Kim & Nick's Wedding at
The Parish Church of John
The Baptist, Danbury

Well what can we say ?  No words can truly put across just how good Noel & Helen really are. From our meetings we were put at ease and they knew exactly what we wanted and our photos show this, we can't stop looking at them. Unfortunately my elderly nan wasn't able to attend our ceremony, but they kindly drove to my nans house the following day and took photos of us, adding to our album which means even more now as my Nan has sadly passed away since. Having these photos now part of our album means more to us then we can express and we've made two wonderful friends. Thank you both, we are so glad you were a part of it.

Helen & Noel are absolutely wonderful, they really do give their all to ensure you get the day you'd always dreamed of. Nothing is too much and as the professionals they are, you don't even notice they are there. We love every single photo taken and wouldn't have dreamt of having anyone else at our wedding. These guys do not disappoint. 100% recommend.

Victoria & Leigh's Wedding at
Gosfield Hall


Helen and Noel captured our Halloween Wedding at Gosfield Hall perfectly. They were there but not there, blended in with the guests and caught the most beautiful moments when we weren’t even looking. Having multiple camera’s meant that they split up and we had lots of photos from different angles They were also with us from start the finish, they had words of advice and managed to keep me calm before the big day. Noel even brought out his inner hairdresser helping one of the girls who’s hair wasn’t playing ball in the morning, I do believe there’s a picture of that moment too which is just wonderful. These guys are absolute perfectionists and know how to work their cameras with precision! As the title says they really are “Simply the best” I cannot recommend them highly enough

Shelley & Steve's Wedding at
Ye Olde Plough House

​A very professional husband & wife team  who we built a fantastic friendly relationship with in the run up to our wedding and who we now class as our friends.

Our date had to be changed three times due to the covid pandemic. Helen & Noel kept us completely reassured with our contract agreement at all times, staying in touch until our big day.

They both came to our house a few times to discuss and understand exactly what we would like to happen on our wedding day  and they explained what they would do to help us make sure our wedding day went fantastically well. Which it did with both their help on the day. 

They not only came to our house numerous times, but to the wedding venue a few times and to the actual church we we’re getting married in too a couple of times. They’re aim was to make our wedding day go superbly well.  They even went out of their way to find  certain music we wanted for our ceremony . They were both very helpful in assisting with the wedding cars, in the church, at the wedding venue and with the toastmaster too

They made our wedding party & guests feel very relaxed and at ease.

Their work is outstanding and the photographs are fantastic.

You only need to look into our wedding album to see the quality photographs they both took. Excellent photos. 

Thank you both Helen and Noel. You are a fantastic couple, extremely helpful and sincere and your photographs are excellent.

We would sincerely recommend anyone planning to get wed to use H&N photography.

Prested Hall

What can we say about H N Photography. We’ll start by saying we’re so glad we found them. From the first meet with Helen & Noel they made us feel not just as customers but new friends. They took turns in explaining what they do and how they do it, everything was no pressure and they listened to what we wanted.

Throughout venue change and Covid they stood by us all the way keeping in regular contact to put our minds at ease. On the lead up to the day we had further meetings with them (including a meal) they were so professional but most of all they became our friends.

On the big day they calmed our nerves and done their job in such a way you didn’t notice them. The quality of the pictures was outstanding including the video that we didn’t even notice they were filming.

We both owe them our thanks, not only for the quality of work but their friendship. Please consider strongly H N photography, you will not be disappointed.

Many thanks and love to both.

Lucy & Ali's Wedding at
Gosfield Hall

Helen and Noel photographed our wedding in December and we can't stop looking at the photos. They have captured everything 
perfectly - the venue, the guests, ourselves and even all the fine details such as the pattern on the wedding dress and the bridesmaids' jewellery.

We had several meetings before the wedding, including a visit to the venue (Gosfield Hall), so that on the big day we already knew each 
other very well and felt much more relaxed. They are incredibly friendly and helpful, and true professionals.

Despite the large number of photos taken, noone ever felt uncomfortable. The guests commented on how they barely noticed Helen and Noel
were there but were amazed by the quality of the photos, even the candid ones were they hadn't posed.

I will be recommending Helen and Noel to everyone.

Ali (Groom)

Lucy & Ali's Wedding at
Gosfield Hall

Choosing wedding photographers is always risky but when my son, Ali, and his fiancee, Lucy, decided to approach Noel and Helen, what a great decision that turned out to be!
Ali and Lucy , together with my wife and I, were immediately struck by their extremely friendly and approachable manner and we quickly arranged our first meeting together. Very soon we were all laughing and enjoying the evening together and it was as if Ali and Lucy had been best friends with Noel and Helen forever - such is their ability to really engage with their clients.

By the time the big day arrived, Noel and Helen were firm friends having met on several occasions with us all to really get to know exactly what we required, proving to be extremely accommodating and eager to help.
On the wedding day itself, they remained low key and unobtrusive whilst still managing to perfectly and skillfully capture every detail of the day to leave a complete visual record of every aspect.
This couple don't go the extra mile - they go far beyond and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone seeking professional, high quality wedding photography services.
Well done Helen and Noel

Nicola & William's Wedding at
Rivenhall Hotel

Helen and Noel done our wedding in august, what a great couple to have doing our photography. From our first meeting to the day itself they where always on hand to answer any questions we had and to give us some ideas for photos. They where never pushy and stayed in the background but got some amazing pictures. Organisation of the confetti throw and group photos was done with ease. Highly recommend these guys for your wedding.

Lauren & Luke's Wedding at

Helen and Noel did our wedding photography in June this year. They are not only amazing photographers but also such amazing and genuine people. 
Myself and at the time husband to be, was completely blown away at our first meeting with Helen and Noel, where their professional, yet exceedingly approachable and friendly, nature meant we were talking for many hours beyond our original meeting time. So much so that we had pretty much decided they was who wanted to photograph such a special day before they even walked out of the door.

They are full of helpful advice and information and are on hand all the way up to and after your big day. On the day they went above and beyond what we were expecting; nothing was too much for them. Our wedding was in the evening and my husband to be and I agreed that they could both rest for a fair period of the day between timings, but they decided on their own back to take such amazing quality photos all throughout the day. Helen kept me calm and didn’t allow the nerves to settle in and although I knew she was there taking photos it was easy to forget what she was doing and continue to enjoy the preparation time before the big moment and I know for a fact that Noel did the same for my then husband to be and his grooms party.

There will never be enough words to describe how thankful we are to Helen and Noel and would recommend these amazing people to anyone who is getting married and looking for someone to photograph their big day and all the special memories.

Helen and Noel photographed our wedding. Although we haven't seen all of the photos, the ones we have seen are amazing! They were both so professional and never intruded on our special day. We didn't even realise they were there, 99% of the time. They are a lovely couple, who met with us many times. Even though we changed our minds so many times, they were very patient with us.

Thank you, so much, both of you. xxx
