"Right from initial contact Zibi was just awesome! He is such a happy guy and so enthusiastic it’s a great energy to have during your wedding festivities as it definitely puts you at ease. Zibi captured our wedding day and pre wedding events for us over 3 days and we are so glad we choose him as he was fantastic throughout. He always responded to us straight away - there was no waiting around whether it be via text, email or call. This we really appreciated as planning a wedding is stressful and we didn’t have to do any chasing when it came to Zibi. Our beautiful photos were sent to us about 6 weeks after the events which we were amazed about - talk about a speedy service! We will definitely use Zibi again in the future and certainly would not hesitate in recommending him. Thank you so much Zibi! xx"
