Wedding photographer thank you cards

It's always great when you get a thank you from clients, especially when they go to the trouble of sending you a personal card through the post.

After a very busy summer we have just re-found a couple which we thought we would share with you.

We thank both couples for making the effort to say thank you, it is very much appreciated and our special thanks to Donna and Adrian for their wonderful personalised wedding photographer card...I love the waistcoat though I do seem to be thinning on the top a little.

And we look forward to more.

Pre wedding photography on Tooting Beck Common

Well this blog of Donna and Adrian was meant to be published well BEFORE their wedding at Chalk Lane Hotel in Epsom Surrey but August and September are the busiest months for us wedding photographers so this is a bit of a catch up.

Our pre wedding photo shoot location was chosen by Donna as  it was on her door stop and where she walks the dog every day so here we were on Tooting Bec Common, a place we have driven past on many occasions.

The usual awkwardness at the beginning of the shoot was soon gone (as it always does within about 10 minutes) and Donna and Adrian along with myself and Tina all enjoyed a lovely little walk around  the common.

Hever Castle Golf Club wedding photographers

In the first week of August we were off to a wedding at St. Paul's Church Four Elms followed by a reception at Hever Castle Golf Club, a relaxed and welcoming Kent wedding venue just down the road from the church and also the ever popular Hever Castle itself, a place we have loved working at for many years.

Today we were covering the marriage of Dan and Lisa, a lovely sweet couple who we only just photographed a week earlier in their pre wed photography session in Foots Cray Meadows, Kent.

A warm and promising day though windy at times and at one stage threatening to rain just as we were starting the group wedding pictures, the day turned out gloriously.

The handsome couple looked fabulous especially Emma in her stunning wedding dress and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves in the lovely surrounding and fine weather outside by the ornamental pond.

After some very funny speeches, it was then chocolate fountain fun and some serious strutting on the dancefloor.

Farbridge wedding photographers

In the last week of August we were at Farbridge, a lovely rural Sussex wedding venue near Chichester to cover the wedding of Tony and Laura who first saw us at their friend's Nigel and Gemma's wedding some 5 years ago.

We had met up with them for a pre wedding photo shoot in Telegraph Hill Park in South London four weeks earlier and now it was the big day itself, and what a gorgeous day it was too. Warm but not too hot making it comfortable for the wedding guests as well as the wedding photographers.

The couple as you can see in this blog thoroughly enjoyed themselves as did we - as a wedding venue Farbridge is a joy to work at, situated as it is in beautiful and tranquil Sussex countryside.

It was good to see some familiar faces and we wish our wedding couple Tony and Laura and our previous wedding couple, Nigel and Gemma, who have since had a little baby boy all the best for the future.

Wedding photographers at Guildford Register Office and Guildford Castle

Three weeks ago we attended the wedding of Kimberley and James, a couple we had not had the opportunity to meet beforehand due to it being a last minute booking, at a venue we had surprisingly never been to, Guildford Register Office.

Kimberley looked beautiful in her lovely wedding dress and after an intimate service and some relaxed wedding pictures in the register office garden, we whisked them off to the historic and pretty Guildford Castle Gardens for some more personal and romantic wedding photographs.

Then it was goodbye as James and Kimberley went on to a nearby restaurant for their wedding breakfast.

So all in all a small and quick but most enjoyable morning wedding for a lovely young couple.

We wish them the very best for the future.
