Hiya, do you think it's worth paying the extra to get pictures took whilst we are getting ready or just take pics with our cameras during that time. The photographer is charging a bit more to capture this part of the day and just need advice whether it's worth it!?

I'm a wedding photographer and I love attending to do the getting ready pictures, but in truth, I don't think many of these images ever make into a wedding album - maybe a handful at best. However, as others have said, they can be a lovely memory of the early part of the day. Camera's on phones are OK, but if you had to compare some pictures taken on a phone and one by a professional, the difference would be obvious. It also depends how long before you get married they are talking about arriving, I usually suggest 2hrs max. Bottom line is, only you can decide, but I always say, if a picture is taken, it can be deleted/never see the light of day if you don't like it. but if its never taken, its a moment gone forever.
