Bonsoir Matt, Erm….where do we start?! Firstly, we are in awe of your job; being a wedding photographer doesn’t last just the wedding day but when the party is over, the rest of your work continues and we hold so much admiration for what you do for not just us but all of your other couples. We literally do not have the words to describe how we feel about these photos; they are everything and more. I feel like I am in a fairytale looking through your photos; they are magical, captivating and all round perfect. They are everything we could ever dream of to remember our day and the most precious souvenirs of the best day of our lives. You have captured moments we didn’t even remember in the thrill of the day and these have created even more valuable and precious memories with our family, friends and, of course, you. Through looking through our photos you aren’t only our wedding photographer but you were there with us to lend a helping hand, a guest, a friend (and a bouncer) and for that we feel so lucky. The raw emotion, love, smiles, laughter and fun that you have captured are next to none. The colours of the photos, the variety with black and white, the framing, just everything is magical. And don’t get us started on the highlights slideshow that you created... We cannot wait to share these with our family and friends; I think my new favourite question is going to be: “Would you like to see our wedding photos?!” We cannot wait to download, favourite, print, share and talk about these photos forever with these memories which you have created for us eternally. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And because three thank yous aren't enough in one language, here’s some more: Merci beaucoup, merci beaucoup, merci beaucoup. We are forever grateful for you; you are incredible. All our love and bisous, Caroline & Mathieu xx
