Looking forward to going through the images on the USB tonight.

I just wanted to say thank you ever so much!!! You’re work is beautiful and we are so happy with our photos. They really capture our day and are exactly what we were hoping for.
I also want to thank you for making me feel so comfortable and at ease. For someone who hates having their photo taken, and any photos of myself, you made me feel great and I love all of the photos you have done for us. I can’t thank you enough.
Laura and Kwesi
Just wanted to drop you an email to let you know we recieved our beautiful wedding album today along with the calendar too (such a lovely touch, thank you… this went straight up on the wall!)

They truly are amazing, thank you so much for all your hard work and effort you have put in.
We really are grateful.
I hope you are well, can’t explain how chuffed to bits we are with your work!”
Many thanks for sending the link through, we absolutely love them! We had a look at them last night and we have so many favourites, they are stunning and they have exactly the look we wanted. Thank you so much for doing such a lovely job.
I am just in the process of emailing the link and password out to family and friends. We have both liked you on Facebook and we are more than happy for you to post a link to a blog with some of the photographs. There are none we would like to view only privately, as I said we just love them all! Many thanks again,”
Hannah & Andrew
We just received the albums (and the calendar, how sweet of you) – they look fantastic and we are both very happy with them.
Thank you again for being our photographer and providing us with an album we will treasure forever.”
“I love the pictures!!!! They are stunning!!!!!!! Thank you so much 🙂 “
We just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you so much for everything you did on Sunday. You were amazing and you met all our requests I really appreciated you being so dedicated and making sure you got the photos when the weather wasn’t at its best. We had so many lovely comments from our guests saying how friendly and professional you were and I couldn’t agree more! I can’t wait to see the photos I know they’ll be amazing!
Thank you so much for everything you did in making our day extra special!
Emma and Lee
“Just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing photographs. You made us both feel very comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, it felt more like going for a walk with a friend than a photographer. We are thrilled with the photos and can’t wait to share them with our friends and family.”
Jamie & Sarah
our album and loved it! Everyone said it was one of the best albums they have
ever seen,.. So thank you Peter”
“A huge thank you to Pete for creating an amazing story book of our wedding day that we will deeply appreciate forever.
Pete was brilliant on the day with his professional, extremely enthusiastic and quirky approach. A lot of the guests commented on how lovely Pete was and excited to see all of his pictures.
Considering we got married on the shortest day of the year, which rained all day, Pete really used this to take some amazing pictures searching for certain lights, shadows and shapes throughout Grittleton.
Pete really made an effort to understand us and we felt this really showed in our pictures.
We cant thank Pete enough and would recommend him to anyone”
Kirsty & James
Thank you so much! The photos are brilliant. Everything and more that we hoped they would be. It was a real joy having our photos taken by you. We were a little nervous at the start but you really made us both feel at ease. We will certainly be sending the link and password onto our family and friends.
Thank you once again,”
We love the photos! You captured the feel of the day so wonderfully, it is great to see our friends and family, their reactions and enjoyment. The shots down by the river were particularly beautiful as we’re so many others, and quite a number made us laugh as well. Thank you so much. You made the both of us and all of our guests feel comfortable and it was a lot of fun you being part of our day.
Best wishes and friendship,
Annik and Michael”
Hope all is well! The photos are fabulous! I’ve really enjoyed going through them and showing friends.
“Wow, love them so much!
Only had a once through so looking forward to going through them again!!!!
“Andrew and I cannot thank Peter enough for the incredible job he did capturing our magical day. I know all brides say this, but Peter’s work is truly outstanding. We have been so, so proud showing off our photographs to our friends and family, and the feedback we’ve had about the photos has been just incredible. Our friends cannot believe the shots and have said they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen. If that isn’t testament to Peter’s ability, we don’t know what is!
Peter is also fantastic to work with; very calm and considered on the day – which as a Bride & Groom is exactly what you want as the nerves kick in! He was simply brilliant with all of our guests – from age 18mths to 89 years…. he captured everyone beautifully, and really put us all at ease.
Peter tells a beautiful story with his work, and the filters and colours used are everything we’d hoped for; it gave our vintage 1950′s Hollywood wedding a real touch of elegance and class. Thank you so much Peter. Thanks to you and your tireless efforts on the day we now have a beautiful collection of images we will treasure for a lifetime.
If you’re searching for an outstanding photographer that will really bring out the best in you, your family and your friends, for whatever occasion, you’ve found him. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Peter.
Thank you again”.

We will look forward to sharing these with friends and family!

Thanks so much for your email yesterday – we love love love the photos, I have looked at them a million times already and Ed is very pleased too!! Thanks”
Lauren and Ed
I wanted to email to say thank you so much. The pictures are AMAZING. I can’t wait to see the slide show and get the memory stick so I can print off lots of pictures for my photo album.
Wow! Thank you so very much. They are amazing. I was going to run through the numbers I particularly liked but there are just too many. You have absolutely captured the spirit of the day – I love the shots of everything set up in the yurt, all the ice cream shots, the skittles and sweets in the tree. The pictures of our friends and family are wonderful and in particular the many fantastic shots of the children; and I adore the ones of me and John, especially 22, 23 & 24 (what a clever idea to use the field and I love the colours) and John loves the ice cream ones (14 & 15). We can’t wait to get the dvds and will struggle to choose which prints to order!
Thank you so very much again!”
We have received the USB and we are so happy with the photographs- they are lovely. We will let you know which photos we would like when we have chosen; they are all so nice.
Thanks for letting us see a preview of the photographs, they are really beautiful and we are so excited to see the rest!
We have you on Facebook already, so feel free to upload the photographs.

Thank you so much for the photos we have seen so far-we can’t wait to see the rest! We had a wonderful wedding day and you have helped preserve some very special memories for us.
James and Philippa
“Just a small note to say thank you for your photography before and on our wedding day.
The pre-wedding photos are absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed having you around and felt really comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera – We did feel a bit nervous as we are both very shy and critical of ourselves of the way we appear in photographs – the photos speak for themselves – they’re gorgeous and much more than we could ever have expected.
Can’t wait for our wedding photos now.
Kasia & Frank”
“WOW Peter!!!! I knew after seeing our pre-wedding pictures I could expect something amazing, and gosh was I right! I’m absolutely speechless – you’re a magician!!!”
“Hi Peter, I just need to say it again: I new I had the best photographer from the moment we hired you, but last night when I got the chance to properly look at all the pictures, and began to get teary-eyed it confirmed YOU WERE THE BEST!!!! When a bride can look at the photos and feel the same emotion as her wedding day it’s simply magical.
I’ve showed our pictures to people that couldn’t be there with us, and even the ones that were, couldn’t believe that all those pictures were taken by ONE PERSON! Words cannot express my gratitude for all your hard work. Thank you, thank you, thank you xxxxx”
Just thought I’d let you know that they picked our wedding to be featured in “the guide for brides” magazine 🙂
How exciting 🙂
And it’s all thanks to you :)”
The pics look great, we’ve loved looking over them again and again!”

It’s really lovely, and tells the story of the day really well. Brings it all back.
Jan & Gary
Thank you for these. Rachel and I extremely pleased with the photos. We’re delighted with the way in which you captured the day.
There are some fantastic shots of our friends and family. We really appreciate the lengths you went to including crawling through the undergrowth next to the River Kennet and hanging up in the Church rafters to get a birds eye view of the ceremony!
Thanks for everything you did for us on the day – you helped make the day run smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed having you as our wedding photographer.

Chloé & Tom
“We booked Peter Smart as our photographer for our wedding which took place near St Paul’s, Central London. We were very impressed with his approach to photography from the onset. At the initial planning meeting we had with Peter, he came across as extremely professional and showed us a wide range of photographs and photography styles that he had used with previous clients.
Peter explained us alot of technical and artistic detail and included us in the decision making process on our preferences for the day. He also carried out background research on the wedding venue and surrounding areas before the event, and was well prepared on the best spots and shots for photographs on the day. We really liked his ‘reportage’ approach as he was capturing events as they unfolded and he also fulfilled our requests for formal shots too.
The photographs were prepared in a timely manner and exceeded all our expectations. Peter is a very knowledgable and talented photographer and takes pride in his work.
We would whole-heartedly recommend Peter as a photographer for any event in the future.”
Suzan and Gunnar
Thank you so much for the wedding photographs, they’re absolutely amazing. We will treasure them forever!
We would love for you to make us an album with our favourite photographs, as I’m sure you will do a great job of that too.”
Rebecca and Joe
Words cant describe how much we like these pictures. I must say from the first day we met Julie and I were 100% confident that you would capture what we wanted on our Wedding day. We loved your ideas and the fact you took so many natural shots of us. I will be recommending you to a number of friends, Thanks.”
Mike and Julie
Wow I am so impressed thanks so much, you have worked incredibly hard on these, they are beyond good! Can’t wait to email the link to all
the guests so that they can see them.”
Thanks for putting the photos up – they’re fantastic. Feel free to put them on Facebook!”
Jo & Ryan
The photos are fantastic – thank you so much. They truly capture the day and are a fantastic reminder of it.”
Helen & Domonic
“We’d really recommend Peter as a wedding photographer. He was up for humouring our ideas and was able to blend in with a very casual wedding. The photos themselves were amazing – very high-quality images and some wonderfully intimate shots without intruding into the day itself.
We particularly liked the journalistic-style capture of events as they happened and the photos all seem very natural. It was all very reasonably priced too – Peter was able to strip out costs for things that we just didn’t want and price in things that we really did – very flexible.
We’d enthusiastically recommend Peter as a wedding photographer.”
Dave & Vicky
I love the pictures, they look fabulous!!!”
How are you?
Huge thanks for our amazing photographs, we absolutely love them! I think my personal favourite is the one of Henry and I in the car driving past Silbury Hill, such a lovely picture and also a complete surprise! I’m really pleased with the range and selection of photos taken and really like the way that they look so different in colour, sepia and black and white.”
“Thank you Peter for the amazing wedding photos you did for Mark and myself. You captured the real us. We had an amazing day and the photographs are what will keep those memories alive. Your work is astounding. It was a real pleasure to work with you, from the moment we had our first pre wedding meeting we knew you were the photographer for us! We would highly recommend you with a 100% confidence that anyone who chose you as their photographer would share the smiles and sheer pleasure we both have gained from every photo you have done for us. We hope to work with you again in the future. All the very best wishes.”
Mr & Mrs Archer! xxx
“Thank you so much for our lovely photos!”
“The photographs turned out to be fantastic, both the formal posed photographs and the informal ones taken during the preparations in the morning and throughout the evening at the reception. We were also surprised at how beautifully presented the photographs were when they arrived in the post. We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter Smart to anyone considering him as photographer for their wedding or other event.”
Lois & Ben
“We couldn’t wait to log on to the slide-show to see the photos – they are stunning, we love them!! You’ve done such a fabulous job and they capture our day perfectly pre, during and post ceremony! Everyone has said how beautiful the photos are – people have commented on the really unique style of photography which we love! Throughout the whole process, from our first meeting at our house to the supply of the hundreds of photos, you made the photography part of our wedding a very enjoyable process”.
