What is your most memorable wedding?
My wife would slap me if I said it wasn't my own. It may be a few years ago now, 1984, but I remember it like it was yesterday. We had a fabulous day before heading to the Lake District for our honeymoon later in the day (that's what you did in those days).
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Friendly, flexible, approachable, candid, traditional
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our happy customers
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't plan too far ahead. Any more than 18 months and it seems a lifetime away.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A ferrari turning up unexpectantly to take the groom to the church.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Discuss, shoot, view and all the while ENJOY.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The one that you hadn't thought about beforehand.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
On a hill in the middle of a farmers field just a couple of weeks ago. The pics were stunning. See Facebook.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Sounds daft and obvious but an umbrella. If at all possible allow the photographer to shoot outdoors. As long as the bride is dry we can work round everyone else.
Describe how you got into photography.
Can't remember how or why but I bought my first SLR camera in 1979 at 18 years old (probably because I wanted some good photographs of my girlfriend!!). However I found out sometime later that my grandad, who died before I was born, was also into photography.
