This week I've been updating my little white book. I've added the contact details of top wedding photographer Julia Boggio, who kindly supplied me with beautiful photographs for the upcoming issue. I just love her style. Forget stiff formal photographs, she will capture you looking relaxed and at your best, with a hint of red carpet pizazz. For examples of her quirky style, check out her website www.juliaboggiophotography.com. I have a feeling it'll make you re-think the way you want to record your Big Day! Julia also specialises in engagement photoshoots, a US trend that is making its way over to the UK.
If you're looking to film your wedding day, then my second hot new contact - the Dreamcatchers www.thedreamcatchers.co.uk - is worth scribbling down. They film 'documentary-style' and use neat digital handheld cameras, so they're uber-discreet. You'll get beautiful footage and won't have to worry about the photographer obscuring the view for your guests. After the wedding, they will edit the film and add your favourite background music to create a special record of your day.
Once your wedding has been and gone, the wedding DVD will arrive (which I guarantee you will watch over and over again) as will the pile of wedding photos. It's all too tempting to frame your favourites, pop the rest in a shoebox and forget about them. To avoid this, why not put a beautiful photo album on your gift list? Smythson is THE place to go for a special leather bound album and they can even personalise it with your initials, which is a lovely touch www.smythson.com. For something a little bit different, but super-stylish, transform your best wedding photos into works of art by logging onto www.photobox.co.uk and order some photo canvases. Display together on a wall in your home for a modern momento of your day.
