a groom crying happy tears on his wedding day

Kind Words From Our Couples

We love it that so many of our wedding couples send us thank you messages online, cards in the post and even the odd thank you cake, bottle of wine, or savoury treat – we love you all!

Here are a few of the message that we’ve received recently.

"From the moment Ben walked into my room where I was getting ready to introduce themselves, I knew we had chosen our photographers wisely! (well actually we decided it was definitely the right decision when we received the most amazing sponge cake and chocolates through the post prior to our wedding lol) … they were both so friendly, their sense of humour was just like ours and we felt that we could just be ourselves around them and we didn’t worry about our ever so slightly embarrassing family. Really cool people! It didn’t once occur to us that we had two strangers at our wedding, they were just like our friends / guests and it was a true pleasure to have them there! All of our guests commented how lovely you were and how much they enjoyed meeting you both! They weren’t just our photographers they were our crying baby soothers, our bouquet holders, my dress adjusters & my hands to help me through the muddy grass in heels … these guys went above and beyond their job description and for that we are extremely grateful! You both had some fantastic ideas for some unique shots. You captured and created some very special moments that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We cannot praise you enough … I could go on and on about how happy we are that we chose you to capture and be a part of our special day! From the moment we made first contact to enquire about booking you, the beautiful yummy treats in the post prior to our wedding, receiving the text message of support the night before to relieve my nerves, to the incredible job you did on our big day … all of it was PERFECT! If anyone is considering HBA Photography for their wedding then DO NOT hesistate! You will not be disappointed!!! Thankyou to Hannah & Ben! True gems. Chris, Lexy & Mia x"

"Apart from our choice of spouse, booking HBA Photography was one of the easiest decisions for our wedding day! The photographs on their website speak for themselves, they are absolutely amazing and everything we wanted. It’s easy to see from their gallery that they are fantastic photographers but when you meet both Ben and Hannah you soon realise they are fabulous people too. From Hannah sending us a homemade treat to help with the wedding planning, to Ben texting and asking if we needed an emergency chocolate bar on the morning of the wedding to calm any nerves, they really are a lovely couple (and obviously understand our love of food haha!). We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photographs, we couldn’t have asked for any better. Despite the almost constant rain, Ben still managed to get some lovely confetti shots and whisked us off the moment there was a break in rain so we could get some photos outside. They worked non-stop all day and it’s not just us who think they’re awesome, we’ve had so many compliments from our friends and family too commenting on how hardworking and friendly they are. We had such a fun time with them which really shows and it was lovely sharing our day with them. If anyone is considering HBA Photography for their wedding, book them! You won’t regret it! Ben and Hannah – we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us, we love absolutely every single photo. You’re both wonderful people and very talented, thank you so so much. Mr and Mrs Davies x"

"From the moment we first met, we knew HBA were the ones for our special day! They really did make you feel so relaxed. We felt, as a couple that we had known them for years. After the first meeting Hannah and Ben kept in touch, keeping us all updated with all new products and information about our wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble for them no matter how demanding we were! (We had found a location near a lake, which we thought, would be beautiful for photos) They got so involved with every idea we had and was even going to meet up before he big day to look around! We really did feel we had made the best choice in HBA due to there down to earth nature and modern approach to photography. They listened to what we wanted and advised on new approaches in photography to make our album up to date with a contemporary feel. The morning of the wedding and the rain was pouring! Hannah and Ben gave many different options to have photos and totally relaxed me (I had every faith in them) the rain thankfully stopped just before the ceremony and Hannah and Ben were so excited to go to the lake, they quickly whisked us off to the lake. Hannah and Ben are the most professional people we have ever met with a great eye for location and romance. They will always go that extra mile. They made us feel so relaxed and didn’t feel like the photos took over our day. All our guests were all complimenting how lovely and friendly they were. We are so happy with the level of service we received and will definitely be recommending."
