The Madhouse


It’s always nice to be told that my arrival has caused butterflies to flutter around a brides tummy and as much as I like to convince myself it was all due to my chiselled looks… cough… the truth of the matter is that the arrival of your trusty wedding photographer signals its all systems go and the official start to the best day of your life.

Throughout the hairspray haze and the nose clearing scent of perfume, there is a real sense of expectation, that makes for fantastic photographs.

Champagne glasses with lipstick marks adorn the kitchen worktop, Mum would have been ready within an hour of getting out of bed and Dad will no doubt be sitting in the corner, keeping out the way awaiting his cue, which usually comes bellowed in the form of  “DAAAAAD GET READY NOOOW”.

A few things to remember & to keep in mind: buttonholes are delivered with the bouquets so don’t forget to arrange for a member of the wedding party to pick them up in advance, also the bouquets are usually kept in water so best to take them out a bit before the pics to prevent “drip marks” and Buttonholes are worn on the left-hand side – a men’s buttonhole should be worn on the outside of the buttonhole of the left lapel: Not in the buttonhole.
