bride getting ready!!
When you think of weddings, the first picture that comes to mind is the bride in a long white wedding dress and long white wedding veil ….but it doesn’t have to be that way(white). The wedding is supposed to be a special day for the couples, so I think the colour issue is down to the bride’s choice, there is no need to worry about following the tradition. Probably mother wouldn’t approve, if this is not a case then go for it if you feel fabulous in pink or blue or black..It doesn’t matter ! See, the bride was in a satin pink, a nice colour for a soft and feminine look..
The right hand side(facing the stage) is the groom’s family and friends…
The guests were invited to the joyful wedding and gave their support and best wishes to the happy couple.
The left hand side(facing the stage) is bride’s family and friends.
The groom was ready and waiting for his bride!!
The bride was waiting with her father outside of the entrance for a few minutes,
then the bride came in walking down the isle on her fathers’ arm.
The Minister said a few words on the significance of marriage first, and then the couple took their wedding vow in turn,repeating the words after the minister..
I had a restriction on using flash and moving around or shooting legal documents during the ceremony.
The Minister only allowed me standing still on the left side.I like to get some good shots at the wedding. How could I
miss the details!! so I had to have a few seconds shooting from the back.
The groom and bride exchanged vows and wedding rings.
The Minister declared that the couple were husband and wife.

The legal certificate is the official record that two people have undertaken a marriage ceremony.
