Some Of Our Reviews

Katie & James

Matt and John were exceptional. They are a kind, friendly and professional duo who want to capture every moment for you. When looking back over the photographs, they have allowed us to relive our wedding day from different perspectives. They had great ideas, which also made it fun and were open to implementing some of our ideas. Thoroughly recommended!

Alex & Ben

Thoroughly impressed with Awaken Images. The fact that they provide two photographers allows precious moments to be captured that may not have been seen on the day by the Bride and Groom. Both father and son duo were very professional and knew exactly how to capture the images we desired. High quality images, would definitely recommend.

Rhona & Sam

I can't begin to recommend Awaken Images more. Couldn't be happier with their service. Not only is Matt a wonderful photographer, but the professional attitude and aftercare of both Matt and John is second to none.

 Having two cameras there catches both the structured shots and the candid photos that we all love. Overall, if you are looking for professional, reliable, talented photographers then I would highly recommend Awaken Images for your wedding.

Sarah & Ben

They were fantastic from the get go. They bent over backwards to ensure myself and wife had a fantastic day and that everything was captured. They delivered everything that we asked and more which made for some beautiful photos to remember our special day. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Absolutely superb.

Thaila & Sam

I can not rate these these two highly enough. Made the time to come and speak with us before even though we were all very busy. Photos are outstanding and we were stuck for chose because they were all beautifully edited and taken. 

Jade & Gavin

A pleasure to deal with, absolutely fantastic value for money, fitted in just like guests on the day. Contributed to the success and enjoyment of the day. Enthusiasm second to none. Two first class guys, nothing was a problem. Photos all look brilliant.

Heather & Carl

John and Matt made our experience of wedding planning very easy. As it was the first wedding both of us had been involved in having them there to explain and guide us on the wedding norms as well as helping us think of things that suited us as a couple. The photos we have received since our wedding have been amazing and they have really captured every part of our wedding and we love looking back at these and seeing the joy and emotion in ours and our guests faces

Lisa & David

From the moment we picked up the phone to enquire, to the big day itself, we felt we were organiaing our photography with friends, not just another photography company. From the personal meeting over coffee at our house, to our endless list of questions and requests, we really felt like we were listened to and on the day it all just felt so relaxed. By the end of the night we felt we were just saying goodbye to friends...and the photo's were brilliant too! Definitely recommended!

Katie & Dan

They were absolutely brilliant on the day, they helped us out (keeping people informed how we were getting on etc) I was even running quite late and we still managed to get all the pictures we wanted without taking up much time. And when needed I didn’t even feel they were in the room so we got some lovely natural pictures too. They were a pleasure to have there on our big day. The photos are brilliant and love looking through them
