I have got to start this blog post off by saying NEVER have I ever been to a wedding where people have danced as much as as they did at Kathrin and Ajay’s wedding at Hackney Town Hall! And you know it was not just ooooooh, hands in the air dancing just because, it was full on mini battles, sing offs, lots of picking up, confetti cannons exploding, tie round peoples heads type dancing and I LOVED IT. But back tracking a little first….
Here is what they had to say:
How did you spend / allocate your budget? That was quite hard. We didn’t realise how expensive it was. It was only after talking to wedding planners that we realised it would cost us more than we thought. They also helped us budget what we wanted and be realistic with us.
How/Why did you choose your photographer? We both knew we wanted a photographer who didn’t take posed photos. Someone who shot the day as it happened. Only after speaking with Alex (The Bijou Bride) did we realise there was a name for that style – Reportage. She gave us a list of photographers and we met them all. Kirsty really stood out. Her website was great and the photo’s looked cool, not posed, very ‘in the moment’. Speaking with her over video conference, she was infectiously happy, as if it was her getting married! She ticked all the boxes, and having just seen our wedding photo’s, it was one of the best decisions we made.
What was your biggest surprise of the day? How much we would dance. A good few pounds were lost on that dance floor.
