    Very happy

    Fantastic photos, captured the day just as we wanted, relaxed, unstaged and and made everyone feel completely at ease. Simon meet with us beforehand and talked through the plan for the day, he caught some great moments from the day and showed us and our guests in their best light, we are very happy with the results.

    Fantastic natural photos

    My husband and I were very impressed with simon, he did an amazing job and we have fantastic photos.
    From the minute I spoke to Simon on the phone to when we met on the morning of my wedding I knew I made the right choice. Simon is very friendly, approachable and made everyone feel comfortable.
    He was great from the minute he got to the house to do some pre-wedding shots, at the church and the venue until the first dance. we have some fantastic natural photos of the bridesmaids, best men and my husband and I together.
    Many people at the wedding commented on how good he was.
    We can’t thank him enough for giving us amazing memories that we can cherish forever.
    As such I highly recommend Simon Cardwell.

    No wonder he's won awards!

    Hello,
    As many people know, your wedding day can be as equally stressful as it is special. Simon made sure our days was above and beyond special and helped capture memories we'll have for the rest of our lives. The best attribute a photographer can have is skill. I can say without any hesitation, Simon's eye for a great shot, candid photos and photo editing are the best I've seen. Not only this but his professionalism is off the charts. He's polite, punctual and knowledgeable on all things wedding related (photos and otherwise)! This was even more impressive being our wedding took place in the States.

    Family and group pictures were run efficiently and being our wedding was on the larger side, this was much easier said than done. His direction was very clear, precise and he was able to make real-time decisions in the moment without hesitation which made for some amazing shots. It's quite unbelievable it's just Simon and not an entire crew helping him out - No wonder he's won awards!

    By the night's end, our family and friends considered Simon one of our own. We're so very thankful we were able to find him. He's the best.

    The whole experience was brilliant

    We are over the moon at the photographs that Simon took of our wedding. They are far better than I had ever hoped for especially as my husband and I don’t like our photo being taken. From first contact to receiving the photos the whole experience was brilliant, Thankyou Simon!

    Thank you for the review Nicola, we had a great day in York walking around taking photographs.

    Truly a wonderful experience

    We were lucky enough to work with Simon on our wedding day and I could not have asked for more beautiful and unique photos. He had a perfectly timed game plan, which we were so grateful for on a whirlwind of a day. Truly a wonderful experience and I hope everyone is lucky enough to have the same. We will forever cherish the photos Simon took.

    Your wedding day is probably the most important day of your life to capture for the future. Simon not only took wonderful photographs that we will cherish forever but managed to do so in a way that ensured the day always felt as if it was ours. The memories wouldn't be the same without them & we would highly recommend him to anyone.

    We could not have asked for a better photographer for our Wedding Day! We wanted a relaxed day without the pressure of traditional staged wedding photos. Simon was calm & relaxed throughout the day & managed to capture our wedding in the style we wanted. We would highly recommend Simon as a wedding photographer & we love our informal, natural & modern photographs! Thank you very much.

    We are so pleased we had Simon as our photographer! We had no idea what to look for or expect from a wedding photographer but we were really lucky to end up with Simon. His photographs are excellent and he's really easy to get along with. We really couldn't recommend him highly enough!

    Simon did our wedding day and did a fab job. Myself and the groom were really worried about the photos on the day as we both weren't keen on posing for them, however, Simon was brilliant and made us feel at ease at our first meeting. On the day we never even new he was in the background and was great doing the family photographs.

    From the first time we met Simon to receiving our wedding album, Simon was the complete professional. We very much wanted our photo's to have a relaxed feel and that is exactly what we got. Simon understood what we wanted and delivered unique, timeless photos that really captured the essence of our day. Simon managed to stay in the background but was at all the pivotal moments. Our USB was waiting for us at home when we returned from honeymoon and seeing so many special moments again and some for the first time let us relive our most special day again. The quality of the album was first class and the photo layout excellent.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his outstanding work.

    Lesley & Richard, Taormina, Sicily

    Taormina, Sicily July, 2013, Simon took our wedding photos, the only formal photos were the ones we asked for the rest were all natural "in the moment" shots, they are amazing and we felt very lucky to have him capture our special day. Simon blends with the guests and doesn't stand out as "the photographer" Amazing! Would highly recommend!
