Getting married? Fabulous! Got your ring, saved your date and booked your venue? Hurrah! Happy days. Sooner rather than later you should consider booking a wedding photographer. A wedding is a wonderful whirlwind of a day and you promise yourself you’ll remember every detail. But the reality is that you won’t. Investing in a good wedding photographer whose style suits yours is the best way of capturing all those lovely details and happy moments. Whether it is expected moments such as a ring exchange, cake cutting or a first dance, or the unexpected but equally delightful. Having someone with the skill, equipment, technique and flair to do you justice will be well worth the money. If you choose to rely on friends and family taking snaps, you run the risk that you may end up with no decent pictures at all.
There are lots of photographers out there with different styles catering to different budgets. But remember, no one is going to work for ‘exposure’ so consider maybe cutting back on the butter sculptures and allocating a sensible portion of your budget to preserving your beautiful day. Because once the confetti has settled and your guests have all gone home, your pictures will help you recall the loveliness of your wedding more than anything else. A good photographer will get to know you before your big day and help you to relax, make you laugh and take the stress out of having your picture taken.

*There are lots of great professionals out there but I will only ever recommend local suppliers that I know and trust never to let their clients down, who do a great job at a competitive price.
