Words from a Groom

Hi everyone - I haven't been blogging of late - Martin and I have had a very busy summer season which has been great! We are now going into our Autumn/Winter Season and I just thought I would post a blog!

We were pleased to be the first photographers to shoot a Wedding at The Coach House at Delbury Hall near Craven Arms, Shropshire back in June. It is a beautiful setting and such a fabulous private venue for a Wedding. We had a wonderful day with Sarah and Fraser and Fraser has very kindly written these words which I thought I would share with you as we have not scheduled an update of our website yet and this testimonial will go on the website then! Fraser - we are sure - would be pleased to talk to any prospective couples on the phone if they wanted to speak to him!

Martin and Julia of Spinning Your Dreams provide one of the best services I have ever experienced in any industry. I cannot recommend them highly enough as wedding photographers. They provided a product that stands out from other photographers, they provided it with a professional attitude, their attitude was extraordinarily supportive, and they demonstrated commitment to ensuring that our wedding day was how we wanted it.

In terms of product, we were offered full day coverage, with reportage and formal photographs, from the start of the day until the first dance. It is important to note that you get two photographers with Spinning Your Dreams. This gives you a much better chance of collecting great candid shots from even the most camera shy guest , as the guests relax once the most obvious photographer has shot a photo, and the second photographer gets a great shot from another angle. We had a huge number of photographs to choose from.

The album choice is phenomenal. There are a huge variety of album covers, formats, and options for each page of the album.

Professionally, all our queries were responded to quickly, and we had every confidence at every stage in the performance of Spinning Your Dreams. In a marked difference form many wedding contractors, the original prices are clear and do not hide any VAT or other costs that can blow your budget.

One striking aspect was that Martin and Julia encouraged other photographers amongst the guests to get any shots they wanted. Martin's explanation for this - offered before the wedding - is his confidence that Spinning Your Dreams can offer photographs that amateur photographers will not have the skills to capture. This meant that all the guests were able to participate. In one or two incidents, Martin even agreed to snap a group shot with other people's cameras. While this was a slightly cheeky request from our guests, it shows just how friendly and accommodating Martin and Julia are.

Finally, Martin and Julia make you feel very special. That is difficult to explain - but if you meet them, you will understand how they can help you feel like the most important people in the world on your wedding day.

Sarah and Fraser - 15 June 2006 - Delbury Hall, Shropshire

Sarah and Fraser wanted a very relaxed day and photojournalistic coverage where their photographs were concerned. They fully briefed us and that is indeed what we did for them.

If you have booked your Wedding Date and Venue for 2007-2008. I would encourage you to get in touch with us if you would like us to be there on your Wedding Day and on your Team for that day!

Between June and September next year we only have five Saturdays left!

It won't do any harm to just ring me and see if we are free on your date. We can have a chat on the phone [I love to know what couples are planning for their Weddings and I am just as passionate about it all as they are] - I can send our Price List in an email and you can - of course - come and see us! We do see couples in the evening and some Sundays and weekdays.

I have said this before but please don't leave your Wedding Photography too late - it's the tangible record of your Big Day!

All the best and warm regards. Julia :-)
