Couples Kind Words

We cannot recommend Simon enough!

Having a small, intimate wedding, we were cautious that having a formal photographer might spoil the atmosphere but Simon was extremely discrete, managing to capture it all without us hardly noticing he was there!

We absolutely love our photos. Simon has a true talent for capturing natural, subtle moments, with beautiful light, colour and context.

Genuine interesting photos, which I personally feel is quite rare in wedding photography!

One of the best decisions we made!

Choosing Simon as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. We were drawn to his documentary style as neither of us are particular fans of posing for photos!

On the day Simon really took his time to understand the venue and where he would look for us to have photos throughout the day. We have no idea how he did it, but he managed to be in all the right places at the right time and (in the best way possible) we didn’t notice at all!

We have ended up with the most incredible wedding photos, they have captured all emotions of the day and when we look at them we are transported back to exactly how we felt. We truly couldn’t be happier with our photos and can’t thank Simon enough for capturing our memories so perfectly.

I can’t tell you how glad we are that we chose him.

Given our budget, we were reluctant to spend on a photographer, but we also knew we would regret it if we didn’t have a good set of photos. We wanted natural photos, not posed stiff ones, and Simon’s portfolio looked beautifully quirky.

I can’t tell you how glad we are that we chose him. He was worth every penny and more. Neither of us expected such an array of beautiful photos, it’s impossible to choose our favourites, there are just so many!

Not only has he captured every moment, he’s captured every feeling. Every time I look at our photos I smile. They are perfect

Simon is an artist, each picture so beautifully composed, and he managed to capture all the moments and details that we missed as bride and groom.

It is a joy to look at the pictures, remembering our day, but also seeing it as our guests experienced it. These pictures make everyone so happy.

We would absolutely recommend Simon if you are looking for someone to capture your special occasion and for photos to treasure for years to come!

Where do we start?! Simon was so relaxed and unflappable.

As plenty of people surely say, neither of us love having our photo taken, but Simon has a calming approach and doesn’t demand anything of you that you don’t want or aren’t comfortable with. We have beautiful, natural photos that captured the day just as it unfolded. Simon is professional, friendly and so very talented. So many of our friends and family have commented on how wonderful the photos are, with some saying they are the best wedding photos they have seen!

We cannot thank you enough. Every time we look through our photos we notice little details that we hadn’t before, and each time we are transported back to our wonderful wedding day.

Thank you so much for our absolutely incredible photos ♥️

Well, I honestly don’t know where to start. Thank you so much for our absolutely incredible photos ♥️ You have, without doubt, captured the essence of our day. We’ve cried & laughed so much this evening. My hearts bursting! I’m so incredibly happy we found you.

It was an absolute delight working with Simon.

He’s so chilled out and helped make my husband and I feel so comfortable and at ease. Looking at some of the images Simon captured, we keep remarking ‘I didn’t even notice him stood there!’ or ‘How did he get that shot without us realising?’ – this is exactly what we were looking for, and we found it with Simon.

My husband and I are not keen on being in the limelight at all, but Simon kept everything low key and relaxed – he perfectly captured the essence of our day, our guests and us as a couple. Simon effortlessly got it all, and even during the brief ‘staged’ photos period (group shots and pictures of us together), we felt totally relaxed and comfortable.

If you’re looking for that ‘fly on the wall’ style experience, for someone to capture the day in its most natural and truest form, Simon is the photographer for you.

Ellie & Tom

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love your photos.

You’ve honestly left us with the best gift ever. You capture moments, movements and most importantly, emotions.

And then, you wrap them all up into gorgeous photos which tell story after story at every turn. You truly captured the essence of our day, and I could not have asked for more. Thank you ❤️

Choosing Simon as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made.

After spending time looking through his instagram and website, we knew we’d found the right person!

Each and every photo we have takes us back to our wedding day and there are moments captured with so much emotion.

I’ve always been a bit camera shy, so his approach was incredibly refreshing. He was so unobtrusive and respectful and seamlessly blended into the background of the day.

We couldn’t be happier with the memories Simon captured. We highly recommend him to any couple looking to capture all the big and little moments of their special day.

Thank you Simon!
