Describe your typical process with a couple.
Lots of meetings. I like to meet up lots and lots and really get to know my couples so that on the big day it is more like a friend marrying them. First meeting is usually to discuss the structure of the ceremony, symbolic elements, readings etc. The second meeting is the nitty gritty - when you met, where you met, when you knew you had fallen in love, how the proposal went and things you want for the future. The third meeting is usually at the venue and a wee run through of who stands where and timings etc to make the couple feel at ease.

ooohhh I had a wedding that wanted the dogs for ring-bearers....that was interesting!

Getting to know everyone involved in your wedding. So it feels like it's you and a bunch of friends putting it all together.
