- Remember the very best photos are totally unposed
- Water, don’t forget to drink water. Have a water bottle with you… especially if it is hot outside.
- Remember that everything takes longer than anticipated
- The bride needs to make it clear what she expects from her bridesmaids.Can you go to the toilet unaided,who touches up your make up?
- If you’re likely to receive money or gift vouchers on the day think about what you’re going to do with them.I know a bride who remembered she’d been given gift envelopes the morning after her wedding and it took days to remember who she gave them to.
Darbi G Photography has some great tips on her blog. Please follow the link below
I belong to some excellent online photographic forums and one discussion recently has been around the best advice you would give to a bride. This could take several posts but the following are the most important for me:
- During the kiss, kiss for longer or kiss twice
- Choose your bouquet carefully and discuss with your florist how you’re going to carry it, remember that your height and dress style will impact on this. A well chosen bouquet is a real god send to a photographer and will help to provide a focal point in so many of your photos
- Delegate as much as you possibly can, why save a few pounds by doing the invites if you’ll stress yourself out over it
- Walk slowly down the aisle, enjoy the moment and make eye contact with your friends and loved ones. It makes all the difference to your photos
- Tell the photographer if you’re wearing special earrings,if you’ve received a special present on the morning of the wedding,is your elderly godmother at the wedding……
- Don’t stress over the small stuff
- Don’t feel that young children need to be told to smile or say cheese.Let their personality show through, trust your photographer
- Have fun, show your emotions,don’t worry too much about watching the photographer. If they need you to look at them, they’ll tell you so
