What some of our clients think...

"We received the disc today and we are so pleased with our wedding photographs.  It has been quite emotional looking at them and you have really done an amazing job and captured the happiness of the day.  They all look so natural and professional and we will treasure them forever.  You are a credit to your profession.  We are looking forward to sharing them on our website with family and friends.  Thanks again."  Sally & Iain, Derwent Manor, April 2013

"Stuart did an amazing job of capturing our day. We are over the moon with our photographs and have had so many lovely comments about how beautiful they are. He was professional from start to finish and made such an impression on our guests that they are forever commenting on how nice he was. It was a real pleasure to have him there on the day and we can not recommend him enough."  Fay & Steven, Otterburn Hall, December 2012

"Stuart produced a truly memorable set of photographs of our wedding day. He was clear and understanding in discussions ahead of the event and put our minds at rest that everything would run smoothly.  On the day, he was utterly discrete and unobtrusive.  The photographs we received are incredible, even better than we were hoping for and all at a very competitive price."  Louise & Mark, Dissington Hall, September 2012

"Picking a wedding photographer is one of the hardest choices to make when planning a wedding, but Stuart was so reassuring and knew exactly the style of photography that we wanted; he gave us every confidence that he would capture the day, and all those little things that we might not see ourselves.  From the word go Stuart was greatly attentive, he was always happy to hear from us - replying to all emails promptly, and on the day was extremely patient, especially when it came to taking outside shots of family and friends when the majority of people were inside propping up the bar.  All our guests commented on how friendly and professional Stuart was and how he was able to capture the day in a very unobtrusive manor.  We are so glad we picked Stuart to be our wedding photographer, our wedding day was perfect and every single picture captures this. We now have a beautiful album which we are so proud of and will cherish forever.  Thank you, Stuart!"  Sarah and Dave, Longhirst Hall, August 2012

"A big thank you to Stuart for capturing a special moment in our lives. His service from start to finish was faultless, friendly and exceptional. He has captured the whole day that exceeds our expectations and the photographs will continue telling the story of a special day for a lifetime."  Kaman & Kam, Kirkley Hall, July 2012

"We just want to say a huge thanks for all your work on our wedding photos. We absolutely adore all of them, I canít pick a favourite! The first time we looked through them I did honestly feel that I was re-living my wedding day and each time since then, as you've captured the mood and emotion of the day beautifully, it just brings back great memories of the day.  Family and friends have raved about your talents and we are so thankful that you agreed to work with us. We have already recommended your services to close friends and would not hesitate to do so again."  Laura & Mike, York Pavilion Hotel, June 2012

"After viewing the wedding portfolio of Union32 we knew immediately that Stuart was the right photographer to capture our wedding day. We took our time and looked at many alternative photographers but they were the just the 'same old' shots you see everywhere. Union32 had 'edge' to their shots and stood out a mile from the crowd. Being in the Design industry myself I would like to think I have a keen eye for this sort of thing and am quite particular. Our choice was perfect and we are delighted with the finished shots. Stuart listened and provided the shots we wanted as well adding his own ideas. The way in which Stuart communicated with our guests were as if he was a guest himself and he blended in perfectly. We would recommend Union32 to any of our close friends and family."  Lisa & Chris, Close House, June 2012

"A big thank you to Stuart for capturing our special day. The photos taken of our special day are natural and beautiful.  Stuart blended into the wedding party very naturally and was highly spoken of by our guests.  We would highly recommend Union32 photography to any future brides and grooms to be."   Claire & Craig, Beamish Hall, April 2012

"Having you take our wedding photographs was wonderful.  You have captured the whole day perfectly and have given us very special memories.  You made the whole experience relaxed and put everyone at ease - something only a true professional can do.  PS, Mum says thank you for giving her a lift to the church!"  Sarah & Andrew, Trinity Church & The Marriott Hotel Gosforth, January 2012

"Stuart captured our happy day perfectly and delivered exactly what we had asked for.  We wanted a very relaxed and casual approach to our photos and Stuart managed to almost blend into the background with fantastic results with some great natural shots that really capture the happy atmosphere of the day and which we will treasure forever.  Thanks very much Stuart."  Ailsa & Michael, As You Like It, December 2011

'Stuart has an excellent rapport with people and put everybody at ease on our special day.  Stuart was able to capture our friends and family in some fantastic natural shots which encapsulated their personalities perfectly.  The priest does not often allow photographs to be taken in church, but Stuart put him at ease and was able to take some superb shots.  Stuart made two forty something's look like we were in our twenties again!  Our photographs are amazing, the service was superb and we would have no hesitation in recommending Union32 for your wedding."  Frances & Rob, St Godric's Church & Bistro 21, October 2011

"We canít thank Stuart enough for the fantastic job he did photographing our wedding. We were specific in what we wanted and he more than exceeded our expectations, Stuart was so friendly and approachable and gave us a first class service. The photos are fantastic and he captured the whole day perfectly. Would highly recommend." Karen & Jim, County Thistle Hotel, October 2011

"Stuart was a superb asset to our wedding! Our memories wouldn't be the same without him. From the very first conversation we knew that we had chosen the right photographer. We felt that he was there for us and was happy to do what ever we asked. Very talented photographer and sociable person makes him the greatest professional to have at a wedding. Stuart was at the venue nice and early to ensure that he didn't miss any of the action. There wasn't a moment we saw Stuart sitting down, that was when we did see him! We were amazed when we received the photos how much behind the scenes action he was able to catch. He didn't intrude at all but he kept in mind our plans that we had made with him. We were blessed with a dry summer's day where we were able to get some lovely beach shots. We were impressed at his stamina and athletic ability to keep up with us! Dedication!! Thank you profusely for all the effort you put into our day and for the lending of your talents to enable us to live our day a little longer through the atmospheric pictures you produced for us." Anna & Craig, Seaham, September 2011

"We canít thank Stuart enough for the fantastic job he did photographing our wedding. Throughout the whole process Stuart provided a friendly but highly professional service and was always on hand to answer any queries we may have had. On the day he made everyone feel at ease and was not intrusive in the least. In fact he proved to be quite a hit with the older ladies, several who thought he was just a friend whoíd turned up to take a few snaps! The results of Stuartís labour certainly captured the mood of our big day, managing to show the intimacy of the venue but also the great happiness of what was being celebrated. Once again I canít praise Stuartís work highly enough and would certainly recommend him to anyone knowing that they wonít be disappointed."  Leonore & Graeme, Sunderland Quayside Exchange, July 2011

"Stuart was brilliant from start to finish. We were very specific in what we wanted and he more than exceeded our expectations. He has a natural style that is relaxed and professional and he captured our day brilliantly, everyone commented on how wonderful the resulting shots were. We cannot recommend Union 32 highly enough."  Eve & Gareth, Woodhill Hall, June 2011

"We booked Stuart for our wedding at the Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle. Despite the fact I live in Norway, Stuart made this an easy and stress-free experience. He was very friendly and really contributed to the feeling of the day. The quality of his photographs and editing were second to none. Thanks very much Stuart!"  Kirstin & Michael, Royal Station Hotel, November 2011

"Stuart captured our day wonderfully and was professional and friendly throughout the booking process and on the day itself. We hardly noticed he was there clicking away, he managed to convey all the love and laughter the day held into all of the pictures. We would highly recommend Union32 to any couple planning their big day; we love everyone of our pictures. Thank you!"  Laura & Kevin, Pinchinthorpe Hall, October 2010

"We were extremely impressed with the top class service we received from Stuart before the wedding, on the day and after. Our wedding day was captured so well thanks to Stuart's professional, non-intrusive style. We have recently received our album and are over the moon with it Ė itís amazing! We love the amazing range of shots, which completely capture the great atmosphere of the day. Thank you so much, we would highly recommend your service."  Sarah & Phil, Langley Castle, July 2010

"Stuart delivered exactly what we asked for, intimate pictures that not only captured everyone personality but really told the story of the day, beautifully finished and the best bit was that Stuart mingled flawlessly with the guests so that you didn't even know you were being photographed, ideal for the camera shy like, ourselves.  Thanks so much for some stunning photography."   Denise & Chris, Hotel Du Vin, September 2010

"Our photographs were beautiful very relaxed completely what we wanted and asked for I love them they capture our day perfectly till the very end and will save our memories forever thanks so much."   Vicki & Craig, Ramside Hall, September 2010

"We both thought your service was excellent. You put us at ease when we were making the initial selection of a photographer on the day with a proposal that both met our needs (the requirement to receive a digital copy of the photos was a must) and also in line with our budget.  On the day you offered a friendly service and produced a wonderful selection of shots with a little bit more imagination than we had seen in other wedding photos. Many guests commented on how unobtrusive the photography was, yet you got so many of them at their natural best, rather than in 'staged poses', which was exactly what we were after.  Many thanks for helping to keep our memories of a fabulous day alive through our photographs.  I would highly recommend you to anyone who wanted a professional yet friendly service."   Meg & Harvey, Horton Grange, June 2010

"Stuart provided a first class personal and professional service. He spent time getting to know our needs and mingled with the guests through out the day.  When we received our photos both Laura, myself and all of our friends and family were blown away with how good they were. It brought back the memories of a fantastic day and every picture told a story. We are both extremely grateful for the time and effort put in by Stuart.  Laura and Graham, Rothbury, May 2010

"Stuartís easy going manner was just what we needed both in the run up and on the day, his non-intrusive and friendly style meant he slotted in with our friends and family easily to produce photos that captured both the emotional and the party atmosphere Ė the photos are a perfect portrait of what made us both laugh and cry on the day.  We could not be more pleased."     Rosie & Roger.  Lumley Castle,  April 2010
