What is your most memorable wedding?
I captured a wedding for a couple who live in Mauritius but cam back to the UK to have their wedding. It was held at Hambleton Hall in Oakham. I recall the champagne flowing from dusk till dawn! What remember most was the brides reaction when she viewed her album. It brought tears of joy and she gave me a big hug. A wedding I will always remember.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
After a couple decide to book me to capture their day I ask them to compile a list of group shots. I ask them what they like and do not like. I get to know what must have photographs they want. We speak or meet up before the wedding day and walk through the day. Its a great way too of getting to know each other.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Confetti shot....Confetti supplied by the bride and groom (not many people bring their own) and given to everybody to throw. Its a great shot after the service.
