So shot my 2nd wedding yesterday, sort of a last minute deal - was asked two weeks ago to do it, reluctantly said yes. So having been busy right up to yesterday I never had a chance to get to the church before hand to scope it out so I arrived an hour or so early to check it out. It's a really modern church (approx 5 -6 years old) and the sexton told me that as long as I was outside the black line that runs around the altar I should be fine.
Priest arrives and I ask him if he has any restrictions during the ceremony. With a smile he said 'Just stay out of my way, shoot whatever and whenever you want and flash away'. Happy days.

Getting a bit long winded this so to cut to the chase I positioned myself to the priests left side and slightly behind him. Perfect view of the B&G, got lovely photos of the blessing of the rings, the vows and then exchanging of the rings. Priest then says 'There's something missing' and asks them to turn to face their family and friends and says 'the kiss'. So I'm totally out of position for the first kiss :(

But I did capture the 2nd kiss and I love it. :)

PS I know the verticals are off - I'll fix that in the final product :)

Thanks Tom, I thought so too. Certainly better than the first kiss which was more an embarrassing quick peck on the lips.

No he isn't, the noise reduction software has smoothed out his skin. This is just a quick edit so will definitely look at that in the final version. Thanks for all the comments.

The B&G look exceedingly young.
