As promised, here are a few more beautiful wedding photos from Lysanda and Mark’s wedding held last weekend. It was a special ceremony with personal vows and a heartfelt blessing delivered by Sister Marcie. Lysanda looked absolutely stunning in her inspired vintage dress that had gorgeous intricate beading. Mark looked ultra-smart in his white dinner jacket with classic black lapels.
Both Mark and Lysanda also had the pleasure of having of their daughters present to witness to the blessed union.
I absolutely loved photographing this wedding as the afternoon light was at just the right position to provide perfect back-lighting for the kiss. I often try to do something a little different for the special kiss; as I know that most of the guests have cameras and will take the same shot down the aisle, as will my second photographer. So I often look for a different angle whilst also taking into consideration where I am allowed to stand during the ceremony, as some weddings have strict regulations so photographers do not interfere with the proceedings.
In this wedding I chose to shoot from the rear of the bride and groom, with the guests standing behind them. The sun was positioned at their backs and I was able to take a lovely back lit photo of the two of them.
Here are some other great tips for taking wedding ceremony photographs.
