Walworth Castle Wedding

The Couple

Jordan & Sarah met through mutual friends at a house party back in 2013 where they swapped numbers and after time getting to know each other, began to meet up and got together in May 2014. 

Sarah is from Stockton and is a Nursery Assistant and Jordan is from Middlesbrough and is a teaching assistant 

They don't have any pets but they would both love a dog to take out on weekend walks and to the beach.

They were away on a Centerparcs break on New Year’s Day 2019 when Jordan popped the question just outside our lodge has just been for an evening walk. 

I am always interested in why couples choose me and when I asked them both this they said...

"Having spoken to a friend and colleague from work Nick had been highly recommended for his friendly nature and professionalism. Both I and Jordan then looked over Nick’s website and loved the natural way he caught moments across his photos, and so got in touch and really appreciated how at ease we felt in starting off and continuing along the process have been unsure as to which direction to originally go when first looking for a photographer."

Engagement Shoot

During the process of planning, Sarah and Jordan also had the opportunity to book and attend an engagement shoot. I like to be accommodating whenever I can. On the shoot, Sarah and Jordan were initially a little anxious about how to pose for the photos ahead, as they had not been for a photoshoot together up until this point. However, these feelings soon disappeared as straight away began to create a conversation that helped to get to know each other and naturally just dropped back to take shots. Over the session, they both soon forgot the camera was there and went on as we would on a usual evening walk which worked out for some lovely shots that were really natural and turned out beautifully. I was also really informative in ways to stand and place our hands/ arms etc but this is only if needed ( more I would guide not pose) to get the best shots whilst also being happy with us playing around with different ideas and having some fun at the same time. Overall they told me "really enjoyed the whole experience from organising to attending and then receiving our photos back within the next few days. The shoot has also helped us feel more confident for the wedding day ahead in terms of our photos, as we have had the chance to get to know Nick and his photography style, which we are more than happy with and really looking forward to seeing our day captured through."

Another question I like to ask is, any tips for other couples planning their wedding?

"Try and avoid planning a wedding during a pandemic - in all seriousness, where possible enjoy the parts of planning that you can, the day can come and go so quick it will be lovely to look back on the memories that we both got to share with family/friends and each other (I.e dress shopping/ choosing rings together)."

5 STARS *****

NG Photography carried out our wedding photography. Nick was amazing he listed to what style we wanted and delivered the results we wanted but also wasn't afraid to ask to try different type of shots. From the initial meeting, engagement shoot, wedding shoot and then the handover nick was always a pleasure to work with. To the point for the past two years, he now shoots a family photoshoot capturing us having fun with an autumn setting. With having his own family he made the kids feel at ease and just focus on having fun rather than being shy around a stranger. If you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, family, engagement or whatever your occasion you're in safe hands.

We were recommended Nick for our newborn shoot. Nick came to our house and was so relaxed, which helped keep Dexter our son calm, so we had one happy baby! Perfect! Dexter loved him, smiling at him every chance he got! The pictures we received are absolutely stunning, so natural and just what we wanted. Now we just have the problem of choosing some to frame! Thank you. 
Definitely 5*, highly recommend.

Me and my Husband used Nick for our wedding back in October, he was not our original photographer but due to unforeseen circumstance, I was let down with 1 week to go to the big day. A family member recommended NG Photography to me and I will be forever thankful. As soon as I contacted Nick he was extremely understanding and considerate and went to every length to put me and my Husband at ease! Not only is he extremely talented but very supportive and helpful, he took our ideas on board and made our day extra magical, he was fantastic and such a good laugh from start to finish which shows in our photographs! All our guests were over the moon with him too, especially for stepping up and helping us out last minute! I have no doubts if you use him as your photograph, you will not be disappointed.

We were given a voucher for a photoshoot for our daughter who unfortunately spent most of her time in hospital, but Nick was so accommodating and was so understanding in rearranging our photoshoot, in the end, we arranged for nick to photograph at our daughters first birthday, this turned into a whole family and friends photoshoot. I couldn't ask for anything better! So natural and nothing felt staged and nick was happy to just go with the flow, he even had time to play with the children whilst taking the photos to try and get the best shots of them smiling and having a good time! He honestly surpassed all expectations! I couldn't have been happier and I can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

We were so grateful to friends who bought a photo package as a present for our twin boys first birthday. Nick arrived punctually and enthusiastically joined in with the excitement of the party. He was at no point ‘in the way’ yet has managed to catch every guest and every moment of the party. Nick was an absolute natural with children and managed to get smiles from all.
The photos were on the website within a week and hand-delivered to our door within a fortnight.
I can’t recommend Nick highly enough. He was a delight to have with us at the party and the results are fabulous. We are delighted with our photos of a very special day.

Nick has done both a promotional shoot for my business & a shoot for my newborn son. Although I’ve not seen the pictures of my son yet (as the shoot was only done this morning), I’m absolutely over the moon with the business pictures & videos he did. Great guy, really friendly & professional. Highly recommend!

Nick carried out our wedding photos in October. From the first point of contact with discussions about how we wanted the photos to look to the engagement shoot and then the big day Nick and his skills were amazing his ideas and creativity and customer service what's second to none. All our guests found Nick very approachable and friendly. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone.

What a fantastic job Nick has done saving the day for us when our photographer cancelled our wedding at the last moment. We can’t thank him enough. The photos are amazing and have captured our memories of our special day perfectly.

Nick recently photographed our son's christening. From getting in touch with Nick, it was an easy, straightforward and professional experience. Nick was wonderful on the day - completely in the background capturing shots, allowing us to enjoy the day but also regularly checking we were happy with everything. The end result is lots of fantastic shots which we will cherish for a lifetime! I would highly recommend Nick to anyone, will use his services again in the future and will recommend to all friends and family. Thanks, Nick!

A fantastic photographer would highly recommend! Nick took photos for both our engagement and when our little one was a newborn. The pictures were stunning, he made us feel at ease especially as I’m not keen on having my photo taken but he made it a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Nick was very patient when we had our newborn shoot and the pictures were incredible we really will treasure them forever.
