The wedding helper guide

Woohoo, THANK YOU so much for booking me. I am absolutely over the moon & cannot wait to share your big day with you. It can be super daunting trying to plan something you have never done before. Whether you are a seasoned wedding attendee or a fresh into the world of weddings. I have written the below to help you with putting together your big day!

The first thing I recommend is to join this amazing group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/209728209169227/

Here you will find reviews, photos, recommendations, inspiration and so much more.

Venue

You most likely have this booked already. The venue will dictate the big day you have decided. The main things when picking a venue

  1. Amount of attendees allowed
  2. Catering - i.e DIY or proffesional
  3. Alcohol Licence
  4. Flash photography if you are in a church


Photographer

That's me YIPPEE!

Videographer

Whether i'm also your videographer or you have hired someone else. Choosing a videographer who matches your style is super important. There is 3 versions of a videographer. The hand held non intrusive videographer who will capture all the amazing moments but will stand back and document your day. Then there is the tripod videographer. The one who sets up 3+ cameras on tripods and leaves them standing around. I.e up the aisle, in front of guests etc. This type of videographer is content based. Captures everything from all angles with no movement. Then there is the two combined with drones. So you will have up to 3 cameras placed then a drone going & one who will be right up close with a wide angle capturing all the small details like ring exchanges.

Celebrant

Choosing a celebrant is one of the biggest points of the day. They will dictate how your whole ceremony will run. Whether your super chill and love good banter, or your very classy and professional. You can literally find a celebrant who has the exact personality as you. Some of my favourites are listed in my vendor link - www.melsmoments.co.nz/vendors

Make Up Artist

Make up artists in high demand are booking out 2 years in advance! The biggest tip I can give you is to book your makeup trial for the same day as your engagement shoot. Just make sure when choosing, you have a big stalk through their profile page. Whether you like fake eyelashes, bronze cheeks, pink cheeks. Whether you have hooded eyes like me or big eyes. Try find someone in their photo's who looks similar to you and has a similar look to what you want
