WedPics App Featured Wedding Couple: Alison & Mark

Congrats to newlyweds Alison & Mark!  Hear from them on their wedding journey, their experience using WedPics App as well as their one piece of advice for planning a wedding!

1) If you could give one piece advice for future couples planning their wedding, what would that be?

One piece of advice for future bridges and grooms planning their wedding would be to communicate, not only with each other but with family, friends and most importantly suppliers. A lot of people are of the opinion that the wedding day is really the bride’s day, and to be fair I always referred to mine as my ‘Princess Day’, however my ‘Prince’ was involved in all of the important decisions (bridal wear excluded) from start to finish, which meant that when things went wrong we could share the responsibility of dealing with them and share the pressure that such an important event is bound to create. So remember to just communicate.

2) What kind of personal touches did you add to your wedding?

I love poetry and so poem featured quite a lot throughout the day – the invitations had a poem included, the favor boxes had poems included, the ‘Thank you’ cards will include a poem too. Our readings during the ceremony were also poems. To personalize the ceremony I had written a poem for my mum to read just after we said our vows called “Welcome To The Family” and it was all written from her perspective. My husband knew nothing about it. Then during the speeches I challenged the best man to include a limerick, but he blew our socks off with his whole speech being written as a poem. It was amazing!

3) Did you use WedPics for your wedding?  Tell us a little bit about why you chose to use WedPics and how did it work out for you?

 I chose to use Wedpics for our wedding because I have always been of the opinion that a photographer can take a great photograph but some of the best shots are those taken randomly during the course of any event, where people aren’t posing but are just being natural. I knew people would be taking photographs and Wedpics was an easy way to share the photographs that had been taken with all of the guests. It worked really well, although we are still waiting on quite a few people to upload their photographs!

4) If you could choose one, what was your favorite part of the wedding?

My favourite moment from the wedding was when I arrived at the registrars table because I had my dad on one side of me and my future husband the other side of me and they are the 2 most important men in my life. I felt really proud.
