  • Wedding: August 2011

This is a very late post but I was just thinking about this and found this post. We hired Chris Nelson as our wedding photographer in August 2011. I won’t go into details as it mainly reiterates the same terrible experience as the above. It was all the more gutting as we chose Chris as he was a friend of a family friend, who, incidentally, was mortified when we recounted our terrible experience.

We eventually got our photos and the proof book after eight months of hassling him, but there were less than half the number of photos that we were promised and the quality is poor – ultimately he didn’t deliver what he had promised and was contractually obliged to do. We also lodged a complaint with the European Consumer Centre. I’m glad to see his original website no longer exists, but see he has another one up and running, perhaps he hopes it will help his reputation to have a fresh start, but he won’t be able to hide from these terrible reviews of his service. 

Do not use this photographer, he is wholly unreliable and there are many excellent and honest alternatives in Northern Ireland. He does not deserve your custom and he is also my biggest wedding regret. I wish I had read about him before we hired him, so please do not make the same mistake. I was astounded when I read how many people had endured the same terrible experience as me. 

Perhaps the new UK Consumer Rights Act will help consumers counteract greedy photographers like him who only look out for themselves, but in the meantime, don’t give him your custom. It’s the most important day of your life and photos outlive memories – make sure you entrust the right person for this task. That person is not Chris Nelson!
