Ann marie and David – Claridges:
“Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding pictures! You were so unobtrusive all day that we only realised how busy you’d been when we saw the fantastic pictures which captured the day perfectly. Seeing all the photos brought the day back in such detail that it felt like we were reliving all the excitement all over again!”
Louise and Nigel – The Italian Villa, Poole:
” Wow, what a masterpiece Tim creates. We had already booked our wedding photographer and only changed because our friends brought their wedding album round and the story their pictures told were amazing. Tim is not only fantastic at what he does, he is discreet, quick, and a lovely warm person, in fact he feels like a guest. What we love is that we had no decision in which pictures we should or shouldn’t have, what we got was the finished article, a beautiful story from the start to the end of the day, told in wonderful pictures. The most beautifully, presented pictures too. We would recommend Tim to anyone looking for that something extra special and he certainly captured all those moments throughout our day, the laughter, the emotion and the fun. Thank you so much Tim for presenting to us a wonderful gift of memories that will transport us back to our perfect day time and time again.”
Louise and Justin – Seckford Hall, Suffolk:
“What a fantastic job you did for us Tim! Our wedding photos are more beautiful than we could of ever dreamed of, and we have had alot of envious comments from our friends and family.
You promised us an un-obtrusive service and it was exactly that. There are so many photos you took of us that we didn’t even realise were taken, and they are all so wonderfully natural. I’m really not the most photogenic person which I was most concerned about, but I look so beautiful and relaxed in all the photos. We absolutely love them!
Any hassle out of choosing wedding photos was taken from us by you choosing the best photos and the album layout for us, after all you know best, you are the professional, and wow, what a wonderful album! Classic and timeless, quality, care and attention has been paid to the finest detail.
We can’t thank you enough Tim.
Kindest regards and so many thanks
Louise & Justin Sharman. “
Katie and Richard – Priory Hall, Suffolk:
Booking Tim as photographer for our wedding was (apart from choosing to marry each other) the best decision we made. We have just got the photos back and you cannot put a price on the memories they hold of the day – worth every single penny. Tim is exceedingly talented and experienced in what he does – the result is a set of photos in a gorgeous album that documents the day perfectly that we’ll keep in the family for generations. Each picture Tim takes tells a story, and we can’t stop looking at them! Our friends and family are so impressed and friends that have been married recently wish they had booked him!
Tim has been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and he felt more like a funny charming uncle at our wedding rather than the photographer. For two quite camera shy people, he made us feel so at ease and it was lots of fun! How relaxed and happy we were really shines through in the shots he has captured. His reportage style is so unique and just what we were after. The pictures are so natural and meaningful and he has such an experienced eye for capturing things that others may not notice. We particularly love all of the natural shots of our guests laughing, smiling and enjoying the day.
If you are considering booking Tim – DO IT NOW! There is a reason photographers like him are hard to come by and get booked up quick. If he has your date free – take it and run. We booked him before securing our venue we were that certain!
We can’t thank him enough for capturing the essence of our day so perfectly – but we can at least try – THANK YOU TIM!
With very Kind Regards,
Katie and Richard
Lizzie and Matthew-Ickworth House
“Very many thanks for being such a wonderful photographer on our special day. We so appreciated your quiet professionalism and especially the discreet way you took the photographs during our church service. The photos are absolutely stunning! You certainly captured every part of the day and we never felt that you were intrusive in any way. We were so delighted to receive the finished album so quickly and it has been a great pleasure to share it with everyone. It certainly has the “wow” factor and will be a lasting reminder of a magical day.
We so enjoyed working with you and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others
Matt and Lizzie”
Joanna and George – Yaxley Hall:
“George and I were delighted with the album; it really recreated the day for us and made us realise just how much we had forgotten already! We especially liked how the images recorded the progress of the day and how everyone seemed so relaxed and natural. You were so unobtrusive – I was unaware of many the pictures even being taken, and we didn’t feel directed or bossed about at all! I especially liked how you didn’t us a flash and managed to recreate the lovely natural light in church. The album itself is quite beautiful and very clever, with the larger, romantic portraits contrasting with smaller, bustling reportage shots. I know we will always treasure the album, and how it conveys and preserves our wedding day.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other couples.
Joanna and George”
Farah and Jason-Pembroke Lodge, Richmond :
“Tim was unbelievably professional throughout the entire process , he really listened to what I and my husband wanted from our day and delivered perfect results, he was even able to keep my mother happy which is a feat in itself! The pictures were beautiful and now that it comes to choosing the final selection for my home I have no idea where to start as they are all amazing photographs of the day. Tim was able to capture the emotion of the whole day and it is great to relive those moments every time we look at the photographs. Tim selected the best photographs for our album and I am delighted with the result. The best investment for my wedding was hiring Tim and ordering the premium album, both worth every penny! A perfect record of our perfect day, you would have to be barking not to hire him. Thank you very very much Tim for recording our magical day.”
Chloe and Tim – Yaxley Hall:
“Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of our wedding day. Having seen the examples of your work prior to making the booking, we were pretty sure that the results would be good, but they are more than good – they are really amazing. You managed to capture the essence of the day perfectly and all of our friends and relatives have said how fantastic they are – in fact quite a few have said they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen! We would have to agree and we look forward to re-living the day through our album for many years to come.”
Ellie and Peter – Suffolk:
Ellie and I would like to send our warmest thanks to you for the amazing wedding album and photos you created for us to mark our special day. We feel very lucky to have had such a personal, professional and unintrusive photographer who blended so well into the background, yet created so many wonderful photographs which we can not stop looking at! The service provided from the first meeting at your home through to the delivery of the album and the additional purchases for our families were perfect and we would happily recommend you to anyone. Unfortunately we will not require your services as a wedding photographer again but would not hesitate to ask you to photograph future events and family additions.
Pip and Andrew – Heddingham Castle:
Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs you took of our wedding. You managed to capture every element of our memorable day so expertly. So much so that we are having real trouble trying to decide which of the many wonderful photographs to have as our ‘official’ wedding photo. We really could not be happier with the album you have produced: it elicits gasps of admiration from everyone to whom we show it.
Andrew and I would not hesitate to recomend you to other couples considering photography for their wedding, and we would encourage all to invest in one of your deluxe album options. It is a wonderful record of the wedding day, and is so substantial as to be worthy of its very own coffee table!!
Pip and Andrew
Paul and Sam – Canizarro House, Wimbledon:
“Paul and I wanted some really special yet informal photographs of our day and the end result from Tim was exactly what we were looking for and more. In fact one of Paul’s rather sarcastic friends saw them and said anyone that could make him look that good was a genius! From the very start of the day to the end I barely knew Tim was there and yet he has captured some of the best moments of the day and some I didn’t even know were taking place! I have some amazing shots of friends I have known for years and would never be able to capture those conversations or expressions. The informality yet intimacy of so many of the pictures is unbelievable and I can’t stop looking at the album. I don’t know where to start in terms of choosing some extra pictures to have up round the house. Perhaps the best thing about the whole shoot are the pictures of my husband and I together which show not only how much we really love each other but what an amazing day we had and that we are both actually quite good looking!! Thanks so much and I will definitely be recommending Tim to anyone needing a first rate photographer for any special occasion or event.”
Belynda and James – Woolpit, Suffolk
“Dear Tim, wow! thanks you so much for doing such an incredible job of wedding photographer extraordinaire!
From the moment we met you in Felixstowe through to the delivery of our beautiful album yesterday, you have managed to allay our fears of being very unphotogenic!
You were not only “invisible” on the day, allowing great natural shots to be taken, but also provided great moments to get everyone in the spirit of things!
We are so pleased with the end result – timeless, classic and fantastic photos of everyone, making us all lokk like stars!
Thank you once again for your professionalism, Patience and beautiful photos,
kind regards Belynda and James”
Caroline and Marc – Kensington Roof Gardens:
“The photos that Tim produced of our wedding were incredibly special, and superb. He really captured the essence of the day – both the formal aspects, and the energy, joy and laughter of us and our guests.
We had a small number of formal shots, which were lovely, but more than that, all the informal and candid photos were better than we could have hoped for, and shone a light on people’s individual characters and the style and character of the venue and the day.
It was a pleasure to have Tim with us on the day – he was incredibly discrete and worked quickly and quietly so often we didn’t notice he was there. We (and our families) felt very comfortable with him, and he was very pleasant and polite to deal with. When he was working with us on the formal shots, he was cheerful and helped to put everyone at ease.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tim to photograph anyone’s wedding who likes the mixture of formal and informal shots – but especially to those who really want to tell the story of their day through people’s expressions!”
Anthony and Kimiko – Yaxley Hall, Suffolk :
Our album arrived safely last week and after carefully removing it from it’s packaging we were absolutely blown away by the photos! You have captured the day so well and with the photos looking so natural.
We had seen them online for the past week or so via the slideshow and online ordering page, but still weren’t prepared for how lovely they looked in print. Friends have commented that we look like a Hollywood couple in the photos, which I guess speaks to the quality of the images.
Thank you so much for recording our special day in a way that we will now never forget.
Anthony & Kimiko
Anna and Nathan – Suffolk:
“Tim was recommended to us by a friend who had seen one of his wedding albums and thought it was amazing! I am so grateful to this friend because he really was a fantatic find! Throughout the day Tim remained unassuming yet wonderfully captured every moment, event and emotion perfectly. Whilst the formal photos we requested are great, the candid, reportage photography is just captivating and I really feel myself reliving the day when I look at them.
When it came to receiving the album we were full of such anticipation and, as my husband will testify, I am not the easiest to please but I was genuinely delighted! Having the story told for us and laid out so beautifully also took away the dilemma of having to choose for ourselves and avoided months of indecision! I recommend Tim to anyone who is getting married or indeed celebrating any occasion where they are looking for high quality, professional images oozing with character and capturing every moment perfectly! “
Vanessa and Paul – Compleat Angler, Marlow:
Tim – your beautiful and elegant reportage photographs captured perfectly and completely the most amazing day of our lives. From the first moment that we met in your studio in London, we knew that we had made the right choice. We were just so relaxed and at ease with you both before and during our wedding, and, most of the time, the Bridal Party and guests didn’t even notice that you were there (however some of the them still giggle at your ‘Wiggle’!). We are certainly not exaggerating when we say that the finished album surpassed all of our expectations – the sheer joy and happiness of the day oozes out of every image. Graceful, natural, heartwarming – just a few of the many adjectives we could use to describe your work. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Jennie and Alistair – The Swan, Bedford:
“Just a quick note to thank you for the most wonderful, wonderful wedding album.
It is very hard to really capture what an amazing day your wedding day is and to remember those thoughts and feelings that go through your mind. Your wonderful story book style, however, captures everything beautifully and means we can re-live our day every time we look at our album. I had no idea some of the shots were being taken; you couldn’t have been any more unobtrusive which was exactly what we wanted. The natural, unposed shots are so much nicer than having pages of formal shots and Cheshire cat grins! Everyone that we have shown the album to has been impressed and many have commented it’s the nicest album they have ever seen! I was a little concerned at not being able to choose the pictures that would go in myself, but I am so glad now that I didn’t as it would have taken away the magic of the finished album. You have also managed to make everyone look beautiful!
You were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the planning of the wedding as well as on the day. It was probably the least stressful thing that I had to organise! You have a very special talent and we are so grateful to you for giving us such a precious set of memories we can keep forever.”
Sarah-Jane and Ian – Felixstowe, Suffolk:
“We are thrilled with our album and photos. I can admit that Tim was our
‘luxury item’ for our wedding, but he was well worth every penny. Friends and
family are so envious of our end result…it really captures the emotions of
our special day, which is exactly what we wanted. Tim was so unassuming and we
didn’t really notice he was there; he just blended in achieving the most
perfect shots. The only problem we have encountered is choosing which
pictures we want on our walls! A huge thank you.”
Kerry and Jonathan – Brasteds, Norwich:
“Both Jon and I would like to say how thrilled we are with our Wedding Album. We knew from seeing past examples of your work, and from meeting with you that our album would be special, and the end result is just that, a true treasure and wonderful keepsake of our special day.
Also a huge thank you to you Tim for being so unobtrusive, you really do disappear into the day, which make your shots all the more special.
We absolutely love our album, and can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work.”
Jo and Steve – Bruisyard, Suffolk:
“we would just like to thank you for the excellent wedding album, not only are the photographs wonderful, you also managed to capture so well the day as it unfolded, it shows that a lot of thought went into each shot.
I would also like to commend you on the thought and work that must have gone into the layout of the album itself, not only is the album of the highest quality the attention to detail put’s it far and above any other wedding albums we’ve seen. Friends and family who have seen our album are also very impressed and in some cases very jealous!
So again thank you, i can see why you came so highly recommended. We will treasure our wedding album for many years to come.”
Emma and Laurence – Stoke by Nayland, Suffolk:
“Just a quick note to thank you for the way in which you contributed to making the occasion of our wedding one of the happiest days of our lives. From the first time we met you both Laurence and i felt sure that you really understood exactly what we were looking for in our wedding photography and the resulting album has surpassed all our expectations. Your professional approach to the planning and preparation stages as well as the almost ghost like way you conducted yourself during the celebrations themselves meant that we both felt totally relaxed and the flow of the day was not upset in any way.
The results are stunning, we have already had a great deal of fun showing off our pictures and are looking forward to repeating the process over and over again.”
Alicia and Jez – Stowupland, Suffolk:
We’ve just realised that we’ve been so busy showing everyone the pics that we’ve forgotten to email you to thank you.
We’re absolutely delighted with them!!
You’ve managed to capture every part of the day so comprehensively, it leaves us with an amazing memory of the entire day.
Everyone looks gorgeous and like they’re having a great time. The B&W shots of people at the tables in particular are great.
Well done, as no one recalls you being there, so you’ve succeeded in being invisible and allowing everyone to relax.
A massive thank you again.
We might be in touch down the line when we think about an album.
Jez & Alicia
Ruth and James – Bury St Edmunds
“we wanted to write and say how thrilled we are with the photos you took of our wedding.
Your prescence on the day was unobtrusive and calming – we only realised where you had been when we saw you on the video!
We have had so many compliments about the photos and they really captured the spirit of the day perfectly.
Thank you so much for your efforts – we have been singing your praises to all”
Hannah and Marcus – Huntsham Hall, Devon
“On the day itself you far exceeded our expectations. We had so much fun, the day was easy going and completely stress free. It’s funny because people were saying to us “I really don’t remember the photographer being there”- and now that we have the pictures back, no one can believe that we have so many and that every single picture is fantastic and really captures how special the day was.
You really did capture every special moment for us and our album is just brilliant. It is so nice to have all the pictures in the album, and unlike other photographers where you have to pick say 30 shots out of all the proofs, this would be so difficult as every picture is so good. It means that we have all 233 photos in our album. Alot of peple have said that they are the best wedding pictures they have ever seen and that it makes a nice change to have photos that capture the day rather than the traditional formal structured wedding style of photography.”
Ann-Marie and Tim – Nutfield Priory
“The moment we saw Tim Bowden’s website and once we had met him, we knew he was exactly the type of photographerÂ we had been looking for!
We needed our wedding photos to tell our storyÂ and Tim listened to what we wanted and captured our eventful day in an unobtrusive and very artistic manner! We now have a wedding album that will always be looked at and treasured.Â And each time it will bring back the memories, joy and happiness of our day not just for us but for all who attended.Â Our friends and family still make comments on how great he was and how much fun they had.
Tim, you made me look so beautiful, my husband wonderfully happy and our little treasure, an absolute princess!! We can never thank you enough.”
Hannah and Matt – Belstaed Brook Hotel, Suffolk:
” We were recommended Tim by friends and we are truly grateful. Tim has created us a timless and beautiful wedding album that we are extremley happy with. He blended into the background on the day itself and captured some really memorable moments. Everyone commented on how unintrusive he was and just how friendly he was to be around ! I would recommend Tim Bowden to anyone who is after a reportage style wedding album. Our only problem is picking what pictures to have enlarged as they are all so good ! Thanks Tim.”
