You’ve agreed to marry the love of your life, but that’s only the start of the copious amount of planning required to get your special day just right. From the venue and the colour scheme to the photographs and reception, you will want it all to be perfect. The photographs are an important part to any bride, as they are the eternal visual reminder of your special day.
When looking for a Lancashire wedding photographer, or indeed one based in a town local to you, you will undoubtedly have a number of questions that you want to ask, as well as to peruse their existing portfolio to get an idea of their style of photography and how that compares to your vision of what you are looking for.
With the photographs serving as a memento of the day, you will want to look your best and for this to be captured along with the emotion of the day. Here are a few things you can do to get the best pictures and really enjoy the day’s experience:
Lash it up
To really enhance your eyes, go for individually placed false lashes. This will open up the eyes and accentuate their colour.
Don’t stress, enjoy your day
Revel in the happiness of the day, and remember that a happy couple will translate as such, as opposed to those who feel more self-conscious.
It’s your time to enjoy yourself after all of the build up, hard work and planning. The camera will highlight the genuine feel and emotion of the day, so relax and live in the moment.
This might sound silly, but practice laughing. A fake laugh is known to trigger real laughter, removing any nervousness you may have been harbouring.
Do a dress rehearsal
Many people conduct a practice run of how they will wear their hair and makeup on the actual day. This allows the bride to try out different styles before settling on the perfect look.
Speak with your hair and makeup artist about their availability on the day. It can be helpful if they can stay until after the main photographs to complete any touch up work, which will again be reflected in the quality of the photographs.
Don’t get too hung up on achieving ‘perfectness’
It is easy to overthink the minor intricacies of photos, but your photographer is there to take care of that. Focus instead on how you are feeling, and allow your excitement and happiness to naturally radiate through the photographs.
