    Sarah & Lee, Pennard House

    We were over the moon with out photographs from Simon, everything about them was perfect. He captured all of our favourite moments without being obtrusive, and in our couple shots he made us feel completely comfortable and at ease, I think these were some of our best memories from the day. Our families absolutely love the photos, and the slideshow sneak peak made so many people cry! We were amazed at how quickly we got out pictures, and how incredible they were. Thank you Simon, you’re awesome and worth absolutely every penny.

    We hired Simon to take our wedding photos this summer and could not recommend him any higher. Before the day itself he took the time to meet up with us and get to know us on a personal level so we felt totally at ease and comfortable in front of him. The quality of his photos is second to none; we trawled through over 100 wedding photographers’ websites before deciding on Simon, as his photos stood out as being the best. He has great techniques for getting natural and sincere pictures - nothing is staged, and he has an amazing eye for composition. The photos of our day are exceptional - everyone we have shown them to has said they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. They perfectly capture the love and joy of the whole day; we couldn’t be happier with them.

    Simon thank you for capturing our day in a way we could only have wished for! Your photos tell the story of the day perfectly and we will be forever grateful for that.

    Simon’s ability to capture people’s emotions at exactly the right time makes our photos very special. The detail of the day that Simon captured is stunning and the clarity of the photos is fantastic. As well, Simon was very conscious about capturing the uniqueness of our day which makes the photos that much more personal for us.

    Simon was a real pleasure to work with and his natural approach suited us perfectly. As two people who really don’t like the camera, his professionalism, sense of humour, calm and reassuring manner really helped us to relax and enjoy ourselves, which he has documented so effortlessly in our photos.

    All that’s left for us to say is thank you. Simon, thanks for all your time, effort, hard work and support. You are an outstanding photographer and the photographs you took we will always treasure and be incredibly proud of!

    Thank you so much Simon for capturing the most amazing memories of our day! You were brilliant at putting us at ease and managed to get all the shots despite gale force winds and torrential rain! As with the beloved shoot you were great at getting us to relax and enjoy every moment. We love the natural shots and the fact that you caught some wonderful moments without us even knowing!

    Thank you again - I literally cannot recommend you enough to anyone getting married!

    Karin & Tyrone, Bath

    My husband and I got recently married in Bath and we were really lucky to have Simon not only as our photographer but also as a witness. He responded to our ideas with great enthusiasm and from the first point of contact we knew instantly we had made the right choice.

    He captured the story of our day beautifully by making it fun, enjoyable and full of excitement at the same time. Not once did we have to pose awkwardly for pictures or feel uncomfortable in front of the camera as Simon brings true emotions to life! We can’t thank him enough for the amazing pictures that will allow our friends and family to get a glimpse of our special day.

    Not only is he very talented but also a nice person. It was a pleasure to have you around on our special day! Thank you so much!

    We chose Simon as we liked his relaxed informal style and how he managed to capture the feelings and emotions in his pictures. This is exactly what we got and more, every time we look at the photos they bring the day back to life!

    We were impressed with the way in which Simon managed to take the best photo in any situation, using games to make us smile and laugh naturally and always looking for the best light in the area, even if that meant waiting for a cloud to pass! We also liked the fact that the photos were bright compared to some other photographers who opt for more of a ‘gothic’ look. He made us feel comfortable and was very friendly. We also loved the way the photos were received, lovely presentation box and the highlights reel. Wouldn’t think twice before recommending. Thank you so much Simon!

    Simon is amazing. Not only does he manage to capture the most beautiful images, he’s also such a nice guy and genuinely someone you would want at your wedding. We weren’t overly keen on having too many formal or ‘couple’ shots and Simon totally understood that. He has clever ways of nailing photos so quickly that we really maximised the time we had with our guests. From our initial contact all the way through to receiving our photos, he was so professional and friendly and of course the most important thing, we couldn’t be happier with all our photos. Thank you so much!

    I don’t know how to thank or praise Simon enough! Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted - his natural and unique style of photography is absolutely stunning. Not only is Simon a wonderful photographer, he is such a nice guy!! So many of our guests commented on his warm and friendly approach, and how unobtrusive he was.

    I was quite nervous about having the couple shots but Simon made us feel so at ease, we didn’t even notice we were having our photo taken! The photos have captured our day perfectly Simon - we can’t stop looking at them! Thank you so so much.

    Not only do our photos look great, but we can honestly say that the overall experience Simon provided made our wedding even better. He is a genuinely friendly guy who you instantly warm to and was attentive and quick to respond to queries before the wedding, which made organisation a lot more straight forward. Simon made sure he got to know us as a couple and also got us to know a bit more about him. On the day, all our guests warmed to him and commented that he made their time more enjoyable which was a real bonus for us. Ultimately though it comes down to the photos. Not only did Simon share them quickly after the wedding, but he also provided a video montage of photos which told the story of the day. My wife and I must have now watched this video more than 100 times! We really love them and could not be happier with the results. I highly recommend Simon for weddings.

    Look no further - you have just found your wedding photographer right here! Simon is everything you want and need for your big day to be captured perfectly. He’s lovely, charming and really puts you at ease. We loved his relaxed approach to shooting our day - he was able to capture so many of the small, personal details, plus also got some epic views and angles that are so impressive.

    Most importantly he captured the spirit of our wedding and we look like us in the pictures - no staged shots, no false posing - just natural beautiful images.

So much so that we feel we are able to relive each moment again through his stunning photos! Don’t even hesitate to book Simon for your big day! Many thanks again for all that you did for us.

    If you want beautiful, natural photograph’s that really capture the emotion of your wedding day then Simon is your man! He shot my friends wedding where I was a bridesmaid 3 years ago and I’d known since then that I wanted him to be my wedding photographer. He shot our wedding last month and we’ve just had all the pictures back - they’re perfect! Simon is all about catching the actual moments of emotion of your day which was perfect for us as we didn’t want loads of posed photos. We love them!

    Simon is a an absolutely great photographer - he captured every moment of our wedding perfectly. His relaxed style was exactly what we wanted - little posing, more action! We spoke to simon many times in the lead up to the wedding with him also sending us little quizzes to find out more about us both. He was so friendly and approachable at all times and on the day was as inconspicuous as you can be but also very sociable with our guests. We have fantastic visible memories of our day thanks to Simon. Thank you so much!

    Choosing a wedding photographer is an important decision. You need to be confident in the choice you make! After a lot of searching for wedding photographers online and viewing endless amount of websites we came across Simon’s breathtaking photos! We instantly fell in love with his casual, natural approach to capturing the day! He has a very unique style that made us feel at ease and allowed him to capture some very candid moments between us as a couple. On the day he did not let us down. His shots were incredible and every time we look at the photos we feel like we are rewinding time and reliving that very moment! Simon is very professional and kept in regular contact with us throughout the whole process. On the day we felt like he was another friend at our wedding as he blended in effortlessly. We absolutely love our photos and will forever cherish these special moments. Choosing Simon was one of the best decisions we made and we highly recommend him!! Thank you so much Simon!!

    After a Skype consultation with Simon, we were convinced that he was the right wedding photographer for us! His relaxed but professional approach has provided us with the most beautiful wedding photographs. From initial consultation through to shooting on the day, we were impressed with every aspect of Simons service. Being in front of the camera can feel unnatural for anyone and so we took the opportunity to do a beloved shoot prior to our wedding. This gave us a chance to see how Simon worked before our big day. The best thing about Simons photography - he captures natural moments. Moments which we can now look back on and will treasure for a lifetime. We were so pleased with our wedding photos and cannot recommend Simon enough!
