Peacock Obscura Derby Wedding Photographer » Creative Natural Unique wedding photography, creating beautiful wedding photographs Derby based wedding photographer

  • Hello there, welcome to my website. I’m Andy Pickard the chap behind Peacock Obscura and as the name suggests I like things just a little bit different.

Creative | Natural | Unique Wedding Photography

I love working in the moment to capture unique photographs, those magical fractions of a second that are precious and fleeting but when captured endure forever .

Wedding photography comes with lots of labels such as documentary, reportage or editorial; Peacock Obscura Photography specialises in beautifully creative, natural wedding photography making images of couples in love. I capture your whole day, from bridal preparations to the party after the first dance, I stay all day because it’s a privilege to be part of one of the most important days of your lives and I don’t want to miss any of it. I just love weddings, from traditional romantic white weddings to Stonehenge Pagan hand-fastings and fabulous steampunk weddings.

I’m a based in Derby in the Midlands,  Derby wedding photographers are perfectly situated to cover the whole of the UK, I also cover International destination weddings, making unique photographs, telling the story of your day with a combination of creative unposed candid photography and beautiful artistic portraits for you and your family to treasure for generations to come. If you want to chat further, ask questions or check my availability just click the contact button in the menu and start the conversation. I look forward to hearing from you.

Rave Reviews:


‘As the Father of Wendy may I thank you for the pictures you have taken of Wendy and Chris’s wedding. They capture the day wonderfully and they, like us, will be able to look back in years to come and be able to relive the day with clarity.
Personally I have found some of the pictures especially beautiful and like Chris and Wendy my wife and I will be able to look back on what we found to be a perfect day. Parents with only one daughter always from their youngest days, look forward to their daughters wedding as a special day and this day lived up to what we would have wished for all those years ago. Many thanks.” Robert Taylor
