Hey! I am Katie a wedding photographer based right on the border of Suffolk and Essex.
I have been capturing weddings full time since 2010 so it was a very surreal moment when I actually got engaged myself in September 2015 to my partner of 6 years Jack.
We met in a very unromantic setting of our local pub *cough Wetherspoons!* on a wintery, drunken night back in October 2009 and the rest as they say is history!
I am a massive country bumpkin who is never happier then taking walks with my little dog Mossy and enjoying some good food!
Having experienced hundreds of weddings it was been a real eye opener to actually arrange my own! Despite all my experience I still found the whole thing to begin with quite overwhelming!
I am also at the age where lots of friends all seem to be getting married too and I was surprised at how many didn't even know where to begin with their planning!
This is where the 'Get Wed' dream came to form...
Hello! I'm Kerrie. I got engaged on Christmas day 2015 to Russell, it came as such a shock to me as I'd started to believe I'd forever be the photographer and never the bride!
We met just over 5 years ago in the modern romantic way... whilst out one night 'merry' (drunk!) in a bar in Colchester.
We're being a little bit alternative by having a celebrant marry us in the woods on our wedding day, and I have my fingers crossed that Tagg (our Fox Red Labrador) will be our ring-bearer.
Like Katie, I'm also a professional full time wedding photographer based in Manningtree on the Essex/Suffolk border. I adore my job, but it has meant I've seen too much, I now have too many ideas and I don't think the budget will ever stretch!! (whoops!)
I also found that actually when it came to making my own wedding plans, I literally had no clue where to even start.
We think everyone needs someone to help them through this phase, and I'm pretty certain Get Wed is going to be such a useful tool, not only for us but everyone else too!
