What my customers say
Absolutely amazing did everything we asked! Even made sure that we had loads of photos of other people and lots of natural pictures that we does officially asked for (which I know a few of my friends got married in other areas and non of them did this) we just wish we could have kept her all evening. Amazing!! Would get married again for some more of her photos. Also to say we met her through the wedding and our photos we have learnt that Nikki is a great person as so caring and supportive! Thank you so much!!!

So wether your mad like us and plan a wedding in york from 100's of miles away in 12 weeks and don't know what you want other than 'photos' or you are more sensible allowing plenty of planning time, plenty of visits and know exactly what you want - give Nikki a call I am sure you won't be disappointed.
Thank you Nikki for our wonderful photos which will help us remember our happy memories for a lifetime - I wish your business every success in the future - you deserve it x
Nikki and Mark - The Cedar Court Grande, York
Nikki was our photographer for our wedding party...we were married elsewhere and celebrated at a later date with friends & family at the The Merchant Adventurers Hall. Nikki was amazing, she took hundreds of photos without us needing to pose for hours and the end result made us speechless, photo after photo which wouldn't look out of place in any bridal magazine. Nikki captured special moments in time rather than lots of staged photos, something I was very keen on when I looked for a photographer. Nikki was relaxed and friendly (even towards our less then perfectly behaved dog!) but focused on getting all of the shots we had asked for. I was particularly impressed with how she acted with the children one of which wouldn't pose on our actual wedding day but Nikki somehow got her on side and provided us with many images of our mini bridesmaid! Everyone who has seen our photos adores them and many people have asked me for Nikkis details since! Thank you Nikki Bowling Photography and Design!
Caroline and Andy - The Merchant Adventurer's Hall, York
Nikki is not only an incredibly talented photographer but also a really lovely, friendly lady who makes you feel relaxed and comfortable - even on your wedding day! My husband and I booked Nikki for our wedding in August and she was such a pleasure to work with; she was helpful and supportive during the planning and on the day I couldn't have asked for a more calming, organised and insightful photographer. She captured the little details I felt sure would be forgotten and honestly made me feel like a princess! The photos were amazing- they captured the whole day perfectly and I love the mixture of colour, black and white and sepia shots, in a range of candids and posed shots. There are hundreds of images and we honestly don't know how to pick our favourites for the album! Nikki's services are invaluable and she's a rare find. I wholeheartedly reccomend her. You won't be disappointed.
Jen and Dean - The Crab and Lobster, Thirsk
Nikki is an amazing photographer! She captured our wedding day perfectly and ensured that the photos reflected both our day and our relationship. From booking her through to picking up our photos she was so professional but also really friendly. I would recommend Nikki to anyone!
Kirsty and Ryan - The Mariott Hotel, York
Nikki did a fantastic job at our wedding! She had been suffering Pneumonia but no one knew, she is a true professional that delivers outstanding shots.
Thank you Nikki for helping capture our wedding day for us, our photos are beautiful x
Kelly and Rich - Aldwark Manor, York
I am so glad Nikki did our wedding photography, she went way beyond our expectations of our photograph's! We had a wonderful happy day with our family and friends, and she captured the atmosphere perfectly. She more than delivered the outline I had given her, and we have beautiful artistic memento's of our very special day. I love how she seized the moments of different parts of our day, both the formal and informal. We will treasure these photographs, and I could not recommend her highly enough! The trouble will be now just deciding what to leave out of the album!
Rowan and Ian - Fairfield Manor, York
Nikki was our wedding photographer earlier this year and all I can say is wow. We requested more candid pictures as we wanted to capture the true feel of the day and Nikki did that in buckets. I couldn't be happier with the pictures. We have the formal posed pictures as well as a few location ones which really show what George and I were feeling on the day, but my favourite have to be the ones she snapped walking round our venue as people enjoyed themselves.
Nikki I can't thank you enough they're wonderful. I'll be in touch next time we have a day we want to remember
Hannah and George - York Register Office
Nikki was brilliant on our wedding day: Professional, but personal at the same time. She made everyone feel so comfortable and, consequently, captured some really beautiful moments. As a "stressed out" bride, I really cannot compliment Nikki enough... in both the run up to our wedding, and afterwards, her communication was excellent - so proactive. She was incredibly organised and efficient. It really made this part of organising the wedding effortless. We would highly recommend her.

Elaine and Alan - The Bridhe Inn, Walshford
The wonderful Nikki Bowling captured our day from bridal prep to the first dance (and beyond). We got the set pieces we requested and a plethora of candid, natural shots which capture our day perfectly.
Nikki was very familiar with our venue and knew all the good nooks and crannies to get really wonderful pictures. A number of our guests commented on how great she was on the day. Getting her job done without imposing on the day and special time with family and friends. I would recommend her to anyone.
Nicola and Gareth - The Pavilion Hotel, York

Lisa and Colin - York Racecourse
Nikki did a fabulous job of our wedding photos. She was really helpful in the lead up to the wedding and did a fantastic job on the day, very professional. The photos we received were fabulous, better than we ever expected.
Marie and Clint - Aldwark Manor Hotel, Aldwark, York
Nikki is a very talented photographer, managing to capture a wide range of traditional and candid shots whilst making everyone feel completely at ease and undisturbed. Nikki made sure she talked through what we wanted before the wedding and delivered exactly what we asked for. We didn't once feel that we were being pushed and poked to create perfect shots - but they were perfect none the less.
Louise and Lee - The Hospitium, The Museum Gardens, York
Nikki was so helpful right from the start! We immediately felt comfortable with her and she has gone out of her way to ensure that our wedding photos are exactly what we want. She is genuinely interested in producing the best wedding album for us.
Sarah and Gareth - The Parsonage Hotel, Escrick, York
Nikki made sure that our needs were met from the list of photos we desired to the level of privacy and intimacy we wanted to maintain. The venue we had chosen was very diverse offering a range of wonderful photo opportunities and Nikki wasted no time in making sure that all possible angles and unique photographs made the most of our wedding, she had researched the venue thoroughly and it showed in her professional finish. She is friendly and relaxed but really listens and appreciates what her clients want, we were very pleased with her service from start to finish.
Hilary-Ann and John - The Hospitium, The Museum Gardens, York
Nikki is a fantastic photographer. She is so well organised and assisted in making our wedding day so special. Her pictures of our day more than exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a photographer. She will adapt packages to suit any budget, which in today’s economic climate is welcomed. Everyone who has seen our photos has said how lovely they are and would also recommend her. She is a credit to the photography industry.
Andrea and Wayne - The Pavilion Hotel, Fulford, York
Nikki stood out from the other photographers we met from the point of initial contact. She was fantastic to work with and made us both feel comfortable during the planning stage and on the day. Nikki was able to tailor make a package for us that was kind to our budget but gave us exactly what we needed. We are delighted with our photographs of our day and are amazed that she was able to take so many.
Katie and Gemma - Hazelwood Castle, Leeds
Nikki was a really important part of our day, not only because what she would produce would be part of our lives forever, but she did a really wonderful job on such an important day. I often feel uncomfortable having my photo taken but she immediately put me at ease and I enjoyed this part of the day as much as the rest of it! The end result was fantastic as the photos turned out beautifully. It was a joy to have Nikki as part of our big day.
