Martin & Leanne have chosen lots of posed family pictures from a selection of the literally hundreds of reportages shots taken  on their wedding day.  We don’t mind which pictures the couples choose so long as we have covered everything to give them those choices – sometimes even choices they didn’t ever imagine in advance – but in this case Martin & Leanne had it all planned out!

wedding reception venue: review of the KP Club Glasshouse in Pocklington

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

This is a relatively new wedding venue.  It has a contemporary feel to the styling with plenty of interesting reflective surfaces to make wedding photography indoors that little bit more exciting.  The main reception is held upstairs which rather discourages anyone from wandering around outside, which is a pity.  There is a balcony with plenty of seating so smokers tend to congregate there in a sociable manner.

The sofa on the balcony with the neutral blue-ish background makes for a comfortable alternative to standing up like a bus queue  for family wedding portraits!

Downstairs  by the infinity pool, these surreal plastic armchairs that look as if they should be soft, add another dimension to outdoor wedding photography.

2 – Book the photographer - again 12-24 months in advance.  If you want to choose from a variety of wedding photographers use a wedding directory such as http://www.ourweddingmemories.co.uk ,   http://www.uk-wedding-photographers.com/ or http://www.weddingservices4u.co.uk4 – Book the wedding car if needing to travel between venues (eg home-church-reception)5 – Book DJ/ musicians/ any entertainers you might like for the dead time between end of meal and start of evening do.6 – Plan your guest list7 – Get the invitations done – they will need to go out at least 2 -6 months  before the chosen date, as people tend to book their holidays in January/Feb, that’s a good time to start with invitations too, but check with your stationery specialist first, as they tend to be very busy that time of the year too.8 – Fashions  – and more to the point – figures CHANGE – the actual purchase shouldn’t be too soon – about 3 months before the wedding is fine –  or you might be left with a dress you can’t use! See our advice page on choosing wedding dresses here – well what to avoid really! http://weddingphotos-video.co.uk/blog/?p=471 http://www.rufflez.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ Men’s suits – (hire?) and bridesmaid’s/pageboy’s outfits.http://www.1860.com/9 – Book the florist : www.mangolily.com/weddings/1.htm10 -Book the hairdresser - particularly if you want their personal services at you place of getting ready (home-hotel etc)11 – If you haven’t already got the wedding rings – don’t forget those as you may need alterations or even a special design making uniquely for you two with your names engraved inside…12 – Buy or make wedding favours and room decorations/seat covers/balloons13 – Buy  a guest book for guests to sign/put comments in – or a big photo of yourselves which they sign and you frame afterwards14 – Don’t bother with disposable cameras, as although they might seem a good idea – its mainly the children who use them and even the adults take a load of rubbish  (might be a bit biased here but brides also tell me that too!)15 – Keep all people’s/suppliers  contact numbers in your phone and on a check list so if a supplier fails to turn up when expected on or around your wedding day you can contact them immediately before it is too late – check with them ALL the week before too, so they get a reminder and you have peace of mind. http://www.weddingbrowser.co.uk
