What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding I take on is a memorable one. My approach is to treat my couples as friends, so each wedding is very special to me. I do have a special memory of a grandma of the groom who was an absolute delight to be around and photograph. She found my address and wrote me a lovely thank you letter which was a very special thing for me to receive.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Describe how you got into photography.
I've always loved photography and did various courses, yet it wasn't until I moved to France that I pursued it as a career. I started with family shoots and then was asked to photograph a woodland wedding. On the day it was like a fireball hit me and I knew at that point, wedding photography is what I wanted to do, and since moving back to the UK I haven't looked back.
