One of the things I have realised when photographing weddings is seeing that when the lovely bridal couple do the day their way, the day always flows better.
If you want to have your dog walk the rings down the aisle, then do it. If you want a clown to juggle for entertainment whilst the guests wait for the bride to arrive, then go for it. The point is, have want you want on your wedding day. Don’t worry about the opinions of others, this is your special day and it is all about what the both of you want that matters. You get to create the memories.
Avoid the ‘I wish we did it the way we wanted to…’ after the wedding and hold fast to your dream day.
