What is your favourite thing about working with Brides to Be as a Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer?
I have always loved working with Brides to Be because of their sheer excitement about planning the biggest day of their lives. With their fresh enthusiasm, they are always full of ideas of how to make their wedding day personal to them. Every day is different working as a Wedding Photographer and Brides to Be make the job a pleasure to do.
What inspires you in your work?
The force that drives me in my work is to make sure all of my customer’s expectations are exceeded. Their happiness is my goal, so my inspiration comes from the Bride and Groom themselves, as they explain their hopes, ideas and the desired outcome of their Wedding Day.
What has been your favourite wedding that you have worked on?
I can’t say I have a favourite, as everyone’s Big Day is as individual and different as each couple, with so many wonderful elements. One wedding that sticks out in my mind was one held in the summer of 2013 at Mount Stewart, it was such a beautiful setting and the atmosphere was brilliant with a huge tipi set up on the lawns, a band playing and a champagne drinks reception. It was the whole setting that made it a memorable success.
Do you have any wedding trend predictions for weddings for 2014?
I think more and more Brides and Grooms are bargain hunting when it comes to booking suppliers for their Wedding Day because of the financial climate that we currently live in. I believe this will happen even more so in 2014. I feel that I offer packages that cater extremely well to those that are seeking better value for their money. Some would think that the less you pay, you are more likely to get bad service and an even worse product. All you have to do is look at my work and realise that with booking with Whiteline Photography this is certainly not the case.
What would be your top tip to share with Brides to Be?
A big tip for Brides to Be is to relax. I meet so many brides who are stressed out from all the preparation and planning that they forget to enjoy the most important day of their lives. The whole day goes so fast, so it is important to take time and enjoy everything that is going on around you.
When you’re not busy working as a Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer at Whiteline Photography what is your favourite pastime?
I love walking and swimming, but I am getting married myself this August, so any spare time I have is being spent organising my own Big Day. It is a great experience knowing exactly what all my Brides to Be are going through, so I certainly have a bit more knowledge of what is involved in the whole planning process. It is also brilliant passing on tips and recommendations and vice versa.
Lovely chatting with you Anne and look forward to showing off some of the lovely weddings that you have shot on these pages soon!
