Dear Derek,

We would like to personally thank you for everything you did in making our day so special. Having been a little nervous of having photos taken, you made it feel so easy and natural. You are such a kind and wonderful person that you made us feel even more special on our day. From start to finish you have been so professional and we seriously will never forget what you did for us. Having Claire attend was a lovely bonus and again please pass on our thanks, she was also so warm and kind and everything we wanted.

If you ever need anything at all please do not hesitate to ask, you have touched our hearts by helping us on the day and we will never forget you.

Take care,

Rich and Hayley Cupper

From the moment we spoke to Derek from Rivendell it was clear that there was only ever going to be one choice for us. He made the whole process very easy, both my wife and I felt completely comfortable about being in the spotlight, something neither of us particularly enjoy! His professionalism during our conversations and our special day was spot on - prompt, efficient and still able to capture each moment just so. During the day we hardly noticed him and his colleague as they went about their business, they were great with our guests and getting the shots we wanted without being imposing. I have no hesitation in recommending Rivendell, their hard work resulted in them capturing some truly beautiful moments that we absolutely love.

Massive thank you to Derek for our photos, they are amazing. I highly recommend him. He was very accommodating to what we as a couple wanted from our photos and he made my very nervous groom relaxed enough to smile in them. Even though our outside shots got rained off he made it work so we still got everything we wanted. We will cherish our photos.

Dear Derek,

I am the Mother of Sam Wyatt, you took the photos of Sam and Bex’s wedding 7th May 2016, Hook House Farm 2016, I just wanted to say they are FABULOUS
I have ordered but it was really hard to choose. They look really good so just wanted to thank you so much, It was a very stressful day with my inlaws falling over etc.
But you made it all look very relaxed and so so happy, as we all were, there was a lot of love for the couple and your photos show that. You were so discreet ( or maybe I had too much prosecco) no really you were that’s why you have captured so many moments that were special and people were not aware of you taking them, that’s a skill in itself.

Many many thanks for a superb job would highly recommend you.

Best regards Debbie Wyatt

Great to work with this wonderful company from start to finish. Made me feel so at ease and relaxed from the start. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful. Derek and Trevor did a fantastic job on the day and made everyone feel included and special. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer and all round service.
A special mention to Lysa as well for making me and my daughter feel so welcome during our first meeting. What lovely and professional people you are.

Thank you to Derek and Colin who made our big day so very special. You went above and beyond to make sure each shot was perfect and the professionalism was 1st class. Despite disastrous events on the day (a fainting guest and a broken wedding dress!) You made ourselves and our guests feel completely at ease and we can't recommend you highly enough. The quality of the pictures we have seen so far are incredible and we are very excited to see the whole album in due course. We love our gorgeous signed guestbook frame, which was a lovely surprise and hangs proudly on our wall. We couldn't have picked a more genuinely lovely, friendly, reliable and professional service. Thank you so much for making our wedding day all the more special with you being there, All the best, Bex and Sam

We had great service from Derek and his photographer. They were so warm and accommodating even though we met them for a short time. The photos are of professional and excellent quality. We will definitely use them again.

Being a keen photographer myself, the choice of professional photographer for our wedding fell to me to sort. A great deal of searching ensued until I came across Derek (Rivendell) on Facebook and subsequently the web pages proper. I liked the portfolio and therefore contacted Derek to arrange a visit. His manner and knowledge during this visit convinced me he was the one. We were very soon put a ease and the vision of the day was soon realised. Most importantly it was OUR day, Derek would do what we wanted but also had some lovely suggestions too, some of which we incorporated. Derek had explained everything very well and very professionally and made sure he was fully aware of the times of the service, venue, what group shots were required, reception and so on. All in all it was one less thing to worry about as we had no doubt this very important part of the wedding was in good hands.

We booked Derek, plus assistant, for the entire day and I would have to say that apart from the organised image taking we hardly noticed either of them were there. Both photographers were polite and efficient and made the whole thing very relaxed. The day was a blur and so my wife and I were very excited to be able to view the images 2 weeks on and thankfully we were not disappointed. The images taken were high quality and captured the day perfectly. The images we really wanted were there and perfect, it was like reliving the day again. The thoughtfulness and composition of some of the images, slightly out of the ordinary, was a welcomed touch when we saw them, we weren't aware they had been taken even, a nice surprise indeed.

My wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending Derek and Rivendell for any special occasion where you want a professional result, and will be doing so.

Thank you Derek.
