For the past decade I’ve been travelling the UK, Europe and Worldwide to document Honest, Emotive and Energetic wedding stories.
My unique mix of extensive wedding experience, honest and thoughtful planning, youthful energy and a laidback family friend demeanour will enable me to capture your day focusing on documenting the true essence of your celebrations.
Simply put, if you’re planning a fun and relaxed wedding whereby your top priority is the enjoyment of time spent with your friends, family and the person you’ve chosen to spend your life with – then I suspect we’ve got a firm base on which to build a relationship…
Welcome, We’re Barney and Poppy
Hi! I’m Barney, and beside me is my gorgeous wife, Poppy. We’re childhood sweethearts and we finally married after 12 years together in 2019. We walked down the aisle together, as one – it was as simple as it was special.
During the summer I can also often be found in the Greater London area photographing weddings throughout the South East and airports that take me on an adventure beyond (usually to Portugal, France or Italy).
Poppy and I love travelling, Thai food, the sea, all animals (but mostly our rescued fur-friends Oscar and Octave), and pretty much anything that takes us outside on a sunny day.

Meet Our Couples
Barney was extremely easy to work with from start to finish. He was transparent, communicative, answered all of our many questions, and treated us like an engaged couple rather than a paycheck. Even all the way up until the wedding day, I always felt like Barney cared about us as a couple, cared about our relationship, and cared about our success in a way that a friend would.
We can't recommend the super-talented Barney Walters (and the fab Poppy!) strongly enough. From our initial contact with him, all the way to the final delivery of our amazing photos he has been an absolute dream to work with. Totally professional in delivering an excellent service, but also brilliant fun! (Our guests fell in love with him too!)
If you’re hesitating about whether or not to book Barney to capture your big day then don’t hesitate! Book him before someone else does! Barney photographed our wedding in Spain in June 2016 and we originally chose him for his style of photography but he genuinely offers so much more than that!
Barney was fantastic from the moment we met him. He was friendly, fun, he listened to us and his photographs are just beautiful. He went the extra mile, to the point where he somehow got hold of 50 lighters for our sparkler photo in the middle of the wedding as we'd lost the ones we bought!
WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOOWOWO! Ben and I are just so HAPPY! Your INCREDIBLE pictures have captured every part of our day that we could have wished for and we are overwhelmed by the feeling of wedding day joy and happiness again. Brings back so many lovely lovely LOVELY memories, which on a grey and rainy November Friday evening when Ben has been navy-ing a lot recently really does bring that warm fuzzy feeling and Cheshire Cat smiles on our faces out!
Just be yourselves...
…and we’ll help remind you for the decades to come just how much FUN you can have!
My CRAZY “job” is to be involved in your day, all day, to feel it, live it and become apart of it. I’ll be capturing your friends and family as they enjoy your celebration, not as an outsider, but as a fellow witness of your fun, your love – your story.
Later, Poppy and I will provide you with a collection of images that will remind you not just of all the visuals from your day but the emotions too.
I’d love to stay for the full day, 12 hours or more, but I also understand that some days are naturally shorter. Tell me your plans, and I’ll do my best to adapt to you and your vision.
As much as I’ll fall away into the background on the day – I’m happy to help with logistics and planning assistance in advance of your day too – I don’t want to keep my tips, tricks and years of experience bottled away – I’ll be happy to help inspire your perfect day – just ask away.
Click below to tell me some information about your plans, I’ll then send you some more details about me and I hope to be chatting about your wedding in a coffee shop, or above the clouds, sometime very soon!
Whenever possible, I'd love to meet with you both during the build up to your celebrations and if oceans or mountains are in the way - Zoom works pretty well too. ;-)
