What is your most memorable wedding?
Tina and Sally got married at Tunnels Beach in Ilfracombe and threw the BEST party ever. Tina is a DJ and Sally works in the West End so music was a huge focus of their wedding and we partied until the early hours having the most fun. The full day was full of so much love and acceptance, I have never been so openly welcomed into a couples day by family and friends.

What about your business are you most proud of?
Making my couples feel at ease when having their photograph taken. I am often described as calming or reassuring, a key part for me capturing authentic moments is making my clients feel comfortable with me so they can trust my process.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
YOU DO YOU! The best weddings and photographs are those that completely reflect you as a couple and focus on the most important thing- your marrying your best friend.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Bride Emily had flowers from every generations wedding bouquet in her wedding florals. Such a personal nod to her nan and her mother.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
For couples photographs I use relaxed prompts and guilded poses with movement to keep you relaxed. Most of the time I will ask you to chat to each other, that way your connection come through and I can photograph that personal sparkle.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The Happy Cuddles. Some of my favourite photos are purely just you, standing with each other, looking at each other having a chat/giggle - those freshly married happy smiles are top tier gold.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Be prepared or embrace it! If you adamant you do not want to go outside for photos, be sure to pick a venue which has an inside option for group photos and portraits that you're happy with. Other than that, just embrace the madness with umbrellas or get a bit wet- some of the most atmospheric moments are in the moody skies. Think the notebook!
Describe how you got into photography.
I studied photography at university and then fell into the world of sales after graduating. After having my daughter I wanted to have a career I was passionate about and proud of, taking my photography full time was the best decision I've ever made (after my husband of course!)
