I am excited to announce that the lovely Gemma of Betti Confetti Photography is offering four of our couples the opportunity to save nearly £500 on wedding photography. When she proposed this exclusive offer to me I was delighted that I’d be able to share it as I know that opportunities like this are rare, but pretty special if you can take advantage of them.
Save nearly £500
In celebration of 2016 being a Leap Year, Gemma of Betti Confetti Photography is offering 29% off her complete wedding photography package, which amounts to a saving of £464. But the offer is only available to the first four couples who book mentioning this Leap Year offer (and it expires on 4th April 2016) – so if you love Gemma’s photography don’t hang around, drop her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and start chatting.
The shy bride’s guide to planning an engagement shoot – a guest post from Emma at Freckle Photography
Today the lovely Emma from TNWC business Freckle Photography shares her wisdom on engagement shoots. Personally I think they’re the perfect opportunity to embrace the things you love to do together and take a moment out from the craziness of wedding planning.
I’m sure these beautiful images featuring beekeepers, vintage railway lovers and camping couples will inspire you to plan something beautiful, fun and memorable to capture the essence of you as a couple.
Over to Emma…
Whilst planning my own wedding last year, I suddenly realised that the thought of being photographed all day terrified me! Not just because I spent my life behind the lens, but because I’m a normal girl with all the usual insecurities about my wobbly bits and the way my face scrunches up a bit too much when I’m really happy.
As for the boys, the idea of being obviously affectionate in ‘public’ and then being photographed can be equally as alarming.
What is an engagement shoot and why have one?
I’m sure this is a fairly normal reaction when planning a wedding, which is why I offer a photo shoot prior to the wedding. Sometimes called an ‘engagement shoot’ or a ‘pre-wedding shoot’, the aim is for you and your photographer to get to know one another, dispel any myths about having your photo taken and get some awesome and fun images in the process.
Despite it being a bit daunting at first, I can tell you within minutes you will be enjoying yourselves. It’s a great excuse to have a bit of time out together, kiss more than you have all week and generally lark about!
This morning I thought it would be really nice to share the beautiful new wedding packaging from one of our TNWC recommended photographers, Rebecca Douglas. First though I have a couple of announcements:
Wedding fair ticket giveaway – on Tuesday morning I have 20 tickets up for grabs for the White Memoirs Vintage Wedding Fair and full details about this year’s fair. PLUS I also have 10 ‘Bridal Boot’ tables to giveaway, so do check back tomorrow for full details.
TNWC Real Brides – you might remember before Christmas I was on the hunt for brides-to-be who wanted to blog about their wedding, well this week on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday I’ll be introducing you to the first two lovely ladies. I am so excited about this new feature!
New features on the website – over the coming month I will be unveiling a few small changes to the website and blog, including some that will hopefully make it easier to find what you are looking for. Keep an eye out for these fab improvements!
But back to today. It’s always nice to hear what my TNWC wedding businesses are up to, and when I spied the new eco-chic handmade packaging from Rebecca Douglas Photography I thought you’d all want to have a look too. Not only is it a real treat for those booking Rebecca as their wedding photography, but it’s also full of inspiration for handmade wedding details.
Rebecca’s new packaging was inspired by her eco-friendly and sustainably sourced Luxe Album: “I love capturing love and once the big day is over my labour of love does not stop there. I get excited about getting home and editing the images. I get even more excited when I post out the images to the wonderful newlyweds and I want the unpacking of the DVDs to feel exciting too. When I introduced my beautiful Luxe Album, I loved unpacking it and pealing back the layers to get to the album. I loved that it was completely eco-friendly and sustainably sourced and these feel good moments have inspired my new packaging.”
Yesterday I featured Charlotte and George’s informal English country wedding which was captured by TNWC wedding photographers Bohemian Weddings. As mentioned in yesterday’s post, Michael and Andrea from Bohemian Weddings have a fantastic offer for TNWC readers.
Until the 28th February 2013 Bohemian Weddings are offering a free engagement shoot worth £250 for anyone booking their wedding with them before that date.
