    A fantastic choice for a memorable day!

    We had Big Day Weddings for our wedding photographers. We really recommend David and Joanna!

    We had an initial call with David and we really enjoyed his relaxed but professional approach. We then had an engagement shoot with him a couple of months before which was really fun and made the actual photography on the wedding day feel much easier and more natural!

    On the wedding day they did a brilliant job throughout, and David was great engaging with our guests and making them laugh which made for such happy photos!

    You could also really tell that Big Day are very used to shooting weddings in urban environments. David has a good eye for spotting areas that would make great photos both around the venue and when we went out during the wedding day as a couple to do some photos by the river in London.

    We’re both so happy with all the photos and our guests really enjoyed them as well.

    We definitely recommend Big Day Weddings for your wedding photography!

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Joao and Caroline, thank you so much for the review :-) What a fantastic day we all had by the Thames and some historic and hidden local spots along the way! Such a pleasure to document your day and spend time with you both and your uplifting enthusiastic wedding guests. Great choice of venue and overall approach to your special day too. We would like to wish you the both very best for your future together!

    Beautiful Photos!

    From our initial conversation with David we knew he would be brilliant. He listened to all our ideas, made loads of helpful suggestions, had lots of local knowledge around the venue and good spots for photos, and filled us with confidence. On the day he was superb - he was chatty and friendly with our guests, made everyone feel very at ease and expertly arranged the group shots. He somehow managed to be everywhere at once and capture every moment of the day while also being completely unobtrusive and blending into the background. The photos themselves were wonderful; so many to choose from, natural and colourful and exactly like we wanted. We are so grateful to him for producing such beautiful photos, but also for being such a fun part of the day and cannot recommend his services highly enough! Joanna & Tom

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Joanna and Tom, thank you so much for the review! What a fantastic day we had at the most quirky and impressive private mansion I've ever seen, your glorious Council Chamber wedding at Islington Town Hall, and the wonderfully atmospheric Cutty Sark. Wishing you both health and happiness for many years to come.

    Brilliant!!

    David and Kristine were so professional and amazing to get along with. They kept us so calm when things weren’t going to plan. They were so friendly with the every person on the day and made it a very personal experience. We even got a call from David a few days before the wedding to see how we were and if we had any questions. Without a doubt I will be recommending Big Day Weddings to anyone getting married!!!

    Thank you so much David and Kristine!

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Thanks Dani, it was such a pleasure to photograph your beautiful outdoor wedding, to meet your friends and families and document the great time had by all! Bushy Country Club has never looked so good or probably seen such an exuberant reception party :-) You both looked great at your engagement shoot at Alexandra Palace, but you absolutely smashed it on the wedding day!

    A photo shoot to remember!

    We booked David and Joanna for our wedding. During the engagement shoot he was very experienced, warm and great fun which put us at ease. We laughed a lot and worked well together. Because we both are deaf it was good practice for David how to interact with us as we can't hear what he is saying behind the camera. He was very adapting. It certainly was a photo shoot to remember and the pictures look great. Very urban, great vibes. Can't wait for the wedding!

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Hi Damaris, thanks for the lovely review, had a great time with you both in Shoreditch, and we can't wait for your wedding too! It was so great that you were open minded to various photography ideas, and we were able to create good chemistry together. Clapton Country Club here we come!!

    Very happy

    We were very happy with Big Day Weddings.
    David and Joanna listened to everything we said and put our imagination into pictures. They were pro-active in making suggestions but ensured we had all the pictures we wanted.
    Apart from formal pictures they were hardly noticed yet they managed to capture many wonderful informal pictures.
    I thoroughly recommend them.

    Hi Stephen thank you so much for the review, it was such a pleasure to document your lovely wedding to Michele at Claridges. We wish you both all the very best for the future. David and Joanna

    Amazing photography - put as at ease immediately

    David & Joanna made our wedding day extremely special and fun! We had a great time with them on the day and our photos are incredible! Would highly recommend.

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Thank you Stella, we had a great time with yourself, Michael, and your friends and families documenting your fantastic day at Old Marylebone Town Hall and The Ivy. Well chosen, two iconic London venues! Wishing you both the very best for the future.

    Superb wedding at The Goring

    David & Joanna are a fabulous team. We can highly recommend them !

    You only get one chance to capture the most important day of your life - David & Joanna did this and went above what we expected ! The Goring is a very special place & we were fortunate to be married here plus capturing the most stunning photographs.

    At one point It felt as though they were guests and they made you feel at ease yet capturing magical moments without you even realising it. All of the photos are simply superb !

    We can highly recommend David & Joanna !…you can rely on quality & very good value for money and above all honesty & reliability

    Thank you for making our special day just that !

    Louise & Sunjay xx

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Thank you Louise and Sunjay! Such a great couple deserved a truly great venue, and that's what you got with The Goring, one of very favourites to work in. A truly memorable time, with a truly memorable couple. We're so delighted we could add to your big day. Wishing you both the very best for the future :-)

    Best choice!

    We hired David to be our wedding Photographer and so happy we did!
    He was so careful to find out what we wanted for our pictures and made the whole process easy and fun :)
    David is so much fun! We loved his sense of humor and the guests had the same impression. My husband and I are not into taking photographs, but David was so nice and easy on us (he is a try professional!). Plus he managed to get amazing pictures of us and all the guests. We are so incredibly pleased with our photographs too. Thanks for being so lovely David, thanks for being part of our wedding, and thanks for the beautiful pictures of our most special day. You're the best!

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Wow Carolina, what a lovely review, thank you so much!!! It was a great pleasure photographing yourself and Joe in Twickenham on your wedding day, and also getting to taste a bit of Brazilian culture too! I would like to wish both you and your families all the very best for the future. I love doing the smaller more intimate weddings on my own, and yours was no exception! I'm available for after party in Rio De Janeiro too.....

    Fantastic Energy and Results

    Dave was fun, energetic and willing to go the extra mile to get that unique shot. He made it feel more like a rolling stone photo shoot than just a simple wedding. The results are fantastic, it's so great to have so many awesome shots of our wedding. Highly recommend.

    Amazing wedding photographers!

    After trawling through dozens of photographers for our wedding, we chose David and Joanna and were not disappointed. We were attracted by their style and the bonus of having two photographers to ensure all angles were covered. We booked David and Joanna immediately after our first phone call enquiry - there was no need to keep looking.

    David’s humour as well as knowledge and professionalism made us feel at ease. We felt that David’s relaxed and humorous personality suited our personalities and that of our family and friends. We wanted a relaxed, family atmosphere and felt David and Joanna would suit that perfectly.
    We had an amazing engagement shoot at Alexander Palace. David gave us valuable tips for taking the perfect shot which we used on our wedding day. The photos were beautiful!

    Communication with David and Joanna was excellent. We had a call with David before the wedding to discuss all details of the day including the schedule and any specific shots we wanted. David brought up things about the day that we hadn’t even considered which helped us to make sure our day ran smoothly (we’ve never planned a wedding before so it was great to get insight from someone who has been to so many!).

    On the wedding day, David and Joanna didn’t disappoint. They were professional, timely and brought their humour and friendly personalities. When appropriate e.g. during the service, David and Joanna were discreet and nonintrusive. When needed, David and Joanna did a great job of rounding up family and directing group shots. We’ve seen some preview shots and are they are beautiful! We can’t wait to see the others. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David and Joanna! Thank you for helping to make our day special and to run smoothly!

    Thank you Sam it was a lovely day at St George's Cathedral Southwark and Belair House in Dulwich. We wish yourself and Marcus all the very best for the future. David and Joanna

    In a word..... just incredible

    We booked Big Day Weddings (David and Joanna) for our wedding in August this year. From the moment we met them we knew we had a good match, having met other photographers who didn’t seem interested in us at all just where we were getting married and if the pictures would win them awards!! With David and Joanna, they put us both at ease and we got on like a house on fire. Their packages were also really good and it was no nonsense, they listened to what we were after and shared their ideas; they were really knowledgeable about the area we got married and knew all the places to go to get some really amazing shots. On the day they worked their socks off and it shows as the pictures are out of this world and better than anything we could have wished for or imagined. They had a great rapport with us and our guests so managed to get the best out of us all- even me the camera shy bride but by the end of the day I felt like a professional!! Thank you again David and Joanna and I can promise you won’t be disappointed if you book these guys !!!

    Great and fun photographers!

    Where do we start? Thank you so so much! You've captured our day beautifully! Going through the photos have helped us re-live it all over again! Every single photo is shot to perfection, great angles and extremely clear with great colour! We loved all the special effects and filters you've put on too, especially the one with Kym "showering" herself! :) You have captured all the special moments, especially the ones that went very quickly - such as our dip towards the end of the first dance (as we couldn't hold that position for long! :)
    We absolutely loved working with you both, you've made us feel at ease behind the camera, right from the moment we did our engagement shot. It really helped us relax during the day. David you have a great way with making people laugh and have fun! We had many comments from our guests on what "cool" and "fun" photographers we had at our wedding. It was great to see everyone else was having a great time with us too.
    Thank you again! We've already recommended you on to a couple that are looking for great photographers at their wedding!

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Thanks Kym and Jamie, fantastic day at Stoke Place, fantastic couple, and that shower shot is sure to live long in the memory. All the very best for the future!

    Absolutely incredible!!

    From the start David and Joanna were absolutely brilliant. We arranged an engagement shoot in October 2016 to meet David and try to shake off some of our pre-wedding photoshoot jitters... we honestly couldn't have felt more comfortable on both the engagement shoot and our wedding day. David and Joanna really went out of their way to support and advise us and helped us relax into the experience. We have so many beautiful shots - we really are spoilt for choice! I was so nervous about the pictures but they are just stunning. David and Joanna capture both posed and natural shots between them which makes for a gorgeous collection to remember your special day. I have, and will continue to, recommend them to family and friends as they just seem to have the golden touch!! We have had so so many compliments on our photos and to make it all even better David sent them over to us really quickly. Flawless!

    To David and Joanna: We're so lucky to have found you and I know many more brides and grooms will continue to benefit from your talent and passion!!! Thanks so so much for everything x Dani and Phil Smith

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    What a lovely review - thank you so much! It's reading this kind of feedback that makes the memories of your special day even more special for us too. All the very best to you both and your families for the future. David and Joanna

    WOW photographs!

    Having looked at a range of photos by photographers around the London area, Big Day Weddings really stood out for us. We loved the colours, the style and the artistic nature of the images they captured. We didn't want to miss out on anything during the day and didn't like the idea of standing for fussy formal photos when there was so much fizz to get back for!!! Their more relaxed but professional style really suited us.

    Jo and David were absolutely amazing throughout the day and leading up to it. Due to distance it wasn't possible to meet up before hand but we had an in depth chat on Skype about what photos we wanted and what we wanted to capture from the day, which pretty much mirrored their thoughts. That was so helpful and they did exactly what we'd discussed!

    Knowing how amazing their photos are from their website, we were so excited about seeing ours for the first time. They are absolutely amazing!!! The venues look spectacular and all of our guests look fantastic on all of them, which is making it very difficult to choose....

    We really can not recommend them enough.

    Thank you so much for doing so wonderfully!!!

    Jo and Mike x

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Jo and Mike, thank you so much for a truly lovely review. It was a real delight to work with both of you on the day, such positive fun filled people. Mike your speech in the evening will live long in the memory! Just so anyone reading this knows we will mention your venues which were St Paul's Cathedral and Skinners Hall in central London. All the best for the future for you and your families. David and Joanna

    Absolutely fantastic

    ‘Absolutely fantastic,’ sums up our photography experience. Our photos are stunning and not only do we have an eclectic mix of backdrops, we could also alter our photos to crop and add a filter, making our storybook just perfect. David is humorous and very patient and went above the call of duty to ensure every moment of our day was captured. Joanna, caught all the shots we were not around to see, so when we got all of our photos we felt like we hadn’t missed a thing. I would highly recommend Big Day Weddings to anyone who asks and cannot thank David and Joanna enough for their professionalism and creativity. Thank you from Hannah and Mat Marchant.

    Big Day Weddings's reply:

    Hannah and Mat thank you so much for your review. It was a great pleasure to work with you both at one our favourite venues Fanhams Hall, and a lovely wedding day all round. All the very best for the future. David and Joanna
