Wow thank you Simon for doing such an incredible job at our wedding. We LOVE the pictures which you got to us so quickly and we are amazed at how you managed to move around and capture the scene from so many different angles! You also saved the day with makign sure my wedding dress didnt get mud from the car - thank you! Everyone has commented how brilliant the photos are and how hard you worked. We can't thank you enough :) Thank you for being part of our day x
If you're getting , married in the Oxford area, we would both absolutely recommend Simon to be your photographer. We had a great pre-wedding photo shoot, which normally isn't our thing, but it was great to do to both get to know Simon and prepare your smile! He is a great communicator during the run up to the day and on the day he really put us both at ease. The main thing was that you could trust him to know the photos would be amazing (especially the black and white) and didn't have to worry on the day about ensuing he gets the right shots as he totally knows what he's doing! I've recommended to my friends!
I would highly recommend Simon to all family & friends! Simon did an absolutely outstanding job on the day, very professional but same time brilliant with all the children. The photos came out better than we could have ever expected. Thank you again Simon, you truly captured our wonderful day.
We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos; Simon captured every moment and his attention to detail was fantastic. From the very first meeting Simon made us feel completely at ease with him and we knew straight away that we wanted him as our photographer. Simon offers the complete package: amazing talent and true dedication to his clients.
From our first meeting with Simon we knew he was the right choice for us - he was friendly, knowledgable and not at all pushy. Simon made us feel totally at ease during our engagement shoot, getting us comfortable with his style, which led to us to us getting some wonderful images.
Simon was a massive help to us not only on the day but also in the weeks and months leading up. He was always available to field questions and even took the time to visit the reception venue and church with us as he had not shot a wedding at either before.
Simon offers a very professional service accompanied with a keen eye for detail. He captured all aspects of our big day perfectly in a unobtrusive, unique fashion. We would highly recommend Simon and would definitely use his services again for another event!
We met Simon at a wedding fair and straight away realised that his photos had something that we hadn't seen elsewhere, those special moments often missed! Simon was great on the pre wedding engagement shoot and made us feel at ease and had such a great time, we were so glad that we picked him. The photos were excellent and we even had one for people to sign on the wedding day. On the day Simon was very organised and was very patient hoarding the family rabble into order for the fantastic photos he then took. He captured so many photos of the day that we otherwise would have missed, especially those special moments that aren't posed for.
All in all we cannot recommend him enough, very professional takes great pride in his work and most of all took the stress out of organising the photos.
I have been working in the wedding industry for 10 years as a wedding florist, four years ago I first met Simon Murdoch whilst working together in a styled shoot at a local venue. I thought I would drop the flowers off and enjoy the rest of the day off....Simon worked throughout the day with all of the individual suppliers ensuring the light and position was perfect for each shot so Simon was always known, to me, as the perfectionists who made me work all day! Since then I have happily worked alongside Simon in various weddings.
So, when Stuart proposed to me on Christmas day an obvious photographer for us to go and visit was Simon, the perfectionist!
We went to visit Simon in his home and decided his natural style was perfect for us alongside the price and value for money.
Both myself and Stuart are not keen on posed shots and are rather camera shy, we also have three young children, all of the above I felt would mean our photographs would be compromised. I couldn't have been more wrong.
Throughout the day Simon was always 10 steps ahead and taking shots of things before we noticed they was happening. He was discreet, polite and a pleasure to spend our day with.
4 days after the wedding on honeymoon our gallery was ready to view and I can remember how thrilled I was with the images. There was a huge selection of detailed floral shots for my portfolio, a lovely selection of images of our three children and an amazing selection of pictures of our amazing day.
I can highly recommend Simon and the service he provides, despite knowing me for a few years Simon treated me like all of his other brides. The photos are treasured from our big day and will be enjoyed by us and all of our guests for years to come.
Simon is a fantastic photographer who takes so much pride in his work. He truly does take beautifully natural photographs and really captures the mood and feeling of the wedding day. When we saw our photographs for the first time several of them brought a tear to my eye! Simon's discreet nature also makes him a pleasure to have as part of the wedding day and he works so hard to ensure he gets the images you want. We have had so many compliments on our photographs already and I really can't recommend him enough!
I met Simon at a wedding fair at the venue and was immediately impressed with the style of his photography, unique images which seemed to capture everything about the day, not just the obvious shots. He has a passion about his craft which came through strongly in all our interactions - he was courteous and professional at all times.
His knowledge of the venue was invaluable, he clearly knows all the best places to take the best images, and was able to guide us to make the right choices on rooms, layout etc. On the day, he was amazing, almost unobtrusive but also omnipresent ! We took only a few group shots and left the rest to Simon - the results are fabulous. We genuinely believe that you can feel the spirit of the day through his images, they resonate with life.
I have always been told that finding the right photographer for your wedding was the most important choice to make - Simon was perfect and we would recommend him to anyone for your special day.
Simon was fantastic for our day. He was there at all the right times but totally unobtrusive. He captured the day in "natural" photography rather than strict formal shots. He was charming and made me feel totally comfortable when photographing me getting ready. All the guests commented how professional and discrete he was. He did our pre wedding shoot and was happy to take photos of our dogs which are a major part of our life. He was quick to respond in emails and very happy to advise and adjust as required. I can't thank him enough. The photos are a true memory of a magical day.
