Weddings are full of emotions, love, joy and happiness being the main ones and sometimes frustration too. After weeks, months or years of planning the eagerly anticipated wedding day arrives and in my view the role of the wedding photographer is to record the day’s events and of course capture some stunning images of the bride and groom. I do this in my reportage style trying to tell the story of the wedding through images. When I first started out as a wedding photographer the job was to record the key elements and the required group images and this was relatively straight forward, but now things have changed. The groom’s first glimpse of the bride, the little girl playing, the tear in the bride’s eye, the group laughter, the father’s loving look. These and more are the moments I look and listen for. These spontaneous moments help tell the story of the wedding day. Some involve the bride and groom but others do not so it’s these hidden moments that I love to record and share. These moments are not staged or posed they are natural and beautiful and give an insight into the real wedding day, a day full of love, joy and happiness. Here are three of my favourites.
