I am very much risk averse, ie, I look for things that have the potential to go wrong in a ceremony … from the first interview, I tell couples of any perceived risk, and advise of ways to alleviate or manage it. I have a checklist for every wedding and arrive half an hour early on the day, checking that it will all go as planned. The results speak for themselves:
