about one thousand words
We are Tom Wishart and Murray Lambert, highly experienced Dorset wedding photographers working all over the UK and abroad.
We came to work together through a love of creativity and a shared passion for providing stunning, evocative documentary wedding photography in Dorset and Hampshire that is a notch above the ‘norm’.
We believe that a good wedding photograph is not only a moment captured forever. It should convey the beauty, emotion, the drama and the detail, standing alone as a piece of artwork or together as the beautiful story of your big day.
Our relaxed, instinctive, unobtrusive approach allows us to observe these beautiful moments as they are about to happen and capture them as they unfold.

“We would like to say a huge thank you for being absolutely amazing in the run up, during and after our wedding day. Also for capturing such brilliant wedding photographs and amazing memories.
We could not have asked for more from one thousand words and would highly recommend their services, they really did go above and beyond.
On our wedding day they were both absolutely amazing, friends and family commented on how great they were, fitting in like guests. They worked so well with other suppliers helping the day to run smoothly. They are discreet in their approach, fun, easy going and capture the day perfectly as it happens. They stayed well into the evening capturing fun shots of the dancing which is so great to have!
We are so happy with our photographs from one thousands words – we could not recommend them highly enough. They have been fantastic from first enquiry to receiving our final photos, thank you so much for everything!"
“It’s so difficult to summarise in a just a few lines how amazing one thousand words are. Tom and Murray were fantastic. They were always really responsive to any query we had, which completely put us at ease.
They felt more like guests than our wedding photographers from the moment they arrived to both the bridal and grooms party. They never felt intrusive with their cameras and blended in with the wedding party… even sewing a bridesmaid into her dress and helping with hair and my veil!
Our wedding guests thought Tom and Murray were guests! They capture your day without being intrusive or feeling like you have a camera in your face yet manage to capture all the special moments.
Everyone commented on how amazing our photographs are and in particular how the sneak peak photos added that personal touch. We didn’t feel like it was just another wedding they were working and they made us feel more like friends than customers. Thank you so much for everything, I highly recommend one thousand words photography to everyone.”
“I have no words to describe what you have done for me but I honestly cannot thank you both enough!!!!!
My wedding day was amazing and I felt so much more confident having you both there to guide me.
As you know the wedding photos were hugely important to me and after throwing a strop all those months ago because I wanted you guys, I can definitely say that the strop was worth it. You both kept me calm and assured, you made me laugh and giggle when I found myself getting overwhelmed and sometimes I wasn’t even aware you were photographing me.
You went above and beyond to make sure I got the shots of my dreams and I’m honestly like a kid at Christmas waiting to see them!
Thank you with all my heart for being the best photographers! You are both my heros!"
“We had seen Tom & Murray’s documentary wedding photography work for one of our friend’s wedding and knew we wanted them for our wedding.
Not only were they amazing people to be around on our wedding day, they took the most stunning collection of wedding photographs for us to treasure forever.
one thousand words were also a mine of useful wedding information prior to our big day and helped to recommend our wedding band and makeup artist when we were really struggling to find other recommended wedding suppliers.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to any friends getting married.
We are head over heels in love with our wedding photographs. Thank you so much. The photographs make me want to do it all again!"
“First of all Tom & Murray we cannot thank you enough, you have given us beautiful memories of our perfect day. Memories we now have always.
We got engaged and I knew exactly who I wanted as our wedding photographers. I admired their work & knew they were the photographers for us!
Leading up to our day they were amazing. When the day finally came I was blown away at how Tom made our morning! Such a lovely warming guy. Our day couldn’t have gone more smoothly with our amazing photographers. Our family & friends absolutely loved the energy & humour you both brought to the day. And then the photographs arrived. Well.. we were simply over the moon!!
We cannot recommend one thousand words wedding photography enough. Their work is stunning & we cannot thank them enough"
“As soon as we got engaged, we knew that we wanted one thousand words as our wedding photographers. They offer something so different and special that other photographers don't - first off all they make you feel so at ease on your wedding day that you don't have time to feel nervous, secondly they're very handy extra bridesmaids!
Tom and Murray were so kind and fun to work with and we can't rate them enough, having two of them meant that you had pictures from different angles.
Tom and Murray were considerate to us when we needed time to ourselves and whisked us away to the beach to have some time to ourselves and reflect on our day. They slotted into everything so well, especially when they arrived at my parents’ house and began photographing us.
I seriously can't recommend them enough, they were one of the best bits of our wedding day and our wedding photos were just incredible."
“From the offset, we were treated to a first class wedding photography service from Tom and Murray that was highly professional, making us feel extremely comfortable.
A huge amount of care and consideration went into establishing exactly what we wanted with contact offered as frequent as we required. All our requests were not only accommodated but massively welcomed, no matter how odd we thought these were. Nothing was too much trouble.
Our family and friends frequently described having both Tom and Murray around for the weekend as totally charming and appropriate. Many describing them as totally blending into the fabric of the wedding. They achieved again this perfect balance of professionalism with an all-important ability of making us and our guests feel at total ease around them.
They found ways to exceed our expectations. The photos are absolutely exceptional showing the life and soul of our wedding. They were huge fun and engaging to be with and we’ll cherish the memories they’ve helped us keep forever.”
“These guys are worth their weight in gold. Tom and Murray went above and beyond, not only to take stunning wedding photographs, but to make our day as smooth as possible.
We would liken Tom to batman with his utility belt. When a bit of my hair unravelled from jumping around- he noticed straight away, produced some bobby pins and fixed it for me, when some of the beads fell off one of my bridesmaid’s dresses- he had glue and stuck them back on, when a thread from my dress got stuck on something, he got out his multi-tool and untangled me.
Both Tom and Murray were so calm and professional, and made the day even more fun.
We have just got the photographs back and couldn’t love them any more!!"
