Our December wedding is going to be held in the late afternoon and it'll be getting dark by the time our ceremony ends. How will this affect our photography?
Victoria says: Winter can be a beautiful time of year to get married, I too was a winter bride and loved it! From a photographer's perspective it can pose challenges due to the low light and early sunset. As such it's imperative that you choose a photographer who's not only confident but competent at shooting in these conditions and has the additional lighting and equipment to deal with it. Also ask to see previous examples of winter weddings they have photographed to make sure they're experienced.
Choose a venue that offers beautiful indoor areas for pictures and your hired professional can get creative with lighting. Portraits by candlelight and the use of additional lighting outside in the dark can give your bride and groom images the wow factor! If you'd love some daylight portraits, consider having a first look moment with your beau. This is becoming very popular and gives you an opportunity to spend time together looking your best ahead of the vows. Following the ceremony, also consider having a sparkler exit instead of confetti, which can look amazing.
Finally, make sure you pack something warm to wear in between portraits as it can get cold after dark and protect your beautiful bridal shoes by bringing along some wellies.
