Wedding Testimonials

Some of our clients are so happy about what we have achieved for them, they needed to let me know their feelings. I take it as a massive compliment that they feel the urge to let me know how they feel about our wedding photography. Here are some of the nice letters that we receive.


Dear Phil, We couldn’t have asked for someone better to capture the memories of our wedding day. The proof of that are the photographs (and the album) which will last with us for a lifetime. You were the perfect choice for our photographer. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you for all your help.

Love from Michelle & Andy Brook Woodcock – Beamish Hall

Dear Philip, Thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding in Bamburgh Castle, and for taking such fantastic photos. We are so happy with the pictures and they have given us lots of special memories of our wedding day. Enclosed is a picture of you and ken, which makes us smile, how does it fell to be on the other side of the camera.

Hi Phil, Just got a minute to say thanks for the way you were so understanding and the way you treated us on our wedding day.  We had an absolutely wonderful day where so many happy memories were made. It was great to have you there. I will never forget that image of you sitting in that huge chair as we were about to go into the ceremony. It made me and my Dad laugh…I hope the photo’s are good although I have no doubts that they will be fabulous.
Thanks again – Jo Atherton and Ian Brand or should that be Jo Brand!!!!! – 15th February 2009 – Beamish Hall

Hi Philip, Just been looking through the pictures and wanted to send you a really quick message to say what a wonderful job you’ve done, they are beautiful!!!!
Thank you for capturing these moments for us and for being so great with us all on the day. You and your colleague really did a great job of getting everyone for the photos and there are some fantastic ad hoc shots of people on the day – such as our friends in the maze and my dad with my mothers hat on! So many lovely pictures, we’re going to have trouble selecting only a few for the album 🙂
With warm regards
Amanda Baxter – 3rd July 2008 – Headlam Hall
