Lovely things said by epic couples.

We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us from our first amazing meeting to the final production of such a stunning album. You made our day so relaxed and captured that perfectly too. Everyone commented on how wonderful you were. With love Claire & Neil x

Kate & Tom

Oh my goodness you are one clever badger!! They are fanblumin-ramalama-dingdong-tastic! I didn’t imagine they would be so beautiful….I hate photos of me but even I’ve come out trumps on these! We just couldn’t stop looking at them tonight. I didn’t realise my shoes went for a little excursion on a bike, love it! It’s great seeing snippets of what my friends and the kids were up to as well. Oh my god the ones outside with the church and moody lighting. Amazing, don’t know how you did that, must be witchcraft….brilliant! Some lovely, lovely ones of George and Ted and the girls. Some right little cute faced ones at Theresa’s house. Brilliant ones of DJ George too, the lighting and composition just beautiful. I’m so exited to show everyone.  Thanks again badge, gold star and top of the class! Kate xx

Jade & Michael

Emma & Wes Spencer

We thought you were amazing on our wedding day. The photos are stunning, we couldn’t have imagined them any better. You were fab from beginning to end. xxx

Louisa & Liam’s Wedding

Thank You for all the amazing wedding photographs you took at Louisa and Liam’s happy day last month. You have really captured the essence of the day, the sunshine, the laughter, the beauty of nature and the gorgeousness of the bride, groom and guests. The strange thing is that you were about all day and evening but you just blended in, quietly aware of the dynamics of the day and never an intrusion that is quite an achievement and a great complement to your professionalism. Thank you again, you are great!!
Love Sue x

Anna & Andy

I contacted Yvonne having already fallen in love with her wedding photography on her website. She captures something really beautiful, intimate and, most of all, fun from the weddings she’s photographed. I wanted her for our wedding! I was over the moon when she said she was available. She was so incredibly friendly and we felt she really listened to what we wanted. I was quite nervous about being in the limelight all day and about ‘smiling properly’ etc! But it felt the most natural thing in the World on the day as Yvonne gives such clear direction and makes the whole experience feel so wonderfully effortless. She went with the flow of the day so well, being discrete as we mingled with guests to creatively inspiring some AMAZING shots of us on our own. We all laughed such a lot! I’m absolutely thrilled with our coffee-table book and pick it up regularly; it never fails to make me grin from ear to ear. All of our friends have commented on the style of our photos, often with jealousy, over how fun and vibrant they are. I can’t get enough of her photos!

Karla & Matt McCallion

Just checked out the photos and we LOVE LOVE LOVE them. You are a genius. We feel amazed to have such unique, beautiful photos!!! Lots of love- what a talent you are!!! Mrs McCallion xxx

Sam & Andy Knight

We had Yvonne as our photographer for our wedding. We weren’t looking to spend as much as what was quoted, but after visiting her website and viewing the photos we decided to meet with her. We didn’t want the ‘normal’ bog standard wedding photos that you normally get with wedding photographers and her style was just what we were looking for. She came to our house with some sample albums and the first thing that struck us was how natural and fun they looked. It took us a while to convince ourselves that the money we were going to pay was going to be worthwhile and we are so glad we did. The photos that Yvonne took captured every happy moment of our special day and when we look back at them we remember what fun we had. Yvonne was a pleasure to work with; she is professional but also easy to get along with. She really cares about the photos she takes and also listens to what you want too. Her ideas may seem a little out there but they do work. Pay for a wedding photographer and get wedding photos. Pay for a top photographer and get memories for life! Choosing Yvonne to be our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She has proofed every single photo that is going in our album and has been very patient with our busy lifestyles when we have taken a while to get back to her. Don’t hesitate to get in touch or contact Yvonne and see her work for yourself.

Kerry & Andy

We spent many hours at wedding fayres meeting various photographers and generally felt pressured and somewhat bemused by the cold business like attitude of everyone we met, then we found Yvonne and from the moment we were invited to view her work we knew she would be the one we would choose, from the pre-wedding shoot to the wedding day itself and the constant contact in between, everything was perfect, we don’t think you will find another photographer that you will find yourself so at ease with.

In fact anybody we know who is getting married (or wants any other type of photo’s) we quite actively recommend Yvonne. Yvonne stayed at the wedding until the job was done in fact she was with us so long people thought she was a guest so you certainly get excellent value for money. Our album is perfect in every way the quality is fantastic the pre-wedding image for everyone to sign at the wedding was an excellent idea and her unique style and idea’s will make your album stand out from the rest, and the photographer THE BEST bar none, totally trumped the ones we saw at the wedding fayres.

Lindsey & Adam Browning

Yvonne, thank you for doing our wedding photography, You were brilliant and we had an awesome day. Love from The Brownings xxx

Abi & Francesco Alessandrelli

We chose Yvonne Lishman Photography after searching through hundreds of photographers available in the East Midlands for our wedding in Lincolnshire in December 2010. I contacted Yvonne after seeing her galleries online, which showed that she tailor-makes the photography to suit the client. A lot of photographers I’d contacted had bog standard set photos, such as the bride adjusting her dad’s tie (I’d never do that!) etc, or simply an informal reportage style, which I didn’t want either as I don’t look good in photos taken with me unawares! I live in Italy so we arranged to meet next time I was in Leicester and she came over and showed us the albums and we did a pre-wedding photo shoot, to get us comfortable for posing with a professional. This was a massive help, I’m quite a poser but my husband is more reserved so it was good practice for the big day! Out of these photos, we chose one to be enlarged and mounted for guests at the wedding to sign, which was a lovely touch and a great keepsake! Leading up to the big day, Yvonne was very involved in the process finding out exactly what we wanted and making great suggestions. I really appreciated her input and it helped us to plan the day properly as we weren’t having a Master of Ceremonies or anything. As we love films and my husband is Italian, Yvonne came up with some great suggestions, inspired from our favourite films, such as the Godfather and Casino, they really worked out great! On the day, Yvonne arrived with an assistant a couple of hours before the ceremony to take photos of me getting ready and stayed right until after the first dance, not leaving until after 9pm. This was much more than a lot of other photographers offered. We had photos of me getting ready, the ceremony, photos at a nearby venue after the church, some informal shot of the guests mingling etc, the speeches, the cake cutting, formal family shots, and lots and lots of me and my husband together in a fashion magazine style. We had hundreds to choose from! We have just got our album, which was really fast, everyone else I know waited up to a year or longer for their albums. Yvonne has gone out of her way to send us samples etc to Italy. We will have her to take the first official photos of our baby, which is due in September this year. We’d definitely recommend Yvonne if you want something personalized and if photography is going to be an important feature of your big day.

Katie & Justin Renn

Thank you very much for making our day very special. We didn’t think having our photos taken would be so much fun. You are amazing at what you do and you made us feel very special. All our love Mr & Mrs Renn x

Victoria & Andrew Newsome

Thank you so much for our wonderful album. We were so excited to get it and it’s exactly what we wanted. Thanks for capturing our day; our album will help keep the day alive forever.

Ceri & Adam

Thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding photos. It will help us to keep the memories alive forever.

Kirsty & Reece

Hi Yvonne, Just wanted to thank you again for being the photographer at our wedding. Our pictures are amazing and the album is fab. Everyone who has seen the album so far is wowed by it. Once again big thanks. Love Kirsty and Reece

Becky & Rob Winter

Yvonne was wonderful to work with from the moment we contacted her after our engagement, to our ‘trash the dress’ experience after our big day. She was fun, professional, creative and kind – all the qualities we were looking for when seeking a wedding photographer. On our wedding day she was discrete and organized. We loved displaying a pre-wedding portrait shot in our marquee for guests to sign, everyone commented on what a great idea this was. Our album is very beautiful in terms of how the photos have been arranged, sized etc. When we look back at it, the photos bring back lots of happy memories. Being able to wear my dress again for ‘trash the dress’ was so much fun. Yvonne, my husband and I certainly had a few giggles when thinking of unusual places to pose in the same village, Cromwell, where we were married a few months earlier. I would not hesitate to use Yvonne again for any type of photography; she was certainly a great find! Thank you Yvonne!

Danielle & Colin Glover

We were looking for a photographer to photograph our wedding day and wanted them to capture the whole day from the preparation in the morning right through to the first dance. We had met with a few photographers but hadn’t really seen anything that made them stand out from the rest or felt a rapport with any of them. When we found Yvonne we knew immediately that her style of informal wedding photography was what we were looking for and she made us feel at ease straight away. We wanted photos of the day that weren’t overly posed and traditional – we wanted an album that told us the story of our day. Everyone who we have shown the pictures to have been really impressed with the look and quality of them and have all said it’s the nicest wedding album they have ever seen even better than their own!

Danielle & Colin’s wedding photographs are FABULOUS! I have been crying my eyes out with pride…it’s like re-living the day.
Sue Sainty (Danielle’s mum)

Pippa & Carl

Thank you so much for the fantastic photographs you have taken of our wedding. You captured the day beautifully and Carl and myself are so pleased. Thank You.

Helen Barnes – International Slalon Canoeist and Guinness World Record Holder

Yvonne Lishman is the most talented photographer I have worked with. Her photos are absolutely beautiful. She has incredibly creative ideas and constantly puts you at ease. A lovely woman, who is totally committed to producing the images you are after. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Helen & Alec

Yvonne was amazing and it was a real pleasure to have her take our photos. She was with us all day until after our first dance. She really helped make the day special and the photos were beautiful. We felt really at ease on the day and she helped Alec relax so the photos looked great. Before and during the day she was open to any ideas we had and was full of great ideas for the locations. The natural photo of the guest looked great too and she captured the fun and excitement of the day. Yvonne also spent a lot of time with us when we were putting together our album helping us pick and put together the pages to make it look beautiful.

Una & George

We know it has taken a few months, wedding pictures are wonderful and the idea of the book just great. Thanks for coming all the way to Perth to do them we knew you were the right choice.

Sally & Steve Beeston

Steve & I would like to thank you for the huge contribution you made to our wedding day. You helped to make the whole experience both fun and special at the same time. With love Sally & Steve

Perry & Sarah Leathers

Within five minutes of meeting Yvonne we knew she was the one to do our wedding photography. We clicked straight away and she just “got us”. On the day of the wedding Yvonne made us relaxed and enjoy the experience, which as a guy who hates having his photo taken was an achievement. Not just a great original photographer but also now a great friend.

Sarah & Ronnie

We just wanted to give you an official thank you! You’re amazing and the photographs you took were so much better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you for arranging for Anneka to film it too. We had a lovely day. Thanks for capturing it for us. Much love Sarah & Ronnie xxx

Harry Cook MBE – Labrador Rescue

I want to thank you most sincerely for coming to the presentation to take the photographs of the award winners, guests and people attending. The photographs are absolutely first class. Once again many thanks for your continuing support.

Zoe, Matt & Amelie

We booked Yvonne to take our wedding photos. We had the difficult problem of not wanting to have the traditional high street photographer and thinking we couldn’t afford something more modern or reportage style – I hate having my photo taken and was nervous about having to stand for lots of staged photos. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found Yvonne’s site. She came from Nottingham to Peterborough to shoot our wedding. We had a pre wedding portrait where Yvonne came to our home and took some lovely shots and this was included in our package. She took time to get to know us and our preferences and she didn’t come across as insincere like a lot of people in the wedding business do. On the day she took some gorgeous photos, and we had so much fun doing some very “different” photos with our guests later in the evening. Most of the time we didn’t notice her there doing her thing but the guests who spoke to her said how friendly she was. Yvonne put our shots online for us so we were able to view a taster whilst we were on honeymoon and we put a link on our Facebook page. Everyone who has seen our photos has said that it looked like a really fun day and a big part of that was down to Yvonne. I can’t say enough good things about Yvonne and her photography and can’t wait for an excuse to book her again!

Zarina & Dave Jones

Our pics are gorgeous. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us. We’ve got some wonderful memories thanks to your amazing skills and effort. We’re telling everyone who did our photos! Thank you for capturing our day, we’re so pleased with the end result.

Tracy & Graham Harvey-Flewitt

It was an easy choice to use Yvonne to photograph our wedding. From our 1st meeting Yvonne put us both at ease, her style and quality of photography stood out miles above the rest. On the day the weather was not too kind but between the showers Yvonne captured a fantastic series of photographs, her natural ability to put people at ease really stood out and our guests thought she was amazing. To sum it all up the Yvonne Lishman Photography experience was out of this world; if we do it again we will knock on Yvonne’s door.

Christie & Colby Nagel

Yvonne Lishman photographed our wedding ceremony in the UK. We travelled from Australia and spent the day with the polite, flexible and exceptional photographer Yvonne who was open to any suggestion and took wonderful photographs for us. Excellent.

Fiona & Jamie Byrne

Yvonne took our wedding photos – they were fabulous. We’re so proud of them. She was so professional and made everyone feel at ease. She captured the essence of our special day beautifully and really reflected our relationship perfectly. I’d recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Yvonne!
