Wedding Photography Reviews
Over the years I’ve been grateful to receive hundreds of positive reviews and kind words from my clients.
The feedback below is all unsolicited and the number of exclamation marks is as delivered.
“Thank you ever so much for these, you are the most talented photographer – I can’t believe we have our own version of galleries I’ve been looking at on your website for the last two years!
You’ve captured moments that we missed and we are so grateful for that.”
RAQUELLE & MARK – Peak Edge Hotel, Derbyshire
“We’re over the moon with the pics!!! They really capture the spirit, mood and emotion of the day.
On behalf of Nicola and myself, thank you so much for such a great piece of work!!!”
NICOLA & STUART – Pitmaston House, Worcester
“Just watched the slideshow and cried! Can’t tell you how you’ve so perfectly captured the day, they are everything we wanted and more, there’s not one shot that I wish we had or that’s missing you have made me so entirely speechless and I can’t thank you enough Mark.”
ALICE & MARTIN – Askham Hall, Cumbria
“I love them! They’re so good! I love all of them but especially the woods and then church ones before I got there as no guests got photos of those moments so they seem brand new!
Excitement has set in and I’ve had to hide away in my office at school to soak all the gallery in!”
CHARLOTTE & SEAN – Weddings in the Wood, Hampshire
“Thank you so much for the photos and the proof album. They are simply beautiful, such natural and candid shots. Exactly what we were after. We don’t know how we will choose only a few to print off!
Thank you also for all your help on the day you were brilliant from start to finish. Very calming and unobtrusive. We’d recommend you to other couples.”
ZOË & ASHLEY – Froyle Park, Hampshire
“We finally got a chance to look at the pictures last night… they are so beautiful, thank you so so much. You got some incredible ones of the day, and our friends and family!
Thank you so so much again. Can’t wait to show them to my family 🙂 ”
CLAIRE & ELLIOTT – Chelsea Small Hall & Petersham Nurseries, Surrey
“Thank you so so much for our beautiful wedding photos. The emotion you’ve captured throughout is so raw and brilliant and the photos tell the story of our day perfectly. We will be forever grateful you were available to photograph our special day. We are so happy with them and have already looked through them probably 5 times already! The slideshow has been wonderfully put together too.”
MELISSA & BILLY – Horsley Park, Surrey
“We love the slide show and all the photo’s look amazing 🙂 We’ve been transported back to our beautiful day by your photos. Looks amazing and such an amazing day. So great see all those memories. Such a wonderful time.”
MICHELLE & TREV – Town Hall Hotel & Leadenhall Market, London
“Photos are AMAZING!
We just want to say a massive thank you for everything. You’ve been a pleasure dealing with and we’re so so happy with the outcome.”
BETH & MARK – Pimhill Barn, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
“The pictures are fantastic! Thanks for your hard work, they really capture the day, and transport me right back to that time and place. I had high expectations, based on your previous work, but you’ve exceeded them comfortably!
Thanks so much!”
SARAH & TOM – The Olde Bell, Hurley, Berkshire
“The photos are just stunning, we couldn’t be happier with them. The day went so quickly that it was really special for us to be able to relive so many candid moments that you captured, and of course, many that we didn’t get to see on the day. I knew beforehand from your other galleries that we booked the right photographer and we’re both thrilled with the result. Thank you also for being so great with the guests on the day – we had several comments on how good you were (particularly with not making people feel uncomfortable with taking pictures!).”
JOSH & CHRIS – Great Fosters, Surrey
“We got the pack through on Friday. Beautifully presented too, I must say! Thank you so so much for all your work again. We really think your photos will be something to treasure forever, they’re utterly wonderful. Everyone else loves them as well. Couldn’t be happier.”
KAT & ROB – Islington Town Hall & Islington Metal Works, London
“Thank you so so much for our amazing pictures – we absolutely love them, and the timing worked out well as they were the best Christmas present we could have wished for! Thank you so much for taking such brilliant pictures and for being so lovely – you’ve had a lot of rave reviews!”
KATE & TOM – St. Etheldreda’s & The Tab Centre, London
“We’ve just watched the slideshow about 5 times and I’ve sobbed my heart out and screamed “I LOVE THAT ONE!!!!!!!!” for the duration of it. Wow… the photos are quite simply, stunning. Thank you.
Absolutely lost for words…. you are a seriously talented man!”
HANNAH & TOM – Lemore Manor, Herefordshire
“WE LOVE THEM! So happy with how they’ve turned out. Thank you a million times! Just makes me want to go straight back and do it all over again! Thank you for doing such a great job at making us feel comfortable around the camera. You really captured the true feel and emotions of the whole day. Can’t wait to share them with our guests. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
TERINA & TOM – Villa Bucciano, Tuscany, Italy
“We have now watched our slideshow almost eight times, and are still completely in awe of how beautifully you have captured our wedding day. Each shot shows us another side we may have missed on the day, and captures each of our guests characters perfectly! We absolutely love them. Thank you so much for all of your hard work – on the day and in production, and for making us feel so comfortable behind a camera (that we didn’t realise was there for most of the time)! We will continue to watch and enjoy our photos for many years to come, and we are just so grateful for what you have produced for us.
Thank you for doing what you do best.”
LIZZIE & LIAM – Narborough Hall Gardens, Norfolk
“Wow. WOW. WOW!!!
Thank you so much for these amazing pictures! They capture our day so well. They capture us so well. They capture our friends and family so well. Nick is in NYC at the moment exploring our new home town, so we had to do the first watch separately sadly, but these pics have made us feel a lot closer to each other. Awesome.
Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job! This is exactly the footage we wanted to prove the brilliance of the day.”
EVELIEN & NICK – Odstock, Wiltshire
“Thank you so much!!!!!! We have no words, it’s everything we’ve dreamed of, and more. You did an amazing job, we couldn’t be more happy. Thanks to you, today we felt the same way we felt 3 weeks ago, and we cried like babies (even if Ross doesn’t want to admit it). Thank you so much.”
ZAZIE & ROSS – Crear, Argyll, Scotland
“WOW! They’re WICKED! I’m sure you get these kind of emails after every wedding, but seriously – we absolutely love them. We’re so pleased you caught everything (and a fair bit we didn’t know about), it’s amazing that we didn’t notice you take most of the pics. True ninja! I know you must of had a long day to stay ’til the fireworks, we really appreciate that as the dancing ones are ace!”
HOLLY & RICH – Grinshill, Shropshire
“Thank you so much for the photos and slideshow – we both loved watching it this evening and laughed and cried our way through all the photos! You’ve captured the day so perfectly and it’s lovely to now have the pictures to match the memories. Both families are also absolutely over the moon with them.”
KATE & JON – Montpellier Chapter Hotel, Cheltenham
“Just a little note to thank you for the amazing pictures you took on our special day. We are delighted with them and have had so many comments, from family and friends, on how you captured the fun of the day.
We couldn’t be happier with the service and photos. They will always remain truly special to both of us. We wish you the very best for the future.”
LAURA & NEIL – Moreves Barn, Suffolk
“Mark – we can’t even begin to describe how happy we are with these photos! We will forever remember all these nice memories from the day and we are so extremely grateful and pleased you were a part of it. Thank you
We have just both looked through every one of the photos (twice!) and have loved talking about the events of the day.
We can’t thank you enough. We wish you all the success in the world.”
LAURA & SIMON – Mitton Hall, Lancashire
“Just wanted to say how great the photos are. We’re very pleased with them and how they’ve turned out. Thank you very much for capturing all the personalities so perfectly (actually quite amazing to see my grandparents with beaming smiles as opposed to the Victorian disposition they tend to adopt in photos!). I guess you also gauged how pleased Alice was by her reaction on Twitter.”
ALICE & MAX – Queens’ College, Cambridge
“I guess you wont be surprised, given your experience of me, but I have just genuinely sat through the eight minute slideshow completely overwhelmed with emotion. Your capturing of the love and joy is deeply moving and the pictures are as magical as the day was for me.
Given that it was such a very special day for the family, and the photos have been so eagerly awaited, it could easily have been an anti-climax but I’m on a lovely high now and cannot express how grateful I am to you.
You are probably told this all the time but I will treasure your work for the rest of my life and know that I will turn to the album whenever I need to glow inside.”
STEPHANIE & CHRIS – Bruisyard Hall, Suffolk
“Just a quick note to say we revcieved our USB stick in the post yesterday and are absolutely thrilled with all the pictures you took of our wedding day. We can’t thank you enough and are looking forward to getting them printed and up on our currently bare walls!!!
Thank you so much again for being part of our day and for doing an absolutely outstanding job!!”
ANNA & GLYNN – Exton Park, Rutland
“Mark, just wanted to say that the photos are simply amazing. The best wedding photos we’ve ever seen (and not only because it’s my wedding!). You’ve done a fantastic job and I couldn’t be more grateful for capturing our day so well. The photos are full of emotion, they are stylish and really fun. Wonderful! Ross’s mum said she cried when she watched them (cried because the so good were amazing rather than bad!). My mum said that she’s never seen anything like that in Lithuanian 🙂 She also noted that there quite a few ones of vodka :-)”
“I know the Bride has already been in touch with you to tell you how happy she is with our wedding photos (which is the most important thing of course!), but I also wanted to give you some feedback.
Both Milda and I both said that we really couldn’t remember seeing you on the day, in fact I only remember seeing you twice – once in the church and once during the reception drinks. During our honeymoon we said to each other “did you see Mark? I wonder if he took any photos?”! I guess that is testament to your style, and it’s amazing how you blended in while managing to capture the whole day.
I’m extremely impressed with all the photos – you captured the atmosphere of the day in a style that suited the occasion and somehow managed to ensure that all the most important people were the most prominent while everyone featured at least once. I particularly loved the evening photos of the dancing etc which are fantastic.
The way they are presented on the website is extremely professional and made it easy for us to distribute to friends and family without any need for adjustment . In the past I’ve often been sent a link to someone’s wedding photos and after clicking through the first few hundred of the bride and groom ‘pose’ shots give up!
So, thank you again for the professional service that you have provided, for leaving us with a record of our special day which will last a lifetime,
and for making my wife happy!”
MILDA & ROSS – New Place, Southampton
“We would like to thank you for your fantastic work. As expected we love the photos that you took at our wedding, but in addition we’ve been extremely impressed with your work ethics, your professional and calm attitude, and the way you’ve managed to quietly work in the background and yet still capture the spirit of the day. This is exactly what we had hoped for. And secretly I wish I was able to take such great photos 😉
We would not hesitate recommending you to our friends looking for a great photographer. Thanks a million.”
HELEN & OLIVER – Bodleian Library, Oxford
“We absolutely love the pictures, we’ve been looking and re-looking at them! They really bring back the atmosphere of the day, and we’ve had lots of people (even people who weren’t there) comment on how well they tell the tale of the day. They’re excellent and we can’t thank you enough. We’ve even had a few people say they want you to do family photos for them – I think you’re a hit!”
LAURA & LUKE – Brockholes, Lancashire
“We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for photographing our secret wedding day. You were a true professional and all round lovely guy and we knew from our first meeting you were the photographer for us! You were an absolute joy to have around on the day, you just faded into the background getting on with your job and were great banter on the occasions when we did speak!
The shots you took on our wedding day are absolutely priceless to us, particularly those of me and my dad (the first love of my life!), images that I will treasure forever.
We have had so many comments on how beautiful our pictures were and that is all thanks to you and your wonderful talent. I think a few recent newly-wed friends are kicking themselves that they didn’t book you! You captured moments that truly embody the spirit of our day and have given us memories to look back on when we’re older and greyer!
Thank you so much again Mark, we hope you are the busiest photographer in the land… you deserve to be!”
MICHELLE & STEVE – Crazy Bear, Oxfordshire
“What can I say… I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve looked through our wedding photos! You did exactly as we’d hoped (and knew) you would do and that was to capture our wedding day in the most stunning, eye-catching way! Friends who couldn’t make it to the wedding have since seen the photos and feel as if they were there!!
You are truly amazing and thank you for being part of what was quite simply, the most memorable day of our lives! And now, because of you, we have the most amazing visual memories which we can share with everyone we know, and turn to time and time again!! Thank you!”
EMMA & STEVE – Barnsley House, Gloucestershire
“We’ve been looking at the photos all weekend and can’t express enough how delighted we are with them. You have truly captured the best day of our lives in every sense. From all the decorations and details, to the beautiful garden, and of course all of our lovely guests. Everyone looks so happy and natural. Not a pose in sight – EXACTLY what we wanted. I was so sad on the morning after the wedding having to take all the decorations down and realising it was all over, but your pictures will keep the memories alive forever. Thank you.”
ALEX & SAM – Watford, Hertfordshire
“Just a quick note to say you did an unbelievably awesome job on our wedding photos. We’ve looked through them so many times already but we can’t get enough of them! One of our friends said yesterday that she wants to get married again just so she could have you as her photographer because she thinks our shots are ‘gob smackingly amazing!’ I think that just about sums up what we think about them too.”
JESS & SIMON – Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire
“We have been obsessively looking at the photos all weekend and absolutely love them! They are perfect and really do capture exactly what our day was about. All our friends have been sending us lovely messages as well saying how great the photos are and how it reminded them of the weekend – we’ve also been told that they made quite a few people cry again when they saw them! Everyone also looks so happy in them – it’s great as they’re not posing at all so they really were having a good time!!!
You were really fun to have around on the day too and you did just melt into the background as well – I have no idea how you managed to be in so many different places so quickly and without me noticing!!”
CLAIRE & KIRSTY – Maunsel House, Somerset
“Thanks so much for the link have been looking at them for hours already!
They are stunning, really capturing the fun/chaotic/quirky mood we felt was our day and are such an amazing reminder of this.
You were also an absolute joy to have/be around on the wedding day, being so chilled, fun and helpful (!) so thanks for this also.”
JESSICA & JUSTIN – Nonsuch Mansion, Surrey
“We’re not really sure where all of the time has gone but we are still meeting up with friends now who are talking about the amazing photo’s that you took for our wedding in October last year.
You really captured the feeling of the day perfectly. We had such an amazing time and when we look back at the photo’s it brings it all back straight away.
I don’t think either of us expected you to capture so many perfect moments from the day whilst also being the on-hand ‘wedding expert’! Some are personal, some are beautiful photo’s in their own right, but all of them exceeded our expectations. You have given us an amazing photo journal of our day that we will keep forever.
Thanks so much again.”
VANESSA & TOM – Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire
“Wow wow wow!! We totally love them!! Went through them all four times last night!! Thank you so much, they’re absolutely perfect. You’re a proper ninja, we didn’t see you at all!! The champagne ‘cheers’ shot at my parents’ – you were right there and I definitely didn’t realise!!
It’s voodoo… But you’ve caught the day exactly how I remember it – with everyone grinning from ear to ear (especially me!!) and the shots during the speeches are unreal! I’m trying to decide on my favourite but I just can’t choose!!!”
LOU & DAVE – Denton Hall, North Yorkshire
“We LOVE the photos! I’m sure everyone must say that to you – but we really do! They bring back such lovely memories of the day – yet have a real style to them too.
We were both so pleased that we chose you as our wedding photographer – your relaxed yet professional approach was just what we wanted. Thank you so much.”
LOIS & PETER – West Dean, Wiltshire
“Thanks very much for these – they are incredible. So good.”
“I’m sure Alex has already replied but just to say THANK YOU – the photos are absolutely incredible and have caused a few tears (happy ones) this weekend. We are blown away – thank you.”
NICOLA & ALEX – Haughley Park Barn, Suffolk
“I got your email quite late on Sunday night and woke Pete up to look at them!
I always feel a bit weird being on the other side of the camera so I’m really glad we asked you to take the photos, you’ve ‘told the story’ of the day really brilliantly and I’ve got some photos of our friends that we can really treasure. I love the ones of the kids running around, I’m so glad you got the ones of my nephew! The one of my brother and Pete, Pete’s mum and dad close up and my bridesmaid’s husband with the hat on are in my top three!
Ah I wish we could do it all again! We’ll just have to keep looking at the photos.”
CHERYL & PETE – Cripps Barn, Gloucestershire
“Thank you so much!! I’m supposed to be finishing off this report for work, and I’ve spent the last hour and a half just looking at photos!
These are so amazing. I knew I missed a lot of moments with so many things going on, but you have captured so many of them. It’s just fantastic. Kern just called me to say, ‘I never thought I would say this, but these photos are really good.’
I don’t know any other way to thank you, but seriously, thank you.”
MARY & KERN – Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Oxfordshire
“What can I say but we LOVE THE PHOTOS. Loads of great angles and new things that we haven’t seen before and the expressions on faces! Love that!
In the end we sat in silence looking at the photos as we ran out of words to say how much we liked them… We’d look through them all over again right now but I think it’s bedtime!
So, thank you so much for being a great photographer, very glad that we picked you, I think the guests were glad not to have to stand around ‘waiting’ for the usual posed photos too!”
REBECCA & TIM – Ingestre Hall, Staffordshire
“Phenomenal work Sir!! you truly captured the day. Everyone is blown away by the images. It’s like you had the script and instinctively knew the quirks of the characters. Fantastic.
Personally, I have to thank you again. I had no idea you were there, but you caught a very special moment which I’ll always cherish.”
SOPHIA & JAKE – High Road House, London
“I honestly can’t tell you how amazing the pics are – the weather was so bad but you have made everything look absolutely stunning – even the rain on the windows!! I had a tear in my last night at how amazingly you truly captured every detail of the day. By far the most funny pic for me was my mum handing me a sandwich – we were hysterical! I can’t say thank you enough times for our wedding photographs!
Absolutely stunning Mark, and I have to say you were a great influence of calm on the day – one memory sticks in my mind – you telling me to just sit down, that couldn’t have come at a better moment, just when all the bridesmaids were stressing me the hell out. Thank you for that.”
KATE & STEVE – Crear, Argyll, Scotland
“This is a quick note to thank you again for the wonderful photographs you’ve given us of our wedding day. We are chuffed to bits with them and so many people have now said ‘they’re the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen’. Hurrah. Even Steve, who hates looking at pictures of himself, is coming round to a few of them. Ha.
It was also lovely to have you around on the day – you’re a very nice guy and a true pro at what you do. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.”
HEIDI & STEVE – Town Hall Hotel, London
“We were just emailing to say a big thanks for all your hard work leading up to, and on, the day. You were very professional on the day, blending seamlessly in to the background when you needed to or having a chat when the time was right. My best man was calling you a commando photographer and when we see a few pictures from our friends we can see you stalking the next shot!
Goes without saying that you’ve captured all the day and the atmosphere in your shots and compared to the usual images where you feel you’re looking in, yours really feel like you’re sitting there and enjoying the day. So thanks very much for giving us something that will let us remember the day as it was!”
CLAIRE & JAMES – Lena, London
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for our amazing wedding photos. You were fantastic on the day and everyone thought you were so unobtrusive and helpful. Even though we hadn’t met, you put us at ease.
We knew that they would be good but they are better than we even imagined! I watch the DVD all the time and it really does tell the story of the day from beginning to end. We have had some lovely comments back from friends and family and the way they were presented was a lovely surprise.
We are so pleased that we booked you and would recommend you to anyone.”
VICKY & PHIL – Great John Street Hotel, Manchester
“Just wanted to say a big Thank You for making us feel so at ease on the day, I barely noticed you were there most of the time which was pretty amazing for me, but you were also a calming influence! We had such a wonderful weekend, from our point of view it couldn’t have gone any better and you were a big part of that – after being at a few weddings recently where the photographer has strongly featured in all the wrong ways you can appreciate what a difference to the day it can make! A family member who had a wedding a couple of months before even said ‘oh I wished we’d had him for our wedding’.”
HANNAH & WILL – Tonedale House, Somerset
“The photos are fabulous. You have captured many friends and family wonderfully – thank you. There is a picture of Lachlan that is set to become one of my favourite photos of him…
Once again I want to say thank you for all you have recorded. It was a joy to have you around on the day and I will whole heartedly recommended you to others. People have commented that they are some of the best photos they have seen. We have images that we will treasure forever.”
BETH & LACHLAN – Taynton, Gloucestershire
“All I can say is THANK YOU! The pictures are amazing! We’re so thrilled about all the wonderful moments you have managed to capture so beautifully. I know our parents will be especially pleased (my Dad will no doubt be in tears!).
I’m so excited, I’ve spent the whole morning absorbed in them when I really should be working! Thank you for managing to capture the spirit of the day, it was so important to us that everyone had fun and I have hardly seen a photo without laughing or smiling.
Thank you again Mark, you’re a real star!”
LAURA & NICK – Fonmon Castle, South Wales
“Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for the photographs, we absolutely love them. Everyone has said how amazing they are and how refreshing it was not to stand around for hours waiting for the photos to be taken!
I’ve already lost count of the number of times we’ve looked at them and loved the DVD slideshow that arrived today.
You were great to have around and for most of the day we didn’t even know you were there! Thanks again.”
LOUISE & NATHAN – Newton, Northamptonshire
“Oh wow – what a fabulous collection! Truly a magical journey through such a happy day – and so wonderful to watch everyone else enjoy it too! We’ve been looking at them for most of the evening now and agree that they were exactly what we had hoped for, and more. Thank you!!
I’m expecting quite a few proud parents to order prints given how super the children look, and we shall certainly be choosing our favourites to frame. We’ve both got square eyes now having been at the screen for so long (oooo, ahhh, aagghhh!, hehehe, wow! etc, you get the picture).
Again – thank you for reflecting all the joy and love and fun we shared on our wedding day, and capturing at all for us, for always.”
HANNAH & MATT – Cotswold House Hotel, Gloucestershire
“Thank you so much for your wonderful photographs that you took of our wedding day.
We have had so many compliments from our family and friends telling us how fantastic the photos look.
We are both so glad that we chose you to photograph our wedding day. They will give us many happy memories of our special day.
Thanks a million”
MEL & JAMES – Finchcocks, Kent
“We wanted to say a big thank you for taking fantastic photographs on our wedding day.
Everyone commented that they are very natural and beautiful. It is amazing that you captured unique expressions of us and our families, and we still can’t stop looking at them. Also you were perfect to be around because we didn’t feel any pressures and we could totally enjoy the moment.
We will definitely recommend you to our friends…!”
SHOKO & MICHAEL – Hampden House, Buckinghamshire
“I know that Russell has already said how happy we are with your photos of our wedding but they are so beautiful I thought I’d add a few more words. I knew they’d be good because I’d seen Katie’s. However, I was still absolutely amazed when I saw ours. You seem to have managed to take one of most of the guests at the wedding and when you see them all together they really do tell the story of the day.
I’ve never seen photos that match the quality of yours, and very rarely have I been given more than I thought I’d paid for, but you definitely have. Thank you so much.”
CARLY & RUSSELL – Loseley Park, Surrey
“Just a note to say thanks for the amazing photos. You managed to capture everyone looking exactly as they do, rather than smiling for the camera.
We have a fantastic record of the day and our friends and relatives all look happy, so that alone marks the day as a success. I would also like to thank you for all the support that you gave me before the ceremony. Your helpful suggestions to all the numerous questions made the morning really relaxed for me.
We went to a friend’s wedding last week where their photographer tapped me on the shoulder before taking a photo, which made me really appreciate your incognito approach.”
CAROLINE & JAMES – Kingston Country Courtyard, Dorset
“Thanks so much for sending the link and the files. We’re really happy with the photos, they’re stunning – there are some in the deck that you can look at for hours (my mum in particular has proved this!), and looking through them has meant we can really re-live the day.
We’re really grateful as we have lots of friends and family abroad that couldn’t make it, and you’ve translated the atmosphere of the day so perfectly for them too.”
SEETA & NATHAN – Village Underground, London
“This is just a quick email to say a MASSIVE thank you for the pictures. I am super fussy and they are wonderful!
We have obviously showed lots of people at work – where many think they are handy with a camera! – and they are astounded. In fact, they said they look like we are in a bridal photoshoot!
Thanks again – you are a star and I loved having you around on the day.”
KYLIE & BRADY – Stanford Hall, Loughborough
“You are offically BRILLIANT!!!
The photos are amazing and we are thrilled! The box arrived yesterday and I held back until I got home with Ron and we sat for ages looking at them! You have totallly grasped the day and feel of the day…”
SUSANNAH & RON – Longstowe Hall, Cambridgeshire
