Timing It Just Right!


Timing is one of the major factors to consider with any wedding. Bride & Grooms chat in detail with me a month before their wedding so together we can work out the timing.

How can you be sure you have organised everything to ensure you make it to the ceremony on time? This issue is usually more of a concern for the girls because they have hair and make-up appointments. It doesn’t matter if you travel to the hair and make-up artists or if they come to you – timing is important.

The more girls needing to have their hair and make-up done, the more an issue time will be. No one wants to be stressed on their wedding day because they are running late to the ceremony!

My advice to brides is to talk to the hair and make-up artist about the timing carefully. Ask them how much time they need to guarantee you will be finished on time. Then if you have to travel to them – add this time as well. That way, you can allow enough time to get home again.

It isn’t a bad idea to add another twenty minutes to your timing, so you have a little time up your sleeve. Another idea is to delegate a member of the bridal party to keep an eye on their watch. This way you can relax knowing everything has been well organised and someone is keeping an eye on the time for you.

Plan for Time Out!

Relaxing After the Wedding Ceremony

Today’s weddings are less formal than they have ever been. Though, it is often the case that ‘relaxed’ weddings take just as much planning as formal ones.

No one wishes to experience stress on their wedding day so here is a tip to think about. Organise a basket of refreshments (wine, water & nibbles etc.) to be served to you as soon as you arrive at your photographic location.

Just imagine relaxing while you sip your glass of wine and enjoy the company of your closet friends (i.e. the bridal party). It may only be ten minutes you allocate for this, but in my experience it can be a wonderful de-stressor and a great opportunity for candid photography.
