Darren was amazing! He slotted right in with the wedding party and immediately made us all feel at ease! He helped us get the best shots throughout the day without us feeling like we were pulled away from the main event. We are so pleased with the results, he managed to capture what a happy day it was and we can’t stop looking at the photos! Can’t recommend him highly enough! More...

Darren shot my sisters wedding a couple of years ago and there was no shadow of a doubt that we keeping up the family tradition of Darren shooting our wedding. Once again through out the day, Darren felt like part of the family and it was so natural to have him there. He went above and beyond to get the perfect photos and we were happy to go on an adventure which meant us climbing over barbed wire and through corn fields, to help him achieve these. The pictures that we have received are more than we ever expected and we have had so many compliments on how incredible they are. If you are looking for a wedding photographer that creates natural, unforgettable photos, then I can not recommend Darren enough. His attention to detail and friendliness make him stand out above the rest and it’s a decision you will not regret! More...

Darren is absolutely fantastic at what he does, he was the photographer at my sisters wedding and after seeing her photos I knew instantly that he was to be our photographer! My husband is naturally camera shy but he put him at complete ease during our wedding photos. He captures the most exquisite photos without you even realising, I love that he’s prepared to climb, crawl, jump and run to get the perfect shot. Without a shadow of doubt, I would recommend him every time! Thanks Darren for capturing our day perfectly More...

Darren did lovely lovely wedding photos for us, he's super chilled, great sense of humour, genuinely nice guy. All of the guest were very impressed with how nice he was, how he kept them at ease and how he snapped away all day. He came early, left late at night too, to get the most of our special day!

There’s nothing worse than being told where to be or what to do - especially on you’re wedding day. Moreover being organisedaround by a “photographer”. But believe me when I recommend Darren from everybody smile photography to capture your special day I do so with experience of this exceptional award winning man!

Darren isn’t “the photographer” he becomes one of your party. “The photographer” turns into a friend. A friend that doesn’t demand you to stand and hold a bouquet a certain way, kiss your darling new hubby or pose for a photo outside the stunning venue. He’d rather ask; if you’d like to climb that tree, to take a walk in a field or have a paddle in the little brook.

The photos he captures are such quality and speak volumes about your day. It’s true that the food you ate or the pretty flowers which were laid on the tables will be forgotten. What is cherished is those memories you and your guests come away with, that funny moment the newborn baby threw up down the new suit, the emotion felt when the groom cries as his bride walks down the aisle or the ecstasy and screams the bridesmaids fill the room with when their girl is in that white dress. Those are the moments Darren grabs and enables you to keep forever. Those are the moments you won’t know you’ve got to keep until he sends you a link with all the photos and the feeling comes flooding back.

Don’t get me wrong; weddings are expensive. You’ll look at his price and other photographers, you’ll have done your research and think “really.... that much to pose and stand for another family shot” but it’s not that with Darren. Darren is a friend, Darren wants the best for you and the best memories for you. He is worth his weight in gold. Book him. You won’t be disappointed.

We have just had our photos back from Darren, we are over the moon with them. He captured every moment possible and we even had some requests that he was more than able to meet along with his own ideas. Darren was with myself from 8 in the morning and was there in the evening too. Choosing the best photographer for you is really important because they are with you all day. He is so funny and extremely talented, so if that's what your after you should go for him. We have beautiful romantic shots and some caught off guard. Any questions or worries along the way he will put you at ease and does everything in his power to make sure you have the best day. Thank you More...

We have just received our wedding photos; Wow, they are stunning. We are so happy with them, they are phenomenal. I cannot recommend Darren from Everybody Smile Photography enough, he is such a lovely guy, non intrusive, and it felt like he was part of our day, made us laugh all day resulting in over 700 truly natural photos, capturing the pure love and happiness of our day. Such a very talented guy, a true eye for capturing awesome shots, that tell the complete story of your very special day. I cannot recommend Everybody Smile Photography enough. Thank you very much.

We chose Darren to be our wedding photographer off of a recommendation from a good friend and boy did he not disappoint. The morning of the wedding when I should have been nervous, I had a ball. Darren's banter and relaxed take on things had me and the make up artist laughing none stop! This continued throughout the rest of the day and the poor guy worked until very late into the evening. One price for the whole day (as weddings go on further than the first dance!) is fantastic quality and the pictures are beyond anything I've ever seen in any other wedding photos. The pictures captured the laughter and the love on our wedding day and we have those memories to share with our family a lifetime. More...

I'm so pleased that Darren took our photos. Couldn't have hoped to have spent the day with a more fantastic chap who was genuinely delighted for us. The guests loved being around him too and he brought out the real me within minutes. If he's free to take your snaps, grab him before he gets booked up. Absolutely fantastic. You'll love him.

Darren was amazing, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer or a nicer person to share our wedding day with! He made everyone feel very relaxed but held a confident, professional yet friendly demeanour throughout the day to get the shots required. We absolutely love our pictures - I cannot recommend him highly enough. More...

My wife and I are very happy with how our photos turned out. Darren was with my wife in the morning while she had her makeup/hair done with her bridesmaids, and also stayed well into the evening. He was very professional and made a huge effort to capture every moment. Thanks again for all of the hard work. We highly recommend Everybody Smile! More...

Darren was so professional from the first time we met to talk about our wedding.
He worked very hard throughout our big day, capturing the best moments. He put us both at ease and he snapped away all day, we didn’t even notice he was taking the pictures! When we received our images we were over the moon with all of our pictures. They are all very natural and not staged which is just what we wanted.
Darren met us prior to our wedding day to check out our venue and to get a feel for the best shots. That was another chance to catch up on everything and ensured we were both on the same page, and he knew the order of our day.

I would definitely recommend Darren at Everybody Smile, he really did the best job.
Thank you once again.

Wedding photos are the lasting memeory of a wedding day and it was so important for me to find a photographer that would capture all the moments and emotions naturally and with style. Darren was a such a great presence at our wedding and I was confident that he would capture everything we wanted. He did not disappoint! We have so many beautiful photos to treasure and are so grateful for his hard work. An exceptional photographer, highly recommended. More...

We wanted it all -- beautiful, artistic photos of our wedding and also to enjoy the day without feeling we had to be stilted and posed the whole time! Darren delivers! He's "allergic to staged" and just captures the moments as they actually happen in a beautiful way. He's also just a really fun guy and creates a great relaxed vibe- at our wedding the bridesmaids were like " can we be friends with him after this!" :) More...

I just can not recommend Darren enough, what a genuine lovely man. He fitted in with our day perfectly, made us both feel as though we had known him years. Very easy to get along with, I lost count on how many of our guests sang his praises to us too. And the photos. Just wow. Truly stunning. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you so so much, again from both of us for all your hard work, before, during and after our big day! X More...

I instantly loved the way Darren captured photos and I just had to have him as our wedding photographer, and we weren't disappointed. He made us both feel at ease on the day. We must say a thank you for all the times Darren took us away for photos, as it was the only chance we got to speak to and see each other as newlyweds haha !! Hand on heart though, thank you for being there from start to end !! We both cannot wait to see our photos in the up coming months :) Thank you again. 100% recommend. More...

Darren was our wedding photographer and from start to finish (including the pre wedding shoot) was thoroughly professional, knowledgeable and put bit me and my wife at ease over having numerous photos take of ourselves. We have seen the finished photo album today and we are absolutely over the moon with the quality, variety and natural effect of all of the photos. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone who wants professional photos taken. More...

Well... Darren, where do I even begin? You never answered my calls, ignored my messages and never sent anything via email on time! Nahhhh..... just kidding, BEST PHOTOGRAPHER EVER!!! My partner and I had a 2 year engagement, and our photographer was the first thing we booked after my sister spotted him on Facebook. We now feel like we are friends and not just “client/photographer.” It was all smooth sailing - Kate Hollingsworth and Darren are both amazing, exceptional people. Their work is impeccable and faultless. We had so much fun on our 3 pre-wedding shoots, our indian wedding and our civil/reception. They put you at ease and make you laugh. I would only ever recommend Darren and Kate! Thank you so much, Vinay and I are so grateful- make sure you are at the next BBQ! Love Kalps and Vinay xXx More...

Darren did our wedding photos he was brilliant ! We would highly recommend him! He went out of his own way to find the perfect shot for us while the sun was setting. He stayed all the way through our wedding. He’s brilliant we had a great laugh and he kept us both at ease on a wedding day. Darren is a fantastic photographer! Thank you Darren for everything you have done for us on our wedding day, you really are fantastic! Thank you More...

I would definately recommend Darren. If you are looking to book a photographer then Darren is the man to book. We first met Darren at a wedding fayre and instantly knew we wanted him as our photographer. He certainly did not disappoint!! Darren made us all feel at ease and made the day fun which is exactly what we needed. The taster photos we have had so far are amazing and everyone is commenting on how good they are, I really cannot wait to see the rest. More...

We instantly loved the way Darren manages to capture great moments in his photos. Luckily he was free on our wedding day and he was fantastic! He went to great lengths to get some awesome photos and was very patient in rounding up wayward family members for group shots! Our photos arrived last week and they are exactly what we expected. Great mix of some "in-the-moment", fun shots, as well as a good selection of nice romantic shots. He even managed to capture the lift during our first dance :) We also booked a 2nd photographer via him which was worth it to get photos of the groom party getting ready in the morning and the guests whilst we were having family photos. Would 100% recommend him to other couples! More...

We met Darren’s wife at a show at the Villa ground and instantly loved the natural, fun photos. Darren suggested he met up with us at our venue and I instantly knew Darren was the photographer for us. Friendly, laid back and shared our love of travel. On the day Darren arrived shortly after hair and make up commenced and spent the morning trying to convince me the sun would shine- luckily for Darren it did! We had a 2nd photographer too. Mark was great and complimented Darren very well. All of the guests commented and said they didn’t even realise they were been photographed. We are so pleased with the end result, now just have the hard task of choosing which photos we add to the album! More...

Words can’t describe how amazing Darren is at photography. Brian and myself had the pleasure of having Mark on our wedding day Saturday he was amazing and lovely. I haven’t seen all the shots yet but I know they are going to be amazing! Thank you Darren for sorting Mark out last minute and I hope you are feeling better! Cant wait to see the photos! Thank you again so much xxxx More...

From the moment we met Darren 9 months before our day he's made it so easy for us to be comfortable around him (and for me to be comfortable in front of a camera is asking somthing) he blended in and didn't even notice he was there though the day and also his second photographer Eleanor Farr were brillant both came across in the morning and were just like having family getting ready with us. The first few photos that we've seen have been over our expectations can't wait to see the final edits Thank you for documenting our day couldn't of asked for anything more of you both One thing I have to put his timing for light was spot on grabbing us at a certain point in the early evening to get the best light for our couple photos More...

In a word "Perfection".
Darren was our wedding photographer in November 2017. He was the perfect choice. He takes both informal and formal photographs on the day, which together make a beautiful visual story. He has a natural instinct for the best photograph, using all sorts of techniques. He also has superb people-skills, he knows how to organise guests in a polite manner. He will advise you on how to pose in the best way. He's also like a ninja - looking back at the photographs it's very clear just how much he stealthily moved around to get every photo opportunity (including scaling staircases and lying on the floor!). I wasn't even aware of him being at the ceremony and during the speeches - and yet he was, he captured it all! He's discrete when required.
He's a lovely guy too, he's able to mingle and be friendly with all he encounters.
The photographs were released to us in a good time which really made our Christmas extra special. The end result is phenomenal. We have a huge gallery of fantastic photographs, there isn't a bad one amongst them.
I can't recommend Darren highly enough - don't hesitate in your decision, just book him. You won't be disappointed.

Best photographer, highly recommend!
Last month I was a bridesmaid; on the day I felt so at ease and comfortable around Darren and mark, two lovely guys with an amazing talent! They truly went above and beyond capturing every moment; now the pictures have come back and they are amazing, I have no idea how the bride and groom will decide which ones to go into an album because they are all so good!
You won't find a better photographer!

Darren you are a genius! You went above and beyond what I ever would have expected from a wedding photographer. My wife, Stacey and I are so excited to see the photographs, I really feel like you captured everything. It's one thing having a skilled photographer but you are a genuinely nice guy. We got comments all day about how amazing you were! Also, thanks to Mark who came as a second photographer and captured often unseen moments with the groomsmen. Another all round good guy and a true professional. Brides and grooms look no further than Everybody Smile Photography! More...

I want to take a little time to write this review because Darren is absolutely worth his weight in gold!

Let me begin with telling you that this is no cliche review,. It is genuine!

Originally a ‘friend’ of mine was going to shoot our wedding day.. the friend bit didn’t work out � then Darren “randomly” popped up on my Facebook feed!! I know you didn’t really randomly pop up�). After taking a look around Darren’s Facebook page and website, I secretly sent an email to enquire � when Darren replied, I was elated that he was available for our wedding day and I couldn’t hold my excitement as i told and showed my future husband everybody smile photography - who’s response was “WOW - BOOK HIM NOW”. So I did.

We met Darren, at first I was reserved (just me) but I was soon at ease as we learnt a lot about one another. Darren is super friendly and incredibly passionate about his job. My husband and I spoke to him about what was important to us and what memories we needed to cherish from our day. The thought of not having Darren there on our day, now horrifies me!

Not only was Darren clearly passionate about his job - he was confident in his organisation. I hadn’t planned the ‘little things’ well for my day, such as the order that my bridesmaids were to walk down the isle. With only moments left before the big 1 o’clock struck, Darren called all bridesmaids and took charge.. thank you for that.

It meant a lot to my husband and I for us all to get ready in the same vicinity. This meant Darren could take photos from both sides of the party! And he did this so well! I had made up my husband a groom box which held a very special button hole for him. I told Darren I was going to pop it in the room my groom was to get ready.. and if he could be there when my groom opened it. As you can imagine, my brain was like mush, putting all the last minute pieces together. Darren suggested that my grooms sister took him the box when he arrived so Darren could capture every moment and also arrival to the venue.

He was there from early morning - until darker than dark. He worked so hard! Always said the right things to get us smiling and laughing. Took the time to explore the venue and found the best places to get the right snaps. He even took time to explore outside of the venue to find the perfect spot for our sunset photos!

Darren has drip fed us some of our photos as he’s worked on them before sending us our entire package. The sneak peak photos had myself and my family new and old in fits of laughter, and tears of joy!

He captures not only formal but the informal moments that you so easily forget happened! (Clearing my sons nose). The informal moments that you’ll miss as you’ll be so busy taking in as much as you can (the kids playing �). I will hand on my heart treasure these photos for as long as I live. You have allowed me to relive my day - even though it was only a few weeks ago! It’s that easy to miss so much when you’re the bride and groom! We are forever in your debt! We feel so incredibly lucky... and proud to have had you there.

SO - if you’re looking for your wedding photographer...... Please don’t look any further - he’s just here !!!

We are so glad we chose Darren to be our wedding photographer and we couldn't recommend him more! Throughout the booking process, communication was great and Darren made sure he completely understood the style of photos we wanted. On the day Darren was fantastic company, making me and my bridesmaids feel at ease from the moment he arrived. So many of our guests have commented on how great they thought Darren was - he just blended in, capturing the day beautifully without making anyone feel uncomfortable. My partner and I aren't naturals in front of the camera but Darren was still able to get some great natural shots. We are so pleased with our photos, thank you so much Darren :) More...

23 July 2018

Before our wedding we spoke to a few friends, that advised us to make sure we get a good photographer, as a few couples we knew were not happy with theirs, and after the wedding they are the main memories and reminders of one of the most important days of your lives.

I would like to thank Darren for the job that he did, the photos are amazing, easily some of the best value for money that we spent on the wedding.
Not just because of the professional job that he did but because he was up for a laugh, never short of banter and a welcomed person to chat to, amongst all that was going on, and even making you feel more relaxed and at ease,
yet always professional and meticulous through-out.
Thank you so much for immortalising me and my friends and family in such a beautiful way.

Darren was more than we could have hoped for in a photographer. From start to finish he was so helpful, friendly and incredibly professional whilst being easy to talk to! Not only did he produce amazing photographs which perfectly captured our day but he was also a pleasure to have around on our day. He made it so much fun and relaxed and our bridal party and guests couldn’t say anything but good things! So over moon with the final pictures and would recommend Darren to all future brides.

We recently had Darren as our wedding photographer and we cannot recommend him enough! He was absolutely brilliant! Such a laugh, professional and relaxed. He knew exactly what we wanted and catered for our every need and then some. We had a city centre wedding and Darren got us outside in the middle of the street stopping traffic at one point for our perfect shot in the sunset. He was amazing with our 3 year old son getting him involved and taking pictures � he’s a true legend and we would recommend him to everyone we meet. Thank you, thank you, Thank you!!! xx More...

I recently had the pleasure of working alongside Darren at my good friends, Guy and Leigh's wedding. As the Wedding Planner, all contact with Darren was done through me and I have to say he was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The guys had a pre wedding shoot with Darren and although they were a little nervous, he made them feel totally at ease and ensured they were comfortable throughout. On the day of the wedding, Darren arrived early and didn't stop all day! He made sure every moment was captured perfectly and had everyone laughing. The guys received their photos today and on having a sneak peek, I can honestly say they look stunning! I would highly recommend Darren to all couples I work with in the future.
Thank you Darren for all your hard work and support you have shown me with my business!! �

We met Darren at a wedding fayre and booked him the very same day. It was clear he loved what he does. And his photos... .well they spoke for themselves. Stunning! During the build up to our wedding Darren was easy to deal with and really took the time to understand what we wanted from our special day.

On the day Darren was such good fun. He got involved but was discreet at the same time. He has captured our wedding in the most incredible way and photographed memories that will last a lifetime.

Don't think about it....just book him! You won't regret it!

Darren we genuinely can't thank you enough. Legend! xx

have just received my photos from my wedding and what an amazing way to continue the wedding high. From first meeting Darren I knew he would be perfect! I could see his genuine interest in getting to know us and who we were so he could adapt the photos to suit. He was with me from the start of the day and put everyone at ease. Never in the way or intrusive, but also completely involved. He was like part of my bridal party! Darren is funny and has an amazing way if making your photos fresh and original. My photos are of MY wedding, not just your generic stand in a line and smile. They capture the feeling of the day and bought quite a few tears to our eyes. Beautiful, original and vibrant. I could not of asked for more. Thank you for being part of our day and making the memories last forever. More...

23 July 2018

I just wanted to say how delighted me and my husband were to have picked Darren to be our wedding photographer and how greatful we are to have found him on Facebook.

He was amazing all day, he put us at ease by making us play games when we were nervous (as we weren't very good at being serious!) And the results speak for themselves in the pictures. I've only seen 4 so far but they are all stunning and I can't wait to see the others when were back from our honeymoon.

We didn't realise he was there half the time which has resulted in some great natural shots which was just what we were after. We've had so many compliments already, from people both on the day and afterwards once they've seen the pictures he's took.

Again we can't thankyou enough, and I would recommend Darren to anyone wanting to capture those precious moments on their big day!!

Darren was our wedding photographer in September. I booked him purely on his work that I had seen on Facebook and his website. I was very nervous due to this as was worried that I should go with a photographer that friends or colleagues could recommend.
However hiring Darren was one of the best decisions we made for our weeding. He turned up promptly and started working straight away even though it was absolutely manic in my hotel room! He was down to earth and easy to talk with and managed to get some amazing photos of my husband who is notoriously bad at having his photo taken. He just mingled into the background majority of the time and worked tirelessly all day even speaking to our venue and managing to get them to lend us a golf buggy which he had me drive around in my wedding dress to get some amazing shots and different back drops. It was a pleasure to meet him and share our wedding day with him. Most of all our photos are absolutely amazing and surpassed all my expectations. Can't thank Darren enough.

Darren was our wedding photographer in April 2018 He was the perfect choice. He takes both informal and formal photographs on the day which was just what we were after - I am not a fan of having my photo taken at all but Darren just puts you at ease as he is just a lovely lovey guy - a very talented one at that!

He has a natural instinct for the best photograph, using all sorts of techniques - you’ll find him on the floor in a field to make sure he gets the best shots for you!

We have seen a sneak peek of 4 photographs so far and if the rest are anything like these then I’ll be speechless as they are fantastic.
Thanks Darren for your professionalism, all round just brilliant- ness!

We have had our pictures back and we literally couldn’t have asked for better. They are over and above what we expected and a fantastic memory of our amazing day!!

If I could give Darren a 100 � I would. He’s has been nothing but amazing from the first contact we had to decided he would be the one for us. The week before the wedding he met us for a wedding meeting which just turned into a good chat with what felt like Friend. The day of the wedding he arrived at the hairdressers and straight away I felt like he was part the wedding party felt totally relaxed. He captured the those special moments I missed or forgot happened. My husband and I can’t do serious photos and he really captured our personalities. Nothing was missed! Everyone said how Great he was and enjoyed him being part of our day. After the wedding he kept in contact sending us sneak peak pictures! Then we received our photos which were just amazing quality and told the story of the wedding. If you want to have a fun photographer and Who gets on with your wedding party pick Darren. We are already wanting him for other occasions!!!! Thankyou so much Darren!! More...

Darren is fantastic, he recently took photos of me and my daughter which will last a life time. Darren is so relaxed and happily followed my daughter around who wanted to do her own thing and he took such beautiful photos! Thank you x

Darren's photography continues to go from strength to strength. His personality alone and presence on a wedding day makes him a 'must book this guy' choice. Book him while you can still afford him!!! More...

What a find by far the best photographer I have ever met, Darren put everyone at ease straight away with the greatest of banter, getting photos of camera shy bridesmaids and groom. There is nothing that Darren can't do to get that perfect shot. I would recommend Darren to anyone he was amazing! I can't wait to see our photos! Amazing!!! More...

Darren arrived on time and his cameras were clicking from the moment the bridesmaids and bride had their hair and makeup done to everybody enjoying the evening. He was discreet in the church, put us all at ease and his pictures are imaginative from the formal to fun. Can't recommend him enough. Katie and Dan's wedding 26.5.2017. More...

Darren is fantastic - a highly skilled photographer who goes above and beyond. He listened well to the brief, reacted well to new shots we wanted and the result? Capturing our intimate and quirky wedding - including some outstanding urban photography. Our guests all loved him, he was great, made everyone feel so relaxed and special. That's invaluable. He made us feel like superstars for the day! We won't hesitate to use his services again. Thank you so much Darren, from Uzma and Tristan, 2 March 2017. More...

Darren was a pleasure to have as our photographer and we would highly recommend him. From the first contact, Darren went above and beyond to meet our expectations and was easy to build a rapport with. Darren's communication was great, prompt responses to texts / phone calls and he was flexible in both timings and locations for meetings. On the big day, Darren was professional, made us feel at ease and was also fun to be around. Darren captured all our key moments as requested and we now have some beautiful photos for memory. Thank you Darren! More...

Well, I am not sure you can put into words just how amazing Darren was for our special day. From the moment we met up at our initial meeting he put us right at ease and listened intently to what we wanted from our day. We wanted the day to reflect us, so wild, unusual pics and that is exactly what we got. We were lucky enough to have a 2nd photographer that Darren sourced for us and Mark was brilliant as well, bringing along a trainee, so we had 3 all day! We lucked out on that. Darren found the most wonderful places to shoot at Birtsmorton Court and didn't leave a stone unturned. We were away from our guests at periods during the day of course but it was a very much 'go with the flow' rather than strict times to go as you out so much effort into the day, it was ours to enjoy along with getting the right pictures. We even put back out first dance, which actually made the day work even better. Darren made us feel very comfortable whilst taking pictures and at one point even contemplated putting us on hedges of the grounds...which we would have done, if they would have been strong enough!! That's what you get with Darren, someone willing to push boundaries, listen to what you want and explore it. We were just so very glad to have chosen him and could not recommend him more. We will definitely be using him again for anything we need a photographer for in the future and our friends have already booked him for their wedding next year. That says it all. Thanks Darren!

OMG and WOW! Were the words that came to my head when I received my photos for my business FB page and website! I have never been photogenic and hated all photos of me- to be honest I was dreading having my photos taken. However, Darren is a true professional and I had real fun doing the shoot. When I saw the photos I could not believe it was me! They were amazing! Infact I want to do more! I'm so impressed with the quality, Darren has a natural skill for photography. I would not look any further. You won't get better than Darren. More...

Darren is pretty much the best friend you didn't know you had. we spent a good few hours walking through the woods snapping photo's in obscure settings the first day i met him, my job being easy following simple direction whilst Darren's was that of someone in the Royal Marines navigating nettles, branches, mud and loose surfaces to obtain the perfect angle all whilst dressed like a true gent, this man is selfless in his pursuit of a good photo. The next time I saw Darren was my wedding day and true to form the day kicked off no different with him joining forces with myself and best men along with my bride to egg each other on into more and more surreal photographs, the settings changed through rain, hail, and sun-shine to dark moody clouds but Darren kept everyone's spirits high with more and more daring photo suggestions that we where only too happy to throw ourselves into. This man made my wedding day more than it have been with any other photographer, had he not been holding a camera he would have been recognized easily among my best men, as he fit in seamlessly with every crowd at the wedding. Cannot possibly recommend this gentleman enough. As if the personality he brings isn't enough he conducts himself with a polite decorum and his photography is exceptional in every aspect. Without hesitation this will not be the last i see of Darren, look forward to capturing more memories with you in the future buddy ^^ More...

Anybody who tells you wedding photographers aren't good value for money hasn't met Darren. Darren was recommended to me by an old friend for my step-daughter's wedding. From the beginning he has been so much more than a photographer. Wedding planner, children's entertainer, stand-up comedian and not to mention the amazing photographs. We haven't seen the finished album yet but I know from the sneak previews that I'm going to run out of superlatives. Darren, you made a special day, totally unforgettable and I can't recommend you highly enough. More...

Darren took the photos for our wedding in October (sorry for the late review) and he was amazing. We met with him way before to see what he offered and we were really happy with him. He made me feel really relaxed on the wedding morning and during the day and the photos he took were just brilliant, we couldn't have asked for any better. We would highly recommend booking him. Family and friends were also impressed with how he worked, they even took a few selfies . Thanks so much Darren for capturing our special day. - Tom & Chloe More...

The engagement photos we received from Darren are fantastic. We've found it really hard to choose some to have in the house. Darren is professional yet not hard to approach. He captured photos that we laughed at remembering the moment! We are all looking forward to the photos of our big day and can't wait to see what fun events will happen on the day. Thank you again Darren for sharing your skill and capturing some truly beautiful photos of us. More...

From the moment Darren came to our house on The day of the wedding, he made things easy and SO enjoyable for both me and my bridesmaids. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer. I'm not a bride that finds it easy to to relax and pose for the camera but Darren soon had me feeling comfortable and constantly making me and my bridesmaids laugh from beginning to end. He was very professional and helped with many suggestions with group photos as me and my husband had no idea really on what we wanted. Darren didn't just take photos of the daily happenings of the wedding he created memories for us to treasure for Ever, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I hope to deal with Darren again in the near future. More...
