Wedding day timeline tips for your wedding
I will start of by saying that every couple is different and so is every wedding. These wedding timeline tips are timeline tips for wedding photographs not so much what is right or wrong.
I like to arrive at least an hour before you get in your dress and leave to the ceremony 45 minutes after you get in your dress which is at least 15 minutes before you leave for the ceremony.
Ceremonies all differ. Some are half an hour and some will go past an hour. Again this comes back to the couple and their wedding day.
Formal Family Photographs
I normally start the Formal Family Photographs 10 or so minutes after the end of the ceremony. I don’t like to rush into the photography straight away because it is the first moments of your marriage so enjoy the moments together with your family and friends. The emotions will be very high at this stage and we love to capture the moments and tears of happiness.
Formal family photographs can be beautiful, but because they are more “posed” than a lot of the other photographs we will be taking on the day and there are quite a few people involved, they take a bit more organisation.
Session with Bridal Party
I have found in the past that 15 minutes with the bridal party is just perfect.
Bride & Groom alone
Enjoy these moments because they are the first moments that you are alone as husband and wife. We will need an hour depending on how many locations you would like to go to
This is a good time to relax before you enter the reception. Give yourself a few minutes to relax and do any touch ups to your makeup and so on.
From here onwards enjoy your night and the time with your family and friends.
