Beyond the usual advice which I offer people who ask me how to go about choosing a wedding photographer (stuff like – make a shortlist of your favourites, go meet them in person, look at plenty of their work, compare and contrast websites, what do your instincts tell you, are they a people person), I try to think of how I would want my own wedding captured. And to be honest, one of the priorities for me personally is that the little details are not forgotten about. As a photographer, I know for a fact that if I keep my eyes open and stay alert throughout the wedding day, even during downtime like when the meal is being served for example, you can pick up so much and capture so much stuff that’s reflective of the couple’s personality. A wedding is one of the few days in people’s lives that they get to show off to their family and friends their own personal tastes and styles. That’s a big deal. The other is when you invite the family round for Christmas dinner. Whether it’s a table centre piece, the favours, the invites, the order of service, the colour scheme of the table linen, the bridesmaids dresses, the ushers suits, the tie pins and of course the wedding dress itself and indeed everything a bride wears. If you pay close attention, everywhere you look is a little something which the bride & groom have given very special thought to. I know if it was me, I wouldn’t want any of that to be overlooked.
