We chose Dal to photograph our wedding from a chance phonecall - he came to meet us at the local pub - we stayed longer than we should have ..by the time you read this, i will have passed away due to illness.. but my words are honest and true.. He has been tender and funny all throughout our short planning! Life is a celebration, do not let life pass you by - Dal is a great guy and we cannot speak anymore highly of him - god bless you all .. i got to see the photos- he did me and my wife proud, thank you (Phil Oct '16)
Dal was incredible on our wedding day! Made me feel relaxed and always went the extra mile. The quality of work was fantastic I wouldn't of chose a different photographer. I now consider him a friend not somebody we hired at the wedding and he made the day run smoothly from beginning to end! Thank you very much Dal you made us a very happy newly wed couple and will recommend you for all future work for friends and family! 5 * all the way (Lisa & Ben Aug '16)
Me and hubby had Dal do our wedding pics a couple of weeks ago. The results 1 word just WOW! an epic blend of elegance class and general encapsulates of family and love. The mini photo shoot he did with just me and hubby after the wedding ceremony was awesome. He captured us looking natural eventhough some of them of course were posed. And the video montage of our pictures set to music left me overwhelmed in a flood of happy tears. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who ever wants moments captured. (Dannyelle&Daimon Feb '17)

Thank you Dal for your part in making my daughters special day even more memorable (Charlotte & Blain May '17)
Dal captured our wedding day in May perfectly, we couldn't have asked for a better service before, during and after our big day.
Dal is friendly and professional, we felt he understood what pictures we wanted and was happy to take some untraditional fun shots!
Friends and family from the day commented on how well Dal fitted into our day, not overpowering with photography but ensuring every moment was captured.
It's true when they say the photos are all you have to remember the day once it's over, and we can honestly say we are over the moon with the photos we have! They prompt us to recall the day and provide great entertainment for family and friends!
We would 100% recommend Dal for wedding photography, he provides a friendly service, top quality images and brilliant memories to remember for a lifetime. ( Holly & Ed - May '17)
Dal is so friendly and down to earth and made everyone laugh and feel relaxed.
Wedding pictures are out of this world. You can tell so much hard work has been put in to pictures before and after. I honestly can't thank you both enough for our day 12/8/17 . From start to finish u we're both fantastic. capturing every special moment treasured in my heart forever!
I asked for a pic which was nearly the impossible to do but dal went above and beyond to do it! Omg yea he did a amazing job! He sent it me and I cried losing my dad almost 5 years ago and not having him there was one of the hardest things of the whole experience of planning a wedding and the day. Now I have a beautiful pic of the 4 of us it will be treasured forever by myself Jon and my mum
Thank you both so so much ( Becky & Jon August '17)
What can we say?!
From the minute we met Dal for our pre wedding consultation, we knew we had made the right descision for our wedding photography.
Within minutes of meeting him, he had us completely at ease and although completely professional, we soon felt like we were just chatting with an old friend.
On the day of the wedding, Dal and Jo did a fantastic job! Trying to organise over 80 people for group shots is no mean feat but they managed this with ease, laughing and joking along the way. We have been sent a few taster shots of the photos taken on the day and Dal even managed to capture some beautiful pictures of our 5 year old who rarely stays still long enough for us to take photographs of! Dal constantly went above and beyond on our wedding day and the wedding photographs are absolutely stunning! We genuinely could not have asked for more. We can not recommend these guys highly enough. Lovely, genuine people and beautiful photographs that we will cherish forever. ( Mike & Emma - March '17)
We are a big believers in reviews as it always helps us decide,This guy definatly deserves one.Dal was brilliant during our wedding day we can't praise him enough,all of our guests was telling us throughout the day how lovely and professional he was which left us with great ease,we have seen some of the preview photos and they are amazing ,Dal has a great sense of humour which really helps you relax on such a big day you need that and he really delivered our fear was having a pompous regimented photographer we didn't want that we wanted exactly what Dal gave us ,beautiful photos in a relaxed environment with some humour loved it ,we will highly recommend this guy he went above and beyond for us and I'm sure that is how he works with everyone as that seems to be his nature .Thanks Dal can't wait to see the photos when we come back from our honeymoon . (Darren & Marie August '18)
"There is not much to say about Dal Hatton except he fantastic at his job. He made us all feel very relaxed all day and didn't just take all the usuall pics that photographers take. He was great with the kids and got pictures of them even tho they wouldn't stay still? Only took a few weeks to get the pics back as well. Basically if you need a wedding photographer get Dal" - Julie & Russell ( May '14)
After looking at the portfolios we just knew that Dal would be perfect for what we wanted and so we went ahead and booked and we were not disappointed!
Dal was excellent at coordinating all of the key shots that we wanted as well as having an eye for other suggested key moments that we might like to capture. Dal helped everyone stay so relaxed and everybody commented on how friendly he was.We cannot wait to receive our photos once ready- we just know that from the sneak previews we had on the day that we will not be disappointed! Thank you so much for being a part of our very special day -Emma & Andy (May'18)
We used Dal to capture our Engagement Photos and we were so pleased with them we booked him for our wedding day, and I am so glad we did.

We would both highly recommend Dal to anyone who would like a professional photographer to capture the perfect shots for your perfect memories. Thank you Dal Neil & Steph. (June'15)
An excellent photographer with a very professional attitude and excellent prices. Captures the happiest moments with excellent photographs done to a very high standard.
I highly recommend Dal Hatton Photography to anyone and i know he will put a smile on your face during your special day and when looking back at the photographs afterwards.
Thanks Dal (Jo & Andy Aug '18)
Would highly recommend Dal, he captured every special moment of our day & yet we barely noticed him there. The DVD we received (with all images on a slideshow set to our ceremony music) is perfect to watch with the family & we've narrowed our favourite images down to around 30 .There's so many to chose from! From the disc & USB supplied, we've had excellent quality prints made & will treasure the personalised USB & box for a lifetime. On the day, Dal arrived plenty earlier than arranged & began straight away, the kids thought he was great & the adults thought he'd left, he was that discrete... If you're looking for a fun easygoing photographer who will provide a professional & thorough service, you've found your man! (Rebecca & Darren (July 16)
"What can we say, Dal was fantastic from our first meeting to the final photographs. During our wedding day Dal put all of our guest at ease and captured every moment in the way that we wanted. If your looking for great results with an different twist, look no further. We would recommend Dal's photo booth which our guests loved in the evening to have some really fun shots. We would definitely recommend Dal to anyone looking for a brilliant wedding photographer. Thanks again Dal. Simone & Dave :) - (May '14)
"What an absolutely fantastic photographer ! We used Dal for our wedding in October and I can honestly say he is such a lovely genuine man. Our guests commented on how lovely they thought he was and the children loved him. My bridesmaid said she wished she had used him for her wedding ! Dal put our photographs on a disc with our wedding music playing in the background and it is just fantastic. The photos are so lovely and I could not recommend him highly enough ! Nick & Charlotte, -(Oct '15)
"A perfect photographer for the perfect day. Stunning photos and a lovely video with beautiful well thought of instrumental music from start to finish including our first dance and so much more, he is a relaxing very calming man who is very easy to get on with. You can contact him any time day or night and he will always reply, he is very supportive with ideas and finishing touches Dal was amazing from start to finsh and I will always class him as a friend. If u want a fun and excellent photographer who thinks of everything and is brilliant with all friends and family especially the little ones and extra special shots contact Dal " Big thanks -Emma and Scott (Sept '12)

Dal was amazing he was so professional made what was a special day even more special.He was very pleased to do what ever we wanted.Our wedding was country and western themed so a little different from your average wedding. The quantity and quality of the photos were so clear the different angles and the multi shots and the way that he has done the black and white which makes them even more special.Thank you Dal for your amazing wedding photos we will cherish them always.- Wendy & Steve (May'16)
If your looking for a photographer of any kind, I would highly recommend Dal, he is amazing fun to be around and feels like part of the furniture. I had Dal do my wedding pictures which are amazing, he was with us the entire day and I mean from very early till very late. From groom preparation to bride preparation, poor dal surrounded by all my ladies,, he was extremely professional, and a very handy man to have around when my girls couldn't get me in my dress, he offered a helping hand,, he had respect for every situation, never imposed on private moments. Dal has a great sense of humour and we are very glad he was a part of our special day,, He captured so many natural pics throughout the day, not just posed pics, although he has a great imagination for posed pics, he's a very unique and creative photographer. I new from the first time I spoke with him, he was the one I wanted, I'd spoken, and met a few at wedding fayres. But no one gave me the feeling in my tummy like dal did. He took away my fears immediately never pressured me at all. I badgered this poor man for 18 months during planning, and he always had time to speak with me. Never made me feel like I was bothering him, I can't recommend him enough. I've had my photographs back they all are truly amazing. He is very professional and friendly and fun, now ain't that someone you need at your wedding. All my family and friends at the wedding said how nice dal was and alot thought we knew him, but we didn't he had the professional attitude and fun balanced perfectly. He also in my case took us away from our venue as I wanted some with just me and my husband without building in background,, he took time to get knowledge of the area and took us to a lake, which I have some beautiful pictures from there also, we had our photograph taken with a fisherman, dal's such a cheeky chappie, he approached fisherman, we had such a fun day which was made perfect by our choice in Dal.
Dal also went the extra mile for me I felt, he helped me plan the perfect suprise for my husband on the morning of my wedding, he took the stress of me and did the liaising with the suprise Videographer for my husband. Got with my husband extra early so he could be there when the Videographer arrived to capture photos of my husband for me. Now I don't believe you will find a more caring genuine photographer than Dal, he lives he's job you can tell it shines through in his work.
Happy planning to all you brides to be.
And any other reason to have a photographer in my opinion dal's your man. I wished I could take him on holiday with me.
