“I couldn’t of wished for a better photographer! I am literally so pleased we chose you! Photography is such an important part of a wedding and the fact you have captured the most beautiful memories of us with our families really is something special. Your work is incredible and you really are a credit to the photography industry.

You were so easy going and so passionate about your pictures. We can not thank you enough for your incredible work and can not wait to see the rest of the photographs!”

Zoe and John, Chelmsford, Essex.

We have laughed and cried through the slideshow – it’s amazing how you remember the exact moments that they were taken, and yet without them, the ceremony seemed a blur. So pleased that you both captured the day so perfectly. I cannot begin to thank you enough.”

Nicki and Peter, Southend, Essex.

“Gary was the right man for the job and we couldn’t have found better. He was great with all our guests; including the children who at times didn’t want to co-operate. Gary had a way of making the photos all run smoothly, and managed to convince even those small guests who didn’t want to co-operate that they did really want their photos done.

All the guests have sang Gary’s praises and mentioned how polite, down to earth and professional he was. I personally do not like photos of myself and feel very awkward in front of a camera; half the time I didn’t even realise Gary was there and he made us all feel very at ease. He was a pleasure to work with and we are so grateful he agreed to be our photographer!”

Maria and Steve, Basildon, Essex.

sarahsimon“I just want to thank you for our gorgeous photos and for all the work you put into our special day. It was great fun working with you and trying out our ideas!

I still don’t know how you managed to remember everyone’s names when organising us all and everyone has commented how professional and enthusiastic you were.

But best of all is the photos! We love them, from the standard group shots to the silly ‘Sarah pose’ ones, and especially the more creative evening shots. It’s almost a shame I can’t get married again to get more done!.

Sarah and Simon Curtis, Great Wakering, Essex.

hayleyaaron“We wanted to say that we are absolutely delighted with all the photographs. You’ve captured every moment in such a way that it brings back all the feelings from the day just by looking at the image – from the morning nerves of the Bride, to the emotion in the church, to the party atmosphere in the evening.

For somebody who could be considered as quite early on in their career, you have an amazing demeanour and not only made Aaron and I feel at ease, but you showed such professionalism and incredible organisation, particularly with our large number of guests. In fact, many of our wedding guests commented on what a fantastic job you did – “he really knows what he’s doing” was a recurrent comment throughout the day!

Your desire for the best possible shots shone through and is clear for all to see in the final images. We can’t wait to show our album off! We really do wish you all the best for the future and will be recommending you to everybody.

Hayley and Aaron Osborn, Southend, Essex.

We couldn’t have asked for a nicer, friendlier and more skillful guy. (And not to forget his Dad who also had a big part in the photos on the day). They both made us feel so comfortable and a lot of the photos we received we didn’t even know they’d been taken so were a lovely surprise!

The photo album Gary produced for my parents is amazing and they want to pass on their massive thanks for it and the calendar, which was not expected. They couldn’t be happier with it.

Anyway, thanks again Gary, you will definitely be the photographer to recommend, and we will always be grateful for making our day even more special..

Lianne and Rod Inglis, Eastwood, Essex.

grapa“Thank you for providing such a fantastic photography service and beautiful engagement shoot and wedding photos.

Loads of our guests commented on what a brilliant photographer you were and how easily you mangaged our big group photos.”

Grace and Paul, Rayleigh, Essex.

rebgar“Just want to say what a positive experience we had having Gary as our wedding photographer this Easter. Right from our first meeting, his friendly manner put us at ease and gave us confidence that we’d made the right choice in photographer.

On the wedding day he created such a relaxed atmosphere for the taking of the photos, whilst managing to get them all taken so quickly & efficiently, that we were surprised at just how many high quality photos himself & Paul managed to capture. A lot of our guests also commented positively on his professionalism & efficiency.

As we knew a number of couples whose wedding albums had taken a long time to sort out with their photographers after their weddings, we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly Gary got our album completed for us to such a high quality: he clearly works very hard in the studio. So many of the engagement shoot & wedding photos have become firm favourites of ours. Indeed a 75cm x 50cm aluminium print of a photo from the engagement shoot has taken pride of place on our living room wall!

It was a pleasure dealing with Gary. No request was too much hassle, especially considering he offered so much more value for money than any of the other photographers we considered. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer to capture their special day.”

Rebekah and Gareth, Shoeburyness, Essex.

katiemould“Defiantly worth more than 5 stars!!. Gary was FAB from the word go. Fantastic photos, tear-jerking album and many memories of a wonderful wedding day. I cant recommend Gary highly enough. Everyone commented on how laid back and calm Gary and his Dad made everyone on the day (including a stressed and nervous Bride!) and how professional and talented you are. Thanks so so much to you and your services over the past 18 months – we will definatly use you again in the future :o) “

Katie and Dan Mould, Romford, Essex.

“Thank you Gary for all your help on the day, also the other days you helped, coming over to discuss things and the engagement photos. Also the work you did after to edit the shots and to organise other bits. Everything was great and so much more than we expected. It was hard to narrow down our favourite photos as there were so many. If we need any more photos doing we would love to use you again. Thank you from Mr and Mrs stokes “

Wedding photography in Southend Essex“Gary Derbridge was an excellent choice as our wedding photographer. He was very patient dealing with our requests and extremely quick to reply to any questions we had prior, during and after our wedding day.

On the day itself Gary was a true professional; getting amazing shots whilst maintaining a low-profile during the proceedings. He made everyone feel completely at ease, which was portrayed in the fantastic pictures he took, and helped maintain a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

We are extremely pleased with our photos and would strongly recommend Gary Derbridge to our friends and family.”
