Simply fantastic!

Where to begin… Maryann was a superstar on our wedding day, going above and beyond and helping us with so many little things we did not think of. She absolutely captured the magic of our special day in our amazing photos, such as the emotions everyone was feeling but also capturing details we were too busy to enjoy.

We absolutely love the style of the photos, capturing so many moments we did not see ourselves on the day, which makes it that much more special, being able to see photos of our family behind the scenes. Our photos are beautiful, vibrant and edgy, everything we wanted and more!

Our couple portrait photos were incredible. Not only were they so much fun to shoot as we felt so comfortable with Maryann and her partner. The photos really captured our love, and for that I cannot praise and thank Maryann enough.

If you are looking for someone to capture your special day or another special event, look no further because The Menagerie - Lifestyle Photography captures the magic, love, happiness and all the emotions we and our guest felt.

Thank you!

Mayann & Nathan were a fab team to have at our wedding! They captured some beautiful moments which our whole family will treasure forever. We bought a package deal with a pay monthly plan which was easy to keep track of and helped us during our budget. Thank you for being with us on our day and for supplying us back with over 800 photos-obsessed! 😍

Couldn't be happier!!!!

We can't thank Maryann enough for her amazing work. She made our day extra special, capturing all the moments perfectly. The photos are stunning, from the candid ones to the posed shots. Maryann's timing was spot-on, and the digital gallery she created for us is a lovely keepsake. We are both super grateful for her talent, quick turnaround, and friendlyness. we couldnt of picked a better wedding photographer, thanks again!

Incredible photos that felt natural and easy

Maryann was fantastic in every way. From the first meeting, she made us feel at ease and completely understood our brief for easy natural photos. Maryann was incredibly communicative in the lead-up to the wedding, making sure she knew everything we wanted from the day. We received our photos after the day very quickly, and the video that was also made was amazing. She not only captured memories that we will treasure forever but was a great help in the morning calming nerves and offering great advice to the Bridal party (ironing dress sashes with straighteners, incredible idea!!). I can't recommend Maryann highly enough as a wedding photographer, book her and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Awesome Photography Experiences

Having Maryann as our photographer for multiple weddings (to the same guy, Maryann knows what we mean) has been fantastic. Maryann understood our very unconventional wedding journey right from the off with a beautiful Xmas pre photoshoot. Our registry wedding photos were perfect, and cannot wait to see our final wedding party celebration pictures.

Fantastic!!! Such a wonderful couple!

I can't tell you how happy we are with our photos and the service they provided! They really went above and beyond to help us before the celebrations and after. They started longer than we payed and did a short video too and the quality of the photos are perfect and just what we wanted. Definitely pick them!!!

Amazing photographers

Maryann was amazing! We had lots of communication in the run up to the wedding and she really listened to our preferences for less traditional shots. She stayed super late and got so many good photos, too many to count! She facilitated our first look and managed to make a rainy day look stunning. 100% would recommend her services.

The best photographer we've experienced

Neither of us are fans of having our photos taken but we were made to feel so comfortable, I ended up enjoying having the photos done and the pictures have turned out better than we could have expected! I would recommend to anyone.

Phenomenal experience!

What can I say about Maryann. Words cannot describe her professionalism and the artistry of her work. She and her partner went above and beyond for us and gave us what we needed and more.

Best decision i made choosing menagerie lifestyle photography

Maryann was amazing on my wedding day. The day wouldn't have been the same without her & Nathan. To say they were helpful would be a huge understatement. Going above and beyond, nothing was too much trouble and they really listened to what we wanted. We didn't feel pressured or uncomfortable at any point (which were anxieties I had pre-wedding). We didn't want "staged" photographs, we wanted natural shots of us & our loved ones enjoying our day, which is exactly what we got. From photos of all our little details, to photos of our dogs, our guests, the venue, and beautifully relaxed couple shots, they covered everything! Mayann's style of photography is right up my street and we weren't disappointed. All of our guests commented on how lovely and friendly they were. Overall amazing experience! Thank you both so much!

Extremely happy with the whole service

Couldn’t be happier with the service provided. We got a clutch of photos next day which was brilliant, and the rest of our day within a few weeks. Our photos were excellent, we loved so many of them, would 100% recommend to anyone needing a wedding photographer.

Fabulous Photographers and Beautiful Pictures

Where do I begin? We booked The Menagerie as photographers for our wedding this on 12th August 2023. Both my partner and I are fairly awkward when it comes to posing in front of a camera but we needn't have worried as from the moment they arrived, both Maryann and Nathan made us feel so at ease with their unintrusive approach and wicked senses of humor. So friendly and professional, they really got stuck in with helping to hold my dress, move things, and even take away teary tissues during the ceremony!

With such a wealth of experience between them, we were blown away by the sneak peek that we've been given of some of the shots. All our guests have contacted us to say how beautiful the images are and we truly could not have asked for more. They have really captured the fun and vibrancy of the day!

We would 100% recommend The Menagerie Lifestyle Photography for any of your events; Maryann and Nathan are nothing short of being the best there is out there and you will have no regrets with choosing to opt for their outstanding and unique style!

Lovely photos

Maryann made the day nice and easy, and we got lovely photos.
At no point did we feel that we didn't know what was going on, and received the photos promptly.

A vision come true

Maryann is a breath of fresh air and makes everything personal to the Bride and Groom. Her team is very organised and they make sure they document the special moments within their work. They added on videography for us and were very flexible. They make sure you receive the photos that are most important to you but add their trust amazing style and ideas which made the cherry on the cake. Truly magnificent work and we are extremely happy.
