Of their photographers, Emma recalls, “Steve & Jess from Jess Marks Photography. They were brilliant – so creative and relaxed. We did not even notice them there half the time. The best thing about Steve & Jess is they have a great sense of humour were able to take wonderful candid and relaxed photos that really captured the essence of the day. We do not like having our photo taken, and Jess & Steve really put us and our bridal party at ease. We had such a fun day, and the photos really reflect that. The were absolutely wonderful – their photos have brought tears to many eyes!”
