We couldn't have been happier having Emmylie and Richie document our special day. From the minute they arrived they put us completely at ease. We wanted relaxed shots which they delivered in abundance and our video was incredible as neither of us knew what the other had said until we got it. With the after wedding blues it was the most amazing pick me up and is something we will cherish forever. We couldnt recommend them highly enough and if we could do it all again having Wonder & Magic would be a no brainer for us.
