The icing on the cake for me is the feedback. It reminds me that I'm doing something right, and makes me feel all fuzzy! Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to write in - it really does mean a lot.







'All back safely from a from a very splendid time and back to ‘full on’ work! We have received the DVD with the great photos that really captured our lovely long awaited day. Printed copies have already been sent to various friends and family. Thank you for joining in the spirit of our day. Our own budding family photographer, Sophie, was very excited to be able to use your camera and keeps insisting that if she every gives up her job as a maths teacher, photography is her bag! Hope you like the  attached photo, you are certainly smiling.' Max & Nav

'The photos were waiting for us on the doormat when we got home and they are fantastic. We have been through them a number of times and have no idea which ones we are going to put into an album! We also wanted to say what a pleasure it was to have you at our wedding. You were so relaxed and patient and contributed to us having the most wonderful day. We got so many comments from the guests on how great you were as well. Thank you so very much.' Clair and Dave

'This is rather a belated but really big thank you for our wedding photos & all you did on the day & before. So many weddings are ruined by a photographer who wants to take over the day but it was a pleasure to have you at the wedding. In fact, several people commented on how unobtrusive you were & what a refreshing approach you have. We have even looked back at some of the pictures in great surprise, having not been aware of you taking them at the time! The photos themselves are wonderful & will bring us a lot of happiness over the years. If you would ever like us to speak to potential customers, don't hesitate to ask - we have nothing but positive comments! Thank you once again'.  Sam & Ollie

'We have received our disc!! I will write to thank you properly when I have a little longer but just a few quick lines to say a huge thank you! You were brilliant on the day and we are really pleased with the results. You have managed to capture the relaxed and fun atmosphere of our wedding perfectly and also the more tender moments too. You were certainly the right 'bloke' for the job and we will treasure your work, and of course recommend you, forever more. We would love to take you up on your offer of a meeting to discuss black and white and spot colour options so please let us know when you are available. Hope to see you soon.' Hannah x

'Thank you very much for making our wedding day what it was. The day went by so quickly and it is great to have so many fantastic photos. You delivered exactly what we wanted, it was our special day and I wanted to capture the whole day with plenty of photos. The photos you provided were great and you must have been invisible as many people were unaware you had taken a photo of them! The shots you took are clear, sharp, and some images are very clever. You were a professional from start to finish and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again for all your hard work, it was very much appreciated and you did a fantastic job.'   Julie & Marco

'Just a quick note to let you know we have received the photos on DVD. They look fabulous. Thanks for all the work you put in on the 13th. While I am sure there have been harder days, I am equally sure there have been easier! We both appreciate the the way you fitted in with our day, and the great shots you got'.  Nic

'Professional, courteous & great value! We can only concur with the comments already posted about John. He made us feel at ease from the beginning, was fun to work with, but always professional. If you want relaxed, unobtrusive and natural but stunning photographs then look no further than John. We can't recommend him highly enough.'  Maddie & Ed

'I got in touch with John whilst we were planning our wedding day and he helped out with various ideas, even coming up with suggestions for other parts of the day which were very helpful. He came and met us and thoroughly planned out the shoot beforehand, which was really helpful as the day itself was rainy and wet throughout. During the day, John got some fantastic photos that really captured the personalities of the guests, he was friendly and approachable by all, blending into the background and we forgot he was there for most of the day. I'd highly recommend John's services.'   Steven & Jess

'Wowie! That is very impressive! The photos are fantastic. Everything I hoped they would be. Bloke did some fantastic photos of my duo - which can be seen on our web site. He has fantastic camera equipment and facilities for portrait photography and came up with a fantastic selection of prints for us. Very very pleased. Highly recommended'. Stuart'

'Just to say DVD arrived safely. We love the photos - and from the bride, who rarely sees a photo of herself that she likes, a special thank you! They capture each part of the day and all the joy, looking at them brings back such happy memories as well as allowing us to see some of the stuff guests got up to that we missed! Thanks again.'   Mr and Mrs Knott

'Having been involved in wedding arrangements many times before, I was always frustrated with the traditional wedding photographer's business model. If you're not familiar with it, most photographers charge a fee for taking pictures on the wedding day and then try to sell you as much printed material as possible, but they won't let you near the source files. So it was refreshing to find a photographer who just charges a fee for taking the pictures and gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with the high quality image files. John is organised, courteous, diligent and a thoroughly pleasant chap who will blend into your family occasion nicely and find just the right shots that capture the spirit of the day'   Dylan G

'Thank you so much for the fantastic photographs. We are absolutely thrilled with them and have really enjoyed showing our families the DVD. Thank you for making our wedding day so special. You have been so professional, kind and friendly throughout all the preparations. Many of our guests have commented how super you were on the day - you were the tops! We have very happy memories of our wedding day and we were so pleased that you were our photographer. You were so pleasant and fitted in so well, it was just like having a really good friend doing the photos.'   Ian & Louise

'Just a little note to say a big thank-you for being our wedding photographer! We received your photos safely + they are beautiful, we're so pleased. Thanks also for being so laid back, yet helpful on the day, it really made everyone relax + ensured lots of smiley pictures!'.  Alexa & Paul

'We found John's website after a long trawl through the internet and his photographs immediately struck a chord - the characters of his subjects shine through his pictures. Whilst being completely unobtrusive on the day, John has an instinct for knowing when a great photo is coming up and is ready and waiting. John's flair for capturing natural images of the day has provided us with some timeless memories of our family and friends. Having all of the images on disk has enabled us to choose exactly what we want. We bought extra disks for our nearest and dearest, which has provided hours of fun for our parents, who have been busy compiling their own photograph albums! Thank you John for a friendly and professional service - for entertaining the small bridesmaids and for the cracking photographs!'  Emma & Iain

'We received our photos today - what a turnaround! They are stunning, of course; so full of life. We really feel so lucky to have booked you because not only did our guests rave about your general delightfulness (steady on! - Ed) we also now have photos that are unique and very meaningful. It goes without saying that you were very popular with my family, and you bet that we'll sing your praises every chance we get!   Rob & Aleshia, Michigan, USA

'We contacted Bloke with a Camera after reading reviews on Hitched and looking through the photos on his website. Neither of us are very comfortable being photographed and are not fans of 'staged' photographs, we also did not want to be forced into cliched poses on our big day, but wanted it captured as it was. John did not disappoint, our photos were waiting for us on the mat on our return from honeymoon as promised, and they are fabulous. The day was such a whirlwind it was lovely to actually see the photos of our guests and families enjoying the day as much as we did, John managed to capture this perfectly, and somehow managed to do it inconspicuously, there are even photos of us that we weren't aware he was taking. If you want someone who will blend into your wedding with ease, and is able to capture all the action of the day perfectly, then we highly recommend Bloke with a Camera.'  Mark & Sara 

'Many thanks for the photos, they were waiting on the mat for us when we returned last night as promised. We've had a look at them today after resisting the urge last night! They are fabulous and exactly what we had hoped they would be. It was so nice to see all the little things we didn't get to see on the day, I especially love the one of Ben our pageboy shushing my Dad during his speech! We will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends that decide to take the plunge. Many thanks once again.'  Sara & Barry

'Strong recommendation - John was a delight to chat with ahead of the day, accommodating to our wants and needs, did a great job on the day and ultimately gave us exactly what we wanted - great shots and the digital images for us to muck about with however we fancied. Quick turnaround too... I'd hire him again without reservation.'  Matt & Tracey-Ann

'We were delighted both in the end result, and also the way you worked on the day. I was so impressed that you really listened to what Charles and I wanted and then carried this out. There were no cringeworthy moments and no soft focus photos of my shoes, but perhaps most importantly the taking of the photos did not dominate the day, but rather reflected the day. We now have a wonderful account of the wedding, recording not just who was there but also capturing the spirit and fun of the day'.  Katy & Charles

'Thanks so much for the DVD, we are so pleased with all the photos and whilst we can't believe you took so many, we are glad you did.  I hope you agree they all look amazing... Everyone commented how lovely you were although you must have blended in well as most people thought we didn't have an official photographer'  Richard & Natalie

'We found "Bloke with a Camera" after trawling through websites full of soft focus clichés. His pictures stood out as being more natural. We booked John following conversations by email and phone. John is very easy to deal with and very professional. He visited our venue in advance, offered helpful suggestions and checked our requirements for group photos etc. On the day, John worked in an unobtrusive way and was brilliant with our guests, from whom we received several positive comments. His pictures are excellent and they really capture feel of the day. Based on our experience, we'd unhesitatingly recommend "Bloke with a Camera"'.   Andy & Anne

'Many many thanks for all your hard work and extra minutes for our wedding... We have received your CD with great thanks and big smiles. Brilliant - except my pesky hair and a large comb over look alike on the quay! There are some fab images and lovely moments from guests and little ones, you certainly seemed to have captured the essence of what it was about. I appreciate it was a little hectic but I think we have caught all we could given the time. Would have been lovely to have you all day. And even Oscar gave you a great smile'.  Susie & Dan

(Bloke adds: 'Oscar was the biggest, softest, fluffiest golden retriever I've ever seen!')

'Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that our photographs were waiting on the doormat when we got home last night :-)  We are both really pleased with the final cut and I am super impressed that you were able to cover so much ground and produced a diverse range of shots, so thank you for that. We will be in touch soon to arrange the follow up editing session... thanks again for the way you managed us on the day and the final pics'  Clare

'Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures you took of our wedding day - they really capture the spirit of the day, with lots of smiles, tears and laughter. We couldn't have found a better photographer to help capture our special day, and will treasure these photos for many, many years to come. If it's OK we'll let you know the reference numbers of a couple of pictures we'd love to see in black and white. Many thanks again for everything you did on the day - having the CD waiting for us upon our return from honeymoon was a real treat!' Laura & Ross

'Thank you so much for all your work at our wedding!
It was great to receive all our photos only a week after our big day. We sat with a nice glass or 2 and watched them all on a slideshow, laughing and giggling at what are fantastic photos that captured our day perfectly. Everyone commented on how great you were and the fact that you were friendly, approachable and in no way in anyone's face!!
I'll be happily making our guests CDs and prints over the next few weeks to go out with their thank you cards. Thank you again and do let me know if I can review your work on any particular web site, as I'd be very happy to.'
  Jeanette and Pete x

'We chose Bloke as our wedding photographer after surfing the net and finding his website which stood out as simple, elegant and sophisticated amongst a sea of soft-focus, entwined hearts and very cheesy ones. Bloke lived up to expectations as a relaxed and friendly photographer who mingled with the guests and got some fabulous relaxed and informal shots of our special day. The photographs show just what a perfect and happy day it was – just what we wanted.'  Samantha & John-Mark

'We wanted to say a proper thank you to you for all your efforts on our wedding day, and of course for the wonderful photos that you’ve produced. The DVD was waiting for us when we returned from honeymoon and we’re delighted. Not only is there a large selection of photos, capturing every aspect of the day, but we haven’t had to wait ages for them as we’ve know many friends to do. We really appreciated meeting you at Pembroke Lodge in advance, finding your thoughts and opinions very helpful. On the day you were friendly and discreet putting us at ease and allowing us to enjoy the day. An extra thank you should go to you for adjusting the height of the video camera that was set to record the ceremony. If you hadn’t of thought to do this, which was not part of your role, then we’d have had a very different, very unfortunate, video of us getting married headless! We’re looking forward to sharing the photos with all our family and friends and reliving our wonderful day. We would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples in the future. With best wishes and many thanks'  Amy & Tim

'Just wanted to let you know we received the photos and are utterly delighted with them - thank you for the wonderful photographs. It was such a delight to receive them so quickly and you really did a great job of documenting the day, with friendliness and professionalism. All the very best'  Lisa & Scott

'...we've spent ages going through the 500+ photos, made a photo book and an album of lovely large prints and feel like I know every photo in great detail. We've had fantastic comments from all of our guests who have also enjoyed looking at the highlights. I thought I'd also let you know that your photos are currently being shared with my school's partner school in Buhumba, Uganda! We have a joint shared theme of celebration and they were desperate to see my wedding photos. I sent 20 laminated A4 photos off on Friday with our deputy head. Thanks once again, you were everything we wanted in a photographer.'  Sarah & Gideon X

'...we received the pictures and they are lovely. Everyone is so impressed. (Except my mother, because she hasn't seen them yet - she is going mad! lol.) We are so happy and can't thank you enough. You have done a great job, and not to mention, you were so friendly and accommodating on the day - we are certain that you were the best choice. Thank you again for having given us such a wonderful gift - our most treasured memories preserved so beautifully! :) Warm regards'  Sonja and Dragos, Canada

'We received the pictures and they really are wonderful, some lovely moments, some that Greg and I didn't even see at the time and we were so impressed that you had managed to get all of our guests in a picture somewhere, all such great memories. Thanks so much for all that you did for us, I'm not going to "gush" too much right now, a 'proper' thank you should arrive with you this week.'   Sarah & Greg

'Thanks again for all your hard work, it was very much appreciated and you did a fantastic job.'   Craig & Sue

'We have at long last got to see your photos from Sam and Ollie's wedding - as you know they didn't get back from Borneo until early November. Still, they are definitely worth the wait - you really did a wonderful job, without us being really aware of what was going on half the time... This is really a big thank you for doing such a wonderful job for us, both before the wedding and on the day itself.  If any of your future potential clients want to talk to a very satisfied customer please do not hesitate to put them in touch with us.'  Toni

'The best bit about coming home from honeymoon was finding the envelope from you on the mat! We are so thrilled with our wedding photographs, they made us laugh and cry and remember all the wonderful emotions of our day! We appreciate the fact that you were prepared to travel so far to our wedding and also that you made no efforts to rush off early despite your long journey home afterwards. I particularly remember that you made the effort to come and find myself and David at 9pm before you left and that you took the time to chat about the day and suggested taking some final pictures of the two of us - and also that unbeknown to us you took that final picture of the hall as you left, with the lights glowing out of the windows - it makes a lovely final shot for our album. Our friends and family commented on how warm and friendly you were, how well you blended in throughout the wedding and how easily you fitted in with all our guests. I have heard stories from friends about photographers who spend the day instructing family and guests to pose and working through a list of pre-decided pictures. I recommend you to anyone requiring a 'real' photographer, who listens and really makes the effort to capture the spirit of the day. Your wonderful informal photographs reflect the fact that you quickly became one of our guests. It was the presence of all our friends and family that made our day so special and that includes you! Many thanks for all your hard work and we really hope you enjoyed the day! Our very best wishes and thanks.'  Helen & David

'We found the whole process of working with you very smooth and stress free. We felt your style of photography, focussing on capturing the essence of the event through the people attending it and unique little details suited what we wanted to remember our wedding day by. To see such a full set of shots from entire weddings at our first meeting was not only useful to ensure that we could make an informed decision but also enabled us to begin to make choices about our own wedding. The visit to the venue together was useful to map out the timetable for the day, meant that we were all comfortable with each other and there were not too many surprises. Many people at the wedding commented on how friendly and approachable you were, but also how unobtrusive. We were really glad we decided to get our own shots done away from from the humdrum of the drinks reception. Many of them are so lovely and natural and capture the first few moments of our marriage perfectly. Finally the prompt and clear service you offer was excellent for us. We arrived home from honeymoon a week after our wedding and our photos were waiting for us. It made such a difference to be able to look at them immediately, send the best ones out and upload them. We would recommend you to anyone wanting the same reliable, friendly and quality service.'  Louisa & Rick



'Just a quick one to say... pictures arrived this morning... love, love them!! We are so so pleased with our wedding photos. John was very lovely on the day and very patient with us! We would highly recommend the service which he provides, a stress free and very professional approach. Thank you x'  Roxane & Michael

'I've been to so many weddings where the photographer just seems to wind everyone up, bossing people around, taking over and getting in everyone's way, but John (aka the bloke with the camera) was NOTHING like that!! It may sound strange but he just seemed to blend in with the rest of our family! He was a real joy to have around the house in the morning and offered me a lot of great advice so my wedding day went perfectly! At the church his brilliant nature followed... all of our guests commented on how lovely he was and a lot of people thought he was a family friend as he was so friendly to everyone and we were so relaxed around him! He is one of the nicest people you will ever come across and I'd truly advise anyone to have him for their special day!'  Michaela x

(Bloke says: 'Crikey!')

'I've been all caught up in the house move and getting set for our travels! We got the photos, they are really lovely, thank you! I'm in the process of putting together a photo album at the moment...it's pretty tricky picking which ones to use with so many great ones to choose from! Thank you for doing such a great job on the day!'  Jacqui and John

'I've spoken to many of our guests and they all concur that you always seemed to be snapping but never in the way - thank you SO much. I particularly love the pictures of the Transylvania contingent - I didn't know they would all be in black - they looked fab! Your photos are being mailed to Romania and will also be seen in New Zealand and Hawaii!! We're already talking about wanting some of our photos in the black and white and spot colour m'larky - so you haven't seen the end of us. I barely saw you on the day yet you are the one who will keep our memories fresh - a rare talent!'  Marian & Vin

'Bloke provided us with a set of pictures that will bring back fabulous memories for ever. He was professional & unobtrusive when required enabling him to capture the essence of the day with a magical mix of formal and informal snaps. Great value for money with the ability to provide extra disks for special members of the wedding party if required. His planning and attention to detail pre, during and post the event was excellent and reassured us of his commitment to us all along the way. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone for their big day. Thank you.'   John & Jane

'Much appreciated the effort you put in on the day, everyone said how professional you were and that you always managed to be in the right
place at the right time apparently!!!  Very nice meeting and working with you, would recommend you to anyone in need of a photographer without hesitation.  Kindest Regards, Steve & Michiko, Japan

'We're back from our honeymoon and have received the photos of our wedding. Thank you. We are very very pleased with them and have had a few laughs (and tears) going through them all. Thanks and best regards.'  Wendy & Gavin

'Just a quick note to say we received the wedding disc.... and ... WOW! Fantastic pictures!! Really, really pleased with what you have done. You've really captured the day beautifully! We certainly made the right choice picking you to be our photographer and will be recommending you to everyone we can!! I have attached a little picture of my own - I guess it's not very often the photographer gets snapped but here you are talking photography by the looks of things!! (Captured by our eldest boy Lewis - I think he has potential!) Many thanks again. It was a real pleasure to work with you!'  Jo and Dave

'Thank you very much for taking such beautiful pictures of our wedding day. They're perfect and a true resemblance to the day! We had a lovely time and are still recovering! Canada was a lovely country with lots of good photo opportunities! Thank you again for the lovely photos you took.  Love from Jenny & Phil x

'Just also wanted to say that the photo's are fab thank you. I hate having my picture taken at the best of times, but you've managed to get some great shots & have captured exactly how we felt on the day - HAPPY! :) I have to admit that I've sat and looked through them every evening since the disk arrived and it is so nice to have them all & see the day as it happened. Thanks once again from all of us.'  Nikki & Adam

'I was lucky enough to find John, aka "Bloke with a Camera", whilst searching for a Wedding Photographer online. Not only were my husband and I delighted with the end results, we found John to be punctual, friendly and generally lovely! He has a great ability to put people at ease, and blend into the background as required to get natural shots. I would recommend John to anyone searching for an outstanding photographer.'  Laura Welham-Halstead

'Just to let you know that we finally managed to find time to look at our photos! We think they are absolutely amazing and capture the whole day perfectly, thank you very much. Once we've decided how we want to present them we'll let you know if there are any we'd like as black and white photos. Thanks for doing such a fantastic job!'  Hayley B

'We had a great wedding day and honeymoon and just wanted to say thanks for taking such great pictures. There are some really beautiful ones in there and we're having great fun printing them off and framing some for ourselves and family and friends as keepsakes of the day... Thanks for the day again and super work. We're glad we chose you and the results show why. Joe & Anita

'The DVD arrived safely and the pictures are great. Thanks again for a job well done. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Best wishes, Jeff Hayes, Missouri, USA

'We had decided to ask my brother to do our wedding photographs as spending a couple of thousand pounds on photographs seemed crazy. However, in my (late) search for hair and makeup, I have just come across your site and been so impressed and touched by your pictures I just have to ask if you are available... If you aren't, at least this is a bit of good feedback!' Helen D.  (Luckily I was, and it cost a lot less than £2,000!)

'Thank you so much for altering the photos so quickly. We are really pleased with the finished results. Can't wait to get them sorted into an album... thanks once again - we are really happy.'  Jenny & Tim, New Zealand

'Lee and I are delighted with the photos and would definitely recommend you to any friends tying the knot. It was an added bonus on the day having someone experienced at how the mechanics of weddings work! I really appreciated having all the RAW files and being able to play about with them and work with them - I'm planning on making a nice photo book. Thank you again for being the calm and professional part of mine and Lee's big day and for the lovely memories you captured.'  Rachel

(Bloke adds: 'RAW files aren't usually supplied but can be included by special request')

'Just wanted to send you a little note to say thank you for all your help on the day & the lovely pictures! Thought you did a wonderful job & the style of your photography definitely contributed to the ambience of the day! James & Susan

'Thank you so much for coming out (on your birthday too!) for our special day. Also thank you for the speediness of the disk sending!  Pete & Donna

'We are absolutely thrilled at the photographs, they have come out so well, and you have caught some brilliant moments. We especially love the SFX pictures - in particular the shot in the registry office where myself, Dave and the bouquet are in colour with the background B&W - and the shot of our nephew hanging off the chair in B&W - fabulous! Once again, thanks for everything, and for capturing the relaxed spirit of the day!'   Carole & David

'We both had a fantastic day and love the photos, you have worked wonders with the photos in the church - I didn't realise it could look so light!' Caroline & Mat x

From Leek Photographic Club: 'Thanks John for your advice. I am blown away and encouraged by the fact that you are only really using the SB800 , it just shows that it is just down to experience and been able to actually ‘read’ a lighting situation – given another few years I hope that I can achieve such results... I am so impressed at how you manage to capture such natural images – the testimonials are a credit to you , it is nice to see such a professional not taking advantage of people'. Chris Johnson

'We have just received our photos and they are excellent. Bloke was very professional with the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. It is so nice to get every single photo that he has taken and we can print off as many as we want for normal prices not the inflated prices that photographers usually charge. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer. His prices are very competitive and cannot be beaten and the photos he took came out so well.'   Rick & Zahra

'Many thanks for truly and beautifully capturing our wedding; such a true reflection of happiness and sincerity on the day' Hilary & Robert

'Thank you for the fabulous job you did. We are recommending you to everyone who is getting married!'  Phillip & Ellie

'I think it is actually enjoying the experience as well and everyone cannot believe how nice they turned out and wow!! Like I said, would be using you a lot and promoting you to others which I am already doing. I am now trying to think of how I can arrange these sessions, Sylvia can't wait after seeing mine - Well done!!!'  Ali

'We received the photos safely and promptly and are very happy with them, thank you! We have backed up our photos already... Thank you for a great job with our wedding pictures. Best wishes, Mary & Bez

'Just back from honeymoon and wanted to drop you a note to say that the photo disk has arrived safely. Thank you very much for all your hard work on the day – the photos are lovely and we really appreciated how you were so relaxed and happy to “work away in the background”, rather than herding people around like sheep! I’m sure we will be in touch soon to think about some options for special effects. In the meantime, if there are any websites, forums, etc. that you advertise on that we can post testimonials on, then we are very happy to do that! Let me know if we can help'. James & Susan

'Thank you so much for the photos. They are fantastic :O) ... We arrived home from our honeymoon at 2 am. We couldn't wait till the morning to see them so we made a cup of tea and looked through them all. It was a perfect end to a perfect wedding day and honeymoon. Also so many people commented on how good you were and how you just mingled. Nobody felt conscious of you being there, snapping away, which is really nice to hear... Thank you so much for all your hard work.  Amy x

'Just got back... to find a lovely present awaiting my arrival. The pictures are fantastic... you are a star'. Devika & friends

'We have received our disc!! I will write to thank you properly when I have a little longer but just a few quick lines to say a huge thank you! You were brilliant on the day and we are really pleased with the results. You have managed to capture the relaxed and fun atmosphere of our wedding perfectly and also the more tender moments too. You were certainly the right 'bloke' for the job and we will treasure your work, and of course recommend you, forever more. We would love to take you up on your offer of a meeting to discuss black and white and spot colour options so please let us know when you are available. Hope to see you soon.' Hannah x

'John more than lived up to our expectations as he was always calm and friendly and this meant the guests where happy and relaxed. He mingled with the guests and got some fabulous informal shots of our special day along with the traditional ones. The photographs showed people having fun and that is what everybody has commented on. Great high resolution pictures (over 500). Our memorable day was in very safe hands. Thanx John - you were brilliant.'  Peter and Kathy

'First and Foremost THANK YOU! The CDs have arrived safely and I'm busy having my first look at them... First thoughts are that you have some real corkers there and we're going to have fun settling on a selection we like best!'  Ron & Heidi

'We found Bloke with a camera on Hitched and booked him almost immediately after we got engaged. He was everything we wanted in a photographer for our wedding. He's extremely friendly and laid back which suited us and this is shown in the photographs of the day. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bloke to anyone else for their day. Thank you!'  Louise & Robin

'We love the pictures! There are so many - the day has been captured fantastically. And it was a lovely surprise to see all the photos you took before we all descended on Priory Hall - you must have got there quite early! The tables - we just hadn't thought to get photos of them and we are so glad you did. As you can imagine we have been very busy since we got back from Honeymoon, but will be spending this weekend looking at the photos thoroughly to decide whether there are any we would like modifying. I will let you know. Thanks again!  Helen and Neil

'We are really pleased with the images and have been showing them to all and sundry (I even have a copy in my bag)... I'm not sure how we're going to get them down to a suitable number for the album we have had made - we want to include so many. I have enjoyed spending many an hour creating various folders on the computer 'for the album', 'for framing', etc. Thanks for doing such a good job. We're very happy with our pictures and hope you also enjoyed being involved in our big day.'  Alison & Simon

'I should have written to you ages go to thank you for the AMAZING photos! The DVD was here when we got back from honeymoon and they really are excellent. Some of my favourites are in the church and during the speeches. I love how you captured some of the guests reactions to the speeches - Andy was very pleased to see a few of them laughing at his! I uploaded them to Snapfish quite easily, and have just started putting an album together on BOB books! Thank you SOOO much for the photos. You were brilliant on the day and we couldn't ask for a better way to preserve our memories!'  Emma

'We returned from honeymoon on Saturday and have just started to recover from the jet lag... We viewed the pics yesterday and they are stunning - the ones on the beach are beautiful! We are going to look through them properly over the weekend so may call upon your modification expertise - in the meantime I just wanted to personally say thank you, you were great on the day (even putting up with the stressing last few minutes before I arrived twenty minutes late!!). We really are so pleased with them and have enjoyed showing them to parents, who are used to the 'traditional' wedding photography approach but have been blown away with your pictures!!'  Jessica & John

'The photos area really fantastic, and a complete pleasure to look through. You've really managed to capture the whole day. And especially the reception photos, you managed to capture everything so well in such low light. My mum called me up today to tell me how much she loved them! It was a real pleasure working with you, and lots of our friends have said they enjoyed chatting to you. We will absolutely recommend you to our friends and family in future. I hope you enjoyed the day too, and it is not your last Indian wedding! Thanks again, I hope you have a successful summer.'  Shilpa & Duncan

'I received the photos yesterday. First day back in the office so perfect timing. They are great - thank you. Actually better than I expected for some reason - nothing to do with expectations of your skills but rather my experience of event photography! There are some really fabulous photos there which will be a treasure to have as memories of the day fade.'  Alex

'Lovely natural photos of excellent quality - we found John to be very relaxed and unobtrusive. He came an hour before the ceremony and stayed into the evening do. The photos are lovely and he caught all of our guests at some point in the day with no posing and annoying rounding up of groups; it all happened very naturally.'  Georgina & Mark

'I wanted to write and say a huge thank you for your great work photographing our wedding. The photos were waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon and helped us pass a fantastic afternoon reminiscing! Thanks for the last minute photos of the shaggy cows on your way out too* - they were a great surprise at the end of it! Alex and I would very much like to take you up on your offer of coming to see you to play with effects'. Luisa

(*I should explain that Luisa is an ardent fan of shaggy cows!)

'Bloke added so much to our day with his calm persona, gentle guidance, tireless energy and professionalism. It was a real pleasure seeing the expert results he produced, which we feel captured the very essence and spirit of the day and all our wonderful guests. Hiring him was definitely one of our golden decisions for our wedding, and I urge anybody looking for a talented photographer, at an excellent price, to read the interview on his website and hire this man, he does exactly what he says on the tin, and so much more!'  Carrie & Phill

'From start to finish John took amazing photos to record our day. His laid back and completely unobtrusive style was exactly what we wanted and could not have found a better photographer. He blended in with our guests and took some lovely relaxed shots of them all, throughout the day and evening. Knowing the disc would be on the doormat after the honeymoon made coming home a little bit easier. Beautiful photos taken by a great bloke. Would not hesitate to recommend Bloke!'  Susan P  

'Thank you so much for being very prompt at the sending out the photo DVD, it was great to be able to show family the pictures so quickly. We are really pleased with the photos they are a good reflection of your ability to work in a less than favourable conditions of a dark and small venue. The photos really capture the spirit of the evening; they feel friendly, cosy, relaxed and not at all pretentious.'  Anita & James

'They are absolutely fantastic. I couldn't fault one! You are truly gifted! Thank you so much for giving us those memories. They are the icing on the cake, as it were :-) Take care and wishing you all the very best!'  Neil & Teri xxx

'Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for our wedding photos. It has been manic since we got back. We absolutely love the photos and I know Jen is planning to get in touch with you again to see how a few can be played around with to add to the photo book we are putting together'. Jenny & Ben
