Christian had been the photographer at my brother’s wedding & where I had been a bridesmaid, so I had the opportunity to see him in action, so to speak – he was so relaxed, yet professional and the final photos of my brother’s had been so beautiful …
When it came to my own wedding, we had instantly contacted Christian to arrange the details, we didn’t need to shop around as we knew that the quality was guaranteed. We met up at the wedding location for our pre-wedding meeting & at times, Christian appeared more excited than we were – which was nice to see such enthusiasm for his work!
On the day, Christian & his wife, Rhona were with us every step of the way, even helping me get dressed at one point which was way out of their job description! However, this was our experience, very personal & involved in the day itself. It didn’t feel like having a photographer in the room taking photos, they both blended in with our family & friends, making us feel comfortable & at ease. I’ve heard people describe the process of having their wedding photographs being taken as the hardest part of the day, however for ourselves personally it was just as enjoyable as the rest of the big day!
After our wedding day, Christian was always intouch with every part of the next stage so we didn’t feel as if we were waiting or left in the dark. And, the final result was more than what we could of imagined; capturing every laugh & special moment, but also the smaller details that we had missed during the excitement of it all.
We could not be more happy with our decision to choose Christian as our photographer for the most special day of our lives! Everyone we’ve shown our finished album too have been blown away by the quality & professionalism of the finished photos! Thanks for all your hard work Christian.

We spent a long time working on the guest list for our ‘big day’, thinking about who we wanted to be there to share every moment with us. What people don’t always think about is the fact that this guest list extends to the people who provide a service for you – including the people who record the day: the photographers.
From our very first meeting with both Christian and his wife, Rhona (which took place at least two and a half years before the wedding day!), both John and I were absolutely convinced that Christian was the perfect photographer to capture the significant moments of our special day. And, we didn’t regret that decision for one second …
The images perfectly captured the feel of the day and our personality. The hardest bit was having to narrow our choice for our beautiful album photographs down! Christian’s photographs perfectly detailed all the most significant moments of the wedding. We loved every second of our wedding, and if we had it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing – that includes Christian and Rhona!

From the outset, Christian’s support and attention to detail was superb. He carefully took us through the options, and reassured us that his approach to his photography was to capture the “big day” in a natural way. Our wedding was a fantastic day and the key moments were captured for posterity without him being intrusive & that said, his eye for the right shots ensured that we have some stunning pictures. We opted for an album (plus 2 smaller ones for our parents) and the quality of the finish was well worth the wait. Wedding photography is never cheap, but the quality of Christian’s work was worth every penny!

From first meeting Christian we knew he would be the perfect photographer for us. His photographs and his intentions for the day were exactly what we wanted. We had the opportunity to meet Christian at the venue before our wedding, to discuss locations and possible photo opportunities throughout our day, he was enthusiastic and put us at ease.
The photographs he took are stunning and the biggest compliment we can give is that he was thoughtful, uninstrusive and relaxing on the day. We could not rate Christian any more highly and the way he looked after us both on the day and afterwards in preparing the album is a testimony to him as a photographer and a person. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

From the evening we first met Christian, we knew you were who we wanted to take our photographs; our minds were made up and we didn’t need to see anyone else. Every last detail was thought of and we didn’t need to worry about anything photography wise. Even the morning of our wedding, when you came to take the bridal preparation shots, you really made myself and bridesmaids feel at ease and relaxed!
You simply knew which shots would work best and you managed to capture the day perfectly – the sunset shots were just amazing and it was lovely to get that time together away from all our friends and family too!
Our wedding album is just beautiful and has been shown to everyone. Thank you so much for everything.

From the first meeting with Christian, we knew that he was the photographer that we wanted, we liked his laid back style and the fact that he was interested in the type of photos we wanted rather than trying to dictate the photos that he wanted to take. At the meetings before our wedding day and on the day itself, nothing was too much trouble for either Christian or Rhona. They were happy for us to have photos taken at multiple locations and fitted around our day so that we had a chance to speak to our guests rather than rushing around.
We were very keen to have a lot of un-staged photos, which from the results are Christian’s speciality the photos of the ceremony and the reception are absolutely fantastic and completely unique.
The album that Christian put together for us was unbelievable and the only change that we made was to add an additional page at Christian’s recommendation. We could not be more pleased with the final album and the parent albums.
Overall, we could not have asked for a better service or experience from Christian and Rhona and we are over the moon with the results. We would (and already have) highly recommend Christian Allen Photography.

We’d spent some time looking for a photographer. It was important to us that we found someone who we felt a connection with, and whose style we felt could match our own aspirations for our wedding day. Our aim was a relaxed day which was neither fussy nor stuffy, and where both we and our guests just enjoyed the day and the celebration of our marriage.
As soon as we met Christian, we knew we’d found the right photographer to capture the day. From the outset his friendly and relaxed approach, coupled with a passion and enthusiasm for his profession left us feeling very confident about our choice.
We met again before the wedding to talk through our requirements for the day in more detail, some of which were a bit out of the ordinary, and we really appreciated Christian’s flexible and accommodating approach, which wasn’t pushy or formulaic in any sense.
On the day Christian’s style, assisted through his wife Rho, was to professionally organise our guests, capturing both the formal and informal shots. All this was achieved in a very non-imposing way.
The result is that we have a beautiful, high quality album that reflects the spirit of our day beautifully and is exactly what we wanted. It wonderfully captures our memories and consequently will be cherished.
We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Christian. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. It is a day we will remember forever. The day ran so smoothly, all thanks to yourself & Rho for being so talented and organised. Everyone commented on how amazing you both were and we really appreciate everything you have done for us. The photographs are simply wonderful! Thank you!

Christian and Rhona were both very professional and friendly when we met for our engagement shoot. They made us feel at ease and took some fantastic photographs. Their professional manner continued on our wedding day and after too. They took fabulous photographs and captured our day perfectly. They listened to what we wanted and we are both very pleased with the finished results. The Italian, leather wedding album is beautiful and each page has been carefully designed. Our album has exceeded our expectations and we have had lots of comments on how lovely it looks and how good the photographs are.
David & KatieThursday, 18th May 2017
A huge thank you to Christian, for capturing our day and Rhona for ensuring the seamless co-ordination of the photography on our amazing wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. They both listened to what we had wanted from our wedding pictures and fulfilled our request far more than we had ever expected. They were extremely organised and stress free, so myself and Dave were able to enjoy our day without worrying about having photos taken. We asked for a lot of natural photos and they are absolutely stunning. Thank you to the both of you.
