I can’t tell you more that I’m so excited to capturing your moment and every single session on that day will means a lot for your future, so today I’m gonna share to you few bride and groom essentials during getting ready session. Dear lovely couple my name is Bima and I’m a destination wedding photographer, if this gonna be your first time to visit my blog than I put some romantic couple pictures on my portfolio and hundred of marriage and honeymoon information on bride and groom page.
What Happen on Getting Ready Session
Generally I need 60 – 90 minutes for capturing getting ready session, so when I arrive at your home or hotels than I’m gonna introduce my self to family and friends who belong to your guests, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. I know that this is a simple steps for me to get closer to your day and know who are coming to your wedding. After this I’m gonna have about 10 minutes discussion with my shooter than we gonna separate each other, I will stay with the bride and my shooter will stay with the groom.
I pick up my camera and start shooting for candid moment due this preparation, surely you don’t need to care about me or even see my lens or being camera addict, just enjoy your moment and feel it on your heart. Both of me and my shooter will continue to shoot some details such as rings, gown, vest, shirt, watch, and even tie and shoe tying than surely your flower bouquet.
During the shooting I’m gonna invite your bridesmaid to accompany you in a frame and I will asking them to interact with your naturally to get more unique moments. When you dress up and finishing your make up and hair do than I’m gonna shoot for surrounding moment again and keep hunting for your parents, brothers, sister, and other family member. Mostly I will get beautiful moments too from the gift exchange, writing a vow, or even when you receive some jewellery from your grand mother.
6 Bride and Groom Things to Provide During Wedding Preparation
On this part I’m gonna share to you about what bride and groom usually do and what matters during the session, hope it will inspire you as well.
1 – Make Up & Hair Do
Some amateur hair do stylist and make up artist used to late for working even they did it to make your looks stunning, in fact this situation will make a chaos for your whole schedule. The best way is by working with professional or asking they who are doing this make up – hair do job for just hobby to aware with your schedule. No matter who they are but if they do this business as a professional than they might give you more time to get relax and joyful moment with your relatives.
My suggestion is,
If make up and hair do seems to be late than ask anyone to help you for dress up, it will be more efficient for your make up and hair do artist to finish their job after you wear the gown.
2 – Details
During the preparation I sure that you will get a bit nervous or busy with any kind of hair do, make up, or writing your vows. I will be more than happy and appreciate if you could provide me and my team about your details collected into one good pack such as bridal gown, rings and jewellery (you could keep it by your self), shoes, shirt, wedding bands, and the bouquet.
Great suggestion that I could tell you is do as my previous couple did, they provide all the wedding details in the same room or nearest room from their make up area so it will be easy for all of professional and all team to move around and get those details.
3 – Wedding Dress Hanger
If you wear long wedding dress than I need to find a spot to take a picture of it in a whole set, most couple don’t think too much about this hanger and only put old and poor hanger to hang it but honestly I need to shoot your bridal in a glamorous way.
My suggestion is it’s gonna be great if you could buy nice bridal hanger no matter from Amazon (kindly check the link) or by asking your bridla designer to provide it for you.
4 – Cloths Preparing
Make sure you remove all the price tag and sticker from all your wedding details, trust me I got few couple who wear shoes and flat sandals on the wedding day which still have a tag on the shoe bottom and hell yeah I could tell them in person during the day.
5 – Food and Water for Everyone
Having some food, snacks, fruits, and a lot of mineral water in your preparation room is highly recommended than provide it for everyone in that room. Make sure you eat some food before your ceremony cause I know that by having deep stress and nervous than some couple forget to eat than they got dehydrated and hungry during the party.
Please remind to drink a lot water especially when you got a beach wedding party like what I did in Bali and Maldives
6 – Same Locations Will be Better
Having a wedding preparation in separate place is classic but I would suggest you to take your fiancee, family member even some special guests into one same hotel with you. You will got this method so efficient for everything and you could enjoy the rest of the time while waiting for make up, hair do even you guys can still chill out after the ceremony while I take a post wedding shots for you.
Now you know that there are few essentials things that you could provide on your wedding preparation, stay relax and let your team and professional do their job properly cause I believe that they will do the best effort for your glorious day. I hope you got inspire from the topic that I share today and would be so honour if I can attending your wedding and become of your eye witness for capturing moments.
