Top tips from Bath photographer Steve Lee Photoworks: Image 1 Are you starting to get anxious about having a camera on you all day for your wedding? We ask Bath wedding photographer Steve Lee Photoworks what you can expect...

I totally get this as my wife and I were the camera-shy types! Combined with a busy wedding-day schedule it can feel a bit much. Fast forward 15 years and I now use my natural skills to put my couples at ease. Here's what to expect...

- I always have an initial consultation with my couples on FaceTime or Zoom, followed by a face-to-face chat over a coffee. This means you'll see a friendly face on the day and not a stranger.

- For brides, I'll create some fun and relaxed shots of you getting ready with your party. You'll be completely comfortable surrounded by your best girls, so the formal shots will flow smoothly from there.

- I create a chilled-out atmosphere with the grooms. Having a bit of banter is an excellent way for me to capture the bond between a group of friends. As we go outside, we can get some more formal shots too.

- For the couple portraits, I always allow a 20 to 30-minute session shortly after the ceremony. During this little breather, I can get some intimate portraits. It's a great opportunity for you to be yourselves as you take a stroll around your venue, whispering to each other or being playful and getting the most romantic images.
