“Simply the Best”
Thank you so much for shooting our wedding and pre-wedding photo shoot.....you were really fantastic. A little background on me. I am always a bit anxious when it comes to 'big event' photographs. I am always worried that they aren't going to come out as well as I hope they will, or that I am not going to look my best etc.
To get really great photographs, it is not enough to have a good team with a good photographer. You have to have a brilliant photographer who doesn't just take photos, he captures the vision he had for each shot.
Kenny does all that and more...I sensed that upon meeting me, Kenny quickly got a feel for my personality and set the theme,
With Kenny we got the photographs of a lifetime. Kenny was kind and patient with the whole wedding party and our guests loved him.
I immediately felt comfortable upon meeting him, which was for the first time on the very early morning of our pre-wedding photo shoot at Hever Castle in the Italian Gardens.
We live in America, so we put our faith in the recommendations of Harriet, our wedding planner at Hever Castle. We hired Kenny after looking at some of his portfolios online. Beautiful pictures...his pictures truly speak for themselves. He has an amazing eye for beautiful things.
Kenny's work exceeded my highest expectations for wedding photography. We only regret that we couldn't have taken him along to shoot the honeymoon and life thereafter.
We highly recommend Kenny Hickey Photography to anyone who wants photographs that are nothing short of exceptional
Kenny Hickey is truly a master of his art, photography

Please find below the testimonial that Simon and I wrote for you when we received our photographs. I hope it reflects how truly appreciative we are for the wonderful photographs we have of our wedding day at Hever Castle.
Photography was always one of our main priorities when planning our wedding as we wanted to ensure we had something that would evoke memories of just how special our big day was and capture the atmosphere of our spectacular wedding venue at Hever Castle. We spent a long time looking around at a number of different photographers and eventually settled on Kenny Hickey Photography as we really liked the style and creativity of Kenny's portfolio. He also came highly recommended by our venue and knew the setting well. Our initial meeting with Kenny re-enforced our decision as he was so friendly and had lots of ideas but was also keen to listen to what was important to us. To top it all off, he had back-up plans for every kind of disaster we could think of that might affect our wedding day which meant we had one less thing to worry about!
On the day, Kenny and his assistant were so professional and made sure we got all the photographs that were really important to us, even though this meant standing out in the freezing cold for a fair amount of time! They were so personable and unobtrusive that it was more like having two extra guests at the wedding than two photographers and several of our guests commented on how friendly they were. They even agreed to stay on for an extra hour at our evening reception despite the fact that it had started to snow heavily outside and we really appreciated their commitment to making sure our wedding day photography was all that we hoped.
When we received our photographs from Kenny we could not have been happier with our decision. The photographs were beyond our expectations and a number of people who have seen them, including friends of friends who don't even know us, have commented that they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen! We got some great photographs that Kenny's assistant had taken from different angles which really added another dimension to our memories of the day. All in all, our experience of wedding photography could not have been better and we would not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Kenny Hickey Photography to anyone!

I thankfully found out about Kenny Hickey through a recommended supplier list from Hever Castle when I was planning my wedding last year. The quality of his photographs speaks for themselves. They are absolutely stunning—a result of his knowledge and experience in the industry and at Hever Castle.
Kenny knows Hever Castle incredibly well; he understands the best locations and angles to best capture the bride, groom, guests and the incredible setting that is Hever. He makes an already beautiful setting dynamic by paying attention to all of the details. What is more, Kenny is a sincere pleasure to work with, from beginning to end. He values his customers, and makes the process seamless. My husband and I knew we found an excellent photographer when we chose Kenny for our wedding, but he far exceeded our expectations. Indeed,
Kenny is certainly one of the reasons why we look back on our experience at Hever with such fond memories. He does more than document an event. Kenny really captures the moment—the emotion, detail and lasting memories that you will remember and cherish forever. After working with Kenny, and seeing the pictures he produced, my husband and I agree that Kenny is the best photographer that we have ever seen. We count ourselves lucky that he photographed our wedding

Amazing photography, professional & very approachable wedding photographer for Hever Castle
I'm a wedding organiser and worked for Hever Castle for 3 years.
This is where I first met Kenny. A very prestigious venue, only recommends the very best. Throughout this time I continuously recommended Kenny to my brides, many of whom booked him as their wedding photographer. He is by far a great photographer.
Very approachable, kind hearted, nothing is too much trouble. Kenny understands that every brides dream is their wedding day and will go above and beyond to make sure every moment is captured. Now the time has come for me to get married, I booked Kenny straight away.

"Hi Kenny.....well Julie and I are safely back in Calafornia and still basking in the afterglow of a truly great, one of a kind party at Hever Castle.
We would like to say a huge big thanky you for the incredible photos's and for your amazing efforts to get an initial set of immages immediately after the party so that we could enjoy them on the long trip home. Yes, Julie really did have a little weep over them.
The final set of pictures are just as spectacular and they really are true works of art, not just photo's. Julie said the shots of her mother, now aged 86 are problably the best ever!
Having an official photographer for our celebration was a bit of an afterthought, but we are so glad we decided to do it and in particular glad the folks at Hever Castle recommended you.
Great photos taken in a very friendly and unobtrusive way that just went with the flow of the party. I am sure that our guests are going to enjoy them for a long time to come. Julie is insisting that we get them printed and bound in a book.
Andy and Julie xx
we know you realise just how pleased we are with our photos of the wedding, but because we are so happy we just cannot thank you enough, so we are doing it one more time.
A big thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our superb wedding photos. Each one is a true delight to look at and are a work of art. You are an exceptional talent, we are over the moon with them and so are our family and friends.
We look forward to seeing you again soon to say thank you in person.

Thank you so much Kenny, it was a real pleasure to have you as our wedding photographer and capture all the special moments of our day. We had such an amazing time at The Bell Inn Ticehurst, and we have so many beautiful photographs that tell the story of our day perfectly. I know we will hold them all dear to our hearts for years to come. It was also lovely to have a surprise sneak preview of some of the photographs you took during the day which you emailed me at 1 pm in the morning that very night!
Being very camera shy, I was quite nervous at the thought of being the centre of attention and having to pose for numerous photos but Kenny made me feel like a model and at one point had me strutting down the "stable with a table" on my own in front of everyone. Kenny created some stunning shots of me in my dress that have totally wowed all our friends and family as well as us........I love, love, love them thank you Kenny.
Your lighthearted, fun and professional manner also made our guests feel really at ease which enabled you to present us with the many brilliant candid and posed shots of them which I asked you for. So many of them had positive comments about the way that you worked even before they saw the results.
Kenny, you were a real pleasure to work with and we are sure that you will make many more newly weds as happy as we are.
All the best and I hope that our paths may cross again one day

Thank you so much Kenny
From the very beginning Kenny brought a fantastic enthusiasm & energy. It was very obvious Kenny loves and cares about photography. This immediately endeared us to Kenny and made our decision to secure Kenny's services for our wedding very easy. Kenny was happy to use his experience to suggest styles, plus listen to our own ideas which was really important to us. Kenny even took time to visit the venue and work out where were the best locations for pictures.
On the day Kenny was fantastic., he worked extremely hard to secure every request we made was fulfilled, and at the same time Kenny's friendliness and attention to details remained constant throughout. Kenny was extremely professional and captured so many incredible images to remind us how fantastic our wedding day was.
We received our disc of pictures quicker than we had hoped and are so delighted with them. We have an amazing portfolio of photos from the day which we really struggled to select the prints Kenny is going to supply.
Choosing a photographer for such an important day such as your wedding is a daunting prospect as you want everything to be perfect as it can be. Your photos will help create and maintain your memories to cherich for years to come.
Therfore I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Kenny and sincerely thank him for doing such a brilliant job.

Thank you Kenny for making such a fabulously beautiful and stunning record of our day for us. We really love the pictures and the variety of images you've worked on is great and the overall dramatic effect is outstanding. We couldn't be happier with the work you put in preparing for the big day itself, and the finished results.
Thank you so much, you're such a nice guy and we can't recommend you highly enough to everyone we know.

Just received this lovely feedback from Chris and Nicola whose wedding I shot at East Quay in Whitstable...
We would like to thank you so much for the photographs of our Wedding Day, the day has been captured perfectly and we couldn't ask for more.
From the beginning to the end you have managed to secure a wonderful compilation, a mixture of people, venue, decoration and surroundings, all of which are very fond to us and everyone worked so hard to achieve.
East Quay in Whitstable is a superb venue in its own right but your expertise and has managed to hold on to the best parts of the day with such subtlety and quality. Not forgetting your very patient assistant who worked continuously hard. We particularly like the group photos and all the humour that goes with it, the wedding breakfast and dancing into the evening, all making our album complete. Our whole family and friends have all commented on your talents and how creative the photos are, the most memorable day with a perfect set of photos. Thank you once again, Best wishes, Chris and Nicola xxxx
"Kenny was a professional from start to finish. He produced some amazing engagement photos, even indulging our wish to have one of our horses join in! During our wedding day he made sure to get all of the shots, plus some inspired photos which we wouldn't have thought about.
We couldn't be happier with the pictures and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - you certainly won't find anyone as dedicated as Kenny".

I received this from the lovely Ally & Ryan whose wedding I covered at Hever Castle.
A very thorough professional, yet personal job from Kenny from start to finish.
Kenny instantly made us feel really comfortable, and he knew all the right moments to shoot and produced a stunning album of images at the end.
We are so absolutely chuffed with the photos and you'll be the first I call if in need for another event that's for sure! We had a right good laugh looking through them with our families, some absolute crackers on there.
We cannot thank and recommend Kenny highly enough!"
Ally & Ryan
Matt and I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work that you have put into our wedding photos, we could not be happier with the result, they are simply stunning. As someone who doesn't like having their picture taken you and Kirsty made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.
Everyone at the wedding said how amazing and professional you were and, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer.
We will treasure these photos forever!
Thank you Kenny

HELLO FROM FRANCE
I hope you are well. I want to thank you and your assistant immensely for all your work on our special day.Not only did our day go like a dream but both you and Simon were fabulous. We greatly appreciate how hard you worked and how it isn't always easy to manage to get your work done when there are timings to be respected etc etc and not everyone speaks english!!!
A huge amount of people complimented us on our choice of photographer - this was even before having seen the shots that you sent us before leaving for our honeymoon!. They found you both extremely professional, discreet, artistic, funny and generally very very nice! We cannot thank you enough.
I know Mountains were equally very impressed with you.
Thank you thank you thank you for everything...."
Many Kind Regards

Some lovely feedback from a beautiful Persian wedding I shot at Buxted Park Hotel.
Hi Kenny, thanks so much for our beautifully presented photo print box plus your thank you card! We loved our photos...
"From the very first time we met Kenny it was an instant professionalism. He has delivered a truly first class service to us from the beginning, throughout our wedding and after the wedding he has been providing regular updates in regards to our album, photos & extra prints.
We are so very happy with our wedding photos & the style of the shots Kenny has captured. Regular communication with clients especially for a bride and groom, is key and unlike others we dealt with for our wedding, Kenny has ticked all the right boxes!
We would like to sincerely thank Kenny for his work and everything he has done for us & highly recommend him and would definitely contact him for any future photography work"

Some great feedback from Stephanie & Simon whose wedding I covered at Salomons Estates, Southborough
"Kenny did a fantastic job as our wedding photographer and captured the day perfectly. He even managed to take some lovely photos from the very back of the church (as it was our vicar's specific request that he stay in the background). We are so pleased with the pictures, which we will treasure forever. I think it is also worth saying that a friend, who wasn't even at our wedding, commented that they were the best wedding photos he had ever seen!

I've just got home and seen your photos and am absolutely BLOWN AWAY!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just INCREDIBLE!!!
You are amazing and I don't mean that lightly, you have captured the absolute essence of joy and happiness of our wedding ceremony and reflected through your talented photography and post-production the sheer beauty of our special day.
These photos are simply stunning. Thank you a million times for your work, you deserve every piece of praise as you are clearly hugely talented and a really nice guy to boot. It's been a pleasure dealing with you and I look forward to seeing the rest of the pictures.
Once again Kenny, both Grant and I thank you so so much for your time, effort and talent and wish you every luck and prosperity for the future.
Love from us both
Ps we will be more than happy to recommend you to everyone

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being our wedding photographer at Hever Castle on 3rd August. I'm sure all your clients tell you the same but we really did have the most wonderful day from start to finish. I still cannot quite believe I was fortunate enough to have the fairytale wedding I always dreamed of but finally we got there & thanks to you we will cherish those memories forever.
Thank you so much for the fab taster of pics you sent, they are simply amazing and something that I looked at over and over again while being on honeymoon.
I don't normally like looking at pictures of myself but somehow these are just so beautiful. You are a very talented photographer and I am so pleased we chose you to capture these precious moments. My guests all commented on how tirelessly you worked on the wedding day, yet how calm and relaxed the atmosphere was.You clearly love your job and it really shows through your pictures.
We are very much looking forward to seeing some more of your wonderful work.
Gemma & Neil x x
we are all so very pleased with the results you have produced from our daughters wedding at Hever Castle. As parents of the bride with responsibility for the arrangements – photography was a major worry. You have completely allayed those fears with the quality of your work (as you did on the day).
The high standard of your approach on the day and the compositions created are a credit to you. In fact, the record of the day that you have constructed – both with the images taken and the portfolio you have put together – makes the question of a wedding video superfluous. You have produced the perfect record of what turned out to be the perfect day. We are so grateful.

Tina & Kevin booked me by phone from Australia and it was such a delight to finally meet them both, a really lovely wedding.
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
"From the moment we booked Kenny to be our photographer, his personable and professional attitude shone through. Most of our communication was via email, due to being overseas, but once we met, he made me feel confident that he could deliver what we wanted, and he and his team gave us a day of memories that we love.
He is not standard he is different, he can be what you need him to be, and his unique perspective gave us images that we didn't always expect but most definitely love."
