Over the summer season we will be releasing a series of blogs with helpful tips for our brides to be. Todays Figtree Tip is nice and simple, hangers!
If you are hiring a house or apartment for your wedding morning preparations, a lot of the time you will find plastic/odd hangers in the wardrobes. We love capturing your beautiful gown, bridesmaids dresses and suits however it can be really tricky or sometimes impossible with dodgy plastic hangers.
So here’s our Figtree Tip, bring your own coat hangers. We recommend wooden hangers with a turning hook so we can hang in beautiful doorway, window frame or even from a tree branch. This super small investment can change the overall look of imagery. Its something you can keep forever, as well as a sweet keepsake for your bridal party.
“Alice from Figtree was amazing with me on the day and her work speaks for itself – all the photos are breathtaking, we love them all so much. She was kind and patient and warm to me on the day and I really felt a sense of security from her. Both photographers were great and we’re so happy we chose Figtree. They are true professionals!!” – Colbie + Chris

Tell us a little about your day…
Our wedding day was… indescribably magical and unbelievably fun! There was a little rain about in the morning which forced a wet weather decision to be made for the ceremony…. it turned out unnecessary but it was the best thing because the indoor ceremony was absolutely stunning and very intimate with everyone all squashed in! We laughed with our loved ones from start to finish. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our day, it was perfection!
What was your fave part or moment from your day?
The ceremony was amazing, Annie (celebrant) did an absolutely sensational job of being perfectly romantic and perfectly witty. Everyone was entertained and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room by the end of our vows. It was extremely overwhelming, the response we got.
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Choose experienced vendors!!! – they will be the difference between smooth sailing and a rocky ride. Our vendors were all so amazing, and they knew how to keep us to the schedule and time line. We were so happy with every single thing we chose, and Glad we did the extra research to make sure!
