Family group photos are something that time and time again is discussed with our couples, should you have them, how many should you have, what’s the point of them!  Now we will admit, that it’s not always the most fun part of photographing a wedding, and to be honest it’s probably not the most fun for your guests either.  However, they don’t have to be a boring chore.

Over the next 12 months I’m really excited to be covering a year in the life of planning a wedding and each month I’ll be sharing the inside, honest track of what it takes to plan your perfect day as well as what to expect and watch out for along the way. In fact I’ll be writing about the planning journey of real life couple and lovely clients of mine, Hannah and Ben. Today I’m starting with the venue search!

There is SO much to organising a wedding, isn’t there?!! And with each little item on your wedding checklist, there’s a small army of sub-items to check too! For example, planning when your band will start to play, or if you’ll need a DJ afterwards, and how all of that ties in with food! (Because as much as we love a dance, we really can’t wait for the meal, right?!) So here are some real couples’ top tips for getting the most from your wedding band, courtesy of our lovely friends at the fabulous Alive Network.

Let’s face it, a wedding day is a LOOONG day – for both members of the bridal party and the guests too! Whilst you’re enjoying having pictures together, don’t forget your friends and family who’ll be waiting for you – keep them occupied with one (or a few) of these ideas!

Chair covers can hide a multitude of stains, scrapes and unsightly patterns… but let’s be honest, those white polyester covers are pretty hideous! I’ve never been a fan – I cannot understand why some venues still provide grotty chairs which need to be hidden, while others simply buy beautiful Chiavari or elegant wooden chairs for their weddings! Luckily lovely Hollie from Daisy Says I Do has shared her simple solutions with us today.
