A photographers view
So we are days away from Christmas, and only 5 months from our wedding day!!! We have been very busy these past 9 months with wedding planning, making decisions and securing our favourite suppliers. To my surprise some of the suppliers I thought were safe to book just a few months before the big day were already booked up over a year ahead so when you know what you want get it booked!
I wanted to put another blog together about our wedding to tell you everything I have learned on our planning journey so far, and to tell you about some of our fantastic suppliers of course.
Let’s start with…
I started looking early on in the planning process as I knew it would be hard to find a something a little different. The wonderful Cara who owns ‘Story of my dress‘ has the perfect business and dress selection. She hand picks vintage dresses for brides to redesign and change as they wish. Alongside these wonderful old dresses she has also created her own line of wedding dresses that are so cool I could rave about them all day! I had actually been following Cara’s work for a few years before I got engaged so when I spotted her stand at a wedding fair at our venue, I just knew it was meant to be.
The best piece of advice I can give you as a wedding photographer to a bride would be don’t be too precious about your dress on the day. No matter how big, glamorous or boho the design of the dress is don’t worry about it getting a little dirty on your wedding day, it happens to every bride and it’s all part of the fun. It will almost certainly collect dust, maybe a few leaves and possibly even the odd bug but you must embrace it! Head out in any weather and get some awesome photos with the love of your life, the marks and stains on your dress are all part of the story.
