"The most important thing on your wedding day is the precious time you will spend with your family and friends.
I'll create photographs designed to remind you of the warmth, happiness and fun that you and your loved ones share with you."


“Simon what can we say! …

The photographs are the truly wonderful! You have managed to capture the story of our most special day in a way that instantly reminds us of the emotions and love we felt. Words can not describe how happy we are with the output.

As for the slide show Sara must have watched this over ten times already and sheds tears of happiness each time!

We cannot thank you enough for what you have given us. You have been a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much.”

Sara and Gregg Deering, Basingstoke, Hampshire.
