Setting the date for your wedding can be one of the hardest parts of your wedding planning.

Some couples will choose a date that is sentimental to them – the anniversary of when they first met, first started dating or got engaged, and so on. Sometimes couples will choose an anniversary of their parents or grandparents to honour them if they’re not around anymore. Other times they might want to get married on one of their birthdays.

Other times they know that they want to get married in a particular season or month so that narrows it down a bit.

If you haven’t set the date yet and are looking for some inspiration, here’s a guide to dates for 2021 and 2022 that are bound to be popular (for different reasons!)

Hi. I am curious to know if you do a wedding package that includes a family shoot AND a engagement shoot ( just the future bride and groom) at all?
