Favourite Wedding Day moment
When the priest announced us as husband and wife. What an incredible “time stands still” moment!!!
What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography
Having Ben there was just like having a friend with us on our special day. We felt so at ease, and could really just enjoy those wonderful moments of our wedding day, whilst knowing he was capturing them.
Thank you Ben!
Advice for other brides-to-be
In all the craziness of planning and the big day, always remember that it is the two of you that matters the most – it will be the happiest day of your life .
