Lake District & Broadoaks Wedding Photographer

Kind words

On 8th January 2015 I was more than delighted to receive this… a testimonial prepared by

Mr and Mrs Mark Malpass – married 19th July 2014

Why David? Our friends who had married two years before used David as their wedding photographer and having seen their album and the quality of both the album but more importantly the quality of the photos, David was our first choice.

We researched other photographers before making the decision, but opted for a recommendation from our friends and on the basis of his work that we had seen.

Following a couple of meetings including a very productive pre wedding venue visit, we were more than happy that David was the man to capture the events as they would unfold on our special day. His professionalism and expertise spoke for themselves. Make sure you ask his opinion and advice on particular shots, styles etc, he knows his stuff and that is what you are paying for to record the most important day of your life.

On the wedding day itself, disaster, rain all day. Our list of photos was scrapped as the majority of them were in the grounds at the two wedding venues. Despite this David captured our day perfectly and managed 700 photos to review for our album, which he had already cut down from more!

Inside Church photos replaced the planned outside shots, we were worried they would appear dark within the old building but the photos presented for our review were far from it. Our planned traditional wedding photos were saved.

Add an umbrella outside the reception venue and the unplanned shots capturing the rain and the white umbrella were photos which perfectly represented our day and unique to us, a consequence of David’s expertise.

The first dance photos another noticeable mention with the venue lights captured perfectly and others taken during the day including our “Gone with the Wind” inspired shot, and subsequent editing provided photos in a style taken and edited by David with his initiative and ingenuity.

After the big day we were presented with a memory stick full of photos to review and select, within two weeks of our special day!

We married in July of 2014 and our album was actually with us in November 2014. It would have been quicker had we chosen our photos sooner – David was chasing us! The quality is fantastic, the layout and sequence perfectly capturing our special day. Again, ask David for his advice and expertise in selecting the album layout, finish etc. He really does know his stuff.

We would be happy to recommend David to anyone and his approach to the day could not be improved upon. Unnoticed and unobtrusive but capturing the day in everything it should be, the day of your life.

Cheers David. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of wedding photographer.

Mark Malpass,

For and on behalf of Mr and Mrs Mark Malpass.

And here’s their ‘Gone with the Wind’ image 🙂


Nicola & Mark

“Hi Dave – Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work during our wedding and for the stunning results which you have produced

Stunning seems to be the word which everyone has used to describe the photos from the small detailed shots of wedding favours to the amazing castle shots.  People just cannot believe the fabulous results. You even made me look quite handsome ha ha

We have looked through them loads of times already and everytime we do we see something new which either makes us laugh or cry or both. The mother in law crying, my daughter listening to phone messages as I do my speech etc etc. We love every shot and its gonna be a nightmare selecting which ones will make the album

We will be forever grateful for everything you did. I never knew a photographer worked so hard. You clearly love your job and it shows in the way you work and the results you produce. You made the whole day fun and relaxed for us and all the guests”

Frances & Dan

“Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures that so captured the feeling and essence of our wonderful day. From the moment we met you to the wedding day, you have dealt with us in a personable and yet professional way and we felt confident in the photos you would produce. We were so right to trust you, the dvd is fabulous and we have so many photos to choose from it is going to be so difficult to pick between them for the album!!

Our guests said that they felt that they hardly realised you were there, yet you managed to capture so many moments. You rose to the challenge of rubbish weather and yet managed to keep the photo taking fun!

Thank you again for all you have done to preserve the memories of our special day and we will keep recommending you wholeheartedly!

Fran and Dan x”

Laura & Chris

“Thank you so much for a very relaxed and overall FUN wedding day!

The pictures are exactly what we wanted – not the stuffy formal portraits, where smiles are forced that we have seen at other peoples’ weddings!

I would highly recommend you to anyone as we had such a fun time and everyone at the wedding commented on how good you were.  The DVD is brilliant and really shows how the day unfolded – a story in pictures.

I have no idea how I am going to choose for the album, as they all reflect our day perfectly.

Once again, thank you so much!

Laura & Chris”

Thelma & Graham

“What else can I say but a very very big thankyou from the bottom of our heart. The pictures are amazing and you were brilliant too. You do such an amazing job, everyone had a great day and now we can replay them special moments over and over again.

Cried my eyes out when I watched it the first time, just can not put it away. Would recommend you to everyone I know. You should be so proud of yourself.

Thankyou once again.

Love Thelma and Graham xx”

Chrissy & Ben

“Hi David.

Hope you are ok, apologies for not thanking you sooner for capturing our day so fantastically, we must have spent a week just looking through the album again and again, we’ve finally got round to showing the fantastic album to most of the family they think its fantastic too

Its suprising how much you remember just from looking through the photos and reliving the fantastically fun time on our Mini themed wedding day! Thanks again for capturing our truly unique wedding in such a fantastic, fun and professional way

Kind Regards and all the best for the future

Chrissy and Ben”

Louise & Dean

This was written inside my ‘Thank You’ card prior to Louise seeing her photos…

“Thank you, thank you, thank you Sooo much! You made our day such a fun & enjoyable one! You not only put us at ease, but you put me in the bath too! ha ha. You did such a superb job, words cannot ex…press our gratitude!

Lou & Dean”

And 24 hours later when she’d viewed her DVD 10 times (she said!!!)

“THANK YOU SOOooo much!! You did such a fantastic job, you not only shot the best photos but helped make our day such a fun and memorable one.

Watched our dvd last night..this morning..afternoon and tonight! We laughed, giggled and cried! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends, family and acquaintances!

Thank you X”
