As wedding photographers we are always humbled and delighted to receive so many kind words and testimonials from you, our lovely couples, whether written, spoken, emailed, texted or left as comments on the blog. It is always a privilege to share a wedding day with you. We respect the trust you have placed in us, and we are thrilled to have exceeded your expectations. Thank you.

Dear Steve,

Thank you for helping make our wedding day the most memorable day ever! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with.

Sam and Carissa



We just wanted to say thank you for photographing our wedding. You made us and everyone feel at ease on the day and the end result is beautiful. We love each and every one of our photos – so thank you.

Lots of love, Myah and Dave


Dear Steve

We really cannot emphasise enough how thrilled we all were to have you with us to share such a special occasion, and how very appreciative we are to have Steve on board to record the proceedings in your own special, calm, personal and professional way. I have lost count of how many compliments we have had from guests!

Claire and John, mum and dad of Jack, who married Julie.


Dear Steve

Thank you for being such an amazing part of our wedding. Not only were your photos beautiful, the way you looked after us and cared for us and our families was greatly appreciated.

Love Dalia and Imran


Dear Steve

We absolutely love the photographs and feel very privileged to have been lucky enough to have you record the special moments of our day. It was lovely having you there and we are so grateful to you for all your hard work on the day.

Charlotte and Ben



Thank you so much for your efforts being our wedding photographer – from the first meeting we knew you were the right man for the job and you have certainly shown this!

Throughout the day  you were so professional and produced images that are beautiful reminders of our wedding and celebrations. Our continued thanks for the work you are currently putting into our album.

Our very best wishes

Tom and Becky Drew


Dear Steve

Thank you so much for taking our photos on the day you were a delight to work with.
From the first chat we had you made us feel at ease and we knew that you would take fantastic photos in a style of our liking.
Thank you for spending so much time pre-wedding visiting and exploring the venue with us to make sure we got the best photos – I believe it helped massively.
On the day the photos were amazing and having two of you gave us great opportunities for different views of our wedding day.
We loved the fact that you captured everything from Claire getting ready to me in the pub, the service from different angles and the venue and our guests in numerous different ways.
Overall you managed to capture our perfect day with images that absolutely blow us away and for that, thank you.

Kind regards

Claire and Alex


Dear Steve

Thank you so much for all your amazing work on our wedding day. The photos are better than we could have ever hoped for! And we already have friends asking for your details. You were so wonderful to work with and I truly hope we have the chance to work together again!

Best wishes,

Isabel and Jon

Dear Steve

Paul and I just wanted to thank you so much for being exactly what we wanted our wedding photographer to be. I know it is nearly 18 months since that rainy day at The Bay Tree last August, but now we have our final album I just had to write formally to say how impressed we were with the whole ‘Steve Shipman’ experience, and of course the amazing photographs!

Every part of the service from our first meeting at the wedding fayre, right through to choosing our layout for the book was professional and personal and made us feel very special – we couldn’t have wished for anything more. Everyone who has seen our shots has commented on them and we feel so lucky to have such artistic and glamorous keepsakes from our day. We watched the DVD back on our first anniversary, through a few joyful tears (!) and enjoyed reliving some memories! We wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to any bride and groom – we are only sorry we can’t do it all again (although there is always vow renewal, so you never know!)

We are thrilled with our final album and look forward to showing it to Lola in years to come. You really captured the day, the mood and the atmosphere and somehow made it seem easy! We felt at ease from the moment you arrived and we wouldn’t have wanted to share such an intimate occasion with any other photographer. You are obviously passionate about what you do – and it shines through in your manner and your shots, in short we think you are FABULOUS!!

We wish you all the very best and thanks again.

Louise and Paul


Dear Steve
We have just returned from our belated honeymoon which was timed perfectly with the arrival of our wedding album.
The quality of the album is fantastic and shows your stunning photography off perfectly.
Our memories will last forever and we cannot stop showing it to our friends and family re-living the love and laughter together.
With kind regards and many thanks

Katie and Tim


Hi Steve

Just wanted to drop you a quick email regarding our wedding photos Vicky came and collected yesterday. We sat down last night to watch the slideshow and we couldn’t be happier if we tried, madam consumed several tissues keeping her eyes dry! I had no doubt you’d do a fantastic job and you certainly came up trumps. I think you did an excellent job of capturing the day and I can’t really put into words how pleased we both are.

The actual day went perfectly from our point of view, apart from the fact it was over too quickly! Yourself and Dana were brilliant on the day and looking at the photos you must have been everywhere, capturing all the aspects of the day without anybody really noticing you were there! Your professionalism, enthusiasm and guidance on the day made everything go so smoothly.

Thank you for providing us with a set of photos that captured the wedding so perfectly and remind us of our special day.

Vicky and Pete


Really where can we start, Quite simply you are fantastic!
No doubt about it, you have provided us with the best possible record of our Wedding day. We can feel the fun, love and laughter every time we look at your beautiful pictures.
You managed to capture each and every detail, the tender and romantic, the unplanned and funny, and the ‘mustn’t miss moments’ including my father walking in during my hair and make-up in only his shirt and Y-fronts!
You were utterly delightful. We couldn’t have imagined two people we would rather have had there on our big day. You helped in all sorts of ways, and added a happy, positive vibe from the very moment you arrived.
Our guests observed how you seemed to be everywhere all at once but never in the way – impressive!
From the get-go you made us feel relaxed and confident, and certainly managed to bring out the best in us all.

We are so SO glad that we found you.

To put it simply  – We will cherish your photographs for the rest of our lives and for that we can’t thank you enough.

With Love and Kind wishes,

Poppy and Boz

We just got your package and I just want to say thank you so much, it was such a lovely surprise and really, really sweet of you. We’ve had nothing but absolute compliments on the photos, and people asking about you and everything, because the photos were just amazing. I want to say thank you for what you did on the day, and thank you for these slideshows, it really excited our parents no end, and we really appreciate it.

Lea and Daniel


The more I look at them the more I fall in love with your work! You have really provided us the most incredible record of the day – and the funny thing is, When I look at them they seem to transport me instantly back into the very moment they were captured …  the sounds, the tastes and best of all the feelings!!!

so anyway, I LOVE THEM!

Poppy and Boz


Wow! Your photos are absolutely stunning, we love every single one! You were fantastic, everyone commented on how unobtrusive you were, you really captured the feel of the day! Our parents were so touched by your gift – thank you! We can’t wait to see our album – we have no doubt it will be just as amazing as everything else you have done for us.


Kate and Dan


Hi Steve,

Many thanks for sending the photo discs and book. We have looked through all of them (many times now!) and we absolutely love them. They are fantastic and really capture the fun that everyone had on the day its self.
I’ve also had a number of people say that they spoke to you, had their photos taken and said that you were great with them, so thanks very much for helping our guests feel so comfortable. The smiles and laughing in the photos reflects this. The portraits are also beautiful and we are really struggling deciding which ones to send to family / print off / put up on our walls! Spoiled for choice!
Once again, many thanks (to both of you!) for your help in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself and also many thanks for the fantastic photos that you have delivered for us. We really couldn’t be happier!

Simon and Maria


Dear Steve,
We have just seen all the photos via the link that you sent us.
We are absolutely delighted with the results.  The images are outstanding and we are both very impressed by what you managed to capture that day.  They really look like “us” and we are both especially happy that we look so natural together in the shots.
I can see that they have been enhanced very sensitively and expertly, and I especially appreciate how you play with the depth of field and colours to assist the composition.
I realise that you must have been working extremely hard in order to have those shots ready for us, so thank you for all your hard work.
We will really treasure the occasion now that it has been so beautifully documented.  Marianna was in tears (again) at re-living the day!
With love,

Marianna and Phil


Hi Steve,
Thank you so much for the beautiful albums! The presentation of them is lovely and we are really pleased with the ‘story’ effect. Our parents adore the albums for them too, they were a surprise and really appreciated.
Thank you so much again! We have lots of friends who have recently got engaged and one of them already has said they are going to contact you, which we fully encouraged! Although you may be booked up but I said to her to try you!
Very best wishes,

Sasha and Miles xxx


I just want to say that we cannot thank you enough for capturing our magical day with such stunning photography. While away on our honeymoon I started to worry that I would forget parts of the day, it is such a euphoric experience that it is difficult to absorb every detail on the day. I need not have worried! When we received our package from you and watched the slideshow, we really felt the emotion of the day all over again. Everyone who has seen the photos has agreed that they are stunning and have been so impressed that you captured every special moment in such a beautiful way. We had a really tight budget but we knew from the start that we wanted to get the very best photographer we could and were prepared to sacrifice other elements of the day in order to do so. We could not have made a better choice! It is not just the beautiful photographs, which will be a lasting reminder of the best day of our lives, you were both so professional but also attentive, supportive and good humoured, it was such a pleasure to have you there as part of our day. We have been telling everyone we know how fantastic you are and that we cannot recommend you enough, thanks a million again for everything.

Louise and Steve


Dear Steve, I don’t know what to say – the photographs were breathtaking, and having them set to music really brought the day back to us and had me in tears for an hour! Thanks again for everything, we realise how important the photographs are to preserving our memories of the day and you have surpassed all of our hopes and expectations.

Harriet and Gavin


Steve, what can we say?? the photos are amazing! I’m a little speechless. we got them this morning at 7 am and sat up watching the dvd blubbing away. they are perfect. thanks so much. oh and we loved the element of surprise with the step by step guide. I think it was perfect timing as we were starting to feel like it was sooooooo long ago! (only 3 weeks!!!) I also just want to thank you for my little present. its so thoughtful and its lovely to have actual photos to look at with the added bonus that you have chosen such a beautiful selection. it’s so appreciated. you have captured everything that we wanted and more. thanks from the bottom of our hearts

Jess and Matt


We got the photos and because I was on call we had to wait until the weekend to look at them. They are simply AMAZING!!!. We couldn’t be more thrilled. There are so many photos where we were like we have to frame this one and this one and this one and this one! My parents have seen it this weekend as well and they absolutely love them! We both loved the blast as well what a fantastic idea. We are just so so so happy with the photos and the whole package you offered that we keep raving to everyone about you. Honestly Steve, it was probably the best decision of the whole wedding picking you as our photographer!

Lalani and Rupert


We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the part you both played in making our wedding so special. All our guests have commented on not just the superb photographs, but on how lovely you were on the day. Our pictures have exceeded our expectations, and have captured moments and expressions so personal to us. We also greatly appreciate the attention to detail that has created such a beautiful album. You ensured that we felt wonderful and this shows in the pictures, you really did find our inner model and we have had comments saying that some of the photographs look straight out of a magazine. Thank you so much.

Sam and David


I still can’t get over how much work goes into this – worth every penny!

Celeste and Ben


I hope these testimonials have given you an idea of the appreciation our clients show for our photography. Please contact me and let’s meet up to see what we can do for you.
