Invest your money wisely in ‘Professional Wedding Photography’ to ensure the memories of your big day live on forever, for all the right reasons!
Wedding Venues in Essex are stunning, so how will you choose yours? The majority of the time this will come down to personal preferences such as ‘sentimental value’, ‘look and feel’, ‘facilities’, ‘location’ and ‘budget’ to name but a few. As a photographer I have had the pleasure in photographing in a number of fantastic wedding venues in Essex and can honestly say I have enjoyed each and every one of them come rain or shine.
Here are a few considerations helping to ensure your wedding day is one to remember for all the right reasons.
Planning your big day can be SO exciting and it’s easy to get carried away and miss some obvious considerations not only for you, but also your wedding guests too. Therefore location is ‘key’ in ensuring you and your guests have the best day ever and of course some stunning photos to cherish your day!
Most couples, when planning their wedding need to consider whether to have their wedding celebrations all in one location or split the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations into separate locations.
For example you may choose to get ready in the bridal suite of your country home before heading off downstairs for your wedding ceremony to be followed by your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.
Alternatively you could spend the morning getting ready at a local hotel before heading off to the church for your wedding ceremony after which leave for your chosen venue to meet your guests and family for your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.
If you decide on multiple venues for your wedding day, be sure to realistically plan the timings and travel arrangements. Don’t forget to take into account the number of guests that will be attending your wedding ceremony, parking arrangements and time it takes to move from location to another. Ensure that you add extra time as people may get lost or held up in traffic!
Ensure that you make it a priority to discuss with your photographer your plans and timings as they will be able to offer suggestions and ideas for ensuring that your wedding day can be photographed within the times allocated.
It can sometimes mean that you will need to prioritise the photos that you’d like your photographer to capture. Just as an example; if you would love a photo of you and Dad getting into your horse and cart before your journey to the church but still want the groom and groomsmen’s photos also at the church before you arrive, time will be extremely tight.
As the photographer I need to ensure that I can get to the church, parked, setup and ready for your arrival as well as allow enough time to capture artistic photos of the groom and his groomsmen. This obviously may not be possible and a contingency plan may be needed especially if you don’t want to pay for a second photographer.
