Have you asked around for recommendations?
Do you know anyone who has been married recently or have you seen a wedding album that you like? Look at the real weddings section on www.youandyourwedding.co.uk for inspiration or contact a professional association such as the Master Photographer’s Association.
How much of the day you want photographed?
Do you want photographes of every part of the day or just the ceremony and important moments such as cutting the cake? How much does the price drop if the photographer is there for only part of the day?
What is your budget?
Prices vary enormously and you’ll need to do your homework, comparing what’s on offer to find the best photographer. It is important that you like him or her too!
