Congratulations, you’re engaged and have chosen your date and venue. It’s time to secure your booking and to book your wedding photographer. We can be booked up to 2 years in advance, with the average time being a year before the big day. Don’t worry, if you are getting married sooner than that, please send us a message and we can check our diary. We take lots of last-minute wedding bookings – such as off-season or weekday weddings, as these generally have more availability. If you’ve booked a Saturday wedding in June, July or August, it’s important to book as soon as possible – which we’d love to be us! Another great incentive to book early is to guarantee your package price and potentially save you money. Even if your wedding is 2 years away, you will only pay the prices at the time of booking.
