How to overcome being a nervous bride :-)

Today I've taken another booking from a bride and groom who HATE having their photos taken.
Over the years I've become somewhat of a specialist with nervous brides (though It is unusual for both the Bride and Groom to be nervous), and I have a special strategy for helping them overcome their nervousness.

Its quite simple really... I meet them often... maybe 3..4..5.. times between booking the wedding and the actual Wedding Day. This means we form a close relationship, I meet the children, mum, mother in law... In fact anyone who is there when we meet up.

We talk about them, their families, their wedding... all sorts of stuff, It doesn't have to be wedding related. By the time the wedding arrives, you/they are so comfortable in my company, nervousness doesn't come into it.

Today's bride and groom will have a pre wedding shoot which will be fun and casual, with or without children and wherever they like to go. So, it could be the beach, park or just the back garden in summer. I want my wedding couples to be so comfortable that smiling (or not) isn't an issue in their wedding photographs.

If you are worried about having your wedding photos taken, don't despair...
Just give us a ring, buy some Lady Grey Tea  and we can chat about how to overcome your nervousness... By the way... Milk chocolate digestive biscuits go really well with a cup of tea and lots of wedding talk ha ha.

Here are a few couple of our most nervous brides... 

That was when we booked I must add... By the time the weddings came shyness etc. was forgotten and a good time was had by all.

Have a great week
