Perfectly captured the atmosphere of our special d
Simon was a great photographer for our wedding. He was professional and friendly, managing to arrange groupings for photographs without disrupting the guests socialising. The formally arranged photographs are beautiful, but my favourites are the informal shots Simon managed to take of small groups and special moments between friends and family that . Thank you Simon x

His photos are beautiful, creative and unique.
Simon was photographer for our wedding in Windermere. Simon is wonderful, professional and enthusiastic. He was prepared and took the time to understand not only our personalities but to really capture the theme of the wedding and the smaller details which bring so many happy memories. His photos are beautiful, creative and unique. Thank you so much!

Simon was amazing on the day of our wedding
Simon was amazing on the day of our wedding. He made sure to stay in contact before the wedding just so he knew exactly what we wanted and kept us at ease throughout. The photos were amazing quality, and forever priceless to us. We could not have asked for better photos, or an easier experience with a photographer. Highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
