Highly recommend!

Simon was super professional from start to finish throughout the planning and on our big day in December! He is great fun to have around on the day, got everyone smiling and laughing for the photos, and a big thank you to Rebecca who captured some beautiful candid shots. The photos are more stunning than we could have ever imagined and Simon was so skilful at making the most of the lighting and the location.

Fantastic, friendly, fun!

Would highly recommend Simon and Rebecca- they were everything we asked for and more! :) They’re perfectionists. Simon really knew how to work our guests, allowing the formal group photos to be more enjoyable and Rebecca discreetly snapped away taking the candid shots. Their contact before our big day was super and I felt in really safe hands with them, particularly as they regular worked at Woodlands so I knew they would know the venue inside out. The photos they took are gorgeous, we’re really impressed with them! Thanks so much guys, you’re the best💛

Outstanding

Simon & Rebecca

What do we say about the wonderful creative Simon and his amazing Rebecca… I mean who lays on the floor in rain, stands on a ladder and gets in the most awkward positions to capture THE MOST AMAZING STUNNING PHOTOS… you have a true talent and know just how to make the bride and groom comfortable throughout the day…

We did it Simon and Storm Babet didnt stop us… as we got the money shots in the pouring rain…

We can’t thank you enough for how you helped to create and capture the day…. And your vibe with the crowd was something else!!!

What’s a bloody day….. it was and will forever be our favourite day EVER!!!

Lot of love and Thanks
Mr & Mrs Barker x

Amazing photographers

As we ‘got married twice’ I feel qualified to say with confidence that SKL photography are the best. We first met Simon in September 2022 when planning our October 2023 wedding. We immediately bonded with him and he even made my unexcitable husband excited about having our pictures taken. Due to a change of circumstances, we legally married on New Years Eve 2022. I called Simon at the start of December to ask if he was free for an hour to take some pictures and amazingly he was. Simon and Rebecca came to our legal ceremony and took some amazing pictures of our ‘brief but beautiful ceremony’ with only 14 guests. We’ll treasure those pictures forever. 9 months later, Simon reminded us we had a free ‘engagement’ shoot so we reluctantly booked a visit to a local field. Immediately, Simon put us both at ease, took some amazing pictures of me and my husband and even got some bonus ones of our gorgeous fur baby. We talked him through what we wanted on our day (October 2023) which was basically some photos with family and friends at the town hall, some pictures of us two and the pup in the park then some nice candid pics of our larger family and friends at our ‘reception’. On the day, it was cold and windy and we felt bad for dragging our guests for photos when we were already married but yet again, SKL photography got us in the right frame of mind and we have some amazing group shots. The pictures in the park are so lovely and romantic (unlike us!) and we’re glad we let Simon take the lead on this as the lighting is amazing and we’re so happy with the way he’s taken the pictures. The reception photos are exactly what I asked for: candid and authentic with pictures of all my favourite people. To top it all off, when we collected our photos (we opted for a digital package) they came in a cute little box with an SKL usb - another personal touch which just sums up Simon and Rebecca to a tee. We’ve loved working with Simon and Rebecca for over a year now and should we choose to marry again - they’ll be the first supplier I book!

Absolutely Fantastic

We can not recommend SKL photography enough....absolutely brilliant from start to finish. From first meeting Simon and Rebecca we knew we wanted them to do our wedding.
The pre wedding shoot was lovely and fun to do, we even took our daughter and got some lovely family photos.
On the wedding day itself, both Simon and Rebecca worked so hard and got us some brilliant photos.
My Grandma was supposed to be at our wedding but on the day was too ill so we went to her at her house, Simon and Rebecca followed us and got some photos, nothing was too much trouble.
We have just had our photos back and they are truly fantastic....100% recommend these guys.

You won’t find a better photographer

My brother used SKL 5 years ago, followed by my cousin a couple of years ago. We’re practically family now! 😆 What a fabulous couple. Many people worry about their photographer but we can guarantee you’ll have no worry at all with SKL Photography. Simon will make you feel so at ease with many laughs along the way. We had such a great day with them and our guests commented how fabulous they were too. Within a day we had received a few shots from our day and they were beautiful. If you are looking at their profile now wondering whether to message them, then do it because you have just come across the best photographer around.

Amazing! Can not recommend enough!

We absolutely loved SKL photography.

The communication was super fast and Simon was great at responding!

When our pre wedding shoot was due, we had just had a baby (6 weeks old) and Simon was so accommodating when arranging the shoot. We did have to change the date due to lack of sleep by me one time lol and he was so understanding. He even took a couple of pics with our baby and us which we absolutely loved!

On to the wedding day…
Simon and his wife brought such good energy and vibes to the day! He took all the pictures you would want, we didn’t need to ask for them as he was on the ball. All the guests loved him too.

We didn’t have to wait too long for our pictures after despite it being peak wedding season. The pictures are all amazing!

We can’t wait to get our album now.

Cannot recommend these guys enough!

Amazing wedding photos

We used SKL photography for our wedding photos in April. We are over the moon with them! Simon and Rebecca did such an amazing job coordinating the day. The photos are exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be more pleased.
From our pre-wedding shoot, to the day itself , Simon and Rebecca kept us well informed and again took amazing photos.

Thank you again!

Fantastic service and photos

Where can I start with this review. I have so many wonderful things I can say about the fantastic Simon and Rebecca. Firstly from the beginning we had easy communication about what was on offer and what we wanted. We had a ‘pre wedding shoot’ at the venue about a year before our wedding to break the ice and see just how our picture would turn out on the big day. Although those pre wedding shoot pictures were lovely, they didn’t have a patch on what our wedding photos actually looked like! I’ve never been so excited to see photos in my life, the talent, hard work and dedication of Simon and Rebecca are second to none. I can honestly say they are the friendliest, most hard working, enthusiastic and passionate people we had working at our wedding. On our wedding it poured down, all day, literally! Until maybe 6/7pm… that didn’t stop us having fantastic photos, including Simon getting down on the ground to take the perfect photos! I would recommend SKL photography to absolutely anyone, especially for your wedding. I know for a fact you won’t be disappointed, thank you again Simon and Rebecca, you have given us wonderful photos to look back on for years to come. Xx

Amazing! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We booked Simon and Rebecca for our 15th year vow renewal on 17.09.22. What a lovely couple! We would highly recommend these guys to everyone. The whole experience, from the very first email has been absolutely fantastic! They made our day so easy and stressfree. They are very professional, friendly, so easy to get along with and also fun. All or guest thought they were great too! All our photos are simply beautiful, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Best decision made. Thank you so much for everything Simon and Rebecca.
Lots of love
Lisa and Dave xx

We couldn't recommend SKL Photography enough!

Simon and Rebecca were absolutely fantastic from the point of booking, right through to providing our final edited photos. We personally felt that the photographer was one of the most important parts of our day - capturing the moment for us to remember for years to come - and wow did we choose right! We felt immediately in safe hands, had great communication from booking through to the day and literally couldn't be happier with the final photos. A *real* side bonus that we didn't consider, having a team means you get the "candid" photos that would otherwise be impossible. Thankyou again both - you guys rock! Hayley & Guy x
