I captured Sheila and Pete's wedding a few years ago at The Dairy on the Waddesdon Estate, and it was probably one of the most fun lively weddings I've ever attended, so I was thrilled when Sheila asked me to capture some new pictures of herself and Pete. After her wedding, Sheila asked if she could help me occasionally at the wedding shows I attend, and she has been an absolute revelation for me, having such a high energy and enthusiastic former bride on my display stand has worked wonders for future bookings! So the least I could do in return was to capture some portraits of her and Pete to show my appreciation.

Enjoy your week!

This is one of those amazing weddings where I found it really difficult to choose favourites for my blog.  I just loved so  many of them!  Grainne and Shayne created such a beautiful wedding day with all of their ideas.  They held their ceremony and reception in the fabulous setting of Missenden Abbey.  You'll adore the wedding details - her stunning long-flowing wedding gown, her truly elegant flowers, and the amazing interiors of this magical venue.  There was a jovial party atmosphere all day long, and the laughter and smiles were continuous through out the day.

Here are the kind words I received from Grainne and Shayne:

Dear Mark,

Firstly, thank you for being so attentive and professional throughout the process.  You had some great ideas, and your experience clearly shines through.  Weddings are very stressful!  It was very wise to have a walk around the venue beforehand to scout out the best photo opportunities.  Visualising what was possible was so much easier with you there giving us ideas.  We are delighted with the results of our photos, and are pleased that we chose you above the many photographers out there.  (It was an easy choice from the start.)  You were so patient and went above and beyond to get the right shots (even cleaning the dress at times!)  We love the natural shots, and especially the shots of the selfies as they were being taken by the guests.  These are our absolute favourites.  

Thank you for helping us have the memories of our big day for the rest of our lives.

Thank you again for the amazing photographs - we love them!
Grainne and Shayne

Enjoy your week!
