Amazing, very professional and we hardly knew he was there

We had chosen Tom as he was local to where we were getting married and having our reception, he kept in contact and made sure he knew what we wanted from his photos. Tom was punctual and very professional and on the day we hardly knew he was there. Tom’s photos were amazing and really capture our day perfectly and they were waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon.

We had originally only booked Tom for half a day but after a few months we changed our minds and he was very accommodating to change to a full day. I would highly recommend Tom to everyone.

Superb experience. Tom is brilliant

Tom was fantastic from the moment we first got in touch with him back in 2019 through to our wedding this September. Nothing was too much trouble. The photos Tom took on our special day surpassed our expectations. They're seems to be a current trend to have completely over edited wedding images that look far too dramatic whereas Tom's are soft, timeless, high resolution and true to the day. He also took great care in assisting us with our beautiful bespoke album. Tom was so discreet on the day but captured every important moment. We highly recommended Tom for your special day! Sarah & John

Everything we could have wished for in a wedding photographer

We waited nearly 4 years for our wedding due to the pandemic and Tom was booked about 6 months after us setting a date. He was so flexible in still being able to accommodate taking the pictures at our wedding even though we had to change the date twice. Tom had just the approach with us we wanted from our photographer, much more relaxed in the moment shots with a few structured and more formal shots. We felt really relaxed during our meetings with him which set the tone for the day. Tom was amazing, he spent time with us while getting ready to get some lovely pre wedding photos. And we got all the formal shots we asked for. The rest of the photos he took are simply stunning. He has captured our entire day and we can honestly say we didn’t really even know he was there. Unobtrusive yet made an impact on our guests. It really felt like he had been a part of our day without really being there. We are thrilled with our wedding photos and now have them captured perfectly for a lifetime. Thanks Tom, would not hesitate to recommend him!

Leeds Castle Wedding Day

Tom was a very calm and friendly presence on our wedding day and slotted in perfectly to capture all the shots he needed. We loved the photos we got back and will treasure them as a reminder of all the happy moments of our long awaited day. There is a great mix of formal and candid photos and you can tell they have been edited to bring out the best of everything (despite some grey skies). He was professional, responsive and flexible throughout the Covid experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services! Holly & Andy, Aug. 2021

An amazing photographer

- I can’t believe how lucky we were finding Tom. The whole experience with him was fantastic! His website really drew me in with his beautiful photos - his natural style was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. His pricing package system was also extremely clear - so many others said call to discuss which immediately put me off! Tom was happy to come to see the venue in advance so that we could discuss and pick out good spots for photos and he gave excellent advice about timings and groupings. On the day he was lovely to have around, made everyone feel very relaxed and extremely efficient without ordering everyone around. He moved around the wedding very discreetly catching beautifully natural moments but always willing to take group shots if asked. The photos arrived much more quickly than I expected and I couldn’t have been happier! They were absolutely what I had imagined and hoped for - actually in fact they were better! He absolutely caught the magic and happiness of the day and his photos will serve as a lasting memory. We are currently picking the ones we want for our albums and I’m struggling because there are so many beautiful shots. I can not recommend Tom enough. 5 out of 5 stars simply isn’t good enough for him- if I could I’d give him 10! If you are looking for a fabulous photographer who is also a thoroughly lovely person and you are lucky enough that Tom is available, do not hesitate to get in touch! Thank you Tom for everything!
