FAQ

-what if it is cloudy or raining on my date?

-the weather is unpredictable at the best of times, a day or twos forecast before is usually a pretty good indication of what the sky should be like on the night. if the forecast is not looking great, we will arrange another date no problem and I can let you know also if the weather is looking ideal on any of the free dates I have too. your payment will not be lost do not worry.
