Oh my god Iain, they are beautiful. You both went above and beyond and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better.
So many people commented on how impressed they were with you too.
And yes you were lucky as kats dad definately had his eye on your lens!
We can’t thank you enough but we will absolutely recommend you to everyone we know.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I just can’t get over the fabulous pictures you took of Jen and Andy’s wedding. It was a magical day and you have managed to capture the magic so it will live with us forever.
Your ‘London’ evening pictures are fabulous, I’ve never seen pictures like them.
I am delighted that Jennifer and Andy decided to use you for their special day – leading up to the big day I was getting more and more anxious about being photographed, I tend to shy away from the lens but you made all of us (me included) feel very comfortable in front of the camera and the results speak for themselves.

Iain, words simply cannot express how much I appreciate your photos. The day went by so quickly for me, and many of the memories are a blur. In your photos, I can continue to relive my wedding day any time I want. This is truly priceless!
You have captured all the moments and emotions of the day- the nervousness, the happiness, the laughter and jokes…I don’t know how you do it, but you did not miss anything!!! You are undoubtedely, the most talented, passionate and enthusiastic photographer and this is reflected in your work. Just as I was certain that Fu was the one to marry, and that Northbrook was the perfect venue, I knew immediately after meeting you that you would be the one to eternalise the best day of my life!
Thank you for everything- it was a real honour to have you as my photographer!

Clare and Paul
“I cannot recommend Iain enough, I did so much research to make sure we pick the right person to capture every moment of our day and after our first meeting with Iain my mind was already made up by the time the meeting ended.
Iain makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and makes it so exciting. The passion he has shines through in his work and never lets you down in the quality of his work.
Without doubt I will always go back to Iain for any family occasion shoots.
Thank you for the photos couldn’t of asked for more, perfect“

Charlotte and Lee
“We want to say a huge thank you for the amazing photographs you captured of our special day. Iain was fantastic on our wedding day he really captured every moment and emotion. He was professional, friendly and really made me, Stuart and our guests feel at ease.
From our first meeting with Iain, he automatically put our worries at ease and spoke about his relax approach , reassuring us that it was our day and he would be flexible to suit. Sure enough, we got to mingle with our guests throughout the day, concisely and efficiently captured all of the photographs we were looking for ( Thanks to Iain’s very organised approach before the event itself and ended up with a magnificent collection of photographs which beautifully capture our special day. Not only is Iain a professional, he is warm, friendly, artistic and was willing to work to our requests both on the day and in advance. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Iain to anyone who is getting married as his relaxed and professional approach ensured that this was one wedding where the comments we’ve heard about the photographs was how good the process and end product are.
Jocelyn & Stuart“
Jocelyn and Stuart
Iain is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. He spent the whole day making me and Michaela look good (for a change) not only did he capture every moment perfectly, he caught our guests enjoying our day with us.
Never felt forced to do some ridiculous pose, hopefully see you at another wedding in the future.
Thank you again.
“I am so pleased michaela and james found you. Your pictures are amazing, funny, intimate, beautiful and natural we could not have asked for more. You summed the day up beautifully and through your photography we have been reliving the day. You are a wonderfully warm person who blended in with the wedding party and if not for holding a camera would not have realised you were there working, also a thank you to the young man with you. Hope to meet you again…have a couple of more children to get down the aisle. Many thanks Lorraine Abraham (mother of the bride).”
Michaela and James
“Thank you so much for your brilliant skills and giving us some really beautiful photo memories.
A magazine have even asked to use our photo’s in their wedding brochure icon smile Testimonials
Thank again Iain we are over the moon with them.”
Billie and Alex
“Thank you so much for being part of our wedding. We loved having you as our photographer due to your wonderful nature and of course the final product. These photos really capture what the day felt like for Chris and I; relaxed, full of love and laughter and of course in an incredible venue. You made us and our guests feel so happy during the day though many shots have people saying ‘I never noticed them taking this one’ which is a testament to your professionalism. We can’t stop looking through the photos. Thank you again to you and all your colleagues.”
Kat and Chris
“Thank you so much for uploading the images on to your website so promptly after our wedding. Having reviewed all of the images, James & I wanted to express our sincere thanks for the wonderful selection of photos that you’ve provided. You’ve captured our day beautifully – from our portrait shots to the ad hoc photos during the day and the posed group shots – and provided a lasting record of what was a wonderful day for us.
You were a delight to have around on our wedding day & we’ve already provided your details to friends who are planning their weddings, so hope to see you again soon!”
Anjuli and James
Peggy and I would like to put on record our profound thanks for your contribution to our wedding day and the stunning photographs taken by you. Before our wedding, it was difficult for us to visualise the end product, but the collection of photographs, some which were posted on Facebook the day after our wedding, are beyond what we could ever have expected. The photographs contain great memories of our big day which Peggy and I shall cherish forever.
We would have no hesitation in recommending you to all our family and friends..
Peggy and Nigel
Thanks for the email, we’re now back and have had a look at all the pictures and they are amazing, thank you so much.
Look forward to hearing from you and thank you again for taking some amazing pictures. So many people have commented on the ones on Facebook that you put up
Also, my parents were also very impressed with you and I believe they have recommended you to two of their friends who sons or daughters are due to get married so fingers crossed you will get a couple of calls from them at some point.
Lindsey and Alex
“My wife and I began planning our wedding in about April 2012 and by June we were in a position where we had our date booked with the Chapel and with our reception venue and so began looking around for a photographer to capture the events of the day.
Because we had decided to get married in December and in a chapel that had no electricity we were concerned that the lighting level within the chapel would be very low and so looked for a photographer who was equipped to deal with these conditions. Our other main consideration was that we did not want the usual 60 picture album that most wedding photographers offer. Instead we wanted a DVD containing all of the images that were taken throughout the day.
In June we began talking to a few photographers who we had mainly found on the internet. Iain was very quick to respond to my emails and was keen to meet us to discuss our needs in person and so we arranged a time and date where he came to our house. On our first meeting Iain appeared to be very professional and answered all of our questions fully and confidently. We felt comfortable talking to him and decided quite soon after he left the house that we wanted to use him to photograph our wedding day.
Our second meeting with Iain was in November, a couple of weeks before our wedding day. We met him at our chapel and then took him to the reception venue so as to show him both locations and to discuss his and our ideas for pictures. Iain was very excited about the locations that we had chosen and very enthusiastic about the ideas he was having for potential photos. Joanne had been looking on the internet at arty wedding photos and so had several ideas of her own that she wanted Iain to try and capture on the day. Some of Joanne’s ideas where quite unconventional but Iain was very keen to try them out as well as offering his own take on what she was asking. We left the second meeting feeling extremely happy with our choice of photographer and very confident that we were going to get some great pictures.
Our wedding day was on the 7th December 2012 and it was a very wet and windy day. Iain arrived first at our house and began taking pictures with Joanne and her wedding party straight away. During the ceremony Iain remained at the front of the chapel and took some great pictures of both us and our guests. Following the ceremony we decided that it was too cold and windy to ask the guests to stand outside and so Iain came up with some ideas for group shots within the chapel and with Joanne and I alone around the chapel grounds. Iain was very good at adapting his ideas and techniques to fit with the changing weather conditions on the day.
Once we arrived at the reception venue Iain helped us arrange some more group photos within the venue itself, he also came up with some great ideas for staged shots of Joanne and I, some of which involved Iain getting very cold and quite wet. Throughout the day Iain blended in with our guests really well. He was so un-intrusive and friendly that most people didn’t even realise he was there for the most part.
To me Iain is a very professional and very talented photographer. When he wasn’t taking photos he was thinking about interesting photo opportunities and when he had one he would come running over to us, really excited and tell us to follow him. Iain is very passionate and excited about his ideas and about his trade and this really carries through in the images that he produces.
We are both so incredibly happy with our choice to use Iain as our wedding photographer and are simply amazed at some of the beautiful images he produced for us.”
Jo and Danny
Thank you so much for the amazing photos!!! We received them from hotel concierge, and they are just amazing…
My mother is crying again looking at the photos you’ve taken. and all of us (of course including me) are fascinated by the quality of your photos.
I can definitely assure that the best choice in my wedding was asking you to take my wedding photography.
Keiko and Cris
We got back from honeymoon last night and have received the DVD – thank you so much.
Andrew especially was really impressed by how calm and professional you were and made him feel at ease. We also didn’t expect you to bring an assistant. The photos are great and we are so pleased to have them to look back on.
Peppi and Andrew
I just wanted to tell you that I think that the photo’s you took for Emma & Chris’ wedding are FABULOUS!!I’m a friend of her parents and live in Canada so I was unable to be there but you’ve captured something very special in these pictures and I was deeply touched by them.Thank you so much for your great work.
Emma and Chris
The pictures that you took at our wedding are beautiful and we love them. You have captured every single emotion throughout an unforgettable day. We highly recommend you to anyone. It was a big pleasure having you at our wedding as a photographer and as a friend. Thank you very very much.
Dawn and Martin
We have had a look at the proofs and we are delighted with them – thank you.
Carole and David
“Thank you Iain for capturing our day perfectly and providing us with magical memories”.
Lucy and John
We didn’t have chance to meet Iain before our wedding but as soon as we met him we knew we’d made the right choice. Iain put us at ease immediately and soon it was like having a friend taking our wedding pictures.
“On what would always be a nerve wracking day, Iain made us feel comfortable with everything he had planned and made sure to capture the day in the spirit we’d hoped. He was professional, unobtrusive and friendly and of course he took wonderful photos that we’ll treasure forever.
Jo and Stephen
We contacted Iain last year to book him for our wedding, as we had looked at the pictures on his website and knew his style was what we wanted. On the day he was professional, friendly and put everyone at ease…it was like he wasn’t there we felt so comfortable! And the pictures are nothing short of amazing! They are everything we wanted….natural shots of our friends and family, and some really cool pictures on the beach. Everyone has commented on how great they are! We couldn’t be more happy with our pictures, booking Iain was the best thing we did!
Sam and David
I just want to say thank you for everything you did for us on the day and for the excellent memories you have captured on film. Lisa and I were talking just the other day about how we didn’t relax and start to enjoy the day fully until we went off with you and your assistant during dinner. It was genuinely good fun! The wedding we went to this weekend had a right old dragon-lady of a photographer who made them do nearly two hours of group photo’s etc. You could tell by the end that the bride was getting weary and the groom needed a beer. Lisa and I exchanged knowing look: ‘Thank god we went with Iain!’
Lisa and Adam
“Iain was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and he is a true professional. On the day he was both friendly and discreet and as a result we have an amazing collection of photographs for us to treasure and remember our special day. Iain understood exactly what we wanted from our photographs and his calm and friendly manor put our guests at ease and enabled him to get fantastic shots of all of our guests enjoying the day.There is a consistently high level of creativity and finish throughout the photographs and we cannot recommend him enough. Iain was exceptionally quick to get the photographs up onto his website for us to view just days after our wedding which was fantastic and the DVD was delivered as soon as we were back from our honeymoon. It was great to have such beautiful reminders of our day so quickly and we have had countless comments from friends and family about the quality of the images.”
Steve and Becky
Thank you for the amazing photos - we are extremely happy with them, you made us feel very relaxed on the day. I have said this to you before, but your work is the best I have seen,
I will certainly be recommending you,
Anne-Marie & Brett
Anne-Marie and Brett
Iain as our wedding photographer was the best choice we’ve ever made. He is an amazing guy to deal with, very professional, very dedicated to his job. We decided to engage Iain on our very last moment to our wedding day as he was the most affordable in price, and very flexible about the time. Despite, contacting him so late, he accepted the job, and soon after the chat over the phone, he email every single detail about his work to us. He is very straight forward.
It was such a short notice, that we did not had enough time to meet, discuss or rehearse but we can truly say he is the man for the job, very experienced, he knew what we wanted. Amazingly the photographs he delivered were fantastic, very natural with joy and emotions. He captured all the beautiful moments and made our wedding day so special and memorable. Most importantly, he was so friendly that he just fitted himself in, and made everyone feel so comfortable around him.
Honestly, we regret for not engaging him for a few more hours. We highly recommend him to anyone. It was a big pleasure having Iain for our wedding, a big thanks to him. We got no more words to express his personality and his job, he is just perfect and genuine.
Thanks a lot Iain.
Julia and Amith
“Iain is a master at what he does – taking beautiful wedding photographs. We booked him for our wedding at Preston Court on August 2nd 2012 and he exceeded our expectations in every way capturing every magic moment of our day with style. He is unassuming and professional on site but most of all fun and easy going. He clearly loves what he does and that shows in both his attitude on the day, and the resulting pictures, which are delivered super fast: ours were waiting for us on return from honeymoon. We recommend Iain unreservedly and will treasure the memories he created for us for a lifetime to come. Thank you!”
Tim and Adel
“We were very lucky to find Iain the very last minute. Iain is a wonderful photographer and very pleasant to work with. When we were looking for our wedding photographer we wanted someone who can catch the beauty of the moment and the natural looks of people. Iain has done a wonderful job in both. His photos recorded the most beautiful and touching moments of our wedding and everyone in the photos look great and very much themselves. When we received the photos it was very difficult to choose only 300 to print out because they all look fantastic. Our family and friends were very impressed by his work as well. Thanks Iain for giving us the best memories of the happiest day of our life so far so we can always go back to that day through your photos.”
Shanshan and Charlie
“Having hunted for some time for our wedding photographer, we were delighted to discover Iain’s website. His photos looked superb, the simple price structure offered better value than other photographers we had considered, and Iain himself was excellent to deal with from the outset. Everything was painless to arrange, and Iain inspired confidence with his knowledge, experience and ideas.
On the day, Iain was professional, friendly and completely accommodating of our requests. He was discreet and unobtrusive, and easily put guests at ease. Needless to say, the end results were just what we had hoped. We have a wonderful selection of family groups, reportage shots and beautiful portraits. The day seemed to pass incredibly quickly at the time, so we are hugely grateful for having a collection of such good quality photos to help relive and remember it. Thank you once again Iain, for providing us with such a lovely memento of our special day.”
David and Ellen
“It was pretty over whelming trying to decide on a photographer for your big day especially if like us you don’t want too many posed pictures but you want a natural reflection of the day.We were delighted with our photos Iain captured exactly what we wanted a sense of joy and emotion on the day by getting natural shots of people laughing, kissing, crying without making anyone feel conscious or awkward that is a talent in itself.The photographers are incredible better than I could have wished for, Iain is a complete professional who will blow you away not only with his photographs but with his true talent.Thank you once again Iain”
Abby and Nathan
“Iain has done a fantastic job on the photographs of our wedding. We found him very easy to talk to about what we wanted and his pricing structure is very straight forward compared to other photographers. He did a brilliant job on the day of getting all the standard family photos as well as managing to capture some wonderful shots of our friends enjoying themselves. Afterwards he prepared our pictures quickly and his website made it simple for us to send the photos around to our guests. Thanks for all of your hard work Iain!
Anna and Andy
“When I was looking for our wedding photographer I came across the Gomes Photography page and was instantly awed by the fantastic photos that were on there. I knew Iain was the photographer for us the style of his photos are truly stunning. Leading up to the day Iain was brilliant, his communication was great and he was such a genuine guy – seemed really excited to work with us. On the day he was brilliant, so professional and not intrusive at all and considering the weather was really dismal he made use of all the surroundings and really captured the day and the guests. I can’t express the gratitude i feel for the stunning photos we have. It really is worth booking Gomes Photography and spending as much as your budget allows because hes worth every single penny”
Emma and Chris
“Iain was very easy going and professional. He put us and our guests at ease and produced wonderful photos of our day. His warm, easy going nature meant that he fitted in to our day perfectly. I love his style of photographs. I much prefer natural pictures where you see your friends and family relaxed and as themselves which he delivered. These pictures also captured the emotion of the day beautifully. We would highly recommend him. A big thank you from Mark and Ness”
Vanessa and Mark
We would like to thank Iain for the wonderful memories he has given us of our wedding day through his beautiful photos. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Iain took the time to meet my husband and I before our wedding day to …discuss what we wanted, and he went above and beyond by attending our rehearsal in order to get an idea of where he could take photos at the church. I cannot tell you how much we appreciated this. By the day of the wedding my family and I felt as though we knew Iain and I was very happy to see him when I turned up at the church. He is just a lovely person to have at any wedding, as well as being a fantastic photographer! Nothing was too much for Iain and I felt reassured by presence and his expertise; I even found myself looking to him to check the timings of the day and that we were running to schedule! Iain is a very committed photographer and went to great lengths to ensure he got the shots he wanted, without putting anyone to any trouble.
After the wedding, Iain put a few of the photos on Facebook so that we had something to look at almost straight away. They were just perfect and we were very excited to see the rest of the photos, which were available around a week after the wedding. We will treasure each and every photo forever, and Iain truly managed to capture everything we felt and saw that day. The photos are imaginative and creative, but at the same time they still feel like ‘us’. From start to finish Iain has been everything we could have wanted in our wedding photographer, and more, and we will never forget the special part he played in our day.
Stephanie and James
“We would like to say a huge Thank You to Iain who, was not only, very professional but very personal. The photos he took were absolutely fantastic. He listened to our needs and delivered exactly what we wanted and more besides. I would highly recommend Iain to any couple looking for a wedding photographer. My only regret was only having him for a few hours, I wish now we had, had him throughtout the entire day and evening.”
Julie and Tim
Beautiful pictures! It was very easy to have Iain as our wedding photographer and we liked him from the beginning. The wedding photographs were one thing we did not have to worry about on the special day because of him. He arrived much before and set up his equipment way before the start of the functions. The pictures were beautiful and many different moments captured. The pricing was clear and straightforward. We would definitely recommend him.
Mili & John
“The pictures in the gallery are amazing,we love them!”
Nadia and Olu
“Thanks again for a fantastic job. Everyone who has seen the photos online has commented how great they are. Jenny and I certainly couldn’t have asked for anything more – they are wonderful.”
