TIPS FOR A DEAF WEDDING

I found some articles through Google, so I used some tips to help Deafies and hearies out!

BSL INTERPRETERS
Without BSL interpreters, Deafies won't enjoy at all apart from great food or free goodies. Interpreters have to be confident, thoughtful and friendly.. you wouldn't bring a smelly, ungrateful interpreter eh.


WAVING NOT CLAPPING!
Deaf people (except hard of hearing) can't hear clapping, so waving!


SLIDESHOW OR FILM
It keeps Deaf people entertained! As for Deaf culture, story-telling is good for them!


LOUD MUSIC
Yes most Deaf people love to dance and listen music! Bass is a must! Check the music wedding blog - We Plan, You Play if you are stuck for music ideas!


PROPER LIGHTING
Of course, dim light would be perfect but can be difficult for Deaf people, natural lighting through the big windows would be nice! Unfortunately there are not enough lamp-posts at wedding receptions.. 


WRITE TO COMMUNICATE
One way for hearing & deaf guest to communicate without using an interpreter is to use a small notepad & write back and forth. Why not mobile too?


DEAF VENDORS
Deaf photographers (like me!) there are many Deaf stylists, Deaf make-up artists, Deaf chefs....

Featured on We Plan, You Play



















One day before I was off to the Down Under, I was in East London photographing wedding bloggers on a retro rooftop (more like LA-style!) for a bokehiful We Plan, You Play blog promo shoot. Who are bloggers? That’s Josie from Savoir Weddings & Charley from London Bride; they are so cool! It is such
an honor to have my images on We Plan, You Play AND UK’s greatest wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride!

For those of you who are music lovers, you must check this blog if you are stuck for ideas!

Josie cooked us an amazing shepherd pie after the shoot! Watch out, Gordon!
