What is your most memorable wedding?
Zoe and Sam, July 2015. We had planned for a fantastic post-wedding photoshoot at a local windmill. On the day itself it was raining when I woke and it continued to rain all day. The wedding car had to be changed due to the weather, the groom had ordered flowers for the bride which were delivered to the wrong address and the wedding car was reversed into the brides dads garden wall. But none of that ruined the day. Everybody enjoyed the day, the photos were fantastic and it showed that no matter how much planning you do, sometimes you just have to improvise.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fun, modern, discreet, helpful, friendly
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being asked if we wanted to be listed in a feature on wedding services within Tatler magazine and then discovering that we were the only photographer in the feature.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Just enjoy it and don't get caught up in the detail.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
An ex-wife attending as a guest at a gay wedding. It just showed the understanding and caring side of both parties even though they were no longer together.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We tend to discuss the day with the couple soon after they have booked, to give us an idea of what they are looking for. Nearer the day, we will look at the venue (either physically or virtually) and try to ascertain the best locations for photos. We will discuss these with the couple a few days before the wedding, when we confirm the days schedule. Everything is relaxed and informal, allowing us to get to know each other and to ensure that everybody knows what is required.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't have one. Every couple are different, as is every wedding.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas. We have a set of lovely ivory ones for the bride, groom and bridesmaids.
Describe how you got into photography.
Jonathan Sheath, our Director and main event photographer, grew up around photography. Having an older brother who was heavily into photography, he could often be found in the darkroom that had been created in a cupboard at their home. His passion was reignited when his daughter decided to take GCSE photography at school, and he spent many hours accompanying her on shoots. After attending a number of professional courses and workshops, he started the company and now specialises in offering reportage style photography combined with classic wedding portraiture.
