Wedding planning can feel like spinning plates, trying to work out all the curious things you need to do. You really don’t need another list of action points, but you’d probably still like to know how the photography bit works. And you’ll be reassured that most of these things below are what I’ll be working on while you focus on the other stuff …

You just fill in the gaps on the form. My couples tel me my form is a really helpful extra checklist. The more info you can give the better, and you can keep sending me updates as things develop

  • You send me a copy of your agreed timeline spreadsheet that you agree with your venue, or if your all diy, then you might have done one of these yourself, send it to me too, thank you

“Well what can we say, Sharon captured our special day better than we could have dreamed of. She chatted with our friends and family like we had known her for years making everyone feel at ease (not everyone loves a photo) but she caught everyone’s true self and enjoyment.
We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer, friend, helper on the day, lead up and honestly the most amazing pictures that we will cherish for ever.
Thank you so much “
