My wife and I knew how important our photos would be to us, so we did quite a lot of research to find someone that we could really trust with such an awesome responsibility on our big day. We wanted to capture the story of the day and the emotion, rather than lots of posed photos, so we were really drawn to the documentary style that Carol and Paul do. Once we met them, we knew that they understood what we wanted. They 'got us' (and we 'got them'). At our first meeting we spent more time talking about gin and wine than anything else :-).
We put our complete trust in Paul and Carol and they didn't let us down. Their unobtrusive approach works perfectly, blending in and capturing what is going on. On the day, they were really flexible, adapting to what was going on around them. They were basically guests at our wedding, which made everything feel so natural. The only thing I am a little sad about is that we don’t have any pictures of them… because in my mind, they were such an important part of the story of our wedding day!
Thank you for the fantastic review Paul. As soon as we met and started talking wine and gin, I knew we'd all get on. Wedding Photography is about so much more than simply taking photos at someone's wedding. It
Thank you for the fantastic review Paul. As soon as we met and started talking wine and gin, I knew we'd all get on. Wedding Photography is about so much more than simply taking photos at someone's wedding. It really helps to have our couples be 100% relaxed with us during the big day. That way, we just blend into the background and are never intrusive. That allows us to capture truly natural images.
We spent a long time researching wedding photographers and we could not have been happier with the photographs produced by Paul and Carol. Everything from the prior communication, quality, their individual styles and their presence on the day was fantastic; their top of the range cameras meant we couldn't even hear the photos being taken, a factor we hadn't previously considered.
Alongside the candid shots of our guests, we had some couples photographs towards the end of the day when the light was beautiful and the guests were enjoying a drink. These photos are simply stunning and will be treasured. This was the reason we chose Paul and Carol - so much experience and the ability to give direction. We felt at ease and knew there and then that we'd made the right choice! Thank you for producing such wonderful photos of our day - we cannot recommend Tansley Photography enough!
Thank you for the lovely review Sophie. We both loved capturing your wedding day for you. The portraits in the vines, were so worth spending a few minutes on. Some of my favourites of 2019. If anyone would like

Paul and Carol created an absolutely wonderful set of memories of our wedding day, which we will treasure.
On the day itself, they were kind and relaxed. They fitted in around us and our families. They captured lovely moments throughout the day without us noticing and without any staging. Very impressive. They made a great team, being in different places around the venues to capture different events and angles.
It was clear that afterwards, they had also done a lot of work to put together a really meaningful album which picked out key events and told the story of our wedding day. I was really impressed that without direction from us they had picked up quickly on who our closest family and friends were and made sure that there was at least one great shot of everyone really special, some great candid ones of people who normally hate having their photo taken and pull terrible camera smiles. This was a real surprise and delight when we looked through the full album afterwards.
I would absolutely recommend Paul and Carol to others who want natural, but fantastic quality photos. I'm so glad we found them and have these memories forever.
Thx Ellie, it was a pleasure for us to capture your winter wedding at Great Fosters in December. I've just uploaded your Sparkler pic as the banner image here - looks so good.

Paul was amazing throughout the whole process - we contacted him VERY close to the wedding date as we only decided to get a photographer very last minute. He was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and gave us all the info we needed. On the day itself, he was excellent - constantly moving around to get really natural photos, we were really surprised to look through the photos afterwards to see just how many he'd taken. He also was happy to do some posed family shots for us too. The photos themselves are beautiful - a mix of black and white and colour - and all of really good quality. Thanks very much Paul, you captured our day perfectly, and we'd definitely recommend you to anyone needed a wedding photographer
Paul was fantastic from start to finish. We needed someone who was able to accommodate some uncertainty about the wedding date due to international visa processing issues. He was so flexible but professional, and stayed in touch throughout the time leading up to the wedding. On the day itself he was very personable and easygoing. He did everything unobtrusively, and we wound up with a portfolio of natural, expressive shots. We can't stop staring at the pics honestly! All of our guests' personalities really shine through the pics, in such a beautiful and flattering way. We are so happy with our choice.
From start to finish Paul was exceptional! When we began the process of searching for our wedding phtographer we were bith overwhelmed with the amount of choice available! We managed to narrow it down to 2 and decided to go with Paul for a number of reasons - his style, the galleries were incredible, his reviews - the highest on google and his helpfulness- i was emailing with endless questions and Paul amswered them all honestly and fully. I met with Paul a few weeks before the big day to discus things and he opened my mind to things i did not even consider! I left the meeting having more of an idea how the day would go and what sort of time scale i could expect for group shots etc. On the day Paul arrived where i was getting ready, his collegue at the venue with my husband and they just went to work. I genuenly have no idea how they got half the shots in our wedding album as i just dont remember seeing them! We got married in late December and still had our first look gallery early January! In the end we recieved just under 700 shots and i must have looked through them 700 times! Paul captured moments i did nit even remember - they are purely magical!
