We used David & Christine for our wedding who were absolutely amazing. On the lead up to our special day and during the day, they remained professional, friendly and approachable. They have an obvious love and passion for their work which clearly showed through their creative skills and talent. With these skills they worked alongside us to plan and organise what photos we wanted and imagined, giving us lots of useful hints, tips and ideas when required. With changeable and unpredictable weather they were extremely flexible and spontaneous helping us smoothly rearrange our day to get all the photos we wanted plus more. Their final photos were better than we could have ever of imagined, all of high quality and showing a huge variation of photo styles. We thoroughly enjoyed having them part of our special day. Despite being 2 people who don't like having our photo taken we felt at ease throughout and shared many happy, funny and emotional memories with them both, I would highly recommend them to everyone.
Rachel and Ryan got married at Tregardock Farm June 2019
We are absolutely delighted with our wedding pictures. They are truly something else! We knew from the minute we seen David's previous work that he is one amazing photographer but even that couldn't have prepared us for the outstanding photographs that both he and his lovely wife Christine took of our day. Our photographs became more important to us the week before our Wedding as my Mum was rushed into hospital and therefore, sadly, both neither my Mum or Dad could make the trip to Cornwall. David and Christine captured every second moment it seems and every detail perfectly. Our beautiful pictures tell a story and my parents after seeing them, feel as if they were there with us. Christine and David are just lovely and we truly can't thank them enough. We would like to wish this great team both all of the success and happiness both personally and professionally. We are so glad they were part of our day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Andy & Jenny Jackson xxx
Andy and Jenny got married at Tregenna Castle on the 1st of August 2016
We used alchemy for our wedding in May, not being from Cornwall we didn’t know who to use and come across their website and loved the natural pictures they had taken. We received our pictures the other day and know we made the right choice. Our pictures are absolutely stunning. They captured things I hadn’t even noticed on the day. The most amazing thing was they captured the kids playing having fun naturally. The only downside is we have to try and decide which pictures to have on a canvas and in our book as there are so many amazing pictures to choose from. Thank you so much xx
Stevie and Mark got married in Perranporth May 2019
Thankyou so much for the beautiful photos, they are amazing....my sister was talking rubbish when she said you only need one good wedding photo...clearly she didn't have photographers as good as you two!
We are thinking we need a bigger house to display all the images we want!!!
Please feel free to use any of the photos as you wish, they are too good
to be kept in our album!

Carol and Helen got married at Cornish Tipis in September 2018
"We searched everywhere for a good photographer as we knew there wouldn’t be much light being a December wedding and we found an amazing guy called David Wilkins from Alchemy Photography. Him and his wife arrived and were so professional and by the end of the day we had got to know them, my favourite thing about them both was their competitive nature, they were both so passionate about each shot and you could see the twinkle in their eyes when they had a good one and would show each other.
They were a great partnership and we will always look back on our photos with happiness and how they captured not just moments but a story of our day"
Sarah and Joe got married at Polhawn Fort Christmas 2017, this is an extract from the Real Wedding Blog post on Polhawn's website, see the full post
"We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos and have spent hours looking through them all since returning from honeymoon - it was wonderful to relive the day all over again through the photographs. David and Christine captured every moment of our special day beautifully and the balance of formal / group shots and more informal shots is perfect. Many of our guests commentated on how friendly and laid back David and Christine were. We also thoroughly enjoyed our pre-wedding photo shoot which gave us the chance to get to know David before the big day. Just brilliant - we honestly can't thank you enough."
Becci and Aaron got married at the Glendorgal Hotel Newquay August 2017
"Hi David and Christine
Lauren and Oliver Blake!"
Lauren and Oliver got married at The Seiner's Inn Perranporth in June 2018
As we live in the West Midlands, but we were getting married at Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, choosing our photographer was always going to be a bit of a punt in the dark. After doing some research online, I came across the Alchemy website and loved what I saw. The landscape shots were stunning and the candid photos they were able to capture of guests showed that they had a laid back and relaxed style which put people at their ease.
We were planning a James Bond style theme for our wedding and David and Christine's enthusiasm for doing some themed photographs for us was fantastic, they were as excited about these as we were.
On the big day David and Christine were in Falmouth for us bright and early to get photographs of the preparations and were with us all day into the evening so it was a long day for them but they never appeared to tire of us or seemed like they wanted to rush off.
All our guests have told us how impressed they were with how professional David and Christine were and that they were so at ease with their presence that they forgot they were there some of the time, which allowed for some great candid shots from the day. This is exactly what we wanted.
The James Bond style shots they did for us blew us away when we received the discs after returning from honeymoon. They clearly took this project to heart and had worked hard in taking the photographs and in the editing to bring our ideas to life. We can't thank them enough for giving us truly unique memories from our special day.
I would recommend David and Christine to anyone in a heartbeat.

Dear David and Christine,
Thank you so very much for being part of our wonderful day. We are still on honeymoon, but return to England on Friday 14th. Had the most fantastic time in Italy- don't want to leave!
The photographs are breathtaking, with so many shots captured off guard- which we loved to see. Thank you so much for taking so many and allowing us to share these memories together and with our family and friends.
We shall have a proper look at them at home and will definitely recommend your work to others!
Many many thanks and we'll be in touch soon.

Hi David and Christine. Thank you so much for your effort and professionalism during our wedding last weekend. You thought of shots and angles that us mere mortals would never dream of! We are currently on honeymoon in the Scillies and although we have got some nice photos on iPhone, we wish we had your expertise! Thanks you again both, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Alice and Matt X
Matt and Alice got married at the National Maritime Museum on 6th August 2016
Dear David and Christine,
I must apologise so, so much for not getting back to you before now. We were delighted to receive the discs of our wedding photographs through when we returned from our honeymoon, and we love the photos so very much... they really do capture the happiness of the day and the happiness we felt.
We hope you are both well, and thank you once again for the beautiful photographs and being so easy to get along with on the day. We have been back to the farm most weekends since the wedding, and the barn is back to being a concrete shed full of machinery dust, it's very strange to remember how it was that short time ago!
Many many thanks,
Vicky and Jon Roberts

Firstly thank YOU for sharing Adam and Lauren’s day.
It was absolutely wonderful and the pictures are amazing and just perfect!
We have all enjoyed re living the day with the sideshow and look forward to seeing the discs.
It was a joy to meet you and we hardly noticed the photos being taken during the day, so it was not at all intrusive.
As an older person, I also enjoyed the formal pictures and traditional shots, so thank you for those!
We were so pleased with everything that you did and I could not recommend you more strongly.
It was lovely to meet you and thanks again for all your hard work and dedication to perfection,

David is an amazing photographer he understood exactly what we were looking for to complete our day.
The photographs are amazing. We have enjoyed sharing them with our family and friends. There were so many really lovely pictures with the azure blue sea and sun in the blue sky. The memories will stay with us forever. Looe is a beautiful place to get married. We have one photograph I took to work to show colleagues, many have asked if it was taken in Italy at the lakes.

Tegen and Luke
We had an absolutely wonderful day, and the pictures we received are stunning!
We hoped you both enjoyed the day as much as we did. We're planning to move to the US early in the New Year and we can't wait to be able to make some of those pictures into canvases and picture frames! Having the pictures all on DVD's makes it so easy for us to take with us.
Again, we cannot thank you enough. You captured every amazing aspect of our day beautifully, and we will cherish them forever!
Elizabeth and Robin
Sorry for not replying sooner, didn't think we would have much to do when we got back off our honeymoon but I seem to have been very much mistaken! We did receive the discs and are absolutely thrilled with the photos and me and Jamie wanted to thank you and Christine for the amazing photos and for sharing our day with us.
Will be in touch
