Paul Norris is the technical and administrative hero of the team.

Living in France Paul is happier behind the scenes of your celebration. Very few photos of him exist.

He is the person that makes sure there are no technical hitches EVER (only matrimonial ones). An Engineer, inventor and creator of upcycled music systems he could be the person who adds that little bit of technical magic to your memorable day.
