I have to say, I am very nervous about timing for our wedding photos and our wedding in general. My FI and I are having a luncheon after our ceremony instead of a reception so the timing is considerably different.
We have two choices, get married at 11am or get married at 1pm. Regardless we have to be finished in our hall by four because there is a catholic mass above us at five. We have tentativly decided to get married at one so we have more time to get ready for the wedding. Our photographer will arrive at our houses an hour before the wedding (half an hour with me/half an hour with groom) then she will photograph our hour long ceremony, then she will take a break while we have our luncheon (because the luncheon will only be about an hour and a half if the guests get down to the hall about 2-2:30ish and leave at 4) and then she will spend 30 minutes taking photos with the families, 30 minutes taking photos with the bridal party and an hour taking photos of my FI and I in a location of our choice. The only crappy part is, we cant take the group photos at the church because we only would have such a short time if we got married at one and I dont want church guests or wedding guests disrupting the process. We are paying 3,100 for the most amazing photographer for four hours.
Does four hours seem like enough time? What timeline should I go with! I need help! We are making this a smaller affair because we are paying for the wedding by ourselves and decided to spend most of our money on an awesome honeymoon. We are afraid if we making the wedding at 11 than the guests will need lots of stuff to do between 12 and 4, what do you suggest!
please please help!
