"Carl photographed our wedding in August and did the most amazing job. We would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. Our photos are so much better than we could ever have imagined and want to thank Carl for creating the beautiful photos to help us treasure our day forever. He is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble, from our first meeting to our engagement shoot and wedding, he instantly made us feel at ease. On our wedding day we had the worst weather imaginable, but it really did not matter because Carl was amazing throughout. He coordinated outdoor shots when the weather permitted and made sure everything went smoothly. So many of our friends and family complimented Carl on the day, not noticing he was around capturing our beautiful, natural photos. Carl thank you so so much, you were amazing! We will definitely be asking you to photograph any of our future events!!"

Highly recommend! Carl was our photographer for our wedding at Bolton School in August 2019. In the run up to the wedding, Carl provided fantastic communication and met up with us to discuss how he would be working on the day and kinds of shots we wanted.On the day he was professional, very accommodating and most of the time he just blended in with the guests taking what we would later see were the most amazing natural pictures of people enjoying the day.Once we got the pictures we were totally blown away with how amazing they were! He captured every moment of the day beautifully and on viewing the pics we relived the whole day all over again. Everyone has commented how amazing the pictures are. Thank you so much for capturing our perfect day!

Amazingly professional and effortlessSimply put: Carl was amazing!From the first enquiry he was incredibly responsive, friendly and professional. We all know planning a wedding is stressful and choosing a wedding photographer is a significant decision, but Carl took the time to understand who we were as a couple, and what we wanted from our big day, and took the stress out of it. He then met with us both in advance at the venue so that we were able to discuss the types of images we wanted, helping us navigate through balancing family photos with a more relaxed feel which was important for us. Using his experience and expertise he recommended other shots which are now some of our favourite images from the day.Both Steven and I are a little nervous when having our photograph taken and on the day Carl really helped us to relax and enjoy the experience, and knowing that we had such a professional taking care us made all the difference. He interacted and managed our guests really effectively to make sure everything went without a hitch but we all had fun along the way.And the results.....well they are just beautiful! He has captured our special day perfectly and given us amazing photos we will treasure. Thank you so much Carl, you really made the difference.

By Tom & Kate

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Carl photographed our wedding on 22nd March 19! From start to finish he was absolutely fantastic. Such a talented man who managed to beautifully capture every little detail of our day along with the tears, laughter and happiness. My husband and I really enjoyed going through the gorgeous pictures and experiencing all the emotions of the day again. Wonderful photographs we can treasure for the rest of our lives and Carl did that for us so we truly can’t thank him enough. We highly recommend and if your looking for a photographer look no further.😁

By Dave & Charlotte

We chose Carl to photograph our wedding day on 6th April and the results are breathtaking. We don’t tire of looking through all 1500 of our photo’s with different family members and friends. The compliments from guest about the images and Carl’s professionalism on the day are endless. His passion for photography was evident from the first time we met with him. Nothing was too much trouble on the lead up and on the day, yet he made everything seem effortless (when clearly it must have been anything but). Both Dave and I felt completely at ease with Carl around and our personalised wooden USB stick and presentation box are lovely keepsakes. Thank you so much! Xx

By Becky & Peter

So glad we chose Carl to photograph our wedding. We never got chance to meet Carl before the wedding but from the limited details we gave him he has captured exactly what we wanted and has managed to get so many amazing pictures. He put everybody at ease and even managed to get my very uncooperative, incredibly shy 4 year old to smile after letting him take some pictures. Would definitely recommend Carl to anyone looking for a photographer. His natural shots in particular are brilliant.Thank you again Carl x

By Steven & Natalie

Amazing!! Carl has provided us with photos which made our day so memorable and special to look back on. He captured things in the background which would have passed us by. Cannot thank him enough for everything he did for us on the day and after. Such fabulous memories which we will treasure forever.Thank you so much. Natalie & Steven

By Rachel & Will

Carl has to be one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. He's so organised (far more the rest of us!) and has a brilliant eye of shots, from the full family wide shots to the little detailed shots of shoes, rings and the bee that decided he'd like to pollinate my boquet! He definitely helped to add to humor on the day, with a lot of shots and family to work through but he kept everyone smiling. Not mention putting one hell of shift in, from 8am in the hairdressers til 8pm after our first dance! I'd definitely recommend him anyone else looking for a wedding photographer, he was absolutely excellent from start to finish. Many thanks once again! :)

By Jonathan & Kirsty

Our wedding day was one of the best days of our lives and Carl captured all the moments we saw on the day and those that we didn't. He was so patient throughout and nothing was a problem for him at all. The final images are stunning and we are overwhelmed at how many photos we have, there are so many to choose from! We cannot recommend him enough to any bride and grooms to be and from the bottom of our hearts want to thank him for blowing us away with his work.Thank you so much Carl, love Kirsty and Jonathan xx

By Sue Baker

"Thanks Carl, you've really captured the best of my medieval banquet birthday bash. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through the photographs (I even like the ones of the pig! and being a vegetarian that feels so wrong!) and I truly felt I was back in the hall re-living the night again – what more could I have asked for. You managed to blend in to the background and get excellent results without anyone feeling they were 'in front of the lens' - as a photographer I know how difficult this is to achieve and the difference it can make in catching the atmosphere of any event. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an event photographer and your photos are evidence enough that you have a great eye and a real skill with people. Sue"

By Chris and Gill

Carl was exemplary from the first meeting until the time he departed on our big day. His knowledge and expertise meant that he was able to capture the best pictures and memories from the day without ever feeling intrusive or staged, every single picture taken was natural while retaining the spirit of joy that was present throughout the day. He was more than happy to accommodate all our wishes and knew all the best spots for capturing the beauty of our venue. His direction of all our guests (even the grumpy ones, and three young boys who loved the camera) was simply excellent as he was able to wrangle the masses into a coherent group, all with a cheeky smile. Every single person who has seen our photo's has commented on the professional and beautiful way in which he managed to capture the smallest an biggest moments with ease. For anyone who is getting married Carl is the obvious choice and we will of course be recommending him to anyone who asks. Carl, Thank you so much for being there with us to capture our day the images you have supplied us with are quite simply stunning (except from the groom)

By Barry & Leanne

We could not have asked for anyone better than Carl to photograph our wedding, we knew from out first meeting with him that we had made the right choice. He captured so many special moments without being intrusive especially when myself and the bridesmaids were getting ready. The quality of our photographs are outstanding we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Carl is so professional and made us feel at ease, he really captured every single special moment during the whole day. He made our day very special and we would definitely recommend Carl to anyone who wants their special day to be captured in the most amazing way possible. Thank you so much Carl we love our pictures. Leanne and Barry xx

By Neil and Natasha Clarke

"We can't thank Carl enough for our amazing wedding pictures! Carl didn't stop taking pictures all day (from around 9am until gone 9pm!) and it paid off. We now have over 2500 pictures of our perfect day. All our guests commented on how lovely Carl was and how half of the time, they didn't notice he was there, which was ideal as we wanted plenty of natural shots. The photos are absolutely perfect and I would recommend Carl to anyone who is looking for a fantastic photographer! Thanks again Carl, Mr and Mrs Clarke"

By Steph & Chris

"Carl has captured the most perfect moments on our special day in May 2015 that we will cherish forever. We felt so comfortable in front of the camera with You there was no awkward posing behind a tree or sat on the floor, just natural images which is what we wanted, every request you covered. All our guests commented on how friendly you were & some asked if you were a friend of the family you fit in that well. Your attention to detail is spot on you didn't miss a thing. Especially the girls fighting over my bouquet, hilarious photos & my favourite which is chris's dance moves during our first dance, captured perfectly. We cant thank you enough. Its so hard to choose a favourite to have up in our home, so might do a whole wall with all the photos you took! Hehe! We would recommend you 100%. Thank you so much. All our love Mr & Mrs Hodgkinson."

By Nick and Leanne x (Mr and Mrs Shackleton)

Carl was by far the best & easiest decision we made for our wedding.  I found him online and after looking through his work on his website we quickly booked to meet him and he came to meet us at our home. We knew right away we were in safe hands! He made sure he knew exactly what it was that we wanted from him and he was an absolute joy to have on the day.In the morning, whilst I was getting ready, he captured all the excitement whilst somehow keeping my niece entertained as she had decided "Mr camera" was her new best friend ! Then he kindly pointed out a bridesmaids shrug that still had the tags on we wouldn't have noticed. He was there... But not there in the most perfect balance. I felt completely at ease with him all day.Then later on he captured all the emotional moments in the ceremony that you wouldn't believe someone could with photos. Afterwards, not only did he know how to direct the masses into the right group shots but he also knows how to capture all the unspoken natural moments too (which make for great photos!) My husband and I were worried initially about our photos.... but we needn’t have been. Carl knows exactly what he's doing ! and so even in those moments where he was taking the time to direct us into for photos, we almost forgot he was there.The guests all thought he was great and have all since commented on how brilliant he/his work is & how his amazing photos captured the story of our day perfectly. I can't stop looking through them ...it allows me to relive the day!He even managed to capture everything about the speeches that made all the memories come flooding back in photographs. I mean, to capture speeches... Without words? - That's pretty amazing!We have so many wonderful photos to choose from & We definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carl for anyone's wedding photography (and already have to our close friends who are getting married.) I can honestly say - go ahead and book Carl with confidence. Take it from us, You definitely won't be disappointed and you are in safe hands.Thank you so much Carl from the bottom of our hearts for our beautiful wedding photos which we will treasure forever ! 

By Sophie and Marc

"Thank you so much Carl! You captured every single special moment from our day and it really meant the world to us to have such an amazing photographer but also our friend by our side, you never sat still constantly snapping away which is what makes us so excited to see our final pictures, we plan on renewing our vows after 10 years and would love to have you there and will most definitely be recommending you to everyone, all of our guests from the day also made comments about how our photographer was so polite, professional, friendly and nothing was too much every picture that got asked for was taken so thank you so much once again for sharing our day and capturing all the memories xx"

By Kara Scott

A huge thank you to Carl. We were lucky enough to find carl through a friend. Couldn't have asked for anything better. When I viewed our pictures they brought a tear to my eye, how he captured our happiness and every aspect of the day was amazing. Truly fantastic. Would recommend carl to anyone. xx Thank you."

By Sarah & Jimmy 

"We where apprehensive about the photography part of our big day, but after discovering Carl, all our worries where for nothing. He made us feel so at ease, and nothing was a problem. All our photos that we really wanted where captured and more besides. I really am spoilt for choice over which pictures to print. Thanks for everything Carl, you have been fantastic. Sarah and Jimmy."

By Emma & Aidan

"In addition to his eye catching photography, Carl stood out from so many other photographers for his reliability and personality. He ensured that he knew exactly what we wanted on our wedding day and blended in catching all the best moments, whilst managing and suggesting a variety of shots at the right times. We most definitely recommend Carl and the high quality service he offers! Many thanks!"

By Hayley & Barry:

"Carl captured our day from start to finish and was truly amazing throughout, carl was professional and his work is stunning as you can all see.

I know who we'll be booking for our 10 year wedding renewal xxx Thanks Carl you are a very talented man with a good eye for detail xx"

By Kate Aspen

"Carl photographed our wedding in January 2015. He came to our home to discuss how we wanted the photos to be taken and made us feel very relaxed. Everybody commented how friendly, easy going and professional he was. We did have a bit of rain towards the end of the day but Carl made the most of it and took some fantastic shots outside in the rain with an umbrella and some cleverly placed lighting! We would highly recommend Carl to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Absolutely fantastic and couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much Carl. Kate & Dan."

By Gary Thomas

"Thanks to Carl he made our wedding day so special. He come to our home and shown us exactly what we wanted and he delivered this on the day. He was very professional throughout the day and fitted in perfectly with everyone. The photos you taken were outstanding, I couldn't of asked for more.. Yu were excellent and you made our day brilliant. I would highly recommend you !! Thank you so much. Gary And Louise."

By Fiona & Adrian

"Carl was on hand to make Friday 13th June 2014 our luckiest day ever, when he photographed our wedding. We are both a little camera shy, but Carl managed to get some amazing shots, and got the very best out of our guests too. We have had many comments from friends & family that Carl was very professional & unobtrusive, and on the day he captured some proper little gems of forgotten moments. Do not let this man pass you by – he is an amazing photographer of both the grand gesture and the tiniest detail. Thank you Carl."

By Jess and Nathan

"Carl photographed my wedding in May. What can I say?! Carl was absolutely amazing at making us both (very camera shy) feel at ease. In the morning Carl came to take photos of myself and my bridesmaids whilst getting ready and actually managed to make us feel like we weren't being photographed- although there are hundreds of lovely photos of us on the morning of the wedding! Such precious times! Carl actually did a fantastic job of keeping us all calm whilst getting ready. He literally thought of everything and pays a lot of attention to small details that you hadn't realised were important until later. All of those split second moments that you don't really take in on the day- Carl managed to photograph so I can treasure them forever. The end results are truly breathtaking! I absolutely adore the photos and am looking at them several times of day each time noticing something new and having a good cry. Thank you for everything Carl, you are amazing at what you do!"

By Nicola & Matthew Milne

"Carl was recommended to us by a mutual friend and we are so glad that we decided to have him as our photographer. The photos are beautiful and there are plenty of natural shots that we were not even aware had been taken, which was exactly what we wanted. We chose the Gold package but did not want the preparation shots. Instead, Carl stayed until the end of the first dance which was fantastic and his flexibility meant that he captured all of the moments that were important to us. Thank-you for giving us the visual memories of our special day. An amazing photographer and highly recommended!"

By Ian & Helen Coates

"The photographs Carl took of our wedding in the Lake District are breathtaking. It was such a perfect day and seeing the photographs just brought all the fantastic memories of the day flooding back. Carl was fantastic at putting our two young children and guest at ease. The photographs he took are amazing and include lots of natural photographs of our guests enjoying the day. They capture perfectly the magical day we had and the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District. Thank you so much Carl. We would definitely recommend Carl. His eye for detail and ability to find the perfect backdrops was second to none."

By Gillian & Paul

We have recently just got married and Carl Duffy was the photographer we used. He had previously taken pictures of my sisters wedding and had done a fantastic job, the pictures were exceptional. He took pictures from the start of the day whilst we were getting ready right thorough to the end of the night. He managed to capture the day perfectly and the slide show of the wedding day accompanied by our first dance music and a piece of music that means a lot to us was the icing of the cake. I would recommenced Carl Duffy to anybody and if you can't take my word for it then please look at his gallery where the pictures are, I'm sure you will all agree they speak for themselves."

By Lesley Tetlow

"Brilliant coverage of my daughter's wedding. The photographs are superb. Carl really captured the moment. Out of the hundreds of photographs taken there wasn't one that wasn't good!!! Highly recommend Carl. Great guy!!!"

By Hannah & Paul

"We are so happy that we chose Carl as our wedding photographer. I (Hannah) actually found him a very calming influence and my bridesmaids and I enjoyed having him around whilst we were getting ready. His knowledge of weddings was useful too because I didn't know what to do with my engagement ring! He was excellent with the children that were at our wedding and we have got some stunning photographs for our home. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend Carl. We can definitely see ourselves having more pictures taken by Carl in the future."

By Louise and Paul

"Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish and Carl's photographs captured the essence of the day completely. Stunning photos have allowed us to look back on our day with more than just fond memories. Carl was able to capture intimate parts of the day and ceremony without any feeling of intrusion. He followed our brief to the letter and gave us a great mixture of posed and candid shots, as well as artistic pictures of the venue. Fun, professional and talented. We would definitely recommend Carl."

By Kathy Dowds

"Carl came to our home. I was a little nervous as our son had some pictures done at nursery only a few weeks before without much success. Carl was brilliant he engaged with Thomas as soon as he arrived letting him help set everything up. We have got some lovely photos of our son and also of the 3 of us as a family. Carl thank you so much for making what could have been a disaster into a fantastic experience with wonderful images captured for ever. I can't recomend Carl enough to capture those special moments. Thanks again."

By Sarah

"Carl was our Wedding photographer last month (April 2012) and it was the best days of our lives. Carl captured the day perfectly. During the day he and his wife were extremely professional, had a fantastic eye for detail, were brilliant with the children and made us feel at ease and extremely special on the day. With the challenge of a mixed day weather-wise and a list as long as your arm of photographs that we wanted, they were a fantastic part of our day who had smiles on their faces throughout. We are so pleased with the photographs and the slideshow produced and would definitely highly recommend Carl as we already have done to our friends and family."

By Beth & Steven

"Carl was our Photographer at our Wedding, the best day of our lives...the pictures capture the day perfectly. We really can't recommend Carl enough, he made the day stress free and fun whilst capturing some amazing pictures. Thank you so much we got all the family and friend group shots we wanted along with some really lovely natural shots...couldn't be happier."
