About J S Coates Wedding Photography

Hey, I’m Jonathan and I’m a wedding photographer that genuinely loves the crazy world of weddings. My style is relaxed, natural and very much aimed at storytelling with a splash of EPIC portraits thrown in.

I’m interested in capturing all the emotions of the day. For me, it’s all about you and your guests and that what makes every wedding day unique…It’s about the belly laughs, the happy tears, the crazy dance floor moves, the little touches, the smiles, the party vibes and the love. I want all my pictures to show off what a wonderful and happy day your wedding is.

My work has been featured on numerous wedding blogs and I’ve been honoured to have been highly commended at the Wedding Industry Awards twice and also listed as one of Your Perfect Wedding Photographers Top 100 UK Wedding Photographer.


I want to give you the real story of your day. The interactions between you both and also your nearest and dearest is what I think is key to wedding photography.

95% of the day is capturing things in a natural documentary style and not worrying about the camera. I love to turn up the gears for some beautiful pictures of you both. We will keep this time short so you’re not away from your guests for long and make it as relaxed and fun as possible. This isn’t Vogue, it’s a wedding day and I want to capture you being yourself. No forced smiles, just you two sharing a moment.

I aim to be with you for as long as there are pictures to be taken. I arrive for the morning preparations and stay until late night dance floor craziness. There is no time limits and the package is simple. It’s just me capturing your complete story.

Making Memories

My images look bold, vibrant & full of life. All my couples get a Slideshow set to music (I want tears people!) and a complete gallery to download all their images from as standard.

"Jonathan was fantastic from the get-go very responsive to messages his whole professional manner, relaxed and funny personality put us at ease straight away. Jonathan captured all that we wanted and more images we hadn’t even thought of and every one of them was amazing. He fitted into our wedding day perfect everyone loved him. After the wedding we received a slide show to music telling our wedding story with images it was so beautiful I cried. 110% recommend him to everyone I know." - Staci Palmer

"AMAZING! AMAZING! AND AMAZING!.... I loved how mine and my husbands special day was captured. The photos were soooooooooo good we cannot thank Jonathan enough. We had a Scottish/ Indian wedding and the colour that the photos bring out is just stunning. We Loved them all" - Harmail Barnes
