Claire & Neil Cathcart – Kind Words

Claire & Neil married at West Tower on the 29th August 2013.  Claire has sent me the ‘Kind Words’ below:

When I booked my wedding, I made a promise to myself that I was only going to book with people that were nice, trustworthy and good at their job.

When it came to booking a photographer – It was important to us that we all felt comfortable – no one in our family really relishes having their photo took, I myself suffer from “chandler from friends” face the minute I see a camera!
I made an initial enquiry via email and Sam responded pretty much straight away – she very kindly met with us the following day to show us her work and discuss our requirements – and that was enough for me (after meeting with 12 photographers!) we booked Sam and paid the deposit the following day!
In the run up to the wedding Sam was brilliant.  As a recent bride herself she knew exactly what I was going through and was able to offer lots of advice along the way – she also helped put us at ease with a pre wedding shoot and meeting to go through all the photo’s we wanted on the day – this meant there were no surprises on the day and she knew everyone’s name and role in the wedding.  Sam even came to the rescue when I turned up at a wedding fayre practically in tears because I had to change my florist (3 weeks before the wedding!)

On the wedding day itself Sam was brilliant, she was on hand to cope with nerves, co-ordinating people and even dealing with a wasp sting and a wayward veil!

We picked up our photos last week and I adore them!  They are beautifully done and just the right mix of traditional and reportage – they really tell the story of our day perfectly!
In the beginning of this review I mentioned about only booking people that were nice and professional, Sam is all of those things and more – not only is her work of the highest standard, but she was so lovely to myself and my family when my mum wasn’t very well and she even thinks of the lovely little touches, like giving us a Wedding card with a photo of our wedding rings on and sending me a card for my birthday.  I am so glad I booked Sam, and would happily recommend her to anyone getting married. I don’t actually know how I’d have coped without her! – Thanks again Sam! x

Thank you so much Claire & Neil, I loved every minute of photographing and being part of your very special day xx
