We highly recommend Richard as a wedding photographer! From the very start he was incredibly accommodating. He is very experienced and laid back so during our wedding, his knowledge of our wedding location and different poses kept us at ease the whole time. Very professional and helpful!

"Don’t think just hire! We approached Richard at short notice, some 3 weeks before our wedding which was Nov 7th. We had circumstances change all our plans which created chaos - Richard was personable, helpful and affordable. Richard went out of his way before, during and after. The comments from our guests both during and after were nothing but positive. Everyone was impressed, he was ‘everywhere’ and worked so very hard on the day. The sneak peaks of the photos so far have been amazing and we can’t wait to see the rest. Honestly, just a genuine man with loads of experience and it shows. Nothing was a problem - he even transported my son who was giving me away from getting ready with the grooms party back to me. We couldn’t be happier with our choice and would highly recommend!"

*Highly recommended, we used Richard for our wedding. Richard was extremely professional, great pricing, photos above our expectations and our guests were very complimentary of his services (mum thought you were the bee's knees lol). The communication before the wedding, during and after was amazing. There was absolutely no stress at all involved and Richard listened to what we wanted and certainly delivered. Loved the fact that the stress of finding a car for the day was taken away as we used Richards car. Thank you Richard for an amazing day and making everyone feel at ease.

When we met Richard he was not pushy at all, he drove over 50 minutes or more to meet us to just have a chat and show us what Richard Mockford Photography was all about! Leading up to the wedding he was easy to contact. On the day we felt very comfortable, Richard and Alyson were very accommodating to what we wanted and relaxed. We received ALL the photos of the day and night, this was awesome! The edits also look amazing 💕 and the price was very fair for the hours and quality 👌🏻 thanks Richard and Alyson for capturing the day and night!

Very happy highly recommend. Richard and his lovely wife captured our wedding. Very professional and personal not only were the photos amazing, they had great ideas for certain photos that we never would have thought to do ourselves, we had trouble paying off the remainder of our fee and Richard had no issue with me paying it off followed by a lovely surprise of him dropping of our photos and wiping the rest that we owed. We appreciate all you done for us Richard and your wife. THANKYOU

Richard was absolutely fabulous to work with from the first initial contact enquire to meeting and our beautiful day as well as all the emails in between. Was quick to respond with great information. He was laid back and even cracked a few jokes which in turn put everyone at ease. And his photos captured everything and more. I’m almost done Richard but just “one more” Thankyou ☺️
Allyson Thankyou also for being down at the ceremony and capturing the boys arriving waiting and the guests etc beautiful.
Will ad a couple of pics but not they are taken with my phone of the tv from USB so if they look blurry that’s why they are just stunning

Very professional. New what he was doing. Lovey quality photos. Couldn't be happier. Thanks Richard. 😁
Richard, you captured our special day perfectly! We loved what you did for us and can’t thank you enough. Our day was fun, relaxed and extremely memorable, we couldn’t recommend you more highly. Thank you so very much. Jo and Alex 😊
Richard and Allyson photographed our wedding and they were just so easy going and great to work with.
We got full coverage of the guys and girls getting ready, the ceremony and the reception. Not one moment was missed and now looking back on the photos they have captured every single moment of our special day. We got EVERY picture fully edited plus prints done. Richard and Allyson were very accommodating to our every need on the day and were just outstanding !! 110 % recommended😀😍
Richard recently photographed our wedding and he was such a great person to deal with on the day. He quickly got that we were pretty relaxed about everything and he was so fun and easy to work with. I normally find having photos done really awkward and uncomfortable but Richard made it fun and enjoyable. We got our photos back today and they are simply amazing. They capture our day perfectly.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer
Thank you for capturing our memories so perfectly Richard.
"They were absolutely brilliant! I couldn't fault him at all! The photos were beautiful. He made us feel so relaxed and he wasn't pushy at all, we're so glad we went with him."
"Richard delivered our photos today. I can't fault him. Service is amazing, extremely professional, organised and polite. He will go out of his way to help and make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible. My husband and I absolutely love our photos. I highly recommend Richard Mockford photography!"
"We cannot thank Richard enough for our lovely wedding photos. Richard was so helpful and so passionate with our big family and the amount of photos we had on our list.
Our wedding photos are the best memories of our wedding and Richard has done an amazing job. We will recommend him to anyone who asks us for a great wedding photographer."
" Richard, I don't have words and I don't know where to start, but I just want to tell you that the photos you and your wife did for our wedding came out far above my highest expectations! My hubby is not a huge fan of taking photos...I on the other hand, love it!!! And even though he is not always that photogenic, you guys did an amazinggggg job! He looks amazing in them...we both look amazing in them! They came out soooo beautiful! I had a few tears Thursday night, going through them (good tears, of course). Everybody loves our photos as well. Thank you so, so, so much Richard for giving us such beautiful memories of our wedding day and for making them so beautiful and perfect...because photos after all are the last thing that ppl have left after their wedding and it's beautiful memories that has been captured forever. You and your wife are amazing!!!"
"I highly recommended Richard and his wife to anyone looking for a relaxed fun feel for their wedding day. Not only are his prices unbelievable his photos and skill is amazing. received my photos this week and could not be happier for 2 camera shy people they have captured us perfectly."
For anyone looking for wedding photographers I could not recommend Richard and his lovely wife more! They made me feel very at ease through the entire process, build easy rapport with bridal party and guests alike and produce some amazing moments rather than uncomfortable staged shots. Richard Mockford Photography capture personality in each shot! Thank you so much for making our special day memorable.

Our day was relaxed and intimate and Richard took the most beautiful photos reflecting just that. They are professional and friendly and their quality of service is outstanding. We will definitely ask Richard Mockford Photography to capture our special moments in the future."

Review No2 from Samantha Rowe
I can’t thank you and Alison enough. You both captured the most important moments from our wedding and I can’t thank you both enough. Our wedding photos turned out better than I could ever have imagined. Thank you both so very much. Thank you both for getting amazing photos even in the short time frame we had due to us running behind schedule. I love looking through our wedding photos � P.S I want to do it all over again �
Review from Jules O'Driscoll 5 STAR
"I can't speak highly enough of Richard. He made our day so special, listened to what we wanted and communicated with us at every point. My hubby hates getting his pic taken and Richard was able to put him at ease and got some great natural shots. We wanted a relaxed laid back style and that's what we got. He mingled with the guests and got great pictures of everyone. Do not hesitate to hire Richard. I'm so glad I choose him"

Review from Tammy Hutchins
Photographer: Richard Mockford Photography - When you see the prices you think budget, which can mean low quality... not the case here! I hate photos... I avoid them at all cost.. but Richard was amazing. He got so many comments afterwards about how professional and warm he was to everyone. Today I picked up our photos and WOW I love them! They capture the whole day from start to finish and bring back so many memories. We had an unplugged ceremony and it was a risk... but it was worth it! Oh and he was also our chauffeur as well in his gorgeous gold jag which was included!!! Highly recommend him!!!!

Richard you are an amazing person and wonderfully easy to work with. My Husband and I are not photo people ( we normally hide as the cameras come out �) and you made it so easy to relax and enjoy the special moments.
Richard thank you so much for taking the stress out of our magical day and capturing some absolutely stunning photo's we would never have had with other photographers.

Thank you Richard and Allyson for our amazing photos! We cannot recommend you both highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and your fun, relaxed approach had everyone ease... not a forced smile in sight :)
Nadine Wilkinson reviewed Richard Mockford Photography — 5 star
We recently used Richard and his wife for our new years eve wedding. We have just collected our pictures and whilst we loved his work before, he has exceeded all of our expectations! If you are looking for a photography company with exceptional skills and amazing price LOOK NO FURTHER!!! Personally I feel really uncomfortable when taking photos and am always that person to pull a funny face, but it was hard not to smile genuinely with Richard mockford photography at the helm! They have gone above and beyond because even after all the work on the day, he has painstakingly done that bit extra and presented the photos in an album, given enlargements and also photos on a usb. If looking for a photographer, you would be silly not to use Richard and Allyson! If not for their amazing work or price, do it for the peace of mind knowing that your day is in exceptional hands for memories you will cherish for a lifetime! We cannot thankyou enough Richard and Allyson!!"
Thank you Nadine and Carl for your comments, they are soooo much appreciated.

"What a lovely husband and wife team!! Our photos are amazing! They captured all the special memories of our day (and even came to our rehearsal). From our initial meeting they were extremely professional and offered all the information about their affordable packages upfront (check out their website.... you wont regret it). They were extremely flexible and were willing to stay longer than we had planned. We were even able to borrow a video camera to film our day. We can not recommend them enough!! Thank you Richard and Allyson. Belinda and Zachary Alexander"
Richard and Allyson, you guys are incredible! Seeing our photos today we were so amazed and happy with how well you captured the moment and how beautiful our photos looked! We only got married 10 days ago and already we have incredible memories to look at. Your wedding car (beautiful gold Jaguar XJ8) and photography package is such a great idea and works so well. Thank you so much for taking relaxed yet professional images with stunning results. Keep doing what you're doing and every couple you photograph on their wedding day is going to be very happy! If anyone is reading this and unsure whether to go with Richard Mockford Photography, do it, you won't regret it. This isn't just a job to them, they do this because they enjoy it and they actually care about how the photos turn out and if you will like them. They're genuine people who are very easy to talk to and you will have no problems getting along with them. Most of all, they will make your wedding day special and you will be pleasantly surprised with how wonderful your photos are when you get them back. We are so glad we chose Richard and Allyson to be our wedding photographers. Thank you so much guys!!

Richard and Allyson; we can't thank you enough for capturing our special day exactly the way we wanted!! There was no asking us to smile or pose, no stuffiness and no extortionate bill to pay at the end. You offer a relaxed photography service that captures the most amazing natural photos and your prices are so affordable. You were both reliable, contactable and overall lovely people. You offer a great service and we will definitely be recommending you guys to future Brides and Grooms. Thank you so much, Danielle and Ryan

"Dear Richard and Allyson
I want to take this opportunity to thank you both most sincerely for photographing our special day. The weather wasn’t the kindest but my god we had fun! And you guys just made it so easy to be relaxed and at ease and there were moments I forgot you guys were there. The only reason I remember that you two were there every step of the way were because some very funny or poignant moments were captured in our photos.
Richard I’m sorry for sobbing like a baby when I saw that first photo, but that is just a testament to you for being able to bring back my memories in a rush of that perfect day.
I would have NO hesitation whatsoever recommending you both to anyone. We were getting quoted 4/5 times more by some other people and they were offering less. You have given us memories that we will keep for life now and we could not put a price on that.
Thank you once again, good luck with everything you guys do, and hopefully we get to meet again!"
-Mimi and Nick
A very delayed email to you, I'm really sorry about that. I just wanted to thank you again for your beautiful photos and all the effort you put in to get to know us, and what we wanted for our wedding day. We received some amazing photos and get lots of comments from people about the enlarged prints you gave us.
You're a superstar and a quality photographer!
Thanks for making it so easy!
