Thank you for being part of our wedding day.
James was the photographer at our wedding on Saturday.. He was absolutely great all day. All the guests thought he was brilliant too! We asked for a few pictures for the Monday as we were going to see family that couldn't attend and we got a preview of beautiful photos on the Sunday. I would highly recommend James to anyone! Thank you for being part of our wedding day.

Thrilled with the pictures we received
We would highly recommend James as a wedding photographer, we were thrilled with the pictures we received, James did a great job, he was very friendly and professional, our guests commented on how nice he was, and how lovely our pictures are. Thank you once again for capturing our day so perfectly.

I was shocked, he had captured everything! I hadn't even realised he was there for most of the photos!
We had chosen a very Christmassy theme and had lots of personalised bits we wanted to have photographed. I am someone that is very organised and a control freak, however James had everything organised and captured everything without me having to think. I had a list of the group shots I wanted and that was it. The rest was James. Whilst waiting for our photos, I was worried that certain things hadn't been captured as the day just flew. When we received them, I was shocked, he had captured everything! I hadn't even realised he was there for most of the photos! He caught perfect moments of me walking down the aisle to my husband and his reaction also. I would recommend James over and over again! He's incredible and a lovely man which makes it even better!

I usually hate phots of myself but can honestly say I love every picture that I have got back
James was the photographer at our wedding on Saturday 1st February 2020, I usually hate phots of myself but can honestly say I love every picture that I have got back. I knew James was good but not that bloody good! He really captured our day perfectly, I have no end of comments on how lovely and professional he was and me and my husband see our 'mini photoshoot' as one of the best memories of the day. I couldn't recommend James enough and the value for money is exceptional. I have even had random people message me on who our photographer was. If that isn't a compliment then I don't know what is!

BEST SUPPLIER I FOUND
Firstly, ALL of our suppliers were amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of them, but given the circumstances the one I’m most grateful for was our videographer. Due to budget we almost didn’t have one but I love a wedding video so we kept looking (and ditched the photo booth) and were able to book @1stclassweddingphotography & videography and thank goodness we did! As the COVID situation got more serious in the lead up to our wedding we sadly had quite a few guests who were unable to join us. Then on the day of the wedding we were told we could only have two witnesses present for the ceremony.

James and our venue worked quickly together to set up a live stream of our ceremony to a screen in the main hall (where our ceremony would originally have taken place) for all of our guests, plus an online live stream for the guests who couldn’t make it, and unmanned cameras for the actual wedding video! Whilst this wasn’t the original plan, many of our guests said it was better as they could see our faces during the ceremony and not just our backs!

Cannot thank James at 1st Class Wedding Photography and Videography enough for our beautiful photos
Cannot thank James at 1st Class Wedding Photography and Videography enough for our beautiful photos and the kindness in videoing our wedding due to covid and the reduced numbers we had of most guests who were not able to attend. I can highly recommend to anyone. We are so pleased with our photos and everyone who has seen them is amazed by them all. All the final details and the natural photos are beyond words. Thank you again James we hope to use you again in the future.

We keep saying to each other "I didn't even know he'd caught that!
We got the photos through today for the wedding of my daughter and son-in-law in December. They are STUNNING! While looking through the gallery of photos we keep saying to each other "I didn't even know he'd caught that!" There were so many amazing images that captured the day perfectly - all the funny moments of people being silly, the sweet interactions between grand-father and grand-daughter, the emotional moment when groom first saw bride and many, many photos filled with pure joy. I can hand on heart say now, if you're looking for a photographer for an event, get in touch with 1st Class Wedding Photography. Trust me, you won't regret it one bit! Thank You again from the bottom of our hearts for so many beautiful moments captured forever

To say I recommend would be a complete understatement.
To say I recommend would be a complete understatement. James really captured our day in the photos- they were perfect. When James was at the venue he just seemed a part of the day and one of the guests! I have received such positive feedback about him from my guests and James has really captured special moments for us that we will forever treasure.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer definitely look no further- absolutely perfect.
Thank you

I can’t think of anyone better to have photographed our wedding
James was brilliant, not just at the photography but in effect an extended member of the bridal party, what a gentleman...so grateful that you were there to shepherd us through the day, and thank you for all the helpful tips. Would thoroughly recommend and I can’t think of anyone better to have photographed our wedding

Every image and bride and groom you see in my portfolio is from a real wedding, no models, no styled shoots. Genuine couples who are not used to posing and not used to being in front of a camera. Nearly every couple have said they do not like having their photos taken and I fully understand this an know how to put them at ease. Hopefully you will love my images as much as they do. I focus on the emotions, the mood, the connection between people. I embrace the natural flow, pace and energy of each wedding, creating visual stories that reflect the personality of my couples. My goal is to create vibrant and beautiful images that are as unique as the people I meet. My style is a mixture of documentary and modern twists on the traditional, capturing your day as it unfolds from start to finish. My images are a mix of romantic, elegant portraits (often with a touch of drama if you are up for it) mixed with a more relaxed, informal style which creates a beautiful set of images to reflect your day in all its glory. Get in touch, tell me about you and your wedding day.
