It’s so important for me to make sure that I provide all my couples with photographs that they can love and treasure forever.
I also take great pride in giving an amazing experience throughout the whole process and providing a service that is above and beyond anticipated.
I’m really so grateful to have a job that I love and to receive such thanks and praise for doing this. Here follow some kind words from couples over the last few years.
TRUST IN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
“Wow, what can we say Will other than the biggest thank you for the most beautiful photographs. We had our first viewing late last night when Andrew was home and no doubt we’ll be looking at them all weekend! We absolutely love them and can’t thank you enough.
We are watching them again tonight with my Mum, Dad and Sister, everyone is amazed by them. I just wanted to thank you again for capturing our day so beautifully and for our exciting blog. We will treasure these memories for many years to come. How lucky we were to find you!
Thank you so much, Hannah & Andrew xxxx”
Hannah and Andrew, Britannia Royal Navy College, Dartmouth.
“Will, thank you so much for being the best photographer ever! We absolutely LOVE our wedding day pictures. You have captured our special day so perfectly. Your photos tell the story of our day so brilliantly, catching those nervous glances and eye catching moments between Nick and I. You made us feel so relaxed throughout the whole process and especially on the big day. We can’t stop looking through our photos, they are the perfect reminder of our special day. Love S&N xxx.”
Sarah and Nick, Deer Park Wedding
“Wow Will, we’ve just finished watching the slideshow for the second time and we’re just blown away with how fab our photos are! They just captured the two days perfectly and bring back so many wonderful memories.
We love you Will. The album is absolutely perfect.
Thank you for everything, we will treasure our photographs forever. xx”

“We could not be happier with our photographs. We have been sobbing and howling with laughter! We just keep looking at them over and over! We are both so thrilled. You really made us feel so relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our adventures to different locations with you. You went above and beyond and we will certainly be recommending you with the highest praise. Recommendations for your work cannot come highly enough. A million times… Thank you so so much xx”
Steff & Aidan, Britannia Royal Navy College, Dartmouth and Best Western The Dartmouth Hotel.
I just wanted to express our sincerest thanks to you. We have been blown away by our wedding pictures, every time we look at them we spot something new. Such beautiful memories to treasure for a lifetime. You are a true artist, beyond brilliant and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing such special moments. Thanks again.
With very best wishes, Lucy, Levi and Noah.”
Lucy and Levi, Bovey Castle.
“Pete and I both agree that the best decision we made while doing all the wedding planning was getting Will to photograph the day. He produced absolutely incredible photos that perfectly captured the joy and emotion of the day. We can’t recommend him highly enough!
Will, we know organising a wedding with the bride and groom in the US was not easy and we are so grateful for all of your help. Thank you for being so easy-going, for capturing the essence of the day with photos filled with happiness and love. We love looking back on all the laughter and smiles on our, and our guests, faces.
Lots of love, Abi and Pete xx”
Abigail and Peter, Rockbeare Manor.
“Hi Will, firstly a massive thank you for our wedding photographs, we are so in love with the pictures, I think I’ve looked at all 640 images about 10 times already today! What an amazing job you have done, we can’t wait to show everyone.
Thank you so much.
Jess & Dan xx”
Jess and Dan, Upton Barn, Devon.
“Well WHAT A SHOW!!!
We received the pics today as scheduled and took your advice…..music…..wine…..lights down low……wine……and a little more wine ….
We are dumbstruck….the pics are AMAZING.
We have just relived our entire wedding day and loved every single pic. You’ve captured every moment and overwhelmingly there’s a genuine smile in every shot!!!
We’ve had tears and laughter watching tonight’s slide show it’s been great.
On behalf of Mina and I we are chuffed to bits and very grateful to you for capturing the memories of a great day.
You’re a true pro…..
Nothing more to be said other than….
Mina & Mark, Bovey Castle (Managing Director of Eden Hotels)
“We have just seen the photos. Wow, they are amazing. Thank you so much, you have captured the day so beautifully. We are so happy with them all. You have done an amazing job.
Thanks so much again. Vicky & Jacek.”
Victoria and Jacek, Aldwick Estate Vineyard, Bristol.
“Thanks Will! We are so pleased you were able to photograph our wedding. We both love the image you have previewed and Sarah had tears in her eyes when she saw it…
We love it. This is why we value your photography style so much – you can’t ‘create’ a moment like that. Beautiful photograph – thank you!…
Will, all we can say is perfect! We’re both delighted with them. There are so many wonderful photos that capture an incredible moment. Perhaps my favourite is the one with our daughter Esme playing in Sarah’s veil, completely unaware that you are taking photos of her…
Thanks again, Alex and Sarah.”
Sarah and Alex, The Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel.
“Sorry to leave you in suspense….. the pictures are AMAZING!!!
You really captured all the emotions of the day and we couldn’t be happier with them, they are so lovely. We can’t wait to share them with all the family.
Soooo happy that we chose you as our photographer, we are really so so pleased .
Thank you so much again.”
Annelise and Gareth, Rockbeare Manor.
“I had seen Will’s work as he was the photographer for two of my friends weddings and did not hesitate to contact him and ask if he was free for my wedding date. He is an absolutely lovely guy and researched our venue in detail and style of wedding ( An Anglo-Persian wedding) .We had a pre wedding meet up to go through things. On the day he was calm, professional and so likeable for all and felt like one of our guests. He gave us wonderful photos capturing the moment and the Persian ceremony so beautifully and I am so proud and pleased with the result which he obtained in an unobtrusive manner. Everything about his approach was with great care, dedication and love and with a beautiful smile and charm. I think he is a gem and picking the right photographer is so important for a wedding; we were so so right to go with Will. It was also magical that our two close friends had also had him as their photographer and they could meet up so many years later. Will- we cant thank you enough !”
Sheida and David, Gosfield Hall Wedding
Just watched the slideshow and whoa, absolutely amazing!! We are so so happy, thank you so much.
Thank you so much for everything Will, we can’t stop looking at the photographs. You were fantastic and everyone commented on how great you were xx”
Jess and Joe, Brittania Royal Navy College and Buckland Tout-Saints
“I’m in tears (happy ones)! I love the photo you just sent. Can’t wait to see the rest…
First of all a big thank you! I was going to write, “you know how to make a girl very happy” but think that sounds a bit rude!!!
We are delighted with the photos and it really brought the day back to life again. It was truly a very special day and I live the day all over again when I look at our photos, plus I get to look at all the things I missed!
Once again your work has moved me to tears and also made me laugh out loud. I am so glad that we chose you to capture our special day.
Many thanks and warmest wishes, Alison and Ashley (and Sunny)”
Alison and Ashley, Bovey Castle.

Vanessa and Seth, Horn of Plenty Wedding
“Thank You. We haven’t seen the photos yet….this thank you is for you and your whole approach and character during our entire wedding day; from the moment you arrived with myself and the bridesmaids to what I imagine you’ve captured of our ‘first dance’, you were fantastic on every level!
You were extremely calm and reassuring which kept us that way; you were great fun whilst remaining very focused (!); you were very unobtrusive yet always there to I’m sure, capture the right shots. You truly felt like one of our friends and guest at our wedding – nothing we would have wanted you change at all.
We had numerous complimentary comments about your personality and approach from our guests, which again added to the wonderful memories of our special day.
Thank you so much Will.
Will – everyone loved you! So happy we chose you to be our photographer! We are delighted with the photos, they’re beautiful. Judith & Simon xxxxx”

“We are completely and utterly delighted with everything. It is amazing to sit down and relive our wedding- so much we had missed and you get a completely different perspective. We still can’t get over how blue everything looks, we were so incredibly lucky that day.
We did as we were told and watched the slideshow first with a wine or two, a bit like the lady driving that boat! That was fun, and thank goodness we had you with us- not many would have gone along with that! We were so lucky to have you helping out and if you need any recommendations or anything, just say the word. Thank you so much.”
Libby and Toby, Gurrow Point Wedding, Dittisham
“Yey! Bloodie brilliant Will, thank you so much for capturing the smiles and happiness going on at our wedding.
We are amazed and impressed, seriously. The ability for one man to be seemingly everywhere is incredible and its a real reliving of all the little moments between the big ones.
We’ll take a while to ooh and ahh some more and then have a think about things to do with them.
But thanks – excellent happy stuff. x”
Beth and Marcus, Dartington Hall Wedding

Thank you so much for our absolutely stunning photographs. We are blown away by how beautifully you captured the day.
You were really easy to work with and lots of guests commented on your open and easy personality on the day.
Love, Sarah and Chris x”
Sarah and Chris, Salcombe Harbour Hotel.
“Will was absolutely fantastic as our wedding photographer. He met us before the big day to discuss everything we wanted. Our wedding didnt follow the standard format and he was brilliant at remembering all the details. On the day Will was super friendly and made all the guests feel relaxed while he was taking photos. He managed to capture some really intimate shots of the ceremony without anyone being aware of his presence. He was also fantastic at checking the weather forecast and keeping an eye on the sky so that he could plan our outside shots for the brightest spell of the afternoon. We are completely thrilled with the photos Will took of our wedding and would recommend him to everyone”
Verity & Chris, Bovey Castle Wedding
“Oh my goodness, the photos are amazing, we absolutely love them. You really captured everything and I love how everyone is laughing in all the pictures, it really shows what an amazing fun day we had.
Thanks Will for being such a brilliant photographer, you made us feel at ease, and didn’t even notice you taking the photos, you were so discreet.
Thanks again for all your hard work, you have done an outstanding job, thank you so much x
Debbie & Steve, St Petrox Church and The Dartmouth Hotel, Golf and Spa.
“From the moment we met Will we knew he would document our special day in an informal way that Would tell the story and we weren’t disappointed ! The USB arrived in a little corked bottle inside a miniature wooden crate which set the scene for our viewing but it was so much more than a message in a bottle it was our story ….he’d captured the emotions frame by frame ; excitement , tears of joy & boundless laughter in a slide show that helps us relive that wonderful day. A unique photographic delight ! Thank you.”
Lorraine and Alan, Deer Park Wedding
“Will was absolutely fantastic not only on the day but also before and after the wedding in making sure everything was perfect. The photos he took were absolutely fantastic and captured the day beautifully. He was really fun to be around, putting us at ease and also making the guests laugh too. We would highly recommend Will to anyone looking for a wedding photographer with no hesitations!”
Hannah and Ben, St Matthew’s Church and Marquee, Exeter

Love it – I haven’t viewed the images for a couple of days and seeing the slideshow was like reliving the happiness and emotion again. Wow, You’re truly half man, half amazing!” x
Zakima and Sam, Cotswold House Hotel and Spa Wedding
“I looked at lots of different photography websites, but thought Will was the friendliest and had the style of photography we were looking for. His style is reportage and very natural, which we loved, and there is not a single photograph from our wedding we don’t love. I would highly recommend him- he is completely chilled out and felt like part of our group of friends on the day. He mixed with everyone, but made sure he was never in the way.”
Emma and Simon, Bingham Wedding, Richmond
“William and I absolutely love the photographs and can’t stop looking through them. We can’t thank you enough for doing such a fantastic job of capturing the essence of what was for us such a special day. We are so happy and it’s been such a pleasure working with you so far. Thank you again for being such an important part of the best day in both our lives so far. x”

Thank again xx”
Hannah and Eliott, Kew Gardens Wedding
“Hope you are having a fantastic summer! We have seen how busy you have been via your facebook page, as always the photos look fantastic.
Your photos from our wedding are amazing, the intimate shots you obtained whilst remaining almost invisible and unobtrusive are wonderful!
“Thank you so much for photographing our wedding so brilliantly. We have received so many compliments on the photos you sent through, particularly the beach shots. We’re so happy that we took the gamble with the weather and it provided an amazing backdrop for our photos.
We will treasure for them years to come, thanks again.”
Laura and Mark, Cliff House and Salcombe Harbour Hotel.
“We saw some of Will’s previous work taken at the Bingham and loved his relaxed and unobtrusive style. We met him over drinks and got along famously.

Thanks again- the photographs are delightful and we are so pleased with them.”
Rachel and Chris, Buckland Tout-Saints.
“Will is exceptional. We couldn’t have asked for more. On the day, we barely noticed him (in a good way). He managed to capture not only the events, but also the flavour and emotion without once seeming obtrusive.
We are so happy with the photos we got back and the extremely high-quality albums. In fact, every member of our families to have seen the albums so far has cried. In a good way! Thank you”
