As a father of two young daughters, I can only imagine the mixture of feelings that I will go through on their wedding days. It truly must be one of the most bittersweet moments anyone must experience: the joy of seeing them start out on a new life with someone they love dashing against the sorrow of seeing your little girl all grown up and maybe becoming a little further from your arms as a consequence. As I say, I can only imagine at this stage. I am in no rush to go through that myself!

This conflict of emotions was so evident in this mum’s face. I saw her approaching her daughter after the ceremony and waited for this moment to unfold between the two of them. It’s always a great privilege to be a part of someone’s wedding day. To be able to document moments like these is really something very special indeed.

Have a great weekend everyone!

We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediat ...

The first dance between a man and wife is a very touching moment indeed to document. It is a time of intense intimacy played out in a public setting, which always evokes a lot of emotion between the newlyweds. It is at times like these that the style of the photographer comes to the forefront and dictates a lot about how the bride and groom (and their guests) will remember their wedding day. Some photographers choose to get very close to the bride and groom with on-camera flash going off every few seconds even going so far as to stop the dance to have the bride and groom stop to look down the lens with a cheesy grin - I have seen this happen ...
