‘A Touch of Silk was brilliant when helping plan my wedding. Jodie was really friendly and provided a professional service, nothing was too much trouble. Her recommendations and ideas were fab, especially the photographer Jodie recommended. We felt relaxed and he produced an amazing photo album with a great price tag too! Highly recommended service.’
