Your Wedding Day Timeline

One thing we are often asked about is the timings for the wedding day. This will mainly revolve around your ceremony time which will be set already. The venue will most probably suggest the time for the start of your wedding breakfast, and typically gives us 1 1/2 hours from the end of the ceremony to the start of the wedding breakfast, during which time we will usually capture formal group photos and couple portraits. 

Wedding timings can vary greatly between different weddings but to help you out here is our sample timeline as a starting point:

11.30 Bride Prep
