Testimonials from delighted clients
Nothing is more reassuring than choosing your wedding photographer by personal recommendation. About 90% of my bookings come from personal referrals from clients who are delighted with my work.
Here are just a few of their comments:
'You made it such fun...'
'Thank you very much for a splendid job and a very professional outcome...'
We would very much like to thank you for your beautiful photographs. We have seen the ones in the DVD and feel elated. Thank you.
Many people took photos and sent them to us, but you are really a master...!
Also thank you for getting Eibar's face when the Mariachis came in - that was lovely and you captured it very well.
You do like doing weddings, don't you? And you do it so well. We are privileged you did ours.
We had a session (after dinner last night) with your DVD, all the family, English, Venezuelans and Mexicans, watching your photos... wow! Fantastic. Well done. We are happy it was you doing our wedding.
I hope you and your wife enjoyed the day as we did. Thank you for being so thorough and good.
Look forward to seeing the albums etc.

'Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how happy we are with our wedding photos. You have 'captured the moment' and much much more of our very special day. And with these pictures we will treasure our memories forever. Once again thank you so much...'
Just to say (again), how delighted we are with our wedding photos. You really captured the joy of the whole day. No false smiles or poses!
You really can't get those moments back. Although it's nice to watch the video, I could sit and look at the photos all day. And, they never fail to make me smile and will never let me forget any of those special moments!
I REALLY LOVE THE SHOTS OF THE 'CONFETTI MOMENT', FANTASTIC!
I would recommend your services to anyone I know who is thinking of getting married. People don't always know what they're getting until after the event and the results are shown. At least I can show people my photos so they can see the fantastic results before booking you.

Sorry I have not been in touch sooner, but we have been really busy lately. Thank you very much for our anniversary card and the rest of the photos. It was an unexpected and lovely surprise.
I never did get a chance to thank you for the great job that you did on our wedding. I usually feel very uncomfortable having my photo taken and it normally shows on my face in the photo. However, your easy going attitude and great sense of humour kept me laughing and relaxed which shows through in the wedding photos. For once, I actually don't mind my photo being displayed in the house!
We are both really pleased with the photographs. They have captured so many memories of our special day and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.

'You were brilliant!...'
Thank you for your part in making our wedding celebrations so memorable and enjoyable.
We are very pleased with the photographs that you took: you interpreted our brief of capturing all of our guests very well indeed. There are only about three or four adults and a few of the children who are not the main subject of at least one shot. This is no mean achievement considering that you were working from a list of names of people whom you had never met!
We also have some lovely shots of us with our families and our supporters. The organisation of some of the family groups turned out to be a bit fraught and we appreciated your patience and quiet efficiency. Some of our guests were very surprised to learn that you and Liz were not long-standing family friends - such was your relaxed and genial approach to 'capturing the moment'.
I was originally worried that your 'standard' packages were not appropriate for our rather unusual brief, and so I very much appreciated your imaginative suggestion of a 'lots of pictures but no album' arrangement. And we were delighted to receive (quite unexpectedly) two photograph albums among our wedding presents. A very fortuitous outcome.
I would be happy to recommend your services, not only for traditional wedding photography - where your portfolio includes some superb photographs - but also for more difficult and unusual situations where our experience of your work and results has been nothing but good.
I enclose an order form and cheque for some further prints. If you would give me a call when they are ready, we can discuss how and where I can take delivery of them.
With our thanks again and best wishes to you and Liz.

'Thank you for your excellent photography at our Golden Wedding - a wonderful momento of the occasion...'
This short note is to thank you for the splendid pictures of Sally's wedding. The considerable preparation you put in, I know, prior to the actual day is obvious in the results, which are not just excellent photographs but beautiful pictures, an observation made by all who have seen them.
Stella joins me in sending you both our warmest regards.
Many thanks for taking such lovely photographs of our civil partnership ceremony.
The service you provided before, during and after the ceremony was extremely professional, yet approachable and friendly, putting us and our guests at ease and for that we thank you. We were so thankful you brought the sun with you, even if you had an umbrella as backup.
Thank you once again for helping make the day so special for us and for providing us with some lasting images to enhance our memories of the day.
Many thanks once again.
Paul & Colin
Thank you very much for the proofs for our wedding. It has taken a long time for them to get round both families!
I enclose our choices for the Bride and Groom's album, in the order we would like them to appear, together with our choices relating to the overlays for each.
We were really pleased with the photographs themselves, but what also makes them even better is that it shows people relaxed and enjoying themselves. It was really important to us that we wanted people to have a good time, and that the photography reflected the relaxed atmosphere which was evident on the day.
In addition, a lot of our guests made very complimentary remarks about your photography, and the way you made them feel at ease. Really, the photography was another enjoyable part of the day. Neither we, nor our guests felt that it was at all a chore, because you made it fun.
Testament to your success is the number of additional prints which have been ordered by our families.
We certainly have no regrets about our decision in choosing Paul Allen Wedding Photography, and would without question recommend you to anyone. We would be more than happy to provide references for your service to other prospective couples getting married requiring wedding photography.
We wish yourself and Liz every happiness for the future, and the growing success of your photography business. If you're ever passing through Wateringbury, give us a call as it would be good to see you again.

These are some of the many kind messages of appreciation I have received. The originals are on file and the writers generously gave permission for their messages to appear on this website.
As you can see, several people commented favourably not only on the high quality of the photographs they received, but also about the friendly, relaxed (but very efficient!) way in which they were taken.
On the big day, I always endeavour to maintain the cool, calm efficiency you should expect of me as your photographer, but balanced with a warm, friendly approach that enables me to relax everyone into a mood which makes them want to smile!
It's an approach that works for everyone - you, your guests, and me too. I enjoy working surrounded by excited, happy people. That's the way a wedding should be, and I'll do all I can to capture the atmosphere for posterity.
