★★★★★

Manu took time to get to know my daughter and her fiancé, doing an engagement photoshoot prior to the wedding. It helps him to see how bride and groom are in front of the camera and helps him to plan for the big day. We cannot speak highly enough of Manu, his attention to detail is amazing and we are so pleased with the photographs and the slideshow is beautiful. We particularly like the photos which were not 'posed', some very natural lovely photos. We are finding it very difficult to choose which ones we want now. Thank you so much Manu for being a big part of my daughter's wedding. Extremely happy to recommend your photography services.

"As soon as I saw Manu Mendoza wedding photography I know that I wanted Manu to photograph our wedding day, it was the easiest decision and best we made!! Manu’s work speaks for itself. We were completely captivated by his stunning work, everything was so natural and the love between each couple was the main feature in every image. 

Manu himself is an absolute pleasure making both me and my husband feel extremely comfortable straight away. Everything from booking to receiving our images was effortless, Manu is highly professional and made the whole experience super easy. 

The day we received our images was like getting married all over again, we were completely blown away with the shots and how he had captured moments we never got to witness on the day. Our friends and family were amazed by the images and they will be truly treasured. 

We can not recommend Manu enough and will forever be grateful that he was able to capture the most special memories of our day".

"Manu has a unique and defined photographic style that is not merely a copy of what hundreds of other photographers are doing. He has developed something unique and takes pride in pushing his creativity to its limit. He has an innate ability to capture natural emotion rather than 'posed' emotion and clearly loves his work which naturally comes through when you meet him and when he photographs you. He relishes the challenge of capturing the individuality of each couple and it shows".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"We searched long and hard for a photographer as we knew we wanted something unique and impactful that we would cherish for years to come. We were delighted when we came across Manu's work and as soon as we met him we knew that his talent was matched by his personable and friendly manner. The complementary engagement shoot was a lovely addition to the package and Manu was also unfazed by the length of commitment on the day (we got married early in the day at 12 noon). He also offered a high-quality Queensbury album as part of the package which was important to us, along with the digital images".

"Manu was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of our wedding. We were planning from Denmark, and he still made time to Skype us before the day and talk us through everything. His planning was meticulous, extremely professional and helpful. He made us feel completely at ease and advised us about the best times to schedule events so that we could maximise his time and skills. The results were absolutely stunning and we have some beautiful moments captured that we can treasure forever!".

WHI DID YOU BOOK?

"We'd seen Manu's work because he did a beautiful photo shoot for my uncles in London. The lighting was incredible and the photos were so amazing, that we asked them to refer us to Manu".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"The most amazing photographer. My now husband rhys, found manu online. I was unsure as for a gay wedding I did t know protocol to who what why. From day one many left me at ease and the day itself was fantastic. So behind the scenes but always there. I saw my pics yesterday and I cried! Memories of the perfect day".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"It was so important to me to know we had a good photographer for our wedding, after all, it's the only visual memories you will keep forever. I didn't want an ordinary photographer whose pictures were like the ones someone could take with let's face it most smartphones today! I wanted something different, exquisite photos that no one else has. When I come across Manu's work, it just wowed me! A photo, in particular, one which was from an engagement session he did, light streaming through the trees behind a couple right through the centre of their kiss. Absolutely beautiful. It looks like a scene from the film Twilight which funnily enough was our wedding song. We had to have him!!".

There's not a doubt in my mind that we found the best photographer! Our photos are truly truly beautiful. Not only is his work out of this world he is genuinely a lovely lovely person, so friendly and very welcoming completely put me at ease. At the wedding, he completely fitted in, love this man and his work".

This is all thanks to Manu capturing such stunning images and every emotion on our day. Manu became a friend during our experience and it would not have been the same without him!".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"Because Manu is so talented and his photos are incredible, he is also so polite and engaging and knows exactly what you want and delivers".

"Manu is an exceptional, warm-hearted individual who is both passionate about his work and the needs of his clients. His relationship with us throughout our wedding experience has proved one of the highlights of our amazing journey".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"With 30 years military experience, the last 5 years engaged with industry providers’ working in procurement, my role has been to ensure the military invests in cutting edge technology whilst ensuring return on investment. This insistent mindset added to my fear of standing in front of a lens; created arguably Manu’s biggest challenge to date! Accepting nothing less than the highest of standards, from our first meeting Manu has never failed to impress, he is intelligent, articulate and possesses an industrious personality constantly striving to deliver perfection. We first met at a wedding show which provided the opportunity to compare his work, and more importantly his personality, with the other photographers present. Ultimately the decision was one of the easiest we made; Manu’s non-intrusive style permitted his work to speak for itself. As soon as we started to talk we knew we had found a caring, considerate and incredibly passionate wedding photographer. We couldn’t believe our luck, the relief was palpable. Our journey carefully guided by Manu has been both considered and nothing short of an exceptional experience. We started as complete strangers yet through his infectious personality and dedication to his trade he has become a true friend. Through numerous meetings, Manu has made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and most importantly relieved some of the stress normally associated with our big day. Initially trying to take the lead, I quickly learnt I was in safe hands. The trust between us grew from strength to strength during the engagement shoot leaving us eager to see more of his work. Removing all inhibitions he created an atmosphere where we felt at ease which created the ideal atmosphere for his art. The results were first class, his style, artistry and talent captured the unspoken moment, narrating a story through his pictures and brought a dream to reality. His advice during the wedding day proved invaluable and ensured the time allocated to photography did not distract from the wedding itself. Instead, he added value and ensured we both looked forward to our time together. The separate bride and groom shoots were hugely enjoyable, dare I say fun. During the ceremony, his non-intrusive approach left me wondering if he had missed the key events. My anxiousness was a wasted emotion; he captured more than we could have ever hoped for. His most creative session took place after the wedding breakfast. Leaving our guests to spend time with Manu he was able to demonstrate his flair, the results in such a short space of time were breathtaking. Through trust, creativity and his experience, we have a slideshow and wedding album which we will never tire of viewing. At the beginning it was about cost, in the end, his efforts have proved priceless. Manu has the ability to capture the moment through his incredible talent and portrays through photography the emotion, passion and love evident throughout the day".

"Manu is a wonderful, professional and inspiringly creative. He was so good at understanding our vision and style. His style of wedding photography is unlike any we had ever seen and we immediately trusted him and his instincts as he connected with us. We got married in Spain in the same church that my husband's father was married. We had an intimate, cross-cultural wedding and Manu felt like one of the guests! He was such a key part of our wedding and we have beautiful photos that we treasure".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?


"He totally understood our needs and we loved his work. He was welcoming and friendly and my husband and I appreciated his creativity and vision".

"Manu was a welcomed surprise during the madness of planning our wedding. He made the photography/ memory part of our wedding something we no longer had to worry about once we'd found him. His quality, presence and personality far exceed those of his peers and we would recommend him without a doubt to anyone. A true pleasure to work with. The quality of service that he delivers cant be faulted. He has a true gift and we are so lucky to have stumbled across him. He captured us perfectly".

Why did you book?

"We stumbled across Manu's work on Facebook as he'd worked with a friend of a friend. Instantly, caught our eye with one photo. We had seen so many other photographers work at wedding fairs and online who had worked hard for the sale. Their work was also very professional but Manu's work had something extra. We contacted Manu after seeing that one photo and we were entirely sold. The more we saw, the more excited we became and booking him didn't become a choice but a necessity. We couldn't be more pleased to have Manu as part of our day and he will continue to be an excellent contact and great friend".

"Manu is amazing! simply put! I have worked with many photographers and Manu was so adaptable and friendly. He listened!! most don't. His service is unparalleled. I so glad I found him, not only photograph our wedding but also offered an engagement shoot. He is so passionate about his clients and really wants to portray your love in a print".

WHY DID YOU BOOK?

"He is a lovely and kind person, he was my favourite wedding supplier and constantly communicated with me. I searched high and low for a different wedding photographer as most are too natural. I loved Manu's style and saw he liked playing with tints to give images a more dramatic feel. I got in contact and he had the most comprehensive booking system going, all online. It is an amazing setup. He provides an engagement shoot, along with an album for the wedding pictures. His online system is very user-friendly".

"Everything about our experience with Manu was perfect. The photos are fantastic and capture our day documentary style exactly as we wanted, looking fantastic! Manu made us feel so comfortable that neither of us or our guests realised he was there. There were so many fantastic photos that we are struggling to decide on which ones to use for prints etc...".

Why did you book

"We booked Manu as we had seen a photo on Facebook and liked the look of it. His use of colour on a camper van made the photo 'pop' and knowing our wedding was to be a colourful affair we knew we needed someone who had a flare with colour".
