Some kind words from my wedding photography clients……
Thanks to you all.
Thank you for being a wonderful photographer on our wedding day. We had a fantastic day and it was made
all the more special knowing you were there taking pictures to help us remember each aspect for years to
come. We can’t thank you enough for the photographs you have provided, looking through them was like
getting to relive the day again.
Thank you for going above and beyond to make sure we got the photographs we wanted and for being patient
when Nick couldn’t smile, Lucy’s veil flew the wrong way or a naughty dog slipped onto the picture. We have
a million memories from that day and now pictures to help them stay clear in our minds.
Thanks for being a fantastic photographer and friend.
Lucy and Nick
The pictures from our wedding day far exceeded our expectations. We both dislike having our photo taken
and had hoped for a handful we were happy with, but there were so many we’re now struggling to pick
As well as all the traditional shots, Darren captured so many special moments and memories. He blended in
so well that half the time we didn’t even know we were on camera! Several people on the day commented that
he looked like he was really enjoying himself and seemed like a part of the wedding and we certainly felt the same.
Brilliant photographer, competitively priced and a lovely, laid back, friendly fella. We would happily recommend
and will definitely do so in the future.
Thanks again for everything!

Barnaby joined our family 10 weeks ago, and very quickly proved to be a proper little character, full of mischief
Having lost our lovely old dog, Mojo, in January, I realised we didn’t really have a good photograph of him, just
some old snaps which weren’t particularly good. Not wanting to make the same mistake with Barney, I ran the
possibility of getting a few pictures by Darren.
I knew he was not only a great photographer, but particularly sensitive to dogs, and he duly turned up to take Barney’s
picture on a lovely Saturday morning.
I was worried Barney might be a bit shy, as he is a nervous little dog, but he immediately took to Darren, which was
obviously a great help.
Darren settled on the ground, at puppy level, and directed operations, with me throwing balls in all directions so he
could get the best shots.
250 pictures later, we had to call it a day, as Barney was shattered and couldn’t muster another run.
The result was a collection of brilliant photographs, leaving me the tough choice of which to pick for a framed picture.
I finally chose one where Barney was galloping across the field with a big smile on his face, capturing his personality
perfectly. I also ended up with lots of different postcard-sized pictures to make into Christmas cards. Darren was great
with Barney. He had lots of patience, not only to get the correct shot, but also with Barney who thought it was great fun
to gamble towards Darren and jump all over his lens.
I am so pleased I asked Darren to take Barney’s picture It takes pride of place on the wall. Thankyou for your patience,
kindness and professionalism Darren, and for giving me a lasting memory I will treasure forever.
After seeing Darren’s website and examples of his work, we knew he was the photographer we wanted.
We really enjoyed our pre-wedding shoot at Dovestone reservoir. Darren not only made us feel at ease in front of the
camera but his personality and sense of humour made the day even more enjoyable.
From the make up trial in the morning until the first dance in the evening, Darren captured every special moment
from our big day.
We are absolutely delighted with the photos and would totally recommend Darren as a photographer for any special
Thank you again Darren. You have captured our memories which will last a lifetime.
Laura and Jenny
Our special day, 19 May 2015, was made all the more special because of Darren.
Many photographs within the church were taken before and during the wedding ceremony, but you would not have
known Darren was even there he was so inconspicuous.
The day was dry but quite cold and windy but Darren was so considerate by taking all the photographs of our guests
at the church, then allowing them to go to the reception and warm up with pre-meal drinks.
To our surprise Darren had done his homework and took us to an amazing place nearby to take some really special
photographs, and even managed to get the sun to come out.
We are highly delighted by the quality of the photographs taken and everyone has remarked to us on how professional
Darren was but also, how kind and friendly he was.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Darren to anyone who requires a record of their special day, you will
not be disappointed.
Marilyne and John
Darren was the photographer for my Mum and Tony’s wedding and as he produced such wonderful photographs for
them I knew I wanted him as the photographer for our wedding.
Darren was fantastic from the first meeting up until the last, he even managed to put my very photo shy other half at
ease and listened to all of our ideas.
Our pre wedding shoot was hilarious with damp conditions and a million midges everywhere, however Darren was
able to produce some amazing photographs- which shows how fantastic he is.
On the day of the wedding Darren was the ultimate professional and even managed to calm me down as pre wedding
We placed our total trust in Darren for the best places to go to create photographs that would capture us and he did
The climb over the stile was definitely worth it! Throughout the day Darren was calm, friendly to all and despite the
timings going wrong was flexible and ensured we had all the photographs we had requested…. even when it was
As a result of his fantastic flair and eye for detail all of our wedding photographs are absolutely stunning and capture
everything that was magical about our special day. From getting ready, to the church service, the speeches and our
first dance every moment has been captured beautifully. He has given us many memories to look back on and
remember for years to come.
We simply can not thank Darren enough and would highly recommend him to anyone, he is the best.
Claire and Colin
Thank you so much for capturing our special day! It’s so wonderful to look back at the pictures and have them remind
you of such a magical day!
They really make us smile as their were so many amazing moments, that I can’t seem to remember as the day goes
Honestly everytime I look at these pictures it makes me so happy that this day was my wedding day!!
Thank you so much!!
Olivia & Christian
Everything about our wedding day was perfect and Darren was a massive part of that. He took gorgeous pictures as
we got ready, captured every important moment in the ceremony and the group pictures came out perfectly.
Darren then went above and beyond the call of duty getting dozens of shots of the two of us together that are simply
He had clearly done his homework as he knew the best places we could go for the pictures – and he got all of them
on a strict time limit (while smiling and remaining as calm and cool as ever!) as the hotel needed us back inside
for the meal.
Darren was friendly, enthusiastic, listened to all of our requests and above all else, he took us an album of amazing
pictures that we and our families will treasure for the rest of our lives.
We cannot recommend him highly enough – he is worth every penny he charges and more.
Anna & Robin
Where to start when telling you about Darren….
From the moment we saw examples of his work, we knew he was the photographer for us. No other wedding
photographer compared. Our first meeting followed shortly after where he was friendly, professional and
accommodating. Darren even agreed to allowing us to have our mischievous Labrador involved in our
Richard and I were nervous at our pre-wedding shoot, but Darren quickly put us at ease. The autumnal
weather was magical, a feature which he was able to capture with originality and flair. As a result, we
received a range of stunning pictures that captured us as a couple and George perfectly!
Our December wedding came around quickly. As Darren had been in frequent contact on the run up, we
were confident that we had nothing to worry about. From getting ready at my parents, to the ceremony, to
the speeches, to the cutting of the cake and first dance…every moment was caught with perfection.
Capturing the expressions and looks that are normally missed, showing every emotion of the day in a
Richard and I were lucky enough to receive our photos only 5 days after our wedding-despite it being
We were thrilled! We then spent 2 hours delighting in reliving our special day. The Town Hall pictures
were particularly stunning, however every single picture was amazing and brought smiles to our faces!
No words can truly describe how brilliant Darren is at what he does in his own unique style.
You just need to take a look at his work to see!
Thank you for being part of our day!
Katie & Richard
Thanks so much for the photos – they arrived today. They are brilliant! Exactly what we were hoping for,
and we’ve had an amazing time having a first look through them – first of many! You really captured the
atmosphere on the night. I think you did indeed get a shot of everyone who was there too!
We’re blown away with them. Thanks so much again!
Louise & Charlie
Thank you very much for being part of our special day. Hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
The photos are amazing.
Thank you for capturing the moments, we will keep looking back at them over the years.
Surma & Zahed
Both Alex and myself want to thank you for photographing our wedding, you captured the special
moments throughout the day by taking natural shots which we wanted.
Your creative flair and experience shines through your photographs, which give a magical touch to
them and makes each and every one special to us.
You had a positive attitude towards our ideas which made us feel comfortable around you on the day,
you treated our wedding day like you truly enjoyed yourself and it was not just a job.
You were very flexible in giving me and Alex your time and advice to help make a decision on our
finished wedding album which we love so much and will enjoy looking at forever.
Thank you again Darren.
Krystle & Alex
Thanks for your brilliant job on our wedding day and in putting our special album together. We were
lucky to have some wonderful locations at Lindisfarne and Chillingham Castle and you really made the
most of them, with some truly fantastic photos of our special day … and you didn’t even ask for danger
money for climbing on that castle roof for that wonderful group shot of our guests!
Lesley and I really appreciated your advice and professionalism throughout. You’re a real artist and a
top man to boot.
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.
Steve & Lesley
We just had to let you know how thrilled we are with our wedding photos.
The album you created captures our wonderful day perfectly.
Your attention to detail and imagination has created a work of art of which we could not have
Every time we look through it in years to come our memories will come vividly flooding back,
thanks to you.
Tony & Trish
Darren photographed our wedding and even before the big day we had absolute confidence
that he would produce an album of the highest quality. The consultations held prior to the ceremony
enabled us share ideas with Darren regarding the type of shots we were looking for.
On the day of the wedding itself, Darren used his expertise and experience to ensure that he captured
the essence of the occasion, combining observational (fly on the wall) shots with some staged pictures
as we had requested. He went about his work in a thoroughly professional and non-invasive manner
however it was after the wedding that we truly understood the attention to detail that Darren
invests into his work.
As a result of his dedication and flexibility, we have a record of our special day that we will treasure
forever and will be eternally thankful that we placed the responsibilty of capturing those moments
in Darren’s hands.
Chris & Melissa
Darren is a true professional whose eye for detail means that he captures the kind of images that
other photographers would miss.
His ideas are very creative and his stunning pictures have left us with the perfect reminder of
our big day.
Leona & Richard
Very professional and accomodating. Our specification was for an unposed, casual collection
of photographs. The pictures Darren provided us with captured every special, intimate moment
of what was an amazing day.
And unlike other wedding photographers we’ve seen, didn’t try to steal the limelight from us and
make everyone else feel like shop dummies.
Thank you Darren for capturing the memories of the happiest day of our lives.
John & Joanne
Simon and I would like to thank you so much for taking the most amazing photos of our
Without a doubt you managed to capture all the special moments.
