" I just want couples to have a really loving and beautiful day. I always say to couples that it's an honor to be there with them - it really is! I feel very privileged to be asked to be a part of their day. I can talk until the cows come home and I'm also a bit of a perfectionist... so I really look after my couples!
I've been there and done that... I know what its like to be standing at the end of the aisle, waiting to walk in and see my beloved - the nerves, the excitement - it's brilliant!
I've worked behind-the-scene with weddings for a long time.
We'll laugh, maybe cry, and we'll have an AWESOME ceremony!"
