Now that we have your wedding booked, it's really important that I know as much detail as possible about the day in order to make sure it runs smoothly. Below is a questionnaire that will help me to do this. I understand that you may not know every detail straight away but you are very welcome to email me any extra details when they become clear.
 

Date of Wedding:
Date of Wedding:
If more than one location please state all locations that the photographer is required at. (please put full address)
This is usually 2 hours before you plan to leave for the ceremony.
If more than one location please state all locations that the photographer is required at. (please put full address)
Men take a little less time to get ready so I suggest half an hour to an hour before you plan to leave for the venue.
How long does it take to travel from bridal preparation to ceremony and will I be travelling with the guests?
Please include full address and postcode.
How long does it take to travel from ceremony to the reception and will I be travelling with the guests?
I would recommend allowing around 5 minutes per group- this should help you to work out your timing.
I would allow 30minutes plus any travel time per location for photographs. In the summer when the days are longer I recommend splitting your couple shoot and taking some time after dinner to make the most of the evening light. This is a rough guide and you are welcome to make your own preferences.
If you have chosen a full day package I will usually stay for 30minutes to an hour after your first dance. If you are planning other events that you would like photographed later in the evening and past my 10hour day please let me know as then we can chat about extended coverage.
Deaths, divorces etc.
Please list names of people required for each photograph. Each photograph can take around 5 minutes to organise and take so I recommend that we take a maximum of 8 group photographs. You are welcome to send me this list up to a week in advance of the wedding day. I also recommend that you assign an usher or friend to help organise groups of people with me.
Will food be provided for me (and if applicable) my second photographer? *
Weddings are a long day and often in rural locations where it's not easy to nip to the shops! Chat to your caterer as they often provide 'vendor meals' which are a reduced rate main course for anyone working at your wedding. I would really appreciate a plate of hot food but understand if you are not able to provide it.
Are you happy for me to share a preview of your wedding on social media? *
Are you happy for me to blog your wedding? *
Would you like to receive email promotions on products related to your wedding photos like prints or albums? *
I don't do this often but like to send out little discounts from time to time!
Are you happy for me to share your wedding photos with your wedding suppliers after the wedding? *
After the wedding often florists, dress companies and venues are keen to see the photos. I never send suppliers any photos that you have not already seen as I know you are the first people who should view them!
