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!!!

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!

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.

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!

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.

From the moment I went with Nikki she made sure she knew exactly what I wanted, nothing was too much trouble. Nikki listened to all my ideas and was able to guide me in the right direction in terms of what would and wouldn't work both with the wedding day and the wedding album. On the 'big day' Nikki was patient, unobtrusive and I can honestly say made the whole photographic experience fun. She has been an absolute star with the patience of a saint. I plan to use the company again for other upcoming events.

Nikki was fantastic! She worked with us from the very first informal meeting to discuss our budget and what we wanted to achieve. She gave us guidance and ideas about the best photographic places in our wedding venue and what options we had. Nikki was not only very professional but friendly too and had the perfect tone for gathering everyone together for the photographs so there was no waiting around. I have since recommended Nikki to a few brides to be with no hesitation.

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.

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!

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.
