You've booked! Hurrah! This is so. flipping. exciting.
During the planning process it's really important to me to get to know my couples. I often find that guests on the day assume that I'm a friend of the couple and I always take it as a wonderful compliment. Meeting isn't always possible, but if you're able to come to me on a weekday then I'd love to see you face to face, and I can even bring my camera along - contact me for pricing for an engagement shoot. If we can't meet in person don't worry - we can chat on the phone or Skype to put you at ease.
I'd love to know what you're excited about for your day and how the plans are coming together. If you have photos of bits and pieces coming together, your favourite thing about your venue, details you love then send them over to me! Some couples send over spare invites for me to see which I absolutely love - I have quite a collection now.
Two weeks before your wedding your balance is due, which can be paid by bank transfer. Just pop me an email if you need a reminder about how much that is or how to pay. Around this time I will also send you a final detail form, which includes a run down of timings on the day, locations, a list of suppliers, your list of group shots and a few other bits and pieces. So, don't worry if any of the details on your booking form change over time.
