Kind Words

Hi Chris,

thank you so much, the photos are amazing!!! We loved how you captured all the details, some of the things I now saw- thanks to you- for the first time (I didn’t see them at the day as it was all so busy e.g. the board with ‘reserved for Luigi and Anna’, or the fire engine people told us about but we didn’t see) Thank you so much for looking out for all these details; that way Luigi and I can enjoy them now!!

You and Jay did a wonderful job and it was lovely to have you there!! You captured all the right moments and were so friendly and fun!! Again, thank you!!!!!

May I ask if it is at all possible to get the photos on a disc or USB stick (I pay for the stick and postage, no problem) as I tried to work with dropbox and it has beaten me…. I didn’t have it before, got it now, but it won’t sync or do anything helpful really, maybe the file is too big or my internet too slow, I don’t know.

Many thanks again for your amazing work, we are so grateful for these lovely photos!!!

Anna and Luigi 

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for the wonderful photographs. We are both absolutely delighted with them. You have captured the events of the day but more importantly (and more difficultly) you have captured the atmosphere and spirit of it too. And all this whilst being utterly unobtrusive, fairly priced and totally user friendly. Keep up the good work. 

We will have no hesitation in using you again at the next opportunity and you will be our first call. I will strongly recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer. Feel free to use me as a reference whenever needed (or use this email on your website etc).

Best wishes and keep up the good work!

“Chris is a photographer who went the extra mile to make sure we were absolutely thrilled with everything on our wedding day. From helpful suggestions on the best shots during our pre-wedding meeting to capturing the perfect shots in the church and reception, Chris was the perfect photographer and achieved the best photo album we could have ever dreamed of.

Apart from being an excellent and very professional photographer, Chris is an amazing person who is very easy to work with and understood very quickly the type of photographs we wanted to achieve.

We loved his style of photography, his professional nature and his personable approach making him a perfect photographer for any wedding whom we couldn’t recommend highly enough.

“Hi Chris.

We will be in touch soon because we would really like an album once we have saved up again.

Will you pass our thanks on to John as well please?

So happy with them :)”

“Absolutely amazing photographer!!! We had a magical day and CWM photography captured it beautifully. We love every single one of our photos and had such a great day not just at the wedding but the pre wedding shoot also. Couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Chris x”

Fran and Kevin

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Chris and his colleagues for the most amazing and beautiful wedding pictures! We cannot stop flicking through the images and reliving the whole day. Chris and his colleagues have an amazing talent in spotting the perfect opportunities for pictures and have captured all the special moments perfectly. His professionalism and service was faultless and he was open to suggestions and ideas we had for some of our shots – and more importantly, he told us what looked good and what didn’t!

Chris understood what we wanted from our shots from the get go and made us feel at ease. He and his colleagues were discreet and unobtrusive throughout the day and it felt like having additional friends at our wedding. At one point we even had him and his colleague passing on messages from the bridal party to the groomsmen as we were running late due to bad weather and had poor phone signal where we were!

All of our families and friends have been so impressed with the pictures that almost everyone has asked us who our photographer was and how did we manage to find him! We would not hesitate to recommend Chris and his colleagues to anyone who wants beautiful pictures, professional and engaging photographers and nice people to take part in your day!!”

Jess and Paul

“Excellent! We were both so so happy with all of our wedding photos- what a great service. Chris was so friendly and we would not hesitate to recommend CWM photography to all of our friends, everything was perfect. Thank you!”

Jossie and Helen

“Chris,

I’ve just seen I hadn’t sent this message! So sorry! The pictures are wonderful, we love them so much, thank you!

Liz and I have spent the last week, travelling round, visiting family and showing them off. Everyone agrees that you captured the day, and some lovely moments, perfectly. It was a pleasure to have you guys with us.

Hope you’ve both been keeping busy, and a million thank-you’s to you and Cathie, once again,

Kindest regards,

Tory”

“It has been over a year since the wedding – and still, when I flick through my album, I get drawn back to the day and to each and every moment – thanks to the great photos and thanks to Chris!

When planning my wedding, it was very important to me to have a photographer who is professional and yet, who doesn’t just take photos for living, but with a passion. As I like photography myself, I was looking for someone who has got a similar style and attention to detail so when looking at ‘wedding photos’ in google images – one particular picture caught my eye, and took me to Chris’s website. After exchanging couple of emails with Chris – I knew he is the one and I was relieved when he confirmed his availability on such a short notice.

Having Chris and his colleague at my wedding was like having 2 extra friends there. The moment Chris walked through the door with beaming smile on his face, telling me I needed more blusher as otherwise I will look too pale on the photos – was exactly what I needed! I completely forgot about being nervous… and also forgot about my wedding bouquet… luckily Chris knew what he was doing and rescued the forgotten flowers! While Chris was taking photos of me and my dad, heading up to the church, Chris’s colleague was already at the church, capturing all the moments I would have otherwise missed.

I had a complete trust in Chris and apart from couple of ‘compulsory’ group/family photos I gave him a free hand in capturing whatever catches his eye. What I love most about Chris’s photos, is that he skilfully captured not only the beautiful venue, the people, the gardens, the details, the moments, but also the feelings. And that’s something quite unique…

Chris is an amazing photographer as well as a very likeable person who quickly became part of my wedding crowd. He is also extremely professional and I was amazed that he decided to visit the venue in advance so he can take some test-shots and get familiar with the layout.

So, if you are looking for photos, that will allow you to re-live your big day anytime in the future – then Chris is the right photographer for you too.”

Petra & Geoff

“Amazing!! Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and team.. you really captured our day perfectly and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anybody! xx”

“Stunning pics and very friendly staff, made my cousins wedding perfect”

Donna Roe

“My photos for both my pre-wedding shoot and wedding day are absolutely perfect and display every aspect of the day so perfectly. Seeing moments I missed, and remembering the happiest day of my life in such beautiful and clever photos will be something I will cherish and enjoy for all my life. Chris and his team were faultless and made everyone at ease and have a laugh with the photos. How I will manage to select shots for an album when I love them all I don’t know! Thank you so much Chris, you have brought my day to life for years to come.”

Alex Tomlins

“Chris was an absolute star! Very professional, friendly and willing to go that extra mile. Our images were great. His direction was on the money. We would and have recommended him to others. If you are looking for that special day and want a resaonable price for outstanding work, Chris is your man. B&M”

Benjamin & Marie

“Thank you so much Chris, the photos are amazing and we were both surprised by how many we received, there are 100’s!. I would also like to thank you for being so discreet, we hardly even knew you were there. Thanks again and all the best in the future with your business.”

Peter & Sue

“Wow your pics are amazing… Nat and Rick will have wonderful memories forever… I will be in touch throughout Kyia’s stages of growing for some truely wonderful pics…”

“Thank you so much for the amazing photos of our wedding day, and for getting them to us so quickly after our return from honeymoon. Everyone has really enjoyed them and we’ve received a lot of compliments. You did a great job.”

Julia & Orion

“It was a real pleasure to meet Chris and Dave when they ventured up north to take the photos for my daughter’s wedding. They showed absolute professionalism, and were unobtrusive, generous with their time, courteous and friendly.

They carried out their work with great enthusiasm, energy and enjoyment.

The pictures are stunning and capture perfectly the joyous mood of the day.

I cannot commend them too highly.

Thank you very much!”

Veronica & Dave

“CWM Photography were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day! In fact not just on the wedding day but before and after too. Chris and his team are friendly, professional and have a gift at making people feel at ease in front of the camera!! We had several conversations before the wedding to discuss what we did and didn’t want, such as style, colours, locations. This could have been quite a daunting task but Chris was so helpful and had plenty of ideas to make it easy for us!! Chris and Dave managed to capture every moment of the day without ever ‘getting in the way’! They helped to guide the day along, not just taking photos but making sure we carried out our bride and groom duties…. One thing I must mention is that without them, we’d have completely forgotten about our cake! The main thing to say is that they take truly beautiful photographs!! They make use of everything around… beautiful gardens, the weather, the sky, the people, the buildings…. capturing unusual but stunning memories. They even stopped on the drive over from the church to the reception and took some lovely photos of the landscape!!We expected Chris and Dave to leave after the first dance but were so pleased when they decided to stay a bit longer and photograph the band!! The band where my new husband took to the stage as Brian May!! The photos are absolutely amazing and we’re so happy to have professional photos capturing the true spirit of Queen! 🙂 Chris and Dave went above and beyond what I expected from photographers. In fact, after the build up waiting for Queen to arrive on stage, they pulled the stage curtains back to introduce the band! Far better than Freddie Mercury doing it himself!! The after wedding service was just as good as the day itself! Within a couple of days we had a ‘sneak peek’ of photos and then not long after, 100 beautiful photos to look at. With CWM, gone are the days of waiting weeks to see your photos!!All of our guests have commented how lovely the photos are and how easy Chris and Dave made the day.When we got back from our honeymoon 2 weeks after the wedding, the full album of photos was ready and waiting for us!! Fantastic! With so many amazing photos, the hard part for us now is choosing our favourites for the photo album! In summary, we would not hesitate to recommend CWM Photography”

“CWM photography did an absolute fantastic job at our wedding in june. chris is an absolute brilliant photographer he really made us feel at ease to be honest we didnt even know they were there half the time.”

Duane & Hayley

“CWM Photography are absolutely incredible. Chris and his team shot our wedding in May 2012, and from the moment we booked to when recieved our photos, we were blown away.

Chris chatted to us first about what styles we like and what direction to go in. He immediately put us at ease with what we thought would be a daunting task.

On the day, Chris arrived in good time at the hotel where we were getting ready, and took my mind off the nerves completely. He was a great laugh, fantastic with my four year old niece and the whole wedding party, and despite the chaos didn’t get in the way whatsoever. This continued throughout the day, and what we anticipated to be a bit of a nightmare, coordinating our vast family for some formal group shots was a breeze for Chris!

The one on one shots after the ceremony were inspired – Chris knew exactly what he was doing, and saw our surroundings with a real artistic eye.

We were so thrilled with the way it went on the day, but nothing prepared us for how perfectly the photos turned out. Each and every one (and there were over 500!!) is fantastic. Never mind an album – these will adorn the walls of our home!

We cannot recommend CWM enough -we have something so wonderful to cherish, that captured our day to a tee, and the experience from start to finish was flawless.”

Lauren & Duncan

“Hi Chris

Picked up the disk from the sorting office this evening and have just finished looking at all the photographs. I have to say they are amazing – you and Steve (apologies if I have got your colleague’s name wrong) have done a fantastic job – they are really natural (even the more posed ones) and everyone looks extremely happy and thoroughly enjoying themselves. They really took me back to the best day of my life (minus the 10 minutes where we were a bit stressed over the DJ not having turned up!!) and I can’t wait to show them to Phil when he gets back from Singapore.

The service you have delivered through out has been top class. From first introductions and answers to the many questions I had, to fast and efficient responses to emails and the issue with the post office; from the pre-wedding meeting in February to the actual day itself; you have been professional, reassuring and really easy to work with, I would thoroughly recommend you to people looking for a photographer. Please let me know if you would like me to write a testimonial/feedback on your website, I would be happy to oblige!

I wish you all the best in the future and a huge thank you for capturing our perfect day!

Karen (and Phil)”

“Me and Billy just want to say a huge thank you to you and the guys for making our day so special and perfect! The pictures are amazing we really couldn’t have asked for anything more, you’ve don us proud!

We really had the best day, we had some right laughs (especially the shots with the cars! He he) we just wish we could do it all again!

CWM Photography Is absolutely fabulous and a highly professional service. Chris is the nicest guy and so talented at what he does, he goes that extra mile to make you feel at ease. He knows exactly what he’s doing and has great ideas for the kind of shots you want. It was a real pleasure to work with him, he was so friendly and really made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera.

Chris you went above and beyond for us and we really can’t praise you and the guys enough, thank you once again for capturing the best day of our lives and we wish you all the best.

Luv Sadie and Billy XxX

P.S anyone looking for a brilliant photographer we highly recommend.

We will be in touch soon about sorting out an album.”
