” Darren, you were fabulous throughout the day; really polite and friendly to all the family and friends we had with us, but also to the people helping me get ready, florists and hotel staff etc.
You were really good with all the children we had in our wedding party, which was extremely important to us, you were also really great with making sure everybody who should be in each photo was there.
Also, because you stayed I have loads of lovely photos with my Dad and I dancing, thank you!
Our wedding photos are absolutely what we wanted and they captured the day perfectly. We are so pleased with the photos we are struggling to choose between them for prints and albums.
We cannot thank you enough!
I think your relaxed and happy manner are brilliant, they really made me feel relaxed about it all. I also think that the shots you got are gorgeous, you managed the ever-changing lighting brilliantly.
Just to say that both of our families are really pleased with the photos you got of all of us and it was great to have you as part of our day celebrating with us. We are ecstatic at the photos and can’t wait to get them in frames around the house!
Thanks again and we’ll be calling on you to try to convince you to do baby shoots when we have a baby! “
Darren was fantastic from the word go. He took time to get to know us as a couple and from that understood the type of photos we wanted.
We felt completely at ease with Darren and trusted his opinion, we knew we were in safe hands.
On the big day itself, he was prompt and got all the photos that we wanted and more! All our guests commented on how friendly Darren was and easy to get along with.
The final photos are amazing, they capture the day as we wanted and were delivered to us quickly after the wedding.
We would highly recommend Darren and thank him greatly for all his efforts.
Darren was the photographer at our wedding in April this year at Coltsford Mill.
Darren was a pleasure to deal with in the run up to the day and immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed.
On the day Darren was brilliant, his knowledge of the venue meant he took plenty of beautiful shots around the grounds.
Our guests commented how great the photographer was on the day and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the service he provided.
The photos arrived shortly after the day, with the USB stick packaged in a beautiful photo box.
The pictures themselves were perfect and captured the day brilliantly.
We could not recommend Darren more to anyone looking for a photographer for their big day.
Thank you Darren for our beautiful wedding photos!
You really captured every special moment of our day and we have lovely memories from them. Your fun and professional personality fitted perfectly to us and our guests making our day even more special and helping us feel at ease.
We are recommending you highly to all of our engaged friends and more.
Thank you very much!

Darren arrived at the venue first and from start to finish was fabulous – he thought of everything and more. One of the most important things for us on our wedding day was to be with our guests enjoying the day, therefore Darren’s brief was to capture the day “reportage style” and that he could only have half an hour for the formal shots! We were getting married at 3pm in December so knew that light would be an issue. Darren explained that he might need to use a flash, but we can honestly say that we never even noticed if he had used the flash and the final result was not affected by it. Our photos are absolutely fantastic and remind us of every moment of the day, from getting ready to the first dance. Darren is calm, collected, fun and importantly for us, inobtrusive – all our guests commented on what a lovely man he is and how well he blended in with everyone. The end result is the most wonderful collection of photos of our friends and family sharing the most important day of our lives. Thank you Darren.
Darren was a fantastic photographer and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
From the outset of the initial meeting to our email exchanges and to our pre-meet at the venue, Darren put us at ease and listened to what we wanted. I was always confident that he was on top of everything and didn’t feel at all worried.
On the day itself, Darren seemed to be everywhere, capturing some fantastic moments and little shots that as bride and groom you miss but it’s amazing to see when you see all your photos. While he was ‘everywhere’ he also blended in and you hardly realised he was there as you got ready and enjoyed the entire day.
Family and guests have all commented multiple times how great Darren was and how nice he was too. The day felt so relaxed with the photos and went very smoothly. Nothing on the list was missed but it didn’t drag on either so everyone was happy!
We are really really pleased with the photos from the day – they were the perfect mix of formal, informal and capturing the moments. They took into account our views on the shots we wanted to capture, the backgrounds etc.
Overall we’re very happy and would definitely recommend Darren and use him for other special occasions in the future.

Having Darren as our wedding photographer was a great experience from start to finish. From the moment I made contact via his website, which Darren quickly followed up with a prearranged phone call. I immediately felt that he was the right person for us.
Darren listened to our ideas and quickly understood that we wanted a relaxed approach to our wedding photography. During our meeting at the venue to discuss further ideas, Darren made lots of suggestions on options we could have and it helped that he knew the venue (Coltsford Mill) really well.
On the actual wedding day Darren spent the whole day with us from preparation to just after our first dance. Darren moved around us seamlessly capturing all those small special moments. All the guests thought Darren was amazing and I am still receiving compliments about how relaxed he made everyone feel and that he really got into the wedding spirit. This meant that he captured the most amazing moments of happiness and laughter.
I was amazed how quickly we got out wedding photographs back, as they were waiting for us when we came back from honeymoon. The photographs were exactly what we had asked for and the quality was second to none. The hardest part is picking which photographs to print as we have such a large selection.
Throughout the whole process, Darren was extremely well organised and professional and I would recommend him to anyone wanting a wedding photographer.
” My husband and I would highly recommend Darren to be your wedding photographer.
He is very professional but also very friendly and put us and our guests at ease throughout the day.
We are really sooooo pleased with the quality of the photographs and quantity that we received and we were surprised at how quickly we received them too. “
Where to start! The service we received from Darren right from the word go all the way until after the wedding has been nothing but amazing! Darren is a well organised photographer who is extremely friendly and knows exactly what it is you are looking for. Everyone on the wedding day commented on how lovely he his and how he made everyone feel so relaxed about it all. At some points we didn’t even know he was there! We have so many beautiful photos to choose from we are struggling which ones to pick for our album! We would highly recommend Darren to anyone who is wanting a photographer for their wedding! Thank you Darren for everything.
” Very professional, at times Darren was like an undercover spy he was there but never in the way, which I have seen at some weddings.
Everyone commented on how friendly he was with all the guests.
Given the weather restrictions the tricky outside photos came out really well and showed off the colours of the day brilliantly.
Thanks for persisting with these and encouraging us.
Darren was helpful and friendly throughout the day he captured the key moments and emotions from the day which we will treasure forever! “
“We met Darren about 3 weeks before our wedding, at the venue, which was unfamiliar to him, to find that he had been there for some time surveying the property and views for interesting photo shots. He had requested a list of photos with group/family members, individual photos etc. so that we could avoid missing the one composition you think of after it’s too late!
On the day Darren was around taking photos but was so unobtrusive and with such a nice manner that you forgot he was there, subsequently we have some delightful photos of the bridal group in various stages of preparation and anticipation. Daren was very patient with the amateur photographers and was open to extra suggestions of composition on the day.
Our whole wedding album is testament to Darren’s sense of fun, tradition and artistic flare. The package of albums, contents, and prints available, is impressive and finally, Darren’s professionalism took away any stress over the photography.
Thank you, Darren “
Darren was the photographer at my wedding in August 2017. We were both really happy choosing Darren to provide the photos. Not only did we have over 1000 photos to chose from, but he was able to not only capture all the key more formal moments but also the character of the day with some great informal photos.
Darren’s manner is one that does not interfere with the day but makes sure all the key photos get taken. He has a very laid back approach and a can-do attitude and really added to our special day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Darren to anyone looking for a professional photographer.
We really enjoyed the service Darren provided on our wedding day.
Darren was very well presented and interacted with us and our guests extremely well on the day. He made me and my wife feel very relaxed and it eased away any tension she had regarding our photos.
We like the idea of having Darren provide the wedding photos to us on a USB memory stick so that we could print them off as and when required.
The application for our mobile phone was extremely useful too as we could show our friends the photos via our mobile phone.
” I would just like to start by saying how happy me and my husband are with our wedding photos we could not be happier with them.
Darren was very professional and made sure we got the photos we wanted for our special day.
I would highly recommend Darren to anyone!!! “
Darren was a first class photographer, he made us and our guests feel so comfortable. He took photos from the beginning to the end, and made it like a story. We were absolutely thrilled with the pictures which was made into a memorable day. We are so glad they we had the opportunity to have Darren as our photographer, great guy.
We could not be happier with Darren’s photography, the photos are fantastic! Darren was also a fantastic addition to our day; many of our guests commented on how lovely, funny and unobtrusive he was.
All communication and interaction before the day were really prompt and effective.
Overall, I could not be happier with the service we received and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
One guest was so impressed they are hoping to book him for their own wedding!
We were both incredibly happy with Darren’s service before, during and after our big day.
Darren’s tailored service allowed us to get exactly the kind of photos we wanted. On top this, Darren’s wealth of experience meant that he was able to give us some really valuable advice about how to get the photos that we wanted.
During the wedding, Darren was calm, approachable and incredibly professional. Darren coordinated all the photos we wanted, which meant we didn’t need to worry about that on the day. Many of our guests commented on how friendly and professional Darren was during the day.
After the wedding, we received the photos very quickly so that we could share the photos with friends and family.
I can’t fault Darren’s service and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a high-quality photographer.
Darren’s photography has captured our day perfectly. He has been professional, yet very friendly, from our first phone call enquiry to our photographs arriving in the post. He has a wonderful, fun manner and is great with children. Darren disappeared into the background throughout the day, yet was brilliant at organising family photographs. We could not have asked for a more personal or tailored approach. Thank you Darren!
We found Darren to be very helpful and extremely professional which resulted in us being so very happy with our photo’s.
Darren took documentary style photos of our wedding day and managed to capture photos of everybody that attended.
We would most definitely recommend Darren to anybody that was looking for a photographer for their special day.
Yours thankfully Mr and Mrs Davy
