Lovely thank you cards :):West Sussex Wedding Photographers

Good Afternoon Folks,

Today I thought I would share two thank you cards received this week; it so nice to receive some feedback from my lovely couples and their kind words never fail to bring a tear to my eye.

It is truly a pleasure to be part of such a special day when two people make a commitment to each other, and I feel so lucky to witness so much of the day and emotion.

Thank you once again for all your kind words; just need to compose myself now!!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend; no weddings for me this week and I am making sure that I am up to date with everything before my July weddings start in earnest. I have a bump shoot to edit and some albums to design, so I had better stop being so sentimental and crack on!


Kind words from Katherine's Mum - Katherine and Jason were married at Cisswood House Lower Beeding West Sussex

I received this lovely e-mail from Katherine's Mum; you can see some sneaky peeks on my blog post of Katherine and Jason's wedding at Cisswood House.

"Hi Claire
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how delighted I am with
the photographs. You really managed to capture the emotion of the day.
I would like to thank you and Lorraine not only for the photographs but
I was bowled over by your friendliness and help, it was like we had
known you both for a very long time.
Katherine and Jason are planning an afternoon tea with the family
tomorrow do look through them all.
Thank you very much, these will be treasured memories and a constant
reminder of the lovely day for a very long time to come.
Kind Regards

A lovely review from Nick and Jane who were married at The Copthorne Gatwick Hotel Copthorne West Sussex

From the moment we stumbled across Claire's website (Woodland Hill Photography) we noticed instantly the gulf in quality from the many other sites we visited, and upon meeting Claire for the first time, we had both made up our minds before we'd even left her house.

Claire is a lively (crazy??), enthusiastic and passionate professional who obviously oozes creative talent and is constantly dreaming up new shots with every blink... you can almost hear her brain continuously churning! The result is amazing and beautiful photography for which we will be eternally grateful as we look over our wedding photos. She has managed to tell the story of our whole day (and before with the pre-wedding shoot) with a superbly presented DVD and there were little touches such as cards on the tables with different images from our pre shoot.

I would find it hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't instantly connect with Claire who's enthusiasm draws you in, and I would advise going to see Claire on an empty stomach as the homemade cupcakes and minirolls (especially if you have children) will inevitably make an appearance.

There are so many photographers offering different packages, some doing the whole lot with albums for crazy cheap prices but I would urge anyone not to gamble with their special day. Claire keeps it simple and clear and even takes the time to learn the names of your guests to help the day run that much smoother - she'll even help you put your dress on. But above all, the quality, style and sheer talent is far superior to many other photographers and believe me, I've been to a fair few weddings recently!

Claire, we couldn't have been happier with the photos from our wedding but I think we already knew that they would be superb. You have a great talent and you certainly know how to work the crowd and organise everyone and this in turn made for a perfect, seamless day that ran like clockwork. We didn't have to worry once about time, running late or waiting about.

I could write all day about how amazing our wedding photos are but I will leave you with this: Claire doesn't just take photographs; she captures memories and turns them into art!

Thanks Claire
Nick & Jane (Wedding 22 October 2011)

A lovely testimonial

Good Morning,

I just wanted to share a lovely testimonial that was written on the reviews section of my Facebook business page. It is always lovely to read people's experiences of my work and the service I offer and they never fail to bring a tear to my eye. Thank you and your words really do mean a lot to me.

Here is the review:

We were married on 25th June 2011 and were fortunate enough to be able to have Claire and her assistant record our perfect day for us.

We looked at a relatively small number of photographers before deciding on Woodland Hill, simply because we didn’t need to look any further once we had spent a small amount of time in Claire’s company and seen some of her beautiful work – not to mention baking skills!

Claire’s obvious photographic talent is there for all to see, it is the less tangible talent that makes her so special. Her personality, sense of humour and passion make her so much more than our wedding photographer. She was our guest whose company we are so thankful to have had on our day (before our day and since our day).

We couldn't be more delighted with the outcome of our wedding photography - all the photos are beautiful and more than we could have ever imagined and we have such a wonderful record of our day. The album is unique and timeless and something we will treasure forever.

I am confident you will not find a more skilful, enthusiastic and passionate photographer who will strike such an instant rapport with ALL of your guests however long you look.

Our guests have even commented on how brilliant she was! She made us and guests feel happy and confident in front of the camera and being people who don't like having their photos taken we and they enjoyed every minute of it - especially the fun evening shots at the Rocks with the bridesmaids and groomsmen!

Worth every penny and so, so much more.

Thank you Claire for helping to make our perfect day just that.
