Professional photographers will tell you that the most important thing for you to do on your wedding day is - just relax and be happy. 'enjoy the day' and they will make every attempt to ensure that you do.
The trouble is, you might say, there are so many things to see to on the day and how can I relax and remember everything that happens. The answer is simple your photographer will capture those memories and even help to keep things running smoothly.
Remember, you are paying a professional - a dressmaker, a florist, a car firm, hotel staff and a photographer - to see to everything concerning your wedding arrangements and a vicar, minister or a registrar to conduct the ceremony. Professional photographers have the experienced and know all about the 'pitfalls' - so you are in good hands. So, so let them do the worrying. After all that is what you are paying us for
There are of course the preparations to make sure everything goes smoothly and these are what you are going to enjoy and no doubt are enjoying now.
It has often been said something about the joy in a journey being in the travelling rather than the arrival?
Photographers also feel it important that as many people as possible who are attending your wedding should understand what the photographer is trying to do, as they have learned that most people who attend weddings find the photographer an inconvenience and a nuisance. After all, they want to get to the reception and just get on with the merry making!
But you are paying them to do a job and they want to do it to the best of their ability, so relax and prepare to enjoy the day.
Remember the trouble with photographs is that they have to be taken, so plan into your day enough time for your photographer to create this 'special photographic memories'.

Wedding Trivia: VEIL
Brightly colored veils were worn in ancient times in many parts of the world and were considered a protection against evil spirits Greek and Roman brides for yellow or red veils (representing fire) to ward off evil spirits and demons. At one time, Roman brides were completely covered with a red veil for protection. In early European history, with the advent of arranged marriages veils served another purpose - to prevent the groom from seeing the brides' face till after the ceremony was over. Brides began to wear opaque yellow veils. Not only could the groom not see in, the bride could not see out! Therefore, the father of the bride had to escort her down the aisle and literally give the bride to the groom. Nellie Custis, the daughter of Martha Washington, is credited with wearing the first lace veil.
