In your experience what did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ? They understand the day, they know what they are doing so well, minimal fuss, very organised, know how to handle family photos with minimal stress! helps to calm the bride and groom, piece-of-mind knowing you have the best person possible capturing all the moments of your wedding day when you know that you can’t!
Advice for other brides-to-be:
Be very organised! you can never have enough lists! stay calm and keep breathing throughout the ceremony, you are beautiful so remember to smile the whole time, enjoy every moment of it as time flies by so fast, have a great time on the dance floor and don’t sweat the things you can’t control.
