Whilst wholeheartedly agreeing with the sentiment above, about the correct spelling. An Aisle is the walkway down the side of a church, the walkway through the knave isn't an aisle.

It probably will be soon, as we tend to alter the meaning of words following years of misuse. And this ones been going on for a long time.


I'll get my coat......

An aisle is simply a walkway between sections of seats. Weddings don't necessarily have to happen in a church.

An isle has nothing to do with where people are walking for the processional or recessional.

Indeed an aisle can be found in restaurants, supermarkets and lots of places. So in a civil ceremony, the couple could well be walking down an aisle. But in a church, the Aisle is the name of the walkways at the sides of the main body of the church. In general coversation when we discuss brides walking down the Aisle we are more likely to picture a church than a supermarket

An isle has nothing to do with any of the above, as it's a small island.

But you're aware of all that and rather than partially agreeing with me, you chose to construct your answer as if I was wrong. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Well it's in the Knave, and it's not the Aisle - although it could be described as an aisle, if you wanted to descibe it. It's definitely not an isle though.

But so we're all on the same page - if you said aisle, we'd know what you meant, whether it's right or not.

I'll bet most clergy would call it the aisle in conversation, in the same way we say PIN number even though we know its wrong.

So... where did my thread take the left turn, and who do I blame!?

Can we get this thing back on track now?
Here are a few pictures from the wedding I shot last weekend that caused me to post this thread. I don't post any of the processional but they all turned out pretty sharp. I just snapped off a crap load of pictures figuring a least one of each couple would turn out sharp.

We both used continuous AF throughout the last wedding. I did switch to single AF during the formals so I could focus and recompose since the AF points didn't stretch out across the viewfinder (D700) as much as I needed.
