What is the worst possible thing you can imagine happening on your wedding day? Your alarm not going off and over sleeping? The wedding car breaking down leaving you stranded? Falling over walking down the aisle? Luckily, these will simply remain anxieties and mainly only happen in gossip magazines and very, very rarely in real life. But what about your wedding photos not turning out very well? How would that make you feel?

Lets start by saying this blog post is not cool.

In fact, if it were a person at a house party, it would be the person who is left standing in the kitchen, clutching its glass of wine and awkwardly trying to make conversation with anyone who passes by.

Much cooler blog posts, such as the themed shoots and real weddings wander past with a wry smile. In short it is the geek.

However, like in many a Hollywood teen movie, the geek is sometimes the real hero. This type of blog post is in fact possibly one of the more important ones you will read during your wedding planning.

Hello lovelies! I have a treat for you today – an EXCLUSIVE saving for English Wedding Blog readers for a modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester on the 23rd of June.

I host calligraphy workshops every few weeks – this summer’s dates will be June 23rd and 11th August. We spend 2 – 3 hours on a chilled out Friday afternoon learning to write beautiful letters together, and I honestly love teaching the classes so much!

Choosing someone to photograph the most important day of your life is a daunting task. Search through Google and everyone has a fancy website and the social media accounts all full of beautiful images. How on earth do you make a decision?

You will only know which photographer is right to capture your wedding when you meet them. The main purpose of meeting potential photographers is to make sure that you will be able to trust them and feel comfortable around them. In the digital age it is easy to send an email, but nothing beats meeting face to face. One thing we like to remind couples is that you will spend almost as much time with your photographer during your wedding day as you will with each other, so make sure you both get on with them.
