Thanks You’s: A lovely letter from Natasha & Mark

I first heard from Natasha several years ago when she called to check if we were available to photograph her and Mark’s forthcoming wedding. Sadly I was not and I joked with her on the phone about “Now if only you could change your wedding date…” – to which replied: “Okay, sure”. And the rest as they say was history.

In May of this year the time finally came for Natasha and Mark to both walk down the aisle at the beautiful Drenagh Country House. Their wedding was beautiful and everyone was so lovely… paticularly the guys at Marryoke who joined us for the day to provide the videography.

It was lovely to get in to work this morning with this beatiful email from Natasha and Mark to tell us how happy they were with their wedding photographs. I just had to share…

Hi Graham and Hannah,

I’m really sorry it’s taken so long to get around to writing to you about what you did at the wedding. I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the beautiful photographs on the wedding day. It turned out exactly as I wanted and was absolutely beautiful. I honestly can’t say enough about how pleased both  my husband  and I were with how it all turned out. I want to thank you for your patience and openness to listening to my ideas for some of pictures and you really helped capture the entire fairy tale theme for the day, I really appreciate it. I felt like you were willing to listen and kept me up to date every step of the way and asked any questions that perhaps I hadn’t thought of that kept me on track and still took into consideration my budget. You were polite, friendly, professional and something that I stressed too much about in the lead up to the wedding: punctual. All of those really helped put my mind to ease and calmed me on the day. I will definitely be reviewing even if it takes me a week or two I promise I will.

The albums are wonderful, both our parents love it as do me and mark. The details in our big album help bring out things we didn’t even notice in the digital versions.  Just WOW by the way, all the pictures are amazing and exactly as I thought of them in my head. I know I made the right choice changing the wedding date so I could get you! From our initial chat to the engagement shoot I know both me and mark felt really comfortable around you both which was a huge achievement especially cause mark is so very shy. The engagement photos really got the sentimental feel yet sense of fun I really wanted from them. Honestly the photo of me and mark in the circle will likely be my favourite photo of us EVER so thank to you for shooting but also to Hannah for dealing with the cape lol. So once again just wanted to say you were fantastic and thank you so much I will definitely be recommending you and if I have any need in the future for different occasions I will absolutely be coming back!!! I wish you all the best for any future work and you have my gratitude for making my wedding day, the best day of my life.  I guess there’s only so many ways to say thanks but I just want to emphasise how brilliant you were!!

A Million thanks

Natasha and Mark Burch
