Testimonials

Booking Tony to capture our special day was by far one of the best decisions that we could have made!

From our initial enquiry, it was clear that Tony has a genuine passion for what he does as well as the people that he works with, and this is evident from his beautiful photography.

We were made to feel like individuals and not just “another client” as he really took the time to get to know myself and my now Husband, finding out what we both wanted and how best to bring that to life. On the day itself, Tony was fantastic, he really caught the raw emotion and the essence of the occasion but did it in such a way that was natural, nothing felt forced or staged.

We received our finished book today and We couldn’t be happier with it, it’s perfect! Looking back through the gorgeous images was like re-living the happiest day of our lives all over again.

Myself and my Husband can’t recommend Tony highly enough and we’ll certainly be singing his praises to anyone and everyone.
Stacey & Dan

We found Tony extremely professional and a great photographer. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he has a gift of making you feel relaxed. He captured every special moment from the day without being obtrusive. The photographs are wonderful and Tony produced a fantastic wedding album which tells a story of our amazing day. We are so pleased with it and everyone who has seen it is impressed.

Thank you Tony, for providing a first class service and building memories of a truly brilliant day. Marilyn & Jeff

From start to finish Tony was out of this world, he took the most creative and fantastic photos for our very special wedding day. He moved effortlessly around from group to group without making any fuss and captured all of are magical moments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him highly.

Yours gratefully Gina and Huw Watson

We found the service fitted perfectly with what we were looking for, for our wedding day. From the first meeting where we were shown the different options of packages we felt that we were in ‘safe hands’. The wedding day went beautifully and our guests commented on the ‘easy approach’ that our photographer took – there was no bossing around or instructing people where they must stand! That said, the pictures that we received are truly beautiful, capturing natural rather than ‘posed’ photographs and the presentation in the album second to none!

Emma and Liam

We are so pleased that we booked Tony as our wedding photographer, he made the whole process a lot easier for us! It was great to have the engagement shoot beforehand as we were able to get to know each other and we got some slightly different shots as well.

The wedding photos are amazing and it was great to have 2 people taking pictures for such a reasonable price. Tony turned the photos round really quickly and was very happy to do some minor editing as well. Our guests have also said to us that they found Tony to be friendly and laid back.

Caitlin & Scott

“Scott and I would love to thank Tony for being part of our special day. He took my brothers wedding photos and we were very impressed by his work. Tony was very happy to travel to our ceremony and reception in Leeds.

We felt at ease with Tony, he made us both feel very comfortable for our photos! We had great results from our wedding and we were very pleased with the photos. Tony gave us a good range for us to choose from and I personally loved how natural they were. I would definitely recommend Tony, he is a top guy and takes great photographs for a fair price.”

Revd Dr Martyn Atkins – Team Leader at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster London. 

Tony Hall is quite simply an exceptional wedding photographer. He is great with people and has that rare ability of listening to what you want, then delivering it even better than it was described. I’ve seen him working in a variety of contexts; large gatherings, formal settings, including churches, and smaller groupings in less formal settings – he is brilliant at every kind of celebration. He is friendly, reliable and expert, and his photos – and everything that goes into producing them – will delight you and be a wonderful account of your special day.

Eleanor and Mark

We were delighted to have Tony with us for our special day; he was personable, professional and a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He was especially great with the kids and really got the best out of the location, presenting us with wonderful shots of our happy day.

June and David

Neither of us are particularly comfortable with having our photo taken and even though we knew Tony beforehand, it did not make us feel any easier about the prospect of having to stand in front of a camera and look relaxed. Tony put us at ease, firstly, with a pre wedding shoot at home with our dogs. That helped us a lot and certainly made us feel better. On the wedding day, although we said no formal shots at all please, he managed to get some great pictures of different groups of our friends and family. So from the camera phobia couple, a big thank you, for some great pictures, which we would never have thought, we could have had of our wonderful wedding day.

Matt and Rebecca.

Tony is fantastic and we’re so pleased we chose him as our photographer for our special day. Right from the first phone call all the way through to our wedding day and after, Tony was extremely helpful.

We were looking for someone who really listened to what we wanted, wasn’t pushy, and had very reasonable prices – Tony was all of this!

We absolutely love our photos, thank you so much!

Holly and Steve

We’re so pleased with our wedding photos. You were really receptive to our ideas, helped us to relax into having our photo taken (the engagement shoot definitely helped!), and you and Sophie were a real pleasure to have around on our big day. You got all the shots we wanted in a very understated way, and took great care afterwards editing and applying different filters and effects to the photos you’d taken. We couldn’t be happier with the results!

Laura and Ben

My husband and i threw a 1950s wedding full of colour, fun and vibrancy. We didn’t want matching suits and bridesmaids dresses, we just wanted everybody to feel comfortable but in a vintage style. We wanted a photographer who would capture this style and laid back feel and Tony was perfect. He was open to capturing all kinds of shots which we requested and kept everything natural rather than very formal and typical of some wedding shots. Nothing was too much trouble for Tony and he put us and all our guests at ease. Tony captured the day perfectly and we are thrilled at the results. I cant wait to organise my wedding book now and relive our perfect day all over again. Thank you Tony.

Carol and Phil Wolfenden

Personal thanks from both of us for helping to make the day so enjoyable. We have received the USB stick and were delighted with all the photographs they exceeded our expectations, especially the photographs taken at ‘Surprise View’.

Debs and Matt

“We were absolutely and completely thrilled when we saw the photographs of our wedding.  Tony was incredible to work with, both on our pre wedding shoot and on our wedding day. My husband and I had a wonderful time and were made to feel completely at ease. Friendly, accommodating and relaxed, yet still getting fantastic quality photographs. Also giving great suggestions that we would never have considered. Thank you SO MUCH for capturing our wedding day so beautifully.  We have a perfect reminder of our special day.”

Sian and Seth

Seth and I would highly recommend Tony, his prices are very reasonable compared to other photographers and it was great having the ‘engagement’ photoshoot as this gave us the opportunity to meet Tony before the wedding. We also have some beautiful photos from the photoshoot. Neither of us are particularly comfortable with having our photo taken but Tony put us at ease. On our wedding day Tony was brilliant, we were amazed at how many photos he took and were really happy with the quality and the fact that all of our guests were in the photos! Our guests have all commented on how great the photos are, we didn’t want too many overly formal shots and Tony got the balance just right with lots of ‘fun’ shots but also some beautiful more traditional photos of the wedding party.

James and Alice

Tony,

Thank you so much for providing us with a fantastic wedding album. This is just what we wanted and you captured all the special moments.

Thank you for being so approachable and relaxed not only on the wedding day but also on our pre-wedding shoot. There was nothing you would not do for us and we are truly grateful.

Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for all your hard work.

Steph and Jim

Tony is excellent.

He put us at ease a few months before the wedding, helping plan what it was we wanted and organising a pre wedding shoot so we were comfortable with one another on the day.

Once the big day came, the guy was a ghost. We barely even noticed him (except for when we shot the official, pre-planned reception photos outside the venue).

Tony was able to put our guests at ease and delivered the casual, laid-back and personable images we wanted for our wedding day.

Perfect!

Nicola and Neil

Wow! They look absolutely fantastic.

Thanks for being so patient and easygoing, and for all your help throughout. It was a pleasure to spend our day with you.

All the best,

Gemma and Ben Ellis

We were put at ease as soon as we met Tony and his lovely wife (who did all our flowers on the day)
He captured the day perfectly and made everyone feel comfortable, you didn’t really know he was there and yet we had a picture of every little detail.
Our day was unfortunately a wet one but you wouldn’t realise that looking through the album, which is stunning quality and we will treasure it and the memories forever.
Would recommend Tony to anyone looking for a professional and reliable photographer.

Amy and Ben

Tony and his assistant Andrew did a fantastic job for our wedding. They were really good at getting everyone organised for the group shots with our ‘couple’ shots taking place in between, so they got through our list really quickly. It meant they had time to take lots of extra informal photos which was brilliant.

Tony was also a big help in the run up to the big day; he gave us great tips for getting the schedule right for the day, and even helped us look for catering suppliers when we were struggling to find one. We really appreciated this extra support as we didn’t have an event package.

We received our edited photos in just over a week and we were delighted with them. There were over 1000 for us to choose from, and there were lots of great creative shots. All the photos were vivid and perfectly focused; they really bring the day back to life for us when we look through them. Tony’s prices are very fair and reasonable too.

We would thoroughly recommend Tony to anybody and will certainly go to him again if we want professional photos taken.

Sara and David

Tony was extremely professional and very reliable, always responding quickly to emails and putting us at ease if we had any issues. We were really impressed with our photos and he made sure he took all the photos that we asked for. The engagement shoot allowed us to get to know Tony, which meant it, was so easy on the actual day and felt like he was another member of the wedding party. Thank you!

David and Rebekah Perry

Once we had the pre-wedding shoot pictures we knew we could fully count on Tony to Immortalize our special day, focusing on us, surrounded by the beautiful house and our closest family and friends.

The day was seamless and without any stress. Tony was flexible and knew the venue very well. We had some wonderful shots with beautiful parts of the grounds as well as more focused shots of our nearest and dearest, which just highlights his skill.

We would not hesitate to recommend Tony Hall and Celebration Photography to capture any moment of your special day or event!

Kirsty Michelle Huddlestone

Tony was the best wedding photographer I could have wished for. He totally put up with the Bridezilla in me, but at every meeting suggested great ideas which instilled confidence in me about what we would get for the final album. I was adamant that I didn’t want pictures of lines of guests, instead hoping for creativity to shine through in every shot. That’s exactly what I got and more! We couldn’t be happier with the results. My best friend saw my album and immediately booked Tony for her wedding 100 miles away!”

Natasha and Gavin

Dear Tony

We would like to thank you for making our wedding such a special day, you managed to capture every important moment of the day from start to end and we were never once made to feel rushed or pressured, the whole experience was exactly how i would have wanted it to be very relaxed and lots of fun ! We would most certainly recommend you for any wedding large or small, an absolute pleasure very professional, very kind , thank you Tony !

Amy and Mike

From our pre-wedding shoot right through to helping us put our album together after the wedding, Tony was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made us feel at ease throughout our entire wedding day and captured some pictures that we’ll treasure forever. We couldn’t have asked for a more skilled or professional photographer. and would work with him again should the need arise in the future!

Tony !

Kathryn & Ben

“We wanted to use a local photographer and Tony was more than happy to work with our requirements. He made us feel very comfortable, and Having a pre-wedding shoot was an excellent way of getting us used to being photographed on our wedding day. Even though we had to change wedding venue at the last minute it was no problem for Tony and he came to check out the new venue beforehand. The photos were absolutely amazing and Tony was able to work with the windy weather to provide some stunning shots. Photographs are one of the most important things when it comes to weddings as the day flashes past and the photos help to provide lasting memories. Tony is a fantastic photographer and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”

Christine and David

So pleased we chose Tony as our wedding photographer, the day was captured beautifully, he was a pleasure to work alongside. The end result was a top quality album filled with happy memories of our day.

Richard and Jess

We were very happy with the way Tony and his assistant photographed our wedding. Tony made a special trek out to shoot our engagement photos, which set us up and ready for a fantastic day. We have hundreds of superb quality photos with all arrays of character in each one.

Lindsey

” Outstanding service! Tony makes you feel at ease when under pressure he listens and delivers exactly what you request! No job was ever too big – always accommodating! Would definitely recommend”
