  • "We just want to say a massive thank you to Amy and her Portrait Machine! The guests loved it – we all had so much fun and had a good giggle at the pictures. It's a lovely idea for guests to have something unique to keep after the wedding. The personalised card was a really nice touch too. We would whole-heartedly recommend The Portrait Machine!"
