Before Your Wedding

Woohoo, you’ve booked!

There is often a stretch of time between booking me as your wedding photographer to the wedding day itself. It’s super important for me to get to know my couples beforehand, so here’s a little guide on what will happen before the wedding.

Stay In Touch

I love to hear all about your plans and to see your wedding day come together. Meeting isn’t always possible (I'm an experienced Skype/Facetimer!), but if you’re able to come over to me in Nottingham I’d love to meet you face-to-face. I can even bring my camera along for an adventure if you’d like an Engagement Shoot, head over to that link for more information and read about what to expect here. Otherwise you can ask me questions at any time!

If you’re on Instagram, follow me @charlottejoplingphotography. I’m on Facebook too. This is a great way to see what I’ve been up to recently and some couples have found it useful for inspiration.

Final Payment

Around four to six weeks before your wedding, I’ll send you an invoice for the final balance payment, which is due 28 days before your date.

Details For The Day

I’ll send you my 'Day in Detail' form at least 4 weeks before your wedding. This asks for all the information I need to know about the day, so you don’t need to create your own brief to send me. The form will include the timings on the day, locations, your list of group photos and other bits and pieces I need to know.

Once you’ve returned the form to me, we’ll have a final catch up over the phone or via Skype/Facetime and then I’ll next see you on the big day! 

This is the first installment in my 'Wedding Photography Guide' series, so I hope it's been useful to you!? Please pop back to see the latest posts to help you plan your wedding day. You can also check out my Blog for recent weddings.

Please give me a shout should you like a chat, advice or have any questions!
