Nottingham Wedding Photographer - Martelle Photography | A Full Day

Your wedding day photography lasts for up to 10 hours but we put in a lot more hours afterwards in the professional enhancement of all your images.  We usually start with whats known as the Bridal Preparations or 'Bridal preps' for short. This is our chance to capture some great shots of your dress, shoes, jewellery and bouquet.  It is also a great opportunity foe us to take a few of the bride finishing off her makeup and generally catch happy moments of the bridal party enjoying the days beginnings.

We like to arrive at your chosen wedding ceremony venue about an hour before your wedding so we can spend a bit of time with the Groom and his Best man as well as capture shots of your guests arriving.   If your wedding is in a Church it is very important that you have confirmed that the vicar will allow photographers to take photos during the ceremony.  

After the ceremony we let you enjoy the warmth of your guests as they congratulate you before we look at trying to take a few group/formal shots.  We ask that you allow a 45 minutes period for this so we can capture those group shots you want.  We also look at taking the newlyweds off for a private shoot for about 20 minutes.  It is during this period we are able to creatively capture some of the more personal and romantic images.

After this we may grab a bite to eat whilst we further capture images of your guests, the cake the table decorations and embellishments, the speeches, cake cutting, throwing of the bouquet, throwing of the garter and of course the first dance.  We also, if we have time, prepare a small DVD slideshow of your day so your evening guests can see some lovely images.for 

If we have been booked for a photo booth then we set that up and let you guests unleash their fun and madness in that whilst capturing it in camera.  These photos are not include in your main images folder but are included in the package.

We like to have a glass of beer or wine with you before we depart which is when the hard work for us really begins.  See our page on post processing to discover what happens to your images once we leave you.
