    Highly recommended

    We had the privilege of Rick being our photographer for our wedding in August 2021. He was highly recommended to us by our venue and our other suppliers. We had our pre wedding photo shoot in Denzel Gardens in Altrincham, it was clear from here that Rick was passionate about his work and a lovely guy; we felt at ease straightaway. On the wedding day he arrived early and stayed till late with his passion and enthusiasm from the get his. Rick knew every inch of the venue and where he could get the best shots from of me and my new husband. Everyone was so complimentary about Rick and said how lovely he was and how he made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable, we have no hesitation in recommending Rick. Thank you again for photographing our wedding, Kaley and Tom.

    Amazing photos telling the story of your day

    Rick was our Wedding photographer for our big day in August 2021. Rick came highly recommended by one of our other wedding suppliers and once we viewed some of his portfolio, we knew he was the one for us. My wife and I met with Rick well before the Wedding where we all got to know each other, he walked us through the sort of pictures and poses we would do on the day, he took several photos which was our Pre-Wedding shoot and we just had a pleasant chat and stroll through some local gardens which Rick had recommended. It was obvious from this first meeting that Rick has a great passion for his work but also goes that extra mile in getting to know his clients and what they want from their day. On the wedding day Rick worked tirelessly to get all the usual wedding photos and was there from very early in the morning to well in the evening, he has a great skill in catching those lovely candid moments where people are just enjoying themselves. The pictures themselves are amazing and viewing them brings all the memories of the day back to life, he makes such good use of his surroundings to get some truly lovely shots. I would happily recommend Rick to anyone looking for that special photographer you will not be disappointed.

    Wedding photography

    From the outset Rick was friendly and approachable. He remained so even when we had to postpone due to Covid. He was helpful and understanding throughout challenging and uncertain times.
    When the big day arrived he was punctual, diligent and enthusiastic. Gave flexibility due to constant changing situations without any difficulty.
    We have some wonderful photos and fantastic memories of the day.
    Would highly recommend Rick to anybody looking for a reliable and professional wedding photographer.

    Outstanding professionalism and truly great photography!

    Rick is amazing! We would never go anywhere else for photos now, and consider Rick the best! From the first day we met him over two years ago, we knew he was the right photographer for us for our wedding day. Always professional and with great suggestions, our first meeting with Rick showed us how friendly he was and so supportive in what we envisioned. We had to change our date three times, and on all occasions, he was so wonderful and made the moves so smooth and easy for us. We managed to get our pre-wedding shoot in with Rick before lockdown in 2020 and it was a wonderful morning just chatting and getting lots of natural photos which we were over the moon with. We made a vast list of who we wanted photos with on the day and where we wanted them as well! Rick knows Mere Court where we got married really well, so we knew this was a bonus! From the second Rick stepped in to the hotel on the morning of our wedding, he made us all feel really comfortable, happy and excited! The photos are just so incredible and really do speak a thousand words! The thought, detail and care gone into each photo is outstanding, and we are just so happy with every single one of them! Rick went above and beyond from start to finish, and we cannot wait to go back when our second child is born for another day of photos! Thank you so much Rick! Amazing quality and outstanding detail and professionalism. Franchi and Mike.

    Wonderful & Professional

    We had our special day last month, our photos are incredible.
    We got exactly what we asked for and much more. Rick was professional and kind throughout. With a 2 week turn around for all our images back which is just brilliant, what’s not to love?

    We had a pre wedding shoot where we got to know eachother and then a pre wedding meet up at Ricks home studio to discuss our day. During this meeting we discussed all the shots we’d like and finalised details to put us at ease.

    Rick was fantastic on the day and we are super happy with our photos!

    thank you Gemma for your very kind review
    It was a great pleasure to help you and your family on your special day .

    Absolutely outstanding

    Rick Dell recently took the photos for our wedding and he really made our day special by making us so relaxed, making us laugh, guiding us through the photos and making us feel like the most important people in the world. He helped us through COVID and remained professional throughout and helped us when we had to postpone our wedding. He was very flexible and made us feel special. He did exactly what we wanted him to do and did not put any pressure on us to do anything different. He is a true professional and I would recommend him to all couples who are getting married. He will make you feel like the most important people in the world and he will take the time getting to know you. His prices are fair and reasonable because he quite literally “does the whole package” and he takes the time to go to through everything with you. We were thrilled with him and would use him again.

    Hi Helen
    Thank you so much for your very kind review. It was a pleasure to help you and meet your families.
    Kind regards Rick

    Fantastic!

    Wedding Day 31st July 2021
    Planning a wedding at any time can often be a stressful process but then, throw COVID in to the mix and that stress is amplified We had three wedding date changes due to lockdowns, rules changes etc. But fortunately for us our photographer Rick Dell didn't add to the stress, he went out of his way to be accommodating with the date changes we had to make and was adept at communicating with us throughout the whole unprecedented period - one of the many reasons that we chose him!
    We initially were recommended Rick, by several friends and colleagues who had used him as their wedding photographer and he certainly came through! Right from the moment we met him we were put immediately at ease - looking at his previous work in his studio filled us with even more confidence that he was the right photographer for us. He discussed with us the types of shots we would like and advised us with what shots would work well as he had an extensive knowledge of our venue.
    When the day of the wedding arrived, Rick fitted seamlessly into the day, not only making sure that we had the pictures that we requested but he also took a mirade of images of our special day thats were so natural and candid - this was exactly what we wanted. He captured the humour and joy of our day perfectly! Each image we have is an absolute accurate reminder of the day - which we will treasure and re-visit for ever! I would highly recommend Rick Dell!

    Highly recommended

    We first met Rick at the Mere Court Hotel wedding fayre. Rick was very approachable and also knowledgeable of the venue he ha photographed many times. He also showed us specific wedding albums of the venue to give us an idea of what we could expect.

    We took away the information given to us and booked pretty much straight away.
    We felt very relaxed when meeting with Rick about what we wanted from our day. He listened to our requests and also is some suggestions of his own which were greatly received.

    We also had an engagement shoot to get us used to how things would work during the day.

    The day of the wedding flowed fantastically.
    Rick was very understated and was never intrusive. He ran the day to a very strict schedule and was extremely professional throughout.

    The images we received back were incredible and exactly what we had hoped to capture of our special day.
    We had such a hard time choosing our images for the album as there were so many amazing ones!
    The whole experience was easy and enjoyable.
    Rick is very knowledgeable and professional and we are over the moon with the finished product.
    Highly recommended.

    Rick did an amazing job

    Rick did an amazing job photographing my wedding, and went above and beyond to capture some stunning shots.

    Before the wedding, we discussed how things would work on the day and got to see some of Rick's previous work. We decided on some innovative shots which we wanted on the big day, and also arranged a complimentary engagement shoot. It was a nice touch to get these images, and it also gave us an idea of how things would work on the actual wedding day.

    On the wedding day, Rick was very professional and organised. Photos started as the bridal party were getting ready and continued right up until the evening. Rick was great at organising the different shots, and used some great effects including smoke and sparklers to shoot some truly fantastic photos.

    I would certainly recommend Rick for any event and would not hesitate to book him again in the future.

    Rick captures the most amazing shots

    Rick photographed our wedding in March 2017. We cannot thank Rick enough for all his help throughout. Rick guided us from our initial meeting with him, through to the engagement shoot, and of course during our wedding day. Rick captures the most amazing shots, his work is exceptional. We cannot recommend Rick highly enough; if you are looking for an outstanding photographer then Rick is your man.

    The pictures that Rick captured are unbelievable

    We used rick on our wedding day and he was so professional and very patient with my husband who is not to keen on having his photograph taken. The pre wedding shoot is such a good idea to get used to being in front on the camera and what type of photographs we preferred as a couple. Rick is such a nice pleasant guy and made absolutely everyone feel so comfortable and relax throughout the day. The pictures that Rick captured are unbelievable I couldn’t have asked for any better. I would highly recommend rick to anyone getting married.

    Perfect

    We have just received our photo albums and they are perfect. It took a long time to choose the photos to go in the album, loved them all. We can't thank you enough for everything you did, not only on the wedding day, but the consultations before hand and pre wedding shoot. All the preparation meant everything went smoothly on the day and your knowledge of the venue helped when the weather wasn't exactly as planned. Thank you so much

    We are stunned with the quality of his shots

    Rick took our photos for our wedding in August and we are stunned with the quality of his shots.

    From the moment we booked Rick he instantly made us feel at ease.

    The months leading up to our wedding we had meetings and also an engagement shoot, all very personalised as he went through and wrote lists of any particular photos we wanted.

    On the day Rick knew both the venue and the church very well and everything went very smoothly from start to finish.

    We've recently picked our soft copies of the photos up and we now have the difficult task of choosing which of the amazing shots we would like in our album!

    If you want a 5 star photographer then you've come to the right Man!

    Thanks again Rick, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer and are thrilled with the results!!!

    Thank you Rick

    We found Rick at the Event City Wedding Fair and were drawn to his stall by some of his pictures on display. He does a good mixture of fun, quirky, group, romantic and scenic shots and has given us a fantastic range of photos. Many people commented on how hard he worked on the day and how beautiful the photos we've posted so far are. Rick has a lot of experience and was good with guiding us to ensure we got the right photos at the right time. He's open to ideas and humoured me and my bridesmaids when we were a bit tipsy and wanting some silly "attitude" type pictures which are some of our favourites. Thank you Rick
