The Five Golden Rules 4

The Five Golden Rules 4

Your first priority in this event is the preservation of your relationship.

There’s no point walking down the aisle in the best-organized wedding of the year if you can’t stand the sight of the person at the other end of it.

If your partner says to you, “We can’t do that, my parents won’t like it” their priority in this insurance is the relationship with their parents, and not necessary to yours.

Reaching decisions that may have far-reaching circumstances is never simple.
If you are going to put your foot down, make sure it’s important enough to do so. The key is to pick your battles. It’s more about putting everything in perspective and prioritizing what is really most important.

The organization of your wedding is a test of how you will function as a team. The decision-making process is unique to the dynamics of each couple. Some people like to organize every aspect together, other like to delegate parts, while others prefer to split the tasks.

We have noticed that a lot of our clients likes to come to see me together on their first appointment.  So they both can see more of my work and feel the connections with myself as their wedding photographer.

Agree at the early stage how you will work , so you don’t get yourself in a position where
the person is accusing the other of not pulling their weight, or pulling too much weight.

Rule Three will be update soon. Stay tuned!

The Five Golden Rules 5

The Five Golden Rules 5

I have read a book a few months ago. The book was about “What makes people successful”.

One particular habit that is most useful to wedding planning is Habit Number Two: “ Begin with the end in mind.” This is based on the principle that all things are created twice – first in the mind, then in the physical.

Problems  can arise when couples don’t have a clear picture of the type of wedding they want. Without a clear plan, it’s easier to get talked into things you don’t really need or want.

No two weddings are ever going to be the same, so every wedding is an exception to the rules of wedding etiquette and planning. You have in front of you a clean canvas ready to be painted. You may hear people say “ It’s your day, do whatever you want.” This is true to some extent, but it’s also true the day happens to your partner’s, your partner’s parent’s and your guest’s day as all.

Consequently, it’s as silly to say “ Do whatever you want” as it is to say “ Try to please everyone” These are the extremes you should be avoiding.

Find the middle ground that resolves around a sense of balance between you, your family, your friends and your guests.

Sit down with your partner and create a vision of your wedding. It may change over time and this is fine, but at least you will have made a start.

Ask yourselves:

  • What do we want the guests to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want our parents and immediate family to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want the bridal party to say about our wedding day?
  • What do we want to say about our wedding day?

Keep these outcomes in mind as you begin to organize your wedding.

Please contact us anytime if you need to discuss your wedding planning in Sydney.
Although we are wedding photographers, we have been in Sydney’s wedding industry over a decade. We have met many couples who got married in Sydney during the time. We should be able to give you some advise. 🙂

The Honeymoon

The Honeymoon

Traditionally, the groom plans the honeymoon, ad foots the bill as well – although

most couples in Sydney these days simply share costs.

If you do plan a surprise trip to your partner, make sure you have a good idea of her
expectations and plan things you will both enjoy doing.

You will also need to advise her to what clothes to pack (beach or city?) and ensure
she has all the necessary documentation and vaccinations if you are going to the place like Africa!

For many couples, on the other hand, sitting down together to plan the trip of a lifetime is one of the most exciting parts of the pre-wedding experience, and something  they can do without family interference.

So, perhaps you could take on the research and organization, but do the planning together.

We had an opportunity to photograph a wedding in Satorini, Greece this July this year.

It has became such an amazing trip for us and the photos turned out to be really good, too.

Since Aussie dollars are very strong, you might want to take advantage for it?
