5 Tips for getting ready on your wedding day

Throughout the years I’ve developed several helpful hints which I always provide to the bride and groom on the wedding day. Here they are!

Clean your room

You may be a messy person by nature and that’s fine. However, keeping your room clean can make a huge difference, giving you beautiful photos. You don’t need to clean the room from top to bottom, but by putting a few things away it will be very helpful.

Choose a big open room with windows to get ready

A large room with nice, natural sunlight is a photographer’s dream. It doesn’t need to be your room. But try to choose a large room of the house, even the living room. It will help to light up the whole room, providing beautiful light, giving you lovely images.

Get ready next to the window

Window light helps to provide natural light and gives a nice contrast to the images. So for makeup, set up next to the window, and boys, when putting on your shirt, tie, and cuff links, try to do it near a nice open window.

Don’t leave it too late

Plan to be ready early, allowing enough time (1 hour) for some nice photos with your groomsmen/ bridesmaids. There’s nothing worse than having to rush on your big day. Take your time, enjoy these moments with your friends and loved ones.

Include your family

Having your family and bridesmaids/groomsmen with you during this time makes it even more special. The look on your parents’ faces when they see you ready for your big day is one of such emotion. They are seeing their daughter or son on one of the most significant days of their lives.
