Wedding Testimonials

Thanks again Sara! We love the pics and had a ball with you on the day. Thanks for making everything so easy particularly since we planned our wedding from Australia. Scott and Andria x          Venue: The Midland Hotel, Manchester

Sara is brilliant at what she does and is a genuinely nice person too! We had her for our wedding and everyone commented on how lovely she was. She wasn’t interfering in anyway and the photos she took were gorgeous! I would recommend her to anyone!

Sarah and Eddie           Venue: The Midland Hotel, Manchester

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sara, she has been a pleasure to work with! She was very welcoming and made us at ease from our first meeting. She spent time ensuring our day ran as smoothly as possible and communicated well throughout the full process! Can’t wait to get all our pictures!

Thank you so much Sara for covering our wedding yesterday, you were absolutely fantastic and it was a real pleasure working with you. So many guests at the wedding said how lovely you were and you made it a truly great day xxxx

Frances and Umar          Venue: The Midland Hotel, Manchester


Thanks Sara,

For capturing our day just the way we’d hoped for.
We barely knew you were there (no offence, but that’s the way we wanted it!)
Stunning results with some truly amazing shots of people just naturally having a fantastic time. Also we can’t believe how good the ‘Staged’ Photos looked as you had to improvise with the space as the good old British Weather turned against us!
So glad we chose the professionals…
Many thanks
Paul and Meera. X            Venue: Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield


Anyway, I’d been meaning to get in touch to say how amazing you’ve been throughout the whole wedding process. Right from the start you put us at ease and we were so thrilled with our incredible photos and experience at the John Rylands Library – and couldn’t believe that was just the pre wedding shoot! 

As for the day itself, thank you so much for your stellar work! All of our guests commented upon how brilliant you were and how you affably and unobtrusively went about capturing every moment. I think there could be a few referrals in there for you 😉 

We are so excited for May 1st! We already know that the photos will be awesome and can’t wait to share them with friends and family. I also want to say a personal thank you to you for your calming presence in The Midland room before the ceremony. It was like I was getting ready with one of my good friends – I think I might even of asked you to pass me stuff as if you were one of the bridal party (!) – sorry about that and hope it came across as a compliment! 🙂 You were also excellent at calming me down re any sleep deprived dark circles and helped me to get into the spirit of what was a truly magical day!

I’m so pleased we chose Sara to photograph our wedding. From being a lovely and approachable person to producing excellent photos, Sara has been perfect throughout. She was happy to do what we wanted, but was so pleased with her suggestions too. Sara captured the day perfectly, and I’m really pleased with her blog which has summaried the day better than I ever could! Thank you again Sara, we are in your debt!

We can not recommend Sara Porter enough as a photographer, Sara was always our first choice to do the photography at our wedding having previously seen her work at my sister’s wedding.  Her attention to detail, vision and creativity was fantastic.  We did a wedding pre-shoot and Sara was great at getting us to relax and make us comfortable for the camera which ultimately put us more at ease on our big day.  We love our photos.  Catherine and Gareth.                        Venue: Grosvenor Hotel, Chester

Sara was the best choice we could have made for our wedding photographer. She is not only extremely good at what she does, she instantly put us at ease and nothing was too much trouble. The package we selected was perfect for us and the finished product far exceeded our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sara to any of our friends. Thank you so much Sara for helping make our day as special as it was.
Chris & Emma Scrivens                     Venue: The Midland Hotel, Manchester


Thanks for everything you did for us Sara. We were both nervous about having or photos taken but the engagement shoot helped put our minds completely at rest and we felt comfortable in front of the camera. You completely captured the mood we wanted and we loved them. The wedding pictures were even more amazing – everyone has said they’re the best wedding pictures they’ve seen. We can’t thank you enough – pictures we love and we’ll treasure forever, Lianne and Casey Beever xxxx                             Venue: Hilltop Country House, Macclesfield


We’d just like to say a massive THANK YOU for your role in our wedding day as we are absolutely delighted by the service you have provided.

I originally saw your wedding photography on a friend of a friend’s facebook and knew that you would be perfect from us, and meeting you face to face at a wedding fayre really confirmed this to me. I remember being so happy and overwhelmed by how quickly we clicked that I gave you a hug goodbye! You were very enthusiastic about my ideas (as unconventional as I thought you may find them) and added your own special touches along the way to make our photos perfect. You have been faultless at keeping in touch right from day one and very quickly understood what we – as a couple – are all about, and managed to capture this in your photos.
On the day of the wedding your co-ordination was perfect as you had prepared well knowing exactly what shots we wanted (and didn’t want!) and I didn’t feel embarrassed to tell you about angles I don’t like being photographed from, as vain as I was worried it would sound! You did not impose on our wedding day and whatever mixture of playful firmness you undertook in getting our rowdy lot together in the right place at the right time worked a treat and I didn’t have to worry once that someone was missing from a photo.
The main vibe that I really get from your work is that you are skilled at tailoring your photography style, subject, layout, lighting etc to really reflect your bride and groom. Our photos are on the whole traditional with quirky, romantic touches here which sums up the atmosphere of our day perfectly, and there and we will treasure them forever.
We have always felt very at ease with both you and Gordon and almost see you as extended members of the McBride family clan now… and we will definitely be asking you to do our future babies christening photos etc!
We can’t rate you highly enough Sara and will be (and have been) recommending you to everyone who will listen. We have received many compliments from both young and old wedding guest friends and family members alike, as it seems you made a great, humble and good-hearted impression (can’t say I’m surprised, we knew you would from the moment we met you.)
So please post my comments on your website if you wish and I’d welcome anyone who wants to contact me to find out more!
You’re an absolute gem, as is Gordon, and we will never be able to thank you enough for providing us with such beautiful memories immortalised that will last our lifetimes.
Thank you, for everything.
With love
Anna and Nav x                                 Venue: Worsley Park Marriott Hotel, Manchester

We asked Sara to be our wedding photographer because we liked her immediately and loved her work from samples she showed us when we first we met her. We were certainly not disappointed – she was fantastic!! She did our Engagement Photo shoot first which we both thoroughly enjoyed and were thrilled with the photos. She is extremely professional but also very friendly and approachable and when asked for advice gave thoughtful and brilliant support. We are so pleased with the photos, its hard to put into words just how pleased we are. She captured the mood and happiness of the entire day – they are all beautiful images and ones which we will always treasure. We can’t recommend her highly enough. Some of our wedding guests commented on how friendly and approachable Sara was and how she possesses an amazing skill of blending into the background but capturing moments in a very artistic way. Absolutely fantastic!!! Thanks Sara, love Anne & Eddie xxxx                          Venue: Glossop Cricket Club, High Peak

I could not thank you enough Sara for what you have done for us throughout our wedding experience.  From the first time you came and met me you completely put my mind at rest.  You were exactly what we had hoped for, funny, quirky, professional, warm and accomodating.  Throughout the build up to the wedding you were one of the few people I didn’t keep emailing and ringing because you had already set my mind at ease and kept to all your promises and deadlines.  When the day arrived and you arrived, it was like seeing a familiar friend, you were so unobtrusive and helpful.  30 million times on the day I must have called you  my  honorary bridesmaid cause every time I turned around, you were doing a crucial bridesmaid task that had been forgotten.  Throughout the day in the nicest way I hardly noticed you, but all my guests had as they kept raving about what an amazing phtographer we had.  You really made a great impression on all our guests and particularly on me.  I cannot thank you enough for how amazing you were with us on a very busy day.  Then came the actual photographs, all 300 of them on the website and I cannot tell you the amazing emotions that went through me as I looked at them all over and over again.  Every single one was amazing, you ‘got’ me and Jim, and everything we had asked of you and actually you obviously just knew from meeting us several times what sort of photographs we were wanting.  I truly cannot thankyou enough Sara, I could never have asked for more, you were the perfect photograper and the photographs are truly stunning, thankyou.
All our love Mandy and James Lee xxxxx                                            Venue: Penrith

Choosing Sara Porter as our wedding photographer was one of the first, and easiest, decisions we made! Having had her shoot a family portrait a year earlier we knew Sara was the fun yet efficient photographer we needed!
After booking our ‘big day’ date at Windy Harbour Farm, Glossop, we met to discuss wedding photo ideas and create a plan. Sara’s knowledge and experience made the whole planning process really straightforward which immediately eased worries we had about keeping ALL our family happy!
On the day many of our guests commented on how friendly Sara was, and later, on how well our wedding photographs captured the atmosphere of the day.
From beginning to end Sara was organised, creative and professional. It was a pleasure to have Sara be a part of our wedding day, and we would recommend her without hesitation.
Claire and Mike McGrail                                                  Venue: Windy Harbour Hotel, Glossop

Engaged Sara for our wedding photos and from the first meeting to getting the results were highly impressed, her attention to detail, creativity and understanding of our wishes were second to none, I could not recommend Sara enough and will look forward to working with her again in the future
Daniel and Peter                                          Venue: The Midland Hotel, Manchester

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help and of course the photography at our wedding! You were so great at relaxing us both and getting everybody together. We adore all of the photos and we’re going to find it very hard to choose.
Deanna and Matthew                                Venue: The Royal Hotel, Hayfield, Derbyshire

A huge, huge thank you for being our wedding photographer you did a brilliant job with the day and the people!!!!
Becks and Mike                                               Venue: Chatsworth House, Derbyshire

We’ve just been on the website, we are so pleased with our photos. You were amazing on the day. Nick and I are so very pleased we found you and now seeing the photos we are blown away!
Thank you so much, I had no idea it would be so much fun.
Rachael and Nick                                          Venue:

The best photographer we can ever ask for, not only a great photographer but also a wedding day planner and organiser. We are so lucky having you!

Paul and Iris

I have just been looking at our daughters wedding album on your website.
There are some stunners in there, I think you have done a fantastic job.
You have captured some beautiful, individual and personal moments that went to making up a very special day.
Making up an album of the weekend will be an absolute pleasure, and something we will treasure.
