Well, Its been nearly a week since my wedding and I can't stop thinking of how great the day was. I would like to thank every one who joined us.
So many people helped to make the day special, so I would like to thank all the staff at Llansanttfread Court for all their hard work. Our Florist, Emma, from Love Lilly, The amazing Phil Jay, a massive thank you to the band, Paul Thomas '1 Way System', they really made the night.
And lastly to Richard Jones of MLA Photography, our Photographer. Richard has become a good friend throughout our wedding planning. His demeanor and professionalism on the day plus his tireless effort to capture the best photographs is greatly appreciated. Once again thank you to all our friends and family for making our wedding a very special day.

"Ffion and I have waited until now to pass on our thanks to you for helping make our special day perfect because we were awaiting the finished Wedding Album and it doesn't disappoint. The quality, content and layout of the album are absolutely stunning and we are literally over the moon with the results. Thank you also for providing us with discs so we have copies of every single photo that you took on the day.
Apart from the fact the album has come back and is by far the highest quality we have seen (and we did shop around prior to the wedding so we've seen a few) I would also like to thank you with all your help leading upto the wedding and especially on the day itself. Prior to the wedding you kept us upto date as to what you required from us and allowed us to input as much as we possibly wanted so we could get the shots that suited us. Next came the day of the wedding and honestly without you there i don't know what shape myself and the rest of the men in the bridal party would have looked like. You not only take amazing photographs but you can do cravats and buttonholes too! The little things like that, like turning up at the venue before myself so you could get ideas for where would be good to get shots and not making any of us uneasy with photos is a credit to yourself.
You managed to get some of our favourite shots without us even knowing you were taking them, you got everything we needed in terms of pictures with my family, with ffion's family and with all guests and the quantity and quality of pictures you took of me and ffion on our own was incredible. We couldn't have asked for more. We also appreciated the fact that you worked past the 2 hours we had paid you for in the night because you were aware there was a problem with one of the coaches of our evening guests getting to the ceremony so without us asking you decided to stay so that you could get shots of everyone who shared our day. That was a lovely personal touch from yourself which we really appreciated.
I would recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer especially for weddings. Incredibly helpful, professional and produced work of the highest quality. You were also very competitive with your prices.
Thank you again.

"Richard of MLA Photography has done some outstanding work for us.
As local councillors Howard and I need professional shots of work undertaken within our ward to coincide with press releases, public awareness campaigns etc.
Richard has always been fantastic the photographs have been used on several occasions and always extremely professional.
I would recommend MLA Photography having used them for both professional and personal purposes and the results are amazing every time."

Genre: Wedding, Location: Rhodes, Date: Sept 2010 I flew to Lindos in Rhodes to provide coverage for Catherine and Matthew, acting as a second photographer during the short ceremony and taking over as the primary for the boat trip, beach and reception venue shoot with coverage of the evening party and an informal family shoot the next morning.
"In a nutshell, you were great. The Greek photographer was so bossy that it was a relief when you took over! You knew what you wanted from us but didn't shove us into awkward positions or order us around. You made us feel totally comfortable.
The amount of pictures you took on the day was unbelievable - we didn't even realise how high you'd scaled the rocks at the church until we saw the pictures!
Everyone commented, particularly my mam and dad, on how unobtrusive you were on the day and how you put all the guests at ease.
We're bloody delighted with the pictures and can't wait to see the album later on.
Candid shots were really important to me cos I think some people just freeze when they see a camera. There were gorgeous off-guard shots of everyone so we were really chuffed with that.
My absolute favourite picture is just this simple black and white head and shoulder shot of us at the church where we're smiling and looking at someone else. We look so happy and relaxed (unusual for me and Matt) and you've caught it brilliantly.
Its going to be one of the first to be framed for the house.
But, in all truth, we love all the pics. We were really grateful too that you came over the next day to do some family shots with us and Sam.
You were fab. Thanks so much again for the pictures. They're stunning. I can't stop looking at them : ) "

Thanks for the photo, very impressed with the quality/detail in the picture.
What you say matters
Its always important to obtain a second opinion before securing my services as a photographer. As I will be working very closely with you on your important day or event you should be sure that the decision you make is the correct one.
How do people feel after a wedding shoot, after receiving their images or even weeks after their event when they have had time to reflect?.
If you dont have a friend or relative that has used my services then please take a look at the kind words people have written about me and my work and I'm sure that you will be more than happy.
