With the development of new technology, the way in which we photograph and document our weddings is constantly changing.
The new kid on the block is the DRONE and while this can provide some stunning imagery, there are a lot of things to consider before asking your 12 year old nephew to fly your wedding!
There are a lot of laws governing the use of drones, particularly relevant to public open space, national parks, flying over beaches, crowds and populated areas. I believe that it’s not only the responsibility of the pilot, but also the celebrant to know the rules governing their use.
CASA is the governing body for all things ‘aerial’ in Australia. Familiarise yourselves with the rules, know what licences and permits are required and know the flight restrictions in your area.

Techniques to Reduce Stress and Improve Sleep Prior to Your Big Day
There’s nothing in the world that is quite so stressful as planning a wedding. The process turns normally steadfast, sensible people into blubbering messes or bridezillas regularly. What can you do to make the process of planning your wedding easier in the long run? Sleep well!
A good night's sleep means that you are more tolerant of pain, have a more positive attitude and feel less stressed overall, which makes the planning process a lot easier to handle.
Avoid Electronics in the Evening
You may be tempted to sit in bed and scroll through your Facebook feed, but this is actually really bad for you. Electronics like phone screens and computer screens emit blue spectrum light which tells your brain to pay attention to what you’re looking at. In fact, the older that you get, the less friendly blue light is for your eyes. Because of the yellowing of your eyes, you take in less blue light during the day, which makes it harder for your brain to function the way it needs to. That means that adding intense blue light from your phone or television affects your brain more intensely.
If you need to use your phone, turn on the night mode while you scroll. This will help to limit the effects of the blue light by placing an amber cast over the screen. This makes your brain do a little bit less work and will help you sleep better.
Make Time for Self Care
Often, our society encourages us to hustle and avoid taking time for ourselves. We’re here to tell you to take care of yourself. If you find yourself feeling incredibly stressed about your wedding planning or anything else that you’re dealing with, take some time away from that problem and take care of yourself. This can mean taking a long bath with a bath bomb and a glass of wine or going for a walk with your spouse-to-be. Avoid thinking about it for just a little while and often you will be less stressed at the end of your time away. You might even find the solution to whatever the problem was while you are thinking about other things. Self-care should be an important part of your wedding planning process.
Replace Old Bedding
When was the last time you bought a new pillow? How about a new mattress? Chances are, it’s been a while. You are supposed to be replacing your mattress every 8 years to get the best support possible. You should be replacing your pillows between 6 months and 3 years depending on the type of filling. However, almost nobody does this. If you haven’t changed your bedding for more supportive bedding once in a while, you should do so. Go treat yourself to some really comfortable bedding and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to do so as you snooze the night away.
If you find yourself feeling incredibly stressed and not sleeping well all the time, it may be worth talking to a doctor to see if there is an underlying medical condition or illness causing you trouble.
