Couldn't have asked for better
Louise made my day so easy, I was offically bridezilla, I wanted this I knew I wanted that we all had to stand here. Louise kept me calm knew what would work and what wouldn't, she took enough control to make my pitcures amazing but left me enough to continue being bridezilla. I honestly couldn't have asked for such amazing service, pre wedding meet ups to the final picture I my hand, Louise was always around to reassure me and make everything perfect, a huge thank you from all of us

15 years of being a 'pro' and still enjoying it everyday

It’s usually the smaller hidden details the bride or groom organise behind the scenes eg keepsakes and surprise moments

A decent portrait of themselves! Its all about you as a couple, make sure you are in some together as it soon flies by!
