Wedding Photography 

Colin and Susy Varndell

We are passionate about our wedding photography and look at each wedding as an individual, unique event. We adopt a stylish and personalised approach, usually shooting weddings using two different camera systems and lenses ranging from wide angle to extreme telephoto in order to produce a variety of different effects and perspectives. Our aim is to be as unobtrusive as possible throughout the event, producing relaxed, natural photographs. Contact us through our website if you would like more information.

    Hi Sue,
    Netherbury Bus service is in chaos.
    Can we somehow let people know via this web site what is happening.
    It is a bit of a saga -there is a new timetable in the bus shelter but ,as yet, it is not very reliable.More details from harvey@wdi.co.uk

    Congratulations on producing this highly professional and informative website, and promoting local enterprises.

    Ref. Nick Harbron’s notes:

    The penultimate paragraph should be modified to read ‘… Windsor Castle and Christchurch Priory …’
