We weren't going to have a photographer, but we did, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. It helped make our special day perfect, with Shelly and Ian capturing all the important, special moments, plus more ... ie things the bride and groom don't always see or remember.
We would highly recommend Picture Perfect Weddings. From initial contact, pre-meeting, the day itself, and the quality and amount of photographs, to the production of our album and canvas ... fantastic in every way :-) The only problem we had ... too many excellent photographs to choose from. We have now purchased and received an album and a canvas ... again would recommend these the service and quality was perfect.
During the day Shelly and Ian were punctual, went the extra mile for us, managed the photo shoots in a friendly, easy going and professional manner. They kept us and our guests relaxed and smiling all day. Capturing all the shots, group photos we requested, and caught those quirky fun moments of the day (you just need to see the sample of photos on FB and web to see ... :-)
So if you are thinking, should I, shouldn't I get a photographer, like we did. Our advice would be, don't give it a second thought, you won't be disappointed if you chose Shelly. We got excellent value for money, fantastic pictures, which will give us lasting memories of our special day.
Huge thanks to Shelly and Ian

We have just received all of our photos from Michelle and I have to say both of us are really really pleased with them. I wanted a woman photographer as I had a bad experience with a man photographer with my first wedding, I felt he did not listen to what we wanted. Michelle was the complete opposite she made us feel so relaxed on our day and listened to all of our requests. All of our family & friends said how good she was. Would defiantly recommend her for any photo shoots.
Christine and Mike Spencer
Absolutely fantastic day, brilliant photographers, couldn't have asked for two nicer people. They definitely made my day extra special from start to finish, going above and beyond to cater for my extremely awkward guests and me :)
Photo booth was a blast and even my grumpy old guests managed to take part.
Would definitely recommend and use again should I re-marry lol.
Thank you for everything :)
Helen & John
Absolutely fantastic day, Michelle and Ian made it special for the happy couple from start to finish. Put them at ease straight away, and so organised, don't think they could have got much more into their day with us.
They catered for every need that we threw at them and everybody felt comfortable.
Photo booth was definitely a hit, even with the oldies.
Would recommend this couple to do your wedding or any celebration you might have, will use them again some day I am sure.
Thanks a lot for everything. X

I can't recommend them highly enough. Definitely book them because I know you will be 100% satisfied. Massive massive thank you to you both.
Picture perfect weddings photography are excellent at what they do, we have had only a sneak peek at our pictures up to now but even those are better than we could ever imagined.. The photo booth was a great party peace and talking point people just loved it! Even staying behind longer than they were meant to helping us capture the most spectacular moments of our special day, truly dedicated to making our day wonderful.

Had my engagement photoshoot today and absolutely loved it, had a really nice day! Nice and relaxed with no pressure to pose for the perfect picture! My little boy said his favourite part of the day was getting pictures with his ice cream! We literally can't wait and we're too excited for the wedding now.

We can't thank you enough for our engagement shoot, the photos are fantastic.
Your approach during the shoot brought out our confidence and helped us forget about our nerves, which has helped us to feel more relaxed about the wedding day. Thank you so much
Klark & Lee xx
Highly recommended! We got every thing we asked for plus more! 5* communication and very professional! Would recommend to anybody!
Michelle captured everything we wanted beautifully! The sneak peak she did for my husbands family in Australia was brilliant! And the rest were even better! Everyone loved the photo booth and was fab everyone had something to take away with them!! Brilliant day!
Amazing photographs took by an amazing lady - the warmth and care Michelle showed to us on our special day helped to make it perfect.
The photobooth was a massive hit with our guests - lots of dressings up outfits, our guests were even queuing for their turn!!
We can't thank Michelle enough for capturing the precious moments and beautiful memories and can't wait for Michelle to do our baby daughter, Tilly-Bee's Christening Pics xxx
Rachael and Jason Lee

Thank you to the both of you. You were amazing, you had everyone going where you wanted, the whole day was under control, thanks to you both. Xx
Gillian and Martyn
Picture perfect ..well the name says it all fantastic photos perfect in every way x
Professional, friendly and very accomodating. Would thoroughly recommend.
Great photographers, the photo booth is amazeballs! So many props.
What can I tell you about shell that you can't already see from the amazing pictures that she takes???
Well first off both her and her husband are such fun to have around - before our wedding she put us at ease with making sure she knew exactly what we wanted from our photographs (I did ask her to promise to make me 6ft and a size 8 but miracles like that were not actually needed after all lol)
I don't usually take good pictures, I hate my side on profile and had mentioned to shell that I am quite conscious whenever there is a camera out.
On the day Shell met me in the cars and her warm smile and professionalism confirmed that I had made the right choice.
Throughout the ceremony I hardly knew that they were there - quietly clicking away through all the 'quirky moments' Posed photos were done quickly and time was given to guests to take their own photos too.
After the ceremony Shell gave us a few mins to catch our breath and have a glass of Pimm's (a must!) then we were whisked off to the fishing lodge to have pictures taken in the beautiful surroundings of the Fisherman's retreat.
There were suggestions for various shots and some we went with and others we said no thanks and so a different suggestion was made instead.
The results are truly stunning and I am so happy with them. I cannot thank Shell from 'Picture Perfect weddings' enough We now have fantastic memories to keep and can't wait for the album - we still have the job of choosing which is going to be so difficult as there were nearly 700 photos to choose from - WOW!!!!!
Ruth & Stephen Camm
Would like to thank you you and your husband for all you did for us in sat and the pictures are stunning. Could not of asked for a better photographer xx
Mellissa & Michael
Fantastic, did a great job of organising guests, took the most amazing photos of our big day completely captured the moment for us! I would absolutely recommend for anyone's wedding as made our day even more amazing! And my album is absolutely something else never seen such high quality, everyone who sees it thinks it's amazing.
Thank you so much
Lisa & Darren
Michelle was great throughout our day organising our guests and getting the shots we required and more, capturing our day and our family in a truly magical way, and our album is just PERFECT, we could not have chosen better xx
Helen & David
Wanted to say how lovely you & Ian were on our wedding day - it did rain a bit but you still managed to get some great shots, obviously lots that I didn't see on the day so it brought it all back & I have had a few tears (happy ones!)
You knew how important it was that we got certain shots & you made sure you got every one and more.
You were a very important part of the day & we can't thank you enough - wish you had been on our honeymoon to take some there!!!
Ann & Keith
Thank you sooooo much. Best photographers, amazing value for money. Variety of packages, never looked back. Michelle is very professional but friendly right from the start. She is funny and easy going, which helps a lot on the day. Every shot was aimed for and got as best it could be. Me and my husband and both sides of the family were very happy with technique and Michelle. She is a master at getting the shots everyone wants but misses. Good value for money and exceeds what expected. Thank you so much Very highly recommended photographer for ANY event. Can't thank you enough. I will be booking her when another event comes round.
Will see you soon.
Nicola & Christopher Clarke
Thank you for all your hard work on our special day and being a big part in it you was there to take pictures and ended up dressing me haha fantastic pics that in years to come we can look back on and remember our special day and how lovely you were xx
Sara & Kevin
We are so pleased to have picked Michelle as our wedding photographer, after meeting her & Ian at the Bentley Brook Inn wedding fayre. Her personality shone through and we immediately felt relaxed and happy to put our memories in her trust.
The wedding day was fantastic; Michelle listened to our needs and they gave us both the formal and informal photos we wanted, finding settings we would never have thought of.
It was a major task choosing the photos for our album; we gave her our chosen 50 and asked her to arrange the album which she did professionally. We treasure this and never tire of looking at it.
Joyce & Tom x
Thank you for capturing some absolutely fantastic shots, you are warm, friendly, very artistic & thoroughly professional taking the photos we wanted and suggesting some we hadn't thought about!
Shell was not just a photographer, on the day she helped calm my nerves with her easy manner & helped with various other things she was not paid for!! Lol!! (Thanks again) She enhanced what was a fantastic day in a very unobtrusive way!! I would recommend Michelle in a heart beat - I was afraid that because she had brilliant prices that we would only get what we paid for, but I can honestly say we got a services worth thousands of pounds at a really reasonable price all because this wonderful lady loves what she does and doesn't believe in over charging her clients! The proof is in the pictures!! Amazing!
Jackie & Rob
Thank you so much for capturing our special day, you excelled yourself in your approach to capturing exactly what we asked for and more.
Both myself and Kirsty are extremely happy with what you've done, the hard part is now choosing the selected few pictures for the album from the hundreds of amazing ones taken.
Thank you again X
Kirsty & Jonathan x
I highly recommend Michelle as a wedding photographer. She is professional at all times and gets the best shots from your guests.
Michelle attended the ceremony and reception venues on the day of our wedding prior to our guests arrival, to capture the theme for my albums.
Michelle ensured I had every shot I hoped for and gave ideas for poses. I am truly happy with the service provided, as for our album really happy with how it has turned out, thanks for everything. It'll be treasured forever :-)
Sarah & Andy
Thank you so much for attending our wedding to photograph us on our wedding day, you were ever so professional and the crowd control came in handy too lol!
Mary & Warren
Shell snapped our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Her visions and ideas made the pictures 100% what we wanted, she allowed us the freedom have what we wanted but in a way that could be captured in the perfect moment.
thank you so much, we couldnt have asked for better, she was very professional and had great attention to detail.
Thank you very much for everything
Louise & Shantel
Thank you very much Michelle, the photo's you took of our wedding were great, you were well organised.
We would recommend you to our friends and family. Once more thank you very much for all your help. xxxxx
Florence & Miles
Michelle captured a very emotional day perfectly.
Before the day she met up with us to make sure she captured exactly what we wanted.
She & Ian were unobtrusive but got the job done with a mix of traditional shots, candid shots & ones that we requested. No one even noticed the candid shots being taken.
We could not have asked for anyone better.
Michelle was booked to cover the christening of our daughter; she & Ian were great, capturing pictures of guests informally as well as formally and provided us with some lovely images of the day.
We then had her to cover our wedding, this was going to be covered by a family member as our gift, unfortunately this we discovered would not be possible only days before the wedding was due, and fortunately being a mid-week wedding Michelle was available.
Once again Michelle's style of being almost invisible & capturing images that you do not realise she has captured as well as the ability to get just the right shots & angles for the more formal shots gave us hundreds of pictured to treasure.
Big thumbs up, we would use & recommend you every day of the week
Emma & Nick
We are so glad we chose you to document our day, you know what your doing are relaxed & made us feel like you were a friend not someone we had employed.
The meeting we had beforehand put our minds at ease & you answered all our questions & took on board what we did & did not want from our images.
The almost 1000 images that we got were superb, it was a bonus to get them all in both colour & black & white & it took us a while to sort the ones for the album.
Thank you so much for making the day flow with ease.
Brian & Angela x
Thank you so much for our capturing our precious memories of one of the happiest days of our lives. Each picture holds its own moment with fondness.
Nothing was too much for you. You took great pride in your work, and it showed. We felt you were more like a guest than our photographer; you made everyone feel so comfortable. Even our little boy posed for you and that is a rarity!
Anyone thinking of using you for their special day, from us you come very highly recommended. Beautiful photographs and great price too. Couldn't of asked for more...
Love Cat & Jeff xxx
Thank you so much for doing our wedding for it, it was clear from the fact you were organised well in respect of time etc that you had done as you said you would at our meeting & had everything planned for us, getting us all to the town hall for pictures, arranged guests for specific pics and getting everything done well within the time allowed.
The fact you went the extra mile delivering our album personally the night before our honeymoon, - as the post had returned it to you as post man could not find out house - as you promised we would have before we went away.
The home visit to get to know us so it wasn't awkward on the day made us feel relaxed with you, add that to regular contact up to and after the day plus the fantastic pictures you took of us and our guests make looking back on that day even more special.
Thank you so much for everything
Elaine & Will xx
We cannot find words to express how we feel about the fantastic images that you shot of our wedding! We knew we would like you from our first meeting which is why we changed from the half day package to the full day and we were not wrong or disappointed at all.
You made sure that everything we had stated we wanted at our meeting and more was photographed and the fact that many of the images you took that day remain private to us only just makes your pictures all the more special, its up to us what we share with family and friends.
Your relaxed nature, especially with the children, made the whole day run smoothly and all our guests commented at times they forgot that you were there.
Once again thank you so much for all you did.
Emilia and Mario xx
Michelle was recommended to us when the photographer we had booked did a runner with our money.
After seeing some of her work we knew her informal style suited how we wanted our pictures to be as so took booked her for the most that we could afford to at such short notice.
Michelle was FANTASTIC, she met with us and laid our fears to rest, she spoke to the vicar and cleared with him where she would be able to go and where he preferred her not to and even went to meet the owners of our reception venue even though we were uncertain if we would get any images there in the time we had.
On the day everything went better than smoothly, the images were given to us on disc within a week and captured every moment of our special day, it still brings tears of joy when we look through them and the funny moments captured from the reception still have us in stitches.
Thank you for rescuing our special day.
John & Claire x
Having been let down by a photographer who had vanished with full payment we were apprehensive about booking another & cost was quite an issue for us.
Michelle was fantastic, she put our mind at ease beforehand & come the day it was clear that she had everything planned in her mind as to where certain pictures would be taken & how the images would look. Even the meal being served 30 mins early did not rattle her; she had her list of pictures we wanted taking & went through them quickly but somehow still getting the mood & the essence of the day, and then took extra pictures of the speeches.
Thank you for the fantastic memories of our day
