All of the below couples are happy to be contacted by you if you require further reassurances…
By Annabel & James – Wedding at Brompton Oratory & Pembroke Lodge Hotel:
Guy was absolutely fantastic from the moment we met him. He captured every wonderful moment of the day and was very discrete and professional, but also a lot of fun! His photographs are beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with him. His service is outstanding and we will be recommending him to everyone who we know getting married. He took such beautiful natural photographs and did everything we asked for. He made a stunning photo book and took so many photos, if only we could display them all! The best wedding photographs we have seen (he also did our friends wedding before so we knew they were amazing). Can’t recommend highly enough!
By Sharon & Laurent – Wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall:
Guy photographed our wedding at Chelsea Town Hall and our reception afterwards. He was great. Discrete, relaxed and professional he got some amazing shots. We requested informal and a small selection of posed photos and he was brilliant. We love that he captured the spirit of the day, the happiness that everyone had. We also really appreciated his flexibility on the day, adjusting the shots, his timing and even staying a little bit extra for the speeches. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Guy.
By Karlee & James – Wedding at Great Foster’s Hotel, Egham:
We met Guy at a café before our wedding. Upon seeing his portfolio we were both confident that he was the photographer to capture our special day. On the day, Guy was extremely professional but at the same time lots of fun to work with. We didn’t stop smiling and laughing all the way through our Bridal photo shoot. As a result our pictures showed the joy and love we felt on our wedding day. Throughout the whole day Guy’s style of photography was unobtrusive and natural. There were many occasions we had forgotten he was there, capturing our day. He was not only able to show how our special day unfolded but also portrayed the different emotions of the day in his photos. We received a generous number of photos and we could not be happier with how they look. We are so grateful to have these beautiful reminders of our day and would have no hesitation in recommending Guy most highly.
By Kirstie & Darren – Wedding at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn:
One of our earliest and most important decisions for the wedding was our photographer. We did the usual research, got second opinions, did more research. We wanted someone who could capture the natural moments of the day, with minimum set piece shots. Guy stood out in our minds having seen his portfolio and meeting him to better understand his approach and how he would work with us. His style of gathering a story of your day is amazing, along the way picking up some amazing images of you, your family and friends. Our day was jam packed, yet Guy managed to be at the right place at the right time, to get “that shot”. The slide show and book we received blew us away. Guy had managed to chronicle the day, so looking at the shots takes us right back to that special day and will be treasured by us. It is all we wanted. We couldn’t recommend Guy more highly.
By Tisha & David – Wedding at Hendon Hall Hotel, London:
Guy is truly an amazing photographer. We chose him based on google reviews, which was a bit of a gamble but once we met with Guy informally and had a look through a sample photobook, we didn’t feel the need to look any further. Guy pretty much blended in with our wedding guests and looking through our photobook and additional pictures we don’t have a clue how he managed to be in all places at once. We have incredible memories which Guy has created for us and our families and we will certainly be using him to capture other important milestones in our lives. Thanks Guy. Tisha & David xx 30.04.2016
By Claire & Rob – Wedding at DeVere Gorse Hill, Woking:
Found Guy on the internet and immediately loved his style of photography. We wanted someone to capture our day without intruding on the event, and didn’t need a photographer to be with us all day. Guy fitted the bill perfectly and apart from a handful of emails prior to the event Guy delivered exactly what we were looking for – an amazing set of photographs that perfectly captures our perfect day. The quality of his work is superb, his style is reportage, and he operates with a minimum of fuss, oh and he is excellent value. The photographs were turned around within a week and the results were stunning. We would highly recommend Guy and his work.
By Rosanna & Rob – Wedding at St Etheldreda’s Church, London:
My husband and I met Guy informally before our wedding which immediately put us at ease and made us feel comfortable with deciding on our photographer. We knew that Guy was the photographer for us; he was friendly and professional and his photographs are amazing. On the day he calmly entered the frenzy of wedding prep, within moments I forgot he was there. Guy has a great ability to capture the special moments without disturbing the day’s events. After the wedding it was exciting to receive the proof for our wedding album. My husband and I were in awe that Guy had captured the joy of our day in top quality photographs. Sharing our album with friends and family has sparked memories of the day. We recommend Guy Milnes – you will have gorgeous photographs and an excellent experience from booking to collecting the album from Guy personally!
By Teresa & Mike – Wedding at Mercure Box Hill Hotel, Dorking:
My wife and I met Guy informally before our wedding at his request so that we could meet him and go through the plans for our big day. When he showed us examples of his work it just blew us away. Just by speaking to him you could tell that he was very experienced and professional photographer. As soon as we met Guy we knew that we had made the right choice. On the day we didn’t really notice he was there but he was certainly very busy in the background taking lots of excellent shots because when we received our wedding album we were couldn’t believe how many great pictures he had managed to capture. The wedding album he produced for us is a story book of our whole day. The most difficult thing we had to do is choose from the large number of top quality photographs to go into the album. So if you want a friendly, experienced, professional photographer for your wedding day choose Guy Milnes, you will not regret it.
By Amanda & Mick – Wedding at Bingham Hotel in Richmond:
Working with Guy to capture out wedding was a pleasure from start to finish. Guy was involved from the very start of our wedding, pulling together some fantastic shots for our pre-wedding shoot and working closely with us in the run up to the big day. On the day of the wedding itself, Guy worked tirelessly despite the early start – never getting in the way of the ceremony, but meticulously capturing all the key moments to leave us with some incredible memories of the day – both in hard copy and in the amazing slideshow he created for us! We can’t recommend working with Guy highly enough, and are extremely glad that we chose Guy to capture our big day.
By Felicity & Waleed – Wedding at Our Lady Queen of Peace, Richmond & Nikah at Home:
Guy is an absolutely outstanding photographer, and he was one of the highlights of our wedding day! We found him online at short notice (just two weeks before the big day), and from the very start he was totally professional and a pleasure to work with. On the day itself he was hard-working, unobtrusive and considerate, and went above and beyond the call of duty in accommodating last-minute requests. We received the photos from him within three weeks of the big day, and we are so pleased with them. Not only did he take beautiful pictures of us, and well-composed group shots, he managed to take all kinds of fantastic candid photos of our family and friends. Somehow he managed to be everywhere and capture everything. We will treasure many of the photos Guy took for years to come, and we cannot recommend him highly enough. In terms of budget, photo quality, and service he exceeded all our expectations.
By Nicola & Wayne – Wedding at Croydon Register Office:
Guy was hired by us at very short notice for our wedding therefore we had not had a chance to meet him beforehand. Upon meeting him we found him to be very friendly and easy going this view was also very much shared by our guests who enjoyed the relaxed nature of the formal photos. When we received our photos we were very pleased with the variety and quality of them and the accompanying slideshow. Would highly recommend guy to anyone he is fab.
By George & Dave – Gay Wedding at Wandsworth Town Hall:
Our wedding photos by Guy Milnes Photography were lovely and professional.Guy had a very friendly and approachable manner. He put us at our ease as soon as we met him and we realised that here was someone who understood our wishes and took the type of photos we wanted. Our witnesses were impressed as we were by his unobtrusive professionalism. His photographs are super and a very informal and natural record of our special day. We would wholeheartedly recommend Guy to anybody that would like their special events and moments captured and recorded by such a friendly, natural and empathetic photographer.
By Candy & Eddie – Post-Wedding Photo Shoot:
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Guy. He was very friendly throughout the photo shoot and brought us to quite a few splendid sites in London. While he was very open to suggestions on where we wanted to have our photo shoot, being our first time in London, we decided to go with his suggestions and visited beautiful places like the London Eye, graffiti park, Trafalgar
Square and St. James park. His encouragement for us to be ourselves during the shoot and friendly demeanour created a relaxed and comfortable experience that contributed to many lovely and fun shots of us that were less staged and more natural looking. We were very impressed with how Guy masterfully handled and manipulated the various lighting of the different places we went to, to capture many magnificently stunning shots. We had requested for a mixture of coloured and black and white shots and were blown away by his very artful black and white photographs (this is not to say any less of his coloured shots with which we were still more than satisfied with). Guy was also very flexible with mode of delivery of the photographs (either digitally through Dropbox or mailing of a disc to our home address outside London) and generous with the number of photographs he gave us (with some further editing). These and combined with the great experience he gave us, for the rates he offered, Guy Milnes is truly a rare find and we highly recommend his services to all who are looking to engage a deeply experienced photographer for events like pre or post wedding shoots. Thanks again for everything Guy!
By Jonathan & David – Same-sex Wedding at the Draper’s Hall, London:
Found Guy via the internet and loved his style of real photography. I met up with him informally and liked his approach and work immediately. He was calmly competent at assimilating our requests and combining them with his own ideas. On the day he moved around snapping away in the background but didn’t interfere with the flow of the day, Several of our guests commented on how friendly and pleasant he was. he was very generous and patient and you can see he had a true passion for what he did. The results were amazing and he really caught a flavour of all the different parts of the day – good and bad. Beautiful pictures. Highly recommended.
By Donna & Michael – Wedding in Wanstead:
We have rated Guy with the highest score on offer! He is just AMAZING! We stumbled across Guy’s work on the net quite by accident but we are so glad that we did. From the moment we saw his work we knew he was the Photographer we wanted to capture our wedding day. Guy did not disappoint! He delivered on every level. Guy is professional, courteous, attentive and unobtrusive. All our guests felt at ease with him clicking away and he has managed to capture the most beautiful natural shots imaginable of the happy couple and our guests. The wedding photography package we chose included a slide show to music, a story book (an album) and a disk with lots and lots of photos. So, so many memories of our beautiful day. I cry every time I look through our beautiful pictures. Guy is truly talented and we cannot recommend Guy enough! Best of luck with your wedding plans.
By Jemima & Dorothy – Same-sex Wedding in Camden:
My girlfriend and I booked Guy for our same sex wedding in April. We had a very small informal ceremony at Camden Town Hall with just a few family members and friends, and wanted a friendly and relaxed photographer to take beautiful pictures of our day! We met Guy a few weeks before the wedding and were really impressed by how warm and accommodating he was, and we loved his documentary style of photography. On the day itself, everything Guy did for us was perfect – he made everyone feel at ease and was totally unobtrusive, while managing to capture all the important moments of the ceremony. All of our guests commented on what a great choice he was! After the ceremony Guy took some really lovely posed shots of the whole wedding party, and then some more intimate couple shots in a few locations around Bloomsbury which were special to us. Now we have a beautiful collection of photos from the day and we couldn’t be more pleased with them all! We will be sending our favourite photos for family and friends to enjoy as well. We were really happy with Guy as our photographer, his photographs are beautiful and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any couple planning their wedding.
By Rachel & Andy – Wedding at Southwark Register Office:
The photo’s from our wedding are beautiful. They have literally made us laugh and cry! We wanted someone who would capture the day in a relaxed way and that’s exactly what Guy achieved. We had children at our wedding and, I have to say, the photo’s of them are stunning. We’ve been to weddings where the photographers have been a bit intrusive, however, Guy is the opposite. He is extremely professional but at the same time very relaxed. He is also a lovely person to have around. All our guests commented on what a nice Guy he is! Many of our friends and family have seen the weddings photos. They have all commented on how lovely they are and how talented Guy is. I have recommended Guy to two of our friends who are getting married soon. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. Guy helped to make our day really special. I can’t wait to create our wedding wall at home so I can look at the photos every day! Thanks again Guy.
By Gill & David – Wedding at Clandon Park, Guildford:
Guy was perfect for our wedding day as his photography is relaxed and informal which is exactly what we wanted and was just right…we didn’t want to leave our guests for a long period of time for the photos and we didn’t have to. Nor did we want the ‘firing squad’ line up type of photos. Guy took masses of photos but very few of them were posed. They were all amazing but particularly those of the children which were so natural and at times very funny! We loved looking back at them after the wedding and the photos have been much admired by everyone we have showed them to. We would definitely recommend taking up the option of having the photo book done as well. Guy was a great choice for our wedding photographer and we’d recommend him highly.
By Claire & Colin – Wedding Reception at Le Pont de la Tour, London:
Guy is an amazing photographer and not only takes amazing photo’s, but manages to capture the essence of your wedding day perfectly. Guy is very easy to work with and takes in to account the photo’s that you want. The natural photo’s that are taken are really beautiful. We had a small wedding and Guy was just in the background taking photos, most of the time you did not even know he was there, which means that you are not constantly looking for the camera. As part of the package we received a slide show to music, an album and a disk with so many photos. The photos were all incredible and the service was so quick. I cannot recommend Guy enough, he really has given us some amazing memories that we can look at time and time again.
By Elizabeth & Paul – Got Married at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park:
We wanted a photographer who would truly capture our wedding day and Guy’s documentary style photography did so perfectly. Guy listened to our requests and blended them in naturally as the day unfolded. His friendly personality immediately puts you at ease which on your wedding day is paramount to how the day is going to flow and I was grateful for this! Guy has a talent for subtly directing people when needed or blending into the background to capture those incredibly good natural shots. Our guests remarked on how relaxed they felt and the children especially liked Guy who was fun and possesses a skill that brings out the best in them; the photographs reflect their personalities brilliantly! The whole experience from start to finish was exceptional. We felt in control, relaxed, supported and very pleased to have such a friendly and professional photographer who had the hardest task of the day. We recommend Guy highly.
By Anna & Dan – Wedding in Kingston-upon-Thames:
Thank you Guy for the most wonderful pictures and service! The whole experience was so easy from start to finish. Guy worked so hard on the day to capture beautiful pictures that captured the day wonderfully. We decided to get the photo album made by Guy and we are so glad we did, the finish is beautiful, it is such a professionally presented album that is a lovely keepsake. We would very highly recommend Guy to anyone and are looking forward to working with him again!
By Simon & Walter – Civil Partnership in Camden Town:
We live abroad but were having a civil partnership ceremony in London, so we had to play it all a bit by ear, organising everything online and not being able to meet anyone – from caterer to reception venue, Town Hall, and photographer of course – until notlong before the big day. After looking at various photographers’ work on the internet we decided that we really liked the look of Guy’s style of photography. We contacted him and kept in touch by email and on the phone, and at his suggestion met up a month or so before the ceremony so that we could discuss the kind of things we wanted/didn’t want, and Guy couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the whole process. On the day itself everyone commented how friendly he was, and patient too, on what turned out to be a scorching hot day to say the least! Just a week after the ceremony we already had a slideshow and a quite a few photos. We also ordered the photo book and we stayed in touch to sort out the photos that were to go in it and how it should look, again Guy couldn’t have been more helpful: the end result is we now have a fantastic set of colour and black and white photos, a photo book and a slideshow to remind us of what a great day it was. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Thanks Guy, we really appreciate all the hard work you put in!
By Nipa & James – Wedding at the Turkey Mill, Maidstone:
Thanks to Guy for being such a fantastic photographer for our wedding at Turkey Mill, Maidstone. We had stumbled across his work online, and loved the artistry and beauty of the photos. Through his unobtrusive and natural style, Guy really managed to capture the emotion of the day and the quality of the work was really first class. We couldn’t have been happier with the final product and would definitely recommend Guy to couples looking for a wedding photographer.
By Mark & Damion – Civil Ceremony Photography on the London Eye:
Thoroughly pleased with everything from start to finish and would recommend Guy for anyone looking for a wedding or civilpartnership photographer or indeed any other photography needs. Guy was completely flexible with our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. Throughout the day Guy was able to take pictures unobtrusively and was warm and welcoming to all of the guests. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful and helpful person he was. We were very pleased with the pictures that were taken and with the overall service provided. The wedding album and thank you cards that we ordered were superb and we were given plenty of opportunities to make any amendments that we wanted. A huge thank you to Guy for everything before, during and after the wedding, we are still loving looking at all the pictures which bring back fantastic memories of the day. Everyone that we have shown the pictures to absolutely loves them as well. Guy comes highly recommended by us.
By Heather & Adam – Marriage at Marylebone Old Town Hall, London:
We would not hesitate in recommending Guy Milnes Photography. His style of photography totally suited us and our wedding party – none of whom like ‘posing’ for photos! Guy blended in so well with our group, most of the time we were unaware he was with us! However – it was clear when we received the photographs, that he was everywhere he needed to be, perfectly capturing every part of such an amazing day. Thank you Guy!
By Gary & David – Civil Partnership in Trafalgar Square, London:
Guy provided us with exceptional service from beginning to end. He was always very quick to respond to queries, he always made us feel very relaxed and confident and he was a pleasure to work with. On the day everything was seamless and he seemed to just melt into the background and as a result got some amazing shots. He took the brief and delivered exactly what we asked. We had to wait to secure his services and hold our nerve as he had another provisional booking on our big day – we are so delighted that we won out and managed to get Guy. Cannot recommend him and his services highly enough. Thanks Guy!
By Josie & Stephen – Wedding at Wandsworth Town Hall, London:
We used Guy for our wedding earlier this year. We are absolutely delighted with the photos he took, and were very impressed with every aspect of his service. He’s a really lovely person to work with, very friendly and professional. He wasn’t even put off when we told him we didn’t like having our photos taken, which is testimony to his endless patience and positivity. On the day he worked so hard, yet at the same time (in the nicest possible way!) we forgot he was there – which means we have amazing photos of ourselves and our guests that bring back all the emotions of the day, as he captured the feelings so well. Our guests all commented how lovely Guy was, and we do not hesitate in recommending Guy to anyone looking for outstanding photos for their special events.
By Luisa and Adrian – Wedding Photography at St Brides Church, London:
I did a lot of research for our wedding photographer, and we found Guy he ticked all the boxes, and luckily he was free on our requested date! We hadlots of good chats before the wedding so we felt very comfortable that he knew what we wanted. We weren’t disappointed, he was brilliant on the day, and captured everything we asked him to. When we returned from honeymoon later there was a DVD slide show to music waiting for us, so nice to come back to! I’d heard from friends that they had waited quite a while for photos of their weddings from various photographers, so it was so nice to be able to see them so quickly! We met with Guy a couple of times after to go through the photo book and the whole process was very smooth and quick! We’re very happy with our pictures, and extra copies of the book made great presents for family. We thoroughly recommend Guy as a photographer, we have a baby on the way now and will definitely be asking Guy to do baby’s first photos!
By Heather Leveton – Family Photo Shoot in Clapham, London:
We first used Guy to photograph my parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary lunch for family and friends and were delighted with his work. Professional, courteous and unobtrusive he truly captured the spirit of the event in his beautifully informal, candid style. Indeed we were so delighted with the pictures that we have used him since to photograph our children and will continue to use him as our family photographer in the future. Professional, polite and most all a great photographer for those wishing to avoid the over-posed pictures of the past, I cannot recommend him strongly enough.
By Krystal and Barrie – Engagement Shoot in Central London:
I am from the states and my fiancé is a Brit, so I wanted some London themed engagement photos on location with some landmarks in the background. Guy responded to our e-mails promptly, answered any questions we had, and was very professional the day we took photos with him out on the town in London. He had lots of ideas and took his time in capturing the perfect shot and we are over the moon with how our pictures turned out! The end result of his photos along with his different editing techniques were outstanding and we couldn’t be happier with his work. My fiancé and I would definitely recommend Guy to anyone who wanted a great photographer! Thank you for providing us amazing photos for our wedding day!
By May Lloyd – Wedding in South London:
My husband and I used Guy Milnes Photography for our wedding earlier this year. We really couldn’t fault his service from start to finish. Guy was receptive to our wishes and gave sound advice and suggestions both at our initial meetings and on the wedding day itself. On the day he was really flexible and efficient. He worked hard and produced so many fantastic photos which we and our families will always cherish. He organised for us to have a CD and photo books which are presented beautifully. He produced a range of photos including group, portrait and reportage photos. Guests commented on how friendly he was without disrupting the natural flow of the day. We would (and have!) recommend Guy to our friends. Thank you! May and William (!)
By Danielle & James – Wedding at the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA), London:
We were really pleased with the service Guy provided, we met with a few photographers before deciding to go ahead with Guy. He seemed very experienced in the type of photo’s we wanted (not your usual ‘posed’ shots)and we found his manner very relaxed on the day and not at all intrusive. The end result was a beautiful hard backed coffee table book which everyone admires. Saves having to go through all the photo’s and make your own wedding album!
By Ivan & Fernando – Civil Partnership at Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall, London:
Having planned a very informal ceremony and day of celebration with close friends, we wanted a photographer who would capture that sense of spontaneity and relaxed atmosphere. Guy was brilliantly professional, from our initial meeting to discuss ideas, requirements and styles, to his low-key yet active presence on site, all of which has delivered some fantastic group and portrait shots that really encapsulate our day. We’d certainly recommend Guy again to anyone looking for a friendly, professional and contemporary photographer.
By Paul & Mike – Civil Ceremony at Tower Bridge, London:
Our civil partnership photos by Guy Milnes Photography were fantastic and everything we ever wished for. Guy’s presence on the day was unnoticeable, he blended in and captured the essence and action from the whole event. We put our full trust in him and he has given us our special day in print to remember and treasure forever. We wholeheartedly recommend anybody that would like the magical moments captured from their special day to use Guy Milnes.
By Prue & Chris – Married at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London:
We wanted a relaxed yet professional photographer for our wedding day and that’s exactly what we found in Guy. Our photos are beautiful (especially the reportage ones) and exactly what we wanted. Guy was a pleasure to deal with before, on and after our special day.
By Karen & Steve Roche – Wedding at Kensington & Chelsea Town Hall, London:
We couldn’t have wanted for a better photographer for our wedding. I love his style of photography and the good blend of colour and black and white shots, but he also has an amazing ability to capture people looking natural. What ever moment you want to capture get Guy to snap away.
By Katy – Baby Photography in South London:
I will definitely be recommending Guy to all my friends. He took some family photographs and they all looked great. Brilliant photographer with excellent results.
By Jo Hopkins – Head Shots Photography in Dulwich:
Guy has given me some great pictures to use for publicity shots – not only do I look human, but he’s made me look pretty good.!
By Jo Lewis – Artwork Photo Shoot in Dulwich, London:
Guy came to the rescue at 24 hours notice. I needed him to photograph my artwork before installation. He did a beautiful job, was great to work with and very professional. Will definitely use again.
By Ed Seward – Family Photography Shoot:
We asked Guy to take photos for my Dad’s 70th having been impressed by what we saw and read on his website. We were not disappointed – Guy is a very unobtrusive photographer who excels at taking spontaneous ‘natural’ photos. We were enormously impressed and I will be strongly recommending him in the future.
By Matthew and Jacqueline Robbins – Wedding in Ireland:
Amazing!!! The more we look at them the more we love them, and we were very impressed from the beginning so that’s saying a lot! You made our day so special, such a patient and pleasant photographer, great personality – just put everyone at ease. Thanks for working non stop and giving us such a great selection of memories. We are so happy. Matthew and Jacqueline Robbins.
