Hi, I'm Jon 👋
"Jon arrived as a photographer and left as a guest" - a genuine review from a couple which just about sums me up. My personable, fun, yet professional approach makes for very natural images.
If you're looking for t stereotypical photographer (chinos, leather camera straps etc) DO NOT BOOK ME.... I'll attend your wedding with a smile, personality (and probably bad jokes at some point) But I will also look after you, guide you, help you, and ensure you get the best out of your wedding pictures. I've photographed 500+ weddings. I'm very experienced, and I'm very lucky to have the best job ever !

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jon Byles Hardman
Hi. A wedding can be a massively stressful operation ! My aim is to provide a friendly and fun service from booking until way past the wedding itself. I offer a truly personable service and will go the extra mile to look after you. (I recently made a 2 hour round trip to collect some confetti the night before a wedding, as the brides hadn't turned up ! ) Would every photographer do that ? Really hope to speak to you soon. Jon.

The most fun and kind person!
John was a brilliant man to work with, open to having a giggle, and played a major part in keeping us on track. Absolutely perfect day with perfect pictures to remember! He remembered everything and was sure to include everything we asked, even our grumpy old dogs. Could not be happier working with him and the videographer he works with (Dave, Lakeland Films)

Truly Wonderful
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture the most special moments on our wedding day. Jon was amazing on the day and leading up to the wedding itself. He made us feel so calm and comfortable and is so easy going. He captured some lovely shots at the pre wedding meeting we had with him which we adored and exceeded our expectations. We knew from then that our wedding photos would be perfect. Jon made so much effort to ensure we got the best photo's. We cant thank Jon enough.

So friendly and the pictures are just gorgeous
Jon was absolutely brilliant. My son was obsessed with him and followed him around the place 😂 he was so good with him and even let him take some of the pictures. He was so friendly and the pictures are just gorgeous - better than I could have hoped for. So so pleased I booked him as I couldn’t be happier with the service, communication and results. Thank you so much!! (Testimonial copied from google reviews)

I can't recommend Jon enough
Jon has been amazing throughout the whole journey of our wedding from start to finish! From the day we booked, Jon was on hand to answer any questions, and helped with the whole wedding process. When we met up for our pre wedding photoshoot, Jon explained more to us than anyone else! On the day of the wedding, he made us both feel so calm and just allowed us to enjoy the day! We got so many beautiful photographs and Jon was able to capture the most special moments. I can't recommend Jon enough

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your most memorable wedding?

EVERY wedding is memorable for different reasons, and I've been privileged to work at some amazing venues. From a Scottish Castle wedding (with no roof - yes it rained! ) to racing across a golf course with a bride and groom in a golf buggy !

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly. Professional. Artistic. Fun. Visionary

What about your business are you most proud of?

The personable touch. I've stayed in touch with virtually all the couples I've worked with. I love the fact that they get to know me, and trust in what I do.

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

On your wedding day - EVERY hour - disappear with your new husband/wife or 5 minutes, and have some alone time. It goes SO fast on the day - take time for you, and to enjoy the day

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

Probably the most unusual was the Nigerian wedding I photographed recently. I received a towel as a "favour" with the couples faces printed on it :) Plus their first dance involved them being showered with Nigerian dollars A real personal and unusual touch

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Get the proposal together Agree the package Meet up and have a chat about the day - AND take some informal "pre-wedding pictures" Stay in touch constantly before the wedding. Plan every detail so the wedding day goes by without issues, and without me having to keep asking what is happening next Quickly edit a handful of pictures within 48 hours so you can use them on social media, or for thank you cards. Fly edit the rest of the photos and put them onto your online gallery to share, download etc Receive your personalised USB drive with all your images on Discuss albums and prints if you'd like them STAY IN TOUCH :)

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

I think there are several, from the 1st look, to the 1st kiss, to the 1st dance - but it's sometimes the natural candid pictures that really tell the story

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

I've been asked to take pictures on a carousel before now - which is always good when you suffer from dizzy spells....

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Well, I carry around 10 clear umbrellas in the boot of my car to EVERY wedding. you never know what may happen ! If it does rain - don't let it worry you. Go with it - there are some exceptional pictures that can be taken in the rain (or just after)

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always loved photographing landscapes and sunsets from an early age, and used to pinch my dads camera (yes the old 35mm film one) I soon realised that this was the profession for me - but it took a while before I was able to take the plunge and do this full time (kids, family and a mortgage meant a lot planning !) However, it was the best move I ever made
