If you want to bring a bit of fun into your wedding, having a ‘retro wedding’ will do just that. A retro wedding is all about being fun and funky. It’s a great way to bring a little old mixed with the new into your wedding.
How did Peacock Obscura get started and how long has the business been going?
After moving to the Midlands to marry my wife Sally I decided to relaunch as a family company called Peacock Pix. We have been up and running as a team for 18months.
Had you always wanted to be a photographer? Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture and what it was of?
Photography has been one of my greatest loves since I was given a Box Brownie as a child of 8. My first photographs were of our pet dog, a collie called Bess. Many thousands of photographs down the road I still spend a great deal of my life looking for new angles and different ways to capture wonderful new images.
Which areas of the UK do you cover?
We cover a 50mile radius of Derby and Halifax in our inclusive packages and Nationwide on a 40p per mile mileage rate and accommodation if necessary basis.
What do you think sets Peacock Obscura apart from other wedding photographers?
My passion and my eye – I’m not saying others don’t have passion, but for me it’s more than just a job; I have a need to do the best I can and create a unique record for each couple. My wife says I suffer from OCD – Obsessive Camera Disorder. I create images for couples in love; great wedding photography tells stories, capturing the unique personality and intimate moments of a wedding. I focus on the relationships between people, capturing their expressions and emotions, often taking the picture without anyone knowing. I try to document every key moment, from the preparation through to the first dance. I believe every couple has a vision of what they want their wedding day to look like and I believe my job is to realise that vision.
