TESTIMONIALS 2018-02-07T11:56:11+00:00


I put 100% into every wedding I photograph and am confident that my clients are always happy with the results. But don’t just take my word for it; here are some of the things that the lovely people I’ve worked with have kindly said:

“Simon was absolutely outstanding and I couldn’t recommend or praise him enough. He was a real calming influence to us on our day and the little rain shower didn’t deter him at all. He knew all of the good spots to go to around the grounds at certain times for the lighting and effect he was looking for. Every one of our family and friends commented on how well he blended into our day and what a fantastic job he did for us. He put us both at ease and we have some amazing photos of our special day.”

Mrs Lianne Berry (née Hefford)

“Exactly what you would expect from start to finish, the experience definitely pays off with catching those shots others may have missed, keeping level-headed and knowing when and when not to intervene throughout the day, we were very impressed and would always recommend.”

Mr Josh Brant (Surrey)

“Simon was very professional, patient and instantly made us and our guests feel at ease. He listened to the type and style of photos that we wanted, whilst adding his own unique ideas using his knowledge of light and areas of the venue. The finished photos have given us some fantastic, lifelong memories for all involved.”

Mr Jonathan Richards (Surrey)


“Fabulous guy, expert but unobtrusive, not over formal which we wanted. Love the pics and many guests have ordered too.”

Mrs Annelise Simpson (née Hetherington)

“We were so happy with our choice of photographer for our wedding. When we met Simon he was so welcoming and passionate about his work it made our decision so much easier. We knew instanly that Simon had to be our photographer, combinded with his welcoming nature and knowledge of the venue we booked him without hesitation. The photography package that BeUnveiled offered provided excellent value for money, and the quality of the images is fantastic! I would not hesisitate to recommend Simon to anyone!”

Mrs Sarah Hill (Surrey)

“Simon put us at ease, asked what we wanted and considered our personal requirements. His venue knowledge really helped as we had bad weather on the day so got fantastic pics inside. He worked around us to ensure we got outdoor pics when we had the chance. He spoke to guests to get the right shots and was patient, understanding and professional. We had compliments from guests as he created a great atmosphere to get the best pics. No request was too much and his attitude and commitment were faultless all day.”

Mr Mitchener (Sutton)

“Simon made us feel relaxed from our first meeting. He went through what we wanted and how he did things to ensure we were happy with his work and style. He had a full portfolio of different types of weddings so we could be sure he matched our personal taste. He also asked us questions and told us about himself so that we felt genuinely relaxed. We trusted him completely to deliver a great result, which is exactly what he did. Having spoken to several photographers beforehand, we were so relieved to find Simon as he asked us what we wanted, rather than pushing his own views onto us. He worked with us and came up with a plan with us for the day so that we had no doubts about booking him. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone and even did so before our own wedding as we were so confident in his skills, ability and finished product.”

Mrs Lauren Mitchener (Sutton)

“Simon was a great photographer. He is a happy and hard-working person and takes great pride in making your day extra special. He knew all the perfect spots to take pictures and structured his takes. The aftercare of bringing our wedding book together was good as he helped us in the right direction in ordering the photos. Overall Simon was world class.”

Mr Daniel Garner (Surrey)


“After our first consultation we were left feeling confident we were leaving our special moments in the right hands. Simon gave us answers to questions we hadn’t even thought of. All communication was prompt and concise. On the actual day Simon was our rock, giving advice and guidance when appropriate. Being a recommended supplier to the venue Simon knew all the hotspots. Our friends and family have commented on how amazing the photos are. Simon really captured our day.”

Mrs Kerry Morvan (Surrey)

“Simon is an amazing photographer! All our guests commented on how you didn’t notice him at all and so didn’t distract them from the special moments yet he captured everything amazingly. He is so friendly and lovely to have as part of your special day. From start to finish he was professional, approachable, friendly and like part of the wedding party. Best photographer I’ve ever come across.”

Mrs Laura Shaw (née Jones)

“We had a fantastic day and one we would never forget and the photos Simon captured meant we could remember every detail and emotion from the day even though he managed to keep hidden and nonintrusive the whole time. He was on hand whenever we needed him be it for the photography or just some simple advice on how the day would run or even get someone if we needed them. It was a pleasure to have him as our photographer and would highly recommend him.”

Mr Kieran Webster (Surrey)

“With little real information about us and our requirements, an absolutely flawless job was done on the day in order to ensure that our wedding was beautifully photographed. Mr Pope went above and beyond for interesting, unique shots in lieu of the standard wedding poses, and these shots ended up as some of our favourites!”

Mr Gregory Nelson (Surrey)

“Simon (from BeUnveiled) was the epitome of professionalism, but with a wonderful, friendly approach that made you feel you had known him for years. We felt completely at ease the whole day, from when he was taking photos in the bridal preparation room, to the whole gathering outside. He knew the venue so well, that he knew the best times of day to get the best photos in specific surroundings. He went beyond the call of duty, and stayed on late to get us beautiful pictures after sunset.”

Dr Philippa Higgins (Wotton House, Dorking)

“It was like a good friend taking our pictures, all of our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed his company and approach, we weren’t dragged off for hours, he laughed with everyone. His style is unobtrusive – yet the pictures were more than we could ever imagine, capturing the emotions and personalities of everyone there, we never imagined we would get some of the images we did. Outstanding photographer – I think he achieves this by connecting with and putting at ease everyone he captures.”

Mrs Elisa Allsop (Great Fosters, Surrey)

“The only words that can express how grateful we were that Simon was our wedding photographer were that not only did he do such an incredible job taking photographs, but we enjoyed his company and interaction as much as we did any other guest at the wedding. Every single guest commented about Simon and thought he was truly exceptional, and a significant part of the day. Not just having a skillful photographer but a sociable and charismatic person who felt like a guest and a friend.”

Mr Matthew Allsop (Great Fosters, Egham)

“Simon fits into the day like a guest but somehow manages to be everywhere at once, capturing every moment in an unobtrusive way. Our guests all commented on how wonderful he was and the photos are unbelievable, a real memento of the day. He put both my husband and me at ease making it fun. Simon went above and beyond just being a photographer, checking that button holes had arrived, ensuring that my husband and I spent some time alone together and that we had all the shots we wanted and more.”

Mrs Danielle Wells (née Hayes)

“We first met Simon at Hartsfield Manor to discuss our wedding photographs and he was very helpful and guided us through everything and nothing was too much trouble. We are an older couple and his guidance was invaluable and we are over the moon with our photographs. When I was getting ready he was not intrusive and I felt very comfortable with him taking photographs of me. All our family and guests commented on what a great chap he was and how relaxed he made everyone feel.”

Mrs Helen Wright (Hartsfield Manor, Betchworth)

“We couldn’t have been any happier with our selection of wedding photographer. Simon was a complete pleasure to work with and made the whole process seem effortless from start to finish. In the run-up to our big day he was always on hand to answer questions and provide advice. On the day he subtly blended in with our guests and was very unobtrusive. He managed to get photos that were both formal and informal and used them in a way that told the full story of the day. He was perfect in every way.”

Mrs Diana Miles (née Gibbons)

“Simon was so helpful, kind and friendly, though professional, from the first meeting we had with him. He thought of additional things such as heel covers for my shoes and on the day blended into our wedding seamlessly. Many of our guests mentioned how they didn’t even notice him other than during formal pictures. We both aren’t keen on posing for pictures but Simon made it easy for us and also took many non-posed pictures which we loved.”

Mrs Davina Rawlings (Surrey Hills)

“We met Simon at Hartsfield Manor during a Wedding Fair/open day they were hosting. There were a number of suppliers there, including photographers, recommended and previously used by the venue. We spoke to Simon on the day and looked through the sample of albums he had with him. Simon was both professional and friendly providing us both with confidence of his ability to take some amazing photos of our most special day.”

Mrs Sarah Coke (née Cannon)

“For such an exquisite venue, the photographer needed to be just as outstanding. Simon had an in-depth knowledge of Great Fosters which enabled him to create beautiful, timeless photos which have given us no end of joy to look through. Simon’s professionalism and friendly personality put everyone at ease when capturing the day’s events. His ability to appear in two places at once meant he could discretely and respectfully snap shots as I got ready, and also be there for the arrival of the groom.”

Mrs Emily Jupp (Great Fosters, Surrey)

“Neither my husband nor I like photographs of us being taken nor do we usually like the end results. That was until we met Simon. He is an amazing photographer, unlike most weddings we have been to, he managed to create fantastic natural shots in half the time of others so we could enjoy our day. The results are better than we could have ever imagined. My only criticism is how difficult it was to pick the photographs for the album – unless we can have all 550 it was an amazingly hard choice!”

Mrs Debbie Pecover (née Knellar)

“Simon was excellent. He knew where the best places for shots were, was calm and organised throughout the day getting everyone into position, he got great reaction shots from the speeches and really well-framed shots of people in natural positions. We couldn’t thank him enough for how he helped us on the day and the fantastic memories he has given us. There was so much going on during the day and yet he always seemed to know exactly what to do. I would recommend him to everyone.”

Mr William Shepherd (Surrey)

“We were blown away with the images Simon took, they really captured the atmosphere, love and happiness between all of our friends and family. Every single picture made us smile, laugh or cry! Simon even drove back to the venue after he had left to get a sparkler shot I had wanted once it stopped raining! The shot is beautiful! He blended into the wedding, made us and our guests feel comfortable and we cannot thank him enough for capturing our big day so perfectly!”

Mrs Lauren Brown (née Smith)

“Simon is tremendously personable and makes you feel so relaxed. We have had such great comments from guests who found him friendly, approachable and he blended in with our other guests. Our printed wedding book is high quality and many people we have shared it with have commented that they haven’t seen one so well designed and presented. Simon was fantastic in organising our pictures!”

Mrs Laura Gibson (née Hollands)

“Simon did an amazing job. We loved the photos and enjoyed the time with him. We also had many of our guests comment on just how good he was and how friendly and attentive he was through the day, everyone liked him and so it was very relaxed and that shows in the final photos. The final photos were amazing in terms of quality and content as well as the addition of lots of nice detail shots. Overall we were very pleased and highly recommend him.”

Mr Tim Kelf (Surrey)

“We were very pleased with BeUnveiled. Simon was excellent at helping us sort out what special photos we wanted. He arrived punctually on the day, most of the time you didn’t realise he was there taking photos. When we asked for a photo not on the list, he happily obliged. When we got the photos four days later, they were amazing and one was very clever where he got a photo of us walking towards the room and of the room where our guests were waiting all in one shot. Brilliant photographer.”

Mrs Christine Lovett (Surrey)

“Simon is a very professional photographer. He has such an amazing talent for capturing those moments which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was; it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to be documented. He is able to blend in so well with guests that you never noticed him capturing pictures. Simon created some stunning shots that take us back to the day each time we look at them.”

Mrs Muna Guttadauro (née Abdel-Hadi)

“Simon as an individual made us both feel welcome and very relaxed from the moment we met him, he was warm, friendly, but very organised and straight to the point in getting the job done. Our guests also felt very relaxed around him and at times didn’t even notice he was there!!! We have had such great feedback from our guests on how great Simon was and our photos are stunning and captured special moments we didn’t even know he had seen.”

Mrs Annie Murray (née Holyoake)

“Simon was an obvious choice for our winter wedding at Great Fosters: with the uncertain weather and limited daylight we wanted someone who knew our venue and could make the most of it. For both our engagement shoot last summer and our wedding this year he was fabulous. We had the best time working with him (although to his credit, ‘work’ it definitely was not!) and he managed to balance perfectly the need for organised shots and more natural, unobtrusive ones.

The photos we have so far are stunning and we cannot wait to relive our day and see the rest. It’s so amazing to have the lasting memories and it was great to work with such a talented yet relaxed photographer. We highly recommend him!”
