Your wedding day in detail!

This form enables me to prepare the best that I can for photographing your wedding day. It may ask for information that we have already discussed; this is simply so that I can confirm any changes and put all of the information in one place. Please provide as much detail as possible.

As you know, I will be taking lots of natural, candid photos throughout the whole day as well as at these moments listed on the form.

I will send you a copy of the completed form for your reference.

Photographer normally breaks for 1 hour over wedding breakfast.
If possible, I am always very grateful if a hot meal can be provided for me as it's difficult for me to bring one on the day (I'm not vegetarian and not fussy on food!) If this is not possible, please confirm that there is somewhere on site where I can purchase a meal.

Other moments in the day
On average, group/family photos take between 4 mins per group. Below is what I recommend, of course this changes dependent on circumstances and what your preferences are. 'Immediate Family' implies grandparents, parents, siblings and children of the couple only. This list takes approximately 40 minutes: 1. Bride + Groom plus Bride’s immediate family 2. Bride + Groom plus Bride's grandparents 3. Bride + Groom plus Bride's parents 4. Bride + Groom plus both sets of parents 5. Bride + Groom plus Groom's parents 6. Bride + Groom plus Groom's grandparents 7. Bride + Groom plus Groom's immediate family 8. Bride + Groom plus bridesmaids/ushers/helpers 9. Bride + bridesmaids 10. Groom + groomsmen 11. One photo of all guests photographed from a height (if the venue and daylight is suitable)
Please choose 1 or 2 people that will know the majority of the people required for the photos. I will give them a copy of the photo list so that they can collect everyone together. I generally need to be at the photo area so that I can set up and I’m ready to photograph everyone.
