Tony Hart has been working as a full-time wedding photographer for nigh on a decade, and since his first wedding at Keble College, Oxford he has covered all sorts of weddings up and down the country, both large and small. Each is unique, each its own charm.
"Narrative. That's the word I'd use to describe my approach to the wedding day. A story through pictures. Wherever possible I think it's important to let a wedding be itself, with minimal direction on the part of the photographer. There's beauty, honesty, truth and emotion inherent in the day and it's my job to photograph it."

Just wanted to write quickly to say thank you so much firstly for everything you did on the wedding day itself. As you now well know, Chris and I are not photogenic people and not particularly relaxed in front of the camera, but you have definitely managed to get around all of that somehow! And secondly, we wanted to thank you for the brilliant photos themselves. Everyone is delighted with them and the mums haven't stopped crying yet i don't think (in a good way obviously). I hear you've already had a gushing thank you phonecall from my mum as well, sorry about that (I think she needs at least two years to achieve the equivalent of most people's two weeks distance from the wedding!) She was thrilled with the photos and has told me so in several emails in capitals with more exclamation marks than I have ever seen her use. Chris and I both feel that they are brilliant photos that sum up the day perfectly and capture every detail, so thank you very much. My favourite picture of all I think is my dad being busted watching cricket while his daughter is busy getting married. Hilarious!

When I first met you back at Hedsor, what is only just over six months ago but feels a lot longer (!), the thing that drew me to your photos was that I felt like I knew the personalities in the photos and the stories and the emotions of the moment. And this is what I love most about our photos - you have captured who people are so well through the photos and given us a perfect story of our emotional and fun-filled day. I think this particularly in relation to my Dad, Kal's Dad and Mum, Binta, Steve, Jig, and obviously me and Kal. My Mum has not been the same powerful driving force for the last two years as she has been for most of my life, and as you will know these are very likely to be the last photos that will ever be taken of my Mum. Thank you so much for making them so special and managing to capture glimpses of the Mum we all know and love so dearly, really enjoying herself. You may never be able to comprehend how much these photos will mean to my family over the next few weeks, months, and years to come. Thank you.

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the amazing photographs.... We’ve been looking at them all weekend and absolutely love them. You’ve done an amazing job and everyone we’ve spoken to has commented on not only what a massively talented photographer you are but also what a lovely guy you were and how unobtrusive you were through the day! We didn’t even notice you most of the time (in the nicest possible way!) yet you have some incredible shots. The church photo’s are stunning, I cannot tell you how much we love them. It was also brilliant that you stayed right until the end of the night, some of the party photo’s bring back instant memories of the day so thank you for putting the hours in!

We just got back today - wonderful time, but completely exhausted - just had to look at the photos before we give in to the tiredness... and they are absolutely fantastic!! Thank you so much! You've captured so many of those tiny special moments which I had forgotten about, but which are just wonderful to see again! We love the ones of the little ones (Samuel and Mia), all the family shots of everyone enjoying themselves - and the photos of the church are amazing too - the sky looks amazing!!

I would recommend Tony in a heartbeat! He was one of the best, most informative providers to our wedding. We had a couple of meetings with Tony before the day where he listened carefully to the type of images/look we preferred giving us lots of examples of his work to see. He answered all our questions and really helped us relax about the whole day (he was so helpful with timings and even with planning our special day actually!)
This was even before seeing the beautiful images that Tony captured during the day. Really arty and memorable shots capturing moments with our loved ones throughout that we wouldn’t have otherwise seen (being so busy). He was great with the families, friends and other providers, very experienced.
The aftercare is also brilliant in terms of receiving the images and having options in terms of wedding albums (which we will get to ;)).
Wouldn’t recommend anyone else!

From just 5mins in to our initial meeting with Tony, we knew we’d picked the perfect chap to help capture the memories of our special wedding day...
His friendly, confident and likeable character reassured us from the start that ‘the boys gonna do good!’...
The images we received were just cracking and we regularly revisit them to remind us of our day.
We cannot recommend Tony enough. You will NOT be disappointed! If you don’t believe me, just check his smashing portfolio of images on his website...
Cheers Tony and hope to catch up over a few cold ones again soon.

We received excellent service from Tony throughout the process. He was able to guide us through all considerations for the day, including things we hadn't thought of. On the wedding day itself, Tony drew the perfect balance between blending in to the background and taking charge when needed. The quality of the final product was breath taking, we couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend Tony without hesitation.

Tony has given us the most incredible pictures to remember our Wedding Day!!
We never get bored of watching the slideshow he put together with all the music from the day playing with it.
He was lovely to be around on the day, and at the same barley noticeable so he wasn't a distraction. All our guests commented on how great he was and so nice to talk to.
If you're looking for pictures that tell the story of your day then he's perfect.

Tony is a fantastic photographer. He fits in so well with friends and family, and has a great memory for names. Staying to the end really does mean he captures the whole day. He goes above and beyond his duties to make the day special, we hardly noticed he was there. I would recommend him to anyone getting married.
