Darlington based wedding photographer covering Yorkshire and the North East.

All I can say is Chris is very very professional and very friendly and the photos were brilliant thank you

Lynn and Phil married at Gateshead Civic Centre in September 2021.

Chris was very amenable from the start. We booked Chris during lockdown and from our first chat via email to the wedding day Chris delivered everything and more than we expected. We met him once before the big day to look around the venue. He had some ideas but was willing to listen and take on board what we wanted too. We only wanted 20 staged photos and left the rest for Chris to take as he wanted. We ended up with 667 photos telling a story of our wedding day from the beginning to our first dance. We hardly knew Chris was there taking photos. He was unobtrusive but friendly. The guests commented on how friendly he was too. We would highly recommend Chris. Jan & Chris Wiseman

Jan and Chris married at Grays Court Hotel, York, North Yorkshire in September 2021.

I’m a journalist and was recommended to Chris’s work by a colleague who was familiar with his stuff. I actually needed someone to take pictures at our wedding but I wanted a less formal approach and being a journo I also wanted to put work to a fellow ‘news bod’. From the first contact, I knew we had made the right move in getting Chris on board. He was easy to communicate with, knew what we were looking for and after our first meeting with him we knew that he was right for what we wanted. On the day of our wedding he couldn’t do enough for us in terms of making people relaxed for the photos and he certainly captured the essence of our special day. The photos he took were absolutely outstanding and we will have a difficult job choosing those we want to put in an album. We were so impressed with Chris’s work and his professionalism and have no hesitation in recommending him. I hope I can work with him again professionally in the not too distant future too.

Chris provided a first class and highly professional service for our wedding from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. And we were delighted with the beautiful photographs we received shortly afterwards. Highly recommended.

Andy and Frances married in August 2019 at St Augustine's RC Church in Darlington.

We booked Chris to take our wedding photographs in July. Chris listened to our brief of wanting natural photographs that showed the day as it happened. He captured all of our guests and we have some fabulous memories of our perfect day. We would certainly recommend Chris to capture the moments you want to keep forever. Thanks Chris

Ian and Louise married in July 2019 at Judges Hotel near Yarm.

Chris is an excellent photographer, we found him extremely easy to work with. His photographs are of superb quality, we are very happy that we chose him to photograph our wedding as these photos need to last a lifetime. I couldn't recommend Chris enough to anyone!

Rob and Chloe married in June 2019 at the Ramside Hall Hotel, Durham city.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding than Chris. Despite horrendous weather and difficult lighting conditions Chris has produced a perfect set of photos. Both the posed and candid photos are wonderful. Chris was a pleasure to work with - he made us feel at ease and he blended in so well people didn't notice he was there, meaning the photos are so natural. He met us at the venue a month or so before the wedding to do a recce, worked unbelievably hard on the day and we received the photos less than a week after the wedding. Thank you so much Chris!

Peter and Jenny married in December 2018 at Bolton Castle near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.

Chris has just captured our Wedding Day and the photos are simply amazing. Chris was unbelievably professional from start to finish, capturing the full day and providing us with memories that will last a life time. Such a warm, friendly and wonderful man who I would fully recommend.

Alan and Natasha married in December 2018 at Gateshead Civic Centre.

We had an amazing day with Chris. He was so kind and did anything to meet our needs. He had great banter with me and the girls when getting ready and his creative attention to detail was great. We are so glad we took up his suggestion to get pictures taken on the Bridge in Newcastle, the photos are great and it gave us time away alone.

Lauren and Christine married in September 2018 at the County Hotel in Newcastle

Chris covered our wedding at Jesmond Dene House and gave us a perfect mix of candid and ‘official’ photos. On the day he was so professional and he did the best job of finding the greatest shots and made it so easy and enjoyable for us to have our photos taken! We got the photos sent over after only a few days and we are beyond thrilled with the results. We can’t wait to show everyone! Massive thanks to Chris for capturing our special day! 

Sarah and Stephen married in September 2018 at Jesmond Dene House

Chris recently took photos at our wedding and we are absolutely delighted with the results. During the ceremony he has captured some very natural shots and we didn't even notice he was there. Chris guided us during the group shots/bride & groom shots and and ensured we got the best photographs possible. He was the total professional and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Chris, he has given us lasting memories of our special day.

David and Tracy married in June 2018 at Newcastle Civic Centre

Chris shot our Slaley Hall wedding. His professionalism, workrate and dedication were second to none. As a journalist, I work with photographers and Chris is without a doubt one of the best I've met. His eye for a photograph is unmatched. His artistic shots were beautiful, but it was his natural shots perfectly captured everyone's face and the mood of the day, and they made our wedding.
And the biggest compliment I could personally pay to him is that I barely noticed he was there. There was no fussing, but managed to put everyone's minds at ease when he did need to organise group shots. I honestly couldn't be happier with what Chris did. The pictures came back last week and we have not stopped looking at them. Chris truly is a master of his craft, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second in recommending him to anybody - in fact, I already have.

Ian and Lizzie married in October 2017 at Slaley Hall, Northumberland

Chris photographed our wedding at Lumley castle which was a small intimate affair and he totally captured special moments between us and also of our guests. We hardly knew he was there.. He put us all at ease and got on really well with everyone. Could not recommend Chris more highly. Thank you Chris for capturing our day so perfectly.

Iain and Jackie married in August 2017 at Lumley Castle, Chester-le-Street, Co Durham

Chris was brilliant from start to finish. He was unobtrusive on the day but all the photographs with great results.
If you're looking for a professional photographer and a fantastic service Chris is your man.

Steve and Natalia married in August 2017 at Fountains Abbey

Having previously worked with Chris on a professional basis, I already knew just how talented a photographer he was. He was our first and only choice for our wedding. Chris’ photographs really capture the raw emotions, reactions and feelings of the day. Some of my favourite pictures are the reactions of our guests and myself during the speeches  - they are so natural and really do encapsulate the moment. Chris is so professional in his work. He met with us at our venue beforehand and listened to all the things we wanted; he shared his advice and experience with us so we could get the best photographs possible. Many of our guests commented on how polite and professional Chris was; his brilliant sense of humour also added to the exciting ‘getting ready’ atmosphere beforehand and the bridal party loved having him around. Chris was more than happy to take the ‘traditional and formal’ shots we wanted but then took hundreds of natural photos which really do capture the essence of the day. I couldn’t believe how quickly we got our photographs back. Chris personally delivered the pictures to us within days of the wedding and we had hundreds of gorgeous photographs to pick from. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris and we thank him very much! 

Matt and Claire married in August 2016 at Headlam Hall in County Durham

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day. We barely knew he was there from the moment he arrived and he spent the whole day capturing amazing moments between us and our guests that have been wonderful to look back on and remember once the whirlwind had died down! Lots of people commented on how great he was on the day - being completely calm and patiently directing people to get the best posed shots. His pictures really sum up the day as a whole, capturing the fun and emotion, and we were given such a huge selection of fantastic pictures it has been impossible so far to pick out our favourites as we love them all. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris, especially if you like having the relaxed, documentary style pictures of the real memories of the day. He is professional but approachable and friendly and fitted into the day seamlessly. Thanks again Chris!
James and Ashley married in October 2015 at Middleton Lodge, North Yorkshire
We felt that photography was one of the best ways to capture the mood of our big day and help us preserve those great memories forever. Chris helped us do just that. He worked very hard to get a fantastic range of pictures and was professional yet approachable and we trusted him entirely to get the shots we wanted. The results speak for themselves - a beautiful album we'll always be proud of. Thoroughly recommended.
Sam and Kaitlyn married in July 2015 in Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire
We can't thank Chris enough for our beautiful wedding pictures. From getting ready early on the morning to late-night dancing and everything in between, Chris captured everything we wanted him to and so much more. We asked for natural shots and Chris caught every single one of those perfect moments for us to look back on and treasure. We are so lucky and grateful to have so many photos from such a special day. They bring back so many lovely memories and we are so thankful that Chris agreed to be a part of our big day. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris, he is a true professional and we will absolutely be using him again in the future. Thank you Chris.
Jamie and Stacey-Lee married in June 2015 at Lumley Castle, Chester-le-Street, Co Durham
We have both been lucky enough to work with a large number of talented and dedicated photographers during our working lives. Chris was always our number one choice of wedding photographer. The fact that we didn't even consider asking anyone else to do the job is a measure of how highly we think of him. We probably weren't the most demanding wedding clients a photographer has ever had, but we still had high expectations and Chris managed to surpass them, from going through our requirements with us in advance, to the day itself and the straightforward and speedy way the images were supplied afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris. His images really capture the mood of our special day. We have recommended his services at every opportunity since our wedding in late 2013 and will continue to do so.
Andy and Dani married in December 2013 at St Andrew's Church, Haughton-le-Skerne, Darlington
Chris beautifully captured our special day and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending him to other couples looking for photographs which will be treasured for years to come. Not only were we delighted with the final images, but Chris was also great during our wedding day - he managed to get some fantastic candid shots and put us at ease during the more formal photos.
Will and Stacey married in September 2013 at St Agatha's Church near Richmond, North Yorkshire 
Having worked with Chris professionally for almost a decade we were fully aware of his expertise and he was the obvious choice to photograph our wedding day. We wanted our photos to be a candid, natural portrayal of the day and he was able to bring his many years of experience as an award-winning press photographer to bear in fulfilling this brief perfectly. He captured the anticipation, love and excitement of the ceremony and reception in a unique and refreshing manner - making the perfect memento of a very special day.
