If you want an amazing wedding photographer then Tom is your person!

Tom Cullen was our photographer for our wedding in November 2023 at The Ravenswood.

After speaking to several wedding photographers it was clear that Tom stood out from the rest. We met him on a number of occasions leading up to the wedding day - from an online Zoom call where we could ask him any questions that came to mind to meeting up in person a few months before the big day so we could show him around our wedding venue. Having never visited our venue before, within minutes of arriving Tom found fantastic shots we would never have thought of. The visit was also a great opportunity to show Tom the features of the venue we loved.

The photographs from the wedding day itself are absolutely stunning. Tom captured the day perfectly and his photographs really took our breath away. His candid style of working meant that we honestly did not notice him (aside from the posed photographs where he was a great coordinator) and he was able to capture some beautiful natural moments.

As well as being a magnificent photographer, Tom is also a lovely person who was a joy to work with. A great communicator who was able to manage a variety of personalities on the day. All of our guests commented on how friendly and approachable he was. We would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a photographer.

Absolutely fantastic!!

We loved Tom's portfolio of photos so we met with him. We loved him as we felt like he understood exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos. On the day, he blended in with our guests and had lots of fun with everyone. He was very accommodating with group photos and add ons that we hadn’t anticipated. He had great ideas for couple photos and we loved that his photos were so natural and just of us and our family and friends enjoying themselves. We would highly recommend Tom if you are looking for an awesome wedding photographer who takes beautiful natural photos! The photos he took at our wedding are everything we wanted and more!

The BEST Photographer

We were lucky enough to have Tom Cullen as our Photographer for our wedding, and the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment we met at our first wedding fair, it was evident that we were dealing with a true master.

Tom has an uncanny ability to capture moments that are not just photographs but pieces of art. Every shot he took seemed to have a magical quality to it, as if he had a special lens that could capture the essence of the moment in its purest form. His attention to detail was impeccable, and he had a knack for finding the perfect angle, lighting, and composition for each shot.

I am not comfortable in front of a camera, but Tom put us at ease and made the photography element for us feel effortless and so enjoyable.

The end result exceeded our wildest dreams. The photos he captured are not just images but memories frozen in time, each one telling a story of love, joy, and laughter. We are eternally grateful to Tom for his incredible work and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a wedding photographer.

Thank you, Tom, for giving us the gift of these beautiful memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.

What an amazing photographer!

I cannot put into words how amazing Tom was on our wedding day! Tom has the loveliest presence and puts you at ease from the moment he arrives. I’m not the most confident person to have their photo taken, but nothing felt like a chore and I genuinely enjoyed every “posed” picture he got us to take! For the rest of the day, Tom blended in perfectly with the wedding guests and took so many beautiful, candid photos. He captured the true essence of the whole day and looking back at all the photos just filled us with all of the emotions from the wedding day all over again. I would recommend Tom to absolutely anyone, he was a huge part of our wedding and I’m so grateful we got to work with him!

Stunning photography on a magical day

We were so lucky to share the happiest day of our lives with Tom. My husband and I usually ones to shy away from a camera but Tom made us feel at ease through the whole day- it was like having a friend around all day and it became fun! We had previously met Tom before our big day at our venue, where he did some shots with our dog which were amazing. During the ceremony, we didn't even notice he was there so we didn't feel any added pressure. After the wedding, we couldn't wait to receive our photos and we were in awe of how incredible and beautiful they are. He captured so much beauty at the venue and captured the magical feeling we had throughout the whole day. Overall, the best photographer we could have asked for and all-round great guy. We can't thank him enough!

Super creative photographer

If anyone is looking for a photographer, I can't recommend Tom enough! He was professional and a delight to work with from start to finish. He's insanely creative with his shots, which pushes his photography beyond "just pictures". He knows his stuff and clearly has a passion and love for his profession.

There's so much to say...
* I don't like smiling in pictures because of my teeth. Tom managed to sneak a lot of very natural shots of me smiling that I adore.
* We had a lot of personal touches in our wedding. Tom made sure we had at least 1 photo of each to help remember the details.
* I did push him a little out of his comfort zone with the perspective "step on husband" shot. But he gave it his best effort and it turned out fantastic! (Thanks, Tom! lol)
* As said before, he's very professional, but he's totally down for being silly too. A prime example is in his contract. Make sure you give it a thorough read. 😉

All in all, amazing creative photographer! Thank you so much, Tom, for taking such wonderful photos of our day!!

Best day ever

Tom was absolutely incredible before and on our wedding day. No question was deemed silly or left unanswered. Tom was incredibly responsive to all of queries from day one and we couldn’t have imagined anyone else to help capture our special day. He got such a good selection of pictures and even the more relaxed photos look amazing.

Incredibly talented- and a lovely person to have around on your wedding day!

Tom was absolutely incredible, we had to unfortunately keep moving our wedding date due to the pandemic and he was really helpful each time. He listened to exactly what we wanted and really understood what we wanted our wedding to be about, on our wedding day it was more like having an old friend around whilst also being the ultimate professional. Tom took some incredible shots and made sure we had some unique photos just for our wedding. Can't recommend him enough, he's extremely talented but also a lovely person to have around you on your wedding day!

Absolutely incredible!

Tom is fantastic photographer who will go above and beyond to ensure you get every shot you want. Our guests all noted how comfortable they felt and that it felt like we had another guest that they could chat with all day.
Tom is particularly good at managing the crowds in a positive way to remove any stress of grouping people on the day.
We cannot fault him at all and are now OBSESSED with our pictures. If you are still looking for your photographer, look no further as you have found the one!

Tom is simply a five-star photographer

We can’t recommend Tom enough. He took the photos during our wedding at Nettlestead place in August 2022 and they are simply the best photos we have ever been in! What an incredible eye he has for light and composition. He took posed and candid photos splendidly and captured the beautiful surroundings. He made all our guests comfortable in front of the camera and caught so many magic moments between them. Looking through the gallery Tom prepared for us there were so many pictures that captured the little moments that we missed and let us re-live the day all over again. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful set of photos that record the joy, warmth, humor and love we felt on our wedding day. Thank you, Tom!

Simply the best!

For two people who don’t like being in front of the camera, Tom made us feel completely at ease every step of the way. His photography is beyond incredible, and the service he offers from beginning to end is first class. We would recommend Tom to anyone looking for a wedding photographer as regardless of style and size he would be a fantastic addition to anyones special day.

Tom has an infectious energy that left us so excited after every conversation we had with him. When we decided to completely change our wedding plans (including bringing the date forward by 9 months, and getting rid of all of our guests) he couldn’t have been more accommodating and on board with the idea. Nothing was too much trouble and Tom went above and beyond to ensure our day was just how we wanted it.

Tom, we can’t thank you enough for our fantastic photos and the memories they bring with them.

Phenomenal Photography!

Two minutes into our initial meeting and I knew Tom was the wedding photographer for us! His warm and relaxed nature instantly made us both feel comfortable and at ease. We are absolutely blown away (almost literally due to the worst storm in 40 years on our wedding weekend) by our wedding photos.Tom did a phenomenal job at capturing how joyful and full of fun our day was. It was a pleasure to have him as part of our day and so many of the guests commented on how well he fitted in with everybody and what a lovely man he was to be around. From the initial booking stage up until the day we received our final photos Tom’s customer service and communication was faultless, he really listened to us, had excellent suggestions and fulfilled all of our requests. We really cannot recommend Tom Cullen photography highly enough!

Highly Skilled and Professional Photographer

Tom is a brilliant photographer. Not only does he make you feel comfortable throughout the day, but his photos are amazing. We wouldn’t have some of our most favourite pictures if it wasn’t for Tom spotting the special places to take them that nobody else would have whilst we were going around the venue! Extremely lucky to have Tom a part of our special day.

Tom is a very professional photographer and his experience and skills are key to see. Our guests even commented on what a lovely man he is and the quality of his photographs. Tom made our day extra special and we have already recommended him to our friends who have booked Tom for their wedding as well as they were so impressed with his photography skills.

If you are looking for a professional and highly skilled photographer then Tom is your man!

The best..

Tom did the photos for our wedding back in October, to say the photos wore amazing is an understatement! The attention to detail in the photos to your breath away. He captured every aspect of our day in the most beautiful and romantic way. Tom was so lovely, friendly, and very professional, he slipped right in, and you wasn't even aware he was taking pictures. Everyone loved him and kept telling us what a lovely bloke he was. We honestly couldn't recommend him enough. If u are after someone who goes above and beyond to capture your most precious memories, Tom is the guy ❤️
Thanks again for everything, Tom.
We wish you all the best and keep safe
Love
Tracey and Ian
(Mr and Mrs Whitehead)
