Simply stunning

Hiring Jon was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I'm not someone who likes to have their photo taken, but Jon instantly put me at ease. All our guests commented on how professional and polite Jon was and what a pleasure he was to work with. Our venue even told us that they hope he shoots a wedding there again as he was so lovely.

Jon sent our gallery back to us 3 days after the wedding and we couldn't be happier with our photos. There isn't one I don't like and I can't wait to get them printed and framed in our home. The only issue we'll have is deciding which ones to print!

I cannot thank you Jon enough for his help in making our day perfect

Our Dream Photographer

I found Jon through a list of recommended suppliers our wedding venue gave us, and it was honestly the best thing that happened during our wedding planning. Jon is one of the sweetest, most genuinely nice person I have ever met. From the start he was so helpful and patient with us while we were discussing wedding plans. We also had an engagement shoot done with him, which was one of the best decisions we made. It was so fun, and not in any way stressful or forced.

For our wedding, we had Jon and the lovely Laura who works along side him as a videographer. They both work so well together and got so many amazing shots that we will forever treasure. We were so happy with his work that we bought one of his stunning wedding photo books, he laid out the photos we chose and then it was sent to Italy to be beautifully put together.

We can't stress enough how much of a pleasure it was to have met Jon and worked with him from engagement to wedding. The day went by so quickly but his work has forever frozen our happiest day in time for us to enjoy for years to come.

Perfect, perfect, perfect.

Jon was without doubt the best wedding "supplier" we organised for our wedding day. No words can explain just how good Jon. As well as his excellent photography skills, he organises and works efficiently. He completely disappeared into the background of the day, and captured some beautiful shots - we forgot he was there. He worked seamlessly with the videographer we had organised too.

He captured our day to a tee. From the day we booked Jon (in 2020!), to the day we received our finished wedding gallery (3 days after our actual wedding may I add!) he has been amazing. Communication 10/10.

We will always be forever grateful for the shots Jon has provided for us. Thank you Jon from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to see you soon!

What a wonderful photographer!

From start to finish, Jon put me and my husband at ease, and was completely patient with all the different photo combinations that we wanted to capture during our special day. He worked so hard to achieve these, and understood how important these were to us.

Our family and friends said how friendly he was, and so easy and approachable to work with. The photographs that Jon took are absolutely incredible and we will cherish them forever.

Could not recommend more!

My partner Kate and I booked Jon for our wedding in October this year and we could not be happier with our choice! I would give 6 stars if I could! From the first intro call and onwards it was clear that Jon was passionate about what he does but also a professional with high standards. On the day Jon was a pleasure to work with and he made sure everything was stress free and fun. The photographs he produced were beautiful, and so special. Thanks you so much Jon - Becky and Kate X

Jon is a wonderful photographer and person who was professional and amazing from the word go.
Made our day so much more just by being himself. The photos are amazing and couldn't have wanted more.
The story book shows the descriptive and romantic events of the day. We will always cherish our photos.
Thank you Jon

We met Jon at our first ever wedding fayre. We knew instantly that we wanted Jon to capture the memories of our day.
It was one of the best decisions we made about our day!
The imagery we received captured our day perfectly and is a true reflection of Jon's skills, passion and talent. Jon is non-obtrusive and finds the perfect balance of those 'must have' shots, the more 'natural' shots and those shots that when you look back immediately take you right back to that precise moment in your day.
The detail in each image is incredible and the story book you receive is certainly something to cherish forever.
Jon right from our first meet was professional but so understanding and friendly. So many of our guests commented on what a genuinely lovely guy he was to work with and we could not agree more.
We are so grateful for the beautiful images we have to remember our day and could only advise you to look no further and book, book, book!

"Jon was meticulous in capturing every special moment"

“Emma and I had the privilege of having Jon Thorne capture our wedding in May 2019 at Moddershall Oaks. Jon was a very obvious choice for us, having seen the amazing photos he takes and after meeting him for the first time. His attention to detail and his caring nature made it very clear to us that this is not just a job for him, but a true passion and it becomes ever increasingly obvious the more you work with him. Jon was meticulous in capturing every special moment for us and took great care to make sure that he was not being overly intrusive or taking us away from family and friends for too long. We had several comments throughout the day from our guests letting us know how nice Jon was and how hard he was working, which should speak volumes by itself.

Once the wedding was over and the album was printed, Jon came to present the album to us to make sure we were happy with his work. Happy was an understatement! We now have a beautiful, professional wedding album with so many treasured photos - the hardest part of the whole process was trying to select our favourites from the hundreds of high quality images we had been sent! We could not have asked for anything more and wish Jon all the best for the future.

Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special."

Absolutely Exceptional!

On the wedding day, Jon instantly made both of us and all of the wedding party feel very much at ease. He never ‘left a stone unturned’ at anytime during the day and managed to capture all the very best highlights of our wedding. He was neither intrusive or demanding of anyone in attendance. Which has meant that all of our photos taken of our special day are just full of people naturally laughing and smiling!
Following on from the wedding day, Jon’s help and guidance with the photo selection has been absolutely exceptional. Which resulted in us having a beautiful Storybook produced. The quality of which is amazing and takes us back to our special day every time it is opened.
So please are we with Jon’s complete package and high quality, that we have already promised him that any further family occasions where photography is needed, we will most definitely, yet again, be requiring his services.

Our wedding storybook is truly stunning

From our first meeting with Jon, we looked no further for a wedding photographer. His style of photography was just what we were looking for, as we didn’t want staged photos but natural images which captured those special moments. Not only that, but Jon is such a lovely guy! So genuine and down-to-earth, and he really put us at ease on the run up to the wedding but also on our big day.
Our wedding storybook is truly stunning, bound in Italian leather with a selection of our most treasured wedding moments.
Thank-you once again to Jon for giving us memories which will last a lifetime and beyond!

Just Wow! Captured our day perfectly

Choosing a photographer for your wedding can be such a difficult task with so many different people out there, but from the moment we met Jon we knew he would fit in seamlessly with our day and make us feel at ease. He worked so hard with us on the run up to the day and made us feel comfortable and made sure we knew whatever the weather he would make it work. And the result, well just wow. We have so many beautiful pictures which we absolutely love - he captured our day perfectly. Don't hesitate to book with Jon, we have the most perfect keepsake thanks to him.

An Amazing Photographer

We knew instantly that Jon was the right photographer for our wedding day. We were actually surprised to find someone who cared so much about not only taking superb photos and giving us such a fantastic wedding album but also about making sure we enjoyed our day. Jon made such an effort before our wedding to meet with us to discuss ideas and to make sure we were happy with everything and made us feel really confident that the day would be perfect…. and it certainly was!!
For most of the day we didn’t even know Jon was there. He made us feel so relaxed and when we received our photos we were actually surprised at some of the great shots Jon had captured as you wouldn’t have even noticed he was there to get that shot. Definitely an amazing photographer but even more than that so artistic. The more official photos were even fun to have and whilst we absolutely wanted to have some of these for our album we didn’t expect to enjoy having the photos taken on the day anywhere near as much as we did.
We can’t thank Jon enough for being part of our special day and also for giving us the most beautiful photos of the day and a gorgeous wedding story book. Our album takes pride of place on show in our home and always will do.
Thanks so much Jon and we now need to find another opportunity to have you at an event of ours!!

You would be extremely wise to book him!

We were really keen to find a photographer who could capture both our intimate wedding day, and our vintage 1940’s reception, held on different days. We met with Jon who came all the way out to us at home to discuss our needs. We instantly found his gentle, detailed but assertive approach reassuring. We were very reassured by his approach and confident that he would achieve his outcome without upsetting everyone. In fact, he managed to get the guests to want to do everything he asked of them!
There were many things we loved about Jon, to name just a few:
- He knew exactly how to ask us to pose that looked natural and at our best, despite our awkwardness.
- He was able to manage the compulsory posed shots and the natural ones smoothly, organising the crowd of 200 into the right position very quickly without inconveniencing anyone... we’ve been to one too many weddings where the photograph session has been the most boring interlude, typically characterised by lengthy awkward mingling while feeling very cold and gradually tent-pegging the grass in one’s heels from the extensive standing... we had none of that which was really important to us!
- He was present and personable when he needed to be but invisible and unobtrusive at all the other times allowing the wedding to continue as if he wasn’t there. This meant the pictures didn’t feel artificial or stilted.
- He managed the classical wedding shots and the 1940’s vintage shots perfectly.
- He did exactly what he told us he was going to do.
- We got the photos very quickly.
We have concluded that Jon is the Mary Poppins of photographers and you would be extremely wise to book him if he is available.
Thank you Jon.

An amazing photographer

I’m a bit late in writing this review but finally have the time to share what an amazing photographer Jon is. If I could give more than 5* I would!
Myself and Chris warmed to Jon from the moment we met him, he made us feel immediately at ease, has such a friendly approach whilst still maintaining a professional image. Jon was never ever pushy, but was thorough and informative from our initial meeting right up until delivering our album months later.
Guests from the wedding commented on what a lovely man he was - this is a massive thing, putting everyone at ease allowing some gorgeous photos to be captured.
Jon explained every detail he aimed to capture from the day whilst allowing Chris and myself to offer suggestions - but Jon had pretty much everything covered.
Jon himself is a fantastic person but this is also reflected in his work, creative, different, classic, he covers all areas and upon viewing the online collection when we first received it, we laughed and cried as all photos allowed us to relive our special day! Thank you Jon.
It was so hard to narrow down the photos for the album so we paid extra for more pages - it had to be done!
If anyone is reading this and considering Jon for their wedding ... DO IT! I promise you will not be disappointed.
We have no regrets, our day was the most perfect and it was a pleasure to have had Jon as a part of that!
Thank you so much Jon!
