Wedding planner Jenny Wren takes flight
Highly regarded Wedding Planner Jennifer Wren marries her beau, Damian Granlund
Planning your wedding can be overwhelming, especially when thoughts turn to the little things as well as the big things. If you have ever wondered ‘how a wedding planner would do it?’ read on …
Jenny & Damian married on the 13th of May 2017. After discussions with various wedding magazines and bloggers over the following months, we are so very excited to finally be able to share our images with you.
With so many couples having enjoyed being well looked after by our bride Jenny Wren and her team, her very own wedding day became a reality when Damian popped the question. On arriving at the picturesque beach destination of Mirissa, Sri Lanka Damian knew that this was ‘the spot’. In front of a backdrop of turquoise waters and a white sandy beach, the lives of this beautiful couple changed forever.
‘With your wedding planning skills, you’ll have a fantastic take on it as you work creatively rather than just ticking things off a to do list’ said wedding blogger Donna Sharpe of Pasties and Petticoats. With a head full of styling ideas and practical, organisational thoughts for her own big day, the scene was set and the ultimate wedding planner’s wedding planning got underway.
Jenny & Damian had been together for 3 ½ years before they married this summer. They met while Jenny was working at wedding venue, Gwel-an-Mor here in Cornwall. Damian joined the functions team for the summer before starting his job as an engineer that autumn.
The converted 19th century stone built Mill Barn at Launcells Barton that Jenny & Damian chose for their own wedding, with exposed beams and French doors would be where they would say their vows. They loved the idea of doing this in such an old building, full of stories and memories.
Having enjoyed wedding dress shopping with Mum and bridesmaids, had consultations with her chosen florists, cake baker and alike, the reality of the day itself was fast approaching.
We were delighted to have been asked by Jenny & Damian to photograph their wedding day. As friends, we have always enjoyed each other’s company so to be their chosen photographers meant a great deal. We understand that for some couples, photography is one of their very top priorities. Images of family, friends and all of the details that makes each wedding so unique will be viewed over and over and the opportunity of creating beautiful framed prints, albums and gifts all spill out from the portfolio captured on the day.
“We are over the moon to confirm our booking with Exposure and look forward to having them tell the story of our day”.
Jenny shares her thoughts about why she chose Exposure Photo Agency for her own wedding day:
“After the cake has been eaten, dress has been worn and packed away, the flowers have been appreciated in all their glory and the dance floor has seen some serious action, what you have left as well as the memories are the photographs of your day.
Many couples feel a sense of post wedding blues, which is understandable after so much build up and excitement, but the photographs give them something to look forward to again and allow them to relive the day in their minds each time they look at them.
For this very reason, in my mind, picking our photographer was a task that should not be taken lightly.
Photographers can have different styles both in the way they shoot and how they edit the images in post production. You could ask ten photographers to shoot your wedding and be presented with ten completely different portfolios”
“It is the natural shots that we would want. There is definitely an art to this type of photography, to see those moments happening or about to happen and catch them discretely just at the right time. The photographer needs to always be one step ahead and this comes with experience and a creative eye”
“Having the option to hire two photographers (and to be able to request one male and one female) was a big attraction for me as it means the photographers could split their time in the morning. One was able to be with Damian and his groomsmen and the other (the female photographer) was able to be with me and my ladies at the venue. I felt a lot more comfortable having a woman around in the morning with lots of half naked ladies getting ready”.
