Nicki Storey: get on well with photographers
How do you deal with photographers?
Photographers are usually respectful of the space and light I need, If not I will calmly explain I need the shutters open so I can see what I am doing and that I cannot do eyeliner if they are bumping into me!
How do you deal with wedding planners? Aren’t they too demanding in terms of timing?
I was television trained, so I am a fast worker. Wedding planners usually ask me how much time I need per person. We plan the timetable together and I always add an extra half hour to the timing just in case.
