture your day as it happens and everything that makes it unique as well as the moments you loved and the bits you may not have seen. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing over 200 weddings so far throughout the South West. I am a Wiltshire wedding photographer but also cover Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. Wiltshire wedding venues I have covered include The Pear Tree, Ashley Wood Farm and Grittleton House.

Emily & Alex
"We booked Judith for our September wedding and we're delighted with all the photos she took. They perfectly capture the day and Emily is particularly pleased with all the incredible photos of her and our dog Fig! I'm actually a professional photographer myself and I know many wedding photographers, Judith was my first choice. She's an outstanding photographer of course (and significantly better than most) but what really sets her apart is how comfortable she is to be around, and to be photographed by. That genuinely helped to make the day extra special, thanks so much Judith."
Jen & Matt
"Judith photographed our wedding in August 2019 and we couldn't have been happier with the results. Judith was professional, flexible and accommodating throughout the process, getting most of the details and timings organised in advance so that the day ran smoothly, with limited input required from us on the day. Highly recommend."
Heather & Rob
"We are so pleased with the photographs Judith took on our wedding day. They are natural, beautiful quality and perfectly capture the most precious moments of the day. Everyone at the wedding loved her style and how she flitted around, taking photos of everyone in action, rather than staged or posed. Each time we look at the pictures it takes us right back to that very moment; you can hear the laughter on people’s faces, feel the love and happiness. She captured genuine moments which we can relive again and again. We are so grateful for the photos and will treasure them always. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, in fact we already have to several people!"
Hana & Cam
"Judith photographed our wedding at The Barn at Berkeley in November 2018. She made the whole process very easy and relaxed, as neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera! At times we even forgot Judith was there as she was so discreet! She captured all of the important moments of the day in a natural way and we couldn't be happier with our photos! We would highly recommend Judith Parkyn Photography!"
Elaine & Tristan
"Judith is definitely the person to hire!! She was very friendly on our first phone call and offered a great service. On the day itself she was brilliant, took photos of everything we'd asked and more and to top it off, the photos are AMAZING!! As picky as we are, we asked if a number of them could be edited in post which Judith was only too happy to do and they came out brilliantly. Links to online albums and an amazing wooden box with prints and a memory stick were also provided. Massive Thank You to Judith. We will definitely be looking to book you for future events."
Holly & Barry
"From our initial contact with Judith right up until she provided us with the photos, she has been an absolute pleasure. I am a fan of natural photos as well as black and white and this is exactly what was delivered, capturing many things that we would otherwise had missed if we were only interested in portrait shots as she seamlessly wandered around capturing all the special moments. From the moment Judith arrived on the morning of the big day she went above and beyond and had a bum bag of goodies, including extra hair clips and pins for button holes! We can’t recommend Judith enough and should the need arise for a photographer at future events in our lives, we would not hesitate to call her up."
Lydia & Matt
"Judith photographed our intimate wedding at Clevedon Pier this summer and her photos were everything we hoped they would be. As well as her flawlessly composed portrait shots, Judith's skill really shows in her ability to capture beautifully observed small moments which would have passed unnoticed had she not been there... but don't just take this recommendation, look at her work, it clearly speaks for itself."
Kelsey & Andy
"Thank you so much for the most beautiful photos we could have imagined. You have exceeded any excitement we had and portrayed every emotion we could comprehend- the laughter, the tears, the love and every other emotion possible. We are in Medellin, Colombia having had a coffee and watching the photo slideshow - I only wish you could have been here to capture our pure delight in reminiscing over photos of the most wonderful day of our lives. Thank you thank you thank you."
Emma & Matt
"Can’t say enough about how happy we are with the photographs from our big day! I am so glad we found Judith, the way she works is exactly what we were after. You don’t know she is there, we see what she captured and we had no clue she was at the ready with her camera. A story of our day is what we have and reliving those memories is the best gift we received. Professional, friendly and an expert at what she does, putting you at ease and being a part of your day you didn’t know you had. Thank you so much Judith."
Faye & Nick
"We couldnt be happier with our pictures. On the day Judith was amazing and captured all of the best moments. We didn’t want too many posed and staged photos and Judith listened to us completely; our pictures are relaxed and natural and on the day she was extremely professional and made us feel at ease. Communicating with her before the wedding was easy and I always felt like everything was in hand. Thank you Judith!"
Jennie & Dan
"We couldn't wait, as soon as I got back we had to have a look at the photos... and they are absolutely AMAZING!! Better than we could have ever imagined, you really captured every moment of the day beautifully and also how much everyone (especially us!) enjoyed it. Thank you a million times over!"
