    Perfect

    Thank you Ben for making sure we will forever remember our wedding day at Leez Priory on 30th October 2015.

    We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. You were so professional, helpful and supportive throughout our day. Thank you for keeping us on track with the tight schedule we had, and for remembering all the specific photos we had discussed during our planning meeting.
    Our guests were so impressed with the way our photos have turned out and we couldn't have been happier, especially with those Autumn colours you managed to capture so beautifully.

    Thank you for helping to keep our perfect wedding day in an album for us to look at and remember forever.

    Awesome!

    Ben photographed our wedding on March 7th this year and he has been absolutely amazing the whole day! Photos were amazing and the ones he showed our guests before the start of the evening on his laptop got brilliant comments from them.
    He's also done our thank you cards (which look amazing!) and we are impatiently waiting for our book!
    Ben you have been awesome, thanks again!!!!!

    Fantastic photos

    This is probably one of the hardest decisions to make when booking suppliers as the photos are all you have left to remind you of the special day. What a relief that I booked Lavenham photography, the photos were fantastic. Ben was very polite and friendly, he wasn't over overpowering, I have been to so many weddings where the photographer is often a little rude or very intrusive. Ben was very nice he made a point of remembering all the names of the important members of the family, which was a task in itself as my husbands parents are both remarried! I have a photo of every stage of the wedding, when you flick through the photos its as if its been filmed. I couldn't have asked for better photos they are stunning.

    Lavenham Photographic's reply:

    Hi Debbie,
    Thanks so so much for taking the time to leave me a review! Very kind of you, and I'm so glad you are so pleased with the photos! All the very best to the both of you! (And Happy New Year!)

    The most beautiful pictures

    I cannot recommend Lavenham photography highly enough. We have the most beautiful pictures of our wedding day. There is a good mix of lined up group photos and also many wonderful natural shots which Ben took while the day progressed. Ben also went round capturing photo's of all our guests to ensure we had shots of everyone there. They are beautiful pictures and we couldn't have been more pleased and we have various shots displayed round our house reminding us of our amazing day. Thanks Ben, you did an outstanding job.

    We would like to express our sincere thanks to Ben for taking the most amazing photos of our perfect wedding. From his arrival at our wedding venue on the wedding morning, he made everyone feel relaxed and at ease, and took so many great pictures! He has captured moments that we missed on the day and we will be forever grateful to him for this. We have already recommended Ben to others and will continue to do so in the future, Thank you !

    Couldn't have asked for more!

    I wanted lots of photos of my big day but I didn't want to stand in front of a camera for hours...and Ben got the mix spot on. I looked at the photos after and was amazed at how many had been taken without me even noticing him, it was exactly what a wanted and I was spoilt for choice for my storybook. Would recommend him 100%.

    Proffessional, a relaxed wedding party & fab photos

    We were married in 2010 and were so glad that Ben provided the photography services. He was very courteous, mingling as one of teh guests to take natural photos of the occasion. It was lovely to see these after the event. I ahve a split family & Ben dealt with this situation brillliantly as well as ensuring photos with our elder members were completed first. So they could go for a well earned cup of tea. One of my bridesmaids is a proffessional photographer & she didn't feel the need to get her camera out whihc was brilliant as she's actually in the photos!
    He also stayed later than planned to get evening shots and becuase our plans didn't run to schedule.
    Thank you so much Ben! From the happy couple, who are now 2 years later a happy family :)

    Hi Sian,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to add your review! I really appreciate it, and I'm so glad you're happy with your wedding photos!! :-)

    Ben captured every single moment of our day so perfectly

    We could not be happier with our photos. Ben was the photographer at my brother and sister in laws wedding who likewise had seen Ben's work from another wedding and it was therefore so nice to not have to worry as we knew exactly the high quality service we would be getting. I think that the photos are one of the most important parts of a wedding as it is from the photos that you get to re-live the day, and Ben captured every single moment of our day so perfectly. From start to finish Ben was highly professional which many of our guests commented upon, he was punctual, very smart, and organised all of the shots we requested and within less than a week we were able to view our photos online. Apart from of course the amazing photo's, we think that what makes Ben's work so great is the fact that he is a genuinely really nice guy which put Henrik and I, and our guests, at such ease, which enabled the really natural photos we wanted. We would recommend Ben so highly and the photos speak for themselves, tell him what you want from the photos of your day and he will deliver. We can't wait to see the album. Thankyou Ben.

    Superb

    We were very happy with Ben. We liked the way he took pictures of people just naturally rather than formally as well as the formal photos. Photos were superb!!

    We were delighted to have hired Ben

    We were delighted to have hired Ben as our photographer for our wedding on the 22nd September.

    Ben from the very beginning was very clear and helpful with regards to communication and explaining all of his packages to us. It's clear from his online body of work that he is a highly skilled and professional photographer. Even in our case, where he hasn't worked at the venue where we got married, he was able to use his experience and good eye for detail, to determine where and what would make a good photograph. On top of his talent, he interacted very well with our guests and made everyone feel at ease.

    A lot of our guests have compliment Ben and the work that he has done. Ben's turnaround time for getting us our photos were very quick. He printed some top quality wedding thank you cards and put all out photos on a carved wooden USB, which came in a personalized box with our names and wedding date on it. We also got our very own wedding brochure too.

    Thank you for playing such a big part in capturing our day and for allowing us to remember the best day of our lives forever.

    Would not think twice in recommending you to anyone I know who is getting married.

    No words to describe how incredible his work is!

    I got married back in April and we had Ben as our photographer. There are no words to describe how incredible his work is and how amazing he was on the day. He went above and beyond to ensure our day was special.
    We went for the platinum package and his service was exceptional! It hasn’t even been two months and we have already received all of our photos and albums already!
    Ben honestly is amazing and he captures the most amazing pictures, we have the most amazing memories of our special day and it is all thanks to Ben and his photos - we will treasure these forever. For anyone looking for a photographer, I would 100% recommend him, his work is phenomenal and you will not regret it! Thank you so so much Ben, we cannot thank you enough!

    There aren't really sufficient words to describe..

    Just like our whole wedding day, there aren't really sufficient words to describe how happy we are with Lavenham Photographic.
    From the first point of contact with Ben, his professionalism and genuine passion shone through. He immediately made us feel at ease when he arrived and his energy throughout the entire day was second to none. (He even endured our best man's need to follow our bride/groom shoot around the venue with prosecco with patience and good humour!!)
    Ben never felt overbearing with his need to photograph, yet he was confidently present to make sure that he captured moments that we will cherish forever - this is a real art & reflects how experienced he is.
    And the photos? Just wow. Everything we wanted.
    Thank you so so much Ben!

    Ben was professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. He put us at ease straight away, and captured photos that we wanted as well as more casual relaxed photos. We are so pleased with the end result and love every image. Thank you so much for being a part of our day!
