“Simon captured everything we asked and more. He managed to blend into the background and capture some amazing natural shots! We had rain on our wedding day (meant to be lucky) and still managed to get all the pictures we wanted; even encouraged us to go outside and get the shots we so desperately wanted! Professional, flexible and creative! Thank you so much 😊”

“Simon was absolutely incredible and so professional and our wedding photos are just perfect! The way Simon captured us in the setting was amazing and we are so glad we booked him for our wedding. Being based in the lakes gives him a superb eye for the surroundings and where to get the perfect shot. He let us know what was happening every step of the way and even helped me get my Louboutins on. Simon is so much more than ‘just a photographer’. We could not recommend him and Sam (videographer) enough!”

“Simon was a first hand gentleman of his trade. From the very beginning of our wedding journey he helped us to determine which photos would be taken for our wedding, arranged all the guests [for group photos] on the day, made it all very stress free and was a joy to work with. The photo quality was amazing and he captured some great real time shots of the day, to the point we actually forgot he was there, in a good way. He was very relaxed and I can’t recommend him enough for a wedding photographer.”

“We cannot recommend Simon highly enough! Simon was so helpful and reassuring from the moment we contacted him and we knew we were in the best hands. He has a lovely, calming approach and works closely with you to make sure you capture the very best of your day. We had so many comments from family and friends about how professional and thorough he was. Our photos are amazing and the wedding wlbum captures every perfect moment of our special day. Thank you Simon you really are the best!”

We booked Simon for our elopement wedding in October and he was absolutely brilliant at capturing every detail of our day and going out of his way with our thoughts and ideas. The pictures will last a life time and for the price as well we honestly could not thank you enough Simon x”

“We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day! Simon took the time to meet us beforehand and was very experienced in talking us through the day, making sure we had covered every detail beforehand so that the day would run as smoothly as possible. He was an incredibly calm presence at our wedding while capturing everything we could have asked for and more! We are absolutely in love with our pictures and the overall experience on the day and cannot recommend Simon enough!”

“We chose Simon to capture our wedding memories from other people's reviews and Simon did not disappoint. We live far from the lakes so we never got the chance to meet Simon before hand, but from the moment we met, he made us feel so comfortable. He took us to the most beautiful places for the most perfect pics. Simon is very passionate about what he does and he honestly was a big part of our day. The finished images are amazing!”

“We were so pleased we chose Simon as our photographer. He was a really friendly and easy to get along with person. He felt like someone you wanted to spend your wedding day with! We were really pleased with our photos and album. He also went the extra mile to arrange a videographer as part of our package, which we were so grateful for as it’s amazing how much you forget when you’re a bag a nerves! The whole experience was easy, good quality and good value. We definitely would recommend him!”

“Simon captured our wedding perfectly. From start to finish he was fantastic. We met beforehand for a pre shoot and chat about how the day is planned and he instantly put us at ease. He captured moments we didn't know he would and looking back those are the most incredible. His style fit us perfectly and I would very highly recommend. He worked really well alongside our videographer Sam, who both together have made magical memories for us for years to come! Thank you so much, we are eternally grateful!”

“Honestly cannot recommend Simon enough. In the lead up to the day Simon was super organised, and managed to learn all the family names which my mum was very impressed with. When Simon arrived into the chaos that was pre-wedding getting ready he just went with it and still managed to get some stunning photos. Through the day he was brilliant at getting everyone organised and whisked us away for some beautiful lake side photos. So many of the guests have said how brilliant Simon was. Thank you so much!”

He was incredible (as you can see by the photos!) and really made us feel at ease and just have fun! 😌 If you/or if you know of anyone who is getting married in the Lake District we would definitely recommend choosing him as your photographer! 📷”

Bride and groom at New House Farm in the Lake District

“Simon did an amazing job capturing every part of our wedding day! I couldn't wish for anyone better! We met up a few weeks beforehand to go through things and did a pre wedding shoot. On the day itself he was prompt, remained very professional all day but also mixed in with our guests. And the result pictures are exactly what we wished for! Would recommend to anyone!”

“We cannot recommend Simon enough. Simon went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and ensured that both us and our guests were at ease throughout the day. We couldn’t be happier with the photos; they are simply stunning, from the small details right through to the unforgettable lakeside shots – he has managed to capture everything we wanted in such a beautiful way. Simon is such a talented photographer, and a true gentleman. If we could give more than 5 stars, then we would!”

“We are so pleased that we asked Simon to capture our day, from the first phone call Simon was a pleasure to deal with. Simon gave us lots of tips and advice before and on the day, lots of our guests commented on how good Simon was with everyone and how he was always looking for a good photo opportunity. Simon didn't stop all day long. We really can't rate Simon enough and he captured our day brilliantly, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thank you Simon.”

The photos are unlike any others I've seen, Simon is really imaginative when it comes to his photography so you can guarantee your photos will be both stunning and unique! Best of all, he makes you feel at ease all the way through your wedding journey from planning the photos to capturing the shots.”

“Simon was our photographer for our elopement. He was very easy to communicate with and had great knowledge of the location, knowing the best spots to get amazing photos. As it was a small wedding, we wanted to have it live streamed which Simon set up for us. The quality was excellent and friends and family were able to leave comments to congratulate us. We are very happy with our photos and video. We would highly recommend. Thank you Simon!”

“I am blown away with the photos of our day, they are absolutely incredible, half of the photos he took I didn't even realise he was there. Simon knew I mainly wanted natural, unstaged photos and he absolutely delivered with those! Simon thank you so so much for everything, for the amazing photos, knowing exactly what I wanted when I didn't really know myself, being so good with the children and giving us amazing memories of the day. You are amazing at what you do and I'm so glad we chose you!”

“Would highly recommend Simon as a wedding photographer. He was friendly, knowledgeable and easy to contact throughout the whole process. Simon provides a high quality service and is flexible depending on your individual needs/wants. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day he put us both at ease and captured so many gorgeous photos, we can't choose our favourite! The online gallery and photo book Simon produced are beautiful and we have some amazing memories we can treasure forever.”

“Simon truly did an amazing job with our wedding photographs. From the first consultation to the day itself the entire process was fantastic. He is so easy to get along with so it’s no surprise that communication from the very start was flawless. We didn’t really know what we wanted from our photos, but Simon definitely had this covered with so many ideas to get the most beautiful and unique shots. If you're considering a Lake District wedding, definitely choose Simon!”

Bride and groom at Rydal Cave in Lake District

“Simon was brilliant from start to end.
On the day, storm Dudley made an appearance but this didn’t phase Simon one bit (we geared up and off we went on our walk to Rydal caves). He captured the most beautiful photos of our day and we couldn’t be happier with them. The sneak previews were sent very quickly and the comments we have had about our wedding photos have been amazing! People haven’t seen anything like them before and that’s exactly what we wanted! Couldn’t recommend Simon enough! X”

“I CANNOT recommend Simon enough for your wedding photographer, he goes above and beyond to ensure you have the most perfect photos. On the day of our wedding, Simon turned up and made me feel at ease and was so down to earth and lovely to converse with. After the ceremony he was not shy or discouraged that it was pouring with rain outside, he simply popped on his coat and hat and away we went which was amazing. The BEST photographer 📸 🤩 Thanks so much Simon”

“Simon is a great photographer, who is friendly, easy to work with, and has a great eye for composition. He made planning the photos we would like easy, and put everyone at ease before our wedding, therefore making the actual wedding day that much easier and enjoyable. Creation of the album was really easy with the online tools he uses, and when our album arrived, we loved it. It's was fascinating to see the little moments, expressions and nuances the camera catches that otherwise would have been missed.”

“Simon was amazing from start to finish. During our initial consultation he made notes of so many details to ensure we got the pictures we wanted. The day went seamless and we are over the moon with our shots. Simon's outdoor portraits of us on the jetty and on the hill overlooking the lake are breathtaking. He really did go above and beyond to capture these amazing shots. I couldn’t recommend Simon enough. Thank you for capturing our day so amazingly.”

“I couldn't recommend Simon enough. Simon made sure he captured everything we had in mind and went through this before the big day. He didn't feel intrusive or ever rush us. We wanted our photos "natural" and to capture what was important to us and he did just this. After returning home and announcing our elopement our family/friends were excited to view our photos and they definitely didn't disappoint! 100% recommend!”
