Wedding Photographer in Essex

Simon photographed our wedding last summer and did a superb job. He had an excellent knowledge of the venue and how best to capture it with the changing light conditions. It was really important to us to have a good mix of informal natural pictures with the staged shots and to catch us enjoying the day with our young son, Simon did this all perfectly and we were really impressed with how swiftly he produced the finished collection of photographs. A really first class service and a lovely guy to boot, I would happily recommend!

Nikki & Jarred, Beamish Hall Hotel, County Durham

Right from our first meeting Simon 'got' our style of wedding. His calming & unobtrusive manner meant photography never got in the way during our wedding day, as has been the case at other weddings we have been to. His creative eye & style of shooting delivered an album with a contemporary feel which perfectly captured the essence of our day.

I could not recommend Simon more highly. He worked patiently and quickly through the day and night and brought some extra magic to the best day of our lives. We completely trusted Simon to capture all the love, laughs and tears and he delivered the most beautiful set of honest, happy pictures, both traditional and quirky. Bravo Simon!

Simon was helpful and professional throughout. We were really happy with our choice of photographer on our wedding day, but it wasn't until we received our photos we realised what a great eye for a photo Simon has. He really captured the day as we'd hoped. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone looking for an exceptional wedding photographer.

Wedding Photography Micklefield Hall Hertfordshire

Once again, thank you so much for capturing our happy memories of that day, there are so many photos of people laughing and happy which is how I remember it.

Zoe & Hamish, Dundas Castle, Edinburgh

We were really worried about the whole 'posing for pictures' element of our wedding day, but we needn't have been. Simon doesn't force staged moments, he just happens to somehow be there when those moments naturally happen. Simon caught us both & our guests looking happy, relaxed & more importantly, having fun!  

The photographs tell the story of our day perfectly. We honestly could not be more pleased with the results.

Taormina, Sicily July, 2013, Simon took our wedding photo's, the only formal photo's were the ones we asked for the rest were all natural "in the moment" shots, they are amazing and we felt very lucky to have him capture our special day. Simon blends with the guests and doesn't stand out as "the photographer" Amazing! Would highly recommend!

Gemma & Craig, Hallgarth Hotel, Darlington

Pendley Manor Hotel Simon Cardwell Wedding Photographer Hertfordshire

From the first time we met Simon to receiving our wedding album, Simon was the complete professional. We very much wanted our photo's to have a relaxed feel and that is exactly what we got. Simon understood what we wanted and delivered unique, timeless photos that really captured the essence of our day. Simon managed to stay in the background but was at all the pivotal moments. Our USB was waiting for us at home when we returned from honeymoon and seeing so many special moments again and some for the first time let us relive our most special day again. The quality of the album was first class and the photo layout excellent.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his outstanding work.

Laura & Woody, Grovefield House Hotel, Windsor

Simon Cardwell Wedding Photographer Pendley Manor Hotel Hertfordshire

Simon did our wedding day and did a fab job. Myself and the groom were really worried about the photos on the day as we both weren't keen on posing for them, however, Simon was brilliant and made us feel at ease at our first meeting. On the day we never even new he was in the background and was great doing the family photographs. 

Deborah & Chris, The Quality Hotel, Boldon

We are so pleased we had Simon as our photographer! We had no idea what to look for or expect from a wedding photographer but we were really lucky to end up with Simon. His photographs are excellent and he's really easy to get along with. We really couldn't recommend him highly enough!

We could not have asked for a better photographer for our Wedding Day! We wanted a relaxed day without the pressure of traditional staged wedding photos. Simon was calm & relaxed throughout the day & managed to capture our wedding in the style we wanted. We would highly recommend Simon as a wedding photographer & we love our informal, natural & modern photographs! Thank you very much. 

Andrea & George, Redworth Hall Hotel, near Darlington

Your wedding day is probably the most important day of your life to capture for the future. Simon not only took wonderful photographs that we will cherish forever but managed to do so in a way that ensured the day always felt as if it was ours. The memories wouldn't be the same without them & we would highly recommend him to anyone. 

Aleksandra & Elliot, Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park, London

It was great having Simon as our wedding photographer. He made us and our guests feel relaxed throughout the day and the photographs afterwards were fantastic. I would definitely recommend Simon to anyone looking for professional, individual wedding photographs.
