Morning after photo session
Nothing captures special moments, big and small, like a photo and needless to say, a wedding photographer is an absolute must, but is this intimate photography trend going a bit too far? The “Morning After” photo session captures the bride and groom’s first morning together as husband and wife and it’s a bit on the naughty side. While many couples might think the morning after their wedding is a very private, intimate time, many are inviting photographers into the bedroom to capture the scene. What do you think?
Getting married in a new destination or at an unfamiliar resort can sometimes increase stress levels. And although your DestinationVows Specialists assures couples they are very familiar with the resort and destination, there is something to be said about experiencing it for yourself. We encourage our couples to get a ‘sneak peek’ at their wedding resort and destination with a short 3-or 4-night stay. These quickie getaways allow couples the chance to get to know their wedding resort, meet with the wedding co-ordinator and see the ceremony location. Then, should anything not be as they thought, last minute changes can be made to ensure the wedding day is as perfect as possible.
All in one locale
The Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas, together with a selection of the world’s elite couture and luxury brands, has recently announced their Ultimate Luxury Wedding Package. It includes everything a bride and groom could ever want to ensure a picture-perfect day. Before the wedding, the bride is treated to a private dress consultation at Lanvin, followed by bridal shoe selection at Jimmy Choo, and a diamond pendant from Harry Winston. On the wedding day, the couple, witnessed by up to 200 friends and family, will exchange vows at the Mandarin Oriental and toast with their new Baccarat champagne glasses. Following the wedding, the bride and groom will enjoy a luxurious honeymoon for seven nights at any Mandarin Oriental hotel of their choice. It’s an all-encompassing packages that makes planning a luxurious wedding in Sin City – oh so indulgent.

The popularity of cruise vacations has also opened up the opportunity for couples to hop off, get married, then hop back on for the honeymoon. Imagine the wedding of your dreams in locations like the rolling Tuscan countryside, picturesque Lake Como or the ever popular Portofino region, commonly known as the Italian Riviera.
