Your wedding photographs are so important like the wedding itself

Your wedding photographs are so important like the wedding itself

Wedding photographs Your photographs are a very important reminder of your wedding day, not just for you, but for your parents, friends, attendants, etc. It is vital to make sure that you have a good photographer that you can trust. This doesn’t necessarily mean having a professional wedding photographer; if you have a friend or relative who is a very good photographer and you want to rely on him or her, then that should be fine. Don’t, however, rely just on friends’ snapshots; these will be nowhere near the high quality that you will want for your special photographs. Another advantage of professional photographers is that their service is probably covered by insurance; certainly you will be eligible for compensation should something go horribly wrong with the film or with the final negatives.

How and where to find pretty flowers for your wedding day – wedding organizer

Wedding flowers Flowers have played a part in countless weddings throughout the centuries, and a wedding wouldn’t really feel complete without them.

Wedding cake Wedding cakes are a very ancient tradition in many cultures. The Romans ate a ‘cake’ baked from wheat flour, salt and water as the marriage contract was performed, and tribes such as the Iroquois Indians and the Fiji Islanders have long traditions of the bride offering a cake to her new husband. In this country the Roman type of cake gave way to a spiced bread or biscuit, and by Tudor times sugar, eggs and fruit were added to make a mixture more similar to the rich fruit cake we know today.

The wedding music as integral part of a wedding service – wedding event planner

Wedding music Music is an integral part of a wedding service. It adds to the dignity and special air of the occasion, and also contributes one of the notes of rejoicing and celebration. Also, it provides a chance for the couple to choose one or more pieces of music that are special to them for one reason or another. Most church weddings are accompanied by organ music as that is the most easily available instrument in that setting. Also the organ will be powerful enough to fill the whole church with music, whereas a soloist on another instrument such as an oboe or violin may not be loud enough to cover the bustle of everyone getting to their feet and saying how lovely the bride looks!
