Jo and Beki, Thanks

Every now and then I get an email that literally rocks my world and one I received this morning did just that, In February we photographed Jo and Beki’s wedding which was without a doubt a top day, we had gotten to know Jo and Beki during 2008 and had a blast at their wedding, 

Here is the email Jo and Beki sent: 

 

“Dear Jules & Sue

From the moment I first emailed you, and you emailed straight back from your sun lounger in Florida, you made us feel like we were the most important people in the world.   You were the first of three wedding photographers we had appointments with; after our meeting we cancelled the rest!  You and Sue made us feel like friends rather than prospective client’s right from the start and we loved your informal fun approach to photography and all the professionalism backing it up.

We loved getting to know you through our engagement photo shoot and had so much fun trying to keep Smokey, our dog, under control whilst in the New Forest!  You have the patience of a saint!  It didn’t feel like a photo shoot – more like friends out for a walk taking some fun shots along the way.  Getting to know you beyond doubt made us a lot more at ease and trusting of you on our wedding day. 

From the moment you and Sue arrived at my parent’s on the morning of the wedding you brought a buzz and laughter to the day.  You were both never once intrusive, but always ready to catch the memories as they happened.  I absolutely love looking back on our beautiful album that you designed as it captures such fleeting moments.  Moments that would have passed Jo and me by unnoticed had it not been for you. 

All of our guests have commented on how wonderful the photos are and how fun and friendly you both were on the day.  In fact I think you are now friends with a lot of them on Facebook!  Having been to other weddings I can definitely say that you aren’t the typical, formal wedding photographer; you captured so much more than the formal group shots, such as people chatting amongst themselves not noticing they were being photographed, and an amazing shot of our young flower girl looking through the gap between Jo and me at the Altar.  We can never thank you enough for capturing everything we could have wished for and more.

I can’t wait for the next photo shoot with you – ours is now a friendship I hope will last a lot longer than our wedding day.

With many thanks and the kindest regards

Beki & Jo Matthews”

Neil and Kelly @ Minley Manor

 

 

On Saturday we joined Neil and Kelly for their beautiful wedding in Minley Manor ,   Sue and I started the day at the Frimley Hall Hotel in Camberley for some preparation shots with Kelly and her girls whilst Dave who is our associate photographer met with Neil and the boys at the Holy Trinity Church, We dont very often take Dave to our own weddings but this was a large military wedding over 3 venues with a lot of traveling so it eased the possible issues.

After an amazing service we all travelled to Minley Manor where the weather was superb and enjoyed an afternoon on the lawns as well as a few romantic walks for those perfect portrait moments which were coming thick and fast.

We then headed on in for Diner and some wonderful dancing before finishing the night with fireworks.

We met a couple of great suppliers, the first was Allerston Taylor and Regency Carriages who where amazingly helpful and fun to work with and the second where Sean and Jamie from Expressive Films wedding video, we dont often get excited about videographers but these guys are great.

Neil and Kelly are heading off on a 3 month honeymoon so Safe trip guys x
