Feedback like this from our lovely bride Fiona, whose wedding we documented at Pangdean Barn in Sussex last year, brings me unimaginable joy! Capturing someone’s wedding day is so much more than a job or a way to earn a living, it is what we truly love to do and each of our clients holds a special place in our hearts. Thank you Fiona for this beautiful recollection of the journey we shared:
When Fiona & Rob met Nicola & Glen…
Glen and Nicola’s genuine warmth, charisma and ultimately their friendliness had stood out from the start and when the time came to book our photographers they would be our first and only choice. During our initial meetings, I was transfixed by not just the incredible quality of their work, but by their open sincerity and desire to get to know us as people, as a couple, and not just as clients. Working with a wedding photographer is such a personal and intimate process, something which I hadn’t really appreciated as a ‘novice bride’ at the time, and I will be forever grateful that we chose these two people; it was a pleasure to know Glen and Nicola and to have had them in our lives during such a special time.
We had loved the idea of the engagement shoot: particularly Rob, who doesn’t enjoy having his photograph taken. Glen and Nicola made us feel so relaxed and comfortable throughout a very cold but beautiful day in Cheltenham, and the result was not just a selection of gorgeous wintery photos but a confirmation that we had found the best photographers possible.
Visiting Glen and Nicola’s stunning home and studio each time was also a really enjoyable part of the process. They offer a service which is both casual and natural, as if you’re visiting friends you’ve known for years, but also entirely professional, allowing you to put your trust in them completely. Watching the slideshow of our engagement photos was a wonderful experience and only made us more excited about the eventual unveiling of the wedding pictures.
Glen and Nicola were interested in every tiny detail of the wedding day, particularly in who our guests were, and whether there were any ‘family situations’ that they should be aware of. I thought this was so impressive, as I know from friends’ experiences that not all photographers take the time to consider all the factors that could affect someone’s wedding day.
On the wedding morning itself, my bridesmaids and I were so excited when Glen and Nicola arrived. Seeing them perfectly on time, immaculately turned out and full of energy and enthusiasm was the icing on the cake of an already amazing morning. My bridesmaids were captivated by Glen and Nicola’s genuinely friendly yet professional work process, and we still love to chat about how much fun we had during the getting ready photos. Everything was perfect down to the last detail. During the day they made us and our guests feel completely at ease, alternating seamlessly between organising group photos with efficiency and good humour, and capturing intimate moments through being invisible. As a team, they got some fantastic shots that you couldn’t have achieved with only one photographer.
Glen and Nicola – you were the best photographers that we could have ever wished for. Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding experience so perfect.
