Amazing Photography!

Can't thank the 1704 enough for our wedding photographs! We had a beachside wedding in Northumberland in September 2023 and Shaun captured our day perfectly.

We filled in a questionnaire prior to our wedding which was a great idea as this meant all the shots we requested in advance were captured on the day, eg various group shots, style of photos etc. We were so pleased that Shaun managed to get all of the photos we requested and more. He was great at assembling our guests to provide the specific photographs we requested but we particularly loved the candid shots he captured throughout our ceremony!

Our guests have all been full of complements at how much of our day Shaun captured despite us requesting only a couple of hour's photography and we would highly recommend booking for longer as we now wished we had done!

Following the wedding Shaun kept in touch with us first of all with a prompt 'sneak peek' of a selection of our photos, and when we received the full online gallery we not only received a timely email directing us to the website, but also received a USB stick with all our photographs just days later in a beautiful presentation box.

Overall we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the 1704 Photography - we will treasure our beautiful photographs forever and have already recommended for future couples! Thank you again for being part of our special day⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely amazing

The whole day from start to finish, photos were taken, I especially loved the more natural photos where they managed to capture other people taking photos on their phones, so 2 photos in one. Nothing was awkward, shame there wasn't any outside pics due to the weather but we made the most of the venue. And I especially love the little gift box and USB stick with everything on! Thankyou so much and I will definitely reccomend yourselves to others :)

Very kind, professional photographer!

Very kind, professional photographer. We’re very grateful that you shared the experience with us. Zoe kept us updated with everything the whole way through. Shaun made us feel very relaxed, being calm and kind with us. The photos are amazing, I was so grateful to be able to include our baby son, and we’ll be able to cherish them forever. Thank you so much for a great day!

Absolutely brilliant!

We couldnt recommend The 1704 enough, in fact we have recommended them to all of our friends and family. Shaun and Zoe were so friendly, helpful and communicative in the run up to the wedding and were an absolute delight to work with. Shaun put us immediatley at ease when we first met him for our 'practice shoot' and was such a calming presence on the big day. All of our guests loved him! We've only seen our practice shoot pictures so far but we were so impressed with them! We're not the most photogenic but Shaun took the time to get to know us and captured us (and our dog) beautifully!

Really made us feel at ease!

Shaun and Zoe were a pleasure to work with for our wedding day! They were very responsive and professional from the onset. As the day grew closer, we got to meet Shaun who massively put us at ease in advance of the big day. We weren't big on posed photos, but he managed to capture some great ones in one of our favorites spots while also giving us time and space to enjoy the moment between ceremony and reception. He captured some great candid moments at the reception as well and even joined us for a pint after! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this professional couple to anyone :)

A true part of our day

1704 were a fantastic company to deal with.

From our initial WhatsApp messages and phone calls we had great discussions of what we wanted and what sort of service they could provide us. While we first asked to avoid the engagement shoot. The explanation of why sold us.

Our engagement shoot was an excellent day where we got to know Sean and set our expectations/ Learn our preferences.

From then there was ample communication and planning.

Sean was happy to roll with some of our different requirements and adapted to our day and plan with 0 issues. He also worked diligently to capture all the important and unique facets of our day.

The photos are fantastic really capturing the vibe and the experience we had, and by the looks of it, the fun had by our guests.

Our sneak peaks arrived in days so we could enjoy some photos on our honeymoon also.

The final presentation box was worth the wait and we cannot wait to share/ use our photos.

Finally the team were excellent, Zoe was prompt ,pleasant and professional in all interactions.

And Sean was a joy to work with, willing to try fun things. Working the room, getting great shots interacting with the party now and the ..and even helping with some last minute rehearsal elements for the groom on the day.

A fantastic company

Amazing from start to finish

Me and my husband were married earlier this year and Shaun and Zoe have managed to capture our perfect day so brilliantly. You underestimate beforehand just how special it is to capture those moments to look back on, the pictures literally took us back to the moments and made us feel the same feelings all over again. We had met Shaun before at our pre wedding shoot, and this helped us relax in the thought that we were not only in good hands but that the quality of the photos would be brilliant.

Both Shaun and Zoe made us feel so at ease the whole day, and our guests too. We were both nervous about the thought of having to pose for pictures, but on the day it didn't feel at all posed, Shaun made it all feel so natural. And this really comes across in all of our photos.

My husband was nervous on the morning of our ceremony and Shaun went out of his way to make him feel calm, and actually into a space of excitement. We have a young daughter and Zoe asked her to help out and made her feel so involved, she was so happy about this and it helped to make sure that she felt like an important part of our day, and that it wasn't just for us but for her too.

It sounds strange to say this, but there are memories we never thought could be captured in a picture, not just the laughs (and some cries) but looks from one another, our guests too. On the day you of course can't take everything in, but the pictures have done that for us. We didn't have a huge ceremony, the guests there were those that are most special to us, those we wanted to be a part of it, and to be able to have those moments captured for life means so much to us both.

It goes without saying, the quality of the service before the wedding, on the day and afterwards was unbeatable and we couldn't recommend The 1704 more. If you are looking for a photographer and videographer for your wedding, I'd urge you to not hesitate to book. Our thanks will always be with Shaun and Zoe for making sure our memories of the day are captured forever.

One wedding, two days!

Two ceremonies, one wedding.
We got married during lockdown .
Shaun made us feel at ease and produced some beautiful photos for us even though we were only a party of 9 there was loads to choose from.
Last year, we were able to have 1st anniversary party as a belated reception and again some fantastic photos for our album.

Amazing right from the start

Shaun & Zoe have been amazing right from booking, yesterday we had our special day & honestly we could not have asked for it to go better in terms of capturing all the moments.

Both Shaun & Zoe were personal with all of our guests and had a laugh with us, we knew there would be a great atmosphere after our engagement shoot but they absolutely outdone any expectations we had, they were always somewhere… capturing all those moments you don’t think you want but actually those are the best to look back on.

They have been one of the best suppliers we have worked with & would recommend them to anyone.
They make you feel so comfortable & join in your day, we have a special memory from our guest book and photobooth pic of Shaun & Zoe, this experience we will never forget. Thank you both for helping create our perfect day, you are both incredible people and we are so happy to have met you both. 🤍 lots of love Mrs & Mrs Cree x
