Let me tell you about my friend Antony Burdett-Clark.
I am very lucky to work alongside many brilliant wedding suppliers including some very talented photographers. Today I’d like to put the spotlight on one of them ~ the wonderful Antony Burdett-Clark the owner of Lightbox Studios.
This picture is one of my all-time favourites taken by Antony at Amy and Matt’s Wedding in 2013. It really captures an amazing moment that encapsulates my drive to make weddings all about the couple.
I first met Antony when I was the DJ at The SuperBowl in Millbrook around 1996 and we renewed our friendship when we found ourselves booked for a SuperBowl colleagues wedding in 2010.
It was Antony who persuaded me to enter the Hampshire Wedding Supplier Awards and you may have seen the wonderful testimonial he wrote for me CLICK HERE
I was honoured to write a testimonial for him as part of his entry to the Awards ~ and here it is …
As a supplier of music, master of ceremonies and DJ services at weddings I have a unique view of what happens from about two hours before the ceremony until after the last dance. This means I have an amazing insight into what helps create a great wedding – a fantastic photographer is right at the heart of this and the photographer I’m writing this testimonial for is one of the very best.
A photographer captures images, a wedding photographer has to do that and so much more. I’ve had the privilege to work alongside this photographer on several occasions and seen the effort, passion and love that goes into their work – nothing is too much trouble in their quest to give their couples the best experience possible while capturing the special moments.
This photographer puts people at ease quickly and creates a great atmosphere, that’s fun to be part of it.
What’s best for the couple is paramount and being prepared to “go the extra mile” for them is normal. This isn’t a photographer who can’t wait to get away as soon as possible.
They are always keen to understand the requirements of the other suppliers working at the wedding so, for example, delivering the couple to the wedding breakfast on time is never a problem.
We’ve worked together at weddings where “family issues” were a possible concern and they have made sure that everybody was kept happy and had a great day. You only have to look at this photographers pictures to realise they have great technical ability and a real eye for a perfect picture, but their ability goes beyond this. They are a real “people person”, making couples and their friends and families relax in front of the camera and enjoy the experience of being photographed.
Most importantly they love what they do, they love their couples and their couples love them.
I’m absolutely delighted that Antony Burdett-Clark won the award for the Best Wedding Photographer.
I’m really looking forward to the two weddings we are working on together next year.
