Considerations Choosing My Favourite Wedding Venues around Pretoria East
As a wedding photographer and service provider, we see a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff that you as a potential client might not know of, or as a bride find out on the day. These are a few things that get me excited about a venue, other that the beauty and obviously good food.
When I am greeted and introduced to the staff I would interact with I feel welcome and valued.
Venues will set up a table for service providers separate from your guests where we can eat, and just refresh without disrupting our service or your guests. Although a pretty setup is always nice, we do understand it cost money and therefore appreciate a corner table with chairs just to get our energy back. That might be the first time we have a sip of water or something substantial to eat.
I have had venues where staff would help carry gear when it starts to rain. Such service that goes beyond what is asked for is amazing.
Some waiters will remember us and ask if they can keep the water jug filled for us. I would only assume they would do the same for the bride and groom.
So my conclusion is, if they treat us as service providers this well, your guests will also be treated well and is that not what you want on your wedding day?
These venues I will be showing you are only a few of the good ones I had the privilege of working at. Visit them, chat with the co-ordinator and decide where you would like to celebrate your happily ever after.
