I’ve been meaning to do this post for ages: we have decided on a wedding photographer – Neil Thomas Douglas. We really liked that a lot of his photos were of people in non-traditional dresses and in unusual locations. The ones of the couple with the grey dress were taken near where the registry office we’re getting married in, so it’s nice to see how it would work in real life.
We also liked that there’s lots of different styles, because I’m thinking that since we’re doing our celebrations over two different days, with two different outfits it would be an excellent opportunity to go for different styles of photography – maybe like a faded retro style for the Friday, because I’ll be dressed in beige and gold, and a brighter more saturated style for the reception – I haven’t got a dress for that yet, but I’m thinking a white Vivien of Holloway dress with lots of red.
I need to do much more research into wedding photography though, so maybe if people have their own wedding photos online, you could share them in the comments? Also, if you know of any wedding blogs for the low-key DIY market, I’d love to hear! I really like 100 layer cake, and handmade weddings on etsy but all the featured weddings are still far too elaborate for us. We’re planning on doing everything ourselves (and because our families are far away, we won’t have an army of helpers either), there’s limits to what we can do with the reception venue (I’d love bunting, but I don’t think it’s possible to hang it without destroying the walls), and we won’t have favours or anything like that either.
