NEW WEDDING BROCHURE BACK FROM THE PRINTERS - MARK SISLEY PHOTOGRAPHY

Every three years I redo my six page glossy A4 wedding brochure, and each time I become more and more obsessive about the quality -  this year was no different! After much deliberation, many adjustments, picture changes, and numerous proofs, I'm pleased to report that it went to press yesterday. I am so thrilled with the quality, it really has blown everything out of the water that I've put into print before!

A big thank you has to go to Stuart of Butterfly Print & Design in Chesham for putting up with me, and to Hartgraph in Amersham who printed the brochure to such a high standard on their state of the art Heidelberg press..

My brochures are handed out to newly engaged couples at the various wedding fairs I attend, so I'm guessing over 200 of my glitzy new brochures will be distributed in the coming weeks at the Hartwell House, Taplow House and Waddesdon Dairy Buckinghamshire wedding fairs. If you'd like to have a chat about your wedding, and to receive a copy of my brochure, do come and visit my stand at one of these showcase events.

Kind regards,

Mark




   

WEDDING INSPIRATION AT WADDESDON - BUCKS - SPRING 2017 - (A WEDDING FAIR WITH A BIG DIFFERENCE)

Each year The Dairy wedding showcase event gets bigger and better; word must be getting around  about this fabulous show as at the last Wedding Inspiration event in the spring we had an incredible 600 visitors.  This must make it by far the busiest south east of England wedding open day outside of London! At the last show it got so busy at times that I was doing little group talks with up to 5 or 6 couples at a time, so I'm pleased to report that they've now extended the show opening time by an extra hour in the morning. As before, all of the exhibitors have been asked to promote their services in an exciting dynamic new way.  I and the other recommended suppliers have been asked to inspire, interact, create and demonstrate our talents in a completely fresh way, whilst showcasing the Dairy's wonderful possibilities for couples planning their special day.

I've invested a lot of my time in coming up with a retro display solely for this event, which certainly involves a lot more glitz and is a real wow factor! To see the results of my own and the other exhibitors' presentations, make sure you attend the event on March 5th 2017. On the day there will be three of us on my stand to assist with your enquiries.  You'll have the chance to chat with one of my recent 'Dairy' bride's, and you'll also have the opportunity to take a look through her wedding album.  I'm really looking forward to attending the showcase event at the Dairy, and obviously meeting those of you that plan to attend.


Everything you need to plan your perfect wedding day

I hope to see you at the Dairy's 'Wedding Inspiration at Waddesdon' event on the 5th March 2017. If you are planning your wedding for 2017/18, this show is definitely one not to miss!  Not only is it one of the most 'wow' venues in England, the way this event is being presented should be pretty amazing too! On the day you'll also be able to see several of my Dairy display albums, each contains over 250 images.  

Here are a few pictures from some of the ten weddings that I've attended at the Dairy over the last twelve months, plus a picture of my display stand:

Enjoy your week!

DANESFIELD HOUSE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

This location is just fabulous, and shows you how amazingly atmospheric and magical the right venue can be, and how much it can enhance your wedding day. When the interiors are this spectacular, you really don't need to go crazy on the finer details, unless you are Natalie and John! The bride's dress was just divine, I knew the moment I saw Natalie's gown that it would make for amazing pictures. I adored the vision they had for their intimate ceremony and wedding breakfast in Danesfield's stunning restaurant, the classic cream interiors and complementing flowers and decor were fabulously illuminated by the low January sunlight streaming through the huge leaded windows.

For a bit of bling and sparkle, I couldn't resist the opportunity to feature Danesfield's beautifully lit tree aisle that approaches the main building; once the sun disappeared thousands of blue fairy lights dramatically lit up the trees for the final picture of the day, and also my favourite image from Natalie and John's  wedding.

Here are some kind words from John and Natalie:

Dear Mark,

We have just seen the photos you took of our wedding and they are amazing!  They capture the essence of the day so well and will help us re-live it over and over again.  We are smiling madly to ourselves just looking at them.

The photography itself is excellent and we enjoyed working with you.  You were very sympathetic to the fact that we didn't want to spend hours posing for photos on the day as we were so distracted with everything else going on, but despite this you produced wonderful pictures.

Thank you once again from us both for capturing our magical day so beautifully.
Best wishes,
John and Natalie

Enjoy your week!
Mark
