We could not recommend Dom and Liam enough! We had the most amazing day and a huge amount of that was down to Dom and Liam being the best photographers ever! They were so thoughtful, enthusiastic, subtle and just basically great fun to be around. It was like having a couple of friends there, which is exactly what we wanted. They were right there to the bitter end – who knows what they witnessed!
In terms of the photos themselves – we absolutely loved them. They pictured the day so well and there was nothing we felt was left out. They produced an incredible slideshow for us which had us cracking up (mainly for the dancing pics!) and also when we sent round to our friends and family, we had so much great feedback too. Many people had a little cry too, which is a good sign that they captured some beautiful moments!

Every photo managed to capture our wedding day so perfectly. Looking through our pictures now we have a story of the whole day, showing us things that we never realised were even happening.
We have had so many people come to us and tell us the photos are the best they have seen and we feel so proud of this. It’s been amazing to show my Grandma them, who now feels she was part of the day even though she couldn’t make it.
Dom and Liam were totally professional, but also utterly delightful. They managed to be completely part of things but really discreet at the same time. They completely got a sense of what we wanted and created it perfectly.
I am so grateful to have had them there on the day, I will really really treasure their work forever.

We honestly cannot properly put into words how amazing our photographers were. Dom and Liam were beyond incredible. Not only do they have unrivalled technical talent with an amazing eye for things and a natural gift for taking beautiful photos using natural light, but they also have an uncanny knack for capturing the little moments: small but wonderful parts of the day that would usually go unnoticed yet which they manage to capture perfectly. Dom and Liam’s unobtrusive approach was also so welcome – I was told many times after how lovely it was to have photographers who were discreet but also so kind and friendly! Everyone loved them, and they worked all day to make sure they didn’t miss a thing. Needless to say, we were over the moon with our pictures and I think the best testament is that they are so accurate in portraying the day exactly as we remember it, and that’s what we were after.
