What is your most memorable wedding?
In truth they all are in their own way. However I'll never forget a fancy dress themed wedding I was asked to do a few years ago where the bride was Princess Leia and the groom was Han Solo. It wasn't Star Wars themed only so I went as Austin Powers....channeling Austin for the day was a laugh I must admit. Yeah baby!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One wedding planner asked for wedding photographs for couples who were invited to a wedding and there were various images throughout the years. One couple had been married for 56 years and we replicated their wedding photograph as best we could whilst they held the photograph in the shot.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We first have a no obligation and we MEAN a no obligation chat to listen to the happy couples requirements. We're interested in every aspect of their day. We follow that up with a meeting six to eight weeks before the big day and cover every aspect of the couples requirements so nothing is left to chance on the big day. We scout the venues to obtain the best possible results and familiarise ourselves with where we are. We also speak to the main stakeholders in the day such as registrars, make up artists etc to see how we can best work together to ensure the day is as enjoyable as possible. We very much believe in the 'fail to plan then plan to fail' dictum.
