Pre-Wedding Questionnaire

Please use this form below to tell me as much about your day as you can. I understand that it might not be entirely relevant as every wedding is different but hopefully you can use it to let me know where people will be, when, and what is happening! The more I know about the day in advance the better!

The idea is that I can have a comprehensive timeline so I can put together my own itinerary and ensure I am always in the right place at the right time and that your wedding photography coverage is totally awesome!

Please enter your name and date of Wedding.

The Marriage Ceremony

The Reception

The only time I really stop working during the day is when you sit down to eat. Will you be providing a meal for me (and my 2nd photographer/videographer if applicable) at this point, or do I need to sort something out?

Photos

Please list any specific group photo lists you want here. Obviously it is your day, and I will do my best to get all the photos you want, but keep in mind that even with the best ushering in the world it can still take 4-5 minutes to find and arrange a group of people for a photo - so try keep the numbers of shots small - no more than 5 or 6 is ideal.
It's often super helpful if you can nominate an usher/friend/bridesmaid etc (or 2!) to help arrange and corral the people for the above photos and to help keep things as smooth and quick as possible on the day. Ideally someone in the bride/grooms party who knows most of the key people and someone happy o shout and organise people! Often I'll reach out to them before the wedding to say hello and make sure they've got a copy of a list of the images we need. If you could list the ideal candidate here and also their email/phone numbers - that would be great!
Anything else I might need to know - photos you specifically want? Portrait locations you would like to use? Family politics I might need to be aware of!? Anything at all...
It is really helpful to find as much out about your suppliers as I can. Please add any suppliers instagram handles below (or just the business name if you don't know their socials) and just leave the ones out that don't apply to you.
Please include designers, shoe makers, head dresses and anything else relevant.
