Kind words – testimonials from clients and wedding professionals



A lovely testimonial from a Compton Acres wedding

It’s always nice to get feedback from not only the couples whose weddings I’ve photographed, but also from other wedding professionals – people whose opinions I value highly. Here are just few ….

Beach Weddings Bournemouth photographer

“Thank you so much Ian of our wonderful pictures, you captured the day perfectly and now we have so many to choose from!! We cannot thank you enough, everything about our day was perfect for us and you kept us calm and organised so that we didn’t have to stress at all. Thank you!” Teoni and Bradly, Andover

“Wow, what to say? Fabulous. Thank you so much, Ian for capturing our special day in such a fabulous way. Your photographs capture the joy and emotion perfectly. You were discrete, with photos taken throughout the ceremony and reception without us really noticing your presence. You were encouraging, prompting small changes in our positioning subtly to help get just the right shots. You were imaginative, with ideas for some super shots which, frankly, could appear on the front of a magazine! We were delighted to have you there, Ian, to share our special day, we are delighted with the end product and would absolutely recommend your services to anyone who is looking. (He’s very friendly too!)” Cath and Nick Wright, Bristol

“Thank you for capturing our day! The photos are perfect, we couldn’t be happier with them. Thank you for sharing our day with us as well, behind and in front of the camera”. Hannah and Gordon, Bournemouth

“An amazing photographer captured our beach wedding perfectly. Thanks so much Ian” Helen and Bradley, Southampton

“Ian was the photographer at our wedding in 2013. From the moment we booked him, we were delighted with his service. He took time to get to know us personally, kept in contact in the lead up to the wedding, took care to ensure he knew exactly what we were after, and put us completely at ease! He arrived early on the day, was so lovely and personal, took all the photographs we wanted and more! He stayed late to capture evening shots for us as well without us even asking him to! The photographs we received were stunning, he captured the day from start to finish, lots of shots we weren’t expecting! We were so so pleased with Ian – I cannot recommend him highly enough! Thank you for putting us all at ease and documenting our special day in such beautiful photographs!” Ruth and Paul, Wales

“We can’t thank you enough for the amazing memories you’ve given us from our perfect day. Our wedding was all we ever dreamed of and you’ve captured every moment. Our photos are exactly as we wanted and we’re so pleased you were a part of our day. Thank you so much.” Lucy and Stu, Bournemouth

“I would consider Ian to be a pure expert in his field and a true pleasure to work with. Ian has a calming influence when you work with him but still has the ability to get the right shots needed. Essential attributes for a wedding or portrait photographer – making the subject feel at ease. Ian offers a high level of service – reliable and punctual and professional throughout and clearly a talented photographer. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian as a photographer” Melanie Kiani, owner of Bellissimo Wedding & Events and Beach Weddings Bournemouth

“Ian – Thank you for all your hard work on our wedding day – the images are fantastic and have really captured the day …. we’re both delighted! We had an amazing day and certainly felt that the 12 months of planning paid off! The honeymoon was brilliant but unfortunately over too quickly! Thank you once again, x” Richard and Louise, Hampshire

“We only looked at the wedding photographs last night – we didn’t get home until late Sunday night and then Warren worked yesterday so I had to find the willpower of a saint to keep from looking at them ALL DAY!! They’re fantastic…you did a brilliant job and we’re so happy with them – you’re a true master of your craft!” Sarah & Warren, New York

“Ian is an amazing wedding photographer and his eye for detail is superb. You just have to look at his portfolio to know that Ian will provide you with stunning wedding photographs to treasure forever. I have also worked with Ian during charity photo shoots where his professionalism really stood out. I can highly recommend ianH photography” Kim Herbing, The Wedding Community
