Last update: March 2024

Hey there, lovebirds! 📸❤️ I'm Luke, your friendly neighborhood wedding photographer and all-around fun enthusiast! 🎉📷 based in Brackley, Northamptonshire and I shoot weddings throughout Oxfordshire, Warwickshire , Bedfordshire , Gloucestershire , Buckinghamshire , West Midlands , Berkshire and throughout the Cotswolds , but totally happy to travel further too! I love exploring new destinations and venues for weddings, its one of the perks of the job!

Picture this: A guy who can't resist a slice of wedding cake, has a dance move for every beat, and believes that laughter is the secret ingredient to perfect photos. That's me in a nutshell!

I'm all about making your wedding day a blast, filled with laughter, and brimming with love. I'm the guy who'll be there to capture your goofy grins, your heartfelt hugs, and even that epic dance-off between Uncle Bob and Aunt Carol. Every wedding is a unique love story, and I'm here to ensure that your story shines bright through my lens.

When I'm not behind the lens, you'll find me geeking out over the latest camera gear, trying to recreate the perfect pizza at home, or convincing myself that I can dance like no one's watching (even though I know everyone's watching). 💃🕺 But no matter where I am, I'm always thinking about how to make your wedding photos as epic as the day itself.

So, if you're looking for a photographer who's more than just a camera-wielding ninja (though I've got the ninja moves down too), let's chat! Let's turn your special day into a fantastic adventure filled with beautiful memories and, of course, stunning photos. Let's make some magic together! ✨💍📸

Simply Amazing

Oh My Goodness!!!!
How amazing is the box, confetti (such a lovely touch) and most importantly the photographs. We are sitting here with tears in our eyes reliving every second of the day. You have captioned every emotion, smile and laugher and special moment that We will be able to cherish for the rest of our lives. I know I have already said it.. but I will say it again… we cannot honestly thank you enough for the amazing photographs and how brilliant you were on the day. Everyone loved you and you slotted into the day like any other guest which is why we were so unbelievably relaxed around you. You are the best and I would recommend you in a heartbeat. My three sisters will be in touch once the ring is on! Cannot wait for the video now😄😄😄 Love Tara & Alfie xx

Absolutely fantastic - would highly recommend Luke to anyone!

We would highly recommend Luke to anyone – he was fantastic in the lead up to and on our wedding day. During the pre-shoot, he made us feel comfortable and got some fantastic pictures of both us and the dog and really got to know us – this made a huge difference on the day itself.
On the day, Luke fully embraced the chaos of the wedding morning (and our wedding bus!) and fitted in fantastically with both the wedding party and our family and friends. He made sure we got a real range of shots, was great at grabbing us for photos at the right time (making sure we did not miss too much of the party!) and sent through our preview photos on the same day, which are incredible.

Luke hardy - photographer or guest?

From the first time we met Luke at our pre-wedding shoot, he put us at ease and made the whole thing fun and relaxing. At the wedding he blended seamlessly with guests and everyone (even the photo shy teens) were ok with him taking shots. Would recommend highly for his skill and professionalism, but he also is amazing value for money compared with other wedding photographers we looked at.

Amazing!!! Great quality photos and highlight video.

Just want to say a huge thank you to Luke Hardy Photography for capturing our special day. My husband and I got married last December and all of our photos and our highlight video are just perfect! From our very first initial zoom meeting to discuss our ideas, to our engagement/trial shoot, and then to the big day. Luke put us at ease and we had such a laugh and throughly enjoyed his company. All of our guests complemented Luke and how he ‘blended’ in well with the guests and became a friend to all. We would highly recommend Luke to photograph and video your wedding or event. Truly beautiful memories to always look back on. Thank you Luke, Hannah and Matt Robinson x

Made our wedding a fairytale

Luke was key to mine and Harry's day, I couldn't have asked for a more amazing photographer. He was fun, professional and just made our day even more special! We're forever grateful that he was apart of our special day and recommended him to everyone

The best decision you could make for your wedding, would be to book Luke Hardy

I can't recommend Luke highly enough. From the first phone call we had with him we knew we'd made the right decision. Not only are his photos beautiful, he is such a great guy to have around. He made two very awkward people feel very at ease and made us laugh a lot. It was like having a friend at the wedding taking our photographs.

The test shoot was so much fun and he understood what worked for us and what we felt comfortable with. On the morning of the wedding he sorted us both out and made me feel calm whilst quietly taking photos of us all. He even produced a needle and thread when my sister in laws dress ripped.

We couldn't be happier with the photos, he captured the essence of the day from start to finish. The formal ones are just beautiful and he really captured the fun of the party. Hire Luke.

Unbelievable!

Luke is amazing.. He is the calming influence you need on what can be a stressful day, he is accommodating and works around you. His amazing personality shines through and allows you to relax knowing he will capture your special day in ways you would have never expected.

Amazing! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Luke was just incredible!
From start to finish, including new dates through Covid, just honestly a pleasure and we're SO happy we went with Luke.

He made us both feel so at ease, as a couple who hate to be centre of attention thats a real accomplishment! Luke's humour, excitability and pure love and joy in the job he does made it even more special. It was like having another friend there, and he made a real impact on guests who have been singing his praises since the day.

The moments he captured we will treasure forever and we're so so grateful for the memories.

Love Mr & Mrs Jarrett x

Made us feel so comfortable...

Luke was very easy to get on with from the first phone call. Pre wedding shoot was a really great way to get to know him & by day of the wedding we were really comfortable with him and we felt like we'd known him for ages. We were really lucky to have Luke & Rozy all day on the day of the wedding and between they captured some beautiful photos of our day. So pleased we decided to have a wedding video...it's such a wonderful memory of our wedding and brings it back to life when we watch it. Thank you for capturing our special day so beautifully.

Perfect attention to natural detail, without feeling a camera is even there!

Luke photographed our wedding in 2019! We had found him just starting out and we couldn’t of been more happier that we chose him. His attention to detail was second to none and the photos we received were amazing! Without us know he was trialling doing video also! And on honeymoon sent us the best SUPRISE ever of a video we can treasure and now show our little boy!
We still keep in contact with Luke and his brill wife Lucie and have since become great friends! So in my book not only did we have a great photographer we gained great friends for life!
Thanks so much! The Mullans! X
