Amanda & Phil (October 2013 - Lympne)
Emily and I are so impressed with the photos taken for our wedding on 7th Sept. They captured so many different elements whether it was the variety of formal and informal shots, or the range of backdrops for our couple shoots. They are very professional and we are so pleased that we chose you to take them. They have received many compliments, and are always enjoyable to look through! We happily recommend you.
Sam & Emily (September 2013 - Margate/Broadstairs)
Hi Lucy, We received the disc last Thursday and love the photos. It's so nice to see all the things we missed on the day and all the natural photos of everyone enjoying them selves. Thanks again as I chose you because of how natural the photos looked rather than being staged and they are exactly how we wanted them be.
Matt & Jo (September 2013 - Oakwoodhouse Maidstone)
Lucy, what can we say we received the photo DVD yesterday and we are blown away, the photos are just perfect we couldn't have asked for more. The formal pictures of the groups etc are absolutely lovely, but more than anything we wanted the day to be captured as naturally as possible and the candid shots you have got have done just that. For anyone getting married and thinking of a wedding photographer, look no further you wont regret hiring Lucy.
Katie and Glyn (August 2013 - Rowhill Grange)
Hi Lucy, we just want to say a huge thank you! We received our wedding photos today and they are beautiful. Such a lovely reminder of our special day. Thank you for being so patient on the day and managing to capture some memories that we will treasure forever. We love every single photo!
Stacie & Grant Pollard xx (August 2013 - Broadstairs)
Anthony and I would like to say a huge thank-you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. We are over the moon with our photographs as they are a lovely memento of a brilliant day! Neither of us particularly enjoy having our photos taken, although you made us feel at ease during the formal shots and you managed to take some fantastic natural shots without us noticing. I really love the photos of me laughing during the speeches! Thanks again.
Sarah & Ant (August 2013 - Archbishops Palace Maidstone)
Hi Lucy, We just wanted to say massive thank you. Your hard work has allowed us to re-live our very special day. You have done a fantastic job. We just love the photos. You captured everything so brilliantly. Also you are lovely so it was just a pleasure having you there. We really can't thank you enough!
Lucy and Jon xxxx (July 2013 - St Augustines Priory)
Hi Lucy, we had a wonderful honeymoon with glorious British seaside weather! We arrived home yesterday very late exhausted but just had to sit up until gone midnight looking at your photos. They are amazing, we absolutely love them, thank you sooooo much Lucy x
Mr & Mrs Meech x (July 2013 - Minster on Sea)

Thanks again Hayley and Brett xxx (July 2013 - Folkestone)
I'd just like to write and say what fantastic pictures you took for our wedding. Heather and I have had so much fun looking through all the memories you have helped record. The photos are fantastic and have really captured the feel of the day. You fitted in so well with our time schedule and our events. All our guests commented on how friendly and professional you were. We could not be happier.
Regards, Liam (June 2013 - Knowle Country House)
Thanks for the photos, they're beautiful! You even managed to make it look sunny! And they arrived the day after we got back from our honeymoon, perfect! x
Chiara & Luke (June 2013 - Chilham)
Hi Lucy, We received our disk with the wedding pics on, it was waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon which was a lovely surprise. We absolutely love them, so many lovely pics, as expected the sunset ones on the beach are my favourite they are beautiful! Thank you so much for your time on the day, you were very professional & we love the photos.
Kirsty & Chris x (June 2013 - Whitstable)

We've just got back from honeymoon today to find our photos waiting for us. Thank you so much - they look great! It was lovely to see photos of from before I arrived, and all the little details like the rings on the cake stand. As for the shots on the bouncing pillows - they're hilarious!
Thanks again and best wishes
Helen and James (May 2013 - Hop Farm)
Nick and I wanted to thank you so much for the photographs of our wedding. We absolutely love them. I am a real fan of natural shots and you've captured so many of our day. We've had so many compliments from those that we've shown our photos too and we can't wait to get some printed and put up around the house. One of the things that we noticed and were very impressed with when looking through, are all the photos you took that we didn't even realise you were taking at the time! There are photos of my Dad and he keeps saying "I don't remember her taking that, or that"! A job well done I'd say! Thanks again for capturing so many beautiful moments and we'll certainly be recommending you to others.
Charlotte and Nick (April 2013 - High Rocks)
The disk arrived this morning and even though I have massive jet lag I just had to go through them, the moments you captured are amazing and it's been fantastic to see them, especially as we had such little time on the day. I can see the tears, the laughter, the surprises and all the the little details that others would miss. I usually hate photos of myself but I love every single one you took and I don't think saying THANK YOU really cuts it xxx
Jody (April 2013 - Rochester)
Thank you to the wonderful Lucy Bateman for our fantastic wedding photos, we absolutely loved our day and have relived it today through the amazing pictures - thanks so much xx
Tracy & Richard (March 2013 - Turkey Mill)
Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you to you for your help on our wedding day. It was lovely to meet you, and I would like to confirm that we have received your CD - the photos are fabulous!! We are so pleased. We are definitely keen on getting a photo book from you (although choosing 80 may take a while ha ha!!) - please could you send us your price list?
Thanks again and we will be in touch with the details.
Jennifer and Stuart (March 2013 - Brandshatch place)
We are now back from honeymoon and have just looked through all the brilliant photos you captured for us - Thankyou so much!

Best wishes and thanks again.
Kathryn & Colin Bassett (December 2012 - Cooling Castle Wedding)
Thank you for delivering the disc with our wedding pictures on so promptly. We are delighted with the images you captured of the day and can't wait to see our finished album. You were always extremely polite and efficient from the first phone call to the day itself. On the wedding day you were friendly and approachable but worked unobtrusively so that you managed to take some beautiful candid shots of the ceremony and guests. They are images we will treasure.
Thank you again for all your hard work - we will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer in the future.
Best wishes, Sarah and Chris (October 2012 - Wellington House, Canterbury)
Lucy, thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication and creativity in capturing our big day on Friday 5th October 2012. The photos greatly exceeded every expectation and every single one is of the highest quality. Your professionalism, politeness and friendliness during the day was also impeccable, and we are both so relieved we made the right choice in having you as our official photographer. You are very talented and should be recommended to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Thank you again. All the best, Phil and Becky Potter xx (October 2012 - Dover)
Thank you so much for taking beautiful pictures of our wedding.
Peter & Christine (October 2012 - Bexleyheath)

Sara and Chris xx (September 2012 - Sevenoaks)

We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.
Claire and Jonathan x (May 2012- Westerham)
Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer on the biggest and most special day of our lives. You made both of us, our bridal party and our guests feel at ease. The photos you have taken are amazing and we're finding it very hard to choose some for our wedding album as there are just so many ones we like. Many of our guests have seen them too and are equally impressed with them.
Love, Emma & Will (May 2012 - Maidstone)
Thank you so much Lucy for our amazing wedding photographs they are absolutely perfect. So happy to come back from our honeymoon to them!
Lauren & Joe (May 2012 - Folkestone)
Just wanted to add to your magnificent testimonials that you have on your website.
You did a grand job and I want to thank you for the superb photos we ended up with. I think that you got all the "traditional" shots just right but what made it for me were the un-posed, candid ones throughout the day. Particularly the one of my husband in relaxed mode (at last!) and one of Dan looking round when Jo came into the church - just beautiful.
So add these comments and I'm sure people will flock to you for their photo's. Good luck in your future business - you are a clever lady and know exactly what you are doing.
Julie Weatherall (Mother of the bride!) (May 2012- Faversham)
In years to come when we show our kids and grandkids photos of our wedding day I'm so happy to have the collection of images that Lucy captured of our day to look over. Each one sparks a conversation and captures a moment. We love them so much, I think I've looked at them 20 times already. Lucy is professional, talented and moved round the room like a ninja! We hardly noticed she had taken most of the pictures we had.
Thank you so so much,
Hayley & Steven xx (May 2012 - Folkestone)
We have just received our pre-wedding shoot CD and love the photos. We just wanted to say a big thank you for making us feel relaxed on the day, despite the fact we were so nervous! We loved every minute of it and we cannot wait for you to photograph our big day next year! Family and friends have been looking through the pictures and have all commented on the quality and colours.
Ebru and Andrew (April 2012 - Folkestone)
Thanks for the disk! We absolutely love the pictures and everyone has said how you've really captured the day!
Thank you so much! X
Dave & Adele (April 2012 - Chartham Hatch)
We have just got back from Mexico and have seen the photos. They are fantastic! Thank you soooo much - you did an excellent job! :)
Lucy & Lee (March 2012 - Faversham)
Just thought I would contact you to say thank you so much for everything. I have already gone through the wedding photos a few times with various family members and they still look so special and amazing! You have done a fantastic job at reflecting the day. We loved the posed shots as well as the candid ones. The day was truly brilliant and you have given us those memories to look back on in great quality for a lifetime.
Tom and Stephanie Gibson (March 2012 - Rye)
The photographs are beautiful! You were utterly wonderful and took some truly fantastic shots. I can't thank you enough :-)
Rebecca & Alex (January 2012 - Sevenoaks)
Thanks so much for our photos, I couldn't be happier. You did an amazing job!
Nicola & Rob (December 2011 - Upchurch)
Thank you so much for doing our beautiful wedding photos. The photos are lovely, I was a bit worried about them as the venue was so dark, but you have done such a great job.
Thank you so much.
Jackie & Matt (December 2011 - Lympne Castle)
Firstly thank you for being wonderful on the day and getting the photo's taken quickly, efficiently and pretty unseen, you were very professional! Secondly, the photo's are absolutely lovely... there are so many nice ones to choose from!
Thanks again for being our wedding photographer!
Jo and Toby (October 2011 - Bradbourne House, East Malling)
We just wanted to send you an email to thank you for the amazing photos. It was lovely to come back from our honeymoon and relive the day all over again. The pictures are just stunning and you captured everything that we wanted. We could not be happier with the service you have provided and will definitely recommend you to anyone planning a wedding.
Melanie & Mark (September 2011 - Tunbridge Wells)
We received our wedding photographs this week and we both love the photographs. There are some really fantastic and very natural shots of everyone and I think you did a wonderful job of putting people at their ease and capturing some very special moments for us. We were particularly amused by the wonky bench in the castle grounds :o) and we really like the castle shots so thank you very much for fitting those in.
We'd be delighted to recommend your services to anyone looking for a photographer and we'll certainly pass your details on if we hear of anyone.
Many, many thanks
Derna & Phil Brown (September 2011 - Rochester)
We have looked at our Wedding pictures a thousand times already and every time they bring a smile to our face. Lucy managed to capture the whole day perfectly including all the little details are that made the day so special. We gave Lucy a huge list of shots that we wanted and on the day she managed to complete the whole list. Between us we have a lot of brother and sisters so we know that this was not an easy task. The wedding day was in 2 parts at 2 venues and Lucy shot at both places giving us a whole range of backgrounds. The photos were edited well and we love the black and white versions. One of our favourite photos is shot on the beach next to a banged up caravan - it looks very retro. Lucy blended in with our guest well and no one felt intimidated by her camera or presence. If we need a photographer in the future Lucy will be the first person we would call.
Anna and Rich (September 2011 - Whitstable)
We want to say a massive thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding. The photos really capture the day well and are of an exceptional quality. We were really pleased with how professional and friendly you were and you managed to take some beautiful photos without distracting us and our guests from our day. The CD was waiting for us when we returned from our honeymoon and there is a huge range of photos for us to remember the day by. You did an amazing job!
For the brilliant service you gave, your pricing was very reasonable and when we met with you to arrange the day everything was very straight forward with no hidden costs. We have already recommended you and will do so again, your service was exceptional.
Thanks again Michelle & John xx (August 2011 - Bilsington)
Wow! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did taking beautiful photos of our day. They were all outstanding pictures and everyone has said how amazing they are! Even when the weather decided to mess around you managed to take some fantastic shots of us. We are so grateful for the little moments you captured that would of otherwise been lost forever, the little moments we would have missed. We love the ones of our guests they all look like they had an amazing day. The mothers of the baby's you took photos of were also very happy, those memories they will keep forever. The photos didn't drag out like they can do. You were quick and always had a smile. You have inspired me to want to start a course on photography, to capture magic moment like you do and make them last forever!
I would highly recommend you to all my friends and family and anyone else searching for a photographer! Thank you once again! You are an amazing Lady!
Naomi & Ben xx (August 2011 - Sandwich)
We would like to thank you so, so, SO much for our wonderful wedding pictures. You managed to capture every moment perfectly and it's wonderful to be able to look back on the photos and remember our wonderful day! I love that so many of the shots are natural and you really made everyone feel comfortable and at ease!
We were also incredibly impressed with how quickly you got all the photos together & got them to us! Especially for how many photos there were! Throughout the whole run up to our wedding, you were so professional and helpful, and you put us at ease throughout all the preparations and on the big day.
I would definitely recommend you to anyone for any sort of occasion!
Once again, a huge thank you!
Maddie & Rob x (August 2011 - Folkestone)
We chose Lucy Bateman as our wedding photographer after we'd seen pictures of other wedding she had photographed. The pictures looked happy and relaxed yet still captured moment perfectly, and that's exactly what we wanted. We didn't want to stand around being posed for hours on end but wanted natural shots of our special day. Lucy was amazing. She captured every moment perfectly without being in the way or making anyone feel uncomfortable. The pictures we have are exactly what we wanted. They reflect us and the way we felt that day. We knew from the start Lucy would capture everything exactly the way we wanted and we weren't disappointed.
Thank you so much
Abi & Kev (July 2011 - Rochester)
We received are photos on Saturday, thank you so much they are gorgeous and thanks for coming from a long distance for us. We would definitely recommend you.
Zoe & Phillip xx (June 2011 - Brighton)
We received the disk today and wanted to say thank you very very much! They are absolutely beautiful, I am usually someone who hates having their photo taken! Sorry our youngest wasn't very co-operative, I think he was very confused that day and isn't much of a people person!
So thank you once again, you did a fantastic job and we will be sure to recommend you in the future!
Kathleen & Jamie xxx (June 2011 - Margate, Kent)
Thanks so much for the fantastic wedding photos they are amazing. I normally hate my photo taken and so does Len but you made us both feel so comfortable so thanks for that. I never thought we would get so many photos and we got the disc in no time. We couldn't have wished for a better day and better photographs so thank you so much.
Penny and Len Montgomerie (June 2011- Barham, Kent)
Thank you so much for our wedding photos. For us our wedding day was really special and looking back through the pictures we feel that you captured those special moments perfectly. The pictures are also of a very good quality and your prices very reasonable for such a high standard of work. So thanks again for all your hard work on our big day. I have already recommended you to some friends and will continue to do so.
Good luck in the future and best wishes,
Emma and Matt Kinane (May 2011- Chatham, Kent)
Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did on our wedding photos! You did an amazing range of photos, which captured the day perfectly. Everyone has always said to me the only memories you have from a wedding are your photos, and we shall treasure ours forever. I will definitely be recommending you to all of my friends getting married.
Hannah & Charlie (May 2011 - Chilham, Kent)
Hi Lucy, it was great to have you photograph our wedding day, the planning for us was quite late in the day so thank you for accommodating that. So how did the journey begin, well I created a short list of candidates, you drew top on that list on the count you shoot full frame, you provide the source digital images (key in my book, other photographers are not so keen) and your time/pricing model could not have been simpler to follow. Key for any business transaction is to keep admin to a minimum and concentrate on the product and that is exactly what you did. The pictures are great and we are impressed how you got the right colour balance in there under some of the lighting areas. An added bonus for us was that you fitted into our group really well.
Thanks again and good luck with further ventures,
Chris & Agi (April 2011 - Margate, Kent)
Hi Lucy, Steve and I would like to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on 25th March 2011, at Turkey Mill. We had the most amazing day, you made us feel so at ease, and captured all our very special moments. We received the disc very soon after the wedding and we would definitely recommend you to others! It truly was the best day of our lives and you helped to make that day even more special.
Thank you so much and best wishes, love Kate and Steve Arnold xx (March 2011 - Maidstone, Kent)
Thank you for the wonderful photos you took of our wedding. You captured moments of our day in such a beautiful way and we're both really pleased with how they have come out. Especially as the organisation on our part was lacking, but you still managed to get some lovely group shots as well as the natural ones you took of the reception. I would recommend you to anybody, you're professional but friendly and was very prompt in getting the disk to us. Good luck for the future, and you may very well hear from us again once we christen the baby.
Leasha & Damien (March 2011 - Folkestone, Kent)
I want to thank you, Lucy, for the wonderful photos you took of our girls. They were both very relaxed in your company and I love the way you have caught them on camera whilst playing and enjoying themselves. (Even our eldest who wont even look at me when I get the camera out!) The photos are very natural and show them at their best. I am particularly pleased with the number of photos you took and that they are all on disc for us to keep and to choose from. Your communication was great and we received the disc very soon after the photo shoot so thanks for that. I highly recommend you as a photographer.
Sarah and Chris Rooke (Family Photo Shoot, Sep 2010 - Whitstable, Kent)
Hi Lucy, would just like to say a huge thank you for being our photographer. The pictures you took were amazing and were everything that we asked for. The quantity of pictures that were taken meant that we had a superb range to pick from. I would definitely recommend you to others. We received the disc shortly after the wedding, which meant that we were not left waiting.
Thank you so much again, Best wishes
Mr and Mrs Sapsed x (August 2010 - Sittingbourne, Kent)
We would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to you Lucy for doing a wonderful job with our photography at our wedding. You were so very friendly and extremely professional in what you did. Your communication with us was excellent and your imagination to create perfect shots was outstanding.
We would like to wish you all the best in your future in photography and may you get the recognition that you truly deserve.
Best wishes Lucy and thank you again,
