The photo above shows a very fiesty wind lifting the bride's veil. The gallery at left shows images made in the backup location- this venue was welcome in the unexpected heat wave on the day.

Make a list of likely places early, and discuss them with us. As the day approaches, visit these venues to see that there have not been any major changes- construction scaffolding is not a good look in your wedding photos!

Ensure that you have permission from the venue to come inand have wedding photography there, and get this sorted directly with the person who will be in charge of the venue staff on the day. Almost any venue will welcome a group- especially if the venue provides meals or snacks. Everyone will buy something- a quick easy sale for a restaurant or bar is always welcome during what is traditionally a quiet time between lunch and dinner on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Of course with the extra location on hand, you will need more time for your wedding photography. Allow enough time for travel, parking and walking to the spots you have chosen, and you will have a great day and awesome wedding photography.
