During my time as a wedding photographer working in and around Liverpool and Manchester, both City Centre Wedding Photography or on the outskirts of town, as well as all travelling to photograph weddings all around Lancashire, up to the Lake District and even as far as Gretna Green, I've picked up a good few very useful hints and tips over the years that for you both, as a couple planning your wedding day, you might not have even thought about or even really considered but it really can and definitely will help you on the day. After all, the chances are you have probably spend thousands of pounds, several months or even years planning down to every little detail so here are a few little bits of information, tips and advice that, with a bit of planning and some forethought, can really help your photographer get the best photographs for you on the big day. I mean why wouldn't you want the best possible shots and something to keep if that's a gorgeous canvas print taking pride of place on a wall in your home or a stunning hand-made, Italian Storybook Wedding album to show your family and friends, maybe even show your children and grandchildren in the future!
