Katie & Jonny (wedding Latimer House) Wendy photographed our wedding in April 2019. We found Wendy after seeing her work from a close friend's wedding. We went to visit her studio and were impressed with her portfolio and knowledge. We instantly knew she was the one to photograph our wedding. We had some engagement photos taken as a practice, which I would thoroughly recommend as this meant we were very comfortable on our wedding day. Wendy was very organised and we ran through the day in advance and on our site visit. On the day we barely noticed she was there. She blended into the background but the shots are right in the action! When we received the photos back we were over the moon with all the moments she had captured that we hadn't even seen! Unashamed to say we sat on the sofa and creied at how beautiful they were! Wendy also worked collaboratively with our videographer to create the best atomosphere. Wendy is thoughtful, creative and professional and we absolutely recommend her.
Laura & Tom (Wedding Chenies Manor) Wendy did a beautiful job of capturing our wedding, especially given the difficult circumstances of non-stop rain on the day! The group photos and pictures of the key moments in the day are lovely but it was also a wonderful surprise to find that Wendy had captured lots of moments that we weren't aware of. Wendy herself was a pleasure to deal with - organised and authoritative on the day but also very friendly and personable. I couldn't recommend her enough!
Rebecca & Tom (Wedding Notley Abbey) Wendy photographed our Autumn Wedding in October this year 2018. It was cold and wet on the day which took us all by surprise but Wendy kept us both calm and continued to photograph us despite the weather challenges - and what fabulous photos they turned out to be! We both had a wonderful and happy day - the rain in a funny way added to it all. Wendy was an absolute trooper and continued to snap away... even when we all went outside in the cold to watch the fireworks, she managed to capture us all perfectly giggling at the chaos! She couldn’t have been more perfect :) Thank you!
Grace & Sean Fraser (Hedsor House) Wendy photographed our wedding last May 2018 at Hedsor House and we were very pleased with the way she captured our special day. There were so many lovely photos that choosing a portion of them for an album was very tricky. Wendy was relaxed and managed to capture the emotion of the day without us really noticing she was there. She also got our photos into the Bucks, Berks and Oxon wedding magazine which was a lovely touch... and a credit to how beautiful they were. Thank you Wendy for all your hard work xx
Tori & George Rouse (Wedding Chenies Manor) Wendy photographed our wedding so wonderfully! We were so excited to see the photos and they captured so many wonderful moments that we would never have seen without her skill. The venue had a series of small gardens and she did such an amazing job of capturing the scenery as well as people enjoying themselves. Thank you so much Wendy. We will forever treasure your photos.
Andy and Helen Morris (Wedding, Notley Abbey) When we were lucky enough to find Wendy to photograph our wedding, we didn't realise we had struck gold. Her photographs were simply stunning. Wendy captured our wedding day with a whole portfolio of beautiful images that went far beyond our expectations. Wendy is a consummate professional who listened to what we wanted and delivered in an unobtrusive and friendly manner. We really would have no hesitation in recommending Wendy to capture your special day.
Katie & Marc Botham (Wedding Bix Manor) Dear Wendy We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing photos that you took at our wedding, they are stunning and exactly what we had in mind. You were so professional and discreet that we barely noticed you. Everyone has commented on how beautiful they are. We will be in touch soon once we have decided on which photos to choose, so hard as we love them all. Thank you once again. Much love Katie x
Jess & Matt Charms (Wedding Danesfield House Hotel) Matt and I were married in Spring and Wendy did an amazing job at capturing our special day. The photographs of us and our are wonderful! She was also a total pleasure to work with; so friendly and consequently fitted right in to our big day - thank you Wendy! Matt & Jess Charman x
Mark & Gigi Huggins (Wedding Cliveden) Having researched several local photographers online we were struck by Wendy’s Website and by her style of photography. We were looking for a reportage style that absolutely captured the moment, the emotion, the character and personality of those being photographed. Wendy gives you this and much more. Her instinctive ability to press the shutter at exactly the right moment is not to be underestimated. We think the results speak for themselves. Wendy is generous with her time and extremely experienced in her craft, the result is you get what you want. Her skill ensures that you will enjoy the pleasure of selecting many beautiful photographs from her efforts. The final result will mean lasting memories of those special, once in a lifetime moments. We recommend her to anyone seeking the best in reportage photography.
Clare & Richard Boeve (Wedding, a beautiful private meadow in Hertfordshire!)We had previously admired Wendy's professionalism at a friend's wedding and were delighted that she was available to be our wedding photographer too! Wendy has a very engaging, endearing personality which is reflected in her astounding shots. She captured the very essence of our wedding, which in its woodland setting, highlighted the beauty of nature. Our album echoes beautifully fun images of friends and family, as Wendy photographed them unobtrusively. We cannot recommend her expertise enough - the overriding impression we have is that our magical day has been enriched by Wendy's skilful professionalism. Her presence at our wedding truly enhanced our day and we're very grateful! Clare and Richard Boevé
Charlotte & Michael Moss (Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire) Wendy was absolutely fantastic on our big day - she was so friendly whilst also being unobtrusive. She really listened to what we wanted and used her expertise to guide us through what would work well. She photographed my brother and sister-in-law's wedding, so we knew we were onto a winner! It felt like working with a friend. But I have to say the final result is beyond even our expectations. Can not recommend enough - Wendy is charming to work with and is a fantastic photographer. Thank you so much!
Tom & Laura (Chenies Manor) We knew we wanted Wendy for our wedding the moment we met her. It was important to us that our photographer got to know us as a couple rather than just taking staged photos and this is exactly what we got. She was so lovely from day one. Neither myself or my husband like having our picture taken or being centre stage and so it was quite daunting but Wendy assured us that pictures would be a story book of moments captured and she definitely delivered. We hardly noticed her on the day( in a good way )and couldn’t be happpier with some of the incredible moments she somehow captured from love, emotion, friendship, family and just outrageously happy. Thank you x
Carla & Ian Session (Wedding Silchester House) We hired Wendy to do our wedding photographs back in July this year. My father summed up Wendy perfectly. He was really worried after the wedding that Wendy didn't take many photos, however when we received them back he was shocked as to how many and amazing photos she took. Wendy reported our wedding perfectly without being in our faces or ordering around our guests. Could not recommend highly enough. Thank you Wendy x
Viki & Mike Davies (Wedding, Notley Abbey) Wendy was our first choice as soon as we saw her amazing website, and we were so pleased she was available on our Wedding day. As soon as we met her, we felt very relaxed in her company - she is such a lovely lady. Both of us are normally a little shy about having our photos taken, but Wendy made us feel completely at ease all day and was great company. We now have some fabulous photographs to remember our day - better than we ever could have imagined. Thank you so much Wendy xx
Natalie & Geraint (Wedding Court Garden House) Thanks so much Wendy for our beautiful wedding book in its lovely box. It's really gorgeous and we’re very happy. You’ve not only captured each individual part of the day exceptionally well but everyone in the photographs is smiling, happy, natural and beautiful. How did you do that?! And looking at digital images online is simply not the same experience as seeing them in large colourful detail in a well presented, thoughtfully laid out book. It is a real keepsake to treasure forever. Oh, and my husband and I ACTUALLY look ok!
Emily & Matt Erickson (Wedding Harrow) Wendy is the most fantastic photographer. She is discreet, professional and patient who catches beautiful natural moments that other photographers would miss. I would never use anybody else for photography in the future and I would strongly advise anybody else to do the same. Thank you for catching all of our precious wedding moments, Wendy!
Sarah & Pablo Funcasta Maseda (Wedding Cain Manor Hampshire) 'It was a pleasure to work with Wendy from the planning stage, on the day and making up our album. She knew before the day what type of shots we prioritised and our group shots were already decided. On the day she was non-intrusive and guided us well when needed. The result is a beautiful album of the day and it captures all our family and friends in a relaxed style. We are extremely happy with how our special memories were captured.'
Lucy Young and Peter Borcherds (Wedding, Hurley private gardens) Wendy has a true gift of being able to capture the mood of the day and her photographs from our wedding are just fantastic! Her attention to detail produced wonderful pictures starting from the bridal preparation through to the ceremony, wedding breakfast and the party. She made all of us feel at ease and was extremely efficient in organsizing all the group photos. Our wedding album and slide show are beautiful and captured our joy and happiness perfectly. She has been a real pleasure to work with.
Kerys & Darrell (Wedding Monkton Barn) What can we say about Wendy. probably awesome! As a designer it was imperative that any photographer we used knew their stuff and after meeting Wendy, we knew straight away she was going to impress. On the wedding day she managed to really control our families and freinds well, ensuring everyone got photographed. Her arsenal of lenses and knowledge allowed her to shoot in various lights indoors and out without stopping the flow of the day. The photographs are breathtaking, such a diverse set of images from fun to intimate. We can't thank Wendy enough for capturing the most magical day of our lives. Thank you Wendy! Love, Mr & Mrs Thrope.
Camilla and Martin Royds (Wedding, Sir Charles Napier) We were fortunate enough to meet Wendy in July 2010 at our friends wedding, so there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted her to photograph our wedding. Wendy's photographs of our wedding are simply stunning, she captured the feel of the whole day and moments that as a bride and groom you otherwise miss.
Malgosia & Matthew (wedding, Danesfield House) It was a pleasure having Wendy at our wedding, she was professional and made everyone feel very relaxed. What makes the whole process so special is that she gets to know you as people and as a couple; this makes per photos unique and personable. Photographing the wedding is only part of the process. We cannot thank Wendy enough for the amount of work that went into creating the photo gallery and the albums for ourselves and our parents. All the memories of our special day have been magically captured - thank you Wendy!
Steve Williams, Executive Editor, BBC Global News (Portraits) I have worked with professional photographers and camera crews for 25 years in TV and newspapers all over the world, and not even remotely can I recall such an array of stunning shots. Wendy has now achieved this three times for us, in 2006/2008/2010 and 2019. What's more, we now have two sets of twins under five, and it was occasionally bedlam leading up to and sometimes during the last shoot. However, there was not a single photograph that was not terrific. I was almost disbelieving. To boot Wendy is a lovely person; personable, engaging, unobtrusive, and the children loved her. They certainly didn't want to leave. It was far too much fun. Wendy also achieved what we most wanted; a series of photographs that captured something of the essential personalities of each of our children. I have no doubt that these will be definitive photographs for us, our children, and our children's children. Sublime. Thanks Wendy.
Charlotte and Nick MacFarlane (Wedding, Copes Farm, Great Kingshill) Dear Wendy, we just want to say an enormous thank you for our stunning wedding photographs and for the effort you went to last night with the slide show, music, nibbles and bubbles to make it a wonderful experience reliving our wedding day. Nick and I were blown away with how you captured our day so beautifully and we felt incredibly emotional watching the slideshow. Thank you, thank you once again, you truly are a huge talent and I am so glad that we found you to capture our day!
Stephanie & James Dye (Wedding Royal Berkshire Hotel Ascot) We absolutely loved having Wedy as our wedding photographer. From the moment we met her we were blown away with her warmth and experience - she immediately made us feel at ease. During the wedding day she managed to get intimate pictures without us even noticing! She really blended in behind the scenes. When we received our wedding album we couldn't get over how beautiful the photographs are. James and I actually cried when we looked through them for the first time.. they are so beautiful! She has a very classic and elegant style, which we love and we had lots of amazing comments about how stunning the photos are. Thank you so much Wendy!
Joanna & James Harris (Baby portraits) We want to say a massive thank you for our beautiful photos - we absolutely love them! We've had so many compliments too and we really couldn't have asked for anything better! Thank you so much Wendy.
Lu and Ben Cox (Wedding, Monkton Barn) We fell in love with Wendy's work the first time we stepped into Monkton Barn, her beautiful studio set in the Chiltern Hills. Straight away, we had our minds set for her to capture our wedding day, and were pleased and relieved when she accepted our request. Wendy was easy and fun to work with and we loved every image she's captured. She has the great talent of making people feel relaxed and her pictures were natural and story telling. We are pleased to recommend her.
Gemma & James (Wedding Sir Charles Napier, Chinnor) Dear Wendy, Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for all your hard work at our wedding and in preparing our final wedding photos. We can't tell you how delighted we are with them - you captured the feel of the day and all of the highlights just perfectly - we could not have asked for more - thank you! We had the most incredible time at our wedding and we are so grateful for all the amazing memories you managed to capture for us. You were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish and you really helped us in making sure the day went without a hitch. So many of our guests have commented both on how beautiful the photos are and on how lovely you were on the day. We will certainly be recommending you to anyone we know who is looking for a photographer. Thank you again - we hope you manage to get some rest over Christmas! Best wishes for 2016, James and Gemma x
Rhian & Sam Dodson (Wedding Monkton Barn) A huge thank you to Wendy for capturing so many special moments from our big day. We completely underestimated how often we would want to look back at photos (and we only got married 2 months ago!) and are so glad we have so many to look at and share with friends and family. Best wishes to all future Wendy Aldiss brides - you're in good hands. Rhian and Sam x
Sarah & Ollie Sparks (Wedding Monkton Barn) From our first meeting with Wendy we knew she was who we wanted to spend our wedding day with. Ollie’s not one for having his photo taken and having someone who didn’t ‘force’ him to have too many staged photos was exactly what we were looking for. Wendy was accommodating to all our ideas including coming on the big red bus with us from the church to Monkton Barn! Everyone that sees our wedding photos always comments with the same thing…. ‘everyone looks so happy’! I put that down to not only the incredible day we created but down to Wendy’s brilliant photography skills. A heartfelt recommendation! Sarah & Ollie
Kaye and Henry Laithwaite (Baby portraits) Wendy, we just want to send a card to say thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of Ella. We love them, especially the ones in your garden. It's so special to have memories of Ella at that age. Thanks again. Kaye and Henry Laithwaite.
Noura Albazie (Portraits) It was great meeting you, the photo shoot was everything I dreamed it would be, for a start. Marlow was an amazing little town, your studio was very relaxing, the area around it was breathtaking and to top it All, you and your assistant were so fabulous and made us feel great during the shoot.
Anna Eckert (Portraits) Wendy, a massive thank you for the wonderful family portraits you have taken. You have managed to capture us all so well. A special moment in time and even the dog is behaving!
Rebecca & Mark Griffiths (Portraits) We truly had a wonderful time and the result is just "wow". Every photo is more beautiful than the previous one. They look far more beautiful than my actual wedding photos. I am sure we'll meet again in another photo shoot with the entire brood.
Abby Walters (Portraits) My young daughters and I had a weekday shoot with Wendy and were delighted with the results. She produced the most amazing photos, truly capturing their little personalities in a number of different settings. A present for my husband’s 40th birthday and we managed to compile our nine favourite photos in to a mounted frame, which looked stunning. Wendy helped us choose the frame and the best pictures that sat so well together. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish and we will recommend Wendy to all our friends and family.
Cath & Paul Soul-Williams (wedding, Court Garden House Marlow) We're so delighted that we chose Wendy to photograph our wedding. Right from our very first meeting we knew we were in good hands! Wendy combines outstanding professionalism and technical ability with a very friendly manner, putting everyone at ease. In her beautiful pictures, she captured the mood perfectly. She managed to subtly blend into the background to give relaxed and natural shots, just as we'd discussed prior to the wedding. She even managed to catch a shooting star in one of our evening shots! Following the wedding, our pictures were quickly available for us to view at our convenience, and once we'd chosen the ones for our album, this too was promptly compiled with care and attention to give a reflective storyboard of our day. In every way, Wendy provides an excellent service, and we can't recommend, or thank her enough.
Caroline and Jack (Portraits) Thank you so much for my pictures. They look stunning and I cannot describe how they make me feel. I will treasure them always.
Sarah Buckle (Portraits) Wendy finds the true essence of her subjects in her photography. In my case, she captured the naughtiness and innocence of my sons. The images she gave me live with me - they adorn my home and live on my work desk. If you choose Wendy to encapsulate your special moment you won't be disappointed - you will be thrilled!
Lauren & Andy Stevens (Wedding, Lillibrooke Manor) Thank you for all your help, support and brilliant work with our wedding photgraphy. You captured every little detail and the result was just what we had hoped it would be. Thanks to you we now have beautiful memories on paper that will last a lifetime.
Nichola & Kevin Lafford (Wedding, The Five Arrows Waddesdon) When selecting out photographs for our wedding, we were keen to find someone who would capture the romance and the atmosphere of the day. When we found Wendy we knew she was the one who would be able to meet our exacting standards. Her professionalism and understanding of our expectations made it well worth paying someone of this calibre. The album was absolutely stunning; we can not recommend Wendy Aldiss more highly.
Lindsey and Paul Martin (Wedding, Danesfield House) Wendy was the photographer for our wedding at Danesfield House in Marlow. She was wonderful, polite friendly and she captured the day without being obtrusive. She was in the right place at the right time to capture the most natural shots possible. Wendy completely understood what we were looking for, lots of natural photos of everyone having a great time and only a few group shoots. She delivered a beautiful set of images and we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.
Claire & Richard Sykes (Wedding, Notley Abbey)We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the album- thank you SO much! Both of us got very teary seeing the pictures and will definitely be taking the album with us over Christmas to show the families.
Gillian Hills (Wedding, Monkton Barn) I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for capturing the essence of Georgia's Wedding day in a calm unobtrusive manner and congratulate you on the wonderful photo's of Georgia. They reflect the pride and happiness I felt on their wedding day and the photographs capture humorous, sad and happy moments and are a joy to look at.
Sophie Thorpe (Portraits) Having used the very talented Wendy Aldiss twice now, for 2 very different shoots, I realise why she has the amazing reputation she has. Wendy did a family portrait for my mother's 70th, which was beautiful and more recently some studio shots of my daughter for a modelling agency. The studio shots were incredible. She has an informal and friendly manner, putting children and adults alike at ease. A consummate professional, who makes it all look so easy. I am sure she has a 100% satisfied customer rating!
Lynda Myles Till (Portraits) As an Ambassador and fundraiser for the charity 'Action for Children', I introduced Wendy to the charity ten years ago and she has since been a faithful and dedicated supporter, raising funds for disadvantaged children through her extraordinary talent as a photographer. I first met Wendy when she came to take photographs of my children as a birthday gift from a friend. She was unique with them, helped I'm sure, by being a mother herself. I had employed photographers before and nobody had managed to capture them quite in the same light. She was endlessly patient and entertaining bringing out humour and confidence. She continued to photograph them over the years. My son launched a career on the strength of a photograph she took of him at seventeen. We have recently moved house and had to scale our possessions down but we never considered not taking these pieces of history with us, which, encapsulates their lives.
Emily Shelford (Wedding, Danesfield House) We have such a huge amount to thank you for, I don’t think I can possibly fit it all in this card! Firstly, thank you for taking the most incredibly wonderful photographs – we will treasure them forever. There are so many wonderful ones that we are going to really struggle to narrow them down for the album. Secondly thank you for all the incredible hard work you put in on the day and also before and afterwards. You managed to get so many wonderful pictures but somehow remained in the background so that no one even noticed them being taken – quite a feat!.
