- I’m a lover of a good wedding, the dress, the flowers, the DIY favours, the kids playing with the confetti on the floor… I love the nervous- excitement beforehand, the passion during the day, and the messy bit at the end! I love it when my couples and families have fun and I love nothing more than photographing them doing just that. Have a look at my website gallery and blog - I can do gorgeous albums, along with simple USB's. Get in touch to discuss your wedding!

What is your most memorable wedding?
One of my first big proper weddings at Hedingham Castle - what an amazing venue and an amazing experience!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Not-Very-Serious-Likes-Cake (OK not 5 adjectives....)
What about your business are you most proud of?
Doing most of the business management myself, I know, it sounds sad, but I'm proud of marketing, doing my tax returns, sorting my insurance out etc. I'm also proud that I can pay my bills by being me :)
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't get bogged down in the details, the day is about you and your love for each other - everything else is just atmosphere :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I really like favours that are charity donations - guests usually get a little pin badge to wear - simple, selfless and perfect :)
Describe your typical process with a couple.
My life evolves around food... so we'll probably meet for a coffee and a chat (biscuits and cake) - before you book - so we know we are right for each other. Once you've booked, then we'll meet about a month before the wedding (more biscuits and cake) - if you've got a pre-wedding shoot then we'll do this at some point between booking and the pre-wedding chat (ice-creams on the beach / pic-nic in the park) Then the wedding day happens (canapes - which I try desperately not to eat!) After the wedding, if you've got a USB then that will be ready to collect or be delivered (more coffee / biscuits / cake - probably) If you've got an album then come to my home office to start the album discussions - so many options for design and covers that I've found it's easier to do this in front of my PC. My office is right next to my kitchen so... yeh... coffee / cake / beer / wine - whatever! I'm probably not good for anyone on a diet!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Bride in the toilet with her Bridesmaids holding up her dress. I wasn't there for actual weewee time - it was just the act of everyone holding the dress up!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Colourful umbrellas and wellys - embrace the fact we live in England :D
