    A gem of a find!

    Massively recommend Philip Charles Photography, Vicky did our wedding photos and was easy to chat to right from the start. She fitted right in and took loads of amazing photos. Even with my now ‘husband!’ not being a fan of having his photos done she got plenty of great ones we’ll treasure. She also took lots of candids which we love as they captured reactions and moments we didn’t spot ourselves :) Cannot thank Vicky enough, will deffo have you in mind for any future photography needs! :)

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Thank you for your amazing review Sarah, i absolutely loved being part of your day. Your family and friends were so lovely and made me feel so welcome. Love the photos you’ve included, definitely a few of my favourites in there. Keep in touch, Vicky xx

    One of the best decisions we made planning our Wedding

    We selected Philip Charles after our first meeting with Vicky at their Studio. We were greeted with a warm welcome and immediately felt at ease. The service was excellent with everything handled professionally but with a personal and caring touch.
    One touch we appreciated was the helpful advice Vicky made in planning our photographs. Having listened to what we wanted; Vicky was able to make helpful suggestions about what would work well on the day. Her experience helped with the family and group shots ensuring things went smoothly on the day. We got married at an unusual venue which Vicky visited with us beforehand recommending shots that worked brilliantly for us. Thank you for capturing some beautiful pictures for our perfect day.

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you for for the amazing review. It was a lovely day, and the unique venue certainly got the creative ideas flowing. It was a pleasure working with you and Heidi, and all your guests, it's a wedding that I will always remember.
    Thank you again and keep in touch,
    Vicky

    They became our friends.. :)

    We feel like by the end of the last year this amazing couple became our friend as they were with us through the journey of my pregnancy and our wedding... it started with maternity photo shoot that was my first experience with professional photographers but Phil made us feel great and the photos were amazing... a couple of months later when twins were born we did some photos of them and I couldn’t believe how well that all went (sorry for the messy moments Phil) ? and once again we were absolutely amazed by the outcome of the photos... and of course another couple of months later our wedding day... that by that time they felt like our friends.. through us having a laugh and having a good time with them they had made another lot of absolutely amazing photos that we are so grateful for... and at the moment we have moved abroad but when we will be back we definitely will book in for a “catchup photoshoot”.. thank you so much for everything! Una, Ben, Oliver and Harry :)

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Hi Una and Ben,
    We have absolutely loved being part of your amazing journey over the last year, thank you so much for including us. We can't wait to see you all and have a good catch up when you return.
    Take care and look forward to seeing you soon,
    Phil and Vicky xx

    Completely wonderful couple!

    We have used these guys for our wedding, our newborn shoot and been involved with other events our family have used them for as well. They are the nicest most professional couple you could work with and we love, love, love our photos that we will treasure forever!

    They capture up unique, treasured moments with fantastic photos and have created a few beautiful photo albums for us.

    Best wishes, the Shaw-Matthews clan xx

    You will not be disappointed!

    From the moment I contacted Philip Charles Photography, I was instantly put at ease that they would be able to capture and edit the photos of our wedding to our requirements. They responded to my queries with in minutes and was professional at all times.

    Vicky was our photographer for the day and from the moment we had our initial consultation, she filled me with confidence and provided a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

    Vicky helped guide us to create a photo list that meant we would have all the traditional style photos my husband wanted and a personalised couples photoshoot that I wanted. And she captured everything we wanted and more. Vicky was very prompt at editing the photos and getting them back to us.

    The only issue we are having is deciding which photos we want where around our home. Whichever package you go for you will not be disappointed. One of my favourites from our day can be seen below.

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Thank you for the amazing review, it has been a pleasure working with you both and a privilege to capture your special day. Take care and keep in touch.

    Phil and Vicky where helpful, kind and professional and very friendly that I felt I could talk to them about our needs and nothing was to much trouble. They made time to sit and have a chat and put together a package to suit our day.

    On the day you hardly knew they where they apart from the obvious formal shots.They captured many moments that I myself as the bride missed on the day, as the day goes by so fast.

    Wedding Album is beautiful and we will treasure it forever.

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Thank you for the amazing review, Helen, and for choosing us to capture your wedding. It was a pleasure to be part of your day.

    Amazing Photos

    With lockdown we ended up looking fairly last minute for a photographer, luckily they just had a cancellation on the same day we needed and could provide the package we were looking for. (We had from 1 hour before the ceremony to the start of reception, and a large photo album) Vicky was absolutely brilliant very attentive to our needs, captured many moments on our wedding day in scorching weather and even though things ended up running late in the evening she happily stayed and finished taking photos.
    Everyone who has seen our online gallery have all said they look amazing. We love our photo album, it makes us smile every time we look at it. Thank you for everything.

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Thank you for your amazing review Steph, it was an absolute pleasure being part of yours and Adam’s special day. Blimey, it was a scorcher! You did well to survive that heat in your beautiful gown. Thank you to you and your guests for making me feel so welcome. Keep in touch, Vicky x

    Absolutely effortless!

    We hit the jackpot when we came across Phil & Vicky! From the second we met them both we felt relaxed and confident - they were the first photographers we had seen and we booked there and then! We had such a laugh every step of the way. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know them both and have them right beside us on the biggest and best day our lives.

    Brilliant from start to finish!

    Vicky and Phil were wonderful wedding photographers! Their relaxed approach meant that the special time spent getting ready was captured so beautifully without us feeling under any pressure. Our wedding was big and they were so accommodating with our group shots while also taking so many lovely candid photographs too. We are so pleased with our photos and choosing a selection for the album was so difficult!

    Very understanding, relaxed, calming and professional. Perfect experience.

    Fantastic experience!

    We cannot recommend Philip Charles highly enough!

    Vicky has been fantastic throughout the planning process and is always a pleasure to speak to! She did an amazing job of capturing our wedding day - during the ceremony she captured some beautiful pictures without intruding at all.

    Vicky kept control of everything perfectly. She was incredibly organised and efficient - the time we spent taking our pictures just flew by! All of our guests enjoyed taking part in the group shots and commented on how fantastic Vicky was.

    The images Vicky captured are timeless, tasteful and elegant. I know we will enjoy looking back at them for years to come.

    Philip Charles Photography's reply:

    Thank you, Sarah and James, for the amazing review. Your wedding was beautiful and I loved being part of it.

    Keep in touch,
    Vicky

I love weddings!

Every wedding is unique, and I love seeing all the new and different ideas couples have to make their wedding personal to them. Being chosen to capture your most precious day is an honour.

My style of photography is natural and traditional. Documentary style throughout the day, capturing your day as it happens. Whilst also including the traditional group shots (I like to call parent pleasers) and beautiful portraits of the happy couple.
