A systematic way to selecting your BIG DAY Wedding Photographer

By Gardner T Hamilton For The Knot Wedding Directory

I really don't know how you guys do it !!

I have been a full time professional wedding photographer now for 31 years and from back in the day, when people came to the photographers studio to trudge through album after album in search for the perfect images for their day, until now when brides have to swim through literally thousands of Facebook posts swamping them with photographers and their packages offering this that and the next thing.  In truth I admire people who do their research and find the perfect fit for them.

So how do you start?....Over the years I have seen so many wedding photographers and wedding photography companies come and go, along with trends they provide to ensnare couples to become clients....Let's remember here, we are searching for a Photographer, a Professional, with experience and a proven track record of making people happy with the images of their special…

Say Yes to Madeira!

Elopements and Destination Weddings – What is so great about them? In October last year I married the man of my dreams… in Madeira, Portugal. Neither of us is Portuguese, and we do not live in Portugal. I did not want to elope, since I did want my closest family and friends to be present, but I did want a destination wedding in a great location. The more I think about it, the more I know that I would do it again - we never regretted our decision to get married in Portugal. I do hope that me and my husband get old together, so I hope that that wedding in Madeira was my first and last… So since I am not able to plan any more weddings for myself, I turned very passionate about promoting destination weddings, to make sure that more people can have the time of their lives, just like we did. Soon after seeing what great option destination weddings are, I started my website https://sayyestomadeira.com/en/ with which, next to sharing my travel tips about Madeira, I would lik…

St Ives Harbour Hotel Wedding by Jon O’Connell Photography

The wedding of Tom and Karen who were married at the St Ives Harbour Hotel was blessed with some beautiful weather. Neither Tom or Karen were from the area but St Ives held some special reasons or memories for them to make the decision to get married here.

Both staying at the lovely Harbour Hotel, I was able to move between the preperations of both the bride and groom, documenting each story leading up to the wedding. Tom seemed very relaxed with his brother and best man all getting ready before heading down to the bar for a drink and to meet their guests.

Karen was busy getting ready with her bridesmaid and a few close friends, also looking quite relaxed and all enjoying themselves. I took pictures of some of the details that Karen had scattered around as well as the shoes and her beatiful wedding dress which I hung in a recessed window space so as to also encompass the beautiful sea and coastline in the background.

Once Karen was in her dress we took s…

Exciting ways to announce you are going to get married!

By ​Christine O'Malley Independent Celebrant   You've decided to get married - so how do you let the world know ? The classic way is to put an announcement into the paper but just in case people miss it take a photo and send it out on social media. Wear  it !  Have matching tee shirts made and wear them on a night out with friends.  That should get the conversation going. Go high tech and make a video.  There are lots of sites where you can create a video for free. Making the video can be great fun - choose some of your favourite places and songs and get creative. When you are done - publish on social media. Send a card.  Again there are a number of sites where you can  create a postcard to send to anywhere.  Useful if your family and friends are scattered across the world. Or go all out and have an aeroplane  banner ! Which ever way you choose the announcement is just the beginning of a whole new chapter.  Congrat…
