What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was my first wedding after lockdown, it was so amazing to be back doing what I love and the bride and bridal party were lovely. They got married at Alcumlow Wedding Barn which is a gorgeous venue, although it had forecast rain it turned out to be a beautiful warm and sunny day and the bride was able to get married outside - it was a fabulous way to get back into the swing of weddings!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once I have received an enquiry I will get a quote organised and sent out along with a contract for the bride, I will then book in the trial and send out a pre-trial checklist so that the bride has all of the information needed. We will complete a detailed trial 6-8 weeks before the wedding in which we will work together to create a look that the bride/bridal party love, I will be on hand any time before the day to answer questions and offer support. I design a schedule for the wedding day to ensure that the day runs smoothly, I will arrive on the day in plenty of time and with a friendly, positive achieved.
