And that’s me. Being a b*tch. But in a nice way.
Directly after the ceremony I don’t let your guests get wander around like a bunch of lost sheep.
No when you tell me you want an awesome group shot, or all the confetti/rose petals feels I make it my mission to get THAT photo. And to make it take less than 5 minutes.
We’ve all been to weddings where the after photos take ages because Uncle Mick went to the loo, no one can find Nanna and there are about 1,000,000 cousins who can’t get their sh*t together. Having a group shot has become a DON’T DO IT thing for that reason. But if you want a group shot – you should have it! And it should only take a few minutes to organise
You have a Kez. A celebrant who is prepared to help, loud and bossy enough to get it done.
April Werz (Photographer Extraordinaire) called me Mrs Whiplash. Funnily enough that’s my other job (*WINK*) because I don’t put up with any nonsense in that crucial time post ceremony – pre reception.
I’ll let Hannah and Dave, one of my couples tell their story
Kez was able to make our whole ceremony and transition into photos super easy!
She sternly but with a big smile warned my uncle that if he didn’t put away his camera for our unplugged ceremony that she simply wouldn’t start marrying us!
We’d made it clear to her that we didn’t want photos of our guests with a camera or phone in front of their faces and she made sure this was upheld throughout the ceremony!
We’d also discussed getting a big group shot straight after the ceremony and she very quickly ushered everyone into line for us so we could get the photo done for everyone to then go and enjoy canapés and drinks.
I’ve been to many other weddings where the group photo simply doesn’t happen or takes up 30 minutes trying to get everyone organised. Kez made it super easy and quick for us!”
In short, its not just in the ceremony where you’re choice of celebrant makes a big difference.
Let’s chat shall we and make your marriage experience amazing!
