Dear Graham & Brenda,
Just a line to let you know how wonderful our wedding album has turned out. It is a fantastic record of a really special day that was really brilliant. You offered us natural shots as a rule and this was a huge success.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants a great photographer for their special day. Also the DVD put the icing on the cake capturing every detail of this beautiful day.
And one more thing, thank you very much for being a part of our day and your participation in our charity fund raising which made #750.
All the very best from Mandi and Leo.

Dear Graham and Brenda,
Rob and I thought it was really important that we shared with you just how thrilled we were with the album and especially the DVD. It was obvious that a lot of hard work had gone in to both.
We watched the DVD and it really took us both back to the day and we thought the part where the confetti was being thrown was fab.
We would like to thank you both for making our memories of the day so perfect.
Bev and Rob
Hi Graham & Brenda,
We just wanted to say what a fantastic job you did for us, the pictures are amazing, and you fitted right into our day which meant it was nice and relaxed, exactly as we wanted.
We would certainly recommend you to others, all our guests were as impressed as us, can t wait to see the album.
Thank you so much

Dear Graham and Brenda
Finding a photographer for your wedding is so difficult and when we met with you we knew that you would be perfect, you seemed to love the idea of a seaside theme as much as we did! Nothing was too much trouble for you. You were inundated with emails from us and you replied quickly and answered any thoughts or queries we had, nothing was too much trouble. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for covering our special day. We and our families have some absolutely stunning pictures that we will cherish forever. Everyone that has seen the albums and canvas have commented on how lovely they are.
Id also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to both of you for doing my trash the dress shoot as well. We had a fantastic time. If there are any brides out there that want to put their wedding dress on again, have some brilliant photos taken and have a really enjoyable day, then I can highly recommend doing it!
Once again, Thank you so much to both of you.
Lindsay & John
Dear Graham and Brenda,
Dave and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so completely fantastic.
Dealing with you both on a professional level has been a pleasure, you produced a great record of our wedding day that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
Gillian and Dave
Hi Graham & Brenda
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did on our wedding day, the photos are absolutely beautiful we couldn't have wished for anything better you were both fantastic.
Thank you Again
Andi & Alison Scott
Hi, can I firstly say how beautiful all of the pictures from Natalie and Jeremy's wedding are. You are amazing photographers! Would you be able to put a selection of pictures onto one canvas wrap? The pictures of Bradley and Amy are gorgeous and we want them all!!!
Hi Graham & Brenda,
We've just come back from our honeymoon and were inundated with texts from everyone back home telling us how wonderful your photos are.
So as soon as the door was open the pc was on and they were right!!!! You've done a great job and we're really pleased.
You were both fantastic on the day and we'd like to say a BIG THANK
YOU for all your efforts.
The only problem is now, which one's to choose to go into the album!!!
Dawn and Tony
Dear Graham & Brenda
I'd just like to say that we were thrilled with how you managed the photography on the day, but also, how wonderfully the photos look. They capture the fact that we had an amazing day and most importantly, a fun, happy and stress- free day. So, thanks again and we're dying to finally have the photos in our album - it's an exciting wait.
Thanks Again Rachel & James
We are absolutely delighted with the photographs capturing our wedding day. We approached the task of finding a photographer with some trepidation but we felt you would go the extra mile to ensure you captured the day- and we were right! We were also impressed with the dedication you showed afterwards when involving us to ensure that the choice of shots and album presentation were exactly as we wished. We feel that your relaxed style excelled in capturing the atmosphere and memories of our wedding day.
Best wishes Chris and Anita.
Dear Graham & Brenda
Thank you for meeting our expectations, we had an amazing day and you have given us something to remember it all.
Love from Danielle and David
Greetings from Costa Rica,
Thank you for a great service on our wedding day, we would gladly recommend your service to family and friends. You made us feel very relaxed.
Robert and Pippa
We are delighted with the composition of the album, its flawless, we think its fantastic.
Paul & Theresa.
Just been looking at the photos, they are fantastic. Don t know how we are going to choose from them, there are so many good ones.
I love the portrait one showing Alan with 3 different expressions, wondered, could you do one of me like that??
Thank you for capturing our special day, the memories will stay with us forever,
Jessica & Alanbr>
Just a quick note to say that we have just looked at the photos from the hotel internet cafe and they are fantastic!
We think that you succeeded in "capturing the day" as promised, and the additional castle shots are excellent. We hope that you enjoyed the day (nearly) as much as we did!
Talk to you further when we get back.
Chris & Anita.
Both Robert and I would like to thank you so much for the amazing photographs you've done for us, I don t think either of us understood the integral role you played during our day.
The service you provided was professional and friendly; we have already started recommending you to our friends!!
The quality of our album was stunning; it was so nice to have the opportunity to see it before it was printed.
Thank you very much
