Chapter 4 - Venue & Timing
If there is no special reason to arrive earlier, we usually
arrive 2 hours before the ceremony. During this time we will:
-do a quick briefing with the wp and/or venue manager
- check up on the ceremony setting with the florist
-follow bride's make-up and hair progress
-groom’s dress-up moments with groomsmen
-still life and flat lay shots of details and stationery
-bridal shower shots
-bride dress-up moment
-some intimate formals with mum and/or dad
-if requested: first look/kiss/touch/hug
Please remember it is essential to stay on time so be sure
you calculate the right timing with the wp.
Also very important to know: spring weddings have plenty of
time and you can be more relaxed, sunset is around 8.45pm, but
in September/October days are much shorter.
If we do not know the venue we may do a site inspection to
find perfect spots for the best lighting (family/couple photos).
Also if the wp is not sure about the ceremony set in terms
of light, we’ll be happy to give a technical opinion on it.
