30 Years a Photographer

I want to know about you, but first…

Its good to know a little about me

My name is Giles Bracher, I am an English photographer with over 30 years of experience in the media industry, I have photograph destination weddings all over the world, right now I specialise in venues and specifically the wonderful dramatic locations of Southern Europe.

From an early age I learnt, through images, I am best able to communicate with the world. I was 14 when I first picked up a camera, I rapidly achieved a Photography “A” level before ever passing an “O” level in English or Maths!

I am now privileged to have photographed all over the world with clients including, Amir Khan (Boxer), Natalie Pinkham, (Television presenter), Sam Branson (son of Sir Richard Branson) and Hello Magazine, as well as many others not in the public eye.

I would be really excited to hear about your story and perhaps be your wedding photographer.

Please do drop me a line from the link below for a chat.

My Photographer Story

I will tell the truth, it wasn’t my burning ambition to be a wedding photographer. I fell in to shooting weddings professionally quite by accident.  I was on an extended holiday in Tarifa, Southern Spain doing what I love second, windsurfing. When my partner a wedding planner, asked me to shoot a small last minute wedding in Gibraltar, her regular photographer was already booked. After much protesting, I agreed and the rest as they say is history.

This unexpected and unplanned career change has sent me off around the world again, meeting wonderful and interesting people of all walks of life, Royalty, the rich and famous, couples, fun and exciting, families, loving and kind, It has been my great joy to tell their story with my photographs.

Since my first wedding shoot when I was 16, oh okay, I was one of the guests that took pictures, it was my cousins wedding they had a professional to shoot as well, but I understood then, that wedding photography like a good film is about telling a story.

It is that love of pictures and storytelling that has taken me on my journey as a photographer! I’ve studied photography, film and TV at college, followed by a career as an award winning film editor, working on documentaries and Natural History programmes for the BBC, Discovery and National Geographic Channel. One of the last broadcast jobs I did was with the Volvo Ocean Race, which is how I discovered the amazing light in Spain.

What Clients Say

wedding Photograher review

"you were so considerate"

“go for Giles, he is the best !”

“You have captured the day exactly”

Everything was great and in fact exceeded our expectations, photo session was very relaxing and quick and all pictures that we got are fantastic. We only had 2 hours of photo session but as a result we have hundreds of amazing pictures. I know some couples have hours of wedding photo session but they don't get that many really great pictures. Also not only us but all our guests have some amazing pictures as well. The best thing is that pictures are so colorful , full of light that i can feel the mood and atmosphere of the day.

Both of us are very grateful to Giles for the fantastic job he has done. Thanks to him we will keep happy memories of the wedding day.

Dear Giles,

I have been meaning to email you to say how wonderful the photos of Lamorna and Sarah’s wedding are , and you got them ready in record time.Our only problem is choosing which to print as they are so good, also there are so many! I’m usually very uncomfortable about having photos taken, but you were so considerate and efficient that I was hardly aware that photos were being taken. Now we have a lovely record of a most happy day, so thank you very much indeed.

With thanks and best wishes from

Dear Giles,

You have captured the day exactly as it was, so many lovely natural photos as well as the evening photos really do look fantastic! You made us and our guests feel so comfortable and we had so many comments on how great and efficient you were. And obviously our photos together on the beach it was all just MAGICAL…
