There 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.

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.
