“As soon as we met Steve and Sue we knew they would be our chosen photographers! They were both down to earth and gave us freedom to choose how we wanted the day whilst providing us with helpful hints and suggestions. In terms of value for money, they are really good, two photographers for the price of one! On the day they again provided a service above and beyond taking photos, really demonstrating their valuable experience. They provided direction when needed, at the same time as capturing the spontaneous and natural aspects of our big day. The end product was hundreds of fabulous memories captured in a way that we will remember forever; just by looking at the album I can remember exactly how I was feeling at each moment! A truly fabulous service was provided.”

“We would definately use them again as they do other photography. They were helpful before the wedding and after the wedding. Both Sue and Steve were great communicators and very welcoming into their home. Everyone who we have shown the album to have commented on their album saying that its the best they have ever seen. We believe they are very worthy winners of the award if they were successful. On the wedding day it was if they weren't even there and they fitted into the crowd very well. We did not want too many formal shots and the quality of their work goes without saying. The wedding album will be able to shown to many people in the future and looking at it now it brings back so many wonderful memories.”

“Steve & Sue were brilliant throughout the wedding planning & on the day itself. They were friendly yet professional & we are thrilled with the wedding photos. They were prompt with email responses & I felt completely confident they would provide a good service.They added little touches like printing cards for all the guest giving details of when photos would be taken so guests knew when they were needed. On the day, they were discreet while taking the informal photos & well organised when the formal photos were being taken. They were also very flexible with the timing they were present which meant that they captured all the important moments of the day.”

“Sue and Steve are a brilliant couple and work well together which makes for beautiful, captivating photographs. They are able to capture everytihng that is going on because there are both of them taking pictures. On such a stressful day they really set you at ease. Sue is very good at helping with the finer details like fastening your dress and making sure flowers are perfect and still manages to get those excellent pictures. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and part of that was down to feeling so relaxed about the pictures. They also set up a computer at the evening reception to give a sneak preview of the photo's they had took which was lovely and helped us to relive that magical day before it was even over! I have recommended Steve and Sue to lots of friends since they did my pictures and so far I think they have bookings for 5 of them as my friends all loved my pictures so much and once met I don't think you would want to go with any other photographer.”

“Sue and Steve were great made us feel at ease. And we had fun the photos are fantastic they really caught the magic of the day for us couldn't have asked for more!!! Will definately recommend!!”

“Steve was great. I hate having my picture taken, but he made us feel really relaxed and we enjoyed posing after. He really captured the atmosphere and our love for each other on film. Looking back at the photos I can see how in love we were on that day. The album was really well designed and quality of the photos excellent. Service before, during and after was outstanding. Even personally hand delivered album to our house carefully wrapped and packaged. Steve only had 2 days notice before the wedding, but nothing was too much trouble. He gave us a great price too. Much cheaper than all the other quotes we had. Have recommended to all my friends. Would use again for any other event/photos. Steve was a really nice guy too and a pleasure to have at our wedding.”

“Very lovely couple who treat you like friends from meeting you. Would def recommend to a friend! Our wedding album is gorgeous!!”

“The service provided was excellent, it was a very personalised package that we had and which included a pre wedding shoot at a place we could choose that was special to us, we then had a personalised signing board which looked great at our venue. The deep snow didn't even cause any problems for Sue & Steve and our pictures show what an amazing White wedding we had!”

“Steve and Sue are a very professional service, being an amateur photographer they are the only couple i would have trusted to do my wedding, The service and products they offer are second to none and having been in the business for ever Steve's depth of knowledge is excellent.”

“Steve and Sue are a wonderful couple and made our wedding more special by being their, we couldn't have asked for a nicer photography couple to do our wedding photos.”

“We spoke with Steve & Sue about what we wanted for our wedding and they gave us a few ideas of their own and showed us the variety of album designs and choices on offer. On the day itself, Steve & Sue weren't too intrusive and whilst we had a few key shots we wanted to get, they mainly photographed us from a distance - the result of which was a fantastic selection of natural rather than 'posed' shots. There were that many great photographs that we had to go through them all twice to whittle them down! Thanks to Smileweddings, we have a great reminder of our perfect day.”

“Andrew and I found the service/communication and friendliness of Smileweddings to be just what we were looking for. On the day they were both professional and not too intrusive. They made it feel as if our wedding was very important to them. Sue even helped out with my minor dress crisis. We did not feel hurried or organised too much and the wedding album results were more than we could have hoped for -stunning use of the venue, made us look fab and told the story of the day, the mix for formal and informal shots was brilliant, everyone who has seen it has said the album was so different and very impressive.”

“The level of service was outstanding. We met on numerous occasions to discuss our wedding and Sue and Steve also took a day to come and visit our venues (which were a distance apart)in order to photograph it just as we wanted and to understand the unusual location.Nothing was a problem for them on any level. The excitement that they had only added to ours and we were both fully confident that we would have exceptional quality photographs that captured the theme of the day. The service on the day was also brilliant. From calming my nerves to fixing my dads tie to doing my mums flower, small things that were so helpful. Sue and Steve had to show some level of authority, after all 85 drunk guests do need instruction. They did this without being rude or impatient. Also as our wedding reception was on a steam train with limited space they managed to capture all that we wanted without being at all intrusive. I honestly could not fault what we received from Smileweddings at all and I would strongly recommend their services Thank you so much for all that you did”
