Thank you so so much

Hi Phil,


Thank you so so much for everything. We had the most amazing day and you really guided us on the photography - we felt able to relax and leave it in your capable hands!


Best wishes,


Beth and Bish

So so happy

Thank you Phil, the photos are amazing... So so happy, reliving the whole thing again :-D

Incredible Photographer

Philip is an incredible photographer. His relaxed style really made us at ease throughout the wedding and the photos looked excellent. He has an incredible eye and attention to detail, and yet managed to blend seamlessly into the background. It was particularly striking how he dealt with kids who didn't want their photograph taken and had some great tricks up his sleeve. We can't recommend him enough - thanks Philip


Thank you so much for being so amazing at our wedding!! You were excellent with Evie and very diplomatic with the mums! You were a real hit!!

We both want to thank you so much for everything you have done for us from the very first meeting we knew you were the man for us and you have exceeded all our desires!! You were brilliant on the day (and my niece still talks about you!!) and have given us momentos which help us remember our day forever. We look forward to sharing these pics with our children and grandchildren! We wish you every success in the future and hope you continue to make people’s special days even more perfect!!

Cannot thank you enough!

You are the best!!

Highly Recommend

When we first met Phil and looked at his portfolio it was evident that he has a fresh approach and sought to capture the essence of a special occasion. His professionalism and personal touch sealed the deal! We couldn't have been happier that we chose Phil as our wedding photographer. In addition to more traditional photos, he also took some quirkier ones that we had asked for which captured the mood of the day. We would highly recommend Phil for your special event.

Very, Very Happy

To say that we were happy with Phil as our wedding photographer would be a massive understatement.


From the first moment we contacted him and let him know that we needed a photographer, Phil has been meticulous with details, quick to respond to all enquiries, and in plenty of detail, and always prepared to offer suggestions that will enhance the final product.


In the lead up to the wedding, Phil asked for lots of details, which we were happy to provide. This gave us a sense of trust in him, in anticipation that the care he dedicates to his paperwork is replicated in his photographs.


On the day, Phil got the balance between being assertive enough to make sure he got the perfect photographs, and discreet when we were letting our hair down, perfectly.


We sat with a glass of wine and amongst friends to view our photos for the first time the other night, and it was quite an emotional experience. My wife and I are demanding people, who have a high attention to detail, and we said that these were the best wedding photographs that we have seen.


We are very, very happy customers, and would recommend him highly!


Hi Phil, Thank you for the wedding album. It arrived safe and sound last week, along with the two parent copies. We are so thrilled with the pictures and how the album has turned out and will be something to look at and share with friends and family for years to come!

So Pleased

Dear Phil

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work last Saturday. We are so pleased you agreed to photograph our wedding and be part of our day. So so many people have commented on how amazing you were and I couldn't have hoped to meet a nicer man, or a better photographer!

We really appreciate everything you did to help make our day so truly special. Thank you!

Love Them

We looked at the photos last night and we absolutely love them. It took us right back to the day and we both saw parts of it that we otherwise wouldn't have. Thank you so much. We booked the right man! I'll carry on trying to send work your way in future definitely!


OMG! I love them - thank you so much Phil - I can't believe how much detail you have captured of all the little things I have made.

Its like Christmas came early!! You are so talented. You have captured our happiest day of our lives perfectly.

That's my weekend sorted constantly looking through them! I can't thank you enough for all of your efforts.

Great Photos!!

Just to let you know the disc arrived on Thursday and we are so thrilled with the photos, you really captured the whole day brilliantly!! Printed out a load of photos to show family this weekend, such great photos!!

Thank you.

They are perfect

They are so GORGEOUS!!! Wow. We are so so pleased with them!! you’ve captured so many beautiful moments and it was so lovely to go through and re live the day through them!! Thank you so much again, they are perfect ❤️ It’s so clear to see how passionate you are about photography and we love that. Thank you for capturing all those special moments for us that we will treasure forever.

Super Professional

"Phil is a brilliant wedding photographer. Right from when we first met for a meeting to discuss ideas and packages, Phil never pressured us into anything and never gave us the hard sell. He is very kind and patient and super professional as well as being a genius with his work. I was very comfortable being around Phil especially as I “hate” being in front of the camera but Phil was great at putting me at ease and was great on the day even at one point helping us coordinate the bridesmaids! From the photos we have seen already we are excited to see the rest - thank you for capturing the day so beautifully."

Relaxed Atmosphere

We would, without hesitation, recommend Philip as a wedding photographer. He made us both feel extremely at ease from the get go on our big day. He really helped create a relaxed atmosphere whilst helping us organise people into the right places! We are so pleased with the photos he captured of our special day which he turned around incredibly quickly and provided to us beautifully packaged.

Great Photographer

Philip was amazing on our wedding day, and on the run-up to it. Answering all/any questions we had and making sure that we got the day we wanted. The photos are amazing!! Friends and family have been blown away by them, as have we. Philip came by recommendation and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants great photos and a great photographer with them on the day!!


I just wanted to say thank you so so much for being such a fantastic photographer on our wedding day! You really were brilliant and I am so pleased with the few you have shown us already. It's exactly what we was after.

I can't wait to see the rest!

Speak soon!

Outstanding Wedding Photographer

We booked Philip as our Wedding Photographer after a recommendation from a friend. I cannot recommend Philip enough, He is absolutely brilliant at his Job. From start to finish Philip was extremely professional and has an amazing work ethic. He worked so hard to provide the best service and he did not disappoint. He ensured we had everything we needed on to the day and has an extremely relaxed personality with a great sense of Humour. We were blown away with the outcome and quality of our wedding photos, Philips works to a very realistic and time efficient schedule which ensured the day ran smoothly and we were able to get all the shots we wanted plus so much more. We cannot thank Philip enough for capturing our special day and making sure those memories were photographed so we can have them forever.

Absolutely Stunning

The photos are absolutely stunning, thank you so much! Everyone absolutely loves them, and we're obviously more than happy for you to put any/all of them on your blog/website/social media.


We’ve just had Phil do our wedding photography and we are so happy with our decision! Phil is extremely conscientious, friendly, professional, efficient and, most importantly, an excellent photographer! He responded to emails really quickly, listened to and took on board our ideas, made lots of really helpful suggestions and got loads of amazing shots of 2 incredibly unphotogenic subjects (us!). He even managed to edit all our shots and return them within a week! This is a seriously impressive service and I will be recommending Phil to anyone who needs a photographer. Cheers Phil!


The photos are incredible! So many pictures we hadn't even realised were captured as part of the day!


I just wanted to say a huge and heart felt thank you for all your work. So many people have said what incredible photos we have of our day and we completely agree. They are gorgeous and you have captured so many special moments. Thank you!!

Quick Turnaround

Thanks again Philip, you've done such an amazing job and such a quick turn around. Couldn't have asked for better photos xx

Friendly & Fun

Thank you so much for all your effort - we & all our guests thought you were incredibly professional but so friendly & fun. We all had the most amazing day, helped by you & now we get to relive it all through your amazing work!


Thank you for capturing our day in such a perfect way Phil, all of the photographs are wonderful - we can't stop looking at them and smiling! We especially love the photos in the long grass, so glad you found that spot, the colours look fantastic and really embody the relaxed, fun feel of our entire day.

Above And Beyond

Philip went above and beyond on our wedding day. He was so helpful prior to and on the day and made everything run smoothly. We've had so many comments from our guests on how good he was at his job on the day (and what a nice man he is) and we've had even more amazing comments on his photos! Thank you Phil for capturing the best day of our lives perfectly.

Super Job

Hi Phil,

How are you?

Thank you for doing such a super job with the pictures i know i have a awkward smile and we did not give you much direction as to what we wanted but they are amazing and your defiantly darn good at your job so thank you so much for this.

Amazing Job

"Definitely recommend Phil for wedding photography. Our wedding was due to take place in April, but do to Coronavirus, that was not possible so we brought it forward to the day before the UK shut its pubs. Phil fortunately could change dates too and he did an amazing job as our wedding photographer taking brilliant photos, responding quickly to emails and being friendly and professional. Couldn't ask for a better photographer. Thank you Phil."

Professionalism and Informality

We can’t recommend Phil's wedding photography highly enough. He has the perfect balance of professionalism and informality - a perfect combination for what is such an exciting, but at times overwhelming, experience. Phil’s efficiency is outstanding; we were delighted that he was able to send us a selection of beautiful photos less that 24 hours after the wedding! It was a pleasure working with Phil and we look forward to seeing him again at our friends' weddings next year.

Blown Away

Wow, just wow! We're so blown away with those shots you posted, they're gorgeous and have shared the link with all our friends and family. The long veil photo has turned out so so well, absolutely gorgeous! You've really captured the tender moments!


Phil was able to set everyone at ease on the day and has captured it perfectly, even the small moments and glances in between. We'd recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer that delivers (what our friends have called) "Fairy-tale movie stills". Thank you Phil!!!!


We’ve just this moment looked through the photos and we absolutely love them.

I’m always going to be a harsh critic on myself but they are lovely and I personally love all the family and friends shots. That was exactly what we wanted, thank you so much. We really are so chuffed.

Really Professional

Really professional and such a lovely guy. The whole process was clear and easy which is just what you need. Highly recommended him!


Philip is an absolutely awesome guy. He was with us from about 10.45am until 9pm (I think). He had such a calming, chilled way about him which made us feel at ease with having photos done. Just from seeing our previews I know we are going to have some absolutely outstanding photos to help remind us of our incredible day. Don't hesitate to book this man for your wedding, you will not regret it!


Phil is a hugely talented, reliable and organised professional, but perhaps most of all a great guy. He was one of the first people we discussed our wedding plans with, and his wealth of experience played a huge part not just in our wedding photographs (which are better than we could have ever imagined!), but in the planning and execution of almost every aspect of our big day. From day one of our wedding planning onward, Phil went considerably out of his way to 'be there' for us when we needed. Always amazingly fast to reply to our many questions, he was the calming voice of reason both before but especially during our ceremony and reception. In fact on the day itself, Phil ended up effectively taking on the role of our event organiser when we realised (surprise surprise) that yes, we were going to be too busy to coordinate five different contractors and 100 guests ourselves. This would have been impressive enough, but most of all we have been blown away by the quality of Phil's artwork. His photos are totally beautiful and unique, and we will forever cherish the images both Phil and his amazing assistant Gosia took of our family and friends. A few months on, we still look at them every day. Phil, thank you so much, you are utterly amazing and we couldn't recommend you highly enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Thank you so much we received the USB on Christmas Eve and we were able to share these with friends and family over Christmas which was lovely! We are so happy with all the fantastic and breathtaking photos you took. We couldn't be happier!

Wonderful Memories

Came home to find our photos had arrived! Had a quick look and really pleased with what we've seen. Brings back some very happy memories. Also had us in fits of laughter, particularly the photo booth! Thank you so much, absolutely thrilled, the album is so beautiful! We can't thank you enough for all the work you have put in to capturing our special day and providing us with so many wonderful memories.

Great Quality

Thanks - we picked [our album] up from the post office this morning. We love it! It's great quality and the picture arrangement looks even better in the finished product. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Thank you

Gem & Tom

LOVE The Photos

We've received the disk and LOVE the photos!! Thank you so much!

Thanks again Phil, you helped make our day so easy and fun and I can't wait to share your amazing photo's with everyone!

Great Photography

Hey Phil! We love the photos, can't stop looking through them.

Looking forward to married life actually starting!! Also thought I would let you know that you have had many compliments from our guests. They loved your relaxed approach and said you weren't intrusive at all. Helped make the relaxed/happy wedding atmosphere!

See you both soon. And continue the great photography work. Very talented!

Testimonials about my Wedding Photography

Marian & Rob Giddings

I wanted to tell you that the photos are incredible, we absolutely LOVE them!!!! We couldn’t have wished for better pictures, thank you so much! You really have taken all the pictures we asked for, many of which were a bit different to the norm and I think you really captured the vision we were after and we are absolutely thrilled!!!

The horse ones are fantastic and I particularly love the one where Rob is carrying me taken from behind, I think that’s really special! As for the horse and cart, wow, us all on the straw bales, and all the pictures of everyone enjoying the day… I could go on, they are great!!!

Thank you so much for listening so intently to what we were after, I really appreciate your time and effort that has gone into making these what they are 🙂

Matt & Amy

Good morning Phil, Everyone who’s seen our photos has said how good they are and most have said that they’re probably the best wedding photos in terms  of style and quality they’ve seen.  Amy and I feel the same.

Several of my friends and family also mentioned you specifically and had nothing but praise for the way you handled the day with poise, practicality and ease.  We would always recommend your services to others and the photos speak for themselves.

Steve & Charlotte

Just got back from the honeymoon, a little tired but we were so excitied to have the photos to open!  Thanks so much for getting them out so quickly. We had meant to text you before we went away, to thank you also for staying at the wedding until the end and for doing such a fantastic job – we’d absolutely recommend you to others and more than happy to write a testimonial for your website if that would help. We’ve had a quick look at the photos and they look great!  No doubt we’ll spend more time looking at them later today.

Sam & Holly

You got some great shots throughout the day and it really captured everything we wanted. It was lovely to look back over them. You were brilliant on the day as well, fun to have around and very professional.

We got the wedding album in the post yesterday and really enjoyed looking through it last night. Lots of great memories and fun to relive the day through all the photos.

We’ve been extremely happy with the service we have got from you and won’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family that get married in the future.

Ant & Tam

Mr Bedford… Tam and I can’t begin to thank you for being the best photographer in the WORLD at the weekend! You really went so far above and beyond the call of duty that the call of duty was a indistinguishable dot in the distance!

Thanks again Philip you are a truly splendid gentleman!
