We really appreciate the feedback we get from you – it means so much to us to produce wedding photographs that you love and to provide the best service we can on your special day. Please see below for some of the comments we’ve received from previous clients.


We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wonderful wedding photographs and album. We love them! You captured our day perfectly, from start to finish, and we are so happy that we have such beautiful photographs to remember our day by. Thank you for capturing so many photographs of our guests, as well as of us. Many of our friends and family commented on how friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive you were, and this really showed in our photographs, which reflected the fun and happiness of the day. Even our videographer commented that you were the most friendly and professional photographers he had worked alongside.

We also wanted to thank you for your professionalism. From planning our engagement shoot through to designing our wedding album and arranging its delivery, you always replied to emails quickly and had all of our photographs ready on time. Your advice on timings for the wedding day in relation to the photographs was very much appreciated.

Thank you for being a part of our wedding day. We couldn’t have picked anyone nicer or more talented to photograph it.

Chris and Nikki xx


Thank you! We couldn’t be happier with the stunning photos you captured of our wedding. The day itself was such a blur, so we are delighted to have such a beautiful lasting memories of it all; we will treasure them forever.

From the first meeting to our first dance you acted with the utmost professionalism. It is testament to your relaxed style that we barely noticed you during the day, and this is proven by the incredibly natural shots that you took of us and our guests. We would recommend you to other couples without a moment’s hesitation.

Thank you once again and we wish you and Alison the best of luck for the future.

All the best,

David & Heather

Thanks again for such incredible photo’s, we are still getting comments about them from people, both those who were there and those who weren’t, I really can’t express how incredible we think they are (not that we ever doubted you would produce such things, but because we didn’t really know what to expect!) They have just captured the day so well, and when I look at them they just remind me of everything little part of it – even the bits I don’t really remember happening because it went by too fast! I’m especially pleased with the ones of the kids, even when Adam was screaming in the photo of Nic and I with the 3 boys, it’s just so them at the moment, and the one of Maisie outside the marquee with the windmills is another which has had so many comments!

I don’t think Nic and I will ever be able to express our gratitude for you managing to capture the event, especially with the unconventional nature of it, and the ease of process through the whole event from the first time we met in Newcastle! I’m not a big photo lover, but you made it all so easy and painless and worked so well with all the guests throughout the day! I’m not sure if we passed it on, but there were lots of very nice comments about you from the guests, mostly around how much you fitted in and just went with it and looked like you were enjoying it!

Ann & Nic

This is just a little note to say thank you so much for all you did with photographing our wedding. We are so pleased with our photographs, but perhaps more importantly, from the engagement shoot through to the wedding, the whole experience with you was fun, friendly and relaxed. We now have amazing pictures to go with our memories of our special day. Thank you so much for capturing these!

Emma & Dave

Thank you for our incredible wedding photos. We are so pleased with them. You did such an amazing job.

The whole experience with you both was so friendly and relaxed. From the first meeting to throughout the wedding day!

The day was such a blur and we barely even noticed you taking our photo. But you have captured the day so well.

Again, thank you for everything you’ve done.

Love Laura & Ian

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for photographing our wedding. We had an amazing time and your photographs have captured it perfectly.

We were impressed with your professionalism and the unobtrusive way in which you captured our guests enjoying themselves.

We love all the photos they are fab and will find it hard to select some for an album as they are all lovely.

We would be very happy to recommend you to other couples.

Thanks again,

Nicola and Paul

We’d both like to say a massive thank you for our beautiful photos. We are so pleased with them and they are better than we could ever have wished for.

It was an absolutely pleasure dealing with you both before and on our special day and all our guests commented on how lovely you are.

Thankyou for being part of our day and capturing our memories so perfectly in photos, we will treasure them forever.

We wish you all the very best in the future.

Many thanks & kindest regards,

Carole & Nigel Billau

Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding photos and album.

We couldn’t have asked for better from you both. From the initial meeting to receiving the album you were the friendliest, most helpful and professional team we could have asked for. Your help on the day was invaluable, from dodging the rain showers to get the perfect photos to wrangling our many guests into the right place and formation!

Thank you again for being with us on our day and for capturing it so beautifully,

Ruth & David

From our very first meeting at your home, we knew that we wanted to book you for our wedding and we were so pleased we did. At our pre-wedding shoot we got to know you a little better and felt confident that your photographic style was perfect for us.

Even though it rained on our wedding day, you used every opportunity to capture each moment, and the photographs looked amazing. The colours were so vibrant and some of our friends couldn’t believe that it had rained at all!

It was so hard picking photos for the album because there were so many good ones to choose from! I keep looking through them to relive the day.

Thank you for helping to make our wedding so memorable, we will certainly recommend you to family and friends.

Best wishes,

Diane and Stewart x

We both would like to thank you so much for the wedding photos and albums! We absolutely love them!

As a person who does not like their photo taken- you made me feel at ease from the very beginning at the pre-wedding photo shoot till the end of our wedding day!! So I thank you for that!

Our family commented on how sociable you were on the day and think both; the photos and their mini-parent books are fantastic!

We would recommend you to anyone, especially to those who prefer a more relaxed environment for having their photo taken. Some of our favourite photos are of those where people don’t know that they have been taken! Amazing!

Thank you again

You have provided us with lots of special memories.

We hope you continue to make memories for many more couples.

Kerry and Mark xx

Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. The photos and album are amazing and reflect the day perfectly.

We were really impressed with the professional service from meeting you at your home to receiving our photos. We had total confidence in you throughout and you made it all so easy. You made us both feel so relaxed on the wedding day and never imposed on us or our guests but still managed to get the most brilliant shots.

We have the most fantastic memories of our big day to treasure forever and that is thanks to you.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

Best Regards

Laura & Mark Lilley

We would like to say a massive thank you to Simon and Alison for all the work they’ve done for us. They are talented, professional and hard working photographers. They were always punctual and everything was done when promised. Our photos are perfect and the photo album is excellent quality! Now the wedding is over, our photos are an invaluable reminder of our perfect day. We couldn’t have been happier with them!


Denis & Maria

We received our finished wedding album yesterday and absolutely love it! You have captured the atmosphere of the day so well, and the photographs are all stunning.

From our first meeting with you, we knew we wanted you to do our pictures, as you were so friendly and relaxed. As we both hate posing for photo’s, your approach of the more natural shots made it really fun. Our family and friends all commented on both your attitude on the wedding day and the finished products. We would definitely reccommend you to a friend.

Thanks so much for all your hard work!

Ruth and Chris xx

THANK YOU!! We absolutely love our pictures. We wanted lots of natural pictures and you made us feel so comfortable and at ease.

Even though it rained all day you had lots of ideas for getting great shots. We knew from our first meeting that everything would be great and stress free.

Simon and Carole Paz-Uceira

From meeting you at the wedding fayre we knew we’d made the right choice because we were looking for someone who had a relaxed manner and made us feel at ease. We liked the selection of albums you had and the mix of formal and informal photos looked great. You kept in touch leading up to the wedding and were enthusiastic about the day.

On the day itself, you worked hard to capture the spirit of the event without being intrusive..Simon, you were also the first person to let me know that all was fine from the bride camp, which helped me relax prior to the ceremony.

On receiving the photos we were thrilled at how well they had turned out and the bonus DVD of the steel band was a perfect addition. There were even a few tears when we watched it!

We had the best day and once again would like to thank you for all your hard work. We’d highly recommend you to other couples.

All the best

Graham and Becky

WOW!!! Thank you both so much for our wonderful photographs, they are absolutely superb and we love them. From the minute we met you both everything has been brilliant and so re-assuring, we could not have asked for any more. You are both ultimate professionals and thank you for contributing massively in the greatest day of our lives.

Thank you for everything and quite simply Simon Hudspeth Photography is the best around, no doubt about that!!! Anyone reading this testimonial, my advice would be BOOK NOW!!

Love Keith and Dawn Douglas xx

Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding photos, they captured the day perfectly and bring back a lot of fantastic memories.

You were so friendly and easy to work with, we were instantly put at ease and were able to enjoy our day knowing that you had everything under control!

Emma & Ed

Simon and Ali

Thank you so much for our amazing wedding album and pictures! You are both very talented and also such lovely people.

We knew from meeting you at the wedding fayre that we wanted you as our photographers, you had fantastic albums to show us. We especially liked how you captured not only posed photos, but the more natural ones where people were unaware, they truly captured the magic of the day!

You have been contactable and approachable from the beginning, you fit in easily with all of our guests on the day, many commented on how lovely you both were, and afterwards how brilliant the photos were.

We would definitely recommend you and wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch should we want any photos taken in future!

All the best

Lynn and Chris Eley

Thank you so much for the photos, we’ve been so excited about seeing them and we were not disappointed, we absolutely LOVE them! I’ve spent the majority of my day (whilst meant to be working!) looking through them again and again and they are just perfect and such a lovely momento of our special day. Thank you!

Thanks again – its been a pleasure meeting you and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends!

With very best wishes

Sarah & Garth x

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you have done over the past few months in helping to make our day so special. It has been great working with you and also really lovely to get to know you.

We wish you all the luck in the world with the business, you are brilliant at what you do and we hope you go from strength to strength. We will be sure to get in touch if we need a photographer in the future!

We are so happy with our photos and album.

We are glad that we chose you for our big day and that you captured some brilliant memories that we can treasure. We would recommend you to anyone.

You made us and our guests feel so relaxed and everyone commented on how nice you were.

Thank you again.

Gemma and Rich

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE Thank You to Simon & Ali for our lovely wedding photographs.. From the first day we met you, to the big day – you were more like friends to us, which was lovely!

On the wedding day, we didn’t feel like we had a stranger around and alot of the pictures I cant remember being taken – as you just did what you had to do and the natural shots certainly make the best pictures…

To anyone thinking to book, do it!! You wont be disappointed with any part of the process and the pictures are just perfect..

Love, Sarah & Steven x x

Thank you so so much for being so perfect on our special day, and for the beautiful photos that have come out of it!

Thank you also for the beautiful picture & frame, which now has pride of place on the stairs, so we are reminded very often of our perfect day!

With lots of love,

Katie & Craig xx

Thank you for our beautiful photographs and for being so wonderful on our wedding day.

By being so relaxed and friendly on our day, it made the day so enjoyable. We didn’t feel as though we were away from our guests for long – it was just lovely. We have recommended you to everyone we know who’s getting married and wish you the best of luck for the future!

Rick & Kathryn Clarke

Thank you so much for photographing our Wedding Day. You captured every moment beautifully and we both love looking through the photos as we decide what to include in our album. You are a lovely couple who work so well together, Jonathan and I enjoyed your company on the day and on the run up to the wedding. We want to thank you for travelling so far to meet with us (to Lancaster and Workington!) and for putting us as ease straight away! You are both naturals at what you do! We have recommended you to absolutely everyone, you did a wonderful job and we are thrilled with the results. We are trying to come up with another occasion so that we can have you there for the photos!

All the very best for the future and once again, thank you so very much for everything you did for us!

Gabrielle and Jonathan xx

Just a little card to say a big thank you! We absolutely love the wedding photos of our big day. We had the most fantastic day and you managed to capture it all perfectly, so thank you very much.

Love the new Mr & Mrs Turnbull xxx

Thank you so much for the photos, we’re absolutely thrilled with them. You have captured the day perfectly and provided us with so many fabulous pictures I don’t know how we’ll cut them down into just one album – certainly a good dilemma to have!

You were fantastic during the day and we’ll be sure to recommend you to all of our friends and family.

Thanks again,

Gemma & Edward

Thank you so so much for the absolutely fantastic job you did with our wedding pictures. Each picture is beautifully done & really captures the story of the day – which I absolutely love! I’ve been showing them to everyone & they all love them too!

I am incredibly happy to recommend you to everyone as your work is fantastic!

With huge thanks,

Jenna & James

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful photographs you’ve put on your website and the lovely words you wrote on your blog. We had such an amazing day and you really helped make it go so smoothly. I had no idea about Stevens Dad de-heading his button hole and can’t thank you enough for sorting them all out when they were panicking! The photos are just gorgeous and we are really looking forward to the CDs arriving! Thank you again for all your hard work, both on the day and since.

Liz and Steven

I had an agonising wait until 10pm to see these, as Adrian was at cricket! But we’ve been sat looking at them over and over, we absolutely love them! Thank you so much, they’ve got the exact feel of the day down to a tee.

Thanks so much to both of you for the gorgeous pictures and great service. I’ll recommend you to anyone! We’re so happy that we had such nice people and the pictures we wanted for our wedding day

All the best,

Nicola and Adrian

Want to tell you how pleased we are with our wedding photos, they are simply brilliant. The quality is so fantastic and we love every single one of them. You were both such a pleasure to have as our photographers, you were just so lovely, professional and friendly right from the start. You truly captured the best day of our lives and you were almost unnoticeable so it is amazing you did that. All of our guests commented on how lovely you were and are now united in their praise for the photos. Thank you for capturing the happiness that we felt and the fantastic service you provided. Superb! Thank you again and hope to see you again soon

Debbie and Darren

I just wanted to thank you again for all of your efforts on our wedding day. The photographs are amazing and are a great reminder of such a special day for us. Those friends and relatives that have had the pleasure of seeing them so far have all commented on how good they are (and look!!). I would like to thank you for your relaxed but very professional approach. Thanks again and all the best for the future.

Helen & Gavin

Thank you once again for making our big day so special

Nicola & Mark

Firstly thank you so much for getting the photos done so quickly. I’ve been so excited to see them.

I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we are with them. I love every single photo and choosing the ones for the album will be so difficult. You were absolutely brilliant on the day and have really captured everything perfectly.

Thank you again for everything.

Claire & Steve

Hey guys, just to let you know we got the photos through this morning. They are absolutely fantastic……. we were completely blown away by their fantastic quality, how many people you managed to snap and the mood that you captured so well.

Susannah & David

We’ve had a look at the photos 6 times already. As Churchill once said in one of his famous speeches – Oh Yes! Fantastic photos, many thanks.

Julie & Stephen

Just a note to say thank you for the amazing job you did of photographing our wedding. Your friendly, easy going manner put our nerves at rest and helped us enjoy our special day. We won’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family. We are really pleased with the photos and want to pass on our thanks for the excellent job you did.

Joanne & Nicholas

I am writing to thank you for the work you did for Becky and Graham’s wedding at Dissington Hall on 7th August.

As soon as you arrived at our house on the morning of the wedding we were delighted with the way you were obviously going to work on our big day.

Your relaxed and intuitive approach was greatly appreciated and your professionalism was of the highest quality.

We fully expected to receive some excellent pictures. Once the portfolio was available on your website the work you had done was even better than we anticipated! It’s an absolutely stunning collection and has provided us with a magical reminder of the brilliant day we had.

It was also a lovely and unexpected touch to receive the DVD of the steel band.

Once again I thank you both so much for your outstanding contribution to Becky and Graham’s day.

Best wishes,

Peter Naylor (bride’s father)

Thank you so much for the beautiful photographs you took on our wedding day – they are perfect! We found you so nice to deal with – quite unassuming yet clearly passionate about what you do (not the case with all photographers we met!). Maybe see you at another wedding soon – we will certainly recommend you.

Caroline & Rob

Just a quick note to say many thanks indeed for the fab job you did at Sophie’s wedding; you struck a great balance between professionalism and friendliness and many people commented to that effect. So, really looking forward to the photographs and, of course, ordering many, many prints! Again, many thanks indeed to you, I will be recommending you at every opportunity

Terry Priestley – Bride’s Father

We have had a look at the gallery, thank you so much the photos are wonderful! We really didn’t notice you taking that many!

We just wanted to thank you for our wedding album, it is absolutely beautiful. It really is stunning, and thank you once again for being so easy to work with on the day, you even made Damian comfortable in front of a camera!

Sophie & Damian

The photos have arrived and are fabulous!! You two are a very talented couple, love them…..everyone thought you were fantastic at our wedding, very professional and worked with everyone really well. I thoroughly enjoyed having our photos taken, even David did too, there’s a first!! I will definitely recommend you to friends and family for any events – I’m sure there’ll be plenty as we have such a large family! Thanks very much for everything!

Clare & David

Thanks for the wedding pics they were gorgeous, I’m really happy with them. Thanks also for being so helpful and accommodating on the day – I know me and Karl could be hard to pin down. All family and friends have commented how lovely the photos are on the website. I would certainly recommend you to anyone else getting married.

Clare & Karl

I must also congratulate you (and Alison) on superb photos, beautifully laid out. Everybody who has seen the photos has been most impressed, including our daughter Harriet, who writes the wedding interviews in the Saturday Times. Many of the photos of Rob and Caroline are absolutely brilliant, and it is a superb record of a wonderful day – one of the happiest weddings we have done here.
