The wedding day usually begins for us with Chanelle covering the bridal preparations at the wedding venue, the hotel or at the bride’s house. We do request that the bridal party be ready and have their hair and make up complete at least 45 mins prior to departure and the bride should be in her wedding dress 30 mins prior to departure. The reason for this is to allow around half an hour for creative bridal portraits, images with the bride and her parents and shot of the bride with her bridesmaids. Please remember to factor in this time during the wedding planning. Also remember to inform the wedding coordinator or wedding planner of any time required for the wedding photography throughout your special day. Craig will cover the groom preparation and also requires the groom and groomsmen to be ready at least 30 mins prior to departure. He will use this time to get creative portraits of the groom with his parents and members of the bridal party.
