Wedding Photography - David Mellor

Updatefrom last meeting:
Thanks to everyone that came along to the last meeting and shared their images, some great pictures and I love hearing the stories behind them. I admit I was panicking a bit at 7pm when I only had my own images to share, but thankfully attendees came up with the goods and some sent images from their phones via email and I was able to bring them up during the course of the night.
Lots of positive feedback has been received from attendees, thanks all for making the evening a success!
