General tips to get better photos of the preparations and make your life easier!

Get a room that is spacious. Chances are there will be quite a few people in the room so it helps if we all have space to be able to move and work, we don’t want to be struggling to move about and working in cramped conditions.

If you are getting ready in a hot country then get a room with air conditioning, you will stay calmer and arrive to the wedding looking perfectly fresh and beautiful.

Try and choose a room that is bright and airy, natural light is important for the photos and also for you to be able to see for hair, make up, and everything else.

Keep your room tidy. Please bear in mind that we are coming to take photographs and so whatever is lying around the room will be in the photos. If a messy room with clothes all over the place, empty drink cans, beer bottles, unmade bed etc is fine with you then its fine with us but I can guarantee you that a clean and tidy room is much more attractive and it will also keep you more relaxed.
