It’s that time of year again, and for those lucky ladies who got engaged over Christmas, New Year, or even this coming Sunday (good luck chaps!), once you’ve set a date, then wedding venue, dress and wedding photography should all be the first things on your list.

The internet has been a wonderful invention; it allows you to look at hundreds of different suppliers from the comfort of your own home. When it comes to venues, you might make a shortlist (and I’d thoroughly recommend Hotel du Vin, having got married there myself!) but you wouldn’t dream of booking without going to actually look round. The same thing applies to wedding photography – whilst the internet is going to give you an insight into a photographers work, nothing can beat seeing images up close and personal in print – be that large display prints or in stunning, luxurious wedding photography albums. Another reason to meet face-to-face is that, unless you book the most pure. documentary photographer (who may only say hello and goodbye on the day), you will spend quite a bit of time with your photographer. By meeting them, you can get a feel for their personality and how you may get on during the wedding – this is so important! You could book the world’s best photographer, but if you hate them, the images will likely show it!

If a permanent, stunning visual record of your wedding day is high on your list of priorities, then do please come along, say Hi, chat through your plans, see some of my work and really get a feel for what you’ll be getting if you ask me to photograph your wedding!

So, what better way to start planning your wedding day and get some ideas than coming along on Sunday, 21st February to the wedding fayre at Hotel du Vin, Tunbridge Wells. The fayre is open from 10:30am until 3pm, entry is free and bride and groom get a free glass of bubbly!

Hope to see you then!

If you’d like to talk prior the show about your photography, then do please get in touch with me.
