We first met Radek at a wedding fayre at our venue, Mottram Hall, and from the first moment of speaking with him, my husband instantly felt a sense of trust towards him. Picking a photographer is quite personal as this person will be following you on one of the most special days of your life. We were both drawn towards how friendly and honest and Radek was and his photography expertise shone through in his portfolio and we booked him in an instant. From the moment he arrived at my (the bride) parents house, he just fit right in. A house full of excited girls, make up artist, hairdresser, florist and my dad and we didn't even notice him there. I trusted him to just work his way round the house, using what he needed to get the shots he wanted. We all felt perfectly comfortable getting on with what we needed to do, whilst Radek did the same.
During the ceremony and throughout the drinks reception, every detail was caught on camera yet with minimal staged photographs, which is what we wanted. He caught every single guest in their best light, yet natural, and really brings to life the atmosphere and the day through his photographs. He fit right in at the wedding breakfast and the evening reception and just looked like a guest - no one battered an eye lid to him being in the room. He captured every moment, from start to finish and our photo album is full of stunning pictures!
We couldn't be happier having chosen Radek to do our photography would recommend him to anyone.

We booked Radek to be our wedding photographer in summer 2015.
We were initially nervous as we had never planned a wedding before and didn't really know what we wanted from a photographer. We met with Radek who immediately put our mind at ease. His knowledge and application of photography styles were vast, after a discussion we decided on a documentary photography style. This enabled Raked to capture 'real' moments and reactions, which really gave our photos something special.
Radek arrived early on the day of the wedding and captured location and decoration shots before any guests arrived. We really value these, as it allows us to see the venue empty, highlighting all of the detail in the decoration.
On the day, Radek dressed smart casual to fit with the style of wedding, this supported the documentary style photos as he merged in with our guests. We have so many fabulous shots of ourselves, family and friends enjoying the day.
We are delighted with our wedding photographs and they tell the story of the day perfectly. We would highly recommend Radek and look forward to seeing him again in the future.

Radek was a fantastic wedding photographer. He made everyone feel at ease and really captured the special moments while we hardly noticed he was there. He was completely professional throughout the day and we were really happy with the finished photographs. We would highly recommend him for your wedding day.

My husband and I worked with Radek for our engagement pictures and for our wedding day. On each occasion, he went above and beyond our expectations. He is extremely talented and has an eye for seeing things that will make absolutely fantastic pictures. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures were both great. We are so glad that we have such gorgeous pictures to remember the most important day of our lives. He understand how important a role he is playing and he takes it very seriously. It is also clear though that he truly loves what he do. There is no one that I would have rather had capturing our wedding day!
I would absolutely without hesitation recommend him to any couple!!

We had the pleasure of Radek and his amazing photography skills photograph our wedding.
From the initial meeting, he was very calm and friendly and made us feel at ease. He put our minds at rest with any questions we had.
On our wedding day, he arrived with plenty of time before the ceremony to photograph the venue and grounds and also the groom.
He was then with us all day (not that we knew it!) and captured the most beautiful unobtrusive shots. Our photos are a perfect mix of posed group shots, creative shots and natural shots of us and the guests. They tell a story of the whole day.
Everyone at our wedding commented on how professional he was and the pictures speak for themselves. We still find ourselves browsing through them, we love them!
Thank you Radek

One of the most important parts of your wedding day is to know that you will have a photographer who will capture every moment and emotion of your special day so that you can look back and cherish the memories forever and you did not disappoint ...
We cannot thank you enough for the personal and bespoke service that you provided, you were with us every step of the way from planning and preparation to saying I do, from the wedding breakfast to the first dance and everything in between.
We are completely in love with our wedding album and seeing it for the first time was very emotional, it was everything we wanted and more and tells a true love story from beginning to end.
Once again, thank you so much, we cannot recommend you highly enough.

We simply can't thank Radek enough for the amazing photography that was captured at our wedding. We met Radek at a wedding fayre and immediately clicked with him which continued throughout the lead up to our wedding and most importantly the big day! We met with Radek a few times before the wedding which was good as it allowed us all to get to know each other a little better.
So on our wedding day we felt completely at ease with Radek which enabled him to take relaxed and natural photographs which have made a perfect wedding album! Our wedding album will be treasured forever, Radek didn't just take photos at our wedding he captured magical parts of the day that mean so much too us and we cannot thank him enough.
I have and will carry on recommending Radek to friends and family.

Radek was our wedding photographer he was so professional and friendly throughout the whole experience, from start to finish, everything was well organised and planned, we met up with Radek before the wedding to discuss plans and different options, I felt he was very helpful. We felt very comfortable around Radek and he always made us feel at ease when photographing us and our guests. Our wedding pictures are stunning and anytime I show people they compliment them. Radek is very creative and works hard to achieve stunning individual photographs.
We received a CD presented in a remarkable case with 100s of pictures to choose from, each picture was perfect, I can not recommend Radek enough for your perfect day.

I met Radek at a wedding fair. I was immediately drawn to his artistic style and high quality of work. I was so excited for him to photograph our special day!
A week or so after the wedding, my husband and I sat in the garden one evening with the laptop and went through the photos - it was such a lovely thing to do ... and I cried. Our Special Day was captured perfectly! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Radek was extremely professional and warm throughout the whole process from the initial consultation he put is at ease with his professionalism and experience. We were particularly impressed in his knowledge about Chinese weddings and the ceremonies. It was a pleasure to have him take our pictures on the day. On the actual day he also stayed later than planned and was extremely flexible in order to get the first dance shot. We received a wonderful wedding album that we will truly cherish. I would highly recommend Radek to capture your big day.

Could not recommend BeardedCamera highly enough. From start to finish professional and creative. A pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Our friends and family cannot believe how good the album is. We've been told that they've never see anything like it before.
He captured the day perfectly and we get to relive it every time we look through our amazing album.

We have been wanting to give our feedback for our experience with BeardedCamera photography for some time and are glad to finally be able to share this. In summary Radek was fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed working with him to create the types of photographs that we had dreamed of for our wedding day and they certainly came true. Although it rained on our wedding day, it did not spoil a single moment and if anything our photographs were more beautiful than we could have imagined as Radek used their artistic expertise to design some stunning photographs using the rain drops. All our guests at the wedding commented on how friendly yet discrete the photographer was during the day allowing him to capture some truly amazing moments during the day that we were really impressed by. Radek provided a wonderful service, helping us to capture some really special moments from our wedding day and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family in the future!
Thank you again.

After seeing pictures of a friends wedding we knew immediately this is who we wanted to shoot our wedding. Very professional, but easy to work with. Amazing and natural photos (hardly noticed him all day!) and captured all the key moments of our wedding in perfect style.
Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Thank you Radek for providing us with such beautiful images of our marriage last June. The day went by so quickly and there was so much to take in, but you managed to capture every moment and we will treasure those memories for forever and a day. The album you gave us was so beautiful and we have had so many compliments when sharing it with friends and family. We were both quite nervous about having so many photographs taken initially, but on the day we hardly noticed you were there and the result was hundreds of beautifully natural images which really tell our story.
Thank you so so much, Alice & Billy Barlow

Radek is focused and has a clear idea of his photography concepts and made us feel comfortable during our wedding and at times we didn't even realise he was there!
Radek is a true professional and the quality in his photos demonstrates his passion.
I recommend Radek to anyone who wants to remember their wedding through classy and thoughtful photography

Thank you so much for capturing the amazing images of our families and friends on our very special wedding day. We are absolutely delighted with all the photographs taken; they are stunning and gave us the opportunity to relive our wedding day all over again!
When we first saw our wedding album we were simply blown away, you really did capture the day perfectly. We loved the fact that the photographs were not ‘staged’ and that you managed to catch our guests unaware, resulting in natural smiles and poses. You are hard working and very professional and the service we received was amazing.
Thank you again.

Radek was our wedding photographer. I was impressed with the way he was able to organise everything on the day, dealing with everybody in a friendly way whilst making sure they were where they needed to be when they should be. Radek had some amazing and innovative ideas that I have not seen done by anybody else and as a result we got something unique and special. My wife and I were so happy with the end product and would highly recommend Radek.
Tom & Vicki O'Connor

From start to finish you were so professional and helpful, offering great ideas as well as embracing some of ours. The way you captured us with the camper van and in-and-around the town hall are going to be images that we will cherish now forever. We hoped you enjoyed it as much as we did, you were a joy to have on the day - it was almost like you were part of the congregation!
Everyone from the day has commented on how great the pictures look. We really can't praise you enough.
Thank you so much, and good luck in the future.
Mark & Sian Higginson

Radek was friendly, enthusiastic and helpful from the first contact. After open discussions about what we wanted the day itself went perfectly. He was barely noticeable during the ceremony and so easy to work with for the following posed photos. He was a joy to have there on the day, and helped make our day so special. The photographs were beautiful, and the wedding album that was designed for us was nothing short of amazing and gorgeous. The way it was designed was unique and so much more than just pictures in a nice album.
Many thanks for such a beautiful way to remember our day.
James & Jenni Newbert

We just wanted to say a huge thank you, we love our sublime photographs, you've capture our wedding journey throughout the day and evening, presenting amazing photographs from modern to traditional.
We were so impressed by the quality and the creativity of the photo's and we enjoyed having you there on our special day, the service was exceptional and friendly and you tailored to our needs.
We will treasure the moments forever and with the help from BeardedCamera we can now look back at the day through a beautiful and professional album and DVD.
We couldn't of asked for better, thank you!

Radek was professional, efficient and really creative in taking our wedding day photos. He has documented our wedding day memories with beautiful and inspiring photos for the whole family to enjoy. We would highly recommend him to friends and family and plan to book them for future family events going forward.
For some striking, effortless and picture perfect photos, I would also recommend booking a session following your wedding day, where you meet with Radek again in your wedding outfits; this allowed us to be really creative with our photo's with out the worry of ruining you dress and the outcome was fantastic!
Stephanie & Ahmed Al-Talib
Moorside Grange Hotel, Stockport
BeardedCamera photography were exceptional and professional, the pictures and album were far beyond our expectations. As well as the usual 'posed' pictures that were wonderfully done, the less formal pictures were outstanding documenting every aspect of the day and most of the time we were completely unaware we were being photographed as he blended into the background as not to disrupt the proceedings.
We have been married for 10 months now, and not a week passes that we do not look at them and see the day exactly as it happened. We can highly recommend him as not only excellent photographer producing very high quality work but also as very genuinely nice person that was a pleasure to have at our wedding.

Ged and I would just like to say a big thank you for all the work you put into our wedding storybook album. We are absolutely delighted with it as were all our friends and family. The DVD was also superbly put together.
Thank you for your professionalism in putting it all together and will be recommending you to all our friends!! Thank you so much. Hope to see you again soon.

Let BeardedCamera do his stuff and you will not regret it! Our pictures have turned out amazing. We had such a fabulous wedding day, and felt confident we were in good hands with Radek. We look back over our pictures and the memories have been caught perfectly. Amazing quality that didn't eat into our budget, which we still can't believe.
Paul and I just want to say thanks to you for your professionalism and personal approach.

From the first phone call to the day we collected the finished album Radek was amazing. All our friends and family commented on how professional he was on the day and everyone we have shown the album to think its wonderful. I have already recommended Radek to friends and would highly recommend them to everyone. I love every single photo they took, and to have the candid photo's too is just brilliant.
I actually felt sad the day we collected the album as they had become like friends to us and it was like saying goodbye. Thank you so much for helping create so many happy memories for us to cherish and look back on.
Nicola & Jamie Chadwick

We have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.
All the best for the future. Once again thank you so much.
