- The days are warmer and the evenings are longer – but it can get windy! I love a veil blowing in the breeze. They can help create some georgeous shots but only if it’s securily pinned on, and not too tight to cause a headache. Your hairdresser should be able to give you some tips on keeping your veil in place until the reception (when they seem to have served their purpose)
- Do you have hay fever? Speak to your florist about your flowers. Maybe consider talking to your doctor about temporary relief for the day (try this beforehand so you know how you’ll react).
- Daylight savings is on Sunday 4th October 2015 where we turn our clock forward at 2am. Yep, I’ve seen guests turn up exactly 1 hour late. If you wedding is on Daylight Savings Sunday, I suggest you mention it in your invitations, just in case.
- Spring brings lots of events, especially in the city. Check what else may be happening on the day and let your photographer and drivers know – don’t get stuck in event traffic or roadworks on your way to your favorite location or worse, the ceremony
- Swap mobile numbers with your photographer and a phone with the bridal party on the day but please remember to switch off during the ceremony – obvious I know but ….
- Let your suppliers such as flowers, cars, video know of any change in locations.
- My friends call me the backup queen (batteries, cameras, flash … almost everything!) and I’m a huge fan of having a location backup plan just in case and especially in Melbourne with unpredictable weather. We’ll chat about having a plan B at your wedding consultation. Of course, I have my brollies & they make for great photos if you’re happy to brave it.
- You trial you hair and makeup – why not your photography with an engagement portrait session. I have a wonderful e-session addition we can talk about at your wedding consultation. I usually recommend we trial a location and get some magical engagement portraits. Clients have used these images on their invitations and guest books for your wedding day.
