“We love the colourful and vibrant photos that PH Weddings took on our wedding day. Helen also made us feel comfortable as soon as we met her and is very organised, delivering our photos in a really timely manner. Helen and Paul had a lot of people to deal with at our wedding but delivered on all the photos we asked of them. Thank you PH Weddings!”
“Would recommend them to anyone! We chose PH Weddings because of the candid moments that they capture, the small looks and moments that other people might miss. You feel like Helen and Paul really enjoy what they do and they helped make our day even more special.”
“We can’t thank Helen and Paul enough for our wonderful wedding photos. My husband and I both don’t like having our photos taken but Paul and Helen both putus at ease and we both really enjoyed the engagement shoot as well as our wedding shots. The post wedding slide show was fabulous and it was like reliving the whole day over again. They aren’t intrusive on the day and it shows in our photos, all so relaxed and both of us having fun! We can’t recommend PH Weddings enough to anyone in the area! Thank you both once again xxx”
“What can we say about PH Weddings … They are the most kind, passionate and successful couple we know. Not only do they make you feel at ease on your special day, you don’t even know they are there. From the background they click away capturing the most stunning moments in what will be the best day of your life, made even more special when you see your gallery and the amazing work they do 🙂 we were left utterly speechless and cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us! I would highly recommend to anyone. A heart felt thank you from the new Mr & Mrs J Haigh Xx”
“I can’t been begin to describe how amazing Helen and Paul are. There photos speak for themselves! The emotion the photos of others weddings provoked could only mean one thing, book them! The emotions they capture in the photos are unlike anything I have ever seen. I still cry at my wedding photos.
I can’t recommend them highly enough. Helen was the sole person that kept me calm before I left the room to meet my husband to be. She was and important and cherished part of my wedding day from the moment she stepped foot in the room while I was getting ready. I can’t thank you enough xx”
“Trying to choose a photographer for your wedding is always hard, but Helen’s eye for the little details us Brides spend hours thinking about is what made me go and see her and Paul. I’m not one for pushy sales and she was so relaxed and friendly, so we booked.
The engagement shoot was definitely worth having- made us so much more comfortable to know how to be on the ‘big day’.
As for our wedding day- they were both amazing and captured everything I wanted. Nothing was too much trouble.
I am so happy with all of the photos and the album – I couldn’t believe how quickly it all arrived. Friends and family have all loved them and comment how there is a good mix of “posed” photos and then more relaxed/natural ones. I can’t recommend Helen and Paul enough, I will definitely use them again in the future.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to both of you for last night – it all went so well and you were so patient with us all – we’re not the most natural models! Can’t wait to see the results! Best wishes and thanks from the both of us Ian & Charlotte.
“Helen & Paul were fantastic on our wedding day, before and after. They were very unobtrusive and provided brilliant quality photos which captured the day perfectly. We could not be happier with the service we were given and the photos are the perfect memorabilia for our special day. The album is beautiful and very well made, which we love showing off to our friends! We could not recommend Paul & Helen enough as they made us feel very comfortable being snapped, they were very speedy in getting everything to us and the pictures turned out better than we could of imagined.” xx
Laura & Rob (November 2013)
“Helen and Paul are a lovely pair and really put us at ease for our big day. They took some beautiful photos, and the colours and lighting are just stunning. We have been really pleased with every aspect of the friendly and efficient service we have received from PH Weddings, and we would happily recommend them. Thanks again, Laura & Rob xxx”
Kerry & Lee (November 2013)
What can I say. Absolutely fantastic!!! Lovely people, absolutely fantastic quality!! Our photos and the album is so beautiful and such a lovely reminder of our day. Just cant recommend Helen and Paul enough!!! Thank you so much xxx
“We are absolutely delighted with the pictures you took.
We are amazed that you managed to get some half-decent pictures of the two of us – given that neither of us takes a good photo – an achievement indeed!
Best of all you managed to capture some of the magic we felt on the day. The endless happiness surrounding us but also the heartfelt emotion which comes across in many of the informal pictures.
Your pictures made us smile, laugh and also brought some tears to our eyes for the memories they provoked. ( One of Felicity’s sister’s had only recently been diagnosed with a serious life limiting illness and yet you took some extraordinary pictures of her looking well and so happy).
Thank you for providing us with such lovely lasting visual memories of our special day. We will treasure them always.”
Hi Helen and Paul, thank you so, so much for the hundreds of beautiful photos, we are absolutely delighted with them. Every aspect of your service has been wonderful, we can’t recommend you highly enough, thank you again, Catherine and Stephen, the VERY happy couple! Xxx
“We have been Extremely pleased with every aspect of PH Weddings. On the day of our wedding our main aim was to not disappear and miss out on our special day which Helen made sure did not happen. All the photos taken were fantastic and very creative. We could not have been more pleased with the service provided. Thank you again Helen for creating memories that can now last forever.”
“Thank you for the wonderful pictures, they are truly amazing”
Beth & Ian (September 2013)
“Paul and Helen’s photographs captured far more than we ever could have imagined of our wedding day. Looking through them not only brought back all the wonderful memories of the day (and a tear to our eye!), but we saw extra perspectives and moments that we weren’t able to see on the day. Their photos caught all of the aspects we had hoped – from the home made details, to the guests enjoying themselves and they even made the formal shots look fun and relaxed. Most importantly they are lovely, friendly people and were completely unobtrusive and discrete throughout the day. The quality of their photos is exceptional and their time spent visiting us in preparation and during the wedding day was incredible value for money.”
Katy & Mark (May 2013)
My husband and I were overwhelmed by the attention to detail given by Helen and Paul; before, during and after our wedding! From the initial discussion of our requirements, to the pre- wedding shoot, to the big day and all of the aftercare – we were delighted with their service! Helen and Paul were calm, patient, discrete, and professional and their work speaks volumes! Anyone using their service can see instantly their work is their life and they are perfectionists.
Our wedding album is one to treasure forever and the shots are simply stunning. They captured every moment of sheer happiness, delight and emotion and we cannot thank them enough for their hard work. We struggled to narrow down the shots for our album given how many stunning ones there were and we were given time, help and advice throughout, as well as some stunning prints to put on the wall as well as the album.
I would recommend them to anyone and have done so several times. We may be back for the baby shoots, who knows!”
Katy & Mark Allan xx
“We absolutely love our wedding photographs and have so many beautiful pictures to choose from. Thank you so much for capturing our day and all of the emotional moments so perfectly. The pics of us saying our vows are priceless! You were great to work with and your friendly and relaxed approach really put us at ease. Our album is amazing and so many people have commented on how wonderful it is, as well as all of the other little finishing touches that helped to make our day so very special.
Katie & Oli xx”
“We spent a lot of time researching photographers as this was high on our list of priorities. As soon as we met Helen and Paul we decided to book them for our wedding. Their work speaks for itself and they were both very friendly and put us at ease. They took time to put together a list of photos we wanted and discussing the best way to organise the photos and people on the day.
In the morning Helen came to take photos of me getting ready and Paul was with my husband. I cannot recommend enough having two photographers, the pictures of the ceremony were spectacular as there were two view points.
My favourite pictures were the couple photos after the ceremony. It gave us time alone as well which was an added bonus. The colours look amazing and some of the photo ideas were so original but not in a gimmicky way.
Everyone who has seen our photos think they look amazing and we were so thrilled with the photo album. I couldn’t recommend PH Weddings highly enough. Book them for your wedding and you won’t regret it!”
“Amazing photographer’s, Amazing photographs. When I met PH Weddings I felt very relaxed and comfortable and I knew from the start I wanted them taking my wedding pics, my wedding was very relaxed casual affair with a quirky twist and from looking at the way they worked I new the could capture the natural, unposed photos I wanted. It wasn’t all plain sailing though, a couple of weeks after meeting them Helen rang to say she was pregnant and that her due date was around the time of my wedding. They said they would understand if we wanted to go somewhere else and offered the deposit back, they also said they would get another photographer to come just in case Helen went into labour, we decided to stay with them and I’m so glad we did, Helen managed to make the wedding and despite being heavily pregnant you wouldn’t of even known they were there taking picture’s! I would recommend them to anyone, they are so passionate and dedicated to what they do.”
“PH Weddings are brilliant! They came to our rescue just a few weeks before our wedding after our other photographer let us down and with an amazing and great value package too. It felt like we barely saw them all throughout our wedding day, but they produced hundreds of incredible natural shots of everything we could have wanted and more.
Our only problem now is deciding which photos to put on the wall, they’re so good, it’s really difficult to choose!”
“We would recommend Helen and Paul to anyone, they are such a genuine, warm and friendly couple who have a quiet but phenomenal passion and talent for photography. Their pictures speak for themselves; they have managed to consistently demonstrate their own beautiful style which stands out from all the other current wedding photographers.
Our photos capture the story and more importantly all the emotions from the day, and all the details that made it unique to us. We barely noticed they were there through the wedding reception and the speeches but they captured it perfectly.”
“From day one I found Helen very welcoming and supportive. She helped me identify the ‘look’ I wanted from the days photos and how I would like this done. On the engagement shoot we were immediately put at ease and were allowed our own ideas to be put into practice (we were unsure how to do this ourselves).
On the day of the wedding we each had our own photographer which allowed our own experiences to be put into picture. We had our friends and family on the day photographed, so at ease and showing all the fun of the day exposed. The end results were so much better than we had expected and everyone so far has said the photo album has been the best they have seen.
Thank you both for the amazing experiences you have given us.”
“ Trusting someone to record our wedding was one of the scariest things until we saw phweddings.co.uk. We decided straight away we wanted photos like that.
Speaking to Helen and Paul we found they also offered a great service at a reasonable price. The pre-wedding shoot really helped us not to worry about having cameras pointed at us all day too.
At the wedding we got the small engagement photos on the tables which we hadn’t expected and was such a lovely thing to do – we find them randomly now at guest’s houses. The signed picture is also a great thing to have. We are so proud of our wedding photos as they captured the feelings of the day perfectly and vibrantly. And Helen and Paul are such nice people they could have been invited guests with cameras!! “
Sam & Dan (August 2011)
“Neither of us are particularly photogenic and dread having our photo taken, so our wedding day of all days we just wanted a few nice photos of us together! We really didn’t want an extensive posed photo set, and although we knew we would have the traditional family photos, we wanted the rest to just naturally capture our wonderful day. Paul and Helen provided just that for us, a gorgeous mix of the traditional photos with some fabulous reportage photography. We got just what we had hoped for, and so much so we were virtually unable to select photos for our album- there are just too many lovely ones we wanted to include!
Paul and Helen’s style is so relaxed we almost forgot they were there, they are such nice people who put you completely at ease- and nothing is too much trouble (including Dan going for a pre-wedding game of pool accompanied by his groomsmen and Paul!) Saying that they are complete professionals and we would like to thank them both so much for providing us with the perfect story of our day”
“We have some beautiful wedding photos thanks to Helen & Paul.
We really appreciate that they were so relaxed and easy going with us but yet totally professional.”
‘My husband and I were impressed by PH Weddings from the first time we met – they were very practical, creative and flexible. We were initially amazed by the great value of the wedding packages. Not only do you have full access to the electronic prints, but a range of album and photo options, along with an engagement shoot. This really did blow all other competition out of the water, especially given our budget. As we worked with Helen and Paul, we realised that we had made a great decision and that the quality was not compromised by the competitive price! Choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision that can make or break your day – we would whole-heartedly recommend PH Weddings. They took some fantastic photos while making us feel really comfortable (we both hate our photo being taken!) and really went the extra mile for us. We were really happy with both the service on our wedding day and the package of photos that we received. Thank you so much Helen and Paul!’
Louise & Andrew (July 2011)
“We had the most romantic and beautiful day of our lives and Helen and Paul managed to capture every second.
I was so nervous about having the day photographed and prayed every night that there would be just one photo that captured how much we love each other and our families…I didn’t get one, I got over 400!!! Choosing our favourites has taken months! You made everything so easy, even for photophobics like us!! I can’t say a big enough thank you!
From Louise, Andrew, the Friths, the Thicketts and all our guests!”
‘Before we even got to our wedding, we had a pre-wedding photoshoot to get us used to been photographed, it definately worked. The wedding day was made very easy and we didn’t have to think about Paul & Helen clicking away in the background, getting all the brilliant photos they did!
All the photos we got from both the pre-wedding photoshoot and our wedding day were so hard to choose from! Absolutely fabulous!’
Rachel & Nick (June 2011)
From our first meeting in Starbucks on a wintery morning to the delivery of our photos and album, Helen and Paul have been an integral yet unobtrusive part of our planning and our post wedding comedown. When looking for a photographer, we knew what we didn’t want rather than what we did…no formal portraits, no pictures in mounts, no shouts of ‘say cheese’, looking at the portfolio of photos that they had from previous weddings, and feeling like we were having a coffee with a mate was enough for us to call off our search; our wedding photographers had been found.
Superb reportage style pictures which really caught the essence and atmosphere of our special day, the added bonus of a getting to know you engagement shoot which our dog could be part of, we really cannot recommend them enough. The post wedding communication has been fabulous, the sneaky peek of 5 pictures prior to our honeymoon was a real tease, but gave us so much to look forward to on our return. Our album is something that we will look at and cherish for years to come and the prints now have pride of place on our walls – the perfect reminder of our perfect day!
“I have to confess to being a bit of a perfectionist, but I need not have worried about the choice of photographers for our wedding. Helen and Paul were great – we hardly knew they were there during our wedding day, but they somehow managed to photograph everything, including all of the small details.
The photos are beautiful and natural, and totally capture the atmosphere on the day. Many thanks, Helen and Paul!”
“Wedding photos last a lifetime, and we’re so happy with the ones taken by Helen and Paul that we’ll be able to look back on for many years to come.
The pictures are the perfect mix of relaxed natural pictures and the obligatory family group shots, which is exactly what we wanted.
We were so pleased with the final pictures, the style of photography and the more unusual shots. Thank you.”
“Helen and Paul photographed our wedding in October and religious deeming in July last year. They are both lovely and put us both immediately at ease. We particularly liked their reportage style. They documented our day perfectly. It was very nice to have Helen with myself and Paul with Ali the morning of the wedding.
They also included an engagement shoot as part of their package, which was fun and produced some excellent pictures, easing our tensions in front of the camera.
Our wedding photos were ready on our return from honeymoon, and did not wait long to receive our very professionally produced album. We would not hesitate recommending them to others.”
“Helen and Paul were recommended by some friends and they were exactly the type of photographers my husband and I were looking for when we were planning our wedding. The most important thing for us was that we wanted memories of the whole day and not just a few official pictures of the bride and groom.
Helen and Paul arrived early in the morning. Helen joined the girls, while Paul took some pictures of the groom and his crew before he set up the equipment in church. They both took fantastic pictures during and after the service, not just of us but also of the guests. When we arrived at the venue, Helen and Paul were already there and had taken pictures of the venue, decorations and flowers. Before we had our meal, we did the official pictures which my husband and I were dreading, but it did not take very long and we ended up with some lovely pictures of the two of us (believe it or not!) and of our family and friends.
However, what we love best about our wedding pictures, are the great snapshots Helen and Paul took of us and our guests during the day. Especially the pictures of the children are amazing. We also have some funny pictures of the disco later on in the night as Helen and Paul stayed until very late.
The next day, Helen put a few pictures of us online and we were so excited to see the them. We were able to look at all of our pictures a few days later and after our honeymoon we chose which pictures we wanted for our album. Helen created a stunning album which tells the full story of our day. Compared to other photographers, Helen was very quick with the order of pictures and the album and we were more than happy with the result”
All in all, I would like to say that Helen and Paul helped us to make our day very special. We were impressed with their professionalism and we can only recommend them”
Katie & Jack (June 2010)
“Having Helen and Paul to do my photographs was like having my best friends take them as they made us feel very comfortable and at ease.
Our pictures turned out fantastic and I wouldn’t change anything. I recommend Helen and Paul to anyone as they do a fantastic job at affordable prices.
A big thank you to Helen and Paul for everything you did to make our day special.”
Beth & William (May 2010)
“When we first started thinking about getting a photographer for the wedding our thoughts were firstly, we want very natural pictures – not staged or posed. Secondly, we were thinking we wanted someone who isn’t obvious, but who manages to capture moments but without putting a camera in your face, and thirdly, we wanted someone who would be with us for the whole day – from beginning to the end. We got all of that with Helen and Paul. In addition to that it’s fantastic as you have two excellent photographers – not just one. That meant that Paul could photograph the men getting ready, and Helen could be with the girls. Helen made me feel completely at ease – which is fantastic – as after all getting ready on your big day is quite stressful, emotional and intimate – but Helen couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable.
I hate having my photograph taken and I always thought we should have a photographer to capture the day – to help us to remember in times to come – but I never thought I’d love my photographs and want to look at them over and over again! How wrong was I!”
“Just looked at the wedding photos on your website! You’ve got a great selection there and seem to have captured every moment of the day with attention to small details as well as more ordinary events like Fran putting on her makeup which all adds up to the bigger picture. I know Fran and Scott are really pleased and will treasure the photos for ever.
Thank you so much from Dave and myself for being such a friendly, unobtrusive and obliging pair on the day, together with the happy fun times you spent with them in Sheffield city centre and in the Peaks”
“We first met Helen and Paul at Whirlow Wedding fair in 2008, we hit it off right away and we decided that they were going to be our photographers for our wedding in April 2009.
They did a great job and we still look at our photos to this day I even had a tiny album for my handbag made up. They went on to do my sisters wedding and several friends of ours too.
I would recommend them to anyone wanting a perfect wedding” xx
Julie & David (December 2008)
“We met Paul and Helen just weeks before our wedding, when the only thing we had planned was the date. From that first night, they were full of ideas, and really helped us to pull the whole day off. They helped us search for a venue, found floral arrangements we might use, and recommended everything from dress shops to cake decorators. They really knew the business and had a lot of contacts, which was extremely helpful for us, as we had no idea what we were doing.
On the actual day of the wedding Paul and Helen were really flexible and helpful. They met us in the Botanical garden, even though it was freezing outside and took lots of beautiful pictures there which were really important to us because that is where we got engaged. They went with us to the ceremony and when I saw the carousel outside were completely willing (and excited) to take some pictures there, even though it was not strictly in the plan. Paul was right at the front of the ceremony and managed to get lots of pictures from that angle that we never expected to have. It was really great to have Helen taking pictures at the same time because in the end if one of the pictures was taken at not quite the right moment, there was another photo of the same time.
We really enjoy our group photos, they are not stereotypical posed shots, but instead show us and all of our guests as we are, laughing, not all of us looking at the camera—it really seems to show the whole mood of the day and not just a moment in time. We really liked the way that Paul and Helen worked; they weren’t bossing us around all day to get the right shots, but rather unobtrusively taking pictures as we went about our day.
We really enjoyed working with Paul and Helen. They were a great addition to our day, they didn’t stress us at all, which is something that photographers can do sometimes, they were really flexible—going with us to the carousel and to take group shots at the stairs of our venue, and they were really friendly and great to work with.
Paul and Helen were a huge part of making our day just what we wanted it to be. We couldn’t imagine our wedding day going any better than it did.
Thank you for everything”
