Do you have questions about wedding photography? Advice for Brides and Grooms

advice for brides

Over the years I’ve picked up lots of useful information about weddings. As a photographer we’re probably the only people who get to see the wedding in all its stages – the planning, the day itself and the return to the “normality” of everyday life! ūüôā¬†I’ve written quite a few Blog posts with advice for Brides (and Grooms of course!). The only problem is, they’re buried deep in my wedding photography Blog. True, you could search for tags on the categories, but that takes too much time.

So I came up with the idea of creating this “Advice for Brides” page and creating links to those useful hints and tips. There will obviously be some information about wedding photography, but that’s not all. I’ll be posting about things like wedding planning, choosing your wedding venue, the flowers, and that all-important bit to keep everyone happy – protocol!

I’ll keep it updated as we go along and I hope you’ll find it useful. If there’s anything that you’d like advice on then please drop me a line by clicking the box below:
