Wedding Tips

Have your engagement ring cleaned before your wedding day.


Create a #hashtag for guests to use at the wedding to upload and tag all your pictures.


Take a few moments at your head table to simply observe your family and friends. It might just be your favourite part of the night.


Guests remember two things the most from weddings- the food and the music. Send them home with good memories.


It’s your wedding, not theirs. Be kind, but don’t try to please everyone.

The easiest way to pee in your wedding dress is to sit on the toilet backward, facing the wall.


Photography recommends: Don’t wear a bra the morning of your wedding. It will leave marks on your back and shoulders that will be visible in pictures.


On your RSVp cards, put a line for a requested song. This way you will know what your guests want to hear and they will get excited when their song comes on.


When getting your wedding dress altered, make sure you can sit in it before they make the dress smaller.


When planning for your honeymoon, don’t just make a list of things to pack but also a list of things to bring back.


Splurge on a new perfume - It is a great way to capture the days memories. Overtime you smell the fragrance, your mind will go to that special day.

Top 10 questions I get asked by prospective clients?


1.I don’t know when to book my session as my baby isn’t here yet?

A.That’s absolutely fine, we recommend booking you’ve newborn session in after your 20-week scan due to the availability we have available every month. But of course you can book later than this too. We book you in on a floating date so that if baby arrives early or a little late we can move you’ve session accordingly.

2.Can we have sibling/ parent shots too?

A.Absolutely! I love getting the whole family involved in session and I feel it’s so important to get as many family images as you can when you have the opportunity to do so.

3.What should we bring with us to the session?

A.I will send you a detailed email once you’ve session is booked in depending on the type of session you have gone for will depend on what you’ve required to bring but we will make sure you have all the details within plenty of time.

4.Am I too late to have photographs of my baby, he/she is over 3 weeks old?

A.No of course not, we now offer a baby’s first photo shoot which is ideally for babies 5 weeks+. Because we know how full on it can be within those first few weeks and you forget to book in a newborn session. The baby’s first photo-shoot is more awake shots and baby as they are but they are still absolutely beautiful.

5.How much do you charge?

A.This depends on the session type you can find the information and session cost for each individual session we offer on the pages. All our product pricing in over on the product page.

6.Can we have a mixture of studio and location for our session?

A.If you’ve having a family session they absolutely yes! We do not offer mixed for newborn and baby photograph. However the location will be within Ickwell due to the length of your session.
