    The photography for our wedding was always one of the absolute priorities. I scoured websites, wedding fayres and friends’ photos, looking at 50+ photographers and slowly working up a dream shortlist. Eftal was top of that list from the beginning and we were delighted that he was not only available for our big day but prepared to travel to a venue he’d never been to before. His style is just wonderful; so warm and magical, capturing the most perfect moments between couples and their guests.

    On the day, Eftal was everywhere yet he just blended into the wedding; we barely noticed he was there which was perfect for me, a very awkward bride not used to having her photos taken. (Another tip; get the engagement/pre wedding shoot from Eftal if you can, this definitely helped me!). We were on the brink of a global pandemic, we were nervous and stressed but Eftal was that perfect combination of professional and friendly - everything you want and need in a supplier!

    The weather on our wedding day was challenging all day - we had grey skies, followed by an almighty storm which lasted well into the night. I insisted we try to capture some outdoor shots and Eftal was resourceful and in control when I felt all was lost - he offered advice, rallied us and made us laugh when we were all outside shivering and soaking wet! A true rockstar photographer who felt like a friend by the end of the day. The resulting images are stunning, we cannot believe in the midst of some of the worst weather I’ve ever known that he managed to achieve such beautiful photos which perfectly summarise a wild day in the Lake District. Thank you Eftal for having such an eye for the most beautiful shots, for your endless patience and creativity, and for memories we will never forget.

    Before we booked our wedding we knew we wanted Eftal as our photographer as we had seen his work and we had an engagement shoot with him and he made us feel totally at ease during that. We actually ended up booking our wedding date around Eftal’s availability! On the day he was absolutely excellent, travelling between houses to get shots of both me and my husband getting ready and at the venue he just knows where the perfect lighting and backdrops are. After the meal we walked down to a nearby pond where Eftal got the most beautiful photos with natural light. We absolutely love our photos and choosing which ones we wanted in an album was made so difficult as they are all amazing! Thank you for everything! Love Mr and Mrs Borwick 21.06.2019 x

    Can't recommend Eftal and Ladybird photography highly enough! From start to finish he was brilliant, incredibly professional and easy to work with. The quality of the photos are second to none and we will cherish them forever. Timing issues early on in our day and the limited window for photo lighting due to it being in January meant that we risked a lot of stress and limited photos. However Eftal was super, he managed the situation whilst keeping it fun and took loads of amazing photos. I honestly don't believe any other photographer could have achieved as many beautiful photos in such a tight timeframe.
    We really appreciate all your efforts on the day and all the hours editing since, thank you so much!

    We really wanted to get married with mountains and water as our backdrop and the Lake District is such a beautiful location. However with the unpredictable weather and the importance to me of our wedding photos I knew we needed someone that could handle whatever the day threw at us. I saw Eftals photos and was instantly in love. He makes moody skies and miserable weather breath takingly beautiful and magical at the same time. We were getting married in the Winter and rather than this now being a problem for our photos it was even more exciting for getting some incredible shots as the day went from light to dark. He completely utilised any area of the venue in ways that didn’t come to light until you saw the finished photo. Not only are his photos captivating but he was a complete asset to the day. He moved the day along, he managed the party telling who to go where and what to do next. He was completely in control of the entire group and day. In himself he is a fond memory from the day. I barely know where to start with his photos as there are so many that really mean so much to us and not enough space on our walls to give them the size they deserve!! I feel so blessed we managed to find such a talented photographer and will always treasure these stunning memories. Honestly if you want to take a worry off your mind just book Eftal and know that’s one thing ticked off your list that’s a guaranteed perfect supplier sorted. Thanks again Eftal✨ Mr and Mrs Bannister. 03.01.20

    Eftal photographed our wedding on 12th October 2019. We cannot thank him enough for the truly amazing photographs. Eftal captured our day perfectly. We have had so many wonderful comments about the photos, our friends and family were truly amazed. Our venue has even asked to use some of the photos to advertise future weddings. We are so thankful we found Eftal. When people say that your photographer is one of the most important things to think about when booking your wedding, they are so right. When it's all over and all you have are your memories and your photos to look back on, you will not regret booking Ladybird's Photography. Eftal is so friendly and he made us and all our guests feel at ease, we didn't even realise he was taking pictures most of the time, he is so discreet but also gets guests organised when they need to be. Eftal was also great in the run up to the wedding answering any questions I had and any requests, he is just the best! Thank you again Eftal, we are sooo in love with our photos. Wish we could do it all again! To anyone who is thinking of booking Ladybird's Photography.. DO IT! Love MR & MRS LESTER :) x

    From the first time we met Eftal back in November 2017 at a wedding fair at Abbey House we knew that we didn't want anyone else to photograph our wedding. Abbey House is a very special place to me and my husband, Scott as it is the place were we got engaged and we knew after looking through Eftal's albums and having a chat with him that he would capture our day the way we wanted and leave us with the most amazing memories to take away from such a special place. From then on Eftal was extremely helpful and answered every email we ever sent. Eftal was fantastic during the build up to the wedding with letting us know what would happen on the day. We really didn't have to worry about anything at all. On the day of our wedding, Eftal was amazing! He was professional at all times and brought lots of laughs and fun to the time we spent away from our guests. He made us feel very relaxed throughout which was very important to us. Alot of our guests have said what a lovely man Eftal was and how talented he really is and we couldn't agree more. We are unbelievably happy with our wedding photos, they have exceeded our expectations! We cannot thank Eftal enough for leaving us with the most amazing photos to remember the best day of our lives. I have and will continue to reccomend Ladybirds Photography!
    Thank you so much Eftal!

    We could not recommend Eftal highly enough! He has captured our wedding day perfectly and we are so pleased with our photos! We could not have asked for a more enthusiastic photographer - he was even mad enough to follow through with our crazy idea of going up Gummer's Howe for some photos in the mist and fog in the middle of December! On the day he made us feel so relaxed and we had so much fun (and a lot of laughs) having our photos done. He was also brilliant at directing all our guests outside of the Church so that we could get all of our family portraits done without taking up too much time. Everyone commented on how professional he was and I don't think the day would have run so smoothly without him! Thank you so much again Ladybirds Photography, you are so very talented and we will cherish our wedding photos forever. To all future couples, do not hesitate in booking Eftal for your wedding - it will be the best decision you make!

    I Would highly recommend Ladybirds Photography.
    We were so close to not having a photographer at our wedding as myself and my husband aren't one for photos of ourselves, however, we came across ladybirds through a recommendation of our venue and absolutely loved the style.
    Before the wedding we got to meet with Eftal and were able to discuss exactly what we wanted.
    Eftal made us feel at ease throughout the whole day, he was very professional and great with our little daughter to. All of our guests commented on how lovey he was and how relaxed he made them feel.
    We absolutely love our images and will cherish them forever.
    Thank you Eftal

    We would like to thank Eftal so much for capturing our day perfectly. He made us feel so comfotable and at ease whilst taking the pictures, and was a pleasure to be around throughout our day. He is extremely professional and obviously very very talented. We absolutely love our wedding photographs and love the fact we were offered an album as part of our package, something we noticed some other photographers did not offer. We could not recommend ladybird highly enough! Thank you again!

    We cannot recommend ladybirds photography highly enough! We've been lucky enough to have had 3 shoots done by Eftal so far and each one has been a joy and has produced some truly amazing photographs. Our children aged 4 and 2 loved being on the shoots, Eftal made it fun for them and he managed to capture some beautiful natural shots of them playing together and of us all as a family. We will cherish the photos forever, such beautiful memories, thank you Eftal!
