Talk to your photog and see what they say…they are the professionals and will know how long. I would guess a first look would be no more then 25 minutes. We had time after our ceremony- about an hour it took for pics, before we moved onto our reception. We took pics witha  vintage car at the ceremony site. Once we got to the reception place0 we took pics for no more than an hour and a half…these included all our parent/grandparents/bridal party pics, and once with just the two us.

Good luck!

The last wedding I went to it took the bride and groom 3 hours to do photos on site. It was so rediculous we ended up serving all the guests dinner while the bride and groom where gone. A good photographer would never take that long however.

I allowed for 2 hours before the ceremony.  Thankfully i did because we ran 45 minutes behind (and I’m NEVER late in every day life), but you can NEVER predict correctly how long everything is going to take that day.  I had a very strict timeline and it went out the window after a certain amount of time.

If you’re not doing a first look I would allow for at least an hour and a half.

ask your photographer. We did a session before and after ceremony. Before and after were both about an hour.

@Au Jardin:  Good the bride at this wedding flipped out when she was the one to tell us when to serve people. As you long as your not out smoking a joint in the woods youll be good im sure.
