Kind Words

Some messages we have received from our clients directly to us or that they have posted online.

From Jenny and Steven Cotton

Jenny and Steven asked me to shoot their wedding in March 2010, When the wedding came round it was a beautiful day and I had a great time with them, they made me feel very welcome on their day.

Heres what they had to say…

Hi Timm,

I know Steven’s already emailed you but I wanted to send a quick message to say a HUGE thank you for the beautiful pictures. I love every one of them and they’re even better than I imagined they would be. I really appreciate all your hard work on the day and was just amazed to see how many photos we have, even though I hardly noticed you snapping away all day. It was such pleasure to have you there, I can’t wait to fill all the wall space I can find with our photos! Thank you for being so professional and quick with all the staged photos too, lots of people have commented on how little time in took compared to other weddings they’ve been to, and how it meant more time enjoying the day. I had a lovely time looking through all your photos with my parents and they were both singing your praises and saying how wonderful they are and how nice you were and good at your job.

I’m really looking forward to getting all our lovely pictures in frames & albums, and looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Thanks again Timm, I’m sure we’ll speak to you soon anyway



From Chloe Christey – French

Chloe runs Love Vintage they create romantic, vintage inspired wedding bouquets and handmade accessories for the truly stylish bride looking for the ultimate vintage wedding. Chloe and Simon were one of my first bookings for wedding photography, they took a chance on me and for that I am very grateful, their wedding was on the 17th of October 2009 at Hassop hall.

This is what Chloe had to say about me and the day.

“One of the most daunting tasks for me when planning my wedding was figuring out how to preserve every little detail without our day becoming a commercial photoshoot with static poses and regimented photocalls. I had one wish: paparazzi-style photos, and lots of ‘em! Ok, that was more than one wish. But I was a bride after all.

I did a little bit of searching and came across a guy called Timm. An emerging photographer with a creative background and a really edgy style. One visit and we were convinced. His images capture every detail – smiling eyes, loving looks and lots and lots of fun and laughter. Quite simply, I am overwhelmed by the images he captured of our day…and I barely remember seeing him.

If you are looking for a photographer, I couldn’t recommend Timm Cleasby more.

From Mr and Mrs Mcclure

Laura and Jonathan have an unusual job that allows them to meet many great and interesting photographers. They chose me to photograph their wedding and I felt that it was a great honour and privillage. They had their wedding on a farm near wakefield. It was a fun but long day. I really enjoyed being a part of it and making some lovely memories for them. Here is what they had to say about the day, me and the items they decided on.

Thank you so much for the amazing photos you took for our wedding.

Looking through our beautiful album that you did for us made us realise how you were always in the right place at the right time and without us even knowing.

We can’t believe you managed to get a group shot of everyone who was there. That was some seriously impressive organisational skills! The thank you cards that you designed are brilliant and we’ve had so many compliments from all the guests on your handywork. We truly couldn’t have asked for more.You have given us memories that we will cherish forever so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Mr and Mrs Mcclure



Thank you so much Timm, they’re amazing!! I can’t believe how well you’ve captured exactly how it all felt….. apart from the mankini, damn those ‘best’ men.









Hi Timm,

Hope you are keeping well. We LOVE the wedding pics!!! You’ve really captured the day perfectly for us. Thank you and a big thank you for the discs and print from the pre-wedding shoot – lovely. Cheers, Jen & Rob








Hello Timm,
Just wanted to say what an amazing job you did with our wedding photos! We love them and can’t wait to show them off. After being really nervous about having my photo taken and at times quite grumpy! You were totally great with it. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable and we love the photos you took on our day. Thank you for capturing some lovely moments.

Much love,
Sal and Gav Brooksbank







Thanks Timm/Sam

Really really great photos.  Our parents love them so much.  Especially the one of Jen and her dad dancing and the one of us in the hall entrance with all the plants.  I like my rock salute photo, definitely a future facebook profile pic.

Thanks again and see you soon







Thanks Timm,

Awesome photos, we loved looking through them.  You did a great job considering the venue wasn’t the most picturesque!

Thanks so much for everything you did on the day, we didn’t even notice you were there!  I think we both got a bit caught up in it all.

Soph & Simon




These are some of the lovely comments we have had from a few of our past clients. They we’re left as part of a voting form for the wedding industry awards 2011 and we were totally blown away by what our clients had to say about us (We could only view the comments without the names of the couples who left them).

Timm was fantastic from our initial meet to the wedding day itself. He arranged a pre wedding shoot to calm our nerves in front of the camera….this really helped. On the wedding day itself Timm was with us for over hours but really never new hew was there!!! The photo’s are fantastic!!

Timm did a beautiful job on our wedding photo’s and the service was fab from the pre wedding shoot to the day and the photobooth we also hired, couldn’t recommend him highly enough

Timm Was Awesome before the wedding, He spent time with us and went to look at many different places to do test photos so we were all ready for the big day. On the day he was just fantastic he made everyone feel comfy and all our friends and family said we have the est wedding photos they have ever seen! He stayed all the way through the evening so we have an amazing selection of images of the whole event. I think he might have actually been the last person to leave the venue, Many many thanks ;o)

We were so happy with the photos taken by Timm. We wanted a very natural documentary style reminder of the day, which Timm duly provided. The candid pics of our family and friends giggling and celebrating with each other captures the essence of them beautifully.

Timm was fantastic from our first point of contact. He offered us a pre-wedding shoot as part of the package which meant that we got to know him somewhat and vice versa. My husband is usually uncomfortable in front of the camera but Timm made us feel relaxed and completely at ease. On the day of the wedding whilst remaining professional at all times it felt like we had a friend photographing us rather than ‘the photographer’. Many of our guests also made the same comment. We are absolutely thrilled with the results, we can honestly say we love every single shot and love the mix of traditional and more contemporary photographs. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Timm to anybody looking to book a wedding photographer in fact we would urge them to!

Timm Cleasby’s images from the website was enough to make him the photographer of choice for my wedding day. His pictures are contemporary and so beautiful, he understands that modern brides don’t want old-fashioned, traditional photos, and that we want to look like models from fashion / art house magazines. His direction and patience during the photos were (i’m sure) second to none! I know I wouldn’t be as pleased with the finished product if I’d used anyone else! I’d highly recommend his photographic talents to anyone else!

Fantastic range of shots.

Timm’s really contributed to making our wedding a special day. This began with the pre-wedding shoot around Nottingham where he took some amazing photos with little to work with in terms of location. This was the same on the day itself as our venue was all indoors and not particularly grand, however Timm chose some very intersting angles and shots and we are thrilled with the output. Furthermore, Timm went over and above the job we paid him for by jumping in and helping out when our DJ could not get his equiptment to work. He also stayed later than expected as a result of this lost time which we really appreciated.

Timm was fantastic….offering more than we ever expected and delivering beautiful, quality images straight after the wedding. He stayed the entire evening, even bringing his wife to help with the photobooth. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and professionalism. His calm, unassuming nature and sense of humour was very comforting and reassuring on the day. I can’t recommend him more.

I thought i had a good idea of what I wanted in terms of photographs for the wedding so I gave Timm a long list of people’s names and instructions for what I liked and didn’t like. He listened carefully to everything that I asked and carried out all of these requests on the day. It turned out that i didn’t really know what i wanted and the best photographs were the ones where Timm just captured the moment beautifully. I really appreciated the fact that instead of trying to persuade me otherwise, he took all the shots I requested and then quietly went about photographing the wedding day in a way that he knew would be effective. We have such wonderful pictures of people’s emotions and reactions- especially those that chart the highs and lows of the best man’s speech!

Outstanding – Included pre-wedding test shoot to get to know him, & another home visit pre-wedding. Went above and beyond on the day, stayed for half of evening party too as there was a live gig by the groom’s band we wanted to capture!

My Husband hates having his photo taken, i wanted the most important day of our life to be captured, i spent a long time convincing him to have a photographer and let him do the research, he found Timm’s website and loved the relaxed fun style of his pictures. We had an initial meeting with Timm and he soon put my Husbands concerns of cheesey shots to rest! we had a pre wedding shoot that put him further at ease and had a really fun time. Timm was fab on the day of the wedding, he just slotted in to the day, there was no stress at feeling that we wait around for the pictures, the guests commented on how quickly and painless the group pictures were! Timm suggested that we had a few shots done on our own whilst the guests went on to the drinks reception, this was a fab suggestion, we got to spent half an hour on our own just to share the excitement and memories of the day as the rest of the day was so busy chatting to guests we hardly saw each other. The final photos are amazing so many to choose from! after days of picking we made our selection and Timm sent through the album proof which we loved and ordered right away. The pictures captured the feel and memories of the day. Thank you Timm.

Timm was fantastic on our wedding day. We were so pleased with the amazing photographs. he took so many shots that we dom’t even remember him being around for. Totally recommend him without any reservations!

Timm was reliable, which is essential in the wedding industry. He was creative and produced a great end product.

Timm’s a courteous guy who was very attentive before and during our actual wedding, always there at the right time but bizarrely you disn’t really notice him (that’s a good thing as i’ve seen too many photographers at wedding that are always in peoples faces) then you get your photos back……stunning

Timm put my husband and I at ease from the very first meeting. He not only helped us relax in preparation for the wedding day, but he captured some beautiful images for us to cherish. On the day of the wedding Timm was exemplary – he worked well with all of our guests and was patient and helpful throughout.

amazing photos and timm was great!

Timm was just fantastic throughout, from the moment we first contacted him right up until the deliery of our wedding CD and album. Nothing has been too much trouble and he clearly has a natural talent with a camera.


I knew he was good…..too many photographers charge the earth but give a standard service as they over load themselves with work…..Not Timm

His website looked professional and his style of photography appealed to us. When we met him in person, he was friendly and listened carefully to what we wanted.

He was available at short notice and we loved his work!

He came highly recommended by some friends.

Wanted a contemporary, story-telling photographer rather than one who just took the classic, posed shots. The quality of work on the website and price charged seemed excellent value. We got exactly what we wanted.

After seeing photos taken by Timm from a friends wedding and having a consultation with him. We were completely put at ease and knew he would be the perfect choice to capture our wedding.

We had several photographers cancel on us …. the last being just a few months before the date so a friend at work recommended Timm (a close friend of her husband). We met with him and liked him straight away.

The quality of his work.

We found out about Timm through a chance recommendation from a friend of a friend, after a short telephone conversation I was sure he was right for us so booked him straight away and we are so glad we did!

after seeing his other work and the way he handled our enquiry for what we wanted o n the day

Loved his style of photography

We booked Timm Cleasby because we had seen some photos from our friends wedding and were really impressed by them. We enquired about Timms availability and from there on he was nothing short of amazing. On the day Timm took charge in a friendly and relaxed way and all we had to do was smile. He even stayed longer than arranged to get the ‘firework’ shot. Pre, during and post wedding we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

Great photos

Knew of him through friends, and non-wedding circles, booked because style and ethos was perfect match for what we wanted. Very happy because he’s really nice and an excellent photographer!

We loved his photo style and his knowledge

He was the only photographer that offered stunning, contemporary photographs as reasonable prices. His customer service and ability to confidently assure an anxious bride were one of the main reasons I wanted him to capture my big day.

we loved the pics on his website and liked him when we met him.

Three reasons – examples of his previous work are fantastic, he is great value for money and you get the a real sense that he loves his work and wants to make sure you get the best from your day.
