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.

    love the album, just a couple of words need changing please,
    1) bride arrives with her Father-in-law
    2) few pictures of parents and Groom’s gran
    that’s all everything else is perfect
    thank you

  2. Reel Life Photos Elaine Says:

    Thanks Paula and Wayne. Just sent it off to Graphistudio now for printing, though it will take an hour or so for all the files to reach them. SO glad you like the design too. I added in pics of you arriving at the venue, so the inside of Ponderosa Lakeside Restaurant could be seen, and to make it clear where you were, so am pleased you approved that too. Its also on our Facebook page under photos in the albums.
    xx Elaine
