Oct 20, 2017 8:57:29 AM
Paula - Where and how do I start to choose? You have captured some amazing moments that are breathtaking. It's so difficult but here are my choices;1 - the bride and groom kneeling at the alter with the little bridesmaid straightening her dress, I love the fact that the groom has 'help' on the soles of his shoes, it makes me think of Prince Charming 2 - the picture of the little girls feet in the brides shoes with the bouquet next to it, it makes me think 'one day I'd like to walk in mammy's shoes.I'd love to choose more! xx
Oct 20, 2017 8:54:34 AM

Oct 20, 2017 7:31:27 AM
Lynsey Procter - Wow, so many beautiful photographs and all so different. What a range of naturally candid shots along with some stunning arrangements. I really love the black and white one of the couple with their heads almost touching and the black and white one of the little girl applying lipstick to her friend. Not that I don't love the vividly coloured ones but they stand out for me.
Oct 20, 2017 7:28:59 AM
Gemma Robinson - I adore all of your photos diane, the little girl wrestling with the vail is stunning and the one of the groom crying and his face in his hands, it makes me want to get married again just to book you as my photographer! Simply stunning! xxx
Oct 20, 2017 6:39:30 AM
Debbie - All of them are great Diane but I think my two favourites are:1) The little girl with the hair curlers in, she looks so happy.2) The four children sitting on a log, it's so naturally done.
Oct 20, 2017 6:17:09 AM
Karen Lynch - It's quite hard to choose just two images, but my choices are the fifth photo showing the wedding couple against the orange moody sky, and the final photo showing the wedding couple next to the water with the contrast between the green and copper trees.
Oct 20, 2017 4:01:39 AM
Caroline Johnston. - I love the image of all the groomsmen having a piggy back race! Love real moments like that captured! I also love the image of the bride coming out of the church holding her flowers in the air! You’ve caught how happy she is perfectly!
Oct 20, 2017 3:06:28 AM

Oct 20, 2017 2:17:52 AM
Sarah Kirkby - My first favourite image has to be of my own wedding (I know, biased for sure). The photo where we are kneeling at the alter and my beautiful bridesmaid is arranging my dress, a job she continued to do so well the whole day! I think it is truly beautiful. My second favourite imagine is of the bride and groom stood under a beautiful orange sky, her veil is blowing in the wind and it looks truly magical. What a perfect background to a beautiful moment for the bride and groom. All the photos are just wonderful
Oct 20, 2017 2:14:33 AM
Sharon carr - My first fav image is of Amanda wedding, her reflection in the mirror, is just stunning , the light reflecting from her face and her eyes loon amazing, this is all the families fav image from her wedding.The second is the lady with the fan covering half her face, this is stunning also, you capture something amazing there x

sue - Such lovely images Di, it's hard to choose! My favourites are the bride and groom under the autumn trees and the couple on the hay bale, but I must mention the gorgeous bride and groom in the car under the umbrella, my lovely niece and her husband, this happy image perfectly captures a wonderful day!
Oct 20, 2017 1:32:00 AM
Sarah Thompson - OH MY!!!! Where to start...all of these are fantastic in their own way. The colours that are captured and the way you tell the story in all of your pictures is just amazing. My 2 favourite have to be the lady with the blonde hair on her own in the blk and white shot - she is beautiful and true emotion on her face is lovely to see and shows how special her day was. The other apart from my own (haha) would have to be the last one. The sun shining through its just beautiful.I am so pleased i didn't choose anyone other than you to share our day with. I am yet to make my album i have so many beautiful pictures!My heart just smiles with joy when i look at my wedding day. Thank you so much xxxxxx
Oct 20, 2017 12:59:33 AM
Vicky - Such a hard choice Diane, they're all beautiful! The two that stood out for me were 1. The one with the bride and groom and their bridesmaids in the red dresses and their partners and 2. The bride and groom silhouette with the orange sky! Amazing!
Oct 19, 2017 4:13:06 PM
Tracey Locke - Ohhh Diane these are all so amazing you're such a talented young lady.1. They very last one, autumn leaves on the trees and the happy couple reflecting on the water.2. The black and white image of the groom and bestman having a moment. Please keep posting and showing off your work xxx
Oct 19, 2017 12:20:24 PM
FIONA WINN - Hard to choose, Diane! But I think the lady peeking over the fan and the little girl arranging the back of the bride's dress, are two of my favourites. The fan image for the composition and the 'wow' factor eyes and the little girl for the sentiment.xxx
Oct 19, 2017 12:05:49 PM
Conor hardy - I wonder which image will be chosen you have a wonderful talent diane and would love for you to teach me your wonderful skills

Oct 19, 2017 11:04:09 AM
Debi - Wow! What a challenge having to pick only two. They're all absolutely beautiful. I love the black and white image of the bride looking down with the veil over her and the little boy with the suit and blue tie on walking down the aisle. What a cutie! X

Oct 19, 2017 9:16:08 AM
Maria - It's so difficult to choose just two favourites, all of your images are stunning Di! I have to pick probably my all time favourite - the black and white image of the little girl applying lip gloss for the bridesmaid...you've captured the concentration on her little face perfectly! I also love the image of the couple with the setting sun behind them - the sky looks incredible and it's a beautiful setting for the happy couple! xx
Oct 19, 2017 7:23:42 AM
Mandy - All of your photos are amazing Di! I especially love the one with the lady holding the fan over her face, it really compliments the lady's eyes and it is such a gorgeous shot! Also I love the shot with the little girl with the rollers in her hair, it's such a gorgeous happy shot for a lovely happy day xx

Louisa bell - Such a hard choice there all Fab! But too me the ones that stood out were. The one where there all sitting on hay bails!love this ! Such a great idea ! And. The four children sitting on a large wood log , lovely photo captured! All beautiful photographs though! I think these two make it look like quite a relaxed day !normal and fun ! Natural ! Louisa xx
Oct 19, 2017 12:29:12 AM
Debbie Longlands - Hard choice! They're all unique and precious images capturing special moments from a once in a lifetime day. However the two that stood out to me were:1) the dusk shot with the brides veil floating in the breeze, we can't see their faces, only silhouettes, we can only imagine what they're doing, so intimate but private at the same time; and2) the groom who has obviously been overcome with emotion, how special. It's not often men do this publicly, a very special moment so well captured. Well done on making our choices so difficult x
Oct 18, 2017 11:43:32 PM
gail watson - All beautiful Diane but the 2 that stand out for me are 1, the bride coming through the arch of flowers, such a natural shot, and2, the little boy walking up the aisle with the turquoise cravat , he looks adorable , we love following your work Diane xx
Oct 18, 2017 4:27:01 PM
Tracey Dobson - Very hard decision with so many incredible images. However I loved the group shot on the bales of hey! Wow! What a great idea, so different to the norm! Such a simple idea but so effective. The second shot is the black and white documentary style image of the tiny bridesmaid behind the bride & groom who are kneeling at the alter. Such a beautiful shot, capturing such a unique moment forever. Stunning x
Oct 18, 2017 3:41:39 PM
Claire Hunter - Really tough choice.1.I love the beautiful lady with the fan in front of her face her eyes look amazing 2.The two handsome men by the tree (yes the one both the big man and little man) love the adoring look and he's so smart in his little suit
Oct 18, 2017 2:46:03 PM
Helen Dodd - Your images are all amazing Diane, we were so lucky to have you From your gallery my favourites are: 1. The lady with blue eyes looking over the blue fan. Before our wedding I have never seen an image like this, so unique, so clever and a really different perspective on bride close ups!! 2. The little lad in front of the love sign, I feel this really embodies the breadth of what weddings are about, not just the bride and groom but while families . I have to mention our own confetti shot too. This is my favourite of all our images, the walk out of he chapel went so fast, and the confetti throw so unexpected... the emotions bottled up from so many months of planning and waiting and wondering were all released in those few seconds and I have never been happier I don’t think in my entire life.
Oct 18, 2017 2:35:30 PM
Karen Turner - I absolutely adore the photo of the bride & groom with the fireworks in the background. It’s simple, romantic & magical, just like a scene from Disney! Who wouldn’t want your wedding photos to look like a Disney scene.I also love the photo of the little boy walking down the aisle, you can just imagine him thinking ‘how much longer do I have to wait till the party??’ Diane, you’re amazing & I still love looking at our wedding photos, they always make me so emotional. Thank you x
Oct 18, 2017 2:31:45 PM
Kirsten - I love the children sitting with the balloons the colours are lovely. It’s hard to choose I have lots of favourites but I’d also say the last picture with the trees and water. So much going on in one image it works so well.All amazing as always Diane xx
Oct 18, 2017 1:34:59 PM
Emma Dunn - Such a talented photographer and so many amazing photos to choose from! A couple of our wedding photos are on there so it's them i like the best!! Full shot of the Bride and groom in the sunset, with the pink sky and the light on the couple and the 2nd shot is a silhouette of the bride and groom where the wind catches the veil.
Oct 18, 2017 1:33:20 PM
Deb Johnson - Harry and Lisa's wedding at Alnwick gardens holds a very special place in my heart! Just love the coloured picture of them in the gardens, and Lisa looking oitnof the car window! ❤️
Oct 18, 2017 1:26:04 PM
sue peat - The first photo i absolutely live is the Bride who is crying with the veil over her face. You’ve captured so much emotion in her face.The second one is the little girl in purple satin dressing gown with hair rollers!! She looks like she was so excited and happy to be part of a special day.
Oct 18, 2017 11:46:32 AM
Lisa Smith - I could be completely biased but I couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. They truly are the best and completely exceeded our expectations. Diane was amazing, talented, professional and an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding. Every moment of our special day was captured perfectly and looking back though them all it’s like I’m reliving it all over again!
