What is your most memorable wedding?

They are all so memorable, but a few to mention that come to mind. I once did a wedding where Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) turned up as a guest! great chatting to him about the plot of game of thrones! I also did a wedding where Sir Tony Robinson was the brides uncle! Both nice little surprises!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, Natural, Relaxed, Fun, Dramatic

What about your business are you most proud of?

Recognition from various photographic bodies, but mostly from making my clients happy, I love being a wedding photographer and nothing gives me more joy than to see people so happy and enamoured with their wedding photos!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As best as you are able enjoy the day, it goes by so fast and almost every weddings I've ever done the bride and groom tell me how quickly it went and how they wish they could have enjoyed things as they happened a little more.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Home made cakes that every guest had to bring as the 'main' wedding cake. I saw some very interesting and very delicious creations!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After an initial enquiry i like to find out all about their wedding, I want to get as excited about it as they do (i always do, I love doing what I do!) then after sending bookings forms and deposit, they are then booked! we keep in touch right up until the wedding day itself (and often long after!) and make sure communication is key.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Those relative shots, especially the older generation... i think this is a very important record.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

A few; a tea ceremony, alpacas in a group shot! and many more random ones!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas! haha! seriously, but the second thing i would say is to just embrace it as much as possible I will always be able to get those epic shots, always! and my aim will be to also keep you dry!

Describe how you got into photography.

I studied photography after traveling to Australia to visit my brother many years ago. I have studied photography for more than 6 years and have several qualifications in photography, processing and lighting to name a few.
