You’ve booked me! Yay! This is going to be one amazing journey - I can’t wait!
So what’s next?
I love meeting up with my couples - I think it’s important that we get to know each other as we’ll be spending a lot of time together on your wedding day! Quite often I am told at weddings by guests that they think I’m friends with the couple which is amazing really. When I hear this I know that I’ve done my job well. To come away from a wedding and your guests question whether you had a photographer there at all is one of the best compliments a candid wedding photographer can get. My aim is to be unseen but everywhere!
Having said that about meeting up, around half of my couples don’t meet me until the day of the wedding and that is absolutely and equally fine too, so if you can’t meet up beforehand, or would rather not that’s no problem. I’m really friendly and approachable and we’ll feel like old friends in no time.
There may be some time (maybe even years!) between booking me and your wedding day so please do stay in touch - I absolutely love to hear how all the wedding plans are coming along! I’m also able to help with supplier reccommendations - florists, DJ’s, bands, videographers, love letters, gin trucks, prosecco vans, Ceilidh bands etc…. because I am super lucky to have worked with some of the absolute best in the business!
Six weeks before your wedding, your remaining balance is due which can be paid by bank transfer. I’ll send over an email reminder about 8 weeks before the big day and around this time I’ll also ask you to complete a final wedding details form too. This will give me all the important details, locations and final timings for your day and your group shots too. All of this is sent over electronically as I’m a huge believer of saving paper and looking after our beautiful planet.
Two weeks before your wedding I’ll be back in touch to say hello and check if anything has changed. Time seems to speed up at this point - before you know it you will be walking down the aisle :)
The day before your wedding I’ll be busy preparing all my equipment. My batteries (and spares) will be charged, my cameras and lenses (and spares) will be cleaned until they sparkle, my SD cards (and spares) will be formatted and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink will be packed up ready to go! At this point I am SO excited for the day ahead and I can’t wait to see you and your guests and how your amazing day will unfold!
