So a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Wedding Industry Awards as a Regional Finalist, from that I received my couple's feedback and comments.
I've finished getting teary, and a little bit emotional over my glass of fizz, but I cannot thank my couple's enough for their kinds words and feedback. I adore photographing each and every wedding I capture and still can't believe I somehow get to call it my job.
Reading all the words reminds me exactly why I love doing this, and it pushes me to keep working hard and striving to better my work each and everyday. I never want to become complacent, I want to constantly give each and every couple the best that I can on their special day.

“Claire was truly a pleasure to be around. I was really nervous about my photographs as I'm usually quite stiff but Claire made me feel at ease and captured the most beautiful pictures. Her lovely personality, as well as her amazing photography skills make her a perfect choice for a wedding photographer. My guests loved her. Claire, helped make our wedding day the perfect day it was and has taken photographs so beautiful, that will forever remind of the day. Truly amazing.”
Mr + Mrs Earlam
“Claire is an absolute gem - she is enthusiastic and her personality really puts you at ease. She's a ninja wedding photographer - managing to get shots without people realising they were being photographed, which means we have a number of fantastic photos which really captured our day. We are ecstatic with our online gallery - Claire captured our day exactly how we wanted, which was how we had discussed with her in our consultations before the wedding. We would highly recommend Claire!”
Mr + Mrs Vance
“Claire really is excellent at her job, 100% the professional. She's friendly and really does put you at ease and we loved the meet up before the wedding to not only go through the wedding day but her wanting to get to know US a little bit more. Both myself and my husband are not ones who thrive on attention so Claire's approach to the day was perfect, taking in the moment shots, interacting with the guests, we barely noticed her yet have 100's of images, just PERFECT!”
Mr + Mrs Roper
“Perfect doesn't go far enough to describe our photographer Claire Basiuk. From start to end Claire has been both professional and personable. All of our questions were answered promptly, with a questionnaire and Skype chat close to the date to get a clear direction. We even shared a Pinterest board which she used as a cheat sheet on the day. On the day she was completely invisible until we needed direction for photographs or otherwise. The sneak peeks were perfect &the shots speak for themselves”
Mr + Mrs Gardner
“Claire simply did the the most amazing job. Havibg nice photos of our wedding day was really important to us and we trusted Claire from the outset; she simply did a perfect job. She was brilliant in the run up to the day and on our wedding day she had the most lovely presence, and all the guests thought she was great. Now we have hundreds of beautiful photographs to enjoy for the rest of our lives.”
Mr + Mrs Bennett
“Amazing, went above and beyond, as a nervous bride she reassured and calmed me all day as well as taking some amazing photos of the big day, she couldn't do enough for me and I was amazed with how professional she was.”
Mr + Mrs Shakleton
“Claire captured some truly amazing pictures of our big day! From the initial meeting with Claire, she was highly professional and gave us an excellent idea of timings and what to expect on the day! She blended in on the day extremely well and we felt so comfortable having Claire working beside us as we enjoyed our big day!”
Mr + Mrs Smith
“Claire was an amazing photographer. Despite the makeup and hair mishap earlier in the day, she managed to work with us on our vision to produce amazing photos. Claire was kind enough to take the time and effort to edit out unwanted details, to superimpose photos to ensure our wedding photos highlighted us rather than the busy background in an extremely busy location, &it was a pleasure to work with her. Photos were provided in high-resolution, easily accessible in an online album.”
Mr + Mrs Robinson
“We could not have asked for a better photographer! Claire captured every aspect of our day perfectly, she was so talented and took lots of photos. Many of which we didn't even know had been taken which gave us a wonderfully different perspective on our day that we wouldn't have had if it wasn't for Claire's hard work and passion for shooting beautiful photos. Lots of our guests commented on how impressed they were with Claire and we were so excited to share the finished photos with them!”
Mr + Mrs Aldersley
“We wouldn't have had anyone else to capture our wedding for two main reasons. Firstly, Claire's photos are stunning. They are exactly the natural candid shots that we wanted, she captured the style of the day perfectly. Secondly she is amazing to have around. She is friendly, warm and unobtrusive. She asked and listened to our requests including specific family requirements and worked well with everyone on the day. The final photos far exceeded our expectations and we feel so lucky to have them.”
