What is your most memorable wedding?
I have 3 really memorable weddings. Of course my own (Brighton Pier 2005). My cousin's Star Wars and toadstool themed wedding (my husband photographed this one) and Rachel and Joe's that I photographed in September last year because it was very funny and they got all their friends and family involved in putting it together and it was a really lovely day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A really lovely one of you - wether it's as you say your vows, the first kiss, the first dance or a posed portrait taken in that 'bit in between'. I also love a group photo because you should get a least one photo with everyone of your guests (although there is usually somebody missing!!)

I did GCSE and A Level photography in the 90's and then didn't really touch a camera until I met my husband. As an avid a photographer himself it was a case of if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
