Every wedding needs a Neil!
We first met Neil and his wife Sam at a wedding fayre, we hadn't even booked our wedding yet but knew that Neil was the person we wanted to capture our special day. The service Neil and Sam provided was seamless from start to finish, we didn't have to think about anything. Timely, professional, and very reasonably priced. Our guests commented on how at ease they were as Neil discretely snapped away at all those moments we can now cherish forever. He was also great with our two young sons, the photos of which never fail to bring a tear to my eye. When we received our photos it was just like being back there enjoying the day all over again, Neil captured the atmosphere and told the story of our day perfectly. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, he's most definitely proven that every wedding needs a Neil!

He captured exactly what we wanted
We booked Neil for our Asian wedding and he did a fantastic job! He was so accommodating, organised and prepared! Neil made the effort to make sure he knew exactly what was happening on the wedding day and the days leading up to the day... right down to what we were wearing to make sure he captured every moment! Our guests felt very comfortable and the kids loved him! Most importantly he captured exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it. I was very hesitant about booking him at first because he had never done an Asian wedding before, but I'm so glad I did!

Cannot recommend Neil enough!
Cannot recommend Neil enough! We met Neil at a wedding fair nearly 18 months before out first day and he was one of the first photographers we met. Despite meeting others, we kept going back to Neil and we are so so glad we did. Neil did an amazing job capturing our wedding. The photos are incredible (so brilliant we are struggling to work out which ones we want printed). He immediately puts you at ease, will talk through ideas as many times as you need and Sam is always at the end of the phone or email if you think of questions you need answering. On the day of the wedding, Neil felt more like a member of the family than a photographer. He blended into the day seamlessly and we enjoyed every second of him being there. If you want beautiful, natural photos to remind you of your special day then Neil is the photographer for you.

Peckforton Castle Wedding
Via a mutual friend, Neil found out that we were having a wedding at a castle and not going to have a photographer, he was aghast by this and insisted that she put us in touch with him. We are so glad this happened, we have a set of amazing photos that we wanted from our special day. I have never met someone so passionate and professional. We met with him before hand and he got to know us so he knew what we wanted and what we did not and then made sure that we had loads of fun taking our photos! We live in China and had a complex day planned, this was not a problem for Neil as he is so flexible and cares about the client experience. Thank you so much Neil we now have our favourite sparkler photo blown up to 2 meters x 1 meter above the couch in the living room!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

We shot a wedding in the summer of 2016 which took place in a cave in the Lake District. Literally a cave, Cathedral Cave. The technical challenges of shooting in such a dark space aside, it involved the main shooter climbing a rock waterfall whilst carrying his camera gear to reach a cliff edge for a group shot. An unforgettable wedding and also one of my absolute favorites.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Discreet, Confident, Natural, Unpretentious, Friendly

What about your business are you most proud of?

The reaction of my Brides and Grooms when I deliver their images. Its the most nerve wracking time that you can imagine, waiting for them to reply, it seems to last forever. Their reaction has always been one of amazement! Usually along the lines of 'Oh My! You caught that?' I live for it!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Take time for yourselves during the day, escape from the function room and take a walk on your own as newlyweds. Spend time with each other, many Brides and Grooms remark to me that they hardly saw their partner during the day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Personalised, hand written notes for every guest, waiting for them at their table for the wedding breakfast. The reaction of everyone was amazing. It must have taken the Bride and Groom weeks to produce them.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

There should ALWAYS be that one magical image of the Bride and Groom, outside at night, regardless of the weather, that could be on the cover of a magazine. Your photographer should have it all set up for you and it should take just a few moments for him or her to capture it. Everyone deserves to be a movie star on their wedding day!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

A portrait of the Bride and Groom stood in a turnip field behind a caravan park. Yes Mark & Rhiannon, Im talking about you two!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Get outside!! Grab an umbrella and dash out into the rain with your photographer. He will only need you for 30 seconds and a rain shot is absolutely beautiful.
