Planning a wedding may feel a little overwhelming when you’re thinking about all the different moving parts that make up a wedding day. A wedding is a collaborative event. Any photographer worth their salt knows how much we rely on our partner vendors to create and sculpt the day our couples dream of. That being said, there are two important things to lay out for you straight up.
If you want to do something at your wedding - DO IT
If you don’t want to do something at your wedding - DON’T DO IT
You’re given the beautiful choice to respect tradition or make a new one when planning a wedding. The only thing to make a marriage legal in Australia is for a celebrant to say something along the lines of; ‘I am duly authorised by law to solemnise marriages’ etc… then two witnesses later to make it all legit and you’re married! That’s seriously it. Beyond that you’re able to craft the day that you want for yourselves.
The information presented here in these articles that I’ve written is here to help out my present and future couples as best as I can. Just don’t forget the two dot points above. Do it or Don’t do it. The choice is completely yours. Hosting a wedding in Adelaide is certainly not something that someone does every day, so having a multitude of questions is so fair. I trust you will find all the information useful whether you chose to of ahead with my services or not. If you need anything explained further you’re always welcome to reach out to me.
You may notice that some of the articles reference ‘Bride & Groom’ - I feel it important to clarify that I photograph people of all sexual orientations and don’t discriminate anyone as a wedding photographer. Please switch the wording around as you see fit.
