I love meeting couples before they book, it’s exciting to hear about their plans, but it can also be a little nerve racking, a bit like going on a first date!  This first meeting is about getting to know each other and finding out if you like each other, after all, your wedding photographer will be with you for a long time on your big day.

As a bride to be I was a Pinterest addict, in fact I think I could have planned several weddings with all the things that inspired me! I was convinced I could be a DIY bride too, but thankfully realised very early on that this was not to be the case.

I think this is why I have such a mixed love-hate relationship with Pinterest, it’s amazing for inspiration and even to find suppliers, I love it for finding recipes for dinner. But when it comes to wedding planning I think there is a fine line between a casual browse for inspiration and losing hours pored over your phone and getting stressed because you can’t recreate the wedding on your board.

If you don’t remember seeing Amanda Karen’s gorgeous shoots on the blog, I should really remind you to check them out… they were some of my highlights in 2015. Getting to know Amanda Karen Photography has been lovely: images are always out of this world, and Amanda is truly lovely – so I’m thrilled to say they’ve joined my little group of handpicked sponsors of the English Wedding Blog. Amanda & James – welcome!
