Most photographers nowadays use digital technology to capture your special day, so you will avoid the damaging chemicals used in the development of conventional photographs.

Ask yourself whether you need all or any of your photographs in a physical album. Having them on a USB stick means that you can view them all as and when you wish, and perhaps only print off a select few for you to display. 

Avoid those single-use cameras for guests, since these represent tremendous waste. Instead, why not ask your guests to share their photos on social media or using one of the many dedicated photo sharing apps. That way, you can compile your own album of candid shots in the reportage style so loved by contemporary wedding photographers. 

While having a videographer is an added expense, it’s worth remembering that it’s a perfect way to capture the essence of the occasion. You’ll have a memento of all the little details in sight and sound that you may have missed in the mad whirlwind of the day.

Using professionals local to your venue will minimise the carbon footprint too.
