A wedding is months, sometimes years, in planning, and before you know it, the happiest day of your life is over and all you have left are your memories. Help jog your memory with a guest book, and some beautiful photographs!
Choose the right photographer and you’ll be left with lots of stunning images of your day that capture the atmosphere and vibe, but also all the tiny details that might otherwise be forgotten. The right photographer will be able to guide you through the day without you even noticing and make it a very relaxed and fun experience.
Before the Ceremony
This is really a key part of the day; and there’s so much excitement, nervousness and anticipation, it’s often when the strongest emotions of the day come out. You’ll be with your best friends and your immediate family, so be sure to capture these intimate moments. Have your photographer arrive when your hair and make-up is being done and you’ll be able to get some gorgeous, flattering shots of yourself. It’s an opportunity you might never have again.
It’s a frantic time on the morning of a wedding, but if you’ve picked a good Bournemouth wedding photographer like Nick Rutter nickrutter, you’ll be able to get on with your business and you’ll hardly know he’s there. Keep items like shoes and jewellery in their boxes until you’re ready to put them on. That way, the photographer can take creative shots of them for your album without you missing them, and nothing gets lost.
Take your time. Moments here – seeing each other for the first time, the ring exchange, the kiss – are once in a lifetime. The photographer gets one chance to capture these, so give him the best opportunity and take your time.
