What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
It's a huge cliche but my advice would be to just enjoy it. When you feel yourself getting stressed out about the colour of the napkins or whether you want a DJ or a band, just remember why you're doing it in the first place.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I once covered a wedding that had a caricaturist at the drinks reception doing portraits of the guests at the bar which I thought was a brilliant idea.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I like to get the couple practising their first dance alone. Gives you a chance to get your dancing shoes warmed up and gives me some truly fantastic intimate photos.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A photo of 2 flower girls pretending to sign the register which was adorable.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
If you're feeling adventurous, I always carry an umbrella and the reflections in puddles can make for some great dramatic romantic pictures. Alternatively there's always a feature of the venue we can use to our advantage, a staircase, a fire place, a piano, a bar, we just need to get creative!!
Describe how you got into photography.
My (now) husband bought me my first camera 7 years ago and I fell in love immediately (with him and photography.) I started on animals but quickly progressed to people and never looked back. Then in 2018 he saw a post on facebook from a bride who's photographer had taken their money and disappeared and couldn't afford to pay a new photographer. My husband volunteered me. I was absolutely terrified but once I got into it I loved it and couldn't stop smiling for days afterwards and I knew from then that this was what I wanted to do.
