Pink Weddings Magazine Autumn/Winter 2016 - Page 40

PJ And TOne everything we could have ever hoped for and more – it really was the best day of our lives. Our advice to all of you arranging your weddings is firstly to plan, plan and plan again! Keep a list of what your tasks are, keep sub tasks and cross them off. Secondly, make sure you pick an amazing photographer. We looked at three photographers and chose Matt Heath, because after meeting him he totally got our vision for the day and the style of photos we wanted. He also offered a prewedding photo shoot, which I would recommend to anyone, as it gives you time to get to know your photographer. It also makes sure you have the chance to get some great advice on how to stand, pose, and perfect those facial expressions! By the time the wedding day came around, we knew him and he understood us, which took a lot of stress off us and made the photos look amazing. Thirdly, weddings can be expensive. We booked a winter wedding, but the weather turned out great. (We went to a summer wedding and it rained!) Lastly, do what you want to do. Make it fun and personal. It was all about family for us, so having our parents in the centre of wedding plans was exactly what we wanted. 40 » pink weddings magazine
