Gay Wedding Photography

You will not be left short of choice in choosing a gay wedding photographer as this is an extremely competitive market however we would advise that you choose your photographer carefully. Personal recommendations or testimonials are always a good way to make an informed choice; after all you are placing your trust in this person to encapsulate the memories of your special day for you, your friends and family to reflect on for years to come.

We recommend you choose a professional photographer with experience of gay weddings, try not to be tempted to cut costs and opt for an amateur as it's impossible to re-take your wedding photographs if you are not happy with them. A professional photographer will have experience of dealing with the emotion and stress of the day and can deal with tricky family situations. Ideally you want a photographer with great technical skills to bring out the best in the quality of your photo's but also someone who is creative and can capture a special moment. When deciding on your photographer be sure that they have a good attitude and come across like they are excited to work with you on your wedding day.

Packages will vary greatly in both cost and content. You can be photographed from early in the day getting ready with your wedding party until late in the reception celebrating with your guests so be sure to confirm the content you are paying for and enjoy the task of deciding from an unlimited number of shots which photographs you and your partner wish to keep.

After your big day has been and gone your wedding photo’s will be a treasured reminder of your wedding so it really is important that you choose a good wedding photographer.

A professional wedding photographer will capture special moments and background events that you may not notice on the day as you will be so busy. Capturing spontaneous events is what photographers are good at, and those moments are so special you will want to make sure you can record them.

There are lots of specialist gay wedding photographers who are experienced and comfortable with gay weddings and they will make you and your guests feel really special on the day. On the flip side there are lots of brilliant wedding photographers who may not have worked at a gay wedding before but they will produce great wedding photos and do a good job.

Asking a friend to take your photos is never a good idea. Friends are often too busy watching what’s going on to capture those special moments on camera. The last thing you want is to be left with wedding photos with heads chopped off, a blurred image or even a lost camera if your friend gets too drunk by the end of the night.

Gay Marriage Facts

Gay and lesbian members of society have fought hard for the right to marry and we continue to fight for equality with heterosexual marriage laws. It’s great that gay relationships can be recognised and celebrated and having a gay wedding is an excellent way to show family, friends, colleagues and the general public that gay and lesbian men and women want to commit to long lasting, loving, stable relationships and be seen as good role models in society.

Gay marriage laws all over the world are constantly being reviewed, renewed and in some cases nullified. The more we can set a positive example in countries where gay marriage is legal and campaign for equality in those places where gay marriage is not accepted, the more we can influence together, how other nations perceive gay and lesbian commitments.

We are enjoying gay marriage in several formats across the world from civil partnerships to civil unions and full gay marriage. We will continue to fight for full equality in those countries and lead by example so other countries will follow and introduce gay marriage laws.

There are now a great range of stationary products available for same-sex couples so everything from your invitations to the order of service or menu can be individually designed to compliment your chosen theme.

So, with your guest list agreed you should aim to get your wedding invitations sent out around 3 months before your big day. You should always purchase more stationary than you need in case you make a mistake on them. Make sure your invites include details of directions to your wedding venue, hotels where your guests can stay and local taxi numbers. If you are expecting a certain dress code then ensure you make this clear on your invite – don’t leave it to word of mouth.
