We always like to meet our clients before booking; you will want to meet the photographer who will be with you most of your day, so you will want to know that you get on.

Mr & Mrs Dunwoodie - Jersey Farm
We wanted to share our gratitude and thanks for the wonderful photos taken by your self and your wife on our wedding day.Sent on 02/04/2019
We booked North lights for our wedding photography roughly a year and a half prior to the wedding day. From the day we met Robert we knew that he was who we wanted to photograph our special day. Robert was helpful as we did not know exactly what we wanted from our wedding photography, but after meeting with Robert and seeing his previous work we both felt confident and at ease with his suggestions.
North lights offer a selection of wedding packages suitable to varied budgets and taste and we felt that the packages offered were affordable and of a high standard. North lights offered a pre wedding shoot as part of the package we chose, as a couple we were both apprehensive about this as did not see the relevance of this, but North lights explained that this would make the day more relaxed. Following the pre wedding shoot we both felt much more at ease having our photograph taken and understood the relevance and importance of doing this, it helped the photography flow well on the day of the wedding.
On the wedding day we had two photographers one whom worked with the bridal party and the other with the grooms party, taking photos over the morning capturing all the wedding preparations. They both went above and beyond their roles helping the groom with his tie and button hole and his wife helping in a wedding dress stain crisis. They both remained professional at all times and did not intrude on the day with our family and friends.
Seeing the photos post the wedding day was a fantastic experience, seeing the day on photo really reminded us of the special moments we shared and the team also captured moments we did not know about providing insight to moments missed.
The final album laouty was very good, photographs well presented in chronological order. Initial draft received was perfect and did not require any touch ups or changes. Online viewing and ordering process simple and easy to use. All interactions with the North lights team were met with a timely response. Overall as a couple we were delighted with the overall product and professional service we received and would recommend North Lights to all those looking for a wedding photographer.
Mr & Mrs Natrass - Hallgarth Manor
Robert was the photographer for my wedding on August 19th. He was professional, courteous, and kind. Went above and beyond what we expected of him throughout the entire process. From start to finish, the organisation skills were exemplary. The pre-wedding shoot where Robert took me and my wife was excellent idea and we will treasure these professional photographs for life. On our wedding day the ideas and creativity truly stood out. From posing guests for family and group portraits to candid shots, they truly captured every magical moment of our big day even when the weather was pouring with rain, they were quick thinking and experienced with how to make every situation an advantage to us. Since the wedding, I have shown my wedding pictures to dozens of people via their professional secure online gallery. Each and every person has been completely amazed at the work that they did for us. Robert is truly a talented photographers and a pleasure to work with. He made the entire process easy for us and enjoyable. North-Light Photography comes with my highest recommendations for your photography needs whether for a wedding or a professional photo shoot.Sent on 02/04/2019
