It is an exciting yet daunting moment when you embark upon the thrilling task of planning your wedding. There are almost too many options surrounding each decision that needs to be made. This being said there are a few that undoubtedly every couple knows that they need. One of these is finding a photographer. We first met David at our very first wedding fayre, we walked in through the door and were met with a display of photography that truly took our breath away. The detail, the elegance and the beautiful moments captured forever were truly amazing. Then enter David himself. We instantly liked his professionalism and it was clear from that first meeting that he cares about capturing each couples day is its own special way. We carried on our planning journey as we, at this point didn't even have a date set. We visited many wedding fayres and found a continuous trend- We compared each we saw to that of David and came to the undoubted conclusion than none came close. We were delighted when we were able to match up our dates so we could have David photograph our special day. Then, as for many, enter Covid. We had to postpone the wedding and undergo the task of moving each component to a new date. This in itself is simular to planning a second wedding and not something I hope anyone reading this has to do. David was not only completely supportive but went above and beyond helping us find new suppliers when ones we had booked were unable to do our new date. His communication leading up to our wedding day (take two!) Was fantastic. One the day itself, David made us all feel at ease, this is not only my experience but obvious from the amazing photos that we now can cherish for years to come. He captures the fun, the joy and the emotions of the day is such a way that we will be forever grateful. We cannot recommend David highly enough.
David captured our wedding last year at Caswell House. After getting in touch with him in a relatively short time before our plan for a smaller COVID wedding we knew he was the photographer we wanted. He was very professional on the day and captured the day so perfectly and sensitively down to every last detail! Going through all of our pictures David has sent us over, we are totally BLOWN AWAY!! We cannot recommend him highly enough and we cannot thank him enough. Thank you David. Love Mr & Mrs Orchard x
I first met David when he photographed my brother and sister in law’s wedding in 2014 and he was top of my list when I became engaged in 2019. My husband and I married at a venue in Central London which David had never photographed for a wedding before. His preparation for the day was impeccable, which included taking the time to scope out the venue in advance and meet with the staff to make sure he was familiar with the surroundings and identify the best spots for photographs. On the day itself he was fantastic. He has an uncanny ability to get shots and capture moments without you realising he is even there which makes choosing the wedding album a harder job than planning the wedding itself!
We could not have been happier with the service David provided. I know a fair few couples who regretted their choice of photographer or didn't like the final photos, so we were keen to get this right. David is incredibly easy to get on with and clearly has extensive knowledge and experience. The pre-wedding shoot was a great way to get us used to having our picture taken, and also get to know each other a bit better. In the lead up to the day, David's experience was invaluable and communication was quick & easy. On the day day itself, he was amazing. He seemed to be everywhere, catching every special moment. I was so excited to see the photos and they did not disappoint. We received hundreds of amazing pictures. The hardest part is whittling them down to pick what goes in the album. We can't recommend David highly enough.
David took the photos at our wedding at the Tower of London in September - without exception all of the photos are amazing and we will find it hard to choose which to display in frames. David took the time to get the light and background just right - brilliant quality and no hesitation in recommending him.
what a pleasure to photograph a wedding in such an iconic London landmark as The Tower of London and what lovely images we managed to capture together. Thanks for your review Wendy
David Bostock Photography's response
David is fantastic photographer. We are in love with all of the amazing pictures he captured on our wedding day. We could not recommend David highly enough - booking him was definitely one of the best decision we made. From start to finish he has been professional and helpful - from the lead up to our wedding day to the aftercare when designing and picking the photographs for our beautiful photo album. Thank you David!
what a pleasure to photograph such a happy wedding in such a beautiful setting outdoors as The Dairy at Waddesdon and what lovely images we managed to capture together on such a sunny hot day. Thanks for your review Laura
David Bostock Photography's response
David Bostock photographed our gorgeous daughter and son in laws wedding at Aynho Church followed by reception at The Great Barn .on 17 August 2019 . We booked David after meeting him at the wedding fayre at the barn. Laura and Luke to to him straight away, so we booked David to do one of the most important jobs to capture photos to last s lifetime. David arrived at our house for the first time on the wedding morning, it was like we had known him years. He just naturally walked round capturing the most beautiful moments getting ready for the biggest day of a bride and her parents life. Then off to church he’s professional manner continues capturing our happy families celebrating this day. Followed by a reception at The Great Barn @ Aynho. Our photos are truly beautiful, they have bought back all those memories of a perfect day.Our daughters wedding day Thank you David , we can’t recommend you highly enough
We knew we were in good hands when we met David and saw the beautiful wedding photographs he has produced in the past. On our big day he was well acquainted with our venue and where we could capture the best shots. Many of our guests failed to notice he was there and yet he still managed to take really beautiful and natural photographs. We are very pleased with the images he has captured for us and it is going to be so difficult to choose a final edit for the album! Would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a truly professional photographer.
Jacqueline & Adam
We booked our wedding at the De vere latimer estate on the 3rd of August 2019. We first met David at a wedding fair and fell In love with his pictures and the albums he created, we had to pick him as are photographer. What I love about David is that he is so kind and he takes natural pictures that really capture the moments of the day. David is so much fun to have as a photographer and make you feel comfortable when he takes the pictures. Our wedding photos are amazing and have truly told the story of our day from start to finish. We are over the moon. Thank you so much David we would highly recommend you to everyone. Love Ella and Sam

We booked David for our wedding at Hedsor House in April 2019. From our first meeting we knew we had made the right choice. David is friendly, professional and extremely knowledgable. We had a pre-wedding shoot which really helped get us comfortable in front of the camera and we have some gorgeous shots to keep too. On the day, David was fantastic moving between multiple venues to make sure all the key moments were captured. We were running quite behind schedule so we only had 15 mins for the main photos of the two of us but David knew exactly where to take the best shot and we’ve ended up with lots of amazing photos to choose from. You’d have no idea how rushed we were! Helen is lovely too and always responded quickly to my many questions! We would highly recommend David to anyone! Thank you again. Caroline & Chace
David photographed our wedding in April 2019 and did an amazing job. From the first time we spoke to him a year before the big day until we received our photos he was always professional, courteous and timely with his responses. The pre shoot we did was fun and we got some nice photos. We had several calls in the run up to the day which was really appreciated to settle the nerves. On the day we barely noticed David outside of the ‘main photo slots’ which was really nice and meant we could fully relax and enjoy every moment and yet when we received the photos he managed to capture them all!! The photos were so incredible and made us so happy and grateful, we got them just 2 weeks after the wedding and have loved looking at the 600+ photos we received capturing the whole day. Thank you so much David for capturing our day in such an amazing way. We can’t recommend him enough!!! Nick and Hazel
Nick & Hazel
We would highly recommend David - the whole experience from start to finish has was completely stress-free (unlike most other aspects of planning/the actual day!). David's experience, skill and attention to detail was evident to us from the start - he asked us what was important to us and he took it from there and ensured it happened (discretely but effectively). He created some absolutely fantastic memorable shots in not easy (and sadly) wet conditions. Due to the heavy rain we were dubious about the quality of the shots outside but thanks to David's clever positioning / lighting / editing etc, we couldn't even see the rain (or umbrella) in the pictures. The edited pictures of the whole day were ready and waiting for us almost as soon as we came back from honeymoon. Now (months later) we still to select the photos for our album - it is difficult as we never expected to have so many great pictures to pick from! Thank you so much David!
Unbelievably amazing photographer, captured the most amazing moments. My partner is not the best in front of the camera but made us feel so comfortable and the pictures were just incredible so pleased with them. Use David Bostock he is the best!
David is just amazing, we really took our time choosing the correct photographer. It was important to us that we captured the right feel of our big day and David’s previous works and artistic direction was perfect for what we wanted. The number of awards he has are just mind blowing. We definitely made the right choice.
Jake Benson Clarke
David was wonderful right from the start, as soon as we met him we knew we wanted him to be our wedding photographer. Him and Helen were brilliant and answered all our questioned. We did a pre wedding shoot which was great, it made us really comfortable in front of the camera and we got some lovely photos. On our wedding day David worked so hard and we now have so many wonderful photos, now we have the difficult job of choosing which ones to have in our book. We would not hesitate in recommending David or using him for any other events. Thank you so much David
Can’t speak highly enough of David and also Helen. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, everything went as well as could have hoped and it was great to have a photographer at hand with such experience and expertise, which was best demonstrated with the quality of the photos captured on the day. Looking forward to completing the journey by piecing together our album... thanks David for the memories captured
Choosing David was so easy for me as you can just see by his work that he puts so much effort into each couple and getting the best out of their pictures. He also shot at our wedding venue regularly so i completely trusted that he knew all the good spots to shoot in! On the day he was so kind and made me feel at ease in every picture. Our collection of photos is so incredible and captures the moments we will cherish forever. I would absolutely recommend David to anyone looking for a high quality and experienced photographer!
David's expertise and professionalism go without saying, but there are some qualities that, in our view, set him apart from other photographers that we have had contact with in the past. The most important are, firstly, his dedication to achieving the best result possible for the bride and groom. He puts his heart and soul into his work. It's not just a job. He spent hours and hours with us on the day.My husband has a lovely photo of David, flat on his front on the damp grass at Hedsor house, so that he could get the perfect shot. However long that might take. Secondly, for us, David captured perfectly our vision of how we wanted our day to be, the mood, the atmosphere, the ambience. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, David's photos really do reflect our two very different personalities. We decided to have a pre-wedding shoot, and I would highly recommend that, because it allowed us to get to know one other a little, to relax in one another's company and for David to get a sense of our characters. The results of all of these are photographs that are simply stunning, that make us all look like film stars, that we will treasure for years to come. Thank you so much, David.
I would recommend David to anyone looking for an excellent photographer, he was friendly, professional and really put us both at ease. Our final images are amazing, we couldn’t be happier with David’s service or our photographs.
David's enthusiasm for his work shone through from the moment we contacted him to the moment we received our photos! Taking our couple's photographs was so much fun on the day and we also absolutely love the photos of the natural moments, including all of our emotions in the ceremony. The photos are beautiful! We would definitely recommend David for your wedding photographs!
David was great. He made us both feel really at ease, and we are really pleased with the final products
David stood out above all of the photographers we met because of the passion that he has for his work. He was able to tell the story behind many of his pictures and the photographs speak for themselves. He is friendly and gave us so many hints and tips and has a wealth of knowledge regarding his art. He put us at ease and all of our guests feb back how lovely he is but how unobtrusive... We have a friend who hates to have her photograph taken and he was able to get some lovely shots for us. And if that wasn’t enough the presentation of the photographs and albums are amazing we have lasting memories that are second to none
When it came to booking a photographer for our wedding, I didn't have to look around. I have worked with David for over seven years and know that his work is always top class and he never disappoints his clients. He is professional, approachable and genuinely privaledge to shoot your wedding. He will ensure he gets you the best images even if that means crouching in a bed of stinging nettles! Yes that really happened, knowingly. Thank you David
David was briliant. He made us feel at ease! we were very happy with the final pictures which were very natural!
David is a fantastic photographer. He made us feel at ease on both our pre wedding shoot and our wedding day. We received our link yesterday for our photos and we are amazed, the moments that have been captured are truly something special and photos we will cherish forever.
David is a fantastic photographer with many years experience, he captured our day perfectly and really brought out our personalities. One of the best decisions we made was hiring David and now our memories will live on forever through the album he's created for us.
We couldn't be happier that we chose David to capture our special day. He made us and our guests feel totally at ease. He has an eye for capturing special moments that otherwise would have been missed but are now treasured memories. An absolutely superb photographer.
Andrew and Sarah Souter
Not only did David capture the most beautiful images of our day, he has made the entire process from our first meeting, through to planning our wedding album feel very special and completely stress free. We cannot recommend him enough! Brilliant!
We are super happy with our pre-wedding photos (which were amazing beyond our expectations) and equally with our wedding photos which we got last week just before Christmas (which David pulled out the stops to get to us for Christmas): the photos have absolutely, brilliantly captured the story and events of our wedding day perfectly. Initially we were undecided from a list of recommended suppliers from our wedding venue who to choose, but on meeting David we decided to go with him not only for his amazing work but also from a chemistry/personality fit as I wanted someone that I connected with to have around in my dressing room for those all important getting ready photo's etc. David was really fun to have around for our wedding day, it was more like having a friend taking the photos whilst at the same time being the true professional he seamlessly blended into the background/scene to capture some great informal pictures of us and our guests. Highly recommended, you can't go wrong if you book David. Stephanie & Eddie, Caswell House, 26th Nov 2016
A brilliant and professional photographer capturing magical moments you didn't even know you'd had! Would fully recommend this photographer.
Choosing a photographer was one of the most difficult decisions because they accompany your through your whole wedding day. We are so fortunate that David could photograph our wedding day. His work captured the essence of our wedding day beautifully, he was also very professional to have around, very discrete and understanding of what we wanted.
David is an exceptional photographer, who really managed to shoot amazing pictures of our wedding. He is so friendly, yet so discreet during the wedding. Would strongly recommend!
David was amazing on the day and I'm in love with every single photo he shot. I'm struggling to choose my favourites!!! Thank you for capturing every moment and the love that surrounded everyone on our special day.
David is a nice man, very organised and uses new technology effectively. Our photos were fantastic and were returned to us just a few weeks after the wedding. He helped us all along the way.
David takes great and amazing photos that truly captures one's special day. From the very beginning, David was very professional, he listened and understood what we wanted, also contributing with great ideas from his years of experence. We went for the Zanzibar photographic package for our wedding, truly worth it! Our Pre-Wedding photos and Wedding photos were absolutely stunning! David caputed every story of the day, blending in nicely, which was very important to us. Our Wedding Album was designed and finished beautifully - an amazing compilation of our beautiful day. He offers great service from start to finish. My husband and I were truly happy and impressed with the whole service and would highly recommend David. We love our Queensbury Wedding Album - truly amazing and well worth it!!!
Not only can David take stunning images, he is a thoroughly great guy. From the moment we appointed him he was very professional and put everyone at ease. He blended into the wedding day capturing some amazing photos and treated everyone with a huge amount of respect. Highly recommend.
David was relaxed, friendly and professional throughout the entire day. He made me feel at ease from the first moment of meeting him and was always prompt with emails, call backs and sending our items to us. He produced a beautiful mixture of photos of our special day and we are so grateful to him for his wonderful service. Cannot speak highly enough of him.

Made the bride feel very special, comfortable and not self conscious. As an older bride this was important. From appointing David as wedding photographer he was there at all times to answer any questions and reassurance the bride needed however big or small.
Lesley McBride - Awards vote
David was very professional in all that he did for us, making it all a very smooth and stress-free experience. On the actual day of our wedding he was relaxed (unlike us!) and was almost invisible going about his craft. We were so excited to see our photos online and couldn't wait to see our personal collection. The standards David Bostock achieved were truly outstanding and we have such a wonderful collection of pictures to reflect on for a lifetime. An amazing moment in our lives caught forever by David. We were delighted with all aspects of David's work and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David to anybody - he will not disappoint.

David firstly is a really nice guy, he was discreet and managed to capture every moment, we were delighted with his service and would highly recommend him.
Leanne & James Annis - Awards vote
David provides a fabulous, friendly, professional - rather beautiful service! He gently and easily guided us through the arrangements, preparations, service on the day and after-wedding finishing touches at all times conscious of the uniqueness of your event. David's photographs are impressive but his manner and understated handling of his role is equally important. I have only high praise for David's work.
Stephanie Hilder - Awards vote
I chose David Bostock photography for my wedding in November 2015 because of his exceptional good value and service. He made us feel very at ease from the very beginning of our meeting. He tells a beautiful story of our wedding day with his photos. His service is really good value for money esecially his Zanzibar service. On our wedding day, he went over and beyond travelling the distance of over an hour an half between our church service and wedding breakfast venue in order to capture the pictures at both events. In addition, we find his photo Album service to be exceptionally good value and a must have to show off the beautiful wedding photographs taken by David of our Day.
Abi - Awards vote
He got all the perfect shots, was unobtrusive and easy to work with. The process through to album and photo receipt was faultless and the finished product is beautiful. No mistakes,no hassle. Attentive service at its best.

David being a true professional was a joy to work with before and during our special day. His photographs captured the day from start to finish perfectly, with stunning and beautiful photographs giving us a lifetime memories that we will treasure always. The quality of the images is amazing and they are truly priceless. Thank you very much.

David was a wonderful photographer, he captured our special day perfectly! He was friendly, professional and eased any nerves we had.. We would highly recommend him
Anna bailey - Awards nomination
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was having David as our photographer. He has produced the most amazing pictures of our day that we can cherish forever. At every part of the process David has been more than helpful offering expert advice and making us feel very comfortable around the camera. His passion for photography is infectious and his attention to detail is second to none. We would highly recommend David Bostock!
Simply stunning! We saw David's work for the first time at a wedding show and fell in love with his work straightaway! Couldn't have wished for a better photographer! One of the easiest decisions to make during the whole wedding planning process! Love love love our wedding pictures beautiful and natural which is what we wanted! Would highly recommend David for anyone's wedding.
David worked on 3 events for me, my mehndi night, my nikah and my civil ceremony. I am speechless at the shots he took for all 3 events. Doing an indian wedding is not easy but he truly captured all the important parts. I have had the honour of getting to know David and can't thank him enough for not only his professionalism but his kindness, the best person to be around when you are a Bride. He made smiling in front of the camera easy because I knew he was behind it smiling back at me. We can't thank you enough for helping us create magic, these pictures we will forever cherish. You didn't just take pictures you told us a story of how you saw the days from your eyes. We appreciate you going above and beyond on all 3 days. We are so happy we chose David xxx
We are so happy that we chose David to take our wedding photographs. We instantly liked him and knew he would make us feel at ease. As soon as we saw his stunning sample albums we knew he was the one. David is a true professional and we are over the moon with how stunning our photographs turned out! We had a lot of fun with him on the pre-shoot, which is such good practice for the wedding. Then on the day itself David remained calm when the schedule got very tight and dashed around to get all the desired shots. He is patient and fun to have around, with an incredibly creative eye which catches special moments. We couldn't recommend him enough and are now enjoying putting the album together with him. Wedding photos mean so much and we will really treasure the memories that he captured so beautifully.
Excellent service from start to finish, David was very thorough and helpful throughout and on the day with an excellent set of photos and album that we love.
David is a great photographer to have at your wedding! He not only takes stunning and professional photos, he also has a calm and great personality to have on your very special day - a very important part to your wedding day as you spent most of your time with your photographer. His talent surpasses!
David went over and above what is expected of a photographer before, during and after our wedding day in the making of our beautiful album. His photos have delighted friends and family across the world as they have captured the bright, luminous joy of the most important day of our lives. Thank you David!
David listened to our ideas and expectations, he provided the most encouraging and supportive framework for being prepared. On the day he was invisible but always making sure you look your best! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as he exceeded our expectations.
David Bostock Photography was highly professional and efficient throughout the preparation towards the event and during the event and we were very happy with the end result that David produced. We were so impressed we have already hired him for another event. We highly recommend David's services.
David was with my wife from 10am and left at 10pm once all the dancing made photos rather a preecarious proposition. Throughout the day he captured every aspect of the wedding without being barely noticeable. As a result David's photos are not only superb but also very natural and unintrusive. We could not have been happier with the results.
David's photographs of our day and our pre-wedding session were magical. I have never been more delighted with anything (except perhaps my dress form the marvelous team at ES Beaconsfield). I remember the moment we opened the first link while we were on honeymoon. David was the ultimate professional and put us at ease through the whole day. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any future bride. His pictures were original and interesting yet our traditional group/ family pictures were exactly as we wanted and painless! Thanks David.
David is extremely professional and made the entire photographic process from Pre Wedding To Post Wedding a Joy. On the big day, David was fantastic from start to finish. He even managed to find Shaun in a pub, prior to heading for the Church. The post Wedding Album is amazing and we cannot recommend him enough. His Photos are our memories of the big day.
David was a very professional photographer, with the ability to not only take fantastic professional photos, such as the bridal party, and groomsmans. However the reason we chose him was for his ability to take great natural photos of everyone. The pre wedding shoot was relaxed and informal, and David managed to take some great photos. On the Wedding Day David organised everyone perfectly and was able to do this even under very tight time constraints. Also when choosing the album package and photos David was very helpful, changing the configuration of the album layout, but also changing photos from colour to black and white. 10/10 from the Weston Wedding at Eynsham Hall 03/08/2012
David was incredibly professional and calming!we Had great fun shooting with David on our wedding day and would highly recommend his services.
The pre-wedding photo shoot was fantastic as not only did it relax us for the wedding day photos, but we have a lovely set of some of our favourite photos aas a result.
We absolutely loved working with David! I was living in the States at the time, and my husband was studying for his exams, so all my communication and planning with David was via the phone and email. While it sounds like a hectic process, David made is easy and enjoyable! He was extremely responsive, friendly, and helpful, and made sure that we still got to meet and have our pre-wedding photo shoot regardless of the fact that I only moved to England a few days before the wedding! The pre-wedding photo shoot was a blast! He made us feel comfortable, and really captured us in the moment! He was thorough in asking and identifying what we wanted to capture on our wedding day, and immediately put us at ease, knowing that everything would be taken care of! The wedding day was wonderful - and he did a remarkable job with both candid and group shots. He brought a unique perspective to our wedding, and created fantastic photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives! His print outs were GORGEOUS and of wonderful quality, and we couldn't have been happier with any other photographer. Definitely a great choice!
As soon as I started my wedding planning I knew that I was looking for a particular style of photography with a contemporary, funky, high end feel to it. I hated the stiff, wooden traditional photography that you often associate with wedding photography so knew that I needed somebody with a quirky, artistic eye. I found David via a Google search and knew immediately that he was the man for me! When I met David he completely understood my vision and his gallery blew me away. I had complete trust in him from that initial meeting. On the day David was charming, professional and discreet. We cannot thank David enough for providing us with the most beautiful memories and cannot recommend him highly enough. Absolutely fantastic.
David is absolutely fantastic! From the very moment my husband and I met him at our initial consultation we felt at ease. He did a brilliant pre wedding photo shoot for us, which made us both feel really comfortable being photographed. David made us both feel relaxed on our wedding day and took the most beautiful photographs. I can't recommend him highly enough, he is amazing!
David photographed our wedding in May. We found the pre-wedding shoot at the venue really useful as it meant we all got to know each other and feel comfortable as well as walking through some ideas for photos on the day. At first we felt pretty awkward in front of the camera but David was calm and relaxed which really helped to put us at ease. David is friendly and professional. Our guests said they were impressed with how he managed to be present but not intrusive on the day. We love the fact our photos capture the beauty of our location and the emotion of the day.
James & Zoe
We have just received the images from our wedding from David and are thrilled with them. They capture the day so well. Importantly for us, David was great to work with before, during and after the wedding. He made everyone feel at ease and was a great guy to have around with an obvious passion for his work. I would highly recommend him.
David photographed our wedding in May. From the moment we met David we felt very relaxed, he completely understood what we wanted from our day. Our guests commented on how lovely and informal he was, he never felt intrusive. We now have hundreds of beautiful photos that perfectly captured our day. Choosing the photos you want for your album is the hardest part!
From the first meeting with David we knew he was different to the other photographers we'd met with. His professionalism coupled with a fab portfolio and genuine excitement about our wedding convinced us he was the right photographer for our wedding. He didn't disappoint either, we have a fab set of photos of our day and have struggled to pick which ones to put in the album. The whole service has been professional and extremely efficient and we have no doubt the final album will also be fantastic. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend him
Clare & Andy
David's photographs were amazing, he portrayed the story of our day perfectly from start to finish. Right from the outset, he made us feel extremely relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. His reportage style of photography is incredible - he managed to capture all those little moments that we missed on the day - and his unobtrusive manner means you hardly notice he is there. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David as THE photographer for your wedding day.
Claire and Jonny Simon
David was absolutely fantastic from start to finish and we can not recommend him highly enough
James & Hannah
David really impressed us from the first moment we met him. I'm sure like many people, we aren't used to posing for professional photos, so we were a little apprehensive about the process and felt it might feel a bit embarrassing. It didn't. David prepares extensively, has numerous options and backup plans, communicates exactly what he's after and most of all makes the process genuinely fun. Couple this with an exceptional technical ability with the camera and you have all the constituent parts for stunning photo's that capture the environment and joy of the day. Indeed, to focus on one moment that really stood out for us: David captured all 120 guests in one group shot indoors. Light came from 2 chandeliers and a fire, so hardly ideal! Yet... the image is stunning. Pin sharp, beautifully composed and really captures the mood of the day. Behind this though, is the little things that make David stand out. David didn't 'manage' or 'instruct' our guests. He was incredibly jovial and created a sense of occasion around the image, where everybody wanted to help and get it perfect. Also he didn't take some images, realise the lighting was off and fix in post production. He had prepared for this shot and had 5 flashes organised around the room to add light and highlight the photo in all the right places. Of all the photographers we met, David was by some margin the most talented and professional. David seemed as excited about the wedding as we were and this really came through on the day. We simply can't recommend him enough...
Alice & Allan
David has given us exactly the pictures we were after of our wedding day. Intimate pictures that make you feel like you're seeing the day from the eyes of one of the guests rather than staid standard shots with no character or vibrancy. David himself is very jovial and his confidence in his art puts you at ease immediately. We would recommend at least going to visit him - for us, we both knew after 5 minutes that he would be perfect. Neither of us enjoys having our picture taken, but after we had been for our pre-wedding shoot with David, this was one aspect of our wedding that we were no longer worried about. On the day, David was the consummate professional and somehow got the absolute best out of our lovely surroundings despite somewhat inclement weather. As any couple planning their wedding has no doubt found out very quickly, it is hard work wading through many distinctly average suppliers who think they can get away with charging similar amounts to those of far superior quality. However, we can assure you that David is definitely in the latter category. You have to place a particular trust in your wedding photographer and doing so with David took a huge weight off our mind.
Geoff & Ritah
The whole experience of working with David from start to finish has been absolutely fantastic. From the pre-wedding shoot where we were put totally at ease through to the big day itself. The final pictures themselves are absolutely amazing, exactly what we wanted - stylish, subtle and stunning! They really tell the story of our day through special moments and genuine emotions. Couldn't be happier :)
Paul & Dawn
Great engagement photoshoot with David - surprised me how much we could fit in a few hours! David, with his experience, knows where to take the best shots and he's always looking for interesting angles, never missing an opportunity! Most importantly, especially for those from overseas, thank you for relentlessly sending us the photos disc at the end of it all even when the postman got it wrong!
What can we say? We are beyond thrilled with our wedding photos! David has truly captured our day to perfection and we couldn't be happier. We were a little nervous about the photography side of the day as neither of us are very confident in front of the camera, but David put us at ease and we actually loved the whole process! David has so much experience that we felt totally safe in his hands and he listened to what we wanted to get out of the photos and did exactly that. Couldn't recommend him highly enough!
Sarah and Antoni
From the very first meeting we had with David, he took time to get to know us as a couple and was very friendly, approachable, professional and put us both at ease. The words stylish, subtle and stunning are definitely the words that describe his style and his work!
David is a fantastic photographer. His photos are stunning - a mixture of posed shots and more relaxed candid pictures. David himself is a real professional but with a relaxed attitude and a really friendly approach that made everyone feel relaxed and at ease. We are delighted with our wedding photos and would highly recommend David to anyone.
We had a wonderful time with David doing pre-wedding photoshoot at an Oxford college. David is very professional and efficient in capturing many outstanding photos in very short period of time; his re-touched/edited images are also in superb quality that both my fiancee and myself appreciate a lot. David's stylish, clean, and elegant shoot are probably the best photographer we found in Southeast England after surveying 20+ photographers to help us do the photoshooting. Thanks so much, David!
The most important thing of our wedding was choosing the right professional photographer and I am so happy I have chosen The Bridal Photographer. The photographer is important because only the pictures last for years to come back and enjoy the great day of your life. The pictures were stunning and I think we have exceeded what we were expecting, when I sent the sample photo's which we wanted to take! He is also very efficient and professional. Basically you just have to tell him what kind of pictures you want on your wedding and rest is assured, because David has 20 years of experience with only wedding pictures. He knew exactly what we wanted.
We've had our album for a few weeks now and have shown it off plenty of times over Christmas and I do not get tired of looking at the beautiful photos that David took for us. He and Sian were a pleasure to deal with, the photography was something we never needed to worry about at any point. We generally corresponded by email but if a quick reply was needed we were always able to reach David by phone. On our Wedding day he fitted in so well and was a true professional from beginning to end, the pictures he took were beautiful and really are a wonderful memory of the day. I would not hesitate to recommend.
From our very first meeting with David, he put us both totally at ease. We were really impressed with his relaxed yet professional attitude and the sheer amount of experience that he has. He was always very generous with his time which enabled him to get a sense of what sort of people we are and what we were actually looking for in our wedding photographs. On the day of our wedding, David arrived at the house in order to photograph myself, bridesmaid, hair getting done etc, and what was so lovely was that although he'd never been to the house before, he just got on with it, blended in and 'did his thing' in a professional yet chilled manner ensuring that everyone felt comfortable. Throughout our service and reception, once again David was 'invisible' whilst capturing such wonderful shots. We are absolutely over the moon with our completed album and have David to thank for creating the perfect story-book of our perfect day!
Claire and Joe
David was the photographer at our winter wedding and he has done an amazing job. We love the result. Especially the pre-wedding shoot at our wedding location has helped us a lot to get to know David and it allowed us to convey what were looking and hoping for. In our case we did not like too many staged pictures. We like action and lots of play with depth and in and out of focus, which is exactly what he has managed to do! The daylight on a winter wedding is extremely limited. Therefore we had to rush. Despite this, David stayed calm which had the right effect on us! We would highly recommend him!
Helen & Daniel
We are both the types that shy away from the camera! We also had very clear ideas of the type of photos we wanted and more importantly didn't want for our wedding. We met a few photographers before David, but felt very comfortable and at ease when we met David from the offset. We liked his work but also liked how organised and professional he was. We also liked the idea of having a Pre wedding shoot before the wedding just to get used to being in front of the camera and spend more time hanging out with David. We were so happy with our Pre wedding shoot photos, and the experience of having our photos taken that it made us so much more confident on the day. David was very discreet and unobtrusive on the day and has captured some great photos - we've had lots of compliments from friends and family. Thank you, David!
Kirsty and Paul
We were referred to David by other reportage photographers and were very lucky indeed to find him. We were marrying a long way from his usual haunts, but he still made time for the pre-wedding shoot on location. David was more than happy to be as subtle as possible and we hardly noticed him all day. Quick and insightful, we have some fantastic shots and now have the tough task of selecting firstly the right shots and then the right album. We feel relieved that David will be helping us do that!
We didn't want the standard formal wedding photo's which don't look natural or relaxed, we wanted a story book of our day,in stylish,unique and beautifully captured moments – which is exactly what we got! David is great at making you feel at ease and the pre-wedding shoot is a great way of getting to know each other and getting used to the camera. On the big day itself, we hardly noticed he was there as he quietly,unobtrusively,professionally and efficiently photographed our day. We are so happy with our photographs and treasure our album - once we'd finally decided which ones to include! We would not hesitate in recommending, The Bridal Photographer, for your wedding photos.
Graham & Wendy - 19 May 2012
Both Georgina and I are not particularly comfortable in front of the camera but after meeting David and having a pre-wedding shoot we were much more at ease and confident come the big day. On the wedding day itself David managed to blend patience, anonymity and assertiveness in perfect measure. The results are a set of photographs that will always remind us of our special wedding day. Thank you to David. Dom & George.
We didn't want the standard formal wedding photo's which don't look natural or relaxed. Instead we wanted a more journalistic approach, which would tell the story of the day. David was a perfect choice for this, the moments that he captured throughout the day were great, and gave us an insight in to the little things that we missed, as our day flew by! David is great at making you feel at ease and getting the best out of the camera! The only downside is that it is almost impossible to choose our favourite photo's for the final album because they are all so amazing!! we would not hesitate in recommending him!
Jim & Melanie
We chose David as our photographer after he did a fantastic job at my sister's wedding in 2010. We were not disappointed! We've just got our photos back from our wedding in April 2012 and we are really delighted with them. David has such a knack for catching the little moments, the unseen little stories of our day. When you go through them afterwards it's like reliving the day and seeing all the things you inevitably miss as a bride and groom. I found myself grinning like a loon! His photos are gorgeous, with a wonderful mix of posed and unposed shots, colour and black and white. He's also really discreet as a photographer, just blending in with the guests and being completely unobtrusive, yet missing nothing! I know we are going to have fun choosing the shots for our album, he has really helped us to produce a beautiful set of photo memories to treasure. We would thoroughly recommend David to any bride and groom looking for beautiful, natural and high class wedding photography.
Lisa and Rich
David photographed our wedding and sons christening in December. We met him before hand for a pre wedding shoot and instantly felt at ease with him. The shots he took were fantastic and we loved them. On the day he was just as great and took over 400 pictures and i can honestly say that there were only 3 I didn't like of me!!!! Which like most women I normally hate pictures of myself. We now have the most amazing wedding album to cherish forever. If you want an album with a difference David is the man.
Kelly and Rino
We were impressed with David from day one; we had contacted so many photographers regarding our wedding and David was the first one to call us, even though we live abroad and he was calling long distance. David's service is so personal - we loved the way he wanted to get to know us and what we wanted from our wedding day. He then worked around that, rather than telling us what he normally did and what he would be doing at our wedding. David made us and our family and friends feel so at ease with him "papping", which was especially important to us because we were only inviting 40 of our nearest and dearest. We're so pleased we chanced upon David and followed our gut instinct. We now have a beautiful collection of photos from the day. I would not hesitate in recommending him for your special day.
David & Victoria
Our wedding photograhs were a top priority for us as, apart from the rings, there aren't many other things you take away from your magical day to look back on and treasure. David was thankfully recommended to us and we couldn't have made a better choice. He immediately made us feel comfortable and we were very impressed with his work. Neither of us particularly enjoy having our photograph taken but David made it fun and put us at ease immediately. The pre-wedding shoot was such a great idea and prepared us for what we might expect on our big day. The wedding photos were described as 'a work of art' by relatives and we were thrilled with the results. The service we have received from David has been superb and we couldn't have made a better choice. The presentation of his work is very impressive and the quality fantastic. The words he uses to describe his style, 'stylish','subtle' and 'stunning' are spot on!
Karen and Richard
The business of finding a photographer for our wedding was something i was dreading. I am somewhat a perfectionist and so is my husband, I love photo's being taken and my husband hates it!! so i knew we needed to find someone special. David was recommended to us by our venue along with a few others. I immediately clicked with David and knew over the phone that he would be a perfect choice. We arranged our pre wed shoot (i didn't tell my husband there were going to be photo's taken!!) and we both felt so comfortable and my husband actually enjoyed it! the photo's were stunning, just what we were after, not posed but natural David caught our personalities exactly. Then the day of the wedding came, David arrived in my room for the getting ready shots and had to deal with a party of about 20 of my mad friends, he took some great shots and i didn't feel pressured at all. During the wedding, David just blended in, not once did we feel pressurised and if he did need to get us moving quickly to get a shot he did it subtly, and we did not feel pressured or stressed in any way. An amazing day, David captured the love, fun, emotion and laughter which was exactly what i wanted. The pictures and album are amazing. From start to finish David is professional and an outstanding photographer any bride would be lucky to have him as their photographer.
When you're looking for a photographer you meet loads of people, and we immediately felt comfortable with David, it wasn't just about photos, he wanted to understand the day, us, and what we wanted. In the run up, we had a pre wedding shoot, which we were worried could be cheesy, but actually it put us both at ease with david, and to boot we got some lovely non wedding photos. On the day, David did an unbelievable job, he put everyone at ease, had a laugh and importantly we didn't spend all our time doing photos and he enabled us to enjoy the day, as well as have some really great memories of it too with his photo's. He was also very patient with the amateur pap's at the wedding too, which many photographers are not! When we thought about the type of photos we wanted, and look now at the final result, they are just perfect. Generally, we were very pleased with every supplier we chose but especially we were pleased with David, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their big day, you will not be disappointed! Thanks David!
Rich & Lindsay
We would whole-heartedly recommend David as a wedding photographer - to capture the most important moments of the most special day in your life. I first became acquainted with David's photography skills whilst in Ellie Sanderson's bridal boutique in Oxford, where his beautiful portraits of brides are on display. Our first meeting was relaxed and informative; we instantly had a good rapport and his passion for his work shone through. He gave me confidence in his ability and put me at ease throughout. His professional and courteous manner continued from our first meeting to the pre-wedding shoot, the wedding day itself and in the after-service including the production of our portrait photos, thank you cards, and wedding album. He was discreet yet approachable and friendly on the day itself and made us laugh and relax despite all of our nerves. He managed to capture family and friends naturally smiling and laughing and told the tale of our wedding day from start to finish. All of the photos were stunning, in fact, his skills were such that there was far too many to choose from! If you are looking for a professional service where you will feel relaxed, self-assured and thoroughly satisfied, then look no further... thank you David!
Emma and Philip
When searching for our photographer as soon as I saw David’s website I knew he would be perfect! His photography has such style and sophistication that is rare to find and his gallery seemed to ‘capture’ the feelings of the moment in a way that I had not seen from other portfolios. We arranged a meeting with David and he gave us a great opportunity to review all of the options open to us. We were not rushed at all and he made us feel very welcome. David is so amiable and so passionate about what he does you will have full confidence in him, which means one less thing to worry about on the day! David was amazing on the day itself. He arrived as planned and he made me feel relaxed, excited and special, which is exactly what you want before you get married!! Everybody at the wedding found him to be so friendly and not intrusive at all. He was fully in the back ground throughout the day and managed to get some great shots which we had no idea were being taken! David not only captured the emotion, mood and happiness of our day but he contributed to it. If I could say one thing to you it would be to book him....now!! You will not be disappointed and you will have images to cherish forever.
We cannot thank David enough for everything he did before and on the day of our wedding. As soon as we met him, my Husband and I knew that we'd met the person that we wanted to shoot our special day and David captured it perfectly. David is very easy to get on with and totally put us both at ease in front of the camera. After our wedding many of our family and friends commented on how lovely the photographer was!! One of my favourite moments of our wedding day was when David took my Husband and I away from the madness for some photos of the 2 of us. We had so much fun and the 3 of us chatted like old friends. We didnt feel for one second that this is just a job to David. He clearly adores what he does and this shows in his amazing work. Our wedding photographs bring tears to my eyes everytime I look at them. Especially the ones of our children, who are 2 years and 5 months old and are not easy to photograph!!! We cannot rate David highly enough and would most definately recommend him. In fact, we would urge people to chose him as their photographer!
Suzi & James
We really can not recommend David highly enough. Despite neither of us being particularly happy in front of the camera, he managed to make the experience not only relaxed but also highly enjoyable. The photos themselves are fantastic, better than we could have hoped for. David's 'reportage' style was exactly what we were after and he did an amazing job of capturing our special day and all the people that made it so.
Elliot and I wanted our wedding photos to be very natural and informal especially as neither of us particularly like having our photo taken! So from our first meeting with David and looking through his work we both knew we had found our photographer. We both really enjoyed the pre wedding shoot as it allowed us to get to know David and become familiar with the camera before our big day! When our big day finally arrived we were immediately put at ease and not once did we feel under pressure or rushed. David and his assistant were very organised and managed to capture all aspects of the day (from getting ready in the morning to the first dance)perfectly. David is very easy to get on with and is extremely passionate about his work. He has a huge talent for capturing fun, relaxed and elegant pictures. We would highly recommend David.
Kylie and Elliot
We were so pleased that we chose David to be our photographer for our Wedding Day. We knew his style would suit us when he first showed us examples of his work and his relaxed approach to everything was very calming (!!!) in the manic build up to the wedding. We really enjoyed our pre-wedding shoot and it was great to meet up with David again before the day itself. Our wedding day was perfect and every aspect of the day has been picked up in the photos which we will treasure forever. A lot of our guests commented on how professional David was and how he helped create the atmosphere during the group photos. We have so many great photos to chose from and the hardest decision has been which ones to leave out of the album. We would not hesitate in recommending David to anyone as a Wedding photographer and have already recommended David to some of our work colleages who chose him for their wedding day . Thank you David for everything.
Duncan and Louise Reeves
We knew from the early planning stages that the photography was a huge priority for both of us and were dreading making the decision! When we met David Bostock and saw his work, we knew right away this was who we were looking for. Neither of us enjoy being centre of attention, but David was able to make us feel so comfortable that we actually found we really enjoyed it! After the event, we couldn't be happier with the selection and quality of the photographs we have from the day. So many of our guests have commented, not only on what beautiful pictures we have, but on how fantasic our photographer seemed to be- snapping away every moment and yet remaining very discreet and inobtrusive. Our wedding album is truely spectacular, the photos take us right back to the emotions and excitement of the day every time we open it. We simply couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer!
We are thrilled when David agreed to photograph our Wedding. From our first initial meeting, We were confident that he would be the man for the job. We weren't interested in hundreds of formal shots, and we got exactly what we asked for. Fun, Relaxed, Gorgeous photos. He is ultra professional and discreet and has great attention to detail. We are so delighted with our final album and we can't stop looking at the photo's. He captured our wedding perfectly. Thank You David, Claire & Rob
I just don't know what to say - the images are absolutely stunning!!! It's been such a pleasure to look through them - they perfectly capture the mood, colour and vibrancy of the day. We're so pleased with them and our family who have seen the pictures so far, have said exactly the same thing - they are beautiful photographs, that really reflect the venue and the feel of our wedding. The portraits are also breathtaking, they are the perfect mementoes for us and our guests. David comes highly recommneded!!
Meera & Chris
We would recommend David to anyone looking for the perfect wedding photographer. He did the most fantastic job, both on the day and producing the most beautiful album, which we will treasure forever. David's service lived up to our high expectations and we can honestly say that we have no regrets about our choice of photographer.
Both Neil and I are not keen to have our photos taken and so having a photographer we were comfortable with was important. From our first meeting with David we knew that he was going to be the photographer we were looking for. During our first meeting we got on well with him and his photos were just what we were looking for. He managed to make us both feel comfortable during both the pre-wedding shoot and actually on the day. Many of our guests commented on how good the photographer was, how they hardly noticed he was there taking photos and how he seemed to be able to organise group photos quickly. The best part was when David took just Neil and I off for a few minutes to have some photos of just the two of us. It gave us some time together and talk about the day. The photos are fantastic and the 'reportage' style resulted in wonderful, relaxed pictures of all our friends and family. We would recommend David to anyone as he did such an amazing job of capturing our special day and all the people who shared it with us.
Neil and Victoria
David did a fantastic job on our wedding photography. We absolutely love the gorgeous Queensbury album he designed for us - it really tells the story of our day and the images are better than we could have hoped for. David and his assistant were fantastic on the day and really helped put everyone at ease. The chance to have an engagement photo shoot a couple of months before the wedding also helped as we knew what to expect on the day. We have had so many positive comments about our photos we wouldn't hesitate to recommend David.
Daniel & Julie
After searching through many web sites for photographers, we both knew we had found something special when we came to David’s website. His work was clearly outstanding, so we arranged to meet him. During our first meeting with David we did not hesitate to go ahead and book him as our photographer for our wedding. His approach is unique. He is a very amiable, yet professional, person who naturally puts you at ease and his photography is stunning. We enjoyed our pre wedding shoot and it provided a wonderful opportunity to get to know David and feel relaxed in his presence. On our wedding day, David was everything one could hope for from a photographer. He was punctual and fitted in with everything that was happening beforehand, taking the photos as planned, in a discreet way. During the wedding ceremony we were not aware of David taking photos of us and were completely engrossed in our marriage vows. After the ceremony David fitted in amongst our guests and everyone found his approach fun yet unimposing. He worked really hard to capture our wedding from beginning to end and we were hard pressed to pick our photos because there were so many good natural shots. The clarity and quality of the photos is far better than we could have hoped for and David worked painstakingly with us in the design of our album. We have a wonderful marriage and an album which retells the story of our very special wedding day. We are so grateful to David and would highly recommend him to anybody.
Rod & Di
One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was choosing David Bostock. He produced the most beautiful pictures, and captured all the special, key moments of the day so that our photo album tells a wonderful story. He was easy to work with on the day (nothing phased him) and when we had to change venues shortly before the wedding it was no trouble for him. He made us feel very relaxed, bith at the pre-wedding photo shoot and on the day itself. After the wedding your photos are so important for keeping your memories of the day alive, and we always knew the importance of choosing a good photographer. I would not hesiatate to recommend David Bostock to other brides. Sian and Chris Holdridge.
We cannot rate David highly enough for the fantastic job he did, both photographing our wedding and helping to produce the most wonderful album. Previously being a little ‘camera shy’ and usually finding that photos of us looked ‘posed’, we weren’t exactly excited about the prospect of hiring a photographer. That was until we met David and saw the fabulous examples of his work. David had the ability to put us at ease immediately which resulted in beautiful, natural photos being taken. In addition to being a wonderful photographer, David has a relaxed but professional approach and it was a pleasure to have him at our wedding. We would definitely recommend him to any of our friends.
Helen & Jay
From the first meeting with David we knew he was the wedding photographer for us. His professional and relaxed manner meant he was easy to get a long with. The pre-wedding photo shout was a great experience and very useful too as it meant we were all prepared on the big day. When the big day arrived David’s bubbly personality instantly relaxed us. He and his assistant were very organised and responsive to our needs. We didn’t feel rushed or under pressure at any stage of the day. His creative eye captured so many amazing formal and documentary shouts on the day, it was an impossible task to pick the ones for album but luckily David was on hand to help. The proof book was an amazing tool to do this with too and also meat we had a record of all the shouts taken. Our friends and family loved looking at the photos on the website, many commented about how easy the website was to use and how quick the prints they ordered came. David was great at designing the layout of our album and was happy to amend as per our suggestions. Queensbury using amazing high quality fabric, which made the overall appearance and feel all the album very luxurious. I could not recommend David highly enough as a wedding photographer, He was amazing and a definitely went the extra mile for us and was great value for money!
Carly & Paul Johnson
David is an absolutely fantastic photographer and i can’t recommend him highly enough. He put us thoroughly at ease at our pre-wedding shoot and on the day itself. I’m always the first to run away when someone points a camera lens at me but i had no such worries with David. He has a very relaxed and unobtrusive approach – commented on by many guests at our wedding – and we were absolutely delighted with the amazing photographs and albums he produced for us. His images totally captured the magic and happiness of our day.
David comes extremely highly recommended after the fantastic album he has produced for us. He was a pleasure to meet with and met every requirement we were looking for in our photographer. The images we have now got of such an amazing wedding day really do tell the "Story". He was fun to have around but at the same time very professional!! We will certainly be recommending him highly to all our friends!
Kelly & Adrian
Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding album, it really captures our day and brings it back to life. It will be a lasting memory to what we felt was (in the words of our Take That wedding music) The Greatest Day. The new style landscape 'lay flat' Elegance album is amazing and we love how you've managed to spread photos across two pages without any of the image being lost. We hope others can enjoy this new style of album as we, the guinea pigs, think it's very special. From the pre-wedding shoot right through to production of our album and the large frame you have done for us you couldn't have been more helpful and we've got some perfect memories of the day. We wouldn't think twice about recommending you to anyone having a wedding!
My husband was in charge of finding a photographer that could take the style of photographs we wanted. He found David who invitied us to his house to see his portfolio. I know people say you should look around at different photographers, but we knew that his style was perfect for us. The pre-wedding shoot was a good idea and it really helped. Both of us felt nervous and neither of us really likes posing for photographs. The pre-wedding shoot allowed us to see all the bad things we did when posing for a picture. By the time the wedding came around we were relaxed and posing like the pros! On the day of the wedding, David took some amazing photographs of us and our guests. He stayed for 8 hours which meant he even photographed our first dance (I would recommend trying to organise your day to fit this in - we did and it was worth it). Everything was relaxed and we felt very comfortable around David and his assistant. There was so much to capture at our venue, but David managed to get as much of it as possible. We spent quite a lot of money on our photographer, but we were willing to do that as we knew the photos would be one of the only things we got to keep. We love the prints we got and the album is wonderful. Everyone has seen it and loves it. It is something we are proud to show to anyone!
Carrie & Adam Cook
I can not recommend David highly enough. We met with a few wedding photographers before our wedding and David stood out by a mile. David was very helpful in the lead up to the wedding with planing for the shots to be taken and the album choices available to us. On the day itself he was prompt, considerate and non-intrusive. He was very professional in his approach and a lovely guy to work with. The Queensbury album was have received is awesome, and has captured the story of the day. We were very pleased with all aspects of David's work and would happily recommend him to others.
Clarissa and Matt
With photography being a passion of my own finding the perfect person to capture our special day was more important than the dress it self. After much searching we found David Bostock I knew after our email conversations that he was the man for the job and then when we met him at the engagement shoot we knew our day was in the safest of hands, apart from being a genuinly lovely guy, he caught everything on camera, you can see the love and laughter that was experianced by all through the day, he is non intrusive, efficient, proffesional, made people feel at ease when taking posed shots, also took some amazing naturals of people without them knowing. David has an amazing eye and his passion for photography shows in his work. The bridal photographer is a must have for any wedding. Make room for this man in your budgets ladies he is worth every penny!!!!! Thank you David!
After several months of searching for a photographer for our special day, we come across David Bostock. He showed us his amazing portfolio and there was no comparison to anyone else who we had seen. He didn’t disappoint. We went to the venue for a pre-wedding shoot which enabled him to see the best places for the pictures and also for us to get to know him as he would be a big part of our day. David gave us tips for the day such as group photos, signature photos and also lighting issues due to the wedding being in December. He joined Rachael at her parent’s house the morning of the wedding and shot some stunning photos of the bridal party, shoes, rings and the dress. The church photos were also stunning with colours being extremely vibrant. There are also some extra special photos taken with his 'Fish Eye' lens! On arrival at the reception, David took some beautiful photos of the dinning area, the venue itself and then the car we arrived in. We then went on to take some of the most amazing photos we could have ever have hoped for. These were from posed and stylish to relaxed and casual. After the wedding day our photos were on line within 3 weeks and we were able to send the link to our friends and family. Everyone who has seen them has only said great things. David’s customer service has been excellent since the day we met him. He made us feel relaxed and delivered us a wedding album which captured our day perfectly, Overall, David was a pleasure to work with. 5 Stars
Paul & Rachael Rose
We were absolutely delighted with the photos David produced for us on our wedding day - he captured the feeling of the day and bought it back to life for us. David was very relaxed and made the whole experience one to be treasured, he was not imposing in the slightest, but added to the enjoyment of our day. David put in a tremendous amount of effort to ensure that we had the photos we wanted on the day and that he was familiar with our venue. I would highly recommend David to anyone!
Michelle & Luke
When I started planning my wedding, initially I had budged only £500 for my wedding photographer. I wanted natural style reportage photography with a few 'formal' shots in a modern stylish album. I soon found out none of this I could get for £500 and still feel comfortable with what I was getting! David was more expensive, but finding that extra budget was 100% well worth it. David was brilliant in the lead up to the wedding, the engagement shoot was great fun and really gave David and ourselves the chance to feel comfortable in front of the camera before our big day. On the actual wedding day, David and his assistant were non intrusive (I’ve been to other weddings where brides have got really annoyed with being pulled from pillar to post all day, but ours was perfect), and I really liked the fact that David came to the house before hand to see us getting ready, and also stayed for the speeches. The wedding album we have since received is absolutely beautiful. It was so difficult to choose which photos to have though as they were all so lovely – my advice to brides to be is to definitely invest in a great photographer like David......and if budget allows, invest in a few extra pages in your wedding album.....trust me, you’ll want it after as there are so many lovely photos! I would definately recommend David to anyone getting married in the Oxfordshire area, and a lot of my friends have since seen my album who have previous got married, and all of them have said they wished they had invested in a good photographer as none of them have an album or photos like we do!
Wow, what amazing pictures! David captured our day perfectly and caught everything on camera to tell the story of our day from start to finish. From getting ready in the morning, to a few comedy moments like Jon turning an umbrella inside out when it started to rain during the ceremony. He captured the mood of the day really well, and his reportage style meant that he was not intrusive in any way. He's also a lovely guy and it was a true pleasure to have him involved in our big day. I've already recommended him to friends too!

We would both highly recommend David for your special day. An initial meeting at his home put any worries we may have had to rest. He was friendly, helpful and professional, and we knew after that first meeting that we didn't need to see anyone else. The pre wedding shoot on location was an excellent idea as it allowed us to try a range of shots, get used to being photographed (something which I don't particularly like!) and meant that we were so much more comfortable and relaxed on the day itself. David and his assistant were brilliant on our wedding day, and took some beautiful photographs. They were not intrusive in any way but captured the essence and magic of the day seemlessly - all our guests, as us, were so impressed. He stayed the whole day from the bridal party getting ready in the morning, right through to our first dance and street dancers we had in the evening. After the wedding David was very accomodating with any tweaking we may have wanted on our wedding album and communication was excellent. Our wedding album is absolutely stunning and we are very grateful to all David's hard work. Everyone who sees our album is blown away by the quality of the photographs and the design.

We would highly recommend David. Our wedding album is absolutely wonderful. David spent a lot of time with us before the wedding telling us about the albums & advising us. With the time spent with David doing the pre wedding shoot & other meetings by the time the wedding came we felt we knew David & felt very comfortable around him which definitely made it easier on the day. Everyone we have shown the album to has loved the individuality of it. certainly worth every penny. We opted for the Queensbury album and would seriously recommend this album to anyone A true professional, always willing to get the best out of every situation and location.

We chose David to do our photos as love the style we say on his website and were even more impressed when we met with him and he showed us further examples. We also found David extremely easy to get on with, he got what we wanted instantly and I think this was really reflected in the fantastic quality of the photos form our day which perfectly captured the day as we wanted to remember it. Many of guest’s comments on how good David was, he made the atmosphere fun and enjoyable making everyone feel relaxed and yet was un intrusive to the wedding. We were absolutely delighted with the results which surpassed our expectations. The album was beautiful and David added lots of extra touches which were really appreciated. We can’t recommend David highly enough, not only is he a fantastic photographer, but easy to work with a highly likeable which really does help in creating a relaxed and friendly environment on your day. All I can say is thank you David!
David did the most amazing job capturing our special day,his pictures really tell the story. He managed to capture every moment of the day,yet at no point was intrusive or in the way.My husband and I both decided that we didnt want endeless posed photographs which you so often get at weddings. The reportage style of photography that david does is the complete opposite of that,which results in the most natural photographs. David is very creative in finding locations and positions to capture the most beautiful photos,we had many laughs with him along the way aswell. The icing on the cake was collecting our album were the story of our day was laid out in the most fantastic wedding album i have ever seen,we are so happy with Davids service from meeting him to discuss our wedding to collecting the album. I would recommend him to anyone,he really helped make our day what it was...magical.The proof is our pictures! Thank you David

Having David capture our wedding was one of the best things we did. Amazing photos, joined the party brilliantly and captured the shots we wanted without bossing us about. Loads of frienda and family commented on the photos and doing the album was quick and plainless..... I would totally recommned David as your photographer - photos and rings are the things you end up with aftewards - so choose carefully!
I can't recommend David highly enough. His passion for photography is evident and the shots he took of our day, captured in a beautiful Queensbury album are a timeless reminder of our wedding. He's a great guy to work with, friendly, professional and totally non-intrusive. My wife, not confident in front of a camera, was made to feel at ease is so pleased with the pictures he has taken and the reportage style is exactly what we wanted. Totally recommened!
We were extremely happy with our wedding photos. David has really captured some great moments and natural shots. David put a lot of effort into the planning of the day. He is a perfectionist â€“ which is great when it comes to your wedding photos! He really does think of every detail. David was great to have around on the day â€“ he was relaxed and fun. He also did much more coverage than other photographers we looked into. We would definitely recommend David (we already have).

â€œWe hired Dave Bostock as our wedding photographer, and we were extremely impressed with both the quality of his work and his professionalism. His photography fitted in naturally with the various stages of our wedding, resulting in a portfolio of photographs which perfectly captured our memories of key moments, including some that may have otherwise been missed or forgotten, such as the preparation of the bridal party. The posed photographs were beautifully taken and included all of the essential groups, without the need for a lengthy â€˜photo-sessionâ€™, which can be tedious for both the guests and the wedding party. I would not hesitate to recommend Dave Bostock to any of my friends and family for their weddings.â€

' Would we recommend David? Without a doubt! We wanted the photos to be a relaxed, reflection of the day. In the end they were better than we could ever have hoped. David is a true professional, a extremely talented photographer and a really great bloke! Thanks to him we have some fabulous pictures that really capture the atmosphere of the day, and when it comes down to it what more could you want?'
