Bex + James


James was fantastic - professional, friendly and organised and made our day so special! Our guests loved the "Hoofpics" vintage horse box photo booth and the rustic lettering looked amazing!

Thank you 1st Class Weddings - you were such a fun part of our day!

The overall experience with James and his lovey wife was amazing, James made me feel really at ease from the moment that I turned up to the venue and his presence during the whole day put everyone at ease.

I don’t usually like having my photo taken but with James he just made everything feel seem easy.

They even upgraded us to the horse box photo booth so we could have a photobooth outside during covid restrictions which made the evening absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough good things about them both and I would highly recommend.

I’m so glad I found James online. His photographs are incredible and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. He even included our family pet.

I instantly felt comfortable with James when I met him on the wedding day, he isn’t one of these photographers that makes you feel uncomfortable or awkward.

Thank you for being part of our day and for making the memories come to life.

I couldn’t recommend James enough

Aga + Kyle


From the moment James arrived at our venue we knew capturing our wedding day memories were in good hands. James was professional, friendly, approachable and walking in with his eye and attention to details he’s managed to turn our half ideas into magical moments. He was so much more than a photographer and hiss experience and expertise shone throughout the day.

We are so grateful for all the help and going above and beyond to not only capturing our day but helping to make it as perfect as it could be.

We used James at 1st class for our wedding videography - we got married during Covid and were only allowed to have 15 guests, however we could live stream to our guests who couldn’t be there. James provided the livestream and sent us our wedding video within a week of the wedding and it is just beautiful, the way in which it captures our day is just amazing. A lovely momento of our day that we will cherish forever.

Highly recommend 1st class!

WEDDING - Chicheley Hall

Firstly, ALL of our suppliers were amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any of them, but given the circumstances the one I’m most grateful for was our videographer. Due to budget we almost didn’t have one but I love a wedding video so we kept looking (and ditched the photo booth) and were able to book @1stclassweddingphotography 🎥 and thank goodness we did! As the COVID situation got more serious in the lead up to our wedding we sadly had quite a few guests who were unable to join us. Then on the day of the wedding we were told we could only have two witnesses present for the ceremony. James and our venue worked quickly together to set up a live stream of our ceremony to a screen in the main hall (where our ceremony would originally have taken place) for all of our guests, plus an online live stream for the guests who couldn’t make it, and unmanned cameras for the actual wedding video! Whilst this wasn’t the original plan, many of our guests said it was better as they could see our faces during the ceremony and not just our backs! #marriedmay

WEDDING- WHite Horse

Tea Green

We had chosen a very Christmassy theme and had lots of personalised bits we wanted to have photographed. I am someone that is very organised and a control freak, however James had everything organised and captured everything without me having to think. I had a list of the group shots I wanted and that was it. The rest was James. Whilst waiting for our photos, I was worried that certain things hadn't been captured as the day just flew. When we received them, I was shocked, he had captured everything! I hadn't even realised he was there for most of the photos! He caught perfect moments of me walking down the aisle to my husband and his reaction also. I would recommend James over and over again! He's incredible and a lovely man which makes it even better!

James was the photographer at our wedding on Saturday 1st February 2020, I usually hate phots of myself but can honestly say I love every picture that I have got back. I knew James was good but not that bloody good! He really captured our day perfectly, I have no end of comments on how lovely and professional he was and me and my husband see our 'mini photoshoot' as one of the best memories of the day. I couldn't recommend James enough and the value for money is exceptional. I have even had random people message me on who our photographer was. If that isn't a compliment then I don't know what is!

We would highly recommend James as a wedding photographer, we were thrilled with the pictures we received, James did a great job, he was very friendly and professional, our guests commented on how nice he was, and how lovely our pictures are. Thank you once again for capturing our day so perfectly.

James was the photographer at our wedding on Saturday.. He was absolutely great all day. All the guests thought he was brilliant too! We asked for a few pictures for the Monday as we were going to see family that couldn't attend and we got a preview of beautiful photos on the Sunday. I would highly recommend James to anyone! Thank you for being part of our wedding day.

Below are some more reviews from previous clients.

“Richie and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for capturing our day in such a beautiful way. We are absolutely overjoyed with the photos and have received so many lovely compliments from family and friends already. People have said how discreet you were and they didn’t realise you had captured them at all on film.

When I saw the pictures you had taken of my dad I felt all the emotion of the day again because you captured his anguish and sorrow that showed what a difficult day it was for him but also how proud he was to walk me down the aisle.

Thank you once again. Not only do we have some beautiful memories but we get to relive them through your photos.”

With our best wishes

Mandy and Richie
