Your dream day – working together to make your special day exactly that!
The perfect wedding day is an expensive thing to plan and you’ll want to make sure you’ve chosen the right person to capture all the amazing moments that will happen – at Helen Rushton photography I go that little bit further and add on a few little extras to make the whole journey memorable and enjoyable
So what’s INCLUDED?
Pre Wedding Shoot
Included in every collection I offer is a Pre Wedding Shoot. This can be at a location of your choosing or one of the many stunning locations I know across the South and after meeting for a coffee we will head out to take some photos of you both. You’ll be given a little direction and lots of encouragement during the shoot so you can rest assured you’ll love the images we make. This will help you get used to me and the way I shoot and give you confidence that your wedding day photographs will be exactly what you wish for.
We’ll arrange a time for you to review the Pre Wedding Shoot images so I can further develop my understanding of exactly what you do and don’t like and you can use the opportunity to order a Signature board or guest book for your wedding reception guests. Also included in every collection I offer is a set of gallery cards for your guests so we’ll choose your favourite images for those too.
Wedding Day Coverage
On the big day I’ll be there to capture the bridal preparations, the special moment you step into your gorgeous dress, the details of your jewellry and flowers, your bridesmaids and all the wonderful moments that make this your special day. Being a female photographer you wont feel embarrassed as I work discreetly ensuring every detail is recorded for you. When you’re all dressed up and ready to go I’ll take some lovely portrait shots of you and your bridesmainds before you leave for the ceremony.
Groom and Groomsmen
I will then head off to where the ceremony is taking place and meet with the groom and groomsmen and take some formal and informal photographs of them whilst we wait for the big arrival of the bride. This is a chance for the boys to be boys! No flowers, no fru, just great images of the chaps looking cool before the main event starts.
As the ceremony unfolds I’ll be there in the right place to capture the most special of moments – the first time the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, your both saying your vows to each other, exchanging rings and of course your first kiss as husband and wife.
Despite the popularity of reportage and candid wedding photographs most couples do want a few groups shots. As soon as everyone is at your reception venue and has had a chance to freshen up we will bring your groups together for some fun and informal “formal” photographs and any specific requests you have in mind. We will have discuss your specific requirements so they are easy to organise and succinct so your guests can get back to enjoying themselves
Bride and Groom Photos
It’s usually by this time that the bride and groom want a little time to themselves. Somewhere private in the grounds or within your wedding reception venue where we can capture those essential photographic memories of your special day. Depending on what you are looking for and the time you have set aside, we may be able head off somewhere special and be more creative with the location. As well as some posed shots where you will be given help and advice, I’ll give you some space and capture those intimate moments that are natural and romantic. Usually we’ll only spend a few minutes during the day doing your portraits and save the best for later in the evening, after your wedding breakfast, when you are more relaxed and the light is at its’ best!
The best way to capture the feel and essence of your wedding day are the images of your wedding reception – the candid images of your guests as they are laughing and enjoying themselves. I make sure I mingle with your guests and capture great reportage style images for your album. I will also make sure all the details you have spent so much time planning are recorded like the table decorations, place settings, flowers.
When it comes to the speeches and cutting the cake I’ll be there to make sure I have the photographs you need to remind you of all the amazing moments you enjoyed on your wedding day.
The finale of your day with me is your first dance and makes a beautiful end to your wedding album story.
After the big day
Whilst you are on honeymoon I will professionally edit all the images taken and if requested pop a small selection up on my blog for you to see whilst you’re away!
When you return we’ll get together and I’ll show you your gorgeous, professionally edited images over a glass of bubbly and help you choose the very best of the best images for your amazing wedding album.
As one of very few Professional photographers who takes the time to choose your album images with you, I think this service is invaluable to creating a very special wedding album your can treasure forever and share with your family for generations to come.
Your photographer is the only person who sees every part of your special day, by working with me you are guaranteed to get the results you have asked for in manner you love. Don’t just take my word for it – have READ what previous brides and grooms have to say…
