What is your most memorable wedding?

Personal, thoughtful, considerate, bespoke, one-of-a-kind.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The smiles and happy tears on people's faces when they receive the finished product, and the heartfelt thanks I get.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Can I give two? Don't get bogged down in too much detail, all anyone wants is for you to have a good time!! And remember on the day to take some time out together, a little breathing space to remember exactly why you are there and enjoy the moment! I got separated from my husband at our wedding reception and then didn't see him until the dinner as we kept getting stopped by people as we were trying to make our way back to each other!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Tiny glass bottles with a personal message inside from the bride and groom for each guest as favours. Although, I'd also say you don't have to do favours!!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once a couple has commissioned me, I will chat to them about what they want - the best album type for them and what sort of look and colour theme we should go for. I ask them to upload photos onto a secure server, or send me a USB or any other bits they want included, and once I have received this I can start designing. I will send a PDF for approval, to which the couple can make as many changes as they like. Most people are happy with the initial draft, but if not, I'm happy to keep going until you have your perfect album. Once the draft has final approval it then gets sent to the printers and bookbinders before coming back to me as a luxurious album for final checks and packaging!
