One of the key decisions you will make after your choice of partner and setting the date is how and where you will get married? Church, Register Office or Approved Venue? With thousands of new wedding venues, alongside the traditional options of a Register Office or Church, the choice is vast.

Brides magazine.co.uk recently tweeted their top 16 wedding apps and it got me really intrigued. I had no idea there were so many on the market let alone enough to whittle them down to just 16

When looking for a photographer please, please choose someone who you think you will get along with, who puts you at ease and is not in your face or pushy

With Valentine’s Day fading in the memory as quickly as the left-over red roses in buckets on garage forecourts. I got to wondering just how many people actually received a marriage proposal on the day?

Brecon based caterers Purple Carrot run by husband and wife team Simon Brookes and Sara Care always set out to be a bit different – deliciously different as it happens! They’re currently busy holding tastings with engaged couples and arranging menus for two very different weddings that will take place next Christmas.

It’s all about being a bit more subtle about the look you’re trying to achieve. By collecting things yourself to showcase these beautiful flowers that will help to keep costs down, but only increase the effect they will have.

Here in the first of a series of guest blogs The Little Wedding Helper Kirsten Butler gives some great advice on what really matters on the day and why indeed you should give her a call to help you focus on just that.

What has been extra special this week is that one of the weddings that I have photographed was featured in the great little magazine Wedding Ideas.

Who could be more biased than a wedding photographer commenting on the results of a recent survey of one hundred brides? It’s like Captain Birdseye trying to remain impartial on Fish Fingers.
Apparently you can’t buy class but I beg to differ. I’m off to the DVLA website to see if I can get one for my old jalopy.
The world’s largest diamond is about to go on sale.....an astonishing 101.73 carats and twice the size of the last largest diamond to be sold, which went for $9.4 million dollars. I’ll take two thanks!
It is only the second Wedding Fayre I have ever attended, the last one was such an horrendous experience it’s taken me ten years to do another one and I’m glad I did.
The difference between a complete unmitigated disaster and a minor and manageable hiccup, is almost always down to the experience and preparation of the photographer.
As with lots of wedding traditions it seems the cake no longer has to be a three or four tier white square fruitcake iced & covered in marzipan with sugarpaste flowers and roman tower legs
I don’t envy you ladies. Choosing a best man and ushers seems to be a walk in the park compared to the minefield that is the female side of your beautiful day.
I am sure we’ve all been to weddings where we’re ready to chew the usher’s leg off because there seems to be hours between the wedding bit and the reception bit.
If I didn’t love photography so much I would set myself up as a mobile cufflinks salesman moving from wedding venue to wedding venue.
With the largest chunk of the wedding budget going on the venue, couples often try to set their wedding apart by choosing quirky venues.

Choose a Photographer you feel comfortable with.... Try to allow some time for just the two of you.... If you can have a manageable number of group shots.... Make sure you see a full wedding example.... Make sure there are no hidden extra costs.

What is a wedding photographer from Wales doing taking pictures of a mother and daughter in Stroud you may ask?

..... the days of thinking a wedding has to be high season to guarantee the need for suntan lotion and shades are a thing of the past.
Pardon me for saying this, but I am hoping the willy-nilly use of inappropriate filters, over-saturation, tints and blurring will fade into 2012.
