“Well where do I start!? Firstly if you are reading this wondering if you should have Joshua Wyborn as your photographer… Stop! Email him NOW then come back and read the rest!
If you have done the above then congratulations you have made the best decision for your wedding day yet! Thank me later ?
I came across Joshua Wyborn through Facebook (I apologise in advance for full naming him throughout this, but Joshua Wyborn is a household name for us) as soon as I saw his work I was blown away… It was exactly what we wanted! We had heard so many people saying they hated the photographs of their wedding and could think of nothing worse than being stood for hours with fake smiles especially on your wedding day! After all, all you have after the big day is those photographs… They need to be special! His pictures were natural, classy and really capture the moments! I emailed straight away and as soon as we spoke to him we knew he understood exactly what we wanted and was on the same wavelength as us… It was a no brainer!
Joshua Wyborn kept in touch through the the whole process checking everything was ok, he was super professional and approachable it was very comforting to know he was always there to answer those weird questions that pop into your head at 3 o clock in the morning while you should be sleeping! I must say there were many times he got random texts from me such as “arrrrggghhh I get married in 6 months” he was always there to say “it will be fine” sometimes that’s all you need!
We met up with Joshua Wyborn to go through everything and it really was one of the easiest “wedding to-do’s” he totally got where we were coming from, the style of the wedding, our personalities etc…. we knew it was one less thing to worry about.
The day before the wedding we were at the marquee doing all the decorations and in walks Joshua Wyborn, he had came out to check he knew exactly where the venue was, in all honesty it was just like one of our friends had arrived, he always has a joke or two to crack … we threw some of our decorations at him to get started on… Truth be told he is fairly good at the old Pom Pom making ?.
So the day arrived and Joshua Wyborn was on time looking very dapper and made me feel at ease immediately. Our 2 year old daughter took a shine to him too posing like crazy for the camera which she usually hates! Joshua Wyborn captured those moments throughout the morning of us all getting ready perfectly, everything is a blur to me so it is really special to have those moments documented. He takes pictures without anyone noticing and really fitted in with us crazy lot that morning! It honestly didn’t feel like I had a photographer there it felt like my friend was just enjoying the morning with me!
During the day all our guests commented on how lovely Joshua Wyborn was and how they actually thought he was another guest! He stayed until around 9.30pm or possibly later and we were genuinely sad that he left! We told him he should have ditched the car and stayed to party with us (without the camera) unfortunately he was working the next day so couldn’t.
The following day he began posting sneak previews of our pictures and we were blown away! You have no idea how many people have commented on them and want to get married just to have him as their photographer and I can’t blame them!! It wasn’t very long before we had access to our online gallery where we had a whopping 1028 pictures!! Each and every single one made us smile and remember such special moments that we had already forgotten about!
I am forever thankful to Joshua Wyborn for all he has done and not just the photography, he really is an awesome human being and a true gentleman to boot. Dan and I both agree that we couldn’t have chosen better and it truly felt like we had a second best man on our special day. Words won’t do his service justice, believe me you won’t be disappointed! We adore this guy and you will too! Dan and I wish him all the luck in world with his career (although we know he won’t need it) Thank you again Mr Wyborn we truly love you!!!”
