We absolutely LOVE the photos Charles took of our wedding at Highcliffe Castle. We will certainly have our work cut out trying to decide which to include in the album he's creating for us, but we're already working on it and are so happy to have them all to keep to remember our special day. Not being able to be everywhere at all times throughout the day, we also now have some new moments to be able to remember that we would otherwise have missed, so HUGE thanks again for capturing all of our loved ones and happy memories so incredibly well. We will treasure these for a lifetime. Lots of love, Dan & Maria xx

Great photography session with my two children in June - Charles managed to capture some lovely photos - no mean feat with a 12 month old and an 11 year old! Made us all feel very relaxed from the second we met. Thoroughly recommend.

Charlie took our wedding photos and we were very pleased with the result. Beautiful pictures that really captured the spirit of the day. His unobtrusive style meant that he somehow managed to capture everything we wanted without interrupting the day. Perfect memories and natural, happy photos. I couldn’t recommend Charlie more highly.

Charles photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding day. He is a very friendly and relaxed photographer which in turn makes us feel happy and relaxed! He gave us advice on the best ways to stand / walk / tilt our head to optimize our positioning for a great photo. Our photos are beautiful - thank you Charles!

We absolutely loved our wedding photos! Charles was brilliant, from start to finish! All our guests commented on how good he was and that they didn't even notice he was there half the time. We still recommend him now 4 years on!

A relaxed, unobtrusive approach but did a fantastic and professional job. Very pleased with the end product and value for money. Would be happy to recommend Charles to anyone. Great wedding photos and now family photos for us.

Charles took our wedding photos and they're beautiful. He really managed to capture the spirit of the day and did exactly what we asked. He's very professional and good at putting people at ease in order to get the best shot. We wanted our pictures to remember the day but not to spend all our time posing for them. Charlie understood this and did an amazing job in a very unobtrusive way. I'd definitely recommend him.

There is not a nicer, more professional or more skilled photographer than Charles. He became a real friend to us! Passionate about people and photography, he's just incredible. And we hardly noticed him on the day! You won't find anyone better than Charles.

Having worked with Charles on a photoshoot recently I can see why he has such lovely reviews, calm, professional and thorough with an eye for detail his wedding photography certainly stands out in a very competitive industry am looking forward as a makeup artist to working with him again this year.

Charles is an incredible photographer and you instantly feel at ease with him around on your special day. He did the photography for my brother's wedding on Saturday, and we particularly loved his ability to get beautiful and natural shots. Thank you for everything Charles!

Charles is really skilled. He put the children at ease and made them laugh. He helped us relax too and took some lovely pictures without any.drama.

We have seen Charles' work at 3 of our friends weddings and decided we would book him for ours. The best decision ever. Before the big day we met with Charles a couple of times to discuss the day and what he would be doing. Charles even gave us a lesson in how to pose for pictures!!

Charles spent the day with us, the morning with me whilst I was getting ready and then all day just past the first dance. You wouldn't even know he was there. He even took us to mudeford quay for some photos after our food as the light was perfect.

We can't wait to see the shots he has taken, the couple he showed us on the camera were fantastic.

I would definitely recommend Charles Thorne Photography to anyone needing a photographer

Thank you for creating the photo memories of our special day

Love Matt and Claire Tranter. Xx

What a lovely man and fabulous photographer. We had a family photo shoot with Charles, which was a huge success, due to his professional, calm and warm persona. My 14 year old son was ‘reluctant’ to have his photo taken before hand, but you wouldn’t know by looking at the photos as Charles made him feel comfortable, at ease and made it fun!! He ended up having a wail of a time. I would highly recommend!!! Thank you �
