Wedding Day Timeline Tips For A Relaxed Day

I can help create a draft wedding day timeline so you feel relaxed, can enjoy each moment and have fun throughout the day.

As a guide I recommend allowing the time below for each part of the day (travel time to locations not included).

Getting Ready

1.5-2 hours Each

You can be photographed getting ready with your partner, separately or not at all. You do you! It's a great time to capture the anticipation and excitement before you walk down the aisle with your family and friends.

Pre-Ceremony

30 Minutes prior

I arrive 30 minutes before the ceremony starts to allow for parking, photographing the ceremony set-up, guests arriving and your partner waiting.

Ceremony

30-45 minutes

Most wedding ceremonies are 30 minutes long and will often start a tad late because getting 100 people to be on time is a big task. Your celebrant will let you know exactly how long is needed for what you'd like to include.

Congratulations

30 Minutes

Remember to allow time for guests to congratulate you after the ceremony. Some of the most beautiful, real moments happen during hugs and kisses from your loved ones.
