“Thanks again for your service and attentive nature at our wedding.

Our album is absolutely exquisite – and if needed reassurance, everyone who sees it says it’s the best they’ve seen. We can’t begin to thank you enough.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful album you have produced for Gavin and myself. It captures the day so well, and everyone we have shown it to so far, have been amazed at it’s originality and quality. It’s absolutely stunning, and I can’t stop looking at it! We are so pleased that we chose you and Hugh for our wedding photographers. We knew as soon as we met you, that you would fit in to our day so well. You may be more expensive than some of the other photographers we had looked at, but it’s about so much more than just taking photos on the day, and you are unmatched on quality and dedication. You were a friendly face to a stressed out bride, you knew just how to deal with all of the guests to get the best pictures, you made sure the day ran smoothly, and I didn’t worry about the time once during the day, which is unheard of for me! The only downside to collecting our album from you last week, was that Gavin and I drove away feeling like it was the end of a friendship rather than a business deal! When we consider getting some portrait photos in the future, you will be our first phone call.”  Gavin & Sarah – Blackbrook House, Belper, Derbyshire

“We feel like you are one of our friends instead of our photographer with the way you have treated us so nicely before, during and after the wedding I’m sure we wouldn’t have got such good service and friendship anywhere else.”  Paul & Janine – Aston Hall, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

From the Bride and Groom “Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job of taking our wedding photos on the 9th December. The photos are so amazing. It’s great to know that our special day has been captured – you were a real trooper and never seemed to lose your enthusiasm (even in the freezing cold).”  Groom’s Parents wrote and sadi: “Everyone who has seen the slide show on your website has been very impressed with your photographs of Alex and Louise’s wedding. We have so enjoyed reliving a wonderful day through your website with so many beautiful images. Congratulations on an excellent presentation and a job well done!”  Alex & Louise – Whirlow Brook Hall, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

“Just an email to let you know how pleased we are with the album, it really is superb and something really impressive to show off to our family and friends!!. The DVD slideshow you have done is really out of this world, it is truly brilliant. We had recently been wishing we had got a video of the day BUT now we have seen this, we are no longer bothered, it is better than any video!! Brilliant.”  Tom & Jessica – Hassop Hall, Bakewell, Derbyshire

From the bride parents, “Thank you so very much for everything you did at Aly & Hugh’s wedding and reception. It really meant a lot to both of us. The one’s we have seen look very original and we really can’t wait to see them all.”  Hugh & Alyson – Whitely Hall, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
