Wedding ceremonies....the pinnacle of any wedding day and a golden opportunity for some really great photos, as you tie the knot.
I’ve photographed a wide range of wedding ceremonies and blessings in my time as a wedding photographer; church weddings, stately home weddings, castle weddings, barn weddings, outdoor weddings, farm weddings, teepee weddings…..there is so much choice now when it comes to places in which you can say your ‘I Do’s’.
Whether I’m working with a vicar, priest, registrar or celebrant, my approach to photographing ceremonies is broadly the same. My objective is to document the vows, but in a way that is both discreet and unobtrusive.
I talk my couples through this approach in advance of their wedding day, to ensure that this fits their plans and I do suggest that its raised with the official due to hold the ceremony, in advance of the day, to ensure that they are both aware and comfortable with a photographer being present.
For those of you currently planning your big day, consider the following, to ensure that you get the most from your ceremony images.
