Cathy and her husband and fellow photographer Brian were a pleasure to work with from the start - they welcomed my wife and I to their home and presented their plans for our wedding photography clearly, showing authentic passion for their job and a genuine interest in us as customers.
Throughout the months leading to our November 2018 wedding, they gave us their full attention and were reliable and very professional. We were particularly impressed by the "getting to know you" session, in which we were coached to be ready for the photos on our big day, and by their precise and wise advice on the timetable for the wedding day.
They worked smoothly with our team of Ushers and were almost invisible to us on our wedding day, while at the same time capturing memorable photos that touched us and many of our family members and friends for their quality and spontaneity.
We highly recommend Cathy and Brian’s Oehlers Photography, they exceeded our expectations! - Bruno and Sonia
From our very first meeting to receiving our wedding album this evening, Cathy and Brian have absolutely smashed it! We couldn't have asked for friendlier, more helpful, more professional, perfectionist photographers! They are so down to earth and encouraging that we were put at ease almost instantly during our 'Get to know you shoot' - and that is saying something for two very self-conscious, non-photogenic people (my now husband and I!).
I honestly can't recommend Cathy and Brian enough and I'm so glad we chose them to capture our wedding day as they captured so many amazing moments that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. If you need any more convincing, just look through their portfolio of wedding photos on their FB page or their website. I absolutely fell in love with their photography style and I'm sure you will too!

We first met Cathy at a wedding fair at the venue we got married. There were several other photographers there but Cathy was hands down the best one there, her photos were great and she was lovely and warm and we instantly felt she would do our wedding photos justice.
We weren't disappointed. On the day Cathy made sure we got all the pictures we had previously requested without being pushy and invasive. She had a good back up plan when the weather wasn't good enough to take pictures outside.
When we saw our photographs for the first time we really felt like we relived the day all over again. My husband even got a bit emotional again! Cathy and Brian were excellent and I cannot recommend them highly enough - Nicola and Ian
Thank you both so much for all of the hard work you put into our special day. You captured everything so beautifully, we will treasure our photos forever.
Thank you for making us feel at ease throughout, not only are you truly talented but also such wonderful people.
- Rachel and Adam
A massive thank you for all of the lovely photos you captured on our wedding day and the 'Get to Know You' shoot. We are so pleased and have enjoyed looking back on our day.
Also, a massive thank you for the part you played on our wedding day. Particularly Cathy and the advice you gave and all your help when it started to get a bit stressful getting me in my dress. I'll never forget that!
- Laura and Adam
Thank you so much for capturing beautifully the special moments in our wedding.
Your photographs are splendid. Truly a masterpiece.
- Kristine and Steve
Thank you so much for the excellent job you did photographing our wedding. You accommodated our every whim, made our couple photos fun and easy, and blended in so well we mostly didn't know where you were. We really love all the photos.
There were so many small things we missed on the day but you don't seem to have missed a thing!
Laughed, cried, aww-ed, laughed again, cried again .. the bouncy castle series is the best thing ever!
- Ellie and Kate
Wow! Cathy and Brian didn't disappoint!
From our first meeting with them we felt so comfortable and knew we were in good hands from the get go. The Get to know you shoot was fab and really helped ease us into how to get the best shots on our wedding day. Cathy's attention to detail is one of the things I will always remember. We absolutely LOVE our wedding photos and even the wedding album planning was special! We have just received our album and we are over the moon with it! Thankyou Cathy and Brian you truly are such lovely people.
- Rebekah and Steve.
We adore our photos, and we cannot thank you enough! You have been so wonderful to work with, and since we met you at Calke Abbey and then right the way up to our wedding , you've felt more like friends. You have a wonderful way about you and you're so engaging and encouraging - which, for someone who doesn't like having her photo taken, I can say it helped me enjoy it so much! Thank you again for your time and care - you've helped make beautiful, lasting memories of our big day - Gemma
I can only reiterate what Gem says. As a photographer myself, as soon as we met you I knew you were the right people to capture the most amazing day of our lives. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful photos you took, the laughs we were able to share, and the memories you have given us to look back on - Stewart and Gemma
We are so, so pleased with our wedding and handfasting photos. They really do tell the story of both of our special days. Cathy and Brian fitted perfectly in with our guests and are an absolute pleasure to have around. They work really hard and and get fantastic results. We have been on a high since collecting our photographs to say we are delighted would be an understatement . Thank you Cathy and Brian for making our special days even more special.
