3 benefits of hiring a wedding planner for your Suffolk garden wedding

3 benefits of hiring a wedding planner for your Suffolk garden wedding

For many of the couples I work with, they have chosen to leave the city and come back to their home county of Suffolk for their wedding celebrations.  Suffolk is such a great choice for any wedding, but in particular, it makes a wonderful way to celebrate where you grew up and it allows you to create further fond memories of this truly delightful county.

For many of these couples, their parents still live in the county and therefore are planning to use their private residence as the main venue for their wedding.  Also perhaps choosing the local church for the ceremony.

I get it! It can be super confusing.  You've been searching online for the perfect wedding photographer for your Suffolk wedding.  You've found someone amazing who really resonates with your personalities and you're at the point of booking. But wait.  You're now looking at a huge pricing list, filled with a ton of different packages with lots of different lengths of coverage.  And you think...

So let's get straight to it...

It's up to you!

Yep, it's as easy as that.  As far as my own approach is concerned, there's no right or wrong answer, no 'way it's always been done' and no specific rules.  So you can now breathe a sigh of relief.  Done? OK, let's move on.

Whilst planning your wedding in Suffolk you'll no doubt be spending a lot of time online, researching local wedding suppliers that resonate with you and your aspirations for your wedding day.  And once you have compiled a list of those wedding suppliers, you'll be looking to reach out to them to check their availability and to discuss your plans.

When it comes to wedding photography, your photographer will have their own way of discussing their services with you.  Whilst some may choose to chat with you on the phone, or maybe via Skype, many photographers will actually invite you to chat in person, at a location and time convenient to you both.

An impromptu shoot for Suffolk Wedding Planner / Caroline Gould

You know, sometimes its those last minute shoots with very little prep and planning that end up looking great.  This was such a shoot when my good friend and Suffolk wedding planner Caroline Gould asked me to take some new promo shots for her forthcoming re-brand and for use in various publications that she would soon be writing articles for. We headed down to central Ipswich for a coffe at Arlingtons Brasserie, one of our favourite places and venue to the monthly wedding network events that we run.  Over drinks Caroline explained that she needed some new headshots which captured 'her' and some other shots that kind of explained what she did without being too cheesy.

So after an hour or so shooting in and around the coffee house, this is what we achieved.  I was really pleased with the outcome, as someone that knows Caroline well, I think the portraits capture her bubbly, friendly persona beautifully.
