Jess and Shez - 2016,

We met Bill a couple of years ago at a wedding fair. He was the only photographer we had met that wasn't pushy, he simply gave us his business card and said to give him a call when we were ready to book a photographer. We arranged a meeting with him where he came to our house and showed us some of his previous work and knew that he was the photographer for us. To help calm our nerves about being photographed all day Bill organised a pre wedding shoot with us to give us a taster of what to expect, we ended up really enjoying it!

On our wedding day Bill was brilliant, he knew what photographs to take and where. He had a good laugh with everyone to keep them relaxed and get shots that captured their personalities. He took control of situations and took the pressure off of us so that we could just enjoy every minute. We were going on honeymoon the day after the wedding and wanted to see as many pictures as possible before we left. Bill promised to have them all available online the night of our wedding and they were! Every single one for us and our guests to see. It was amazing to have them all so quickly and made us take 15 minutes to sit back and relish the experience we had had.

Bill we are so glad we booked you as our wedding photographer. Thank you so much for the amazing job that you did (and to Tony too!). It was an absolute pleasure sharing our day with you, you helped make it so much fun!

Thank you for giving us the life long memories.

Hi Bill

The albums are stunning! They're better than we could of imagined. Thank you so so much. I cannot wait to give the parent books out and see the looks on their faces.

Hey Bill 

I have had a hell of a day at work.  To come home to your emails  and proofs.    Well ..  it has completely changed my mood! I was jumping on the sofa with happy tears reliving the day you photographed the wedding  !  This is so exciting! The book looks AMAZING.  The title is perfect and I'd love to take you up on the offer of the black leather book with silver plated writing please.

Thank you so much Bill. I am still in awe of the photos that you and Tony took!

Jess xx

 

Hi Bill
just to let you know I received the proof book today and have just sat down and had a look through. They are all absolutely beautiful and I have no idea how we're going to choose them for the book, let alone the canvas.
Some fantastic shots and we are so pleased we chose you to shoot our day.
Sarah & Paul


Dear Bill,

Thank you very much for the photos. You are such an amazing and talented photographer. Definitely know how to capture the best angles and poses. Now that I looked at the on-line album, it reminded me  of the best moments I had last night. I shared the album with all of the guests. They are all amazed by the incredible photos. I sincerely thank you on their behalf. Please feel free to share the dining photos with Darwin Caterers. They did a great job organizing the whole event. I love all the pink decors and pink dishes (especially the special dessert!) Thank you for being our event photographer. I'll definitely hire you again if I have any event coming up, and I have just recommended you to all my friends in the UK hours ago. Again, it was a pleasure to have you on my birthday. Best, Liting

Message from Bill, " I photographed a young graduates birthday party within the walls of Darwin College Cambridge University on Saturday night and had the photos on-line by 2 am Sunday. Above is the  clients comment.   Weddings, birthdays, parties . Wherever there are people. That’s my speciality.  I am a full time professional and know how to make a fun day FUN and memorable.   Perhaps you would like ro meet me for a chat ?

Dear Bill, Thank you for the fantastic job you did. You thoroughly went through what to expect on the day, had an incredible eye for detail, thinking of where to take photos throughout the day and took so many inconspicuous photos as well as the formal photos that we wanted. This resulted in a lovely album of both formal and informal photos which perfectly summarised our day, which you arranged in such a clever and professional format. Thank you so much,
Matthew and Cheryl

 

"Hi Bill & Emma,
Just to say thank you to you both! The album is lovely! Better than we expected we are over the moon with it. The quality is just superb, we can't thank you enough!
Bill, thank you for all your hard work with the design of the album. And thanks so much for the calendar is lovely and we can't wait until we can hang it proudly in our home.
Emma, thank you for everything you did for us on our big day and taking so many wonderful photos!
We are extremely happy with the service we received and will recommend you to any friends in the future who we know are planning a big day.
Many thanks again!!
Sarah, Carl & Callum xx"

 

"Bill,We have been looking through the albums that you have done for us and we wanted to write to say how delighted we are with them! Everything has turned out perfectly and the attention to detail you have put in is fantastic! Some of the effects and touch ups are really great and you have really picked up all of the details.
The story of our wedding day has been told beautifully and we are delighted with the parent books, they will be thrilled.
As we have said before, it was an absolute pleasure working with you in the build up and on the day and everybody commented on how efficient and professional you were in organising us all and getting the shots quickly, especially as it was a cold day!
If you would like us to write a short testimonial for you we would be more than happy, or feel free to use all or part of this e-mail as you wish!
Kind regards Andrew and Helen" (2015)

"Dear Bill, We wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you have done. Right from the start you were very accommodating to our needs and ideas for photos. You listened to our ideas and took them on board and we are so pleased with how our photos look in the online gallery.
Everything was done so quickly. The photos were up online the same night for all the guests to see and the proof book was sent the next day. We cannot recommend you highly enough. Even on the day nothing was too much trouble, even when we had such a large bridal party and so many photos to take. Everything was done in a highly professional manner and your assistant, Emma, who worked with the groom in the morning and at the venue was amazing too.
You were also great in terms of your price. We got so much value for our money and would have no hesitation in asking you to do future work for us. We have already recommended you to others as we know what a fantastic job you will do.
Thank you so much for providing such amazing photos to remember our special day.Wayne and Nicola Hutchinson". (March 2015)

Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph

 Matt Hardy

"This is exactly what Bill and his assistant Emma managed to achieve. Our amazing day was made perfect by Bill going above and beyond what we could have dreamed.

With a large family it was time pressured but Bill managed to take all the pictures we asked for and then some! We had a laugh with Bill and he put everyone at ease and he achieved a lot of gorgeous photos from our special day, and the unusual ones we thought at the time were a bit strange to take have turned out to be our favourite pictures! I'm glad we put our trust in him

Bill uploaded the photos the same night so at breakfast we could sit and look at them with our family and friends.

The quality didn't stop there. With his expert eye and professionalism he expertly created a beautiful photo album from the photos we selected.

Hardworking, reasonable and fun, have resulted in us being able to look back on our wedding day with a massive smile with a lot of beautiful photos. Couldn't imagine using another photographer! A MASSIVE THANK YOU!!  "

Hi Bill. I know we will see you Sunday but just wanted to say how delighted we all are with your photos. Just what Claudia and Danny wanted, full of fun and character. Your contribution to their day was absolutely crucial and you delivered more than we could have imagined. Taking charge was so important and our only problem is choosing the photos for the albums. Maybe you'll help us!

See you Sunday.

Hi Bill, We would just like to say thank you very much for yesterday, you made us feel so calm and at ease, cant wait to see the finished piece" - Katie and Daniel x

 

Hello Bill, We would like to thank you for the fantastic service that we have received from you.
We were very happy and felt comfortable from when you first delivered your presentation at our home with your direct but personable style. You explained everything that we needed explaining and we were very impressed with the packages that you offered us and your previous work that you showed us.

On our big day we could not have asked for any more regarding the photos that were taken. We felt that you appreciated our requests for the style of shots that we wanted and we were over the moon that you led proceedings and we have benefitted from your experience and expertise in the way that guests were shepherded into position for the photos in an efficient but not too forceful manner. We really appreciated that with the light rain that we had that day and the end result was that we ended up with many more outdoor photos despite the weather.

We always at every stage of the whole process had timely responses to our enquiries and we were always crystal clear on what the next stage required.

Thank you again Bill
We feel that you definitely contributed to making our biggest day of our lives so special to us and we have a superb quality album to show for it. We would definitely recommend your services to others. Best of Luck with everything - Leroy & Hayley

Many thanks, Johnny and Lucy. "

 

" Hi bill, Just a very quick message to let u know we have received our album etc and it all looks amazing we are so pleased with how it turned out. Thanks again Sam and Brett "


"We both felt that Bill did a great job with the photography at our wedding - because it's such a big day then it's important to get it right and we're happy that we picked the right man. Bill was very professional and very discreet and when you look back at our album he captured some great memories - a great mix of natural shots and 'posing' shots! Prior to booking Bill we looked at a number of photographers in the area; they all looked like they did good work, however the album quality that Bill produces (at a reasonable price) made him stand out. Having just collected the album yesterday, we're certainly not disappointed - it's fantastic. Before booking, then we would certainly recommend having a visit from Bill (or visiting him) as this will give you the opportunity to look back over some of his previous work and you can discuss what package it is you would like (he is flexible in working to what you are looking for). We're both thankful to Bill for his work and, whilst we don't plan on marrying again, we'll certainly bear him in mind for any photographer needs in the future. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to family and friends."
Review by Stewart

 

"Bill was brilliant, made us feel relaxed and the photo's are incredible, we now have to pick our favourite 100 for our story book album which is going to be so hard with so many fantastic photo's to choose from. We would recommend Bill for any special occasion, he is professional, his work is amazing and we will treasure the photo's for many years to come!"
Review by Danielle

 

From the moment we met him, Bill put us at ease and made us feel that everything would go smoothly. And indeed it did, from the moment Bill turned up at my house to photograph me and my bridesmaids and father (it was my Daughter) he made us feel totally relaxed. The pictures were stunning and we agree with the review above that the hard part was electing those to go in the Italian album - in fact we added 10 pages because there was so many great pictures to choose from. We were able to make our selection in the comfort of Bill's own home/studio and fine tune our final storybook. We would highly recommend him for any occasion."
Review by Shirley and John

 

I would highly recommend Bill Bowman to anyone, he made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day and was so discreet in the curch and reception. I am not very photogenic normally but Bill took natural picturesand made me look a princess. His prices and packages are amazing and the whole Italian story book theme is something to treasure forever, the easy thing is book him and the hardest is choosing the amazing pictures he will take for your story book. If I ever needed a photographer again I would use him again, thanks for helping me capture the most importat day of my life so well." Review by Joedy

 

Hi Bill, Just received the album, what can we say! WOW! The photos are amazing, as is the quality! We are so pleased with the end result! Thank you so much - Amy & Sean

 

Hi Bill, We loved the books- brilliant !! Louise

 

Dear Mr. Bowman, Thank you so much for the amazing photos you took of my daughters wedding (Penni and Alex -25th July), I have already sent my order for the photos and I know many more are to follow. Once again like to thank you for the wonderful photos which really captured the atmosphere of the event and the character of the venue - with grateful thanks - Suzi Glover"

 

Hi Bill, Just to say thank you for the beautiful Italian book of photos that you recently sent to us. It was far better than we ever imagined it would be. Our friends and family have all said it is the best wedding album they have ever seen, but then again this was mainly down to the fact that you are an outstanding photographer, you were so professional on the day, put us all at ease, and everyone asked for details about you. The extra photo's you put in the album were great, and we just loved the way you set everything out. The large canvas picture we requested from you was fantastic, everyone who has been to our flat has commented on how clear and sharp the picture is considering how big the canvas is. Once again a huge thank-you. if I should ever need a photographer for any special function in the future, I will not hesitate to give you a call. I wish you good luck for the future, and hope you will keep taking special photos for years to come, or your obvious talent will be truley wasted.
With many thanks Janet & Peter Earles"

 

Hi Bill, hope you are well. Firstly i want to say a HUGE thank you for everything you done for us on the day of our wedding. Me and John and also everyone else were very impressed with you and the pictures were absolutely brilliant! Everyone I have showed the photos to and who have seen them on the website have commented on how fabulous a photograher you are and we certainly agree! Secondly, thanks for the proof book. .................Look forward to hearing from you.
Many Thanks Leigh and Johnathan Rose"

 

"Dear Bill, I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of everybody at Berkhamsted School Final Fling Prom on Friday for your fantastic photography. Your professionalism is undeniable, but your friendliness and willingness were outstanding. I know lots of people bought pictures on the night, but many (like me, to my shame) got far too absorbed in the dancing (!) and will buy them off your website. I look forward to seeing them on the Internet so that I can take the opportunity to buy the photos which I know will provide a lasting reminder of a fabulous night. Your kindness and generosity were greatly appreciated, and you can be sure that I will sing your praises to the next Head Girl and Boy as you so deserve. The banner you supplied really transformed the entrance and shall be saved for them to (hopefully) use next year, and the tokens were very generous of you - I do not overlook your kindness, even though I was so caught up in the dancing to take advantage of it. Both Matt and I really do value everything that you did for us, and i hope that you can sense the sincerity of our thanks...
Best wishes, Caroline" (Head Girl and Committee member of Berkhamsted Collegiate Prom at Pendley Manor)

 

"Hi Bill, Thank you so much for the wonderful albums they have come out perfectly and are a fabulous reminder of our wedding day. Thank you for all your hard work we love them. Kind Regards Kerry & Paul"

"Bill, Vivien & I would like to thank you for the Wedding Album, we were very pleased with the quality of the pictures and layout. Its difficult to know what to expect as times and technology move on. We have framed all the loose ones and the big one hangs proudly on the living room wall. We thank you for your attention and co operation and wish you all the best. Regards Roland"

"Hi Bill, just received the Books and they look fabulous and beautiful - just perfect, thank-you so very much! Also thank you for the little surprise calendar thats very thoughtful of you.

"Hi Bill, Hope you are well. The photos are great. James and I have looked on Line. You looked after us well at Buckwood House in Devon in January and we are so looking forward to seeing the finished book....Love Lisa and James"

".....Also Bill Bowmans work on the still photography was excellent. There are books being printed in Italy I believe, using prints selected by Laura & Matt from the 700-odd that he took. For myself, I hardly like to admit to how many prints I have ordered and received, and they are all a first-class standard of printing. he has also covered absolutley all areas and every detail imaginable, so we are impressed and pleased with his work. ....... Best wishes Elizabeth"

" Dear Elizabeth.....As it happens, we have had Bill Bowman at Ashridge a couple of times now, and were so impressed that we have added him to our preferred supplier list this year !.....Many Thanks Sally Rouse, Conference & Events Co-ordinator - Ashridge"

They are amazing, what a fantastic album, James still hasn't seen it yet as he is at work, but I am 110% sure he will love it just as much as I do. We are off to Italy in a few weeks to see relatives that were not able to attend our wedding, so I am going to bring our album over for them to see what a fantastic job you guys do, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Again a very BIG thank you to you and your team for a fantastic memory.

"Hi Bill, Sorry this is a bit belated but we wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing wedding album you have produced for us, it is absolutely amazing and is a beautiful reminder of the happy day. So many friends and work colleagues have commented how unusual the album is - several even saying they are the most amazing wedding photos and album they have ever seen - which obviously makes us very proud. The small albums and pocket books have also gone down a treat - even bought tears to my Grandma's eyes! The special finish on the album was definitely worth the extra as the colour of the pictures looks amazing........
Kind Regards, Natalie."

All our family and friends have commented on how unusual to stroey books are and how you not only captured the magical moments of the day but the finer details from the pattern on the wedding dress down to the candles, flowers and wedding tables. Also bringing the slide machine ffrom pictures from the day so people could purchase their own photos at the evening reception was a great idea and a lovely touch. Thanks again and we will cherish our album forever" Nick and Claire
