You don’t necessarily need to send out your wedding invitations until around 4-6 months before your wedding date, but with many couples deciding to book their weddings around 18-24 months after getting engaged, it can feel a long time to not let people know about your wedding date!

So, how about sending out a save the date card once you’ve got your wedding date booked in?

Save the dates are a fantastic way of letting your family and friends know that they are invited, to not go away over your wedding day and that you want them to celebrate with you. But sending out both Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations can feel like quite a hassle and not great for the trees either! So why not send them via email!

Now we don’t just mean a quick email to your friends and family saying ‘Yo! Save the 15th August for our wedding next year guys!’

I mean, you are welcome to do that if you would like to! But if you would like something a bit more elegant, with artwork and details personalised to your wedding day, there are several companies out there that help you with this. You can upload your guest list to their website, choose your favourite design (or design your own) and send out your Save the Dates (and invitations) with almost the click of a button. Two of our favourite sites are @Paperlesspost and @Greenvelope. They have a wide range of stunning designs and are both cost-effective and amazing for the environment!

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.
