something that I feel has been missing from my wedding planning

“This guide is just brilliant!!  Honestly, something that I feel has been missing from my wedding planning – an independent guide that you know isn’t paid-for advertising like in all the magazines.

Thorough the content, with ample ‘air-time’ to each topic, and I love the recommendations of different suppliers.

I particularly like the logistics/timing section, and the ‘real’ wedding interview at the Slaughters Manor.”

What struck us at first was how he wasn’t pushing for a hard sell……instead he was interested in getting to get to know us both

We first met Lee at a wedding show in Cheltenham. What struck us at first was how he wasn’t pushing for a hard sell like a lot of other photographers were, but instead he was interested in getting to get to know us both. Ever since then Lee has been super friendly but professional and it helped make the day and photos far more relaxing. He captured our day perfectly and we were so happy with everything he did from start to finish. Even our guests were complimenting how brilliant he was.
We couldn’t believe how quickly he turned the photos around and it was a lovely touch sending us a small selection when he got home that very night.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lee to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer.

We’re so glad we found you Lee. Thank you so much!

Following a recommendation from a work colleague, Colin and I searched for Lee’s website and knew instantly that this was the type of natural, beautiful photography we’d like to have capturing our own wedding day. Looking through Lee’s galleries and watching the amazing highlights films, we crossed our fingers and emailed him in the hope that he’d be available on our wedding day. Within no time at all (as is always the case when it comes to any form of communication with Lee) we received a reply and we arranged to meet a few days later. We were extremely impressed with the high quality of the samples of work he brought along to show us and, equally importantly, having met and chatted to Lee, we knew immediately that we would all get on well together. From the outset Lee took the time to talk to us, get to know us and discover what was important to us when it came to our wedding photographs.

We selected a package which included an engagement shoot and were delighted with the fabulous shots he took on that occasion; we couldn’t wait until the big day itself. A couple of weeks before the wedding Lee visited us again to talk through the order of the day and get an idea on timings.
On the morning of the wedding he arrived at the venue and instantly struck up a great rapport with our children who were supporting us that day. During the ceremony we didn’t even realise he was in the room and yet we have the most incredible photographs that prove he was.

Lee is unobtrusive whilst he’s at work but at the same time always friendly and ready to join in with the banter and have a laugh and a joke with you. His attention to detail is second to none and he captured all of the special features and elements that made our wedding personal to us. As well as commenting on what a nice guy Lee is, many of our guests remarked on how efficient he was too. They were pleasantly surprised at how little time he spent taking traditional portraits and group shots, meaning that we spent our time enjoying the drinks reception and chatting to them instead!
Lee was with us until quite late into the evening but by the time we went to bed he had already emailed us a link so that we could have a sneak peak at our highlights.

Lee was happy to go along with the ideas that we had for photographs and proposed some of his own too. A few days later we had some wonderful surprises when he sent us the link to the rest of our photographs. We spent an emotional evening reliving our wedding day and seeing for the first time expressions and details we hadn’t even noticed on the day. As for the couples’ portraits, we were speechless! Please listen to Lee’s advice and put your trust in him when he suggests something because if you do it’s likely to result in some truly spectacular shots.

Just before our wedding day we decided to add a photo film to our package and I’m so grateful that we did. Lee compiled a DVD of our photographs and set them to a backing track of our wedding songs. We absolutely love it because it captures every emotion and brings the whole day back to life.

Lee instinctively knows what will make a good photograph and captures memories to treasure. He is always willing to go the extra mile to get candid, honest photos which retell the story of your wedding day so beautifully. Whilst highly professional, Lee is also a very friendly, likeable guy who instantly puts you at ease and gives you the chance to relax, thereby allowing him the opportunity to capture the truly magical, natural, shots he’s so good at.

We’re so glad we found you Lee. Thank you so much!

Dont hesitate to book Lee for your memorable wedding photography!

We first met Lee at the Billesley Manor Wedding Fayre. He made a good impression on us right away and the relaxed nature of his photography style appealed to my wife & myself. We booked him up for our big day at The Charlecote Pheasant just outside Stratford on Avon on Friday 27th September & are glad we made that choice. On the day it flew by & we hardly noticed Lee but from the outcome of the fantastic photos he was in all the right places to get the best shots for us to look back on our special day. Dont hesitate to book Lee for your memorable wedding photography! Love Vicky & Adam Pettit.

…horrendous rain all day. Lee came outside umbrella in hand and took some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen.

I cannot recommend Lee enough, he is lovely, approachable, professional from the first meeting, all the way through his time with you. Me and my Husband wanted a photographer who just melted in the background and captured natural moments with our friends and family and we definitely got that. On my wedding day it was most brides nightmare horrendous rain all day. Lee came outside umbrella in hand and took some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. Lee with my friends and family helped to make my wedding very special and I cannot thank him enough for it. I have got some friends who will be getting married this year and next year and it should come as no surprise what photographer I will be recommending.
