Kind Words From Great People

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting hundreds of ceremonies throughout my career. Here’s where I share a few nice things that couples have said about me and my work as a Walthamstow wedding photographer.

Photographing a happy couple on one of the best days of their lives is a story that never gets old.

“We were lucky enough to work with Simon on our wedding day could not have asked for more beautiful and unique photos. He had a perfectly timed game plan, which we were so grateful for on a whirlwind of a day.

Truly a wonderful experience and I hope everyone is lucky enough to have the same. We will forever cherish the photos Simon took.

By the night’s end, our family and friends considered Simon one of our own. We’re so very thankful we were able to find him. He’s the best.”

Bride and groom crossing the road in Chelsea, London

Right from our first meeting Simon 'got' our style of wedding.

His calming & unobtrusive manner meant photography never got in the way during our wedding day, as has been the case at other weddings we have been to. His creative eye & style of shooting delivered an album with a contemporary feel which perfectly captured the essence of our day.

We absolutely love them!


My husband & I were very impressed with Simon

He did an amazing job and we have fantastic photos.
From the minute I spoke to Simon on the phone to when we met on the morning of my wedding I knew I made the right choice. Simon is very friendly, approachable and made everyone feel comfortable.
He was great from the minute he got to the house to do some pre-wedding shots, at the church and the venue until the first dance. we have some fantastic natural photos of the bridesmaids, best men and my husband and I together.
Many people at the wedding commented on how good he was.
We can’t thank him enough for giving us amazing memories that we can cherish forever.

Fantastic photos, captured the day just as we wanted

Relaxed, unstaged and and made everyone feel completely at ease. Simon meet with us beforehand and talked through the plan for the day, he caught some great moments from the day and showed us and our guests in their best light, we are very happy with the results

Veronica & Rod, Hatfield House, Hertfordshire

Simon did our wedding day and did a fab job. Myself and the groom were really worried about the photos on the day as we both weren't keen on posing for them, however, Simon was brilliant and made us feel at ease at our first meeting. On the day we never even new he was in the background and was great doing the family photographs.

Deborah & Chris, Hitchin, Hertfordshire

Excellent wedding photos, really relaxed shots which is exactly what we wanted. Thoroughly recommended

We are so pleased we had Simon as our photographer! We had no idea what to look for or expect from a wedding photographer but we were really lucky to end up with Simon. His photographs are excellent and he's really easy to get along with. We really couldn't recommend him highly enough!

Simon did a brilliant job for us, worked really quickly and got all the photos we'd asked for. Love them. Just hard picking out our favourites now!

Stephanie & Dan, fanhams hall, hertfordshire

Simon photographed our wedding last summer and did a superb job.

He had an excellent knowledge of the venue and how best to capture it with the changing light conditions. It was really important to us to have a good mix of informal natural pictures with the staged shots and to catch us enjoying the day with our young son, Simon did this all perfectly and we were really impressed with how swiftly he produced the finished collection of photographs. A really first class service and a lovely guy to boot, I would happily recommend!

Nikki & Jarred, Beamish Hall Hotel, County Durham

we would have no hesitation recommending Simon & his outstanding work

From the first time we met Simon to receiving our wedding album, Simon was the complete professional. We very much wanted our photo's to have a relaxed feel and that is exactly what we got. Simon understood what we wanted and delivered unique, timeless photos that really captured the essence of our day. Simon managed to stay in the background but was at all the pivotal moments. Our USB was waiting for us at home when we returned from honeymoon and seeing so many special moments again and some for the first time let us relive our most special day again. The quality of the album was first class and the photo layout excellent.

Laura & Woody, Grovefield House Hotel, Windsor

We could not have asked for a better photographer for our Wedding Day!

We wanted a relaxed day without the pressure of traditional staged wedding photos. Simon was calm & relaxed throughout the day & managed to capture our wedding in the style we wanted. We would highly recommend Simon as a wedding photographer & we love our informal, natural & modern photographs! Thank you very much.
