To ensure you get the best from the day into which you have invested so much, read our wedding photography planning tips article, to help you allocate enough time at the right times, for all the things that need to happen.

The Bride and Groom rehearsed a few dance moves during this photo shoot- and our camera caught the moment. This kind of natural spontaneity flows when the timing of the wedding day has been generously allocated to each part of the day. As the inevitable delays and interruptions crop up, you will be glad you had the buffer built in to your schedule. If you are stressed the photos won't have you looking your very best- and you don't want to arrive for your wedding reception exhausted.

If you are planning a location such as this one, at Elwood Beach, Melbourne, then it is vitally important to have a second, photogenic backup. Scout alternate wedding photography locations well in advance, and once more just prior to the day, so that there are absolutely no surprises on the day. Seek out and apply for any permit well in advance, and ensure that long limousines or lowered wedding hot rods can access the parking areas, if you have booked these cars.
