On your wedding day (or any other special occasion for that matter) you really want the person entrusted with capturing the day to be talented, fun to be around (because you are with them for a good few hours at least), easy to communicate with, able to work around you rather than getting in the way or spending too long setting up “candid” shots, able to control the masses and coordinate the ever elusive amazing group photo, know when “golden hour” is at the drop of a hat, calm, rational, did I say talented?  The list goes on.

Never fear!  I have worked with so many photographers that I am able to give you a nice and comprehensive list of those I think are tops.  They check all the boxes in the above list and more.  They may not be the cheapest, but a photographer can make or break your day – and your memories of it – so they need to be the best.   So, without further ado my top picks for your happy snappers are, in no particular order…

Video is a really overlooked and undervalued addition to your wedding day.  The adrenalin and having to event organise can leave behind gaps in your memory that pictures can’t always fill.  Seeing Nana crack up at the speeches or watching your little niece and nephews walk down the aisle again 10 years down the track is honestly priceless – and the videographers below are masters of their craft.

Ok folks, bear with me.  I am OBSESSED with florists, if you’ve been on my instagram you would know that.  Floristry just seems to go from strength to strength and it is SO EXCITING!!!  So I am going to give you quite a few options to look at here.  I genuinely, legitimately stand behind any and all of them. Go nuts!  When else do you get to deck the halls with pretty blooms?  Go. Nuts.

Music.  It’s important.  It sets the scene and starts the party – from the moment the ceremony starts until the last person is left on your dance floor.  Like all your wedding vendors, your musical entertainment needs to really get you, you know?  Some of the people below might be able to do just that:
