Unexpected Wedding Moments

A wedding is a truly wonderful day and I love photographing all sorts of weddings and to me they are all unique and special.

Weddings are full of wonderfully romantic, emotional and special moments. However, there are sometimes unexpected moments that happen which are often very funny! I feel these are part of your wedding day for you to also look back on and laugh at.

It might not just be an unexpected moment that no one knows will happen, it may be a planned surprise which is unexpected for the bride and groom.

Either way my job as your wedding photographer is to tell the story of your wedding day, which for me includes these moments. Below I share some examples of these from past weddings I have photographed, as well as explain a little about how these moments came to be.

Please note no one was harmed in these photographs and I would never take a photo of a serious situation resulting in an injury to anyone at the wedding.

Bride Clare's veil had a life of its own in the September breeze. During their confetti throw the veil almost took off and right into poor Clare's face.

Never trust a group of groomsmen to lift up a bride for a photo. Bride Claire was completely fine and was caught before she hit the floor. In style she laughed it off.

Groom Max's face says it all as he puts the wedding ring on his bride's finger and it wont go. I'm pleased to say it did eventually go on.

Saving the best for last

One of my favourites is gorgeous little Vinnie making a scene during his Mum and Dad's ceremony. He took a liking to the plinths and got inside one, then had to be prized out by the Mother of the Bride. Having a son myself I know how cheeky they can be!

I hope you have enjoyed this slightly different blog, and it brought a smile to your face. Something that is always unexpected and uncertain on a wedding day is the weather. See here for my blog all about rainy wedding days.
