He was a true gentleman and went above and beyond in order to make our day extra special and provide us with memories which will be treasured for years to come. Simon, if you're reading this, thank you for everything. We could not have asked for a better photographer.”

“Simon is the most fantastic, talented photographer. It was an absolute pleasure having him shoot our special day. His photos are so unique and individual and his style suited us perfectly. On the day itself he was so very approachable and professional, able to accommodate our changing plans and organise the most wayward guests and spontaneous shots at a moment's notice. The photos he has captured go beyond anything we could have imagined. Our guests loved him, and so do we!”

“Simon put us at ease from our very first chat with him. We had a few emails and a call before the wedding and he was a warm calming presence on the day. We eloped and he kindly acted as a witness too. We had a lovely couple of hours shooting pics in a very relaxed non-posed style around Rydal and we are both so pleased with the quality of the pictures we have to remember our special day. I did lots of research around wedding photography and am so glad we found Simon. Thank you! 😊”

We really wanted our photos to help us look back at how bright and colourful the day was and our photos did not disappoint! Best in the business and looking forward to seeing you again at my sister-in-laws wedding. If our photos are anything to go by, her photos will be amazing too!”

It can be a daunting process when planning a wedding and Simon’s process from initial enquiry, online web portals and video calls made everything much easier for us. As for the photographs, Simon went above and beyond to capture our special day and we really appreciate all the hard work put in – the photographs are stunning, and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

“Me and my now husband Paul hired Simon for our wedding day and he was superb. Got all of the pictures we wanted and some we hadn't even thought of. His attention to detail was great and if you're getting married in the lake district his knowledge for the area will lead to some truly magnificent photos. His prior organisation and discretion on the day made him the perfect photographer for our big day. I can't recommend Simon enough.”

“Simon Hughes is the wedding photographer we cannot have done without! He is so much more than a photographer and he offered so much advice, many nuggets and ideas, things to avoid and to think about. And I haven't even started on the photographs, wow. They speak a thousand words, without those there would be so much lost. We really did love spending time with him, his work is incredible and we haven't disliked one thing. Thank you for everything!”

“Simon was absolutely brilliant on the big day, he made us feel so at ease and went out of his way to achieve the shots we were hoping for. All of Simon's photos captured the day perfectly from group photos to those natural moments you miss when the day goes by so quickly. Our absolute favourite photos have to be the ones taken at the lake, not only did Simon capture the scenery we love but also those moments between Bride and Groom when you are alone on your wedding day.”

Bride and Groom at Rayrigg Meadow in Lake District

“We booked Simon for our elopement and it was the best decision we ever made. He was incredible from start to finish. He recommended we added an extra hour onto the package to allow us time to travel to the lake and get some stunning photos, I honestly would tell anyone to do this as it really made the photos. He made both of us feel very calm and relaxed while taking photos and even sent us over a few snap shots the day after the wedding.”

“Simon was brilliant from start to finish. The process began with a great intro call running through ideas and specific photo opportunities at the venue, Silverholme Manor which Simon had worked a number of times. Always responded quickly to any questions we had before, on and after the big day. The pictures themselves and video of the ceremony have come out perfect, would highly recommend Simon!”

Surprise proposal at Inn on the Lake in the Lake District

“Thank you so much again for photographing our proposal. I'm over the moon with how the pictures turned out, we both are! It was a pleasure to have you there, we both loved your style of photography - right down to making us both feel so comfortable and at ease with the shoot, making sure our focuses were on each other, not you and having our pictures taken. Lois and her/my family absolutely love the photos, everybody is very impressed. Thank you again.”

We absolutely love our photos and will cherish them forever - Simon is an excellent photographer and I would recommend him for any occasion - thanks again Simon!”

“I’d give more than five stars if I could! Judging by the photos, Simon was everywhere and yet we barely noticed him. Anyone who has seen the photos has commented on the quality, the vibrancy, the colours, the variety and how perfect they are. In addition to unobtrusive and candid shots, our other main desire was to get a truly Cumbrian shot - one that was more about the scenery than us and boy did he deliver! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Simon to anyone.”
