"David captured our big day so beautifully, with the perfect mix of candid shots and artfully composed ones. He’s a very creative photographer and has unique ideas for each wedding which makes them all feel so personal.
David really made the most of the setting and took some amazing images of us as the sun was setting. We also didn’t feel like we had to spend a lot of time taking photos and could just enjoy the day, the balance was perfect. We can’t recommend him enough (and we do to anyone who tells us they’re getting married :D) Thanks David!"

"I would recommend Fine Art Wedding Photography by David Swailes to any couple getting married. He is friendly, professional and very good at his job. All the wedding guests commented on how charming David was.
When we got our photos back they came in a beautiful wooden box. Inside was a wooden engraved usb stick which was all very well presented. We didn’t realise just how many photos David took until watching them back, he got every little thing that we could imagine right down to the room dressing, cake, favours and cuff links. And the quality is just perfect."
Katie & Rhys
"We are so grateful for our beautiful wedding photos taken by David. He took so many natural photos that look amazing. David was very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend him. Thank you!"
Sarah & Jarrod
"What a photographer! We have just received all our photos from our wedding in February and we are absolutely in love with them! David captured our day perfectly and was very discreet throughout. Prior to our big day, David contacted us for a list of photos that was important to us and he ensured these were captured on the day - this was very important to us!
On the day David was so discreet we hardly noticed him! This discreetness ensured we had the natural photos we wanted - David even managed to capture the emotions of some guests that we weren't even aware of! Along with a photographer, we also had a videographer to capture our day and despite not even meeting beforehand, both professionals worked so well together!
If you are looking for a relaxed and professional photographer, I would 100% recommend David!"

Mel & George
"A huge thank you to David who was thoroughly professional, mindful and completely on point on our big day. The photos are amazing of which we'll cherish forever. Very very highly recommended!"
Stacey & Gareth
"I don't even know where to begin when it comes to David! Is there such thing as too much praise?
As well as producing the most wonderful photographs, David was discreet (I didn't even see him in the wedding ceremony), professional and a fabulous director, all of which contributed towards our relaxed and natural photos, which is exactly what we wanted.
Prior to the big day David had already assessed our venue and asked for a photo list which meant everything ran smoothly and efficiently too!
We had great fun working with David and cannot recommend him highly enough."
Harriet & Sam
"I cannot thank David enough for being our Wedding Photographer. He knew exactly what kind of photos we wanted taken which made it so much more fun and relaxed! He also took his time capturing all the little details of the day! The photos we received back were just perfect! Highly recommend! Thank you again David!"
Mel & Ash
"A wonderfully talented young man who did such a fantastic job with our special day. We got exactly what we wanted and he never felt too bossy or intrusive like some wedding photographers can. We are over the moon with the final selection of images and David is a true gem. Can’t recommend him enough!".
Verity & Dale
"From the initial interview regarding what we wanted to the supplying of our photos, David was the epitome of professionalism.
He has such a burning passion for photography, which really translated to our beautiful wedding photos. He couldn't do enough for us on the day to make sure he captured all the photos we wanted and all the photos we didn't know we wanted as well!
His style and artistic direction are second to none and we were very lucky to be able to have him shoot our wedding.
I can't recommend David highly enough! Thank you for capturing our day in the way you did."

"From start to finish, David conducted himself in a highly professional way making us feel at ease and very comfortable in his presence (we hardly noticed he was there on the big day). Through meticulous planning, David was sensitive to our needs - we really needed a bit of everything for our wedding photos, from family shots to more 'fine art' snap shots; he managed to fit everything in seamlessly.
David had thought of everything on our wedding day, including some napkins for me to sit on to avoid marking my dress during the bride and groom shots. David worked exceptionally hard during the planning, photography and editing stages for our wedding.
The result of which, not only showcases his talent as a photographer but his professionalism, dedication and natural aptitude for working with people and capturing their special moments. Our photos showcase the day perfectively and we could not have asked for a better photographer. We would highly recommend working with David for your wedding!"
Francesca & Sean

Stephanie & Brock
"Thank you so much! We sat down with a glass of bubbly with our parents and sisters to view the photos and we all thought they are incredible! There was a lot of "Oooooo" and "Awww" and giggles (especially in the dancing pictures). You really captured the whole day and truly highlights how happy everyone was."
Rebecca & Perry
"David was a wonderful addition to our Wedding Day. He made us both feel at ease in the run up and on the day. The photos he took of our special day were wonderful and really captured the atmosphere that we wanted. The posed group shots were fantastic but we were most impressed with the candid, natural photos taken on the day. Thank you David."

"We have used David for our Wedding, Pregnancy and a Family photoshoots. He has always captured the most beautiful photos and fulfilled our expectations. David is not only a fantastic photographer but a lovely person who always puts us at ease and helps us to enjoy the experience."
Carly & Ryan
"David photographed our wedding 2 years ago, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the very start we were able to give him a full brief of what sort of images we wanted to create, of which he stuck to perfectly! On the day he was excellent, putting all of our guests at ease, being unobtrusive whilst capturing the most amazing shots. We were so happy with the final pictures, even before any editing! A truly special photographer who I would definitely recommend for anyone’s big day."
