Just Incredible

We were truly fortunate to have Nigel as our photographer at our wedding in Greece last summer. We had a video call beforehand and other chats throughout to get it just right.

He documented an entire weekend; shots of us on the beach, the ceremony and the partyafterwards. Nigel is completely unflappable and managed to put everyone at ease.

The results are superb and reflect the wonderful time we all had. The photographs reveal inner moments and memories to be cherished years from now.

On This Day

Our civil service and reception took place at Gordon Rameys London House restaurant. Ours was an intimate affair, with 20 guests. The photographer was great as he took all the photos whilst being at the scene, but not being seen. Guests were not asked to pose; exactly as we had requested of Nigel. A patient and flexible photographer, Nigel has an eye for detail. He captured the scene and clicked the shutter to catch true moments, holding them still; every time we look at the photos we want to be there again.

Great photographer

Nigel was a pleasure to work with. He had a very relaxed nature and followed our brief for natural and relaxed photos. Great photos, great value.
