Last week I went for a coffee and a chat with Jennifer Jones, a Bridal Stylist based in Warsash, Hampshire. We chatted about ballet (Jennifer used to be a dancer!), wedding dresses and shopping. Jennifer let me in on a some tips for buying your wedding dress, her thoughts on the upcoming bridal trends for 2019/2020, and why you should consider a bridal stylist when planning your wedding…
Finding a UK wedding photographer can be a tricky business! I know when I got married in 2017, even as a wedding professional myself, I found choosing a photographer who was priced right for us, and who’s style I loved, such a confusing process.
So I wanted to write a little about the how’s, what’s and why’s of wedding photography prices in 2019-2020 and hopefully shed some light on this mind-boggling topic.
There is such a huge build up to your wedding day, and so many expectations of what the day will bring. You wake up on the morning of your wedding excited and nervous, people are coming and going all morning, you have to get to the ceremony on time, but not too early… it is very easy to get overwhelmed!
As a wedding photographer, I have experienced many wedding days, and have come to the conclusion that the more relaxed the wedding, the more you and your guests will enjoy yourselves.
Often you have been building up to your wedding day for months, years even and it is easy to get caught up in the finest of details and overwhelmed by the pressure of making sure that every one else has a lovely time.
So here is my advice for a relaxed wedding day.
This beautiful wedding was the first of this season for me. I have known Faith for a long time (we were at school together) and was very excited when she asked me to photograph their day.
The wedding ceremony was at Holy Cross Church, in Woodchurch, Wirral and their reception was in Raby Nurseries, which is beautiful... an outdoor, garden wedding venue.
It was so much fun spending the day with Faith and Rich, seeing old faces from my school days, and meeting friends of theirs from all over the world.
When I met Chloe & Tom back in March, for their beach engagement session, I knew straight away that theirs was going to be a great wedding to photograph! They are such a fun couple and had a wonderful laid back attitude to their wedding, and this came through in the style of the day, from start to finish!
