The Wedding Ceremony: What to expect
Every wedding is different. The key is to capture the mood and the joy of the day, without getting in the way!
I have photographed a wide range of weddings, from a registry office which may only take a few hours, to weddings in Churches or Hotel venues which take all day. I don't have any set time limits, I am there to photograph and capture as many memories as I can for your special day.
Just like the detail that goes into planning the wedding itself, which can take many months, I always like to meet you and discuss your requirements for the day so that I can give you exactly what you want.
In most cases clients request a mixture of editorial style unposed photographs, with a few posed family photographs.
In advance of the wedding I like to spend time with you to create a list of pictures and build a framework that I will be working to, however, I remain flexible at all times and often take many more photographs, always going the extra mile.
As the official wedding photographer, I get special access to areas of the ceremony which means I can stand anywhere and move around during the ceremony, this means I can get as close as I need to whilst remaining discreet to photograph those really special moments when vows are being taken, rings being exchanged and the first kiss!
At he end of the Wedding Ceremony, I will assemble everyone at the best location to take the main photographs before moving on to the wedding breakfast.
As I mentioned at the start of this section, I prefer to take a mixture of unposed and posed photographs. The trend is towards everything being unposed, which I am happy to do if my client wants that style. However, in my experience, people always want a number of posed photographs to capture close relatives and family. I do however, always leave that decision to my clients. I just don't believe in taking photographs unless I think the client will like them!
