I’ve been lucky enough to photograph fabulous couples at wonderful venues. Here’s what some have said about me….just click on any of their names and it’ll take you to the blog post for the wedding
“We found Guy through our venue, Gate Street Barn in Surrey and when we first met him on FaceTime, it was like we were old friends. He’s super easy going, has a great sense of humour and we could just tell, he knew what he was doing.
As we went through the schedule for the day in advance, Guy helped us tweak timings for photos after the church ceremony, for example, and estimated how long we’d realistically be taking pictures during our cocktail reception so we could then relay this to our catering team and the staff at Gate Street Barn. He put our minds at ease about the flow of the day and promised to make sure we didn’t take too many awkward family photos.
It’s always a safe choice going with a photographer who is suggested by the venue, but honestly, after what we experienced with Guy, I’d have chosen him even if we had to fly him out from California. 🙂
Thank goodness for Guy, because when we look at photos, we are instantly transported to our wedding day and that’s exactly what we were going for.Â He caught all of the best moments (big and small): from the bride and bridesmaids getting ready and the groom proudly welcoming everyone before the church ceremony, to the flower girls and pageboys stealing the show and our guests’ hilarious reactions when the best manÂ ripped intoÂ the groom – Guy nailed it!
If you’re looking for someone who is excellent company and produces excellent photos, he’s your photographer.”
“It took us around three seconds of looking through his portfolio to decide to book Guy as our wedding photographer. Later, we wondered whether we had been too hasty: what kind of lax bride doesn’t play a little harder to get in vetting the person responsible for recording her big day?
We needn’t have worried. Finding Guy was the single best decision we made for our wedding, and one we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending to anyone planning their own.
Not only did Guy make an awkward, previously unphotogenic bride and groom look like models for a day, he quickly became the wedding guest and friend we didn’t even know we needed. From the moment he turned up (pleasingly early), he was nothing but an asset to our day. Wedding coordinator, fashion consultant, and ice-breaker-in-chief, he taught the bridesmaids how to walk down the aisle, enlightened the groom on where to stand, and exuded the calm, professional air that saw off any pre-ceremony nerves before you could say “tits and teeth”. As the day unfolded he made it look easy, with one eye on capturing guests in action and the other on finding the perfect light for us to sneak off for a precious moment of just-married shots together.
His photographs speak for themselves. We hope this testimony does too.
Guy, we can’t thank you enough for the endless pleasure your pictures will give us. We may have to get divorced so we can do it all over again.”
“I first came across Guy’s work at my friends’ wedding which he shot in Sorrento in 2012. When I saw the photos I immediately fell in love with them and followed every blog Guy posted after that. For me it was the way he could make you feel like you were there and every album told a individual story.
When Richard proposed in 2015 I knew exactly who I wanted to photograph our wedding day. Living in Australia I was worried about how the organisation of the day would work but Guy always kept in touch.
We finally got to meet Guy the week before our wedding day and I have never met someone so relaxed, friendly, like you have known him for years. Immediate connection with both myself and Richard which made our day that bit more special, knowing we had made the right decision.
If we ever get the opportunity again we will have Guy shoot for us. Amazing person, amazing work!”
“We first met Guy when Claire was a bridesmaid at a friends wedding and first of all-what a great bloke! He instantly makes you feel at ease and it feels like you’ve got another friend there a long with you on the day, and a friend is something we would class Guy as now.
He made us feel so special and we had great fun with him on the day sneaking off to have little bits of time for couples photos – so much so we nearly forgot our first dance! The photos themselves are just stunning and we can’t quite believe they are ours.
From the start of our communication with Guy was simple and effortless. Our photos were ready for us when we got back from honeymoon which was a great treat to come back to. We love how beautifully and accurately the images represent the best day of our lives and we could not recommend Guy highly enough. He is genuine, funny and always makes you feel at ease.
Must do pints again soon Guy!!”
“Firstly, finding a photographer can be totally overwhelming! We browsed the internet for hours searching for ‘the one’ and having only just arrived on the wedding scene, it’s all a bit scary!
Then we came across Guy. He looked nice, a friendly face & just quite normal. But, he is so much more than that! Funny, light hearted & doesn’t take himself too seriously! From the moment we first met him on FaceTime, we felt comfortable and in safe hand. It’s also like having your own wedding planner! We got great advice on lots of other aspects of our day too from timings to speeches! – Double whammy!
He arrived on time, looking smart & professional and we instantly felt relaxed in his presence and we had great fun during our ‘couples photoshoot’. No moment was too structured or false. We felt so comfortable & had some great laughs.
Guy was such a great, important part of our wedding day & captured all the best bits! His experience and knowledge really shines through and we felt as if we glided through our day.
Our photographs are so beautiful & will be treasured forever. We can’t recommend Guy enough, he was one of the best decisions we made!”
“We first came across Guy at another friends’ wedding, where we were impressed by his photos, sense of humour and professionalism. Having now used Guy for our own wedding, we cannot speak highly enough of him!
Guy immediately put us at ease when he arrived on the day and was very attentive throughout, always making sure we had everything we needed. We also ended up having a lot more fun than we thought when we were having our photos taken. His sense of humour helped relax us at a time when we might otherwise have felt awkward, and this all shone through in the photos he took. I don’t think either of us expected to have so much fun with our photographer, but it says a lot that we (and our family and friends) look back on our day and consider him to be a big part of it.
Most importantly, we couldn’t be happier with the photos. Guy captured the spirit of the day and it’s great to be able to look through the photos now and see all the moments we missed – we really will cherish them.
We are busy recommending Guy to all our unmarried friends, and would urge anyone reading this to go for it. Guy is genuinely great.”
“Guy wrote on his blog that he liked us from the moment we met well the feeling was mutual!! Guy put us at ease immediately and was always on hand to offer pearls of wedding wisdom. It felt like he was part of the wedding party whilst stealthily taking photographs.
The photographs perfectly captured the feeling of the day. The little extras Guy includes like his instagram and blog posts helps build the excitement and illustrates his attention to detail looking after us. We are now addicted to reading his blog!
If you are looking for a genuine photographer that can beautifully capture raw emotion and tell your story then Guy is your man. We don’t plan to do it again but we would love an excuse to work with him one more time.”
We first met Guy when he was the photographer at Holly and Steve’s wedding in 2012 – I was one of the bridesmaids and Jack was a new addition to the group. At Holly’s wedding I was struck with how friendly and funny Guy was – he put Holly (and the nervous bridesmaids!) at ease while we were all getting ready and just blended into the day. The resulting photos were absolutely beautiful – the shots of Holly and Steve around the hotel grounds were so lovely and all of the ones in the venue and taken at the wedding breakfast truly captured the laughter, fun and love.
When Jack and I started wedding planning in 2016, Guy was our first choice of photographer, but we prioritised venue finding first. When we decided on RSA House and Guy’s details were in the welcome pack we knew it was fate! At our wedding in October, Guy was amazing – it was an emotional day but he made everything seem more relaxed from the moment he arrived. Our son, Sam, was clearly more relaxed than others as he managed to fall asleep mid-vow, something Guy captured perfectly!
Neither of us noticed Guy during the ceremony or wedding breakfast – but surely that’s what you want? Somebody capturing every moment without standing in front of the registrar or blocking a guest’s view! Between the ceremony and dining, Guy asked us to go for a walk around the Adelphi and Embankment Gardens. This was such a great idea – to have time as a two, to have natural photos taken and to take a breather from all the excitement! We wandered for about an hour and the resulting photos are so special – definitely what we wanted when we booked Guy and ones we’ll treasure.
Every single person who has seen the album has said how stunning the photos are and how we must be so thrilled with them. We are. Thank you so much Guy – you are top of our photographer recommendation list!
It was an absolute privilege to have Guy as the photographer for our wedding! There was no stress in the run up to the big day and he put us so at ease about the running of the day and some of our worries (including the avid hourly check of the weather forecast!!).
From the moment he arrived, it was as if we’d known him forever and made us all feel so comfortable, so much so that Emily’s mother had him transporting hoovers between the marquee and the house. From the ambience of the Church service, to the heartfelt speeches, the dancing and even the beer pong, Guy captured the feeling of our wedding completely perfectly! The most wonderful balance of those beautiful photos that we’ve always wanted, to the shots of us downing champagne and dancing!
He was an absolute pro: on the day dealing with everyone, getting the shots we wanted, ensuring that the photos didn’t take us away from the party for too long, assessing the rain forecast! To receiving the most beautiful photos online and in print post wedding. We could never praise him highly enough and are so grateful that we have such wonderful photos of our wedding to cherish so THANK YOU!!
“I first met Guy a few years ago when he photographed my friends’ wedding. I loved how natural their wedding photos were, so we were delighted when we heard that Guy was available to photograph our wedding as well.
Guy was brilliant; neither Matt or I particularly enjoy having our photograph taken but as soon as Guy arrived he put everyone at ease and was totally in control. He’s incredibly relaxed, really fun and so professional – so much so that we barely realised he was taking photos of us!
In fact, when we looked back through our photos for the first time we were totally amazed by how many incredible moments he had caught without us realising he was there. He really captured the vibe, energy and happiness of the day and we’re instantly transported back to those moments whenever we look through the photos.
We honestly can’t thank you enough!”
“It’s at times like this, I wish I was better with words. Guy deserves the absolute best, so I will try my hardest!
During our wedding prep, one thing that was very clear to us both was making sure we had special photos to help us relive the day over and over. After looking at what felt like hundreds of photographers, we stopped at Guy. The love and joy captured in his photography was an absolute winner!
When it came to our big day we were not disappointed one bit. Guy is a genuinely lovely man, from the ‘get go’ he made us feel at ease and fitted into the day brilliantly. Many guest after the day commented how discrete Guy was and how wonderful the photos were. It was hugely important to us that we loved the photos and we were not let down by Guy. He really is an absolute pro, and we would highly recommend him.
We cant thank you enough Guy, for giving us priceless memories of our special day.”
“If you are reading this, then you are probably in the throes of “wedmin” – juggling the 101 balls in the air to ensure your wedding day is all you hoped for. All we can say is, thank goodness for Guy!
Having been personally recommended by our friends (Chrissie and Will – have a look on the website, their photos are amazing!), we got in touch with Guy and from the first moment we spoke to him it was clear he knew his stuff and we could relax. Guy really cares about your wedding, and he takes the time to talk to you beforehand to get a feel for your personalities and to understand the types of shots you are after. He seamlessly blends in on the day and, as is clear from all of the beautiful examples on this website, he truly does capture those special moments like no other photographer we’ve seen.
The shots are not staged, they tell your story and they really do melt your hearts, make you smile, cry and giggle every time you look at them long after the wedding…and that’s the whole point isn’t it?
Thank you Guy – you really are miles ahead of the rest. ”
“Our wedding photographer was a key priority to get right when we were planning our wedding last year. We both had a very set idea of what we did (and didn’t!) want and we were looking for someone who really understood us as a couple and made us feel relaxed. Guy acted with complete respect when the Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy had a few restrictions around the photography permitted and we knew we were in safe hands as he had already been involved with a number of weddings at the Royal Society of Society (RSA) where our celebrations continued.
It’s so important to have someone that is discreet, yet still captures those incredible action shots you never imagined you would see at your wedding!
So many of our guests said how fantastic Guy was on the day and how beautiful the photos he took of us both are. We had a lot of fun with Guy – sneaking out of our own reception to follow him around the back streets of The Strand, wandering around Embankment Gardens and through Gordon’s Wine Bar, was a highlight we will never forget!
We have some truly unique wedding photos that we can’t stop looking at and which we will treasure forever. We have already started recommending Guy to friends and family and would like to thank him again for playing such an important part in the happiest day of our lives.”
We found Guy online and were immediately drawn to his style of photography. He was quick to respond to our request for a Skype call to chat through what we wanted, what he did, and most importantly to check that we got on. Having spoken with him it was immediately obvious that he was exactly what we were looking for.
The photos obviously speak for themselves; poring over the warmest of memories for the first time while on honeymoon was the perfect way to relive the day.
Guy was incredibly punctual, professional, discreet and genuinely a real pleasure to have with us on the day. He was also very level headed and helped out when timings inevitably started to slip! We had a videographer who Guy had not worked with before but (credit to Ben as well) they got on amazingly well and gave us some incredible memories of our day.
We would not hesitate in recommending Guy, he was a pleasure to have around, incredibly professional and has captured photos we’ll treasure for many years to come.
“There is nothing that we would change about our wedding day, and asking Guy to take the photographs was one of the best decisions we made. It is testament to his professionalism that dozens of our guests have commented on the excellence of his work.
Guy’s messages in the run-up to the wedding ensured that the preparations were hassle-free. On the day itself, he was fantastic: supportive and patient during the drizzle; brilliantly efficient when sunshine broke through the clouds. Inside the wedding venue, he had an incredible knack of capturing the moments that mattered most, all the while remaining so unobtrusive that at times we thought that he had gone home!
The photographs are mesmerising. The hard part for us will be choosing which ones to include in the album. The easy bit is writing this testimonial and recommending Guy to others.”
“We love Guy and could not recommend him highly enough! Firstly and foremost, he took the most amazing pictures of our wedding day – capturing special moments that might otherwise have passed us by. He beautifully caught moments in time, the biggest of natural smiles, and all of the details we have worked so hard to create.
Secondly, he is so experienced that you can’t be in anything but safe hands. He knew our venue and the best possible ways to use every nook and cranny, he knew the other suppliers (who were so excited to work with him again!), and he knew how best to capture amazing photos whilst still allowing us to enjoy our day and time with our guests.
And finally, he is just the nicest person to deal with in advance and on the big day! From the moment we spoke on Skype before signing on the dotted line, through our pre-wedding shoot and the big day itself, Guy was faultless approachable, knowledgeable and all-round wonderful. He gave us honest advice about matters like the length of drinks reception to have, always responded quickly to emails or calls, and knew exactly what to do on the day. So much so that it never felt awkward – more like having a super talented additional friend or guest there.
We would book Guy again in a heartbeat and are absolutely blown away by his talent. Thank you for indulging us with it!”
“At our first meeting with Guy, we knew he was the perfect photographer for our wedding – having already looked at Guy’s photos online, we already knew we loved his style but didn’t know if we would feel relaxed around him. However within minutes we got on great as he is such an easy personality to get on with and we also knew our guests would be comfortable around him too. On the lead up to the big day, Guy was always only an email away and was very prompt (and polite!) at answering all our silly questions! On the day itself, Guy was fantastic and both we and our guests have only the highest praise for him.
The photos certainly did not disappoint!! Words cannot do justice to how brilliant his photos are. We absolutely love them still 9 months on! And there are still those that take our breath away despite having looked at them countless times over. He somehow managed to catch all those special moments and also managed to get photographs of all of our guests as well as the wedding venue without being obtrusive.
We would absolutely 100% recommend him with no reservations at all. Thank you so much Guy!
Guy words cannot describe how amazingly you have captured our day. Many of these shots we have no idea where you were even hiding. When we met in May last year you ‘got us’ straight away and we knew instantly we wanted you. You have delivered on all of your promises that evening …. and then some! Natural and relaxed.
We knew that we had the best day ever but the smiles in this album are infectious. Bess cried all the way through the blog with your kind words and we have smiled, laughed and cried through the whole album. The moments you have captured are just perfect and the memories of our day could never possibly fade thanks to you!
We can never show you enough love and gratitude for this but it is certainly *punch the air time*. You smashed it!!
All our love
Bess and Lou xxx
“After looking at his beautiful portfolio online, I (the bride) spoke to Guy on the phone for about an hour, where he explained how he worked and we got to know each other. He had so much time to give me to talk through his style and approach, as well as giving me tips from his wealth of experience of weddings! I instantly liked him and his approach, so after speaking with my now husband about it all, we booked him! We also loved that he knew our venue and the owner of the venue so well, that we had utmost trust in him that he would make all the right decisions. Guy captured the day exactly how we experienced it – beautiful, intimate, emotional & filled with love. Guy was an integral to our wedding & went above & beyond what you expect from a photographer.Not only is he a warm and lovely guy, he is cool calm & collected & made the day run smoothly (in fact we gave him the additional title of Wedding Coordinator).He built a wonderful rapport with everyone and took photos so subtly we didn’t know he was there. We would recommend him a thousand times over.”
“From our first meeting we both knew that Guy was the perfect photographer choice for us. He took the time to understand our relationship and how we are with each other, humour over romance. On the day of our wedding Guy really demonstrated his high degree of professionalism and knew exactly how to get great shots that were ‘of the moment’ and not forced. He made us feel utterly at ease in such a unique experience and alien environment. A genuinely nice ‘Guy’ that puts others at ease with a real passion for his art the results of which truly made our wedding day special.
The pictures are incredible – Thank you Guy”
“Guy was highly recommended by a friend of ours and we were naturally delighted when he was available on our wedding date. He instantly put us as ease on the big day with his friendly and approachable demeanour. His unobtrusive approach was exactly what we were looking for and all of the wedding party loved him.
He captured the essence of the day perfectly and the final photographs were a great mixture of natural and candid shots. So many of our guests have commented on the quality of the photographs and most importantly it has given us a marvellous portfolio to treasure forever.
We would recommend Guy to anyone looking to capture their big day!”
“What can I say? Guy was fantastic- right from the get go I knew he had our backs and true to form he delivered on the day. His knowledge and experience were invaluable in helping us plan the day. The photos were brilliant and he documented the day beautifully. Guy doesn’t just take photos he captures those little moments which you may miss. It was a pleasure having him there!”
“It’s difficult to put into words just how wonderful Guy is. He fits in so well that you hardly even know he is there. I was astounded by how well he put the children and more self-conscious at ease, but mainly how he captured the beauty and magic of our day. Every emotion he has translated into the most stunning photos, they effortlessly convey the absolute joy we felt and has immortalised the best day of our lives. He is a true professional and cannot commend him highly enough”
“Guy is a unique talent. I get emotional just thinking about what he managed to create through his photography on that day. He told a story. He picked moments so precious, and so treasured, and captured them in one single image. Precious memories will always remain, but the details will and undoubtedly do, fade over time. Guy captured those for us. I can look at them every single day, and remember every smile, every glance, and every tear. This is true talent.”
“Guy’s photos are so natural! He manages to capture the most precious moments of the day and make them more beautiful than they really are – isn’t that what it’s all about? I loved the preview of our wedding photos that came with such lovely words about us and our day – it was so personal. I’ve friends who read it and said it brought tears to their eyes! Guy’s has a very natural and easy way about him, I felt like he was more of a guest than a supplier & I think that’s how it should feel when you decide to involve someone in your whole day. Guy’s photos are stunning. ALWAYS. He took such beautiful pictures at my sister’s wedding – I wanted beautiful pictures too!”
“Planning a destination wedding in London from the States comes with its own unique set of challenges and worries, but from the moment we did our first Skype chat with Guy a month prior to our wedding, we knew we were in good hands. Not only is Guy an amazing photographer, he’s also just incredible fun to be around. We had a small wedding – 20 people including us – made up of our closest friends and family, and Guy fit with the group perfectly. No one wanted him to leave at the end of the night. We thought the hugs would never end!
Guy captured or day in a way no one else could – the laughs, the tender moments, the Facetime chats with friends back home who couldn’t make it. Every time we look at our photos we’re able to relive every moment from our day. We can’t wait to get back to London and ring Guy for a proper pint. He’s incredible. Book him. You certainly won’t regret it.”
“Choosing Guy as our photographer was the easiest decision we had to make for our wedding. We took one look at his portfolio and knew instantly that his style of photography was exactly what we were after so booked him pretty much directly after booking our venue.
On the day, Guy made everyone he came into contact with feel completely comfortable and at ease, joining in with a few jokes and so ensuring that all of the photos were natural and free from awkward smiles and poses. He was so unobtrusive that a few of our friends thought we hadn’t bothered with a photographer and yet he captured every moment! We trusted that he’d take the best shots possible to represent our day and we weren’t disappointed. We are absolutely thrilled with the final photos and can’t stop looking at them! All of the shots show our wedding guests naturally and encapsulate some of their personality which is priceless in a photograph. Our family and friends are big fans of the photos too – several friends are now keen to book Guy for their upcoming weddings! We know many people who have said that they regretted their choice in photographer for their wedding so we’re loving sitting there smugly with our beautiful photos which speak loudly for themselves.”
“Guy is simply the best photographer. After a lot of deliberation over many great photographers in the industry Guy stood out by a long mile. The documentary style of Guy’s photography was an absolute winner for us – we wanted to be able to relive our day over and over again. His portfolio really grabbed our attention and our dream was for our photos to look like his. We got on with Guy the minute we met him over a skype call – he has a great sense of humour and is very professional in his approach and preparation for the big day. We instantly knew he would blend into a crowd of our guests and that the guests would enjoy his company as well as us. The photographs that Guy captured for our day speak for themselves and Guy performed exactly what it said on the tin capturing every precious moment of our best day ever. The emotion, the laughter, the friendship and most importantly the love just radiates from his collection of amazing photos and I cannot thank him enough for this. Guy is exceptional at what he does, genuine and delivers. He was a pleasure to work with and would recommend him to anyone. He deserves to be recognised.”
“We wanted to thank you for taking such marvellous photos of our big day. You said you’d ‘document the day’ and that’s exactly what you did. Looking back at them now, we can feel every emotion we felt on the day, and everyone else’s, which is just so brilliant! You made us feel completely at ease from the pre-wedding shoot and throughout the wedding day, from breakfast to the first dance – you were like an old chum! We’ll be recommending you as life coach, nerve-smasher and of course, top class photographer to all of our friends in the future.
For now, we’ll continue to swoon over all the other weddings you capture, and follow you closely on Instagram 😉

“What can I say to properly do Guy and his amazing work justice?! To say we were ecstatic with Guy’s photographs of our wedding is an understatement- they were truly fantastic and captured the magic of the day perfectly. Looking at them brings a tear to my eye! As so many of our friends and family have commented, Guy has given us a way to always remember how special our day was, for which we can’t thank him enough. Professional, funny, and truly talented. An asset and a must for every wedding day. His work blows me away – beautiful, effortless, romantic, flawless, heartfelt – he manages to capture the true emotion of the day which is a very special and hard to find quality. Top all of that off with the fact he is a great chap and you simply couldn’t choose anyone else to be part of the best day of your life.”
We just wanted to thank you properly, now that we’ve come back down to earth, for taking such beautiful photos of our wedding. We’d put our hearts and souls into making it a day to remember, and your shots captured every moment perfectly. So many of our guests have commented on how unobtrusive you were. Your skill and attention to detail shows through in every shot, and these photos will be one of our most treasured possessions for the rest of our lives. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you from start to finish; you put us at ease at every step and the results are stunning. We’ll continue to pass your details on to anyone who’ll care to listen and hopefully see you at another wedding one day!
With love, Will and Chrissie”
“I basically follow Guy and his weddings like you would your favourtie magazine – waiting for the next blog to be posted! I love how each one is different and special in its own way and his blogs are magical and emotional. We wanted our own little peice of Guy Collier magic for our day……Guy makes you feel at ease during the whole day (and even before with a fountain of knowledge and advice!). He not only captured every wonderful moment and every single emotion of our day he also calmed both of us down with words of wisdom when we needed it – he became so much more than just our photographer and truly became part our day. The quality of his photos and his creative ability has left us with timeless photos that we will treasure and relive for years to come.”
“If you are reading this because you are trying to decide whether to use Guy or not, let me make it perfectly clear for you… Just book him. Stop reading this and do it now! You will not regret it. You have probably seen the photos on his site which speak for themselves (and 1000 words). So there is really no reason for you to not use him, however if you need more clarification, keep reading…
Guy was actually recommended to me by another photographer who does product shots for our website. When he said to speak to Guy Collier because he is “very good”, I immediately knew that he would be excellent. Having such a review from someone who produces breath-taking work themselves was all we needed as far as testimonials were concerned. I also dabble with photography myself, and I think I’ve got to the stage where I can tell what’s good quality work and what’s not – even if I can’t quite reproduce it myself!
We originally set a budget for a photographer, and I must admit Guy’s prices were higher than we planned to pay. But one look through his blog will show you that you get what you pay for and more. His work is stunning. If National Geographic shot a wedding, the images would look like his. I actually called them to see if they wanted to shoot ours. They said they didn’t. Their loss!
We spoke to Guy and told him what we wanted. Documentary style photography and a few group shots to keep the oldies happy. We didn’t want the photos (or photographer) to take over, which has happened to so many of the weddings I’ve been to this year. Guy is down to earth and approachable. In fact it was just like having one of your mates taking the photos. It was nice because my actual mates were stood around drinking beers and fraternising instead of ushering, but what can you do!
The whole process was perfectly laid back and relaxed, which of course translates to the pictures. Guy is somehow able to blend into the background of the day so he is able to get the most perfect candid shots but he also gets involved in the conversations and adds to the day. I don’t think you can really ask for more than that. He is also great at making peoplelook their best, and manages to avoid those rabbit in the headlights style photos when the photographer says to “act natural”!
The photos of the day are beautiful, and so much more than we could have hoped for. The feedback we’ve had from everyone agrees that he captured the spirit of the day in its entirety. Guy is going to be recommended by me to ANYONE who asks for a wedding photographer.”
“Really genuine and lovely guy (!) from the day we contacted him through till the day we received our truly stunning wedding photos. My partner is not always the most comfortable in photos and one of the reasons we picked him was how at ease he made us feel. This transferred through to the day and was commented on by all of our guests. He also made us feel incredibly special as a couple. Our photos are everything we dreamed of and so much more. Cannot say enough nice things about this man!”
“Guy is a consummate professional with incredible vision. An extremely accomplished photographer who puts everyone at ease with his humorous and relaxed manner. Charismatic and affable he is a pleasure to work with and manages to capture the intimate moments of the day with such artistry and poise that you immediately fall in love with his work.”
“Genuine, professional and specialist are three words we would use to describe Guy. From the moment John and I had our first consultation with Guy we knew he was the right wedding photographer for us.
We knew exactly what we wanted and that was not the standard wedding shots of the bride, groom and their guests posing within an inch of their life! We wanted the really true moments to be caught and frozen in time through the art of imagery. Guy caught every moment and the complete feel and atmosphere of the whole day. This was all done in a very laid back and unobtrusive style, just what we wanted.
We cannot recommend Guy more highly. He has left us with an unbelievably beautiful and true reminiscence of one of the best days of our lives.
Thank you Guy
Sarah and John x”
“We booked Guy after seeing his pictures through our venue. We instantly loved his pictures- they captured everyone’s emotions in the most natural way. There were no forced photos yet he still managed to get everyone and you could get a feel for the whole day. We skyped Guy and knew he would be our perfect photographer. A genuine man, who felt like he was a friend. Laughing everytime we spoke/exchanged emails we would have invited him to the wedding regardless of whether we liked his work! He was extremely professional and helpful. I was clueless with a what to do planning wedding and he would answer any question, and we were probably a complete pain to him living in Glasgow and having two young children so needed to Skype late when they were asleep, and the morning of the wedding was rather hectic. It was never too much to ask and we are super grateful for that.
On the day he was brilliant. Of course everything you would expect, well dressed, on time etc but also you didn’t notice him (in the nicest possible way!) he mingled with guests when he needed to and have a good laugh with them, kept away when he needed to. From a couple that never have photos taken (and Bex particularly not so keen) he made us feel so relaxed the whole day.
We are so, so happy with our photos, and feel so pleased with everything. We would recommend him a thousand times over. A lovely, lovely man, and a brilliant photographer who has helped us remember our special day in the best way possible so thank you!
We are so so happy. Thanks, love The Wilson’s.”
“We were so pleased with the work Guy did for us, our photos really captured the day without being stuffy and set up, he melted in with our guests to allow candid shots but ensured we had all the photos we wanted too. He was also great fun and just a pleasure to have around. So much thanks, Guy!”
“We first met Guy at a friend’s wedding and as soon as we got engaged we knew we had to have him as our photographer. We asked him before we set the date!Guy puts everyone at ease (especially the bride who hates having her photograph taken). We laughed from the moment he arrived and we were never aware of him ‘working’, he just became a part of our wedding.His photographs perfectly captured the intimacy, the emotion and the beauty of that perfect winter’s day. We will treasure them forever!”
“After seeing Guy’s work, we just had to book him for our wedding. Guy is the most incredible photographer. Our photos are amazing. He has the ability to make you feel so relaxed and you are able to have a laugh with him resulting in the most natural looking, beautiful photos. Thank you Guy – we love you!!”
“Choosing Guy to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions that we made in the run-up to our big day at Pembroke Lodge in September 2014. The photos are the perfect reflection of the happiest day of our lives. From the moment Guy arrived at my hotel room on the morning of the wedding through to the church ceremony and onto our wedding reception, he captured the emotion of the day: happy tears, warm smiles and uncontrollable laughter. I look at the photos and I am transported back to each moment of the day.
What sets Guy apart is his love of weddings. It isn’t just a job for him. His photography reflects the style of each and every couple and wedding that he captures. His photography isn’t intrusive but he effortlessly becomes one of your guests- mingling and capturing their experience of the day in addition to the experience of the bride and groom…He has a wicked laugh and sense of humour too!
We couldn’t be happier that we have the photos we do and would highly recommend Guy to anyone and everyone!”
“We loved the style of his photos and knew immediately when we met him that Guy would be a fun, relaxed and seamless addition to our day, and we were right. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our big day. Before the day Guy was wonderful to chat to, immediately in sync with what we did (and didn’t) want. His knowledge of the venue and relaxed attitude were hugely reassuring. On the day, he was a genuinely lovely guy to have around – he made everyone feel at ease and we barely knew he was there! We are thrilled with all our photos, they’re completely personal, everything we hoped for and absolutely priceless.”
“As soon as I contacted Guy (after a friend’s recommendation) I knew I’d made the right decision. He remained in contact & filled me with confidence. When he turned up on the day I instantly felt comfortable & relaxed with him. He was professional throughout and the end product (our amazing photos) are beyond anything I’d hoped for. All of our friends & family have commented on the quality of the photos & how they captured our day perfectly. I can not recommend him highly enough.”
“Guy….it’s really hard to write an email that describes just how utterly bowled over we are by the photos.
We saw your email on my phone when we were in the car on the way home from the airport (brilliant timing!) and we decided to wait to look at the blog on a proper screen so we could really enjoy looking at them together. That was a seriously long journey home! We literally dumped our suitcases in the hallway and then spent the next hour looking at the photos again and again.
We had already congratulated ourselves when we were away on picking the best photographer ever (even before we’d seen any of the photos!). You were a true professional, and the best decision we made relating to the wedding was to choose you. It honestly felt like we had one of our friends with us all day long, and we both said how when you left it felt really strange, like a friend leaving the party early!
You completely understood what we wanted and everything you have captured is just absolutely beautiful. It felt like we were reliving every moment of the wedding day again and was really emotional to look at them. THAT photo with the stormy clouds behind is just incredible! But they are all exquisite in their own right.
Thank you so, so much. We really cannot express our gratitude to you enough. Never change the day job!
And yes, you have definitely done us proud! 🙂

“Our photographer Guy was a master at work. As you know, your wedding photographs are the most precious memorabilia from your wedding day and Guy did ours the most incredible justice. From the minute Guy started working he told the story of our day so well, even moments that told the story of the day for my husband and I personally along with special moments that reminded us of special laughs, Guy captured them all.
This is, in our opinion, a true talent and art. The were even shots taken that I wondered how Guy had taken them, as I had no memory of him being there! He floated around the day silently and yet created an album for us that speaks volumes. From the parts of the day that I do remember seeing Guy, he was skilled at putting us at ease throughout our personal photographs and his professional manner shone throughout. We feel privileged to have found him and may he create many more stories for more couples to come……………..Thank you!!

“Wow, we are just lost for words, we never expected so many photos to be edited and shared with us so soon, it’s been such a wonderful surprise. Not to mention how lovely they all are, we just love the mix of beautiful posed shots and the many genuine and fun candid moments that you captured of everyone. Fabulous!
We can’t thank you enough for being part of our day, you put me right at ease from the start of the day getting ready (nothing like a bit of cheeky banter!) and were a joy to pose for after the ceremony, getting those essential shots in a really short amount of time so we could get to spending time with our family and friends at the reception. Everyone has already been commenting on how brill the photos are.
Keep in touch

“If you want a set of wedding photographs featuring a host of posed shots, guests grouped by Bride and Groom, family and work, then Guy is not for you.
If you want someone who captures the attendance, rather than the atmosphere of the day, then Guy is not for you.
If you want someone who follows the bride throughout the day, shows all his subjects in a natural, relaxed poses and manages to capture the atmosphere of your most special day, then Guy is most definitely the photographer for your wedding.
From following the preparations of Marie and her bridesmaids, to capturing the guests as they arrived and mingled, throughout the preparations for the ceremony and until the early dances after the wedding breakfast, Guy managed to achieve near-invisibility as he circulated unobtrusively throughout the day’s proceedings. The resulting set of photographs have provided us with a priceless record of the day and a style of photographs that is very personal. The few posed shots were of the happy couple and their parents; these were conducted with minimum fuss and yielded lovely results.
Thank you, Guy, for flying north the morning after the wedding the day before and for providing a very special set of photographs that doesn’t just bring a tear to our eyes, but has attracted wide acclaim, with some being used by the venue, the florist and the dressmaker to show their services in the very best light. Guy, you and your work formed a very important part not only of our day, but of our lives to come. Thank you.”
“My husband, Chris and I got married last August In the Barn at Bury Court. When we initially viewed the venue, there were some photo albums that local photographers had left there. My eye was instantly drawn to Guy’s work. It looked so beautiful and really captured what looked like such a magical day. I knew instantly then that I wanted him to be our photographer.
During the whole process, Guy managed to make us feel at ease. My husband doesn’t like having his photo taken but Guy has a wonderful way about him and manages to make you feel so comfortable. We discussed beforehand what type of photos we wanted and Guy got it spot on! On the day, he felt more like a friend than the photographer. I have a rather large family and it would have been so easy to get swept up in the endless posed family photos but Guy took charge of the situation in a kind yet focused way so there was no standing around for hours with 2nd cousins and Great Aunties taking pictures.
He truly is a one of a kind at what he does. He makes you feel like you are the best couple he has ever worked with. We honestly had such a laugh with him and it felt like we had known him for years. If he hadn’t been taking our pictures I would have asked for someone to set a place up for him at the table Thanks so much Guy. We love our pictures and still can’t stop looking at them 8 months later. They capture what was the best day of our lives. Thanks to you, we get to re-live it perfectly every time we see them.”
“What a guy (potential pun intended)
Your wedding photography is the documentation of the best day of your life and as a newly-wed I understand the angst that you might feel when choosing the photographer to take on this mammoth task. From the day we met Guy we totally trusted him. We had that ‘gut-feel’ and he did not let us down. We couldn’t have asked for more. He arrived early on our wedding day and just got on with it. He had great banter with the groomsmen and the ability to become a fly on the wall whilst the bridal party had ‘a moment’. His skills to blend into the background but bring his huge personality to our day actually amazed me. Guy just ‘got it’ and helped us to relax and enjoy the day without any worries. … But this was just the beginning! We received a beautiful blog post dedicated to us on our honeymoon, giving us a sneak peek at the goods to come. When the photos arrived they were everything we dreamt of and more. Our friends and family all commented that they had never seen such amazing photography and we will treasure the captions of the best day of our lives forever. Thanks so much Guy. You’re a legend x
Thanks again. We truly would recommend you to EVERYONE!

“When we first started organising our wedding, we knew that photographs would be one of the most important things for us. We would look back on them for years to come – so selecting a photographer to capture these memories was a really big decision.
From the start we knew we wanted something ‘non-traditional’. Something a bit different – but ‘good’ different…
We met Guy (and his rather lovely cat) at his home about a year before our wedding and felt instantly welcomed and at ease. This, along with his amazing ability to capture every moment so beautifully was one of the reasons we chose him as our wedding photographer. And we weren’t disappointed.
There were more than a few friends and family members who were nervous about being photographed on the day (us included). But from the moment he arrived, Guy made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. There were so many moments throughout the day when we forgot he was actually there. But he definitely was, and we are so thrilled with the moments that Guy captured.”
We’ve spent many hours looking at Guy’s photographs and sharing them with friends and family – something we’ll ever get bored of doing! We particularly enjoy looking at the parts of the day that we missed, but that were so carefully recorded by Guy.
Organising a wedding can be so much fun but also hard work. There are so many things to organise it can feel overwhelming at times. We could not recommend Guy enough – if you’re looking to tick ‘photographer’ off your list, look no further!”
“Our wedding day was a dream come true, and every time we look back over the beautiful moments Guy captured we are instantly transported to that moment in time – Ah Butterflies! Guy managed to combine a truly awesome mix of blending into the background which allowed us to relax and be ourselves, whilst also bringing his wicked sense of humour to the day.
We feel so lucky we found Guy and we can’t recommend him enough to anyone considering book him. I wish we could do it all over again.

“Our wedding photos were one of our priorities. They tell the story of your special day as you can capture in one shot what it takes 100 words to describe. When we found Guy, looking through his work was without doubt the best wedding photography we had ever seen.
We were so excited to meet you Guy & on our day we truly felt like you were an old friend, instantly warming to one another. A true professional, with the calm & relaxed manner you have, you instantly make everybody at ease. It was such a pleasure to get to know you. Guy you take the most amazing photos, our day completely told in a story of shots, every emotion & expression caught to perfection. It is a true gift you have, such a talented eye. Our treasured photos shall be with us forever, tears fall from our eyes every time we look through them all, you truly made our day complete.
We wish you all the luck & happiness in the world Guy, you are a lovely man x

“When we first met Guy he was relaxed, easy to get on with & we instantly knew he would be perfect on our wedding day. Other photographers were happy to do as we instructed, but Guy brought his own ideas to the table, something my wife & I valued as we are not experts in photography. On the day our thoughts were confirmed, he knew when & where to take the photos & fitted in effortlessly with our guests. We now have the photos and we are so happy with them. All in all, delighted we chose Guy.”
“Guy is a down to earth, genuine, and fun photographer, that puts you at ease from the moment you meet him! His pictures are truely stunning & captured pure emotion, laughter, tears of joy and love from the most amazing day of our life. He is an exceptionally talented photographer that managed to capture beautiful natural images of all our family & friends enjoying our wedding day that we shall cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Guy!”
