TIP 26 - LUCKY SIXPENCE

TIP 26 - LUCKY SIXPENCE

Why not keep an ancient tradition alive and increase your good luck at the same time.

By putting a sixpence in your left shoe you are carrying on a tradition begun in the 17th Century. Originally it was a token of the dowry payment, but soon became a simple good luck charm.

Don’t forget to tell me though as I always want a snap of it going in too!

TIP 25 – PHOTO RULES!

Where are you getting married? Who is doing the ceremony?
What denomination is the church?

When you are doing your wedding planning or visiting potential venues, please always ask if there are any restrictions on photography during the ceremony.

Occasionally photographers are asked to remain in one location, or not to use flash during the ceremony and in extreme circumstances not to take photos at all during the ceremony.

Don’t panic though, it’s even more common that we have no restrictions and can snap away happily. I always blend in and take photos as unobtrusively as possible and no-one even remembers me being there during the ceremony, which is the highest compliment.

TIP 24 – THE COUPLE SHOOT!

TIP 24 – THE COUPLE SHOOT!

How long should you be away with the photographer on your wedding day?

For me, it’s an easy one to answer – 30 minutes. I don’t need more than that to get plenty great photos of you together. Plus that gets you back to your guests quickly and allows me to shoot more candid, natural shots.

How come I manage to achieve in that time what takes other photographers 2 hours (!)?

It’s all down to my understanding of your requirements, and our venue visit where we scout out the best spots to take photos on the day (good weather and bad weather options, of course). That means on the day there is no guessing, no dithering – we just head off and take great photos.

TIP 23 – POUR OOT!

TIP 23 – POUR OOT!

When I was a lad, I remember clearly waiting outside a church wedding in Melrose and opening a brolly to catch loads of coins that the groom threw for the kids. Pretty enterprising, I thought! It was called a scatter and was very common, but in other places it is known as a scramble, or even a ‘pour oot’.

Anyhow it’s a great tradition, and one that lends itself to great photos. So grooms or best men get those sporrans filled with coins for the kids!

TIP 22 – WEDDING ALBUMS ARE A MUST!

TIP 22 – WEDDING ALBUMS ARE A MUST!

Why?

Nothing beats seeing your gorgeous wedding photos in print – trust me. Every time I see a completed album, it reinforces how I feel about printed photos, the connection is stronger than merely clicking through a gallery on screen. I know that’s the done thing nowadays, but we are losing the connection we have with photos by not seeing them printed out. We look at photos more often and for longer when they are printed, especially a wedding album which can be brought out time and again.

At PSD Photography Weddings we lovingly and carefully put together the story of your day in a bespoke album; it’s a big, tough job, but our in-house expertise gets the best quality results.

As you would expect, the albums are built to last – to become family heirlooms – they are the highest quality possible and all hand-made in the UK. I always get albums delivered to me first, and give them a detailed inspection (none has ever failed, which is testament to my supplier) before sending them on their way to become cherished mementos of a wonderful day.
