“We will treasure these FOREVER AND EVER”

“Unbelievably, we only looked through the wedding photos for the first time on Sunday! Admittedly this was quite a while after you first sent us a sneak preview, but we’ve been so busy and because we wanted to ensure the time was right, we didn’t get to see them until then! And WOW, was it worth the wait!!! It took us 3.5hours to look through all the photos once through and relive our wedding day… I knew they would be good but I didn’t really think about it too hard and now I’m just totally BLOWN AWAY… You have captured so many special moments, even those we weren’t aware of that prompt us to think back on what we were doing (like the photo of the clock – stroke of genius). We will treasure these FOREVER AND EVER…!!! Thank you so much for being a wonderful part of our day and making it so easy for us, from start to finish, we can’t thank you enough” Love Yasmin & Stuart xxx.

“Mona’s storybook photography of the day is amazing”

” We felt absolutely blessed to have had Mona as our wedding photographer. Being two people who pretty much despise having our photos taken we could not have asked for anyone better to put us so much at ease that we didn’t even realise our photos were being taken. From the moment we met Mona we knew she would be perfect for us. Her storybook photography of the day is amazing. Every time we look at the pictures we are drawn back into that moment and it’s like re-living it all over again. They are so beautiful and capture everything amazing about the day. Mona has a warm, friendly personality and is so professional that you couldn’t ask for more. Having been to a couple of weddings since it’s even more obvious to us how lucky we were with having Mona capture our day. Organising your wedding can be stressful but booking her will definitely remove one big stress for you” Jules & Toby

“We’re so pleased we chose you”

“Just taking some time to review our wedding photos again. Your photography is truly stunning and you captured our day amazingly. You were a delight to work with, but for the majority of the day we didn’t even notice you as you were so very discrete! Thank you, once again. So pleased we chose you as our photographer”  (Phill) “If I could give you 10 stars I would!! You captured our wedding amazingly and all I can say is WOW!! Thank you so much the pictures are beautiful and EVERYONE has said how awesome you were and how amazing your pictures are!! And most brides have said they wished they had you!! xxx  (Zoe) Phill & Zoe

“She’s a diamond”

“What can we say about Mona and the beautiful images she captured of our special day?! We absolutely love every single image she took, now deciding which ones to have printed for the house is a whole different story! Mona was constantly clicking away, although blended into the crowd just the same. As a very good friend of ours anyway, of course we were always going to have Mona shoot our big day, this made it even more personal for us. Mona’s work speaks for itself, so I’ll leave it there! She’s a diamond”  Shen & Eva

“Beyond what we could have hoped for”

“Mona was fantastic, we are incredibly happy to have had her as the photographer for our wedding. When we were organising the wedding, we had to deal with a lot of different people. The service that Mona offered really stood out from the rest. She was professional, friendly and really pro-active. From start to finish, she was brilliant. We knew that this was one thing in the wedding that we did not need to worry about. We felt listened to in the initial consultation, where she tailored her services to deliver what we were looking for. We had a lot of fun doing the pre-wedding shoot, which was really useful so that we could get used to the camera. When it came to the wedding she was great. We had a big wedding over two days. Mona was able to capture every occasion. The quality of the photographs that were taken was beyond what we could have hoped for. The albums that she is able to produce were the best that we saw out of all the wedding photographers that we saw. This is based on having visited several wedding fairs, including the national one held in Earls Court, London. In short, we thoroughly recommend having Mona as the photographer for your wedding. Make her the first thing that you book, you won’t regret it!”  Danielle & Richard

“We would highly recommend Mona to anyone for their wedding”

“We are so thrilled with the photos of our wedding. Mona takes such beautiful photographs and we were amazed at the quality, number and variation in the types of pictures she took, especially in our short evening wedding. We are not fans of posing for photos but she got the balance perfectly between posed and more natural shots, and made us feel really comfortable. The photos she took captured the mood of the day perfectly. We would highly recommend her to anyone for their wedding, You won’t be disappointed!”  Sarah & Alex

“Such an excellent service from start to finish”

“Mona quickly grasped what was important for us at our wedding and tailored her approach to suit our personalities. The mix of photos captured moments and memories of the day are amazing. She organised the groups really well for the official photos, but was otherwise very discrete. After looking through the photos, my 94 year old grandmother, who was not well enough to attend the wedding, said she felt like she had been there.”  Jessica & Mark

“We’ll treasure your beautiful images for years to come!”

“Mona was so warm and friendly and immediately made us feel at ease when we met her.  Thank you so much for capturing our special day.  We will treasure your beautiful images for years to come!”  SP & Michael

“Mona made us feel so incredibly at ease”

“We could not recommend Mona enough, she is wonderful! Despite Chris and I not being naturally comfortable in front of the camera, Mona made us feel so at ease and managed to capture beautiful moments of us. We had so much fun with her on the day, and we have the perfect mix of gorgeous portraits and relaxed fun group shots.”  Kate & Chris

“I was blown away with how they tell the story and the emotion of the day”

“In August this year my boyfriend organised an elaborate proposal in the beautiful Royal Pavilion in Brighton. I was completely unaware that this was about to take place was full of suspense and not knowing what “may’ happen next as the situation unfolded. Mona had been booked to capture this special moment, her professionalism was second to none and I remained completely unaware that she was taking photos very discreetly whilst we watched one of our favourite musicians sing to us. We received the photos very promptly after the proposal and I was blown away with how they tell the story and the emotion of the day. Thank you Mona for enabling me to relive that day over and over again and the pictures completely illustrate how we both felt. It’s great to think that i will always have something like that to look back on and reminisce over the coming years. Mona we can’t thank you enough!!!” Emma & Toby

“Simply beautiful!”

“We wed in Saint Lucia, and wanted the colours, light, and candid shots captured in our wedding photography. I’d seen Mona’s work and decided I really wanted her to capture my special day. I was so impressed with how she caught all our wedding day moments – getting ready, the service, reception and all the evening celebrations. Everyone spoke about the professionalism and friendliness of our photographer. Distance was no object, emails and visits to the locations plus rehearsal shots, Mona really made the whole day special. Thank you!!”  Andrea & Sherman

“Our photos are a really beautiful memento of a very happy day”

“Mona was our photographer for our wedding in May and we can’t recommend her highly enough. We were quite nervous models but her friendly nature really put us at ease during our pre-wedding shoot and it was a relief to have everything worked out in advance of the wedding. She was a real pleasure to work with on the day itself, adapting to all our last minute requests and schedule changes.  Our photos were ready before we’d even returned from honeymoon and we’re delighted with the results – they really capture the atmosphere of the day! She had been so unobtrusive with her camera that everyone looks relaxed and natural, which was exactly what we had asked for. Our photographs are a beautiful memento of a very happy day and we love looking at them” Claire & Richard

“We loved her creative and relaxed style of photography”

“We booked Mona for our wedding in July 2013, and we are so glad we did. She came highly recommended from a friend, and we were extremely pleased with the professional service she provided. Mona captured even the tiniest details that went into our festival-themed wedding, and we loved her creative and relaxed style of photography. We really felt that Mona really focussed on our personalities. She also helped keep us calm on the big day! On the day, all our guests commented on how friendly and polite Mona was, while at the same time being almost invisible. And afterwards everyone was extremely impressed with our beautiful photos that really told the story of our special day. We can’t thank Mona enough, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional wedding photographer” Lisa & Duncan

“We’ve magnificent pictures”

“We would like to thank you so much for the fantastic job you did at our wedding – we had the most amazing time at both our events, the simple London wedding and at the marriage blessing and party in Vienna! You were extremely warm, lots of fun, adaptable and totally fine-tuned into us our wishes and ideas. It’s been such a wonderful experience and we’ve magnificent pictures as a result!! We strongly recommend Mona as a great partner at your wedding or any of your events. For us Mona is now our ‘family photographer’. We’re looking forward to new photographic experiences in the very near future!  Warm regards from Vienna”  Tatiana & Henry

 “Mona made our wedding look so elegant!”

“I personally would recommend Mona Ali Photography to everyone. Mona has a way of being professional but super friendly at the same time. She was able to get the shots we wanted even when there was torrential rain on my wedding day!! She made me look so elegant despite the fact I had to run into the church so that that I didn’t get wet! She took some amazing shots and is very discreet about her presence. So many of my guests commented on how good she was and I love the photos, they’re amazing!” Camilia & Mel

“The end results are truly stunning”

“We were absolutely delighted with the photographs taken by Mona at our wedding. We met beforehand to chat through how it all works and we saw lots of samples of Mona’s work and albums, putting us at ease from the minute we made contact. On the big day, Mona surpassed herself, taking such personal and emotional shots. We had so many amazing photos to choose from for our album and the end results are truly stunning and a wonderful memento of our special day. We are delighted to recommend Mona”  Peter & Penny

” We totally love our photos – you were simply amazing!”

“It was so great having you there on our big day Mona. It was a long day and I can’t believe how hard you worked yet staying discreet quietly observant all day! We totally love our photos, they’re beautiful and you’ve really captured the essence of the day and us, with lots of special moments along the way. Thanks for everything, you were simply amazing”  Sarah & Ameer

“Our wedding pictures were truly the highlight of the wedding experience”

Mona captured so many moments of our day that were special for us and our family. She had the ability to blend into the background and make us all feel at ease. When all you have of your day are the memories it’s important for the photos to be perfect and with ours they were. These photos have now gone all around the world to family and friends who were not able to be there.” Laura & Mike

“Our photographs are everything that I wanted and more”

“Our photographs are fabulous, they’re everything that I wanted and more. Mona listened carefully to all of my ideas, took careful note of all of the details of our wedding and added her creative twist.  I had some quite strong views and ideas about not wanting the ‘traditional’ kind of wedding photographs and so had some wonderfully natural and not too posed shots, which was important to me.   The photographs capture the colour, fun and laughter of the day really well.   Our ‘trash the dress’ shoot was so much fun and produced some really fun, playful, original and unique photographs.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Mona as your wedding photographer – she’s extremely creative, open to your ideas and makes everyone relax.  She was discreet during the wedding, hardly noticing she was there but is lovely person to have around on your special day when getting dressed up and at the wedding reception”   Sarah & Rog

“From start to finish, Mona has been an absolute godsend to us”

“She was there to offer moral support, guidance and advice throughout the day. There were a few problems with the event people and she rolled up her sleeves, helped where needed and produced absolutely amazing photos that have helped me to feel that even though there were problems at the start, the day was a success. She was a pleasure to have at our wedding and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone xx” Lee-Anne & Damien

“Simply wonderful”

“Thank you, we love, love, love our photographs from our wedding day, they are simply wonderful. You worked so well with us and I love the special moments you captured, including Sean shedding a tear or two! Wonderful. Thank you”  Stacey & Sean

“We were absolutely delighted with the results”

“From the offset Mona was easy to speak to and great at keeping in touch. The thing I liked most was that she was amazingly calm and friendly but yet very professional. On the day both Mona and her second photographer were unobtrusive and we barely noticed they were there, but they somehow managed to get photos of everything that was going on. We were absolutely delighted with the results and got great detailed photos with minimal hassle that we will cherish always. After this lovely experience, hubby and I are thinking of taking up modeling….. if anyone in their right mind would have us!!!! Thanks a million for everything”  Sasha & Simon

“We can’t thank you enough”

“Wonderful photos, thank you so much, we totally love them. We had a really great day, full of fun and laugher. You were great, so calm, thoughtful and you caught all the special moments and the ones we missed as things happened so quickly on the day.  We can’t thank you enough. You’ve left us with such special memories. Big thanks to you again”  Vikki & Dan

“You went more than the extra mile for us and our photos are amazing”

“Our photo are just amazing. We absolutely love them and can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for us. You went more than the extra mile for us and our photos are fabulous. Everyone was talking about you and how hard you worked. We’ll be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again”   Mo & Michael

 “They could ‘feel’ the atmosphere simply by looking at the photos”

“Thank you for the fantastic job you did at Olivia’s 21st birthday party. She was unsure about having an ‘official’ photographer because she was worried about the party becoming too formal but is now so pleased that you were able to step in fairly late in the day. You were really successful in reflecting the mood, fun and enjoyment throughout the evening and we now have a fantastic album to keep. Friends and family who were unable to be with us have said they could ‘feel’ the atmosphere simply by looking at the photos. You captured so many smiling, happy faces with impromptu shots and managed to make the more formal group photographs spontaneous as well. You developed an excellent rapport with the guests but remained unobtrusive. We cannot thank you enough for securing the memories of Olivia’s birthday in such a wonderful way and we look forward to being able to call on you again for our next big occasion”    Steve & Clair

“We both felt very fortunate to have you as our photographer”

“We would really like to thank you for your time and patience on our wedding day, you made us feel very comfortable and we both felt very fortunate to have you as our photographer. The pictures are so lovely and make us smile every time we look at them”   Heeran & Nimi

“Truly wonderful”

” We love our wedding photos – they are truly wonderful. We can’t believe how you seemed to be everywhere but you didn’t get in the way or take over like some photographers we’ve seen at other weddings. You were discreet and interacted with guests so well. I love all the details you’ve captured and the guests reactions to things, many of which we just didn’t see on the day which just passed by in a such a whirl. We are so grateful to you. Thank you”   Alison & Luke

“We would definitely recommend her”

“We were very pleased with Mona and the photographs she took of our big day. We found her to be really friendly and easy going, and we really loved her style of work – it was just what we wanted. We especially enjoyed the time we spent having photos taken of just the two of us and had a lot of fun creating some magical moments. We would definitely recommend her”  Angie & Chris
