Tortworth Court Wedding - Bride & Groom“Rob and I would like to say a big big big thank you for photographing our wedding day! You captured our day perfectly in exactly the way we wanted. You worked really well as a team on the day to achieve the photos we asked for and had a lovely way that put our guests at ease whilst still managing to get all the photos we asked for. The whole experience from first meeting with Barry and Liz to our final handover and receiving our photos was a pleasure and lots of fun. You put us at ease as we were both very nervous about having our picture taken at first. You were both a huge support on the day as well, helping our day to run smoothly and catching lots of good pictures, especially those ones no one knew you were taking 🙂 . We would definitely recommend Barry and Liz to anyone looking for professional, friendly and supportive photographers. We can’t Thank you enough. Mr and Mrs Glossop xx”

They were both very pleasant and created a relaxed atmosphere, which meant they took more than what they said we were going to have. Capturing our special day to have some wonderful memories for years to come. There were a lot of surprises. Photo’s we didn’t expect. But a lovely surprise. The quality of the photo’s are amazing. We would highly recommend them. Thanks again for making our day so special, Pam an Neil.”

Tortworth Court Wedding Photography“We were privileged to have Barry and Liz as the photographers at our wedding. They met with us beforehand and we immediately felt at ease and were confident that they fully understood what we wanted from our day. At our wedding ceremony and afterwards we were delighted that they were discreet, unobtrusive, but at the same time felt part of our “family”. Their chemistry and patience meant they took many photographs capturing our special day to have memories for years to come. We would thoroughly recommend them for any photographic needs you may have, whether it’s a family photo shoot or a wedding they deliver . We are all delighted and look forward to meeting again!”

Sebastian's Action Trust Christmas in July“Hello Barry and Liz, thank you both so much for the wonderful photos you took at our Christmas in July party. I’m only sorry it has taken me so long to write! I hope you both enjoyed spending time at The Bluebells; it is somewhere very dear to many of the families we support and I know from personal experience how much they will cherish the memories of happy times together as a family you have captured so beautifully. Sadly for all too many that time is limited (another of “our” children died only this week) but we will continue to support them through the dark days, weeks, months and years that follow. Being able to provide happy days like the party are an important part of the service we offer and you have both helped enormously to make the day truly special.

Hopefully you won’t be strangers to us at The Bluebells- feel free to drop in any time you’re passing. Take care and thank you once again- your support and friendship to all of us at the Trust means a lot”. Jane xx

“We would like to say a massive thank you to you both for an amazing job you did on our wedding photos. Thank you guys they are truly amazing and we can’t thank you enough. The photos, caught our special day just how it was, a truly amazing day….thank you guys…xxxxx”

Lisa & Jeremy (Cadbury House – Wedding)

Wedding Guildhall, Bath, Somerset“Barry as we have said now many times you were the best photographer we could have hoped and wished for. You did a fabulous job. We had a few meetings before our wedding to which we went though some ideas and styles we wanted, there was never any pressure to do anything we didn’t want to, you made it all for us. You are a very kind and considerate man. We had some pre wedding photos, which were all fab and to get to know you and for you to bond with our son Theo age 2, as he would be in many photos on the day. It helped Theo recognise what you were there for, and there was no shyness from him. The pre wedding photos were more than brilliant and gave us a clear idea as to what your photography was like and what to expect on the BIG day! You were at every meeting on time.

When our wedding day arrived, some planned photos were taken, as discussed in our pre meeting, but other than that, you blended in with everyone else. we didn’t once hear you cameras click and everyone said how lovely it was to not have to feel as though they were always posing. We would also love to say that we can’t thank you enough for you patience with the many children of all ages that were there on our day, from 4 months to 11, all had some lovely photos taken. we absolutely love the images of our four page boys aged 2,3 and 6 and two flowers girls age 7, we thought it would be tricky to get some fab images of such wriggly children but you pulled it off. You made every one smile with your cheeky look over the camera. You took some amazingly brilliant photos that we will now cherish forever. Thank you so much for making our day!!!!”

Keith (Warbrook House – Wedding)



Wedding Photography in Bristol“We got back on Tuesday from our honey-moon. We had a lovely time! I didn’t get to see the pictures until last night. Thank-you,  they are really lovely. They look wonderful, you have completely captured the spirit of the day! We will probably print off the photo’s and send pictures of people with our thank- yous”

Andy & Vicky (Yate Registry – Wedding)

Poole Court Bristol Wedding Photography“Wonderful Photos! it was nice for me to get a feel for how the ceremony went. It looked lovely! What a great day. I must say, he has done a cracking job. I think he has got very good attention to detail. E.g. getting flowers, fascinators and serviettes all photo’d. All these things are really important as they have been thought about so it is good to have a record of all these things. So easily missed by people ‘snapping’. I think he will do well with his photography”

Terri at Andy & Vicky’s Wedding (Yate Registry Office)

Wedding Weston super Mare Golf Club, North Somerset“They really are fantastic and the memories for the two of us will live long because of the range and quality of your work. You have both been brilliant and for that we can’t thank you enough!”
