Wow, what amazing photographers Gary and Paula are! Our wedding was the most wonderful day and I wouldn't have changed the service we received from Red5Studios at all! From our first meeting with the couple, they put us at ease with great likeability, warmth and professional approach which meant that when our wedding day came, it was like having two extra friends along for the journey. They started with bridal preparations and got the key shots of dress, shoes, perfume, flowers etc without imposing on all the girls getting ready and drinking champagne. They then captured the fun and ensured I got lots of shots with the bridesmaids, my parents and of course sneaked off to capture the groom as well. There were natural photos and directed ones but Paula and Gary got the balance just right so that it all added to the fun rather than distracted from it. During the ceremony I was oblivious to all the camera shots so they weren't imposing in any way and didn't detract from all the special moments. The photos we got afterwards were perfect. They made our guests laugh when Gary was climbing on a stone wall to get the all important group shots outside to capture everyone, almost falling in the field below but showing complete dedication! This was a continuing theme of the day as despite the mud and the rain of December weather, Gary and Paula traipsed through fields, muddy turnstyles and down to the river of the village we got married in to get some phenomenal shots, including Gary lying down in the grass to get some creative photos. They must have been freezing as the adrenaline of the day was what was keeping me warm! The time we got on our own for photographs of just us two meant that we also got some special moments to talk about the day and our morning apart getting ready, as the rest of the day was a whirlwind spent with all the other guests. This was one of my favourite parts of the day. My favourite action shot was when I nearly took off in the wind holding my umbrella up. All our escapades outside were watched by our guests who stayed inside in the cosy warmth. However all this was due to us being willing participants and Gary would easily have found alternative (dry) places for us to have photos if we hadn't wanted to do any of this. Paula and Gary are so flexible and had previously asked for a list of 'must have' shots for the day. Since we have got our photos back, everyone who has seen them have said how unique and different they are to other wedding photos they have seen and said they were like photos of models in a magazine rather than the typical wedding photos (of course there are some of those as well!). I can't emphasise how much they helped to make our day perfect and the photos were so brilliant I've looked through them millions of times. The online slideshow set to music was an added bonus as it summarised the day without our guests having to trawl through all 400+ photos. We'd like to say a massive thank you to Paula and Gary.
