Consultation Information

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer

  • Your big day is nearly here!!

    To help me with putting together your day plan, and to get an idea of what will be happening on your wedding day, I'd be grateful if you could complete this form with as much detail as possible.

    There are quite a few questions, but all this information will really help to make the day run smoothly!

    The form is quite long, but there is a 'Save and Continue Later' button below so do make use of that if you need to!

    If you have any questions at all, please drop me a line on [email protected]

    Let's go!

  • Useful on-the-day contact information

  • Please provide names of key members the Bridal Party, and contact numbers if it would be handy for me to reach them on the day.
    (Eg. Maid of Honour, Best Man, Bridesmaids, Ushers, Mother of the Bride/Groom, Father of the Bride/Groom, Siblings etc.)
  • Getting Ready

  • What time will Bridal Prep begin? When will make up/hair begin and what time will bride be getting into her dress?
  • Is there anything I should know about parking here?
  • (If wedding is at a different venue)
  • If yes, please ensure a batch is brought with you on the day of the wedding. It might be an idea to give this to someone who is getting ready with you on the day, or leave it with your other details (jewellery/shoes etc.) for me to capture first thing.
  • I will typically spend the morning with the Bride for her preparations. If you are having a second photographer who will be documenting the Groom preparation, please complete the following details.
  • What time will Groom Preparations begin? What time will the Groom be getting dressed?
  • Is there anything I should know about parking here?
  • (If ceremony is at a different venue)
  • Wedding Ceremony

  • Is there anything I should know about parking here?
  • Who will be reading?
  • If so, when and where?
  • Drinks Reception

  • Please let me know the expected arrival time if travelling to the reception after the ceremony
  • Perhaps a loud-voiced usher, someone from the venue, or a professional toastmaster?
  • Group Photographs

    Please specify names for each group shot – this saves a lot of time on the day! Note that an entire group shot can take up to 15 mins, each family shot can take 4 mins. Please note that a shot of all wedding guests is weather dependent)

    I usually recommend about 8-10 group photos to keep this session to a manageable length for you and your guests, and to ensure you enjoy your day fully (remember you will be stood there for all of them, not enjoying your reception!)

    See below for some suggestions of the most common group shots.
  • Please be sure to include all names to make sure we don't miss anyone out!

    An example list:
    - Bride & Groom with parents, grandparents & siblings
    - Bride & Groom with Bride’s parents
    - Bride & Groom with Bride’s parents & siblings
    - Bride & Groom with Groom’s parents
    - Bride & Groom with Groom’s parents & siblings
    - Bride & Groom with both sets of parents
    - Bride & Groom with full wedding party
    - Bride & Groom with Bridesmaids
    - Bride & Groom with Groomsmen
  • Usually one person for the Bride's side and one for the Groom's side works best. Please let them know that they have been designated to help me gather people! You can provide them with the day plan once it's completed, and group shot list above. Having these helpers will really make the group shots happen much faster and more smoothly for you!
  • Wedding Breakfast & Evening Celebrations

  • If so, what time will it begin?
  • I usually take these from you once you have sat down for your meal, if there's not been an opportunity to capture them in the morning, as it's usually the first time of day I can get a shot of the two wedding rings and your engagement ring together!
  • Who will be speaking?
  • Where shall I/we sit during the meal?
    Who should I talk to about the meal (caterer/venue contact)?
    *Please note to your caterer that it is helpful for me to receive my meal ASAP after the top table during the dinner, so that I can get back to photographing sooner and be in place for speeches, thanks!*
  • What song are you dancing to, and are you doing a choreographed dance?
