A Simple and Relaxed Wedding Video Package

Wouldn’t it be nice to have something to show off the day to people who couldn’t be there? Not only the guests who couldn’t make…

How a Wedding Band Will Add Magic to Your Wedding

I know when we got married we were really torn over whether to have a wedding band and DJ or just a DJ. We LOVE music. We LOVE live music. But after planning everything else when it came to picking a band we soon realised we should’ve debated it sooner!

Wedding Photographer or Videographer, or both?

It was when I saw my own wedding photographer roll his eyes at the mere mention of people filming our day that I started to wonder what the issue was with wedding photographers and videographers working together. How sad, I thought. Why on earth would he be so obvious about his dislike for a film crew when he’s never even met my guys before, let alone worked with them? But after a little research and asking a few of my…
