    Beautifully unique photography

    2020 was a weird year to get married. We had changed venues and guest lists several times and ended up with a small intimate affair for both given the circumstances. Having seen Adrian's work on his websites, I was determined to keep him as part of the plan. He did not disappoint. Adrian is a fantastic photographer, he captures natural moments beautifully. I was worried he would find our wedding less fancy than his usual but he captured the beauty within our very small, London affair with an obvious passion. Our guests thought he was amazing and our photos could not have been better. I am so grateful to have found The Studio Without Walls.

    Hi Alice,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review it was very kind of you and is very much appreciated.

    It has been a difficult year for everyone and I was so relieved for you both that your wedding could go ahead and even though things were a little downsized it was a joy to meet you all and photograph your day.

    Wonderful photographer, wonderful photos!

    Adrian was such a warm yet unobtrusive presence on the day, and he delivered some truly great photos! He has a real eye for fun and whimsical photos but also captures the emotions of the important moments of the day, often without you even realising he is there. Would very warmly recommend.

    Amazing Photographer - Amazing Photos!

    Having searched though many photographers websites and their albums we could not settle on a photographer that we felt would deliver the natural informal images, as well as the artistic angles with creative use of light. Until we found The Studio Without Walls on Hitched! Adrian was so calm and relaxed, I didn't even notice him a lot of the time while I was busy with my bridesmaids getting ready. Yet he was there to capture so many photos that I didn't even see him taking and they are absolutely stunning shots. He was so polite and friendly, mingling in with our guests and then taking pictures of around our venue that without him we never would of got. The formal photos outside where done with ease and he gathered us together expertly and advised on positioning to deliver some fantastic family photos. The photographs that he took of just us are also stunning. His eye for detail and instructions on how to pose created some fabulous artist modern pictures that we cannot wait to get printed. If you are looking for a photographer that can do all this, book him! you will not be disappointed - Thank you Adrian, Love Mr & Mrs Hardwick xx

    Hi Kerry,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review......I have been left rather blushing !!
    I am always a little reluctant to ask for reviews as everything you buy these days is followed up with a request to send in a review so I am so grateful to you for such lovely words.
    I hope the photos print our well, the on-line printers seem to be a little better quality than some of the high street outlets....... If you do have any problems just let me know and I will send some along.....
    Thank you again !!

    Standing Ovation

    Adrian was the photographer we chose for our wedding on 6th June 2021.

    There was just something about The Studio
    Without Walls that stood out from the others. We made the right decision. Adrian - self assured and calm, making the arrangement process stress free.

    On the day of our wedding, all his experience came through, we didn’t have to worry about a thing!
    Adrian produced some magical photo shots which we will treasure forever.

    Thank you for capturing our special day.

    Fantastic Wedding Photographer - Highly Recommended

    We had an incredible experience with Adrian and would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Not only did Adrian find time to slot us into his busy calendar last minute, but he also guided us through every step of the preparation process and helped us with our own plans to videotape the wedding on the day. He is prompt in all of his responses and will happily work with you to bring your vision to life, even if your plans change (due to COVID restrictions) like us. Moreover, he was incredibly understanding of the challenges presented by COVID and made us and our guests feel safe by maintaining a safe distance throughout the event and wearing a mask at all times.

    And the photos Adrian took are fantastic! He captured the day perfectly with the right mix of candid shots and staged photos. With his calm, friendly demeanor he made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and gave us lots of useful tips for posing in the staged photos.

    We received the photos shortly after the wedding, they were well edited and easily accessible. You'll receive both an online link, and a USB drive with all of the photos in color and black and white.

    Book Adrian while you can - you will have a wonderful experience with him.

    Truly stunning photographs

    I would highly recommend The Studio Without Walls. Adrian makes you feel so relaxed, in fact at times you had no idea he was there. He beautifully captured our coastal wedding and took the time to review the local area before the wedding day. The photographs will also produced quickly which is what every bride would want.

    Fantastic!

    Adrian photographed our wedding on 14th July in the Midlands and we are delighted with our photos. We deliberated long and hard about choosing the right photographer as neither of us are particularly keen on having our photo taken. We could not be happier with the service that we received. Adrian was incredibly responsive and helpful to any queries that we had in the led up to the wedding. He blended in to our wedding seamlessly and so many of our guests commented on how fantastic and unobtrusive he was! We wanted to avoid prolong periods of staged photos and Adrian had managed to get all of the groups done in about 15 minutes only! Adrian got the photos to us promptly and we are overwhelmed by the fantastic images that he has captured. He has managed to capture so many tiny details of our day without us even noticing. The documentary/natural style of Adrian's photographs really show our day as we remember it! If you are thinking about booking Adrian for your wedding day then you will not be disappointed!!!! Thank you so much, Adrian!

    Amazing photographer

    Absolutely AMAZING photographer. Adrian was great start to finish. Barely knew he was there, so conscientious in the way he operates. We have so many wonderful photos, lots of people said to us on the day how much they liked him and have been astounded by the quality of what we got back! Couldn't recommend him enough, thank you again :)

    Incredible! Over the moon!

    Adrian's work is out of this world, I can't express enough how happy I am with the photos he took for our wedding. From when I first booked until I received the photos he has been brilliant. Very reliable and an amazing photographer. We had the usual organised photos taken which are incredible, then throughout the day, he was popping up in places taking natural photos, the great thing is, you didn't even know he was there. I highly recommend Adrian, he is worth every penny and more! There are soo many pictures, it's hard to decide which ones to choose to print, they are just all amazing!!!
    Thank you again for everything :)

    Absolutely beautiful Candid Photos

    Neither my husband nor i wanted to spend large amounts of our day posing for photos however we were concerned that we wouldn't land up with that many photos of us an our family. Adrian was absolutely fantastic - he captured so many beautiful candid photos of our freinds and family and the two of us. We could not be more delighted with our photos. He is incredibly discrete and listened to exactly what we wanted. Thanks again Adrian.

    Just amazing!

    I am so pleased we chose Adrian to photograph our wedding, from the beginning he has always replied to correspondence promptly and professionally, was happy to travel both for a pre wedding meeting and for the wedding itself. When at the wedding he was always there capturing the moment but was not obtrusive, and worked with my husband and I to create some lovely group shots and then portraits of the two of us. Then our photos were available promptly after the wedding! I cannot recommend him highly enough :) x

    Fantastic - Discreet but captured every moment perfectly!

    I cannot praise The Studio Without Walls and Adrian enough for his work on our wedding day. When we met prior to the wedding we discussed the style of photography we wanted, and this was un-posed, natural photographs of our guests and our day. Adrian did not disappoint. He was friendly and relaxed, and he was very discreet all day but the moments he has managed to capture are simply stunning! He always promptly replied to correspondence, explained the process clearly and understood exactly what we wanted from the word go. I will definitely use him again if I need a photographer for a special event and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a professional photographer who listens to his clients and delivers beautiful moments captured forever!

    Amazing!

    Narrowed choosing a wedding photographer down to three and really pleased I made the right decision. From the initial contact Adrian was prompt, chirpy and honest. Excellent value for money our guests commented how personable and friendly he was on the day. He has a very natural approach to taking photos and this was one of the reasons why I chose him as his albums were simply stunning! In addition to this he sent the online link within 5 days! Perfect when you are still buzzing after the wedding and eager to we the pictures. I would recommend Adrian Neal to anyone looking for someone professional, good value for money and after natural photos. He captured the essence of our day to the fullest. Excellent job!!

    Really fantastic!

    From our first meeting with Adrian we were so impressed with how friendly and relaxed he was, although obviously very passionate about what he does. We got on so well with him during our first discussions, and also at the 'engagement shoot' we did with him about 6 months before our wedding. This was fantastic for us as we are not the most natural posers, but Adrian was so understanding and helpful, and the pictures turned out to be amazing and gave us confidence for the actual day.
    During the wedding itself Adrian guided us through the whole process and again, couldn't have been more unobtrusive and relaxed, although helped us to get all the photographs that we wanted without taking us away from our guests for too long. All our friends and family said how lovely he was and he really was a fantastic person to have around.
    The proof was in the actual photographs which turned out to be truly superb! I was so amazed that he was able to make us look so good and to really capture the warmth and happiness of the day. As well as the excellent posed shots there are some really gorgeous impromptu ones which really help us to re-live the day when we looked through them.
    Adrian really was the perfect photographer for our wedding and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. I really mean it when I say that any couple would be very lucky to have Adrian as their wedding photographer.
