“Simon photographed our London wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made.”

Having met him at a wedding of our friends a few years previously and having seen how beautifully their wedding photos came out, we knew we wouldn’t regret it! Simon was professional from start to finish, going above and beyond on our big day. On the day itself Simon made sure to make us feel completely relaxed. He dressed smartly and discretely shot our wedding day like a complete professional. And once the wedding day was over, he surprised us with teasers of what photos were to come. The photos arrived so quickly that when they arrived it came as a complete surprise. The photos were stunning I can’t stop looking! Thank you Simon!

“Simon’s approach is very personal, it is important to him to capture the essence of the couple themselves in their own style, which we greatly appreciated. ”

Simon captured our wedding day beautifully, his photos of the day illustrate the full range of emotions and sentiments felt by all. We are both amazed at how vividly our happiness is conveyed in the pictures, they are a real treasure for us to keep and through which to relive our wedding day.

We chose Simon because we wanted a more natural approach to the wedding photos and it was important to us to have someone who put us at ease. Our couple shoot was our favourite time of the wedding day, it was a really special time in which Simon not only captured beautiful shots but also let us enjoy the quiet time together.

On top of the beautiful photos he takes Simon is a pleasure to work with, he was on hand to help with everything from buttonholes to car parking issues! He is incredibly calm and very reassuring. Many of our guests commented on how professional and discreet Simon was and everyone has been delighted to look over the many naturally captured moments.

We would really like to thank Simon for all his work and support on the day and would highly recommend him. Our photos were with us in no time which was wonderful so we could relive the day again and again!

“Simon made us feel completely at ease... his vision and talent is extraordinary and the final pictures totally exceeded our expectations.”

“Writing a testimonial has been quite challenging, not because Simon isn’t gifted – in fact quite the opposite; it’s been difficult to know where to start the praise! From the moment we met Simon we knew he was ‘the one’. Throughout the day he blended in with our family and friends and never imposed on us or them. He captured every moment of our day. Upon returning from our honeymoon we received the most perfect personalised package and it instantly soothed our post wedding blues.

When we saw our photos for the first time it was if we were watching a film in stills, moments we didn’t witness and reliving those we were present to. He stole an emotion in each and every one of his photographs. We could feel the immense love and atmosphere of the day throughout the whole collection and at that moment we both fell even more in love with each other and the day we decided to promise ourselves to one another.

We are truly thankful to Simon for sharing his genius with us and allowing us to relive our wedding day for many years to come - we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

“Choosing a photographer can be a really tricky wedding decision as they have such an important role. Hand on heart I can say we are so happy we chose Simon to take on the task. The photos we have from our wedding are beautiful, full of detail, fun & intimacy.”

They capture the excitement, joy, love and laughter we experienced. We absolutely love them. There are even a few things we missed on the day that we now have photographic evidence of!

Simon has a wonderfully calm manner and helps maintain a genuine sense of ease, which you can really see in the photos he takes. He was able to blend in with the guests so that it never felt like the photography was getting in the way of the day. Returning from our honeymoon to find our wedding photos ready and waiting was just the icing on a rather incredible cake.

“Simon is not only a true professional, but he is also a genuinely nice guy! ”

“We had seen Simon photographing a friends wedding the year before ours and were so impressed with the relationship he formed with the guests that we knew we had to have him for our big day! Right from the off Simon was excited about our theme and somehow managed to make us feel that ours was the only wedding he was working on - quite incredible considering he is fully booked throughout the year! We made the best choice in choosing Simon and our photos are fantastic, we wanted a soft and romantic look and he achieved that effortlessly.

We would recommend Simon to anybody planning a wedding, you will feel like he is one of your guests who just happens to be a genius with a camera. Thank you Simon - you have given us the perfect memories from our wonderful day.”

“Thank you so much for taking the most wonderful photos at our wedding. You always had a smile on your face and seem so relaxed that Nick and I couldn’t help but feel at ease when you were photographing us!”

“At some weddings it feels like the formal photos take forever, but our seemed to be done before I knew it and we could get back to our guests, which was perfect! And we absolutely love the photos, so many amazing moments caught perfectly. It takes us right back to the day and makes me want to do it all over again! Thank you so much for everything, I can’t believe we were lucky enough to find you.”

“Simon thank you so much for the beautiful photos; we knew they would be good, but you have captured some truly stunning images!”

From the key shots to all the little moments we would have otherwise missed, we have an amazing collection of pictures we will always treasure. You were so good with our guests and even somehow managed to change our vicar’s stance on no photographers in the church! It really was a pleasure having you with us on our big day. Thank you again.

“Simon, you are a genius! You made it all seem so effortless and just got among the action to capture the most natural, gorgeous shots.”

Simon could make anyone feel at ease in front of the camera and as a result we have a true reflection of our day and all its emotions, exactly as we wanted. We could not be more thrilled with our photos and will treasure them forever. Queensberry showcase our photos brilliantly and we now have a beautiful album to do them justice. Simon Biffen and Queensberry albums are a match made in Heaven! We would recommend him to anyone. We knew we wouldn’t be disappointed, but we have been totally blown away by the simply perfect photos. Thank you!

“Simon captured the mood of our day perfectly... he was so calm and funny it felt more like having another friend join us.”

When it came to having photos of just the two of us, Simon told us to just enjoy that time together, which we thought was lovely advice. We laughed our heads off as he put us totally at ease and the time flew by before we rejoined our guests. It made such a difference that Simon knew the venue and all the best places take photos, not just by the castle or the sea, but also in the beautiful gardens. We loved all the photos and he was really popular with our guests, he even getting some wonderful, natural shots of even the most camera-shy guests.

We really appreciated receiving a first look photo before we left for our honeymoon. Having the USB with all the photos beautifully presented when we got back helped ease the comedown! Our Queensbeery album is stunning and we will treasure it forever. We can’t recommend Simon enough.

“Planning a wedding from the other side of the Atlantic can be stressful, but as soon as we found Simon, we knew we needed him to be our photographer.”

“His every involvement in the run up to our big day was utterly stress-free and we felt in safe, capable hands. The pictures we received a little over two weeks after the wedding are beyond words. Simon manages to capture the very essence of the day without you even realising he’s there. Everybody who sees our photos comments on just how relaxed, happy and natural they are… and the best bit is every time we look at them we find another photo which quickly becomes our new favourite! We truly couldn’t be happier with the keepsake Simon provided from what was the best day of our lives. A genuinely MASSIVE thank you from us both.”

“We are so happy with how our photographs came out from our wedding in Somerset, as well as the whole experience working with Simon.”

From the start, he was professional, prepared, creative and thoughtful, and was a pleasure to have as part of our wedding day celebration. He had great techniques for bringing out relaxed and sweet moments between my husband and I, and his photos honestly capture the essence of love and romance felt. Simon knew exactly what we were looking for and he really listens to his clients. We will cherish the memories captured in his photography for the rest of our lives!

“Your wedding day is a very unique day, it goes by ridiculously quickly and it is filled with so many once in a million moments that it is impossible to remember all of them... that is unless you have Simon Biffen as your photographer! ”

As impossible as it is, Simon managed to capture all of those moments in such a natural and unobtrusive way, and we were so comfortable around him, that it didn’t feel like we were being photographed at all.
Our first experience with Simon was during the pre-wedding shoot. We were both a little nervous but decided we were going to just go with the flow and we are so happy we did, Simon managed to capture ‘us’, which is such a rare thing to portray in a photo.
On the day itself, Simon was amazing, blending in with our guests and taking amazing, natural moments of everyone having a good time. Simon really is a gem. Book him, you will not regret it!

“On the day, Simon demonstrated a high level of empathy towards the event and created a calm and relaxed atmosphere. He was personable and charismatic, and blended in perfectly with the tone of the day.”

Simon’s candid and relaxed approach appealed to us straight away and he was fantastic right from the start. We were organising our relaxed and intimate and wedding from abroad and he was prompt with emails, made time to Skype and really listened to what we were looking for. In the run up to the wedding, Simon’s procedure for getting everything organised was simple and effective and made the whole thing seem rather easy! On the day, Simon demonstrated a high level of empathy towards the event and created a calm and relaxed atmosphere. He was personable and charismatic, and blended in perfectly with the tone of the day.

His laid back approach really put us at ease and made him feel more like a guest with a fancy camera! But the quality of his photos proved that here was a true professional at work. The shots are so beautiful. They capture not only the situation, but also the real emotion behind the moment. We’re so grateful to Simon for giving us these memories, especially for capturing the little moments throughout the day that we missed. Every time we go through the photos it’s like reliving the day all over again. That is something we will be eternally grateful for. Thank you Simon!

“Simon, what can we say but a massive thank you for capturing our day so beautifully. From start to finish your communication, creativity, fun and inspiration was invaluable.”

Your attention to detail and just getting everything ‘spot on’ made for an extremely relaxed and enjoyable time - it really was the best day ever! You didn’t miss a moment and the photos will forever remind us of the truly wonderful wedding day we shared.
Everyone commented on your friendly approach and style on the day and this was again echoed when we received the images. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to any of our friends in the future. Thank you for all the memories!

“Choosing Simon as our wedding photographer was one of the easiest and most successful decisions we made about our day. Simon made the organisation so easy in the run-up, and on the day was fantastic.”

He was so unobtrusive, which was really important to us, it felt like he was just another guest on the day. He somehow managed to get all the shots we wanted without making us or the guests feel like we were being organised at all! We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. We absolutely love our pictures, they capture the feeling of the day so perfectly, and Simon really excels in capturing all those wonderful spontaneous moments in the candid shots, as well as the more formal ones. We have had so many compliments on our pictures, and people always comment how happy and relaxed we are in the shots, which is exactly what we wanted - thank you Simon. The only downside is that all the pictures are so wonderful that it is impossible to narrow them down for the album!

“From start to finish, Simon was fantastic; from helping us to consider all of the shots we would want, through to timings of the day.”

“We got married on the shortest day of the year in a church with no electricity or heating so light was massive factor, as was time. Simon handled what I would have considered a difficult photo-shoot brilliantly. He helped us so much and we were in no doubt we had chosen the right person to capture our magical day.

Kate has a mild Pinterest addiction so had a few fairly ‘out there’ requests for Simon (long exposure shots, sparkler shots etc) all of which he captured fantastically well; we had several comments on them saying they looked like movie posters! He put all our guests at ease and took all sorts of requests from anyone who asked during the day.

The quality of photos is out of this world and the service that Simon delivered put my wife and I totally at ease. Professional and friendly, he had Kate and I in stitches while we we doing our couple photos. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

“We can't thank Simon enough for the beautiful photos he took of our wedding day. Simon made us feel at ease from the word go.”

He met with Helen and I a number of times to find out what we wanted and worked effortlessly with us to ensure it happened. Throughout the day Simon was professional and discreet, which really enabled us to relax and have fun with him. Simon really does go the extra mile, not only did he produce an awesome Queensberry album, for which we will treasure forever, he also made sure our photos were available to view online while we were on our honeymoon so we were able to show members of the family that were unable to attend the wedding. Thank you!
