"As a little girl I always imagined that my dream wedding would look and feel a certain way, and when I look back at Nikki's photos it looks exactly as I always imagined it would, it looked perfect."

"You know you get told that super heroes wear capes.. well I truly believe Nikki should be wearing one too. We went to meet Nikki in her lovely studio, we took Jake our faithful hound. I thought he'd suss her out and after all he was our ring bearer on the day- let's see how she deals with that! So my first words to Nikki after the lovely greeting and cup of tea was I hate having my picture taken and our dog is the ring bearer so you'll need to factor that in!! Not a problem at all Jake was quite happy led on his back being stroked by Nikki! Nikki totally assured me she'd worked with people who felt exactly the same as I did and my doubts and fears faded away when Nikki explained the packages on offer, and gorgeous selection of albums offered. Nikki kept in constant contact in the lead up to the wedding offering a host of ideas and suggestions. We had a pre shot at the venue where Nikki suggested shot ideas and holds to make me feel relaxed and at ease on the day and assured me that even though my smile felt totally fake that on the day it would all be fine.....
So the day arrived and true to her word I smiled all day long not only did this super hero turn up to photograph my bride tribe get ready she totally put everyone at ease calming the atmosphere and cracking jokes stepping in when we had a slight glitch- nothing is too much trouble for this lady. One of my outstanding memories that calmed my nerves even when you have your best friends stood by your side was pulling up at the venue and Nikki's smiling face looking back at you holding an Umbrella to get you out of the car saying deep breath and giving me the thumbs up! Seriously that was the best calming tactic ever. If you're looking for a photographer that will go the extra mile, deal with high maintenance requests, be totally professional but personable then Nikki is the lady you need on your special day. A wedding is not a wedding without Nikki Kirk ....."

"To capture a special moment you need a special photographer, and Nikki is just that. From the initial meet to the final day her endless creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism entranced us and produced the most beautiful photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Her personal touches, understanding and care elevate her service to a whole new level that we didn't even realise existed. It was the best money we've ever spent and we can't wait to find another excuse to employ her services again. A truly outstanding photographer and an amazing woman!"
Tracey & Amy
"For something as special as a Wedding Day, it's important to feel that you have the right people around you, helping to make your day both memorable and uniquely you, and in Nikki Kirk we certainly found someone who fits the bill. Nikki grasped the essence of the kind of day that was important to us and captured this in some singularly unique, beautifully crafted and very special memories of a wonderful day, surrounded by those closest to us. Nikki has a warm personality and an air of quiet confidence that was very reassuring, especially on the big day itself - we knew we were in good hands! We would thoroughly recommend Nikki and endorse her as a very talented and insightful photographer.”

"The Fabulous Nikki Kirk Photography Team"
Nikki, A massive "Thank You!" to you and your team. We have had two very lovely magical weddings, it has been a real pleasure and we couldn't have asked for such an amazing team to take our wedding photos. I hope you and the team enjoy our gifts! Many thanks!"

"My fiancée and I were seeking a photographer that could not only capture the day as it unfolded but all the little elements and details that we ourselves might miss throughout the day as it occurred (guests having fun etc). We met with Nikki at her studio and were very impressed with her professional attitude and ability to make you feel welcomed and at ease. Nikki undertook a pre-shoot with us at Manor By The Lake in Cheltenham and we found her to be an exceptional photographer, she was a pleasure to be around, friendly and relaxed but very professional. She provided us with ideas for the venue and places that we ourselves had not considered or seen! She made us feel at ease always and in fact the session was good fun! She was so friendly and kind but highly efficient and professional all day.
On the big day, Nikki was the perfect photographer with a great mix of being confident (corralling all our families for the perfect group photos is not easy!) and blending into the background to get some brilliant natural shots of our guests and us. She even suggested some fun shots for groom and groomsmen which turned out fantastic and they loved. She worked tirelessly throughout the day and we received many comments from our friends and families regarding how lovely and how brilliant she was. No last-minute requests from us were too much even when it rained in the morning (she stood in it to get the perfect groomsmen shots!) .
We would highly recommend Nikki to anyone looking for a photographer as she does go out of her way and does a phenomenal job with photo quality and style being unmatched.
Not long after the big day event we were invited around to Nikki’s studio and offered the wonderful opportunity to undertake a viewing of our photos in comfort, this allowed us to relive the day we and loved every moment of it!
Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts Nikki, you’re a gifted and talented individual and we hope to stay in touch in future for when we start a family, we cannot recommend you enough."
Jason & Clare
"What a gem you are. We have loved getting to know you! You were un-noticed on the day and captured delightful moments. We hope you enjoyed the day too and thank you for all your hard work."
Sam & Tommy
"OMG where to begin... Thank you for all your support, advice and all the absolutely amazing shots. Everyone thought you were so lovely and you helped make our day so wonderful with so many happy memories."
Barry & Haden
"We met Nikki at a wedding fair and immediately fell in love with her style of photography. We were after a mixture of formal group shots and natural photos of the day, which were evident within the albums she had on display. Not only this, Nikki was very approachable and willing to discuss all aspects of our day to really understand what we were after. She came to our house for a meeting with no pressure to book her, however we both knew she was just what we'd been looking for. From our initial meeting through to our engagement shoot, the wedding day and viewing our photos afterwards she has been professional, friendly and approachable. We could not have wished for a more professional service and love our photos more and more every time we look at them. Choosing some for the album and to print is so difficult as we love them all! In addition to our positive experience, many of our guests have told us how brilliant Nikki was on the day in terms of her attitude to her work without taking over the day. At times we felt like we hadn't seen Nikki for hours, however the photos are there to prove she captured every minute without being intrusive. We would not hesitate in recommending Nikki to anyone getting married and already want her to photograph us when we start a family! Thank you for everything Nikki!"
Simon & Lucy
We first met Nikki at a wedding fair in Cheltenham, after battling through numerous other sales pitches, we took solace in Nikki's laid-back friendly approach. As soon as we met her we knew she was right for us and would fit right in with exactly how we wanted the day. Nikki was fantastic in helping us come up with ideas and knew exactly what would work. The pre-shoot helped us decide what photos we really wanted to capture on the day, some of them just wouldn't of worked with my dress, but were incredible in our casual clothes and contain some of my favourite images. On the day, Nikki really put us both at ease and it's thanks to her that we have captured some fabulous memories. Nikki is diligent, considerate, extremely accommodating and exceptional at what she does. We would highly recommend her."
Beckie & James
"Nikki did an amazing job with our wedding photos. Some breathtaking shots and Nikki is one of the nicest people you will meet. We highly recommend her and her beautiful talent. Thank You Nikki."
Jenny & Drew,
"We have been so happy with you taking care of our wedding photos, from the very beginning you have made us feel so special and your enthusiasm is infectious! My mum and dad are delighted with the photos, my mum commented on the fact that she didn't even know that half of the photos in the room, whilst she was helping us to get ready, had been taken!"
Jessica & Paul
"My wife and I would like to say a massive Thank-You to an amazing and mind blowing photographer Nikki Kirk for our brilliant wedding photos. Not only were the snaps incredible but the calm, relaxed and non intrusive way the photos were taken truly was what we had wished for. Thank you so so much for all of your hard work before, during and after our big day, the results are amazing."
Anthony & Chloe
"We just wanted to say thank you again, the pictures completely blew our minds, they are simply stunning!!"
Georgia & Shaun
"Nikki is a true professional when it comes to her photography, and not only that she loves what she does and it shines through in her pictures. I was delighted when she kindly agreed to take our wedding photos and we were thrilled to see the results. Nikki captures the small details of your wedding as well as all the major parts, and she always puts your guests at ease when snapping away! She was recommended by a friend and after meeting and seeing examples of her work we couldn’t book quick enough! Extremely friendly and professional but the bottom line is that the photographs were outstanding! Lots of positive comments from guests regarding organisation and attitude and helped contribute to a fantastic day. A huge thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly. "
Monika & Damian
"I would not hesitate to recommend Nikki as a wedding photographer. She was fantastic both on the day and in the run up and the end result was beautiful - and I normally hate photos of myself!! She dealt brilliantly with the sensitivities of the day and the run up and was professional and efficient throughout. She listened to my brief of the photos and the service we wanted and we got exactly what we asked for. Also, as a girl herself, she had lots of good advice for me (aged 40!) for how to look better in photos and reduce any problem areas (bingo wings etc!!) which was much appreciated. I was dreading seeing the photos as I normally think I look awful in photos but I really was delighted with the pictures that Nikki took. I really cannot recommend her highly enough."
Bryher & Mark
"Nikki was an integral part of our day, fulfilling whatever was required - and so much more. I absolutely recommend Nikki. The photographs are quite simply perfect. Nikki was the Superwoman of the day, with everything from sewing kits to blister plasters. Everyone went to her when they needed something. A wonderfully talented photographer combined with professionalism, friendly demeanour, and the ability to easily understand your vision is a winning combination."
Laura & Mark
"Nikki, you really know how to capture the essence of a couple on their special day. Not only are the photographs quintessentially us, it was amazing how you conveyed the storyline of a truly eventful day... the heaviest snowfall that we have had in years. And when the stress of travelling and disappointment of absent friends had lessened, your photos encapsulated the serenity and beauty of a truly winter wedding. Even though you were there to take our photos you got involved in the setting up and everything else that you could help with, as our wedding day was the day of the big white out! A third of our guests could not make it because of the snow, but Nikki you kept me calm and even fielded some of the calls so as not to upset me. You are a gem! Thank you Nikki – we love our book of memories! "
