 “As the bride, booking Hayley Blackledge Photography is the second greatest decision I have ever made (the 1st was the marriage itself). We have both looked at our photographs a 100 times over and can’t stop. They are so much more wonderful than we ever imagined. We love every single photo from the candid ones to the formals. We have had so many comments from people saying they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen. Every single shot really captured the emotion of the day from the tears, to the laughter; from the joy to the love. Some people who were unable to attend have told us after seeing them they feel like they were actually there as the ‘story’ of the day was expressed in images so beautifully.

It’s quite daunting knowing that you are going to be photographed all day but you were so unobtrusive and invisible. There were some candid pictures taken and I had no idea you were even there. Some guests have said you were like a ninja photographer and managed to get in everywhere seamlessly.
Every single shot will be treasured forever but the wedding video you so beautifully crafted, set to our first dance music is so precious to us. It is like watching the story of our day from beginning to end. Words cannot express how precious this is to us (in fact it’s time to watch again – not seen it for a full 24 hours – lol)

Looking back as a couple these photos help us remember the day, everything goes by so fast we look at these photos and it brings back floods of memories that we didn’t even know we had. I honestly can’t believe how stunning every shot is (especially coming from someone who normally shies away from any camera).

If you are reading this because you are looking for a photographer for your wedding then look no further and book Hayley. I have been to numerous wedding fairs and met more photographers than you can imagine. I never quite liked any of them and then I saw Hayley’s work and just like when I first met my husband I fell in love with them instantly. No words are enough to describe how lucky we are to have found Hayley. All I can say is: look at her images and I guarantee you will have found the perfect photographer to capture your perfect day.  Mr and Mrs Garnett

♥ Hello Hayley!

Firstly can we say a massive thank you for being our wonderful wedding photographer. It seems silly but there were so many signs that you were going to be perfect to capture our day in the our style- Sziget festival, cat lover, Ukebox- it just seemed right.

Wedding photography must be an ever- increasingly difficult job with nearly all guests having a smart phone and taking photos and sharing them instantly with edited filters. For us, your role was to provide the photos that others can’t and ensure that our day was photographed in the way we wanted- young and vibrant.

We have now had chance to watch the lovely slideshow depicting our day. Firstly just the two of us at home and then with both close friends and family on the road and we are increasingly amazed with the quality of the photos and then how you have encapsulated the style of our day. You have caught so many moments and we can’t imagine how hard it is to maintain the attention to detail throughout the whole day.

You are truly a distinctive and artistic photographer and we would unreservedly recommend you to anybody for all manner of events. It is clear that you can adapt your methods and skills to cover formal and informal scenarios.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found you and we have a series of unforgettable photos to cherish and display. You have done much more than just provide images. You deserve every success in the future.

Thank you ever so much once again.

Matt & Sami

 Wow wow wow.
Amazing.
We’re both completely overwhelmed.
Absolutely beautiful photographs.
You captured exactly what we wanted from the day.
Just lost for words.
How on earth are we supposed to pick just a selection of them for the album?!? Haha brilliant.

Thank you so much xxx  Vicky and Phil

Our photographer was the AMAZING Hayley Blackledge. She was so wonderful and dedicated. She was there any time we needed her and was beyond incredible to us both. I would always and any time recommend her to anyone. She is so creative and knew how to make everything we wanted happen. Hannah & Leon

  “Hayley

What can I say, you truly are a fantastic photographer. I cannot thank you enough for capturing our special day in such a magical and beautiful array of emotion. You listened to my every need and more than excelled in my expectations.

The photo slideshow which included all our photos and choosen wedding music speak for themselves, they are sensational and capture the true joy and happiness that was had by all on the day. As all brides and grooms will agree, the  day goes by too quickly however we can now relive every moment again and again thanks to your shear talent and attention to detail.

Choosing a suitable photgrapher is probably one of the most difficult decisions you will have to make in preparation for your wedding. For any new bride and groom (to be) reading this, think no more, Hayley Blackledge is the one! Not only is Hayley a very talented photographer but a genuine lovely person that will fit in with any wedding party.

Once again thank you Hayley , we are so glad we found you and that you agreed to photograph our wedding day.

Lots of Love

Joyce & Ian Porter xxx

You are truly talented and I cannot thank you enough, they are better than what I could have ever even imagined ! I will definitely be highly recommending you!! xxx Adrienne and Michael

 Hayley, I don’t even know where to begin, you captured our day perfectly! We were in tears watching the slide show. We were a nightmare to work with as we were so cold during the formal shots and we just wanted to party but you worked so quickly and against gale force winds to ensure we would have some beautiful photos to treasure for ever. Our wedding was fun and informal and the pictures portray this incredibly! We will never be able to thank you enough for immortalising the happiest and best day of our lives. All our love Lexi & Jon xx

 Hi Hayley. Kev and I couldn’t thank you enough for our amazing wedding pictures. You captured all our special moments on our special day. The slideshow is fantastic.

All our love
Cath & Kev xx

Hi Hayley,

Just looked through our photos and we absolutely love them, they are absolutely amazing and captured the day so well. They have given us great memories and make us want to do the whole day again. You were brilliant the whole day, thank you so much. Ant and Emma

 Hi Hayley

Tina passed your email on, I’m her sister in law. I just wanted to tell you how fantastic the photographs you took of her wedding are. I have seen the showreel, and wow…. It’s crammed with fantastic images.
I love the pictures of Freddie & Willow getting dressed in Mo’s house and with the flower crown on his head!
It’s always nice to get praise for your work, and people don’t say it often enough, so I thought I would.
Great to meet you and I look forward to seeing the finished album if Tina can ever make a final selection!  Best wishes, Jo x

 “We were delighted to have Hayley photograph our wedding. She was supremely helpful, whilst also being laid back and unobtrusive, making everyone feel relaxed. This allowed our guests to enjoy the day, but still allowed the memories to be captured in a wonderful and candid way. The slideshow that Hayley created was a lovely touch, showing the story of the day – and we also have so much choice from the range of photos that she took.” David and Denise

 ‘We were so happy with our wedding photographs, they really captured the magic of the day perfectly. Hayley’s approach was extremely professional throughout the day and the end result was more than we had hoped for. Lots of really high quality images to choose from and the photographers artistic flair really shone through. I would highly recommend Hayley Blackledge Photography.‘  Mr and Mrs Hock

 Hi Hayley
Just wanted to say we are over the moon with the photos they are amazing! Thank you so much!
Love Andy and Becky x

Hi Hayley, The photographs are absolutely amazing. We love them! Thank you so much for doing such a great job! Lisa and Dan x

 ‘Hayley, I just wanted to say that you did a wonderful job photographing Sarah and Jonathon’s wedding. You really captured all the emotions of the day; the nerves, the joy, the laughs, the romance. You’ve given us all a beautiful collection of moments to treasure. I will happily recommend your services to friends.     Lydia Fernadez-Arias

 ‘Dear Hayley

Both Phil and I are really pleased with our wedding photographs and the lovely slide show. You have managed to capture so many special, emotional moments throughout our day and we especially love the pictures of the flower girls and page boys.

Thank you so much – we will highly recommend you to friends and family.’ Love and best wishes   Pat and Phil Woodhouse

 ‘I can also testify to Hayley’s excellent photography skills. She did my band photos a few months ago, she couldn’t have been more accommodating to our needs (including nearly breaking her neck climbing up muddy steep banks after heavy rainfall) she went well above and beyond what I would have expected from a photographer. We got a lot more than we paid for, she’s unbelievably good value and I would highly recommend her services.’  Keri Stanistreet, ‘Willow’s Girl’

  ‘I cannot praise Hayley enough for her professional and patient behaviour on our wedding day or the wonderful images she produced for us. I would urge anyone looking or a wedding photographer to give Hayley a call ASAP’.  Mr and Mrs Hotson

 Hayley, on behalf of me and my husband we would like to thank you so so much for photographing our wedding day,  you really are amazing and captured some amazing photos! They are truly wonderful and we are so happy with them ♥ xxx Mr and Mrs Tyrrell

  ‘Me and Mart are so happy with our wedding photos, we can’t stop looking at them! Thank you Hayley!’  Laura and Martyn Brown

 My son’s baby photos which were taken by the talented Hayley Blackledge arrived today. They were very clear and you can really see every detail in them. I am really happy with the whole selection and cannot wait to frame my favourites. Cheers Hayley, please can I book you for his first birthday?! : ) xx Sarah Swarbrick

 Awww Hayley we LOVE the photos 🙂 Thank you SO much! It was so emotional looking through them and felt like we re lived the whole day. Very clever! x  Mr and Mrs Bush

 Thank you so much for all your hard work for our wedding and family photoshoot. I love all of the photos you took and couldn’t have asked for anything more from you. We really appreciate it. If you need any recommendations be sure to send them our way! I’ll be sure to tell them what a sincere, reliable and talented person you are. I’m sure I’ll see you at some point in the future as I will no doubt be booking you again for future events. Jen, Lee, Dylan and Emily.

♥ Hayley, I can’t thank you enough for our beautiful wedding pictures.
You have done an amazing job and I will definitely be ordering more prints off you and will highly recommend you to friends and family .

Hi Hayley,

Although we received our pen drive yesterday with working opposite shifts we only managed to look at it together today and watch the slideshow.

Thank you so much. We’re absolutely made up with it! Happy tears have been flowing in the family! Mel and Dom

♥ Hi Hayley

The photos are beautiful – I cried a lot watching the slideshow! You have managed to capture the entire feel of the day in those photos – seeing everyone smile, laugh and hug each other has brought back so many lovely memories! I honestly didn’t think I had a picture of me and my niece in Lancashire manor, and the one of me greeting her at the entrance to the room is one of my favourite pictures. Everyone looks brilliant on them, we honestly cannot thank you enough. xx Fiona and Andrew

 Wow Hayley, we just watched the slideshow – it is amazing!! You have captured the emotion of the day perfectly! We love them and can’t thank you enough! x Laura and David
