What is your most memorable wedding?
The one where Sir John Hurt was sitting in the front row, and I got to photograph the wonderful, iconic (and very lovely) actor!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Soulful, unsentimental, Wes-Anderson-esque, equality-focused.
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I keep my prices low, and also divert part of the fee to charity. I don't want my business to be part of the 'wedding industrial complex' so want to be ethical in both my pricing and also by contributing to good causes through it.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Tell your DJ to play 'Everywhere' by Fleetwood Mac as the post-first dance floor filler! It works a treat every single time.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The toilets at the reception venue being filled by photographs of the couple!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I provide loads of information on my website, but I also have a thorough pre wedding discussion with them to find out what they do and don't want from their weddings. By doing this, it means that on the day itself, I pretty much leave the couple alone, and I snap away, knowing exactly what they want.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The parting shot. I love to end the story of a couple's wedding day, with a final photo of them looking tired, maybe a little drunk, but very happy.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I took photos at a naturist wedding once, so you can imagine that all the photos were kind of... different.
And in case you were wondering, the bride did actually wear a veil, and the groom did wear a bow tie. So, they did actually dress up for the wedding.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Describe how you got into photography.
As the youngest of 3 kids I was never allowed to take family pictures, I was the cute one who had to BE in every picture. So, that made the camera an object of desire until I got my first camera at 17. Never looked back after that, and eventually went on to do an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary at the London College of Communication. I still do some photojournalism work, but I honestly love photographing weddings more than anything else.
