Testimonials


We would like to take this opportunity to thank Lorna for helping make our wedding day as special as it was, and for capturing some great moments with family and friends that we will be able to look back on for years to come. Lorna went above and beyond what was expected, from the coffee catch up we had prior to booking her, the meetings at the venue/local area leading up to the wedding, and working tirelessly (even after the big day) to have our photos back to us and being on hand to discuss every last request! We honestly could not have asked for someone more dedicated. On the big day itself Lorna was so professional, friendly and laid back. Our family and friends loved her too!

After meeting several photographers we thought we would have to settle for “ok, but not quite right” however once my wife and I met Lorna at a wedding fair it changed to “wow, she’s awesome”!

That was just the beginning and she was an absolute angel from the first moment we chose her as our wedding photographer. Nothing was too much and she made us feel so at ease that we chuckled all the way through the whole preparation and big day.

This is all good and well you might say…are the photos any good?? HELL YEAH they are. Not only does she get her photos winning accolades and awards but she captures the best moments of the day that you would otherwise lose in the mist of the day. Lorna as a wedding photographer and as an all round amazing person. She was brilliant from the moment we met her and we always felt comfortable! No task was too big for her and she accommodated all of our many requests! The photos say it all really!

We love Lorna and can’t thank her enough for what she did for us. Look no further for your photography needs.

“I can’t believe we are married 6 years. I still find myself sitting in a trance staring at our wedding photos that hang on the wall. Its not often that you look at a photo of your self and think “Wow…I look so amazing” ! and to be fair so does my husband!

Lorna turned a crazy windy and at times very wet Irish day into something dramatic and romantic. She knew which photos were important to us and didn’t give up until she had captured them. From ensuring the beautiful scenery was a backdrop to documenting the small details I spent hours making for the table centerpieces. So much time and effort is put into having the “perfect” wedding day, I get great satisfaction looking through the photos and thinking it was everything we hoped it would be.

I hardly noticed Lorna was there during the chaos of getting ready or during the church ceremony and yet the images she caught are amazing. Throughout the day she moved around the wedding party, at times unnoticed taking great natural photos and when it was needed she organised people to pose putting them at ease and getting great family photos that we treasure. Its not easy to convince a bunch of South Africans to stand out in the cold, but Lorna charmed my husbands family, they had such fun she got amazing shots, you can’t even tell they are freezing cold!

Lorna is professional yet easy going and bursting with creativity. Nothing was too much trouble and we were confident she would capture all the special memories of the day. The results exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful.”

“Lorna was our dream find for our wedding. She is such an enthusiastic and dedicated professional as well as a truly lovely person. And the photos she took for us are simply stunning.

We had our wedding spread over three venues. Lorna visited each one with us beforehand not only to get to know them but also to get to know us. This level of dedication was there thought the wedding day itself– from the getting ready right through to the last dance. And when Lorna presented us with our Wedding Album it was like opening a bit of heaven!

We know that we got the best photographer around for our wedding, and so we will be booking Lorna for our First Anniversary do next year!”

We feel so lucky to have had Lorna as our wedding photographer and the end results were exactly what we’d hoped for!  Before the wedding I spent time with Lorna discussing what sorts of things I liked, she was really open to ideas and so easy to chat to and she deserves massive credit for translating our indecisive ramblings into a much clearer vision!  I felt that her ultimate goal was to ensure that we ended up with photos that we loved and that in turn would make her happy.

I was really nervous on the day prior to the service and Lorna was brilliant at easing the tension and making everyone feel relaxed, she was the great combination of discreet and determined that meant she caught some lovely unplanned shots and made sure everyone was where they should be for any formal shots as well.

Lots of guests have commented to me about Lorna’s energy on the day – she was relentless in capturing all the elements of the day as well as some amazing portrait shots not only of the wedding party but of guest groups as well.  What was most important for us was to capture the essence and feeling of the day and Lorna most definitely achieved that for us.

We couldn’t have made a better choice than Lorna for our wedding photographer.

She was super to work with right from the first contact – listened carefully to exactly what we wanted and delivered exactly what we were hoping for. She caught some great moments and worked hard to be in the right place at the right time, which really paid off.

Lots of our guests commented on what a lovely, energetic presence she was on the day too. Have to agree with all the positive comments in the reviews below – she really manages to put people at ease and organise them at the same time.

We were 100% delighted with our pictures and would recommend her to anyone.

When I first met Lorna at a tiny wedding fair I knew she was our photographer. I had a specific ‘Vogue’ idea of what I had in mind for our wedding pictures but Lorna understood my vision and we worked really well together.

She explained everything and welcomed all the questions I had (and there were A LOT of them!!) we met at the venue a week before to decide which pictures would work and we felt totally at ease! I think this is why we felt so calm on our wedding day, we knew that everything was taken care of and as a result the pictures were amazing.

On the day she didnt boss everyone around or make the photos the key focus of the day, she blended in, was so friendly and polite and we had nothing but great feedback from all our guests.

Lorna was our photographer for our wedding in October. As soon as we met her she put us at ease and I’m delighted to say we made an excellent choice. Not only does Lorna have excellent technical and artistic skills, she is also wonderful with people which is so important in getting the best pictures of people.

After the wedding Lorna commented that she thought all of our friends and family were so lovely and how great it was to see so many smiles when she reviewed the pictures. Yes, our friends and family are wonderful, but it was Lornas’ very natural ability to interact with everyone, spot and create great photo opportunities that helped get the best pics of our guests and us.
So many guests told us how much they thought of Lorna which was lovely to hear. Aside from her great photos Lorna was also a massive help during the day, she is sharp and on the ball. She saw me struggling with slight a cough during the ceremony and before I knew it a bottle of water appeared. My microphone also died on me, only for Lorna to appear with new batteries to save the day.

We were so pleased with our pictures, mostly because we thought they really caught the character of us both and also our guests. This was in so small part to Lorna just being such a nice helpful person, from the early meetings, the day itself and also the contact afterwards.

A great photographer, but just as importantly, a really lovely person to work with and I can’t rate her or her great hard work ethic highly enough. Wonderful!

My now Husband and I have been liaising with Lorna for about 18 months now, from the beginning she has shown excellent communication, clear about prices and the package offered for the wedding. She has been accommodating when meeting us for engagement shoot, pre-wedding plans, on the day and even after to discuss albums and prints! During both engagement shoot and Wedding day Lorna show vibrancy and creativity, she also was great at putting us at ease and getting every one smiling. One thing that I noticed (compared to other photographers at weddings) is Lorna is very good at getting the group shots, ensuring everyone it together and being clear, concise and loud to gather the crowd. We allowed plenty of time on the day for photos and group shots and they were all done quicker than we thought due to Lorna’s ability to gather every one quickly and get every one relaxed, smiling and look at camera! During the ceremony we didn’t really notice Lorna’s presence, she kept out of the way but still managed to capture amazing photos, many of which I wasn’t even aware she was there! She has been fab through the whole process, her energy and creative flare really ensured we have a fantastic wedding album to treasure forever!

“On the day we both were very nervous, but Lorna made us feel instantly at ease. She talks you through everything and was happy to accommodate everything we wanted from the day.

Everyone enjoyed having the pictures taken by Lorna, she made it fun and friendly and we barely noticed she was taking pictures during the ceremony. She got all the picture we ask for and more, they are beautiful and of such an amazing quality.

The evening was soooo much fun with the photo booth, such a great idea!! Everyone joined in and had a good giggle with all the props. It was a super way to get amazing evening pictures with such a fun twist to them. Everyone joined in and got involved, even my 87 year old nan got stuck in and loved it !!

We could not have ask for more for our big day and we have some amazingly beautiful pictures, giving us memories that we can cherish forever ”

“Lorna was amazing!!

She was able to work around my paranoia with photography and managed to capture those little moments throughout the day.

Lorna was able to work around the non-traditional requirements of my guests, and my fiance, family and friends absolutely loved her.

It was an absolute pleasure having Lorna cover my engagement day.

Thank you thank you thank you! xxx”

I can’t believe it’s taken me 7-8 months to write a review about our magically wedding day at the Orsett Hall last year Aug. You did such a fabulous job from beginning to end.

I’m not one for taking photographs but somehow you made me look like a Princess, well a Queen as the hubby tells me. We are so greatful to you for capturing such wonderful memorable photos of Us, our friends and family too.

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t find myself looking through our Wedding photos and they’re all over the house showering love all over our marital home too. For someone who literally hates taking pictures like me, I constantly find myself looking back at our wedding photos stare and think to myself “Gosh we look Good”

You truly are gifted at your craft and we’ll surely be using you again for our BIG life changing event and would for sure HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU!
Thank you Lorna you truly are the best with such a warm grounded personally too – Thank you xxxxx

We would like to say a huge thank you for making our day extra special. You truly were a superstar!

Lorna worked so hard throughout the whole day and the pictures are absolutely amazing, we are so impressed with them all. Very very professional, and we have had so many comments on the quality of them and her work on the day. Really one of the best photographers by far.

The photo-booth was a great idea and it really kept everyone entertained all day, including our little ones.You took the pressure of our day and you caught all of our special moments and more on camera. Thank you again for your superb work. I would highly recommend you to anyone we know.’

I cannot recommend Lorna enough.

Not only did lorna help take away my nerves on my wedding day, she was also a tremendous support throughout my whole wedding planning process.

I didn’t know lorna before I booked her, however I instantly knew I made the right decision. On the day lorna was so professional, friendly and laid back, and I have had endless compliments about lorna from family and guests.

We barely knew she was there all day yet I have endless wedding snaps, many of which I didn’t even know had been taken. My wedding photos are 100% perfect.
Great value for money. Do not hesitate to book lorna for your special occasion.

I came across Lorna by chance having seen the pictures from a wedding on Facebook. I absolutely loved the photos so messaged her to see if she was available for my wedding day. Lorna responded promptly and we soon arranged a time to meet. As soon as I met Lorna I felt at ease and I had complete faith that she knew exactly how we wanted our special day captured. When our day was just a few weeks away we met at the venue and did a walk around. On the day itself Lorna was just amazing she got on so well with all our guests and we got all the photos we asked for. We got our sneak peek photos within a week and all the other ones in a super timely manner. I can honestly say how fantastic they all are. I cannot recommend Lorna and her work highly enough! Thank you so much Lorna, Chris and I will always appreciate your hard work on our wedding day! Xx

“With nothing left from the chaos of the wedding for me and my partner apart from the photographs on the day, they pictured the day perfectly. All the emotions, excitement, love, tears and joy all depicted in photographs beautifully taken by Lorna.

She worked in such a professional manner from when she was first appointed by visiting the venue, familiarising herself with the agenda of the day and extracting from us our exact expectations so she can only exceedingly deliver.
She took care of the both of us and our guests so well on the day, and her energetic approach was unforgettable. She really took care for my special details on the day and non-traditional wedding requirements which was really thoughtful of her.

I love my wedding photos to bits and with her swift return of them it meant that our families abroad could also share our happy memories with us.
I’m so happy I stumbled upon Lorna’s website and would never have chosen it to be any other way.
Thank you for all your hard work Lorna-It was a pleasure having you there.”

“We couldn’t be happier with the job Lorna did on photographing our wedding. She is clearly very experienced as she knew all the right things to ask, which made life so much easier for us. She was thoroughly professional, met with us beforehand to nail down our requirements, scouted out the venue ahead of time, and on the big day she was incredible.

Looking through the photos it was like we were experiencing it all over again! On the day she was great at gathering people, especially the kids, and she seemed to appear at just the right moments to get the best shots.

Everyone commented on how hard she worked and how pleasant an experience it was. Would recommend her to anyone.

ST STEPHEN’S – HAMPSTED, LONDON

We are so pleased with our wedding photos, they are so fresh and modern and perfectly capture the feel of the day!
It was great working with Lorna, we met for coffee months before the wedding and she completely ‘got’ what we were after – keeping things totally relaxed and casual with as few posed shots as possible.
On the day, Lorna slotted in effortlessly, taking the necessary (but beautiful) group and posed shots in a matter of moments and telling the story of the day from start to finish. Our guests loved her! I think she got candid photos of every single guest which was wonderful, as well as capturing all of the little details we’d spent so many hours deciding on.
We can’t recommend Lorna enough for wedding photography, it really was a pleasure to have her there!
Thank you so much

We used Lorna for our big day and what can I say? She was 100% reliable and professional throughout! She even checked into a hotel close to our venue the night before to ensure she wasn’t late for our ‘getting ready’ pics. Everyone commented on how great she was at capturing as many shots as possible, which was great for our natural shots of the day. I gave Lorna a list of pictures that I wanted and she made sure that she got them all (which was great as I had forgotten all about them whilst wrapped up in the moment!). Even though Lorna had only been paid up until a certain time, she made sure she stayed a little later to capture our cake cutting, which had slightly over run on the day. All in all Lorna was easy to work with and a great joy! Everyone commented on her great work and friendliness towards the wedding party and guests throughout the day. I would highly recommend this very talented lady for any professional photos you may need; our wedding photos turned out amazing!

Lorna is a fantastic photographer I would highly recommend her to anyone. I’m not a great fan of having my picture and neither is my husband but Lorna made us both feel really relaxed and sometimes would forget she was even there. All our guests commented on how polite Lorna is and how she was not pushy to get a picture. We met with Lorna a couple of times before the wedding to discuss what we would like and what we wouldn’t like. Lorna kept us up to date with how everything was going. My photos are amazing and can’t thank her enough for what she captured.
