Recent wedding testimonials

We love wedding photography but it is very hard work, but what makes it so satisfying is getting great feedback from our clients. We really do try and go the extra mile, to provide a wide range of quality images. We have them on-line within 24 hours, and a lot of our clients love looking at the images the day after the wedding. Below is some feedback from recent weddings

“Thank you so much for your hard work on Saturday and Sunday. We have had a quick look today and the photos look amazing. We will get a better look in the next few days. Then we can think about ordering some prints. Thanks again”

Helen and Simon at Ballogie House

“It was great working with you on Saturday. Thank you for sending along the link to photographs from what I have quickly had a look at they look beautiful! … We look forward tohopefully working with you again in the future.”

Demi, Ballogie Estate

“Many thanks for sending us your fantastic photos from the weekend! Helen and Simon will be thrilled with them. I love the photos taken on the bridge… They are just lovely – the colours of the trees frame them beautifully. Thanks again Neil, and I hope we work with you again very soon!”

Claire, Deeside Classic Campers

Wedding of Craig and Gemma Spence on July 6th, 2019

Saturday 6th July was the wedding day for Gemma and Craig. All Gemma’s planning ensured a great day for all 170+ day guests, and another 80+ at the reception. David started the photography at the Marcliffe with shots of Gemma and her bridesmaids, while Neil and Sandra were at Kings College to photograph Craig, the best men, ushers, and all the guests. Gemma arrived with her Dad, David, in a beautiful Rolls Royce Phantom driven by Elliot Kinch, a guest at the wedding.

Jenny and Mike at Ardoe House Hotel, 1st June 2019

I photographed Jenny and Mike’s ceremony at Ardoe House on Saturday. Jenny and Mike arrived on Wednesday evening and I met them at Ardoe House to discuss and plan their wedding. They had 6 best men, 6 bridesmaids, and 4 flower-girls, and photography from 10.30am until after 11pm. When the booking was made on-line, I was not anticipating all of this, and I decided that it required two photographers and David worked with me. I also got my daughter Brittany to assist with the groups setting Jenny’s beautiful dress and veil.

Wedding of Kirsty and Paul at Norwood Hall

Saturday (30th March) was the big day for Kirsty and Paul, at the beautiful Norwood Hall. It was raining in the morning but by 11.30am when I was leaving for the wedding, the sun was shining (a bit too much!). I started with shots of the girls getting ready, and also the dresses, flowers, jewellery, and shoes.

Then I met Paul, the Groom with his best man, Calum, and the two Michael’s who were the ushers, before photographing all 140 guests before the service.

Lesley and Frazer Wedding Album

Lesley and Frazer got married in December 2016 and were delighted with their photographs:

“Thank you so much for the great service at our recent wedding, we are absolutely over the moon with the photographs! It is going to be so hard to pick some for an album!
Thanks again

They delayed ordering their album until just before Christmas last year, and it was delivered from Italy in early January. They chose a new material, Sequoia, (in a warm grey colour), and the description of this material from the factory in Italy is:

“Extremely high quality, and beautiful, aniline treated Italian nubuck cow leather that has a distinct vintage effect obtained through a special hand-finishing process. Its softness and warm tones is the highest expression of classic vintage elegance.”

The names and date were embossed below the photograph on the cover to create a classic cover.

The page layout tells the story of the wedding from the best man and groom arriving up to the first dance. Although the wedding was on the 30th December, most of the photographs were taken outside at the Hilton Tree Tops, and some bridal portraits of Lesley and Fraser were taken at Johnston Gardens.

Lesley and Frazer kew what to expect as I photographed her sister, Laura’s wedding in 2014 at Norwood Hall, and Laura and Craig also had a Graphistudio book, but I was still delighted to get an email from Lesley confirming how pleased she was with it.


Hi Neil
Just to let you know we love our wedding book. So happy with the quality of photos and how they have been put together. Delighted.

Thank you very much

Rachael and Ricky’s wedding at La Bastide de Gordes

I was delighted and honoured to be asked to photograph the wedding of Ricky Simpson and Rachael in the South of France at the beautiful setting of La Bastide de Gordes.Ricky has been a client and friend for 39 years.

I was also invited to join the group of friends from Aberdeen for the week before the wedding –  playing golf, a river cruise, and of course, eating and drinking. It was a great week, and the wedding on Saturday (15th September) was a superb fun event. 

I started with shots of the girls getting ready and then took some informal shots of the guests before meeting Ricky. Ricky’s long term friend, Sir Rod Stewart was one of the best men, and Les Hutchison was the other. Les also did a fantastic job as the MC. The three men walked in with the pipers, wearing kilts singing Flower of Scotland, before Rachel was then piped in with her bridesmaids and Mum for the service in the hotel gardens.

Couples Portraits

If you are engaged and arrange a meeting to discuss your wedding photography, we can offer you a free portrait on location or in the studio with a complimentary print worth up to £169.

Before the shoot, I like to have a chat with you and discuss locations that might be special to you, and also the styles of photography that you like.

We would also discuss how you might use the images – to display as wall or desk prints, to give as a gift to your parents, to use in save the date cards or invitations. We can also supply a guest book with images and pages for your guest to sign, or alternatively a mount in a frame for signing at the wedding.

Having a beautiful portrait of yourselves before your big day is part of your story and family history.

The Signing Frame is the perfect decorative piece that lets the bride and groom cherish the memories of their big day forever with personalised messages from their guests.

With a wide choice of exclusive moulding variations available, the Signing Frame offers an unmatched personal touch to treasure the memories that will last a lifetime.

Here is a comment from one of the couples featured:

Hi Neil,

Gavin and Dionne

As well as getting shots of herself with her boyfriend, Megan got one of herself and got a wall Alumini for her Mum and the text message from her is below:

If you are not engaged but want a portrait to celebrate your relationship, we can offer you £50 off the siting fee, reducing a studio shoot to £29, and a location shoot to £79.

Please contact me today by email, or book a time in my diary for an initial chat by phone or at the studio using the link below:

Becky and Chelsea Wedding album

We had a beautiful book delivered from Graphistudio in Italy last week. It was for the wedding of Becky and Chelsea in Marbella last September.

Becky and Chelsea wanted particular colours for the book and presentation box and with extensive customisation available, we were able to deliver this. The 40x30cm book looks stunning, and the images of the larger groups over the 2 page spread were particularly admired
