What is a Wedding Consultation?

What is a wedding consultation, photography consultation, pre-wedding meeting, shropshire, wedding photographer, photography. professional, experienced,

At Notton House Photography, we offer a complimentary wedding consultation to every Bride and Groom who enquires with us.  Our wedding consultations are without any obligation and 100% free.  A Wedding Consultation is what we call it but other names are a Pre-Wedding Meeting, Wedding Consult or a Photography Consultation.  They are all the same thing!

So why do you need a Wedding Consultation?

As professional wedding photographers based in Telford, Shropshire, we want to ensure that your wedding goes without a hitch.  Your wedding consultation is the first step in achieving this.

From the first time you contact us to see if we are available for your wedding, we start the process.  We want to meet with you, get to know you both and discuss your wedding with you.

How do I book a Wedding Consultation?

I'm glad you asked!  When you first reach out to Notton House Photography, you'll be able to choose a time and date that works for you to come to meet with us at our studio in Lawley Village, Telford.

You choose the best time for your wedding consultation via a link we'll send you via email, or if we're on the phone, I'll let you know the next dates we have available.

You'll also receive an email reminder about your appointment time and date a couple of days before hand (we know you have a lot on your plate at the moment!)

What happens at my Wedding Consultation?

As the lead photographer at Notton House Photography, I meet with all my clients face to face.  Whether you choose to have 1 or 2 wedding photographers for your big day is entirely up to you.  As I will be your main photographer it's important to us both that we meet and get to know each other!  If you decide on having additional photographers with us, you'll meet them a little closer to the day itself.

When you arrive at our studio for your wedding consultation sit down to chat about your wedding day.  I love to find out all the exciting things you have planned like your themes, colour schemes, venues and anything else you want to tell me about!  Your wedding is completely unique to you and I love to hear all your fabulous ideas!  (You'll notice that I get super excited for you!)

After we've chatted about the big day, I'll ask you a few basic questions regarding your likes and dislikes.  This is a great time to tell me if you love black & white shots, if you love lots of natural candid moments captured (the photos that you don't realise are being taken!) and if you would like a selection of posed family or group photographs too.  We can also discuss ideas you have regarding your couple’s portraits, ie. special locations, sunset photographs, a grand exit with sparklers etc.

Can I view your work and sample wedding albums at my Wedding Consultation?

You'll see a selection of beautiful wedding albums that we offer at your wedding consultation.  Wedding albums are one of the most beautiful and special parts of your wedding photography, so all our collections come with one.  Your album will become your first family heirloom, it will outlive you and be passed on for generations to come.  That's amazing, right?!  You'll have the opportunity to see our stunning wedding albums and choose which one is best for you.  I know you'll fall in love with them as much as I have!

At your wedding consultation, you'll look through these beautiful albums and see close-up my style of wedding photography.  I love both candid and posed photographs that document your wedding day to give you beautiful art to display at home.  I have stunning wall art on the walls that I'll show you too!

We'll go through my wedding collections together and I'll explain what you receive in each package.  You can ask any questions you like!  The aim here is to choose a collection that is perfect for your requirements.  My Gold Label wedding collection literally has EVERYTHING you could ever ask for including several photo sessions, my Client for Life programme, wedding slideshow and much more!  But I digress!

Will we talk about money at my Wedding Consultation?

You may be wondering about payment too, so I'll talk you through your options at your wedding consultation too.  I offer payment plans to make things simple and require a £400 booking fee to keep your wedding date safe!  Once that booking fee is paid, your wedding contract signed, I'm officially your wedding photographer and you can breathe a sigh of relief!  That's another massive item ticked off your list with a great big smiley face next to it 😊

Soon after your wedding consultation you'll receive an email to confirm your wedding booking with me and talk about the next steps.  If you hadn't booked me for your wedding at your wedding consultation, now is the time to do it!  I get booked 1-2 years in advance so if you want me to photograph your wedding, you'll need to move quickly!  Remember if you have any questions at any time, I'm always on hand to help!

So that's about it!  I hope that has helped to explain exactly what a Wedding Consultation is and why you need one!  If you'd like to book your wedding consultation in with me, please give me a call on 01952 501965 or you can choose your date & time for your appointment right here!
