wedding photography comments

Aww thanks fab, funky couples for your thank you card's letters, phone calls and emails, you know it brings a tear to my eye (big old softy!) and a big smile at the same time (I do look a bit strange, but ah well!) when I remember you and your special days. I love my job! xx
Vanessa, thank you so much for producing such wonderful photos and capturing some amazing moments of our wedding in Italy. You were so professional and calming which is essential for any bride. You were great with all our guests and lots of people commented on how friendly you were. We would gladly recommend you to anyone!

Vanessa worked really really hard to give us everything we wanted for our Civil partnership pictures. We were on a tight budget and yet you would never know from the quality of her work. She really gets to know you before the day, so its more like a friend taking the pictures. We wanted very informal pictures Vanessa had a very clear vision of what we wanted and delivered. She helped us find hair and makeup people who were as fantastic as she was. If you want a really professional service from a photographer who genuinely cares about the couples she photographs then Vanessa is for you.

"Bruce and I wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our wedding pictures. They really capture the spirit of the day and are exactly what we had hoped for. We are also so pleased with the mounted engagement photo of us with all our guests wishes, it is such a lovely reminder of the day. Thank you too for all your help, advice and hard work, we would certainly recommend you without hesitation." With Love from Terri and Bruce - 2007, Due South, Brighton
Vanessa's comments - (Terri and Bruce had me recommended to them by another of my couples Mark and Lorraine.) They had a gorgeous sunny day for their wedding. They are such a great couple, I was very happy they chose me to take their photos upon recommendation from Mark and Lorraine, another one of my couples. It was great to take photos of the ceremony in Due South and capture fun, laughter and intimate couple shots on the seafront.

"Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day exactly as we wanted!" Clair and Danny - 2007, The Buxted Park Hotel Uckfield,
Vanessa's comments - Clair and Danny make a wonderful couple, with a fantastic family! I enjoyed taking photos for them at the stunning Buxted Park Hotel, one of my favourite wedding venues. I took a mixture of capture the moment, story book photography and personal style (a directed wedding photo shoot or posed wedding photography) Clair hates having her photo taken, so we limited the time to ten minutes of directed posing to ensure that she and Danny really enjoyed their wedding day and spent time as a couple and with their guests.

"We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for being such a wonderful photographer on our special day. Everybody loves the photos!"
Love Lorraine and Mark -2006 - Brighton Registry Office

Vanessa's comments - This was a fantastic sunny wedding with two lovely people, their mum's and a select number of family guests. A great time was had by all! Mark and Lorraine wanted informal photography, with fun posed photos of their guests so photographs were taken at Brighton Registry office and the seafront!


"Thirty-five of our best friends from around the world got together to celebrate our civil partnership. Vanessa did a marvellous job in catching the mood of day in a totally non-intrusive way, like an invisible good fairy. As for Nick and I, the wedding was the happiest day of our lives and it was written all over our faces. Thanks to Vanessa we will have many beautiful eternal mementos of our civil partnership ceremony that we will be able to share with the rest of the world! Thank you Vanessa for your magic touch which captured everything about that day and bring it back so vividly every time we look at the photos!"
With Love Marko and Nick - 2006 - Brighton Registry Office and The Terraces

Vanessa's comments - Wow what an amazing story of love! Marko and Nick met whilst wokring for the UN, they live long distances from each other and are very much in love! Nick really hates having his photo taken and when I received the inital enquiry from them they just wanted pictures after the ceremony, upon meeting me we clicked and Nick felt confortable enough to have me taking photos at the cermony. I enjoyed hearing their story and had fun taking photos in Brighton Registry office and on the beach for a paddle. I was asked to catch the moment and enjoyed taking both the moments and the posed photos for these fantastic guys!

"Vanessa is a true professional in every way. She visited us at home first to clarify our requirements and was available to talk to at all times up to and after the wedding. I wanted a female photographer because I wanted to feel comfortable as they are with you all day, and by the time we got to our day I was delighted that Vanessa was part of it. The choice of photos was amazing and the finished albums fabulous. Although the cost was more than some we looked at we felt that this was one of the most important decisions, therefore worth paying for quality. were delighted with our albums and would recommend Vanessa without hesitation". Kate and Richard, 2007, The Grand Hotel, Brighton
Vanessa's comments - Kate and Richard had a wonderful day and evening at the Exquisite The Grand Hotel and on the seafront in Brighton, I stayed late with them to capture the fun as the first dance gave way to an evening of fun dancing. Kate and Richard wanted me to capture the moment and also provide them with memories of eveyone that was there with a group photo in front of The Grand and intimate couple photos. They are a wonderful couple and their day was filled with laughted and fun!

Thankyou for all the hard work and brilliant photo album and the wonderful pop art canvas. We had an amazing day, and you have provided us with lovely visual memories! We also wanted to say thanks for putting everyone at ease on the day".
Thanks again! Lizzy and Karl x - 2007

"We would like to thankyou for capturing Liz and Karls day so brilliantly - the photos are very special and a great keepsake of a lovely day." Mr and Mrs Clubb (Lizzy's mum and dad)

Vanessa's comments - Lizzy and Karl had a fantastic big wedding at Stanmer House, Brighton it was a beautiful spring day. I enjoyed taking fun confetti shots for them with all the guests in front of Stanmer House and capturing the special details of the flowers and the love they have for each other. Liz and Karl are a fun couple and it was a pleasure to be part of their big day. I provided them with both an album and a pop art photo individually designed by me. My photos from the day were featured as a four page spread in the September 2007 edition of Your Sussex Wedding, where I have had my photographs published on a regular basis.

Vanessa's comments - Cecilia and Phil had a lovely sunny day for their wedding which took place at Christ the King church where they first met.They both wanted a mixture of informal and formal photos. As Phil is a fashion designer I took detailed photos of the beautiful red dress that he had made for Cecilia to wear. The dress was a symbol of his love for her and was made in red in line with the chinesse tradition to signify luck. Photos were taken in the church and then I took the couple to the chinese gardens in Brighton for some more formal photos in the beautiful gardens.

"Both Cecilia & and our Family and friends loved the Wedding story book, which was original and stylish! Vanessa was fun to work with and if you want wedding photographs that are original and creative Vanessa is your girl."
Phil and Cecilia Bint - 2006


"We love the photos and cant stop looking at them! You really captured the emotion of the day! The Wedding story Book is fantastic! We have given your card to a friend already! " Jamie and Laura - August 2005

"Thanks for making our wedding memories so special!"
