Lisa Lucas Photography | Wonderful Wedding Suppliers

 

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Lisa Lucas LRPS, and the proud owner of Lisa Lucas Photography. I specialise in luxury wedding photography, but I also photograph Tudor and Medieval reenactment, being part of a Tudor reenactment group myself.

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

I enjoy the start of the day, everybody getting ready, they’re all so excited for the day ahead. And it’s early on that I have the privilege to explore the ceremony and receptions rooms, depending on the venue of course, before the guests arrive. I can use this time to capture all the gorgeous details.

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

Make sure you meet your photographer before you book them. You may have visited their website, and fallen in love with their images, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to get on. Your photographer is the one supplier who will spend the entire day with you, so you as a couple must both feel comfortable and relaxed in your photographer’s company. If you don’t get on, if you don’t completely trust them to do the job, then it’s going to show in the photographs.

What keeps you passionate?

Other than absolutely loving photography and weddings, I simply adore meeting new couples and joining them on their planning journey to their ideal wedding. A wedding may have the same basic elements, but every single one is different, and I get so excited hearing about plans and seeing them come to fruition on the day.

Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?

I’m extremely passionate about my couples taking away a gorgeous photobook of their images, so I include one in my photography package. In my opinion, there’s nothing quite like sitting down together, with a glass of fizz and looking through a book at your images – an online gallery just isn’t the same. The trend for having a photobook seems to come and go, but I will always offer one.

What’s next for your business?

I’m very excited for 2017 as I continue to build my business, invest in myself as a female entrepreneur, and work with wonderful couples on their luxurious weddings. I’m also looking for my first couple who are having a Tudor-themed wedding – with my passion for this period in history, it would be such a pleasure to photograph.

How do we book/use your services?

Drop me a message if you’d like to arrange a consultation meeting – remember to always meet your photographer – and I won’t let you book me unless we meet. I’d be delighted if you feel you’d like to book me at that first meeting, at which point we sign a written contract and a non-refundable booking fee is paid, which reserves your chosen date, and you’ve booked yourself a wedding photographer.

J Rowlands Photos | Wonderful Wedding Suppliers

Today we hear from the wonderful J Rowlands Photos, I am sure you will agree their photos are simply stunning!

J Rowlands Photography - Wonderful Wedding Suppliers - Little Tree Weddings (1)J Rowlands Photography - Wonderful Wedding Suppliers - Little Tree Weddings (2)J Rowlands Photography - Wonderful Wedding Suppliers - Little Tree Weddings (3)J Rowlands Photography - Wonderful Wedding Suppliers - Little Tree Weddings (5)

Who are you and what do you do?

Well…where do I start? I am a Wedding Photographer and I have always loved photographs and the memories they bring back.

My husband Karl bought me my first DSLR one Christmas, I got stuck in and made the most of every opportunity that has come my way…from portraits and dogs, to dance shows and christenings. Then, not long after my own wedding, I had the opportunity to assist at a wedding as a second shooter.

And I loved it.

I felt honoured capturing those memories for the bride and groom.

From there, I focused on building up my experience, gaining photography qualifications and then after a few years – my first wedding booking!

And I have been documenting love stories for brides and grooms ever since.
Now, I get to do what I love for a living, meet and make new friends and capture beautiful memories and I couldn’t be happier.

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

I love love love the bride’s first looks….the room is just filled with love and awe at the bride as she walks down the aisle to her partner!

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

Don’t fall in to the trap of pleasing others! Seating plans – it’s just to eat their meal, times, location, colours, pleasing other people is NOT what YOUR day is all about!!!

Make your decisions as a couple and stick to them – yes listen to other people’s opinions and views but you don’t HAVE to take them!!!

Also – take care with package deals – sometimes they don’t always work out cost-effective…..I offer photography packages as a guide line to couples, but I always point out they aren’t set in stone as each wedding is different so they can be adjusted according to THEIR requirements for THEIR day!!!

What keeps you passionate?

My love for photography, my love for weddings, and seeing client’s faces when they see their sneak-peeks and reading their reviews!!

Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?

Yes and No….

I do like to keep up-to-date with the ‘latest looks’ or ‘in trend’ weddings, styles and colour schemes so I have an idea when couples mention something they’ve recently spotted on social media etc…but I also love it when a couple come to me with something different and a bit quirky and then I get my creativity flowing!

What’s next for your business?

I am excited to be exhibiting at a Wedding Fair in March….I’ve never exhibited before, so prepping for that, in-between wedding meetings, print orders and engagement shoots!

How do we book/use your services?

Send me a quick email via my website on the Contact Page 🙂 or directly to my email address.

Pitch Up and Play | Wonderful Wedding Suppliers

Today we are so very excited to hear from Pitch Up and Play! We have had this in the pipeline for a little while and we can finally share it with you! It’s certainly one of my most favourite suppliers I have found while on this journey! Plus they are offering an amazing 10% discount for you lovely readers, all you need to do is let them know you heard about them through us and bob’s your uncle! Anyway photos…

Who are you and what do you do?

Hello! I’m Danielle and I own Pitch Up and Play, a bespoke childcare company for Weddings and Events. Growing up I was dubbed the Mary Poppins of the family and I have always adored children. I trained as a primary school teacher and as much as I loved working with children and seeing them develop, the workload and stress meant I couldn’t do all of the fun and creative things with them and I really missed that! So, I took the plunge and decided to set up my own childcare business. Whilst developing that over the course of two years I attended weddings of friends and family and realised that at times there were some seriously bored children who tended to act up due to lack of attention and being surrounded by lots of people they didn’t know very well and on top of that- having to be quiet! I found myself helping out a lot and noticed that when activities had been put on for the children, they were so much happier and there were less interruptions and everyone is so much more relaxed!

I noticed there was a gap in the market for a fresh take on plastic and dated mobile creches and that was when Pitch Up and Play was born! Our name links to our gorgeous bell tents that we love to pitch at Spring/Summer weddings. The children LOVE that they have their own special place that’s just for them to have bundles of fun in! The moment that they get shown into the tent and they see everything on offer their eyes light up and they dive straight in! That is such a great feeling.

We provide several services to the wedding industry such as Nannies, Evening Babysitters, Kids Tables, Activity Packs, Play Dens and Pop Up Creches. We cover Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and parts of The Cotswolds. Our aim is for every booking to be like a party for the mini VIPs! This ensures the Bride & Groom can truly relax and it gives the grown-up guests an opportunity to really let their hair down knowing that their children are having just as much fun as them. We don’t just set up a mobile creche and leave them to it, we plan party games, shows, nature walks, I Spy camera tours, scavenger hunts, photo booth and fancy dress, DVD & popcorn nights, slumber parties and pretty much anything that guarantees real FUN! Also, you should see our goodie bags… they are unreal!
What really sets us apart is our staff. I only ever employ staff that are a minimum Level 3 trained in Childcare and/or Education. Most of them are Teachers or trainee Teachers so they are DBS checked, fully referenced, First Aid trained and experienced in childcare. It is important to my business that my staff are the highest quality you can find; quick thinkers, problem solvers, creative, bubbly, fun and safety is paramount to them.

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

Weddings are the most fun and I love every part of the day and evening! I particularly like it when the styling matches the Bride and Groom personalities. It’s so nice to see little things that matches their character and their own personal style. After the ceremony when everyone has settled in is one of the best moments for me, it’s hard to get all of your friends and family in one place at the same time so there’s always a real magical feeling when everyone is chatting, laughing and enjoying some bubbles together. My favourite part of our wedding creches is when we do DVD & Popcorn Night. The children don’t take long to wind down after an action packed day with us! We all snuggle up with soft blankets, comfy cushions and beanbags and have a really good giggle!

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

Well I’m still waiting for him to put a ring on it (nearly 6 years tut tut!) so I can’t really give any advice to help with the planning process but what I will say is that weddings are becoming more and more unique and undone these days, there’s no such thing as perfect so break some rules and listen to your own hearts! It always comes together in the end and it’s only ever about the two of you on the day. Of course, if you want some really good advice then that would be booking Wedding Childcare! We believe that our services give you and your guests the opportunity to truly relax, especially if you are the bride. Children absolutely make weddings (they’re so adorable all playing together in their little smart outfits) but there’s absolutely no need for your child to be having a meltdown, crying snot and crumbled rusk into your wedding dress! It’s a long old day for children and it can be such a snore-fest for them so booking a pop-up creche or a play den is without a doubt one of those things you will be so grateful you did. Our clients are always amazed when they see all the great things we have brought with us and hearing them go “WOW” when they walk in makes us feel as proud as punch!

What keeps you passionate?

Receiving reviews from our couples keeps us passionate! When you’re in the moment with all of the children you can be a little too focused on what is coming up next and making sure you stick to timings and that all the mini VIPs are having loads of fun. So when it’s all over you can barely remember what went on and I, like most business owners, can be my own harshest critic so it’s important to have a great team around you to keep you grounded and feeling positive.
Also, I get to be creative everyday and that really keeps me passionate. When the emails are piling up and the to-do list spans weeks I can always stop, make a cup of tea and play around with a tassel garland or a pompom hairband for an hour or two! The wedding industry is so inspiring and much less traditional than I expected and that makes everyday different and exciting.

Do you like to keep up with trends? What’s your biggest trend to watch currently?

I think sometimes people see the word ‘trends’ as a bit of a dirty word but if that’s what couples like and are inspired by (you’ll find me attempting flares at least once every year and I definitely had a unicorn cake for my birthday!) then why not roll with it? Our style is very boho, rustic and vintage but I’ll be the first to throw metallics or jewel tones in the mix because I see it and I like it! This style is currently ‘on trend’ and when it’s not we will stay true to our identity but we will definitely adapt to what our clients love and want at their wedding because customer service and satisfaction is extremely important to us. In terms of trends for brides and grooms I adore barn/field festival style weddings where the bride is in a floaty boho number and the groom in tweed or navy blue. I recently read a blog about a couple who had their wedding right out in the sticks and their guests manned the bar on a rota! I loved this idea.

What’s next for your business?

We are buying more bell tents so that when we can duplicate bookings or set up outdoor Play Dens at weddings who do not require the childcare but really need a space for their mini VIPs to play and hang out. They also make a great space for disco naps, baby changing and feeding and these start from £200. We have just started setting up Play Dens and entertainment at children’s birthday parties and these are going down a storm, we particularly love creating a themed party such as Superheroes or Under the Sea! We are now researching fetes and festivals where we can take our bell tent play dens so that parents can drop off their children for a few hours whilst they enjoy some grown up time. In terms of weddings, we are going to see how our first proper Spring/Summer goes… but judging by the diary I think it’s going to be a brilliant wedding season, I’m squealing with excitement already!

How do we book/use your services?

You can send an enquiry through our website or email us below. We get back to you within a day and if you leave a telephone number we will call you for a chat and hear all about your requirements. We are BIG on customer service and being completely bespoke to suit our clients, this has been mentioned again and again in our testimonials so we must be doing something right!

10 Worries Every Bride-to-be Has & How To Avoid Them | Kayleigh Adams Photography | Guest Post

Today we have a guest post by the wonderful Kayleigh of Kayleigh Adams Photography, Kayleigh and I met at a wedding I was attending and she was photographing. Being in the industry I am always on the lookout and loved her way of working with the guests. I told her about the blog and here we are today! Hopefully this is her first of more posts guest posts on LTW! Anyway enough rambling lets read!

If you’re a bride-to-be, I can almost guarantee that you’ve got a lot of ideas, things to do and you probably have a million and one lists. Am I right? Hopefully you’ve got everything under control and the wedding plans are taking shape.

I’m Kayleigh Adams, a professional wedding photographer from The Cotswolds, and in my job I meet lots of fabulous brides, each with their own way of doing things and own unique spin on their weddings. Meeting so many brides means that I am aware of some of the things that they worry about and from my experience, I have detailed advice, solutions and preventatives that you can apply to banish those worries for the big day ahead!

1. I’m worried about running out of time on the morning of the wedding.

What happens if your alarm goes off too late? What happens if you can’t get your hair and make-up done in time? What happens if the wedding car breaks down and you have to walk to your wedding? What happens if you’re over-reacting?! The more likely problem you’re going to face is not being able to sleep before your wedding day! You’ll be far too excited to have time to sleep, but do make sure you get a couple of hours in at least so you’re not ready for bed when the party gets started. Also make sure that you have everything you’re going to possibly need, along with spares of everything!

2. Will it will rain on my wedding day?

This is one of the most common worries that I come across with my brides. If it rains, it rains. Is it going to completely ruin your wedding day or is it going to mean less? I’m pretty sure the answer is NO, so my advice if it the weather isn’t 100% cooperative – just embrace it! Why not consider buying some umbrellas, or having some colourful wellies on hand? This way we can head outside and get some great ‘rainy day’ shots. This has happened to me so many times, and I can assure you, my couples always love their rainy day pictures!

3. Will my wedding dress fit on the day?

If you’ve bought your dress from a bridal boutique, you probably will have had several fitting appointments where a dedicated professional has altered your dress so that it fits you like a glove. Make sure you tell them exactly how the dress feels and mention if anything feels loose, tight or anything else. The more specific you can be here means that on the wedding day the dress will fit perfectly. Also, when you go for your fitting, it’s a good idea to take the underwear that you’re planning on wearing on the day so you can make sure the bust etc fits perfectly.

Kayleigh Adams Photography - Little Tree Weddings - LTW (1)

4. Will my hair and make up look OK on the day?

I can’t stress this enough; make sure you have trials before the wedding! The majority of brides I work with have hair and make up trials prior to the wedding. This in my opinion is SO important, as it means you can be as picky and particular as you like without the pressure of it being the actual wedding day. If you think the make up is too dark, tell your make up artist and see if they can adjust it for you (just bear in mind that for your photographs the make up might have to be slightly heavier for it to show in images). Many professional hair and make up artists will take photographs and make notes of exactly what products and style you are happy with, so when it comes to the wedding day they can simply follow their notes. Also remember that your hair and make up needs to last all day, so I would advise booking in your trials perhaps on the day on your hen party, or ‘date night’ with the other half. This way you can check everything stays in place and that you are comfortable.

Kayleigh Adams Photography - Little Tree Weddings - LTW (4)

5. If I’m going to be able to use the bathroom on my wedding day in my wedding dress?!

This should definitely be a consideration when you choose your wedding dress in the first place. Your wedding day is going to be a long day, and you will be on your feet for a lot of it. Friends and family will want to buy you drinks so when you’re choosing your dress you need to ensure that you are comfortable and that you can move around in it. When it comes to using the bathroom, enlist your bridesmaids to help. Many venues will allow you to use a bathroom that is a little more private, which is ideal for the bride (there are many blogs and posts online that give you ‘advice’ of the best way to use the toilet in your wedding dress – take a look)!

6. Will everything be perfect on the actual day?

This is another question I get asked time and time again. My answer is always the same; if something isn’t exactly perfect (eg, the table plan is slightly too far to the right) is anyone other than you going to notice? I can almost guarantee that the answer is no. The guests at your wedding are there to celebrate your marriage and enjoy the day with you both. You need to remember that the most important thing on the day is you as a couple.

7. What am I going to do with my wedding dress after the big day?

It’s unlikely you’re going to wear it again, unless you decide to dress up on every anniversary of your wedding! If you have children, why not have it made into a dressing up dress? Or consider having the dress professionally cleaned and then display it in a deep box frame? Otherwise, if you can bear to part with it, try advertising it online and see if you can sell it. Lots of people look for pre-loved wedding dresses online, especially when they can see images of the dress being worn to see how it looks on a body.

Kayleigh Adams Photography - Little Tree Weddings - LTW (6)

8. The flowers from my wedding are too beautiful (and cost too much!) to put in the bin.

A lot of my brides like to keep their flowers in the house for as long as they can. Not only will it remind you of your big day, but it will make the house/room smell amazing! Have a look online for ways of preserving your flowers – you could dry them out, press them or even send them away to have made into a work of art.

Kayleigh Adams Photography - Little Tree Weddings - LTW (3)

9. There’s so much wedding cake left over! What should I do with it!?

If you’ve got wedding cake left over from the day before, why not ask the venue to cut it up (if they haven’t already), put it in some tupperware for you and take it home. You can have cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of the week (ideal right!?), or why not invite family/friends over to enjoy a piece with you. Of course, there’s the old tradition of keeping the top tier for the christening of your first-born child, but how many people actually do that these days?

Kayleigh Adams Photography - Little Tree Weddings - LTW (2)

10. Will I be really sad when it’s all over?

Inevitably you’re going to feel a little sad when it’s all over, mainly due to the sheer amount of time and effort you have put into making your wedding day perfect. The day after your wedding you will probably be exhausted, so my advice is to spend the day after basking in the joy of everything that your day was. If you can, spend the day after with your new husband/wife, your families and enjoy opening the lovely cards and gifts that your guests so kindly gave you. After each wedding I photograph, I try to get a few ‘sneak peek’ photos up on my Facebook page for you to enjoy too. Obviously if you’ve got a honeymoon planned straight after the wedding, you’ve got nothing to be sad about – really make the most of your time away!

Bloomwood Photography | Guest Post

The team here at LTW love guest posts, we also love photography! Today we hear from Emma [great name!] who tells us all about her business, writes us a personal message and gives us tips.

Before we get started there are just two days to enter our March competition! Enter Here…

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-3bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-2bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-1

Who are you and what do you do?

We are Bloomwood Photography and we are wedding photographers

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-11bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-10

Brief description of what we offer…

No two weddings are ever the same, and we don’t treat our clients the same. Our style is contemporary with a vintage feel, capturing photographs to tell the story of the day.

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-12bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-8

More detailed description of what we offer…

Based in central Essex, we photograph weddings across the region, and tailor our services to your requirements for truly beautiful memories of your special day.  With both female and male photographers, we capture shots from preparations and throughout the day, and aim to make you feel as comfortable as possible without being intrusive.

Our style is contemporary with a vintage feel, capturing natural photographs to tell the story of the day, as well as the traditional group shots with family and friends.  We spend time meeting with you and getting to know you in the build up to your wedding, and offer guidance as to the photography we offer, but ultimately tailor our services to make a bespoke package for your requirements.

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-13bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-6

Wedding Coverage

Whilst we tailor our wedding coverage to meet your needs, included in our services as standard are the following:

  • Complimentary ‘engagement shoot’ in the build up to your wedding day
  • Soft cover photo book from your engagement shoot
  • The wedding ceremony
  • Traditional and group photographs
  • Natural photographs of the wedding party and guests
  • A password protected online gallery for friends and family to view
  • All edited images provided on a disc with full copyright to print and reproduce
  • A bespoke designed DVD slideshow to music

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-14bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-5

Typical process with a couple…

We meet up initially to discuss your wedding photography and for you to view albums and galleries of previous weddings we have photographed.

You would then have an engagement shoot, this is a great chance to spend some time with you in a more casual environment, and get you used to being in front of the camera lens.  We then meet four weeks before the wedding day to go through the final schedule for the BIG day and in order to find out exactly what you want from us, there isn’t time to be wasted on the wedding day itself, so preparation time is well spent to ensure that we capture all the photographs you want.

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-15bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-4

What’s the best bit of advice you can give to couples in the planning process?

The first thing we would say is that not all wedding photographers are the same… have a look around and talk to people to find out what styles you like and what you expect from your wedding photography.  A wedding is a personal experience shared with friends and family, and the photos that record all of the moments and little details are just as personal.  We get to know every couple who let us be a part of their wedding and building a relationship is an important part of getting great photographs. If you get on with your photographer and trust them it allows for a far more relaxed and enjoyable wedding day… and a happy couple makes for better photographs.

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-16

Five adjectives to describe our style..

  • Vintage,
  • Fun,
  • Relaxed,
  • Natural &
  • Contemporary

bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-17bloomwood-photography-little-tree-weddings-7

Most Proud of…

Since starting the business I’m most proud of the relationships we’ve built up with many of the couples that we’ve photographed – many of whom I would now call friends. We always feel very lucky when couples choose us to be a part of one the most personal and special days of their lives.  We spend time getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding to ensure they are relaxed on the day, and we get to see things that not even their family and closest friends do.

Many of the relationships we develop don’t end after the wedding day… we are often then asked to capture the weddings of their family and friends too.  We genuinely get to know people and that means they are comfortable around us and let us get the best shots! We often become a ‘photographer for life’ and we get asked to photograph other events such as family parties, christenings or even newborn portraits.

This makes us proud as we get to see the enjoyment people get from our work – not just on the day itself, but over time as they look back too.

Personal message…

Hi, I’m Emma.

I eat, sleep, dream photography!

I love looking at photographs that bring back great memories, and knowing that’s what I do for other people is really rewarding.

If you want to speak with me or would like to see some of my work, then please get in touch… I would love to hear about your plans 🙂

We genuinely get to know people and that means they are comfortable around us and let us get the best shots! We often become a ‘photographer for life’ and we get asked to photograph other events such as family parties, christenings or even newborn portraits. This makes us proud as we get to see the enjoyment people get from our work – not just on the day itself, but over time as they look back too.
