The wedding day guest List
Maria from Brancaster in North Norfolk said.. ‘‘ its that classic old tale! Who do we invite? We can’t forget this person, what about that person you used to work with 10 years ago? What if we leave out this person? Will they never speak to us or be annoyed etc!? We wished we invited less people and in hindsight it should have been more about quality rather than quantity plus the bigger the wedding reception the harder it is to get round to everyone and always feels like you have a greater pressure to keep everyone happy and entertain everyone!’’
The Wedding Ceremony
Visiting a friends wedding last year in a Suffolk Barn they said to me after they wished the ceremony was a tad shorter. They felt a little bored and perhaps so were the guests!? Keeping it short and sweet may be a better solution. After all, the sooner you are married the sooner the party begins!
The devil is in the detail?
In one breath its easy to say there is an exceptional amount to plan for in a wedding, which means lots of little ideas, bits and bobs, plus after you have spent hours on Pinterest where you had seen someone hang some lights from some white twigs at the end of the aisle, it would seem criminal to leave these little bits out. However a big regret brides and grooms have after the big day is wishing they had not stressed out over all the details ( like the lights and twigs!). Remember its all about the love, laughter and happy ever after. Enjoy your day, it will soon be over and pass before you know it! Detail? Pay a wedding industry supplier and specialist to deal with things like that. Just smile, be happy and soak up the day!

Whilst it is generally been the norm and tradition to book a wedding photographer adding a wedding filmmaker to this mix has a host of long term benefits. A wedding film will have a never ending shelf life and you can watch it again and again like your favourite movie! Plus remember photography misses what video doesn’t….
