Paul & Melanie made every experience with them memorable, comfortable, and fun. They were open and warm with us from our very first chat and from the engagement photos until the last photo on our wedding day, they were so easy to work with.Sent on 16/10/2018
They really brought out the fun and love in our relationship with so many candid shots and their eye for good lighting and great spots for romantic shots were amazing. We have so many photos to choose from it will be hard to pick which ones we print.
On top of all of the great photos they were patient with our families, our hectic schedule, and how hectic the day can be. Our time spent with them will be some of our most memorable from the day and we can't recommend them enough.
Darlington Studios's reply:Thank you Matt. We had a wonderful time with you and your families! Your day was perfect and we are thankful we got the opportunity to be there to witness it.
