An American Trend
"The First Look" - 5 minutes before the ceremony - Kristiana and Tony
Like many things that start in America the "First Look" crossed the Atlantic and arrived in Blighty some five years ago, ten years after it first appeared in the U.S.
For couples who want to see each other before the ceremony this affords their photographer the opportunity to capture photographs that document the emotion of the moment in a sequence of images.
That is not to say that similar emotion cannot be seen when couples first make eye contact in the aisle of the church. Although non-traditional and not for everyone, for a number of brides who wish to see their groom in advance of the ceremony, this provides another option.

Vicki looking stunning arriving at Longton Methodist church in the Strand, Longton in a split screen classic Volkswagen camper van. The Strand, if you don't know, is a busy high street and the appearance of Vicki put a smile on all the shoppers' faces.

Marie and Andy - Upper House Wedding Photography, Barlaston, Staffordshire.
The first kiss for newly weds Marie and Andy.
This wedding was held at Newcastle under Lyme Registration office. The couple booked me for 3 hours, the minimum time I offer. However, this gave me time to photograph the couple arriving, the ceremony and still have time for some shots in Brampton park located adjacent to the venue,
