A wedding photography bible. Seems a bit of a dramatic name for a guide about wedding photography. Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the key elements of the majority of weddings. Some people consider it THE most important part of the wedding after the ceremony. Others just see it as a necessary evil to document the day.
It’s a thorny issue which poses a lot of common questions. How much money should I spend on a photographer? Are they really worth that much? Can Uncle Bob do it just as well? What if I don’t like having my picture taken? Are all wedding photographers the same? Well today we have an infographic from Australian wedding photographer Peter Edwards who has created the wedding photography bible. This handy guide will help you get the most out of your wedding photography from styles, to posing. An image checklist, to the important questions to ask your prospective photographer.
So enjoy the infographic, and more importantly, your wedding images for many years to come.
Wedding Photography Bible
Thankyou to Peter Edwards Photos for their invaluable advice. Do you have any more tips to offer couples choosing their wedding photographer? Would love to hear from you.
Today I have a little bit of colour complementing wedding inspiration for you. never be afraid to mix your colours. You could go for a colour clash combination such as pink and yellow. Or opt for colours that complement each other in nature. This is where we are going today with some coral and sage wedding inspiration. Think colour pop coral and soft sage green. A perfect harmonious pairing. A bit like the perfect wedding union.
Coral and Sage Wedding Inspiration
Set the scene for your big day with some beautiful wedding stationery.
I love the soft pastel coral and sage of this design by Momental Designs.
Or the vibrant, almost tropical feel to this floral design by Jar of Ideas Design Studio.
This colour combination really has a fresh and contemporary look. It is light with just enough of a pop of colour to create that wow factor.
Love the sage green table cloths contrasting with the white wooden chairs and coral floral arrangements.
Or opt for white line with contrasting sage green runners and coral napkins. Add more colour with coral blooms in bottles of varying sizes. Read more
These days, weddings can be very expensive, yet they all tend to have the same atmosphere. Your wedding day should be something that it is unique and something that will stand out in the memory, which is why an alternative type of venue could be the answer. Today’s post, alternative wedding locations – luxury boats, will illustrate that a boat is a great place to get married if you want your day to be memorable.
Alternative Wedding Locations – Luxury Boats
Get married on a cruise
If you are taking a cruise, then you may be able to arrange to get married on board the ship. Most of the larger boats will have a chapel, or there are other function rooms available that you might be able to use. You might even be able to arrange for some guests to come on board the ship for a few hours for the wedding and the reception if they choose not to go on the cruise with you. The larger boats will have all the facilities for both the wedding and the reception, with both large and small dining areas that may be available to you. This is a great option if you want the facilities of a large resort but a small, intimate wedding.
Why not a smaller luxury boat?
There are plenty of smaller options for those who don’t want to take the cruise route to getting married on a ship. A superyacht such as the Lady Christine, owned by Lord Laidlaw, is a good example of luxury on a grand scale. With Lord Laidlaw set to make Ï17m selling cars, you can be sure that no expense was spared in the building and creation of the Lady Christine. The boat was launched just five years ago and was built at Royal Van Lent Shipyard with Lord Laidlaw overseeing every last detail of the build. A smaller boat such as this is perfect if you want to keep the event small, with just the bride and groom and perhaps a few close friends or family.
Can you believe this is the interior of a boat?
If you do decide that a luxury boat is the ideal venue for your wedding, then you will be in good company. Celebrities David Charvet and Brooke Burke chose to get married on a boat off the coast of St Bart’s, and Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, recently got married on board a yacht. People visiting the Greek islands can arrange to get married on board a catamaran and then sail around the islands for their honeymoon.
With the ceremony and reception all catered for in one place, it can save you not only money but also time, and your day will still have the wow factor. Planning for your wedding on a luxury boat is also generally easier as there is usually a wedding or event planner that you can liaise with to ensure that all the details are taken care of. Whether you want to go abroad to get married on a luxury boat or try something closer to home, a solution is not far away.
Your wedding day is one of the days in your life that will forever be in your memory. Since you know that, it is no wonder that you want your hair to look as beautiful and perfect as possible on your big day. Celebrities are known for spending a lot of attention on having the best wedding hair, so today we are looking at celebrity wedding hairstyle inspiration.
To get great results, it is best to consult with a professional such as Toni & Guy Liverpool. They can advise you on styles that will suit you and the dress you have chosen.
Here are some styles to inspire you when planning your dream wedding.
Celebrity Wedding Hairstyle Inspiration
Long, loose waves
Wearing your hair down adds a youthful and romantic touch to your look. If you don’t have the length for this look, then you can add temporary extensions that will seamlessly blend in with your natural hair colour. This classic style has been worn by celebrities such as Lauren Conrad. This style can be accentuated with a bejewelled hair comb or even a tiara.
A crown of flowers
Ashley Tisdale is well known in the country music world. For her California wedding, she wore her hair in a very natural look. For the ceremony, she wore a crown of fresh flowers to adorn her long, fluid waves. For the reception, she toned it down by twisting two locks of hair back with a few flowers to adorn them. This style is easy to change throughout the wedding and even the honeymoon.

Split the difference
Wearing half your hair up and the other half down adds easy volume to even fine hair. This is a sophisticated look that helps play up good facial structure or draw attention to your eyes and lips. Celebrities such as Rachel McAdams have been seen with this style on the red carpet.
Michelle Williams of Dawson’s Creek fame has mastered the pixie cut. There is no question that this look will maximise your facial structure. If you have amazing cheek bones, you can play them up with this look. It is a bit dramatic, though, since it is a short cut, so make sure it is what you want. Hair grows back, but it can take some time if you are trying to get a lot of length back.
There are so many beautiful ways to braid hair. A herringbone-style braid can look beautiful and help hair stay in place during the longest wedding day. Variations include long waves with a braid for a crown. If you don’t have enough hair to get the style you want, there are many hair pieces that can be woven in to achieve the look you want. Celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, do this all the time because they change styles so often.
Trying different styles
If you have the time, you may want to get your hair done in a few different styles before your big day so that you can decide which one you like best. If you don’t have the time, there are a lot of programs online that will allow you to upload a picture of yourself and virtually try out different hairstyles. This can save you a lot of time and make sure that you look your best on your big day.
