Suzy Wimbourne Photography Buttonhole

S.W.P Presents Bee & Buttonhole

We commissioned North West based Artist Victoria Clare Gray to design the Bee & Buttonhole logos for S.W.P. 

The Buttonhole is based on the Red Rose of Lancaster: the city and university where we, Suzy and Alex, met. 

In addition to the buttonhole you will also see our very own Manchester Worker Bee around the site. We started S.W.P in 2011 and have been very proud to call Manchester our home city since then.

We deliver an experience that honours the significance of your wedding day and we work tirelessly to produce photographs full of emotion. You can trust us to faithfully document your wedding day and to capture beautiful and effortless portraits of the two of you together.

Behind the scenes we might make it look easy but every aspect of our wedding photography service has been carefully thought out and efficiently put together and we continue to innovate and improve our service. The work begins long before your wedding day and continues after it in order to provide you with the very best on offer.

Our wonderful couples have helped shape our brand’s identity over the years and it is with thanks to them that the majority of our bookings come from word of mouth. We believe this is a testimony to the high quality of wedding photography we provide.

Testimonials

 

We don’t have words that describe how happy we are with the pictures so far, I was looking at them for a solid 4 hours. I know for a fact there isn’t anybody else out there that could have done what you both did for us. Especially the photos in the custard factory it was nice to get away from it all and share that 15 minutes alone with you both ... Will be doing lots of reviews when we leave from Cornwall and I’ve already had people asking me for your details. You are both super talented in every way possible and one of our favourite memories of the wedding is having you both there!
— Shanna & Aaron - Birmingham, October 2017
It’s taken me a little time to write this review because words cannot express the gratitude my wife and I have to Suzy and Alex for helping make our special day. From the first communication with Suzy and Alex to the delivery of the final picture they both showed a very professional approach to their role while also bringing an air of calm and organization to the day.
Both Suzy and Alex were so personable and it was an absolute pleasure to have them with us in the morning. At no point did we ever feel they were disturbing or in the way, they went about their business and delivered absolutely stunning pictures.
One of my favourite parts of the day was Suzy on her boombox organizing everyone into place for certain pictures. A very organized approach.
Two of the nicest people you could ever meet and our wedding would not have been the same without them.
The delivery of the pictures was professional and extremely quick, I think we got our first sneak peek pictures within two weeks! Needless to say the pictures were phenomenal and really captured the feeling of the day allowing us to have these for a lifetime and look back with fond memories.
A final thank you to you both for being so amazing and if I could give anyone looking at this page some advice, it would be book them now, it’s the best decision you’ll make!
— Joe & Abbie, Kent, August 2017

Charlotte and Jim - Suzy and Alex, we just can’t thank you enough for both the photos and the music on Saturday! You both made our day truly magical and it wouldn’t have been the same with you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us create the most amazing memories! Charlotte and Jim Xx
— Charlotte & Jim - Lake District, February 2017
Hi Suzy, sorry this has taken a couple of days - I have been trying (and failing) to find the words to do justice to such gorgeous pictures. You’ve captured the entire day perfectly, and so many monuments that we had forgotten about (particularly the one of me and my bridesmaids with those shot bottles!! 😂😂) thank you SO SO much, I hope we can buy you and alex a thank you drink in the not too distant future! xxx
— Amy & Nick - Yorkshire, June 2017
Suzy and Alex, what can we say...the photographs you have uploaded so far have completely blown our expectations! They are utterly amazing and stunning and you have captured all the emotions from our special day. They are truly beautiful and we will be forever grateful for your kindness and patience with us. These are photos that will bring us joy and happiness for many years to come. Thank you. Faye and Tom xxxx
— Faye & Tom - Hitchin, July 2016


Suzy and Alex photographed our wedding at Carden Park last week and they were absolutely amazing. Suzy spent the morning before the wedding with me whilst I was getting ready, and alongside taking the photos she went out of her way to help with anything we needed, getting us drinks and generally making sure we were okay. Similarly Alex spent the morning with my husband and went above and beyond in making sure he felt comfortable. Throughout the day they were constantly taking pictures. They were organised and efficient but were in no way intrusive. Our guests consistently commented on how amazing they were and Suzy was even offered a job by one of them! Knowing we were going on our honeymoon they put a selection of pictures up for us to enjoy and we think they speak for themselves - absolutely stunning. We are so excited to see the rest of them soon. Anyone looking for wedding photographers should look no further than these two.
— Siobhan & James - Cheshire, September 2016
Suzy and Alex did an absolutely amazing job of our wedding photography. It was great to have two photographers to get different perspectives - Suzy came to me on the morning to photograph the bridal party getting ready, while Alex went to see the groom to capture him getting ready and guests arriving.
Suzy and Alex were happy to discuss different pictures that we wanted and took on board our ideas. Suzy also did a pre-wedding shoot which was great to get an idea of what our wedding photos would be like but also to give us a chance to tell Suzy more about our wedding and our relationship.
Loads of guests commented on how good they were at getting everyone into position whilst also being really unassuming. The more formal photo taking lasted a perfect amount time and Suzy and Alex made us and our guests feel at ease.
As for the photos themselves - they were absolutely stunning! So creative and natural looking but also with a fun and relaxed vibe. We got all the shots we wanted and so much more! - and we were able to view them all within a couple of weeks of the wedding.
Would certainly recommend Suzy and Alex!

Suzy and Alex are two absolutely wonderful and talented people. We were lucky enough to have not only their incredible photography skills, capturing all of our memories effortlessly and in such a discreet way, we were also privileged to have them perform their musical talents while they played during the evening! I would wholeheartedly recommend Suzy Wimbourne Photography to all of my friends and family, we cannot stop looking at all of the beautiful photographs and our memories have been captured so perfectly. As we had an intimate wedding it was such a relief that not only were our photographers so talented but also such genuinely great people, everyone at our wedding loved their company, as did we! I know our day wouldn’t have been the same without them as they helped ensure everything went perfectly for us. Thank you so very much to you both!
— Siobhan & Tony - Bordeaux, September 2015

Suzy and Alex in 3 words; friendly, professional and enthusiastic! From the very beginning, Suzy was full of great ideas and enthusiasm when discussing the photos for our wedding. On the day, the energy continued and we were delighted with the photos they took. We would definitely recommend these guys, they’re great!
— Rhian & Ivan, Imperial Hotel, Llandudno, June 2014

My husband and I cannot recommend Suzy and Alex enough. Not only are they incredibly professional and fantastic at what they do, they are two of the nicest people making you feel so relaxed on your wedding day. I have read another post about inviting them round for dinner after and I know exactly what they mean - its like having your good friends with you on the day. The photos are out of this world, so creative and fun, everything we could have wished for. Don’t hesitate to book these guys now......LIKE RIGHT NOW!
— Charlie & Patrick, Cheshire, May 2016
Suzy and Alex, a huge thank you to you both for being such stars! We absolutely love the photos but what’s more it was a pleasure to have you there on the day... it was like having 2 extra friends join the party! We loved your efficiency and organisation - You put everyone at ease with your relaxed style and I think that shows in the photos! Amazing work! You captured the day perfectly and we shall treasure the photos!
— Zoe & Markus - Surrey, April 2017
Suzy and Alex captured our day perfectly! They managed to capture pictures of things we had no idea they were even there for. When everything goes so fast on the day, they capture everything you miss or forget. All our pictures are beautiful and their style is so efficient but really puts you at ease. Suzy somehow manages to get everyone where they need to be without any effort! Not only are they amazing photographers, but a great help to have on the day. When we were frantically looking for scissors, Suzy turned up with a pair, and Alex with a pen knife! We’ve had so many comments on how lovely the pictures are and we absolutely recommend you have Suzy and Alex at your wedding
— Roxy & Ric - Lake District, October 2016


Suzy, the photographs are truly amazing! Some of them left us speechless! You and Alex were a huge part of our day and have made us so happy with everything you have given us.
From Alex helping out with the boys on the wedding morning to you taking care of 4 blubbering bridesmaids, you worked so hard and deserve a massive amount of credit!
I know a lot of people at the wedding thought you and Alex were incredible and want to use you both as their family photographers! I am sure we will see you both again soon!
— Emma & Ben, Venice, Italy, August 2013
Suzy and Alex - you were both absolutely fantastic on our wedding day and we couldn’t love our photo’s more - all 600+ of them! I hate having my photo taken, but you totally put us at ease and captured our day perfectly. The photo part of weddings is something we both groan about normally, but you blended into the background for most of the day and we were surprised how many fab photo’s you took without us even noticing! Thanks guys - you were brilliant! xx
— Kay & Craig, Bradford, June 2014
Suzy & Alex were both a delight to work with. They were very helpful in the run up to the wedding, taking time to go round the venue before the big day, as well as discussing logistics and photography details on the phone. On the day itself they were perfect. The photos they took were absolutely beautiful and they made it so easy for us to enjoy our big day. We’d thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer.
— Hannah & Josh, Bedford School, July 2015


We are both gobsmacked at just how beautiful the pre-view pictures are, you have captured the day perfectly and the shots are amazing - thank you.
Both of you were so great on the day, everyone commented on how good you were even before you had given us any pictures! I am very pleased you were welcomed by my family and friends and felt comfortable around them during the day.
You taking our shots really added to our wedding day experience, you made us feel very relaxed and confident in what you were doing. We feel very lucky to have found you, not surprisingly via recommendation which will be very forthcoming by us and anyone who attended the wedding - I expect you’ll be down south more often!
Looking forward to seeing the other shots in due course.
— Sally & Ashley, Leez Priory, Chelmsford, July 2014
Suzy and Alex provide a perfect package because, not only are they great professionals who know their field well, they listen and they clearly love what they do. Before the day itself, we were lucky enough to have a pre-wedding shoot where we were put at ease and tried out ideas and poses and Suzy took time out to see the venue with us.

When the big day came, Suzy was unobtrusive while we got ready and captured all the action. She helped to keep the bridal party calm and even helped us to work out our timings! We loved the fact Alex was able to be with the groomsmen while they got ready too.

Our family and friends have all mentioned how great the two were at organising the guests and getting the shots while being friendly and approachable. The photobooth was a fantastic addition to the day.

Suzy and Alex really did think of everything- they even managed to retrieve our first cork as a married couple from our wedding car!

The photos really do speak for themselves... Thank you so much for everything you’ve done
— Kat & Matt, Adlington Hall, Cheshire, August 2014
Well what can we say, it was a joy to have Suzy and Alex there on the day and we would absolutely recommend them to everyone!

Not only did they take fantastic photographs throughout the day but they are also two of the nicest people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting, so really, it pretty much just felt like having two more friends with us on our wedding day!

We’ve nicknamed them ‘photography Ninjas’ as we knew they were always there, poised to capture our day but we never felt that they were imposing at all and they just blended in perfectly. We didn’t worry about the photographs at all throughout the day as we trusted them completely and knew that they would capture it in exactly the style we wanted – natural and bright, and their photos really do depict the whole feeling of happiness throughout the day. Absolutely fab!
— Helen & David - Cheshire, June 2015

Suzy & Alex these are so amazing!! You have both been so brilliant through the whole experience. I was just about to get the post – wedding / back to work blues but seeing these has been like reliving the entire day.
THANK YOU!!!”
— April & Dave, Clandon Park, Guildford, April 2014
Amazing!!! Suzy and Alex are such an absolute pleasure to have as photographers. The photos speak for themselves but I would recommend them simply for being lovely people to have at your wedding. Nothing is too much trouble and they are genuinely stars.
— Lorna & Andrew - Cheshire, June 2016


We chose Suzy and Alex to photograph our Wedding day after experiencing them at my brothers wedding, they were so impressive on that day that when it came to ours, we knew exactly where to go and they didn’t fail to impress!

From start to finish we couldn’t have been happier with their service and style and will not hesitate to recommend them to absolutely everyone.

After booking, we decided and were recommended by friends to have a pre-wedding shoot. We spoke to Suzy and she was very enthusiastic and accommodating about it. We organised the shoot and it was exactly what we needed. Suzy was very calming and fun, which really put us both at ease. We tried different poses and styles and Suzy got to know what we were comfortable with and what we weren’t . When we got our photos back from the big day it was clear she had taken all of this on board.

Leading up to the wedding day, we gave Suzy a list of the family/formal photos and also showed some photos styles we really liked on Pinterest, which she worked into the photos on the day.

On The big day, Alex came to our flat to Nick and the Groomsmen and Suzy went to the Hotel to Stacey and the Bridesmaids. They were both so friendly and calming on the day, completely un-intrusive and caught some great moments getting ready. When we came to the formal photographs, everything went completely smoothly and Suzy and Alex have a great knack of keeping things fun and not feeling like a role call. Suzy even managed to get a bus driver to let us on the bus for a few quick snaps! Then in the evening they set up the photo booth which was great, everyone had some really fun photos.

We are so happy and impressed with the Photographs, Suzy and Alex managed to capture our day excellently. They were both so friendly and fun but the results so how professional they are. They captured the day, using the venue and surroundings to take some absolutely amazing photos. They were so accommodating to what we wanted and it really felt that the photographs were suited to us rather than to the style of the photographer - which we have seen by other weddings photographers. We highly recommend Suzy and Alex and can’t praise them enough, a fantastic duo! It was our absolute pleasure to have them there on our day!
