Hi everybody, and welcome back to another wedding photography blog post. Last month I spoke about how things were looking up for people wanting host their wedding this summer, and also about optimism within the wedding industry (click here for the link). The announcement by the government this week wasn't exactly quite what we were hoping for, delaying the loosening of all restrictions for a further four weeks, but we are slowly getting there. I hope this means that for those of you who are planning weddings - or attending any - you will be looking forward to them even more.
I found myself looking through some images here in Warwickshire recently, and couldn't help but smile at many of them. And I realised there was a theme to this. Yes, a lot of energy goes into putting together formal group photos that are requested by the Bride & Groom. Also a lot of thought and consideration goes into capturing the formal Bride & Groom photos. However, it's at other times during the day that helps tell a story and fills the gaps. These can be described as snapshots, or perhaps "moments": wedding moments.
Moments that aren't staged; when people are oblivious to other things going on around them. Moments that only last a second or two. Moments when people may not realise that a camera is pointing their way. Moments that really add interest when viewed after the event.
Some wedding moments will be witnessed by others in attendance but other moments can be missed entirely. This is what makes them priceless. If any of these images include someone or something particularly precious to the Bride & Groom, then all the better.
A wedding day is one of those days in your life that is incomparable to any other. Your close family members are there, many of your best friends are also present. They will be witnessing you and your partner become Husband and Wife. All of these wedding moments that are taking place during this day are just as priceless, cherished, invaluable and even irresistible.
Let's keep looking forward to better, and safer, times ahead. Let's keep dreaming big. We are so close to getting there. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and Stay Fabulous. Martin.
