What Makes a Good Wedding Photographer? Skills, Locations and People
Devon is one of the most picturesque and idyllic counties in England and is becoming increasingly popular with couples who are searching for that little extra something for the wedding-day location. North Devon and South Devon is host to a whole host of fantastic locations; gripping scenery, welcoming venues and that special Devonshire hospitality that Devonians are famous for. Whatever you are looking for; something old, something new, something borrowed or something blue: it’s important that your wedding photographer knows how to capture everything that makes your wedding day an event to remember forever.
Wedding photography is not simply about photographing a wedding day, it is much more. Having an experienced wedding photographer who knows their trade is a wholly greater advantage. The ability to communicate to others and carry out your wishes for your wedding day whilst making people feel relaxed is paramount. Successful snappers often talk with those they are picturing, distracting their attention away from the camera and making them feel inconspicuous, whilst having them remain centre stage. Although some shots need to be professionally composed, it is important to capture them as quickly as possible to allow for a non-hectic day. Being able to organise up to hundreds of people without appearing too forthright is very important. After all, people are there to enjoy themselves and your special day.
It is well known that North Devon and South Devon have some of the most fantastic locations for your wedding. You should feel confident that your camera man is capable of capturing everything that makes that location special. It could be the vintage style of Umberleigh or the crystal waters of Woolacombe Bay; the majestic South Hams Countryside or the luxurious Tunnels Beaches: whatever the reason you have chosen the location, your photographer should be able to take your ideas and transfer them perfectly to print.

BRIDES TRY ON UP TO 20 DRESSES!
It’s important to think long and hard about decisions relating to your wedding, whether it be your wedding photographer (such as Matthew Sims), your theme, the colours, the food and, most critically, the dress.
And it seems that women are certainly of this view, with new research showing that they try on up to 20 wedding dresses before finding that one very special one that they can’t wait to walk down the aisle in, and just 9% of those asked in the Promotional Codes study saying they only had to try on five dresses before they picked out a favourite.
While 20 dresses might seem like a lot to try on, it is important to make sure you find a gown that is particularly well suited to your body type. If you’re something of a pear shape, look for a skirt with a gradual flare from the waist to the floor, which will draw attention away from the thighs. For women with a larger bust, it might be a better idea to go for a scooped neckline as this won’t show too much cleavage and will lighten up your face. Also avoid ruched fabric or anything with a sheen to it as this could draw attention to your chest.
For tall brides, a silhouette dress is a great option, as it will help emphasise your shape. Try to avoid anything too fussy and over-embellished and keep your dress as simple as possible, without being too boring – you’re sure to get lots of compliments if you do!
