I'm Mark Sisley, and I’ve been shooting weddings throughout the Home Counties and further afield for the past 20 years. My lovely studio is located in a Georgian Manor House near Amersham, Buckinghamshire.
My approach is very relaxed and unobtrusive. I will capture your wedding truthfully, and with a sprinkle of artistic flair, together with any classic poses or groups you may require. I work fast, and I have a keen eye for detail and ability to see the little fleeting moments in-between. I am constantly on the look out for the laughter, the tears, the details and those wonderful emotional moments. I want to tell your wedding day story as candidly and as artistically as I can. My customers want a relaxed and fun wedding that can be enjoyed by them and all their guests .
I prefer not to follow the crowd with the current photographic trends and fads, I much prefer to use my own artistic approach. This ensures that you’ll be the proud keepers of lots of unique wedding images in the years ahead that will never date. I promise you won’t see any filtered, faded or vintage colour casts in my portfolio as is the current trend in my industry, my imagery is processed for optimum natural colours and vibrancy. I would like to believe that my way of working certainly differentiates me from other photographers.
I’m never afraid to push the boundaries or experiment in my pursuit of stunning photographs. I am especially known for my dramatic floodlit night-time photographs at the weddings I attend -you’ll see these unique images displayed throughout my portfolio.
We engaged Mark to take photos of our recent wedding in Henley on Thames. We had decided upon a very intimate registry office wedding with only ourselves and 2 friends as witnesses, so Mark’s challenge was to capture the essence of the day , creating natural , casual and mostly outdoor photos of us wandering along the river and around the beautiful town. Mark immediately put us all at ease resulting in photos that perfectly reflected a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the quirkiness of the day. There were photos of us surrounded by geese and swans, casually chatting to our friends and each other, carefully engineered yet natural, sitting at outside tables at Cafe Rouge toasting each other with glasses of fizz. Mark was unobtrusive yet guided us through the process with humour and we are delighted with the photos which happily depict our memories of the day all set in the beautiful backdrop of Henley on Thames.
Paula & Dave
Just incredible. We really cannot recommend mark highly enough. We had a simply amazing pre wedding shoot at Loch Ness and absolutely amazing photos from the wedding day. Mark was great with all our guests. The wedding photographs were a great mix of shots with some amazing natural pictures that really captured the fun and emotion of our special day. What really stands out with Mark is his creative eye, he sees opportunity for an amazing photo using the surroundings and venue, some photos we just would not have thought of. We were so impressed with what we saw from Marks work and so encouraged by our early conversations that we asked Mark to travel from the south of England to shoot our wedding in Scotland… Thankfully he agreed. We would absolutely without hesitation recommend Mark to friends, family and anyone that asked… they would not be disappointed. Thank you Mark for everything we are absolutely delighted with what you have done for us.
Natasha and James
Thank you for the superb pictures of our wedding. You have captured some stunning images and provided us with wonderful memories of such a special day in our lives. It was great how you took the time before the wedding to meet with us and explain everything. Your insight even helped us plan the timings throughout the day to get all the pictures we wanted. You did a wonderful job of organising us for the group photos and were very accommodating of our requests. You even managed to get us organised after the meal when some of the group were less cooperative… The photos from the preparations, church, reception and dancing are memories that we will cherish forever. Thank you, Alison and Stephen.
Alison & Stephen
We cannot thank Mark enough. From the very first meeting to the day, we knew we had made the right choice. Once we had booked Mark, we had a meeting a couple of weeks before the wedding, at the venue and after Mark had shown us some of his previous work at the venue, we then had a walk around and we got to discuss some ideas of which photos we would like to go for and where we would like them. We also explained that we really didn’t like having our photographs taken and Mark was very reassuring and explained that we just had to pretend like he wasn’t there on the day and it really worked for our confidence. On the day itself we unfortunately had rain, but for Mark, it was no problem. He quickly arranged a different way we could get the shots we wanted and did everything he could to ensure that we got the most beautiful photos. The rain was no issue for him and his can do attitude made me stay so calm. The end shots are stunning and I cannot thank him enough. Don’t hesitate to book Mark
Ally & Malcolm
Wow! We have just received our wedding photos and… we could not be happier! We knew we wanted to book Mark as soon as we saw his work at a wedding fair and am so glad we did! Our photos are amazing and everything and more than we hoped for! We’re not going to lie; we knew Mark was going to provide us with some beautiful wedding photos but when we were pulled out into the dark woods after sundown, we weren’t sure how this was going to happen – but he blew us away! The photos we have received are incredible! He is a very talented man, and he has such a friendly manner, we felt completely at ease and that is hard for us when dealing with a camera and completely out of our comfort zones! We put all our trust in him with our wedding day and we think without him, we might have been a bit lost! No regrets, many of our family and friends commented on how lovely our photographer was. They have complimented his work and are astounded, some of the captures are so natural and he has really captured our wedding day in the best way possible. One of the best parts of our wedding has been the wait for our photos - the day was such a blur, our photos helped us remember parts of the day we’d forgotten about! We can’t wait to get our photo album printed! We can't thank Mark enough.
Atilla and Nicole
A truly wonderful photographer, if you want your photographs to reflect the magic of your special day, then look no further than Mark Sisley. The ultimate gentleman, perfectionist and armed with a true passion for what he does, you will be overwhelmed by the results. There are photographs in our album of moments that had completely passed us by in the blur that is our wedding day. Mark was so subtle, we still remark at how we never noticed him taking the pictures, which surely is a trait of a marvellous photographer. From the first meeting at a wedding fair, I knew that Mark was the only one who I wanted to trust with my wedding pictures. A meeting and walk around at the venue beforehand was marvellous, so he could get a measure of what I wanted, honestly I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Mark, you captured each moment of our day, and the beauty of Hartwell House perfectly. We are overjoyed.
Gemma & Rick
Dear Mark, Firstly we cannot thank you enough for being part of our day. It was clear after our initial meeting we had made the right decision for you to capture our day. Your passion and confidence helped put our minds at ease and you offered your professional opinion where we struggled with making decisions. Now we have viewed our photos we could not be happier, we were over come with emotion reliving our day. We could not recommend Mark enough, through out the day he stayed energetic and his attention to detail is second to none.
Emily & Kaine
Mark, we want you to know that we so LOVE the photographs you took for our wedding. They capture exactly the beauty and happiness of our day perfectly and will be a reminder of how perfect it was for the rest of our lives
Lara and Dave
What a fantastic wedding photographer! When we were forced to change our venue with less than 4 months to go and had to also find a new photographer, it was daunting. But then we came across Mark and we knew our luck had changed! As a preferred supplier at our fabulous new venue at Cliveden House, Mark gave us such confidence. From Day 1 he was a delight to deal with; friendly, professional and very highly responsive. He knew our venue so well, knew all the most picturesque places for some iconic shots and on the day fitted in so well with our guests. Posing the formal pictures with humour and flexibility and discretely taking the more casual photos. He not only took the photos, but he actually added to the enjoyment of the wedding for all our guests through his personality, making a wonderful day even more memorable. Many of our guests commented on how well he worked. And much faster than we expected he delivered our amazing photos! Creative, artistic, comprehensive, just brilliant! Thank you so much Mark, we really appreciated all your hard work and have no hesitation in highly recommending you to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer!
Sue & Jon
When we met Mark at a wedding fair, he had a lovely previous bride with him who was so enthusiastic and wonderful, we just knew we needed a photographer like who made us feel like that. Mark did the most amazing job for our wedding recently, he was so personable and we could not have asked for him to be more professional and in depth for our big day. The results speak for themselves, amazing photos of everyone at the wedding, and the night shots are breath taking. Disappearing for our ‘bus in the woods’ shots was such a highlight of our day. This has to be the no 1 photographer in the area. Mark, thank you so much for your amazing shots and skills, our wedding would not have been the same without you. All our guests commented on how Mark was always in the right place at the right time, able to easily be taking the perfect wedding photos. Also what an absolute laugh Mark was, whilst being so friendly and chatty with all our guests. With such brilliant expertise and a lovely human why wouldn’t you want Mark! We would 100% recommend Mark to anyone, you will get incredible shots and anything Mark suggests, go with it, the outcome is so worth it! Wow… there really isn’t a better way to describe Mark - he’s a 20/5 if we could give that rating we would!
Amy & Sam
Mark’s reputation preceded him. He came highly recommended and lived up to those expectations. We were drawn to his vibrant use of colour and the stunning lighting effects in his portfolio. He showed a knack for grasping what we wanted, even when at times we struggled to put it into words. He was utterly familiar with one of the venues and we spent valuable time visiting the other in advance to assess possible shots and angles, sometimes thinking very quickly on his feet. He put our minds at rest considering possible alternatives in case the weather did not help. Mark is a true artist; we highly recommend his work!
Simon & Gumer
Mark was so organised we were able to completely rely on him to organise our guests for group photos and be discreet and unobtrusive while he took many candid photos of our guests, capturing moments we had missed. He worked incredibly well with all of our guests of all ages including our young cousins who are toddlers and babies. Guests felt at ease, many commenting to us both about Marks mannerisms while interacting with them and the shots they had been shown. Guests who we know are not at ease in front of a camera, appear to be oblivious and comfortable in the photos we have received after the day which is a lovely feeling to know so many of them were put at ease by Marks professionalism. We hired Mark for a full 8 hours coverage, and from the first photos of guests arriving until the last minute of the 8 hours he was still taking photos and making sure to capture every extra little bit he could.
Leona and Matt
Mark was simply AMAZING! He really was more than photographer. From the beginning through to the end he offered endless support, advice and guidance. On the day itself we felt in safe hands and it was like having a friend there with you ! Marks experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best day of your lives! Mark is seriously talented and genuinely loves what he does. If you’re thinking about booking him for your wedding - DO IT!!! You won’t be disappointed! Mark has captured memories we will cherish forever. We will never be able to thank you enough.
Catherine and Mark
We can’t thank Mark enough for the great photos that he took of our wedding. From the initial meeting to the wedding itself Mark was very professional and responsive to our questions/requests and the pricing was very clear and transparent. We opted for the 10 hour package and Mark certainly worked constantly through the full 10 hours at the wedding. As a consequence we got so many perfect photos that we are struggling to pick our favourites for the album! The turn around time after the wedding was also very impressive with some photos available within a couple of days and the rest available within two weeks. We would highly recommend Mark
Cheryl & Gareth
The coronavirus pandemic resulted in our wedding being delayed by a year, a venue change and a huge amount of uncertainty right up until the day of the Wedding itself. Throughout the two years it took to finally arrive at our big day, Mark was consistently calm and understanding. He went above and beyond to accommodate the changes in dates and venue. When it came to finally meeting up for the first time, the day before our wedding, we were immediately struck by how knowledgable and experienced Mark is. Any nerves or worries we had were quickly calmed and we were left confident that everything would be expertly covered. Candid pictures were taken unobtrusively and the staged photos were very well organised. Many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with Mark’s work, in fact our Maid of Honour was so impressed that she’s booked Mark for her wedding too! Emily and I are over the moon with the photos and we can’t recommend Mark highly enough.
Emily & Sam
Thank you so much , your service was amazing from the first time we spoke on the phone to the editing after the wedding , nothing was any trouble . On the day you were awesome, you were invisible yet everywhere and the magic you managed to capture. How you work with light and darkness is just out of this world!
Natalie & Matt
Wow! What a great time we had with Mark at our wedding at Missenden Abbey. Right from our initial meeting when we discussed an outline of our wedding plans, followed by the delays and rebooking due to COVID, Mark was the consummate professional and when we had our pre-ceremony meeting at the venue he was able to suggest a lot of specific shots, and his knowledge of the venue certainly paid off. We’ve had an initial look at the images and the one word “WOW” doesn’t do the gallery or his work justice. We’re so looking forward to selecting some, probably quite a few actually as there are so many great shots to choose from, so we can make up an album (or two) for a proper visual record of our day. What can we say. Thank you so so much Mark, you’ve made a fabulous record of our wedding that we will never forget, and cannot recommend you highly enough. We’re so pleased we made such a great choice in having you as our photographer. Many many thanks
Derek & Helen Rawbone
Dear Mark, We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for capturing our special day and all the emotion that came with it. From the morning in the bridal suite to funny moments that some people missed out on...but we can see them all now! We came across you as a recommended supplier of over 15 years by Missenden Abbey. We instantly felt at ease that you knew the Abbey and different locations and lighting at various times of the day to take the best photos. We browsed your work and knew we wanted you! The bright, emotional, uplifting photos were really what we were looking for, and we wanted YOU to capture those moments on our big day. We absolutely loved having you as our photographer, your knowledge of photography is tremendous and a clear passion of yours which made us feel more excited about what the outcomes could be, but you over delivered! All of our guests commented on how great and efficient you were and how hard you worked. you made a lot of people that aren’t used to having their photos taken feel at ease. You completely fitted into our day and we didn’t feel like we were spending the day being models, you simply just advised that we let the day flow and the pictures will come....and wow, you were absolutely right! We weren’t really sure what to expect but we are so happy with the results. You worked so hard all day & remained very professional and we cannot thank you enough. You really listened to our every need and we cannot recommend you highly enough. Your knowledge of photography is second to none and we’re so pleased that we chose you to capture our day. We would recommend you to anyone looking for fun, bright, statement photos of their big day. Thank you again, Lauren & Alex
Lauren & Alex
Caroline and I would like to extend our warmest thanks for the superb job you made of our wedding photography earlier this year. It really was a perfect day with everything going as we had dreamed and to have you there, with your professional eye capturing all the moments, smiles and joy in addition to the more formally posed photos has given us memories we can treasure forever. Even the British weather wasn't a challenge for you, being prepared for everything and patient to ensure photo shots were timed throughout the day to get the best of outdoor conditions. Many of our guests commented on how polite and professional you were, it does give people encouragement to know such an important event is in safe hands and we felt that from our first meeting, and through subsequent calls and meetings then through the day itself. Your knowledge of Taplow house, it's nooks and crannies really shines through. The photos look absolutely superb and the biggest challenge now will be choosing which we like the most!! Thanks and Best Regards, Ian and Caroline
Ian & Caroline
The words thank you just don’t cut it for how extremely grateful we are for you agreeing to not only be the photographer at our wedding but the stunningly beautiful photos you have given us of our special day. From the initial visit to our venue you were first choice and boy did we make the right one! Your knowledge of the venue and where the best lighting would be are second to none! To say wow is an understatement! Looking through them all took us right back to the day from start to finish; it was as if we were there doing it all over again. You truly and completely captured every little detail of our day, making the hot pink colour scheme really shine against the incredible back drops at our reception venue with the results being so fairy tale and magical. On the day you captured the photos with such ease, never taking us away from our guests for too long and the speed in which you organised the group shots was amazing. Throughout the whole process you were extremely professional and friendly, listening to what we wanted and also giving your own recommendations in line with our vision. You even went above and beyond helping the groomsmen with their button holes! Not only did we love you but so did all our wedding guests who have done nothing but sing your praises since. You didn’t feel like our photographer at all during the wedding; you felt like a friend there celebrating with us. The images you have given us of our perfect day are nothing but perfect themselves. You really are a master of photography! We’ve already begun recommending you to other couples! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Kayleigh & Jonathan
Kayleigh & Jonathan
We were so fortunate to have Mark do the photography for my daughter's wedding. After looking at a number of websites we knew we only wanted Mark and were relieved that he was available. The experience was excellent throughout, from the first phone call to receiving the photos. Mark met us prior to the wedding and his professionalism and experience became apparent very quickly. He had some wonderful ideas to make the most of available backgrounds and his eye for detail was exceptional. Mark has a natural ability to make everyone feel relaxed and this shone through in the beautiful posed photos. For the majority of the day Mark effortlessly blended into the background producing the real essence of a wonderful day. Many guests commented on how great Mark was on the day and the photos really do show this. I would without a doubt recommend Mark to capture your special day. Thank you so much Mark.
Alyssa & George
Mark recently took the photos for our wedding and we can’t recommend him highly enough. From the initial meeting and discussion over our venue, his passion for photography really came through and it was an absolute pleasure listening and discussing with him the style and type of photos he would take. On the day itself, Mark directed us and the guests and ensured we got the pictures we hoped for. The final pictures are absolutely stunning and he has not only managed to capture the day in amazing detail, but managed to bring out the happiness and enjoyment from the day. When we got a chance to sit and review the hundreds of pictures Mark had taken on the day we couldn’t have been happier we choose to work with him.
Rachel & Chris
As a Covid bride this year you can imagine the stress and anxiety of cancelled weddings, venue changes and never ending changes to the guest numbers! Despite all this Mark was simply fantastic. He went the extra mile to make sure he was available for all the changed dates at very little notice. He quite frankly made the day. Without his experience and expertise we would never have got the amazing photos we did, to a venue none of us had ever been to before, and all with only a couple of weeks notice. He got every shot we could have asked for and more. His professionalism and dedication to making our memories of the day so perfect, was impressive and everyone who attended could not comment more highly on Mark. Fantastic photographer, highly professional and would 100% recommend.
It is almost impossible to praise this very charming photographer too highly. His professionalism, the quality of his photos and the sheer positive enthusiasm that he has for his work. His photos were inventive, sensitive, beautifully constructed and highly professional. Never once was he an intrusion and the final gallery of photos that he presented were more than one could possible have hoped for. We really cannot thank him enough for his work or recommend him too highly
Mark & Daniele
We can't thank you enough for taking such amazing photographs of our wedding recently. They are perfect! You really understood the 'natural but formal' pictures that we were after, and even made sure that all of our guests featured in a photo somewhere. A few of the pictures really were a snapshot moment, and how you managed to capture them we will never know! You were fantastic with the younger wedding guests, and they absolutely loved being so involved. The photos are such a fantastic way of remembering a special day, and we will always look through these with joy and happiness. We can't wait to show these off to our family an friends - thank you! Many thanks, Marie and Rich
Marie & Rich
5 stars, 10 out of 10, 100% - use whichever measure you wish our experience was that Mark is a wonderful photographer. He is warm and friendly and all of our guests commented on how "good" and "nice he was". His attention to detail in our "posed" shots has made for some amazing pictures (who knew we could look so good!?). He also managed to capture some great shots of our venue and guests in a very relaxed and unobtrusive way. As time passes and our memory of the day fades, Mark has provided us with a fantastic set of photographs to remind us and keep the memories fresh. Richard & Iwa - Taplow House Hotel
Iwona & Richard
Our wedding was a truly magical day, which has been beautifully captured by Mark Sisley. Mark instantly became one of the family members as soon as he entered my parents house. We were surprisingly calm and this allowed us to create some really happy shots, even though we were restricted to stay indoors to prevent my veil blowing away in the windy conditions! When my dad and I arrived at the ceremony, the first comforting face I saw was Mark’s. No one needs to feel nervous when you’ve got a wealth of experience surrounding you - his comforting words were so appreciated before we entered the ceremony. His peaceful aura allowed us to enjoy every second of the day. And during the ceremony, Mark was invisible to us - whilst capturing so many stunning romantic shots. The happiness of our day continued at the venue where we could finally have some beautiful pictures taken in the picturesque gardens, this was despite the rain! In order to achieve the amazing photographs in the soggy conditions - Mark had the entire bridal party making us laugh, holding brollies, and placing flowers close to the lens for some special effects. They loved every minute of being involved - the whole time Mark was invisible to us - whilst capturing some stunning shots! Even though we were feeling a little tired towards the end of the evening, we were really keen to pose for some of Mark’s signature floodlit evening poses, and we are so happy we did! These particular photos are breathtaking, and we can’t wait to have one enlarged to hang in our home to remind us of our special day. We can’t thank Mark enough; for not only taking truly amazing photos of our wedding day, but also for his exceptional organisational skills. With Mark you don’t just get an amazing photographer, but you also get a fabulous coordinator to make sure the day runs smoothly. Thank you so much Mark, Laura & Michael x
Laura & Michael
Anthony and I felt very comfortable with Mark from our first meeting in his studio, through to our big day. We had a truly wonderful wedding day, and Mark definitely captured the spirit and the mood of the day to perfection. A lot of our guests commented on how patient and utterly professional Mark was, and we certainly felt that he was there for us, to ensure that we got the best memories possible from our special day. We are very happy with our pictures, and they are a true reflection of the memories that we have. Thank you Mark! Selena & Anthony
Selena & Anthony
Dear Mark, Wow, the pictures are truly stunning and some of them are just hilarious. We’ll definitely enjoy looking at them over and over again! The colours, clarity and composition are just exquisite, but we have to say that our favourites are the floodlit ones you captured, but we love them all! We cannot thank you enough. The photos are just amazing, and you were definitely the best wedding photographer for Bucks on the web, and you didn’t disappoint! You have captured the story of our day fabulously which is just what we were after, perfectly beautiful! We’ll certainly be recommending you to everyone, including our wedding planner at Halton House. Kind regards, Ali & Craig
Ali and Craig
Dear Mark I wanted to write and say a thousand thank yous for the fantastic photos that you took on our wedding day. You have captured the beautiful atmosphere of the day and created memories that we are so proud of and can look back on with absolute pleasure for the rest of our lives. Everybody we have spoken to has found some photos of themselves that they like and the group shots were brilliant. We have had so many complements on your professionalism and attention to detail, especially in the group photos and I can’t thank you enough. It was the best day of my life and I am so happy that we found you to take the photos. With kind regards, Louise & Marcus
Louise and Marcus
Andrew and I spent considerable time selecting a wedding photographer and have been absolutely thrilled with the exceptionally high quality of photos that you have captured of our wedding day. You struck perfectly the delicate balance between ensuring all our wish-list photos were taken whilst maintaining the jovial mood of the occasion. Our large group photo demonstrates so clearly your ability to 'direct' guests without losing the atmosphere and your eye for detail ensured that every single face was clearly visible and facing the camera. At all stages of the process, we found you to be highly personable, professional, an excellent communicator and above all, an outstanding photographer. We now face the unenviable task of selecting our images for the album - all 600 plus photos are stunning and an instant reminder of the wondrous day we all had. We cannot recommend you highly enough.
Angela & Andrew
I could not have chosen better! The venue was booked, wedding dress sorted and now the other bits. I asked Georgie what I could do and she said we need a photographer. I was impressed with the way you presented yourself, I found you through Google. I did not know at the time how much of an impact this decision could have, the importance of capturing the perfect day professionally was distorted by the thought that I needed to find someone who could take some pictures. Thankfully I chose the best, but I could be laying low now if my initial instincts had been misguided rather than basking in the glory. To be honest I feel a bit smug that I found you and the resulting ‘perfect memories’. Couples should not think twice about whether to commission you to capture their special occasion, you are up there with the top value decisions that I have made in my life. The pride I had walking Georgie down the aisle to meet Ricardo is a once in a lifetime privilege and having a friendly yet totally professional person in charge of capturing the moment was very special. I would highly recommend you to anyone considering who to trust in making this ‘bigger than you think’ decision having experienced your results. Thank you so much for making the perfect day last with a lifetime of wonderful reminders.
Dear Mark, Jonathan and I are overjoyed with our beautiful photographs from our wedding at the Dairy, Waddesdon. You have not only captured the beauty of the venue but you have captured the essence of our family and friends. Your photos show what an amazing and fun day we had. You gave us confidence from our early meetings and emails that we would not need to worry about the photographs but they have exceeded our expectations. The formal photos balance with the fun informal pictures added with the touches of the venue which will remind us in the future of what a great day it was. We didn't even realise you had taken some of the photographs and they were such a surprise to see. Thank you Mark for being so lovely, relaxed, helpful, professional and unobtrusive and for providing us with an incredible reminder of what an outstanding wedding we had!
Amanda & Jonathan
We first met Mark at a wedding fair at Missenden Abbey in Buckinghamshire. He was actually the first photographer we met and after listening to him at the wedding fair we were very impressed with what he had to say, together with his brochure and website. We had total confidence in his expertise. We met with him prior to the event to talk through the day, and the kind of shots we wanted. We particularly wanted photos that were not too formal and more relaxed. On the day, he got straight into shooting and in a friendly way managed the shots. He was very efficient in organising the group poses, and very good at getting shots of us easily with our family and friends. I can honestly say from the brief we had a couple of days before that he knew exactly what we wanted and exactly where to photograph us at the right times. We are now in receipt of the photographs he took, and we are very pleased with them. He also enhanced our favourite photographs to an even higher standard, but to be honest we thought the they were perfect as they were on the gallery. He also offers extra services which include albums, or you can just opt for all the photographs on a USB, which was perfect for us. We would say that he offers a package to suit all needs and pockets. We would not hesitate in recommending Mark Sisley for any photographic occasion.
Debra and Peter
We spent a long time researching the perfect photographer to capture the pictures at our Cliveden House wedding. Then we came across Mark Sisley's website. The photos looked amazing, and his website was very professional. We arranged for a meeting at his studio to view his portfolio and to discuss our big day. His photographs were fantastic, plus he has a lovely personality, my now husband and I warmed to him immediately. He has taken the most amazing photos capturing every moment and more, and his work was to very high standard. All our guests thought he was fabulous, and they loved how passionate he was about his work. If you want a top photographer for any occasion we highly recommend Mark Sisley. We couldn't of found a better person for the job! Thank You Mark. Melina & Nick
Melina & Nick
A huge thank you to Mark for your superb photography at our wedding in August. From our experience of liaising with Mark over the last year, we not only knew that we would have beautiful photographic memories of our wedding, but also that Mark's professionalism and organisational skills would contribute to the smooth running of the day. The relaxed pre-wedding consultation gave us an opportunity to discuss all our options, with many photographs and album styles to look through and guide our discussions. On the day, Mark recalled these details, organising guests for group shots and spotting opportunities to capture some of the types of images we had discussed. Mark also worked beyond his booked hours to take some beautiful night shots and photograph our late evening entertainers - much appreciated. Despite thinking we are a rather camera-shy couple, the photo shoots are actually one of our fondest memories of the day! We were made to feel very comfortable and had fun seeking out imaginative backdrops and poses throughout the venue (including a touch of 'rock climbing' in the venue's secret garden!) Our guests continue to comment on how professional and amiable Mark was. It was a real pleasure to have you share the day with us - thanks again. Hannah and Rob (The Dairy, Waddesdon)
Hannah and Rob
Dear Mark, For us, a photographer for our wedding was a must, however we both hate having our photo taken. We were both apprehensive about our initial meeting with you to discuss our needs, but within seconds of meeting starting you had put us at ease. You explained your approach to photography and it was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere without too much formality, but still to have our memories captured. We found out about you through our venue, Hampden House, and they were delighted that we hired you. Having a photographer that knows the venue as well as yourself allowed us to have truly memorable photos which encompassed the historical architecture and the striking grounds. You knew exactly what locations within the venue worked best and made use of the spring / early summer blooms to our advantage. Many of our guests commented how efficient, polite and professional you were and how you kept the whole day flowing to work with the schedule that was needed for the day to run smoothly. As promised, access to our photographs arrived whilst we were on honeymoon. They were beautiful, and as two people who hate having their photo taken, there are hundreds of photos that we both love. Kat & Lee

Dear Mark, We would first like to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding day an occasion we will never forget. We first met you at a wedding fayre and immediately felt you were the photographer for us, and boy were we right. Despite having a very relaxed, friendly and laid back personality you immediately took control of the 100-strong wedding party in a very professional manner. At both the church and the wedding venue, Taplow House, you selected the most perfect scenes and backdrops to create images of the day that are unforgettable. The clarity, sharpness and light effects in the photographs are the best we've ever seen and we remember waiting for clouds to pass over in your quest for the perfect picture. As at most weddings there were children, and sometimes children do not easily pose for the photographer but with your friendly disposition, they were soon smiling and eating our of your hand. We particularly liked the casual photographs you took during the evening when people were not posing but just acting naturally. All we can say is that you did a great job for us and we couldn't be more grateful. Best wishes, Daniel & Natasha

We cannot speak highly enough of Mark and the fantastic work he does. From our first meeting, through to ordering our final images he was helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. Mark was easy to reach in the run up to our big day and was always on hand to give his expert advice on anything that we were unsure about. The wedding day itself could not have run any more smoothly. Even with the adverse weather conditions, Mark was able to capture every aspect of the day beautifully, documenting all of the special little moments, making the most of the fantastic scenery at our venue (The Dairy, Waddesdon) and offering some fantastic, off-the-cuff, alternative shots throughout.
