What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding I do is memorable in it's own way, I know that sounds really corny but it's true! Every single wedding I do has a unique identity that is all about the couple who I am working with. The best weddings are when the day is planned to reflect the couple completely, this way I've seen handmade decor, totally different timelines for the day and things that suit a couples tastes. A particular favourite of mine was the 'Bramwell Biscuit Bar' but that's just 'cause I love a good bake!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Do what you want! It's as simple as that. Your day; your way!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
It all starts with a meeting over a cuppa and a good chat. I always keep things very informal and casual and these meetings are FAR from a sales pitch! I think it's vitally important to get to know who I am working with and for them to know who I am as a person so they feel comfortable around me. That's why I always meet my couples at least twice before their big days.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't go into any wedding with a set group of photographs to take, I capture things as they happen and the kickass photograph people are going to want come from that foundation of friendship and trust.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I've never been asked for a specific photograph, all of my couples trust my eye and my instincts.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it, it's a part of your day so don't try to ignore it. I've always got wellies and umbrellas with me so there's no stopping us!
Describe how you got into photography.
My grandpa had an old Instamatic 33 when I was a little that I was fascinated with. He left this to me in his will when he passed away when I was 9 and since then I've always had a camera in my hand and a viewfinder in front of my eye. I remember sitting on my mom and dad's bed on rainy Saturday mornings looking through old family photographs and love the idea that in 30+ years time people will be showing their children or grandchildren the photographs I took.
