I never ask or expect clients to provide testimonials. After all, we have busy lives and time can be at a premium. However, I always appreciate it when they take the trouble to send their thanks and comments. Here I have included a few genuine testimonials some of my happy clients have sent to me after their day. As my wife and I sometimes (but not always) work together (my wife Michelle is an award winning Wedding and Family Celebrant), some of these testimonials were addressed to us both. I hope you find them useful.

Wedding Party at Play Golf in Colchester, Essex.
Kira & Lee decided to marry abroad with just a few close family members in attendance. On their return to the UK, they held a "Wedding Party" for their friends and extended family at Play Golf in Colchester. Even though it wasn't their official "wedding day', they still felt it important to have professionally taken photographs with which to remember their evening celebration.
Hope your well.
We have looked at the photos you have taken and absolutely love them, they all look amazing and canít wait to get them printed for our wedding album. You have done such a great job and hope you had as much fun as we did that evening.
Thank you again so much for being our photographer for our evening wedding reception.

Wedding at Maison Talbooth near Dedham in Essex.
The vast majority of weddings take place without anything major going wrong. However, just occasionally, things do go wrong in a spectacular fashion. Every photographer should get good feedback from their clients when everything has gone according to plan ( if they're not, they should change their occupation! ). But what about those rare occasions when something major happens which could completely ruin the day? That's when an experienced photographer who is able to stay calm, and exert a calming influence, really comes into their own.
Kim & Murray were unfortunate in that the weather really did do it's worst for them. The journey from their home to the venue normally took them 40 minutes. On their wedding day, thanks to the weather, it took over 4 hours! Here's what they said to me in their Thank You message:-
This email is long over due and I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you but since the wedding everything has been so busy.
We absolutely love the photos. They are such a great representation of the day and looking at the photos you would never guess how stressed we were in the beginning! We are very grateful to you for making all the photos available to us. So many people have asked for different ones and it would have been so hard to choose.
I also just wanted to thank you again for your patience and professionalism throughout the whole wedding, especially since you were not feeling well yourself and for helping us turn what could have been a very difficult situation into lovely memories.
Once again, many thanks,
Kim and Murray xx

Wedding at Moor Hall
"Kevin provided us with a friendly and professional service in the weeks leading up to the wedding and on the big day itself. He made us feel very much at ease, ensuring that our photographs looked relaxed not posed and captured our personalities in his pictures. Some of our favourite photos are the "off guard" moments that Kevin is so good at catching.
The quality of the photographs is outstanding, a truly stunning end result that totally exceeded our expectations. Coupled with the unprecedented service we have no hesitation at all in recommending Kevin for anyone's big day."

Wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn
Michelle conducted the ceremony for Cherie and Adrian whilst I was their photographer for their engagement shoot as well as their wedding day.
"Our wedding day was magical. It was tailored just for us. Me and my husband have completely different personalities, my husband cant be serious at ANY time. Michelle was amazing. She totally got us and after our first chat she had a pretty good idea of what sort of ceremony would suit us. My husband was so happy he knew that our day would be filled with fun and laughter and that ad-libbing was definitely acceptable.
Our guests laughed and laughed, they said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was both romantic and funny and they really felt they were taking part in our day, not just observing it.
Our day was truly incredible and even now we keep smiling and tearing up just thinking about it.
To add to our happiness we have amazing memories, photos taken by Kevin. He captured so many natural photos of ourselves and our guests. Such skill and expertise is shown in our photos. They are amazing.
We also loved having our engagement shoot with our dogs in the countryside, the pictures were so unique to us capturing both of our personalities. They are pictures that our family and friends will really enjoy looking at.
We are truly grateful to you both Michelle & Kevin for our perfect wedding day. Wish we could do it every year!
Love to you both. Cherie and Adrian"
