Every bride and groom (to be) that we meet here at Kiss Photography, and we seem to be meeting a lot lately, in fact its sort of become a full time job, are different, and quite rightly so. This also means the wedding’s will also be different. Its funny, weddings are so very steeped in tradition, and yet no wedding is the same.
The tradition part never gets lost, however off the wall, or different the wedding is; for example, we have never attended a wedding that doesn’t have a cake. Now the cakes all vary, from the grand royal icing number, some even have a horizontal tiered effect with bridges from one part to another, to the simple cake that granny made. The fairy cake (very popular) the cake made of rounds of cheese, it goes on and on….but we all have the cake!
Flowers: I have yet to see a wedding that has no flowers. Again I have been at weddings where the flowers cost thousands and thousands to ceremonies where the bride and her friends picked wild flowers from the local meadows and woods, but there are always flowers.
There is always a ring, sometimes two, I wonder what would happen if you announced on the day, to the person holding the service ” i dont have a ring, I dont want a ring” Are you still allowed to be married???? Of course! but what about the part of the service where you put the ring on the finger, what happens to that line?
So tradition aside, that none of us seem to defer from, weddings are as individual as the bride and groom themselves.
We have been at the Italian wedding, the bride and groom doesnt even know half the guests there are so very many, the Tarentella is danced, the meal consistis of a min. of 15 courses! We have been to a sit down fish and chip shop, followed by a night club, we have been to weddings of 12 guests to weddings of 500 guests, weddings in castles, weddings in villages halls, weddings at home, weddings in some elses home, because its bigger.
Whatever the wedding, whatever the theme, whatever day you get married, they are all truly wonderful and spectacular and so very very special. We always feel honoured to be asked to photograph a wedding, how amazing is our job? we get to go to hundreds of these amazing, traditional, yet different days!
