Several of my brides mention that they are gathering ideas and inspiration off the internet and saving them in a file where they can look back on them. This especially helps if you are a DIY bride and plan to do most of the table decorations etc yourself.
Pinterest is a brilliant resource to use if you are one of these brides/grooms. It is so simple and easy to use (well, I am using it so it must be) and a great way to categorise what you are saving.
The first thing you need to do is request an invite. If you do this straight away then that part is out of the way (it can take several days to be accepted) and you can get on with looking at all the inspiration on there that other people have saved.
Once you are accepted, you can download your pin. This is a little button that goes into your bookmarks tool bar. Here is the clever part!! You can go onto websites and wedding blogs as normal and when you see a picture of something that inspires you or something you just love then you click your ‘pin it’ button in your toolbar and then click the picture you want to save.
It will ask you what board you want this pin to be saved in, so if it is a gorgeous wedding dress, then name the board ‘Wedding dresses’ (you only ever need to do this once) to make it easier to find when you are specifically looking for your wedding dress. When you come across anymore wedding dresses you like then you can pin them and put them straight into the same board
It really is that simple and you can pin until your heart is content. So much easier than the file > save > name picture > where would you like to save it option. Just click PIN IT!!
I hope this has been of some use and if you would like to see things that I love then visit my boards here
People that know me well might hear me mention my Welsh roots as I’m very proud of them, so when Kate said Ian’s side were from ‘them parts’ I knew this was going to be a good day.
As predicted, everyone, including Kate’s family were very welcoming and we felt like friends as soon as we walked into Kate’s room. Then I met Uncle Bryn and the day couldn’t have got any better!
Here is a quick peek into the day.
Oliver and Kathryn got married a few days before and I was attending the blessing a few days later.
I gave Oliver a ring to finalise a few things and discovered he had broken his foot! We had a few laughs about how we were going to ‘disguise’ his cast on the day by always making Kathryn stand on that side so he could slip his foot under her dress.
I’ve been quite lucky with every wedding I have shot at, there has never been heavy rain. There has been rain, but never when it is time to take group/couple shots.
This wedding was a prime example. Charlene and Simon looked stunning on their wedding day and I just happened to be the second shooter helping out Emma. She was keen to get them in the corn field we passed on the way to the venue but the bride and groom were having a good time with their guests so decided to go later.
This gorgeous wedding is being blogged soon. It was such a lovely relaxed day and I will tell you all about it on the full post .
As soon as I knocked on the hotel door and saw Gabby I felt at home. We chatted like old friends and I had to remember why I was there. To shoot her gorgeous wedding.
Before I knew it, I was stood at the front of the aisle with the nervous groom, waiting for his beautiful bride to enter and then there she was and her smile filled the room.
I have a few Brides getting married at Moxhull Hall, so when Steve Gerrard asked if I would second shoot for him back in May, I jumped at the chance.
Lucy and Steve were such a lovely couple and their families made you feel very welcome. We were very lucky because the weather couldn’t have been nicer, so because of this, they were able to have an outdoor ceremony.
Today, one of my brides featured on the fantastic wedding blog Rock my wedding.
Kelly is putting together so many things herself and has so many wonderful ideas that I thought it was only fair I share this with you. You can follow her posts on RMW where she will be keeping you up to date with her progress. Hopefully you can
steal borrow some of her ideas!
This was the gorgeous Lady I had the pleasure to meet yesterday. More to come soon.
