Check out what our couples have said about us


Would give 10 out of 5 if we could. We booked the Lux team and from day one the communication was absolutely outstanding, even down the payment policy where you can just pay as and when you like via PayPal suited us brilliantly. Richard and the team are absolutely sensational at what they do, like little ninjas who managed to capture every moment perfectly. To say we are happy with our LUX experience is an understatement, towards the wedding date Richard was one of my top whatsapp contacts and he is so wholesome yet professional which is such a perfect balance. One of my favourite memories of our wedding day is my rather drunk husband having a spontaneous business meeting with Richard, groom with whiskey in hand about how he could be charging double his prices in which Richard responded "I don't because I just love what I do" and you can feel that in his work. Value for money is beyond words, we had 2 photographers, Ash the LUX videographer who also made us some amazing content reels, arcade game, photobooth, cold spark fountains (highly recommend) and guest telephone (all from Lux) all for the same price as what we were quoted for one photographer from another supplier. If your searching for a photographer, search no more. Thank you LUX team, love the happy Mr and Mrs Moffitt
