Cover of Italian wedding book
Paula and Wayne approached me before they had even secured their preferred wedding venue – the Lakeside Restaurant at Ponderosa in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire. They were over the moon when they managed to get not only the church on the date they wanted – the 16 June, but also their chosen wedding venue and ideal wedding photographer for their lively personalities! These images below are all wedding pictures they chose to have in their storybook wedding album which will be printed in Italy by Graphistudio.
