BRIDAL PREPARATION

I love this part of the day for the tension building excitement. I document all your pretty details. Invitations, Dress, Shoes, Garter, Perfume and everything that you want to remembered on your big day.

GROOM PREPARATION

Not all chaps want to document ‘getting ready’ so maybe we could meet you at the bar pre-ceremony to capture some last minute antics with your Groomsmen. But if you do, we would love to be there to snap some natural, documentary style images of you and your friends during your preparation.

WEDDING CEREMONY

Maybe you are singing your vows or getting married by a friend on a beach? Whichever way you choose to tie the knot this is the time for us to be as inconspicuous as possible. If you are having a religious ceremony we may have to check the rules for photography. This is important information to find out in advance so you know what we will be permitted during your ceremony.

WEDDING RECEPTION

The reception is a great time to take any portraits you may want. These are heirloom memories you will have for years to come! You may decide on a formal look or informal relaxed group gathering. We advise up to 10 groups maximum. Oh and don’t forget if your pooch is attending your big day a portrait with them is a must!

We then capture the details of your Wedding Breakfast and the candid moments of your guests enjoying your reception.

Once the speeches are over you may decide to cut your cake.

COUPLE PORTRAITS

This is probably the only time you will have alone together and our couples always love this part of the day for that reason. Couples portraits take around 20-30 minutes unless you have chosen to drive to a separate location on route to your reception. The best time is golden hour, just before the sun goes down. If your timeline is fixed and you are eating during golden hour perhaps we can capture most of the images beforehand and then sneak out for 5 minutes at sun-down? If you need help with your timeline let us know. We don’t like to pose you too much, this is your time together to go for a stroll, kick off your shoes and just have a damn good giggle about what just happened!

9 Things to consider when selecting your wedding venue

So you’ve chosen a date to get married. Where do you even begin to decide on a wedding venue? Here are a few things to consider that may assist you finding the wedding venue of your dreams!

Nine things to consider when selecting your wedding venue

What three words would you use to describe your ideal wedding day?
Create a vision board on Pinterest, don’t over think it, collect pins that inspire you. Is your dream wedding day: timeless, boho, rustic, grand? This will usually shed some light on your vision and help provide direction in your venue selection.

How do you imagine the space feeling?
Similarly, what words would you use to describe the atmosphere and feeling of your wedding venue? Is it light with a clean colour palette? Is it near the beach or out in the country? It is important to consider the time of the year and the date you are getting married. Be sure to visit your chosen venue around the date you are getting married the previous year. This way you will see it for its reality and daytime lighting. Are the flowers in full bloom is it fully decorated with Christmas baubles?

Will it match your dress code?
If you have always dreamed of wearing an elaborate ball gown wedding dress would this be fitting for a beach side venue? Are you requesting your guests wear black tie? Think about the overall style of your wedding day and the venue will be your best starting point to plan from there.

Now it’s time to consider the details:

How many guests will you have?
Ask your venue their maximum capacity. Will you be able to host all your friends and family? You may need to meet a minimum spend per head or overall guest count, this can vary with season– What is your price point and your priorities?

What contractual obligations come with your venue?
Some venues, only work with certain caterers that have a trusted relationship. Is this the case with your chosen venue? Or may you bring in your own desired caterer and if so what is the cost of this.

Does the vision match the reality?

Having shot various destination weddings I am sure my brides would agree that a venue visit abroad is imperative to a successful destination wedding. take a trip and put yourself in your guests shoes, how easy is it to reach the venue? How about parking or will you be required to book coaches. Enlist the help of a wedding planner as they are vital when organising weddings abroad.

Do you want exclusive use of the venue?

Will other events be held at the venue on the day of your wedding? Where will your guests be able to access indoor and outdoor spaces

Is the venue weather proof?

Take a look at there a back up plan in place for all types of weather: searing heat, heavy rain. You want yourselves and your guests as comfortable as possible

How soon should you book?
Many popular wedding venues book up months (or even years) in advance, some wedding venues in Cardiff have a two year waiting list. If you know it’s the one you want book it!
