Andrea & Patrick's Wedding- The Waters Edge

Andrea & Patrick are stylish, sophisticated people and every detail of their wedding day was exemplary of their style. Andrea’s bridesmaids dresses are absolute perfection, that gradient is top notch! Their wedding ceremony and reception at Waters Edge Event Center was adorned with some beautiful and simple eucalyptus leaves, and on our plates was some truly divine courses. It’s hard for me to say which part of their day I enjoyed more, the “First Look without the Look” (named by me) where they held hands and spoke to one another on either side of a column, and enjoyed a moment together before they committed to forever OR their beloved dog Ollie, and Dog of Honour signing their wedding license, because he really is the Best Boy ( like LOOK at his face!) What’s your favorite?

If you want to see more of this beautiful day, I highly suggest you take a peek at their wedding video from Stenlund Videography.

Making a Wedding Day Timeline

I can make wedding timelines in my sleep, but asking someone who has never been married before to make a timeline of how they HOPE everything will play out is just cruel. So even though I am here to make a wedding timeline FOR you, here is a guide to help you get started with your wedding day, and a PDF below that has all the info someone could need about your wedding day!

Ask Yourself

How many hours does your photography package cover? what do you want photographed?

What time is sunset?

How long will hair and makeup take for the number of girls getting ready?

How long is your ceremony?

How much of your family do you want included in your family photos?

Are you doing a First Look?

Are you doing First Dances and/or Parent Dances?

Are you going to toss your bouquet? cut the cake? shoe game? garter toss?

Wedding Day Timeline

Now, not every wedding is going to follow this timeline. If you are doing a First look the order of events will need to be rearranged. Every wedding is different! The good news is, a good wedding photographer will sit with you and work out all these little details ( Like I do! ;) ) but if you want to get a head start, here is a guide to help you along the way!

Time Guide lines start with the ceremony time and work backwards from there. Add and Subtract the number of minutes/hours to give you a start and end time for your wedding day!

*Bride & Maid of Honour and Mother of the Bride are Priority when getting Hair and Makeup done. Make sure their beauty services are scheduled to be finished well before the photographer arrives.

11:30 Photographer Arrives - 1.5-2.5 hours before departure time

-30 minutes for detail photos- flowers, jewellery, shoes etc

-45 minutes to put the wedding gown and attire on and take photos

-20 minutes for photos with parents, bridesmaids, etc

1:30 Depart for Ceremony- Travel time - 15 extra minutes for wiggle room

2:00-2:30 Ceremony Time + Ceremony Duration (+30 minutes)

2:30-3:00- Family Photos + 30 minutes

3:00-5:00- Wedding Party/ Bride and Groom Formals on Location(s) + Travel Time TO and FROM locations

5:15 - Entrance , First Dances, Welcome Speech/Grace +45 minutes

6:00- Dinner is served + 2 hours at least (not including dessert or extra courses)

8:00- More dances, Games/Traditions +1 hour

9:00- End of the night Photo / Photographers conclude Services

Everything you need to know to properly prepare for your Engagement Session! Engagement Sessions are one of my favorite types of photoshoots, they you the opportunity to show your personality and relationship quirks in a carefully chosen setting. An engagement session is a fantastic way for me to get to know my clients, my clients get to know me, learn how to properly pose, get some beautiful photos for your guestbook/Save the dates and get comfortable in front of the camera; away from the pressure of their wedding day.
