Fabulous! Truly a wonderful experience!

So impressed by Gillian, her close up photos were fantastic, she was very professional. She took such lovely photos of us all, capturing the personality and uniqueness of each and every one of us! There were such a variety of shots and she took so many natural, fly on the wall photos, which is just what we wanted! She was flexible and listened to what we desired! Gillian also took lovely staged shoots of our two families! We feel so lucky & blessed to have found her! She is such a talented photographer and very reasonably priced! Would highly recommend her. My daughters described Gillian as “phototastic”! Thank you so much for helping us have such a beautiful record of our day wedding. 💗

Gillian was absolutely fantastic! She was flexible and helpful and got lots of beautiful shots of both myself, my husband and our family and friends. She really has exceeded our expectations and her communication was on point. We has some staged photographs but there were loads of natural shots which just enhanced our photography collection.

Absolutely fantastic

Swan photography was our photographer for our wedding August this year (2022) I had made the decision early on that I didn’t want a professional photographer because I am so camera shy and absolutely hate the pressure of posing and being in front of the camera. We met Gillian a few weeks before our wedding date at our chosen venue and she has such a kind, calm, friendly nature she really put my mind at ease and I’m now so pleased we had a photographer. We have some absolutely amazing photos to remind us of our special day. I would highly recommend Swan photography to anybody, nothing was too much trouble and the end result is absolutely fantastic.

Absolutely unforgettable, lovely lady

Gillian photographed our wedding on 17/06/23. Wow what lovely pictures she produced. It was a bit of a rush at the registry office as so many weddings but Gillian was calm and kept us calm and managed to get lots of family pics in and captured the best bits. I would highly recommend this lady. She's professional, lovely and will do anything you ask absolutely brilliant. Gillian thank you once again for capturing our special day and for keeping us calm throughout. X

Perfect photos of your big day!

Gillian (Swan Photography) is very friendly, really puts you at ease. Will do whatever poses you want plus lots of photos when everyone is relaxed. Gillian tweaks some photos to add a beautiful twist to them. She really knows where to put people for the best and most stunning photos. We couldn’t have been happier with all our photos plus we received all the Photos presented in a lovely keepsake. You won’t go wrong if you choose Swan Photography for your big day. We can’t recommend Gillian enough, such a lovely woman, really knows what she’s doing and a very reasonable price.
