Your wedding is a day like no other in your life. It’s a day you want to remember fondly, regardless of how stressful it’s been to organise. More importantly, it’s a day you want to revisit regularly by looking at the pictures of the ceremony and the reception. The last thing you want is to put your wedding photo album away without daring to open it because the images are not quite what you expected. Ultimately, you’ve invested a lot of time and money in planning the venue, the dress, the menu, and the entertainment for the day. It would be a pity not to have a decent photo of your wedding party.
Not looking after your skin
If there’s one day where you need to shine, it should be your wedding day. Thankfully, most brides have on average 6 to 18 months to prepare for their big day, so that should leave you with plenty of time to improve your fitness and beauty routine. Your skin, more importantly, will be going through a lot of pressure. Ultimately, planning your wedding is a stressful journey that can affect your skin balance and health. There’s no way around it: You want to keep it hydrated and smooth! For a fresh look, you should ensure the fragile skin under your eyes is moisturised, lack of moisture will create lines and enhance dark rings. Remember that while you can cheat with makeup, you can achieve better results with a clean and clear complexion!
Asking a friend to take the pictures
Everybody has a friend who always takes the most flattering selfies. But the truth is that your wedding picture shouldn’t be entrusted to a friend. You want a professional wedding photographer to capture the memories of your special day. Ultimately, your friend may not have the skills or the equipment required for a quality result. And it’s fair to say that the process of taking selfies is not comparable to wedding photography!
Check your location thoroughly
Nobody likes to be photobombed by a dog running in the background or a pair of school students playing on the grass. But if you want to avoid accidental intrusions, you need to pick a location that will be private at the time of the photoshoot. Film locations such as Alnwick Castle, or a Pottermaniac, it’s the set of Hogwarts, are available at a private hire basis, which guarantees perfect photos. Additionally, if you’ve decided to organise a photoshoot with a famous landscape in the background, it’s a good idea to check the site a few days before the shooting to make sure it’s safe and suitable.
Learn to pose
Selfie addicts, be warned! When you get married, you want not only a flattering picture with your spouse, but you also want to look your best. Automatisms such as the sign of victory or sticking your tongue out might be fine for a casual night out with friends, but you may want to train yourself to more suitable posing for your big day. Practice holding yourself straight in front of a mirror to find your best angles.
If you’re dreaming of a framed photo of your wedding day to keep by the fireplace, you need to make sure you’re not taking any chances on your photoshoot. From looking after yourself to finding a reliable photographer, you have to plan every single detail of your photo!
