Some pictures will be staged, these are mostly just you two or with the entourage before the ceremony and after the group shots.

- How do we book and reserve our wedding date?
Booking your wedding date is very easy, all you need to do is contact me so we can arrange to meet (or a conference call) to discuss your requirements. When you are satisfied with what you see, I require a non refundable booking confirmation of £500 or 50% of the hourly rate and a completed and signed contract. A month before your wedding date, the remaining balance will be due. I only accept card payments and bank transfers. Please contact me for more information.
