"I'm thrilled to be heading to Manchester's final this November for what promises to be a great evening of celebration for the wedding industry. It's been another fantastic year and to turn a passion of mine (photography & editing) into a business has been a real joy.
"One of the most rewarding aspects is to capture moments for couples to look back on their day. I work each day to continually push myself to learn, be creative, support my couples and strive to give everything to each wedding shoot. I'm also humbled to be part of a great network of suppliers here in this region of North Wales who all support each other and in a way, act as one big team. North East Wales is a hotbed of creative talent and to be flying the flag for Wrexham is a genuine honour!"
