This is often my favourite part of the day. I will arrive a couple of hours before the ceremony to capture the excitement of the Bride and her girls getting ready. I will snap images of you having your hair and make up done, as well as all the details such as the dresses hanging up,
the flowers, perfume and jewellery, etc.
I plan to arrive at the Wedding Venue around 45 minutes before the ceremony to capture images of the Groom and Groomsmen. I want to make sure the guys enjoy having their photographs taken too so I make this lots of fun to get lots of laughs and natural images.
I will stay outside to capture the Bride arriving, then pop back inside to be ready for her walking down the aisle. You will get full coverage throughout the ceremony from lots of different angles. I am very discreet during the ceremony so hopefully you won't even be aware of me being there.
If you are getting married in a church I will not take photograhs during hymns or prayers. Please also make sure the minister/priest allows photography during the ceremony.
The Bridal Party
After the family photographs I will photograph the bridal party all together. I will get a mixture of traditional and fun images, and I do my best to make this a really fun experience to allow me to capture lots of smiles and natural reactions. By this time of day everyone is more relaxed and ready to let their hair down, and this is when the magic happens!!
The Bride & Groom
At this point I will send everyone back inside so it's just the two of you. Hopefully by this time you will both be relaxed and and enjoying your day as these photographs are the most important ones of the day. Again, I keep my photographs as natural as possible but I will still give you some direction so that you both look your best for the camera. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible, catpuring the very best images for you.
