“Andy’s relaxed style of documentary-style photography was exactly what we wanted”

“We spent a long time researching wedding photographers before we came across Andy Sidders at a wedding fair and as soon as we met him and saw the quality of his photographs and albums we knew we had found a true gem.

We had a November wedding and wanted a photographer who was prepared to get a little cold and wet if necessary and be able to cope with the reduced daylight hours.

On our engagement shoot, Andy instantly put us at ease and took the time to get to know us. This meant that we were both much calmer on the actual wedding day and we had 100% confidence that he and his second shooter would capture it perfectly. We were not wrong about this, the end result was a set of stunning photos that we are so proud of.

Andy’s relaxed style of documentary-style photography was exactly what we wanted, catching people throughout the day naturally and making suggestions for some amazing photos, whilst also taking some more formal group photos that we asked for. The shots of us as a couple are all genuine so as we felt so at ease (despite this being the part we were most apprehensive about).

Andy handled the whole day calmly and professionally, helping us through the day and working with the venue to keep it all on track.

Many of our guests commented on the day about how much they liked him and how non-intrusive he and his second photographer were.

After we got the photos back so many people have said that it’s the best and most natural set of wedding photos they’ve seen.

We are so thrilled with all our photos which capture our day perfectly – looking through them brings so many memories back to life.

The amazing album he produced and then spent a long time tweaking for us is the best memento we could have asked for and honestly the best quality wedding album we (and everyone we’ve shown it to) has seen.

Dealing with Andy from start to finish has been a pleasure and we could not have asked for more in a wedding photographer. Thank you so much!”

Laura & Tom's Wedding at Shendish Manor

Laura and Tom had a November wedding at Shendish Manor in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

My coverage of the wedding day began photographing Laura as she had her hair and makeup done in the Bridal Suite. During this time I took documentary-style photos of her getting ready and detail shots of her dress, shoes, jewellery and her gorgeous pink rose bouquet that had been created by Maples Flowers.

While I was busy photographing bride prep my second photographer took documentary photos of Tom as he helped decorate the Longman Suite ready for wedding breakfast. He also took some lovely portraits of Tom and his groomsmen before having some fun taking shots of the guys walking like the Ghostbusters!

The ceremony took place in the Dickinson Suite. It was a lovely ceremony with readings from the groomsmen and Laura’s brother. At the end of the ceremony, Laura and Tom were congratulated by all their guests and then we head outside for group shots of Laura and Tom with their family and friends including a group shot of all the guests.

Wedding breakfast was served in the Longman Suite and was followed by speeches.

The evening saw the cutting of the cake, the first dance and then lots of crazy dancing. The highlight for me was when Tom and his groomsman took over the dance floor as they danced away to a “Weird Al” Yankovic medley and had the room in stitches.

The wedding day was rounded off with everyone outside for a sparkler shot and was a great way to end my coverage of the wedding.

Many congratulations to Laura and Tom!
