Testimonials


We could not have hoped for a better wedding photographer than Sarah Critchlow. On our first meeting Sarah really took the time to get to know us and understand what it was we wanted; she explained everything she offered and had a wealth of album examples from previous weddings.
Our engagement shoot was planned very carefully by Sarah, she was able to suggest venues based on our preferences and was even happy to re-arrange the date when the initial shoot turned out to be a rainy day. On our wedding day Sarah was fantastic; she was professional, unobtrusive and extremely friendly. Her sense of humour made us and our guests feel very relaxed. Sarah captured all of the details that we wanted, from our group shot preferences right down to our personalised touches that could have been easily overlooked.
We had only been on Honeymoon a week when Sarah emailed us to let us know we could view our photos through her website which was much quicker than we had expected. The photos were of an extremely high standard showcasing Sarah’s talent, keen eye for detail and creative flair. Once we returned from Honeymoon Sarah immediately posted our USB pen drive with over 900 photos on. We have now chosen the photos for our album and look forward to receiving the finished product. We can’t thank her enough for the fantastic way in which she captured our wedding day and would certainly recommend her to our friends and family.

We can’t praise you enough, your skill, expertise and professionalism came through all the way from our first contact with you through to the engagement shoot and to the big day itself. You prepared us well, asking what kind of photos we liked and on our pre wedding shoot/engagement shot you came over to our venue in Hampshire to find the best places for pics, this put us at ease and gave us some fab pics!
On the day you were organised and put everyone at ease. You were clear with instructions and organised all of our guests and made the group photos quick, easy and smooth – I’ve never known anyone do this as well as you. The photos of David and myself on our own are fantastic and you got every angle and hidden place perfectly right. Our photos from the day are amazing and we couldn’t be happier with them, the only difficulty is now we don’t know how to narrow down our favourites – they are all too good!! The shot of me in front of the gate is by far one of our favourite pictures and is one of the ones I’d love to enlarge for our home. The ad hoc shots of people at the table were great and no one really noticed you were there taking them which made them even more natural. The pictures of the first dance and the dance with my dad were great and meant a lot to us.
I could go on for ever about how fantastic you were, we were so impressed and were so glad we chose you. We’d recommend you over and over again, you will always be a part of our special day as these photos will last a lifetime.
Thank you thank you thank you xx

As a budding wedding photographer, Sarah took me under her wing from the beginning. Already an admirer of her work from a distance, it was a privilege to accompany Sarah to numerous weddings as her assistant. She always made me feel an equal and encouraged me to explore my own style.
In our years together photographing weddings, I’ve witnessed first hand the relaxed, happy way in which Sarah interacts with her clients. No other photographer I’ve met has such a genuine affection towards people and a positive energy (even when things don’t go to plan!) than Sarah. Getting the most out of her subjects is an understatement.
She knows her cameras inside out – I’ve tested her photographic theory countless times with my questions! – but it’s also her spontaneity that gives her images such creativity. You can see the subject’s confidence and comfort with her, whether the image is dramatic or natural. This for me is the uniqueness of Sarah’s style, and why as a friend and mentor, I was so honoured to have her photograph my own wedding.

Sarah Critchlow has been one of our recommended suppliers for 12 years. She is reliable, personable and we have had nothing but positive feedback from our couples about her. The photographer at any wedding always has the difficult job of ensuring that they fulfil all of the couples requirements, but often under considerable time pressure, and with plenty of difficulties with getting all the correct members of the wedding party, in the right photos, while enticing them away from catching up with family and friends. Sarah achieves this with a calm and professional manner. She has a great relationship with many of our key members of staff at the hotel and only ever makes our lives simpler as opposed to more complicated!

You were exactly what we wished for in our wedding photographer and have captured the most beautiful photos of our very special day. Thank you so much for all your attention to detail and amazing eye for capturing the perfect picture! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, every single picture sums up our day. Love Mr & Mrs Lewis xx

Sarah Critchlow couldn’t have provided us with a better service even if she wanted to. We had our big day on March 8th 2014 at Buxted Park Hotel and Sarah helped make our day perfect! After meeting up with Sarah several months before the wedding on a few separate occasions to discuss preparations, make final arrangements and of course for our pre-wedding photo shoot ( to produce a photo in a lovely frame which Sarah put up on the day for our guests to sign) we felt so comfortable around Sarah and absolutely delighted that such a lovely lady would be with us throughout the day. Sarah arrived with us at around 11am, two hours before the wedding to take some getting ready shots of the both of us and other bits and bobs that were happening along the way. Sarah was happy, encouraging and enthusiastic throughout the entire day… An absolute delight, Sarah left us shortly after our first dance … the day after we arrived back from our honeymoon, she emailed us to say our photos were ready and dropped them off to us! The photos are amazing and we are so happy that we chose Sarah as our photographer for the best day of our lives. She was able to capture a variety of images throughout the day ( there were well over 600 photos for us!) There were pictures of things that we missed but were so glad that she captured and seeing the shots of each other getting ready was great! There were a mixture of photos from funny and quirky to absolutely stunning! We are so happy with our memory’s that were captured by Sarah and the way that they are presented in a little box with a key ring and USB which is very modern and beautiful. Thank you Sarah for a wonderful job, would recommend you to anyone, absolutely fantastic!
