Christening – St Mays Church Old Leake
St Mary's Church Old Leak
Barry’s professional yet personal approach to photographing our daughters Christening was excellent.  Ours was a short notice booking, and Barry was professional from start to finish and was very efficient in every aspect of his work.  He made sure he had all the information required before the event to make the day run smoothly and ensure we got all the photos we required.  The photos are great and just what we wanted, so clear and well thought out.  From contacting Barry on the Friday before the Christening, he posted the images on the Monday and I had them in Tuesday mornings post, all in 4 days!  At every point in the process I felt that we were in a ‘safe pair of hands’, which proved so true.  I will definitely be booking Barry for any future events!
Many thanks, Lucy Hampstead-Taylor

Dear Barry,
Thank you so much from both of us for capturing our special day so beautifully and for making sure you got the photos we requested, as you can imagine, our favourite has to be the one of us and the kids.  We really appreciate the effort you went to to get some of the images including lying on a wet floor and getting a wet bum!!
We will treasure our pictures forever!
Lots of Love,

SPIE1732It’s hard to put into words just how amazing the service was that we received from Barry at Certa Cito Photography. Our day wasn’t exactly ‘plain sailing’. From not having my dresses, to the church being covered with bees it was a bit of a stressful day to say the least! Barry was fantastic though, he always made sure I had a smile on my face, respected when I needed a second and got the most amazing natural photos you’ve ever seen. The album that’s been made is fantastic, I love it :). He came highly recommended by a friend of ours, it was the best choice we made. All I can say is thank you so much Barry and I definitely recommend you book him for your big day!! Best wishes Richard & Amy Dormer

We are over the moon with the photographs, you made us both feel so comfortable which as a couple who don’t generally like having our photo taken wasn’t easy! Your service was so professional from start to finish even down to the USB with our images on. We will be recommending you to everyone as will our families!Thanks again, Christopher and Alys

We chose Barry from Certa- Cito Photography after being highly recommended by a friend . Barry could not have been more professional. He listened to what we wanted and respected our choices. On the day he was professional and made us all feel at ease. He was respectful and took into account that I’m not the best fan of having my photo taken! Barry took some wonderful photos and captured every moment of our wedding day. We couldn’t be happier with the photos and our beautiful wedding album. We couldn’t recommend him more!
Thank you Barry.xx

Neil & I were married on 4th April and to be honest it’s taken us this long to leave a message on here as it’s been difficult to put into words how grateful we are to Barry for everything he bought to our special day. From the first meeting we clicked and got on like a house on fire. Barry was happy to answer any questions we had, however small or trivial and kept in contact with us, always answering any emails or texts straight away. We were planning our wedding on a budget and there was never any pressure to purchase anything that we didn’t feel comfortable with. As our day got closer we met at our venue and his insight, experience and professionalism shone through, making suggestions and pointing things out to us that we hadn’t even thought of which might compromise some of the wedding pictures. On the day itself, Barry was with us not just in our eyes as our photographer, he was an integral part of our family and friends sharing our moment. His approach was unobtrusive and we forgot he had a camera in his hands for most of the day! We were thrilled to receive our photos so quickly after the day, but although it was quick there was no compromise on the quality, the hard work and effort he put into them was evident. Every person we have showed them to (and there’s been a lot!!) has commented on how wonderful they were, and we have to agree!! We hope to keep in contact with Barry in the future, if it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have the amazing photos to remind us of the best day of our lives and thanks to him we can re –live it again and again. Barry, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. Karen & Neil Lewin

 We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Barry for stepping in at the last minute and saving the day at our wedding.  We are absolutely delighted with the photos, he really captured the dyad all that happened perfectly, there are almost too many good ones to choose from to put up around our house!!  Our favourite pastime at the moment is to go back through them all and re-live the day all over again, it is so nice to have so many images of our guests that shared the day with us.
Thank you so much for your ‘Military Organisation’ and professional approach.
Love Sarah & Peanut xx

We were looking for a wedding photographer and were lucky enough to find Barry. When I say lucky, I mean blessed. From the first minute we met at his house, he makes a lovely cuppa, to now, many weeks after our wedding, Barry has been nothing short of perfect. His work speaks for itself, look at the photos, but what these won’t tell you is about the man himself. He puts you both at complete ease from day one, with a warm mix of ease and confidence, you feel totally safe in the knowledge that this is one less thing to worry about on your big day. We met at our venues a week before the big day, where we planned all of the pictures, the timings and any other requests that we had. This is where Barry’s vast experience shone through, he pointed out many things we had neglected and helped us to organise them. On the day, he was with us from the first nerves through to the last dance, always there but never in the way. He helped us both relax and enabled us to enjoy our day knowing that he was there if needed. The selection of photos were immense and our album, I recommend the metallic paper, is the best looking album I have ever seen. We would both like to say that Barry should be the first thing you book for your wedding, the rest will be easy with him on your side.

wedding photographer sleaford, grantham, lincoln, bostonWe can’t recommend Barry highly enough: he has a real eye for a great photo, a friendly professional manner, and his work is very well priced – particularly when you consider the high quality that you are receiving.  It’s funny to think we almost weren’t going to have a wedding photographer; we’re so pleased we changed our minds!  Barry is very passionate about his work and it really shows in the results.  Thanks to him we have something truly amazing to remind us of all the fun and joy of the day. Barry was fantastic every step of the way from the first meeting when he came to our out of the way home to show us his work and talk us through what he would do on and in advance of the big day.  He made preparatory visits to the venue to ensure he knew the environment he would be photographing and talked through the itinerary to fully understand what we would like to capture.  He was even able to meet our need for flash free photography without compromising the quality of the photos. It’s true to say that ours was never going to be an easy wedding to photograph… we had a murder mystery theme which involved a tightly planned schedule due to having scenes of a live murder mystery play carefully placed throughout the day.  They were fitted around the ceremony, group photos with guests adorned with props relevant to the murder mystery sleuth of their table name, our couple photos, afternoon tea along with puzzles we made to help the guests solve the murder, and then of course some brief speeches, cake cutting, thankyous and the murderer being apprehended.  Barry took all this in his stride and somehow managed to expertly capture all these moments and more – he even took reportage style photos of guests throughout the day, and recorded little details such as the embroidery on the Bride’s dress, the favour boxes decorated by the Groom’s sister, and sweeping background photos of the hall. After the wedding Barry’s excellent service did not stop and he maintained strong communication throughout the process of choosing, editing and designing our wedding album. He has put huge care and attention into creating 40 spreads (80 pages) of superb photo arrangements and we are absolutely thrilled with the results! We have the most beautifully put together album we have ever seen and everyone we’ve shown it to has commented on the high quality of the images and finish.  Some have even requested Barry’s contact details so that they can pass them on to soon-to-be-married couples that they know.

Thank you so much Barry!!

wedding photography Lincoln We recently used Barry Spiers to photograph the most special day in our lives. We trusted him to capture all the important and cherished moments of our day and were not disappointed. The pictures we received from Barry were excellent quality and met all our expectations. Our beautiful photo album contained all the very best pictures of our day and will be treasured for many years to come. The album is made to an impeccable standard and is amazing quality. We would recommend Barry 100% to anyone looking for a photographer with an excellent attitude towards his work and who approaches this highly important job with complete professionalism and dedication. He is in constant contact and easy to reach if you have any questions or issues regarding any aspect of your day. He deals with any issues or questions promptly and effectively putting any concerns quickly to rest. From start to finish Barry made us feel at ease and we are immensely happy with the finished article. Our wedding was truly amazing and it’s wonderful to know that we will have those memories captured forever in our album. Thank you Barry for all your hard work.

wedding photography lincolnshireWe emailed Barry, rather last minute to photograph our daughters Christening. Barry contacted us immediatly, unlike others we mailed. I instantly warmed to his easy going, obliging manner. On the day Barry exceeded our expectations, by capturing the essence of Lolas baptism, in the natural way that we had hoped. Not only that, but Barry proceeded to work all evening, in order to present us with our images, the following day, as we were leaving the country. We felt that Barry went above and beyond our hopes, and he left us with some fabulous images of a memorable day. Many Thanks again Sarah Richie and Lola.




belton house weddingSt Nicholas’ Church in Barkston and Belton Woods Hotel Myself and my now husband booked Barry Spiers of Certa Cito Photography to take the professional photographs for our big day last month. I have to say, from start to finish, the service we have received has been absolutely first class. At our first meeting Barry made it clear that he was very enthusiastic and passionate about his work. This attitude came through by the bucket load as he generously made pre-wedding visits to all our venues. He started photographing preparations on the day and stayed with us right through to our first dance. Barry is a genuinely lovely person to have around on such an important day, making everyone feel comfortable, relaxed and happy. His natural photography style captured moments as they happened and everyone in our wedding party commented on how great he was. All our venues were very impressed with the respectful and professional way Barry managed the day. Now we are back from our honeymoon and we have a disc of hundreds of brilliantly taken and edited photographs as well as an album of artwork that we will treasure. This was all the time done to our specifications to ensure we were happy. A fantastic and reliable photographer that I cannot recommend highly enough!

Thanks Barry.

Wedding Photography Sleaford “Dear Barry, We would both like to say a big thank you for photographing our wedding. It was clear right from our first meeting that you really understood what we wanted and we valued going to the various locations with you to discuss potential photograph options. The flow of the day was not interrupted as you were so unobtrusive and as a consequence you were able to capture the moments naturally as they occurred. When we returned from our honeymoon we were of course eager to see the photos. You very efficiently designed an album which was very personal and we felt told the story of our day beautifully. Thank you for being so passionate about our special day”. Jill and Mo Choudhury


“The excellent quality images, beautifully designed story book and impeccably timed images aside, Barry’s professional yet jovial manner left everyone feeling completely at ease- resulting in completely natural images with smiling faces everywhere” Excellent VFM -highly recommended”.
