Are you ready to tie the knot?

If you’re planning to tie the knot soon, then it can be an exciting time in your life, but you’ll also be keen to make it as perfect as possible. Wedding planning, whether you plan on doing it all yourself, or you intend on enlisting outside help, can often be a bit of a stressful time, but some careful thought can make it a much more enjoyable process. Here are a few things to keep in mind when starting to plan your big day.

Think about what kind of wedding you want to have

First things first, before you start choosing venues or looking for the right caterer, it’s important to know the kind of wedding you hope to have. Whether you choose to have something intimate, a more formal occasion, or a grand celebration with all your friends and family, this will influence and shape all of your decisions further down the line.

If you’re looking for a spot with both convenience and style near Adelaide, then a beautiful wedding Hahndorf venue can be a great choice, being just a short drive from the city, but with plenty of comfort and a great atmosphere.

Take the weather into account

It’s easy to imagine perfect weather conditions when you’re busy planning your wedding day a year or more in advance, but it’s always a good idea to consider adverse weather conditions.

Even if you are not planning a completely outdoors wedding, most people will have to deal with the climate on the day to some extent, whether it is battling the wind against your veil, or trying not to get too sweaty in your suit on a hot day. So, keep a backup plan in case the weather doesn’t give you what you hoped for, and you can enjoy anything that happens without being fazed.

Choose the right kind of photographer

Your wedding photographer will play an enormously important role – after all, their job is to capture the big day so that you can remember it all for the rest of your life. Before you choose to assign the task to a photographer, it is important to check them out first and make sure that you feel confident with their work and approach.

Look at previous wedding shots, to make sure they deliver the kind of style of photos you want. If your wedding has elements that are important to you, ensure that your photographer understands these, so that they do not inadvertently ignore them. Lastly, be completely clear and transparent about what you will receive for their agreed fee – with the majority of photographers shooting digitally, most families will receive digital files only. If you are hoping to have prints or a wedding book, this may need to be arranged separately.


By taking care of some of the essential background basics for your special day, you can start to relax, and start enjoying all of the fun around it.
