What is your favourite thing about working with Brides to Be?
It would have to be watching their amazing ideas and plans for their special day come to life - right from the initial consultation through to the big day itself. Each and every couple and their wedding are unique and to be able to be a part of the whole process is fantastic.
What inspires you in your work?
One of my favourite quotes has to be from Ansel Adams. "You don't make a photograph with just a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard and the people you have loved". My sources of inspiration are endless. I love trawling through fashion magazines and Pinterest, the paintings of Edgar Degas and the Hollywood photographers of old. Yet most importantly, I'm truly inspired by my clients and their wonderful ideas for their big day. My aim is to capture each and every moment as the day unfolds and to create fine art imagery that is a true reflection of their individual personalities.
Of course each and every wedding I do is unique and special in its own way. Although I do absolutely love it when clients surprise me with a non-traditional theme - the quirkier the better!
Do you have any wedding trend predictions for weddings for 2014?
It's a bit of an obvious one however; I definitely believe that, with regards to bridal couture, lace is still going strong. It is something that is so timeless and elegant, and ever since the Royal Wedding, has been immensely popular. In fact, vintage 20’s and 30’s influences in general are still proving popular for every aspect of a wedding. I also think that the DIY/up-cycling approach is becoming more favourable - I find it great when a Bride has produced her own table décor, wedding favours or stationary and takes great pride in it. Not only can it save a few pennies but it also allows their personality to shine through.
What would be your top tip to share with Brides to Be?
Understandably I'm a teeny bit biased... but I would whole-heartedly recommend budgeting for a professional photographer - someone who you click with (excuse the pun!), whose style you love and someone who will make you feel 100% comfortable and at ease on the day. After months, even years of planning, when your special day finally arrives it will go by in a whirlwind. However, once the day is over, you will have photographs to cherish and reminisce over for a lifetime.
