Sally's photographs of our daughter Gail's wedding in Scotland absolutely captured the mood of the event and provided all those who attended with a wonderful memory of the day. She caught the swirl of the kilts at the ceilidh brilliantly and really showed how enthusiastically her new husband Chris' friends and family from Devon got stuck into the swing of the Scottish country dancing. Whether it was group photos, close up portraits, flowers, table settings, outdoor or indoor shots, all were done to perfection. The manager of the hotel venue in South West Scotland was so impressed with the photographs that he has asked Sally to travel up from Bristol to be the photographer as part of a £10,000 wedding promotional as advertised in a recent edition of the Dumfries and Galloway Magazine.

With all the potential stress that comes with organising and putting into motion the most amazing day of your life Sally proved a refreshing tonic to it all. She was exceptionally well organised, contactable and reliable
throughout. On the day we were very impressed by her friendly, warm and open
manner which many of our guests commented on. Her artistic skills surpassed
all our expectations by showing a true vision in taking many beautiful
pictures. We believe the defining aspect of Sally's photography is her
ability to capture the emotion of the day in stills that will no doubt stand
the test of time.

We watched our Wedding Slideshow DVD last night and they certainly did not disappoint, in fact it was really very emotional, reliving the day all over again. They were so beautiful and captured so many beautifiul moments throughout the day. We've had quite a few comments by our guests on your personability, and you blended into the day completely naturally, covering each important detail with humour and fun, as well as artistic vision, we are very impressed. Thank you so much.

We are really pleased with our photos. You were fantastic on the day and made sure our photos were stress-free! Thank you so much for being part of our special day and for capturing so many special moments so beautifully.

We love the photos! The wedding photographs are such an important part of the memories of the day and Sally’s were everything we could have hoped for. It was a pleasure to have Sally capturing the event from start to finish and she immediately understood what kind of relaxed photos we wanted. She managed to get fantastic photos of people without them even realising and they look so natural as a consequence. The guests all felt completely at ease with Sally and she did well to control our rowdy guests so effortlessly! The quality of the photos speak for themselves and we would not hesitate to recommend Sally to family and friends.

Right from our intial contact with Sally she made the choice of photographer easy - cool, professional and talented, we warmed to her instantly, something that is always helpful when someone is spending one of the most important days of your life with you. We certainly weren't disappointed either. Regular contact meant that there was no question or query unanswered, and no 'will she, won't she turn up'!
Arriving as we were getting ready she worked solidly throughout the day being there to capture every moment as it happened (we didn't have to 'fake' the cake cutting or first dance as stated by other photographers we researched!)
The photographs are superb, we can't stop looking at them we are so pleased. They did exactly what we wanted - told the story of our day beautifully without being stuffy or unnatural. We didn't even notice most of them being taken, Sally was so discreet.
We would thoroughly recommend Ryde Photography if what you are after is a bespoke, reportage style, down to earth yet professional service. Sally is a true artist!

Sally did a grand job for us on our wedding in Bristol zoo in July 2009. Her service was spot-on throughout and we were delighted with the final pictures, "reportage-style." She managed to achieve that optimal blend of professionalism, confidence and subtlety that you need on your big day.
I'd have no hesitations in recommending her to others.

We received the DVD on Saturday and cannot thank you enough. It is absolutely beautiful! It has had both of us blubbing at one point or another. We watched it through twice immediately, then with my parents and then with Tony’s. You’re an absolute miracle worker – we’re delighted!

Anyway, we're so grateful for the fantastic photos. Being able to watch them on the dvd was wonderful. You captured every moment, including ones that I had missed on the day. You did a superb job and the photos exceeded our expectations. We can't thank you enough, we love them.
I'd also like to add that we've had lots of compliments on them, and quite honestly I think they're the best wedding photos I've seen (nothing to do with me being in them!!!).

I don't think we realised how important the photos of our big day were until we received the DVD from Sally - with great anticipation we watched the slideshow of our day and re-lived the whole event. The photos were amazing and taken with such care that captured the best image but also with an 'edge' that we love. Numerous friends and family have now seen the photos too and with the bright colours of our wedding (orange and red) added to the look of the photos, everyone has been really impressed.

Sally worked tirelessly throughout the day for us and even harder afterwards, creating an amazing slideshow of images to music (hearing the songs on the radio now actually remind us of the wedding!) and a fantastic album. She really transmitted all elements of our wedding into the photos and the album just sums up the day completely

We wanted to let you know how much we love and appreciate your photos. The slideshow is far more than we ever expected and we think that it is just amazing- the music the detail, the photography is just stunning and we can't thank you enough for leaving us with the best memento from our wedding day, it is such a joy for us to watch especially as we didn't see most of the shots from where we were standing! It is just the best far more stylish than a video but with the same affect like you are there- what a clever lady you are.

We thoroughly enjoyed spending the afternoon with you in Chipping Campden. You are a lovely person and a pleasure to work with!
