Testimonial from Charlotte & James
November 05, 2015
It has been a pleasure getting to know James and Charlotte and playing my part in capturing their special day. It was totally amazing to receive this lovely testimonial from these two (and before they've even received their final album!). I'm so excited for them to get to see their album and relive their beautiful day. Thank you James and Charlotte xx
Well where do I start?...
We first noticed Kelly’s work when we were viewing Upwaltham Barns. We got given a handful of photo albums to look through and Kelly’s album stood out! We loved how her photos were a bit quirky, but still professional. We asked the owner of Upwaltham Barns for her details.
From first getting in contact with Kelly, right up until the Wedding day itself (even now, after the Wedding) Kelly has been superb. She has looked after us from day one. Kelly explained all of her packages and how she works and what will happen in the lead up to the wedding. We had to book her in before somebody else did! With one email Kelly was booked and we could now relax knowing we had her for our wedding day.
Our engagement shoot was one to remember. We all agreed that the woods would be a great contrast from the wedding day itself. We were going for an Autumn/Winter look (sounds like we are modelling for a catalogue). It was 3rd time lucky for the engagement shoot as we had to cancel the previous 2 times because of horrendous weather. We had a great time in the woods and it was a great opportunity to get to know Kelly and how she works and which poses we need to pose in preparation for the wedding. We were joined by a dog who was obsessed with a puddle and throughout the whole shoot, the dog was barking and going crazy. We all had a laugh about it though and it didn’t affect the shoot.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Kelly was always at the end of an email, even if it was silly little questions, she always replied and reassured us. Kelly had previously done a wedding at Old Thorns Manor Hotel, so we knew she would know where to do the best shots. We had our timings meeting with Kelly and we told her which group shots were a must and Kelly worked out what times she had to be where in the morning etc. We felt much more confident knowing everything was in place and we just wanted to get married now!
The wedding day came and Kelly was wherever she needed to be. She caught all the getting ready shots in the morning, then throughout the day and night. We had both Kelly’s on our day and they make a great duo! We had such a laugh with them and they worked together so well to make sure all moments were captured.
Guests at the wedding said to us how impressed they were of Kelly squared and how they just fitted into the wedding party and didn’t make anyone feel uncomfortable.
I can honestly say that Kelly is not only your photographer! She is your wedding planner, bridesmaid, usher and best man! She helps the day run so smoothly and organises everyone as to where they should be. We put all trust in her and she was absolutely brilliant!
When we returned from our honeymoon, we visited visit Kelly to view our wedding photos. We were fed tea and cakes whilst viewing them which is always a bonus. It was so hard choosing photos as they were all so good. We chose a selection to make sure it told a story of the day. We can’t wait to finally see the finished album and to show it off to our friends and family.
Kelly is outstanding and we can’t recommend her enough! If you want the best possible photography package, Kelly is the full package and more!
We will definitely be using Kelly in the future when our life story continues.
Love Charlotte and James Warren xx
