Very excited! This Sunday (the 1st March) I’ll be exhibiting at my first wedding fair…in all honesty I’m a little nervous, most through not being sure what to expect; however I am looking forward to meeting and chatting to lots of lovely couples looking to get married.
I’ve got everything ready: new series of portfolio albums, new complete sample albums, promotional leaflets, business cards, 2m high roller banner, display easels, iPad slideshow…I’ve even got some free chocolates for couples to help themselves to while they check out my portfolio of images.
The fair takes place between 12pm and 3pm at Preston Hall in Eaglescliffe and is organised by Tees Valley Weddings (www.teesvalleyweddings.co.uk), so there’ll be plenty of other suppliers on show.
Preston Hall is a place which has special meaning to me since it’s where I married my lovely wife all those years ago; despite it being a wet and cold November afternoon, everyone had a good time – which was the idea really.
Having a stall at a wedding fair gives me a chance to press-the-flesh (so to speak) with couples looking to get married; not only will it allow them to see the physical output from my wedding photography, more importantly it will let them have a chance to meet me and get a feel for whether I’m the photographer for them.
So if you’re looking into your wedding photographer (or a supplier for any other element of the wedding day) pop along and see what’s on offer.
