In photographing weddings for years now, I have had the great pleasure in meeting many lovely people along the way and I’m entirely grateful for their kind words and thanks for the service I have provided.
Here is a small selection of testimonials from just a few of those lovely couples over the years.
“My husband and I met Marc at a wedding fair, he was very friendly and his work looked amazing. When we decided to plan our wedding 16 months later Marc immediately came to mind and no other photographer compared.
Marc was very friendly and professional from the beginning and maintained good communication throughout the whole process. By building a rapport with us and getting an idea of what photos were important to us to capture on the day Marc was able to make the photography session on the actual wedding day effortless and run with ease.
You only get one chance to capture your special day. Marc provided an exceptional service from beginning to end and we couldn’t be happier with the end product. We would highly recommend Marc as you will not be disappointed.
Thank You Marc xx”
“Just to say a HUGE thank you and testimonial to Marc for his excellent photography on our wedding day at Newland Manor, Chalfont St Giles.
Marc you were amazingly professional and calm from start to finish and we cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done- including our engagement photo shoot.
Your professionalism and patience on the day was impeccable , especially when trying to round up all the Chance/Johnson clan.
Thank you for making our day so extra special!!!
“We just want to say a massive thank you to Marc for his fantastic photography on our wedding day at The Orangery Maidstone.
Marc has been amazing from the start when we had a complimentary engagement shoot.
Marc was great and comfortable to work with while having our pictures taken, and when we saw his photography from our day knew he would be amazing on our wedding day!
Marc captured every moment of our day and we have amazing photos that we can look back on.
Thanks again Marc!”
“Marc Godfree’s photography is brilliant!
He really captured our big day brilliantly and picked up all those big special moments and even moments we didn’t see happen which we thought was amazing.
Marc is such a lovely man himself and very easy to talk to and approachable. We can’t thank him enough for what he has done for us as now we will be able to remember all our memories every day of our life
“My Husband and I met Marc at a Wedding Fair, to which straight away the quality of his photos was noticeable. We had spoken to many photographers whilst planning our big day, to which all seemed to get confusing as to what they would offer and the small print as to what they would not! When we both met Marc, straight away we knew his work was a cut above the rest, with his packages being very clear and having nothing to hide.
Marc made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and was lovely to spend time with making our day so special catering for all of our needs. He offered a pre wedding session to give us a feel for what we would be doing on the day and to ensure the day went smooth and effortless. He was a massive help through the whole process and after the continued level of customer service is unlike anyone else. We have recommended Marc to anyone we see getting married and continue to boast about his work every time we share our amazing wedding album with people.
We couldn’t have chosen anybody better to make our memories look so beautiful and capture exactly what we wanted from our day.
Cannot thank you enough!”
Re Hanna and Stephens wedding at Brands Hatch Thistle in May, can I just say a few words please?
I am a great believer in the saying, “give credit where credit is due”. With that in mind, I was watching you work at the wedding and it immediately was very obvious to me that you are a true professional. You had a list of pictures that were required by the happy couple and you just got on, no fuss, and took every picture, plus many more, and at all times you were communicating with all concerned and everybody knew what was happening at all times. It was a pleasure for me to work with you and everybody agreed that the day was perfection.
I look forward to working with you again sooner rather than later.
“I cannot stress enough what a fantastic experience having you as our photographer was. You put us at ease from the beginning and gave us a really personal approach which was exactly what we wanted.
The photos are beautiful and the only problem is narrowing them down for the album!
Thank You so much for everything, we will be sure to be in touch should we ever need a photographer again.
“Marc has been fantastic since day one of meeting him! And his photos are just as brilliant.
He made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera on our engagement shoot, and I think that shows in our gorgeous photos.
The pictures Marc got from our wedding day are beautiful, he captured some lovely memories for us and we couldn’t ask for better. The candid shots he got are perfect, and most of the day we didn’t even know he was there!
A lovely man and a brilliant photographer! We can’t wait to see our album, and show it to our friends and family.
Worth every penny! “
“The photography was something we were both worried about in the planning for our big day. Neither of us could be described as the ‘poser type’ so we wanted to find someone who we could relax with and help make the day fun!
Marc put us at ease from the very beginning. We had two shoots prior to the wedding – both of which were included in the package. These sessions helped us and Marc to find the type of shots that we wanted and made us feel so much more comfortable on our wedding day.
On the day, Marc was brilliant. He was really flexible and accommodating in terms of making the most of how things worked out on the day. This really helped us to relax and enjoy the day without feeling we were always on a timetable.
Our guests were also really impressed with him – many of them have commented since the day on how friendly and professional he was.
And then of course there were the pictures of the big day itself which were just stunning.
The perfect mixture of more formal photos and photos captured ‘in the moment’. Just as an example he captured an incredible photo of one of our little flower girls glancing down at a rose she was carrying. The moment must have lasted only a second but Marc captured it perfectly. The album has been doing the rounds over Chirstmas with a lot of admiration!
Thank you so much Marc for everything.”
“We first met Marc at the Bluewater wedding fair, he was friendly and we were really impressed with his photos and photos on display.
We had a free photo session which we really enjoyed Marc made us feel instantly comfortable and listened to our wishes. From the session we knew we made the right decision.
Marc has been in constant contact ensuring we are well and helping us organise timings to ensure we have enough time with him to get the photos we want.
We also had a pre-wedding photo shoot which was brilliant as not only did it help us choose a lovely photo for our signing board it has also helped remind us of what to expect on our day and help us not feel so nervous or look so awkward in photos.
I would definitely recommend Marc and I am very glad we have him to capture our special day.
“We first met Marc at Bluewater wedding fair in October, Marc was one of many photographers there however was the only one who seemed to ‘get’ us and understand exactly what we were after from our photographer on the day and offered the traditional style album we wanted.
Marc was friendly and approachable from the first contact; we loved the idea of the free (even better!) photo experience as that really allowed us to get to know Marc and his style of work outside of the wedding fair.
On the day we were both nervous and unsure how things would go but were quickly made to feel relaxed and enjoyed the whole experience.
We left this shoot knowing we would love for Marc to be our photographer on the most special day of our life.
The photos from this day were fantastic and the moment we saw them we secured our deposit.
We are looking forward to the pre-wedding session and deciding which photo to have as our signing board! We feel very lucky to have a great, down to earth, friendly photographer and have no doubts we have chosen the best! ”
What can we say? – you were a true professional from start to finish.
Your attention to detail and meticulous planning ensured that you floated around almost unnoticed while still managing to capture some of the most amazing, intimate and subtle moments throughout the day.
We cannot thank you enough for your patience, consideration, time and dedication.
All the best, ”
“Over the past week we have enjoyed spending a part of each day looking at the beautiful photos, and in turn reliving our special day all over again. Words couldn’t explain how thankful we are to you for capturing our wedding day, providing us with these memories which will last us a lifetime.
Our only problem now is choosing the photos for the album!”
Firstly we would like to congratulate you on doing such a spectacular job on our wedding photography, it captured many favourite memorable moments of our fantastic day with stunning photo’s, we love them thank you.
Right from the start to the end you were very organised which helped to keep us and everything focused which helped tremendously, along with you being so attentive by checking on us to see if we need any help which was so nice.
We look forward to doing more business with you in the near future; keep up the good work Marc and once again a big thank you.
“We found choosing our wedding photographer really difficult at first as many photographers offer so many different packages at different prices and it became so confusing and overwhelming.
We chose Marc as the packages he offers are clear and straight forward and it saved all the confusion.
Like most people we were scared about choosing our wedding photographer, having seen loads at wedding fares all being overly pushy and expensive. Marc changed that, No hard sell, just polite and honest.
He had won us over before seeing his work. Everything from the pre-shoots to planning the specific pictures and timings to the actual day went without a hitch, We can’t recommend Marc enough! ”
“We found choosing our wedding photographer really difficult at first as many photographers offer so many different packages at different prices and it became so confusing and overwhelming. We chose Marc as the packages he offers are clear and straightforward and it saved all the confusion.
Marc was really helpful from the beginning and the pre wedding photo shoot gave us the opportunity to become comfortable with the camera and to also to tell Marc what we did/didn’t want. We had so many questions (some of which we thought were really silly) but Marc’s approachable attitude allowed us to ask what we needed to and he was always on hand to give us advice and suggestions.
Things didn’t go quite according to plan for the bride and bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding (due to the bride being ill!) but Marc was great and remained calm and reassuring amidst the chaos
We loved our photo’s and choosing which ones we wanted for our album was quite a task as they were all so lovely! We chose the storybook album and are so pleased with it!
It’s for all these reasons that we would definitely recommend Marc for your wedding photos.”
“Thank you so much for all your help before and especially during our wedding Day. You truly were fantastic and we both felt completely at ease and had every confidence you would capture those truly remarkable pictures. Thank you also for taking us from the church, then to visit my dad before dropping off at the cottage (also a special thank you for the bottle of coke).
Thank you once again, our Wedding Day would not have been the same without you (as I in particular would have been stressing) xxx”
“I met Marc back in March when I was drawn to his unique style of photography at The Mulberry House wedding show!
After discussing his unique style it instantly stood out for me and I couldn’t wait to show my finance’ his work when I got home. As soon as Neal saw his pictures he loved what he saw and from that moment we contacted Marc to arrange to meet up to discuss our wedding day.
Before our pre-wedding shoot, Neal was very anxious and was not terribly keen on having his picture taken! He was a nightmare to be honest but I persevered!
As soon as Neal met Marc he was at ease. Marc was so helpful and excellent at explaining what we needed to do! To begin with both Neal and I felt uneasy about having our pictures taken in the middle of Hylands Park, however Marc was so kind and easy going that it made us at ease!
By the end Neal and I were in our element and absolutely loved it.
That day I fell in Love with Neal all over again, it was amazing! Marc completely knows what he is doing and is fantastic at creating those ever lasting memories whilst it being effortless!
By the end of the shoot Neal felt so at ease and was actually looking forward to having our pictures taken for our wedding, which I thought would never happen!
Thank you Marc for making our pre-wedding shoot so special and I can’t wait to see the pictures after our wedding day.
Fondest Regards “
“My wife and I having never had professional photographs taken of ourselves before, found ourselves in the need of a photographer for our wedding day.
Like many couples before us, we attended wedding fairs in the hope of booking as many of the unorganised elements of our wedding as possible and getting some new ideas, a photographer was first on our list.
Marc had a stall at the opening of the wedding fair at Bluewater and immediately caught our eye, due to the table display and sample albums. Marc was very friendly and helpful and his albums were very well presented. We didn’t want to make a decision on our first photography stall and so set off to view alternatives to create a comparison.
Although there were many nice companies there, we didn’t feel as comfortable and right for us as Marc’s company did. Returning to the stall we asked more questions and having noticed a special offer for a free guest signing board if we signed up for a test shoot today; we quickly did. The shoot required a deposit of just £10 to be returned on the day once we met. The test shoot is a very good idea to enable you to get familiar with the photographer and see if your personalities match; very important for the big day!
We agreed on a choice of venues and Marc made us feel very relaxed and guided us through a range of poses, capturing our relationship very well.
We sat down afterwards and had a coffee when Marc showed us some unedited snaps just taken so we had an immediate impression. We loved them and signed up then and there as we didn’t want to lose our date and opportunity to work with Marc.
We meet one more time before our wedding for our pre wedding shoot. This photography session was again very important, as Marc guided us through all of the different types of postures and positions to ensure our wedding photos turned out exactly how we wanted them to. Marc very kindly travelled to our reception venue to get some ideas for the day; this was important to us as we were nervous about the big day and helped reassure us.
Marc helped us organise the timings of our wedding day and which family or friends should be included in the photos, creating an effortless flow to the whole day.
Marc did a fantastic job capturing the moments of my wife getting ready for the wedding and rearranged furniture to create the best background for the photos, and put everything back again afterwards!
He then met me at the Church and we took some more photos. Being so comfortable with Marc was important at this time due to the stress of the day.
The day went seamlessly and we transitioned between shots with minimal effect and Marc organising people when needed. He travelled ahead of the party to the reception to capture us arriving which was terrific.
At any point in time we were never conscious of Marc taking action shots throughout the day which made it feel very natural.
We were always able to view the photos on Marc’s secure website and they looked amazing. He travelled over to show us them in a polished slideshow and then left us with the difficult choice of picking the photos for the album.
When we needed an opinion Marc provided it and again when we were stuck choosing the leather for the album, he sent us some samples to help.
Marc produces a very polished and impressive product in a friendly, relaxing and professional manner. He is experienced and obviously talented which combine for a stress free wedding day and a lifetime of memories captured in a beautiful package.”
