Morning prep on the day of your wedding
The ‘calm before the storm’ also known as wedding prep has to be one of my favourite parts of the wedding day to photograph.
Whether you are at home or at the venue getting ready, spending some quiet time getting some lovely photos before the madness and the hecticness of the wedding day.
I would recommend hanging out your wedding outfit and putting out all of the jewellery you are wearing with the scent you are wearing also.
Often some of the wedding part has stayed in the room the night before so it is often strewn with clothes/bags and general mess so if you could tidy an area for us to photograph in that would be really helpful. Often there are children involved, running around and I always fully embrace the chaos of children or animals on a wedding morning.
If you are wearing matching dressing gowns or pajamas it’s always good to get a photo in those and also getting in your outfit while a first look with whoever is walking you down the aisle is always such a special moment if it can be orchestrated.
Usually getting into your outfit around an hour before you need to leave for the ceremony is a great idea. This gives you time to have a drink and relax and look beautiful before you head out to marry the love of your life.
