Loved Helen!

Helen was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole lead up to the wedding and the wedding day. She was so helpful with everything we needed, was always on hand to answer questions and flexible. The photos were stunning, she knew exactly where and how to capture the best images. She also got our photo album back really quick after the wedding even though she’s so busy! She is also super lovely and very easy to get on with. Would recommend her to everyone, couldn’t fault her at all.

Outstanding!

Helen was so incredible. She made me feel so comfortable from the very first phone call. She had been such a support the whole way through and was amazing on our wedding day. Helen made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. It was a pleasure spending the day with her and having her be a part of our wedding day. She had so much knowledge and understanding of her craft and listened to what we wanted to gave us guidance when needed. I don't think the day would of been what it was without Helen.

Wonderful experience and brilliant photos ....

From the first time we met Helen at a Wedding fair we knew that she was the ideal photographer for us, such a warm and friendly person. We met at our venue a week before our wedding, this was brilliant as it gave us an idea what to expect on our big day from a photography viewpoint and also walk around the grounds to talk about possible shots and ideas. On the morning of our wedding we had an issue with a supplier but Helen was brilliant so supportive and caring. During the day she was fun to be with and the shots she could are breathtaking, Helen started the day as our wedding photographer but left as Helen our friend the wedding photographer, i could not recommend her high enough.

Perfect Wedding Photos

We came across Helen whilst looking for a photographer for our wedding. When we saw Helen's portfolio we knew instantly she would be perfect fit for our wedding. It was an absolutely pleasure working with Helen, she captured the most beautiful and vibrant photos of our wedding. Through the day Helen was constantly making sure each photo was unique and different to achieve a wide variety photos of our special day. Helen was fantastic through out and we will be highly recommending her to all our family and friends.

Made Our Day

I was a 56 year old bride to be who hated having her photo taken and if I could of got a stand in I would. The first email from Helen was so personal and she clearly understood my anxieties. She came to our home in person with pictures and albums and to get to know us. She suggested a visit to the wedding venue to get a feel for where she thought good pictures could be taken and whether we wanted particular arears to have pictures taken. We discussed and looked at arears inside and outside of the venue with UK weather being unpredictable. We booked Helen a year before our wedding which was on 14 April 2022 and within that year she kept in regular contact and by the time the day came along she was a friend which made me feel so comfortable when it came to her taking the pictures on the day and i can truly say i enjoyed every minute as did my now husband and the pictures spoke for themselves.
Helen Weir will capture you and your wedding party making you feel and look a million dollars and i can not thank her enough

Wonderful Photographer

Helen photographed our wedding in April 2022 and was amazing. Before the day we got together and discussed what we wanted and Helen was able to advise us of the best places for our venue and was ready for any weather. On the day she was organised and really good with all the guests. She always has a smile on her face and is very professional. Helen captured beautiful natural shots and has created a special memory of our wedding day.

Excellent Photographer, excellent results!

Helen was our photographer for our wedding in December '20 and I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending her. She gave us lots of time beforehand to discuss our requirements, but really, it's best to leave things entirely in her hands! She was excellent with organising the photo's, particularly with the young ones and her experience shone through with some off-beat and unusual shots too! The results speak for themselves and we have a collection to treasure! Totally and highly recommended!

Fantastic,Helen made our day very special

Helen made our day very special, she was very calming and made everybody feel at ease, Helen made our photos look very natural rather than staged photos, she was brilliant with my youngest daughter which was 7 and made her feel like she was playing a big part in the day, we would highly recommend Helen, she is a genuine lovely friendly lady.

Dream wedding photographer on many levels

We would thoroughly recommend Helen Weir photography she made us feel very comfortable and listened to what we wanted. She had some great ideas and her creativity was amazing. Helen made everyone very relaxed and as ease and I think this shows in our photos.

we went to a wedding fair and met several photographers, but upon speaking to Helen we just felt a connection and that carried through onto our wedding day.

Incredible positivity, professionalism and commitment to our day.

We booked Helen on the spot after meeting her at a wedding show, and she did not disappoint. Her communication with us on the lead up to the wedding was amazing. She even sent extremely helpful hints and tips as we prepared for the big day.
On the day Helen was superb, she knew exactly what to do and when to do it. Her intuition on when to swoop in and get the perfect shot is absolutely priceless. We couldn’t be more grateful to Helen and second photographer Paul for their incredible positivity, professionalism and commitment to our day.
100% would recommend

Wonderful experience...

Our wedding was a small and intimate one, surrounded by family and only a handful of friends. Thus, I was very apprehensive about inviting a stranger to capture those intimate moments.

Upon meeting Helen, and within the first few minutes of chatting, all my worries, fears and anxiety disappeared. It was like we have been friends all our lives.
From the planning on our first meet, going through everything we wanted or hoped for, to the actual special day. We felt like we were in good hands, and we were.
Professional isn't enough to describe Helen's amazing work.

Fantastic and professional

Helen was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, with all her industry knowledge she was able to give us some much needed direction resulting in some absolutely amazing photos. Helen really provided us with a personal experience and felt more like a friend than our photographer! She would definitely go the extra mile for the perfect photo and has an amazing way of rounding people up for their shots. I honestly could not recommend Helen enough, she was professional, friendly, kind and generally a very interesting and talented person.

Captured our Wedding Day to perfection

5* Service.
I was so happy with our Wedding Day pictures and Helen captured the day to perfection. So much so that I found it very difficult to decide the number of pictures I wanted in my Wedding photo album. I loved every single photo.
I would highly recommend Helen for high quality, professional service.

I simply love the romance and buzz of a wedding day. Having two girls myself, every wedding is just like a scene from a romatic disney film.

Not only am I a photographer for your special day, I become your friend for life.

I have a real passion for weddings and photography. A winning combination.
