Reportage wedding photography testimonials

March 4, 2024

As you look around our website and our social media, you can see so many examples of our reportage wedding photography. Natural, real and authentic moments. You can see we have our own unique style – you can get a real feeling for the relaxed and non-traditional approach we take to documenting weddings. And of course, you can see we’ve won some of the biggest and most prestigious awards you can win in our industry (see some of the awards that we’re most proud of winning below).

But how will it actually feel to have us photograph your wedding day? What’s it like to spend your day with us? And most importantly, how will it feel to receive your final image gallery after your wedding – to look through all the moments we’ve captured for you? Well, we can’t actually tell you what all that feels like. In fact, the only people who can really tell you what to expect are our previous couples. So, we’ve collated a number of testimonials below (alongside some images from these beautiful weddings) for you to read through.

We’ve been photographing weddings together since 2017, but these testimonials are all from recent weddings. Thanks so much to every single one of our couples for leaving us the most incredible feedback (it was so very difficult to choose just a few examples for this blog). It’s really humbling to read all of these kind words, together, in one place. More than the awards, more than being able to travel the world visiting new places, meeting new people – it’s knowing our couples love what we do that means everything to us. We absolutely love our job and the most important thing is knowing that our couples love the stories we tell through our wedding photography. So without further ado, here are twenty incredible testimonials from our previous couples from weddings photographed all over the UK.

“It’s like a gallery of renaissance oil paintings of everyone we love”

“Oh my gosh you guys! Wow. We have no idea how to thank you enough! We clicked through these photographs alternating between tears, gasps and laughter. They are absolutely stunning. It’s like a gallery of renaissance oil paintings of everyone we love having an amazing time and looking joyful. Looking at them is like reliving it! We could not be happier thank you, thank you. You made our wedding into art”. Tatty and Theo, married at Hoxton Docks, London.

“You really captured the tone and feeling we wanted”

“The photos are amazing – thank you so much for the images. We spent a few hours having a look through on Friday night and it was such a lovely memory to go back too. We both love them all and the images are so, so good! You really captured the tone and feeling we wanted so we can’t thank you enough for that! And we’re so pleased went out for a walk at sunset too – we absolutely love the moments you captured then” Jamie and Julia, married at Chalk Barn, Wiltshire.

“Thanks so much for the pictures, we love them! We thought that the examples on your website that you show were just the highlights of your best work, but they’re all incredible!” Liz and Ben, married at Little Wold Vineyard, Yorkshire.

“We must have watched the slideshow about ten times”

“We love them. We’ve been sat scrolling through the pictures all evening, thank you so much for getting them out to us. We must have watched the slideshow about ten times.” Hayley and Tom, married at the Inn On The Lake, The Lake District. 

“You were so kind, flexible, friendly and unobtrusive”

“We have absolutely LOVED looking through the photos you sent to us – they reflect so many different emotions from the day and are such beautiful memories. You both really are such talented photographers and you’re brilliant at what you do. The shots you got are so impressive and artistic! You were both honesty such a pleasure to have as part of our wedding – so kind, flexible, friendly and unobtrusive. And when we were talking about our wedding afterwards we have both said how we don’t have memories of standing for ages having staged photos but rather just having fun and being present which is perfect and really all thanks to you both.” Shani and Abin, married at Wrenbury Hall, Cheshire.

“We felt like we were reliving the best day of our lives”

“Wow!!! We are so overwhelmed with absolute joy and delight at our beautiful wedding gallery. The emotion you have captured is just unbelievable and we fully felt like we were reliving the best day of our lives when we were going through the pictures! We’re absolutely blown away with them – they are so much fun to look at and so engaging. We love all of them – from getting ready, to the ceremony to the reception and the brilliant dance floor pics!! We can’t thank you enough for your efforts and providing us with lifelong memories. Thank you so much, we are so truly grateful” Chloe and Guy, married at Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire

“More than anything, Hollie and Patrick are so, so lovely”

“Hollie and Patrick are simply incredible. Five stars are nowhere near enough to thank them for how many authentically meaningful memories they have left us with from our wedding day. When the wedding is over, it’s the memories that outlast nearly everything else, so entrusting the job of capturing those memories to someone you trust is one of the most crucial wedding choices you can make.

When we pictured seeing our wedding photos, we imagined a gallery full of surprises while still telling the day’s story. After seeing Hollie and Patrick’s work and speaking with them about their ethos, we felt they inexplicably connected with everything we valued. They exceeded our expectations and have left us with some of the most personal and valuable art we will ever own. More than anything, Hollie and Patrick are so, so lovely, and both are clearly incredibly passionate about what they do. It was an absolute pleasure to have them join us for our wedding in London, and we can’t thank them enough from the bottom of our hearts for capturing one day of our life so perfectly.” Chelsea and Lou, married in London and Bath.

“The photos tell the perfect story from beginning to end”

“Hollie and Patrick, we don’t even know where to begin! Thank you so, so much for capturing our day. The photos tell the perfect story from beginning to end. It is exactly what we were looking for and we’re lost for words just how beautiful these photos are! You truly are the best at what you do and we will never be able to express how grateful we are! We’ve had the slideshow on repeat the last two hours!” Paige and Harry, married at Rise Hall, Yorkshire

“There’s new things that catch our eye in the photos every time we look at them”

“The stunning wedding photographs you took have actually helped us through some difficult days. So we cannot thank you enough for capturing the love and joy of our wedding. We had an incredible time and relive it every time we look at the images you took. One of my favourite photographers is Martin Parr and I think that’s why I love your style so much. There’s so much detail and energy in your pictures. There’s new things that catch our eye in the photos that make us laugh and cry every time we look at them. You were both so fabulous to work with and we feel privileged to have had you tell our story.” Sharon and Barry, married at a festival wedding in Derbyshire.

“We will treasure these images forever”

“What can we say. There are no words but thank you so much. We have laughed and cried going through these. They capture the day so perfectly.
