An important person once said "timing is everything". Actually, I looked it up, and it's probably more correct to say that many important people (and many more not-so-important-people) said something along those lines: “The right thing at the wrong time is the wrong thing.” “Time is an illusion, timing is an art.” "You don't have to swing hard to hit a home run. If you've got the timing, it'll go." If you are looking for a butterfly but dismiss it as a caterpillar, you haven't missed finding a butterfly, you have just arrived at the wrong time! With photography, timing can be very important. The reason is mostly down to lighting. I've had quite a lot of couples ask me to help set their timing for their wedding day, based around the best available light for photographs.

You then find it hard justifying spending extra money on something that is a compromise. Here are a few tips and tricks to choosing a wedding venue in your budget.
