Wedding Timeline Recommendation for a 5 Hour Wedding Celebration

We have done weddings that lasted for 3 hours and some that lasted for 8 hours but majority of the wedding we have done so far revolves around the 5 hour timeline.

A few couples have asked us how did this 5 hour breakdown into its components so we gathered our stats and you would find below how these weddings typically broke down into the activities.

Aggressive? yes. Doable? definitely - we have seen it ourselves! The key is proper planning, excellent vendor selection and to have, as much as possible, an "on the day coordinator" that can run the activities on time.

Recommended Timeline for a 5 Hour Wedding Photography Coverage

  • Preparation: 30 minutes
  • Transition from the Preparation Location to the ceremony location: 15 minutes
  • Ceremony: 1 hour
  • Post Ceremony Family and Couple Pictures: 30 minutes
  • Transition from the Ceremony to the Reception location: 15 minutes
  • Cocktail Hour: 30 minutes
  • Announcement: 15 minutes
  • Dinner/Toasts/Cake Cutting: 1 hour
  • Dances: 30 minutes
  • Bouquet/Garter Toss: 15 minutes
  • End of Reception and Coverage
