Wedding Questionnaire | Basics

Thank you for booking your wedding photography with me. I am looking forward to working with you and will do everything that I can to ensure that your experience is the best that it can be. In order to achieve that I would love for you to take a few minutes to fill out this important information sheet which will give me a better understanding of your day.

Please complete this around 6-8 weeks before your wedding date.

Detailed Timeline: Please add a detailed timeline for the day below, including time for me to arrive, times and location for Bridal Preperation, ceremony, Reception and any other locations. Please also include times of meal, speeches, first dance, cake cutting and any other important parts of the day. I recommend allocating 25-30 minutes to capture 5-7 different group photographs and 20-25 minutes for your bride and groom portraits. Please also check how much coverage you have me booked for and that you have enough time booked for me to cover everything you need.
Please check through your timeline and confirm that you have enough coverage booked to cover everything that you need. Weddings usually overrun so please ensure that you have booked coverage until at least 30 minutes after the first dance if you would like this captured. Anything overrunning by up to 30 minutes will be covered with my compliments but if your wedding does overrun beyond this then please let me know if you would like me to:
Group shots can be very important, especially for some of your family members but please be aware that they can take quite a while as people are never in a rush on a wedding day. I recommend capturing between 5-8 different combinations and this can be done in approximately 25-30 minutes. More than this is possible but this will affect the amount of time you have to enjoy yourself on the day and will limit the number of natural storytelling photographs that I can take Please ensure that the best man/ushers have a list of group photographs to help organize these. A large group photograph of all guests will take up to 10-15 minutes to coordinate and I usually suggest leaving this as peoples faces are very small in such a large group. If this shot is important to you then please account for this extra time in your timeline. Group photographs required:
Please note that it is not necessary for me to visit your venue before the date as my style is very much to tell your story as things happen rather than create a pre determined set of photographs that look the same as every other wedding that has taken place there. It is very useful to have a pre wedding chat to run through your timeline and other details around 1-2 weeks before your wedding date to ensure things run smoothly. This should take around 20-30 minutes and can be done over the phone, on Skype or in person over a coffee in the Amersham or Beaconsfield area. Please get in touch once you have completed your questionnaire to arrange a time for your run-through. Preferred option for run through:
