Nowadays for a few hundred pounds, you can create a very elegant website. Never forget that websites only show content that photographers WANT to see.
They will usually only see the best images they want to use to showcase their skills, so take a close look at the website. Look around and see how many different weddings you can see.
If there's only one or two, do you only shoot a few weddings? And how much information does the photographer give you? Are they upfront for your price or do you have to visit them to find out how much they cost?

Do they provide you with specific detailed information about their services?
Also, be careful when they say you are a member of a professional trading organization. Some commercial organizations only charge photographers an annual subscription fee to join and then allow photographers to use the organization's logo on their websites.
In fact, some organizations have absolutely no requirements to join, you don't even need a camera, and your grandmother, who has no photography knowledge, can join if she wants. Do your homework and double-check trade organizations as they are not created equal.
Some are for full-time professionals only and members are required to pass an assessment, review, and review of insurance documents, others only allow you to pay a nominal amount and certify you as a "professional photographer".
