“The Guildhall is a historic building and the oldest building still in use in the city. It was Leicester’s first police station and between 1876 and the 1900’s and saw many unsavoury characters pass through its doors. The Great Hall itself was built in about 1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi (a small but powerful group of businessmen and gentry) and it’s also believed that Shakespeare performed here during Tudor times. Over the years it has had many uses, including housing one of the oldest public libraries and serving as the Town Hall. After restoration, the Guildhall was opened to the public as a museum in 1926. The Guildhall is available for private hire and is a historic and atmospheric venue for weddings, civil ceremonies, renewing wedding vows and naming ceremonies”

“Set amongst 30 acres of manicured lawns and flower-carpeted woodland waterways and romantic bridges, Monk Fryston Hall provides a unique venue for leisure, weddings, celebrations and business. The historic Hall dates back to the 13th century and was sympathetically renovated to a hotel in the 1950’s and retains much of its original character and features. Located in the Vale of York, the hotel is only a short drive from the A1M and M62 motorways making it easily accessible from York, Leeds or further afield.”

“Located just outside North Bar, the only survivor of Beverley’s four medieval gates. St John of Beverley Church was built in 1897 by the Hull based architects Smith, Brodrick and Lowther and the builder George Pape. It is an example of Victorian Gothic style. Renowned architectural expert Nikolaus Pevsner described this attractive red brick church as ‘Gothic in a free, playful way, with an asymmetrically placed turret’. The church was first used for mass on Christmas Day 1897 and formally opened on 10 March 1898. It was not, however, consecrated until 7 May 1999. The dedication is to St. John of Beverley, formerly Bishop of Hexham and Bishop of York, who retired to the monastery he founded in Beverley. He died there c.721 and was canonised 1037.”

What an absolute dream of a wedding, delicately captured in detail by Andrew. I can take a minute at anytime and look back at these images and be there all over again. Not only did Andrew capture our personal monents, he captured the buildings we were in again, just adding to the memories. The image quality is outstanding. Andrew also has a great character. We didnt feel rushed by him or feel akward in anyway. His friendly personality was very warm and welcoming. I would definatly recommend this photographer. My one time moment captured for a lifetime. Couldn't be more greatful.

We just want to say a huge thank you to Andy and Lee for providing so many brilliant photos and videography for our wedding day. Andy and Lee were very professional on the day, with everyone feeling that they were there as family not as hired photographers. They were extremely accommodating with the range of photos we wanted considering how hot it was on the day! They were also great with communication leading up to the big day, as well as afterwards, and were very swift in getting our photos processed and delivered. Our experience of them has been perfect from start to finish, and we most definitely recommend these 2 great guys for any occasion.

Andrew and is son Lee are true professionals. We had a couple of meetings with Andy before the wedding day discussing the sort of shots we wanted apart from the usually group shots. We had the location for the photo shoot to take place etc. Then on the big day it decided to rain so we were absolutely gutted. This is where Andy showed what a true professional he was. He had a strategic plan and the results were exceptional. I would like to thank you Andy for the way you handled the day, you went above and beyond all our expectations. I could not recommend Andy enough, he is a true master in his field.

Andy was excellent on our wedding day, Andy and his team fitted into the wedding party really well and made sure that we got great photos without it taking the flow out of our day. The guests loved the team and they were pretty much like friends and family! Andrew went above and beyond to make sure we got the pictures we had wanted but also took creative direction to get fab photos we wouldn't have asked for. The videos and photos truly captured the fun of the day. We couldn't have asked for a better guy and photographer to be at our wedding and would wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone considering wedding photography :)Thanks Andy, we cannot thank you enough!

We booked Andrew Welford Photography to film our wedding ceremony. From the moment we contacted Andy, he was so helpful and was very quick to respond to our questions. A few days before the wedding he came round to discuss our preferences, and he explained what would happen. On the day, Andy and his son were both at our wedding filming. They were both so lovely and made us feel at ease, and they also blended into the background so that you forgot they were there which is good for those who get nervous being filmed. They even stayed and filmed extra parts for us that we were not expecting. When we received the video, we were so pleased with it. We have watched it over and over again already and it is something so special to keep which we will treasure. The video captures so many special moments and thanks to Andy, we will never forget them. Andy is amazing and if you are considering having your wedding filmed, don't hesitate to book with him. Thank you Andy :). Dion and Rich (wedding 9 August 2016)

Andrew was great, picking a photogapher for what is possibly the biggest day of your life is exceptionally hard and fraught with dangers, but luckily he and his small discreet crew came with recommendations from people we knew and trusted... And wow... we are so pleased, he and his team captured everything, all the important moments and much much more, and what can we say... the photographs are just unbelievably fantastic.

So happy with our photo selection. Both Andy and Tracey were superb from the initial consultation through to getting the photos. On the day, they got all the candid photos we wanted and worked with us and our guests in a great way. They really worked 'with' us rather than some photographers who just want to do it their way. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed with the quality of the photos and the experience on the day.

Andrew was brilliant . We took package 3, and we never regretted it. He was pretty much there from morning to night even though a hickup happened through the day with the venue Andy kept his cool and carried on very professionally. when we recieved our pictures we was over the moon, they came in a loverly presenter and we also got a copy of the photos on disc so we could send them to friends and family. Thank you Andrew for capturing our wonderful day.
