I constantly strive to give the best service possible, it means so much to receive such great feedback from couples after all the hard work is done on their photos, here is a small selection of testimonials and reviews from recent weddings.
Chris is an amazing photographer, he got to know us before our wedding so we felt really comfortable with him on the day. On the morning of our wedding he took some stunning pictures without us really knowing he was there. He also gave us lots of advice on timings before the day and also on the morning of the wedding with regard to what order to get ready and when to be ready for whereas our venue were pretty useless at that sort of thing. Chris knew we were going on honeymoon for 3 weeks the week after our wedding so he made the effort to have all our photos edited and back to us digitally before we went. Since our wedding I have recommended Chris to 3 friends who are currently planning weddings as we have so much faith and confidence in him and were so pleased with our choice of photography from both a personal and professional point of view.

Chris was the perfect choice for our wedding. He understood exactly what we were wanting from our wedding photographs and we got exactly what we asked of him, if not, more. His ideas and ingenuity meant that we received the most stunning images that we never imagined possible. In addition, we had a sneak preview of our photos within hours and the speed and efficiency of receiving our full album was incredible. I could not recommend him enough to the people of Yorkshire and further afield.
-Jude & Ben
We were lucky enough to secure Chris for our wedding day and it was one of the best decisions we made surrounding our whole wedding organisation. We met for the first time on our "pre-wedding shoot" and were made to feel immediately relaxed and at ease. He made such an effort to make sure he got to know a bit more about us as individuals rather than just "another couple". We were so happy with the photos from that shoot that we knew we had made the right decision and couldn't wait for the big day itself to be captured by Chris. My bridesmaids and I got ready in one of the beautiful suites at Goldsborough Hall. There were 6 bridesmaids, my mum, two hairdressers and myself in the room so needless to say it was quite chaotic!! Chris somehow managed to navigate his way around and in-between us without us barely realising making for some of my favourite pictures which all look so effortless and natural. Being able to be in amongst things on one of the most important days of someones life, without in any way disrupting things is a talent and one which Chris has mastered. We had the perfect balance of some family and bride & groom photos as well as the natural, non-posed photos which we love so much especially the fun and frolics on the dance floor :) We couldn't have been happier with our choice of photographer to capture the most special day of our lives and could only recommend Chris to anyone who is about to make that decision.
-Jenny & Leo
We honestly can not praise Chris enough for his photography on our wedding day! He completely got what we were after, even though we asked for some quite unusual pictures pulling video game-esque jumps, and he captured them better than we could ever imagine! He got on well with all our family and friends and put everyone at ease so we have some great relaxed pictures. Everything is so professional, even down to the monogrammed memory stick we received with our wedding pictures on! Our wedding pictures are completely perfect and that's down to Chris' attitude and perfectionism and we thank him for that.
-Katy & Tom
We could not have asked for a more committed, professional and talented wedding photographer than Chris. He is clearly an extremely talented photographer and works incredibly hard to maintain and improve his skill. He is always looking to get the very best shots for his bride/groom(s). He was the ultimate professional on our wedding day, and managed to achieve the most perfect photos, whilst barely being noticed through the day. His service before and after our wedding was also faultless. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.
-Lucy & Will
Chris is such a nice guy! Right from the moment we got in touch with him we felt like we had known him for years! He listened carefully to what we wanted and was even excited that we wanted pictures in wellies in the river too! The quality of the photos were outstanding and we got them so soon after our wedding. Chris has a great eye for what would make great photograph, this meant we were never standing around posing but the shots were mostly natural. He made a real effort to remember everyone's names which made taking photos easier and showed he took an interest in our day, making it feel less like it was his job. I would recommend Chris to any future bridal party, he really does go above and beyond thanks so much Chris!
-Cat & Ash
Chris is the most amazing photographer. He was perfect on the day, professional, kind,calming and discreet. He captured every moment of the day and each photo tells a story. His photographs are beautiful and the quality outstanding. We cannot praise his work enough, or thank him enough for giving us the opportunity to be taken back to the most special day in our lives just by looking at his photographs.
-Katie & Ed
We are so pleased we chose Chris to be our wedding photographer. We threw ourselves into making our a wedding day really special and personal to us; Chris completely understood this and captured it perfectly, completely exceeding our expectations. The pre-wedding photo-shoot was a brilliant way of getting to know Chris – so when he arrived at our cottages to capture the ‘getting ready’ moments it was just like having another friend to hang out with and this continued throughout the day! It was also very helpful in terms of feeling relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera so that on the wedding day we could get quickly some beautiful shots of just the two of us that look like something out of a magazine. Chris was so polite and friendly and we loved that he made the whole photography experience good fun. We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos; Chris beautifully captured all the emotions of the day, the beauty of the landscape and architecture where we had the wedding and all the little details that made it personal to us. The reportage pictures of us and our guests are fabulous – some very funny as well as moving shots. Every time we look through the photos (and that has been a lot – they are awesome!) we spot something new: an expression, a signpost, a stolen moment – they really tell the story of the day in the best way possible. Chris provided an excellent service from start to finish and on the wedding day many of our guests commented on what an amazing job he was doing and how he clearly enjoyed photographing the day. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an incredibly talented, imaginative and personable wedding photographer.
-Lisa & Kevin
A massive thank you once again for being our wedding photographer at Danby Castle. We've ended up with a gorgeous set of photographs we will treasure - "Like something out of Vogue Magazine" as one of our guests put it. Not only that, but thank you for being such a nice person to have around on the day, for helping us relax, and for making us laugh (Austin Powers moment for example!) We're looking forward to getting in touch later in the year so you can put an album together for us.
-Katherine & Kevin
Quite simply we want to say thank you. From the first time we sat down with you to discuss what we were looking for you listened to what we wanted and the pre-wedding shoot was a brilliant introduction into how it would be on the day - getting us used to the camera, getting to know what what we felt comfortable with and for you to gives us suggestions for things we wouldn't have thought of and to see what it would look like in advance. Altogether it gave us confidence in your work that allowed us to sit back and relax until the big day in the knowledge that everything would work out great. We had heard horror stories about photographers taking over the time or acting inappropriately. Thankfully we were very impressed in your professionalism and the manner that you handled yourself on the day. Your ability to take wonderfully candid photos where our guests when they don't even appear to know you are taking them is a skill. The photographs that you produced for us are such an amazing representation of our wedding, capturing the spirit and joy of what we, our family and friends felt that we can keep forever. We had such a brilliant wedding and we are so grateful that you were able to help make that happen.
-Liz & Simon
Steve and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a fantastic job with our wedding photos. We are so impressed with them - you really captured the day! We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer - not only are you very talented, but a lovely guy too! You put us both at ease and we felt so relaxed and happy on the day, it really shows in the photos. All our family and friends have commented on how stunning the photos are and how great it is that we received them so quickly. Thank you so so much!
-Elly & Steve
Chris, just a little note to say a massive thank you. I will always be happy we chose you to photograph our day. All our families have commented on how you remembered everyones names and this personal touch just made us love you even more. "Effortless professionalism" was just one quote from the day amongst many. You made us feel very relaxed on the day and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you. A memory capturing legend!
-Lindsey & Jonathan
We can't describe how happy we are that we chose Chris Milner Photography to cover our wedding day. Planning a wedding can be a very stressful time, but Chris immediately put our minds at ease with his calm, measured approach. He was easily reachable, accommodating to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. On the day he blended into the background, capturing an array of shots we didn't think possible. The end results are truly amazing, something we can't put down, and something we will cherish for the rest of our lives together. Chris, we can't thank you enough. You are utterly brilliant, and we are already recommending you to others.
-Catherine & Andrew
Thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day - you worked so hard all day and night, and made having our photos taken an absolute pleasure!! The photos are absolutely amazing! You have captured the feel of our day so perfectly - we couldn't be more happy with the results!! Thank you so much! We are so pleased that after months of searching, we found you as our photographer - you have been truely amazing throughout the whole process from start to finish- faultless! So many of our guests commented on your hard work during the day and I am sure they will all love looking at the photos now. PERFECT!! The photos have had us in laughter and tears tonight!! I am so pleased that these are the photos we will hopefully be showing our children and grandchildren in the future!

Choosing Chris to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. From looking at his work on-line it was obvious that he is incredibly talented but after working with him it became clear that he was more than just talented. He is enthusiastic about his work, makes you feel comfortable about being photographed and was willing to go that extra mile with any requests that we had, he didn't make anything seem too much trouble. The package from Chris includes an engagement shoot. My husband and I weren't keen to do it but with some gentle persuasion from Chris we went ahead and came to realise that it was thanks to this shoot that we were so comfortable in front of the camera on the day, and this comes across in the photo's. We had so much fun! Chris also made the impossible possible. We had a videographer and as a result they were in the background of our shots during the ceremony. He made them disappear, leaving us with some beautiful ceremony photo's. I just couldn't thank Chris enough for providing us with the most wonderful memories of our special day that will last a life-time. Not only that but he enhanced our wedding day with the laughs and mischief we got up to in order to get some great shots!
