The business of wedding photography can be a long road to nowhere if you don’t start it off on the right track, thats why I decided to put on a wedding seminar at the Forbury Hotel in Reading with the help of Olympus UK and some of my favourite suppliers I use on a day to day basis.

My heart go’s out to wedding planners as I had to plan and put all this together. Managing to secure the venue I also sorted the church, flowers, cake, food for the day along with drinks and prepare a presentation with planing out how the day would run.

The easy part was finding a bride and groom model to use (found them with a bonus they owned their own dress and suite) and how much I could fit in to a day to show.

Not only was Olympus on hand with all the cameras and lenses for everyone to try (not to mention the new 40-150mm f2.8 lens) we also had a list of discount codes from all the other suppliers for everyone that attended, giving them a good head start on the kit they need.

Everyone had the perfect day with amazing images (and one vision offering free prints for everyone with an image of theirs from the day) to having a slice of wedding cake with tea and coffee at the end of the day.

Big thank you to everyone that attended and those also helping out.  A list of the suppliers below.
