Hi Janet,

Every single photo is stunning. You have gone above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough, there is only one problem, we now don’t have a single photo for our wall as they are all amazing and we can’t choose any.

Thank You Very Much xx  Marc and James

Dear Janet

Sorry this email has taken far too long to be sent! We didn’t realise there would still be so many things to sort out after the wedding.

Christopher and I wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks for your professional and friendly service on our wedding day.

For two people who do not enjoy being the centre of attention and certainly don’t like our photos being taken we thought you would have a huge task ahead of you.

I don’t know how you did it but I immediately felt at ease and you have a lovely way of making everything seem so effortless and seamless.

You understood and captured the formal group shots that we wanted but more importantly you captured perfectly the happy relaxed atmosphere we wanted on the day.
This shows so much in the photographs you took.

You were so efficient on the day, it was like having another friend there to share the day with us. Our family and friends have commented to us since

how professional yet friendly you were and how you made them all feel at ease.

We are both so pleased with the photographs, the black and white shots capture perfectly the dramatic backdrop of Windermere.

The shots in Broadoaks really show off the stunning music room and surroundings.

Thank you so much, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

We will enjoy looking back at the photos for years to come.

Love Victoria and Chris

Hi Janet,

Its taken me a while to get round to writing this email because Xmas got in the way but wanted to thank you for the amazing photos from our wedding.

They are perfect you have captured the day so well and we’re really pleased with them!

Kate and David

Dear Janet

Just to say thank you for everything you did for our wedding on the 27th June. The photo’s are truly lovely and really capture the spirit of the day.

You were a huge help on the day and your understated presence on the day was perfect

All the best Liz and Mark

Hi Janet,

Just to let you know the disc arrived safely and we sat down on Sunday with a bottle of champagne for our first viewing of them.

We are delighted with the collection and really enjoyed seeing them for the first time. We really feel like they capture the essence of the venue as well as the atmosphere of the occasion.
I really love the numerous great ‘natural’ shots taken throughout the day, they really compliment the formal ones so well.

Let me know if you would like any reviews placed anywhere or such like, as we’d be more than happy to promote your work and recommend you to friends or family.

Thanks again for your understanding and work ethic during the busyness of the day (both of you), and of course, for the wonderful collection of memories.

Best regards,

David & Claire


Thank you again for all the fabulous photos of our special day and the amazing album. Grandad summed it up best ! “She’s done a bloody grand job”. High praise indeed.
Everyone who has seen it has said it’s the best they’ve ever seen. Couldn’t agree more. I hope business for 2016 booms, we recommend you to everyone

Love Laura & Guy (& family)

“Janet, Janet Janet…

What can we say…we have been waiting until now to give you our final write up, now we have received our SPECTACULAR wedding album. Firstly, we would like to thank you for being so brilliant with us on our special day. We did not at all feel like we were paying someone just to do their job and snap a few shots. We felt like you were part of our guests, and we could tell you were enjoying every minute as we also were. We had such good fun capturing our amazing photos! We were having that much fun, we didn’t even realise how much it was actually raining!

(We can see now from watching the DVD back!) Each and every photo holds a special memory. Each turning of a page in our album brings back the amazing day we had.

We just can not thank you enough! We look forward to having you capture lots of future family events for us. (Yes, we would have our events in the Lakes or close, just to enable you to shoot them!).

Lots of love, best wishes and thanks.

Kim & Chris Pennington (AKA Snow White and Prince Charming) xx

and thanks to you we now have lots of amazing memories that we will be able to treasure forever. Thank you especially for keeping two very camera shy people calm on the day- we actually forgot half the time that you were even snapping away! You made us both feel so at ease during the whole Wedding, and actually made it fun to have our photos taken.

We’ll recommend you to everyone we know. We honestly can’t thank you enough

lots of love from Mr & Mrs Walker! x

Tom and Aynslie

Hi Janet

Having just received the most amazing album from you, only 7 weeks after the wedding, just wanted to say how pleased myself and Wayne are with the photo’s !

For two people who really don’t like having their photo’s taken you made us feel so relaxed and have managed to capture our day in a great mix of informal and group photo’s. It was a pleasure to have you there as part of our special day, in such an unobtrusive way. The photo’s themselves are fantastic and your patience as we selected and edited for our album was really appreciated.

We are delighted with the album – it far surpassed what we thought it would be like – the colours, design, make it a fantastic memory of our very special day. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting a wedding photographer !

Thanks Amanda and Wayne

To Janet,

We just wanted to say thank you for doing the photo’s at our wedding. We really appreciated the time you spent and the photo’s are brilliant especially the ones outside. We will recommend you !

Thanks again

Joe and Gill

To Janet,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for our beautiful wedding photos. We adore the album, it is bringing back some lovely memories of our special day and will continue to do so for many years to come. We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work on the day and the stunning results that it produced.

We especially appreciate your skills at taking beautiful shots of the inspiring surroundings of the Lake District.

Thank you again.

To Janet,

Thank you very much for doing the photo shoot of the girls in Levens Park. The photo’s are brilliant.

Lisa and Colin

To Janet

“Needing an updated family photograph to please Grandma I wanted something informal and relaxed but special, but thought the chances of persuading my camera shy menfolk and our daft dog to behave in a studio were miniscule. Word of mouth took me to Janet who encouraged my idea of an outdoors portrait on a favourite walk. It was just like having a friend tag along and the results were lovely, so much so that I have ordered some for ourselves too. I can’t recommend Janet highly enough – she put everyone at ease and could not have been more helpful afterwards, no request

was too much trouble. Don’t be fooled by the very reasonable prices either as I can assure you all is five star quality. Thank you Janet, we’ll be back.”


To Janet,

We just wanted to say thank you for doing such a brilliant job on our wedding day. The photos are amazing and we couldn’t be happier, everyone has said how good they are, when they have looked at the album.

Love From Dan and Stacey

To Janet,

Just a little note to say a huge thank you for doing the photography for our wedding. We have been nothing but 101% impressed with everything you have done for us. From being down to earth and making the photo’s not intrude on our special day, to producing amazing photo’s that we will treasure always. We’re looking forward to our album and haven’t forgotten about the cherish the dress day.

Love and Thanks Laura and Phil

Hi Janet,

Just to say thank you again. We are really pleased with our pictures ,they help remind us of our special day and you have managed to catch some brilliant expressions!!

We will have no hesitation to recommend you to other people and wish you very well for the future.

Thanks again Take care

All the best and thanks again.

Nick and Karina Mr and Mrs Barlow

Hi Janet,

We received our album on Saturday and we are delighted with it, it looks fantastic. Thank you so much for taking the most amazing photographs of our wedding, we couldn’t have asked for a more professional,talented and friendly photographer. You really managed to capture the relaxed and informal atmosphere and you did this without us hardly even knowing you were there. Everyone who has seen the photo’s thinks they are superb, we especially love the ones you took with the moody sky at dusk. Robin and I are so pleased to have such a fantastic reminder of our special day.

We will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for a photographer.

Thank you again.

Best Wishes

Joanne and Robin

Hi Janet

Just to a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding at Lodore Falls. You were fantastic on the lead up to the wedding answering all my questions. On the day you were so efficient and as someone who dislikes having my photo taken you made it so easy and comfortable. The photos were waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon and they are all beautiful it was hard to choose 90 !

Thank you once again

Briony and Mark

I’m sorry I didn’t email you yesterday, work has been manic. We are so chuffed with the album, the colours are so vibrant, just fab. Thank you so much for all your time, effort and most of all patience, although I’m sure you’ll agree it was all certainly worth it. The album and all the other fantastic photos you took will be cherished forever.

All the best and keep up the good work

Dear Janet,

Thank you so much for the lovely photographs of Sarah and Alex’s wedding. They were the nicest photographs of Sarah that I have seen, she looked so radiant. I suppose I am a bit biased being her mum.

It’s something we’ll treasure through the years. The photo’s really capture the mood and emotions of our day perfectly. Janet, you have a wonderful talent – thank you for sharing it with us.

All the best, Nick and Michelle


Went to London last weekend and saw Kim’s wedding photograph “album” (is that the correct word?). Truly truly stunning. A real work of art. Roll over Cartier-Bresson. Helmut N – just give up now ! Seriously I was knocked out by it. Roz will be going to Kim’s in the next few weeks and she will also see it. Tonight, I saw the selected pictures (from the CD) for the first time. They too are brilliant, conveying a real sense of the spirit of the wedding.

So Janet Ridley, well done again and thanks once again.

Our best regards

Paul and Roz

To Janet

Thank you for the albums. We were really impressed by the quality and how professional it looked. You have been great to work with and the service you have given has been exellent, thanks again.

Love Joey and Rachel

Hello Janet,

Thank you for helping make Saturday such a memorable occasion for us. I appreciate that it wasn’t an easy assignment for you, because of the timing, the 3 venues, and the numbers of people involved but you coped wonderfully without ever being intrusive. Chloe (Rachel’s brother’s wife) specially enjoyed talking to you.

I’m sure we will be delighted with the results in due course.

Best Wishes,

Judith (Rachel’s mum)

Hi Janet,

Thank you !! We have received the album and absolutely love it. Everyone is really happy with all the pictures. Thanks for making the memory of our wedding so special.

With kind regards


Hi Janet

May I firstly take this opportunity to say a huge,massive,enormous,gigantic, and awesome thank you for everything you did on Friday, all I’ve been able to say is how magical it was.

You were so lovely to me helping me get ready, I do hope I like myself in the pics I can’t wait to see them. Did the black and white ones turn out lovely. I would definitely recommend you to anyone getting married in the lakes. I want to keep going on and on but I know I’d bore you.



Thank you so much for our wonderful photos, they are such a nice present for my 21st, and something to look back to see little Evie at 6 months . I’m sure you will be seeing us again for some other photos at some point.

Thank you again.

Megan, Trevor and Eve
