Every wedding day is made up of different parts – getting ready in the morning, the ceremony, the reception, speeches, dancing. All of these have their own little stories to tell, and these stories are unique to each couple.
A wedding photographer will attend a high number of weddings throughout their career. You would think they would all begin to feel the same – but this is most definitely not the case. My passion is to find the little quirks of the day, like the flower girl pulling faces, the look of love as the groom sees his bride for the first time, or the happy grins on the faces of the newlyweds being cheered on by their family and friends. Those moments are what keeps us coming back again and again, and what makes being a wedding photographer such a magical experience.
There are many beautiful moments in a wedding day: some expected, and some not-so-expected. Here are a few of my favourites:

One of my favourite parts of the day – the feelings of anticipation, excitement and small twinges of nerves as the girls get ready together. This is the perfect time for candid photos of everyone having fun, drinking bubbly, and looking forward to the day to come. Check out this article to find out how to help your photographer capture amazing getting-ready photos.
The ceremony is, of course, the most important part of any wedding day. It is that part that every bride and Groom feels at least a few niggles of nerves before. But then there is the first kiss as husband and wife! It’s a lovely and iconic moment we all know well. It marks the start of a new life together; and more often than not signals a collective sigh as everyone can relax, knowing the important part is done – now it’s time to party!
My favourite kind!! There is no doubt about it, weddings are emotional, and happy tears from someone are almost inevitable. My favourite is when it is the Groom.
NB. Happy tears are contagious, the wedding photographer is human too, and can’t be responsible for slightly blurry photos at this point!
A wedding day can be hectic! Even the ones that seem relaxed fly by in a blur of joy, laughter, tears, friends, and dancing. It is so important to take time out and spend a few quiet moments with your new husband/wife. You may want to get back to the party, but savour this time, the photos are always worth it, and it gives you a moment to just enjoy each other.
As the Bride walks down the aisle towards the waiting Groom, all eyes are on him. But turn around and see the raw emotions on the face of the Bride as she sees the man she is going to marry. It is a moment that makes me catch my breath every time, and no wedding photographer wants to miss it.
These are the photos I am always searching for on a wedding day. Those beautiful impromptu instants that happen in between the big events, they make every wedding day individual and weave together all of the classic moments, to tell the full story of the day.
