Every wedding is different, and we encourage all couples to carefully consider what is important to them on the day. It is YOUR day after all and after so much planning, it’s important to enjoy the day itself.
What we do offer is a general guideline that can help ensure there the day runs as smoothly as possible so you can take in all the little moments.
One thing to consider is the sunset time on your wedding day as this changes throughout the year depending on the season. If you would like the beautiful glow of the sunset in your wedding photos, the hour in the lead up to the sunset is ideal.
An example timeline:
3.30 Ceremony conclude, congratulations from family and friends – breathe in this moment!
4pm Group photo and family photos
4.30pm Bridal party and couple photos on location or a pre-determined location (we always recommend some refreshments at this time so you have your own “inner circle party” and enjoy this special time together)
6.30pm Photos conclude – time to join the reception and dance the night away!
Some couples prefer a “first look” shoot before the ceremony so they can join in the celebrations with their guests straight after the ceremony.
Others preferred “candid only” photographs with a photojournalistic approach to the wedding day.
Have a think about what is most important to you as a couple…this is an exciting time!
