Today exactly in a month I am also going walk down the aisle. The 11-11-11 is my own wedding day
One thing that I have learned while organizing my own wedding, is I am now looking at it from a Bride’s perspective, and one thing that is an almost must is an Engagement shoot before your wedding. A few simple reasons being:
1. You can use it for your save the date, and its more personal to guests
2. You get to know your photographer and your better half sees that there is nothing to be scared of ( my own Fiance was not at all keen about the whole photoshoot, but half an hour in he turned into a Super Model and he was telling me what to do!!)
3. You have all those pictures to use for your wedding and even print for your house, its that little extra that you can spoil yourself with- Get your hair & Make-up done, get the perfect outfit( or a few…) and strike a pose!
Ask your photographer about an engagement shoot before the wedding- our photographer was
What an amazing wedding!!
Betty is one of my dearest Friends—-that booked me just when I started my own company( thanks for the support bets ) , so the stress was double on me to get everything perfect for their BIG day!! Everything went according to the timeframe, and eveyone was very relaxed ! Our whole concept for the wedding was TIME— it all started at the invites being hourglasses in boxes for each guests and ran thoughout the wedding, like the tables number was” times” — we used lazercutted clocks to show ex. the 2 o’clock table….. In hand with the concept of time- SHE LOVES little birdies… so that also featured in place Cards, on the wedding cake, and all the girls favours was little birdie cookies on the tables. Enjoy the Pictures x
Betty & Peter I wish LOTS OF HAPPY & JOYFULL TIMES together!! x
Peter and I got married on date 24 September 2011 and it truly was a flawless day. I am naturally organized, particular and detail orientated and truly believed I would be able to do everything related to the organization of the wedding. Never the less I opted to consult with a wedding planner to determine whether he/she could add value to the wedding. It was at this first consultation that the decision was made to utilize the services of I Do, particularly Izandi and her team. I did not have the contacts, nor did I have the five years experience in the wedding industry and further I could not control a thing on the day of the wedding.
Izandi was such a blessing as she meticulously followed my instructions. She assisted with every last detail whilst still respecting my decisions. Not only could we work well together but she truly lifted the wedding experience to a flawless event.
( thank you so much wil for amazing service and getting their wedding pictures on your website so soon- You were great to work with!!)
