Houses of Parliament in London including St Mary's Undercroft and the Queen's private quarters ...... stunning locations albeit guards with sub-machine guns gave a new definition to shotgun wedding !

What about your business are you most proud of?
I actually enjoy weddings and I think that reflects in my relaxed and friendly style during the day that couples regularly comment on !
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Lead from the front. Whatever happens during your day, whether something doesn't go quite to plan, whether it rains at the wrong moment, smile, enjoy yourselves and lead from the front because if you are seen to be loving the day then your guests will follow your lead !
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Loved the bride's Dad who knew it would be a very hot day so booked a local ice cream van to turn up for just after the service. Probably the lowest cost element of the wedding buy one of the most popular !
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Depending on COVID restrictions, meet up, talk weddings, look at albums, walk away and leave couple to think without a "hard sell", hopefully agree a booking, check on details pre-wedding and then have a great day !
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That's a tough one but if I can get it, shooting over the shoulder of the bride as she enters the service room so that I can see the face of the groom as he looks back and sees his glorious bride for the first time !
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Groomsmen racing across a field with their trousers around their ankles ..... and no, I didn't get it either !
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Smiles ..... lots of smiles. Props such as wellies and umbrellas can be good but always smiles. The weather never ruins a wedding, only the reaction to the wedding can ruin it !
Describe how you got into photography.
Mid life crisis and wanting to chase the dream of earning a living from something I loved doing !
