Please use this questionnaire to tell us about your day, in as much detail as you can. I understand that some of these questions may not directly pertain to your day, but they will help me to plan my day for the events of your wedding.
This will help me be in the right place at the right time. The more I know in advance, the better! Please fill out as thoroughly as you can. Bride Morning Prep: What time will you be getting ready? What time are you leaving to ceremony venue? (If different than where you are getting ready) Anything else I might need to know about the morning? Groom Morning Prep: What time will you be getting ready? What time are you leaving to ceremony venue? (If different than where you are getting ready) Anything else I might need to know about the morning? The Wedding Ceremony:
Is your ceremony indoors or outdoors? (Weather permitting)
What time is your ceremony going to start? Are there any readings or songs being sung or anything else during your ceremony? (Sand ceremony, knot tying, unity candle, etc.) Any restrictions/anything else I need to be aware of during/for the ceremony? The Reception: What are the plans/timing for the reception? What time are things happening -eating speeches/toasts, etc.? Do you have any specific events or surprises planned that I might need to know about ahead of time? (ex. cake cutting, first dances, any games like shoe game or trivia, etc.) If so, please list with detail. Photos: Group photo list Designated photo helper Please list any group photos you would like to get here, just keep in mind that even with the best ushering, it can still take anywhere from 5-10 minutes to get everyone brought over and arranged for a photo. So best to keep that and time constraints in mind when making this list. I will do my very best to capture all that you list , with the time given. It is often very helpful to designate a friend/usher/bridesmaid/ groomsmen (or 2) to help arrange and corral the people needed for group photos listed above, and help move people along. Ideally this person is someone in the bride/groom party who knows the key people or family members that are happy to shout and organize. What time do you want photography coverage to start? Keep in mind once started it will continue consecutively until package hours are met. Other notes: It is generally best to get as many photos out of the way before your ceremony as possible, this helps for after your ceremony your guests are not waiting too long between the end of your ceremony and beginning of the meal if you’re serving one or the next event of the night. This can still be done if the goal is for the bride and groom not to see each other before the ceremony. If you have a special photo you have seen elsewhere or have thought of please feel free to let me know and I will do my best to accommodate. I will do my best to make it look similar to what you have seen or are imagining, but I cannot promise it to be exact. Following your wedding day, I will get to work on going through photos from the day along with editing them. Once I have several photos complete, I will post sneak peeks on my Facebook page @Mericle Photography. Please feel free to give us a “like” and share our page with your friends and family, as well as your sneak peeks when they post. My clients are the best way to spread my name, and I appreciate every share I receive. Thank you for helping promote my small business. I will also do my best to tag you in the post, but sometimes my business page does not bring everyone's names up. After your pictures are edited and complete you will receive an email linking you to your online gallery for your viewing. You receive rights to the images you receive to print them and share as you like. We do sell prints that are from a trusted printer of ours that the quality of prints is better than what you can get from local stores. You can purchase prints from us directly through your gallery as well. It is totally up to you on where you decide to print your photos. If you have anything else I should know about your wedding day, that is not included in this form, please feel free to send me an email, call, or message me on Facebook and I will get back to you.
