Gants Mill ~ 7th September 2019
I initially found Sheryl’s work while browsing ‘Rock n Roll Bride’ magazine and instantly fell in love. As we hadn’t even booked a venue, or were even engaged at that point, I just admired her work from afar. Once my partner had proposed and we’d found our venue, Gants Mill, I was looking through ‘GoHen’s top 50 UK Wedding Photographers’ when ‘Oobaloos’ popped up again – it seemed like a sign! I showed her photos to Kevin and he loved them, so I contacted Sheryl and was amazed that she
replied as she was currently on holiday in Florida! Luckily our date was free, even if it was just under two years away.
We met Sheryl for a pre wedding chat and she was so friendly and welcoming, and I remember afterwards saying to my partner – “she’s exactly the kind of person you want around you on your wedding morning”.
About a year later we had our engagement photoshoot, which we were both nervous about. I was especially terrified as I had lost a lot of weight in the lead up to the wedding and was used to hating all photos of myself. After the initial awkwardness on my part, we then just walked around and chatted, while also stopping for the occasional photo. It was extremely laid back and when we got our engagement photos back, I was amazed that I finally had photos that I didn’t entirely pick myself apart on.
Sheryl is certainly a wizard behind the camera and it made us feel even more excited for our wedding day. On the wedding day when Sheryl arrived, she was so laid back and it really did feel like just having a friend with me getting ready. Both Sheryl and Greg, the gentleman who owns Grant’s Mill, just want the best for you. Everything they both do on the day is to ensure that you are having the best day, and they both want everything to just run smoothly.
Receiving our wedding photos made me cry. Sheryl manages to capture the emotion and happiness in every photo – even if that is me pulling some questionable facial expressions. We even showed people in Mexico our sneak peek photos and they commented that it looks like something out of a movie. I show everyone who’s willing to see them, and constantly recommend Sheryl on any of the wedding groups I’m on, because I just cannot speak more highly of her work and the genuinely lovely person she is.
Thank you Sheryl, love Becky and Kev xxx
