    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Neil Bowler tragically passed away on 8th August 2017 following a motorcycle accident. He leaves behind 2 beautiful children, aged 6 and 10 and a loving wife. Not to mention the rest of his family and a huge network of friends who loved Neil dearly.

    Neil was a well respected wedding photographer, he was straight talking and honest - he wanted to help people, and did so freely, whilst being understated and not expecting anything in return. He inspired and helped so many people. The wedding industry will feel his loss forever.

    The burden on his family and friends to go through the motions of sorting out his business and funeral arrangements, at a time when they should be able to grieve is one we would not wish on anybody. We would like to try and help carry the load by providing some support to a young family who now have financial strains involved with making arrangements for Neil’s funeral, as well as a whole host of costs related to tying up many loose ends from a complicated business. which was dedicated to capturing the memories and happiness of others. Neil helped so many other people, it would be great to repay some of that kindness.

    The hole in the lives of those affected by Neil’s passing will never be filled, particularly for Neil’s wife and his two young boys, who miss their daddy, and hero, more than anything else in the world.

    Please help us support this cause by donating whatever you can afford and also by sharing this page so that others may help too.

      Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU! We managed to exceed the wildest expectations of all involved and raise over £8000. Neil's family have seen the page, donations and all your kind words and support and they are "eternally grateful" in their words. This couldn't have been done without all of your support and shares. I can truly say we have all done our best for Neil in repaying his generosity and kindness - and let's continue to let his personality and work inspire us in what we do. Thank You!

      Wow! 99 people have donated so far in less than a day. Neil obviously touched so many lives, both in the UK and abroad. The response from photographers, clients and friends has been overwhelming and I'm sure his family will be comforted by all your messages and support. Thanks to everyone who has contributed

      Neil, we were only graced with your presence in our lives for a short time but without doubt you enriched them and became a good friend. The world has lost a great photographer but even greater man.

      I have only just heard this awful news. Neil was the photographer for our wedding at the beginning of August and he was so fun, friendly and calming on the day. I'm truly sorry for your loss.
