Client Testimonials – Weddings

Fantastic photographer and was by far the best choice for us on our big day. Thank you so much Marcus, we couldn’t recommend you more” – Cassie Pearce-Pritchard


“Marcus was our photographer at our wedding at Nettlestead Place on the 16th April. What a fab guy. Totally put us at ease. Had brilliant photos taken. All the guests commented on what a good photographer that we had. First class service. Highly recommended.” – Sally Priestley


“Marcus was our wedding photographer at Salomons on 9th April 2016 and led us through the process in very professional manner, taking great care to ensure we felt comfortable and relaxed from our very first meeting. He was very friendly and we quickly became confident in his skills and experience as a photographer.
The venue walk-through meant we had no concerns on the big day. His pre and post wedding contact was great and we were delighted with the photos. Marcus executed his role on the day marvellously; a number of guests commented on how pleasant and efficient he was. He caught some great informal shots while not being remotely intrusive. We would definitely recommend his services and would not hesitate to use him again for any future photography requirements we have.”Laura & Nathan Southgate


“We got married at Mountains Country House, we are over the moon with our wedding photos by Marcus. He honestly captured the magic of our day in exactly the style we wanted – relaxed and natural but with the special touch for our perfect day. It was the best money we spent on our wedding as the pictures and the memories are priceless!” – Naomi Reynolds


“Thanks Marcus for helping our wedding go smoothly; ensuring we were in the right place at the right time and for getting us to smile We had a great time having our photos taken and are looking forward to seeing them in a few weeks.

Thanks for going the extra mile and taking photos of our wedding party on the Saturday, as well. The service you have provided is second to none and our guests and ourselves loved you.” Thanks again – Jo and Dave Drury


“Thomas and I wanted to say a huge thank you again for our super wedding photos, they have been much commented on from family and friends about how lovely they are and how professional you were on the day.” – Thomas & Creena Hancock


“My wife and I used Marcus to take our wedding photos in 2010 and we are delighted with the results. Marcus was very personable and helpful at every stage through the process, and on the big day simply blended into the background, and we barely noticed he was there. Highly recommended!”  – Ross & Sarah Dorow


“Marcus photographed our wedding in 2010. He put everyone at ease and despite having to deal with a rainy day he took some fantastic photos and he designed an amazing album for us. He perfectly captured the mood of the day.” – Lisa & David Rutland


“Marcus was a great photographer for our wedding. He was very thorough both in the preparation for the day and afterwards in putting together our album. On the day of the wedding he was very professional and made sure we got the shots we wanted, without us missing our own wedding! I would definitely recommend him.” – Anne Marie & Adam Palmer


“We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you properly for the work you did for our wedding. We knew as soon as we left you after our initial meeting that we wanted you as our wedding photographer and we are so pleased we went with our instincts. Not only were you on our wavelength right from the beginning but we were also so impressed with your portfolio and your preparation and thought in meeting with us at the venue to get a feel for the place and to discuss our requirements prior to the day.
On the actual day you were a calm and steady presence – in control of everything but at the same time flexible, discreet, professional, polite and friendly! So many of our guests were very complimentary of you as were our other suppliers who were there on the day.
The finished product – our photobook – is a perfect memento of the day and was even better than we expected. In summary, we can’t recommend you highly enough – you did everything you said you would and more – so thank you again for everything – we are so grateful. – Linda & Richard Tyler


“We just wanted to say a big thank you for the great job you did as our wedding photographer. We are delighted with the pictures you took to capture our special day and we will treasure them forever!
Throughout the process you were professional, friendly and open. From our initial meeting to the big day itself, you provided an excellent service and left us in no doubt that you could deliver the style of photographs we wanted. When we had a question about the photographs or timings, you responded quickly and thoroughly to put our minds at ease.
On the wedding day itself, you were brilliant. You seemed to be in exactly the right place at the right time all day without ever being intrusive! We are still not sure how you managed to see us off from the church and also beat us to the reception venue in order to get pictures of us as we arrived! We did not have to worry about a thing, as you immediately built a rapport with the Best Man and ushers to ensure timings were kept to and we got the pictures we had agreed on before the event.
We feel so lucky to have had such a friendly wedding photographer who did not impose his personality on the day, who got both beautiful posed pictures and fun candid pictures and who left us with as much time as possible with our friends and family. Thank you!” – Chris & Anja Smith


“We were so impressed with the quality of the photos and how you managed the whole process. A good balance between getting things done, covering the photos we needed and having good people skills. If we know of any weddings coming up, we’ll make sure to recommend you.” – Simon & Sarah Lamey


“Thank you so much for all you have done with our photos. You were brilliant on the day – making sure you took photos of everything we wanted yet also being unobtrusive. We had so many comments about how they didn’t really notice you there…in the most complimentary of ways of course!
Everything was well organised and ran smoothly so thank you for part in that, especially taking the time beforehand to walk round the venue with us. After the wedding we had a great time putting the album together and you were very patient with our questions and changing minds!
The album looks so impressive and we love the mixture of colour and black and white photos as well as the different layouts on each page. We have already recommended you to friends and no doubt we will see you at future weddings!” – Annabel & Richard Clarke


“After collecting our wedding album today we would just like to thank you formally, for all of the hard work that you have done in capturing our wedding so beautifully.
I know that coming out to Cyprus to photograph our wedding was quite challenging, but throughout the whole process the service you have given us has been first class. Hiring you to take the photos is without question, one of the best choices we made. You were extremely calm and flexible despite all of the changes to the plan, and on the wedding day itself, you were an absolute star.
The most important thing for us was that we and our guests enjoyed our day, which we certainly did. During the day itself, your relaxed but professional manner really contributed to the day being perfect for us both. All of our friends and family commented on how friendly you were and the fact that they all knew your name by the end of the day was testament to how well you fitted in to the whole day. We are so glad that we received the full coverage as the photos throughout the day tell such a wonderful story.
Upon returning, once again your patience in designing the album was so welcome and the end product is absolutely perfect, and more than we initially hoped for. The final images and album itself is superb.
We were going to choose the travel agents cheaper photography package, but after seeing the camera man in action and a couple of albums we could have ended up with, we are delighted with our decision. The difference in quality and service received is incomparable. So once again, thank you for contributing so much to our day. We will certainly be recommending you to everybody who mentions they are getting married. Best wishes and Keep in touch.” – Scott & Kerry Elliott


“We just wanted to write to say a huge thank you for the amazing service you provided us as our wedding photographers. From our first meeting with you we were confident that we would be happy with our choice of photographers and we weren’t disappointed.
Not having attended our venue before you met with us there and spent considerable time looking at the venue and helping us to decide where best to have various photographs taken, as well as considering where best to photograph in different weather conditions. This saved us time on the day and meant that there was nothing that we had forgotten and no regrets afterwards.
On the day itself you were the first to arrive and seemed to leave very late into the day. You really worked so hard. Kate in particular is not a fan of having her photograph taken but you were so unobtrusive and so friendly in your manner that she didn’t mind a bit. The end result was fantastic we had such a huge selection of photographs to choose from and we loved them all. There wasn’t a single moment that we had wanted captured that wasn’t, or guest or family member that didn’t appear. The effort that you put in with helping us to select the photographs and arrange the layout for our album was also fantastic and the end result was an amazing album of photographs that we couldn’t be happier with.
Having seen friends who have chosen the wrong wedding photographer, we know it can be quite devastating as it can have such a big impact on your day and on the lasting record that you have of your day. We are so glad that we made such a perfect choice and want to thank you for all your efforts, and for providing us with such a fantastic wedding album. We have recommended you to anyone who asks and will carry on doing so.” – Andy & Kate Durham


“Thank you so much for making our day so memorable. You made having our pictures taken a lot of fun and the results are beautiful. You really captured the spirit and the fun of the day and even became a wedding planner helping us with timings etc.! We are extremely grateful!
We just want to say thank you for making us feel at ease immediately from the moment we met and playing a major part in our day. Thank you for your friendly, enthusiastic and professional manner. Many of our guests made reference to how friendly you were and how good you were in getting them to have their pictures taken when usually they would have run a mile. You helped us all to have lots of fun and we look forward to working with you again in the future and would highly recommend you to our friends and family.” – Joycelyn & Spencer Ramsay.


“Thank you Marcus for helping to make our day so special and provide us with such wonderful memories!
From day one Marcus made it clear to us that anything was possible and nothing was too much trouble. His friendly & enthusiastic approach, efficient manner and attention to detail meant that we were able to pre-arrange exactly what we wanted! On the day Marcus and Clare fitted in really well and as a result many of our guests have commented on their friendliness and professionalism. It was wonderful to have our viewing and see how Marcus and Clare had captured parts of the day we had missed while greeting guests etc. We are absolutely thrilled with our album and enjoy showing it off to whoever we can!
The service Marcus and Clare provided was outstanding, we would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to our family and friends.” – Michelle and Andrew Rayfield


“You were always extremely helpful and able to answer all of our questions. You took the time to come and see us and walk thought the whole day which assured us that you knew everything that was going on. Your friendly and personable nature allowed us to enjoy our day without having to worry about what you were doing. We hardly knew you were there and we have some fantastic memories from the day. We certainly think we got excellent value for money and your range of services is great. Thank you for capturing our special day.” – Alex & Nicola Alesbrook


“When we booked up our wedding photography we expected an excellent service and result. What we got was above expectations! From start to finish we got a personal service from MCDAW Photography with every little detail taken care of. Everything seemed so effortless throughout and went like clockwork on the actual day. The attention to detail in the planning stage and in taking the actual photos was outstanding. The quality of the photos and wedding albums really blew us away!!
It is not often you get your expectations exceeded. It was so pleasing that it actually happened with something that is so special. My wife and I have already recommended MCDAW Photography to our friends and family and we would have no hesitation in doing so again.” – Jason & Aimay Gowlett


“Thank you so much for your high-quality & professional service, we love the photographs and are very pleased with them .” – Paul & Katherine Boulter


“We want to express our gratitude to you for being our daughter’s photographer last Saturday. Thank for being willing to travel such a long way in one day, despite the early start and late finish, you were so relaxed and flexible about everything seeking out all the best spots for photograph’s etc.” – Carol & Tony Atkinson (Parent’s of the bride)


“We were very happy with the excellent service that MCDAW Photography offered. Marcus was extremely professional in his approach and took account of all of our requests on the day. Our album is stunning and reflects our wedding perfectly.” – Jonathan & Sarah Moon


“Marcus impressed us right from the start with his passion for photography and the photographic style he adopted. It was apparent there was a “capture the moment” emphasis, with natural photography opposed to formality, being the priority. He has a very relaxed and calming manner, so we were delighted to book with him. By the wedding, Marcus felt like another guest, blending in seamlessly and working smoothly with the other professionals in attendance. Ultimately the proof is in the pudding, and it was apparent to my wife and I just how dedicated Marcus is; going into fine detail re. album design and layout and assisting us greatly with choosing from the array of excellent photos. We were thrilled with the final product: it’s stylish and obviously professional and attracts many positive comments from friends and family alike. For us, its a great way to assist in remembering a truly great day.” – Charles & Amy Clare


“Thank you for making us feel so relaxed on our wedding day and for subtly taking pictures without making us feel like we were being watched and had to fake smiles for the camera all day. It was all so natural. The groups were done quickly and efficiently including all the special people we wanted in the photos. We also wanted our individual pictures to be quick so that awaiting guests at the reception wouldn’t get bored while our pictures were being taken. This was done just as we wanted and very well organised with lists of people there ready for each shot.
We are delighted with the photographs. The fun part was looking at those shots taken by surprise of moments, which we had totally forgotten about. We are also extremely pleased with the compilation of the album. The photographs really do tell a story and it’s such a brilliant snap-shot of our special day. All our family and friends who have seen the photographs have complemented on the professionalism and we all absolutely love it!” – John & Michelle Kavanagh


“Efficient, friendly and essential. I think these three words sum up the service we received from MCDAW photography in preparation for and on our wedding day. It was a great relief knowing that it was one aspect of the day that we didn’t have to worry about.
Right from the first meeting in a relaxed, friendly environment in their home you are put at ease. The quality of the sample albums and pictures were superb and it was nice to have so much choice as to exactly what you could have. Although they do set packages we found the bespoke package gave us the greatest flexibility both on the day and afterwards with regards to timings and what albums/pictures we wanted.
However organised we thought we were, it wasn’t enough on the day, we were not ready to have photographs taken when the husband and wife team of MCDAW photography turned up right on time. Instead of just waiting or rushing us they got all the flowers and bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids ready, in retrospect I am not sure who would have done it if they hadn’t. It was little touches like this that makes the service that they provide unique.
There were always there taking the photos we had requested and discussed, but you wouldn’t have known it. During the ceremony and reception they blended into the background but they were there taking some fantastic shots of the day as it passed.
We have photos of some really special moments that we didn’t see ourselves as we were too busy meeting and greeting.
Overall the service they provide is superb, I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family.” – Sophie & Adrian West
