Friendly, professional, thinks outside the box

Our wedding was not your normal young couple and big venue.
We're 66/76 wanted a small wedding with our reception at home, yet he made us feel very special and at ease. We wanted lots of natural photos with a few formal. He delivered 100%.
You really did make our day.

Exceptional Talent and Dedication

Neil was an absolute star as our wedding photographer at Hengrave Hall, From the initial consultation to the final delivery of our stunning photos, Neil's professionalism and attention to detail were evident every step of the way. He effortlessly captured the essence of our special day, preserving every precious moment with creativity and finesse. Neil's friendly demeanor put us at ease, allowing us to relax and be ourselves, resulting in authentic and heartfelt photographs that we will cherish forever. His ability to blend into the background while still capturing every significant moment was truly remarkable. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to document our wedding day. Thank you, Neil, for your exceptional talent and dedication!"

Exemplary from start to finish.

Neil was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Everything was well communicated in good time.

We had a meeting at the venue ahead of time , an historic castle with challenging lighting, and also a pre-wedding photo shoot at the same time.

On the day Neil made sure we got all the wedding shots we wanted, plus more. All provided in digital and also fair priced print albums. There were several packages to choose from.

I am delighted at the outcome of the photos, and they perfectly captured our special day. Everyone that sees our wedding album comments on the stunning photography and quality of the printed albums provided with the package.

Neil's work has been impressive enough for us to book both my sisters weddings with him too, a family birthday photoshoot and we have also used Neil for some commercial work too.

Highly recommend.

By far the best choice we made!

We searched high and low for a photographer for our August 2023 wedding. No one came close to Neil. His reviews were amazing, he came highly recommended by a colleague, and once I got in touch his service was out of this world! We met for the first time for our pre-wedding photo shoot. I grew up in front of the camera, but my now-husband was very nervous and uncomfortable. Neil talked us through each pose, showed us a few photos as we went along, and made us laugh naturally! He was incredibly understanding of our 3 year old, who didn't want to cooperate, and still managed to snap a few lovely photos of all of us. The wedding soon came around, Neil was prompt in arriving to the venue and again, made all my bridesmaids comfortable as he snapped photos of us getting ready. He managed to capture beautiful moments throughout our day, and all of our guests who spoke to Neil, informed me of how lovely and friendly he was. He even went the extra mile and edited a select few photos whilst he ate dinner! Neil listened to what I wanted regarding group photos, even got the guests involved with a few cheeky photos that I had no idea about until we received the full package back weeks later. When we received our USB, Neil had produced a lovely keep sake box, with a personalised USB inside. Our photos are gorgeous, and so easy to flip through to view. Family and friends were able to download easily, and we will have our favourites hanging up in our new home. Thank you Neil, for making the happiest day of our lives even that much more special by capturing every moment! Would highly recommend Wedding Photography by Neil Baxter to anyone.

Amazing wedding photographer!

Neil was just great, we had an engagement shoot before hand and the pictures just captured the perfect moments. Me and my husband are not great in front of the camera but he made us feel at complete ease. During the wedding he just fitted in with all the friends and family and no job was too much for Neil. He captured the most precious moments before and after the ceremony that I will treasure forever!

Amazing - thank you so much.

Neil photographed our wedding at Swynford Manor and he was amazing from start to finish. From the initial enquiry to the wedding day itself and all the communication between us, he was always very responsive, friendly, easy to talk to and always willing to help me if I ever had a question or needed support.

Neil made a huge effort to get to know us beforehand, so on the day, he felt like one of our guests and he fits in with everyone very well. Neil also made sure we met beforehand for a pre-shoot and welcomed the idea of joining our son to the day too, which was lovely.

I am actually a bridal makeup artist and work with photographers on a daily basis. Some aren’t so chatty, or may not have such a calming approach and just snap away for the sake of it but Neil is so creative with his work and takes the right photos in the right time and it’s also hard to find someone so natural with the shooting itself. Neil takes photos without you even releasing, which is amazing for couples if they feel a little shy behind the camera, I promise you’ll feel comfortable in his presence and he is great at cracking funny jokes and making you feel comfortable. Neil will cleverly pick up on what you want to do / may not want to do with style photos and never come across as pushy in any way.
His creative work is so clever, which is what makes him stand out and he is really talented but also such a fun and lovely person to have beside you on your wedding day. You spend a lot of time with your suppliers on the day, so it’s very important to find one you both like and feel comfortable spending time with.

Thanks again Neil, I am still so happy I picked you for our day.

Fantastic Wedding Photographer

Neil captured our Wedding beautifully. I personally don't like having my photo taken, but Neil was so calm and organised I was was at total ease, he got shots that I could only dream of. Neil blended in with the wedding party, that many of our guests asked if we were having photos taken. When we received our beautiful Wedding album and USB, we were amazed how natural all the photos looked. A stunning reminder of our perfect day.

Professional, organized and very creative!

A real pleasure having Neil photograph our wedding day. We would highly recommend him to others. Neil really relaxes you, and has great creative ideas to capture the best from the day. We love the colour and black & white options, all delivered in a very thoughtful memory stick and momento box.
Cheers Neil!

Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!

Had the absolute best experience with Neil! The attention to detail, quality and quantity of photos are the best you are going to find. Neil was the first wedding vendor I booked when I got engaged and will highly recommend him to anyone. Barely noticed he was there half the time and have the most amazing memories captured from my day. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5. Don’t even consider it.. just book him for your special day!

Above and beyond

Neil was the photographer for our wedding and I couldn’t recommend him enough. He knew exactly what to do when makeup ended up all over the train of my dress and he coordinated everyone to have pictures taken without any issues whatsoever, getting some absolutely wonderful shots of family, friends, natural pics and also some lovely couple pictures of us which we will treasure forever.
