Amazing Value and Quality of both Photography and Service
We were lucky that we had the opportunity to book such a talented photographer. We cannot say enough good things about Philip Craven' photography. Even though the weather was against us he was able to produce fantastic results. It was a big help and pleasure having him at our wedding. We love the album! We would highly and sincerely recommend him. Karen and Peter Moore

Surely The Best Photographer
From start to finish Philip Craven of Surrey Wedding Photography was professional, friendly and passionate about his work. He was the only photographer we could find using professional digital medium format cameras. (Quality was more important to us than quantity). We thoroughly enjoyed having him there on our special day and we always knew (from seeing his previous work) that our photographs would be amazing, but when we got to see them for the first time we were blown away! After the ceremony Philip took us to a picturesque woodland setting for some romantic wedding photography. The photos were were more than amazing, they truly did captured our perfect day! All our family and friends have commented on just how beautiful the album and photographs are! We cannot thank you enough Philip! Mike and Sue Write, married 7th September at Dorking
