We’ve always loved the morning of a wedding and it remains one of our very favourite parts of the day. The morning preparations are always busy, sometimes a little bit frantic, but always exciting and fun and we try to capture as broad a range of emotions as we can.
Like most other parts of the day, we want to be in the background, quietly documenting the moments as they unfold with as little recognition of the cameras as possible.
Typically, we begin photographing ‘the preps’ 2 hours or so ahead of the ceremony time but this can vary with each wedding we see and we often start earlier. There’s no hard and fast rules, but generally speaking it’s best if the morning photos are given plenty of ‘breathing space’. Give us the time to capture the details, all the interactions and portraits and you’ll be rewarded with a lovely balanced set of images that really capture the mood during the build up to the wedding ceremony.
