Wedding Photography by Big Entertainment
Here at Big Entertainment we understand that you want wonderful wedding pictures that reflect the uniqueness of your Wedding Day. The aim is to capture your day on camera as it unfolds with those special moments and exchanges between family and friends. We tailor our photography to suit your requirements, combining a modern relaxed approach with a little touch of tradition. Our photographic style is natural and spontaneous, resulting in a fabulous story-book wedding album. All of our packages include top-quality professional album and the option to personalize it to your own specifications.
We are a friendly, professional, yet approachable service, bringing with us a wealth of knowledge to help your Wedding Day run more smoothly.
All packages include a hard-backed, story-book album, containing the number of professionally printed and retouched images detailed in that package. There is also the option to upgrade your album or to increase the number of images it holds.
All packages include a CD with a number of high-resolution professionally retouched images (images chosen for the album as outlined in the package) copyright-free for you to print as you please. The images will reproduce to a high quality up to 6 by 4 inches, in any high street or online printers.
Our photographic style, unless otherwise requested, is to document your wedding in a candid photojournalistic way blended with the more traditional portrait approach. Our way of working is friendly and unobtrusive.
We aim to make your images available for you to view online two weeks after the event via a password-secured website. Once you have seen the images you can pass the details onto your family and friends, and if they would like to buy any, they can do so straight from the website. This will remove the need for you to be personally involved in the ordering of images, other than your own.
Wedding Photography Prices 2011 - 2012
Silver - 650 ( 2012 - 695 )
We will attend the ceremony venue in good time to photograph the Groom meeting guests. We will take relaxed and informal shots at this stage before the arrival of the Bridesmaids and the Bride, then time allowing, we will photograph the Bridal Party before they enter the ceremony venue. We will then capture the ceremony and the signing of the register under the direction of the Celebrant.
N.B. It is important to check with the Celebrant well in advance of the Wedding Day, what they are comfortable with in terms of photographs being taken. Most Celebrants are welcoming but some have very strict guidelines as to what a photographer can do during the service, and some allow almost no coverage at all.
After the ceremony we will continue with the mixture of relaxed and more traditional styles capturing the Bride & Groom leaving the venue and then onto the group shots. Where permitted we will take pictures of the confetti being thrown and any other shots you have asked for beforehand, which I refer to as the Must Have Shots. We aim to have these shots completed within thirty minutes, however this is dependent upon the weather and your own schedule restrictions that may need to be kept to.
If the weather conditions are not conducive to outdoor shots,we may need to use the best available space we have to work with indoors. Often the main images to be used in your album will come from this more formal part of the day.
We will then go on to attend the reception venue where we will continue with the candid style of photography and include a romantic portrait-styled session with the Bride & Groom. We will take staged shots of the cake cutting and pictures with the wedding car if desired. Then by the time you sit down to your Wedding Breakfast, you will be able to relax, safe in the knowledge that your memories have been captured.
