I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Happy Wedding Photography for your big day. Dawn was fantastic despite awful weather, putting everybody at ease and capturing those natural shots (some hilarious) when you forget the camera is there. She is also keen to accommodate your wishes for specific pictures on the day. We opted for the 'Short but Sweet' package for our small ceremony and the service provided was second to none even on the smaller budget. Thankyou Happy Wedding Photography!!

I found Dawn through her website. It was a second marriage for both of us and as we only wanted a small wedding we went for her short but sweet package which just takes pictures of the ceremony. I found Dawn easy to talk to and ready to accommodate any request i had. I didn't meet Dawn until the day of the wedding but felt i had known her for years. She was friendly, outgoing and very professional. Her pictures are wonderful and there are so many it has been difficult to choose the best ones. Thanks Dawn for making our wedding day memories so good.

Dawn came all the way to Wigan to take photos of our park wedding. Beforehand she was there to discuss all our photo requirements, and to answer any questions I had (there were a lot!). On the day she was fantastic. I was important to me that the photographs didn't feel pushed, that people weren't being rushed around and that they felt as comfortable as possible. I had four of the people say to me, without asking, how nice she was, and that she did make them feel comfortable. She really worked to what we wanted from the wedding: a relaxed and informal feel. At the same time she managed to catch some beautiful photographs of the day as well. Ones that I like, which is pretty unusual, because I am not a fan of photographs of myself! If you want someone who will make your guests, and yourselves, feel at ease, as well as taking beautiful photos then I would highly recommend. Thank you again.

Both Stephen and myself were amazed by the pictures that both Dawn and Craig took on the day. Dawn put me at ease from day one and eased my nerves the day before, she helped round up the family for the pictures and made sure that we both felt very comfortable. I love the pictures and I pretty much look at them every week! Thanks so much Dawn (and Craig) for helping to make our day so special.

What is your most memorable wedding?

My first wedding is probably my most memorable as i was so nervous and determined to get everything perfect for the couple. I now use that experience for each wedding especially when the bride is so nervous i work extra hard to but her a ease and give her the wedding photos of her dreams

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, Formal mixed with Informal

What about your business are you most proud of?

Im always over the moon when i receive a booking as a result of a recommendation from one of my previous couples

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Decide what it is that you two actually want rather than whatever everyone else thinks you should do or have

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A theme that represents you is always fabulous, we have had everything from vintage tea parties to, star wars to lord of the rings

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After receiving your inital enquiry some couples like just to book via email or phone however a face to face meeting can also be arranged in a location of your choice. Then the week of your wedding we have another phone chat to re run through all the details of your day to make sure nothing has been missed or changed. We discuss the flow of your day, who coming and what you do and dont want

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I think its important for each couple to have a few photos taken away from thier guests and to let everything just sink in and just be in the momment together, it may just be 5 minutes or half an hour you decide

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

One of my favourites is when im asked to recreate an old photo it may be your parents or grandparents wedding day or you and siblings when you where young

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Not to get upset we cover quite alot of rainy weddings, large clear umberellas and wellies are great. We can still pop outside on damp ground with wellies without ruining your wedding shoes

Describe how you got into photography.

I had always enjoyed photography as i grew up so when i moved to Blackpool in 2005 i decided to go to college to study photography and that combined with being quite a sociable person wedding photography became an obvious choice for me
