Wedding Photography Courses

Please Note: This course is currently not running but we will be running them again in the near future. Thanks, Nick

Wedding Photography Courses for Beginners - Now we are firmly settled permanently in Weymouth, England, All Things Photography are offering an intensive 1 day wedding photography course for beginners. This includes accommodation if required.

The short wedding photographer courses held in Dorset, UK are aimed at photographers entering the exciting world of wedding photography for the first time. People looking for a little guidance, or for those just looking for a refresher course after time away from the wedding photography industry.

There are many unforeseen circumstances that rear their head during a wedding shoot which we will cover. This as well as many tips and advice on how to stay ahead of the game in this competitive but lucrative market.

Preparation is the key and doing this right will save you time and headaches on the big day itself. Plan the day with precision after consulting the couple and you are half way there. The next step is to ensure you get all the shots needed and then some!

Our short wedding photography courses cover all of this in great detail with relatively small classes (6-8 people) to ensure that each person is given time on a personal level.


The courses are held in a comfortable, family-owned Bed and Breakfast right on the Weymouth beach in Dorset. We have the run of the place as not to be interrupted. We can utilise the spacious living area for practice shooting, lighting set ups and slideshows to illustrate the finer details.

What is involved?

We don’t faff about using models the entire day on pre set-up, overly posed shoots that you will probably never do during a real wedding. We make the most of your time and get stuck into what really matters:

1 Day Wedding Photography Courses include:

  • Preparation for the wedding day
  • Shooting the wedding from start to finish and getting those important shots
  • Using local church and area for photography ideas and tips
  • Using the best camera settings for each situation
  • RAW v JPEG
  • Low light photography techniques
  • Shooting in the 4 seasons
  • Poses/reportage photography techniques
  • What to shoot other than the standard stuff
  • What to do in unexpected situations
  • Equipment needed for best results
  • Useful tips (clothing, accessories, attitude etc)
  • Some processing and Photoshop
  • Presentation of your work to the Client both before and after the wedding
  • Q & As

What do I need to bring?

Assuming that you own some kit already, we recommend that you bring your:

  • Camera
  • Speedlight
  • Memory cards
  • Fully charged batteries for the day

Course notes are given out on the day but bring a notebook too.

Wedding Photography Course Dates:

Not currently running

PLEASE NOTE: We may be holding more courses throughout the year so if you are interested, please get in touch or join our ATP Newsletter for updates. The lack of course dates is due to ATP starting to implement new sections and ideas to the website for which we wish to devote 100% of our time. For now, and if you are serious about starting out in wedding photography, why not check out our Wedding Photography Blueprint home study course.


The price for the day is just £195 £145 or £230 £175 including one nights accommodation the night before with good breakfast in the morning. We highly recommend this option in order to get to know each other over a drink or two before the course.

One-to-One Tuition – If we don’t have any courses available or you cannot make the ones we have scheduled, we can offer a one to one full training day. Here you will receive all the undivided attention as well as having the course structured to suit your individual needs. You will also receive the Wedding Photography Blueprint DVD’s (see below).

The cost for one-to one tuition is £395 (not including accommodation) and 2 days is just £595, the dates can be arranged to suit you but please book well in advance to ensure availability.

NEW: All course attendees will receive a FREE copy of the Wedding Photography Blueprint to take away as a refresher/home study course valued at £77.


If you are interested or have any questions, you can either email us or call us on 07518 359223 or 01305 458798.
