What is your most memorable wedding?
I shot a wedding in December at Pembroke Lodge Richmond park, It was extremely windy and guest were losing hats and hair their was everywhere. After the group shot I suggest to the couple we should use the wind to our advantage and I created an amazing image of the bride wrapped in the grooms arms with her veil flowing behind her and into the scenery. You can never depend on the weather so make the most of what is available.
