Wedding planning hints and tips...

Weddings, that one day that is planned for months (sometimes years) in advance. It’s a day we put our all into it and we only tend to do it once so there’s a lot to learn from the moment you say yes to the proposal! 

 

Luckily I’ve been lucky enough to not only plan my own wedding but to attend a lot of weddings in my years as a wedding photographer so I have a lot of advice and hints and tips that can help you in your planning. I found that whenever I was meeting with couples I was having the same conversations over and over again. It made me realise that there’s a real need for guidance and someone to (virtually) hold your hand as you put together your plans. I think I also just love dishing out advice! Haha! 

I’ve put together some blogs full of things I’ve learnt and I’ll be adding to this regularly too so be sure to keep checking back! My plan is to have blogs on all kinds of topics relating to wedding planning.

 

Now, just as a word of warning, I’m not confessing to have a hidden talent here in either writing or wedding planning. I’m definitely sticking to my day job! But I do enjoy getting my thoughts out on my blog and I know it’s helped couples. Have a read, you don’t have to agree or you may have other thoughts (and please let me know if you do) but I hope you can take a little something from one of them. 

 

It’s well worth beginning with “I’ve just got engaged, now where do I start” even if you’ve actually been engaged for a while. You never know, there might be something you’ve not thought of in there! Grab a cuppa and enjoy! 

 

 

 

I bet your head is spinning with ideas and thoughts about your big day but sitting down and creating a plan from day one can help keep budgets on plan and the disagreements to a minimum (they will happen.

Just remember its wedding related and nothing wrong with your relationship!)

 

 

I treated my wedding photography as just part of a tick list. Something that was a requirement at a wedding but not that important.

 

Looking back I want to bitch slap myself. Not that I didn't end up with some lovely pictures but because I didn't put the importance on the photography that I should have done...

 

I feel like I can dish out advice on this one... Not because I am a photographer but because I have been in your shoes...

You can read my story over on this blog... Its written by me about my own experience and how I cocked the bit up that was MY wedding photography.

You'd think that I would have known better but at the time it just wasn't at the top of my 'Most Important' list.

 

 

Weddings have changed a lot over the years. And I'm not talking hundreds or thousands of years. Im talking since I was a kid...

Like 30-ish years ago. They are pretty unrecognisable aren't they these days,

Couples who are choosing to get married right now are making the day about themselves rather than going along with tradition...

 

 

 

Having an autumnal wedding and want some inspiration? Cakes, stationery & flowers...

 

 

Having a super colourful wedding or just adding pops of colour here and there? It really doesn't matter if you go minimal or full on in your face bright this styled shoot will give you so much inspiration...
