Carolyn took some amazing photos at my 40th birthday party, so happy the wife decided to get her expertise on board rather than a photo-booth. My family aren't big on photos, but having Carolyn mingling all night allowed us to get some wonderful natural shots that have really captured the moment, and some memories that will last a lifetime and more. Thank you Carolyn xx More...

Carolyn is professional and very reasonably priced. The photography she did for my sister's wedding captured the day beautifully and her turn around in getting the photographs finished was very efficient. Definitely 5 stars.

Carolyn Clarke photographed my wedding and was amazing! She is incredibly friendly, so easy to work with and honestly took the best photos that I can look back on with a smile on my face. She knew the best way to position us to make us look good, and took loads of great candid shots throughout the night. Cannot praise her enough for the great job she did x More...

Carolyn's services are fantastic. I've been lucky enough to enjoy her services more than once; for a birthday garden party and also for a family portrait photo shoot. She has a very calm and relaxed attitude which rubs off on everyone to ensure the best results and is also a consummate professional. I couldn't recommend her services highly enough. More...

Carolyn was the photographer for our wedding, and I am thoroughly impressed with the kind of service Carolyn offers. Her style and quality of photography was exactly what we were after. A nice balance of posed and candid photos and really captured the atmosphere of the day. Carolyn is a wonderful person to spend time with, friendly and professional. She won’t take over your day (like so many other wedding photographers I’ve seen) but absolutely helps everything run smoothly. We were both amazed at how much Carolyn went above and beyond. Checking out both the church and hall beforehand, to scope out good shooting locations. Spending time with us before and after the wedding. Her service level is extraordinary, and she really helped make our day that extra bit special.I absolutely recommend her for all your photographer needs. More...

Carolyn did our wedding photos and she was just brilliant. From the moment we met her until the day she hand delivered our beautiful images I was so happy we had chosen her to be one of the most important parts of our wedding. On the day she was great getting everyone in place for pictures but blending into the background during dinner and dancing to capture some natural images that summed up the day. Lovely, bubbly lady who has an eye for a great pic! More...

Carolyn was absolutely a brilliant choice as a photographer for our daughter Lucys wedding to Chris last year.

Carolyn has photographed for us twice now and both times the photos were amazing ....one of the things I love about carolyns photography is the fact that she manages to capture natural shots without anyone realising ....so the unveiling of the photos is always a pleasant surprise ...you don't usually get fabulous photos, that are incredibly affordable and professional but you do with Carolyn!

Carolyn is a quite amazing young lady. Established a fantastic rapport immediately and we all had an absolute ball due to a mix of her superb professionalism and exceedingly warm and friendly personality. She becomes your friend in minutes. The session was for my wife's 50th birthday and to capture a range of pics with her parents to mark the occasion. Clearly Carolyn has a great eye for a magical photo. You really should treat yourself and get this young lady to capture your special day or memento type pics. We will definitely be calling on her again as it was such a wonderful experience. Thank you so much Carolyn More...

Thankyou so much Carolyn Clarke for capturing our day so perfectly. You set our minds at ease after our first meeting and delivered all our expectations. Carolyn was very well organised on the day of our wedding and whilst managing to usher our family and friends into position, also managed to be in the background and capture some great memories. The photographs were delivered on time (with a lovely little surprise....) and were fantastic, bringing back all the emotions of our big day!. We would highly recommend Carolyn and agree your big day will be in safe hands. Phil & Julie Read x More...

We could not be happier with the service and photographs of our wedding from Carolyn. We have previously had family shots by Carolyn and she works amazingly in the studio and out and about for the day of our wedding. She really knows how to capture some special shots. She has always put us at ease and has been so approachable and helpful, all massive benefits when planning a wedding. Carolyn is the ultimate professional and we barely knew she was there at the wedding. The day went so smoothly and Carolyn has been amazing at sorting our shots after too. Cannot recommend Carolyn highly enough, a genuinely lovely person and a real talent for beautiful photography. More...

Carolyn is awesome! I first met her when my mum booked a family photoshoot with her;Carolyn was fun and friendly and as a family who aren't great in front of a camera she made us all feel much more comfortable! So when it came to organising my wedding I had to ask her if she would be the photographer for our big day and I'm so happy we did: Carolyn was great from the first consultation throughout the whole process being responsive to our questions. She stayed with us for the whole day up until the first dance and she captured some amazing moments, all of the pictures are beautiful.
Carolyn is great at what she does and is a lovely friendly person too.
Thanks for being part of our big day �

We had Carolyn as our wedding photographer. We were so pleased with how Carolyn made sure we could get the photos we wanted before the rain came. Carolyn was great and giving us some shots we wasn’t expecting as she discreetly wanders around the day. We are over the moon with our photos and our photo album. Would highly recommend! More...

A friend bought me a cake smash voucher for my nearly 1 year old. I contacted Carolyn & decided we would have some family photos at the same time & she even let us bring the dog! Had such a great time and some amazing images as a result. I thought the price was extremely reasonable compared to some others I had seen and considering the great service it was excellent value for money. Highly recommended x More...

Carolyn was recommended to us by a friend who got married in 2017 and as soon as we met her we knew we would be booking her. Carolyn is super friendly and obviously very knowledgable – she outlined the day for us and made suggestions of the kinds of photos we might like to have.
On the wedding day itself, Carolyn was fab, she was always there snapping away but was very descreet at the same time. For our couple photos, she helped us to feel relaxed and at ease and made us laugh. She guided us through lots of natural photos – she even clambered into the rape seed fields to get some pictures!
So far we have only seen the preview photo that was released onto Facebook and from that alone, we know the rest are going to be briiliant too and we can't wait to see them all.
We would highly recommend Carolyn to our friends and family!

Carolyn is fantastic and we are so pleased we picked her as our wedding photographer. From our first meeting she made us feel at ease. She even helped us plan all of the timings for the day!

On the day she was amazing. As well as the formal photographs she was able to capture so many beautiful natural moments of both us and our guests. Our couples photos are stunning and Carolyn made us feel completely relaxed during them and has really captured the essence of the day.

Our photos were completed in good time after the wedding and it was a great evening looking through them all together.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carolyn to anyone getting married!
