The Small Wedding
Hamilton Portrait and Wedding Photographer | Oz Photography
In these times many couples are choosing to forgo the medium to large weddings. There are many reasons why this is so. One of the biggest reasons is cost. A recent BMO study found the typical wedding costs any where between $18,000 and $22,000 and even higher in some cases. The second reason is effort and there is a enormous effort in organizing your wedding, unless you are fortunate enough to hire a wedding planner. I have spoken to many couples and they prefer to put the extra finances needed for a wedding into either the honeymoon and/or real estate.
However they still plan to have a wedding just a less costlier one. Typical weddings start at 8 hours and can reach up to 12 hours in length. The fact is there is more weddings now in the 4 to 6 hour range and even weddings at 2 hours in duration. Some venues are offering discounts if the wedding is booked on a Friday or Sunday and I have received more bookings in this regard. Other venues such as a backyard or a restaurant setting are becoming more popular for smaller weddings.
Oz Photography however, does value the smaller wedding and we can offer an hourly rate or custom packages which can includes prints, canvas gallery wraps, albums, slideshows etc. We would be pleased to provide you with a quote regardless of the size of your wedding. We value you as a client in any situation and will provide the best professional photography services you deserve.
