We ask Yorkshire wedding photogrpher Charlotte Elizabeth Photography your burning question...
"My partner and I are nervous about being in front of the camera. What tips do you have to help us relax on the day?"
The biggest tip I can give any couple is to make sure you're comfortable with your photographer. If you don't feel at ease with them, it'll show in your photos. You need to totally trust your photographer – and all of your suppliers. Spend time with them and get to know the person behind the camera. Doing this will help you relax with them and make you less nervous on the day.
Most professionals will offer a pre-wedding or engagement session. Use this opportunity to ask any questions and practice any poses that you're concerned about. On the day, make sure you allow enough time for your photos. Your chosen expert will take control of the group shots and couple's portraits, but you don't want to feel rushed. Having enough time to top up your lipstick, fix your hair, straighten cufflinks and fasten waistcoats can make all the difference.
Finally, remember that you've just married the love of your life. No matter how you feel in the run-up to the day, when you're standing together as newlyweds, nothing can burst your bubble.
