Rachael sent me this message just before they flew out to the Maldives, I thought I’d share..


“Hi Ben,
We wanted to sincerely thank you again for your brilliant work on Saturday.  You were so much more than a wedding photographer – you kept us on time, you made us laugh and you captured the magical moments which will last us for a life time.  We both commented that you’re such a likeable guy and make people feel so comfortable around you – like you’re instantly mates!
Thanks again for everything.  We cannot wait to see your work of art!
Off to the Maldives now.  Be in touch in a few weeks!
Joe and Rachael”
