Did you know that Wedding Planners do not just help you plan your wedding from start to finish? In fact, if you don’t want to, you don’t even need to hire them for that part of it. But if your wedding venue doesn’t have a Co-ordinator included, or you have lots of moving parts during your day, or just want some peace of mind, then you can hire a Planner or Co-ordinator to be around on the day to help out.

They will help you with tasks like:

  • Ensuring you and your guests are in the right place at the right time
  • Helping your wedding day stay on time (as best as possible)
  • Co-ordinating suppliers before, during and after your wedding

To put it plainly, Wedding Planners and Co-ordinators are incredible. They can help you finalise your timeline and then allow you the chance to step out of your planning and organising shoes so that you can just enjoy the day and be fully present. The last thing that you want to be doing is running around when you are supposed to be having your hair and makeup done, trying to sort out the florist who has got lost or the cake designer who isn’t sure where they are supposed to set up the cake.

As photographers, we always ensure that we gather as much information about your wedding day and your timeline as possible so that we can be as helpful as possible throughout your wedding day and help to keep you on time (especially when it comes to the Bridal portraits and formal photographs which often happen before your wedding breakfast – the last people you want to annoy is the caterers!); but a Planner or Co-ordinator can help even more than we can!

Getting ready Back In April of this year, we had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Mike & Katie Shaw. This was a special one for us as it happened in the village we live in, Peasedown St John. I always find it interesting when there is a cross-over between people you see every […]

It only takes a 10th of a second for someone to judge you, your website, your product. In this day and age, people do judge a book by its cover. 

Today more than ever having a professional headshot is almost expected. Remember this is the first point of contact for your customers and presenting yourself in your best light is so vital.

Alright, let’s get started! Ok maybe you shouldn’t completely ignore your photographer, but the majority of your photos should be about the two of you. When you look at your wedding and engagement photos, you’ll want to remember how you felt that day, not how you were posed.
Unless you’re a professional model, constantly interacting with the camera will cause you to look stiff and unnatural. interacting with your spouse will make your true self come to life.

Our first tip is to take into consideration any extra time-consuming details that may occur at the beginning of the day while you are getting ready. Do you have a gift to open? Are you exchanging letters with your soon to be spouse? Are there any special moments that you want to have with a loved one? Does your dress or tux take an hour to get into? Scheduling time for each of these things will keep you on track and from falling behind.

Allow for more time than you think you will need.
