Wedding Photography review by Kristian & Beth

Kristian & Beth

Steve and Sandra were our photographers for our wedding at Heaton House Farm. From our first contact with them, they were absolutely brilliant. They just lead us through the day like another wedding coordinator, and they got some amazing photos that we can cherish forever! We also had a pre-wedding shoot with us at Mam Tor and Winnats Pass. This was well worth it as we got to know Steve and Sandra and get used to being in front of the camera which made the wedding day a lot less stressful and we also got some more incredible photos from it! Thank you so much Steve and Sandra – you were amazing!

Sandra and Steve were an absolute joy to have as our wedding photographers. Until getting married ourselves, I had no idea what a vital part they’d play in the build-up to and during the day. They may seem like small things but even being there with pins for the buttonholes, helping the men to look presentable and organising the girls was such a tremendous help, and they helped remove any stress from the day. With Sandra carrying my dress and drinks and helping me in and out of places, I should’ve provided her with a bridesmaid dress!

Wedding Photography review by Mitchell & Cat

Mitchell & Cat

My husband and I got married at Heaton House Farm and are so happy that we chose SMH Photography to capture our special day.
We first met Sandra at one of Heaton House Farm’s experience events. She was really friendly, and we were impressed with the photos that we saw. After researching other photographers, we knew that SMH were the ones for us and booking them was really easy.

Steve & Sandra were recommended to us by a lady I work with. I was apprehensive meeting any photographer as a close friend of mine is a wedding photographer. Due to her now living in the US, she was unable to attend our wedding. I spoke with my friend, and she said to me “You need to book this couple”.
When I met Sandra & Steve, it was like chatting to old friends; they are so approachable and friendly. I was quite specific with what I wanted to capture, and they understood completely. Nothing was too much trouble. They were in touch the whole time and were a pleasure to deal with.

Liam & Laura

We recently got married at Heaton House Farm. Steve and Sandra were our photographers for the day, but for myself and my wife they were a huge part of our day as I’m sure our guests would all agree. Due to their extensive knowledge of the venue, relationships with the staff there and their kind, considerate yet humorous personality and passion for their love of photography they were exceptional on the day.

We recently got married and have to say that Steve and Sandra were absolutely fantastic.
On the day, they were professional and approachable, all whilst getting amazing shots. They knew the group photos we wanted so were able to quickly get our guests into position without them feeling like they were waiting around. This was all due to the preparation Steve and Sandra did with us before the event

Not only are Steve and Sandra extremely good at what they do, but they are also both lovely people, who are so friendly and easy to deal with. We would strongly recommend them. Many thanks.

Steve and Sandra are amazing! From our first meeting to collecting our album, we received a professional but friendly service. With their years of experience, they helped us arrange the timetable for the day and made it run smoothly. On the wedding morning, Sandra turned into our wedding planner when there were last-minute glitches.
The photographs are amazing; they captured so much of the day and really captured our emotions. I highly recommend them!

I can’t thank you enough for being so easy to work with and always making sure we all felt ok at all times. It all played a part in making sure our day was exactly as we wanted!
Thank you! Nadia and Michael xxx
