What is the Sessions Shoot included in the package?
It’s a very informal and fun shoot in an area discussed on your appointment, which, by the end of it, you will be relaxed in front of the camera and will have learned how best to photograph you on your wedding day.
It’s imperative for anyone who is nervous about being photographed, as once you have seen the results from that shoot you will have no fears or worries left about the photography part of your wedding day.
How long will Alexander Weddings stay with us on our wedding day?
The majority of our weddings are full day events, starting usually from 9am in the morning to after the first dance. Ivan may meet up with the groom first (if agreed) then meet with the bride a couple of hours before she leaves for the ceremony.

We will pay for all travelling and overnight expenses in Northern Ireland.
We cover weddings anywhere in the world and do our best to keep any additional travel expenses to a minimum for clients.
How many photographs will Alexander Weddings take?
We have no fixed number; we will often take 2000+ photographs at a wedding.
The quantity taken is depended upon many factors, e.g. the number of locations throughout the day and the amount of available time between the ceremony and the first dance.
Do Alexander Weddings take formal groups as well as candid reportage photos?
Of course! We Like to limit group photographs to a maximum of 20 minutes and will work to a pre-arranged list. We will ask your ushers/chief bridesmaid to help gather the necessary guests and the more organised you are about this, the quicker it will be.
What do Alexander Weddings do about eating on the day?
As we will be with you all day, we are normally invited to eat the same meal as your guests or a service meal.
