What is your most memorable wedding?
I have shoot a wedding for the couple in their 70's. They have been and shared life together for 37 years. When groom found out he was terminally ill, he got onto his knees and proposed. The wedding was perfectly organised in under four weeks. The day was very emotional, surely the one to never forget for me.
