One of the best decisions we made for our day!
"I first heard about Claire through a bridal shop that I nearly didn’t bother going to. There was no dress bought that day but I did leave with an emphatic recommendation to look up her work. And so we did. We only saw one photographer in the end because once we met up with Claire and saw her albums, it was pretty obvious that we wouldn’t be needing to meet anyone else. It is one of the best decisions we made for our day. Once we’d seen how good wedding photography can be it became even more important to us that our day was captured by Claire, we couldn’t have entrusted it to anyone else. We had a pre wedding chat to talk over finals details but really we knew we could just let her get on with it. The day is fleeting and we didn’t want to spend ages doing group shots or silly poses and Claire is totally on board with this. She lets you get on with the important stuff, like enjoying yourself. Claire was relaxed, friendly and happy. It was like having another guest (but with an awesome camera). Our friends and family all really took to her and she was happy to indulge us, putting up with a lot of silliness and giddiness with good humour! Neither of us are posers or naturals in front of the camera but with Claire you don’t have to be. We never felt that we had to do anything cringey for the sake of a photograph. It was just easy and relaxed. We totally love her reportage style even more for that reason. The colours, the hint of vintage (but no clichés!) are perfection. We love that Claire picked up on the little details. There’s a photograph of our much-loved Marshall speaker on an old school chair against these beautiful green tiles. Not everyone would have picked up on the ordinary beauty of that, but Claire did. Our venue was a rough diamond full of character and history but plenty of imperfections too. When we told Claire about it she was super excited, which was just lovely to see because we really wanted our photographer to understand what we loved about at it and Claire totally did. Her photographs capture the beauty, light and colour of the building. She saw it as we did. The same words come up when we’ve shown our photos to our friends, family and colleagues: ‘stunning’, ‘amazing’. These words can be a bit overused but we have to say, we completely agree. Our favourite thing about the photos is that you didn’t have to be there to know what the day was like. We saw a preview on the blog very quickly after the wedding and we were right back there. Claire, we consider your photographs to be an heirloom. They have truly captured our special day for the future. We will get them out every year on 25 April and relive our day. With much love Emma and Pete xx"

Thank you Claire for capturing a beautiful day
"When my lad told me he'd asked a photographer to come down to Ramsbury from Cheshire, I originally thought... 'Why? Surely it's possible to find someone much closer with comparable skills'. I'm delighted to say (not for the first time) that he made absolutely the right decision. Not only were you a delight to be with on the day, but the quality (and range) of photographs we've seen so far on the blog are amazing. When we spoke on the day I knew you were enjoying your work and this comes through on the photographs. Everyone felt at ease when you were photographing them and the results are here for all to see. Thank you so much Claire for capturing a beautiful day with equally stunning results. Duncan x"

Wonder Woman of Wedding Photography!
Wonder Woman of Wedding Photography! Wow, just wow! Every single second and emotion of our day, you’ve captured to perfection. The laughter, tears and general clowning around. You can see there’s a whole lot of love and happiness that came out of our day and not just between Jon and I, but every single one of our family and friends. We will truly cherish these forever and can’t wait to show them to the world (regardless of the amount of silly faces I pull)! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the biggest day of our lives so far in a way that has touched our hearts like no one else could have. We absolutely love every single picture, they’re quirky, full of love and happiness. We had a perfect day and we're overjoyed you could be part of it. Lots of love, The Fawcetts xxx

Oh Claire these are just amazing!
"Oh Claire, these are just amazing! They are completely perfect, I didn’t know either of us were so photogenic! Thank you so so much, we are so pleased with them, you’ve captured so much happiness and all the little moments that are so easy to forget. It feels like the first of May all over again, we are so thrilled with them and we are currently discussing purchasing a fireproof external hard drive so they can never ever be lost! (maybe a little extreme?). Thank you again, I really can’t express how perfect the photographs are and how much we loved having you as our photographer, you were just so so lovely to have around and made everything feel so easy and relaxed. We feel so lucky to have had such a beautiful day and so thankful to have our memories captured by you :) Thank you, thank you!! love Emma and Adam xxx
