Cornwall best wedding photographers 2016

Emma + James

Lusty Glaze Beach Weddings

“Thank you so much for our wedding photos, we absolutely love them! I don’t think we have ever said the word ‘wow’ and ‘amazing’ so many times in one go before, they are just stunning and we will treasure them forever. The playlist you made for us was fantastic and really brought the photos to life. James put all the songs together on a Spotify playlist and then played it whilst we showed the photos to some of our friends and family over the weekend. We can’t wait to continue to share them with the rest of our loved ones. We really couldn’t have asked for lovelier people to photograph our day, and I do hope we can keep in touch!!”

Best Devon wedding photographers of 2016

Hazel + Fred

St Petroc’s Church, Padstow & Trevose Head

“Hi Abi and Keith, Fred and I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for all help and hard work on our wedding day and in the run up to it.
We had the most wonderful time and it was helped by both of you being utterly relaxed and slotting into the madness. Abi – it was so lovely having you around in the bridal house in the morning. And Keith – you just had a smile on your face every time I looked your way – which helped calm the nerves! I think I’ll remember the photos down on the beach as a highlight of the day just because it was so magical down there, and I got a bit of time alone with Fred. It was also lovely being down on the beach in all our finery as normally we are walking our dog in jeans and jumpers on Constantine Bay! Thank you again for all the effort you put in to the day, and of course we can’t wait to see the photos.”

Lovely to also receive this email from Hazel and Fred upon receiving their photos: “Hi Abi, Thank you so much for the photos. They are amazing!!! Fred and I couldn’t believe how many beautiful moments you’d captured. It was wonderful re-living the day all over again and seeing interactions that we didn’t even witness on the day. We also just seem to have been grinning constantly! I have no idea how you got the pictures of us in front of the ocean, shooting INTO the sun AND getting all the wonderful colours of the Cornish coastline as well. You and Keith are both very very clever. Thank you again for everything.”

Zoe + Richard

St Enodoc Church & Pencarrow House

“Oh my goodness – we don’t really know what to say. Such beautiful beautiful images. We got your email as we were on our way home from dinner out last night – we were so excited and we came in and set up the slideshow immediately. We didn’t end up going to bed until nearly 1am! We were just mesmerised. Seeing our day unfold again, with all the little touches and glances that it involved, was just magical for us. Your pictures are works of art, capturing a moment in time, and all of the emotion contained within it. They are stunning. Thank you so much. The whole gallery just showcases family, children, love and togetherness, in a way that we so hoped for.

We are so grateful to you – you have given us a beautiful gift that we get to keep for all time. And you managed to achieve all of that whilst just being a joy to have around on the day too! You are both so talented, with real integrity at the heart of what you do – but also just wonderfully kind and lovely. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are going to spend many long hours looking through all the images, and savouring each one.

I am going to have to invent a reason to use you again one day – as it feels really wrong not to see you otherwise!

With deep gratitude,
Zoë and Richard xx”

reed hall wedding charley ross

Charley + Ross

Reed Hall, Exeter

“Just to say how thrilled we are with the photos! We knew they would be good but these are just beautiful… Love how watching it in the slideshow mode tells the whole story before we meet by jumping between the two of us getting ready! Just great. We sat down in front of our new log burner with our new kitten ‘Neo’ and a glass of wine to watch them and it brought back all the shared joy from the day. Also so glad to have got the awesome group shots – we don’t think either of our families have ever had group photos like this taken before which is really special for them, and us. And we’re especially pleased with the wonderful nature shots, the wide bench and tall trees in particular are simply stunning, all so perfect, and just what we could have wished for. Cannot wait to choose some to have printed to be the first things to go up in our freshly painted house!”

First dance at a wedding in Croyde

Kat + Billy

Croyde Bay, North Devon

“Just WOW! Thank you so very very much for all the wonderful moments you caught on our wedding day. We adore them and genuinely cannot thank you both enough. Billy and I looked through them together last night, the perfect end to an evening before he goes away on a training exercise in the morning. We loved the playlist – perfect!

I knew our photographs would be fabulous because you were behind the camera and I adored all of the pictures you’ve taken and read all the beaming testimonials, but what I didn’t realise was that they would exceed my expectations and capture moments I missed or forgot had occurred and bring me so much joy in reliving them or to enjoy another that I wasn’t even part of. To be able to delight in a moment I didn’t know existed until now is a special feeling that is priceless. So many happy moments shared between our friends and family that they will be able to enjoy too.

There are so many stunning pictures that we have sooo many favourites because they each tell a different story. Billy and I had an absolutely incredible day – it goes so so fast. Thank you for giving us the perfect reminder to cherish and share forever.

We felt so comfortable with you both. We didn’t realise you were there for most of the day and when we did see you, you were so relaxed and understanding about everything. Thank you for being the dream team! I’m glad you were available to shoot our day. We hope you enjoyed your time with us too, through the chaos, the nerves, the hilarity and the literal uphill climb!! haha! As I said in my speech time is so precious so thank you for giving up some of yours to capture ours!

As we begin this new adventure I think about all my hopes for the future and how much I will want to cherish those moments too. If I fall pregnant I hope you will be able to take some snaps, when have a family I hope you will be able to take some then too. I don’t know if it is something you guys would do, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!! Hoping to meet you both again in the future.”

Thank you so much again – cannot recommend you both enough – The Porters xxxxxxxx”

“Wowee!! What an incredible selection of photos you guys, utterly stunned and overwhelmed by them, thank you so much! We really enjoyed having you as part of our day and couldn’t ask for more :) The photos are jogging great memories as it was all such a whirlwind, and it’s also great to see what all our guests were getting up to! I love the ones of us all dancing and the shots you took on the beach are magnificent, I don’t know how you did it!Thanks again xxx”

Lovely to also receive this email from Nick six months after their wedding day: “Hope you’re both well (and you’re getting/got some cracking autumn colour pictures – it’s been awesome weather out here in France!). Just to say me and Soph are going through our wedding pictures, as we find ourselves doing often, to select a few for Christmas presents for friends and family. I felt I had to email you both again to say thanks once more for what are an incredible collection of pictures! Hope to catch you for a beer sometime in the future… Until then!”

Katie + Donna

Lusty Glaze Beach

“They are everything we had hoped for and more. Our favourite is the one in the cave – it is incredible, however we loved them all. Thank you for being so wonderful on the day, we genuinely mean it when we say that you helped make our day so special. The way that you work together is lovely (my cousin described you as ‘photo ninjas’ because when she turned round you were there and then you were somewhere else). You clearly love your job and have a real passion for what you both do so wonderfully, and that really shines through. Take care & all our love :)”

“Sorry for the delay in getting back to you – we’ve been so wrapped up in looking at the photos/sharing them with friends! We are so happy with them! You have both done an amazing job and we are so happy that we chose you both to capture our day. We have had so many compliments on them already and all of our guests were saying how friendly you both were on the day. You’ve really captured how happy we were and how much love was going around on that day – loved all the crying pictures in the speeches!! Thank you so much again for everything! xx”

Amelia + David

St Keverne Church & Trelowarren

“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We hope that through this email you will come to understand, even just a small amount, how happy you have made both David and I. Thank you for giving us the gift of a thousand happy memories preserved forever in the form of beautiful, thoughtful, creative and simply wonderful photos.

When we sat and watched the slideshow last night (with a glass of wine and your playlist in the background!) we were completely overwhelmed by how incredible your photos are. You have both somehow managed to capture the true essence of the day: the joy, the tears and all the little details that really helped to make it the best day of our lives. We did not know what to expect but we were very hopeful and the reality is that your photos are even better than we could have ever imagined. Our hearts are full.

Thank you also for being an absolute pleasure to work with.  From when we first reached out to you all those months ago, through the email conversations, meeting up the week before the wedding and your kind, thoughtful and discreet presence on the day itself, right through to receiving our photos 4 weeks early (!); you made it easy for us to relax and enjoy the whole process, for which we are very grateful. We can’t wait to share the photos with our families as we know they will love them just as much as us. Thank you so much Keith and Abi, you are truly very special.xx”

Katie + Tom

Pynes House

“Oh wow!!!!! The photos are INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! We got a bowl of popcorn and a bottle of wine last night and played the photos in a slideshow with the music playlist. It was perfect! Thank you so much for perfectly capturing the best day of our lives.”

Lovely to receive this email from Tom shortly after: “I’ll just reiterate what my wife said… Amazing photos. Literally took our breath away and have thus far brought myself, Katie and her parents to tears. You captured the day perfectly and took some superb photos, we love that you guys were just always in the right place at the right time to capture what was happening. We could not be happier. You’re both wonderful people and bloody fantastic at your job! We will recommend you to all friends who get married in the future.”

Amazing wedding photographers 2016

Emma + Ale

The Alverton Hotel, Truro

“We only got back from honeymoon last weekend and weren’t expecting the pictures for another couple of weeks so you have given us a fantastic surprise for our first weekend at home as husband and wife. The pictures are just stunning and left us both speechless! We took your recommendation and sat down with some wine and the playlist and are just elated with how they’ve turned out! Thank you as well for your help on the day. You were fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to have captured our wedding. Everyone was full of praise for you. Thanks again and hope you are keeping well.”

Cristina + Joe

Pieve Romanica (near Lake Garda) + Convento dell’Annunciata

“A proper thank you card will follow in due course but, for the time being, Joe and I just want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work. Neither of you stopped all day and the lengths you went to in order to capture our wedding were really quite extraordinary, particularly given the heat!! Thanks also for changing your plans at short notice to join us in Italy. Lots of other photographers would have (understandably) pulled out in those circumstances and we really appreciate your dedication and commitment.

We also wanted to let you know how many compliments we received on the day about you both. So many people came up to us and commented on how friendly and warm you were, how impressed they were with your professionalism and teamwork and the fact that you weren’t intrusive in the least. Joe and I echo all of those comments. One of the bridesmaids (Emily) couldn’t get over how you managed to be everywhere all the time but were so discreet that she barely noticed you. In fact, we received just as many compliments about you guys as we did about the food and the setting etc!!

Joe and I felt completely relaxed in your presence. We hate having our photo taken and yet you made us feel completely at ease. Our little walk through the woods was one of the highlights of our day – it gave us a few minutes to ourselves to take everything in. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and getting to know you. Thanks again for everything.”

Lovely words from Cristina & Joe after seeing their photos: “I hope you are both well. Joe and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful photographs that we received just before our trip to Japan (hence the delay in getting in touch). You captured the day so beautifully with extraordinary attention to detail. Your hard work and exceptional talent is evident in every photo – I had very high expectations following Jasmine’s feedback but you managed to exceed them.

We really were blown away by the quality of the photos, so much so that it is impossible to choose our favourites for our flat, and we will treasure the images forever. My mum insists on showing the photos to anyone who steps foot in the house – I understand that she is driving our extended family mad! I also think Abi must have magical powers for making the preparations look so relaxed. The truth can be our little secret!

We have received so many compliments on the photos but perhaps the biggest compliment of all is the fact that my sister has booked you guys for her wedding next year. My sister and I are pretty competitive so this really is the highest form of praise. Joe and I are very much looking forward to see you both again next year, although if you could please make sure that our photos are a tiny bit better than El and Ed’s, that would be great ;-)”
