Reviews Bristol Wedding Photographers

the barn at upcote wedding photography

“Martin photographed our wedding at Upcote Barn in November and he was amazing. We wanted a photographer that could capture our day in a natural and non-intrusive way and that is exactly what he did. He is also very creative and the photos that he took of us in the rain are just awesome, it takes a good photographer to make rain look good on your wedding day!

Martin is such a lovely, friendly guy who is obviously very passionate about what he does. He captured some amazing moments on our special day and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. Thank you, Martin!”

“We got married at Quantock Lakes in May 2018 and we couldn’t recommend Martin enough! He went above and beyond our expectations. He was very professional and made us feel very comfortable.

The photos are incredible and truly captures every moment of our day. The photo album is amazing and the quality is outstanding, it will be treasured! Thank you again for capturing the best day of our lives!”

“We first met Martin when he photographed my best friend Catherine’s wedding where I was a bridesmaid. He was lovely to work with on the day and when the images came through they were amazing!
When my husband and I got engaged we didn’t even bother speaking to another photographer as we knew we wanted Martin.

Neither of us is huge fans of having our photo taken, but he was so good at putting us at ease and also just catching little moments of our day when we didn’t even realise! The images he’s produced really capture the atmosphere of the whole day and we genuinely couldn’t recommend Martin highly enough.”

“We were lucky enough to have Martin recommended by a close friend of ours who had used him for their wedding and were blown away by his service and product. I believe your photographer is one of the biggest and most important decisions when booking a wedding, and to say we couldn’t be happier with his work is an understatement.

Our photos are stunning and Martin has managed to capture so many moments, it’s amazing to think about how someone can be in so many places at once!! Furthermore, Martin is a very friendly, organised and professional person who will go above and beyond to try and fulfil your every need. I can, with 100% confidence, recommend Martin Dabek.”

“Martin photographed our wedding at Rockbeare Manor Aug 2018, we are so impressed with his photos and the album he has created for us, I would highly highly recommend him. Not only is Martins work stunning but he is the most friendly and professional person to work with.

Even our guests commented on how lovely he was. We have amazing photos to remember our special day, including one that went on to win an award. What else can I say! Really excellent, 5 stars”

Natalie & James – Rockbeare Manor

“Martin was our fantastic wedding photographer when we got married in Priston Mill in July 2019. He was extremely professional and friendly at all times. Communications before and after the wedding were prompt. He helped us both feel relaxed throughout the day, something which we were very grateful for. Our guests also commented on how lovely he was.
He was clearly very familiar with Priston Mill and we are so happy with all of the photos. We also purchased an album which is beautifully made and a great keepsake. We would highly recommend Martin.”

“From the 1st meeting to the last Martin was absolutely fantastic! Warm, friendly and most importantly, an incredible photographer!! We now have the most beautiful photographs of our day to help re-live it! Thank you so much!”

Laura & Alex – SS. Great Britain

“We spent a long time looking for photographers for our wedding (my Dad is a photographer and so was fairly fussy about this aspect of the wedding!). We were so happy to have chosen Martin, not only because his photography skills are fantastic but also because he is organised and great to work with on the day.

Capturing all good bits and sentiment of the day without over imposing or taking up too much of the day with photos. We are happy with our photos as are all our guests. A beautiful momentum of the day. Would recommend him to everyone.”

“We were recommended Martin for our wedding photographer by our caterer. He was wonderful to work with-he managed to work with all of our guests in an unintrusive manner and everyone thought he was great!

We even managed to coax him on to the bucking bronco that we’d hired at the end of the night – we have the photos to prove it! Our photos are brilliant and he was great to work with. Thanks, Martin!!”

Top Rated Bristol Wedding Photographers

“Outstanding!! Martin’s friendly, kind and professional attitude is really what makes him stand out as a photographer. Our wedding was at the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa in Algarve, south Portugal in January 2017. Martin’s creativity and ideas are really what made us feel comfortable whilst at the same time taking some wonderful and memorable photos of us on our wedding day.

It was simply a joy working with him and we would highly recommend Martin Dabek as a photographer for anybody’s wedding, particularly if you’re having a destination wedding, as ours was captured beautifully! Thank you, Martin, very very much! Elliot & Ivet, Edinburgh.”

“Martin Dabek was absolutely fantastic! Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he is also really lovely and professional to work with throughout the entire process.

Martin had the perfect balance between capturing stunning formal photos and capturing the spirit of our day and individuals expressions. Our photographs were amazing and were better than we could have ever imagined!
