Welcome The Cooknells
I can’t wait to shoot your wedding at Dodford manor on 20-Apr-2023
Thank you for paying your retainer fee of £300
Your total Package cost is £1260 (£1400 – 10%) so £960 is due on 04/04/2023
What Happens Next?
28 days before your wedding you’ll be sent a link to fill in the final details of your wedding, this includes group shot requests and address details.
14 days before your wedding you’ll be sent a payment remind and a request for a phone call (to go over the details submitted in the previous email)
If you have any questions/want to chat then get in touch with me on 07794050916 or via the contact page. If you’ve booked a package with a pre wedding meet up then get in touch and let me know what dates work for you. The meet up ideally needs to be within 2 months of your wedding date.
FAQ’S & Advice
The final balance can be paid by BACS, I have purposely not added the BACS info on here as couples quite often book well in advance so details may change. Please contact me whenever you’d like to make a payment.
You can pay in installations, whatever works best for you. Use your wedding date as a reference (and surname if it will fit)
Most of my photography is documentary so on your wedding day please try and ignore the camera. This something we’ll definitely chat about so don’t worry, it’s all good!
Call or message me at any time, honestly whenever is fine. I may be at a wedding but I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
I never ask couples to provide me with food, it’s usually included with the package you booked and if that’s the case I’ll gladly accept, however if they want to charge you a crazy amount for me to eat then please decline and I will sort my own lunch.
I make lots of contacts within the industry, below is a list of people I recommend because I’ve worked with them and they did a great job. If you’re booking a service/supplier and are not too sure what you’re looking for please feel free to give me a shout I may be able to give you a few pointers
STUFF PEOPLE WON’T TELL YOU
Did you know you can have a personalised snap chat filter for your wedding? Just go to Snapchat’s website it works via location and date
Nobody will tell you to take your flowers out of their water 30 minutes before the wedding. It’s not usually a problem for the bride as the drips won’t really show on her dress but it will on the bridesmaids
Bring your own bluetooth speaker, the ones at the venue don’t always work
If you have an iPhone then don’t forget that they don’t have a headphone socket, so if you’re planning on using your music in the ceremony/drinks reception bring the adapter
If your day is running behind schedule then we can use some of the time planned for the drinks reception/photos to bring your day back to schedule. I love shooting relaxed but if we need to get a move on with the group shots then I will get it done asap
No one brings confetti to a wedding anymore, maybe a few of the older relatives. If you want confetti at your wedding then you need to provide it
I love shooting couples under the stars, it makes for awesome photos. A lot of my couples really want these photos but I would say a good half of them don’t want to drag themselves from their reception and that’s totally fine. I’ll ask you a few time through the evening and if it’s not the right time then that’s all good!
If you want sparklers at your wedding reception let me know and we can chat about the best way of doing it
