Kind words

See what my lovely couples have to say about me...

(I didn't even have to bribe them to say it either!!!)

​ “Just hire this wonderful woman already!!!

Helen was so helpful throughout the whole planning process. We met and had a chat to go over what type of photos we wanted, wedding details and generally get to know each other. It's so great when you meet someone and just click with them how we did with Helen. It's because she is funny, self deprecating, completely lovely and shares a mutual love of food!

She just got us as individuals and as a couple and that was such a relief. She kept in contact in the run up to our wedding day and came round for a cuppa to go over family dynamics. Like a lot of families, ours is far from simple and it was really important that we had someone who knew who was who to kept things running smoothly. She even did a colour coded crib sheet!

On the wedding day she was there from breakfast to the time we were all booted out the venue and the woman did not stop! We have the most beautiful photos that absolutely capture all the magic of our day and mark all the important moments that we don't want to forget.

Special mention as Paul is a blinker!

We felt so comfortable with her that it wasn't awkward posing for photos or snogging each other. There are so many fab photos that we weren't expecting that make it all more special. All of our guests thought we had hired a friend for the day as she was so natural, and warm and unobtrusive. That is exactly how it felt for us too!

 

So if you're looking for a funny, talented, lovely person who happens to be an absolute wizard with a camera to capture snaps of you and your beloved - then you need this human in your life!!

Helen is amazing! Funny and easy to get along with, I don’t particularly like having my photo taken, but she puts you at ease and makes it enjoyable!

Helen is a brilliant photographer with a great eye for detail and ways to capture the extra special moments in unique style.

If you’re looking for a great wedding photographer, I highly recommend!

— Hannah & Rory

Helen is one of the best photographers you could ask for to be involved in your most special day.

 

Not only do you get an extremely talented photographer, but a friend, comedian and fantastic dancer...its like you have an extra guest at your wedding rather than an external supplier as she just makes you and your guests feel so comfortable and puts everyone at ease.

 

There is no limit to what Helen will do to capture the perfect shot, and we have some beautiful ones from our day thanks to her hard work. Feed her cake and she will last all night

​ “Helen was one of the photographers who shot our wedding & I can honestly say we couldn’t have made a better choice!


She is not only an amazing photographer, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera & we had great fun. We felt like we had a friend there taking photos & capturing our special day.

 

Helen adapted her style of photography perfectly to fit our specific wants, we told her what we liked & she listened. We were over the moon with our photos when we saw them & still are 3 years on.

— Vikki & Steve

​ “Our experience with Helen at our wedding was amazing, we can’t recommend her enough.

Gets stuck straight in, full of energy and just becomes part of the day (including eating the cake!), really blending into the occasion and setting you at ease. Was supportive and attentive of our needs, got along well with the guests and - most importantly – with us!

 

We had a blast and were very happy with the photos.

 

10/10 – would recommend for my next wedding (jk).

​ “Having Helen as our wedding photographer was part of a decision of fate.

I had previously seen one of her shots on Pinterest and then a week later I ended up meeting her at a wedding show. I fell in love with her personality instantly!

Her photography style was equally as amazing.


On our wedding day she made my husband feel completely at ease as he tends to be quite camera shy. She captured so many beautiful and natural shots of our day. She is attentive to the littlest of details. She was great at gathering our friends and family to make sure we got our all important shots, and our couples portraits were just stunning.

 

She goes above and beyond to get photos, she’ll take you into corn fields on the hottest day of the year just to get the perfect photo! But it is all worth it!
We could not have been happier to have her as part of our day.

​ “We couldn’t recommend Helen and her amazing team enough - they were so lovely on our wedding day and in all the planning before that.

We were originally booked for a 120 person wedding in September 2020 but obviously COVID hit and put our plans up in the air. Despite all the uncertainty and constant changing of plans, Helen was so accommodating and really put our minds at ease that they would be there for us and made planning really easy (plus cracking jokes to keep our spirits up!).

We are so pleased with the pictures and think they really captured the day. New hubby normally absolutely hates having his picture taken so having a photographer that could put us both at ease was really important to us - and they smashed it!

One of the only silver lining of postponing our wedding is that we get to hang out again next year - fingers crossed!

Can’t wait till 2021! Thanks again team

​ “Helen shot our wedding back in 2017 and we couldn’t have asked for more. She wasn’t just a photographer, she was a genuine part of the day and without her the day wouldn’t have been as amazing (and hilarious).

 

Our photos actually ended up being featured in Rock and Roll Bride so although we might be a bit biased, they must have been epic!! They captured the sense of the day perfectly and that was because Helen took the time to really get to know us and just have some fun.

 

12/10. Would recommend.

— Ella & Alex

 

Helen was an absolute dreeeeam.

The moment we met her, we knew we needed her to be part of our day!


She captured every moment of our wedding perfectly, and made us feel so comfortable - she was more like a guest, than someone we’d just hired, which was exactly what we wanted

​ “Words don't do this lady justice!

Helen helped to capture our day perfectly. From the groom prep in the morning to the dancing in the evening, we have treasured memories for ever captured.

With her amazing sense of humour and fab personality, she helped everyone feel at ease and captured the most natural shots. She made us laugh so much and one of my favourite memories of the wedding is of a particular hilarious night time couple shoot involving the rain, a vape and a whole lot of coughing!

This lady is wonderful and we can't thank her enough.

​ “Not only was Helen an absolute pleasure to have around on our wedding day but the photos are incredible and captured our day perfectly!

When searching for wedding photographers we were adamant that we didn’t want awkward staged photos, and I’m so pleased to say Helen captured our real expressions and emotions perfectly!

So many people have commented on the photos but also on how much fun she was!

 

Helen is always willing to go above and beyond to get the perfect photos, including traipsing outside in the freezing cold at 11pm to get a photo under the gazebo

(which I had completely forgotten about)!!

We are so thankful to Helen for making our day so special and giving us amazing photos to remember our day with for years to come. We can’t recommend Helen enough!
