What is your most memorable wedding?
Cripps Barn, Cirencester, December 2020. This was a wedding with Covid restrictions and proved to me that don't you need a lot of people to have a fantastic wedding with lovely photographs.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, Friendly, Romantic, Fun, Details
What about your business are you most proud of?
I made it happen.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try and have a face-to-face discussion with all suppliers before booking them. Don't just rely on email.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
This varies by wedding and venue. I think sparklers can look great when used a night and I always bring confetti - it's surprising how many couples forget.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always like to schedule a video call ahead of any booking, so I can understand what you want from your photographer and give you an opportunity to get to know me and my approach. If you go ahead and book me, I'll follow that up with another call or face-to-face meeting (ideally at the venue) closer to your big day to finalise timings and any specific photo requirements.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Animal portraits of the cows and ducks at Hedsor House.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Find somewhere at your venue that has a good source of natural light, but ideally not a window. Skylights are good, or a large covered porch. This will help to make sure you get the best light possible for any group shots you may want.
Describe how you got into photography.
I've been a keen photographer since I was a young boy, so it was a natural progression.
