What is your most memorable wedding?
I've had quite a few but one of my favourite memories is one of my bride's who 'borrowed' the hotel's golf buggy. She rode around the wedding party in it, waving as she sped on by. It was fabulous - everyone was laughing and it made some fantastic pictures!

What about your business are you most proud of?
I live for weddings, in the 10+ years I've been doing this my passion has never once dipped. I love weddings and how each one is different.
You never quite know how the day is going to go (even with all the best planning!). I love how emotional the day is, how truly special and intimate it is. I never take my being there for granted.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Never lose sight that 'It's your day!'. So many of my couples try to make everyone else happy. Most people just want to see you happy and are there to share your big day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Music sheets/lyrics tied around the jars on the tables. It added that touch that was all about them, and also was a talking point for the guests too.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
One with your closest family and siblings. I still use my own wedding pictures taken for Fathers Day, Mothers Day, etc. These pictures will be passed down for years to come.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
One of bride's had her horse brought to the reception and wanted a picture. It was stunning, I love it when couples' want their furry loved one's involved in the day also.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Planning - plan for it and then it's no surprise. Make sure your venue works for you should the weather turn and make back up plans.
Describe how you got into photography.
I studied photography as I was taking pictures as a hobby and loved it. Soon after getting my qualifications I wanted to start up my business, so did. I never looked back.
