    Amazing, everything we wanted and more!

    Beautiful natural photos which told the story of our day from start to finish. Steve arrived at the brides house in the morning and stayed until the music was off in the evening, and captured every moment in between. People who couldn’t attend have told us how the photos felt like they were there with us, all of the emotions were captured so beautifully. He made sure to get all the photos that we wanted, and any photos which people requested throughout the day, nothing was to much trouble. We felt so at ease even though we are not people who are used to having our photo taken, we could be ourselves and not worry and now have amazing photos! The hard part is picking our favourites!

    When the wedding is over all you have left from the day are photos and memories and we are go lucky and so glad to have had Steve capture ours!

    Steve Smailes Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure to capture your wedding. I loved all the little homemade touches and how all the family and friends chipped in to make it really special. I wish you all the happiness in the future. When I'm next down south I'll come over for a board game or two with you! :)
