Getting Married?

Photographer Trevor YerburyThere is so much to think about - your wedding dress, the wedding cake, the wedding venue,  the wedding cars, what the groom is going to wear..... yes the list is endless!

But perhaps most important of all, who is going to capture that 'special day?

Choosing a wedding photographer will involve a certain amount of leg work, however professional photographers will welcome the opportunity to talk about the 'big day' and show you examples of their work.

Wedding photographers cam also be a 'gold mine' of useful information, after all they attend many hundreds of wedding and get to know the Wedding Coordinators, Wedding Limousine Hire Companies,  Wedding Venues, Churches and a great deal more.

Choosing a Wedding Photographer

Not so very long ago our grandparents called in to a professional photographer's studio immediately after their wedding ceremony to have a set of very formal photographs taken.  Since those halcyon days,  fashions in wedding photography has changed and photographers are always looking for new angles and ideas to keep their photography fresh and interesting.

Modern developments in technology has seen the introduction of digital imaging giving the professional photographer the opportunity to provide today's bride with a vast variety of styles and choice.

Getting Married in England

Post by Phil Jones

The tradition of carrying one or more items that are "old", "new", "borrowed" and "blue" also comes from English. There is an old English rhyme describing the practice which also mentions a sixpence in the brides shoe. Something old, signifying continuity, could be a piece of lace, jewelry, or a grandmother's handkerchief. Something new, signifying optimism in the future, could be an article of clothing or the wedding rings. Something borrowed, signifying future happiness, could be handkerchief from a happily married relative or friend. Something blue, signifying modesty, fidelity and love, comes from early Jewish history. In early Biblical times, blue not white symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom usually wore a band of blue material around the bottom of their wedding attire, hence the tradition of "something blue". Originally the sixpence was presented to the bride by her future husband as a token of his love. Today, very often, it is the bride's father who places a coin in the brides shoe prior to leaving home for the church.
