Overwhelmed is an understatement – I still can not believe
that I have won the best classic wedding photographer in the whole of the
southwest in the southwest wedding awards for the third year.
Sitting while the finalists in your category are read out is
a nerve-racking experience knowing that the judges have read all of your couples’
feedback, that they have looked into all your social media platforms and your
Matt and Victoria from Heart southwest read “they were
professional, friendly and fun on the day and the judges were so impressed with
the feedback, professional website and an outstanding mission statement and the
winner for the third……..” I didn’t hear
anything else they were saying as my family and a lot of my friends in the
industry started cheering.
Before I knew it I was up om y feet crying, dancing to vogue
and making my way to the stage. Losing my shoes in the process.
I was lucky enough to make a speech after receiving my
award. I thanked my brides and grooms, my family and friends that only see me
by scheduling an appointment and the businesses that support mw and this is
when I burst into tears.
After my third win I have been asked to be a judge and
sponsor and I accepted so I will not be entering in 2020.
Please read some of the comments that ensured I won
Bruckshaw Photography are so friendly and professional. we are so pleased with your photos and i cried when i saw our album. i cannot stop looking at it, it is so classically beautiful and every time we do it brings the memories of the day flooding back. i was so impressed with how quickly we had our preview to show and how they managed to get our photos and album to us so amazing. we have friends who married a few months before us and they are still waiting for their photos. these girls are amazing.
We booked the orchid package with sarah and she made us laugh from the moment we had our engagement shoot and all during our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she went above and beyond. All our guests kept saying how funny and professional she was. We love our photos so much there isn’t a moment she missed. Perfection.
Wow! Just wow. Bruckshaw photography are amazing. Prior to our wedding we chatted over the phone about what we wanted to achieve, it felt like I knew them straight away, it felt like they just got me and I trusted the completely. They are just lovely and helpful to chat to. On the wedding day itself they engaged with everyone, and felt part of the family. She was amazing with our 5 year old daughter who didn’t always want to join in. They had me and my bridal party in giggles, completely calmed any nerves that came up. my husband Richard – who is shy and was a bit apprehensive about having photos done said they were amazing and he felt very comfortable.
All our guests commented on how cheerful, sweet and funny they were.
Both myself and Richard had such fun having our photos done. I laughed nonstop. The relationship they have together is special and very professional. They are very talented ladies and definitely deserve winning this award.
They are down to earth girls and put everyone at ease.
I’m so happy that they shared our special day and captured all our moments.
They don’t just take photos, they told our story, which we cannot wait to share and re-live.
They are fabulous – they captured the day perfectly!
From meeting Sarah during our first meeting to the end of our wedding day she has been great. Bruckshaw photography although not the cheapest, we felt the package we got was the best value for money, and you could see their passion and committed through the work they have already produced for other couples. communicated with us regularly which made they day go without a hitch. Sarah even came to the church rehearsal to ensure they could get the best possible angles for the photos but also made sure that the vicar was happy they would not be in his way during the service.
They both made us feel at ease, as well as having a giggle with both us and our guests. They stayed professional throughout and we cannot wait to see the end product. Lama and T-Rex thanks for being totally awesome.
We booked bruckshaw photography for our elopement in October based on a recommendation from the hotel we were going to stay in. We arrived in the uk the day before our wedding and sarah came to the hotel to meet us. She was so lovely and professional I knew we were in safe hands. Bruckshaw Photography made having our photographs fun and the 4 of us felt relaxed. At one point my father in law held sarah’s hand and said she had breathed live onto him. On receiving our photos I was moved to tears and cannot stop showing them to our friends.
We couldn’t have asked for better photographers for our crazy wedding at dartmoor Zoo. From the very start of booking they where very accommodating and altered their packages to suit our day and us. The meetings before our day where brilliant and could already see it was going to work well. On the day they made us all feel very at ease and where very much ready to join in the fun of our wet wedding day. Gave brilliant suggestions and even the coat off Sarahs back to try and stop some of the dirt from getting on my dress. Where happy to have leafs and water kicked at them for the photos we wanted to create. They made themselves part of our family for the day and even helped keep some of my family in check and away from the cake table before it was ready. The photos which we have seen already are amazing and everything we could have asked for and so much more. Complete amazing package!!
i don’t no where to start. I really believe without sarah my wedding would not have happened. I booked sarah and from the start we knew she was the photographer for us. She’s so funny, warm and nice. A few months before our date I got the devastating news that our venue had gone and within hours of this hitting the newspaper. Sarah called explaining that she would help with anything I needed, she listened
To me cry, made a list of venues and said she would do everything she could until we found somewhere. Over the next few days sarah called around venues for free dates. Eventually she found us a prefect venue. On the day itself both sarah was amazing. They couldn’t do enough for me and bridesmaids and family. They were so funny and made us relax.
I loved my photos so much and show my
Album off when ever I can. I feel like I have made friends for life and will never be able to say how grateful I am to sarah that she went above and beyond for us.
She’s not just a wedding photographer she become a friend and I hope they win this they deserve to they’re so passionate from start to finish.
Sarah was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. Very professional. And from what I’ve seen so far they have captured some amazing photographs.
I really do hope they win.
What can I say about Sarah? Absolutely amazing! She felt like family and we had known them for years with their personalities. My husband hates photos but they both gave us all the guidance we needed into getting the best photos as possible. Even went above and beyond with get perfect photos when a pink sunset came to light. I would recommend these 100000%. Not have they gave us amazing wedding photos but a brilliant laugh on our day with comfort and ease. Sarah has given a totally different level of stratification. Her commitment for being there for us has been amazing and answering all our questions whenever we had doubt. Most photographers prices are ridiculous money but I was so surprised with Bruckshaw Photography value for money.
Our wedding was in a shambles last year when the company that we booked with went bankrupt and we lost everythi ng.
The girls stepped in and covered our day with some fantastic photos free is charge, these ladies made sure that our special day was remembered.
They were there for us in our desire and supported us every step of the way, we cannot Thank them enough and would nominate bruckshaw photography every time.
Absolutely amazing photographers. I could not have asked for better on my wedding day. They are absolutely fantastic. So kind, caring and kept us going through the nerves!! Highly recommend and will always recommend to anyone in the future. Amazing!!
We couldn’t fault the service provided by Bruckshaw Photography. From the start, they put us at ease and went out of their way to meet our requests. They captured our day perfectly with a range of planned and natural photographs. Our guests complimented their fun, friendly and professional manner. The complete photo album that they produced went beyond all of our expectations and has provided us with memories to treasure forever – thank you Sarah!
We cannot be more pleased with Bruckshaw photography. The service we received was professional and nothing seemed too much. The commitment they show to their work is amazing, they go the extra mile to make sure they capture every moment of your day. We think the value for money is very good considering they are award winning photographer’s and as for the quality of the photos, we can honestly say that we don’t think we have seen one photo that they have taken that we don’t like, ours and other couples wedding photos alike.
We think they really deserve to win because on every aspect I cannot fault them. One of the most important things for our big day was having a good photographer as photos are memories and we didn’t get a good photographer we got two amazing photographer’s and we will always be grateful to them for capturing our day!
Would highly recommend Sarah of bruckshaw photography as I am not confident person but Sarah went well above what she should do nothing was too much trouble and not just taking photos she looked after me all day making sure everything was in place to tying up my train for the evening I didn’t worry about anything and well what can I say about her photos they are fantastic I always say I look fat in photos but not the ones she took I will go to this company when I want any more photos done
I cannot thank sarah enough for all there help and support in the run up and on the wedding day itself nothing was too much trouble for the both the made me and my family so relaxed in what was a very emotional day
Would just like to say a massive Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for my amazing wedding album. It’s absolutely amazing and I’m so happy with it. The service has been amazing, feeling like I’ve shared it with friends rather than a business. Thankyou again 😍😍
Bruckshaw Photography was absolutely amazing, So professional, helpful and easy to work with.
They captured all of the photos we asked them to and worked with us throughout the wedding to ensure we had everything we wanted captured. They put me at ease from the beginning and i couldn’t have imagined being photographed by anyone else. Will be recommending to all my friends and family.
Fantastic service from start to finish. As one of the most important aspects of the day we needed confidence in our photographers. We felt this straight away upon first meetings. Sarah allowed flexibility for our circumstances at the time which put our minds at ease. Sarah was so committed to ensuring our day ran smoothly which reflected in our photos. Everyone did as they were told for the photos because of Sarah’s professional and humourous manner. We are so pleased with our finished product; disc & photo album. We would highly recommend Bruckshaw Photography to all couples due to get married!
Amazing person that made us feel fabulous! Their warmth and enthusiasm made them feel like part of the day rather than just somebody you hire for a service. Very dedicated and amazing service. Thank you so much!
I was recommended Bruckshaw Photography by a friend. After having our first consultation I felt more than happy that we’d found the right photographers. Their passion about photography and the beautiful albums they brought to show us really made us feel confident. I had contact prior to the wedding and leading up to ensure that I was going to get the best out of our day.
When the day came Sarah’s commitment and attention to detail was outstanding. They advised us in different situations, helping to get the best possible photos.
After waiting only a short time I was thrilled to be getting my photos. When the album was given to me Sarah came to deliver it personal ally to ensure that I was happy with absolutely everything!!
We were over the moon with every single picture that was taken and will definitely need to make space on our walls for our photos.
I would personally recommend Bruckshaw Photogrpahy to any bride and groom. She was absolutely fantastic.
I had the absolute honour and pleasure to have Sarah to photograph our wedding in July.
From the moment we met over 2 years ago I knew they were going to be fantastic. They were personally recommended to be by 2 different couples as they photographed their weddings and I fell in love with their albums and a little envious.
Our friendship grew from Facebook stalking and tagging each other in photos and posts.
Both me and my husband hate having our photos taken and we were a little nervous, but through getting to know each other over the years it felt like an old friend was taking our photos, we felt at ease and did not stop laughing all day.
I feel it is really important to feel comfortable around your photographers as they have one of the most important roles to play in your special day. From the moment they burst into my bridal room as excited about my wedding day as I was, I knew I was going to have fun with these 2.
Their ideas were amazing and the end results were better then I could ever have imagined, at one point they had me climbing rocks in my heals for the perfect photo which now has pride of place on my wall in my lounge.
Sarah is an absolute professional and nothing gets in her way for the perfect photo for her brides; even when I almost killed her with my wedding breakfast. I had no idea until weeks later that she had an allergy to mustard and that she had a reaction to my food. For this I love them even more!
When she hand delivered the album to our door I expected it to be good but I was blown away with how fantastic it was. Looking through the photos and reliving the day all over again, I was so touched to see how excited they were at our reactions to the album and when I cried with happiness Sarah was crying too. They truly do put their heart and soul into their work and are simply the best wedding photographers around and deserve to win this award for the recognition to all their hard work. I will highly recommend them to any bride and groom.
They were my photographers on the day but now they are our friends and will have a special place in our hearts when we think back to our wedding day.
Thank you Sarah love Mr & Mrs Milden xxx
Without the help of sarah our wedding wouldn’t have gone ahead. Our venue shut a week before we went to get married. Sarah called around and helped find another venues, and kept me calm. I called her so many times and nothing was to much trouble.
On the day Sarah was so helpful and felt like more than wedding photographers but friends. They made our guests laugh and helped me feel at ease. When we got our album and photographs I cried it was so beautiful and brought the whole day back to us. I love my photographs so much. They are the best there is.
Sarah was amazing on the day. Making everything fun and calm throughout the day. We couldn’t imagine having anybody else do our photography. The albulm is perfect and the photos are beautiful
Bruckhaw phottography were wonderful. Simply i would explain them as the following
Perfect (Made our day so special in photos)
Professional (Attention to detail was superb)
Polite (Two most lovely People)
They were part of our day from helping my wife put her wedding dress on to being so patient to my families on the day. Nothing was to much trouble.
We have now received our album which is extremely stunning and takes us back to that wonderful day whenever we open it.
Sarah delivered our album and completed a truly wonderful experience. This was for me the level of service you would expect from a professional company. This i see with Bruckshaw photography.
Highly recommended and we can’t thank Bruckshaw Photography enough. A truly wonderful company thanks from the new Mr & Mrs Goodman xx
Sarah is undoubtedly an absolute amazement!
From the very first meeting, right up until the day, they have been nothing less than perfect.
They are friendly, approachable, helpful, professional, organized and just generally an asset to any event.
We are privileged to of had this remarkable girl make our day truly special. They have really gone above and beyond in assisting us. Always at the end of the phone for advice and support, they ensured everything ran smoothly throughout the day.
Nothing is ever too much trouble, these girls are marvels and just fantastic in every way.
Steph and Dale Mullen
I cannot describe how happy I am that I used bruckshaw photography!!!! From the first meeting, to the communication, to the day itself and the photos and album I am just overwhelmed with happiness! The captured all the precious moments in detail and we were overwhelmed with the quality of the album bad photos ( I voted before but my last comment sent too early!!! So this is added onto my last message! Also b4 I sent it predictive txt put bad but that was the incorrect word lol! No one could ever use that word about this company )
I’m soooo happy with the quality of photos and the friendly nature of the photographers made the day feel very relaxed !!!! I’m soooo happy! 10/10!!!
Bruckshaw photography clearly enjoy every wedding day they shoot which they do with so much passion and compassion for every couple they meet. They were calm and professional even when having to really large numbers of guests. They were polite and listened to us whilst implementing their own knowledge and ideas to make things work.
Never once did we feel pressured or uneasy and best of all they made us laugh all day. The finished products and book of photos brought my mother back to tears. Thank you.
With Bruckshaw Photography we found an absolute gem – two wonderful photographers who made me laugh & smile – the result a beautiful collection of memories which we have literally been mesmerised by since we received photos & book. The quality & composition of the photos are excellent capturing all the emotions of the day….the personal service and attention to detail with customer service is second to none. They deserve and earn this award every single day with their commitment to what they do. I salute you both!
This lovely lady photography is unbelievable!!!! completely outstanding. We became very emotional seeing our photographs and couldn’t believe how truly amazing they were. When we show people they are WOWed at how amazing they are. Not only did Sarah and Stephanie provide an exceptional service by making us feel completely as ease they made us laugh ( a lot), they listened to exactly what we wanted and provided such professionalism when giving us advice, there knowledge in this field flooded through. but sarah provided a whole lot more than what would be expected of a photographer, Sarah in fact saved our wedding when our wedding reception venue went into liquidation just 4 weeks before our big day, sarah worked tirelessly, made endless phone calls and was unbelievably supportive, at this point she wasn’t just our photographer she became a friend. Sarah did not only help us save our wedding, with the help of some other wonderful people but they gave us a truly spectacular wedding to remember. These ladies truly deserve this award, we will be forever thankful to these lovely ladies for not only being our photographer and providing us with amazing memories that we will treasure forever but for being there in our time of need without you guys we would never of had our dream wedding. If this isn’t above and beyond I don’t know what is.
It felt like we’d known them years. Both me & my husband hate having our pictures taken but they made us feel at ease. Can’t say enough great things about these ladies. They rock!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Bruckshaw Photography couldn’t be more deserving of this award. They are the loveliest, friendliest you could wish to have at your wedding and they contributed to our wedding day being as perfect as it was.
The service they provide is of the very best quality and they were always attentive and accommodating to our needs. Nothing was too much trouble, they made us feel completely relaxed and captured some really gorgeous moments that we will treasure forever.
It was really reassuring and calming to have such professional and experienced photographers with us on the day. Things were very hectic and we were buzzing around speaking to all of our guests, but Bruckshaw Photography kept us on track and ensured we got all the photos we wanted.
We can’t believe what great value for money our package was and we really couldn’t be happier with our photos. The ladies did an amazing job and they come highly recommended by us both.
We really hope they win at the Wedding Awards as they do such an amazing job and deserve the recognition for their dedication and commitment to giving people the very best wedding photos.
From the minute I meet sarah I knew she was the photographer we’d been looking for. She brought sample albums and sat and chatted by the time she left I felt I’d gained a friend. On my wedding day nothing was too much trouble, sarah was amazing the made me feel relaxed and even helped with with me and my bridesmaids dress. My mum is in a wheel chair and they arranged the group photographs around her making sure she was ok all the time and making all our guest laugh and smile. When we got our album, I was speechless they captured everything all the details and all the tears I have recommended them since and will continue to do so. The photographs are amazing, the girls are friendly and professional and the best at what they do.
From the moment we met Sarah we knew she would be the best person for our day. She made us feel comfortable, was like we had known her forever not just the 5 minutes before. the service bruckshaw photography offer is amazing and the value for money is outstanding you get a lot more than just your photos it feels like you’ve gained a friend to..from the photo I’ve received so far I feel the quality is above and beyond. The commitment and communication has always been Fantastic, I have a disabled brother who bruckshaw photography managed to work with amazingly.nothing was too much bother they really added to our special day.
Found Sarah totally by chance (having never been to Plymouth before as it’s where dan is based at the time) Our photos are fantastic! Sarah put us both at ease given that we were having the smallest wedding ever! She was actually our witness too 🙂 so thank you so much!!
Since moving to Plymouth I’ve seen sarah around and she always stops and asks how we are I truly have a friend in her now.
We received our album today and both myself and my husband are completely blown away it exceeded our expectations 10 fold. From the very first meeting we had with sarah we felt so at ease she was so friendly and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else to document our wedding. Sarah arrived with me full of enthusiasm and instantly was a hit with all of my friends. Because we were all staying at the venue sarah also went across and photographed John and his grooms party. We could hear them all laughing. She really does have a way with people. When my mum couldn’t tie my dress up sarah but down her camera and offered to help which was a life saver. She really went above and behind.
We had gone over a list with sarah beforehand and she not only made sure everyone was photographed she made it fun with all our laughing. A lot of our guests came up to us on the day and mention how great our photographer was even during the evening I saw her having a little dance with my grandad! It really felt like sarah was a friend infact more than that like one of our family. All the time laughing and maintaining an air of professionalism especially around our cheeky grooms party. We received our preview within a few weeks and some of our photos have also been used by our venue on the website. To say we are happy with sarah is an understatement. She’s the best wedding photographer by far!!! Love Shelly and John. Good luck x
Amazing photos Sarah was amazing and was very patient with kids and family our photos are amazing and she captured so truly natural photos my wedding album was breath taking and I love it highly recommended quality of photos is amazing
Sarah (bruckshaw photography) is so friendly. She made everyone feel relaxed and she was a pleasure to have around. We have already recieved our usb of photographs which are amazing. in fact one of our friends have already booked sarah for their wedding.
I sourced Sarah as I had been to a wedding she photographed previously and everyone within the wedding industry spoke highly of her and her work. I have to say we were completely blown away with our amazing wedding pictures. Sarah started out as our photographer yet we count her as a friend now. A very talented one. I have very low self esteem yet Sarah made me feel like a million dollars boosted my confidence and for that I will be forever grateful. Our day ran smoothly and this was due to Sarah organising the guests accordingly. My best friend has already booked bruckshaw photography for her wedding in 2020. I would recommend Sarah a million times over. She has attention to detail that we didn’t feel other photographers were able to deliver. Sarah bruckshaw we will eternally be grateful to you keep doing what you are just amazing at doing.
Oh my goodness I love Sarah. She is so friendly and talented and we could not have had a better photographer to photograph our wedding. Sarah was amazing from start to finish but to me she was more than that she was really good and calming me down when I started to feel overwhelmed. Our wedding would not have been the same without sarah being there. Our photographers are AMAZING and I am extremely fussy due to me being a photographer.
An outstanding photographer and the most friendly and kind hearted person.
We had an engagement shoot with sarah which made us feel so at ease and relaxed in front of the camera. A truly amazing photographer who helped fill our day with joy and fun.
She is so talented, fun and friendly even the vicar commented.
Our photographs are incredible.
Sarah was amazing, she answered all my questions and we had several meetings in the run up prior to our wedding. On the day itself sarah captured everything and as we are big rugby fans sarah had some fun poses for us to do. We couldn’t stop laughing, all day our guests were
Commenting on how fantastic our photographer was so organised, funny and friendly. When sarah delivered our album and usb I cried it was so beautiful and made me relive the day and sarah seemed emotionally invested I felt like we had become friends .She had captured everything things I’d forgotten or hadn’d even seen! It’s a pleasure to give sarah this vote she is one of a kind.
Sarah was absolutely amazing from the day I booked her right the way through. Went above and beyond to make sure the day went without a hitch.. if there was a problem involving anything she was on hand to offer reassurance & support.
Then onto the day.. from the minute she walked in I was put at ease right away. She was happy. Chatty and I felt like I had known her years!
All the way through the day she made everyone just happy & feel so easy and not awkward! I was so excited, then I received my preview photos & was in total awe! When I received my album it was literally like I was reliving the actual day, all her photos were phenomenal, so natural & just stunning.
I would never recommend anyone other then Sarah to anyone for the wedding because she was just the best, so easy to work with & the photos/styles she produces is truly amazing!
Bruckshaw photography are a fantastic company to have capture your special day. Both Sarah and her partner are reliable, knowledgeable, organised and made the whole experience run smoothly. They always keep in contact with their clients and make sure everything is correct and in place for the day.
The finishing products were delivered as promised and the photos were fantastic! I recommend Bruckshaw photography to everyone who is looking for a wedding photographer.
We didn’t originally have sarah booked for our wedding but after having an engagement shoot from a different photographer my makeup artist suggested meeting sarah.
sarah came to our house only a few weeks before our wedding and as soon as she sat in out dining room i knew we had found the right photographer for us. it felt like she was a friend. she sat and listened to my concerns and then put my mind at ease.
On the day itself sarah arrived and it was raining making me even more anxious and yet again sarah put my mind at ease. i hate having my photo taken and just before i stepped into my dress sarah took my aside and said something i will never forget and will always be thankful for. she understood hoe i was feeling and was not only friendy but a complete professional.
Sarah was more than just a photographer she constantly reassured us, made out families laugh and made a potentially different day for me fun.
when sarah came around to deliver the album and disk i felt ill with nerves and myself and my mum burst into tears when we saw how beautiful the photos were.
sarah is an unique gift she was the ultimate profession but somehow made me feel relax and I couldn’t stop laughing which for someone who dislikes the camera is amazing.
sarah derserves to win this award, she is more than just a first class photographer she is truly as a beautiful soul.
We can not thank Sarah & Danny enough for helping to make Our Wedding so Magical and Our Dreams come true. The amazing photographs we received will be memories to cherish Forever. The professionalism and helpfulness shown was outstanding. All my requests were captured along with so much more.
Amazing service deferentially recommend this company very hard working and very polite.
This company is amazing. I didn’t have to worry about getting people pictures she sorted it! She was very hands on helps with other stuff also.
