Nicola can meet you at your chosen venue around four weeks before your big day. At this meeting we discuss the final details of your day and list your chosen group shots ensuring nothing is missed or left to chance. We will then have a completely ‘chilled out’ pre wedding shoot. We take candid shots of you both and following this shoot we hope you will be at ease before your big day.
On the wedding day we meet around two hours before your ceremony in order to capture those all important preparation shots. We capture the emotion between you & your closest friends and family.
We ensure that we capture the fine detail of your day photographing the dress, suits, buttonholes, shoes, rings, jewellery and favourite perfume etc before you leave to travel to your ceremony. We capture those moments prior to you both meeting at the ceremony!
During your ceremony we capture the arrival and entrance and walk down the aisle, we can position ourself at the front and back of your ceremony room. From these two positions we find that we can capture all aspects of your ceremony including those all important looks between you both as you are married.
Following the formal ceremony, we discreetly move amongst the guests capturing genuine emotions of the day. These are the images that define the Shakespeare style. The ability to capture the right shot at the right time turns these moments into everlasting memories.
After you have ‘mingled’ with your guests, it is then time for your photographs, as a newly married couple. It is these natural shots that will become some of your most treasured memories.
Capturing genuine emotion on camera is a very difficult. We believe that our relaxed, approachable style ensures that both you and your guests feel comfortable with being photographed and it is through this style that we are able to capture the beautiful images that have become our signature. We are always deeply honoured to be asked to photograph the most important day of peoples’ lives and endeavour to make the experience wholly enjoyable.
Following your big day your images will be fully re-touched ensuring that they are as perfect as possible. Your wedding pictures are made into a dvd slideshow & is set to music it is a lovely way to showcase your day. You then have the usb of your images from which you can print from & choose your favourite images to be made into an album made by yourselves or one of our beautiful Graphi Studio albums
