Alison & Jason


Wedding: Colne Parish Church. Wedding Reception: Mytton Hall, Gt Mytton, Lancashire.

“We first met Andrew at a wedding one year before ours. On that day we thought what an easy going, well organised and nice guy he was. We then saw the wedding book and thought that he was definitely the one to photograph our wedding. We got in touch with Andrew and arranged to meet him where he showed us some more of his photography. We knew then that we had the right photographer.


Our wedding took so much organising and we were determined to make our special day one to remember. The day turned out to be perfect, better than we could have ever imagined and Andrew captured the day spectacularly. We were so impressed with his meticulous approach to our big day. It was as if he cared about our wedding as much as we did. Before the wedding day Andrew wanted us to meet him at both the church and then the hotel to plan where we could capture the best possible pictures. We knew then that we were in safe hands.


Getting married is such a fantastic experience but on the day it can also be very stressful, hoping everything is going to turn out ok and go according to plan. Andrew was so easy to work with. Because he had studied our wedding venues he was in total control and knew exactly what he wanted and this helped take the pressure off. Everybody commented on what a pleasant and nice photographer Andrew was and how easy he was to work with. He mingled in well and caught some great pictures.


When we had to choose the pictures for the wedding book it was very difficult because there were so many fantastic images to pick from. In the end we found it so hard to leave some pictures out that I think we ended with one of the biggest albums Andrew has produced. When we received the finished wedding book we were gobsmacked at just how brilliantly Andrew had captured the day and how wonderfully the album had been put together- a masterpiece.


Your wedding day is always a day to remember but we are lucky enough to have a fantastic wedding album to look back on and recapture our memories. We would recommend Andrew Whalley to anybody looking for a wedding photographer- a great professional and a great photographer.”

George & Tina


Wedding: St.Charles Church Rishton Nr Blackburn. Reception: The Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Accrington, Lancashire.

“Just a quick line to say how thrilled we are with the photographs you produced following George and Tina On the day your only daughter is to be married it is important that everything is planned to perfection.

There are beauticians, hairdressers etc., however, the most important for the long lasting memories of this special day are provided by you, the photographer.


Andrew, from the moment you arrived you became part of the wedding party and the all important preparations. Your relaxed, easy going and friendly approach immediately put my daughter and her Bridesmaids at ease. Your fantastic photographs, of everybody present at my house that day, reflect this. You had everything covered, from early morning preparations, to the church, to the reception. Nothing was too much trouble.


This fact was emphasised by family members who stated that they were impressed by your inter personal skills, especially when photographing the children. Your organisational skills and your search for perfection do you credit and again this can be mirrored in the finished product.


I would not hesitate to recommend you to any other potential families wishing to record their most important times of their lives through your photographs. Thank you again for everything you did on our special day. The photographs speak for themselves. Sensational!


Once again many thanks, Julie and Mike Kay. (Tina’s Mum & Dad)


Jill & Andy’s


Wedding: Emmanuel Parish Church Pleasington. Reception: The Pines Hotel, Chorley, Lancashire.


“Just a note to say thank you so much for providing us with stunning photos for our wedding day. Every single one is superb and we are having difficulty selecting ones for our Wedding Book because they are all so good.


You have always been very approachable answering all of our questions swiftly whether by phone or email. On the day, this relaxed and informal approach really came across. We hardly knew we were being photographed which resulted in some natural shots. Many of my guests expressed that you were a great photographer, putting them at ease and understanding that they wanted to take photos as well.


You captured every aspect of our day brilliantly and we will enjoy re-living our day all over again in years to come when we look back on our photos. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done to help make our day so special. Your internet site was fantastic, letting us look at our photos a few days later while we were on our honeymoon - what a brilliant idea!


Our photos are relaxed, natural and truly capture what was the happiest day of our lives.


Thank you!”

Jill & Andy




Paul & Kirsty

Wedding Ceremony & Reception: Mytton Fold Hotel Langho Nr Blackburn Lancashire

“Kirsty and I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic job you did of capturing our special day.


We knew from our first meeting with you, that you would be the man for the job, hence our phone call to confirm the booking about fifteen minutes after you left!

As anyone who is going through the process of wedding planning will know, it can be a stressful affair, but your efficient, relaxed style and flexibility meant the photography was something we really didn’t need to worry about.


The contact and efficient communication prior to the day gave us chance to develop a real rapport and meant that we had a clear idea of the pictures we wanted, so we could get our ushers (when they arrived!) to organise people and get the shots done with minimal hassle and waiting around.


On the day, you certainly put us, our families and guests at ease and successfully kept us all smiling, which is no mean feat with the number of photos you have to pose for on your wedding day!


The end result  was absolutely fantastic and we have a lovely Wedding Book and memories that we will cherish forever.


We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer to capture their special day and wish you and your family all the best.”

Jenny & Matt


Wedding: Bacup Methodist Church. Reception: The Red Hall, Bury, Lancashire.



“Thank you so much for being the photographer at our wedding, we have just sat showing our wedding book to friends again and still cannot believe how fantastic it is. Every-time we look at it we find something new that we like. Our friends and family continually comment on how lovely of a photographer you were, unlike many they have seen at other weddings!


From first meeting you and seeing your unique wedding books we knew you would make our special day more special, and you did, as you caught every moment of it so well.


Once again thanks to you for putting in all the effort you did into our big day. I know we will treasure our wedding book forever.”



Hazel & Dave

Wedding: Colne Parish Church, Colne. Reception: The Oaks Hotel, Burnley, Lancashire.


“When choosing a photographer we looked at the work of numerous photographers in the area. We were really impressed with the quality of your work and modern approach from the start and had no hesitation in choosing you.


On the day you were fantastic. You were highly professional and put everyone at ease when taking the photos. The photos within the church were out of this world – with amazing angle / views from the balcony. After the service  you managed to get all the shots we wanted without everyone having to stand around for a long time.


It was great on our honeymoon to be able to see all our photos after a few days. It was good fun choosing the picture for our thank you cards whilst being away.


We were really pleased how well you designed the Wedding Book. We were so looking forward to receiving our Wedding Book – and we were not disappointed!. The way you design and produce the Wedding Books is extremely stylish, high quality and modern. We really would highly recommend anybody to employ your skills as you captured the day perfectly and created an amazing Wedding Book we will treasure for the rest of our lives.


Thank you for all the work you have both put into everything – it is all much appreciated.


Best Wishes


Hazel & Dave”

Tash & Chris


Wedding: Emanuel Church Oswaldtwistle. Wedding Reception: The Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Accrington, Lancashire


Andrew was fabulous from start to finish. The magazines recommend to go for someone you connect with and from the moment Andrew started getting excited about the possibility of having the dogs at our wedding, we knew he was the one for us.


During the run up, he was there to offer advice no matter how small the query and was always willing to work with any ideas we had. We met up a few weeks prior to the wedding to discuss shots and angles and this really settled my mind knowing what to expect on the day.


When the day arrived, he was great. During the morning while I was getting ready, I hardly noticed he was there. I know from other weddings I've been to, Photographers tend to get a bit bossy with the guests, but David handled the larger group shots with a smile. Consequently the guests happy and relax attitude was definitely reflected in the photographs.


The images were post-processed so quickly that when we arrived at our Honeymoon destination we were able to enjoy flicking through our wedding memories online.


We couldn't be happier with the finished wedding book and would recommend Andrew to anyone.




Emma & Dan


Wedding: St Micheals Church Foldridge. Reception: Mytton Fold Hotel, Langho, Lancashire

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the fantastic wedding pictures - you managed to capture our wedding day so well.

I never realised how much energy was needed in getting all the planned photos taken while making sure everyone was happy and refreshed. David managed this process impeccably and made the whole experience an enjoyable one. I recommend Andrew Whalley wholeheartedly and think that the whole experience from our initial meeting, right through to getting the wedding book demonstrates excellent value for money considering the level of service and professionalism.”
