What is your most memorable wedding?
Not so long a go i shot a wedding at Sopley Mill for the most special couple, the groom had terminal cancer and their wish was to get married. It was super emotional and made me think alot about my priorities in life and changed my outlook on quite a lot of things. The groom passed away 7 wks later which was a tough time but i was glad to have been involved in creating memories for his family and friends to look back on.
