Questions to Ask When Hiring a Wedding Photographer (2)

Today’s insightful guest post comes to us from TinyPhoto, a Singapore based event photography agency specialising in photo booth, event photography and videography. Enjoy!

After shortlisting two or three photographers schedule a meeting with them to see if you feel comfortable around them. They might be well experienced and highly skilled but if the comfort level is not there then there is no point in hiring that photographer.

Wedding Dresses Throughout The Years (2)

Today’s fun and fashionable guest post comes to us from Alain of Eden Manor Bridal, based in Wexford, Ireland. Enjoy!

Wedding dresses have traditionally been considered to be a symbol of commitment and love for a bride and groom on their wedding day. The colour of white has been traditionally used and symbolises the purity of the bride’s soul. However, this colour wasn’t always a popular option at weddings. During the 18th and 19th centuries, women chose to get married in a white wedding dress if they could afford it, rather than choosing the colour due to its connotation with purity. Before the Victorian times, a bride got married in many different colours including black which was really popular in Scandinavian countries. The white dress for weddings was made popular by Queen Victoria who married Prince Albert back in 1840. She wore a lace-trimmed white satin dress with a lace veil and an orange blossom wreath, as opposed to a crown. The main colour preferred at the time was red so it was definitely an eye-catching moment to see the Queen wearing white instead.

If that’s you, we have a suggestion you might not have considered: green and yellow. Chances are you haven’t seen a green and yellow wedding done, so it might be hard to imagine. You might be a little skeptical, picturing gaudy fluros or ugly Australiana kitsch, but hear us out. Green and yellow can be a knockout choice, you just have to do it right.
