What to expect on your wedding day

Here is a little guild I have created for you of a typical Wedding Day (Full Day Bookings). Taking you from your Pre-Wedding Session all the way up to your evening celebrations, typically your first dance.

Pre-Weddings (New to 2018!) 

Bridal Preparation

'Bridal Preparation' means on your wedding day we arrive for bridal prep of your wedding. This allows us to photograph your hair & make-up being finished, and also photograph your detail shots such as flowers, your dress, shoes. We even find some time to grab a few shots of you with your bridesmaid and parents being you go to become MRS! 
(I am able to get some photos of the groom and his best men, but Bridal Prep usually is the bride. Please bare in mind that I am a solo photographer, it's a bit hectic going to different 'getting ready locations'. 



Now it’s time for you to become husband and wife!
During your ceremony, Katie will be at the front of the room, and sometimes she will be at the back of the room or even have an assistant, this basically means you get 2 different perspectives in your final photographs.

Your ceremony is an intimate and emotional moment, so we’re respectful of this by making sure we’re not intrusive. 
(Flash isn't used during the ceremony, not many churches or location like flash being used!)

Group Photographs



Congratulations! After your wedding ceremony, Katie will leave you to let you tend to leave you to circle your guests and will capture natural images. Once the bride and groom are ready the group photographs will be underway. (If you're having an early sit-down meal, please let me know so I know how long we have for group images. (They are best to be taken before your meal). By this point, I will have already received your group photography list prior to your wedding, so it's less stressful on your day! We arrange all the formal group photographs however as I don't personally know your guest's a little help is always grateful! 

Bride & Groom Portraits. 



For your bride & groom portraits, Katie will take the lead in guiding you how to pose. We suggest that these shots are taken after your meal and away from your guests so it's more relaxing and you don't feel 'watched' or 'uncomfortable'. This time of the day is often the most special moment of the day and I aim to get as many shots as possible. I understand by this point your probably fed up of seeing the camera, but it's also the most fun and the photograph you will truely appriecate! 

Speeches, First Dance & Cake Cutting


Usually after your meal and before the 'Bride & Groom Portraits' your speeches will begin, Katie will circulate the room capturing natural reaction moments between you and your guests! Relax, you won't even know I'm there! 
Once your evening guests arrive, the celebrations will continue into the first dance and cutting your delicious cake! I'll probably have a flash on during your first dance to try and overpower
the DJ's colourful lighting! I'll spend up until 8.30pm photographing natural moments.
