We received your wonderful gift of a USB stick yesterday and cannot thank you enough for what was within! They are just amazing - all of them. Just breathtakingly stunning! I cried when I viewed some of them as it was like re-living the day all over again (I cried then too of course). We are so pleased. I have had to look at them again and again as each time I do, I see more and more, which is an incredidle feat to achieve. Your mirror work is outstanding - what a talent. I have sent some to Emma and she is thrilled and even James liked what he saw - which is a first. We now have the task of choosing some favourites which will be very difficult. Thanks again for everything - for the day itself and your wonderful presence, and especially for the pictures which are just phenomenally brilliant. I have *** to thank as he wasn't available and recommended you, so if you see him do tell him. What a find you were, so pleased he was booked (don't tell him that bit!) Thanks again and take care and keep up the outstanding work. I shall continue to look at your blog and view your work as I have a deep appreciation of what you produce. In fact, to be able to re-produce emotions through pictures that will last forever is quite unusual and requires skill and talent. I have seen many other photographers sites and some do not really capture it.

You're such a professional, talented but chilled out guy! Your style of photography fits perfectly with our relaxed day! Thank you so much xx

The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You've really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can't stop looking at them - there's just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The composition of some of them is just genius. We had such a fun day, and I'm just delighted that we've got these photos to remember it by - we're so lucky we found you. The presentation box and USB key are also gorgeous, such a lovely touch. I can't even imagine how much work went into the photos, we've spent hours and hours just looking at them! So a MASSIVE thank you and AMAZING work. Cat
