Choose whether you want the marriage day to be captured or the previous preparation also.

Hunt down all the possible avenues:

Wedding photography is a booming industry, so you may well wish for word-of-mouth publicity to choose your dream marriage shutter bug at Apart from doing simple Google search, you should also take help of social networking sites. Many photographers put up their marriage-special images in their Face book profiles or Instagram account. Go through them and you will get a fair idea whom to ring up for your own D-day.
Review the portfolios:
Once you short-list 2-3 potential photographers and set up interviews, request them to come along with their portfolios. There is a hard-core group of marriage shutterbugs and there is a group of wannabe fashion photographers who does freelancing jobs in wedding market. If you have a critical eye then you will be able to understand instantly- who is the specialist here and who is not.

So a careful reviewing is need-of-the-hour here.
Look for the human connect:

Both of you need to be on the same boat- in terms of exchange of ideas and gathering creative inputs together. Check out whether the photographer is open enough to your suggestions regarding the whole creative process or not. On the other hand, the one who is eager to bear all your whim-and-fancies without having any say; is also unsuitable for the job.

Find a person, who is balanced in this respect, and will help you to focus on other vital aspects of the occasion at ease.
