Professional, personable, patient and great photos! Neil was the photographer for my sister’s wedding at Cardiff Castle. His preparation was very thorough as he had several meetings with the bride and groom to ensure he knew exactly what they wanted and visited the venue in advance to find out where the best shots would be. This made for a really efficient service on the day – the group photos were achieved with the minimum of fuss, and otherwise we barely knew he was there (unlike at other weddings we have been to in the past!) The result is the perfect set of wedding photos. He has also done two photo shoots of our family and both times has captured our two young daughters wonderfully – something that we have never managed! His patience and relaxed manner bring out the inner model in everyone! At affordable price we would recommend him for any occasion – what more could you ask for! Keep up the good work Neil!!

Sarah and Rey’s wedding took place at a local church in Lisvane with celebrations at Cardiff Castle. The Gregory family shoot took place in a studio and was a absolute bundle of laughs and great fun.
As a new business the choice of image for our first magazine cover was of vital importance, Neil Mansfield’s photography couldn’t have provided us with a better representation of our ethos; quality produce and a friendly approachable service. Neil’s strong pictures and perfect execution don’t simply look like great pictures of a fishmongers and seafood restaurant but rather the final chapter in a story that starts way out at sea. The clean lines and sharpness of Neils pictures have meant that they have also been a wonderful tool for us in the construction of our website.
fish@85 – Cardiffs premier fish restaurant
Fish@85 required a photographer who could shoot commercial event photography like launch evenings but also a series of photographs that could be used for publications and website detail. I created a series of unique portraits and images that highlight fish@85′s high quality product to the maximum. I continue to work with John and his team as the restaurant and fishmongers become the top dining experience in South Wales.
Neil, thank you so much for being with us on our big day. We were so happy with the service you provided! From the first point of contact and the time you took beforehand to meet with us and work out exactly what we were wanting…to the wedding itself. You were a delight to have around on the day…your relaxed personality had a calming effect on everyone and your style of photography was so unobtrusive that often we weren’t even aware of your presence. The photo’s and the slideshow are amazing…we are so pleased and happy with them. We will recommend you to everyone we know that gets engaged, so they have plenty of time to get you booked! We wish you all the best. Thanks again – Sarah & Mark Evans (November 2011)
