What is your most memorable wedding?
One of my bride's had a brother in the military who she hadn't seen for a long time, she didn't think he would make it to the wedding. However, on the day he surprised everyone and walked her down the aisle. Not only was this a surprise for everyone, including myself, but he had arranged for his military friends to fly over the reception drinks in a Hercules Bomber plane! It was such a fantastic day for my couple, I mean, what a day to remember.

When couples include their heritage, I love it when I see a Scottish wedding & they bring in the piper and offer Haggis for a canapé. Small details can really make a wedding that bit more special.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First I like to have an informal 'getting to know you' chat, during this a couple can ask me anything they like including a bit about me, after all I believe couples invest in me, not the service.
From there I will send over a contract, discuss your requirements, and send you a proposed plan document. Throughout the lead up toy our big day, we will go over details and make any amendments if necessary, unlimited emails and phone-calls are included in the service price.
After your big day, you will be given a keepsake memory of your ceremony.
