Re: How long to leave for photos + PINTEREST LINKS

Congratulations on the engagement Lorie. Time to allocate depends on the how far the locations are from each other. If the church, photo location and reception venue are all close then of course you can allow for more time. It is really dependent on you. The more time you allow the more photos you g...

It would be more sensible, but being men. That is not always our first point of consideration.

Re: Eloping to Thailand

Well besides booking the tickets. You need to start with where in Thailand in particular you wish to get married. Pick the location specifically than just google search some possible venues. Most places should be able to put you in contact with a celebrant if they specialise in weddings and it shoul...

Re: Melbourne CBD photo Locations

This is not something you should trouble yourself with too much as your photographer should have it covered. No doubt if they've been working the industry for sometime they know every alleyway, door frame, landmark, painted wall that would make a great photo.

Re: Dress for first dance / reception

The colour of the second dress is beautiful and would look amazing in photos, one thing to look out for though is whether or not the venue has wood floors as you may end up blending into it. Hope that provides some food for thought.

Re: Rebecca Anne Studios

How does someone like this even get regular work is beyond me? This just doesn't do a disservice to her but every other photographer in the Industry by breeding further distrust. I hope you ladies are able to resolve these issues and get what is rightfully yours. Does this person even have a website...

Re: Wheel cover for car

DHGate or eBay maybe? Or you can pop down to your local Supercheap Auto, Repco or whatever and get some wheel covers and decorate them yourself if you are of the crafty nature.

Re: What makes a good wedding?

I think with speeches its more an issue of content rather than length. If the people making the speeches are charasmatic and great story tellers than they should have no issue entertaining the guests and keeping them captivated. Not everyone has these unique set of skills though so it is an issue.

Re: Hair and Makeup Trials

I've always assumed it was only the bride who participated in the trial as ultimately the MUA is there specifically for her. Just make sure you lock down someone you are happy with and I am sure that talent should be able to handle whatever looks you have picked out for your brides maids.

Re: What makes a good wedding?

I find as long as the bride and groom enjoy themselves everyone else is usually in an upbeat mood. When they are stressed out the mood usually reverberates and affects everyone else. Once the day starts forget about everything that's come before it and just have fun. Your guests are there to share y...

Re: Wedding Videographer needed

If you are after videographers who work seemlessly with whoever you've hired for your photography I recommend either Papercranes or Candid Pro. Having shot along side both companies for weddings I can highly recommend them assuming your budget allows for it. Their work is exceptional and Papercranes...

Re: search site for wedding photographer ?

The issue of money and how much photographers are paid in the industry can be quite taboo, hence the reason it is so hush hush. My prices are easily found on my website as I do not believe there is a need to hide them. If other photographers want to find out my pricing I am sure they'll find ways an...

Re: Using Aisle Runners Outdoors?

I imagine the real issue is keeping it from moving about but there are always work arounds I imagine like little metal eye holes and smaller tent pegs.

Re: Two Wedding Dresses

If it is within your budget you definitely should. With Asian weddings its not uncommon to have 3 dresses that they change from for certain portions of the day. Especially for the reception, I imagine its nice to be able to slip into something a little bit more comfortable to move around in whilst y...

Having met Maggie once before, I can say she is a wonderful person and would only add to your wedding, whilst helping to make the whole process a lot easier I'm sure. =) Either way I hope you have an awesome wedding!

Re: Disposable Cameras at weddings?

The last wedding I went to they used disposal cameras, I think the technology is beyond people now. Digital cameras do everything for you and make it easier to get decent photos. I constantly saw people forgetting to press the extra flash button which would result in a huge number of pitch black pho...
