Your wedding day is FINALLY here! You’re wearing a gorgeous gown, your husband or wife is looking absolutely stunning, the guests are abuzz and laughter fills the air. But somehow, things don’t turn out as you had hoped. As a London wedding photographer, I have seen this far too often.

What was meant to be a day filled with blissful moments has been riddled with a gazillion questions and fiascos thrown your way. Then just like that, the day ends and you don’t know where all the time went.

Back when our grandparents were tying the knot, dancing was a thing most people did regularly. Almost everyone could at least pull off a makeshift two-step, while others were used to having a full dance card every weekend.

Sadly, this tradition has largely faded away, which is why you and your better half might have considered taking a few dance lessons ahead of your big day.

While you’re preparing your moves, take a moment to consider your guests.

Weddings with plastic and waste are on the way out. It’s time for the industry to catch up: a mini revolution is on the way, and this time it’s not just about trends.

As redundant as polyester chair covers and barbie tiaras, single-use wedding items are starting to sit uncomfortably with couples and suppliers these days. We’re all looking for planet-friendly alternatives, and there are plenty if you just know where to look!

Choosing a London wedding photographer? Ask these 5 things to get to know them!

“How do you know whether a photographer is actually really good at what they do?” I cannot count the number of times Stam and I have been asked this question as London wedding photographers.

 

Choosing your wedding photographer, after all, is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make for your wedding, so that shouldn’t be taken lightly. We know every bride and groom wants to remember their big day through beautiful pictures for generations to come.

No one is really talking about the waste generated by big weddings. It almost feels as though you can’t have a big wedding without a huge impact on the environment… as if most of the wedding media are implying it’s just one day: what harm can a wedding really do, and do you even need to think about sustainable wedding planning?
