FAYE AND THOMAS
What can I say… Craig is the most amazing, funny, friendly and talented guy! I first met Craig at a wedding show around 3 years ago, loving his vibe and eating one of his camera shaped cookies I knew I wanted to have him photograph our wedding! We booked him after securing our venue but had to postpone 3 times!! Each time Craig moved our dates easily enough and reassured us along the way. Fast forward to just 2 days ago and he arrives at the venue to finally photograph our perfect day! He interacted with the guests, oozed passion and excitement and got some incredible snaps capturing moments perfectly! We have already seen our preview & cannot wait to see all our photos! Craig it has been an absolute pleasure! It was like having an extra friend at our wedding! I really hope we see you again! Or I’ll have to plan another event just to hire you!! In your own words… you smashed it!!!!
ALISON AND MARK

HELEN AND ADAM
From the moment we met Craig, we knew we had to have him as our photographer! We both clicked with him and the conversation flowed with ease, he is so easygoing! Craig has supported us through our 7 cancellations and finally managed to photograph our 8th wedding last weekend. The communication beforehand was great and I felt like everything was in hand. Craig was organised and ready for me to arrive at the venue, he put me at ease, nothing was too much trouble and he made our guests smile, Craig became a part of our day! Craig had a sample of photos ready within 24 hours of leaving our wedding and all the photos ready within one week (even though he has a newborn baby), the photos are lovely and really capture our day. We set Craig the challenge of getting one photo of us that we both like (as we both hate photos of ourselves) and can safely say, Craig SMASHED IT!!!! We will genuinely miss Craig as we feel like he has become a friend over the last two years.
JENNIFER AND PHIL
What can I say about Craig? From our first meeting we felt relaxed with him and his wife, it was important that the we were both happy with the person having such a big role in our day. Craig has such a happy demeanour and friendly personality you can't help but smile and be happy in his company. We had a rough start with planning our wedding and Craig joined us for planning meetings and helped with ideas, he came to the church for our run through and was so respectful of the church and Priest. Nothing seemed like too much for him and communication was exceptional, to the point if he needed time to reply fully I wasn't left wondering.
On the day he was prompt and well dressed as was his lovely wife and our second photographer, they are a splendid team to have and all of our guests complimented us on their friendly and professional manner. As for our pictures they are outstanding! They really captured our day and characters and gave us lasting memories of the love and laughter shared. Craig was more than just our wedding photographer, he was a friend and my wedding Guardian Angel! I'm already planning our next mission x
NADJA AND THOMAS
We could not recommend Craig enough! We have the most beautiful wedding photos and couldn’t be happier. He captured everything we cared about most including our fur baby. Our guests loved Craig and felt comfortable with him photographing them! We are completely happy with the end product, our walls are filled with Craig’s photography. We recommend a pre-wedding shoot - we had amazing photos for our save-the-dates. If we ever need a photographer again we will be contacting him again !! Thank you to Craig for capturing memories that will last a lifetime x
CHARLOTTE AND ROB
Craig was our photographer at our wedding yesterday. It’s not even been 24 hours since he finished capturing our day and he has already put together some preview photos and a video with our first dance music in the background! Amazing! He promised a wow photo for our living room wall and he’s already delivered! We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos Craig! We know you will have smashed it!
He really cares about capturing the best moments of the day and about providing lasting memories. It was an absolute pleasure to have him throughout the day and he made us laugh so many times!
It’s hard to choose a photographer you can trust to capture one of the most important days of your life but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Craig! Thank you so much
SAMANTHA AND GARETH
Craig photographed our wedding. He was brilliant. Made us feel at ease and all our guests are still singing his praises. He #smashedit.
OLIVIA AND NATHAN
I can't keep count of the amount of times people said to us how amazing Craig was! He made the day so much fun for everyone there and I can't imagine my wedding day without him there! It felt like he was a guest! He captured the most amazing moments and the photographs are all amazing!
Thank you so much Craig
BECKY AND GARY
We chose Craig for our wedding photography and we’re really happy we did. Good price but much more than that too. Really nice and friendly, making everyone feel comfortable during the day and could not be happier with the resulting photos now we’ve had them back. Highly recommended.
KIRSTY AND BENJAMIN
From the get go Craig made us feel so at ease and confident that he would be able to capture the very best moments of our wedding, and he definitely did! Nothing was too much to ask from him; you can really tell he has passion for his job which makes him an absolute pleasure to work.
Usually we are both quite awkward in front of the camera, but Craig made us feel (and more importantly look!) relaxed and happy! He was always asking questions about what we wanted and pitching his own ideas, all while having a laugh with us and our guests. We were also so impressed by how quickly he has managed to turn the photos around, being able to show us previews in less than 24 hours which was amazing!
Our day was absolutely perfect, and I am so so so glad that we will be able to look back on our lovely photos and be able to remember every moment and emotion for years to come. Thank you Craig 😘
JESSICA AND DAVID
Just received our photos and "Yea Boi, you got it".
Met Craig at a wedding fayre after seeing His work and loving it. Was so happy He was available for our big day. From start to finish He has provided an incredible service.
He did everything we wanted and more with plenty of laughs along the way.
Cannot recommend Him enough!
Not only did we find an awesome photographer, we found a friend.
Thank you Craig x
KAYLEIGH AND AARON
Although Craig was snapping away with his camera all day long, he felt more like a guest than a photographer! He was so enthusiastic and got everyone laughing during the formals which may be tiresome when all people want to do is get to the bar!
Having seen my preview shots, I know I made the right choice. He said he wanted to do us proud and he really has! Top bloke!
KRISTI AND STUART
Thanks for putting everyone at ease and making the photos fun! We love the pics!
Best wishes, Kristi and Stuart
SUZANNE AND SERGEY

We were really glad to have met him and have him with us on the day and we love our beautiful photos :-)
EMILY AND BILLY
Craig was amazing in our wedding! We loved every photo moment we had. He was more than a photographer... He became part of the wedding party! Billy and I also had a really fun day doing engagement shoots in London and it a really worth it! We couldn't thank him anymore. He helped to create the lively memories.
SARAH AND GARETH

SARAH AND DAVE
Craig Howkins, we once again just wanted to say Thank you for the stunning photographs we have thanks to you to remember our special day. You were such fun on our day and so helpful on the lead up to it. No photo or request was too much trouble, you thought up some great 'shots' and fun photos that kept us all entertained. Not just us but our guests have being raving about you and what a lovely person you are.
We feel that not only do we now have a photographer to recommend to others but we also have a new friend.
Best wishes, Sarah and Dave
JANE AND LEE

KATIE AND LAWRENCE
I have sat down to attempt to write this a couple of times & not because I didn't have anything to say, the complete opposite actually, there are too many good things & I always thought I'd end up rambling on for hours! But, I am going to do this to the point -
Having owned my own photography company a few years ago & my myself have a passion for photography so I knew that when it came to myself getting married I would want THE BEST wedding photographer to capture my special day. My Husband & I met a couple of photographers, who were nice but just didn't have the wow factor I was looking for! Then arrived Craig, he was full of confidence, professional but also oozed character & personality from the off! Just from the first 5 minutes, I knew he was the one I wanted & my Husband also agreed.
Leading up to the wedding Craig was in touch often, checking on plans & making me feel at ease knowing he had it all under control. On the day he was absolutely mind-blowing, directed everyone & captured the shots as per several conversations about the vision of photography we both wanted. He did all this & more! He even sent our wedding pictures to Australia as we emigrated shortly after getting married & even sent us a Christmas card. Craig is awesome, his pictures are awesome & he was very affordable! What is there not to love?!
Thank you so much Craig, we both really appreciate your hard work & love for photography & so glad you captured our big day for us!!
Love the James-Beatsonbells!
KATHARINA AND FELIX
We couldn't have found a better wedding photographer than Craig! Not only are the pictures fantastic, he also managed to capture all those feelings and emotions within them, which made the day so special. Craig felt very much like a natural part of the wedding and all our guests loved having him around!
Craig, thank you so much!!
SUSANN AND JAN

Craig, we thank you so much for that and are glad, that you have been our photographer!
We cannot think of a better one.

VICTORIA AND DAVID
Craig was our wedding photographer. Every time I look through the photos I realise what a great job he made of it. He was very confident and managed to get all the photos he needed to tell the story of our day. The quality was fantastic and at a very reasonable price.
