Our photos are stunning, a mix of formal and informal shots completely capturing the vibe of the day, exactly what we wanted. Our pictures were ready for us on our return from Honeymoon, so 2 and half weeks after the wedding and Ben invited us to his studio to have a viewing with him which was wonderful; it made it a lot more special than just receiving them in the post. We will definitely (and have) recommended Ben to any of our friends and family for all their photography needs.
Ben had a range of packages (with differing prices) for us to choose from and he catered for what we wanted. He also offers a variety of different photo products, such as portrait books, canvases, acrylic block frames, funky frames and Celebration Blocs some very unique and different, which are fabulous! It was wonderful to have a choice of what to do with our pictures!!"

Blooming Photography are professional from start to finish. Ben was a real pleasure to have at our wedding as he made everyone feel at ease and almost all of our wedding guests commented on what a nice bloke he was! His non-intrusive style worked well as we were able to relax and enjoy our day with the added bonus of having fantastic photos to show at the end of it. Both the natural and ‘staged’ shots really were fantastic as he worked with us to ensure we got what we wanted from him as well as guiding us with regards to what works well. We highly recommend Ben to anyone, do not hesitate you will not be disappointed in the results."

"Just a little note to say a big thank you- we couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day! We were so impressed with the mix of photos that you took and we now have the difficult job of deciding which ones to put up on the wall! You were friendly and made our guests feel at ease by learning their names and giving them a smile. People have since told us they thought you were the right balance of being assertive but not intrusive- a hard job with over 100 guests and lots of family!! We are so happy that we chose you to be our photographer!"
Sarah and Jack
"I have to say I was very nervous about having my photo taken all day long but Ben could not have made us feel more at ease, he really did make our day even better and the memories are all there in black, white, colour and vintage! Ben you worked so hard surrounded by my huge family to capture really lovely, natural moments. We can't get over how good the shots of us together are and they will be part of our home forever. Thank you for making such an effort to get it all so right."
Becky and Simon
"I couldn't rate Ben highly enough. We married in August and asked Ben for documentary style of photos - not so many posed ones but capturing moments that we were too busy to see and that is exactly what we got. Ben was unobtrusive and yet somehow always there. I didn't feel like I was being followed round by the paparazzi but there's enough photos it seems I was. Most of all it was a pleasure to have him there. He chatted to friends and family made them all feel comfortable with him and got some absolutely stunning shots. I cried when i saw the photos they are the best keepsake I could possibly ask for from what was such an amazing day. Thanks again Ben.. As soon as we have tiny feet pattering we'll be back to see you."

"Our photographer was one of the highlights of our wedding day! The photos Ben produced were of such an honest and beautiful quality, which could only have been achieved by his being so easy going and making ourselves and guests (especially the children) feel comfortable and relaxed. He was everywhere at once and managed to capture both the essential moments and some more creative and informal compositions. Many of our guests commented on his unintrusive professionalism but more so his people skills and enthusiasm. This made for a fun environment which eradicated every brides's dread of awkward family must have shots and those shy guests!
Ben was careful to consider our individual needs (he learned our family's names) and was keen to discover our tastes by meeting with us both at his studio and also at the venue. Our photos were ready to collect before we were home from our honeymoon and are a much loved reminder of our wedding day. We would readily recommend Blooming Photography as a trusted, professional and personal service."

"We just wanted to say “Thank You” for capturing our very special day so perfectly - They are beautiful photos and ones which we will treasure forever. Your ability to put everyone at ease on the day, your relaxed personality and style, and your creative vision is an absolute credit to you and was commented on by all of our guests. The pictures have truly captured the happiness and emotions of the day as well as our personalities and characters! Thank you again."
Naomi & Kevan - The Greenway Hotel, Shurdington
“Ben was the model professional; effortlessly capturing the mood of the occasion and all the moments and characters that make a wedding so special. His relaxed and engaging style meant that everyone he met – from Godmothers to grannies – was put at ease, which in turn made it easier for him to take some excellent pictures. We think that Ben’s innate ability to get on so well with people, combined with his proactive approach and keen eye for a great picture, is one of the main reasons why he came away from our wedding with hundreds of beautiful and memorable photos.
“When we returned from our honeymoon, Ben was extremely organised and he helped us immensely when it came to choosing images for the various photo albums we had ordered. His patience and creativity throughout this process, and his desire to work with us to achieve the best results, meant that what could have been a chore turned out to be a real pleasure. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results of all his hard work, and we know that our photos are a treasure we will return to again and again in the years to come.
“Overall, Ben is an extremely talented and professional photographer with a gift for gauging the mood of an occasion. I would have no hesitation in hiring Ben again, and would heartily recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day.”
Matt & Wendy - Cripps Barn, Bibury, Cirencester
“Thank you, Ben for producing such wonderful photographs of our wedding day. You managed to capture the personality of Mat and I completely as well as all our guests. Not only did you capture the classic shots that all family members want but you went out of your way to capture some more contemporary artistic photographs that Mat and I wanted which really was a once in a lifetime opportunity. You had a wonderful manner on the day that many of our guests commented on, where you were having fun doing your job and making people relax and not bossing them around when they wanted to have a chat and a drink with someone, yet getting all those crucial group shots as well as many un-staged shots which allowed peoples personalities to shine through. In fact the artistic shots are so good we now want to get a couple put on canvas and acrylic as they are too good to just sit in an album. Thanks again.”
Claire and Mat - Langtry Manor, Bournemouth.
"It was an easy choice to use Ben to photograph our wedding. His relaxed & enthusiastic approach made us feel instantly at ease and his stlye and quality of photography stood out miles above the rest. He was a joy to have around on the day and we now have some fabulous photos as a reminder of one of the most important days of our lives, in particular the best confetti shot i've ever seen!"

Matthew & Vanessa Hill
"Thank you for being there to celebrate our big day. Our pictures are wonderful & will remind us everyday of how beautiful the day was. Thanks to your hard work & vision we have got memories we will treasure forever."
Mr & Mrs Hearn - Cotswold House Hotel, Chipping Campden
"Many thanks for the wonderful photographs and for the care and attention you gave to recording our very special day. Peter and I felt that your presence at our wedding was a positive asset rather than the xchore we have experienced at other weddings . Your charming personality, obvious artistic talent and great warmth made us all feel very relaxed and happy - something which is evident in the wonderful range of photographs your captured of us, our friends and family."
Ruth & Peter Lewis - The Greenway Hotel, Shurdington
"Jay & I cannot thank you enough for all of your help, time and advice with our wedding photos. We are so pleased with the outcome of the photos, you really captured the best day of our lives. Thank you again."
Lucy & Jay Cullinson
“We are extremely grateful to Ben for his help and support as well as his photography, not only on the day but in the buildup also. His ability to capture the moments with style and with a relaxed feel made our special day perfect. Anyone has married will know that as bride and groom you don’t get to see much of your day so it was wonderful to visit Ben on our return from holiday to go through the photos. The way it was presented to us was great as we were able to see the whole day unfold in chronological order, which helped us to relive the day. We cannot thank you enough and we look forward to seeing the album!”
