The perfect Photographer for the Perfect day

I was lucky enough to book Nigel as our photographer, such an amazing photographer. I hate photos of myself, however Nigel managed to make me feel comfortable infront of the camera and took incredible moments of mine and my husband’s day. I couldn’t thank Nigel enough for making these magical memories come alive. I’d definitely recommend Nigel to anyone looking to book the perfect photographer.

Absolutely amazing!

We booked Nigel in 2018 after a wedding fair for our August 2020 wedding. Giving covid we only got married last year in August 2022! With all that Nigel was amazing. From rearranging 4 wedding dates & a new venue he was accommodating throughout. He was always quick to reply to messages, enquires & suggest photographs for the day.

On the wedding day itself he was a pleasure to be around. Was like having our close friend shoot our wedding. He took the time to get to know us, our children & family and it showed in the work he produced for us. He kept me at bay all day making sure me and Liam where okay, took us away to do some beautiful images and they are breathtaking to look at.

I new I loved his worked form the display he showed us at the original wedding fair but seeing it come to life on your wedding day was amazing. Nigel had our images edited and turned around so quickly too was nice to get them right before Christmas! Thank you Nigel for making apart of our day so special x

AMAZING - BOOK NOW - 100+% Recommend!!

Well, where do I began… Firstly, we would 200% recommend Nigel for your photographer! From our first contact with Nigel, he was extremely professional and friendly. He gave us some examples of his work (and some from where we were getting married), and as soon as we saw just a couple of photos, we knew he was a fantastic photographer.
We then met Nigel for our pre-wedding shoot at Bolton Abbey. If anyone is debating whether to do this (and honestly we were slightly dreading it as we didn’t know what to expect), we 100% recommend doing it. It gave us a chance to meet and get to know Nigel, and vice versa. It made us feel a lot more comfortable on the wedding day, plus it was a nice day out too!
For the wedding day itself, Nigel and Richard both arrived about 10.30/11ish, and stayed all day, well past the first dance. Nigel has a great eye for some photo opportunities, and so many you don’t even realise he took. He made us all feel so at ease, and both Nigel and Richard were just part of the wedding party! It was one of the best days of our lives, and everything was captured perfectly. Nigel helped direct when and where to take photos, but without overdoing it / imposing on anything we were doing. It was a really nice balance. Plus, for some photos of me and David, it gave us some time just the two of us. Plus when it was the group photos, Nigel was able to gather up the troops well, and get us all in the right place, quickly and efficiently (it was a bit cool and windy on the day!). In addition to this, Nigel captured photos of our fireworks in the most perfect way – captured just at the right moment. This was important to us, and we were not disappointed (infact the photo we got was better than expected!!).
We have been very fortunate to be able to see snapshots of photos very quickly after the wedding, as well as an AMAZING video that summarises our wedding day photos, and it honestly captures all the key moments so well. It made us so emotional and helped us to reminisce about the day watching the video.
I thought our photos and video would be good from what I had seen from Nigel’s other photos, but they are better than I could have imagined. We didn’t get to go away on our honeymoon, and getting to see our photos and wedding video really did cheer us up and remind us of what an amazing day we had. I’ve also had sooooo many people from the wedding, and those that weren’t at the wedding, comment on how good the photos have been, and how good Nigel was on the day too. Massive thank you Nigel for everything on our wedding day, and also before and after too. The service is top notch, and it’s as though we knew you before!
If anyone is in doubt about who to book as their wedding photographer, don’t look any further.
