The venue was booked, wedding dress sorted and now the other bits. I asked Georgie what I could do and she said we need a photographer. I was impressed with the way you presented yourself, I found you through Google. I did not know at the time how much of an impact this decision could have, the importance of capturing the perfect day professionally was distorted by the thought that I needed to find someone who could take some pictures. Thankfully I chose the best, but I could be laying low now if my initial instincts had been misguided rather than basking in the glory. To be honest I feel a bit smug that I found you and the resulting ‘perfect memories’.
Couples should not think twice about whether to commission you to capture their special occasion, you are up there with the top value decisions that I have made in my life. The pride I had walking Georgie down the aisle to meet Ricardo is a once in a lifetime privilege and having a friendly yet totally professional person in charge of capturing the moment was very special. I would highly recommend you to anyone considering who to trust in making this ‘bigger than you think’ decision having experienced your results.
Thank you so much for making the perfect day last with a lifetime of wonderful reminders.
Andrew and I spent considerable time selecting a wedding photographer and have been absolutely thrilled with the exceptionally high quality of photos that you have captured of our wedding day.
You struck perfectly the delicate balance between ensuring all our wish-list photos were taken whilst maintaining the jovial mood of the occasion. Our large group photo demonstrates so clearly your ability to 'direct' guests without losing the atmosphere and your eye for detail ensured that every single face was clearly visible and facing the camera.
At all stages of the process, we found you to be highly personable, professional, an excellent communicator and above all, an outstanding photographer. We now face the unenviable task of selecting our images for the album - all 600 plus photos are stunning and an instant reminder of the wondrous day we all had.
Dear Mark, Jonathan and I are overjoyed with our beautiful photographs from our wedding at the Dairy, Waddesdon. You have not only captured the beauty of the venue but you have captured the essence of our family and friends. Your photos show what an amazing and fun day we had. You gave us confidence from our early meetings and emails that we would not need to worry about the photographs but they have exceeded our expectations. The formal photos balance with the fun informal pictures added with the touches of the venue which will remind us in the future of what a great day it was. We didn't even realise you had taken some of the photographs and they were such a surprise to see. Thank you Mark for being so lovely, relaxed, helpful, professional and unobtrusive and for providing us with an incredible reminder of what an outstanding wedding we had!
We first met Mark at a wedding fair at Missenden Abbey in Buckinghamshire. He was actually the first photographer we met and after listening to him at the wedding fair we were very impressed with what he had to say, together with his brochure and website. We had total confidence in his expertise.
We met with him prior to the event to talk through the day, and the kind of shots we wanted. We particularly wanted photos that were not too formal and more relaxed.
On the day, he got straight into shooting and in a friendly way managed the shots. He was very efficient in organising the group poses, and very good at getting shots of us easily with our family and friends. I can honestly say from the brief we had a couple of days before that he knew exactly what we wanted and exactly where to photograph us at the right times.
We are now in receipt of the photographs he took, and we are very pleased with them. He also enhanced our favourite photographs to an even higher standard, but to be honest we thought the they were perfect as they were on the gallery. He also offers extra services which include albums, or you can just opt for all the photographs on a USB, which was perfect for us.
We would say that he offers a package to suit all needs and pockets.
We would not hesitate in recommending Mark Sisley for any photographic occasion.
A huge thank you to Mark for your superb photography at our wedding in August.
From our experience of liaising with Mark over the last year, we not only knew that we would have beautiful photographic memories of our wedding, but also that Mark's professionalism and organisational skills would contribute to the smooth running of the day.
The relaxed pre-wedding consultation gave us an opportunity to discuss all our options, with many photographs and album styles to look through and guide our discussions. On the day, Mark recalled these details, organising guests for group shots and spotting opportunities to capture some of the types of images we had discussed. Mark also worked beyond his booked hours to take some beautiful night shots and photograph our late evening entertainers - much appreciated.
Despite thinking we are a rather camera-shy couple, the photo shoots are actually one of our fondest memories of the day! We were made to feel very comfortable and had fun seeking out imaginative backdrops and poses throughout the venue (including a touch of 'rock climbing' in the venue's secret garden!) Our guests continue to comment on how professional and amiable Mark was.
It was a real pleasure to have you share the day with us - thanks again.
We spent a long time researching the perfect photographer to capture the pictures at our Cliveden House wedding. Then we came across Mark Sisley's website. The photos looked amazing, and his website was very professional.
We arranged for a meeting at his studio to view his portfolio and to discuss our big day. His photographs were fantastic, plus he has a lovely personality, my now husband and I warmed to him immediately.
He has taken the most amazing photos capturing every moment and more, and his work was to very high standard. All our guests thought he was fabulous, and they loved how passionate he was about his work.
If you want a top photographer for any occasion we highly recommend Mark Sisley. We couldn't of found a better person for the job!
We would first like to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding day an occasion we will never forget.
We first met you at a wedding fayre and immediately felt you were the photographer for us, and boy were we right. Despite having a very relaxed, friendly and laid back personality you immediately took control of the 100-strong wedding party in a very professional manner.
At both the church and the wedding venue, Taplow House, you selected the most perfect scenes and backdrops to create images of the day that are unforgettable. The clarity, sharpness and light effects in the photographs are the best we've ever seen and we remember waiting for clouds to pass over in your quest for the perfect picture.
As at most weddings there were children, and sometimes children do not easily pose for the photographer but with your friendly disposition, they were soon smiling and eating our of your hand.
We particularly liked the casual photographs you took during the evening when people were not posing but just acting naturally.
All we can say is that you did a great job for us and we couldn't be more grateful.
For us, a photographer for our wedding was a must, however we both hate having our photo taken. We were both apprehensive about our initial meeting with you to discuss our needs, but within seconds of meeting starting you had put us at ease. You explained your approach to photography and it was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere without too much formality, but still to have our memories captured.
We found out about you through our venue, Hampden House, and they were delighted that we hired you. Having a photographer that knows the venue as well as yourself allowed us to have truly memorable photos which encompassed the historical architecture and the striking grounds. You knew exactly what locations within the venue worked best and made use of the spring / early summer blooms to our advantage.
Many of our guests commented how efficient, polite and professional you were and how you kept the whole day flowing to work with the schedule that was needed for the day to run smoothly.
As promised, access to our photographs arrived whilst we were on honeymoon. They were beautiful, and as two people who hate having their photo taken, there are hundreds of photos that we both love.
