Alchemy Photography is based in Cornwall and is a very experienced wedding photographer with over 350 weddings to date
My approach is relaxed and I produce contemporary wedding images while documenting all the important moments of the day. Depending on your requirements, I can follow a formal or more informal approach, although most people usually want a combination of the two: most of the traditional photos and a casual documentation of the day. I try to make group shots as informal as I can if you would like to see some of the ways we can have fun with these have a look at my group shots page here. I will include images that the Bride and Groom don't usually see, guests arriving at the venue and candid portraits just to complete the coverage of the day.

We used David & Christine for our wedding who were absolutely amazing. On the lead up to our special day and during the day, they remained professional, friendly and approachable. They have an obvious love and passion for their work which clearly showed through their creative skills and talent. With these skills they worked alongside us to plan and organise what photos we wanted and imagined, giving us lots of useful hints, tips and ideas when required. With changeable and unpredictable weather they were extremely flexible and spontaneous helping us smoothly rearrange our day to get all the photos we wanted plus more. Their final photos were better than we could have ever of imagined, all of high quality and showing a huge variation of photo styles. We thoroughly enjoyed having them part of our special day. Despite being 2 people who don't like having our photo taken we felt at ease throughout and shared many happy, funny and emotional memories with them both, I would highly recommend them to everyone.

We used alchemy for our wedding in May, not being from Cornwall we didn’t know who to use and come across their website and loved the natural pictures they had taken. We received our pictures the other day and know we made the right choice. Our pictures are absolutely stunning. They captured things I hadn’t even noticed on the day. The most amazing thing was they captured the kids playing having fun naturally. The only downside is we have to try and decide which pictures to have on a canvas and in our book as there are so many amazing pictures to choose from. Thank you so much xx More...
Can't recommend David & Christine enough. Friendly, very easy to work with - I hate having my photo taken but they put us at ease and the photo's are AMAZING!
Absolutely amazing people to work with and the photos are out of this world!!! You don’t Evan notice them around you so fantastic for people who hate having their photos took!! Could not recommend enough
Amazing photographers! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better!!
Alchemy captured some really magical moments of our wedding that we'll cherish forever. Beautiful pictures, thanks x
Lovely couple who took some fantastic pictures of our wedding at Trevenna Barns in August. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Had my wedding captured by the nicest photographers I have met. So at the Bodmin registry and then over to port William for group shots and a sunset shot. Loved every moment very kind helpful and good photographers. Know exactly what shot they want and how to get it at the same time as keeping everyone involved relaxed. More...
David and Christine were absolutely fantastic from day one when we booked them for our wedding so laid back which we wanted, informative & the photos that have taken of our wedding day are stunning !
Even though the weather wasn't on our side we got every single picture we wanted.
Thank you so much for everything we would highly recommend X More...
As we live in the West Midlands, but we getting married at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, choosing our photographer was always going to be a bit of a punt in the dark.
After doing some research online, I came across the Alchemy website and loved what I saw. The landscape shots were stunning and the candid photos they were able to capture of guests showed that they had a laid back and relaxed style which put people at their ease.
We were planning a James Bond style theme for our wedding and David and Christine's enthusiasm for doing some themed photographs for us was fantastic, they were as excited about these as we were.
On the big day David and Christine were in Falmouth for us bright and early to get photographs of the preparations and were with us all day into the evening so it was a long day for them but they never appeared to tire of us or seemed like they wanted to rush off.
All our guests have told us how impressed they were with how professional David and Christine were and that they were so at ease with their presence that they forgot they were there some of the time, which allowed for some great candid shots from the day. This is exactly what we wanted.
The James Bond style shots they did for us blew us away when we received the discs after returning from honeymoon. They clearly took this project to heart and had worked hard in taking the photographs and in the editing to bring our ideas to life. We can't thank them enough for giving us truly unique memories from our special day.
I would recommend David and Christine to anyone in a heartbeat.

A big thank you to David for capturing and producing such beautiful photos of our wedding. It was wonderful to have them available upon return of our honeymoon and relive the day through them.
We used Alchemy photography for our wedding in Newquay. Both photographers arrived on time and listened carefully to what we wanted. They took so many amazing photos that really captured the spirit of the day and I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married in cornwall/Devon. More...

Thankyou so much for the amazing photos of our special day! I am so pleased with every single one capturing every moment. Very professional and made us feel at ease. Would highly recommend.
A huge thank you David for producing such stunning photos for us, both at Boho & at Sennen Beach. You captured the relaxed feeling we wanted perfectly and made two people who hate having their photo taken feel very at ease. We would highly recommend using Alchemy, from the first meeting to the disc being delivered was stress free & friendly. More...
I hired David and Christine to take some photo's of a proposal on Harlyn Bay. They couldn't have been more helpful and the photo's they have given us are incredible! We're eternally grateful and would recommend them to anyone! Thanks both!! Ben More...
We are absolutely delighted with our wedding pictures. They are truly something else! We knew from the minute we seen David's previous work that he is one amazing photographer but even that couldn't have prepared us for the outstanding photographs that both he and his lovely wife Christine took of our day. Our photographs became more important to us the week before our Wedding as my Mum was rushed into hospital and therefore, sadly, both neither my Mum or Dad could make the trip to Cornwall. David and Christine captured every second moment it seems and every detail perfectly. Our beautiful pictures tell a story and my parents after seeing them, feel as if they were there with us. Christine and David are just lovely and we truly can't thank them enough. We would like to wish this great team both all of the success and happiness both personally and professionally. We are so glad they were part of our day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Andy & Jenny Jackson xxx More...
Thanks so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Michael and Katy
